I went to a Baby Shower for the first time over the weekend- the lucky mother-to-be is none other than my beautiful friend Karen of Finessence Photography. See our collaborations here, here, here and here…and more…Karen and I met at my first bloggerversary party (See here) and for the past year we have been inseparable. I am so blessed to have her as a friend and to be continuously inspired by her amazing work. Karen is going to be a yummy mummy soon!
I’m not getting clucky, I’m just admiring all the gorgeous photos on the Finessence Phography studio walls. I have my baby right here with me- Theodore! And of course, my baby behind the lens :)
I’ve never been to a baby-shower before, was thinking ‘what to wear?’ when I spotted my beloved Chloe dress and thought my new Bordeau Rue Bebelon booties from Habbot Studios would be a match in heaven. These are my favourite shoes I’ve purchased this year, they are so chic, comfortable and go with so many pieces in my wardrobe. Did I mention that they are on sale as well? They are 50%off! You can get a pair from their online store or come to Habbot’s POP UP STORE from Thursday 18th August until 30th September on level 1 of GPO opposite Belinda! Come before you miss out on your size! I’ll definitely be popping in soon!
Another lady I greatly admire and who never stops to have me in awe is Super Kawaii Mama, the divine Candice De Ville. She really is the ambassador of Glamour. She recently styled Karen for a vintage-inspired shoot to treasure the last trimester days of Karen’s fist child, the photos are breath-taking.
You are probably wondering we’re all wearing pegs. We played a game of ‘baby taboo’ where we were not allowed to say the word ‘baby’ and its variations. Should we accidently let is slip, we had to give our peg to the person who caught us out. Since I was one of the only non-mothers around and the word ‘baby’ is rarely in my vocab unless I’m speaking to my hubby, I just went around and asked everyone who had a child or was pregnant about their kid, and sure enough they all had to hand me their pegs within 5 minutes into our conversations. In the end I had 7 clips on my scarf. So yes, I won the ‘no-mention-of-baby’ game.
Thank you Karen for sharing this special day with us. I am praying for the safe delivery of your little bubba and for your amazing journey ahead. If it’s she is a girl, auntie Cecylia is going to have so much fun dressing her up!
I’ve contacted the winner who has scored herself a ticket to Mercedez-Benz Fashion Festival’s Grand finale show. Have a great time darl! I hope you are all having a gorgeous week. I’ve been working hard at the vets this week, cannot wait for Forever New’s launch tomorrow night! Now what to wear…
