You've probably read and seen my previous posts with Ashley Low Photography. After a great experience with them, they were my top choice when I was looking to do another photoshoot.

Needless to say, I wanted to celebrate the special moment of Aidan turning 1! I love the whole concept of a Cake Smash Photoshoot thus I really wanted to do one!
I discussed this with Ashley on the concept and she suggested a blue theme! Which was perfect cos that was one of our favourite colours! Well, mine.

I also requested for something simpler like buntings or poms and Ashley totally nailed it with the background prepared! She also prepared the cutest cake ever!

Unfortunately the star of the show was feeling a bit cranky that day and refused to touch the cake. Really gotta love how patient the photographer was and Aidan soon warmed up!

As some of you guys may know, I love photoshoots! I really do. Especially now that Aidan is growing up fast, I am totally obsessed with documenting his growth (which is pretty evident from my numerous Instagram posts and milestones posts on my blog)

Previously I did a Maternity and Newborn shoot with Ashley Low Photography and LOVED the experience. Needless to say, it was pretty much a no-brainer for me to go back to her!

I scheduled my Tummy to Tippy Toes shoot with Ashley Low Photography when Aidan was close to 11 months old. This was the time that he was crawling a lot and starting to stand (with support). He was also displaying lots of cheeky grins from time to time and I really wanted to capture that moment.

I discussed with Ashley on a few different concepts and I pretty much left it to her to suggest some themes to play with!

Our first theme was the Ah Boys to Men theme. Which was perfect for us, because Skai is a Regular Medium. hhahahah.

I love how Ashley makes Aidan laugh. She has toys and many gimmicks to coax funny expressions from him!

Although I'm a mother now, doesn't mean I'm not hiao. LOL.

How has your preparation been? I'm all prepared on the hiao front like clothes, hair, nails but my house is still not clean!

Panicking a bit actually. Last few days to tidy up the mess!

On the hiao-front, I've gotten my hair and nails done! A few weeks ago, I visited Caely, my stylist from Shunji Matsuo 313. I super buay tahan my outgrown roots and wanted to touch up my hair. She bleached my roots and gave me a darker colour so that my whole hair colour would be even-ed out rather than be patchy. It will lighten in time and then it's time to play with colour again. WOOHOO!

Here's the end result!

She had also customised a Shu Uemura Master Ceremony Treatment to help strengthen my hair and also reduce dryness from bleaching.

If you look at my hair now, you will never guess that it has been bleached plenty of times within 6 months and coloured over and over again. Healthy hair yo!

Feel free to show Caely any of my pics if you are looking to get this colour too! And as usual, when you quote my name Nadia or nick nadnut, you'll enjoy 10% off chemical services!

Also, do check out my Shunji Matsuo 313 hair journey here:

I then visited Milly's at the Suntec City branch to get my nails pampered. Went through a classic manicure and pedicure where my cuticles were trimmed and had some lovely nail art! This time, I opted for gelish with a bright and cutesy design of chicks, eggs and hearts!

Carrie had loaned me a Circles.Life plan for the past 3 months and I've been testing it out. Here are some thoughts on my experience.

Untitled

1. Network.

Circles.Life uses the M1 network (which I'm a current user). As such, I didn't face any difference from my current telco and Circles.Life. As what I shared previously with my fellow Punggolians, I don't face any downtime and my coverage is fine. It's 3-4 bars out of 5, same as what I face with M1.

2. Flexibility.

I like the fact that I can customise my plans. Add more data, reduce minutes and sms-es anytime. I can choose to "upgrade" or "downgrade" anytime and not be fixed to a specific "plan". If this month, I need more data, all I have to do is just pay for additional data. Easy peasy!

3. Pay for what you use.

Most mobile plans comes with a set number of minutes and sms-es. I hardly use them. Like I use LINE or Whatsapp most of the time. With Circles.Life, you'll need not be bogged down with "set meals" anymore.

4. No contracts.

No commitments. Forget about being stuck in a clingy relationship. The good thing about Circles.Life is you can say bye anytime.

5. They'll deliver it to you.

After applying online, they'll courier the sim card to you. Which is awesome. Just take note not to miss the courier as you'll be billed for a re-delivery fee.

This is just my experience with Circles.Life so far. I'm not paid in anyway to write and I'm honestly just reviewing this for a good friend. If you sign up, use this referral code "20FREE" and get $20 off your Circles.Life registration fee. Enjoy!

As mentioned in my previous blog entry about my second honeymoon in Maldives, I promised to share the difference between All Inclusive, Full Board and Half Board packages in Maldives.

When we were researching about where to stay in Maldives, we were shocked at the many different types of packages available.

Thankfully, as we were no strangers to the Club Med concept (having visited Club Med Bintan and Club Med Phuket), we were able to wrap our heads around the various packages available.

Here's #nadskai's interpretation of the very many Maldives packages available!
