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!

Style File 1.3

Life in my third trimester has been full of changes! For the first time since February, I am feeling a lot more tired. By 9 pm each night, I am exhausted. Also – my hands and feet are constantly swollen, which make everyday tasks a lot more tough. Through the changes in my body, I am learning I need to slow down. Working in a startup is demanding and I’m trying to balance my blogging commitments as well. Over the last month, you may have noticed some issues with the format on the blog. About a month ago, there was a tiny formatting glitch which snowballed into my site completely going down! Since then, I’ve continued to have more issues, where I have to call my hosting provider during US business hours. As a result, I’ve spent many nights on the phone till midnight trying to get things sorted out. So far the site is back to normal, but I may have issues with updates I’ve been wanting to make. Thank you for your patience as I try to get the site back to normal. Also – I really appreciate your suggestions on article topics! Insta stories has been a great way to connect with you and hear what you are interested in. Keep the ideas coming. I am starting to work on posts in advance for when the baby comes and love hearing your ideas.

If you follow me on Instagram and Instastories, you may have noticed a few changes in my life lately that have a lot to do with fashion! At the start of my third trimester, I joined Covetella – Singapore’s #1 Fashion Rental Destination. As you know, I typically don’t talk much about my professional life on the blog, but so many of you have been asking about my new job! So I thought I would share a little more about my new role and how it all happened!

A Better Florist – Every reason is the perfect reason for flowers.

Every reason is the perfect reason for flowers. Flowers hold a special place in my heart. My mom loves flowers and spends hours in her garden tending to her beautiful blooms. My Grandfather, who worked in Ludhiana’s Agricultural University, grew up tending to our family’s farm and flower fields. My Grandpa instilled the importance of agriculture to his three daughters by teaching them about botany, flower arrangement, and gardening. My mom always feels close to her father when she is around flowers. Now that I am away from home, I too feel my mother’s presence around flowers. For me, fresh flowers light up a room and make our home feel cozy, especially when I miss my family and friends back in the US. When I moved to Singapore, I searched for places to buy flowers both affordably and easily. Thankfully, I found A Better Florist!

Hi…I’m Back!

I want to start this post by saying I’m back and I missed you! Sometimes, you need to take a break from blogging and focus on what matters most in your life. More on that in upcoming posts… While I never expected the break to be this long, I am thankful that I took time to reflect, mature, and be thankful for what I have in life. As you may remember from previous posts, the move to Singapore went smoothly and I am proud of myself for adapting to my new home so quickly. Soon after the New Year, I went back to the US to meet my new baby niece. It was then that I realized I needed to pause and be more present in my life. Blogging had started to become a main priority rather than a creative outlet that I loved. Thank you for all your messages and patience during this time.  So many of you wrote to me checking to see if I was ok and that meant so much. Now that I feel rested, I am full of ideas to write about! While I was away, I learned I loved fuss-free healthy cooking, read a ton of books (I can’t wait to share with you), and most important – I want to get back to writing about topics that inspire readers. Relaunching the #PowerWomen series is something I am excited about, along with lots of travel posts (next up our trip to Bali)!
