THE BETTER NEXT DAY MATTRESS | BRIGHTER MATTRESS CO

Tuesday, November 29, 2016
So, you may or may not know that Jack, bump and I just moved into our new home this month, hallelujah! I've talked about it in a couple of blog posts but it's basically been a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I'm so pleased with our new home that will be our first home as a little family of three come January, eep!

Of course, moving meant that we were in need of buying pretty much everything that you need in a home. One of those things being a bed and a mattress. I was actually contacted by the lovely people over at The Brighter Mattress Co to see if I would like to try out one of their memory foam mattresses*! I've never had a memory foam mattress before, so I was pretty excited to now be the proud owner of what Jack and I are now convinced is 100% the way forward with mattresses!

ACCESSORISE WITH SAMMYDRESS

Monday, November 28, 2016
A little while ago I was contacted by the lovely people over at Sammydress to see if I wanted to place a little order for myself! Once I'd had a quick browse on their website, I knew that I couldn't turn down the opportunity! Sammydress is basically an online outlet for loads of super cute clothing pieces and accessories! Being pregnant, I've really struggled with clothes in the sense that I've found most maternity items are just.. not that nice and sizing up in normal clothing doesn't always.. work! So I decided to go for some super cute accessories from Sammydress to update my wardrobe a little bit for the autumn/winter season!

VEGAN CHOCOLATE + BAOBAB SUPER SMOOTHIE | NAUGHTY BUT NICE

Friday, November 25, 2016
Since being pregnant, smoothie's have been a really big part of my everyday diet. Mainly because it means that I can get loads of fruits, veggies and nutrients into my body in a super easy and tasty way and they're ridiculously easy to make! But sometimes, it's nice to make a smoothie that's a little bit naughty. None the less, this naughty but nice smoothie is exactly that, naughty and nice!

When the lovely people over at Pandavita got in touch to see if I wanted to try out their organic baobab powder, I couldn't possibly turn it down! So of course, I decided to create a new smoothie recipe for you all!

REDEMPTION PALETTE ICONIC 3 | MAKEUP REVOLUTION | REVIEW + GIVEAWAY

Thursday, November 24, 2016
A couple of weeks ago I had popped into Superdrug to pick up some essentials and of course, I stumbled and fell over to the Makeup Revolution stand! Every time I blink I swear there is a new palette or lip product out! It's impossible to keep track of, but this does mean that treating myself to a great quality and pocket friendly product is pretty easy.

"You go girl" *img source (edited)
It's Monday morning and I'm writing this at my coffee table in our new home. It's pouring with rain outside, it's a little chilly but man do I feel proud. We did it, we moved! Okay, I wasn't able to do a lot of the physical work but I sure as hell did a lot of mental work(think paperwork and dictating haha)!

DECOR WISHLIST | MONOCHROME

Decor Wishlist | Monochrome | Love, Maisie
As this post goes live, it will be our moving house day, woohoo! I'm beyond excited to move into our new home! Be sure to keep up with the move over on my twitter, where I'm sure I'll be complaining ALL day haha! So to keep in today's theme, I though I'd share a little decor wishlist. I've been buying so many little bits and bobs over the last 6 weeks so looking at home decor is my new favourite past time.

"I am focused and persistent. I will never quit" | Quote of the week | #79 | Love, Maisie
"I am focused and persistent. I will never quit." *img source
So, this weeks quote is more of a positive affirmation, but when I found it over on Pinterest, it really resonated with me. I have decided that I'm going to write this out in pretty handwriting on a little piece of paper and stick it to my mirror for the rest of the week, so that every time I see it I am reminded to keep repeating it to myself.

SUNDAY STYLE BOARD | #48

Sunday Style Board #48 Love, Maisie
If you weren't sick of seeing yellow and mustard things on my blog, you'll certainly be bored of it now! I've set out this weeks style board a bit differently and I quite like it! Let me know what you think! It gives you a bit more of an indication as to what you'd be spending altogether for the whole look, which personally I think is pretty useful!

BUMP UPDATE | WEEKS 27 + 28

Friday, November 11, 2016
If you missed weeks 25 + 26, you can catch them right here!

If you follow me on social media, you'll probably have noticed that I took some down time during week 27. Unfortunately, week 27 was the worst week of my pregnancy so far. I've mentioned a couple of times that I want to be as honest as possible within these pregnancy updates and so I'm going to try my best to write about week 27 of my pregnancy without dampening your mood as you're reading!

Week 27 came around and for some reason, I just didn't feel.. great. I didn't feel right or like myself. In all honesty, I think the only way to accurately describe it is to say that I felt depressed. God, I hate that word. You'll often find me saying sad or sads when I'm talking about low feelings, but I think during week 27, it got to the point where sad just wasn't an accurate description anymore.

ANTI-AGING SKIN MIST | L'OR DES PHARAONS

anti-aging skin mist | L'or des Pharaons | The Health Factory | Love, Maisie
I was recently contacted to see if I would be interested in trying out The Health Factory's L'Or des Pharaons(the gold of the Pharaohs) anti-aging skin mist! I was quite intrigued at the sound of this product and it's never to early to start preparing for wrinkles, is it? Heck, if I can scare the buggers off I'll be more than happy to!

MY FAVOURITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS

Wednesday, November 09, 2016
Instagram has to be my favourite social media platform. Sure, the game of gaining is a pretty hard one right now, but scrolling through looking at other people's amazing feeds is probably one of my biggest past times right now! Today, I thought I'd share a handful of my current favourite Instagram accounts!
Olivia (@livpurvis)
First up, we have the blogging babe that is Olivia! Currently, you can expect lots of lovely fresh and pastel shades over on Liv's Instagram, it's super refreshing from a lot of the darker autumn/winter themed feeds that seem to be knocking about at the moment. Not only do I adore Liv's feed, but her blog What Olivia Did is one of my favourite's too. I'm sure you're already a reader, but if not, I highly recommend having a peep!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK | #78

Monday, November 07, 2016
"Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day"
I'll be talking a little bit more about it this Friday in my 27 + 28 week bump update, but if you follow me on social media, you might know that last week wasn't my best week. I think it's really important to remember, especially as you get older and are exposed to more and more of the world, that it's pretty much impossible to wake up every single day and have a good day. Bad days exist, for everyone.

SUNDAY STYLE BOARD | #47

Sunday style board | #47 | Love, Maisie blog
Sorry not sorry for more mustard/yellow appearing on the blog today. What can I say, I'm obsessed! For today's style board, I'm still keeping it cosy. I'm not sure if you noticed, but it's pretty chilly outside in the UK at the moment! We've had some foggy mornings and even an icy one today! This oversized jumper is something super random that I found on a website called Pink Queen. The little lady on the front reminds me of the old ladies in Mulan, am I right? It's available online for just under £13!

ULTIMATE NURSERY INSPIRATION

Saturday, November 05, 2016
As I write this blog post, I am 28 weeks + 3 days pregnant with our little baby boy! I know I say this all the time, but how crazy is that?! We're moving in less than 2 weeks and I'm so excited to finally be able to get buba's room started! It's super frustrating seeing so many other people almost finishing their little one's rooms by now, so I'm more than ready!

Today, I thought I'd share a little bit of nursery decor inspiration with you all. I've been scouring pinterest for months now trying to decide what sort of colour palette and theme would suit best for our little boy, so if you're on the hunt for some ideas, keep reading! (You can also follow me on Pinterest too, muhahaha)

If you saw this post, you'll know that this year I've fallen in love with mustard home decor, so when it came to scouting out ideas for the nursery, mustard's against more neutral shades came in as high contenders!
