Ultra Hydra Facial Review – EHA Clinic Singapore

Ultra Hydra Facial Review EHA Clinic Singapore

Since becoming a mom, my focus has been on Baby Aadhav. While I try to take care of myself by eating a healthy diet and exercise,  those long nights have made my skin more pale and tired looking. Before my trip home to the U.S. for the holidays, I wanted to treat myself and give my skin some TLC. Since I have sensitive skin, I have to be extra careful about the treatments and products I use. When I heard about EHA Clinic’s Ultra Hydra Facial, I was excited to try the treatment and get back my new mom glow.  The Hydra facial is enhanced with the anti ageing and antioxidant power of  Idebenone. I’m excited to share my experience with you – read more below!

Classical Festive Afternoon Tea – Four Seasons Singapore

// Festive Weekend Afternoon Tea c/0 Four Seasons Hotel Singapore //

Happy Holidays from Singapore! I love the Festive Season and I’m excited to share my first holiday post. Since I moved to Singapore, one thing I’ve  learned is that Singaporeans love to celebrate! From Diwali to Chinese New Year, the diverse and inclusive country celebrates many cultures and religions. For the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays, Singapore is adorned with tinsel, ornaments, and garlands. Walking down Orchard Road, you feel like you are in a Winter Wonderland. For me, the holidays are not about gifts or presents – it’s about spending time with the people in your life that you want to give thanks for. Since moving to Singapore, my friend Sunita has been more than a friend, she has been a sister to me. A mom, luxury real estate professional, and wife –  Sunita has her hands full; yet, always makes time to check on me and the family. When I was getting ready to deliver Baby Aadhav, I booked my mom’s ticket to arrive on Aadhav”s due date. Little did we know that our little one would arrive a week early! After I delivered, I was missing my mom and sister so much. With tears in my eyes, I heard a knock on the hospital room door. In came Sunita full of love and hugs for Baby Aadhav. The surprise touched me so much and I felt the love of a sister all around me. When I heard about the Classical Festive Celebrations at the Four Seasons in Singapore, I knew I wanted to celebrate our friendship over a festive afternoon tea. As you know, I love high tea and was excited to try my first afternoon tea at the Four Seasons. The service, food, and drinks were ah-mazing! Sharing our Afternoon Tea experience below!

New Mom Pampering with Novu SG

// At-Home Mani Pedi c/co Novu Singapore //

After I had Baby Aadhav, I kept planning to get my nails done but could never find time. Three months later, my nails needed some major TLC. When I heard about Novu, I was excited to try my first home Mani Pedi beauty service. I’ve heard a lot about at-home beauty services but I always preferred going to the salon. Once I had a baby, I realized how convenient it was to have a beauty service done at home. Sitting on my balcony, getting pampered, and being able to take care of Aadhav was the most amazing experience (Moms understand how a little pampering goes a long way!). In the beginning, I was a little nervous that the quality would not be as good as a salon. Thankfully the experience was even better! There’s something about the comfort of your own home that makes the experience so relaxing.  For the holidays, I would love for you to try Novu too. Use code ‘SS10’ to receive 10% off your home Mani Ped service. Happy holidays and happy pampering! Read below for some exciting news!

#RealTalk – Post Pregnancy Fitness

Leggings & Sports Bra c/o Annee Matthew 

This post is probably one of the most real updates I have written in a while. Since giving birth, I cannot tell you how many people have commented on my appearance. The first few days after I came home from the hospital, the comments ranged from how tired I looked to the security guard in our building asking me when is the baby due. I politely told him the baby is already here – and he just stared at my stomach with a confused look. Honestly, I have stared at myself with that same look for weeks now! Baby Aadhav is almost 3 months old and I have started my postnatal fitness journey. This truly is a journey. While it may look on Instagram that I have “bounced back”, I can assure that is not the case. Honestly, I’ve been shocked at how difficult it is to get back to working out. There are so many challenges from finding time to actually workout to learning my stamina is about 10% of what it used to be. These past few months, my focus has been on making sure Baby Aadhav is healthy and happy. While that seems like a normal thing, breast feeding and pumping run my life. I’m still about 17 pounds over my normal weight. Almost none of my pre-baby clothes fit and with a baby, there isn’t a budget for a whole new wardrobe. While I am trying to eat healthy, I also have to be careful that I have enough calories to feed my growing boy. Now the new normal is to workout, even if it’s a quick 5 minute walk or 30 min YouTube video. I also try to eat healthy but eat a lot more calories since I am eating for two.  The main area I am trying to tone up is my abs. I have a lot of extra fat around there that I hope will go down by continuing to breastfeed, workout when I can, and eat a diet healthy for a nursing mom. I’ll be sharing more of my journey, workouts, and meal plans with you on the blog – stay tuned!

Note: Please consult your Doctor before beginning exercise post pregnancy. If you are pregnant – check out my prenatal fitness routine here

Social and Style Featured in The Business Times!

// Social and Style Featured in The Business Times! //

So excited to share my full-page feature in The Business Times! It’s such an amazing feeling to be recognized as one of Singapore’s top “mom” influencers. When the idea first came to me to start a blog, all sorts of negative thoughts followed. You are too old, not cool enough, and far from the picture perfect influencers I saw on social media. In the beginning, I was hesitant to share photos of myself and didn’t even tell anyone I had a blog for almost a month. Scrolling through my social media feeds, most of the influencers I saw were in their teens and 20s. I couldn’t really relate to them and wanted to see more women like me – in their 30s doing everyday things. I knew there was a gap and I wanted to help change that. Deciding to start blogging in my 30s was not easy. Taking photos, writing content, and sharing on social media takes a lot of time, effort, and dedication. There’s so much that goes on behind the scenes.  When The Business Times approached me to be a part of their feature , I was excited to share my experience! For me, blogging isn’t about the glitz and glam – it’s about sharing everyday stories that readers can relate to. It’s been such an amazing journey and I have you to thank! “My followers make me feel like they are on this ride with me, and I feel their excitement when I share these moments with them,” – Check out the rest of the article here!
