36 Weeks Photo Shoot

36 Weeks Pregnant Photo shoot


Hey my loves,
As promised I’ve come to share some bump photos with you guys, I’m currently sitting here on my birthing ball hoping this baby makes her appearance very shortly! Here’s to believing in the full moon!
These last few weeks are getting hard, contractions have started though my midwife believes I’m in slow labour and could take a week or more to progress... So send your thoughts this way!

Back to the photos, I had my photo shoot on Sunday 24th January I was 36 weeks pregnant! I’m so happy with the turn out, the photographer did an amazing job. I couldn’t be happier. He did his best to make me feel as comfort as possible in the comfort of our own home. (Also made us look flawless not a single stretch mark in sight!)

Hope you enjoy the photos I’ll leave his details below check out his online portfolio!







And her name is…….
Drum roll please…….

Too Faced Chocolate Palette

Too faced chocolate bar palette review


Hello my loves, happy Tuesday!
God the weeks seem to be flying by now. I’m starting to get excited for Christmas, I’m normally not a Christmas person I just look forward to our holiday (we normally go back to Portugal, but I’ll be too far ahead in my pregnancy to travel) But it’s just something about being pregnant that has really changed my views on a lot!
Anyways back to the makeup J
The other day I was feeling pretty crappy with morning sickness that lasts all day, yeah its decided to come back which isn’t fun! My husband sent me an email as I had headed to bed early and attached was an order to this beaut! I had mentioned months back that I really would like it, but with move and baby things makeup had to take a back seat. So as you can imagine I was over the moon.


I love the packing, it reminds me of naked 2 and 3 which I’m a huge fan of I love how you can just wipe it clean and it always looks nice. I think what makes this one slightly better is the magnetic close. When you open the packing you get a coco chocolate smell which at first was lovely but now turns my stomach.
When you open the palette it has inside 16 shades with a see through sheet with the names. Here’s my problem, for £45 I would expect the names to be printed on the tin itself I’m not a fan of those sheets! 


I’m a big fan of neutrals for anyone that knows me and I think no matter how many crazy shades I have I always go back to basics I think you can look pretty clown-ish with bright colours or that could just be me! They just don’t work on me… 
I resisted this palette for a while, I remember going into boots and swatching the shades and they felt pretty chalky, I think it was just from so many people touching it because I haven’t had that problem as of yet and that’s the first thing I checked when it fell through the mail. I think out of all my palettes this is quickly turning into my favorite its just so easy with every shade you could possibly need. So I think this will be the one I travel with next.


Pretty right? I honestly don’t think you can go wrong.

35 Weeks Update

35 weeks pregnant

Hello loves,
I know I’ve disappeared off the grid lately but my maternity starts now so I’m hoping to have more time to update you lot and share my beauty products. I haven’t bought anything lately like the past couple of months money has gone on house and baby but in a way I couldn’t be happier. Her nursery is nearly finished I’ll be sharing that within the next week or two need to get hubby to put up blind curtains and a shelf for her stories!

So my pregnancy is coming to an end?!?!?!?
Can you believe it?
I can.
 I’m so ready to have this baby now. Only a week and half till we are considered full term.
So any tips on starting labour please share…

Someone asked me the other day if I was going to miss being pregnant I honestly can say I won’t, I feel so blessed to be pregnant but no one told me it was going to be this hard!!! It’s like someone thought oh you want to be pregnant and sent all the horrible side effects with it. I’ve been struggling to walk and have physio every other week. Though they say same thing all the time. Sorry not much we can do at this stage in your pregnancy. She’s now engaged and ready to go and this has helped with pain, before the way she was sitting was right on top of my sciatica nerve making it unbearable to walk sit in fact do anything I spent many hours bouncing on a ball trying to move this little one. Just like her a dad hard to please!
I will however miss watching my belly move and see the look on my husband’s face when he feels her foot or elbow sticking out. On the other hand I can’t wait to meet her see her little face fall deeper in love every second I look at her. I can’t wait to finally see him hold her, I know his dying waiting for her arrival.
This weekend I will be having my photo shoot I can’t wait to share the pictures with you soon.
I will then be sharing her name…
So a couple of things to look forward to within the next weeks if she doesn’t make an appearance. My brother girlfriend was due a week after me and she gave birth on the 30th December 2014 to a beautiful baby girl, it makes it all so much more real when I go visit her and I can’t wait till they have her home.
