A Special Gift for Baby Seth and a deal for all!

Taking a break from my holiday posts (yes, I do lead a normal lead, and I do wish I’m a full time traveler), I’m here to share a great deal for all mummies or friends of soon to pop mummies!

You know social media works when someone like me knows exactly what to get for a friend’s baby shower! Back in March 14, I read Lady J’s post on a perfect present for her friend’s little one and I thought it was the perfect gift! I didn’t bookmark the page or note it down but I thought, wow, if I have a kid, I would love this too! And just two weeks back, when I was cracking my head to source for Baby Seth’s present, Lady J’s post on MyBabyGift popped right into my mind! Talk about brand recall and “Top of the Mind” brand!

There were many reasons to get a gift from MyBabyGift and I’m sure many of you can relate to them! Before I begin, I think I’m sounding like I’m writing a proposal to convince my boss to pick my marketing strategy! As a matter of fact, I thought I need a lot of convincing from the man to get this, but he just nodded and say, go ahead. Haha. And oh, to clarify, I didn’t received any monetary benefits from MyBabyGift but I did enjoy a $10 off their hamper using an offer code listed in their Facebook page!

So here are my personal reasons for picking this gift!

Baby’s Mummy is a Glamorous One: If you know my friend, she is one glamorous and stylish babe, you know her child can’t settle for an ordinary gift. It must be special! Extraordinary! Look at her baby shower’s picture! She has a dessert table for Seth’s One Month Old Party! This is even more glamorous than a wedding! Haha.

Gift Differentiation: Many friends will be gifting baby clothes and toys, but after receiving 20 – 30 gifts from different friends and relatives, the receiver may not remember who gave what after a while. I want Baby Seth to remember, Auntie Serene bought her a towel with his name on it! I think it’s cool, but maybe not Baby Seth 20 years down the road.

Special Keepsake: I heard it’s really really fast for babies to outgrow their clothes and toys and soon, the regular gifted clothes and toys will be passed down to others, donated or kept in storage. But which mum will give away a towel/jumper/blanket with their precious little one’s name embroidered on it! I won’t! I will probably keep them for as long as it last!

A Romantic Gift: Some of my practical mummy friends prefer supermarket vouchers while others prefer cash, yes, baby can be expensive! I heard they drink a tin of milk within 2 weeks and used up diapers like toilet papers! Gasped! So yes, gift vouchers and cash is good, but leave those to their relatives! I believe this is one luxurious gift which even the practical mum will love. It is something that a new mum may not have the heart to splurge on but will be thrilled to receive! I know I would! Gosh, why am I getting excited about this.

Yet still Practical: It is after all still baby clothes and necessity, we are not talking about diamonds you know!

I don’t have to leave my home: This was one of the best reason! Everything was settled online, I bought the items using my iPhone in a car ride on a Saturday, received them within 3 days! Best of all, it included a card with my message, packed really nicely and delivered to my place! It is best for friends who are overseas and would like to send a gift to your friends in Singapore too! They deliver to hospital or home!

Look at how delighted Sue Ann (she is still a hottie, can’t believe she just popped!) is when receiving her gift! She squealed in joy and said, this was what Fann Wong received too!

Haha. Yes, Fann Wong received this for her Baby Zed too! Haha.

When we left her place, the man commented that, seeing how happy the mummy is, it was money well spent. What I forget to tell him was, that’s our Sue Ann. Ever happy and bubbly Sue Ann.

Seeing how thrilled my friend is with the gift, it got me really excited to want to share this deal with my friends! So I unabashedly asked the folks from MyBabyGift if they would like to spread the love to others!

So here’s a special deal for you:

Won Holster Jelly Sandals!

Remember a while back I was raving about Material World’s giveaway? I actually won something! This is just getting better! Haha. I won a pair of Holster sandals!

OMG! I am all ready for a beach holiday! I redeemed it at Not to Big at Forum and picked from a range of sandals! My final pick? True to my original pick – Holster’s St Tropez Jelly Sandals!

Not too big is having a push cart outside the store and their Holster sandals are on sale! It seems like it has been here for a while because Lady J scored a pair on discount a while back!

