As some of you guys may know, I have had my hair taken care of by Caely Tham for years now.

I've been bleaching my hair for years now and for the past year been curling my hair almost every other day. As a result, my hair is a bit messy and dry.

I tried Leekaja's Cinderella Treatment last year and I was excited to hear about Caely's latest package - the Nautical Hair Revival. This treatment is exclusive to Caely.

What is the Nautical Hair Revival?

Basically the treatment is a specially customised 3 parter consisting of Volume Rebonding, 7-Step Hair Treatment and Leekaja's Signature Cinderella Treatment. The treatment is customised according to everyone's hair condition and can be mixed and matched depending on the hair condition and effect needed to be achieved.

I spoke to Caely and after assessing my hair condition and needs, she recommended a 100% natural treatment consisting of plant extracts only. She concocted of a treatment consisting of the 7-Step Hair Treatment and Cinderella Treatment which is pumped with high-nutrient deep sea moss and organic ingredients like aloe vera, vitamins and collagens to achieve a smooth, shiny, anti-frizzy and moisturised result.

While talking to Caely, we thought of a cute analogy. Think of the Nautical Hair Revival like cosmetics. It's a non permanent solution that isn't damaging while chemical treatments like rebonding is like plastic surgery which is permanent.

This treatment is unlike other Keratin treatments at other places as it's using plant extracts and is very gentle to the hair. It helps smoothens hair cuticles from the outside and it's easy to achieve easy to manage hair. Unlike typical Keratin treatments, you can still curl and style your hair. Here are pics of my before and after.

Look at the huge difference! If you'll like a hair treatment that lasts for months and have fuss free hair, I'll highly recommend the Nautical Hair Revival treatment.

After giving birth to 2 kids via C-section and putting on a considerable amount of weight, my tummy has gone thru a lot.

I have a very unsightly double bulge and was looking for solutions to help my mum tum. I wasn't open to surgery for now and needed a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that would not affect my breastfeeding. I read a few reviews from fellow mummy bloggers about CoolSculpting and was super intrigued about it.

I made an appointment with Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics located at Orchard Gateway to find out more about the treatment and here's what I learnt.

About CoolSculpting

1. Consult with Dr. Terence

I met up with Dr. Terence Tan and he shared that CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime fat reduction treatment. It is the only USA FDA-approved fat freezing treatment that uses the concept of cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, which are then disposed from the body naturally.

2. Consult_CoolSculpting diagram

He also shared that the treatment removes 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area each time. The science behind it is our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age. The fat cells that die during the fat freezing process will be gone forever which is why CoolSculpting is ideal to be used to remove unwanted fat which can't be removed through spot toning exercises.

Some areas that can be treated are the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana roll (butt cheeks), knees, cheeks and even the double chin!

Some of you guys may notice this... Skai has always suffered from acne scars. Even when I first met him about 11 years ago, he had very bad acne and scars back then.

He shared that he has suffered from acne and scarring since his schooling days. He has tried plenty of products but most of them do not work. From medication to pimple creams, he felt that nothing really helped.

I first found out suitable treatments for Skai's acne scars courtesy of William from MyFatPocket. He shared that he had suffered from acne scars back then and recommended the treatments he had undergone.

We were recommended to Dr Justin Boey from Sozo Aesthetics for a consultation.

The clinic

SozoAesthetics-34

Sozo Aesthetics is conveniently located at One Raffles Place Singapore. Staff were very friendly and professional.

SozoAesthetics-22

SozoAesthetics-27

I had tagged along with Skai for his appointment and had brought Davina however she started fussing during the consultation and one of the nurses helped to coax her. Super grateful to them! <3

The consultation

SozoAesthetics-2

Dr Justin was very friendly. He was also very frank and shared that Skai's condition was quite serious. His scarring was quite deep and one session would not be suitable. A few different treatments was recommended to Skai and it would take plenty of sessions to see results especially for his condition.

SozoAesthetics-5

Skai and I was very comfortable with Dr Justin and we agreed to proceed.

The suggested treatments

Dr Justin assessed Skai's condition and recommended these treatments to us:

SozoAesthetics-71

    • Fractional CO2 Laser - This treatment produces thousands of tiny microthermal zones in the treated areas where the laser targets the scarred areas and old collagen, but also leaves areas of healthy tissue to regenerate through collagen production.

