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!

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!

As a full time working mother, I hardly have time for myself. Coupled with the fact that Aidan is sticky, and I'm a clingy mama, I hardly find time to blog, exercise or elaborate skincare routines. It’s really tough being a working mother. In addition to being a mother – which is tough enough as is! – I’m also working at the same time.

When I do things such as head out for a dinner with girlfriends or out for a yoga class, I'll feel extremely guilty leaving Aidan behind with my husband/mother-in-law/mother. It feels like I'm neglecting him to enjoy, you know?

Same goes with say blogging at home or taking time to do elaborate skincare routines. When Aidan sees me and if I'm not attending to him, he tends to cry badly. Especially now that he is teething. He is extremely cranky.

I'm not complaining, I enjoy every moment with him. Just that, I hardly have time for myself. But yet, I feel 'sad' that I no longer have time for myself. My skin, nails and hair has taken such a backseat as compared to last time. I never ever had my roots grow out back then nor have I ever not indulged in a good mask weekly. Working late nights and staying up late for baby has worsened my eye bags and dark eye circles. I also find that my frown lines have deepened – this must be because I’m under constant stress and worries most of the time.

Now? I touch up my hair like once in 3 months? (in comparison to every 3 weeks back then) and I have not seen a facial mask since I gave birth. I mean, how the heck can I ever find time to lie back and relax for a good twenty minutes? LOL. I also feel that my skin has looked a tad worse for wear these days. 🙁

I was glad to have been introduced to the Olay's latest launch, the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo. The duo consists of the Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essense and the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting cream.

What I like about these products is that it's easy and fast to use.

The Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence

IMG_1149

It's unique auto-dropper packaging ensures the exact and right amount of pre-essence is delivered in every single application. No mess at all!

The Pre-Essence is designed to boost the penetration of anti-aging actives of your moisturiser to increase skin cell metabolism and renewal for stunning, youthful skin that looks up to 10 years younger.

The first drop starts renewal of a million surface cells and helps visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pores and firms the skin.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

IMG_1157

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is Olay's most advanced and award-winning best selling Regenerist anti-aging cream.

IMG_4017

I read that it is the result of over 50 years of Olay research and formulated with the most concentrated Amino-Peptide Complex and Hydra-Firming Complex to lift, firm and micro-sculpt your look for younger looking skin.

IMG_1183

I used this after using the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence! Aside from renewing the skin's surface layer, it also helps reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps hydrates the skin to help plump and firm skin! Perfect for my dry skin!

IMG_4011

Can't wait to see how my skin will improve after prolong usage of the products!

The Olay products that I've shared is available in popular stores such as Guardian and Watsons stores, and also here on Lazada!

Thank you Nuffnang and Olay for sending these products to me!

By the way, I did a simple video for Olay recently. Do check it out here!

Remember the last time I had shadow roots where I had blonde hair with purple roots? After that, I went for one more round of bleaching and went purple!

Well, to be exact purple gray!

Super LOVE it! It soon faded to a lovely shade of greyish purple and I got lots of praises for it!

A lot of people noticed me as the purple hair girl in the various events I attended like the Tula and Jujube events! I loved it so much that I didn't even went to touch up! I had the faded colour for 3 months till Caely texted me and asked me to go back to touch up. HAHHAA

It's been a while since I last visited Shunji Matsuo 313 due to my pregnancy. I had darkened my colour in the late part of my pregnancy.

IMG_1047

After giving birth, I finally visited Caely after my confinement. I told her I was sick of dark colours  and wanted to bleach my hair after having dark coloured hair for the past 9 months.

Just because I'm pregnant, doesn't mean I will stop on my pampering beauty treatments! I did slow down on treatments as it's really tiring these days.

Taking note of that, I discussed with both my beauty sponsors on how to prolong my treatments. I also took note by using a face mask whenever I go for treatments as my sense of smell did get a tad sensitive during pregnancy.

For Milly's, my nails sponsor, they suggested a minimalistic simple gelish nail design that could last quite a while even with growout.

And they did! This design lasted me for more than a month and looked as good as new!
