April Obsessions

April Obsessions

April has been a hectic month for me to say the least. My hubby left for work for 6 weeks to Asia and I have been juggling a 2 year old, work and getting in some much needed exercise. I applaud all the single parents out there! I am really fortunate to have a workplace that allows me to have flexibility to do pick up and drop off to daycare as well as family close by to help out whenever needed. The entire month I was caught up in keeping Kiyan busy and making sure I had lots of fun activities planned out for him that I wasn’t really taking care of myself and ended up having a cold mid month which wasn’t so fun either.

On a happy note, I had a few successes this month! I have a 2.5 year old who is potty trained! Success! It was hard and I had to enlist the help of my mum on days I was at work but the deed is done, I am so proud of my little man. He was also using a soother up until April and with the help of a great friend that has gone now too.

These are my first pair of Keds and so far I really like them. They are slip-on’s which is handy and they are really comfy to wear all day long. There were a couple of others I was eyeing but of course no luck in my size! Continue reading

The Workout Edit

I hate working out, it is one of those necessary evils. I mean there are people who genuinely love it; but having to wake up extra early to get sweaty and then frantically get ready for work just isn’t fun, and honestly the last thing I want to do after work is then head to the gym. But somehow it gets done, whether at home or at the gym. The one thing that makes it a little more exciting is the gear! I mean if you are going to work up a sweat you need some great gear to wick everything away and keep you cool and dry. I also cannot work out unless I have some great shoes and great tunes! Here are a few my must haves for getting my butt to the gym!
