I'm Expecting...

Well, from that title i am sure it's pretty obvious that you guys can figure out the rest of it already, yes i am expecting a huge change in my life and i am not even sure i'm ready for this or not.
But that's life, one can never be "actually" really ready till it happens, it's the same goes for athletes who train for months just for one competition but who knows it might get cancelled or they might even get an injury despite being careful in their training sessions.
What i am trying to say is life just messes with you or a more cruder version - life f*cks you over whether you like it or not.

Someone my age that is soon to be responsible for more things than i can imagine, makes me wonder how can i cope with all this. Will i be able to mentally prepare myself to what's coming or will i give in and break down all over again just like back then when i was waiting to be thrown into a mental hospital because i couldn't live with myself.
Sounds pretty dramatic, but mental issues isn't something to toy with and ignore (learned that the hard way), if you do have a family history of it or suspect that you might be having one, best to get it checked rather than brush it off till it's too late. Not all requires medications, it's just usually the severe cases that needs a slight "assistance", most cases just need a person to hear out their problems or even offer them some practical word of advice. Overall i still hate talking to strangers, so that's why i quit my therapy halfway before i was even well enough to stop my medication. Going cold turkey of Prozacs isn't such a good idea, don't ever try that.

Before i go further into this post, just gonna finally wish myself Happy Birthday. How old?
God only knows (and my mom, IF she does keep track lol), don't usually like being reminded that im getting older yet not really achieving anything in life yet so getting a reminder from people around me just adds on to the pressure. Feel seriously worthless at this point, i'm put on earth for XX years but couldn't even do anything worthwhile except complain about how unlucky i am to get all kinds of misfortunes slapped to my face. Typical human. Oh well.
Also was supposed to be in Japan right now for a week to celebrate my single-hood and go up to Hakone to pray but guess that is not going to happen anytime soon due to financial instability all over again. Sigh. Someone please sponsor me go *ugly sobs* T^T

Word of advice, don't bother asking girls their age because they are never willing to give you an exact number unless they are below 20 (still young & happy) lol.

So what am i really specifically expecting aside from a huge life change?
I came across this article from Huffingpost about a month ago and shared it on my personal Facebook page, it's called "Mind Your Own Womb- by Nadirah Angail"

It hit me really hard after what i've been through for the past few weeks of being in a dilemma of this most important decision making in my entire life. Yes, it's even more important than my studies because the outcome after this will be my future from now on.
Everyone has a say in someone else's life because they are humans who thinks they are entitled to give opinions without knowing the actual circumstances like my previous rant which emphasis alot on these kind of people who act like they know every single jack going on with your life but actually not. It's really annoying that a stranger or just anyone else starts judging you based on THEIR assumptions.

Get your facts and ego straight first before trying to be a smart ass in anyone else's life. 

That my friend, is a word of advice from dear ol' Arisa lol wtf.
True enough that we don't always know what is going on in a friend or family member's life but we do try to offer our sincere help by being there for them in times of need. Except giving snide remarks or unwanted advises, then you are better off not helping out at all because you are clearly here just to make yourself feel better by comparing yourself to others who are in a current pathetic & vulnerable state. I have my fair share of personal stories that i choose to keep them all to myself rather than pouring them out on my blog (kinda selective) but this topic is something obvious (getting fatter & bigger) that i can't hide so might as well just do a public announcement and get over it.

I am not asking for any sympathy or anything of sorts, just maybe some understanding and respect that what i have decided here is my choice and life alone. So others can't interfere and tell me what i should and should not do with my life, because why should you stick your nose into someone else's business in the first place?
Just get the memo and move along.

Sigh..here comes the hardest part, gonna brace myself first.
......

......


15 weeks and growing 
and no fancy "concept" photos like everyone else (hipster wannabes)
when everything is on self timer mode for me lol wtf.

