Happy anniversary! 3 years ago, we had an intimate ROM ceremony at the Singapore Flyer and became officially Mr and Mrs Sim (although we considered only being "married" after the Chinese wedding banquet on 1.3.14 heh)
It's been an interesting year with #nadskaihome renovations. I penned a Monday's Musings entry on Reasons Why I Love Him last anniversary, this entry still holds true! Can't wait for our developments next year, moving into our very own home!
Happy Wedding Anniversary My Love! And for the rest of you guys, Happy Deepavali LOL!

This is a Monday's Musings - Random thoughts, feelings and musings by Yours Truly entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.
I think most of my Monday's Musings entries comes from real life experiences. When irked, amused, I think it makes good content for Monday's boliaoness posts. These are all true experiences where I faced during dating then engagement till marriage life.
Today is Skai (aka chubby aka chingchongboy) and my wedding anniversary. We're actually in Cebu now but I scheduled this entry.
Happy anniversary baby!
Friends have asked me, why did I choose to get married, whether if I knew if he was the right one and why did I love him.
In my Monday's Musings style, I decided to list down the reasons why I love him! (after all, for my gatecrash, the girls asked him to list down reasons why he loves me!)
1. He is extremely loving and sweet to me. Despite being together for more than 5.5 years, we are still extremely lovey dovey to each other. I feel happy and pampered with his gestures (not necessarily romantic all the time!), his sweet words and his love for me. I know that he loves me and I can feel it.
2. He is extremely supportive of whatever I do. Blogging is a huge part of my life and i'm glad he is willing to be a part of it.
Blogger events, he'll accompany me if I asked him to. He'll take pictures when I need him to. He has never complained over me dragging him for the numerous events nor the hours I spend on blogging. In fact, he sometimes suggests content for me and even share my posts for me. (I never asked him to do so!)
3. He indulges me. He knows that I have an unhealthy obsession with traveling and Singapore Staycations and yet he supports me if I choose to travel. E.g. Beijing, he accompanied me for my blogging trip to Beijing because I really did not feel comfortable going alone. Though he has suggested we cut down on our holidays and staycations once our BTO is here, he has also agreed that it is not unreasonable to set aside moolah for 2 good trips and 2 staycations a year. 😀
4. He makes me laugh. All the time. Sometimes he does the silliest things randomly. I feel happy with him and definitely more carefree.
5. He makes me feel strong. He makes me feel that I can do anything with his support. He gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. It's really nice finding that one life partner of your dreams and knowing he loves me as much as I love him. He makes me want to be a better person.
Happy Wedding Anniversary My Love!

Well, this is my Monday's Musings entry. Sorry for the long wall of text! I hope that you've enjoyed reading this Reasons Why I Love Him musing piece from me! Are there any other topics that you'll like to hear from me? Do comment and I'll muse about that
This is a Tips on Tuesdays - nadnut pretends to act knowledgable and impart some tips. entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.
This is an extremely throwback post. But I decided that since I had all of these pictures, it would be such a waste to not use them!
Background info: These pictures were from my wedding makeup and hair trial before my wedding dinner on 1st March 2014 i.e. #nadskai1314! I've worked with my Makeup Artist Cindy from Colorpots Makeup a couple of times before.
Before your makeup trial, you should discuss with your Makeup Artist aka MUA on your expectations.
Do you have a certain makeup look that you like? I shared with Cindy that I wanted a lighter look for the morning gatecrash and a much heavier look for the dinner.
What are the must-dos and must not-dos for your hair? I don't know if you guys noticed but I hate having my fringe up. Reason being, I do not have a nice hairline and I feel that I have a high forehead. It doesn't look flattering for me with my fringe up. So hell no to fringe being pinned up.
I also wanted two different looks for the morning and evening. I wanted my hair up aka shunu look with the lighter look and my hair down for the evening.
Discuss discuss discuss. I also showed Cindy my gowns and some pictures of makeup looks and hairdos I liked and she shared her opinions on them.
I decided to have my wedding makeup and hair trial the same day as my bridal gowns fitting. Reason being, I wanted to see how the makeup and hair will look with my gowns.
We didn't do the evening makeup trial as Cindy had experimented on darker looks for my ROM previously before and I liked it. Pass! No need sit exam again!
So on the day itself, Cindy did my makeup first before trying out the various hairdos.
Curled hair with morning makeup. My feedback: I felt that the light brown eyeshadow was a bit normal for me (though flattering) as I use that colour normally in my daily makeup. Cindy and I discussed and we agreed on trying pink for my morning look on the day itself. And it worked! We also agreed to only apply falsies on the upper eye for the morning.
She braided my hair and did an undo for me while tucking in the hair. My feedback: I loved the look as it made my hair looks quite voluminous and it wasn't the conventional bun. I also decided that the lip colour was too barbie doll pink for me and we agreed to try a less baby pink gloss.
For the evening look, we discussed on hairstyles that were easy to modify. Most couples do not have much time for their second outfit change and we thought it would be wiser to play it safe.
Cindy braided bits of my hair and tried two variations. One with it loose and the other tied to the side. My feedback: We thought of my outfit and I decided that it being loose suited my off shoulder dress more while having it at the side suited the toga second march in dress. Loved this hairdo and approved it immediately!
For the second march in, we went for something simpler.
Cindy twisted my hair into a few loops and tied it at the side for my second march in hairdo. My feedback: I requested for more hairspray as I felt that my fine hair could get a bit frizzy and messy at the end.
We also discussed on hair colours for the wedding, what would suit my skin tone and what wouldn't. Whether I should trim my hair or fringe. She suggested that I had my hair layered for the wedding.
I think it looked good during my fitting!
At the end of the day, my makeup lasted! No smudges at all!
I super love working with Cindy! She also reminded me on some tips she had imparted to me for my ROM back then.
-Do not wash your hair the day of your trial / actual makeup day.
-Do not put on any leave in serum the night before
-Bring your skincare regime but do not put in on. The MUA will help you with it. Sometimes the moisturiser might counter effect her ampoules
-Have enough sleep!
