Celebrating..

Thank you SO much for your beautiful comments in my last post about baby bubbles. if you haven't read it, I'm 12 weeks and 5 days pregnant! :)

We have just got home from a nice meal where we celebrated our wonderful news after the scan. Here's what I wore, I actually felt good today and that has been the complete opposite of what I have been feeling the past few weeks.

All smiles!


I straightened my hair with my GHD's. The cut looks different as I had it cut just before I went to Tunisia. My hair has been growing super fast thanks to the pregnancy, so I didn't feel guilty chopping off a much needed 3 inches.


I rocked black eyeliner on the rims of my eye and also used silver on my lid which is something I never do but should do more often.


On my face I am wearing:
  • Bourjois 10hr sleep effect foundation mixed with Mac face and body.
  • Benefit Erase Paste
  • Mac Studio finish concealer
  • Benefit Hoola

My skin has been going a bit mental due to the hormones, I have been getting spots mainly on my cheek area, they are fading but keep doing unexpected and uninvited return visits. The Clinique 3 step system I recently switched back to is doing a good job eliminating them and keeping my skin clear and smooth as it's oilier than normal.


On my eyes I am wearing:

  • 'Bullit' (silver) e/s from Bee luscious garden girl palette on the lid.
  • Mac 'Satin Taupe' and 'Brun' e/s on the crease.
  • Shu Uemera painting liner in black on upper lash line with Urban Decay 'Zero' 24/7 pencil smudged over the top and on the waterline.
  • Dior Extase mascara.
  • Ardell 'Demi Wispies' false lashes.
  • Mac 'Brun' & 'Cork' e/s lightly on brows.

On my lips:

  • L'oreal 'Cappuccino' lipliner
  • Mac 'Innocence Beware' lipstick
I was sent some Ardell lashes to try a few weeks ago and haven't been able to due to my lack of energy, tonight I was finally able to test out the 'Demi Wispies' and I love them. Usually when I apply false lashes which is about twice a year, I take them right off as they feel too heavy and just piss me off in general. These Ardell Demi Wispies, were so lightweight, I didn't have to cut them and they look so natural, I could easily wear them everyday.



Here's the obligatory shot of the eyes closed! :)


Here's the outfit I wore, just something casual with a slight smart twist. You may realise I am looking thinner than usual, that's because I lost 3kg (half a stone) due to the morning (all day) sickness during the past few weeks. I have started eating properly the past few days and I think things are almost back to normal.



BUMP WATCH!

At times I think I am massive and sometimes I think I'm tiny, it all depends on the time of day and what I am wearing. There's a tiny pooch that is popping out and it just looks like I am bloated. :) My twaistline is disappearing and I am already thinking about workout routines for after the birth. Currently I weigh 57kg and am 164cm tall which is all normal.
I have been using plenty of things on my belly and will do a separate post on it.


Everyone tells me I look different or fresh and I tell them it's new "fresh" makeup, do you notice when people are pregnant? Long post I know, I just had so much to update you on! X

YASMINE said...

Congrats!!! Hope everything goes well (Inch'Allah)XXX

Being a new mum is a challenge to a fashionista/beauty fan:
The sleepless nights will make under eye circles appear; Being so overwhelmed at birth and the experience in itself will make you realize that looking amazing at all times isn't so important after all, shopping won't be as often & as simple as before... and many more ...

But I'm sure that you'll keep up very well XXX
