The time is here for future husband and I to enjoy our last trip away before the baby arrives, and we chose to go to Dubai! Only an 8 hour flight away from drizzly Aberdeen, with the perks of high fashion shopping, amazing high teas, brunches and lying by the pool in the sun. Usually it would take me 3 seconds to pack for a summery holiday but being 6 months pregnant makes it much more difficult. Byebye flashy high heels, tight short dresses and midriffs and hello whatever I can fit into that won’t make me look like a sweaty inflated whale. Thank God I was able to find a few cute outfits and accessories to help me feel better about being the fattest girl in Dubai!
Not usually a fan of Primark but it has been a saviour for me to buy cheap cute tops to fit over my bump.

It is important for me to look after my skin especially when travelling as the altitudes tend to dry out your skin. Here are my travel beauty essentials.
1. All Natural Sunscreen by Sunclear with RoseHip Oil. 2. Travel Bottle of Organic Olive oil which I use religiously as a night cream and make up remover. It is also great to apply on your skin during long flights to keep it hydrated! 3. Kora Organic Facial Mist 4. Dr Hauschka Organic Firming Mask 5. Dr Hauschka Organic Cleansing Cream 6. Venus Snap Travel Razor 7. Sonic USB Travel Electric Toothbrush, this is amazing to keep in your handbag or travel luggage 8. Neals Yard Organic Facial Wipes, great for removing make up on the plane 9. Face Cloth 10. Batiste Dry Shampoo & Bio Oil to prevent stretch marks on my growing bump.
To start the trip off to a good start, we got upgraded to Business Class! YAY Thanks British Airways!
Dubai here we come!!
