2021 ACHIEVEMENTS


① BOUGHT OUR 3RD Feeling adult AF because we bought our home! We finally have a place where we can call our very own home. This has created a new chapter for our girls & us as a family. Just feels like we’ve contributed to them as parents. Like not just buying them a fancy toy, but a home &…

A THING OF THE PAST, STRETCH MARKS


  BODY CONFIDENT I can finally say that my pregnancy stretch marks are now a thing of the past. It has faded so much, you can barely even notice it. I’ve only been using my usual body moisturiser & baby oil (vitamin E). I wasn’t that consistent with application so it was not a daily thing, but I guess I…

NEW FAVOURITE SKINCARE PRODUCTS


REJUVENATE Intraceuticals Rejuvenate 3 Step Layering Set is hands down my new favourite thing for my skin right now.

POSTPARTUM CHECKUP 🌑


SAME SAME, You think it’d be easier this second time around considering I’ve had experience. Unfortunately, it ain’t the same. Emotions & anxiety were at times beyond control & off the roof.

Let’s be clear though, whether I am breastfeeding directly from…

FOOD FOR THE PICKY TODDLER


  My toddler’s gotta list of foods that she refuses to eat & it’s multiplying LOl Nova has become quite picky which has lead to meal times being dragged out as her preference determines how quickly she will finish meals. It varies from 10mins to 1hr. A whole forking hour, who has the patience for that. No, not me, not…

WHY BREASTFEEDING YOUR 2ND IS DIFFERENT TO YOUR 1ST


Latching On You’d think that from the many months of breastfeeding your first child that it’d be easier with your second, nope. Still hurts like a bish. This is because every baby has a different latching on experience. If your bub is having some trouble latching on then that can lead to breastfeeding problems in the first week or two…