I've decided to be a single mother-to-be and to me on this very birthday i have finally found my long lost twin which is now growing within me.  As a child i've always felt that part of me feels missing, incomplete but i am not sure why. I can't tell if it's a he or a she yet at this early stage but whatever it is i'll promise to cherish it no matter how difficult all the obstacles may be.
All i hope is that this child will one day grow up to understand all the things i did, the mistakes i've made in the past is something that has made who we are today and not something to regret about.
This year 2016 alone i have gone through so many blowns to the head, every single time i tried to pick myself back up from the dirt and go on with life, another one comes crashing in even before i could even recover from the previous one.
I've lost so many important things in life, like my best friend, my partner and a few others along the way, my only feeling right now is FEAR.
Fear of what is going to happen from now on, how am i going to handle this all alone but i do try to tell myself everyday that i've survived the wild jungle before i was even 20, at the age of 15 i was already working and earning. So i will always try to find someway to survive, that what we humans are capable of, adapting

It is kinda sad for me to see so many acquaintances and some friends following their life as planned, graduate- get a job- marry- have kids. But somehow my life is never as smooth sailing as that, how i wish for that but right now it's a little too late to wish for anything already.
I am so envious of those who aren't married but yet expecting a miracle together and welcoming it to the world with open arms rather than one just walking away like how mine did.
Maybe this is a sign that things between us were never ever going to work out in the first place and how terrible it would have been if he were to stay on and raise this child reluctantly.
I would rather do it on my own, even if i have to die trying. 

Do regret this?
In a way Yes and No but what's done is done and no use crying over spilled milk. Like every girl who has dreamed that one day she'll find "the one" whom she wants to spend the rest of her life with, wear a white dress and bear his child. It would be a lie to say i don't wish for those but guess fate never allowed me to enjoy such of life's luxuries.

By now there would be quite a number of you already judging me harshly (i don't blame you guys) especially those who "looked up" to me as an inspiration & influential person but now have their dreams crushed. I am really sorry to disappoint you guys, if that's what you want to hear out of my mouth but this my life and how i choose to live it, so if you think in anyway what i am doing is "wrong" please feel free to leave my pages.

In case you guys were wondering, where do babies come from?
I would say-
"I'm a seahorse", and practice self reproduction. Hope that explanation satisfy your curiosity k?

I call it my "parasite". Parents usually give their fetus a cute nickname and all but to me, Parasite fits best because it's feeding off me making me sick half the time lol. But at least this is an adorable parasite that waved "Hi" on the first proper scan :)

To me nothing has changed really much from this news except from the usual nausea and discomfort of my stomach expanding to make way for the baby's growth.
I actually only discovered it when it was 12 weeks old, by that time it was only a tiny speck with a faint heartbeat. To be honest thought it was my gastric problems taking was keeping me sick since March but looks like it was clearly something else. By the time it reached 14 weeks, i am surprised to see how quickly it developed the formation of a human with arms, legs, fingers, toes and even a nose bridge. All those within 2 weeks, i wasn't a biology student so this kinda fascinated me that i have something growing in me steadily.
At 12 weeks i couldn't bring myself to the idea of terminating it since there was a faint heartbeat and the window for abortion (usual taboo subject) is usually within the first trimester and according to doctor's advice the earlier the better to avoid complications for the mother. If anything beyond 12 weeks you will be referred to backdoor procedures because normal ones wouldn't take up your case unless the fetus is threatening the mother's life or it's in danger itself. Other than that, there is no valid reason to carry out this procedure.

I was asked to terminate it, so i can live a normal life and go about like nothing has happened but part of me knew that i could NEVER forgive myself of this guilt if i were to agree to this. How heartless can some people be just to save their asses, they would do such inhumane things. The offer was indeed tempting, getting it removed and all but unless they can remove my memory as well then i will not let that happen on my watch. Guilt is one of my trigger factors in depression, i know myself well enough that anything that involves guilt will send me back into a withdrawal mood, and it's hard trying to pick myself up from something like that especially when terminating basically means = MURDER. 
I would rather kill myself and the baby rather than the baby alone because what has this innocent child done to deserve such end?
It might seem like a burden to single people like me but, doing that is more unethical but one thing i am grateful for that i wasn't forced to that option because i have every rights over my own body.
Some can live one with this guilt, but some can't because not every human is the same and i am sure it's in any motherly instict is to protect her child first before anything else.

