Preparing for Maternity

MATERNITY. One thing that I should have paid more attention to before taking maternity pictures is the dress. It was quite hard pregnancy for me, since I lost my appetite and kept throwing up all the way up to almost 7 months. It made me lazy to do anything and chose to sleep rather than doing any activities; or else... I would throw up.

For this photo shoot, I kinda wore something that could fit me from my old wardrobe. I mean I searched from my closet and this is the only dress that I could fit in. Thanks to the stretchy fabric. However, it couldn't really zip all the way up to my breast area. Yep, we had to pin it. It was that bad! Ha-ha!


So, I would recommend you to think about the dress before you do a maternity photo shoot. Custom made dress is a great idea! You can look great in a dress that comfortable and actually fit your body perfectly! Yesmybride can help you with that. I absolutely love how they offer to design your own dress. They are the combination of professional team, top fabric, and unlimited design. You can even get a free sketch from their designer. Great, right? :)

What if?

WHAT IF. There are a lot of 'what if' in our life. What if I do this? What if I do that? I just want to put another perspective in bridesmaid dress. I know I finally chose short dresses for my bridesmaids. But... what if I chose long dresses for them. What difference would it make?

First of all, I think it would look more elegant. The short ones that I chose were more casual than ever. But, it was suitable for my wedding  in which I asked them to prank my hubby and his gang. The short dresses wouldn't bother them at that special event.

Secondly, it would look more mature. It gives the vibe that you and your bridesmaids are grown women - ready to move to the next level in life, if you know what I mean. While the short ones will give you a young and freshness feeling, also simplicity.

All in all, it depends on your wedding theme and what you want. These are just a thought from me, but hopefully it will help you deciding which one you want for your bridesmaids dresses. Long or short, they will look just as beautiful.

Anyway, Bridesmaid Designers has lovely long bridesmaid dresses. Here are some of my wishlist :




So, tell me, which one you choose? Long or short bridesmaid dresses? :D

Floral Dress

FLORAL. I'm back with an outfit post. These pictures were taken before I went to my friends' kid birthday party. Simple outfit is the perfect choice, after all... the main spot would be my daughter. By the way, she was so happy attending her friend's birthday party. All those balloons and bright decorations made her so excited. She was laughing all the time and didn't want to sleep at all. I'm so excited planning her birthday party as well.

My Little Japanese Girl

JAPANESE GIRL. If you follow my instagram, I'm sure that you would know how much I love dressing up my little Freya. In my eyes, she just looks good with everything she wears. I might be biased because she is my daughter, but hey! That's what Mom usually does, right? >.<




For her age, her hair is considered super thin. It's cute on her on way, but when I tried hair replacement systems on her - in other words, baby wig (It's actually my wig, but amazingly I can set it smaller and suitable for little Freya),  I can't help but coo on her. She is so.... cute and looks just like a little Japanese girl. Although it makes her look older than her real age which is eight months old, but I think it's kinda refreshing. Don't you think so? :)

Here are how she looks like from all of the angles, the hair looks just like real hair! Amazing, right? This kind of hair wig is available to purchase at HairBro. Long, short, wavy, straight, blonde, black - you name it and they have it all!



Anyway, she's also wearing her favorite fox socks from thelittlewears and Osh Kosh Jumpsuit.



A penny for your thought? ^^

Be Your Own Princess

May 6, 2015



PRINCESS. Lately, Cinderella becomes popular once again. We are once again being reminded about this all time classic Disney story by the new remake movie. The story has a simple story line, but whether we are young or old - we all love it so much. When I grew up, I always wanted to be a Cinderella - where a dashing and handsome stranger swept me away, giving me true love. Those kind of magical things, well, even though I don't have cruel stepmother and stepsisters. It was just a part of little girl's imagination.

When we grew older, we started to get realistic. Prince charming isn't always there to find us, right? What about when we don't have him? Does it mean we don't have a happy life or happy ever after? For some, maybe yes. But, why don't we think the other way around?

Stripped off the prince charming part, what will you do to become a Cinderella? One main point from Cinderella is even though she's literally a slave, but in just one night when she went all out - wearing the right make-up, amazing dress, and those famous glass shoes; she got the prince charming.

Why don't we learn from that lesson? When you go to a party, just go all out - but of course, in the right way. Wear the right amount of make-up (not too much), choose a lovely dress that suitable with our body type, elegant hair-do, and don't forget those killer heels. When you feel that you look beautiful (not in a narcissistic way), you will feel confident and this will certainly make you feel like you are a princess, a Cinderella. If there's a guy at the party that interested in you and become your prince charming, then it's killing two bird in one stone, right?

If you are looking for elegant and chic dresses or gowns, Sherry London is the place you should check out. Their prom dresses are beautiful. Here are a few dresses that I love :

Pretty, right? :)

So, are you ready to be your own Cinderella? :)
