Pinktober : Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Salam ladies! It's pinktober which is breast cancer awareness month. Ok serious question, how many of you have ever checked yourself for any signs of breast cancer? If you think you're too young to get breast cancer, think again.

As women, it is very important to take care of our body, but how do we do that if we don't even know what's going on inside of our body? That is why early detection is crucial and and may just save your life/life of your loved ones.

So ladies, get educated about this disease and spread the awareness! Spreading awareness can help other women to check themselves for breast cancer through a few easy steps or tests.


1) What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too.

2) What are the risk factors that causes breast cancer?

Risk factors that cannot be changed
• Being a woman
• Increasing age
• Early menarche (start of menstruation) before age 12
• Late menopause (stop of menstruation) after age 55
• Family history of breast cancer
• Personal history of breast cancer


Risk factors that are lifestyle related
• Having had no children or late pregnancies after age 35
• Oral contraceptive use
• Hormone replacement therapy
• Alcohol consumption
• Obesity and high-fat diets
• Physical inactivity

3) Detection methods and seeking appropriate treatment.

• Ensure that you do Breast Self Examinations (BSE)
every month.
• Encourage those over the age of 40 to go for a mammogram.
• Immediately have them see a specialist should there be any abnormalities
discovered during a BSE or mammogram.
• Obtain more information and seek out support from groups, friends and
the community.


4) Are there any preventive methods?

A nutritious, low-fat diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing
breast cancer. A high-fat diet increases the risk because fat triggers estrogen production that can fuel
tumour growth.


5) What are the myths about breast cancer?

All breast lumps are cancerous
• 9 out of 10 of these lumps are not cancerous (benign).
• However, it’s best that you check with your doctor right away if you do
find a lump.
I am not at risk because no one in my family has breast cancer
• About 10% of all breast cancer cases have a hereditary factor
• Hence, that leaves 90% of cases without family history.


PRIDE FOUNDATION 

PRIDE FOUNDATION  (Pink Ribbon Deeds) is a charity body incorporated on 24 May 2006 under the Companies Act (1965) as a non-profit company limited by guarantee governed by a Board of Trustees. The incorporation is a tribute to the late Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood’s courage, resilience and strength in her fight against breast cancer.

Fuchsia Flare


Can you believe how fast time flies? I'm already 32 weeks today Alhamdulillah! Before you know it, my husband and I will be welcoming our second baby into the family, insyaAllah!! I'm happy and nervous at the same time. Thinking back on my first experience is giving me mixed feelings. But I believe in Allah's plan and put my trust in Him. InsyaAllah everything will be ok. According to the last scan, we're having a girl this time tehee^_^ but sometimes scans have proven to be wrong so you never know!

If it is a girl, I can't wait to dress her up in cute little tutu dresses and LBD's! haha. I think it's just natural to dream of dressing a mini you, right? Anyway, It's been quite some time since my last outfit post, no? When you're heavily pregnant, it really is hard to look decent or find something that doesn't make you look like a whale, if you know what I mean(no offence to whales). Most of the time I feel most comfortable in a maxi dress because it's easier to move and work in.

This maxi dress from Misclaire is one of my favorites because it has these cute ruffle sleeve details. Kinda makes me want to just twirl and do the salsa for no reason. I've said this many times, I'm not a fan of pink though(because I think it's just too girly for my personality) so as far as girly goes, fuchsia is my best bet. I just love this site because it's an online website that caters for plus size women. If you often can't seem to find anything fancy in your size. Just head over to Misclaire and you'll find a variety of plus size clothing ranging from maxi dresses, skirts, jackets, pants and so much more!





Hope you have a lovely and productive week and remember to keep me in your duaas!:))

Momma Mia!


Salam semuaaa! Apa khabar??! My apologies for the long hiatus. Been hibernating these past few weeks. Mengandung kali ni rasa kurang aktif nak bersosial ataupun update blog. Tapi hari ni rasa terpanggil nak share pasal susu MOMMA that I recently was introduced to.

