my first Fendi 2Jours

So here it is.

I've gotten myself a new bag!

Promised myself that it will be the new bag for quite a long time, this time. Well, at least until both my kids are grown enough..

Made a pact that this would be my future motivation, too, in the career and motherhood department. Turning 30 made me re-evaluate a lot of things - the goals I wanted to achieve, the lessons I've learned and now, it all still feels like a dream to me. After all the hardship, a new bag is justified, right?

(Or maybe I'm just making up reasons to get a new bag HAHA.)

But but, getting a new bag and making a big purchase are big decisions (at least to me). I needed to do a lot of research on which bag I'd like to see myself wearing in the next few years, and it wasn't easy! Too many studs would look teenage-y, too flashy a leather would look pretentious, too big, too small - turning 30 turned me into an overthinker grandma FML.

So after a longg while, after browsing my go-to forums, after consulting a few trusted people, I landed my hands on this.

Got my first Fendi Petite 2Jours.

second pregnancy : 37 weeks!

OK so I don’t know how I managed to skip my second trimester update entirely, on this blog T.T

And surprise surprise, am now entering 37 weeks pregnant which means I have less than 3 weeks to go before the due date. WHAT THE.

Time flies crazy fast this time around!

So how am I doing so far? If you’ve seen the lack of updates on Instagram (I realized that my Insta stories and pictures are full of Rayyan’s shenanigans) it’s because I don’t have the energy to attempt any Insta-worthy photos of me, so Rayyan is quick to my saviour haha.

Girls, second pregnancy is a whole other alien world.

After the whole 9 months of first pregnancy experience, you’d think you know how to dress in your regular clothes while being heavily pregnant, but you don’t. You’d think you don’t need another maternity top(s) or bottom(s) because you simply didn’t need them during the first pregnancy, but this time around, surprise surprise, you do. You’d think you can get away with eating a bit more than usual because people keep telling your bump isn’t that big, but then came your next month’s gynae appointment and you found out you’ve gained 3 freaking kg.

Nothing goes right.

being a health conscious noob

Anyone who’s been following this blog would know I’m not really a health-conscious person.

My eating habit, in particular.

So I’ve tried making healthier dishes before, but it didn’t last very long (for my standard, at least. And that’s an already low one). I’ve never been to the gym. I’ve never considered exercising as part of my life. I used to take coffee every single morning – with an extra cup at night, too.

Until I got pregnant, and everyone asked – no, pleaded, really – for me to start taking care of my health better, and in that same sentence, for me to start taking veggies. So I started with salad, albeit irregularly.

And.. I started reading health-related articles, too. Something I’ve never bothered to do before!


Thank goodness for Positive Health Wellness, who came to my rescue to solve all my qualms about what being healthy is all about.

oh my gucci

Over the years, I realized that whenever I think about getting a new dependable bag, I’d always look for Gucci first.

It started when I was in Japan, being an undergrad student at a foreign university, under full scholarship hence I only need to pool a certain amount of my savings each month whenever I wanted to treat myself with something. Same goes to the time when I had my eyes on a Gucci bag I saw at a store in Saijo, a small pekan where I was living – the store carries all kinds of designer bags; Gucci, LV, Coach, Miu Miu, almost everything – and I remember I used to take a bus from my apartment just to visit the store and admire the bags.

(This kind of store is a common in Japan – you can find random stores carrying the authentic designer bags, mostly at super discounted price)

And one day, I saw this bag. I knew I wanted it as my first designer bag – so I saved up for it.
