BERRY VLOG - Pregnancy Reveal

When I found out I was pregnant, the very first person I told was Cakes. Then we proceeded to tell our mothers, who were both understandably excited. I considered telling my immediate younger sister, but came up with a plan to reveal all as a Christmas present! I wasn't sure if I could really hide my pregnancy and keep it a secret for basically a whole month, but I did and the pregnancy reveal video has been making waves and causing tears all over. If you haven't seen it, make sure to grab a tissue :D

Berry Lovely Links


You guys were right! I really felt like I could easily get back on the blogging train and keep up with posting, but mehn! I am exhausted more than half the time. Baby Cocoa, my honey babyest boo, has not only turned me into a cow and lollipop, but she's sucking my energy too!!! I literally didn't even touch my laptop for how many days. But blogging and you guys have been on my mind. I feel kinda bad, like I'm neglecting this space, but I thank you for letting me have time with my munchkin. Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat - @BerryDakara - cos I usually post photos and short videos with her.

Anyways, enjoy the links!

BERRY VLOG: Pregnancy Tag

WELCOME TO JULY!!!!! Hehe, my estimated date of delivery of Baby Cocoa was supposed to be the 23rd of this month.

Around halfway through my pregnancy, I saw a Pregnancy Tag post online and thought it would be fun to answer some of the questions on my Youtube channel (Have you subscribed yet?). Check out my answers to some of the questions like how I found out we were pregnant, what my cravings were and more!

Please don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel, and like my videos!

Hey Cocoa!

Hey everyone!

I'm sorry I've been so silent on the blog in the past couple of weeks. June was a really tough month for me - I was quite stressed out emotionally and mentally. I also started the month with a tooth infection, which apparently can be common in pregnancy. I had to plan and prepare for my maternity photo shoot with my brother's media company, Primavera Pictures (@primapics on Instagram). I was still on doctor-ordered bed rest, waiting for Cakes and my mum to get back to Atlanta from Nigeria just in time for my baby shower. The plan was to start getting the nursery ready the week after my baby shower... BUT God had other plans! I started having contractions a few hours after getting home from the baby shower, and last week Monday, Baby Cocoa arrived!

Thanks to everyone who already congratulated us on social media! God is too much!!! Y'all praise Him for answered prayers and testimonies!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll share my maternity shoot photos soon, as well as my labor and delivery story. Would you prefer it in written or video format? Let me know!

I'm trying to figure out a schedule that works for me, so that I can get back to blogging properly. I love all of you for sticking by me :) God bless!

Maternity Style - Ankara Off-Shoulder Dress

Yay, I have more Yummy Mummy photos today! Actually, does the yummy mummy tag apply to me since I haven't actually given birth yet? Anyways, I'm quite excited to share these photos for a couple of reasons. First of all, Cakes has been away in Nigeria for a few months - which meant that I had nobody to take my photos for me. So these photos were taken by MYSELF! I don't know how people like Sarah Audu do it! But I think I got some decent shots - what do you think?
