InspirationsToday it’s all about inspirations…

I love to be inspired and constantly search online for inspiration. Like many Mothers i try to find relevance to be able to relate and be inspired as a whole, be in in terms of health, fashion, fitness, food, lifestyle and more. Thanks to technology and fast internet + data i am constantly on the roll of things today even with two active bumble bee children and an adorable pet dog.

Today, i’m sharing with all my top 5 favourite Momma Website that i often read…

Cheeserland – A fashion blogger turned Mom to two beautiful children, a personal friend and neighbour, plus one of the most famous yet longest blogger i know and followed. She has been one true inspiration that had me started this website to build, groom and grow as a person. As many local readers already know, she is truly an inspiration to many around the world (especially our local Malaysians and her extended fans over in Japan). What’s there not to love~ it’s cheesie!

Startamomblog – A mom to two beautiful little girls and the wife to a wonderful man. She inspires Mothers from all around the world to start a mom blog by guiding them with various tips and tricks while specific yet useful advice for moms to handle situations better with their children. Suzi, the author is one of the sweetest, kind, and savvy person i know (plus she is known as one amazing engineer blogger) . If you need some tips or any advice on creating a mom blog, her blog is most certainly one place you ought to visit!

Rane Chin – Also known as The Beauty Junkie from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. An inspiring yet elegant mom for 2 beautiful daughters with the latest updates on beauty, trends and gigs in town. If you haven’t seen her blog do scroll and take a look for yourself. :p

Laurenne Hopkins – I have been a silent reader of Laurenne for the longest time. The first blog i followed of hers was known as This Mummy and ever since she migrated, i find her articles has grown along with her. A mother of 2 little girls and a new born baby boy she is still as inspiring as ever. Her articles goes a long way with parenting advice and experiences, recipes, DIY and more.

Mommy My Way – A beautiful lady and single mom whom i am totally inspired by. Her blogs shares the way she raises her infant son through career advice, traveling tips, fashion inspiration and more, all while juggling a full-time job and working toward an MBA. Mind you, this brilliant lady is also an entrepreneur plus she also holds a support group in Facebook for like minded Mothers while spreading her love, support and knowledge about blogging to all. An inspiring person she is both inside and outside. *heart*

I hope this article can spark some light to some of you here as these beautiful ladies inspired me so much. 🙂

The Moor Mud Cleansing bar surprisingly is one of my favourite products from this range.

Personally, i have never been a fan of bar soaps until i tried XYLIQUE™ Moor Mud Deep Cleansing bar. It easily foams up as i lather and massaged it all over my face. Upon cleaning it off, my skin felt light, refreshed, cleansed and slightly minty (which i personally love).

image

The Moor Mud Revival Mask is made from 100% pure vital moor complex with no added ingredients. It deeply nourishes and replenishes skin for increased suppleness and healthy, youthful glow.

To use, I mixed a teaspoon of the mask with 2 drops of water and it smoothens out into a paste. After that i applied it directly onto my face and leave it on for a good 3 min for first application and gradually build to a maximum of 10 minutes with each application.

Once the time is up, i rinsed it off with warm water and my face felt fantabulously refreshed. *hearts*

Next i applied the Hydrating Toning Lotion. It contains phyto-hyaluronate, seaweed, green tea, juniper and sage. This cooling, alcohol free toning lotion contains hydrating and softening botanical extracts that plumps dehydrated skin.

image

I love the Intense Radiance Serum. It is known to reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation, sun spots, and acne scars. The exclusive formulation contains niacin amide and herbal extracts to brighten the complexion and even out skin tone. Upon cleansing and toning, i massage the serum over my face and neck  and find that it absorbs rather easily into my skin. I would highly recommend this to everyone!

image

I then applied the XYLIQUE™ Hydrating Cream. Mind you, this is a cream not lotion as stated. I felt that using just a little bit was enough for my full face and neck (saves quite a lot in the long run as you only need a little bit). The product contains ingredients such as plant sterols, sweet potato, thyme, rosemary, goldenseal and more amazing ingredients to deeply hydrate, protect and revitalise the skin.

I have been using this range of products for over a week now and i can’t seem to find any faults to complain about. I am glad that there are products like these in the market (100% natural source products are generally rather hard to find)

Tips for Traveling To The Beach.

