Zvelte Elegant Plus Sized Rompers - Sweet bunny



I had always wanted to own a romper, as the outfit seem comfortable and stylish, rompers are usually made of materials that are not too thick which is perfect for the humid- tropical weather of Singapore. Unfortunately, I can never find my size in most retail brick and mortar stores or blog shops. I usually wear large in most places I shop at but usually for a person-sized between a UK size 10 and 12 it is difficult to fit a perfect fit for rompers as my hips and thighs are towards the curvier and thicker side.

I am glad that there is a growing number of Influencers on Instagram sharing body-positive messages online stores and emphasising the fact that clothes should be made to fit us and that we don’t have to have the perfect body to be able to wear nice clothes. My favourite Influencers to follow include Carrie Sim and Rhiannon Purchon as I liked the way they styled their clothes.

Plus Size Rompers in Singapore Online – I came across Zvelte’s website and found that their products get sold out rather quickly, I wasn’t surprised because their designs are simply lovely and elegant. . I spoke to the owner of the store on Instagram, She was friendly, attentive and patient as I bombarded her with questions. She also assisted with my queries on the measurements of the garments. She also shared the store’s values “At Zvelte, our main aim is to provide quality apparel to plus size ladies as we believe all women deserve to be beautiful regardless of size.” The store’s apparels range from Uk12 to Uk22 and are self-manufactured. Each design is also manufactured in limited quantities to ensure it is exclusivity. I found that the mid-thigh romper which Zveltes carries are more flattering for ladies such as me as it flows well against the body and emphasising the curves in the right proposition. I know most of us plus-sized ladies would shun away from jumpsuits and rompers because they don’t look good on us but rest assure Rompers from Zvelte are totally different because they were specially designed and made for us bigger size gals.

Zvelte Jenna Romper In Cream

 



During the National Day Sale, I grabbed the Jenna Romper In Cream, usually, I would avoid purchasing white as it not only stains easily but also makes a person look bigger but I was drawn to the lovely floral design and decided to take the plunge and purchase it. The quality is also top-notch well lined and not sees through like in most clothing stores that I purchased from online. I purchased a UK sized 12 which fitted me like a glove, at first I felt the ruffles were a bit too much as I do avoid them in most of my dresses from the fear of looking larger than I am but on the contrary, it gave the romper some details and is rather pretty to look at even in photographs.



Cheers to Zvelte and keep up the good work on creating lovely clothing, it has sure brought out the confidence in me.

Elderly-friendly meals from Health Food Matters for elderly who have trouble swallowing - Sweet bunny

Caring for our elderly parents is only second to nature; filial piety is a virtue that many hold close to our hearts. Love and honouring our parents and giving them the best we can just as they have done when we were children is what many have on the mind as our parent's age.

My mother passed on when I was 13 when there wasn't much I could do so when it came to my father, I strived to give him the best I could. As his cancer became more severe and he was on palliative care his appetite diminished, swallowing food became a daunting task for him. I wished I knew about Health Food Matters earlier rather than giving him ice cream and mashed up food for him not knowing if he was getting enough nutrition yes, he was drinking his supplement ensure milk but he was also getting very skinny, it wasn’t enough.

After extensive research online for food services, I finally found and contacted Health Food Matters, seeking urgent help for my father who was critically ill; he has stomach pains daily and was bedridden. I was afraid that he was going hungry and wanted him to have decent meals.



The Benefits of Meal Prep for seniors - Food has to look appetising and taste good as well to encourage the elderly to consume more than a couple of bites, the nutrition from food will help our loved ones stay healthy and strong. I wished I had known about Health Food Matters earlier rather than relying on catering food that wasn’t prep in the manner that was easy for my father to eat and chew. DeliSoft Meals are Halal certified naturally low in sugar ideal for diabetic, healthy and nutritious foods that are meticulously designed by the dietitian, chef, and food technologist from Health Food Matters.

Other factors to look out for elderly meal prep- Safety is most important as we wouldn’t want our loved ones to be exposed to contaminated food DeliSoft Meals use a special method of freezing to achieve this. The intricate balance of time and temperature is crucial to retain the delicate texture of our food, locking in the freshness and quality of the food as freezing is done as soon as the food is cooked. A love ones appetite might not be very good at the time food is being served during fixed meal times, being able to quickly prepare a meal for them when he or she is hungry according to their body clock would be an optimal way to ensure they get proper nutrition for the day.


