On style, she rules

We just moved to Hong Kong and I cried when I found out I'm pregnant again. I'm happy, but didn't keep any of my old favourite maternity clothes by Isabella Oliver, the only brand that didn't make me feel like a whale. I checked the website, but I couldn't see if it's sold here. Just thinking about having to shop for more pregnancy gear is freaking me out.

Taking off your make-up is almost as important as putting it on - cleansing your face thoroughly helps to prevent spots and blemishes (plus it keeps your pillow smudge-free).
