Pregnancy yoga

imagesCAP198T1
I started practicing yoga about a year ago. It was something i always wanted to get into and just never got around to, until my gym introduced a number of different yoga classes. I started doing a basic yoga on a Saturday morning and then progressed into Ashtanga yoga, which is a bit more strenuous and advanced. I also tried my hand at Bikram yoga, which is practicing in some 105 degree heat! I loved the feeling after the class, cleansed and revitalised, but i did find the session really hard! I did only go to one class in the end but thinking about it I might try to get into Bikram after ... Read More

Mamas and Papas nursery: Made with love

1 Apr

Made with love dream swing £89
When it came to finding out the sex of our baby there was no way i was not finding out!! We even paid to have a 4D sexing scan early as i could not wait any longer. (I am super impatient). Everyone is different of course, but for me it has made the whole preperation process a lot more exciting. There is so much more choice when it comes to clothes and decorating the nursery when you know if it is a girl or a boy. Plus the fact that yellow and cream is so boring!! Babies like a bit of colour too you know.

So after much shopping and surfing of the internet i finally decided on ... Read More

Accessories are great for pregnancy as it means you can jazz up your maternity outfit and there are no restrictions when it comes to the latest trends. Belts are especially good for this.

There is a craze at the moment in the world of maternity fashion for the Japanese waisted belt.

Serephine maternity do a version of this exact same belt, and i think it looks pretty cool; www.seraphine.com.  You can add it to pretty much any outfit to give it a little bit of an oriental ed ...

Miss Selfridge Black ankle leggings £12
Matalan leggings £6Black leggings are a staple of every girls wardrobe, and even more so if you are pregnant! You can just throw them on in the morning with a long knit and some boots with no effort whatsoever. Leggings are super comfy and if you get the right pair can also look great dressed up for the evening with some heels and a sparkly top.


I have lived in leggings throughout my pregnancy and i have been lucky enough to still fit into my original, pre pregnancy, styles. However, i have found certain brands alot more ... Read More

I just have to tell you about this excellent iphone/ipad cover site i recently found!! (I have just got a new phone after dropping my old one in a swimming pool, long story, and needed a new cover) If like me you love a bit of bling you will love this; www.dsdtyle.com. There are so many different cover designs it is actually very hard to decide which one to get! Prices vary, you could spend over £100 on a swarovski crystal case or just £15.99 0n a Python print style! Personally I like the Decora series, and have just purchased this silver one pictured! Not too pricey at £33.99 it looks supe ... Read More

My-wardrobe.com launches shoe lounge

24 Mar

shoe_lounge[1]
My-wardrobe.com has just launched its eagerly anticipated shoe lounge just in time for the new season. After browsing through the collection i have to say i could probably find a home for most of the styles; from Sam Elderman to Mulberry there is a shoe for every occasion and every trend.

Being pregnant i have to take into account the fact that heels are not the best idea, especially when ones sense of gravity has become somewhat distorted and when ones ankles are prone to swelling! I have therefore selected some of the more practical styles. They are still super yummy though ... Read More
