Hi! ⛅️

Welcome to my blog! 😊

I’m an expat stay-at-home-mom in Batam (Indonesia), “cray-cray” mom of 2 beautiful girls, and I love upbeat music, keeping fit, creating with thread, & Crime TV.

A perfectionist, a bit high-strung, undeniably cranky when sleep-deprived but a cheerful introvert nonetheless, I keep myself busy exploring new interests, learning new things & coming to terms with being a stay-at-home mom someplace I deem much too uneventful for my disposition.

I am energized by the night sky, morning mists, the sound of waves, sunny days, thunderstorms, beauty treatments, perfume and fierce red lipstick 💋 

Thank you for visiting my blog! ❤️

be the sunshine in your own life

      1. I would love to have you write about these three things:
        1. How being an introvert affected you in your demanding job.
        2. The transition from your demanding career into what you do now (what increases in happiness or lifestyle did you see).
        3. Any tips you would provide to someone who finds themselves in the shoes you were once in!

  1. Thank you so much for liking my Pond Sailing in Paris blog post. I am in the midst of starting a blog, finally for myself after blogging professionally for the fashion industry. It will be all about knitting and crafting. I know a thing or two about technology so I am in the process of making it all come together with social media. I read through some of your posts. You have a challenging life ahead of you! Your morning routine will ground and I power you. I admire what you are doing. Cheers.

  4. I’m not a SAHM (nor a mom), yet I find your blog so relatable! I work remotely and am sometimes amazed by the fact that I now have a wardrobe of yoga pants and ratty t-shirts to choose from (while my half designer wardrobe withers away on the hangers). It gets to the point where if I put a dress on, my fiancé is like, “WOW, you look amazing!” Keep up the great writing!

  5. Gosh we have a lot in common 🙂 I love crime tv too, especially British. Also US violent drama – I crocheted lovely christmas bunting one years while binge- watching Sons of Anarchy 😂 Love to stay in shape too, I run a lot, keeps relatively sane (@runmummarun74 on ig)
    I too am a highly strung, generally cheerful introvert who lives a place without much going on – I miss galleries and museums and big libraries so very much! Thankfully Sydney only an hour by plane , I only go once every couple of years to a city but grateful for each trip. In Dec am going to see Bon Jovi (again, lucky moi!!) Enough from me, must feed people (again!). Nice to meet you 🙂
