Let’s not button up, baby.

Dressing up an active baby can actually be pretty stressful!

As a mother of 4, I have had my fair share of disasters when it comes to dressing my babies. Buying those really cute but too complicated wear outfits is A BIG NO NO!

9 years on and along came Shakeel. So when the time came for me to shop for my little Shark’s wardrobe, I had learnt my lesson and now go for practical instead of going overboard.

Thank goodness for OETEO’s (ee-tay-o) EASYEO rompers which have no fastening and thus making it hassle-free and easy to dress your little ones up in a few quick minutes!

Look at this cute EASYEO romper which Shakeel was wearing. If I had not told you, you would have guessed that it was a polo tee and shorts right?

But surprise, surprise, it’s an EASYEO romper! EEEEHAAAAAA!

oeteo3

Yes, their Classic Essential, Little Dreamers and Little Visionaries rompers are buttonless, mummies! The elastic waistband creates a gentle snug fit that makes it so comfortable for babies!

Just watch this short clip and you will know what I mean!

The EASYEO that Shakeel was wearing even comes in a set!

 

oeteo5

 

 

Set Consists of:

  • Little Inventor Romper
  • Little Inventor Beanie
  • Little Inventor Welcoming Blanket
  • Little Inventor Mittens Set
  • Little Inventor Booties Set

 

One thing that I often try to avoid when dressing Shakeel up is BUTTONS! I think with baby clothes, buttons are pretty much in the way of everything. They are definitely not baby friendly – even the happiest baby can turn cranky instantly! I am not sure whether this has happened to you before but when it comes to dressing Shakeel up, he will always try to wriggle away before I am even done with one button! I am not sure who is the impatient one here – ME OR HIM.

This Little Dreamers is made of 100% fine cotton, and it has an inbuilt fold over mittens and footies too! And just like the other OETEO’S EASYEO romper, this EASYWEAR romper one has a polyester elastic waistband as well!

No buttons, no snaps, no zips!

SAY YES TO A HAPPIER BABY!

Let’s face it mummies – baby clothes with buttons, zips and snaps are fiddly, time consuming and stressful for the mummy!

Oh, one more thing I super love about the patent pending OETEO’s EASYEO rompers is how they come with a back pocket flap which can be folded compactly for easy storage or brought along when you are out and about as a spare outfit in case of a diaper blow-out!

Watch this!

 

Actually there are so many plus points about OETEO’s EASYEO rompers!

  1. Soft and fine cotton
  2. Gentle snug fitting
  3. No zips. No snaps. No buttons.
  4. Effortless dressing
  5. Time saving
  6. Foldable and thoughtful
  7. Good value for money

 

Comfort aside, OETEO’s baby apparel are safe and free of harmful substances as they are made of high quality OEKO-TEX® certified fabric.

OETEO (ee-tay-o) also offers baby apparel (0-18 months) and Family style apparel (postpartum styles for ladies, men’s polo and tees) so that the whole family can step out in style together.

The greatest creation yet!

Thanks OETEO for making dressing up moments for my boy so fast and fuss free!

Bag It: Randoseru

My girls have this craze for unique looking bags that they can bring to school or for their outings with us. So they are always on the lookout for bags to add on to their current collection.

What can I say – girls will be girls!

rb2 

The latest one that Sharleez got is this randoseru bag from Atsuta online

KAWAIIIIIIII!

 rb1

 rb3

She even brings the back to school!

ATS8

For beginners, a randoseru bag is a firm-sided and fashionable backpack made of stitched firm leather material, most commonly used in Japan by elementary school children. They are usually given to the kids when they begin their first year of school. The bag will be used all the way until they reach grade 6!

What am I trying to say?

A randoseru bag is built to last because kids carry the same bag for six years! So cost saving.

This bag even withstands any weather conditions like rain and snow. This makes it very practical actually, since bigger children commute to school.

ats11

I like how the backpack has a sturdy back so that in case of falling, it will protect the child’s spine from injury.

ats10

 

In a nutshell, the bag is:

  • Fashionable
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • User friendly
  • Handy
  • Unique Interior

 

 

rb4

And on days when Sharleez is not using the bag, I can use it just like those adults in English. LOL.

