BABY DIARIES #7 | THIRD TRIMESTER UPDATES

October 7, 2017
baby-1 (1 of 2)

I am not going to lie, the third trimester has not been the easiest. Or, let me re-phrase that just a little bit – the last few weeks have not been the easiest. And it’s hard not to just focus on that, when I am in the middle of what is in my opinion, the hardest part of the pregnancy. I say ‘hard’ – as I am just days away from giving birth (hopefully just day, and not weeks – but who knows), and never have I felt so strange, swollen, sore, tender, heavy… Suddenly my bump has reached it’s maximum limit and space, and day-to-day things such as walking, breathing, sleeping, are becoming increasingly harder. When all of that said, I am of course so happy and positive as well – as I know I will soon be meeting my precious one, and we will finally be a family.

AUTUMN SUNSHINE

In my opinion, I don’t think there’s much that beats that first proper, crisp and sunny Autumn day… Don’t get me wrong, Summer is heaven – but after a long hot season, that special change of air, is definitely a welcoming delight. And I think perhaps that the transition to Autumn from Summer, is my all-time favourite seasonal switch… The colour change of the leaves, the beginning of the slightly cooler weather, the layers… Oh, and the fact that you can still get away with brights and transitional wardrobe pieces (point example in today’s blog post!).  Continue Reading

A YEAR ON: UPDATED HOME TOUR, PART 2

October 2, 2017
hometour-2 (26 of 48)

Following on from Part 1 one of my updated tour, I am super excited to share with you the rest of the house – with the remaining of the first floor, with my walk-in-wardrobe, and moving up to the second floor, with another two more bedrooms and a bathroom. To shortly recap from the first post, I decided to do this updated tour, following on from the original Before & After Home Tour I posted shortly after we’d just renovated – as after living here for nearly 5 years, things have naturally changed slightly and the home just feels a lot more lived in and well, homely. Hope you think so too!

DATE NIGHT IN THE CITY

September 25, 2017

With my due date fast approaching, so many friends and family around us have been telling us to make the most out of the last few weeks as just us two. Although obviously, we cannot wait to meet our little man – it’s going to be a huge change in our lives, going from being just the two of us for over 9 years together (!), to starting a life as a trio. And whilst I have naturally been taking it a lot more easy in terms of slowing down with work and daily life in preparation for this huge life-change – a few weeks ago we decided to have a little last minute staycation in the city. Saturday night out, getting dressed up and going for a romantic dinner, just the two of us.
