Nurseries

As soon as we found out the sex of our baby the nursery planning began in my head. I'm imagining lots of white and neutral with touches of pink and shabby chic styling.

Here are some pins from Pinterest I am loving

Bump Fashions

Lycra has well and truly become my best friend, my bump grows daily and Lycra accommodates the growing bump and leaves me feeling comfortable and cute. 

My favorite Maternity wear stores are


All offer affordable and on trend fashions. I wasn't keen to give up my style completely but I also didn't want to feel like a whale in tiny clothes. Finding cute and affordable clothes that have accommodated my growing bump with ease. 

My hot tips for pregnancy fashion would be
  • embrace stretch
  • stick to neutral colors so you can outfit repeat often
  • add accessories like beads, scarfs and cardigans to change simple outfits up
  • Smile, you will glow


Beads and scarfes have become a daily staple to dress up simple stretchy outfits
