Lipstick, mismatch and a whole waste of time and money.

What would you do when you finally decided to try something new, and when you did, it was all wrong for you?

I tried the nude lipstick. Of course it went downhill.

Enter the Letdown: Revlon ColorBurst in Soft Nude.

-- I didn't even take this picture because I was too disappointed to go near it ever again.

It looks beautiful, but it's just all sorts of wrong when it's on me.

Bringing home baby and bringing up baby - Part 1.

During my pregnancy, J and I had many discussions on how we are going to take care of the baby once he arrives. We both live away from family, and J still goes to sea so it is tricky for us as a new family.

We thought about infant care centres but I just feel so guilty and sad for our baby. Just barely 4 months old (that's how long maternity leave goes if I take everything at one go) and shipped off to daycare while J and I return to work. The thought of placing him in the care of complete strangers just doesn't sit well with us.

Since we ruled out infant care centres completely, some friends actually suggested that we leave the baby with my parents, who live in another country, while I rejoin the workforce. I bit my tongue at the idea, because what's the point of having a baby if we are going to send it to another country and only see him on the weekends for a few hours? J and I deeply oppose this suggestion as well.

The only other option we had was to hire a helper/nanny.
