Each carefully-selected shade has a rich, cool undertone to mimic real shadow and light reflection for the most natural look. Personally I really love the the shade lit and fire and have also used stunner as an eyeshadow for a peachy summer glow!

Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask Review

I come from a long line of sun spot avoiders. In my 20s, I never had a skincare routine that I followed religiously. It wasn’t until I hit my 30s that I really used sunscreen (by the way you definitely should – just like eye […]

MOTHERHOOD | 10 THINGS I’VE LEARNT SINCE BEING A MOM

MOTHERHOOD | 10 THINGS I’VE LEARNT SINCE BEING A MOM

10 Things I’ve Learnt Since Being A Mom hellonance motherhood

A friend asked me the other day what I’ve learnt since becoming a mom and it got me thinking… What have I learnt the past ten months since baby arrived? So many thoughts rushed through my mind in that split second. Replaying like a carousel: the delivery room, her slimy body when we first touched, her first cry, her first smile… our first 30 days! One thing is for certain, this little human has changed our lives forever. I almost can’t remember how life B.C. (Before Child) was. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

To be honest it’s hard to narrow it down to just 10 Things I’ve Learnt Since Being A Mom, every moment is such an adventure; such a challenge; such a reward!

 

 

  1. How much love you can feel for this tiny human. The unconditional love for a child is unexplainable. I would bend over backwards for this girl. Things I would have never done before, I would do for this child.  I am so in awe of the miracle of life and the creator of it that it makes me realize how much more my Heavenly Father must love me when he knitted me together.
  2. Babies are expensive. Even before they are born we’ve spent so much money on preparing her nursery. Making sure she has all the essentials that she needs.
  3. How ridiculous you will act just to make your child smile/laugh.
  4. Parenting is not something you can prepare yourself for. Not one baby is the same and no amount of books / YouTube can prepare you.
  5. How tired and sleep deprived one can be. Even if your child is a good sleeper, you’ll be sleeping with one ear open.
  6. A baby’s smile cures all. A baby’s smile will make you forget all the negative things and how tired you are (or at least it makes you realize that it is all worth it).
  7. You and your spouse will fight. Especially during the first 3 months. Not one, but both of your are sleep deprived and adjusting to life with Baby.
  8. Suddenly the world is a lot scarier. I worry about how I can protect and shield my daughter from all the harmful and awful things in this world.
  9. It makes you fall in love with your spouse all over again. Watching my husband take care and play with Emily makes me fall in love with him all over again… and then more.
  10. Having kids is one thing. Being a parent is another. We want to nurture our daughter to be a strong independent woman that is God loving with morally high ethics yet has the empathy and compassion to care for another.

 

 

And of course…

 

 

They grow up much too fast!! I miss how tiny she was when she was born. The nights are long but the days are fast. Much. Too. Fast. Cherish every second.

My Diary

Post ID:

I recently across this super cute cactus print backpack in millennial pink! The stylish On-the-Go Backpack from TWELVElittle is perfect for toting around your essentials when out and about. The interior has the right amount of pockets for organization, and is spacious enough for mommy and baby items. If you are unfamilar, TWELVElittle,  a New York City-based diaper bag company, known for their collection of sleek and multifunctional diaper bags, backpacks, totes, fanny packs as well as kids’ backpacks and lunchboxes.

 

As you can imagine, I was super excited when TWELVElittle sent Emily one in the mail. I think I was more stoked then she was. But at 9 months old, I can see that she was super curious about all the shiny rings and closures.

 

Product Features:

  • Water-resistant materials with vegan leather trim.
  • Multiple exterior and interior pockets for organization.
  • Fully padded laptop sleeve with separate opening.
  • Padded and adjustable shoulder straps.
  • Insulated side bottle pockets.
  • Travel friendly back sleeve to fit through luggage handles.
  • Free of harsh chemicals such as BPA and PVC.
  • 12”(L) x 17”(H) x 6.75”(D)

 

 

 

As a mom who is always on-the-go, this backpack is the perfect diaper bag! The bags are made from high-quality water-resistant fabrics and genuine leather and are thoroughly designed with individual style. It is functional and doesn’t scream “DIAPERS”! It is so cute that I think she will use it when she starts going to school!

 

This cactus print backpack includes a machine-washable changing pad, oversized pockets for spacious organization and multiple hidden pockets with secure closures, and are engineered with maximum durability for everyday practicality. All items in the line offer a high quality, high style guarantee, which promises thoughtful interior and exterior function that are PVC and BPA chemical-free materials! I am so happy that Baby is not breathing in toxic fumes!

 

Also, the cactus print comes in a Stroller Caddy (which I think can double up as a camera bag), Mini-Go Backpacks, and 12little Diaper ClutchAnd of course, there are plenty of Unisex and monotone designs for Dads or if you think a pink cactus print is too girlie for you!

 

 

 

Behind the TWELVElittle Story

The story goes: An ancient emperor invited all the animals to a legendary race across the river. The first 12 animals to complete the race would have a permanent place in the calendar as a prize. Every animal represents one year of the 12-year cycle based on the Chinese zodiac. The year the person is born determines their animal sign.
