After almost 10 years together my wonderful hubby knows very well how to make me feel special, as opposed to ‘materialistic’ gifts he prefers to shower me in ‘experiences’ which is so much fun every single time. On Saturday I celebrated my 32nd birthday (I can’t say I feel 32 at all!), it was a very cold and wet day and I woke up with a terrible cold which wasn’t really in line with hubby’s big surprise plan. He had booked me in for a relaxing pregnancy message at Endota Spa in the beautiful Adelaide Hills (yep, he is a true gem!), followed by a Dutch-style picnic lunch with the family. Oh well, you have to work with what you’ve got so I had my massage with a box of tissues within reach and afterwards we picnicked under a shelter, all warm and cosy in our winter coats. Another birthday to remember, celebrated with the special people in my life.
Cowl Neck Dolman Maternity & Breastfeeding Top (RRP $79.95) by Milk and Love
This comfortable Mothers En Vogue slouchy knit is getting a great work-out this winter. Originally I purchased this top when breastfeeding baby no.4 (and had already lost the baby weight) so it’s probably at tad too snug for this far into my pregnancy but it’s so easy to wear I can’t resist it. The asymmetrical design consists of a loose, over-the-shoulder knit and a nursing singlet in a matching colour to allow for discrete breastfeeding once baby is born. Made from a soft and stretchy bamboo/cotton blend it is lovely gentle against the skin. This season this style is available in three new shades so I may have to order a new one for when baby has arrived, I am leaning towards the pretty deep blue colour.
Jessa Denim Jean (RRP $129.95) by Ripe Maternity
These casual stonewashed jeans were the first maternity pants I purchased for this pregnancy, way back in the first trimester when I couldn’t do up my regular jeans anymore but didn’t want to give our secret away yet either. They are very supportive, stretchy in the right places, thick and warm and I absolutely love the over tummy knit waistband.
