Valentines/Thursday 2013.

Hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day this year :) To be honest, I'm not a big fan of it myself and me and my boyfriend don't really celebrate it. We just think it's so commercial and you don't need to take just one day of the year to show someone how much you love or care for them. So it was just like another day for us. We did go out for dinner though but it was just like another fat date for a fat couple like us :)

You can definitely see the weight gain on my face now! But for our Valentines/Thursday date, I decided to do some soft curls. I think this definitely suits my face shape and adds definition to my disappearing jaw line ;P My boyfriend doesn't really like me wearing much make-up so I opted for light pink and browns for my eye make-up. 

Fattest couple of the year! Haha. I do love our outfits so we were being a bit vain before heading out that night. The top I'm wearing isn't a maternity top. It's actually still a size 8 top which is from Jane Norman. Before it was totally loose but now you can see it's tighter now especially where my bump is :) And as I said in my previous posts, all I want to wear now are maternity leggings since nothing else fit me anymore. My butt and thighs has definitely gotten bigger!

Some goodies that I got that day! A new Longchamp Tote and Select Sheer pressed powder from MAC! Two of my favourite things in life - bags and make-up!

For dinner we went to Vapianos! We got there around 6pm and luckily it wasn't that busy or packed yet. It looks like super small portions, but the dish is quite deep and I had difficulties finishing my meal! It was absolutely delish though and the prices are pretty reasonable. 

And for dessert, krispy kreme donuts! We haven't had them for ages so we decided to buy a double dozen. I was really excited to try the red velvet cake, but it was disappointing. It was quite dry and didn't taste anything like previous red velvet cakes I've had. The rest were still yummy though :) 

My boyfriend spoiling me didn't end there though. The next day, he ran a candlelit bath for me! It was very cute and sweet. I really needed it especially with the back pain I've been feeling. Luckily, my boyfriend does things like this not just on Valentines day, but whenever he can really. He spoils me and takes good care of me and I must say I'm a very lucky girl :) 

What do you think of Valentines Day? Do you celebrate it or is it just another day for you as too? Let me know your thoughts on it!

Onesies - Yay or Nay?

It seems like onesies has been one of the must have items this winter. They look so warm and comfortable not just to be worn indoors, but outdoors too! I've seen a lot of cute adorable onesies on the High street with cute and pretty patterns and I've also seen funny ones like animal onesies and even cartoon characters. I've always thought they were pretty cool but I never thought I would purchase one for myself. Until yesterday! I was in Primark Oxford Street and walked through the kids section and I saw a Hello Kitty Onesie! I'm a big hello kitty fan but I was having second thoughts about buying it because I didn't even know if I would really wear it, even if I'm just at home. Also, it's a kids onesie. The length of it was perfect because I'm super short, but I didn't know whether it would zip up because of my big baby bump. But because it was Hello Kitty, I knew I had to get it as I've never seen a hello kitty onesie before! I wasn't bothered to try it on but if it didn't fit it would be easy to return anyway.

Hello Kitty Onesie from Primark (£9.00) size - for 13 year olds! 155 cm. 

I love the colours of it because it looked so simple yet the Hello Kitty pattern made it look so adorable.  Also, I loved that it has a hood! And when I tried it on, it actually fit me perfectly even with my huge bump! But it probably won't fit me soon as I know my bump will definitely get bigger and I won't be able to zip it up anymore! The hood is so cute with the pink bow at the top. Very hello kitty! It's also very warm so I know it will keep me during these cold winter nights especially now the temperature's dropping down to the minus numbers again. It even keeps my feet warm! The material is also very soft which makes it so comfortable to sleep in. I highly doubt that I will wear this outside though. I don't think I have the guts! I must say though, I'm very  happy with my purchase. It's also very cheap retailing at just £9! Most onesies I've come across in High street stores are usually £15 to £30. Maybe it's also because it's a kids onesie and not an adult one? Haha. Being short does have its perks :) 

Cute Hello Kitty onesie! P.s. don't mind my messy room!
