How would you describe your personal style?

I would describe my personal style as athleisure chic. I like to mix functional and pretty pieces together for a look that can take me anywhere.

Has this changed since being pregnant?

I've embraced a lot of different silhouettes. Prior to being pregnant, i always went for loose, oversized tops but now that I have a bump, I some of my things to be fitted to show it off!

What is your favourite maternity style?

My favourite piece is the Soon Maternity Paige Long Sleeved Tunic! You can dress it up or down and it is SO soft.

What is the best part about being pregnant?

I love being able to share every moment with my little guy. You have a built in best friend wherever you go!

Have you been craving anything?

Yes! I'm loving chocolate more than ever!

What have been your beauty essentials whilst being pregnant?

I've noticed my skin changed from being oily to dry once i got pregnant (Hello, hormones) so I've loved Lala Retro Whipped Cream by Drunk Elephant to keep my face moisturized. I also can't live without my Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer.

What about being a dad is Jordan most excited about?

He is most excited for snuggle time with the new baby! He loves babies and has wanted one forever!

What about being a mum are you most excited about?

I'm most excited to see what he will look like and to get to finally meet the little person I've been getting to know for 9 months.

Best advice you can give to other expecting mums?

Make a point to talk and think positively about your body throughout your pregnancy. It can be hard as you put on weight, get stretch marks and cellulite, and feel exhausted but it's worth it. Remember your baby is part of your changing body and you should always be greatful for both baby and body!
