All About Natural Parenting : Growing Up Together, Naturally with Friso Gold Campaign

Salam and Hi lovelies!

In this post, I'd love to share with you guys about natural parenting,
which if you guys had followed me on my Instagram, you might
knew that I've been collaborating with Friso Gold Malaysia for
a while now throughout this Growing Up Together, Naturally campaign
and been carried out their Natural Parenting Challenge activities as well.



To be honest, I always try my best in order to practice this natural
parenting way throughout my parenting moment even before the
collaboration. That is because I do believe that natural parenting
is the best approach while growing up together with my kids.

Indeed there are lots to learn yet I'm thankful that Friso Gold Malaysia
seems to be taken the same journey and better yet they are generous
enough to share lots of amazing infos, useful tips, great ideas for
various activities and everything regarding this natural parenting
journey that we as parents and even aunties or uncles can access
and follow from there too.


Hence, here I am, as I think that perhaps you guys had missed that
so it'll be great to write some for you, sharing what I learnt and
whatnot, right? Okay let's start with what I learnt from Charis Wong,
a Counselling Psychologist that believes in the power of the
Natural Parenting, notes in courtesy from Friso Gold Malaysia.

WHAT IS NATURAL PARENTING? 

Alright basically, natural parenting is the lifestyle that the parents have
with their children, involving joint engagement along with mutual
love and respects towards each other. As a parent, we learnt to
respond sensitively to our child's need yet at the same time, being
spontaneous and go with the flow. In the unique parent - child relationship,
both parents and child are believed that each experiences the growth together.

There are 3 key points of Natural Parenting, which are :-

1) Both mom / parent and child learn and grow up together through shared experiences

This is a 2 way process which will make both mom and child feel special besides building
positive memories together through such experiences. Usually this happens during spending
quality time together, where both enjoying each other's company and engaging in
meaningful interactions together, having unique love and affection towards one another.

As for the child, with the mom's reassuring presence around them as a safe base
and also shows encouragement for them to explore and learn more, they begin to discover
more about themselves, their world, and mastering the key development tasks as well.
Hence they'll be more independent as well as with their natural instinct to experiment
and learn from experiences by interacting with their environment.

A mom grows from this as she learns when is to provide the support for her child
to safely and productively explore and learn, and when is to let go and allow them
to be more independent. Of course, the mom will offer her support but she'll gradually
withdraw it too when she sees that her child is ready to explore independently.
For example, you can see this challenge activity HERE which I can say one of the best
example in totally defined that.


Besides that, instead of just be an observer, the mom is open to learn and explore
new experiences together with her child, not mind if it'll get dirty or appear like doesn't
make sense, as she's willing to see the world from her child's perspective as well, hence
validate her child's strengths as well as inspiring their uniqueness in their life. For example,
you can refer to this challenge activity HERE okay.




2) Free and spontaneous play experiences

It's true that play is a natural medium of expression for children. Furthermore, those
free and unstructured play can encourage spontaneous expression and exploration of
the child's world. It's real simple to do as well, which often just opt for easily available
play materials that can be used to encourage the unstructured play. For example,
in this challenge activity HERE where my children use what's around them like the
cardboard, paper plate, colour, toys, etc in order to make and then play with the
Cardboard City as they imagined. Feel free to watch my video below :




In unstructured play, the mom remains engaged throughout the process, being genuinely
interested in whatever the child chooses to do during the play time. When the child plays
freely and without direction, he / she is able to fully express and explore his / her thoughts,
feeling, experiences, and actions too, which in addition, able to express creatively from that
as well. That is because, unstructured play can creates decision making opportunities,
which in turn promotes independence, self responsibility and competency in the child.
Sensitive to the child's need, the mom should always asking "What does my child need
right now?" instead of "What do I need my child to do right now?" as she should be flexible
and patient with the pace of her child's exploration, including the mistakes that the child
might make during the process.


3) Engagement in outdoor activities and interaction with nature elements as well


Did you know that a natural and convenient way to increase children's physical activity
is by doing an unstructured outside play? Being outdoors provides children with such
hands on, active engagement, and experiential learning opportunities.
Indeed, when children being engage with their natural surroundings, they are given the
opportunity to make decisions, think creatively and solving problem. Besides that, it's
also allows children to build social skills, acquire new motor skills and develop empathy
as well when they interact with nature, other kids or people around, and also other living
creatures which also led to learning to preserve and conserve the natural world.

Research had indicated that an active, experiential involvement in outdoor environment
is exciting and emotionally engaging for children, and results in deeper and more
effective learning. As when moms learn to go with the flow allowing their children to
discover new experiences, the children can meet more spontaneous, unplanned experiences
opportunities in a natural outdoor environment.


This is one of the outdoor activities example that you can try based from the Natural Parenting
Challenge Activity that I've done with my children yea, feel free to see it HERE.

Planning A Getaway During Haze : First Thing To Look Up

Salam and Hi lovelies!

True indeed, I bet everyone here need an escape from
this haze, right? I know, not all of us can afford to
escape up to Europe or America etc, hence, let’s
see this latest index first in order to choose where to go
or accurately, where we can and good to go.

