Refashions and home decor


 The downstairs living room 
They say your home should reflect your personality and your wardrobe. Well, my home is bright, colourful and full of pattern, I love bold colour. We only moved into this house 5 months ago and I've been putting my stamp on it slowly but surely; there are still many rooms to tackle but our home is starting to take shape. With baby only 6 and a bit weeks away I'm keen to get as much done as possible, I've even got the sewing machine out! 
With a tight budget and practically a whole house to furnish, I've looked to ebay and op shops to pick up some bargains.
The wicker furniture is from the op shop (sofa and table for $70 and pretzel chair $50) but the fabric was dated and in dire need of some love. Ikea has a great range of fabrics, but you have to be quick, they turn around quickly. I covered the chair for $15 and the sofa for about $20. 
Just starting on the nursery, to be continued...

Wee tartan terror

dress: Shop on Lygon St
tights: Sportsgirl
scotty dog brooch: Gift
shoes: Op shop

There's a wee tartan terror in my tum itching to come out and say hello. She jumps around morning, noon and night keeping her mammy up. Yes folks, this little bean is indeed a girl! 
I'm very excited to be having a wee lass and can't wait to meet her, we're gonna have so much fun. 
Will she inherit my Scottish/irish complexion or don a mop of blond hair like her daddy? For the first few years my son Mani had pure blond hair and folks would regularly ask if he was indeed mine. Recall one lady actually retorting "How did you get a blond baby?", wee bit rude I thought. 
Will she inherit my roman nose that took me 20 years to love? Will she be tall like her daddy or a shorty like me? Only another 8 and a bit weeks till we welcome her into the world.
What will we call her?...

It's been a while, I know, after my last post about being inspired and all!...All talk and nae action. To be honest, I'm finding it hard to get motivated to post. Trying to come up with new content given my wardrobe has been culled and how many posts can you do in the skinny jeans er, here's another. 
My advice to any mum-to-be struggling out there to keep herself stylish, accessorise. 
Here, I've gone for head to toe accessories to lift what is a fairly standard preggy uniform; jeans and slouchy/comfy top. The Marcs trench that I picked up from the op shop has been a god send, I can throw it over the top of anything and it makes me feel polished.
Till next time...

Channelling Christina Hendricks

pencil skirt: ASOS
tights: ok ok
shirt: Decuba
shoes: Wittner
hair: from a bottle!

I woke up this morning and felt bleh, hair needed dyed, eye brows looking forest like, other areas in need of attention. So, I dusted myself off, covered those greys, popped on a pencil skirt, channelled Christina Hendricks, boom I feel better! 
Have a great weekend Love Sleekit x
