We had the dreamiest escape to the country last weekend, with a good mixture of fun, music and dancing at a festival – along with some much needed recovery downtime for this pregnant mama-to-be – with lots of eating, relaxing and breathing in the fresh Oxfordshire air (and I do mean it when I say there is something very special in the air in this particular part of England)…  Continue Reading

I have mixed feelings towards August… For one, it’s the first month which is leading towards Autumn, which on the one hand means a new season, new beginnings… But then on the other hand, it also means summer is soon over. For once, the latter doesn’t bother me so much, as I am still finding myself wishing the time away for our baby to arrive and to start so many new beginnings. Yet, I am still holding on to that summer feeling, and already finding myself dreaming about my summer wardrobe next year (when my body will be very different then what it is now). So I have compiled a little mood board for you guys, to show you all the things which is inspiring me right now, from fashion, hair, interior, food and general mood.  Continue Reading

As I’m not doing so much travelling abroad at the moment (for obvious reasons), I am making the most out of our beautiful country and having lots of mini staycation escapes instead! We just came back from Oxfordshire on Monday (more on that trip next week), and have otherwise been to Dorset, Hampshire, Hastings, Dorset and Buckinghamshire. With all of this, I feel like I’ve certainly managed to master the act of keeping it relatively easy and light when it comes to packing – especially when it comes to my toiletries (one which I am known to normally go way overboard with in terms of always packing way too much)… So I thought I would share some of my current go-to favourites with you guys – with all my core get-away beauty essentials…

BABY DIARIES #3 | WHY I’M GOING SUGAR-FREE IN THE THIRD TRIMESTER

August 3, 2017

Whoever said pregnancy was easy? I know I for one have had my fair share of ups and downs (as you might have already gathered!). But in general, since discovering we were finally pregnant (and minus the standard first three months with tiredness and sickness) – I have absolutely loved the pregnancy so far! Sure, I have had a bad back, sleep hasn’t been the easiest, the struggles with getting used to your ever-changing body shape, declining cardio levels and constantly feeling like a baking hot oven… But who cares? I literally cannot wipe the smile off my face, and just feel so incredibly lucky to be carrying a healthy baby boy. But then as with most pregnancy and it’s many (many) curveballs – I had a bit of shock news a few weeks back… Continue Reading
