Some of the personalized jewelry ideas include, name, foot prints, fingerprints and even handwriting. Isn’t this a cute idea to preserve one of my kid’s drawings in a customized pendant? Inspiring with all the design suggestions of Ninetwofive Jewelry, I decided to create a personalized necklace with my kid’s drawing on it. It is so precious. It is a great keepsake. It makes me proud always. Don’t forget that my kid is really proud of his artwork on a stylish pendant!

So, here is how we did!

Creating Personalized Drawing Necklace with Ninetwofive Jewelry

From birth I could spend every single minute with my kid. I could watch how he started writing. I collected all his early days’ scribbles and I always noticed the development of his drawing skills from just lines and scribbles to drawings which shows facial features. If you check this post you will see one of the early stage drawings of my kid.

Now, his drawings are more developed. Few weeks ago when he was drawing pictures I asked him to draw ‘Amma’ (mommy)

He was drawing his family and relatives. When I asked for a drawing of ‘Amma’ this is what he showed me.

preserving art work on a jewelry

This is my kid’s drawing of ‘Amma’ (Mommy) at his age of 3 yrs 5 months 🙂 This was featured on a Personalized Drawing Necklace from Ninetwofive Jewelry

Does it look like me? Absolutely it is an early stage drawing of my kid. But this drawing is bit different from his other sketches. It doesn’t close. For me it looks like a snail. 🙂  I asked again.

Is this Amma?

He said, yes this is you. This is Amma.

I asked ‘can you draw Amma again’?

He refused. No. This is you. This is your eyes, nose, mouth…He started describing the sketch. I understood that he has drawn this sketch with unique features. This drawing is different from the way he drew other members of family. I understood that he wanted to make my picture special.

So, I decided to preserve this special moment in a personalized pendant with Ninetwofive Jewelry.

Our experience with Ninetwofive Jewelry

Working with Ninetwofive Jewelry was really easy. Once I sent a photo of the drawing with name of my kid, they created this piece of jewelry. Isn’t it so cute? The design is exactly same as the drawing I sent.

Check this necklace design. I am proud to see that my little kid is capable of designing a unique necklace. 🙂 At home he is proud of having his artwork on jewelry. This jewelry could make him excited same as me. He proudly spends his time on creative artwork and as his mommy I enjoy every minute of these moments.

Isn’t this a great way to boost the confidence of any kid other than usual methods? These days as my kid is more on role playing activities and loves to pretend like his teacher or other roles, I found our jewelry designing experience was really helpful for him to expose his creativity!Isn’t it another brain boosting activity with his creativity?

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

Few days ago I received our latest Mixbook photo books. Always it’s a cute surprise to receive by mail. It seems Mixbook has become my favourite photo book company simply because of the easy to use photo book making software, quality of the books, appearance and finally don’t forget the price. From few years I use Mixbook for our photo books and I also saved money by using the Mixbook coupon codes which is sometimes upto 50% off. This time I used a Buy 1 get 1 free offer to order our photo books. So, I received 2 photo books at the same time. Simply it’s a good deal, isn’t it?

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

Although I’ve shared a Mixbook photo book review last year, here is our latest experience with Mixbook. Mother’s day is reaching. If you are looking for a unique gift for your mom, wife, cousin, sister or any friend who is worth appreciating on this Mother’s day, I guess a photo book can be a great idea! And it doesn’t cost much considering the other gift ideas around.

Anyway, here is my review on our latest Mixbook Reviews and experience!

Playgroup memories Photo book for our kid

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

Few months ago I created a photo book for preserving our kid’s playgroup memories. For this photo book I used the  arts and crafts photo book template and customized it using our photos. Although this photo book template shares art and crafts of kids, I used memories and moments from our kid’s playgroup year.

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

This includes photos of his first day to Playgroup, photos with teachers, some of his favourite arts and crafts, celebrations and festival moments from Playgroup and finally the playgroup graduation photos. Completely it is a memory keepsake for playgroup year.

Check Arts and Crafts photo book here.

 

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

I included moments from his playgroup year for the arts and crafts photo book.I used this template.

Year in Review photo book for 2016

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

I created another photo book for our 2016 memories. Last year I ordered a photo book for our 2015 memories. That was so good because we always go through these memories and enjoy precious moments. Inspiring from that experience, I created another photo book for 2016.I really love these photo books. I used this photo book template and customized it with my choices. So beautiful and so cute!

