the weekend is finally here and we don´t have any plans to leave the house for the first time in weeks and that is so nice. I felt super bad today. Somehow my nausea after having some food came back today and the only thing that helps me there is to sleep it off. After two hours of sleeping I felt better but was super tired and decided to stay on the sofa.
For this look I paired two big trends to incorporate into one outfit. Snake print and faux fur. Snake print has risen above all other prints the last year and is present wherever you shop and faux fur is the perfect alternative to add some warmth and fanciness to your look.
Black and beige also always looks chic. You can hardly make anything wrong mixing these two. It was a super cute and comfortable look. All the pieces are not maternity and still fit my ever growing bump.
today´s post might not be for eveyone but for all my mama´s to-be out there this could be quite useful. Ever since I found out I was pregnant I started to do my research on baby products in online shops, on other mama bloggers sites and everywhere in between. All of our friends are still childless so I couldn´t ask any of them but I think I did quite well. How useful and probably more important how often the items will be used when the baby is here is still out in the open.
Car Seat Maxi Cosi Rock Group 0 // I had a look at many different car seat brands but ended up liking the Maxi Cosi the most. They seems to be really safe and also affordable which makes them attractive for many people I think. Ours is the Rock in Group 0 which is the newborn phase and up. We have the sparkling grey and I personally love that it glitters in the sun. Of course you can also get a plain color.
Car seat knitted sunroof // I wanted another color for the Maxi Cosi but couldn´t find one I really liked so I got this cute little knit cover for it which is so pretty and adds a whimsical touch.
Car seat cover // I think they are super practical if you are carrying the baby in the car seat with you to doctors appointments so the light will she shut out and it is also a great way to keep germs off.
Baby Björn Rocker // Heard and seen that this is the holy grail rocking chair for happy babies. Every mom I am following on Instagram has pointed out that this is the best rocker they could possibly find. It is a little more expensive than other but you can turn it inside out and use it as a chair when your baby has grown into the toddler stage.
Baby Björn Rocker toy // Got this recommended as I put my rocker in the cart. I ended up buying it too because I think it will make a fun little additon to the rocker for the baby to play but to be honest it is a little bit pricier than I would want it to be.
Mammacita burp clothes // Not much to add to these. I will need them anyway so why not get some with adorable lamas.
Sleepyhead // Since the Dock-A-Tot isn´t available in Germany I have found a similar one from the UK. The brand is called sleepyhead and I would say it is the same product. At least it looks the same and the prints are also very similar. I plan on using this for the sofa and also as an insert for the crib beside our bed.
SkipHop changing pad // Got this changing pad to carry in my tote or the stroller with me. I have another one in my diaper bag, also from SkipHop. I think their pieces are super cute and affordable and so far I think the quality is really great.
Nightlight// Great to light up the baby´s room and also perfect for breastfeeding in the middle of the night. It has a touch sensor and 3 different levels of light. I also plan on packing this in my hospital bag.
WMF bottle warmer // There are bottle warmer of any brand out there but they also only fit the brands bottles so I had been on the hunt for one that warms any bottle I would want to heat up and also thaws and warms breastmilk from the freezer bags.
Diaper pail // This one is supposed to seal up each and every diaper individually so it won´t smell. We´ll find out. You can get different skins for your diaper pail with a ton of patterns.
Drip tray for baby bottles and pacis // I thought this was super cute to put the bottles and pacis on after sterilizing them to dry.
Baby knit blanket // Wanted to match a cute baby blanket with our stroller and this one fits the bill in color and style and softness.
Velcro Swaddles // Hopefully these will support our baby to sleep good during nap times and nights.
breastfeading pillow // It was really hard for me to find a breastfeeding pillow that wasn´t super cheesy or ugly for me. Why do all of the prints and colors have to be so over the top ugly in Germany. I really don´t get it.
car mirror // I never thought of this but it makes total sense to have one of these, also for safety reasons. It takes less time looking in the mirror what the baby is doing than turning your head while driving.
flexible toy ball // I know that the baby will be to small to grab anything in the beginning but I ended up getting it cause I figured at some point we need grabing toys as well.
There are millions of articles out there to shop for and in the end you have to decide for yourself what you really need and want but I think a little guide on what other people recommend and get might make it a little easier.
All of the prodcuts are from amazon and most come with prime shipping so if you decide on anything last minute I am sure you will get it in time.
it is a big day over here today as I am turning 30. I have to admit I wasn´t quite sure what to think about that -not that I could have stopped it in any way – but I think I am fine with it.
In fact there isn´t a thing I could be sad about. I have a great husband, a pretty house, a super cute dog and a baby girl on the way so there isn´t a thing I could wish for more – at least in my personal area.
One thing I got myself for my birthday which also has been a long dream of myself has been a designer bag. To be more exact a Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I have saved up money for this bag for years and managed to get it two days before my 30th birthday although it has been sold out for months prior. I call that very lucky.
We spent the afternoon in Nuremberg for Starbucks coffee and more Starbucks coffee.That has been my request as our nearest Starbucks coffee shop is about an hour away in every direction. It ended up being a great day having dinner at one of our favorite Greek restaurants and my parents and in-laws.
I have never been super into celebrating my birthday and really don´t make a fuss about it. Having a nice day and going out for dinner is really enough for me.
Hope you also had a great hump day today. The week is almost over. Just one and a half to go. See you tomorrow.
the weather is still very strange over here. Not really Winter but still freezing at night and warm during the day. Super weird and not the best for me over here. I got the cold from my husband but it lingers on for quite some time now and I can´t really take anything other than drink tea and vitamin c. So hopefully I am fine tomorrow to celebrate my birthday a little.
Since these posts have been super popular last year I am going to start again sharing my monthly amazon picks. I stopped posting these since the beginning at my pregnancy as they are a lot of work and I was so tired all the time. But now I am back (tired again but that will probably last for the next years so..) sharing my monthly amazon purchases. I also love reading these from other bloggers as there are millions of articles on amazon and everybody finds different pieces but it is also tricky cause the more cute things you see/find the more you probably want.
Bodycon dresses // I absolute adore these dresses. They are available in a short- and longsleeve version and have the perfect lenght no matter if you want to wear them to work or on the weekend. I literally got every color but the pink (my size is always sold out). They fit perfectly with the bump and the side ruching also make them super flattering if you are not pregnant as they aren not maternity. They all come with prime shipping and are under 20 Euro so I really don´t know what else you could want in a dress. Perfect to dress up or down and add any prints to it you like.
magnesium // This is the magnesium my husband uses daily and me too since I got pregnant. It has a higher concentration than usual products which means it works better than other products cause your body actually absorbs it way better since it is a magnesiumcitrate.
fondue forks // Just a random buy cause we planned on making cheese fondue for NYE and only had two forks but we ended up changing our dinner plans. The set has a great value for the amount of pieces.
Table runner // I have used this one for our Christmas table scape and decor and absolutely loved it. It is only 10 Euro but is made of great quality and looks super luxe. Maybe not the perfect piece for upcoming Spring but it is definitely worth to keep on your wishlist for next Christmas.
table ring light // I have been getting this for my make-up table upstairs so I can photograph make-up tutorials for you with propper lighting. It is super bright and totally easy to use. I haven´t photographed anything yet but it comes with 2 adapters, one for your camera and one for your phone and also bluetooth remote.
scarf set // As I was searching for a red plaid scarf as I found this incredibel set. The scarves are big and super soft and the color combinations of both are gorgeous. I loved wearing them so far and they match with ton of my clothes. The set has prime shipping and comes in a ton of different color combos and it is only 16 Euor which is a great value for both.
bluelight glasses // I have had bluelight glasses from amazon before but found these to be super cute with the nude colored frame. They are under 20 Euro and available in over ten different colors and patterns. Also a great frame that matches many face shapes.
hair clips // A total must-have here because I often need to clip back a bunch of hair strands.
So that´s it for my December round-up of amazon purchases. Some are super random but others are real gems.