Who's to Blame?
What's the use? We both did what was best by going separate ways. So neither of us is to blame, all i can do i go on living like it's just another day, 

When i decided on this, I've decided not to throw away my humanity just for the sake of having a "normal life". So what if i can never find a guy that would accept me and my child, if that's how it is then so be it. What is "Normal" anyway, since when has anything in my life and the decisions i made is ever normal to begin with?
There are tons of mothers out there who strongly raised their own children single -handedly without the help of any partner.
In the end all that matters now is i'll try my best to stay alive for the sake of this unborn child and work extra harder to provide for it.
All i ask is for God's blessings that things will go smooth from now on, that's is one of the reasons why i wanted to go Japan so badly soon to pray.
So my life isn't going to be about my selfish life anymore, it's soon going to be about my kid and nothing but it, just that i entered this phased earlier than expected without getting to enjoy my little girl life to the fullest lol, like i mentioned multiple times above this post- "life never always go as planned".

Writing this all out, took me more than just my courage. So all i ask is some understanding.

Okay mothers out there, i am here to join your circle of motherhood if you aren't too judgmental on how my child came about lol (if you are, it's wiser for me to avoid you guys too because you are toxic type of people) gonna need some moral support, advises on caring for a baby because some things just can't be simply "googled".
I will save a monthly section on my blog to update my baby's progress, so feel free to drop me comments! :)
Should probably start a donation box or fundraiser link for this child lel, just kidding because i can't bring myself to be that shameless T_T sorry. But if you would like to contribute to help in any way, by all means.


P/S: If you are any other family members (close or extended) who are reading this, please do me a favor and don't spoil my fun of breaking the news to the rest of my direct family members. Let ME do the honor while you guys mind your own business as this is just a memo after all so at least you guys are kept in the loop. Your cooperation is highly appreciated. Thank you.

P/S/S: Direct family members who are reading this, don't go flipping your tables yet and spamming me with your phone calls. Just chill your tits before saying anything stupid.





Bloated whale to be,

MOKU | Introducing SIMPLICITY Fashion


"Dulan* Face"

Really should update more of my fashion posts on my blog than just instagram, gotta be 'rajin' abit lol but now i really understand why most bloggers eventually turned to instagram for their postings instead of blogging because it's fast & straight to the point but honestly i find that a lazy version of blogging, it's more of a live update rather than actually telling a story like how blogging does. That's one of the reason why i do not call myself an "instagrammer" as my main focus is blogging, prefer to write long crap than post tons of selfies in a day with "deep captions" lol.
So brands who are engaging social influencers, please get your facts right about "Bloggers" & "Instagrammers" k? Both aren't the same.

Month of June has been a busy one thus far, actually to think about it every month is a busy one because im trying to make the most out of life. It does get overwhelming at some point when you feel there isn't enough time to complete all the tasks you have at hand.

*pissed off stiff face, common term for model's expression during fashion shoots but they are actually not pissed XD

So for my fashion post this month, i am glad to introduce a local fashion brand who operates their store from Facebook- MOKU (also known as Moku Concept Store)
If you have not heard of this interesting brand, here's your chance to explore the world of MOKU, and at the end of this post you'll even get to enjoy a special discount!
Moku offers a wide range of Japanese aesthetic fashion styles and we all know that Japan is best known for their minimalist approach in almost everything. 


Great as a relaxing weekend leisure wear as it's made from breathable cotton, dress them up with heels or sneakers and it will still look good.


The creativeness comes from the silhouettes of the clothes, various types of fabrications and occasional prints to complete the whole collection giving it a fashionable yet COMFORTABLE outlook for the wearers. Those who enjoy simple designs or unique cuttings would find MOKU a brand that is up their alley.

