A Chocolate Dress = Contented Me

Recently, my lovely friend, the writer and blogger of The Contented? Maybe came to stay*. I have been glued to Amy's blog for the past months, as she has documented her pregnancy with honesty, warmth, humour, sensitivity and eloquence. For someone who is not pregnant, nor has ever been, I felt that I could strangely relate to the ups and downs of her nine-month journey. This is credit to her skilful writing and voice that is both personal but welcoming for her readers. Whether posts are written for her baby, for others or for herself, each forms part of a beautiful and captivating story and even if, like me, you have no personal experience of the subject, you could rewind to the beginning now and enjoy playing catch-up. There are some stunning illustrations throughout (see top image) and a wonderful 'About Me' section which make her blog even more appealing. And, when you have checked it out, you can join me in my excitement as Amy now awaits the birth of her baby.

*Alongside Amy's writing skills, I had to mention her exquisite baking talents (her domestic goddess status will surely make for one very happy child!). With only a few weeks to go at the time of her visit, an incredible amount of effort, thought and culinary artistry had been whisked together to create delectable personalised biscuits for us. Mine, below, was immensely enjoyed (!) but I had to take a picture to share its beauty and professional presentation with you! The perfect present for a fashion-loving, chocolate-eating city girl.
