My Weight Loss Journey Begins

Anyone who has struggled with weight gain and loss over and over again is no stranger to the frustration of the added kilos, and the delight of those lost.

Some people have metabolisms that help them burn their calorie intake quickly, and I envy those people, because what is better in life than food? On the other side of the spectrum where I belong, I constantly watch what I eat, and God forbid I feel like enjoying a well deserved meal or snack once in a blue moon, I find that I gain at least a kilo the next morning. Depressing, right? read more

Babymoon In Paris

A few months ago my husband and I chose to go on a roughly 2 week long babymoon to Paris to relax a while before the arrival of our second baby. I was in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy which is ideal for travel because the nausea and fatigue of the 1st are more or less gone, and the pain and heaviness of the 3rd trimester are still far away. I travel light because its all about the experience for me and never about fashion, so I packed a couple of sweatpants, tops and comfy shoes, and was set to go with only 1 carry on handbag and nothing else! Although I had planned a minimal effort trip with site-seeing spread out as to not exhaust myself, I found myself thirsty for this city, and we were touring like crazy from early morning to past midnight on a daily basis! read more

Some types of skin are more prone than others to develop them, and once they happen it is near impossible to fix them. I was fully aware of this when I began my pregnant journey. I don’t exactly remember where I heard that almond oil is more efficient than any type of cream, so I went ahead and bought a bottle from the pharmacy. I had previously tried it for a short period of time when I was on my pre-wedding diet. read more

Pregnancy is a time of major changes in a woman’s life. Its a transition into a new phase and the physical transformations take a toll on an emotional level.

I searched for some new maternity styles that flatter your bump while still being comfy, and found some tops and blouses at PreMaman shop that I would like to share with you. read more
