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

Not sure if it s because I m nursing a bad whiplash from a car accident earlier this week or that I ve been on the move too much, but I m starting to really feel the strain of this pregnancy. I guess they don t say you feel less human and more like a whale for nothing! How much bigger does this get by the way? Am also really anxious now that I m 32 weeks in and have done absolutely nothing to prepare for baby s arrival  cept for an antenatal course which wasn t quite at all helpful. Plus there's so much more work left to be done I suspect I might run the risk of a pre-term labour at this pace.. Gah, totally freaking out now but I guess I can only rely on His strength to see me through the rest of this!    #32weekspregnant

points when you find a dress that lets you feel non-preggers, even if it's only from the front (swipe right for reality lol). Wasn't quite intentional but am so glad our new collection has maternity-friendly options! #32weekspregnant #collatethelabel

So many of you have asked so I thought I should share that yes I founded @oursecondnature just shy of a year ago, with our head creative @xxlaurentan who co-conceptualised the brand, and our team at @collatethelabel. It's hard to concise & share the full story behind founding OSN, but in short, it is the culmination of all the struggles and lessons learnt in both my personal & professional lives. It is also built on the takeaways from being in the fashion industry for more than a decade now, founding & running Love, Bonito and then Collate.
.
While Collate has established and continues to build our tribe of modern & sophisticated women who takes to our clean and chic aesthetic, Our Second Nature hopes to inspire daily lives with instinctive & personal every day wear. We want to convey wholehearted living- the highs and lows of it all- through the stories behind our prints and considered designs. Our inspiration comes from all the things tangible & intangible- a good read, the smell of coffee, the love for fresh linen- all the small delights that make our life ours. Our trademarks, our quirks, our second nature.
.
It is my desire that with the creation of these brands, our group will be able to better cater to the diverse communities of women. Cos one thing's for sure, we aren t cookie-cutters nor one-size-fit-alls. Let me know if you like what you see so far! Oh and our team will be at Boutiques Fair till 4pm today if you'd like to come by and experience the brand!

Just a couple of days ago resting them swollen ankles by the river Seine, with the perfect 10 degree weather & a very pretty view to boot. Those third trimester symptoms are getting real now, trying my best to embrace all that's coming my way   #29weekspregnant

Though the road to conceiving wasn t easy, I m really thankful the pregnancy s been good to me so far   I ve been reading up on about brain development lately (tiger mum alert lol), and studies have shown that 20% of a person s brain is developed in the womb, 80% before we turn 3 years old. This really changed my perspective on prenatal nutrition esp my intake of DHA, choline & folic acid, which S-26 MAMA is in abundance of. Am so glad to know that the lil one is developing well and that the massive movements I ve been feeling is all well & good! Thank you #wyethnutrition for the #babyfirstgift experience! #s26mama #sp
