Lydia Bright's Payday Picks

January always feels like the longest month and everyone seems to be waiting for payday. Well it’s finally arrived – woohoo!

To celebrate I headed to my local Matalan store and shopped until I dropped. I picked up something for me, something for the baby and some bits for my new home. Read on to find out more about my latest haul.

I’m having a massive home renovation to make space for the baby including a first floor extension, loft conversion and not to mention a brand new kitchen. I’m so excited but must admit it has been slightly stressful, especially whilst I have been heavily pregnant. The good news is – the end is near! The real fun starts now with furniture and home accessory shopping.

Being in my last trimester, I want to feel comfy, relaxed and be at home. So, I picked up a couple of loungewear and PJ sets. FYI - these aren’t maternity, I just ordered a size large to accommodate my ever growing bump. I’m a big fan of the ‘love yourself,’ jumper, as sometimes I can be a little hormonal adjusting to my body changes, so messages like this are a little reminder to not be so hard on myself.

I have been obsessed with Mrs Hinch on Instagram since being pregnant, maybe it’s a nesting thing. I love that she uses pretty baskets as storage options so when I saw these in store, I had to get them. I can’t wait to make my house super organised and clutter free.

My baby is due in three weeks, it’s crazy to think that very soon I will be a mummy. I feel like I can’t walk into a shop now without buying my bubba a little something. I know she isn’t going to be using a dinner set any time soon, but I had to pick this up because it reads ‘born in 2020,’ which I think is so cute.

Being pregnant, I obviously can’t indulge in cocktails, so peach Bellini’s are off the menu! However, with this candle I can still enjoy the smell.
