WISH LIST WEDNESDAY | 16 AUG

Hello Lovelies!
Here is this week’s Wish List… Spring/Summer is dropping in stores and the weather in Brisbane is following suit! Trans-seasonal items are the best investment pieces at the moment while the days can be warm or cool, and the nights are still cool. Cute camis can be paired with shorts or jeans and layered with a jacket for warmth when needed. What girl can go past a bit of sparkle? The gorgeous embellished jacket from Sportsgirl and sparkly glitter espadrilles from Next will add something special to every outfit they’re worn with.

Zucchini Slice | Hiding Veges the Yummy Way

Do you struggle to come up with healthy lunchbox options other than sandwiches/wraps and fruit? Or do you need an easy way to add some jam packed protein and veg to your toddler’s diet? I have been making this Zucchini Slice for Bebe since he started on finger foods, it’s so quick to make and is a great way to use up left over veg. It’s also freezer friendly, so I often freeze lunch box sizes for kindy days.

WISH LIST WEDNESDAY | 9 AUG

Hello Lovelies!
Here is this week’s Wish List… I am already collating a list of the pieces that I will be investing in once Bub is here and I am in non-maternity clothes. Multi-purpose pieces that allow easy breastfeeding access and are forgiving for post-baby tummy are a must, and this gorgeous hued dress from Little Party Dress looks just perfect! The pretty print also camouflages lumps and bumps and the deeper buttoned neckline makes it perfect for bf. It’s definitely a hero piece and only needs some gorgeous tan accessories like easy to slide on (no hands!) sandals and a nice big tote that will fit all the extras I’ll now be carrying. Plus cute sunglasses, because eye bags are real in #MumLife!

Bebe’s Farm Themed Birthday Party

 

And just like that Bebe is five!

This year the theme was Farm (we do a theme each year) because Bebe LOVES animals. Gingham, plaid, red and animals were abundant… well maybe not the animals… being 8 months pregnant AND because Bebe invited is ENTIRE kindy class, we decided that a baby animal petting zoo would be the best entertainment for the party and unfortunately the company decided not to show up!

PLAY DATE TO DATE NIGHT |4 AUG

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you loved last fortnight’s Play Date to Date Night blog, featuring the Rosie Biker Jacket from She Street.

This week I’m styling the ‘LBBD’ Little Black Breastfeeding Dress from MammaBelle. Super versatile, super comfy and easily taken from day to night, this one’s for you if you just can’t get enough of BLACK. Featuring elasticised side ruching from waist to hem, an exposed zip that opens to reveal a hidden breastfeeding panel and perfect length sleeves, this breastfeeding friendly dress is the perfect addition to your maternity wardrobe and beyond.

 

PLAY DATE:

I love adding a chambray shirt over a maternity dress for an easy and effortless outfit. It covers any lumps and bumps, and adds a little warmth (I’m such a furnace that even though it’s Winter I rarely rug up!) and of course white kicks keep things fresh and my feet comfy!

Maternity Shoot with Family

Hello Lovelies!

Today I’m so excited to share with you some of the gorgeous photos from our maternity/family shoot with Kym Renay. Kym took newborn photos for Dianne (Mum Buns & Heels) and I’ve known ever since then that I wanted her to do our family photos and Bub’s newborn photos. Kym’s style is relaxed, candid and she has an amazing eye for photography, I’ve loved every single photo of hers that I’ve seen.

PLAY DATE TO DATE NIGHT |28 JULY

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you loved last fortnight’s Play Date to Date Night blog, featuring the Maddie Leopard Cardigan from She Street.

This week I’m styling the Rosie Biker Jacket from She Street. Yes I think it’s safe to say I’m currently having a love affair with She Street, but with affordable and gorgeous pieces AND fabulous customer service… why wouldn’t I?? I have a GIANT list of things I can’t wait to get once Bub arrives and I fit into non-maternity clothes! I fell in love with the Rosie Biker Jacket IMMEDIATELY. Pre-pregnancy I had maybe 3 different jackets, but they are the easiest way to change up maternity staples during a winter pregnancy so my collection has grown exponentially! The cropped length of biker jackets works well with my non-pregnancy shape, and also for all pregnant women so the Rosie caught my eye straight away. The embroidery on the sleeves sealed the deal and I had to have it!

I was a size 12 pre-pregnancy but with the weight gain that comes with growing another human I know tend to be a 12-14 but more a 14 with jackets as I put on weight around my bust and arms easily. I’m wearing the size 14 in the Rosie Biker Jacket and it fits incredibly comfortable (unzipped… there’s no zipping over this bump now!).

 

PLAY DATE:

This Bohoo Maternity Dress was an absolute steal at $16.00 and combined with the Rosie Jacket looks a lot dressier and more expensive! Worn with white kicks, this is the perfect coffee or park outfit (and due to the dress length it doesn’t matter if you haven’t tanned your legs!).
