Thank you D!

D & I @ antenatal class

In this journey, though I may seem like the center of attraction because of my growing bump, but daddy D has been working hard too.

He tries to bring me to and from work everyday. He is my butler at home. He gets food for me when I’m hungry. He eats when I eat, just to accompany me and ignore all comments that he had gain weight. He carries all the stuff we have when we are outside including my handbag (whether it looks good on him) and even if he doesn’t have hands for any. He handles all liaison works with the interior designer and developer to avoid giving me more frustration than the rash I have. He reads to baby D every night even when I’m sound asleep. He attends every antenatal class with me and is with me whenever we are shopping for baby D. He now reads on parenting to prepare himself and gives me a summary of them knowing that I am a lazy reader.

He is truely amazing.

Thank you D for your ever constant care, concern and love for me. I won’t be able to do all these without you. I am happy to be able to do this with you. Love you! <5pf>

New Year & Resolution!

31 Dec

What a year it has been for me and D. First it was the fabulous wedding and then we are ending the year with us being excited with our new role as parents.

I am into my 2nd trimester now and things has been looking great so far. The nausea frequency is lower. Appetite is better. I can finally head to the malls but definitely not in the same usual shopping pace as before.

My new year’s resolution for 2012 is simple, that the little one be safe and healthy. We are so looking forward to see you!

And here is me in 14 weeks. Happy New Year everyone!! May it be a great one for you as it is for us! <5pf>

5pf’s : Brand New Clarisonic & Normal Dual Brush Heads for Sale

15 May

I just got myself a set of clarisonic. After a trial test at Sephora Singapore on the Clarisonic Plus and reading my girlfriend’s blog on Clarisonic Mia, I was sold into getting one for myself to prepare for the big day. You can read more about clarisonic at their site.

But just very briefly, to give you an idea what Clarisonic all about, it uses  sonic technology to deeply yet gently clear pores. With its patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second,  it is supposed to thoroughly remove 6 times more makeup and 2 times more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone. It works quite  similar to the electronic toothbrush we commonly see.

I have been using Clarisonic for a month now and I am excited to see improvements in my skin. If you are interested in getting one for yourself, please let me know as I have one brand new set of Clarisonic Mia together with the Normal Dual Brush Heads for sale.

The Clarisonic Mia set includes the following :-

  • Cordless Clarisonic Mia
  • Compact pLink® International Charger
  • Sensitive Brush Head
  • 1 oz. trial size Gentle Hydro Cleanse

The Normal Dual Brush Heads includes the following :-

  • 2 normal brush heads

This is open for those in Singapore only and on a first come first serve basis. Since Clarisonic no longer ships to Singapore, this is quite a steal. You can email us at ThingsWeLoveSeeAndDoTogether@gmailDOTcom if you are interested. <5pf>

5pf’s : Evening Gown

24 Apr

My friends collected their gowns today. I think they make good designers as the designs came out close to what they wanted but I can’t speak the same on the workmanship though.  But I know the girls can carry them with their stylish accessorizing!!

My friend,  J, had wanted some frills for her gown but either the tailor didn’t get it or has zero designer juice in her, she tagged a ribbon loosely just below the toga shoulder. I was glad she didn’t sew it down tightly or I wouldn’t be able to do the frills for J. I took the gown home and started figuring  out  how I could make  the ribbon look nicer.  After an hour of fiddling, bugging D for opinions, pin tagging the design, I finally got this. I hope J don’t mind me trying on her gown as I wanted to (and needed to) make sure I got the positioning done right for the frills. So here is my very first sewing/design since a zillions years and I realise, I miss sewing and all that art and crafts I did in school.

Hey J, I hope you like it. <5pf>

5pf’s : I was inspired …

22 Mar

… by this picture of Sarah Jessica Parker in her perfume ad, Lovely. Why? Well, I could not decide if I should get a necklace  (pearls, gold, vintage or a mix) to match my gowns, but when I saw this picture over the weekend at Trixilini, I decided to go with my instinct to go without. And that’s when I decided to get the earrings and ring from Trixilini.  Less is more right?

So for all the SATC serials and movies I’ve watched, it’s all worth it! Thanks for the tip SJP! <5pf>

5pf’s : Soles

24 Feb

It peeves me to see people in nice, lovely shoes with a sole like this. Worse, with the price tag stuck below. Good grief, why can’t they take some time to remove the unsightly patch?

There are many ways to do it . Some put baby oil on the price tag or sticky residue,  let it rest for a few minutes and it comes out pretty easily after that. Some use nail polish remover and there are even others I read who use peanut butter (apparently the oil in the peanut butter helps, but food on the shoe sole??)!!

So c’mon, for the money you spent on the pair of shoes, do yourself and the shoes a favour; keep the soles nice and clean, at least before you start wearing and strutting down the streets in it! <5pf>

5pf’s : Light-Cotton Scallop Front Half-Button Top

21 Dec

Shoulder-to-shoulder : 34 cm ; Chest : 45 cm ; Length : 56cm

wooo…love the buttons!!

Subtle Details on Sleeves

The material is really soft and at no expense from the design and detailing. I got one for myself and because it’s a worthy buy,  we got this crazy idea to get 2 more pieces so that we can share it with you.  Drop us a note if you are interested. It’s going for $25 each, inclusive of mailing charges.

Seriously, great with a skinny jeans or black pants for a chic-look. And best of all, you can’t get it from anywhere else (errmm..at least in singapore)! Cheerios!

Update : We are only left with 1 piece! <5pf>

5pf’s

21 Dec

5pf’s is a personal initiative I suddenly feel like doing.

Coming up here at Femme & Homme, you’ll soon be reading alot more about my views  and ideas on things I see and do (all this while, D is my only audience) and of cos things I want to share with you.  I always wish ideas I have could be brought alive! Do you sometimes feel the same? So since for me, that dream to make things alive is still far far away, it’ll be nice to at least have them in words first. And if you  have anything to share (i still wonder if there is even anyone following this blog?),  I would love to hear from you too.

What’s my dream? As D said, he’d probably observed through my interests – a 5pf Studio (through my eyes) and a 5pf Guide (the dos and don’ts to any and everything).

How appropriate this entry came with 2 more weeks to 2011. As kermit sings “… someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection… the lovers, the dreamers and me…”. May your dreams come true. <5pf>
