Good morning weekend!

I just woke up and am now having breakfast infront of the teve. I had the best start of my weekend yesterday. First I had lunch with Linda at Sushi Yama and then in the evening I went to Stockholm to celebrate Nicole’s birthday. We went to a restaurant called Pappa Ray Ray, Morfar Ginko. The food was delicious! Sadly I forgot to charge my mobile, so I only had time to take a photo of the menu before it died.

Time flies

I’m so sorry I’ve been M.I.A. from the blog for a while now. I just can’t seem to keep all the things in my life running at the same time. Makes me a bit nervous when I’m thinking about that I’m going to be a parent in about three months. How does everybody have the energy for everything they do? I’m hoping for some kind of boost of energy to come along with parenthood. Fingers crossed!

I promise to better myself when it comes to the blog. In the meanwhile I’m posting some photos from this past weekend. Modou and I took a trip to a nearby town and had a nice dinner and a walk by the sea. Then we went to watch some soccer.

You can follow me on Instagram also (@martinamanneh). I’m usually better at updating my instagram than my blog.

Skull bracelet from Klinton Collection

Look at this supercool skull bracelet I got from Klinton Collection! Isn’t it a beauty? This has been one of my most used accessories this month. It just seems to go with everything In my closet. I asked Linda from Klinton Collection if she might be willing to give my readers a discount and she was thrilled to. So when you order from the store, just add the code Manneh and she will give you a 20% discount. How great is that? The code is valid from now on and all of September.

23 weeks pregnant

This little baby is growing so fast! The kicking is getting so strong, even Modou have been lucky too feel them a couple of times now. And I can tell that he or she is responding to sound now. So I’m thinking this is the time to introduce good music in our baby’s life. And dancing! Been searching for a good dance program for pregnant women on YouTube, so I think that is going to be my workout from now on.

I had an appointment at the midwife today. All was good! Baby bump is growing as it should and the baby’s heartbeat is healthy and strong.

To YouTube or not to YouTube

So I am having an extremely lazy day today. So far, I’m still in my night gown, drinking tea and watching YouTube videos. For the last couple of months I’ve been obsessed with YouTube. I just love watching all these beauty/fashion/lifestyle channels! Perhaps I’ll make a list of my favorite ones some day. Do you have any favorite channels?
All of this watching makes me want to have a channel of my own. Not sure I can overcome my shyness of a video camera, but I find it really tempting. We’ll see… I might try something this week. What do you think?

Thank you, Annika for giving me these Cadbury Flakes! I really missed them. Makes a pregnant tummy happy! :)

21 weeks pregnant

Today’s been sort of a lazy day in Gothenburg. We went to bed late last night and woke up late today, so we just did a bit of shopping. I bought some tops that will fit my fast growing belly. As from yesterday I’m 21 weeks pregnant. It feels sort of surreal, even though I can feel the baby kicking every day. And it finally feels like actual kicks. I’ve been feeling the baby since I was 16 weeks pregnant, but then it was like someone was tickling the inside of my stomache. Now I have even felt the kicks on the outside two times. Feels great that I know that the baby is well and alive in there. Modou took some photos of the baby bump today. So here you go. Pregnant Martina and apparently a pregnant Modou.
