Turning Incredible Hulk | You wouldn’t like me when I am Angry!

I am currently going through some kind of crisis in the family right now. We’ve been in this situation for the past 1 year and 4 months. I’ve never shared this with anyone except a trusted relative….. But, I will do so now. Because, I feel that by talking about it means that I  recognizing it. And by recognizing it means I am prepared to do more about it.

We’ve recently attended a panel discussion organized by Oreo. Oreo has pledge its commitment to help parent-child bonding in Singapore with the launch of its new campaign called “Bonding Moment starts with Oreo”. (I will leave this write up for another day…. I’ve got more pressing issues to settle here!)

And like always, there were model parents with model answers….. it seems like we are the only one stuck in this situation.

I am familiar with the topic of bonding. Since the birth of Hiroshi, I’ve chosen to stay at home and nurture him over a miserable pay check! During the crucial first 6 years of his life, we bonded. I remembered being a fun parent.

Hiroshi was a dream child. His fun loving nature made him easy to care for. I’ve never had to deal with terrible 2s or horrible 3s. In short, I missed those days where there was no other commitments other than having a good time with him.

With the start of former education, everything changed. It was the start of stressed up parenting coupled with screaming and caning. The first 6 years of bonding suddenly seems to not matter anymore….. I am turning into MOM-STER INC. It wasn’t doing the both of us any good.

It is an uphill struggle.
We are learning. Learning to be better parents.
We are praying to God for wisdom.
And any experts who wants to come help us out of this rut.

Style Essence | Singapore Mom Bloggers party on with Style!

Style Essence has kindly sponsored an image consulting workshop to mark the remarkable milestone of Singapore Mom Bloggers turning one. Although a certified makeup artist by profession, I got to admit that I suck at the fashion department. And it progressively got worst after having kids. As evident on this blog, I have the tendency of simply reaching out for the most comfortable items in the closet! And they tend to be repetitive!!! I need a new wardrobe!

The morning started with a familiar face as the instructor. Florinda; another mom blogger who blogs at www.victoria-eden.blogspot.sg. It turns out that Florinda is not only a mummy blogger, she is also a certified style coach and who runs Style Essence!! We were so in luck….. I honestly feel that it takes a mom to understand the grooming woes of another mom!

The session begins by an individual personal shape analysis. To know that I am still a hourglass-ish with some more work along the waistline is a comfort after having 3 kids! There was even a card given to us stating the most flattering cuts/style of clothes we could buy in accordance to our body shape! I love anything that is idiot proof.

Then we were educated on how we can dress taller, shorter or slimmer. The illusion of prints on clothes can make a huge difference on one’s physical appearance. Sometimes the clever use of accessories does the trick too!

Color analysis was next. A great tip Florinda shared was when trying to determine your color tone was to look underneath your wrist. If veins appears blue-ish or purple-ish, you have cool undertones. And if your veins appears green-ish, then you have warm undertones.

Next up was back to basic; Face Washing.
I swear I could just picture myself doing this with the kids screaming outside the toilet.
“Marrrrr-meeeeeeee Marrrrrrr-meeeeeeeeee open the door!”

Then it was time to pamper ourselves with Mary Kay’s Botanical Effects Formula 2 Mask. We all agreed that the mask does smell heavenly! Only manage to get half our faces masked since we wanted to witness the significant difference the mask would have made. Roomful of aspiring Phantoms of the Opera wannabe.

With a properly moisturized face.
We wondered into the colorful world of make up.
Now Singapore Mom Bloggers are empowered.
And we are all going to put our best face forward!