It is best to contact Health Food Matters directly for more information as they are experts in their field and would be able to recommend the best meal plan and supplements for your loved one. The staff are helpful, kind and very knowledgeable on the dietary needs of an elderly person to the point where sometimes I wish the dietician in hospitals would offer a recommendation to the company directly rather than advising me to buy frozen dumplings to steam for my father or getting him to eat olive oil mixed with food.

Sponsored Review on Herbeco Collection of Herbal Teas - Sweet bunny

When I was young my parents would take me to the Chinese medical store in the neighbourhood to drink Liang teh ( cooling tea) or brew my favourite chrysanthemum tea at home. Herbal tea helps us to tone down the heatiness in our bodies. The Tropical weather in Singapore and an unhealthy diet and bad sleep habits contribute to this heatiness resulting in a person falling ill. The practice of drinking herbal teas during my childhood is much like the owner of Herbeco Stella Kiang, perhaps due to the Chinese culture or Malaysia being a neighbouring country.

Stella is a herbalist with a degree in Science, majoring in Biology and Chemistry, at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur and is a third-generation herbalist, she wishes to continue her mother and grandfather legacy and cultivate the next generation with the knowledge about local herbs to retain the local herbal species population in Malaysia.

I was contacted by Evelyn, a sales representative of Herbeco based in Singapore. Evelyn shared that she has a couple of ailments herself and would consume yellow cow wood and motherwort tea after finding how effective the teas were and an improvement to her health she became a distributor.


Jamaica False Valerian tea and yellow cow wood tea



She generously offered to sponsor me with 2 packets of tea, as I have shared with her that I have certain ailments with my skin keratosis pilaris and acid reflux due to irritable bowel syndrome. She gave me a range of teas to choose from and I selected the Yellow Cow Wood and Jamaica False Valerian.

The teas are packed in an elegant black zip-locked vacuum-packed bag, each pack consist of 13 sachets of tea. Each tea bag can be used up to 3 times.

Yellow Cow Wood Tea Cleanse Liver and Detoxify - Yellow Cow Wood (黄牛木) or Cratoxylum cochinchinense is traditionally used to reduce body heat, jaundice, flu, Hepatitis A & B and Gastroenteritis as the tea will help to dissipate dampness & relieve stagnation clear heat & remove toxin, dissipate blood stasis & relieve swelling,relieve heatstroke & slake thirst. 

The liver performs 500 essential tasks in the body as it is the largest solid organ and gland it is part of the digestive system and is tasked to detoxification the body, protein synthesis, produces chemicals that help digest food. A sign of liver function problems include yellow skin and eye Jaundice, your liver is not working well enough to break down a chemical called bilirubin when the build-up is too much in your blood, your skin turns yellow. Therefore keeping your liver healthy is paramount for good skin and health.

I was told by my mother that I had jaundice as a child and am currently facing some skin issues hopefully after drinking the Yellow Cow Wood Tea, my liver will get a good detox and my skin condition will improve. I just had a cup and felt very relaxed, I was worried if the tea would disrupt my sleep because I had the tea just before bedtime but thankfully it did not. The next day I went to the bathroom a couple of times, perhaps due to the detoxing effect, getting rid of the toxins and waste from my system.

Jamaica False Valerian Relief of Bloating, Gas Cramps & Stomach Discomfort - Jamaica False Valerian (马鞭草) or Stachytarpheta jamaicensis tea is a stomach tonic, to improve dyspepsia, asthma, allergies, ease fevers and liver problems.

Jamaica False Valerian tea is thicker than the Yellow cow wood tea and has a pleasant herbal fragrance and tasted not too bitter. Hopefully, with time the tea can help with my digestive system, strengthen my lungs and ease some of my allergies.

In conclusion, I liked both teas and as with Chinese herbs, it takes time to reflect the improvement in a person's condition as it focuses on the root of the problem. I would gladly bring this along to work with me to improve my health, it is convenient and all I need is a thermos flask to keep my tea warm to last me the day. Every time I pop in a tea back and take a drink I feel a very soothing effect within me, the warmth of the tea and the herbs are at work.
