STYLE CARTEL MOM - FEEL BEAUTIFUL THIS VALENTINES DAY WITH THE PERFECT DRESS BY ASOS With Valentines Day just round the corner, future mummies to be are probably dreading that day thinking... what on earth am I gonna wear with a massive belly... I have been there too. You want to feel beautiful for your hubby, and Asos knows how to make it happen!

Wedding season is now in full swing, and I have to admit, that after receiving a couple of invitations for my friends' weddings I thought to myself..."what can I possibly wear that won't make me look like a cute puffy bun! While seven months pregnant, there are not masses of choices for occasional wear and legging usually are the most comfy option anyway! But I am sure that most mummies to be will agree with me that we still would like to look nice when we go out to celebrate those special moments with friends and family.

I adore clothes, I love fashion and I look forward to updating my wardrobe with a few choice items every season. Spring/Summer is my favourite! Not this year though. Nope, I am with child. Now before you tell me off and say something daft like "But there are so many options for pregnant women these days", stop right there. The lack of choice is bitterly disappointing, even if it is better than it was ten years ago! Yes, fashion is the more frivolous side to pregnancy but it still matters. Honestly, as a first time mum-to-be it's all come as quite a shock to me. I had higher hopes. Perhaps many brands believe that being pregnant means that you want to spend every single penny on pushchairs and baby grows; that you've effectively given up on yourself? That's why I was so excited to find out about ASOS Maternity Essentials Pack!
