Yes, doggy walks…This may explain the blue moon we’re going to have on the 31st. Ok, fine, slay me now: Ive been a terrible fur mommy for the past few months. Since the arrival of Parker-Grace, Im a little ashamed to admit that there hasn’t Continue reading
So if you’ve checked out my post about my daughter’s Dora the explorer 3rd birthday party over here, you’d have noted the crazy colourful birthday cake, as well the Estrella (star shaped) cookies used as part of the Thank-you take-homes. Both of which, I thought, are SO Dora…colourful, vibrant and fun!
Fortunately they are also quite delicious – even if I say so myself. The fact that my cakes normally get polished off real fast at a party, leads me to believe that Continue reading
Why in the world would you need edible glue?! Ha! You’d be suprised. I wasnt too far along into my baking and fondant modelling journey before I was in need of this magical substance.
So when that time comes for you, here’s how to make it with just TWO ingredients Continue reading
Breastfeeding or know someone who is? Then read on!
Firstly, calm down, calm down, mommies…No, this is not a hot new cocktail to sip beside the pool. Well, you could, but its not of the same kinda fun variety that you may be thinking about. It’s a lovely (virgin) concoction consumed by breastfeeding moms. Or in my case, “glugged down”. Copiously, especially with our first baba.
“What is that?!” and “And does it work?“. These are the two main questions I used to hear ALOT, whenever breastfeeding and milk supply came up in conversation.(Because when you’re a mom, its a topic as common as the weather!) So, based on my personal experiences, I’d like to share my opinion with you all here today. Continue reading

If you’ve ever read some of my kiddy party planning or activity posts, like here and here, you’d have picked up that Im a real sucker for it. Sure each time, after aching backs, numb fingers and sleepless nights, I say, never again will I make things myself…”Next time, I’ll just hire someone to do this, and I’ll just rock up on the day to enjoy”…but then I don’t. ‘Cause, I have a stupid soft spot for arts and crafts (refer to previous “sucker” statement of earlier), and well, lets be honest, the wallet and I don’t always see eye to eye on what the party budget should be.
So with all of this in mind, its always so cool to me when I go to another kid’s party and find that the mom is just as big a sucker as me! This past Saturday, I went to just such a party. It was chock-a-block with all Continue reading
*Side-note: I was not paid nor asked to write this post, it was purely inspired by my sheer love of this photographic art, of the beauty of birth itself, and by the enquiring looks I got when I shared my experience with them. I hope more women will be inspired to do so as well.
So, if you’ve ever watched Parker-Grace’s birth story, you probably may have noticed the exquisite photography used to capture the day. It was clearly not daddy taking a few quick snaps before rushing back to mom, and definitely not the paed saying,”Smile!”. Nope. Those are photographs with a pro touch. And this was no accident, people. You see, because of the sheer beauty and gravity of the day when we first welcomed our first born, and only the handful of rather vanilla pix we had to show for it, coupled with my love for photography, we decided to call in the big guns for baby number two’s arrival, and had a professional birth photographer there. Yup, a photographer at the birth!
Mind you, it wasn’t a likely decision, especially for my hubby. We hemmed and hah’ed about it, just like any other couple I think would – allowing a complete stranger WITH a camera lense into your very personal and sacred birth space! I think deep down I had Continue reading