Throughout June, there's been some featured posting on my coordinations using MOKU's clothing from their May Collection Album, you may shop the looks from their page :)

I could relate very well to MOKU's styles because i honestly love loose fitting clothes over tight ones, even before i was pregnant i am always known to be seen in flowly skirts or some people call a clothes hanger. Everything just hangs off my body frame lol, it's so much more comfortable to be in them than tight clothes which have you worrying about your bulging tummy after every meal of drink. Aside from that there's always space when you gain weight, no need to purposely go out to shop for new clothes because the old ones still fits. So loose clothes ftw!
See wearing loose clothes also have their benefits, makes you look smaller than your actual size too.

Here are the complied looks i've created out of 6 pieces of clothes, just to give you guys an idea on how to style yourself to suit different occasions using MOKU's collection.
Their designs are pretty much versatile, that includes of their subtle color palette making it easy to mix & match without much effort. 
Fashion should always be effortless, because who wants to spend hours putting on a sorts of clothes and not being able to decide even after a few hours lol.

This is personally my favorite look because of the soft colors!
Blush pink pastel pantone, the hype of the year thanks to the Koreans.

A 2 piece dress set, the shirt can be removed and paired with other outfits.
For those worried that stripes always make them look fatter, go for fine type of stripes like the one I'm wearing than big paneled ones. It compliments any body size better and if i throw over a coat, looks like i am ready for an office meeting already (except the hair lol)!


Simple clothes doesn't always mean boring, the flare comes with your styling like how i complimented my Japanese Cotton Midi Dress with black boots, bowler hat & a black bag to match it's contrasting black buttons on a white shirt dress.


Wore my White shirt dress (above) with a Trench dress which can be worn both ways- as a dress or a coat. Most of you know i don't usually fancy wearing sleeveless stuff that's why i'll try to wear them with something that has sleeves lol, so far the outcome of my styling for sleeveless clothes have been somewhat positive plus i get to wear those pretty sleeveless clothes without having to expose my arms lol.  This is also my 2nd favorite look to date as it does give the 40s fashion vibe where ladies are dressed CLASSY & proper.

All of MOKU's clothings can be worn various ways, for that we'll leave it up to your creativity to be your own fashion stylist! Impress us with your styling/ coordination skills by posting and  #ARISAxMOKU :)
Would love to see the ideas you guys have as well!

This section below is where i went abit nuts on the pairings as i was curious to find out whether it's possible to even pull them off lol, let me know what do you guys think? I usually do this kind of multi-usage coordinations during my travels so i don't have to pack too many clothes and yet i still can get an OOTD worthy shots. 

Yep i too both shirts and made it into a set XD
by flipping in the sleeves of my grey top i made myself a skirt.

Overalls from my first coordination above, throw over a white shirt and you have a complete comfortable look and it looks like you are wearing those famous Japanese wide pants style.
It's a huge trend in Japan by the way!

So have i managed to convince you guys to get into simplicity fashion trend yet? :-P
If you spot something you like don't forget to quote my code: "ARISAxMOKU" to enjoy 10% off your total purchase (no minimal spending) upon ordering via their Facebook page: MOKU

Psst! July collection is out, go check out their album today: July Butternut

Travel Planning One Stop Solution - i1holiday.com

It’s been close to 2 decades since the first independence day (with will smith acting) was released think I was barely even 5 by then but I could remember it so well because those damn slimy aliens freaked the hell outta me just like how the Imhotep from The Mummy did. Sorry, ugly things just doesn’t appeal to me as a kid lol and it took me quite a long time before I got over my fears for those 2 to even consider re-watching the movies, yes it was that bad. No thanks to my old man for allowing an underage kid watch adult movies lol ohya the only one I enjoyed at that age was probably Titanic minus the sex scenes since I was told to cover my face lol wtf. Bad or good parenting, you guys decide la XD




For those who have yet to watch the movie just because you haven’t watch the first one, trust me you won’t miss out much as the 2nd movie is an EXACT COPY of the first movie, just lazy copy paste work from the directors which got me quite disappointed as I was expecting something NEW since I’ve waited 2 bloody decades for this movie!

