Hey lovelies, today’s post am sharing looks i have created with polyvore(follow me) comprising of the current pieces trending in the fashion world. I must say i love this year’s trends and hopefully soon i will own some of these pieces. Whenever i scroll through my instagram feed all i see are fashionistas looking all glammed up in these looks. Check them below and tell me which outfit and trend you prefer rocking.

1. Ruffled and off-shoulder(cold or Slouchy) tops & dresses

This one of the most popular trends i have seen every fashionista is slaying. Off shoulder & ruffles mostly go hand in hand thats why i have not separated them as different trends.  They come in different styles from cold to slouchy shoulders and this makes it easier for every one to wear what they feel comfy in. Off shoulder pieces do not discriminate among ages.

2. Embroidery

From tops,skirts,dresses to sneakers & bags…floral embroidery is so on trend these day and am so inlove with it. A touch of floral in your outfit makes you look chic & stylish

3. Pleated Metallic skirts

Pleated skirt is such a fashion piece that rocks during fashion week. You can rock with just anything…you can dress it up with stiletto heels or down with shirts,sneakers and cardigans. They come in all length but i prefer the maxi length.


Which trend do you love most? let me know in the comment section below. Will be sharing more

Happy Monday y’all

Last friday but one i went out for swimmimg,sun bathing and jogging at the Corniche Beach as a way of staying fit during my Second Trimester of pregnancy.

The sun was up, scenery was lit and my outfit was good to go…what else can a pregnant woman ask for…maybe a bottle of water that also came in handy.

Before i reached to the shores, i took some photos and videos of my outfit and like you can see, i wore stripped leggings with a barbie vest and accessorised with my pink sneakers,scarf and denim jacket in my waist(Just in case the weather changes lol) and my beach bag.

This was such a comfy look to rock on a friday. I also carried my red bikin for swimming and well the waters felt so good.

Check out my youtube video for more enjoyment. 

Mother of the Nation Festival Abu Dhabi #motn

Hello Saturday!
On April 31st i attended the Mother of the nation festival that took place at corniche beach for the first time and i must say it was such a wonderful experience. 

The Mother of the Nation Festival celebrates,commemorates and honours the inspirational values of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak.

Throughout multiple and diverse activity zones, the festival creates an entertaining and highly interactive atmosphere that welcomes families and individuals from all walks of life. Visitors are invited to enjoy a day out on the Corniche and participate in this unique community event that celebrates the best aspects of contemporary culture within Abu Dhabi and the UAE.

I realised that in my first trimester of pregnancy i did not go out to have fun due to morning sickness & nausea, so 2nd trimester was pay back time  to get out more whenever i have an off day from work and this is my first activity that i went to. I went a bit early so that i could take a video and photos of all the activities before it  was dark and over crowded. The Motn Festival happens every year and this time it was from March 26th-April 4th 2017

Been lazy to post the photos and videos because the video was a bit long to edit plus i have space storage issues. Motn festival suits families mostly because of the kids games zones everywhere. Hopeful next year i will be able to bring my little one also πŸ™‚ . 

About my outfit, i wore a rainbow tunic with leggings and sandals and sealed the look with my yellow cross back…this was a perfect look for a perfect bright weather and occassion…so comfy and stylish as well.

I enjoyed the music,great scenery,the food and ofcourse selfies. Thanks to the good weather. 

Check out the video for a more live action and details…because if i start to write everything that happened on this day i will surely finish tomorrow. I know when the baby comes i will have a little time to attend such event so i have to use this chance lol. The festival was untill midnight but i had to leave at 7pm because i was alreadt tired, i came at 3pm in the afternoon.

14 and 15 weeks pregnancy update: Ultrasound & Baby Bump & Video

Tags

, , , ,

Hello lovelies, hope your all doing well. Today I would like to update you about the beginning of my second Trimester, week 14 and 15.  more so, I will be sharing my first baby bump and ultrasound video.

