AD: 3 Sterilising Products for the Mum on-the-Go!

I’m working in a paid relationship with BritMums promoting the Munchkin 59S Mini Steriliser Portable UV Sanitiser. Get more information at

If there’s one thing mums are passionate about, it’s the health, safety and hygiene of their children. I chat with mums both in real life and online and that priority always sticks out. While babies and kids tend to often drop their bottles, dummies and toys, we really can’t stand the thought that they might be exposed to harmful germs. This concern shows itself in several ways with regular activities including the frequent sterilisation of baby utensils. 

In doing this though, many mums and parents also really easy, efficient sterilising methods. Finding the balance between that peace of mind and relative ease can often be a Herculean task.

Oh weaning! [insert very mild barely audible sigh]

Even before I had a baby, I totally looked forward to the weaning and introduction of solids to my kids. I remembered some of the fun things we had done when my little sister started eating solids and how in particular we’d mash up potatoes for her.


No More Cranky Mornings: Five Tips For a Better Night Sleep

I’m sorta doing cartwheels right now because this post is sponsored by Leesa Mattress, which we three have been using for the past month and absolutely loving it. I say “three” because yes indeed we’ve been co-sleeping with our son. It seemed unfair to have this new amazing mattress to ourselves so we let him join us! Okay I kid.


How We Almost Travelled By Air With Our 5 Week Old Son (+ tips to travel with a baby)

Everyone knows having a baby changes pretty much your entire life. But one thing we had hoped wouldn’t overly change was our travel. Not because we are crazy travel enthusiasts but because it was something we had come to enjoy so much in recent times.


For the Laid-Back Traveller / Non-Adrenaline Junkie: 6(+1) Activities You Can Truly Enjoy in Dubai

My mum has to be the least travel enthusiastic person I know. Especially when it comes to air travel. I don’t particularly think it’s a phobia, it’s just a case of zero interest. She’d over-rationalise in her head whether she really has to go. She’s definitely one of those people who would not understand how these 9 female travel enthusiasts just pack up their bags and (solo) travel!

JORD Wood watch men and women

Have you heard of Jord wood watch? I’ll share more about it shortly but first a little back story.

A friend Wumi recently tweeted that she was going to be so extra for her pre-wedding, wedding and her pregnancy photoshoots. I replied to her tweet saying I didn’t know how to be extra even I wanted to. Then she said “… but you know you’re low key extra with your husband“. Another mutual friend Nims replied saying, “more like perfect key“.

Jord wood watch review

This post is pretty much a Jord Wood Watch review.

But more importantly, I’m excited that one lucky reader gets a chance to win a pretty watch from JORD. And if they pick the same one as I did, then maybe we can be watch twins! Although I can almost guarantee that they’d have a tough time picking (as I did!) – because JORD has so many beautiful wood watches.


Hair Struggles and a Review of Irresistible Me Hair Clip-ins!

February 7, 2017

If I’m being honest, my hair often gives me a tough time, and a bad hair day happens more often than I’d like. I haven’t been able to come up with the perfect go-to and easy hair or signature hair style. And that’s probably for a couple of reasons:

  1. My head hurts easily. So braids and wigs aren’t a fave.
  2. I always want to touch my scalp (and my husband wants to touch it too).
  3. Not a fan of hair nets & scarves – because of number 1
  4. I don’t like spending too long in the salon.

But this year, I’m determined to put in a bit more effort. So in my January recap post, I mentioned how it’s just a few weeks into the year and I’ve already switched up my hair in three different ways.


Amusing Sewing Tales (+ Learn to Sew Easy Online!)

“Babe, how can you not know how to sew a button”?

That’s what Tee said to me one hot afternoon, a few years back and while we were still dating. He had a puzzled look on his face and I can imagine I’d just dashed his hopes of looking like a ‘well-groomed hottie‘ that day. He had retrieved his laundered shirts from the dry cleaners earlier that morning and realised just before coming into Uni that the middle button had fallen off. He thought he’d stop by my room and I’ll help him sew it back on!
