Say hello to ‘Medela’

Lately, we have introduced gradually our Personal Shopper service for all mothers and mums out there for their little ones as we have received great amount of requests to purchase baby items. As we are preparing for our ‘little one’s’ arrival, we are more than happier to help the mums-to-be, mothers and mommies and now you can get our help to shop for specific items – say baby clothings or strollers? (also open to all baby accessories i.e bottles, breast pumps, etc)

New Medela Swing
Medela Swing Electric Breast Pump with Calma

Medela cooler bag with 4 storage bottles included
We have an interesting top selling mom-recommended accessories to highlight this week, say hello to MEDELA Swing Electric Breast Pump with Calma. Medela is the brand of breast pump used in hospitals across the UK and recommended by lactation consultants and midwives all over the world.

The Medela Swing breast pump is so quick and time saving, you pump a great deal of milk in half the time that you would with most other pumps. It’s super comfortable with different sized nipple shields so you get a perfect fit, which leads to perfect expressing and healthy nipples!

Special promo Medela package for active & working mother

The comfortable SoftFit breastshield creates a massaging effect while you pump and let you create more milk in less time with 2-Phase Expression technology. Don’t worry mommies, all elements of the pump that come into contact with breast milk are BPA free.

We love that it is so compact, small and light, never thought we would see the day that a breast pump could be so tiny, literally fits in your handbag! Don’t think that by being so small and compact that Medela has compromised on any features, it still has a great range of vacuum levels and settings and of course the Medela 2-Phase Expression Technology (based on the natural sucking rhythm of the baby, short, stimulating patterns are followed by longer ones, ensuring optimal milk flow & faster let-down) that pumps breast milk quickly and efficiently.

For this month entry, we are offering special Medela promotion package to our readers (while stocks last) and the package includes;
- Stylish designed Medela Citystyle breastpump bag for active & working mother
- Medela Swing electric breastpump with CALMA
- 1 cooler bag & cooling element
- 4 breast milk bottles 150ml
- 4 lids & discs

For more info on Medela promotion package, contact us at
Have a nice week everyone!

April 2013 – Stylist Picks

Stylist Picks
Spring seems to be far away this year (brrr..still freezing!), the sun just rose somewhere behind the curtain of snow, but there’s nothing piercing or warm about its rays. It doesn’t stop us to be fashionable in our thick coats & boots!
fash-blazers-5 IMG_1170
We have come up with various pieces to be different in this season and still wear your comfy coats and leggings. Being able to put together a look for ourselves that we like and that makes us feel confident and terrific is essential.

Rocking this season’s hottest hues is an excellent way to stay on trend without breaking the bank. We fall in love with this hue of citron yellow. This colour is definite way to beat those winter blues! Citron yellow is just on the verge of being fluorescent, which is why we love it — this shade is b-o-l-d. Adding a citron yellow piece to your wardrobe is sure to brighten up your whole look and, as a bonus, will instantly make your skin look more tan — no fake-baking required!

We are lusting in kelly green too ever since we saw many fashionistas donning their beautiful outfits all around the season. This bright green shade is definitely a head-turner and we can’t wait to wear kelly green sundresses and sandals throughout spring and summer.

Embracing the  refreshing colours and modern simple lines offer a well put-together outfit that you can wear almost anywhere. Layer your look with a crisp, yet comfortable button-down, a ruffled skirt for texture and a structured trench coat to stay toasty and fashionable. Don’t forget to cover your feet with simple girly boots! Nothing is worse than having a warm outfit and cold toes — what’s your style? Enjoy your stylist picks for this month and get more information from us at
