Missguided Do Maternity

I absolutely love scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration these days, who doesn't? It's fabulous for all kinds of different things from DIY to recipes to fashion. It is my go to when my little bump and I are feeling in a style rut and I find it SO difficult to dress my bump. It seems like many retailers only cater for older women and all I see are stripes (I don't want to look bigger!) or floral patterns. It can become pretty boring so when I see all these gorgeous Pinterest mummys-to-be I get so envious and like "HOW CAN YOU LOOK THIS GOOD?" 

Yummy Pinterest Mummys! 

Anyway, I digress. I was scrolling through ASOS today, as I do many a lunch time at work when I stumbled across a Missguided maternity dress! Yes, Missguided have a maternity line which I had never even heard of until today. After doing a little research it seems the line is quite new and is exclusive to ASOS. The line is pretty small but they have certainly kept everything fresh and on trend which I absolutely love. Here are two of my favourite things from the collection but you can shop the rest here.

Well done Missguided!

The Autumn Tag

September rolls around which means darker colours, darker nights and tonnes of cosy layers! It won't come as a surprise (since I say it all the time) but I really am glad when summer comes to an end and the darker nights start. There is just something about the autumn months that make me so happy and what better way to start September than with the Autumn Tag?
For Autumn, what is your…
1. Favourite thing about it? 

Autumn nights! Okay, leaving work when it's still dark is a bit of a bummer (I'll give you that one, summer), but getting home from work, putting warm pjs on, lighting candles and warming up with a cuppa is definitely a winner.

2. Favourite drink? 

Call me basic but I love PSL! I also love a good cuppa but I've been drinking loads of green tea with lemon recently. It's so good.

3. Favourite scent/candle? 

I have been burning my Black Coconut tart from Yankee Candle at the moment which is delicious but that doesn't really scream Autumn does it? The air right after Bonfire Night is probably my favourite Autumn scent though, does that count? You know the smell, crisp, cold, burnt air. 

4. Best lipstick? 

Who doesn't love a good berry lip during the colder months? However, I recently bought NYX Liquid Lingerie in Teddy and I am obsessed with it. 

5. Go to moisturiser? 

Nivea Soft is the best moisturiser around and only £1 in Home and Bargain ;) 

6. Go to colours for the eyes? 

I don’t really experiment much with my eyes, during the day they’re mostly neutral colours and my night time look is dark and smokey.

7. Favourite music or band/singer to listen to? 

I am obsessed with Moose Blood and Adore Delano at the moment. 

8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)? 
Any outfit that involves an oversized jumper, leggings and boots is a winner for me. You can check out on of my favourite A/W outfits here.

9. Autumn treat? (i.e. a new scarf or bag you have your eye on) 

I haven't really got my eye on anything in particular at the moment (being pregnant means I tend to avoid clothes shopping which is great news for my bank account) but I do have my eye on an Isoki changing bag which can double as a handbag! 

Since the sun is shining through my window at 8am you could say this post was a bit premature but I am excited okay? 

What are your favourite things about Autumn?
