My Cutie Pie - Part 1

Time flies so fast !! Kyan is 4 months old now. I still remember the day i gave birth. I was 2 days overdue and all i can say is just pain pain pain !!!!!! After 24 hrs contraction,  Kyan was born. He weighed 3255g  
( 7 lbs 2.82 oz )

I miss those time when Kyan was still inside my belly. The feeling was so amazing especially when he was moving or kicking!!!! I am enjoying motherhood even i feel tired and frustrated sometimes but being a mother, is Challenges and Blessings.

Seeing how my baby was growing week by week during my pregnancy is excited. Seeing how my baby is growing day by day now is full of happiness.

Actually he is sleeping in my arm now when i am blogging. I can't stop looking at him. He looks so cute even sleeping. Those eyebrows, nose, lips, ears, hands and his little tiny baby feet. Oh my god!!!! So adorable! I am not a crazy mom. I am just a mom who loves her son so much...LOL

A letter to Grandpa

Dear Grandpa,

How can i explain my feeling now ???? I feel so sad that you passed away !!!! When i received this sad news i really shocked. I have to tell you that i am so sorry because i am not able to go back for your funeral.

When i was a little kid i remember how much i scared of you and how difficult to talk to you because i hardly see you smile and you looked fierce all the time. I thought you did not like me!!!! When i was a teenage girl i realized that you were not the person i thought you were......You started to treat me more friendly. I remember that time you were a taxi driver and i always got a free ride home if i happened to see you in town. We started to talk in the taxi and that was the 1st time i felt you were a friendly grandpa.....

Although we did not spend much time together but i will never forget the memories you gave me !!!! May you rest in peace !!!!!

I just realized this is the only photo we took together

New Goodies for Autumn

I like high heel boots but now wedge boots are more comfortable for me 
when i go out with my baby, at least i still look chic.

It been a long time from last time i went for shopping. Few months back when i was still carrying my son, i really don have mood to shop because i don like those preggy clothes and seems no stylish clothes can fit me well. My shopping nerve is calling me again after my childbirth!!!! Even my body is not getting back in shape yet but Shopping makes me happy and i finally can buy something that i LIKE.

Here are some goodies i got after my son was born !!!!! I felt happy i got some new kicks for the coming fall ......

I never get bored of sweaters. I wish i could get more in different colors especially Burgundy. 
The necklace was in sales and i happy i found the last piece.
My very 1st piece of sweater skirt ( Knitted Skirt )

 As most of the peoples know sweater in the fall, a silk blouse in the spring, a cotton tee in summer.
But for me..Silk blouse can be GO TO outfit for fall...

New Season !!!!! New wardrobe !!!!!!!! Have you doing some new season shopping yet????

Makes Water Less Boring !!!!!!

Be honestly, i think plain flat water is so boring ! But then it is so important to us ! We need water everyday to ensure we are hydrated and healthy.

Most of us know that drinking a healthy amount of water make good effect on our skin. Water is really one of the best tools to moisturize from the inside out and clear up our skin. 

I am plagued by dryness now and i need more water to cope with the demands of my changing body during my pregnancy. So, i found an enjoyable way to make sure i am getting enough water everyday.

In the beginning, i only add lemon and mint leaves in water. It makes the taste better and makes me wanna drink more. It is so refreshing. But now i like to add cucumber also....Sometimes slices of watermelon...

Actually is really up to you !!!! There is many options! I even put basil leaves in water....This is how we can jazz up water in simple way.

Try it ! It is so easy !!! And of course enjoy the drink !

My All Time Favorites - Skin Care Products

There are some of the skin care products I have found that really work for me and i personally think they are good. I have been tried out so many products...From drugstore to high end brands but i have some of my all time favorites which i repeatedly used.

This is just for sharing Because we all have different skin types . my skin type is normal to combination. 

My skin can be so dry during the winter. So i always need to adjust 
my skin care products. 

  •  Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

Only a small amount  goes a long way and it leaves my skin feeling wonderfully soft and conditioned but not tight and dry even in winter time. No problem for me to use it all year round.

  • Vichy Aqualia Thermal Aqua Gel

This hydrating gel make my skin so refreshing and it penetrates  skin very quickly. I like to use it as a sleeping mask at night before i go to bed and my skin feels so soft and moist in the next morning. 

  • Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Cleansing Oil

There are 6 types of them for different skin types. And i am using 
CBO premium A/O for fatigued skin or skin with aging concerns ( Green Bootle ) and HPCO Fresh ( Pink Bootle ) for oily to combination skin with Cherry Extract to help exfoliate and tighten pores. This is a light textured oil which will refresh and refine skin.
I hate to remove make up but these make it so easy even able to remove heavy make up.

  • Origins Clear Improvement Mask

I always have whiteheads problem and oily T zone. So i only use this along my T-zone area and cheeks to help clear out my pore. I use this once a week and this is my 3rd tube. Lovely product!

ZA Metavoltage Exfoliating Cream And 

Origins Modern Friction ~ Gentle Dermabrasion 

I started to use Za Metavoltage cream so many years ago and i really like this exfoliating product. Just apply thin layer to the face and leave for 10 sec then gently rub it off. It is so easy and leave my skin so soft and clean. 

Another exfoliator i like a lot is Origins Nature´s Gentle Dermabrasion. I especially love the smell. My skin feel very comfy and smooth after using it. I even feel my pores appear to shrink

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

I use this on my pimples area. It soothes the pain and clam the redness spot. I kind of like the smell and sometimes i like to add few drops of tea tree oil to my foot bath. It is so relaxing and as i know Tea tree oil foot bath can help fight and even prevent the occurrence of fungal infections on the feet. 

My All Time Favorites - Make Up Products

What is your all time favorite make up products that you buy time and time again ?

Even though i like to try out new make up products but i have some that i always buy again and again . 

I did a quick scan of my make up bag and only found some i always repurchase over and over again.....

The following items are :

  • Dior Skin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 
This foundation is very light and provides good coverage. It looks very natural and is moisturizing without being greasy.  There are 12 shades available ranging from very light Ivory to dark brown.

  • Yves Saint Laurent 'Teint Parfait' Complexion Enhancer

This is a sheer oil free highlighter that can be used as a foundation base. Leave the skin silky smooth and helps my foundation settle perfectly. I used 01 Radiant Mauve because it helps to correct my uneven skin tone and gives my skin a perfect tonality. There are 7 colors available and different colors work to provide different results.

  • Imju Dejavu Fiberwig Lash Knockout Mascara

This is a japanese brand and i always like to try out japanese products! It doesn’t smudge or make me like panda eyes. Not even after a whole day of wearing it. It makes good volume since it is a "volume film mascaraand gives length to my lashes with no clumping. I don´t like stubborn mascara and this mascara is so easy to remove. This is definitely my HG Mascara.

  • Kate Gradical Eye Palettes and Kate  Glam Trick Eyes Palettes
BR-1  I use it almost everyday for casual day time look
BU-1 and GN-1 that i normally use for creating nighttime look

I use KATE  eye shadow palettes for few years and i always like KATE colors like I have talked about it here before.

There are many generations of them. Their 1st generation was Deep Eye Collection. But i prefer Kate Gradical Eye Collection  (available 8 shades) and Kate Glam Trick Eyes Collection (available 5 shades ) It creates a magnificent eye makeup!
