I have been a bit MIA lately. I was hit by the cold from hell. (un)Fortunately it was doing my holidays so I was able to just rest and get well. My daughter was sick at the same time, which was a blessing in disguise because it meant she did not have her usual bounce, meaning we both spent about a week just cuddling and wallowing in our mutual self pity!

I decided to get back into it with this weeks theme. I initially had another dress in mind that had a more pronounced ruffle on the neckline, However after struggling to pull it's chiffon fabric over my baby bump I realised that it simply was not going to work! It seems bubs had had a growth spurt!

After another dig in my wardrobe I turned up this dress. I think I have featured it on here before. The colour is just lovely, with coral tones. It was a great to wear something a bit brighter, as I have been wearing lots of black lately. I quite like dresses that have a slight ruffle on the bust, as I am very small busted (a barely there B). The ruffle makes the bust look larger, which balances out my wider hips.

My make up was kept super simple. I have bought some Natio BB cream and it is just wonderful. It gives me the perfect amount of coverage, and a little goes a long way. I am finding that if I want more coverage i just do some contouring and concealing with my concealer palate, then put BB cream on over the top, and I have a great even coverage. Today I just popped on primer, BB cream, mascara and a coral coloured gloss.

Have you tried BB creams? If not, give them a go. They are great if you prefer a lighter coverage, and they do wonders for evening out skin tones.
