I have gone bananas...

Yes, I have indeed. It seems crochet, applique and everything else craft related has taken over my brain. It's been 2 weeks since I last updated and there's so much to fill you in on. I'm 34 weeks pregnant today and I think the panic is kicking in. Overall I'm well, apart from headaches, heartburn, exhaustion and being HUGE!

What have I been doing? I have been crocheting MORE hairbands. I have made about 12, I'm stopping now, I promise! :)


So, since I'm not making anymore hairbands... I have jazzed up a few onesies with crochet embellishment on the centre front and arms. They look SO cute!



I have also almost completed the cot bedding, Here's a sneak peak at some of it, I made the stuffed hearts out of some of the fabric I'm using for the applique...



Enough of the baby stuff, and for some ME updates, I just repurchased a fresh bottle of Mac Face & Body foundation, my ultimate favourite! I also got the new Sleek 'Nude' collection through the post this morning which looks AMAZING, I will update you with swatches and a FOTD very soon. There's so much more to say but I guess I will just elaborate in forthcoming posts!


I checked out the newly opened Forever21 in London, I walked away with some accessories and a top! There was some lovely stuff and some horrible stuff, but it's still a store that is much welcomed by me in London.





What have you been up to? x X x

Forever 21 here in the States is EVERYWHERE! It's like a drug out here, everyone loves it! I like it too, but I'm with you on there's some lovely stuff or there's some ugly stuff! haha

I am eager to try the F&B Foundation by MAC... I'd really want it more for my body.. do you have a review on it already? If not, what do you think of its use on the body?

The palette looks perfect and the headbands and onesie are adorable! If I find out I am carrying a girl, I plan to make her some too if I can figure it out=P Did you find the pattern online?

I hope you enjoy the last leg of your pregnancy!
