Preggy in Style

This year is probably just a good year to be pregnant. I have a couple of friends who either just gave birth or still expecting moms. As a matter of fact, my very good friend “Joanne” from the Philippines is soon to be a mom and her recent post about finding it hard to fit on her old clothes anymore inspired me to make this post. I’m sure she’ll be shopping for new maternity clothes soon and I hope she will be able to get an idea on what to have for her new set of wardrobe through this blog.

Some women out there are just even scared to try on a maternity dress. Let’s face it, your figure is going to change now but that does not mean you can’t look stunning and beautiful when you’re pregnant. More than anything else though is the comfort you will get when you wear the right clothes on your pregnancy stage. At BellaBlue Maternity, you can find several tops, jeans, shorts, or petite dresses that offer a wonderful selection of style and comfort for all seasons. They even have this ever popular T-shirt, nursing tops and tank tops selections for the more casual look and of course the long sleeve designer maternity tops for more of the formal and business look, as well as maternity sweaters and sweatshirts. Take your time and browse through their selection.

Beauty Secrets Tag

I don't consider myself vain, however, like most women, I'd like to feel comfortable with the products and things that I'm using. I noticed that I got more acne-prone here than when I was in the Philippines. I have no idea why since the weather here is supposed to make my skin dry and thus lessen breakouts. Anyway, I'd like to share some of the things that I use for my beauty regimen.

My Foundation: Before, I only use foundation when there's special occasions like parties but when I got here I tried putting on foundation when I go out. I was using L'oreal True Blend Liquid Foundation but to my dismay, I started to get a lot of breakouts so I stopped using it and don't use foundation at all.

My Blush: I use Estee Lauder Blush All Day (Pink Sand). It was given by an American friend from Illinois.

My Day Cream: I use Neutrogena Non-Comedogenic Oil-Free Fresh Moisture Ultra-Light Moisturizer.

My Lipstick: To prevent my lips from chapping, I use Aveeno Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner with SPF15. When I go out, I put on L'oreal Extreme Spice Lipstick.

My Essential Beauty Product: I'm entering my 2nd month of using Pro-Active Acne Treatment. It kinda helps drying out my acne and I hope it will prevent new ones from forming.

My favorite Make-up product: Nothing in particular. I use different brands for my make-up and I think L'oreal, Revlon, Avon works better for me so far.

My Perfume: I have a collection of Bath and Body Works body spray. I use it for my everyday needs.

My Nails: Colorless...But when I feel like putting some color to it, I'd like to use lighter color to complement my dark skin.

My Feet: I just wash it everyday and put on some Nivea or Bath and Body Works Lotion.

My hands: I use Nivea or sometimes Bath and Body Works Lotion.

Three Products to bring on a deserted island: Colgate toothpaste, Pro-active Treatment and Avon deodorant

Women I admire for their beauty: Charlize Theron, Ashley Judd, Marian Rivera and Ruffa Gutierrez

Women with the best Sense of Style: Kate Hudson

My ultimate dream: To dress up fashionably and be trendy. =)

My favorite fashion Publication: Vogue

I wanna know your beauty secrets girls! This is for you, Monica, Juliana, Chrissy, Prily, Poray, Lira, Avee, Vannie, Loannah and Francine. Oh by the way, thanks for this tag from a pretty friend of mine from California, Felicity.

How To Look 10 Pounds Thinner in Photos

I don't know about some but most women (me included) love to have their pictures taken. Proof to that are the thousands of pictures we shared in our Multiply and Friendster accounts. I mean, there's totally nothing wrong with it. We feel good about posing in front of the camera and sharing these to our family and friends in an online album. But wouldn't it be more exciting if we know some tips on how to pose and look thinner in our photos without having to resort to Photoshop?

I was browsing through the internet for some stuff that I could write for my blog when I came across with this article from I thought this is pretty interesting since taking pictures is part of our usual activities. I haven't tried these tips personally yet but who knows this might really make us look and feel good in our photos. Allow me to share it to you, guys.

Secret No. 1: Turn partially sideways to the camera, planting one foot in front of the other. Point your toe to the camera and place your weight on your back foot.

Secret No. 2: Pull head forward slightly to minimize any appearance of a double chin.

Secret No. 3: Hold arms slightly away from your body. This keeps upper arm flab from flattening out and therefore appearing flabbier (much like thighs do when one sits on a couch).

Secret No. 4: Pull shoulders back, chest forward and gently suck stomach in. Be careful not to suck stomach so far in that your ribs show, thereby causing those who later see the photo to cluck to themselves in a bemused, sing-song voice, "She's sucking i-in."

Secret No. 5: If you can get away with it without looking like a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Girl wannabe, try the look away trick. To do this, look away from the camera, then turn towards it, breaking into a smile just before the camera clicks. Your smile will appear fresh, not frozen. This trick takes practice behind closed, locked doors.

When taking a photo it's also important the photographer does not snap the picture from below. This adds another 20-50 pounds to the 10 pounds automatically and annoying added by the camera.

More tips on looking 10 pounds thinner in photos:

Use objects you are holding to your advantage by placing them in front of parts of you you'd prefer to hide. A purse or corsage in front of your belly. A jacket slung over the shoulder. (Gwyneth Paltrow used a perfectly placed purse to hide her baby bump before she announced her pregnancy with Apple).

It's not just black that makes you look thinner. Wearing an entire outfit of just one color will do the trick as well, whether it be white, beige, brown, blue or red. One color tends to elongate your figure. Avoid entire outfits in pink, however, unless you are four years old or younger.

There you go! Just try to practice these tips in front of the mirror and lock your door first so your little ones or your hubbies wouldn't think you're too vain. I expect to see future photos following these tips then. (*smile)