Sejak kebelakangan ni asyik experience kaki cramp, lenguh-lenguh badan dan agak letih. Itu antara tanda tak cukup calcium, betul tak? Salah satu sumber makanan yang kita boleh ambil untuk tambah calcium selain sayur-sayur hijau, ikan dan sebagainya, tentulah susu! I'm actually a big fan of dairy products tapi mungkin dairy products yang saya dok makan selama ni banyak bahan tambahan yang tak menyihatkan kot?

Selain nak kuatkan otot dan tulang and also to provide cukup calcium untuk anak dalam kandungan, lepas bersalin akan start menyusu balik kan, so produk ni boleh jadi milk booster tau! I did a little research and thought I'd share with you my findings about this product. So here goes! Jom kita baca apa khasiat susu MOMMA ni!



MOMMA adalah produk susu bernutrisi yang dapat membantu ibu mengandung atau menyusu untuk kekal sihat dan cergas dan dapat membekalkan nutrisi yang lengkap buat anak dalam kandungan atau anak yang disusui. Di samping meningkatkan penghasilan susu ibu.

Tidak seperti produk lain yang berada di pasaran, MOMMA adalah Susu Kesihatan & Kecantikan 4 dalam 1 yang PERTAMA di Malaysia yang merangkumi 4 aspek penting bagi setiap wanita yang bergelar isteri dan ibu :

2. Sihat : Membantu memberi kesihatan yang baik dan merawat stress.
3. Bertenaga : Membantu memberi tenaga segera buat ibu-ibu yang sering keletihan.
4. Bijak : Mengandungi bahan-bahan yang dapat membantu meningkatkan perkembangan otak bayi


Diperbuat daripada Formulasi RAHSIA dan TERKINI daripada campuran 12 bahan SEMULAJADI termasuk bahan-bahan sunnah yang berfungsi membekalkan nutrisi yang lengkap bagi memenuhi keperluan ibu dan bayi.

5 dari 12 bahan semulajadi yang digunakan telah TERBUKTI BERKESAN dapat membantu meningkatkan kuantiti dan menambah kepekatan susu ibu.

Kesan semulajadi dapat dirasakan jika diamalkan berterusan selama 7 hari. Selain diperkaya dengan pelbagai nutrisi dan rasa susu coklat yang sedap, tidak berbau hamis,

MOMMA juga adalah susu rendah lemak dan TANPA GULA.

Mengandungi DHA, Asid folik, tinggi kalsium. Siapakah yang sesuai mengambil MOMMA sebagai minuman berkhasiat tambahan..?

[✔] Wanita yang merancang untuk hamil
[✔] Ibu hamil yang mahukan yang terbaik buat si anak.
[✔] Ibu yang menyusukan anak



Kenapa, dan apakah perlu ibu mengandung/menyusu mengambil makanan berkhasiat?

Pengambilan diet pemakanan yang sihat dan berkhasiat penting untuk si ibu dan juga bayi. Pemakanan seharian yang seimbang sangat penting, tambahan lagi bagi ibu yang mengandung atau menyusu, semua makanan dan minuman yang kita ambil juga akan turut disalurkan kepada anak.

Justeru,sangatlah penting bagi ibu-ibu hamil atau menyusu mengambil makanan/minuman berkhasiat untuk keperluan tubuh si ibu sendiri & juga anak.

Memahami keperluan dan masalah yang sering dihadapi oleh wanita yang ingin hamil, ibu mengandung dan menyusu, susu dari formula gabungan bahan ektraks semulajadi iaitu

Zaitun, Kismis, Omega 3, Delima, Buah Tin, Habatus Sauda, Susu Kambing, Kurma, Madu, Safron, Inulin (prebiotic) dan Coklat dihasilkan bagi memastikan para ibu mendapat khasiat semulajadi.