Check the Simple Gold Whimsical photo book template I used and be inspired! 🙂

With this 2 photo books, here is my Mixbook photo book review which may be helpful for you too.

Mixbook Reviews with our Photo Books  (Review 2017)

  • Quality of the books

This time I ordered square shape books of size 8.5*8.5’’ hard cover glossy finish photo books. The pages are thick and quality. Colours of the photo prints are natural and similar to the photos I uploaded. I ordered hardcover glossy finish, so the appearance is different from leather or premium lay flat design. However, although this is not a lay flat photo book, still it is easy to turn pages and use. If you like lay flat designs, you can upgrade your order at the time of completing the order!

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

In these pages I used photos from our visit to Animal Resort Singapore

  • Size of the photo books

Well, this is something that I need to mention. There are different size options which you can select when you create a photo book with Mix book. In my previous year order, I ordered landscape photo book. This time it is square and 8.5*8.5’’ in size. When I compare the sizes and shapes of the books, I really like the recent photo books which are of square shape. These books look better in appearance than our previous landscape book which is also large in size. Anyway, that is up to you to select the best size for you. I may continue with same size even in my future orders too.

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

  • Easy to use photo book making software

Mixbook photo book software is always easy to use. I always start with a photo book template from their photo book collection. But, I customize the photo book including backgrounds, changes for fonts and letter sizes. These are really easy with the photo book software which anyone who is even a beginner can follow. This is one of the reasons for me to continue with creating photo books each year.

Check : How to create a photo book.

Mixbook Reviews with our Latest Photo Books

These are photos from our visit to the Singapore East Coast Park.

  • Price

In this Mixbook photo book review, I can’t stay away from mentioning the price. It is really reasonable comparing with the other photo book companies I worked with. Photo books starts with the rate $15.99 which finally creates a durable photo book than a conventional album. Considering the price of photo albums and costs for printing photos for the album, creating a photo book with Mixbook is really cheaper. And don’t forget, printing photos is something never happen to most of us although we want to print. So, I prefer creating photo books online using the digital files. After spending few hours, it is done!

Check photo books designs starting from $15.99

Little Planet Playland Review & Giveaway

Little Planet Playland is the best place for pretend play activities for kids in Singapore! Yes, I am telling so because I spent time with my kid at this wonderful indoor playground and it is a great place for pretend playing. With soft colours and spacious rooms, the Little Planet Playland is equipped with mainly facilities for 6 pretend play activities. But, you know the behavior of kids. They will create lot of imaginations into the reality when they are surrounded with lot of toys. It was same with us. My kid played happily in these pretend play activities and even he created some of his inventions! This is why pretend playing is important for kids as a brain activity!

Little-Planet-playland-review

About Little Planet Playland

Located at the Centrepoint shopping mall, Little Planet Playland is a wonderful place for kids to engage in imaginary play and pretend play activities. With themed play stations which includes a farm, a market place, a kitchen & cafe, a fishing area, a castle and a forest maze ,Little Planet playland aims to provide the young kids entertaining and educational environment while promoting the safe and hygienic place to play.

Little Planet Playland review

As my kid is so much into pretend playing these days, our visit to the Little Planet Playland was remarkable. Though there are hygiene practices and health checks at the entrance, he couldn’t wait to enter into the playground as he was much excited just by the view of it! Below is our Little Planet Playland review and experience. Hope you love to visit this amazing playland after reading our experiences because we also love to visit there again!

Fishing area

Little Planet Playland review

Although the farm area is located near the entrance, my kid ran into the fishing area. May be it is because fishing is a new experience for him. He loved to try fishing while sitting on the boat.

The fishing area is one of the pretend play stations in Little Planet Playland which provide facilities for fishing. There are lots of sea creatures around the boat which kids can use to catch them using the magnetic fishing rods.

Little Planet Playland review

It’s really interesting. Not only the kids will play with fishing activities, they also will learn names of the sea animals and also the different colours.

Market Area

Little Planet Playland review

This market at the Little Planet Playland is full of vegetables, breads & buns, fish and other groceries which kids can enjoy their time in shopping. There are trolleys for them to collect all the things they buy from the supermarket. It is really fun and I could see most of the kids in the playground enjoyed this activity.

Little Planet Playland review

Farm & soil ground

Little Planet Playland review

Farm is another interesting play station which provides facilities to pretend like harvesting the crops and planting those again. With the provided wheelbarrows and other farm tools kids can easily pretend like a farmer.

Little-Planet-playland-review

Busy farmer!

