32 Weeks Pregnant


I've just realised how similar this outfit of the day is to the last one...hahaha! Oops. I suppose this is what happens when you're in the final stages of pregnancy and you're running out of things to wear (or that fit!). I keep waiting for it to become proper summer/dress weather again but apart from one day this week it hasn't been warm enough. We do have a few formal events coming up next week which I will sharing my looks with you guys as sometimes those can be difficult when you're trying to accommodate a big bump! 

What I'm Wearing

Blouse - Mamalicious (I'm wearing a size medium)
Trousers - Next Maternity (last pregnancy, similar style in navy here)
Shoes - Pretty Ballerinas
Engravable bar choker in gold plated - Anna Saccone 
Bracelet - Van Cleef & Arpels
Leather Strap Bracelet - Louis Vuitton
Earrings (in rose gold) - Tiffany's
Watch - Michael Kors

Scary Blood Test! | What I Ate Wednesday


The first of these photos was taken in London near our doctor's office...that is not my front door, haha! Although I wish it was - it's so pretty! This particular Wednesday was a very busy one, in fact it almost broke my pregnant a*s (lol). First we had our OB appointment in central which took all morning and then I brought Emilia to the hospital for a blood test in the later afternoon. After that it was date night and I was so shattered I almost called it off but I do think one date night a week is important...so I powered through and just made sure I was in bed by 9pm! 

Part of the reason why I'm so exhausted lately (aside from the obvious, being 8 months pregnant!) is because I have been packing so much more into my day as I now wake up half an hour earlier to work out. I've been doing this five days a week for the past three weeks now and it has been working really well for me however it does mean that I had to modify my bedtime. Whereas I used to go to bed around 10pm I now go an hour earlier, and could probably go even earlier if I put my mind to it. Working out at 6am won't last forever because I know the new baby will take that freedom away from me but I'm enjoying it while it lasts and it has really helped make me more productive during the day. Hopefully when he gets into a bit more of a routine after the crazy newborn stage I can go back to this!

31 Weeks Pregnant


This post is very delayed (it was meant to go out on Friday!) but we had Emilia's ballet show last Friday evening and it was a rather hectic day. Fridays are also PE day for Eduardo so here he is in his PE kit, just after coming home from school very chuffed with himself eating his pombears! He really wanted to join in on Mummy's pictures which I thought was so cute! 

I know I've been wearing the same trousers a lot lately but I'm at that stage in my pregnancy where it's too late to shop for more maternity stuff so I'm afraid you'll have to bear with me for a few more weeks!

Too Much Stuff | What I Ate Wednesday


Today's What I Ate Wednesday vlog includes me showing my attempt to clear out a bit of our ever-cluttered basement. I really try to keep it organised but I think the basement & the garage are the messiest parts of our house no matter what I do! It feels like every time I move something or try to de-clutter, the next day more stuff somehow gets added or another pile appears. It's a never-ending story. We also get TONS of brand stuff sent to our PO box which can sometimes take weeks to organise and sort through. It can get a little overwhelming but I try to stay on top of it otherwise I think I would drown!

Since Wednesdays are typically our date night, this was my "date outfit" which you may recognise from before as I have worn a variation of this look a couple of times (when not pregnant!). See a very similar look here and here.

Interview with my 4 Year Old | Eduardo

 

Today's video is an interview with Eduardo and a bit of an update on life with him now that he's 4 years old! This little boy makes me laugh everyday...he is hilarious without even realising it which is definitely something he gets from his dad! I don't know anyone apart from Jonathan & Eduardo who can make me laugh the same way. He is sensitive, caring, loving and sweet. When we get one on one time he is an angel...I can't say the same for when his two sisters are thrown into the mix as he definitely knows how to drive me round the bend sometimes! Raising a little boy does not come without its challenges and he tests my patience a LOT but thanks to his dad basically being the same person all grown up, I'm learning more everyday about what makes boys tick. It's hard, I grew up with two sisters so I'm definitely more used to being a girls' mum! But I wouldn't change it for the world...boys are so special and I can't believe I'm about to be a mother to two of them!

What I Ate Wednesday {30.5.18}


Today's what I ate post is from our third day in Sardinia. I am debating on whether or not to change these blog posts and start phasing out the food pictures as they are rather repetitive. So instead of that I think I will do outfit of the day pictures instead, as that is what my blog is most known for. Let me know your thoughts on this...I am not stopping the What I Ate Wednesday videos, I just don't want to put up any redundant content. I did take some photos whilst on holiday which you can see below, so I've included them here but next week's post will probably just be an outfit one!

Makeup

Breakfast
Okay a little story/confession about the All-Bran as I featured it on my instastories and got quite a few questions about it! I ate this literally every single day when on holiday and I'll tell you why. Whenever I travel, I get constipated...not that bad but it's definitely worse when I'm pregnant! So this stuff reeeeally helps keep me regular! And actually I really like the taste, I know some people don't! I had mine with almond milk, sultanas & a few walnuts. I also drank a black coffee & water. 


Lunch
For lunch I had different things everyday but this time I got a Caprese salad with mozzarella, tomatoes, olive oil and fresh basil. To drink I had water.


Snack
Later that afternoon I got hungry again (I also did a pregnancy workout!) and had brought these Frusli bars from home. Before setting off I had packed two snack bags for the kids & anyone else who needed them...most of them got eaten but there were a few left so I had this apple & sultana bar along with half a bag of mixed nuts from our mini bar in our room! I try to drink lots of water when on holiday so I drank that pretty much all day. 


We ate dinner quite late that evening and it was in a restaurant called Belvedere which was one of the fancier ones in the resort. To start they brought a stuffed zucchini flower with ricotta inside...these are amazing! I was really proud of Emilia & Eduardo for trying theirs even though they didn't love it...I try to get them to try everything at least once. If they don't like it that's fine, but they need to try first! 

For my main course I ordered pappardelle with seafood and a pesto sauce, I honestly could not remember what fish was in this but I'm assuming there were prawns in there judging by our little friend on the side, haha! This was really good...though I was starving by the time it came as they left so long in between courses!

Dessert (not pictured)
For dessert we went to a pasticceria & ice-cream place and I got a cone of my favourite flavour which has always been pistacchio. The ice-cream in Italy is soooo good I think I ate this almost every single night!
