Flash Cosmic..

I am in love with Maybelline's express finish diamond glitter polish in 'Flash Cosmic' it's an iridescent dual tone glitter that reminds me of the semi precious stone in 'Opal', it also looks similar to Mac's 'Vellum' eye shadow. Today I layered it with Barry M's 161 (Vivid Purple) and here's the effect it achieved. The glitter really stands out with a darker colour, yes I am 26 and not 16 but I still love me some glitter in moderation and I really like my fun nails! :)


I recently also picked up OPI 'Strawberry Margarita' which is a lovely bright pink, I have this on my toes with 'Flash Cosmic' layered over the top and it looks AMAZING, you can't really see the glitter it just gives a hint of a blue shine.


Speaking of pink, like my new ironing board cover? £3 from Primark.


It seems I have luck when it comes to finding the odd piece of maternity clothing, I found this beautiful flowy top in the River Island Sale, it was a steal at £12 marked down from £35. I mean how maternal is it? and RI don't even have a maternity range.


I also got this dress which has a drawstring right under the bust making it perfect for me during the Summer. It was £12.99 from H&M. I LOVE the print, it's so ditsy and feminine.


My shopping trips are never quite complete if I haven't purchased some earrings, these ones were from Accessorize at £10. Loving the bronze with the silver!


And clearly I needed some turquoise flower studs, again from Accessorize at £5.


Although I think I have to break the tradition of my earring addiction as I clearly have no more space in my earring drawer! Hmmmmm...


Anyway, moving on and still on the subject of accessories, I picked up a hippy hairband from Topshop.


I also want to say a huge thank you to the Body Shop who kindly sent me a hamper full of things that will be useful to me during my pregnancy. They included foot soak, soothing leg gel, cocoa butter a sleeping mist and much more. I have a few essentials of my own and will have to do a 'Bubblegarm's Pregnancy Essentials' post nearer the end of my pregnancy as a guide for any new mums to be.


I am now 15 weeks and 3 days pregnant, and my belly still just looks bloated, I can't wait to actually have a big pregnant belly! I am convinced I can feel the baby move, it feels like tiny waves and little bubbles and it only happens at night when I am relaxed just before I sleep. Until next time kisses from me and baby bubbles. xXx

That is a really cute mani, I've never seen that Maybelline nail polish before. I'm going to have to look out for that.

Im 17 weeks preg this week and my belly is starting to become so big! I have also felt 'bubble' like feelings since around 14-15 weeks, esp when im lying on my left hand side, it feels like little flutters but they only come every so often and last for a second (: Goodluck with the rest of your pregnancy (: Xo

wonderful jewellery! xoxo

Aww I miss that flutter feeling. I had my second on the 13th of feb. Its movement all right I felt both of mine at around 13 weeks. I guess it depends on how in tune to your body you are. Stay as active as you can it helps with the positioning of baby and also makes labour a whole lot quicker. The mama mio range is great and I swear by the boob tube cream. So excited for you. My daughter is now 8 weeks and had the first batch a immunisations, can't believe how quick time goes. Make the most of it, pregnancy is such a blessing. Much love x

Sherrie said...

Holly said...

Love your maternity top from RI, I want it haha! Love the sparkles too! :) what a lovely treat from BS! xx

OhMyJemimah said...

omg i love the purple mani! I hope you dont use seche vite as a top coat. i heard that pregnant people cant wear it. that and essie polishes

Muhsine said...

@ohmyjemima No I don't use seche vite, I usually use caviar top coat by nails inc, but this time I didn't use any as the glitter polish acts as a topcoat. I didn't know about Essie polishes *shocked*

Stina said...

Muhsine said...

wow thanks girls, I didn't realise RI actually did a maternity range I have NEVER seen it in store, the top I got is actually from the standard range.. I must hunt down an actual store which stocks the whole maternity range! Yay :)

Sprinkleofglitter said...

Oohhh what a lot of lovely treats you have there!
Everyone told me that the first feelings of baby in tum were like butterflies but I agree with you, they felt like bubbles. Soon you'll feel more bubbles and then (for me anyway) it felt like a tiny finger tapping me from the inside and it was a kick!!
Enjoy Baby Bubbles bubbling you ;)
Love Louise and Baby Glitter (Darcy) xxxxx

Tina said...

Hope all's going well with your pregnancy Muhsine! :)
