Travel whilst pregnant 

Being 22 weekend pregnant my husband and I decided we would take the opportunity to go on a baby-moon which is essentially a holiday whilst pregnant to just be a happy couple and have a bit of us time.

When me and Andrew first got together we went to Venice for our first holiday and it was great although we stayed in a hostel so wasn’t as romantic as it could have been so we decided to go again but this time stay in a hotel. It was much better. We stayed for 4 days 3 nights and really enjoyed it

Before we set off I made sure the travel insurance we purchased covered us should something happen involving my pregnancy and photocopied my pregnancy notes. I even bought flight socks which as I’ve never used any before I can say they are actually surprisingly comfy and my legs didn’t feel quite as “heavy”.

Whilst away I had growing pains once a day for about half an hour and Henry had a growth spurt or more accurately I did. I woke up the day after getting there and my stomach seemed to have sprung out of nowhere but apparently that’s a thing that happens…. Something else which provided entertainment is it was whilst away on this romantic getaway my breasts decided to start leaking clear fluid… Why is pregnancy so God damn sexy!

Packing was a bit hit and miss I wish I had brought lip balm and a different moisturiser for my stomach. It was that cold being January and all, I didn’t wear any of the nice clothes I packed and ended up wearing as many layers as possible and my coat the entire time!

Andrew was really patient with me which was amazing he didn’t rush me and constantly reminded me to go and pee before we left anywhere. Was always there to rub my back when Henry decided to push or pull or whatever it is he has been doing on the inside. So all in all it has been an amazing and very enjoyable trip. I just need a holiday now to recover from this holiday ha ha 😂






Fashion Spring 2015


2015 is going to be very big on a number of things including the following:

  • Black and white.
  • Culottes.
  • Kimono style long jackets.
  • Shirt dresses.
  • Yellow.

Here are just a few images that i have pulled up from various sources, that are good at describing my own interpretations of the new trends. This year there are definitely 70’s vibes going on with flares and polo tops but if i was going to do a blog post about everything on the catwalk this season it would be about 3000 words long and no one wants that!

I just want to make it known now tho that Culottes are hideous… on EVERYONE. (That is all)

  I love black and white with a pop of colour, its classy and timeless. You can wear it out, dressed down and at work, its universal.

Kimono’s are good at keeping away the chill, keeping you stylish and not overwhelming you with warmth on those mysterious hot days i have yet to experience.

I am pretty undecided about shirt dresses, i think they look really good on a lot of people but i just don’t like them on me.

Anyway, so yea just thought i’d update you with were i was in relation to the whole spring deal…
