I’ve been wearing too many blacks lately.
Black blouse. Black tunic. Black t-shirt. Black cardigan.
Today I attended 2 events (which I will blog about later) and decided to wear black – again.
I can’t help it! Perhaps it’s because umm… black goes with anything?
I’m wearing a black cropped jacket from Forever21, gray asymmetrical top from Warehouse, maternity jeans from Funky Mama (I love it!), accessories from Forever21 and my favorite comfy heels from Eclipse. Even my sister is wearing black too. And don’t you just love her military-inspired jacket?
At only 1-ish year old, Ayra has already mastered using the iPhone. She knows how to unlock the screen, scroll through the pages, make a phone call to her Tok Ummi and even choose her favorite application of all the apps I have in it! (I recently downloaded a nursery rhyme app, “The Wheels On The Bus” and she loves it). I guess the iPhone user interface is so easy to use and appealing that even small children know how to use it.
But my husband and I would usually let her play with our iPhones as a last resort when she’s super cranky and nothing else seems to work. It’s a savior really, especially when we’re at events and whatnot.
Anyway, my husband brought back his company’s iPad earlier this week. We decided to let our little girl try it and she instantly know how to use it. Ahh well, it’s not surprising. iPad is after all, like a big version of iPhone!
I love how she uses her finger to point and scroll the page. Macam orang besar jer!
Ayra is going to be 17 months in about a week’s time.
Believe it or not, she only started to have her first tooth (well 2 actually; they came out serentak) when she was 15 months old! I started to get really worried when she turned 1 because I heard most babies have at least 6 teeth by the time they hit 1 year old. My pediatrician assured me it’s normal and there’s nothing to worry about. But of course I was still worried. Isn’t that what we moms do best? Semua benda risau.
I kept telling myself, maybe next month kot gigi dia start tumbuh. But still at 13 months old, there was no sign of tooth coming out. Same thing happened at 14 months old. I went back to see the pediatrician and was told the same thing. She told me that sometimes it’s just because of genetics (I guess my husband dulu tumbuh gigi lambat kot sebab my mom cakap I had my first tooth before I was 1 year old) and would only advice to start doing x-ray if she still doesn’t have any teeth by the time she’s 2 years old. There was still another 10 months to go. I was at ease after hearing her explanation (and of course after doing some research online) and stopped worrying since then.
And what do you know, one month later her teeth started to come out! I was happy! Tapi dia keluar taring dulu. Ayra is a half vampire, don’t play play! LOL.
She seems to go through the teething period with ease tho. No fever, no drooling, no chin rash, no cheek or ear pulling, and she sleeps well through the night. But she likes to suck her fingers (and hand) and is a little bit cranky at times. And she likes to bite and gnaws especially when breastfeeding. Argh!
Well I am not her main source of milk anymore (it has been a few months now and I’m not upset or anything about it because she’s over a year now. I mean it would happen anyway, sooner or later). In fact, I don’t think I have any milk left but she still
likes loves to suck for comfort or saja nak manja-manja or lepak-lepak. I’m not even sure if that is considered as breastfeeding. Or is that breastsucking? LOL.
Anyway I’m happy with that until recently when she started having teeth. Sometimes I even screamed and cried because it hurts so much. Plus I’m pregnant so “my twins” are extra sensitive. A part of me wants to totally stop breastfeeding her because of the pain, but another part of me kesian kat dia. Is there any way to ease the pain during breastfeeding? Or should I just stop breastfeeding her? Tapi dia marah kalau tak kasi. Huhu.
How now brown cow?
My sister invited me to a beauty workshop by Shu Uemura last Saturday, at Shu Uemura boutique in Sunway Pyramid. Other bloggers who joined this workshop besides my 2 sisters were Leen, Fadd, Farah, Reena and Hanis’ friend (whose name I’ve forgotten).
Just so you know, I’ve started wearing makeup more than 5 years ago and all these while I only learn makeup on my own through experiments – with the help of my sisters (that’s the fun thing about having sisters!), beauty magazines, books and the internet. This is actually my very first time attending a makeup workshop so of course I was excited!
Besides learning about the right techniques, tips and tricks about makeup, we get to try out Shu Uemura products as well – from cleanser to (eyelash) curler.
First, we were asked to remove our makeup using one of their iconic products, the Cleansing Oil. It doubles as a makeup remover and a cleanser so even if you don’t have your makeup on, you can still cleanse your face using the cleansing oil.
I like the cleansing oil as a cleanser but when it comes to removing makeup, I still prefer using my good ol’ trusty Fasio makeup remover. I find it a bit hard to remove eye makeup using the Cleansing Oil, especially waterproof mascara.
I had to really take my time to massage my eye area until I accidentally rub the Cleansing Oil into my eyes! It was so red but it didn’t sting. It was a little discomforting tho as I had my contact lens on but my eyes were fine after cleaning them with a solution.