Sekarang jom kita baca pulak testimoni-testimonial pengguna MOMMA:

"Selalu tgh hari dapat 7oz plg byk..arini dpat perah 12 oz, tu pon kalo ade botol lg, sy boleh dpt lg.." Pn Syahilah

"hai... i nak order lg susu blh.. susu ni memang powerlah....my milk booster....anak i kenyang sampai mls nak bergerak lepas menyusu je...." Pn Shal

"Alhamdulillah...serasi.susu banyak, pastu badan pulak x letih" Pn Norazilah

"Mula-mula minum MOMMA lambat nampak hasil sebab mungkin puasa kot. Tapi bila ikut cadangan sis untuk ambil masa sahur dan berbuka then nampaklah kesannya. Sebelum ni selalu pam dapat 5-7oz then bila susu kurang saya try MOMMA , sekarang alhamdulillah. Banyak jugaklah, dalam 10oz macam tu dapat" Pn Dina

"Salam sis. Alhamdulillah semenjak minum MOMMA air susu tak putus. Even bulan puasa ni saya pun dapat berpuasa penuh. tak risau pasal air susu. Badan pun lebih bertenaga. Tq sangat sis.." Pn Fina


Annnnnddddd yang penting sekali, produk MOMMA ni mendapat HALAL Jakim dan diiktiraf selamat oleh KKM. So tak perlu risau or was-was lagi!

Denim Galore


I've always been a big fan of denim ever since I could even remember. There's just something about it that appeals to all ages and style preference. Perhaps it's also the fact that denim is not only comfortable to wear, it's one of the most long-lasting, tear-resistant material there is. Not to mention it never goes out of style!

So I came up with 3 different themed looks from my favorite GUESS denim that might give you ladies some ideas how to pair your denim in a more creative way! So here goes!

1. Romantic Dinner

For this occasion, of course you want to go with something sweet and feminine. But being the not so girly-girl that I am, I always like to add a little spunk to my outfit through vibrant colours! So what I did was I paired my Charlotte denim shirt with a neon shirt underneath and rolled up the sleeves to give it a little pop of colour. Finished the look with an electric blue skirt, neon necklace and a printed clutch!

What I love about this Charlotte shirt from GUESS is it's beautiful faded colour and it's light material. When I was out to dinner with hubby in two layers, I still felt cool despite the hot Malaysian weather!
Oh and I love that it doesn't have those clip on buttons and uses these button instead. Give it a nice neat finish.

Feminine, yet not too girlish. Just the way I like it! :)







2. Night Out Party With Friends

For my second look, I was thinking of something simple yet glamorous. And nothing shouts 'GLAM' more than some sequins! All girls love things that are shiny and sparkle, yes? So I paired my Kate Capri white jeans with a white shirt, matching black hijab, heels and clutch. Topped it off with a sequin jacket and I'm ready to party!

These white jeans really appealed to me because of it's cut. It has a low cut and is a little shorter than the normal boot cut or skinny cut. It's suitable for people like me who aren't very tall(157cm!). Plus it let's me flaunt my super gorgeous heels! Tehee!


 A little bling never hurt anyone:P





3. Music Festival

When going to an event out in the open and with a big crowd, you are bound to to feel uncomfortable. So you wouldn't want to wear something that makes you even more uncomfortable. So my choice would be something laid-back and loose, making it easy to move around feel breezy. I wore a printed top paired with my Charlotte shirt worn as a jacket and neutral colours for my hijab and bag. A sling would be best because you wouldn't have to hold it all day!

I love how versatile this shirt is and how it can be mixed and matched to suit any occassion, really! You could even pair it with a pencil skirt and wear it to work! The pockets add seams make it even more cute!
 
 
 

Laid-back and comfortable is the way to go!


It was fun playing dress up and coming up with these looks using my GUESS denim. Perhaps in the future I'll create more looks featuring denim pieces because it is SO VERSATILE. Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments section!:))
