This is me. Less than a month after I gave birth to son. Not bad, hey?

Now I'm back in my old skinny jeans! Not bad at all. I'm aiming to lose a few more pounds - back to my wedding weight again :P Got more toning up to do!

En Garde Artilleries - In Love, and War Part 1

How proud am I to write about this one as my brother is the mastermind behind this project - En Garde Artilleries "IN LOVE, AND WAR PART 1"

Here's the story:

The idea was conceived in 2008 by Narya who had always wanted to create his own line of jewelry for men. The name ‘En Garde’ just came out of nowhere and it has been his pet project’s name ever since. ‘Artilleries’ is added sometime later to replace the word ‘jewelry’.

Swords and firearms may be the most standout ‘accessory’ worn by many men of the past, however, today the term ‘artilleries’ may refer to something completely different. This is why, and how En Garde Artilleries was finally born in 2010.

En Garde Artilleries fuses history, romance and film noir into a collection of handmade jewelry - combining different materials such as metal, wood and acrylic to create masculine yet still unisex, sophisticated pieces.

"Battle Royal"



"The Crusades"

A New Beginning

I know I've been MIA the last couple of weeks, well, make that months. A lot has been going on. But one thing that has kept me so occupied is preparing for the birth of my baby. And on August 26th 2010 I gave birth to my first son, Aidan Avanindra Hakim, through normal birthing. The labor itself was pretty easy thanks to hypnobirthing and pilates. No unnecessary swearing and screaming. Everything went really peaceful as my husband and I welcomed our new bundle of joy into the world:
