Life is like a heart monitor, without ups and downs we are not living

I suppose New Year's Eve is a time to reflect on the year just gone, and boy oh boy what a year it has been. 

In 2017 I had some of the best news I will ever receive and also the worst. To say this year has been an emotional roller-coaster is the world's biggest understatement. I want to take the time to consider my reflections and share them with you. I'm not always one to share this kind of stuff, but even if any of this helps just one person, I will have accomplished something great.

How cute is the bow detail!  Boohoo - £28.00 Being pink with faux fur, these are my cutesy pick. I would wear these with black skinny jeans and a pretty floaty blouse. Topshop - £20.00 These are a bloody bargain as they are currently in the sale, but the're only £29.00 full price anyw…

Is it even Chistmas without some sparkle?

I love a bit of sparkle at Christmas and this year is no exception. With a growing baby bump, the search for the perfect festive party dress has been a bit different, but Boohoo have made this search a lot easier. I am really impressed with their choice of maternity stuff, they have the Christmas sparkle on point and the prices are awesome. Here are my maternity Christmas party dress top picks.