Well expect this movie to be a better CGI version of the first, minus Will Smith’s charisma and wittiness lol but at least they had his poster hanging in the white house (opps unintentional spoiler) but overall it’s just a trip down memory lane kind of movie and when you watch the first movie, you’ll be like “didn’t I see the same thing in the 2016 movie?” And don’t get my started on the useless character in this movie which was played by Asia’s most loved plastic surgery face template- Angela baby.

She’s useless and hopeless, her acting (was she even acting? I don’t know man) just ruined by her presence, the directors thought it was probably a good idea to bring in an Asian eye candy so it doesn’t look so all American focused but failed tremendously. Those who love Angela, would probably be bashing and hating my blog but really acting is talent & skill, and some people are just not born with it and the fine example is HER. You have no idea how many times I had to control myself from clawing my eyes out whenever her 1-2sec shots were on screen. At the end of the movie, you too would ask “what is she there for?”. Extreme waste of movie budget -_-

There are so many other Asian Hollywood actresses out there who could probably do a 100 times better than this plastic Barbie. Just stick to modelling and giving men unrealistic expectation on Asian beauty k?

Overall, it was an “OKAY” movie lar, the first movies are always better to be honest, but thank you for the movie treat i1holiday.com :) It was a pleasant trip down memory lanes, except Angela spoilt it with few of her useless scenes & terrible facial experessions (must be the fillers & botox) lol.

Look out for www.i1holiday.com advertisement in all major GSC cinemas today before your movie starts!

Okay rant finish and out of my system lol, I really shouldn’t be writing movie review because I just end up bashing every one of them except XD
And big thank you to my beautiful date Reiko for agreeing to watch this movie with me and put up with my small talk kok session during dinner, what a coincidence Jean and a few other familiar faces are there at the movie too lol, world is getting too small! 


Thank you i1holiday!


[LIFESTYLE/ TRAVEL FEATURE]

Now who is this i1holiday.com? If some of you recalled one of my postings last week in search for places to stay while I am in Tokyo (planning la, not sure can or not lol) and I actually found super duper good deals! I am one heck of a lazy person when it comes to planning, totally the go with the flow kinda person that’s why travelling with me can sometimes be a pain in the ass since I don’t have any plans. 



Those who are chill, wouldn’t mind my mindset but for those uptight and scheduled kind of person would probably flip multiple tables at me already lol (no joke). But really, living in this era of convenience what more can a lazy person like me ask for? I love to travel but the planning that comes with the headache sometimes really does turns me off, I don’t have that skill of “planning” like some people because I'm such a disorganized person. Come on!

Look at my room at you’ll be shaking your head at my clutter, reminds me I need to started being “neat” before the baby arrives :-/

What I did discover about i1holiday.com is indeed a life changing moment for me, I can actually finally plan my holiday to Japan without doing all the planning and research work because that’s what i1holiday does for you! 


Noticed all the travel sites on the upper right corner?


Some might ask what’s so special about i1holiday since there are other websites offering similar services like Agoda, Expedia, skyscanner and a few others. Let’s simplified this and say that i1holiday is basically your GOOGLE SEARCH for holiday packages. Oh and those websites I’ve just mentioned doesn’t exactly offer you a full travel package, it’s usually flight & accommodation only. For elderly people like our parents they prefer something in a WHOLE PACKAGE, so they don’t have to go through multiple websites and bookings as all they want to do is to enjoy their holiday in peace without the stress of having to hunt up & down for tour packages to put on top of their flight & accommodation. 

If you were to search on google there would be thousands over searches you’ll need to filter through, open link by link, closing and opening sounds like a lot of work, but by just searching via i1holiday.com all those unnecessary links will be filtered out already and what’s presented to you on a silver platter is the best choices for your ideal holiday. Full package or half, whichever you need it will be presented to you based on your search on i1holiday and the results they offer are unbiased as they are just a travel search engine for you to use. Plus it’s free with no singing up & security info nonsense so why not use it right? For once a FREE SERVICE website that doesn’t have a catch lol!

What is shown in their search results?

Only legit travel agencies and websites will be displayed on your search page and to each travel agency/ travel website they will have their own deals, so everything is compiled there for you in i1holiday. 



