What Are Your Maternity Clothes Styles?

~ Posted on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 at 12:18 AM ~

Being pregnant doesn't mean the end of the world for our wardrobe selections or that you are going to end up wearing huge size clothing throughout your pregnancy!

Personally, I feel that being pregnant should not be a hindrance to us in being a stylish and yet looking comfortable as a preggy mum! And I also believe that we should be proud of our growing belly instead of hiding it under baggy or big sized clothes.

Of course, the wardrobe choices will be much lesser compared to pre-pregnancy time but I'm always the type of person who goes for blouses and pants that can 'grow' with my growing body size hehehe...

I'm close to 8 months pregnant now and my maternity clothes are still pretty OK so far... As for my maternity clothes styles, I will try to mix and match blouses or comfortable T-shirts with my maternity pants. I do have a couple of hand-me-downs maternity dresses from my sisters-in law but most of these dresses couldn't fit me anymore. So, I still prefer the good ol' mix and match styles of mine.

Though of course, I do wish that my maternity clothes styles could be more like this:

Or something casual and yet still chic looking like this:

So what are your maternity clothes styles?

Cute Tops and other Essentials

~ Posted on Friday, July 1, 2011 at 9:47 AM ~

I am a  fan of comfortable and pretty looking tops. Call me boring but when I was still working, most of my casual tops that I own, I could also wear it during my casual, off the working days. In Malaysia, it's pretty much summer all year round and to be wearing a clothing which you feel comfortable in, I think that is what matters most.

And now, as a pregnant mother (7 months now), our wardrobe styles are much more limited but that should not be a hindrance to us in being a stylish and yet looking comfortable as a preggy mum with modest clothing.

I mean, there are lots of comfortable, pretty looking and yet stylish and cute tops that a pregnant mum like me could wear! Just look at some of this tops (they may not be marketed for pregnant mums but hey, I think it'd look great on preggy me!):

Now the good thing about owning tops like this is you can mix and easily match it with your other clothings - skirts, pants, jeans and so on. I remember back in my working days, I would wear a cardigan or jacket over a camisole and still look professional in it. There were times when I would even wear a nice top over a sleeveless dress.

So what about you? What is your fashion style or tips you can share with me?

Gifts Ideas for Men...

~ Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 10:01 AM ~

Hubby's birthday is one and a half month more to come, I have no idea what to get for him this year. When it comes to thinking of the birthday gifts for men, I'm always stuck with clothing, wallets and last year was the Star Craft 2 game.

I came across this website and saw this very cool gift idea! My hubby is crazy about war stuff, the history, the army tanks, the whatever sieges and battles and weaponry and wouldn't it be great if I can get this for my hubby's birthday this year?

A tank ride experience in this World War 2-era Centurion Tank! Whoaa! What a unique and memorable way to give your loved ones for his birthday huh?! I bet he'd go berserk with this gift! If only I have the money and the logistics to make this a reality!!

Or how about a gift in the form of an experience in race car driving? I've seen my hubby playing with car racing games on his computer and he has downloaded an app for a racing game onto my iPad as well. Wouldn't it be fun to see my hubby enjoying this?

Gotta start cracking my head soon to think of what to get him for his birthday this year... or should I just saw Spicy Baby is his birthday gift this year? Hehehe...

Now, what are the gift ideas you can recommend to give the special someone in your life?
