Baby Shopping Bug…

Yes. I have the Baby Shopping Bug. Badly. 

I want ALL the things! ALL OF THEM! 

I’m 22 weeks so still a while to go yet, but I mean, I SHOULD BE PREPARED! IT’S ONLY SENSIBLE!! 

My theme is grey and white stars. Give yourself a moment to gush and ooh and aah. 

Obviously I don’t know what I’m having so it’s a nice neutral option and goes well with my ever growing grey obsession. 

Here’s what I’ve achieved so far – 

The changing unit.

This is from Baby Elegance and the RRP is €99.99. Don’t forget I’m running a competition on Facebook to win either one of these or a €100 Baby Elegance voucher too!! 

Yesterday, I became obsessed with Nursery curtains. I was online searching for the perfect pair like my life depended on it. Because, you know, it’s October, and the baby is due in February, so I HAVE TO HAVE CURTAINS TODAY!! 

All the ones I wanted were fairly expensive as beautiful as they were, but I ended up getting a brilliant deal on Amazon! These grey and white blackout eyelet curtains cost £23 and with shipping my total was €34.23!!!

Now, they haven’t arrived yet but I have high hopes based on the reviews so fingers crossed!! (Ooh and if they’re nice I’m planning on getting the blue version for the boys room!!) 

So yeh, the changing unit and a white IKEA day bed are literally the only things in the room at the moment. The curtains will be hung about 3 seconds after the postman delivers them and I inevitably race up the stairs while I’m opening them! 

I plan on painting the walls a really light grey colour and getting a nice wall decal. I’ve also spent a ridiculous amount of time online gooing over changing bags, foot muffs and bedding!! 

I mean, honestly, if there was ever a reason to have a baby it’s to buy baby furniture and decorate a room! So. Much. Fun. 


Now, I’m off to find a nice matching light shade…….