Same thing like how we usually attend Matta Fair every year but end up going home disappointed and tired from the human traffic & humid halls, without getting any good deals or travel packages and having to deal with so many pushy sales people. Now with i1holiday you don’t even need to leave your home at all or deal with all those unnecessary inconvenience! It saves you the trouble & hassle, plus I am soon a mom to be and walking/standing long hours does take it’s toll on my lower back and feet. Doubt I’ll have the time to even go survey holiday fairs anymore especially with a baby in hand it’s also not too ideal to bring them out into crowded places. Well, it’s great for me that I can just sit in the comforts of my own home and just click & purchase online lol.

Problem solved both for old folks & busy families! 



Look at those attractive prices!

But damn..all these good deals offered based on my recent search is enough to make me feel like packing my bags and take off now, but I can’t! Have to save up for #mylilparasite so I have to bid goodbye to all my travel plans and majority of my cosplay plans since the baby is priority now and I don’t have a rich husband (or even a husband/ partner to begin with) to sponsor my bills and rental lol. Oh well, poor people life it is. Unless of course I am being sent/ sponsored for work purposes to travel abroad then that’s the only time I will ever get to travel again. It would be awesome if that could happen though! *in my dreams* lol.

For now i1holiday only offers you search results, but hopefully near future they will offer other interesting stuff too and I’ll be looking forward to that.

More details visit their website: www.i1holiday.com
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/i1holidaywcv


So don't be lazy and ask me "which site offers the best deal for Japan holidays", just go search on i1holiday.com lol


XOXO,

[Pregnancy Safe Manicure] Gudetama Nails by CRNailz + Giveaway!

Back with another post and i think this blog will soon be posting majority about pregnancy stuff lol, but no harm just updating an extra info for my non pregnant readers out there who might one day be mothers themselves right? :)
Heck, i always used to say that i never wanted to be a mother (or if i do, i would rather adopt instead) but things caught me by surprised so best to just accept and go on with life lol.
So this time round I've decided to team up with these trusted talented ladies from CRNailz & Smeeka (met them through a friend, Elle) who does house calls for manicure & pedicure session which can be a good option for mothers who are in confinement but would like some simple pampering like a hand & foot spa or just plain lazy ones (like me *ahem*) who prefers to get pampering done within the comforts of my own home. See I have a valid reason too lol!
Jing handles the manicure & pedicure meanwhile Shan handles the hands & feet spas.




Also if it wasn't for Markets at Jaya One, i wouldn't have gotten to know about Smeeka's handmade products, if youa re a regular Markets goer then you might probably bump into them a few times already because their booth is know of their express manicure & spa sessions.

You wouldn't believe that both Jing & Shan are self taught artists of their own profession, and they are seriously passionate & good at what they do. Honestly i do prefer to support small scale business run by people who are actually honest in growing it with their own efforts rather than big ass organizations who doesn't give a rat ass whether their service is good or bad as long they get to charge you extra high because they are providing "professional service" (my butt).

Jing is the founder & artist of CRNailz for some of you blur people who still don't get what i'm writing up to here lol and Shan is the crafter of Smeeka skincare products. Both these ladies are really fun to chat with which made my whole spa & manicure session a pleasant one rather from my previous experience from these renown beauty parlors where they don't even squeak a single sound throughout the whole session (boring wei).


This was seriously relaxing, helps to soften my hard cuticles & moisturize my super dry hands.
Sometimes i wonder if i have guy hands or ladies lol? Guess some genetic inheritance can't be changed, wait till you see my feet if i do not take care of it *shudders*

Smeeka sells made-to-order products 
So if you would like artisan soaps, spa bombs or body scrubs, 
drop them a message on their Facebook page here: SMEEKA

]
So i guess i am done with the basic introductions and let's go into the more informative & technical (not so la) ones about PREGNANT LADIES & MANICURES.
Before you aunties go so high & mighty about your so called knowledge, hold your horses as no one asked for your old wives wisdom here ok?
Please shove it somewhere else instead and don't waste my breathe trying to argue with you guys, i would rather save it for gym panting lol wtf.

