Ashley Low Photography should be no stranger to many of you. I worked with Ashley for my previous maternity shoot for #1 and various other sessions before in the last two years! Here's a recap:

Just like with Aidan, I wanted to capture photos of my beautiful bump when pregnant with Davina (aka #2) but I wanted something different as compared with Aidan!

Ashley and I discussed about a few different scenarios and concept and we decided to go for an outdoor photoshoot this time as we did an indoor shoot when I was pregnant with Aidan.

I showed some pictures from Pinterest as reference to Ashley and we both concluded that I preferred florals and a more girly look for this shoot. While Ashley offered a great variety of outfits to choose from, I wanted to search for different styles of clothings for the shoot. Showed them to Ashley and we shortlisted three outfits and decided on going to Botanical Gardens for our shoot!

I also mentioned to Ashley that while this was  a maternity shoot, I would prefer if we can skew it to more of a family shoot. I wanted both Aidan and Skai to be the main stars of the shoot too.

Here's the end results! I love the pics! Ashley really charmed Aidan too because he was so cooperative and so happy during the shoot.

A month or so back, our little family of three went for a Singapore staycation at Oasia Hotel Downtown. I think I'm pretty much out of touch with Singapore Staycations now, there's so many new hotels that popped up and the packages are amazing!

Skai and I used to go for romantic / couple staycations back in the past and now with our lil family of three (and expanding soon), we tend to opt for staycations with more facilities such as pools or family friendly places.

I first saw Oasia Hotel Downtown as it was located very close to Teppei, one of my favourite Japanese Omakase restaurants!

The hotel is located in the downtown Tanjong Pagar area which is conveniently located close to Tanjong Pagar MRT Station. Lots of eateries from restaurants, local delights in hawker centres and cafes are located very close by.

We checked in a Club Room which came with access to the Club Floor, Club Lounge and Infinity Pool on Level 21. Do take note that kids are not permitted to enter the Club Lounge. Luckily that day, Aidan was due to spend time with my in-laws for dinner, so we managed to steal away a few hours for a date night!

As some of you guys may know, I have a regular hairstylist Caely Tham. She has taken care of my hair for about 4 years now and I'm very comfortable with her. Especially so when she had to deal with my weird hair during pregnancy and postnatal hair loss.

FYI, mums go thru lots of hair changes during and after pregnancy. The texture and condition all changes. Caely has been wonderful throughout and has taken good care of my hair.

When she first told me that she was moving to Leekaja Beauty Salon, I was relieved to find out that it was located nearby. (I was so scared that she will move to ulu pandan or something! HHAHA)

Leekaja Beauty Salon is conveniently located at Mandarin Gallery, a stone's throw away from Caely's previous salon.

I was wowed when I first arrived at Leekaja. It was HUGE. Leekaja is much bigger than most salons that I have visited and they offer a wide range of beauty services thus the name Leekaja Beauty Salon. It is basically a Korean one-stop beauty solution salon.

Some of the services that they provide are hairstyling, nail, eyelash, makeup and barber services. But fret not, their prices are very competitive!

I felt very pampered when I arrived at Leekaja. I was offered a light snack and refreshment just incase I was peckish and thirsty.

I was quite shy to see Caely as it had been quite some time since I visited her. My hair was a mess and I hadn't taken care of my roots as regular as I should.

At that time I was also in the early stages of my pregnancy. I whispered to Caely and after all the congratulations and hugs, she whisked me away to a private area away from all the chemical smells.

We discussed options and decided to go for a healthier hair colour without touching my roots alongside the Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment to tame my very unruly hair.

Caely shared that the Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment helps to restore damaged hair to healthy hair by an amazing hair repair strength of up to 140%! The treatment has also a Nobel Prize Ingredient called Fullerene which is the world's strongest anti-oxidant to fight aging and humidity!

The Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment consists of a few steps to help increase the supply of keratin, to make the hair stronger and also increases the supply of CMC & Ceramide 2 to help regain silkyness and shine and lastly to help repair the hair cuticles.

I also brought home the Tokio IE Home Care products which helps to increase keratin protein buildup in my hair while protecting my cuticle from external stresses and improves muster and smoothness.

Even after bleaching my hair so often, my hair is strong and healthy! All thanks to the wonderful hands of Caely and using the Tokio Inkarami products!

This is the final outcome after my experience at Leekaja Beauty Salon. Caely refreshed my colour without touching my roots. She gave me a lovely dark colour coupled with some bits purple and pink.

[Product Review]

As parents, Skai and I can hardly travel "handsfree" anymore. We have to pack the whole house lots of items when we travel out with Aidan.

I love my diaper bags, I really do. But there are days where we just need to carry a simpler design of bags that looks well.. more adult like. LOL.

When the kind folks from Gaston Liga backpacks decided to hook Skai and I up with some sweet bags, we were excited! To be exact, Skai was EXTREMELY excited. He wasn't a huge fan of my big pink and girlish diaper bag and he would rather pick something more versatile.

Here's Skai's backpack of choice.

He chose the Classic Black Black backpack. He loves how simple and classy it was. And when we are not with Aidan, he also carries this bag for work/outings.

While the backpack may look small, it still packs a bunch. For a typical day out with Aidan, Skai packs a changepad, diapers, wet wipes, a bagful of Aidan's toys. The essentials.

For me, I prefer something preppy. So I can look younger. HAHAHAHA.

I chose the Praper in Navy and Brown. For me, I usually pack Aidan's food and drinks e.g. his porridge, water and snacks.

Skai also looks great with this design! Definitely an unisex design and colour!

If you like Gaston Luga's backpacks as much as I do, you'll be excited to find out that I will be offering a 15% discount when you use my promo code nadnut15!

Do take note that it was ALWAYS free shipping with 20% off as tax rebate (for orders from non-EU country) AND 15% off when you use my promo code.
