Happy Monday everyone! We got a little break from the cold weather this weekend so I decided take my Henri Bendel goodies out for a shopping spin in this cute lace number. Well, window shopping that is. I’m trying not to shop for past six months since I wanted to save up for the baby’s arrival, and I’ve been pretty good about it so far. Many of you have personally reached out to me and offered me some great mommy advice, and I appreciate that very much. You guys are the best! The last leg of this pregnancy has been a little rough for me but I’m soldiering through it. I can’t believe two more months and we finally get to meet him!

One of the things I discovered during my pregnancy is a newfound affection for the color black. It’s such a flattering color on a pregnant frame especially when wearing anything that has a bodycon silhouette. I’m so glad I stocked up on stretchy black bodycons because they’re still wearable now and look great!

Henri Bendel : A Girl’s Playground

As someone who loves delicate feminine accessories, I have to admit it was love at first sight when I was introduced to Henri Bendel. From handbags, jewelry, eyewear and hair accessories, it literally is every woman’s dream playground. What I love most about Henri Bendel is the personality infused in each of the products designed. They’re sophisticated and luxurious blended with just the right amount of playful girlie charm.

Luckily, I was recently invited to experience the brand so I selected a set of products that best fit my current style personality – chic fashionista. I also factored in the fact that Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so my picks are particularly romantic and feminine.

Statement Necklace
A serious show stopper. The details and sparkles here are simply stunning. It’s a great statement necklace for when I need to add a little oomph and sparkle to an outfit.

Statement Bangle
For a girl with small wrists, I love how flattering this bangle fits me. The gold and pink duo is beautiful and versatile combo that I can wear with many outfits. I’m so glad I picked it.

Hello Beauties! A little while ago I introduced you to a maternity boutique called Pink Blush Maternity in one of my holiday posts (read here), which carries affordable and ridiculously cute maternity clothes. From their winter collection, these skinny jeans and fitted jacket are my favorites. The jeans are very comfortable and fit me perfectly without any alterations. I love how it hugs my curves. The double collars in the jacket is a unique design I haven’t seen often and it’s quite flattering. For my readers who are not expecting now but considering in the future, you should bookmark this site. There are only a handful of maternity boutiques out there and this is one of my favorites in terms style, quality and cost!

I’m currently approaching 30 weeks and I have to admit though, one of the unexpected benefits of pregnancy for me has been seeing my bottom grow several inches within the last few months. I know it sounds silly but being petite all of my life, it’s nice to be able to finally fill out my jeans, so I’m taking full of advantage of this benefit even if it doesn’t last!

Being so lovely and wonderful, the Pink Blush Maternity team is offering a $25 gift card to one lucky reader. Head over to my Instagram soon to enter! Yay, shopping time!
