Christmas gift Ideas for the girlfriends.

I made a list last year on 5 gift ideas for your girl friends. Well, this year, my list is longer and better!

I love the season of giving, and always take pride in picking out gifts for my close girl-friends. I take the time to curate what 's out there and match them to what the girlies will like ( of what i think they will like). Sometimes, the simplest of gifts are the ones that they appreciate the most.

Here's what I have curated so far...

For the beauty buffs

1) Mary Kay Satinlips Lip Mask and Lip Balm.

This unsuspecting tube of lip mask does wonders to dry and chapped lips. Personally, I don't like to wear lip colour. So, to complete my daily look, I need make sure my lips don't look to dry.. or worst still peeling.

The mask is so easy to use. Just spread a thin layer over your lips, leave for about 5 to 10 minutes before wiping it off with warm water. You will notice dead skin on the cotton ( if you used one) and your lips instantly plumps up. Complete with the lip balm to moisturise, and you will notice lip colour lasts longer if you apply them after using the mask. 

Here's a review of the product from another blogger.

If you are keen to get these, PM me. I can direct you on how to purchase.

2) ESOD (Extra Simple Ordinary Minerals) Mineral Make-up 

I never knew the difference between mineral make-up and non-mineral makeup until I tried ESOD.  My personal favourite are their glows. 
I use them as highlighters and they can last the entire day. Not a big fan of heavy make-up, so this works very well for me. Give it a try. Best thing about them is that you can request for samples at absolutely no cost.

For the fitness fairies

3)  Fitbit Flex.

It looks sleek, and is the most basic fitness tracking device. Link it to any of your mobile device and you are on your way to getting fit. I have had this over close to a year now. It will really help in tracking your input (food intake) and output (calories burnt based on execise done). 

There are of course other models to choose from and are available for sale at outlets such as Challenger.

For the accessories lover

4) Indie designed jewellery on Pinwheel Jewels
The people at Pinwheel Jewels bring in jewellery from all over the world, and they carry designs from home grown Joanne L.

I got a bunch of delicately beautiful pieces from Pinwheel Jewels in October. Other than having absolutely pretty little things, service was great too.

5) Personalised Jewellery from Adeline's Loft 

If you prefer to have something customised for your bestie, then you can speak to Adeline from "Adeline's Loft". I always admired her creations, and they are truly unique. Adeline is a home-based jewellery artisan, and I secretly hope that in future, when I stop being an FTWM, I can pick up my tools again, and learn from her. 


For the fun loving bunch

6) A Photoshoot with Jemanci.

I was meant to have a 2 pax photoshoot with the bff at Jemanci this month. Unfortunately, due to my IVF schedules, I cancelled it. However, just  by how Jeremy ( photographer and brains behind Jemanci) followed up with our booking, and the effort to know us to create the best pictures for us, demonstrated his professionalism.

One of the best presents you can give your BFF is time spent with them, and of course capturing your friendship on film. 


I hope you find this list of gifts useful! It is still not too late to pick that perfect gift for the girlies!

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.

Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.

At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
