What to wear post baby



Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ’•

So after haven my beautiful little girl 9 weeks ago, and alot of my followers just had  baby's or are due there baby's soon....

Here are a few items of clothes I love just after haven a baby....

So any one who has had a baby that little saggy belly isn't very glamous just after you haven given birth.
But we can't let it get us down....

So after I've had given birth to my second princess I went to my wardrobe and said ok I no I can't fit into my old stuff just yet so what can I fit into....?

Belive it or not I did try on alot of my old stuff after given birth to see wat was comfortable and what could I wear...cause I don't know about ye but I didn't want to go out and buy a hole new wardrobe just yet.

So let's start with bottoms 
I found for myself that high-waisted jeans where the best thing for me to wear.....it will hold you in when you still have that extra bit of weight around the tummy....
So what brands did I love
RIVERSLAND molly's high-waisted 




These are just two out of alot of Molly's & Lori denims I love from riversland island...
Very comfortable 



First pic is black ripped denims from PENNY'S
Middle pic are highwaisted MOLLY'S from RIVERSLAND 
Last pic is also from RIVERSLAND they are LORI

These pics are all after I've given birth

Penny's denims are also my go to 




How can you go wrong with these prices....
I wear these from PENNY'S and I absolutely love the fit.

So onto tops...
My faves places at the moment are PENNY'S TOPS & ZARA
I'm loven oversized fits just cause there are so many and you don't have to worry about showing a little bit of extra weight 
Here are some tops I've recently purchased 


Top is from ZARA I got it on sale but just to give ye an idea it's loose an I love the frill at the bottom and the colour 
Denims are highwaisted from PENNY'S 
Also PENNY'S have a similar top same colour but short sleeves for €6




All loose tops that are very affordable all these are from PENNY'S but some may not be in stock but there is always similar stock in store


From H&M €9.99 still in store and available in more colours

Here are some outfit snaps just to give ye inspiration 


Top pennys

Top H&m denims Molly's RIVERSLAND

I hope that I can give at least one person a little inspiration this Sunday morning๐Ÿ’•

My Journey 


How long has it been since I've sat down and actually wrote a blog...
Forever!!!

When I found out I was pregnant I didn't have the focus to sit down and blog, and if I'm been completely honest I do think alot of people don't read blogs they like the more visible stuff like photos, snapchat etc....

Any ways this blog is purely on my journey to given birth to my absolutely gorgeous little gift Adalynn...

Every one kept saying oh you won't go over you will have that baby before your due date which was 18/12/16
Funny enough I did go over even after getting the sweep at 38 weeks I lost my mucus plug and a few mild contractions even the doctor sad your cervix is favourable.

39 weeks I had another sweep and doctor said I'll give you 24hrs but yet again noting my baby's head was down she was just to lazy lol....

40 weeks and 3 days over another sweep the doc said your 3cm how haven't you gone into labour, 
This baby was just totally cosy and why wouldn't she be...

I was brought in at 8 o'clock on the 23/12/16 to think the ball would be rolling soon, my waters just needed to be broke nd off I should pop, 
After waiting from 10 o'clock in a ward where other mothers just given birth just been left there not even in labour myself I was totally annoyed I just wanted to go home as I have my other little girl at home and it's the day before Xmas eve...


I told the nurse "I'm going home I've been left here all day no one has come near me to explain what's going on" don't get me wrong emergency cases come true those doors all the time and these have to be seen first but all I wanted was someone to let me no what was going on and give me a time roughly.

So the doctor came down and told me they will get you around 8 o'clock and they did, so I made my way upto the labour ward got into my nitey, made myself comfortable, chatted to a doctor who was just about to finish up for abit and then my midwife to deliver my little girl started her shift...
We chatted for awhile and then she broke my waters, where I absolutely soaked her she had to go change her pants and all, totally sorry, I was then put on the drip to start my contractions, at the start I could barely feel them even laughing at one point as we all chatted in the room....I was using the ball to get things rolling it really was such a chilled out atmosphere 

I told myself I wasn't getting any pain relief as I got it on morgan and felt it didn't work and was bed bound for 6hrs, so when the contractions started to get intense just near enough to half 10, the pain was absolutely died in really didn't think I could do it, all I remember was saying I don't think I can I don't think I can lol....but all of a sudden I needed to push it all happened so fast the midwife was like she is so close by this point I was like I think I need pain killers lol....no you don't you can do it she is so close, I'm so happy I didn't get anything after about 10 mins pushing out she popped in Felt every bit of her even though she was tiny only 6.9....

At 11.17 baby Adalynn was born just under an hour I couldn't belive it...
She was here my little gift I've prayed for so long...
My midwife what can I say she was absolutely outstanding a pleasure to be around to the other midwife who covered her brake you just made me laugh...I had the most amazing experience over in the labour ward I'm couldn't fault the two women I'm had, thank you.


I was left home just after half one the following day just in time for Xmas eve to spend with my morgan and adalynn.
What an amazing gift it truly has been the best Christmas of my life I feel so much love to be a mother to two beautiful girls...

Christmas eve we baked cookies and little the fire and just enjoyed our self's it was truly amazing...

Wow what a long post....hope you enjoy reading so sorry so long....typical women we get carried away.

So I can't truly wait to get back to outfit post but my blog will change it will be about me my life and fashion...I don't blog for anything but myself cause I enjoy it 

I hope ye can follow me on my next journey on how to jungle life of a mum of two (have to get used to that) and all other bits of my life

Thanks for reading

All shapes and sizes


So any one following me awhile , along time ago I did a blog on all shapes and size but my old account was hacked and had to start a new one so that blog is now gone.

As a lot of ye know I work in retail and have done for many years...
Working in retail can be very difficult at times as in some times you feel you need two of you at once to help customers etc...

But what I love and what has kept me in retail for so many years is the love of style i have, and seen other people's style come in and out of work...

Recently I've noticed so many  girls and women been very out spoken about how they feel about there body's...

I'm to thin for this I'm to fat for that
I need to loose this here and there
(As we all do)
I'm a girl we all do this but it has come to my attention that its absolutely absurd how many of us criticize our own body and how we look...

I see women of all ages look into the mirror and don't see what I see, instead they seem to put them self's down.
When I see how beautiful they are  they see what they don't like
Now come on we all do this...but I feel I'm seen it so much now a days, that its opening my eyes a lot more and keep thinking about it.

We all have bad days where we feel awful or those amazing days where we think we are amazing, its just a girl thing
But if I can change at least one girl/womens  view on how she looks before she leaves my job or what ever she is trying on.
Not just to sell something to a person fot the sake of it but for that person to feel (yes i do look good in this)

I love helping people I love seen women come in and trying on clothes and walking out feeling that bit better about them self's
It really makes me smile

I dealt with one woman recently. Just after haven a baby she look amazing... She was trying on a few different things, as all mummy's know after haven a baby and trying to loose that baby weight can be tough...
Any ways this lady looked really good after three months
What she said to me while trying on clothes has stuck with me...
She said " this is my body I'm not going to change, this is it so I've to work with it" 
She didn't no what I was thinking when she said this...but in my head she wasn't putting her self down she was owning her shape  owning how she looked and you no what ladies she came across to me as a confident women a beautiful women she has learned to like her for her...even after haven her baby she was so positive and it was amazing to see tbh

We all want to be this and that...
We need to learn to love our selfs...
In power one another give some one a simple little compliment.

Just a nice thing to say to some one can really perk them up, I no cause I see it all the time in work

So if ye do anything today 
Try love you and know you are gorgeous 
Whatever size or shape๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

Happy Sunday and thanks for reading
Love
