As ever, another month has come to an end! I must say, it has been quite a good one as it has been the month I celebrated my birthday. I’ve also had a bit of time off from my full-time job which was definitely a bonus and totally needed. Right then, let’s get onto my April Faves!
1. Birthday Celebrations
So as I mentioned, April is my birthday month. And as you can tell it was the big 3-0! For my previous ‘special birthdays’ (18th, 21st) I’ve had quite big parties. However, because this one is a little bit different with having the bubba on board I did something different.Â Â I hired out part of my localÂ Boston Tea PartyÂ cafe and decorated it with pretty balloons and tassels. Lots of my family and friends were able to come celebrate with me, and we all had a really lovely time. It was relaxed and chilled and just what I wanted. I’ve done a post about turning 30, and if I’ve achieved all I wanted to during the past year. You can find it here if you fancy a nosey.
2. Nursery Decoration
So this month the nursery has definitely got well under way! We chose this cute as wallpaper from DunelmÂ and I’m totally in love with it. We decided to just use it on one wall of the room, with the opposite side being a yellow shade that matches the elephants. Yellow is my fave colour, so I’m really happy about this! The furniture is all in there now, and little one even has a book shelf and a few books already. I just can’t wait for her to arrive now!
3. Birthday Gifts
So with having a special birthday, I received lots of lovely gifts. The Hubster treated me to these gorgeous shoes and bag from Carvela Kurt Geiger. I love the neutrals and the simplicity and how they all go with so much! I also got some great gifts from family and friends that I thought I might share in a blog post. Let me know if you’d like to see that! Other treats I received were a few days away with the Hubs and also a day spent in Bath with some friends. I think its fab to get experiences too as well as more material things.
4. Taking Care of the Bump
Obviously throughout my pregnancy I’ve tried to take care of my bump. However, for my birthday I got my hands on this little set from NSpa. I’ve really enjoyed using these products and they’ve made my skin feel so much better. They’re also a great size that will last me until the end of my pregnancy, but I won’t have loads left over.
5. Spring Vibes
It is finally Spring woohoo! And whilst the British weather is totally hit and miss, it has been so nice to finally see the sun. And even pack away some of my Winter boots! Now don’t get me wrong, I love chunky knits and cute boots, but you definitely get to a point when you want to be able to go out without a coat. I also like all the things that Spring brings, such as new beginnings and pretty flowers. Daffodils are definitely one of my faves. Plus, it means that the Summer is on its way!
So these are some of the things I’ve been loving this month. What did you enjoy in April? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time…
