Nude and studding

I thought i'd make a bit of a special effort today as the boy is back in town. Make up wise i didn't want to wear alot as its so warm it just slides off so i just went for a bit of concealer and basic eyes and gloss.
I've had this dress for over a year now but never worn it, i have no idea why as i love it! The embellishment is really good quality for a dress that didn't cost the earth.

Reasons to be happy :)

I'm in a very sunny mood today! Why is that i hear you ask, wellllll lots of reasons :)

The weather is still beautiful but thank goodness its not as hot as it has been. My poor sister in law has her baby due in 2 weeks and is getting no sleep at all! The garden is looking gorgeous and its so lovely sitting out and reading.
In the last 2 weeks i've made about £140 on ebay and i still have loads more to sell. I've cleared out my shoes and have about 30 pairs to put on!
My lovely boy is flying home from his holiday today, we are going to spend the day tomorrow, i can't wait!
The bump is growing by the second it seems! This morning i was lying down looking at it and it was bigger on the right hand side where the baby was, really strange being able to see it, a bit Alien like!
What is making you happy today? xxx

I'm losing my marbles

I keep losing things! The latest is my camera, now i know it hasn't been out of the house but still i can't find it anywhere, its probably in the fridge or something. So i'll have to show my pretty new things using website photos.
The Topshop sale started today, i took advantage to get a couple of pretty maternity bits at a bargain price. I've ordered this dress

and this tunic for a total of £27 wooo.

I've been feeling a bit sad with Phil being away so wanted to get something impractical to cheer myself up, thats where these babies come in. I love the colour, can't wait for them to arrive! Hopefully they'll go with the topshop dress.I couldn't resist a hair bow in the same colour. If you have any ideas about where my camera might be hiding, please help!

Oh daddy dear, you know you're still number one

A post for all the dads in my life.

My daddy, an older parent(i was a late accidental baby!) who has managed to stay young and down sambuca and tequila with me at my brothers wedding. The person i call first for advice and who is ALWAYS right! You've given me so much love, i only hope i can be as good a parent as you.
My biggest brother Marc, first time daddy at 37 and the second due next month.
My other brother Warren, celebrating his first fathers day today with gorgeous Jake who is 6 months now.
I'm so proud of both of my brothers, they are amazing dads.

And finally, a daddy to be, Phil, who is possibly more excited about our baby then i am. Always touching and kissing my tummy and happy to be woken up in the middle of the night when i can feel bumpy moving around.

Happy Fathers Day xx

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

Its such a beautiful day! I hope everyones been able to enjoy a little sunshine today. I've been out in the garden all morning playing with the dogs and listening to Bob Dylan, but am inside now for a bit of a break from the sun. Its the perfect day to wear my new maxi dress.

It sounds like a train... baby's heartbeat that is. Saw the midwife today she managed to find the heartbeat so we got to hear it for the first time, only problem was baby kept wriggling away from her! After the appointment this afternoon me and the boy went to the park and people(and bird watched) it was so gorgeous but my arms and chest are a pretty shade of pink now.
I thought i'd do a quick outfit post for you.

A couple of buys

Lucky me, i got to go shopping for the boys clothes for his holiday today- yes thats right the lucky boy is off on holiday with his mates next week, leaving me at home, i hope it rains there and is sunny here!! We went to Leeds, its been a beautiful day weather-wise, i hope everyone else has been having sunshine too.
Now obviously i couldn't go to the shops without getting me a couple of bits. To be honest i'm dissapointed with the maternity bit in Leeds Topshop as its the tiniest section ever usually with just black/white vests and jeans, but my lovely man spied this for me. Its perfect, pretty, comfy, roomy and long enough on me to wear with jeggings.
I spied this in Primark, its huge though! I love that its not just a print, the chains are real and the bow is acutally a ribbon rather then just a print.
I went into H&M for me but we ended up spending ages looking at the baby clothes, Phil was more excited then me as the clothes in there are fab, he was putting little outfits together. Sadly it was mostly for boys or girls so we'll be going back when we find out next month. We did get this little tee, meant for a baby boy, but if i have a girl she'll be rocking it too.
What was the last thing you bought? xx

Ins and Outs

Belts- I've found they make me look pregnant rather then fat, a skinnyish belt just above the bump is perfect!

My bump- growing fast and i can feel baby dancing around now, its still tiny so it feels like butterflies inside at the moment. I can't wait for the kicks so that the boy can feel it too. Ohh and i'm off to see the midwife on Wednesday and if bumpy isn't hiding i'll get to hear the heartbeat for the first time.

Baking- relaxing and yum.
My lovely followers- yes thats you! When i get upto 300 i'll be doing another giveaway for you all.

Books- i've been speed reading lately, mainly chick lit for an easy read but theres nothing better then curling up with a good book.

Mary Queen of Shops-Love it, so glad the new series is on but the lady in the first episode was awful.

Stupid internet still not working properly.

The things they don't tell you about pregnancy- i'm not going to put you off by giving more info!

Goks fashion fix- this programme really annoys me for some reason, i still watch it though...