For first time expecting mothers you might already have googled about things you can't eat (best avoid) or things you can't do but there is so many outdated variations these days all over google search that you can't even find a proper & reliable source. Heck even Wikipedia isn't all accurate as you (as public) can edit & contribute to the information there as well. So get what i am trying to say here?
For hair dyes & bleaching while pregnant (not so in-depth) I've already blogged about my most recent experience HERE, so you guys can check if you are curious.
As for manicure i had no idea we aren't supposed to be doing at all even though it's just on the surface of our nails that's not even going to seep through our skin but there are exceptions based on the type of nail polishes used.

Brace yourselves on the incoming information 

Ever heard of the term "3 FREE" or "5 FREE" nail polishes? If you did and do not know what i even means, get ready to be schooled lol.
These nail polishes are basically labeled according to the amount of  supposedly harmful ingredients ( to preggie moms) removed from the nail polishes, but you'll be surprised that not all manicure/ pedicure parlors offers this kind of options as they are using commercial nail polishes like OPI or China Glaze, or not surprising at all the manicurist themselves don't even know the existence of these terms lol.

Smart asses might just say "don't do manicure lor like that", we'll some of us just want to look beautiful so there's no harm to it especially now with modern technology, most things are achievable without compromising much. Also everything around us consists of chemicals unless you live in the jungle and use leaf to brush your teeth la. Even the food you consume has chemicals in it, the air you breathe in daily has toxic gases, your face-wash also has chemicals and the list goes on and on, so before you bluntly throw your "smart assumptions" around, think first before speaking. That my friend can save you a hell lot of trouble, just by keeping your mouth shut unless you have something proper to say.


Excuse my messy table lol


  • Which is better? "3 FREE" or "5 FREE"?

Obviously 5 free would be a better choice compared to 3 free as said above the number indicates the amount of harmful chemicals that's been excluded from the nail polishes. Heard from Jing there is also "10 Free" nail polishes available right now but doesn't seem legit based on the ingredient label lol so we'll just stick to "5 Free" option for now.


  • Where can i get 5 FREE nail polishes?
The thing about these nail polishes because they are usually homemade by indie beauty community, it isn't something that's available off the shelves. probably overseas you might easily find these in one of your homemade artisan markets but here, it's a NOPE unless someone brought them in & sold locally la. There are a few known 5-free Australian indie polishes like Picture Polish, I-Scream Nails & Miss Ashleigh (fell free to google) which are the ones used by CRNailz.
Even not pregnant ladies can use them as lesser chemicals in a product is always better than more right?

  • How about gel nails? I've seen Cheesie doing it frequently throughout her pregnancy 
Well there are a few types of gel nails and not all gel products are derived from the same place so that i can't say much about it or where Cheesie did hers. However Japan is known for doing gel nails rather than normal manicure as it lasts longer, less maintenance (until removal) and beauty products that are made there has very strict health guidelines to follow, that's one of the reasons why i rather use Japanese products rather than any random brands outside. I have a few other Japanese friends who was once mothers and they still dyed their hair & did their nails during their pregnancy so i don't see what's all the fuss about. Everything in moderation is the key. It's not to say that i visit the salon everyday to get my hair done lol wtf. 

  • Does CRNailz have gel manicure?
Yes they do, in fact they mastered the gel manicure skills from Japanese nail artist sensei-s themselves, even though their specialty are their beautiful self taught ombres (check out their album), you can also get nail art done like my Gudetama nails! It's a special request by the way :-P
This is the first time i actually got nail art done on my nails, usually it's just one color or ombre so i am really excited lol, everyday i look at them and it puts a smile on my face because it's just so pretty!


 Gudetama everything!!


 BUTT!!!!!!

To book CRNailz services, feel free to contact them via their Facebook page: CRNailz
As mentioned they don't have a physical store as they are a mobile beauty service, so let them know which location you would like them to meet you at and they'll come to you.
Each location has different transportation charges, but it's still way affordable without needing to go through the hassle of driving out, hitting bad traffic & finding parking lol.
