Some updates about me

February 25, 2013

Hi everyone, I just came back from my baby-moon to the beautiful Hamilton Island recently, and that is my exciting news to share although I am still a bit shy about it! Yes I am over 4 months pregnant now and that is why I have been absent from blogging as my focus has been strictly on my ever-expanding belly. I am a first timer so everything about being pregnant is exciting and anxious to me. There are a lot of physical changes that I am still not used to, such as being a few dress sizes bigger now, with a rounder face and feeling swelling everywhere else. I am also having extreme fatigue and nauseous everyday. These things do not sound glamorous at all, but as most mums-to-be would know I could not be happier with where I am now!

These pictures were taken at the magnificent qualia resort at Hamilton Island. The beauty and serenity of this place is breathtaking, and is perfect for a private and indulgent holiday.


Zimmermann Playsuit

Shades Gucci

Tiffany Bead Bracelet Silver Mini

Hermes CDC

Shoes Jimmy Choo

And here is a very preggo pic of me! My hubby is starting to call me an ‘egg’ now..

so that’s why there’s a dearth of makeup entries!

Congratulations Reika! I am so happy for you! When you mentioned that you had a big news to share, first thing popped up in my mind was you being pregnant … I am 4 months prego also, this one is going to be my 5th child. I’m looking forward to your updates even more! Take care!


Amanda February 25, 2013 at 1:53 pm

hah! I knew it! Congratulations to you and your hubby. You look absolutely lovely, Reika, as always. I hope the remainder of your pregnancy goes easier for you.

Love the playsuit.

On a cosmetics note, I picked up some items from the Chanel Spring line: Joles Contraste blush in Frivole, a beautiful coral. Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in La Favourite – also a bright coral. Rouge Coco Shine in Monte Carlo (permanent collection). All of which I think would suit you. Chanel’s new Le Volume de Chanel Mascara is amazing, I only wish it was waterproof.

Best wishes from Canada.

No wonder! Congratulations to you and your husband! You’re now a mommy!
Even if you are gone for a month a two, we will still wait for your return!
Take good care of yourself and embrace maternity. It is a wonderful feeling, so I’ve been told by my older sisters.
You will feel even more beautiful afterwards so stay strong!

Congratulations to you and your husband! That is great news, and it is understandable that you would be taking time for yourself and your baby rather than concentrating on your blog (although I, for one, miss your posts!). And you definitely don’t look egg-ish in those photographs. Take good care!
