    Pregnancy Handbag Essentials

    Pregnancy Handbag Essentials

    Carrying a 3 kg baby in your belly 24/7 is pretty darn tiring, and having to carry around additional weights from your handbag or purse can be such a burden which is why it’s important to streamline the contents of your bag and choose a bag that’s very lightweight.

    My favorite type of bag are sling or crossbody bags because they’re small and lightweight, and they stay on your shoulders and won’t slide off. My favorite bag at the moment is the Rebecca Minkoff Five Zip Mini Crossbody, which unfortunately is no longer available, but the Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Convertible Crossbody Bags are just as great!

    As for the contents…

      Spring Loose Curls: Maternity Photoshoot Feat. GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand

      stephanie_04-1s

      I had a “mandatory” maternity photoshoot done a while back, and I’m thrilled that I can finally share the outcome with you!

      Since I’m carrying a Spring baby, we had a light, airy, Spring theme. I chose warm colors for my makeup (products used listed in the post below) and I styled my hair in loose, effortless beach waves with a Spring-y flower crown using the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand.

      Check out the breakdown of the products I used for my hair and makeup, and also a step-by-step on how I did my hair (with a ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand review too!).

      10 Features of a “Perfect Family Car”

      Ford Kuga Family SUV

      I’m on my final stretch of pregnancy and so my husband and I have been contemplating on getting a larger car for our expanding family. Lucky for us, Ford Australia reached out and offered to let us try their Ford Kuga, their 5-seater small family SUV, for a few days.

      We decided to go on a staycation around Melbourne (since I don’t want to go too far away from where my hospital is!) and this made me realize how perfect this car is for an expanding family and for use during pregnancy as it had all my requirements for a “perfect family car”, especially during pregnancy, checked off!

      So what do we pregnant-with-a-toddler (or toddlers) mommas look for in a car?

      Basically space and convenience, amirite?

      Well, the Ford Kuga offers both, and so much more. Read more

      Car Emergency Makeup Kit: Only 5 Items!

      Car Emergency Makeup Kit (2)

      Ever been in such a rush that you had to apply makeup in the car? I’m sure most of us have!

      As a working/stay-at-home mom I barely have time to sit down and do my makeup, especially in the mornings. So having a “car emergency makeup kit” with items that are multitaskers and super quick to apply is mandatory!

      I always have this makeup kit in my car glovebox and best thing is, it only contains 5 small products and it fits in this tiny, gorgeous NARS bag. This makes it easy for me to pop this bag in my purse in case I’m the one driving and I have to apply my makeup once I arrive (usually in the bathroom LOL).

      All in all it usually takes me about 5 minutes to do all this in the car, maybe even less.
