4 Benefits of Co-Sleeping

 

Many Singaporean parents believe that co-sleeping is for the better. While other Western cultures see co-sleeping as a social taboo, what matters most at the end of the day is what you believe in. Co-sleeping is also called “sharing sleep”. This is a parenting practice where parents and children share the “family bed”.

Seeing it as a social taboo is unfounded. Parents who share sleep with toddlers or even older children reported many benefits. To discuss it further, here are the benefits of co-sleeping:

  1. It fosters independence and trust. Many parents are afraid that if they encourage co-sleeping, the kid will grow dependent. While it is good to encourage children to sleep alone, you shouldn’t do it hurriedly. Remember that they are babies or toddlers once, you have to enjoy it. It will not foster dependence. In fact, it will be the other way around. When you share sleep with your kids, you are teaching them that they can trust those around them and eventually be independent.

 

  1. It makes children feel more secure. The image of children thumb sucking or carrying a blanket is a common sight but what does this really tell you? These children do not feel safe enough that they tend to rely on those habits. When you share sleep with your kids, they do not need to feel more secure because you are there. In this society, children are now taught to self-soothe. As a result, parents let them find security objects. But why not provide them comfort by your presence?

  1. It is an excellent bonding moment. Parents do not realize this but when you allow your kids to your bed, it sends a strong message saying “you can reach us day or night”. The countless hours or snuggles can be an excellent bonding moment. You won’t realize it but it can have a positive impact on your children’s self-esteem.

 

  1. It encourages good sleep. There is no question that during their infancy, you share sleep because you need to nurse them. As they get older and you want them to be dependent, you thought it is for the better to leave them in their rooms. That is where you are wrong. As long as your child is comfortable, co-sleeping can encourage good sleep.

Co-sleeping is not that bad. With the benefits mentioned above, you can give it to your children effortlessly. If you need bigger bed, then do it. It is fun to co-sleep if you give it a chance.

Everything You Should Know About Cyber Safety

 

The cyber world is so vast that it can influence its users. Cyber world can be accessed via smartphones, tablets, personal computers, etc. using the internet. Here in Singapore alone. Many children are provided with such electronic devices because parents think that it is for the greater good. While it is undeniable that these gadgets made things easier, no one should discount the risks it involves.

What are the risks these devices pose? Smartphones or tablets are now used by minors for sexting. Sexting is the act of sending inappropriate contents (like texts and images). Some even use their devices to bully other people. Bullying can have a mental effect on your kid as it is a form of sending threatening messages. The worse thing that could happen is uploading it to YouTube thereby crushing the kid’s self-esteem. It does not end there because it can also be the root cause of improper time management. Plus it can compromise the kid’s safety as it can automatically share your current location on social media apps.

Knowing about the risk, how should you curb it as parents? Ever heard about cyber safety? You can fight it if you are being vigilant and that includes filtering, locking, controlling or monitoring the electronic devices of your kids. How can you do this? Well, the first thing that you can do is to prevent the use of the device’s camera because it is the source of everything. If your kid is being bullied, help him/her to block the texts or calls from specific persons.

If you are serious about this, why not set a limit when it comes to internet access? This can help a lot because it is like preventing things to happen before it actually started. The most important thing is to instil to your kids that file sharing is a no-no especially if it is with sensitive contents. File sharing over Bluetooth is the beginning of everything. Might as well tell them to screen the apps they download as it can also be a source.

Remember that at the end of the day, your kids need guidance. Always explain why you are restricting their access so they will understand. But if the kid is really curious, they will find something to access it outside. This is the reason why you should also teach them how to behave appropriately so they will not become a victim of anything. Discussing the risk and their protection is not easy but if you have to do it, do it anyway.

7 Things to Keep in Mind Before Getting a Drastic Haircut

A new haircut can be both totally amazing and terrifying—it only takes five to ten minutes to chop off one’s hair, and if you don’t like the results, well, you’ll still have to walk around with it for months That said, there is nothing more satisfying and confidence-boosting than walking down the streets with a gorgeous new hairstyle after a visit to a hair salon in Singapore.

Here are important things to keep in mind when going for a major hairstyle change to ensure good hair days in the months to come.

1. Consider Hair Texture

Hair can be categorized into several different texture types: dry, oily, curly, straight, wavy, thick, fine, or limp.

