Blake Lively and her, of course, perfect bump, perfect baby shower, perfect ……

When I heard the news that Blake Lively was pregnant, I could already foresee what we would learn about the pregnancy.

It would be Perfect.


Blake has really controlled her public image to be one of stepford wifeish. She has the perfect body, hair, marriage and now pregnancy.  I realise this sounds a like an ‘eating crackers’ moment and, to be honest, it probably is.  I guess I’m just tiring of the perfect celebrity life, pregnancy, marriage etc.  It makes me feel inadequate with my messy house, not-bathed-every-night-so-sue-me kids, haphazard meal times and the bedtime bullshit routine that we go through every single night.  It’s exhausting.

So when I see these images and read her lifestyle (of course) blog – Preserve – there’s a full on threat response and it manifests through the words on this blog.

“With a new baby on the way there is so much to do!  But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux…There are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had.”

Add to this list – leaking boobs, sore nipples, tantrums (mine, not the child), the new daily routine of sleep, feed and cry.  But to add a little good to this list – the amazing feeling when your baby smiles for the first time, when she laughs for the first time, when you look back at her tiny clothes and are amazed by how big she has grown, when she says mama or dada….every single time.

Enjoy your pregnancy Blake.  You look amazing.

Teresa Palmer lets it all hang out!

Just yesterday I commented that Teresa Palmer’s tshirt was a little too short for my liking – almost displaying her large bump.  In these photographs, you can see what I was afraid of!  Dressed very casually, Teresa’s shirt does not have enough length to cover her almost-ready-to-pop baby belly.

I get that Teresa is in the very last stages of her pregnancy and she would be wanting to wear the most comfortable clothing…..but this was not her best look.

The shirt, obviously, does not have enough length and her slip ons look really old and dirty.  This outfit could have been improved by swapping the shirt for a white singlet or tank top and swapping the slip ons for a pair of comfy thongs (flip flops).

Australian actress Teresa Palmer looks lovely in maxi skirt

Recently married, Australian actress Teresa Palmer, was photographed shopping on Christmas Eve.  Using these techniques, Teresa looked cool and chic dressed in all brown tones.  The maxi skirtis a great pregnancy staple – allowing for your bump to grow.  Teresa has kept her overall look as casual, yet well put together.  I love the combination of the simple white singlet and the tan hat.

The only bummer for me is the shoes – a flat sandal / thong (flipflop) would have looked better.

Scroll down to the last photo to see Teresa and her husband (Mark Webber, not the formula one race car driver) on their wedding day.  Teresa looks beautiful in this photograph – simple hair and makeup highlights how gorgeous she really is.
