Thomashlynshome #3: Comfort Design Furniture x Choosing the perfect sofa

More on our living room!
With a grey and white theme in mind, we knew we had to get a new grey sofa. Our previous black sofa, though still functioning fine, would give a totally different feel. So, we passed the black sofa to my parents and went on to search for "the perfect one"!
So, what would be considered as "the perfect one" for us?

How Motherhood has changed me?

I was once the girl who sleep from midnight to noon and still feel sleepy. That's how much I love and need sleep. But, these days, I hardly sleep for more than 4 hours straight as Avalyn still wakes up once a night. I don't know what time my days exactly end, did it ever end? But, my days start at early as 5.30am and never later than 8am. I still love to sleep, perhaps even more than before, given how sleep deprived I'm now.  In fact, I even can't remember when was the last time I had a good night sleep.

Thomashlynshome #1: Main Door - An Digital Lock and Schlage S-480 Digital Lock


Welcome to #thomashlynshome!

I'm so excited to kick start our #thomashlynshome series and can't wait to walk you through different corners of our home. 

Here's our main door before installing the Schlage S-480 Digital Lock! 

When Hubby suggested to get a digital lock for our new house, I thought it wasn't necessary. I've been using keys and padlocks for the longest time and didn't thought of trying a digital lock. Even though I always have trouble finding my key in my handbag, I'm used to it. However, my life changed after having Schalge S-480 Digital lock. It really brought us lots of convenience!

With a toddler and a baby, getting out of the house takes more effort than before. On school/work days, things got more tedious. We leave home with 4 bags, sometimes 5. There are 2 bags for the girls, my handbag, pump bag and at times, Hubby's laptop bag. So it's really saves us time and effort without the need to search for keys, unlock and lock using keys. 

With just a gentle tap on the Schalge S-480 Digital Lock, we are ready to head out.

Finally moved!

We've finally moved into our new place!
8 months of waiting, defect check and home renovation went by in a blink! Even though it didn't feel like it was every time I thought about home stuff then, things had indeed just zoomed by faster than I could even capture. We moved into parents-in-law's place as a family of 3 and now, we moved on to our new place with 4!

Cleaning with Ecover Zero Range


What are the 2 main house chores that most families do regularly, if not, daily?

For our family, it's laundry and dish washing. Honestly, the house can go on without cleaning of floors and toilets for a couple of days, but laundry and dishes are the 2 chores that can't pile up. We don't want to run out of clothes and invite insects to our house.

However, little did I know that some of the laundry and dish washing detergent that we used contains "phosphates" that pollutes water systems and harm aquatic life. So, what can we do? We can't live without washing, but we can choose to use eco-friendly products like Ecover.

When I received the Ecover Zero Range, I wasn't quite impressed. Blame it on the fanciful and colourful packaging of products out in the market. The Ecover Zero products. in translucent plastic bottles with blue labels, are pale in comparison.

But, what seems like a normal laundry and dish washing detergent products to me are actually so much more!

7 things about being a second time mother

I recently started my journey as a 2nd time mother. Things are very different from the first time I became a mother. At first, I was worried that it would be a struggle but it wasn't as bad as I thought. I find it easier to go from 1 child to 2 than from 0 to 1. But, it's just tiring. So, how is it really like for me to be a 2nd time mother?
