The brightening range

You know, it has been awhile since my skin has been properly treated. You see, after going through the motions of pregnancy, I noticed that my skin's texture seemed to have dulled down quite a bit, and was thus not as radiant or as smooth as it was before. I am pretty sure that some mothers out there would agree with me, but usually after giving birth, you would need to keep things in check, and one big factor of that which would usually get impacted would be of course the skin.

When in Milan | The Metro & Locations Do's & Don'ts

4.8.17


Whilst in Milan

Upon marking our third day in Milan, it was heavily noted that public transportation, like the Metro was going to be our main mode of passage to get around and about here. There are other ways of course like Uber and MyTaxi, but upon good research and recommendation, this was not highly suggested, as most of the tourist attractions would be high in traffic, thus making the riders fee rather expensive, plus having difficulty in allocating a vehicle nearby in order to take you there.

C. Michael London | Stem Cell Professional

31.7.17


At the salon

If you have noticed on social media, my hair color has changed, from a dark shade of ebony black to a warm highlight of a golden red. Now, you need to know that there wasn't any particular reason for this hair transformation, but because it was from a brand that I have known for years (the brand has been around for more than 40 years) and loved immensely before, I personally wanted to get in touch with their range once again and hence the coloring commenced.

25.7.17

24.7.17


Upon heading out

OffSpring Natural | A Must Have For Parents

17.7.17


On Offspring Natural

Being a new mum, I am pretty fresh to the parenthood game and the one thing that always used to confuse me was diapers. It essentially began with how many to buy, then how much I would need on a daily basis, the comfort of it all and then it started to trail off to whether my daughter would have a reaction to it.

Kay-Kay All Plant Protein Powder | Happy Parenting

5.7.17


On Parenting

Taking into account all the things that you would need to prep for upon the arrival of your little one, it is always good to take note on the things that you may need after the pregnancy as well.

16.6.17


On doing extensions

Being rather selective when it comes to where I do my eyelash extensions, a recent discovery of Japan's Blanc Eyelash Salon at Pavilion KL has renewed my perspective. You see, there are very few salons that offer natural yet alluring lashes, and while my lashes on its own are quite long, it is sadly lacking in volume and thus is quite sparse.
