I hope your holiday season is full of family, love, food and style :). We are celebrating here in Tokyo for the third year. I can’t believe it has been this long since we moved across the ocean to this island we call home. I am just a little over three weeks away from meeting our precious lil’ mama and am far too pregnant for a 10 hour flight back home. The holidays and baby preparations have been taking up my time, hence the lack of post during my last trimester. The nesting is kicking in and my chic Tokyo apartment is slowing transforming into a baby haven. Strollers, PAC & Plays and bottle warmers consume the space once occupied by stiff chairs with over stuffed pillows, ornate statues and a clutter free entrance by the doorway. However, I am still keeping the place as sophisticated as possible and refraining from going all-out Chucky Cheese playland.
Although my apartment has adjusted to the newest arrival, my wardrobe has yet to evolve to the stereotypical “motherhood” get ups. I have purchased the necessary nursing bras, tanks and forgivable waistband leggings, but still refuse the boxy, unflattering sheets that take over a pregnant belly.
I recently did an interview with Tokyo blogger and mother Kate Neath. Her blog TokyoUrbanBaby.com, has a huge following and gives foreign mothers, like myself, the skinny on where to shop, play, eat and hangout with your baby in Tokyo. Her blog provides a wealth of information and resources for mothers within Tokyo and I praise her for sharing all of the goodies.
Kate and I spent an afternoon talking maternity fashion, where to shop and a few style tips for first time pregnant moms. Please check out the interview and if you have some time take a look around her blog.