If you have fine, stringy hair that tends to fall flat at the crown, your hair will look fuller when short. On the other hand, girls with thick, curly hair need to weigh their tresses down with length—the shorter your hair, the higher the fluff factor of your hair will be. Same thing goes with bangs. If you have straight hair, it’ll fall flat on your forehead. If you have curly hair, bangs are prone to frizziness. And no matter the texture of your hair, split ends and damaged hair never looks good, so cut it off.

2. Think About Your Lifestyle

If you’re the type of person who finds it fun and therapeutic to spend an hour every morning tending to your locks, then almost any hairstyle from my hairdo bar in Singapore will work for you. However, if you’re a busy gal who’s constantly on the rush, be careful about getting a high-maintenance hairstyle that requires blow-drying or ironing after every wash. Other lifestyle considerations to discuss with your hairstylist:

• Do you usually wear your hair on a ponytail to work out? You would want a hairstyle with enough length to allow you to pull your hair back.
• Can you blow-dry your bands correctly? If getting bangs, ask your hair salon to teach you a quick blow-dry lesson to keep your bangs looking good all the time.
• Do you blow-dry or air-dry your hair? Your hairstylist will want to cut your hair into a style that would look good air dried if that’s your preferred method.
• How much time do you have every day to style your hair?

3. Be Forgiving With Face Shape

Do not freak out about your face shape. While it certainly is a factor for choosing a new hairstyle, don’t let this be the sole factor. The question of whether you can rock a shorter hair has more to do with the state of your confidence than your face shape. The key to finding the right hairstyle is pinpointing what makes you feel comfortable—and what doesn’t—and working your way around it.

So, if you feel like you have fuller cheeks that make your face look wider, choose a hairstyle with more length or one that falls below your chin to pull the eye away from the feature you wish to de-emphasize.

4. Do So at the Right Time

We’ve all been tempted to chop our hair off after a break up, but professional hairstylists actually recommend not making any drastic hairstyle change during a highly emotional time or before a major public appearance.

If you really feel like you need to make some hairstyle changes, getting just a trim first is a good way to test the waters. It’s normal to feel frightened when thinking of losing significant length of hair. But once you see for yourself the change of a new look brings, it can be addicting.

5. Find the Best Hair Salon

For longer hair length, getting a bad hair cut can easily be hidden in a braid. But if you’ve got shorter haircut, you’ll have to deal with it for days, weeks and months, staring at your mirror and wishing for your hair to grow faster.

According to professional hairstylists, a good short hair depends on the cut—not on the tools, products or the way you style it. The cut is the foundation of all hairstyles. Finding the best hair salon in Singapore is the key to having gorgeous new hairstyle. Long hairstyles and short hairstyles are very different, so it’s really important to see first the work of a hair salon. Instagram and Facebook are great ways for that, or if you see a friend or an officemate with great haircut, ask her who cut it and check the hair salon out yourself.

6. Bring Photos

The number one rule doing a major change to your hair is don’t just tell your hairstylist your dream hairstyle, show it. Pictures show everything. Long layers can mean differently to different people, so make sure you’re armed with pictures of your favourite celeb, Pinterest posts, Instagram photos and anything else you can get a hold of to show exactly what you mean.

However, do not just bring photos of hairstyles you like, having pictures of hairstyles you do not can also be a big help to your hairstylist. That way, your hairstylist knows what to avoid, even if you can’t clearly articulate what you don’t want.

7. Check Your Schedule

If you have decided to cut your hair short, know that it requires more maintenance than longer hairstyles as you need to have it trimmed more often. To maintain the shape and body of your hair, as well as the colour, you should plan on hair salon trips at least every four weeks.

Also, short hairstyles, like a pixie cut or an A-line bob, require to be prepped up in the morning, so ensure that this won’t cause any hassle in your itinerary for that day. Having your hair air dried may cause the ends to go in whatever direction instead of keeping them inwards, towards the neck, making the ends look frizzy and messy.

When thinking of getting a hair makeover, the best hair salon in Singapore can help you pick the right hairstyle for you. Book an appointment with a hair salon now for free consultation with a professional hairstylist.

Modern-Day Fashion Dos and Don’ts for Curvy Ladies

 

Most of the fashion rules we typically hear for curvier ladies have become outdated—avoid bold prints, wear wide-legged jeans, go for vertical prints, etc. The good news is that there’s a lot more of options for curvy women than the time these “rules” were formulated. With that mind, we’ve come up with more modern fashion tips on how to dress if you have a curvy figure.