The range which I get to pick from! I wanted the one in gold but they ran out of sizes so the grey one is my next pick! I heard these range is on a 15% discount!

photo (65)

There are many pretties for the little ones too! When mummies loves it, you know for sure they are comfortable. But when non mummies also love it, it has got to be fashionable. I’m lucky to score a pair of stylish and comfortable sandals!

I badly need a pedicure. Yikes.

That’s me. A lazy Sunday after Yoga with my new Holster Jelly Sandals!

Now all I need is a pretty beach coverup and I am all armed for my beach holiday! Thank you Material World for the giveaway!

My take on Eyeshadows and Material World’s Anna Sui Giveaway!

Did I mention I love participating in Giveaways? I think I did. Did I mention that Material World is awesome with lots of interesting Giveaways? I think I did. Gosh, participating in giveaways is like buying lottery except that you don’t have to spend a single cent! Yay! And winning giveaways make me happy! What’s not to like when you can enjoy tiny victories in the form of giveaways! Haha. Of course, I do not participate in every giveaway just to win something. I participate in something I can relate to and things I really like! Just that there are plenty all over. Haha.

So back to the latest Material World giveaway! Material World is giving away Anna Sui Limited Eye Shadow Palette 2013 in No. 2, and it triggered some thoughts on my views on eyeshadows colours.

Basically, I am boring when it comes to the colours of eyeshadows. I stick to natural, earth and brown tones most of the time. I declare that it looks best for Asian girls. At least for me!

Here are some colours I tried previously:-

  • Pink: I tried and looked like I have swollen eyes. Freaking puffy goldfish.
  • Blue: Please don’t ask me why I even bother. I look like someone from Mars. Blue and creepy.
  • Green: Yes. I tried green. The makeup artist must have hated me. She applied green eyeshadow and blood red lipstick in my Varsity Pageant Finals. Yes, I participated in pageants before, that is a story for another day. But freaking green eyeshadow and blood red lipstick? She explained that she thinks I can carry it off. Did I mentioned my gown was pastel blue? Gosh. I almost burst out in tears.
  • Black/Grey: I saw Steph doing her smokey eyes during our D&D one year, tried and ended up looking like a Panda with two black eyes.

Ever since these incidents, I’ve stick with my safest brown, earth and slightly shimmering gold hues. I believe there are nothing wrong with the colours, it is probably just me. I am contemplating if I should go for makeup workshops. HMPH.

Here’s my faithful eyeshadow from L’Oreal which I’ve used for a long time. This is my daily palette and also the palette I used during fancy dinners.

But when I read that Material World is giving away Anna Sui Limited Eye Shadow Palette 2013 in No. 2, the palette is perfect! Something for a change. I want it! This is definitely in time to replace my almost gone L’Oreal eyeshadow! Keeping my fingers crossed. Haha.

Luxe.

Dear male readers,

The following entry is meant for the girls. So please scroll right pass this entry and go read on other random entries if you’ve not already done so.

Regards,
SbR

I saw this product on the shelf recently and fell in love with the packaging but was also curious yet skeptical about their claimed revolutionary technology and the pricey price tag that comes with it.

kotex luxe

Through surfing CozyCot – the #1 Women’s sites for 3 straight years – I came across a banner screaming “Get Your Free Trial Here!” and was thrilled to know that I can try them for free! I love samples! I love the fact that you can try out new products before making any purchase! That’s zero financial and product risks involved! Did I mention I’m actually a whisper-converted-to-kotex user because of a sampling campaign?! From the marketer’s point of view, sampling though costly can be effective if it is accurately targeted to the right audience.

cozy cot

But here’s the catch (there’s no free meal in this world), Kotex expects you to join their mailing list and fill out a simple survey (which can be easily completed in 2 minutes) before mailing the samples to your house!

Kotex Luxe, the first ultrathin pad that gives you breakthrough Fusion Technology* combining dryness and comfort with just 1 pad. No more compromises!

  • Fusion Technology* A revolutionary combination of dry-net and cotton-like covers to help you get the dryness of net and the softness of cotton.
  • MicroMax® Core Super absorbent ultrathin core to help maximize protection.
  • Longer Wings Provide better side coverage that helps prevent side leaks and stains
  • Anti-leak channels Channel fluid within the pad to help prevent leakage all around.

I will try them out and let you girls know if it actually feel as good as they claimed!
