Pregnancy Throwback Haul

In the Summer of 2014, I filmed this haul video for YouTube when I was about 20 weeks pregnant with Heath. I never had the courage to upload it and it is strange to watch it back now because I can see how nervous I was talking to the camera.

I edited it today and thought I would share it now because it is really nice to see my bump again. As broody as it makes me to watch, I just can’t imagine having to go through pregnancy, birth and the newborn stage again.

Sometimes I wish I filmed more videos during my pregnancy because it is always nice to relive the good experiences but I know that I just wasn’t ready to film and share that part of my life publicly. It is a shame but maybe that will encourage me to capture our memories going forward.

I thought I would mention too that I ended up taking the Motorola MBP36 Video monitor back as I saw the Angelcare AC1100 model on offer for an amazing price not long after I had purchased it. At the time, I blogged about it here.

To be honest with you, we have never used the sensor pad and barely used the monitor. I think, second time around, our lifestyle had adapted to life with children so much that the only time we used the monitor was when we were in Cornwall and Heath was asleep upstairs and we couldn’t hear him downstairs. Admittedly, the battery life was much better with our previous BT monitor and I rarely needed to use the video functionality. I would recommend a video monitor to a first time parent but probably not to those of you with children already.

What do you think about my Throwback Pregnancy Haul video? Can you tell I was nervous too? Let me know. Bx

Day toNight OOTD

Day toNight… Do you like what I did there? 😉 In my recent Primark Mummy Haul I mentioned that I was on the hunt for a pair of wet look leggings and hurrah, I have found quite a few. This inspired me to create a Day to Night OOTD as it is my birthday this month and this is the type of Autumnal outfit I would like to wear all day… And night!

Day To Night

Leather Look LeggingsWhite Cable Knit JumperFringe Ankle Boots, Black and White Blouse, Quilted Cross Body Handbag, Rimmel Kate 30 Lipstick

The leggings I chose were from New Look as not only were they high waisted which is ideal for us mummies who aren’t quite comfortable in low rise trousers but they are really reasonably priced. I decided that wet-look leggings are not the type of thing I would splurge on as I probably would only wear them in to town or on a night out. Let’s face it, it’s not the type of thing you would wear to baby sensory is it?

I absolutely adore this Cable Knit Jumper from Topshop. It looks so cosy and perfect for snuggling on all these colder days we are having at the moment. Underneath, I have chosen this Black and White Blouse from Dorothy Perkins but I should warn you that they have a promotion at the moment and it seems to be selling out quick. If you like it click through ASAP.

I have chosen the following three accessories as I think they can be worn all day. The Ankle Boots have fringe detail to glam up your look and the handbag is small enough to carry around if you’re out with the kids and a buggy. Lastly, to glam up your look, I really recommend this shade of lipstick from Kate Moss’ Rimmel collection. It featured in my recent Blogtober post.

I hope you like this Day to Night OOTD as much as I do. I think it might be a bit daring for some people and I definitely think I would need a bit of confidence to wear it but if you do find the courage, I am sure you will be a gorgeous little head turner. Let me know if you try it out or have done in the past. Bx