 

Little Planet Playland review

Next to the farm, there is a soil ground. At first I thought this area is for sand playing. But, it is not sand. This soil ground is with some clean seeds which is helpful for kids to use as the soil medium.

Little Planet playground review

Kitchen & café

Little Planet Playland review

Though my kid is a boy, he loves cooking. Usually he spends time at the pantry area with his own cooking when I prepare our meal. So, the kitchen area is one of the best places for him to play.

The kitchen and café area of the Little Planet Playland is a complete kitchen. It includes pretend play kitchen items such as cookers, oven, sink and also necessary pots, pans and cutlery.

Little-Planet-playland-review

Busy at the kitchen!

Once cooked, kids can enjoy their meal at the café area. Isn’t this a fun activity for little kids?

Castle

Little Planet Playland review

Let your kids to role play like a prince and princess at the castle area. In this play station, you will not only find a castle but also costumes to pretend as royal members! The photo booth is really great to capture a snap of the kids with their royal dresses. But, I am sure instead of posing for a photo, they will sure run around the castle same as my kid did!

Little Planet Playland review

Costumes for kids!

Forest maze

Little Planet Playland review

The forest maze area is really interesting. It is located near the entrance and just before the fishing area. Kids can walk through the forest maze and pick fruits in to baskets. They can even enjoy time with picnic activities. And don’t forget the hide and seek! We loved our experience there. So, I am sure you will!!

Party Room

Little Planet Playland review

Little Planet Playland also includes a party room which you can book for your kid’s party. The party room is clean and neat with decorations. If you like to host your kid’s birthday party at the Little Planet Playland, you can choose one of the party packages!

Our thoughts about Little Planet Playland

We enjoyed our time there. Not only my kid, I also joined with pretend play activities to encourage my kid. It was so much fun. And it was great as I could spend time with my kid with activities he likes. This is a great playground for parents to spend time with kids. Unlike with active playing, you may need to talk, pretend and play with kids when they are role playing or in pretend play activities. Finally, that will improve the bonding time!

While imaginary playing opportunities are there, kids can also spend time actively on ride-on toy vehicles.
  • Nail Salon is one of the interesting things to highlight for my review.
  • And don’t forget the friendly and helpful staff. They offer a really friendly service for the playground visitors.

An Hour Well Spent : Feet Haven Reflexology -Upper Bukit Timah

Having a foot reflexology treatment can be one of the best therapies for any mom who always run after kids and busy with other daily chaos! So, I had such opportunity recently to experience a relaxing foot massage at the Feet Haven Upper Bukit Timah Branch. Well, Feet Haven is not only for moms who run after their kids. 🙂 It is open for anyone who loves to relax and rejuvenate!

Feet Haven Reflexology -Upper Bukit Timah

Feet Haven Reflexology -Upper Bukit Timah

Nestled in a beautiful corner of Upper Bukit Timah, the newest branch of the Feet Haven is the perfect place for relax your body from all sort of aches and pains. Having a body massage or feet reflexology treatment there can make you relax and rejuvenate. As I am a satisfied customer, here is my detailed review on Feet Haven Upper Bukit Timah, so you can visit the place soon!

As always, I like to visit such places because this mommy wants some ‘me time’ too. My hubby is always helpful for me by taking care of the kid, so I have my own time at least few times a month. Although it is easy to hire a taxi, I selected to walk after alighting at Beauty World MRT. But, if you chose to walk, it is better to prepare with the directions. From the Beauty World MRT, you need to walk towards the Bukit Timah Plaza. Then walk along the Off Rifle Range Road. It is easy to find the place once you are in Off Rifle Range Road.

They even asked me about having a drink, though I didn’t want at that time.

Having Foot Reflexology Treatment at Feet Haven

After spending few minutes talking with the team at Feet Haven, I was sent to the treatment area. Earlier I was offered a complete full body massage. However, I preferred to experience foot massage. I am always with painful feet at night times, so I asked them for foot reflexology treatment as it may benefit me.

I also requested a female therapist. All these were arranged as per my choices. My treatment started after soaking my feet in warm water.It was perfect to relax my tired feet.

Finally the therapist started feet massage. She is a nice experienced lady who also shared some tips and advices with me on taking care of myself. She didn’t waste any second during the treatment period. Although she asked me to relax and have a nap, I spent time experiencing every bit of the treatment. Foot reflexology treatment was not uncomfortable. There were times I experienced the sensations of pressure points. It’s an hour well spent. While having the foot massage at Feet Haven, I also experienced the calm music. Don’t forget the aroma inside the treatment rooms. Finally, it is a place to treat your body and mind with five sensations. The flower tea I received after the treatment was perfect to make me warm and relax!

