I went to a supposed to be a dress shopping spree with Dennis and Jared. I feasted over neat and simple Elle dresses that I can wear at work – fun, classic tailoring plus strong solid colours that can turn a smart casual to a format in a flash.
I was confident as I took one dress after the other, I am a size 14 by now. And with my girdle, I might even fit to a 12. I literally took a dozen of those mid-length dresses, ranging from the summery peach to the bold black and red. Plus two straight-cut trousers to complete the ensemble. All those dresses were lovely. All those I tried to fit. All those I struggled to fit. All those… don’t fit me at all.
I was left with this black dress, perfectly fitting. My tummy is camouflaged. It was a size 14.
Perhaps in a few more months after I shed the pregnancy fats and I am back to a proper exercise routine, I can fit on those 14.
What’s getting inside my purse/handbag and replacing my long time Human Nature Citrus Burst hand sanitizer spray? The Victoria’s Secret Sanitizing Gel Pure Seduction scent.
Victoria’s Secret Sanitizing Hand Gel: Pure Seduction
Victoria’s Secret Hand Sanitizer. These tiny micro-beads bursting with anti-bacterial effect. Just put a pea-size on palm and rub briskly over hands. Leaves a sweet scent and my hands soft, unlike other over-the-counter hand sanitizers. The 125ml bottle is also just a right fit to stash in the bag, however I feel that the bottle can do a bit of revamp to match with the Victoria’s Secret fashionable packaging line. I do recommend a more ‘fashionable’ bottle with better seal-off cap instead of the regular-looking bottle at the moment.
Mildly sweet yet not intoxicating. Give a refreshing smell to the stinkiest of hands. I am by all means sold.
Weekend is drawing to a close in a few hours… Would just like to share this weekend-inspiring photo I randomly got online: Backyard turned into a cozy movie lounge… a nature-trip and equally romantic.
I will have this in a few years. And when that day comes, I hope the rain won’t spoil that much
I purchased a groupon voucher yesterday and so excitedly browsed mumzworld.com for new toys for Jared who’s turning 5 months in two weeks.
- Groupon voucher worth AED20 valued at AED100 at mumzworld.com
I had been eyeing on Lamaze toys for years (literally) and finally now’s the chance to grab these adorable yet educational and developmental Lamaze soft toys for Jared.
- Soft textured
- Easy to clean
Discovering shapes with Lamaze soft activity. The world is an interesting place for a baby or at least it should be. You can make sure of it by introducing the Lamaze soft activity puzzle into your baby’s playtime. This safe and non toxic durable soft touch activity puzzle will keep your little one entertained for long periods at a time. Aside from your security of knowing it’s safe for your baby you will be pleased to know it will play an important role in your baby’s developmental skills. – Lamaze
Shape soft sorter from Lamaze. You are going to be one proud parent, not that you are not already, when your little one masters the Lamaze soft sorter. No room for frustration here as you babe learns to match up the shapes with the corresponding holes in the soft plush box that acts as a storage for the pieces. It’s a great starter toy too for teaching your little one to put things away once they are finished playing with them. You just need to get the little one to put the pieces inside the box prior to putting it aside when playtime is finished. -Lamaze
Each toy costs AED99.00 plus a minimal delivery fee of AED23.00 less the Groupon voucher (bought at AED20.oo)… I just paid a whopping AED121.00 for these wonderful Lamaze toys instead of AED221.00! That’s a saving of AED80.00 that I can get nowhere. Thanks to mumzworld.com promotion at Groupon.ae.
Fastest Delivery Ever!
It’s my first time to place an order and I am so amazed how fast mumzworld.com delivered my goods
I placed my order at noon yesterday, and I received it this morning. I am so impressed and equally delighted.
More power to Mumzworld.com!
One happy mommy customer here and a happy baby Jared, too
Saw this invite from Palmer’s ME and triggered the desire in me to attend. I had been interested in the inner mind, holistic wellness to name a few and I am glad to find a local group in Dubai that’s just within my reach: http://thirdeyeonline.com/ae/
If the weather’s just right, Jared and Dennis are willing to go… I will not have second-thoughts
The Third Eye Opens its doors on 18-May, 11AM-5PM at Saeed Tower II.
Today is mother’s day. And I am happily celebrating the occasion within my heart in delight and gratitude.
Happy Mother’s Day to our Mommy Marina
Cheers to the best and strongest Mommy that we can ever wish for… She’s the epitome of a real mother who will endure and conquer all things for her family. We love you Mommy. God bless you more and more.
The ability to multitask is every mother’s God-given skill that is harnessed over time. I am one of those. But when multitasking comes with ‘three other multitasks’ plus that drowsy-feeling after a long day… that is for sure is one recipe of disaster. In my case, I totally forgot Jared’s feeding bottles that I was boiling (to clean). Now, you see what I mean.
Goodbye to his Medela and Tommy Tippee bottles. We had to buy bigger bottles, anyways (still trying to keep that positive composure there!)
Moral of the story (specially for Moms): Use your bottle sterilizers
