BUGABOO X DIESEL ROCKS

skipping a little bit on my usual fashion articles into a mom-related blogpost for today! So, you guys know that I am a loyal Bugaboo user (see my previous post on the Dutch pram brand here)... Just a disclaimer, my actual Bugaboo unit was NOT sponsored (that would be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious if it was) , I bought the stroller before my first son was born and I am still loyal to it until now. Being a fan, I was very excited that their newest limited edition stroller is a another collaboration design with Diesel !

The new Bugaboo Bee 3 Diesel boasts same good compact but sturdy specs like all "Bees" do. (Trust me, when I say sturdy : I've shopped, chucked toys, diaper bags, groceries.... Plus with the kid on the stroller...) Except now... The Bee is adorned with cool studs, a screened tattoo inspired image at the back, special ed wheels.. All in a cool black color scheme.

I've always felt that kids are an extension of our style profile... well it doesn't hurt when that style profile is 'continued' to the gears we bring when we tote our kids around right?

DIOR EVER

there's no doubt that Dior has been one of my favorite brands.. from the first time I was taught about the 'New Look' to Galliano's glorious days and even until Raf Simons left... there's not one collection I loath. When I managed to get a sneak peak of their new accessories collection, I was beyond ecstatic to be able to shoot with the products. Together with Advan Matthew and Jessica 'Meica' Makeup, we collaborated and created this editorial.

BAG PLAY

It's always exciting when a new creative director takes over a brand with such extensive history. Louis Vuitton for example. Just last November, it was announced that Nicholas Ghesquière was appointed as the new artistic director and boy I couldn't be any more in love with his collections. Marc Jacobs I loved your quirky charms, but Ghesquière was more 'me'. It was an honor to be able to continue working with Louis Vuitton over the past year. I really enjoyed the process of selecting the new clothes & bags I wanted to shoot with. Despite the fact that I had already grown some baby belly, with the help of correct sizing (it's not the end of the world if you have to wear Large ladies... you can even get compliments on looking skinnier!) and posing, we managed to pull everything off without me looking like a human kangaroo. Thank you for the terrific team !

THE BREEZE

Note to my Instagram followers, this was shot 2 months ago or something. So naturally the baby bump has not quite protruded yet. and Note to my blog-only-readers, yes I am pregnant again ! The light was beautiful on that particular afternoon... I remembered that it was hazy, soft amongst the occasional clouds.. and the wind was wonderful as well. You know, that kind of cool breeze that made shooting in a Jakarta afternoon a tad easier, and a tad less sweaty. and thanks to that weather, I actually have some content to upload for the blog ! Otherwise, it's another Instagram iphone OOTD...

STAYING DRY

Babies and diapers... in our modern days, they're literally the 2nd most important item to stock up other than milk ! Otherwise, all the magic that comes out from the babies' bottoms will cause a severe mess. Yes, there has been a debate that cloth diapers are better, but for myself and Denzel more importantly, disposable diapers are simply more convenient. Plus, washing all that junk off in the laundry room doesn't sound appealing to me either. Therefore, even months before my son was born, I was fixed that I shall find disposable diapers that will suit my son perfectly.

I bought a couple of diapers brands ranging in all sorts of prices in the beginning to see which I liked most. But, the very first diaper my son's buttocks came in contact with were MamyPoko ExtraDry(s). My hospital just happened to provide these but immediately, I liked how they stayed dry for a long period and as a Disney fan, of course I enjoyed the Mickey Mouse prints as well (LOL.. well presentation is important!) ... Little D then came home, and I began experimenting with the other diapers I bought earlier, and I still liked MamyPoko Extra Dry the most. The sizing was perfect for my not-so-big baby, they didn't inflate much, and being reasonably priced was an added bonus. Fast forward one and half year later, Denzel is still a MamyPoko baby ! Only now, he has transitioned into the MamyPoko Pants Extra Dry as fastening tapes is becoming a chore for an active toddler. With a soft elastic waistband, my son's tummy is never irritated. In fact, he enjoys slipping his legs through the "pants".
