French Connection Maternity

9 May

French Connection maternity jersey V-neck jumpsuit £87

Since becoming pregnant i have often wondered why all stores do not have a maternity range that is simply an adaptation of their normal fashion range. Surely it is easy to pick some of the latest new designs and add some ruching or extra panels to the sides? Some stores have been successful at offering some nice maternity clothes, don't get me wrong; Topshop, Dorethy Perkins, H&M is OK, but they do not have a great turn around in terms of styles. It seems they have a maternity range that lasts for months, and only add a few pieces seasonally, nothing like the turnaround ... Read More

k Jacques St Tropez zebra sandals £190
I need a shopping fix! I am beginning to get slightly depressed by the fact that i cannot enjoy regular shopping trips like i used to, i really cannot wait to get my figure back and hit the high street big time!!

Pregnancy is a time in ones life when you cannot get really excited about shopping, simply because there is not so much choice when it comes to cute dresses and tailored shorts, damn that bump!  However it is essential to keep in mind that this is only temporary, and in the meantime you can still get your fashion fix in other areas, like accessories!

Camden: A fish pedicure, Gilgamesh and shopping!

26 Apr

I had a lovely day on Saturday with my soon to be sister in law! She treated me to a fish pedicure and lunch at the yummy Gilgamesh in Camden. Afterwards we (of course) spent a few hours shopping in the stables, there is so much to see there we could have literally spent all day!

So, first off the fish pedicure. I was quite excited about this, but at the same time not really sure what to expect! We arrived at the salon, had our feet sprayed with disinfectant and then place them in individual tanks filled with hundreds of little fish. They immediately swarmed our feet and star ... Read More

Stretchmarks: prevention and treatment from Silderm

13 Apr

Pregnancy results in a number of annoying conditions, one of the most worrysome is the dreaded stretchmarks! They say that the likelihood of you getting stretchmarks is mostly down to your genes, so if your mother got them you probably will too. However, i strongly believe that you can definately help to reduce their appearance, and maybe even prevent stretchmarks all together, with a little help from a friend.

In this instance my friend is Silderm - 'Beauty through Science, clinically proven for stretchmarks.' Silderm is similar to the more popular brand, Bio Oil (i must admi ... Read More
