...please, please suggest one thing I can do/buy to make myself feel a bit more alluring! I seem to have lost my spark and need to get it back. Ideally something I can do at home or buy in a department store - I'm a bit short of time so ideally not a professional blow-dry/salon beauty treatment etc.
What about a few nice, brightly patterned scarves? You can throw them over your maternity outfits to give them a new lease of life. I also find scarves pretty forgiving, they are good for covering up a bit and also snuggly and warm as the weather turns cold.
