Mommy: Julia, do you want to go with me to a party?
Julia: Why do you even ask me that? You know I love parties!
FYI, Julia is all of 5 years old but she already knows a simple fact of life: Parties are fun and we should have more of them!
It really doesn't take much to throw a party. Simply round up a group of your favorite people, provide a venue where everyone can relax and catch up with each other's lives and keep their tummies full. But how do you amp up the fun level even more? Two words: Open bar.
With about a month to go before my scheduled due date, I have nothing but baby related things on my mind. That doesn't mean that we're prepared for Bean's coming though, but really, can you ever be fully prepared to welcome a baby into your life?
In any case, I've been trying to avoid stress by focusing on the things that I can control to some degree, like avoiding stretch marks.
I was a very skinny kid who turned out to be a very skinny teenager, thus, I was really surprised when I developed white stripes on my bum seemingly overnight with no weight gain to show for it. As it turned out, stretch marks are primarily genetic and as I looked at my brothers' stretch mark marred arms and my sister's stripey outer thighs, I could only nod my head in agreement.

I've had this Lip Gloss and Lipstick Duo for quite a while now but only got around to reviewing it (sorry Shenny!).
BYS or Be Yourself, is an Australian drugstore brand that made its presence known in our sunny shores a few months ago. I spied a well-stocked BYS stall at Watsons MOA and was very impressed with the friendly price points. No need to skip lunch for a week to stock up on BYS goodies.
I pretty much DIY-ed our wedding three years ago. I sourced my suppliers based on budget and proximity, in that order, and I generally loved every minute of it. Of course, I was also out of work that time, having walked out of an extremely toxic working environment so I had all the time in the world to plan and prepare for our wedding.
But what if you didn't have the same luxury of time that I did back then? Or what if you simply couldn't be bothered to go through all the nitty gritty required in mounting a wedding? Cue Wedding Connections.
This box was waiting for me when I dropped by my parents' house last weekend.
