Baby Shower Fun

Once I announced my pregnancy my friends were pretty adamant I should be having a baby shower. Honestly I wasn't too sure, I get very anxious about being the center of attention and lose sleep after being in groups worrying that I have said the wrong thing or manipulated the conversation. I am also awful at receiving presents, I enjoy watching people receive presents 1000 times more. But it has been a pretty crappy year (apart from baby girl gloriousness) and my husband convinced me that I should celebrate our daughter's impending arrival, so I agreed to have 30ish people enter our home for a showering of baby love.

Nursery Decor

Moving house while being pregnant possibly wasn't one of the wisest choices that I have made in my life, but as I am learning more and more as I get older there is no such thing as a perfect time. Sometimes in life you just have to take the plunge. Our first home was a lovely little two bed which suited us for five years and we can look back at fondly with memories of pre drinks and hung over breakfasts, but as our family has grown, from two to three and soon to be four space was something we started to crave. We moved in June and one of the first rooms that we knew we wanted to get finished was of course the nursery.

Let's talk about name claiming...

Name claiming is one of the most annoying things I have come across during the last 33 weeks of pregnancy. If you haven't come across this yet (wait until you are expecting you soon will) this is basically the opposite to people who have top secret baby names, like me. These are people who haven't even started trying to conceive however have told you 20,000 times already that their baby will be called 'James' and basically if you call your baby 'James' you will be struck off of any future Christmas lists in permanent marker.

Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil Review

Many moons ago I was a Clarins beauty therapist. It was actually the first job I had after college, I would travel around the West End providing facials and massages for the ladies who lunch. All in all the job was pretty good, I met some lovely girls and I got to play with all the new launches which was thoroughly enjoyable.

FriendsFest Chelmsford Review

When FriendsFest first made an appearance September 2015 in London I was beside myself excited and ready to get tickets however after roughly ten minutes it was all sold out. So when I found out it was making a comeback for 2016 I was not going to miss out again! 

Myself and the wonderful Alexandra headed down to Hylands Park in Chelmsford this Wednesday well and truly ready to get our friends on. Slightly more eager than anticipated we was there for opening time which handly meant less queuing in the burning sun, not ideal for a heavy pregnant woman.

Maternity Must Have's

So if you are pregnant, which you probably are if you are reading this, you will know that people are pretty keen on telling you what you must have to help you during pregnancy. I have been pretty strict with my spending over the last six months. During the first part of my pregnancy I didn't want to jinx anything by buying too much, and now I am so close to the end I don't want to buy too much that I won't use. However there are some things I have purchased which have been bloody good and I'm going to tell you about them now :)
