Hi there lovelies, 
Here we are then already at Week 15.
The Baby Bump Updates below but first watch our weekly Pregnancy Vlog YouTube Video...
Happy Watching...




How far along?

15 weeks going into week 16 now.

Maternity clothes?

I've got the one pair of trousers that I'm loving, but I've also just brought a maternity skirt. 
More on that in next weeks Vlog.

Stretch marks?

None :) 
But I am using plenty of cream and oils day and night... will share more on that soon!

Sleep:

I'm sleeping well... except I've been trying to sleep on my side more now and my hips have been aching a little... However I've found that putting a pillow between my knees helps, also I'm looking to get the maternity pillow soon.

Best moment this week:

Early birthday celebrations with Chris eating cake and drinking tea... see more in the Pregnancy Vlog this week.

Anything making you queasy or sick?

No this weeks been fab! 

Gender:

Symptoms:

Getting hot flashes... All of a sudden I get soooo warm and I can't control it! Also eating hot food does not help! :(

Happy or moody most of the time:

Happy of course.

Looking forward to:

Baby Bump Update Week 14

Thursday, 10 July 2014


Hi there lovelies, 
Welcome along to Week 14's Baby Bump Update! 
First though here's our weekly Pregnancy Vlog YouTube Video...
Happy Watching...




Also... earlier in the week I did a First Trimester Update so make sure you have a watch...

How far along?
14 weeks just going into 15 weeks

Maternity clothes?
So far I've only worn one pair of Maternity Trousers, but I think I'm going to need to invest in some more stuff this week!

Stretch marks?
None :) 
I'm still using the pure Shea Butter on my tummy every night.

Sleep: 
I'm sleeping really well at the moment. However I am trying to sleep more on my left hand side now as I read that was good for baby bump. I think I'm going to have to invest this week in a maternity pillow.

Best moment this week:
 Roast Dinner at Tom & Serg earlier in the week. Chris & I had a real giggle and the food was lovely

Anything making you queasy or sick?
I was feeling really nauseous at the beginning of the week however now it seems to have settled down again. Thanks goodness!  

Gender: 
No idea yet!

Symptoms:
Except for a little bit of nausea earlier on in the week and sensitive teeth,
 I've been really good pregnancy wise... however I'm still battling this sinus infection! 

Happy or moody most of the time: 
Happy... just a little grumpy with the sinus infection thing still... however I'm getting better.

Looking forward to: 
Going to Modesh World on Saturday night to present on the Dubai 92 stage and give away a rather large prize. Exciting!

Tuesday Tunes

Tuesday, 8 July 2014

1. Lana Del Rey - Shades Of Cool

Her haunting vocals in this track are beautifully complimented with everything else in the mix. 
It's a song filled with so much emotion and frustration as you can hear from the lyrics.


2. Red Sky July - 'Lay Down Your Love'

If you enjoyed Alisha's Attic in the 90's you're bound to like Red Sky July. Shelly Poole  from Alisha's Attic joined forces with  hubbie Ally McErlaine (known for his work in the band Texas) and Charity Hair to form Red Sky July a few years back, they've gone from strength to strength and will shortly be releasing a new album, this is the first single which I just love! 

3. Jennifer Lopez - First Love

Really liking this right now,it's just a really just pop song!

4. Mike Mago - Man Hands (Kraak & Smaak Remix)

This has kinda an old skool feel to it. The funky beats mixed with a great vocal make this an easy listen.

5. Anna Lunoe - All Out

Here's a lady who's a DJ, Producer and Vocalist. This track hasn't got a lot to it.... however it is an great listen and has a nice flow to it. Worth a listen and a lady to take note of I think!

I love checking out +MyCupcakeAddiction . I'm not great at baking (as you know), however I do like looking at
the brightly coloured cakes.


2. Mandy's Sugarcraft

I seem to be having a thing about pretty cakes at the moment! I had to include these cupcake though as they are 
perfect for right now. What do you think to them?

I was searching out Summer Nail Art Designs and I came across this article. I thought I would share as there's 
some great designs all in one place.

4. ISmellGood
All of these perfumed oils sound so, so good! I really like the bottle designs too.

5. SeraphinaHandmades

Baby Bump Update Week 13

Thursday, 3 July 2014



Hi there lovelies,
So as you know we announced our exciting news with a YouTube Video last week if you haven't seen that yet find it over at "Clare Elise Sparkles YouTube Channel".
We had great fun filming and editing together and after having such great feedback we've actually decided to do a pregnancy vlog following our journey out here in Dubai so that we can keep you up to date. 
Also a fellow blogger +Liparazzi1 recently had a little baby boy, I'd like to say a HUGE congratulations to them and I'd like to thank her for sharing her baby bump updates and inspiring me to do my own.

So here's how it will go... from now on, on a Thursday, you can expect a picture and post on the sparkly blog and brand new sparkly YouTube Video on my channel each week... so please click subscribe.

This week's video is here...


How far along?
13 weeks just going into week 14 today according to my dating scan.

Maternity clothes?
Yup! As you will see from our YouTube Video this week I gave in and popped on a pair of trousers from Heavenly Bump
The trousers are slightly big right now... but oh so comfortable! 

Stretch marks?
None at the moment. I invested in a pure Shea Body Butter which I use every evening before bed and in the day I'm currently using a body butter from The Body Shop.

Sleep: 
I'm sleeping really well right now ... the only thing that has disturbed my sleep though for the last two weeks is this sinus infection and a cough... but I'm much better now.

Best moment this week:
 Having Iftar at The Peppermill Restaurant with Chris. It was a lovely meal and it was nice to have some quality time together.

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Nope all is really good.

Gender: 
No idea yet!

Symptoms:
None. I'm feeling really good except for the sinus infection.

Happy or moody most of the time: 
Happy, just annoyed with the sinus thing lol :)

Looking forward to: 
The weekend and presenting "80's 90's and nothing else."