998970_10151917913348092_1651141950_nI have always loved to have a relaxing holiday by the beach. Staying in Malaysia i have been blessed to be able to head to the beach almost at anytime we wished, much thanks to our tropical climate here. The beach is probably the best destination to rest, recuperate, relax and enjoy. Studies said that having holiday at the Beach can help to unstress body and mind, other than that it will increasing positive mood.

Going to beach seems to be easy, but there are many things you should prepare before you go. Here is some tips for travelling to the beach:
Use your sunblock – One of the most important thing before going to the beach. Use a proper sunblock with SPF to protect your skin from UV A and UV B. It also can prevent you to get a darker skin and sun brunt that could ruin not only your skin but also your holiday.
Wear sunglases – Although seeing the beach could relax your eyes, but the sun does not. After protecting your body from the sun, its also as important to protect your eyes. Ultraviolet can iritate your eyes and in an extreme case it can causing blindness. Bright light also can hurt the retina. So you have to protect your eyes with sunglases in order to keep your eyes healthy.
Choose the beach wisely – Even some beach are looked like the same, but you have to carefuly choose your beach destination. Pick the beach with good environment, bright sea colour, friendly local, good view and good resort is a must.
Go in the good timing (sun bright, no rain) – Good timing is crucial thing if you want to traveling to the beach. During the monsoon which is from October until late February is the time you have to avoid if you want to go to the beach. Many restaurant and resort are close because of the strong winds and heavy rains. Mid year is the best choice to go to the beach because it is a summer time. You can see beautiful sunrise or sunset across the beach and doing sunbathing in the afternoon.
Watersport – Challange your self in the beach! It’s the best alternate to having a healthy and fun sport plus holiday for you. Don’t forget to check what kind of watersport available in your beach destination such as jetski, parasailing, snorkeling or even scuba diving. Its the perfect way to keep your body fit in and after the holiday.

Hi-Tea ~ Flower Tea Review

image
Flower tea has been in the world for centuries. Each tea brings an exquisite taste as well as effect to one individal with certain health benefits. Ever since i have been exposed to learn about flower teas i have been hooked. I loved the scent, the soothing effect that it gives me and the benefits it provides to me overall.

Although that being said, there are many grades of teas in the market and i sincerely believe that good quality grade premium teas brings you better results and are known to be little and/or free of chemicals. One of my favourite Tea Brands in the market right now are known as Hi-Tea.

Recently, i have tried 5 amazing blooms with their own unique aromatic fragrances of flower tea from Hi-Tea. These are known as Peach Fruit Tea, Lavender, Rosemary, Sweet Osmanthus and Blooming Tea. Each individual flower teas are packed into food graded zip lock bag to ensure its freshness.

imageMy personal favourite are the Peach Fruit Tea and Sweet Osmanthus. They are both refreshing and has a hint of sweetness to it at the same time. Peach tea is known to have a variety of health benefits such as relief from hypokalemia, cancer, obesity and are known to be herbal detoxification. Osmanthus flower tea helps dispels cold and dampness in the body, decrease the mucus caused by inflamed lungs and reduce coughing, treats menstrual pain, as well as regular stomach pain, tooth aches, warms stomach, improves digestion, treats intestinal diseases and reduces the amount of stomach gas, removes many toxins from the body while moisturises the skin.

A personal favourite blend of mine is a mixture of Flower Teas

image(Sweet Osmanthus, Lavender and Rosemary).

image

Method :

2g of Lavender + 2 gram of Sweet Osmanthus and 1 gram of Rosemary. This creates a soothing and relaxing fragrance to both the mind and soul with a unique lingering taste on the tastebud.

image

Blooming tea, or otherwise known as flowering tea, is the combination of green tea leaves and certain flowers. One or more dried flowers are wrapped in bundles of dried tea leaves formed into a bulb shape then set for drying. Other than its unique and refreshing taste, its aesthetic is truly remarkable. The bulb, once put in boiling water, expands and unfurls into something like a blooming flower which is indeed very pretty to watch. It also brings amazing benefits such as improving metabolism, boost brain functions, protects the heart, kills bacteria in the mouth, alleviates stress and more.
