Season's Greetings!!

I saved money by taking some Christmas/ Maternity pics at home. Photo cred: my lil cuz Makeill :)


I grew up with a huge Christmas spirit in Trinidad
There we buy new curtains, paint the house and Parang Music is a must!!

I try to carry on the same traditions here, but the vibe
is definitely not the same.


With that said though, it's still
one of my favorite Holidays...


Happy Holidays
Everyone

I might not have another 4 week update if she decides to arrive early ( or even ontime) I will try to record a labor and delivery vlog. If not my next baby related post should be my delivery story


Thanks for your support, always

My Baby Shower 12.6.14



I couldn't ask for anything more!
My Baby Shower was a success. All the fuss I was making?
Worth it.

90% of the people I invited came which was a surprise
because the weather was horrible.



The food was yummy, games where fun, my snack table
looked cute. Everyone had a great time.

 My cousin hosted

Guess belly bump game!

My bff took notes as I opened gifts

I got a few things from my registry which helped a lot.

My mom was all smiles (she  worked hard! Love her~ white top)

God is good!!

Straight HAIR Talk

Ok i'm bored with my hair so here I go changing it up.
I'm ready to wear my hair straight more often. I contemplated perming (OMG WHAT?!... yeah) but because I am pregnant and perm is such a permanent deal, I decided to hold off on that until next spring... maybe.


My camera got misplaced :( Very sad times. I had step by step pictures
on there of my before hair
Well, this is how it looked before the
trim and cut.


I washed, deep conditioned and blew out the hair. Then...
small section by section I flat-ironed and trim the ends (about 1/4 inch)

After, my mom neaten me up in the back and sides for
a more uniformed bob look


I love it. Time will tell if i'm able to keep up with the constant flat ironing at home. The plan is to wash every 2 weeks and I've already introduced some new products to my new hair regimen. Update soon come about those products.

Hope you had a Lovely Thanksgiving.
Happy Holidays!! (not too early right?)

The Journey~ 32 Weeks Pregnant

Saying time is flying by is an understatement!! I cant believe I am already 32 weeks pregnant.
It feels like just a month ago I was nauseous all day long (for the first 4 months!)



These days i'm always hungry and tired. Other than that, life is great lol
I'm in the process of putting together my baby-shower. I wish I had someone to plan it for me (cause i'm tired) but I always get a kick (no pun intended lol) out of planning so its going fairly good.

This past week I finally received the baby's chest of drawers. Its already packed with most of her cutesy clothing!!

Check out my vlog video to see how I spent the past 4 weeks.