  1. Do Wear Crop Tops

Whoever said that curvy women can’t wear crop tops just don’t know how to pick the right one for their body type. Crop tops that hit just above the hip area are fashionable and actually help emphasize your curves. But if you carry more weight lower in your tummy, get a shorter one that exposes a bit of skin higher up, and pair it with a high-waisted jeans or skirt.

  1. Don’t Wear Baggy Bottoms

If you’re not confident enough to wear figure-hugging clothes or expose a bit of skin as stated in the previous tip, do not make the mistake of hiding your curviness behind a pair of baggy bottoms. This only adds unnecessary volume to your hips and thighs, which is a hundred percent unflattering for your figure.

  1. Do Highlight Your Curves With Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans have long been said to be the most unflattering bottom wear for curvy ladies. But guess what, it’s now one of the best ways to emphasize your killer curves. Bottoms that hug the hips well bring the attention to your curves. Match it with an empire-cut top, or if you’re feeling more confident, a body-hugging top made of thicker material to put emphasis on a slimmer waist.

  1. Don’t Sport Pieces With Embellishments Around the Hips

While it’s fashionable to wear embellished tops or bottoms, pieces with overstated designs around the hip area can add bulkiness, and look unflattering for curvy girls. Instead, bring the embellishment higher by looking for tops with embroidery or wearing a belt around the smallest part of your waist. For bottoms, opt for clean and sleek designs to lengthen your legs.

  1. Do Wear Bold Prints and Fitted Dresses

Yes, curvy ladies can wear bold prints, as long as the fit and shape of the clothes are flattering—think of loud-printed A-line dresses, for example. Likewise, you can wear bodycons and figure-fitting dresses as long as they are made of thick spandex fabric. You want these dresses to be in thicker material to give you a smooth and streamlined look.

Fashion is constantly changing, and more and more brands and designers today are embracing the uniqueness of a curvier body type, creating more fashion pieces suitable for every body shape. If you want to break-free from your wide-legged jeans and be trendier with your fashion choices, know that you certainly can—just keep these tips in mind.

Fashion and Beauty Tips for Busy Moms

 

Being a mom is never easy—whether you’re the stay-at-home kind who runs around like a headless chicken every morning or the working kind of mom who spends after-work hours tutoring the kids for their assignments and exams.

It’s completely understandable if you have forgotten about your beauty routines. However, wouldn’t it be great to keep your skin flawless and your look more updated when sending kids to school or go on a date night with hubby?

Here are some beauty and fashion tips to heed to look and feel your best, so you can continue being a super mom and a lovely wife.

  1. A Set of Trusty Beauty Products

When you’re constantly on the rush, you want no-fuzz beauty products every time you’re getting ready. Our top picks are a moisturizer and a lotion with SPF, fresh-scented perfume or cologne and a lipstick.

  1. Once-a-Month Facial Treatment and Foot Spa

There is a whole set of options when it comes to facials and foot spas, but the basic ones would be enough to do the job. While the kids are at school, find a time to get your treatments done, and make sure to keep up with this schedule every month. To preserve the effects of your facial in between treatments, stick to the golden rule of cleansing, toning and moisturizing every day and night.

  1. A Classic LBD

As long as you have the perfect little black dress, the possibilities are endless. You can dress it up with heels and a clutch for a date-night look or dress it down with flats and a tote bag for a strolling-with-the-kids-at-the-park kind of look. Bear in mind that this dress doesn’t have to be skin-tight, so you don’t have to worry about unflattering curves. Finding the perfect LBD is about getting the right silhouette—not the brand or the price of the dress.

  1. A Pair of Versatile Heels

You need to have at least one—for special occasions or fancy night-out with your girl friends. No need to get yourself sky-high heels if you’re not comfortable in them. An elegant wedge or kitten heels will do the same trick. Keep your eyes peeled for the pointy style; it makes your legs look longer and sexier regardless of the height of the heels.

  1. Instant Hair-Dos

We totally get it—you’re always on the rush and just don’t have the time to spend in front of the vanity blow-drying and curling your hair. Before going to bed, dry your hair and bring it up to a loose knot with a scrunchie. For fine hair, use a volumizer spray at the roots of the hair before putting it up in a knot. When you wake-up, release the knot, tousle your hair and enjoy your fabulous locks.

You see, your kids and your husband may come first, but your well-being doesn’t always have to come last. With these helpful tips you can look effortlessly chic while still being the best mom you can be.