Credit Google 

Tbh, me and my family did just talk about going
somewhere but my husband said better be just nearby
within weekend only, like a 2 day and 1 night simple stay.
So that choices narrowed to Southern Region Peninsular area,
like Malacca or so right. But unfortunately upon checking
the API index, seems like Southern Region area not really are such
a good choice right now, being the index are already within
unhealthy to very unhealthy now.
As you guys can see below are the close up view of the index.



Seems like Malacca & Johor got unhealthy 
(marked red) index already

Being a mom, of course, kids are my priority hence always
wanna find what’s best for them. Same as when we wanted to go
somewhere, we gotta pick the best place that suits them too.
Especially in this haze situation, of course I’ll check the index
first only because thinking of my babies, since I’m not
really worried about me during this haze. Well now, I guess we
gotta find other place to escape then since Malacca seems
not good to go, right?

General guide regarding the PSI, credit to 
National Environment Agency

Not sure if we can, to go further than southern region area right now
since this is not exactly such priority expenses that we've planned, as
we actually had saved up for our Bandung trip next year being the priority.
Furthermore, 2 days seems like too short if we wanna go far or up north region,
hence it kinda makes me feels like not really worth the expenses
that gonna be made, you know. Hmm yeah idk just feels torn to decide about it haha.

So yeah, I don’t know if we can actually proceed for this mini escape now.
Kinda bummed since we are living in the Southern region now, yet
Seremban seems still okay, but yes kinda suffocate each day too, you know.
Well I guess I’d rather stay at home than going to those mark as not
good air area, right? Indeed as for this escape plan, I guess I’ll just rolling,
going with the flow then and let's see how it goes later.
Below I add up more info & tips as guide regarding this haze :



Anyway, for you guys out there, feel free to check these index first
upon planning your getaway trip, besides drinks lots of water, put on
the right mask and whatnot, okayy. Stay safe and may you guys have a great
week ahead as well. Thanks for stopping by!





Most Amazing Thing that happened at #NYFW : The Talk

Salam and Hi Lovelies!

Alright as we all know, we’re in the middle of #NYFW2019
at the moment yeah and of course, for all fashion lovers
around the world must have followed this event closely,
spotting their favourite designers and collections and all.

So upon that, one had definitely grab my attention which is
#NYFW : The Talk, a 30 minutes - ish talk show brought by
NYFW 2019 with BMW USA and IMG Models hosted by my
favourite (I guess I can say Idol, hehe) Noor, and my another
favourite (Idol too!hehee), Halima, attended as well.
I gotta say that this talk just filled me in with this love
and motivation, as indeed they’re talking about the reality,
what’s happening and what’s the change right now especially
in fashion / entertainment / marketing industry upon Muslim Hijabis,
which is from their point of view and experience in the field as well.

If you happened to not know who are these two women,
I must say that they’re such a great, strong, filled with inspiration
kind of woman or as per say, ‘hijabae’, hehe. They’re among the women
whom I always love looking forward to as I find motivation in what they
do, and I do love and honestly share the passion in their fields as well.
Noor, being a journalist (or activist as they see her) and Halima, a model
and already started her own brand now as well. You guys can check out their
Instagram as below for more yea.




Okayy back to the talk, I love what they’re both had shared in there, and the live
hijab tutorials definitely are refreshing to see, really haha!
I agreed and proud of them as they’ve stepping forward and keep on moving.
It’s really are not easy but I love too, how now we can already see the improvisation
around, like having hijabis in the runway, in front page, successfully making the way
up and all. I love when Halima shared her experience during modelling, working
with stylist which at that moment haven’t work with any hijabis before yet they turns out
to loves it as they can be more creative in channeling their talent.
Well it’s really are great to see and heard about those, you know, and somehow Neelofa
and Vivy Yusof happened to pop up in my mind as I can see that they’re representing
the same, yet from Malaysia like me hehe.

 “You shouldn’t change yourselves, but change the game”

One of the mantra that you can get upon watching this talk. Anyway, I’ve included
the talk’s video as below yea since I really think you should watch and listen
to everything that they gotta say yourselves, as it’s such a great share as well.
Enjoy!


Soooo inspiring, right! Well I hope my sharing here will be beneficial
to you all. It definitely are inspiring me and perhaps if you happened to
dream to be in their places too, perhaps there’s some input for you too in
their talk here, right?
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead!

❤️

Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Review

Salam and Hi lovelies!

About a month ago, I took up the Eucerin's challenge -
trying their new Ultra White Spotless skincare
range which they stated that we don't need to only
undergo laser treatment in order to diminishes those
dark spots / pigmentations / freckles etc in order to achieve
fairer and flawless skin.

Truthfully, I do have those skin problems for like forever now
and of course I even have thought about laser treatment
but yup still not going since apart from the high price for
the laser treatment, I am still considering it's pros and cons.
Until one day, I came across Eucerin's posts about these
Ultra White Spotless range and kinda attracted to those
#diminishdarkspotswithoutlaser line haha. Hence, here I am,
trying the range for about a month now and would love to share
my results and review with you guys.