What was happening to me

At 14/15 weeks my baby bump started showing for the first time and this was the the happiest moments of my life. The morning sickness did not stop though it did decrease, I thought it would stop as soon as I entered my second trimester but I was wrong. I started having dreams every single night about various situations and until now I do have weired dreams…Doctor says it is normal. Fatigue kicked in and over sleeping still kept on haunting me. I started having on and off headaches on fore head and this is a major symptom in this trimester. Also i gained weight  a bit, well since my apetite started coming back and I could eat some good food without feeling nauseous. I gained energy and I  now carried on with my normal house chores from where i had stopped. My weight increased as well during this time. 

About the baby development

The baby has grown since, weighing 1.75 ounces and reaching four inches in length. A fine hair called lanugo covers the skin, keeping the baby at a constant body temperature.

The lanugo does this until the baby is born, and it disappears just before birth. During the fifteenth week, many good things are happening inside the womb.

The biggest thing is that the bones in the ear are hardening, and my baby is now able to hear sounds, including Mom’s heartbeat, speaking, and breathing. And am advised by most websites to begin  putting headphones on the belly during the second trimester, playing soft music to keep the baby calm.

According to pregnancy corner “the baby is moving around a lot, the mum may not be able to tell just yet, although she may occasionally feel the baby kick. She may also get the occasional hiccups. These movements will be felt more easily and more often later in the pregnancy.”

My baby is making faces, squinting and frowning, and sucking on its thumb. Since last week the arms and legs have grown longer than the head.

This is significant, since the head has been the biggest part of the fetus until now. Taste buds are forming, and the fingernails and toenails are growing longer by the day.

Check out the video for the ultrasound and probably you may be able to guess the gender.

AM PREGNANT!!! #First Trimester Recap

Yeah yeah you heard me right…AM PREGNANT!

On December 24th 2016 I had a pregnant test and it was a  very big fat POSITIVE….this was the greatest news and the only Christmas gift I desired then. I gave the news to my Husband who was beyond excited to be a father.

We are so thankful to God who has given us this gift and we can not wait to set our eyes on our first born. Being newly weds and getting pregnant a month after was such a huge turning point in our lives. Thank God he answered our Prayers.

I had my first ultrasound at 6 weeks …seeing my little one for the first time was breathing taking. The next two ultrasounds that have followed, i have seen my baby grow so beautifully and i can’t wait to hold him in my arms.

If you are already a  mother or soon to be one, you know that the first trimester (1-3months) is the most challenging and daunting period

My most challenging moments during this time was majorly the popular ”Morning sickness(Vomiting)” as many call it but in real life this not only happen in mornings but kicks in any time of the day or  night. I was always nauseated most of the time and there was barely any day that passed without vomiting at least 3 times a day….yes i couldn’t keep anything down not even water. Going to work was very tiresome and uncomfortable as i kept excusing my self to run to the wash room to puke.  

My body under went other changes like increase in the size of my breasts, fatigue and over sleeping, i got heart burn,constipation. I lost appetite for most of my favorite food, high Sensitivity to smell made me stay away from most foods and hating on my gorgeous perfumes & makeup…so annoying right?

 I used to love shopping but hey, sleeping endless hours was my new found passion mostly on my off days…there was no way i could go to the mall or church while nauseated and tired all the time. In addition i lost weight as well.

Thanks to my Husband who became the Executive chef of our home…trying to cook for me whatever dish i craved for at any time…i must say he is such a best friend.

With all that was going on in my life, there was no way I could blog and keep up with you guys. First Trimester was not a cup of tea for me.

As i speak now am in the Second trimester ( 4 months and 5 days Prego) yaay to that and my bump is now showing…i must say, i got the most beautiful bump ever lol…wait for it in my next post. 

They say that 2nd trimester is the honeymoon of pregnancy and to some extent i agree because i now feel much better… morning sickness has now reduced,my appetite is back and i am more energetic…i can’t wait to start baby shopping. I have on and off headache & cramping but i hope it ceases soon.

 There is lot to share with you guyz in my upcoming posts about my pregnancy journey… diet,baby names ideas and gender reveal so don’t go any where.