Besides this design, Atsuta online also carries other designs like the following!

ATS1

 

 

 

 

And check out the details of the bag!

 ATS6

ATS5

ATS4

 

 

 

Definitely a good choice, Sharleez! I approve!

 ats12

 

And now that the twins have seen for themselves how cool and chic Sharleez looks with the bag, they too want one Barandoseru each!

Maternity Wear: YAY or NAY?

Being pregnant can sometimes cause chaos to your wardrobe and fashion sense. The first three months will make you want to almost give up in life, especially if you suffer from a bad case of morning sickness like me! Then you will see yourself wearing the same thing almost everyday because you just cannot be bothered to even look at yourself in the mirror, what more decide on what to wear?

Then, when the tummy starts to grow and the body expands sideways, you will realise that almost everything in your current wardrobe does not fit you anymore. Another cause of misery. I had to do quite a serious case of shopping when that happened to me. But you cannot possibly keep shopping for new clothes, right? I mean, what happens to those clothes the moment baby is out? I am not too sure about you, but I know I will need to lose some weight.

How now brown cow? Maternity wear?

HONESTLY SPEAKING, I HAVE NEVER FOUND MATERNITY WEAR APPEALING.

Besides the fact that they will normally cost more than normal wear, they usually look very….BORING. Big oversized dresses with funny prints, flare tops, and baggy pants, just to name a few. Urgh!

The clothes are supposed to show off that bump, not hide it! So why must they make maternity wear so big and baggy?

As such, I have never owned a single maternity wear for the many times I got pregnant.

But when I chanced upon Jump Eat Cry (www.jumpeatcry.com), a Singapore-based eCommerce store that sells Maternity and Nursing Wear, I changed my mind totally!

I didn’t know maternity and nursing wear could be so stylish AND Super affordable! We are looking at an average price of $35 per outfit. Definitely a rare find. And what’s more, they have a massive collection of maternity and nursing wear! New arrivals every week too.

And so I decided to shop for my first ever maternity wear. Then decided again to add to cart my second and third outfits. LOL.

Want to see what I bought?

VERY PLEASED, IF I MAY ADD.

This one, a very simple dress but it is also must have! Can pair it with my favourite outerwear or accessories, or just wear it on its own for that sophisticated look.

JEC3

And oh my god, it is so cooling and comfortable, and fits me nicely!

What I like best about it is the fact that it provides infinite wearing – I can wear it before, during and after pregnancy!

It does not look so big and baggy on me right? Exactly the reason why I love it so much toooo! Click HERE to view details and purchase.

In case you are wondering, yes it is free size!

The second outfit I got myself is this 2 Piece Midi Dress

JEC2

The third outfit is my first ever nursing wear! He he he.

This Owl 2 Piece Nursing Dress looks too cute to be a nursing wear for mummies!

JEC1

You can head in and take a look at more of their designs at Jump Eat Cry by clicking on the link HERE!

They launch new collections every week to keep mummies like you and me in style!

Oh I just found out that the Mothercot Label is their own In-House designs. Designs are drawn and sketched out, and materials are delicately picked out to provide the best comfort for mummies!

For all my pregnant and nursing readers, you will get to enjoy a special 15% discount just by keying in ETRANGLE15 before checking out!

The best thing is, the 15% off includes even the sale items!

THIS DISCOUNT CODE WILL EXPIRE ON 31 JULY 2016, SO HURRY NOW!

The Reveal.

My girls, they want to do whatever I am doing.

THEY ARE SUCH CUTE COPYKITTIES (a nicer and cuter way of calling them copycats lol)!

We share the same interest in music because they basically listen to whatever I listen to. How convenient.

Our conversations will be mostly about music on most days. We talk about the artistes like they are friends we hang out with. LOL.

For instance,

Me:

Did you guys know that Sandra (from The Sam Willows) does yoga?

Myreen:

Yah lah I know. She does it every time.

