You may or may not have noticed that I updated my blog layout. I'm a Gemini, I get bored very easily and I was so over my old layout. I liked it but I wanted a change... It's as good as a holiday some say, I disagree, I'd take a holiday any day! Anyhooooo, simple black and white is how I've always loved a blog to look. The pictures are supposed to do all the talking not distracting colourful blog layouts. Not that it doesn't work for others though, my personal preference is minimalism. 

To go with the new look, its only fitting that I've got an outfit post where I'm wearing black right?! Black has sorta become a comfort for me, I naturally gravitate towards black pieces when getting dressed.
I gained so much weight during pregnancy that in my head I'm still that whale with the big baby bump. Oh, by the way, thanks to no one (I have no friends) for saying that I was a whale and should not be seen! I was looking at some photo's on my canon earlier and was so disgusted at how huge I was (am?). "Damn girl, you shoulda stayed in the house!" Is what I told myself as I went through them. 
You know you get pretty pregnant and you get ugly pregnant... Example, Kourtney K was pretty pregnant while Kim K was ugly pregnant. Let's just say I was Kim K pregnant. Not a good look. Thank the heavens that's over! For now at least! ;)

I have an outfit post from last weekend where I'm not wearing black! Oh yeah, so look out for that. I can't wait to post it, the pics turned out great!

Hope you like the new look! If not, that's ok too... Won't really bother me that much. 
Sorry. Not Sorry? ;)
