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…

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. This time it came in a little later for me; towards the 1 month mark. POST BABY BODY Leaking boobs, stretch marks that may be forever noticeable, loose skin…

WHY WE ARE MOVING


WE’VE JUST PURCHASED ANOTHER Feeling like this right now! In the same mood as when I was pregnant with Luna, we’re over the moon. We purchased our very first property back in 2014, our second in 2015 & now our third in 2021. Unlike the first two, this purchase is not for investment. It’s gonna be our home! We didn’t…

THE EXCLUSIVE PUMPER DIARIES

From the immediate nurse straight after my delivery, family doctor & through to some of you guys who have DM me with requests for me to address your concerns about this. Let’s be clear though, whether I am breastfeeding directly from…

MY BIRTH STORY / A NEW MOON


My Water Broke While I Was 4:20AM Woke up as per usual to urinate & noticed that I had wet my side of the bed. My immediate thought was “did my water break or is this pee?”. Even with minimal leakage as I stood up I was still not convinced that my water had broke because I didn’t experience that…

WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG


Self + Oral Care Toothpaste & brush because I most likely will be spending a night at the hospital. They’re quite strict on visitor numbers & hours now due to covid, only 2 visitors are allowed at a time (infants are included as 1 visitor). So this time I’m not packing my makeup bag since I won’t be seeing anyone.…

GENDER & NAME – BABY Nº2


Gender There were so few of you who guessed girl this time around, guess you were all hoping for a boy like I was Lol Nonetheless, still super excited to welcome our second baby girl into our family! As I mentioned in my “Pregnancy with Baby Nº2” post, this bub was very much planned. I’ve always like the idea of…

LIFE’S BETTER WITH A BORDER COLLIE


If You Want A Health & Mood Booster Just before Daniel & I moved out to live together we decided to get a puppy. Not the best timing I’ll tell you that. We fell into a little financial stress too because it happened so suddenly, but it really made us happier & our relationship stronger because we got through tough…