Sharleez:

And she always has a band around her left arm.

Mysha:

I wonder where she does her hair. It is so nice!

Myreen:

Aiyah, I think from Shunji Matsuo. Check her IG lah.

—————————————————-

Yes, if it is not obvious enough, their recent craze is The Sam Willows. Now my next question will be, who did you think introduced them to The Sam Willows?

YOURS TRULY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

We sing along to songs from Backstreet Boys, One Republic, Muse, Keane, Imagine Dragons, The Beatles, The Killers, Demi Lavato, P!nk, Taylor Swift, and so on. The list is of course, non-exhaustive.

My girls talk exactly like me. Sharleez especially reminds me a lot of myself when she talks because she always has her hidden jokes. And she is a super sarcastic person too. So each time I get annoyed at them, I will pause and think, “Hey, they are just like me. I must be that annoying to others as well.”

It is nice to know that I am my daughters’ role model and they find me cool! HAHA. That was my ultimate goal when I first became a mummy.

My daughters are indeed my best friends. I mean, we practically do almost everything together. At this present moment, they want to be included in almost everything that I do. I am just thinking whether this would be the case when they grow up into teenagers. By then, their mummy would not be so cool anymore to them. Boohoo. With the social media influence and rapid pace of technological change, I expect them to look up to a certain celebrity or icon as their ultimate role model anytime soon. Would they want to include me in their lives still, or would I be a total hindrance? Boohoo again.

But hey, everyone needs a good role model.

As a blogger myself, it is not a surprise if some of my followers refer to me as their role model too. Some will always support me in everything I do. Some just follow me because they want to be busybodies. LOL. Some do not really like me that much but still follow me because they want to be updated with the good and bad in my daily life. LOL again. Do not worry, I am cool about it.

My mission as a social media influencer is to influence, inspire and motivate in the most natural way possible via my blog and other social media postings. I do not like to be seen as perfect because the reality is, my life is far from perfect. If you have been following my recent Facebook posts, you would have noticed my frequent meltdowns. Please just blame it on my PMS. It is never easy being a woman.

My point is, I can always choose to abstain from showing you the other side of me or my life. But hey, I want my followers to see that I am just like everyone else too, with bad days and all. I am loving, clumsy, careless, candid, comical, temperamental, and easily agitated. Yes, I am all that and more. Now, of course you should know my style by now – I do not exactly share everything with you. Only stuff that I feel will not do much harm to those reading it. I am pretty much selective. If they can benefit or learn a thing or two from my posts, all the better.

Back to my girls.

We have a new baby.

Okay please do not get so paranoid and just continue reading to know more about our new baby.

Most importantly, the baby is definitely not the pregnant kind of baby.

Disappointed already? LOL.

Read on if you still want to find out.

I have promised my girls some time back that I will let them blog like me once the time is right. And they have been pestering me ever since.

I kept forgetting. I kept being preoccupied with other things. I kept telling myself that I would work on it the next day. And when the next day came, I would forget all about it.

When I had a conversation with my sister the other day, she told me that I should have done this waayyyyyyyyyyy back. I recall her telling me, “Go lah, go and do this. It’s something for you and the girls to be proud of.”

I brainstormed with her for ideas. It is not going to be just a blog. It is going to be everything included into one website, and Ili will be in charge of the web design. Thanks Ili (hello@sprinkieparties.com) for your help!

Now now now, you know how much I love dressing my girls up, don’t you? I have been doing this ever since they were born, and I am still not sick of dressing them up. To me, it is just like a good habit of mine which I believe has been successfully passed on to them. My girls take pride in the way they dress up, and I am not complaining. Kids who dress up or take the effort to look presentable for themselves and others will always feel good about themselves everywhere they go. I think that is definitely a good head-start as far as self confidence is concerned. What do you think?

So yes. Besides setting up a blog for the girls, I was thinking that I should also sell brand new kids clothing. Now when I talk about kids clothing, I am referring to the kind of clothes that I will normally buy for my girls. I mean, each time I post their photos online, I will have people asking me to share where I shop for their clothes.
