Velda Tan, style influencer and founder of Collate The Label has given birth to a beautiful little girl they’ve named, Ellery Grace Yap.
The proud mama took to Instagram to announce the birth of her little drop of sunshine, “My dearest Ellery, you are a living testimony of God’s immense love and abounding grace. We give thanks and praise for you, the joy of our hearts, and we look forward to journeying in life with you. ❤️ #ellerygraceyap”
At 18, Velda, alongside her sister, Viola and best friend Rachel co-founded the very successful, Love, Bonito – a fashion blogshop that took Singapore by storm and has since gained a massive loyal following. Love, Bonito set the standard for many other budding blogshops, quickly changing Singapore’s fashion blog landscape
Velda left Love, Bonito and later founded Collate The Label and Our Second Nature after setting up restaurant, Pince & Pints with her husband.
She has amassed a 153 thousand following on Instagram and we look at her flawless bump style from her feed. @belluspuera.
???? Reflecting on the year and all the beauty it has brought amidst the tough moments. 2017 wasn't easy both at work and in life. Buried myself in work and a ton of play knowing I had to eventually slow down & succumb to fertility treatments. I allowed my ambitions & the want for a baby to consume me and somehow lost myself along the way. But by God's grace I was granted my heart's desire and given a renewed sense of purpose. Along with it came an undeserving yet overwhelming amount of love. With that I started loving myself, my baby, and all the people around me. They say becoming a mom is life-changing; this truly is a pivotal moment in my life. I know that 2018 is not going to be without its challenges, but I feel like I'm in a better place and capacity to take on what is coming my way. And if there's anything I've learnt, it's that we all have an inner strength to draw from when the going gets tough. We just need to love ourselves to do so.
????points when you find a dress that lets you look non-preggers, even if it's only from the front (swipe right for reality lol). Wasn't quite intentional but am so glad our new collection has maternity-friendly options cos it's really quite a pain to get dressed these days! #32weekspregnant #collatethelabel
What they say about the 2nd trimester is true and it's so nice experiencing it! It's been such a dream- the increased energy, the happy hormones (I feel like nothing fazes me now), and the overwhelming amount of love that's building in me. ❤️ Now I kinda wanna slow time down and really enjoy this phase. #19weekspregnant #lovingit #dressingthebump . ????: @heyrozz thanks for the straight lines babe x
Majulah Singapura! ???????? So happy to be home to celebrate #sg52 after two short but intense work trips. Being away always reminds me how fortunate we Singaporeans are to enjoy little things like clean toilets and the bigger things like gender equality- privileges we should never take for granted. So so proud to call this country my home ❤️ P.S. the lil one's a size of an avocado now at #16weekspregnant (thus the ???? in hand)! Heh am so amazed at how high-waisted pants cover the bump so well especially from the front. Dressed in full @oursecondnature today!