Alright so, I got four items from this range which I added up
into my basic skincare routine. The items are as follows :

1) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Day SPF30 Fluid
2) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Night Fluid
3) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Double Booster Serum
4) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Spot Corrector

FYI, these Eucerin Ultra White Spotless range contains THIAMIDOL,
their patented whitening ingredients that said to be 10 times more
powerful in fighting dark spots without laser, by inhibit melanin
production and prevent pigmentation.
These range are also said to be gentle on skin along with proven
good clinical and dermatological studies and each one of them
are made in Germany. Well, let's see how it goes next yeah hehee.

1) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Day SPF30 Fluid

Price : RM139 (50ml)

I use this moisturizing cream on the day time daily along with their
double booster serum. I love that it have SPF30 as sun protection
and also act to reduce dark spots and prevent them from reappearing.
Upon application, I learned that I only need tiny bit of it for my whole
face or it will make my face oilier as I have combination oily type of skin.
Hence, just a little is enough for me. It does feels moisturizing, no irritation
upon applying and overall I think it's good and comfy to wear all day.

2) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Night Fluid

Price : RM159 (50ml)

Aside from Thiamidol, this night cream stated that it's also contains
Dexpanthenol - which is an active ingredient known to support skin
regeneration overnight, thus making skin appears even and radiant.
Truthfully, it feels a lot like their day cream upon applying and wearing it.
I only need a tiny amount for this one too, and it does feels moisturizing as well.
No irritation upon application as well.

3) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Double Booster Serum 

Price : RM199 (30ml)

Alright this one is actually my favourite among all four items. I always
love using serum and open to try any great serum, and I think this one is
good to go too. This double booster serum brings together two serums
that works in different way, which are aside from the Thiamidol, it
contains Concentrated Hyaluronic Acid - which is as we all know it's
one of the skin's most effective moisturizing substances that help skin to
attract and retain moisture. Upon applying, it's feels light and non greasy,
I also love how it absorbs nicely into my skin. No irritation and whatnot as
well upon using this serum. Since it only need to be use once a day, I usually
use it upon daytime with their day cream. I think it's such a great pair and does
helps in reducing my dark spots and brighten my skin tone too.

4) Eucerin Ultra White Spotless Spot Corrector

Price : RM109 (5ml)

Okay here's another one of my favourite, since I think it's really convenient
and I can see that it works too in reducing the dark spots while pairing it with
all Eucerin Ultra White Spotless range. I use this Spot Corrector at night after
applying the night cream, since it does need to be use once a day. I love how
precise and easy to apply this corrector are because it comes with an applicator as well.
Besides that, this corrector is non greasy and it doesn't irritate my skin as well upon
applying, so yes it's good. It might feels a bit minty (not sting, just that cold feeling, like
when you run some ice over your face, but it's less colder than ice, yeah, you know haha)
upon applied but just briefly. Later on you just get used to it as it's kinda nothing, really.
Overall, yes I love using this Spot Corrector as well.


Below are my 'Before' and 'After' upon using this Eucerin Ultra White Spotless range.
No makeup at all, not even powder. Just lipstick and eyebrows okay guys.
Do note that there might be some slight changes because of the lighting but there
are no editing at all too. You can focus on my dark spots there for before started
using this Eucerin Ultra White Spotless range and until after a month using, which
I stated there as 'After' okay guys.




So basically and as you can see, this Eucerin Ultra White Spotless range does help me
in reducing my dark spots and all, aside from making my face fairer, with more even skin
tone, right?! I do feel okay and indeed satisfied using this range since I can see the results
over time, yes to be honest kinda impress with this improvement on my skin especially how
good they are at reducing my dark spots, yet I'm not sure if by using all four of this range is
too much for my skin (since I use organic and all natural basic skincare items for years now
before adding them to my routine, the only non organic item in my skincare routine are my
acnes care items and some masks etc) hence triggered more acnes over time while using it.
I rarely have acnes and usually when it came, I can get rid of it easily but now it kinda
stays a bit longer and got more than usual.

So yeah that's my only concern upon trying and using this range, but it might or not be the
cause, right, as I'm not sure of it myself. All I can say is, indeed I'm happy to try as I can see
the results over time, but perhaps I might slowing down a little for now, like maybe now I'll
try to continue with only two items at time, and let's see how the acnes doing, you know.


Overall, yes, if you're interested to try, I do think you should and let's see how it goes
yourselves as we might get various results. Perhaps yours will works wonderfully
without the acnes thingy, right? Feel free to check out more details of this products
on their sites as I listed for you guys below yea. You can also purchase them at Eucerin
Official Store at Lazada aside from finding them at the nearest pharmacies like
Guardian or Watsons around okayy.

Well, I guess that's all for my sharing about this range today. I do hope that my sharing
here is somehow can be helpful to you all especially those whom into this range,
considering and all, right. Thank you for stopping by and may you guys will have
such a great day ahead!