As my recent experience with products received from Babybuys.com.sg is really awesome, I want to share this review post together with individual reviews of the products I received with you all.

Parenting is not so easy as there are many milestones to pass. From the day the infant is born, there are lot of responsibilities including feeding, diapering and of course raising them healthy and happy. What about travelling? Even If you don’t want to travel overseas trips, you still need to prepare for hospital visits and other small trips such as grocery shopping. Throughout this journey, we need many products. This is where online shops are really helpful for parents to find the necessities in just few clicks.

Fed-Fun Eating Devices (Sporkstix) Review

As the name suggests, this is a really fun eating device. Do you notice that it is a combination of spoon, fork and chopsticks? This sporkstix is great for kids to eat alone. Instead of handling both fork and spoon or fork with chopsticks, they can start with sporkstix!

Fed-Fun Eating Devices (Sporkstix) review

Mommy, you also don’t have to wash so many items after the feeding time. It is common that most of the kids drop the spoon or fork while eating. But this sporkstix is really fun and interesting to use.

Fed-Fun Eating Devices (Sporkstix) review

My kid spent time trying to use it as a fork, spoon or as chopstick. It seems meal time is interesting for him with new experiments with food.

Siliskin Silicone Straw Cup review

This Siliskin Silicone Straw cup is really awesome for kids simply because of the unique features it has. How many times you clean the floor when your kid spills water or any drink on the floor? Switching from the feeding bottle to Sippy cup needs lot of patience and care. Sometimes it is a total mess. Then, next transition is introducing the normal cups for drinking.

LOL Playland – Indoor Playground @JCube, Jurong East (#Review + Giveaway)

Visit to the LOL Playland is our latest adventure! Located at the JCube shopping mall, Singapore; this LOL Playland is a dream for any active kid who loves to engage in both active play and pretend play activities. These days I visit many Singapore indoor playgrounds with my kid because I know the importance of actively engaging in play activities for the kids. So, here is my share with you because I know that parents around this blog are keen on raising active and happy kids!

Bit of Background Story of LOL Playland

LOL Playland is not just another typical indoor playground in Singapore. It is a dream of another mom who wished to have an indoor playground in Singapore West area which has facilities for both active play and pretend play activities. With proper planning and efforts, finally the LOL Playland is born with both active play and pretend play facilities for kids.

As LOL Playland is with many activities for kids of all ages, I think it is better to write my review post based on activities which kids can involve inside the playground.

Toddler’s House

LOL Playland-Singapore-review

Toddler’s house includes both active play and pretend play facilities for young kids.

The name says it all. The Toddler house is designed for toddlers. But my son who is nearly 3.5 years old now spent most of his time inside the toddler house and engaged with many activities.

Toddler house is in pretty decent size and allow facilities for young kids to play both pretend play and active play. The first floor area is full of toys which are especially suitable for kids to engage in imaginary play activities. Some of the activities include shopping, selling ice-cream and cooking. There are also activity boards which toddlers can spend time on activities such as solving maze.

Our Review of LOL Playland, Jurong East

LOL Playland Jurong East-Review

So far, I’ve visited different indoor playgrounds in Singapore with my kid. Some playgrounds such as Pororo Park are large in Size. Other playgrounds such as My Little Giant are with other entertaining activities for kids.

However, LOL Playland is decent in size, pretty decent in look and neatly arranged with facilities for all kids of different age groups. As there is a separate Toddler house, parents do not have to worry about their toddlers playing with active and grown up kids.(I mean the place is safe for young toddlers too)

Role playing activities are the best admirable activities for me as these days my kid shows more interest on pretend playing activities. All these activities are really worth for the entrance fee we have to pay.

If you consider raising happy and healthy kids,I am sure you love to visit such playgrounds with your kids to allow them to play till they get tired!

Breastmilk Jewelry from Keepsake by Ryo

My breastfeeding journey is more than 2 years long. I am happy that I could exclusively breastfeed my kid for his first 6 months. After that he was introduced for solids, however I continued breastfeeding.

When my kid was 2 years old, it was time to stop breastfeeding completely. But, do you know what happened? I started feeling sad. It was like I was going to miss something which I was used to. I worried about missing our bonding time. I worried about my kid who doesn’t want my milk anymore. I know this is same for most of the breastfeeding moms. I used to same routine of spending bonding time with my kid while breastfeeding him for more than 2 years and now it is time to stop. I had to accept the fact that he is a grown up child now.

