High on the essentials list when preparing your baby’s arrival is a pram! Secure, sturdy, comfortable…there are plenty of requirements for a good pram. What makes things challenging however, is the huge variety of products on the market. With so […]
Many new parents’ fear of taking their baby out to restaurants or cafes is about the “what if” scenarios…what if they don’t stop crying? Or scream at the top of their lungs at the couple beside us? Or have a […]
Ever since baby Charles was born, I’ve gotten into watching family vlogs/baby videos. Probably because I can now relate to the craziness (and amazingness) of parenthood! Admittedly, it’s really easy to get sucked into watching for ages because I end up going […]
I’ve been exclusively breastfeeding my baby for about 3 months now, and I’ve already realised which breastfeeding-related products have been totally worth buying. Admittedly, I was initially a little nervous about breastfeeding, because I’d heard and seen from others the […]
I’ve never liked coffee. Not the drink, not the flavour. Probably the closest I can get is a mocha, only if there’s lots of chocolate and barely any coffee taste. Yet coffee is the staple daily drink for so many […]
We survived the “fourth trimester”! It’s definitely been one of the best 3 months of my life. Having a new addition to the family is the greatest thing that could’ve ever happened to us, and we’re counting our blessings that […]

A soft whimper rises from the cradle nearby. Rustling sounds as blankets are kicked off. You peer through sleepy eyes at the clock. 12:17am Rolling out of bed in a half-woken daze, you shuffle over to get baby for a […]
Nursing pillows for breastfeeding are the greatest! In fact, the one I bought is probably my best breastfeeding-related purchase. If you’re breastfeeding your baby, you end up nursing a dozen times a day (or sometimes more!) during the early postpartum […]
It’s been over a year now since I moved out of my family’s home, once I got married. Although it feels like it’s been forever! Previously I lived out of home when I stayed at college for a year, but other […]

I’ve been on the hunt for healthy, delicious, easy to cook dinner options for during the week. Without a plan for weeknight dinners, it’s easy to fall into the easy options of just ordering takeaway, eating junk food, or relying on […]
Wow time has been shooting past super quickly! It feels like just the other week I published my “March 2017 – month in review” post, and now April has wrapped up already too. Taking a look back on what April 2017 brought […]
Since the move to the new house, there’s been lots of eating out for dinner because either the cooking utensils hadn’t been unpacked, we didn’t have enough space to buy and store many ingredients, or the day had been so busy that it was […]
