My cup runneth over <br /> Founder, @collatethelabel @oursecondnature<br /> Fertility support #purposeineachseason

It s almost Liberty, hang in there.   Here are some of my top picks from the last but favourite of our Liberty series, launching tomorrow. Had to narrow it down to ten but there are so many ways to style these pieces. Looking forward to wearing  em out soon! Which would you pick?

Blessed Easter! We put on our Sunday best and found a quiet spot in the estate for a dose of Vitamin D (see how pasty I ve become) and a quick Easter Egg hunt.  

It s days like these I wish Ellery has a sibling to love & play with. Even though fertility treatments have been put on hold for now, I count my blessings to have a little family, a roof over our heads, and food in our cabinets. And most of all, a Father who loves us immeasurably.

Still trying my best to adapt to the new norm. Aside from journaling and having good coffee, getting dressed has really helped keep me motivated & productive these days. And of course more presentable on Zoom.  

Not sure if this is helpful but here is my week s worth of WFH outfits! They are a combination of my favourite pieces from our Liberty collection launching tomorrow, styled in different ways. Hope this gives you some inspiration to dress up and show up for yourself.

Would love to hear what s been keeping you going, or the small things that s been helping you through this time. #inthistogether

These days I ve been feeling a little inadequate in my role as a mom. The emotions have been lingering for a while now, and has gotten more apparent when Ellery had a little incident that led to her being hospitalised. She is well, but momma s heart needs a bit of mending.

Ellery looks to her yaya (our helper & her primary caretaker) for all her needs, even emotional ones. I know what I feel is not jealousy   yaya has a heart full of love for Ellery and we can t ask for a better caretaker. I can t say for sure that it is guilt either, because I know my family and I ultimately benefit from me having a career outside of home.

Perhaps it is self-doubt; fear that I m falling short in this mothering gig. I m constantly questioning if I ve got my priorities with work and home right, and if there ll ever be a point in my life I d look back in regret for not spending enough time with Ellery.

Motherhood is hard, and the struggles that come with being a working mom is inevitable. We all do our best. It s not easy and it takes effort, but I remind myself that instead of always trying to measure up, perhaps my best is enough.

I love you and miss you more than you ll ever know, baby girl.

In crisp cotton all weekend.   We hear that our non-printed OSN pieces are underrated   I think so too.       Wearing cotton wrap top & asymmetrical cotton skirt, Ellery in OMN s gathered v-back jumpsuit.

I can t believe half the year has passed! June s been a tough month with back to back work trips and time away from family. Had a big scare too when E developed a viral rash while I was away. Despite it all, this little one is becoming more sensible and acquiescent. I m counting my blessings and looking forward to what s ahead in the second half of the year.

We believe in raising resilient kids.  Fred and I believe that if we raise Ellery and our future children to be resilient, they will be braver, more curious and adaptable, more equipped to take on challenges, and more able to fulfil their purpose in this world. We ve spent a good number of months searching for the right schools and community that share in our belief.

This is why we re excited to be part of @trehausco s community, where families with likeminded values come together to work, learn and play. Their new space in @funansg opens soon with a conducive co-working space for parents, a preschool that focuses on building character and raising resilient, kind, empathetic and future-ready children, and a fun family club on weekends.

Raising kids does take a village. So grateful for moms like @elaine_kim & @tjinlee who are ahead of change and fearless in putting their beliefs into action with @trehausco.    #TrehausCo #WorkLearnPlay

Last weekend at @montigoresorts where we invested in each other s lives at @hnworthwomen s inaugural retreat, and returned with growth, strength, and most of all camaraderie. 
So much good (and fun) happens when women come together to support each other. Thank you @wyleneyap @occ_asher @lenysuparman for being our enablers.