With such mix of feelings, I just spent time over internet and found about breast milk jewelries. Yes, this first time mom didn’t know about such thing in this world! That’s the first time I found about breastfeeding keepsakes. So that’s my story about finding this concept of breast milk keepsakes .I was over the moon and I wanted to own a breast milk keepsake in order to keep my best memories of breastfeeding journey.

Breastmilk Keepsakes by Keepsake by Ryo

Keepsake by Ryo is an online shop which creates keepsake jewelries from breastmilk, baby’s hair & cord. If you check her creative jewelries you will know how these tiny hair pieces of baby hair and breast milk can convert into beautiful jewelry which creates best   keepsakes!

Well, finally I am an owner of beautiful breastmilk jewelry and here is my review and memories of working with Keepsake by Ryo!

 

How to Create Breastmilk keepsakes with Keepsake by Ryo?

Making breastmilk jewelry is not just 1 day or few days process. It needs few weeks, patience and concern. Here are the steps I went through during creating this beautiful breastmilk jewelry with Keepsake by Ryo. Although it took some time (few weeks),finally I have a piece of keepsake which can renew my memories of breastfeeding.

Step 1

Once you place the order with Keepsake by Ryo, you need to send inclusions for the selected piece of jewelry. In my case, I selected a design that only needs breast milk.

It’s time to pump some breastmilk

Now it is time to pump breastmilk. You know, I was almost breastfed for 2 years and started weaning. Even I used no more milk tea to stop my supply. Now, I want few drops to create breastmilk jewelry. For me I found I was really low in supply, so I had to wait for few days till I pump the required amount of breast milk.

keepsake by Ryo-review

The so precious sample of breastmilk for the breastmilk keepsake

 

Tip: Don’t throw your expired breast milk in the freezer. You can use that milk for your keepsakes. Actually I threw some packets of pumped breastmilk which was in my fridge just few days before I found about these keepsakes. Otherwise I could have used that milk for the jewelries.

Step 2

Send (by Post) the breastmilk and inclusions to Keepsake by Ryo. Address and more details are on their website.

Step 3

Wait! 🙂

Yes, you need to understand that making a breastmilk keepsake need few weeks. So, you have to wait for few weeks. Anyway, don’t worry you will get the email updates from the Keepsake by Ryo once they receive the inclusions and once they post the completed jewelry. I received the same updates!

Step 4

Admire the breastmilk jewelry keepsake that you receive.Yes,I love the jewelry keepsake I received.It is really beautiful and so precious.This breast milk jewelry keepsake reminds me all the good and hard time I underwent while breastfeeding.It can make me cry.It can make me smile and it can make me hopeful too.I hope my kid will grow very well with all benefits of breastmilk he received exclusively for the first 6 months and after that for entire 2 years!

Review of Breastmilk Jewelry from Keepsake by Ryo

Well,I don’t have any negative comments.I spent more days for sending breastmilk as I didn’t have enough supply.So,I understand that affects the product making.I expect from the beginning for little bit yellowish breastmilk inclusions as I sent the last few drops of my milk supply.I also understand that colour of breast milk is different from one to another.So,overall my experience is smooth and I am happy to own this keepsake.

If you are a breastfeeding mom,don’t lose the chance of creating a beautiful breastmilk keepsake.Remember you cannot make it once you wean.Check  www.keepsakebyryo.com for more details on how you can create your own precious keepsake!

 

Disclosure: I received this breastmilk keepsake for free.However that doesn’t affect my true opinions regarding this review.

Entertainment at Toddler Town,Phnom Penh,Cambodia

Yes, the name Toddler Town suggests what it is. Toddler Town is one of the kids friendly attractions in Kids City Asia, Phnom Penh which we visited during our last month holiday. Our Cambodia trip was really good and exciting together with kids friendly entertainment activities we participated in our visit to Kids City Asia.

If you follow this blog you know that we love to visit indoor playgrounds with our kid.He simply loves being active among the colourful play area.However,after our visits to the Pororo Park and My Little Giant in Singapore,we couldn’t visit any indoor playgrounds simply because we spent few months in a Sri Lanka holiday.

Toddler Town is specifically for the kids who are under 4 years old in age. With colourful play equipment and fun fill activities, it is a paradise for toddlers to spend time without getting bored. Our kid was really happy to spend time among the slides, ball pool and other activities forgetting the entire world.
