Babymoon OOTD | Makeup I Packed

What's a Babymoon? A vacation you take before the baby comes. It's supposed to be like a Honeymoon. Most people head abroad, but we stayed in the city, because I can't handle long journeys - even when I wasn't pregnant. I need to take a tablet to prevent air/motion sickness every time I travel far.
We went to stay in Delhi at Svelte Personal Suites Hotel. The one on top of Select City Walk Mall. Just for 3 days. 3 days of only eating & shopping! It was fun to be a tourist (well, sort of) in your own city. We discovered good shops & restaurants that we probably wouldn't have otherwise. This was what I wore on the last day. It's my favorite dress.....
The hotel has a terrace pool. As you can see, it was very windy. Control the flying dress or flying hair?

Dress: Primark Open Back Dress ~ Worn backwards & I tied it up. |  Sunglasses: Mango | Lipstick: L'Oreal Moist Matte Lincoln Rose

I will post more pictures of the hotel etc on my second blog ~

I can't believe there's only 2 months left! Due Date is 8th-13th October. A week ago, it hit me. People told us we had to start buying some basic things, so we went to Mothercare in Shopper's Stop immediately since their Sale was getting over the next day, or a couple of days. I got super confused in the store. Mr.CZ actually knew more than me - he showed me the sketch of the bodysuits and onesies on top of the packets.

I think talking to people makes me feel more jittery about the whole thing. 

You'll need this. 
You'll have to buy that.
Machine to sterilize bottles.
You'll need many milk bottles.
You have to buy a thermometer. The one you insert in the baby's ear.
The baby has to wear layers, so you'll also need those...those.... (I forgot)
What about soft cloth diapers? Regular diapers would be too hard for the baby's skin.
You have to scrub your ni**les properly. Like, really properly. So there's no blockage later.


Okay, let's all calm down.

Talk again soon.


  1. Loved your dress! and your expression of jittery baby CZ moments are the cutest !!

  2. You are looking really beautiful CZ in the red dress.Pregnancy has really given you such a glowing skin. Baby CZ is really lucky to have a such a pretty mum.City holidays are really common nowdays as many people check in during weekends for relaxation and many hotels have great discounts.

    1. That's true Piu. Thanks for the generous compliment :)


  3. Great pics CZ. Waiting to see yr haul..

  4. tooooooooooooooooooo gud, very pretty in red dress
    loved dat pic near terrace pool.

  5. Awww CZ... you'd be such an adorable momma. It does sound so overwhelming. ... huggs

  6. Cynthia, some people treat their pregnancy as a disease.they undergo a period of self imposed bed rest and inactivity. They are overly cautious " sab kuch theek thaak ho jae bas!" You are full of life and shopping :p if ever , I am blessed with motherhood I would like to be active and enthusiastic like you (sans the transformation series :p :p ) I enjoyed your idea of staying at svelte hotel saket and shopping to the hilt !!! Looking forward to your haul post of your newly bought stuff ... love always.♡♥

    1. Haha....I laughed so hard at what you said Sonia :D :D It's true actually, I have seen some women act so weak and helpless! I feel guilty even taking a short nap & I could shop all day hehe :D Although my doc has advised more rest time.

      Wish you the same when your time comes :) Thanks <33


  7. You are looking very beautiful Cynthia, Love your outfit. I'm very Happy for you and your husband. Enjoying your pregnancy posts a lot :D Take care.

  8. I was thinking the same thing as Sonia. Lots of love and virtual hugs to you CZ :*

  9. pretty you! what an amazing way to celebrate. All the best !

  10. How pretty you look!!

    CZ, I remember once u subtly mentioned your trials while growing up. Considering that, the way you found the love of your life, being part of a large family & now all set to bring up your own little one is a big huge achievement, believe me if someone else had been in your place it might have been impossible.
    You are one tough cookie my lady, Baby CZ has a lioness mum to look up to for all the goodness in life.
    Love the way you have smoothly sailed thru the pregnancy with style :) May your happy family always be blessed with the good things ♥

    1. Thank you Medha! Very sweet of you to say, I feel blessed :)


  11. You're so gorgeous. Being pregnant really makes you shine as ever :) I'm almost sure that you'll get a lil boy !
    Awww and I wanted to ask you if you know how to remove suntan on arms please :/
    God bless you and your family <3

    1. Boy, really?! Let's see :) Thanks Sonam.
      Sun tan will only go with time. use a scrub & a whitening body lotion. Also, sunblock everyday. Will do a post on it sometime. Rubbing lemon also helps lighten tan.



I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
