All the Frills: One Month Old!

Obviously Eleanor is older now, but I couldn’t resist sharing these photos of her at one month – I mean, how adorable!

Leopard Woes

I ostensibly stopped in at H&M recently to buy a new pair of maternity nylons in June (they’re cheaper there than just about anywhere else) and totally got mesmerized and drawn into the web of this leopard jacket. I seriously have a leopard problem…

Comfort First, Part 2

Like the Birkenstocks I featured in my last post, these Toms were also one of the few pairs of shoes that I could comfortably wear back in mid-June. And, honestly, even they were starting to feel really tight by the end of the day. I was compensating somewhat for my misery by wearing this green cardigan (as I’ve remarked a few times here, green is my favourite colour next to black) ... you know, just so that I didn’t look totally grim. Although I think the expression on my face belies that attempt.

All the Frills: Makeshift Baby Space

So, while we do have a full nursery set up on the second floor of our house (by our bedroom), we fairly quickly realized that, when we were on the main floor (where the kitchen and the TV and the couch are), it was a huge pain to have to keep running up and down the stairs to do diaper changes, get clean blankets and onesies, etc. So we cashed in some accumulated air miles and got this little playpen, change table, crib combo. And because Eleanor doesn’t show much interest in sitting in the fancy vibrating chair we got for her, we’ve been using it as a place to store extra clothes, etc. As you can see from the below photos, it really is the height of glamour over here.

Comfort First

These Birkenstocks may not be the most stylish of shoes but I was getting to the point where my feet were swollen and socks were just a nightmare to get on so the sandals became totally necessary in my last few weeks of pregnancy. Comfort first!

I Will Never Quit Leopard

Investing in a leopard print maternity dress seemed like the most appropriate thing I could possible do as I entered my third trimester some time ago. I 100% stand by the decision…

All the Frills: The Dejected Cats

So my adorable fur babies, Conkers and Penelope, are settling into their new reality of no longer being the only babies in the house. So I wanted to pay them a little extra attention to this week and feature them here…because they truly are pretty adorable.

Thank God For Casual Fridays

As I sit at home with baby Eleanor, a month into my eight month maternity leave, I'm looking at these photos from June and thinking "thank god for Fridays at work where I had no meetings and could head into the office wearing only relaxed and casual things!"
