After a horrendous first trimester of my pregnancy (when I basically existed with my head under a pillow), I have finally got back to reading in a big way- I have been devouring books at a crazy rate! I have read so many books that I am not including them all here because that would be boring. This post is dedicated only to the books that I have really enjoyed and would recommend to you, my darling readers!
Any recommendations for books that I have to read???
Meadowlands by Elizabeth Jeffrey (via Net Galley- available April 1st)
Searching for Grace Kelley by Michael Callahan (via Net Galley- Available January 27th)
There was too much bronzer and too many boney sternums at the Golden Globes last night and the dresses didn’t really wow me that much: I was a bit disappointed. However there was sufficient dress porn for a top five favourites of the night!

So we are having twins and I decided that I “need” a new diaper bag for all the extra stuff I will have to carry around. Need might be a bit strong but hey- I am hauling around 2 babies inside of me and I deserve a treat!!! I decided to start the search and OMG- the selection seems to have grown exponentially in the four years since Wee Man was born! I finally decided on this one and picked it up at an outlet mall when we were in Hawaii, but here are some other amazing options if you are in the market!!! As always, I tried to come up with a wide range of styles and price points to suit any mum-to-be’s personal style!
Being pregnant and lazy, this New Years Eve I will be wearing sweatpants playing Cards Against Humanity with a small group of good friends so I decided to live vivariously through Polyvore and put together a NYE look that screams chic, champagne and fun!
I hope you all have a fantastic New Years eve and have a cocktail (or three) for me!!!
This is my second pregnancy and while it has proven to be MUCH different from my first pregnancy (apparently twins = HORRIBLE morning sickness, at least for me!) there are a few things that have been such lifesavers during both pregnancies!!!
Prenatal Vitamins that don’t make you want to hurl- I am currently taking the Honest Company Prenatals and they work for me. I take them in the evening before bed so that they won’t make me feel sick at work.
A huge water bottle- Having one by your bed and on your desk is a must. I drink literally litres of water every day. It is a physical need- I have to do it and it is not a choice.
Maternity Underwear- I love these so much I could write them a love poem. Low cut in the front and bum covering. So comfy. I love the ones from Motherhood Maternity
A Body Pillow- My husband is envious of the attention my Snoogle gets. It is the one thing that makes sleeping in the last trimester and half bearable.
One great book- Some books are terrifying, some are silly and some just make you angry. It’s best to stick to one great and practical pregnancy handbook and not to rely on Dr. Google too much (I am as guilty of this as the next person, I admit) For this pregnancy, my bible is “Mothering Multiples” but during my first pregnancy, I loved “The Mother of All Pregnancy Books“. For your partner, I HIGHLY recommend “The Birth Partner“!
A fantastic pair of maternity pants- this time I splurged on a pair of black JBrands as my “good maternity pants”. They are pricey yes, but they work for the office, the weekend, going out etc so they are so versatile that they are worth it. A nice alternative to my more casual (and less expensive) maternity jeans from Old Navy and H+M.
Ladies who have been there, what was your pregnancy must?
