How to get dress in the dark

I'll have to admit. I get dress in the dark. For work. For real.

With me just pulling clothes out of my closet and crossing my fingers they'll somehow match. And couple that with my almost photographic mind, ahem.

Which is why these office clothing for women are perfect for getting dress in the dark. Well, not that any of you would do it. But you never know till you got 2 kids still co-sleeping with ya!

Mango Minimal Dress
River Island Slinky Jersey Drape Dress


Zalora Colourblock Shirt Dress
Zalora Pyjama Blouse










































And as you can tell from the dresses I've picked, its almost similar to wearing my pyjamas to work. Not that any of you would do it. But these are perfect for, well what do ya'll know?! For pulling out of your closet in the dark and getting dressed in it! Double bingo!

An irrational fear of nothing actually

I don't usually kiss my kids in the mornings before I leave for work. That is because I have this irrational fear that they'll wake up and not go back to sleep, and it's not like it hasn't happened before though.

Although usually right before we go to bed, I'll let them play around in the room, on the bed and let them spend whatever energy they have left just so you know, in the hopes of them falling asleep reeaaally soon.

When I was much younger, I would watch my mum apply lipstick before she goes to work and now, my sons are watching me do the same thing too. And speaking of lipsticks, I never thought that I'll ever used one. I've always thought it was such an adult woman thing to do, applying lipstick.

And now that I'm an actual older adult woman, I find that applying lipstick actually makes me feel more of an actual adult? I guess it's the feeling of empowerment when one gets to do such an adult thing for real. I do however also have an irrational fear of having cracked dried lipstick lips though. And to combat this, I would apply a clear layer of lip balm before my lipstick.


Got this at Watson. The brand is called essence and
really affordable at $2.50!






































































No idea what that little bugger was doing in the above photos but it seems like he's enjoying it though. #weirdsonwithweirdhumour.


































So glad it's finally Friday!!!

Sunday

As much as I must admit, it is hard for me to think of places to bring my boys to. Its always either too far, too inaccessible, too hot, too expensive or simply, too lazy.

But yesterday I was desperate for us to go out and have some fun before their new school term starts and since it was a sweltering hot day, I decided to bring them for some water play time!





































It felt great as I get to enjoy my coffee and donuts while they had a splashing good time! There was no need for me to rush them, no agendas to follow and I must say, it's really nice to see them run around after their bouts of coughing fits for the past month.

We had a leisurely lunch followed by cupcakes and in my excitement to get Benjamin some new pants, I spent about $90 for both boys in the end at Cotton On kids. Ouch. I don't even spend that much on my clothes either!

But this, this was the best water play for us all. It finally rained, no, poured after several weeks of blazing hot sun.

































Like they all like to say, Showers of blessings.

Work it

In life, its not always from head to toe, you know what I'm saying? Sometimes, its easier to get from the bottom up and hey, isn't that what we're all trying to do?

Work our way up.

With these motto in mind, I'll let my shoes do the talking and style my way up.



























   

               
                             Grandora Oxfords
Arelaven Heels


































Luma Flats
Fling Flats
These are some of the looks that I've styled up to go with the Aldo women shoes and rest assured I'll only style clothes that I'll personally will wear. Not that I'm a stylist though.

Sunday

I had grand plans to bring the boys to the Bird Park's water play yesterday but guess where we ended up?

Chinese Garden!

We had lunch with another family and since their daughter had terrible car sickness, we decided to bring them to the Chinese Garden instead as it doesn't involved taking the bus and was easily accessible by train. 


































We chanced upon the Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum where we saw all kinds of it and the Chinese in us began to ask our western friends if they've tried the infamous Turtle Soup. Cue sadistic laughter and evil glint in eyes as we saw rows and rows of turtles in their tanks. It was almost like a buffet. Muahahahha.



































And Jeb proceeded to call all the turtles and tortoises there Mikey, after the Ninja turtle Michelangelo "_"

And then we saw this guy just nonchalantly digging the ground presumably for his lunch.



































And then the kids decided to end the visit there and then with, "I wanna go eat ice-cream, NOW".

Yes boss.

It was a nice Sunday spent with our friends and watching the boys all running wild while their tired parents lugged behind them.

Shoes are you?

When you're a mother of two active boys, any time spent not chasing or running after them or being on the go is time spent wasting on frivolous things like buckling my dainty sandals?!?!

Oh?!

Heck. Even my time spent brushing my teeth in the mornings are peppered with, "Mama! Why are you taking such a long time?!! Mama!"

So.

With so much pressure from my kids to hurry up, mother here ain't got no time to tie my dainty sandals no more eh?

And that's why my choice of footwear now are these comfortable slip-on shoes for women. Especially for mothers if I may add. 


Zalora
Animal Print Slip ons
Shellys London

The above is just one of the few pairs that I've gotten so far! Unfortunately I had to return it as there was a stain on one side of the shoe.

But! I'm waiting for the rest to arrived!

Woe is to be me

My nights with them are too short. Now that Benjamin has homework (HOMEWORK!), our nights have been spent like this; dinner, homework, shower, a little Youtube time while I try my darndest to have the world's fastest shower before Jeb kicks down the door, milk and then off to bed.

So all in all, I'll spend like maximum 2 hours wake time with them?

And it doesn't help at all when even that little time I have,almost half of it is spent on disciplining the boys. My helper has no power over them and when some guy gets up to mischief or is being defiant on purpose, I have no choice but to do it.

I (insert F bomb) hate it. 

Not that I have to discipline them, but it is the emotional turmoil within me that makes me feel terrible every single night.

I hate that they have to end up in tears before bed. I hate that I have to be the one doing it. I hate that they might come to associate me with cane and pain every time I come home.

And slowly, they might dread me coming home.

I just. I don't know.

But I guess I still have to do it.
