Beauty, Fashion Treats for you and those 9 months...

The mom to be market is pretty lucrative, and with the array of products, it’s mind-boggling which ones to use. Each stretch oil with the lure of promises to insuring that you will have no stretch marks after giving birth, and each with a price tag higher than the next, how do you choose?!?!

I would put together a list of my favorites. Some are a little pricier so I would recommend keeping an eye out for sale and buying enough to last you throughout the next 9 months.


  • Dermologica Ultra Calming Serum: the smell is soothing, and the serum helps with redness for your face.
  • Burts Bee Mama Bee Belly Butter
  • Burts Bee Mama Bee Leg and Foot Creme
  • Bio Oil: been using this since my second trimester in conjunction with the Burt’s Bee Belly Butter, I find this to smells the best and absorbs quickly, leaving the skin soft and not oily.
  • Human +kind day and night cream for parched skin
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, comes in many fantastic colors.
  • Clarins tonic body treatment oil for itchy bump and stretch marks: the pricest out of all the products I picked, but many moms swear by it
  • Butter Nail Polish(no harmful chemicals): great colors, but a bit pricey.


  • Hot Milk: great nightwear that offers built in chest support so you don't have to wear a sleep bra as well.  My recommendation, scout out sales.
  • Cake Lingerie: It is important to have good support for the girls while you are pregnant . Most women go get fitted around 2nd and 3rd trimester. Wearing incorrect fitting bras can block your milk ducts. Cake's bras has fantastic support and offers 6 hooks & eyes for your ever-expanding ribcage.(which will shrink  back after birth) The price range is high but the quality speaks for itself.

---- has a sale on brand above going on now.

 Cheaper nightwear brands can be found at: Marks and Spencer and Mothercare and Dunnes.


Hopefully you have a  few maxi dresses and loose fitting tops that will carrying you through the first few months. When you find yourself no longer fitting into your clothes, its time to show off the bump and buy some cute maternity clothes!

  • Top Shop Maternity: Fab dresses
  • H& M Maternity: love their skinny jeans!
  • Forever 21: Black leggings, comfortable tees
  • Mothercare: Can be hit or miss with clothes
  • Hatch: such a beautiful collection, worth a look. 
  • Bellydance Maternity;
  • J Brand:
