Baby Update – Meet Max!

Hi everyone!

Just thought I’d let you all know that I have had my little bundle of joy! He was born on the 17th January (which was his due date!) at 12:46pm. 

The labour wasn’t the best but I’ll write a whole post on that soon, when I have a free moment haha! 

Being a mom is literally amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I have been SO tired and I’ve only just started to feel slightly more alive these last couple of days since the birth but my little boy is such a sweetie – I can’t even imagine life without him now. What did I even do with my time before?! Who knows. 

Anyway, here he is being all beautiful as per. His name is Max Griffiths – I’m still not sure about his middle name so any suggestions are welcome!

Baby Bump Update – 38 Weeks!

So you know that you’re growing up when you go and buy a carpet in the January sales, instead of going clothes and make up shopping! The sales guy at Carpetright tried to guess when my baby was due.

Guess what he said?

April!

What?!

I am due in 2 weeks exactly! I’ve been told by lots of people my bump is tiny but I was only a size 6 when I got pregnant – I thought that this might have made me look bigger but clearly it doesn’t work that way haha ☺️

It feels like I’ve only just got used to being and looking pregnant and it’s going to be over anytime now! I’m kind of sad. Don’t get me wrong, I am uncomfortable a good chunk of the time, I have had terrible pains in my chest recently, as well as heartburn and it killsssss me. Not being able to put my shoes on properly sucks and I miss being able to eat and drink what I want but I love lots of things about it too. I love being able to feel him moving – his little wiggles and kicks (no matter how sharp they are and that they wake me up at 3am!) are amazing and are a constant reminder that he is real and is mine! I love being able to rub my belly and feel him kick back. It’s a bond that no one else has with him – we already know each other but we have never met. Even though instead of being in my tummy he’ll be here with me, I still feel kind of sad that this experience is almost over, especially as I think he may be the only little one me and my boyfriend have. 

Anyway, here’s an updated picture of me and my little bump. Also his 20 week scan picture as I haven’t uploaded one yet!

 
 

Today in a few pictures

I’ve had quite a busy day today so I thought I’d try to take a few photos! Quite tiring for a lady who’s 30 weeks pregnant but I like to be out and about rather than sitting in all day. 

I had college today. All of my deadlines are a month and a half before my classmates because my due date is the same week as normal deadlines! It’s quite stressful trying to get everything handed in on time and to stay organised but I think I’m doing okay! 

   

      

I live in Birmingham. I really like it here, I know so many people don’t. I think it’s got a lot to offer that’s often overlooked and I think if you know the right places then it’s a pretty cool place to live. I love living in the city too! There’s always something to do. 

   

  

  

We went for cocktails after college! I had a mocktail obv ;) it was called a Peach Melba and was bloody amazing. Who needs alcohol?! 

 

  

  

  

 And here’s our cute city by night time. I had a really good day today and I’ve spent it with good people!

Now I’m cooking a steak and I’m going to chill out and stuff my face hahahaha!

Hope you all had a lovely day

Update: I’m Pregnant, College, New House, OMG

Hey!

It’s literally been like, a thousand years since I’ve posted. That’s because this year has been totally crazy and so many things have changed – I just haven’t had time to blog and I’ve missed it way too much. I’m going to try to get back into it and post nearly every day like before.

So there might be a slight change in how I blog as I am due to have a tiny baby boy in January! He is going to be the most loved ever – there are so many people who are waiting to meet him, it’s so exciting to think I’m going to be a mom in 10 weeks time!

I’ve also moved into a new house, so I’m feeling pretty grown up right now!

Also, as if that wasn’t enough, I started college in September studying fashion again. So my life is pretty full at the moment! I can’t believe how many things have changed in such a short amount of time.

I just wanted to let you guys know where I’d been… If you’re still there?! I think my last post was February what the hell.

Here’s me being all chubby and pregnant haha!

1940’s Street Style

I think the 1940’s are definitely my favorite era for style – the clothes, hair, make-up & everything else. I love how glamorous and ladylike it looks, but then looks effortless at the same time, as if it’s not a high maintenance style (I’m pretty sure that it was though).  I much prefer vintage style to the present.

New Vintage Things! – Cake Stands, etc.

I’ve found a few cool things in charity shops lately. I think I’ve got some kind of cake stand obsession though… If I see one I HAVE to buy it. Like, I literally cannot leave it behind. Especially when they’re true vintage and super cute! Anyway I thought I’d show you what I’ve bought recently. Nothing cost over £3.99 and they are all seriously gorgeous and in awesome condition. I bought them all from different stores, including the milk jug and sugar bowl which is weird because they sort of match! Let me know what you think x

Halloween Decorations & Winston’s New Things

Happy Sunday!

Just went shopping to quickly pick up a few things for Winston (he hates the new food I bought him & seems a bit bored this week). I went to Wilko’s because they have some cute things for little pets! They also had a huge Halloween section so I picked up a couple of things to make my flat look a bit more festive for the month.
