Last year, we celebrated my sister's 30th birthday in true style! To the envy of all my friends and colleagues, we decided to escape to the gorgeous Thailand for 2 weeks. Staying on the wonderful island of Phuket (Thailand's biggest island), this trip to Phuket earned itself a place on my 'epic moments in my life thus far' list. There is so much to do and so many gems that you really shouldn't miss out on. Here is a list of the top 5 things to do in Thailand.

Pregnancy, for some women is not a fun ride at all. Lets face it, it can be a tough old time. Dealing with a gigantic belly, stretch marks over your previously flawless skin, swollen ankles/ feet/ face/ facial features/ everything, general weight gain, morning sickness, a lack of sleep, extreme fatigue because of this lack of sleep, tender boobies, countless trips to the loo... need I go on? But, in spite of all of this, being pregnant is one of the most beautiful, surreal and inexplicable experiences a woman will ever have.

My pregnancy was incredible, albeit challenging at times. But to be totally honest, I was fortunate enough not to suffer from any swelling or extreme weight gain. My issue was more to do with with nausea and vomiting, but even with the nausea, I enjoyed every second of being pregnant- well almost every second.

After what will soon be a one year hiatus, I am returning to my blog with a huge change in my life. I have become a mummy to a beautifully perfect little boy. I spent the best part of 2014 sporting a lovely baby bump, coping with morning sickness, planning and preparing for the new arrival, holidaying in Thailand and generally enjoying the last few months I would have to myself.

I always promised myself I would do a baby bump photoshoot when I got pregnant, so as soon as I had a good sized bump, I did just that. Hiring 3 hours of studio space from Idezign studios in North London, I managed to get some pretty cool shots that I was really pleased with.