SozoAesthetics-58

    • Subcision Filler - Subcision was done with Rejuran S Filler. Subcision specifically treats depressed scars by releasing fibrotic tissues that are responsible for pulling down the skin and creates the indentation. A tiny, hypodermic needle is inserted into the skin which will then be moved back and forth in a fanning pattern while the sharp edges of the needle cut the fibrotic scar tissues. The needle is removed circumferentially around the exit to evacuate any excess blood and to minimise haematoma formation in the area. The scar will continue to heal and stimulate more collagen production.

Day2-15

Day3-14

  • INFINI Laser Solution - This treatment is used to deliver RF energy, which in turn helps volumize scar tissue. It combines the thermal power of radiofrequency with microneedling.

The combination of these treatments were recommended to help improve Skai's scars. We recommended to try this for 3 sessions first. Each session will happen once monthly. But of course, 3 sessions is not enough to completely heal Skai's skin. This is for us to assess if we are comfortable with the treatments and for us to consider more sessions in future.

The experience

We have gone thru the 3 sessions so far. Honestly, we are very comfy with the clinic and Dr Justin. For every session, Skai would have his skin cleansed and numbing cream will be applied before treatment commences.

Painwise, Skai said he doesn't feel anything at all. Numbing cream rocks! The only after effects were that his face looked a bit sunburnt the next few days but it faded quickly.

Our thoughts

I do see some slight improvement. His scars do not look as deep as previously. However, I do agree with Dr Justin that Skai has many more sessions to go if he would like to have smooth skin. After all, it took years for these scars to form, it won't be possible to improve miraculously. Thank you Dr Justin and Sozo Aesthetics for the experience!

Hopefully Skai can achieve baby smooth skin like Davina's in due time!

As some of you guys may realise, I had put on more weight during my pregnancy with Davina as compared with Aidan.

Heck, I didn't even lose all of my pregnancy weight with Aidan back then. With Davina, I gained about 15kg. This time, I worked harder to lose the weight as compared to the first pregnancy. I did a 2 months confinement, ate healthier food, cut down my portions and did very light exercises. Surprisingly i lost all of my pregnancy weight! However, I couldn't shed any more weight. I've reached a plateau. Basically a standstill.

I up-ed my efforts but I couldn't lose any more weight. At that time, Aimin Acupuncture contacted me and asked if I would be keen to try out TCM slimming. Visited them and they shared more about their their acupuncture and weight loss treatments.

They shared the difference between Aimin's TCM methods as compared to pill popping. TCM is a healthy and more sustainable way of losing weight. Weight loss is actually a benefit of acupuncture as the main aim is to improve overall health and digestive issues.

After what they shared, I decided to try out Aimin despite my insane fear of needles. As I'm still breastfeeding (and I intend to continue for as long as I can), i needed to find a more sustainable and healthy weight loss way.

Chloe from Aimin worked out a package for me where I would undergo Weightloss Acupuncture   twice a week, Slimming Cupping once a week alongside a Meridian Slimming Massage once a week. I also had the opportunity to sample out their RF treatments.

Yes, I won't deny it. I can feel the needles when they insert, however after that, it's really fine. But that being said, I am one of the more sensitive ones who fear needles. Even when I had my fillers done back then, I could also feel the pain. Cupping to me isn't painful at all however I have heard that other people find it extremely painful. Guess, it's really up to individual!

Here's a video interview of my experience!

How long has Aimin been around?

Aimin has over 24 years of experience! Their acupuncture weight-loss treatment has helped over 2,300 customers lose weight & maintain the weight loss effectively!

How is the process like?

For the acupuncture session, needles will be inserted at various acupoints on the tummy and legs. A heat lamp will be placed on the tummy and the needles will be left for 40 minutes.

For slimming cupping, cups using heat will be placed on front & back of body for about 10 minutes.

What does it do?

It improves my digestive system, also helps suppresses my appetite a bit. I have also been recommended a simple meal plan on things to avoid eating and items great to eat. Honestly, I'm not so guai with my diet. Breastfeeding mamas are ALWAYS hungry HAHHAA. It's a slower method of weightloss but we are looking at a more sustainable and long term approach.

How do I feel?

Great! I used to suffer from constipation problems. With Aimin, I go everyday. HAHAHA. My milk supply did dip a bit due to me eating lesser but it's okay now! I do feel healthier, lighter and less tired these days.

How much weight have i lost?

Considering the fact that I'm still eating rubbish (SORRY AIMIN!), I think my results are amazing. I have lost over 7kg. I'm now at my pre-pregnancy weight before Aidan! Woohoo! Back to 2015 weight!

Are you satisfied with your results?

Am i satisfied? Of course! Just look at the results for yourself. Same dress from Jump Eat Cry. One taken before any treatments at Aimin and the other after.
