Some of my favourite maternity clothes (and by that I mean I didn’t throw them out after my first pregnancy, but actually kept them for my 2nd as unlike all the others I didn’t feel physically sick looking at them!) were the clothes my Mom purchased for me in Paris. Not only does this country produce amazing kids clothes, but they produce stunning maternity clothes allowing the Momma-to-be not to feel like a beached whale. I’m currently crushing on maternity store Hatch (although not pregnant may i add!) with their French-inspired collection.

On November 3rd, I attended the Mom’s in the City event at Yaletown store Saf and Benjamin. This was the first time I’d visited this lovely store so it was so much fun checking out all their stock and purchasing some early Christmas presents for my boys (from their crazy discount bin!) The evening featured various vendors such as Yummy Mummy Makeovers, Tawna Hill Baby Skin Care and Moo and the Bear. There was a prize draw and I actually won something (more on that later!) I must say, I absolutely loved all the products in the store (as you well know I am pretty picky when it comes to kids products) – owner, Sommer Sawchuk has incredible taste and thus the products lack Disney characters, fairy floss pinks and overdosing on dinosaurs (some of my fave products include this, this and this). Need to do some holiday shopping for your little loved ones at the store with the best view in Vancouver? Head down to Saf and Benjamin.

note the baby Hunters, aren’t they adorable?!
Fellow bloggers, do you ever get envious of any other style bloggers? or is it just me? there are two girls who have great blogs, great style and a ton of confidence. maybe it’s because they’re both skinny beautiful brunettes (my husband always looks over my shoulder when i’m checking out their blogs), are so young and have pre-baby bodies (like i used to have) or maybe it’s because they’re experimental with outfits in a way that i couldnever be and that they end up looking sooo stinkin’ chic and adorable. Anyways, as i love them both so much i thought i’d feature them today.

I have 4 looks today for Mom-to-be with at least two black items (because we all know that black is slimming!!) Here’s some ways you can incorporate ‘slimming’ black into your every day wear mixing it with colours and prints to make sure you’re the hottest Mom-to-be on the block!
Have a great weekend!
