We all know the extreme hormonal changes that expectant women experience and believe or not this plays an important role in their sense of taste and smell. Beside the excuse of “Pregnancy is hard, and you deserve a break!” there are plenty of reasons to not sum up to these temptations and keep yourself on a healthy diet as your baby’s eating habits and future health can be shaped by what you eat now. It’s worth stating the obvious, that junk food can not provide the nutrients necessary for your developing baby and his/her brain, bones, immune systems and organs. Why clean eating while pregnant is important? Well, in this post I will share with you some valid reasons why you should eat healthy during pregnancy based on recent studies. The health of your baby is built since he/she is your womb.
The miracle of life can be quite confusing for new mothers. I am pregnant with my second baby and I have to say this one is nothing like my first pregnancy. Maybe because I don’t have the same complications that I had with my first child or maybe because I have learned more. I feel like I have now all the necessary experience to know how to deal with a baby. I have just one month left until my baby arrives and it’s time to pack our bags. But, what to pack? What is really necessary? These were the main questions I had in my mind with my first baby that I will attempt to answer for you right here, plus you can download and print a cute Hospital Bag Checklist I created specially for you to make your life easier.
When I think of sugar scrub my mind automatically leads me to a brand name or the cheapest ones we can get at any drugstore. But, after reading a blog that I love I learned how beneficial this can be to your skin and decide to give it a try. First thing I like about making my own scrub is that I know what the ingredients are, if they are truly organic, chemical free, etc. The second thing that I adore about DIY Homemade Chocolate Sugar Scrub is how easy they are to make. Seriously, it won’t take more than five minutes of your time to mix up all the ingredients that you love most and done, you have an amazing product that would cost just a fraction of the price in stores.The third thing I like most about it is that It makes a great gift for your family members, friends and neighbors.

We all know that beauty products are not always accessible. The best brand names are too expensive to even think of. But, fortunately there are a bunch of products out there that really work and may give the same expected results, as the ones made by big brands. I listed here five of my favorite inexpensive drugstore beauty products that actually work, which I have tested and I can assure they will surprise you.
Utah has been blessed this year with a very warm winter, has allowed me to pull my spring clothing out early. I love the casual chic style that give us space for creativity, usually without costing too much. Winter has favored my style and I am totally loving these warm temperatures! It’s safe to say that I am more than ready for summer, which somehow always seems to not last very long. You probably can tell my cravings for warmer seasons by seeing my look for today’s post, a non-maternity jumpsuit.

I like to think that I am not a high maintenance girl or at least my husband makes me to believe I am not. I praise myself for not being obsessed with big brand names. To me what it’s really important is to feel comfortable and like what I am wearing, rather than the price. As a mother, I prefer spend money on experiences than in expensive clothing. It may sound hypocrite coming from a girl who owns more than a 100 pairs of shoes. But, the truth is I collected those over the years and always focused on buying them under a restricted rule of taking advantage of promotions as much as possible. Rules such that are not always possible to follow when you’re buying formal dresses for an event.
I am not a big fan of winter, as well of spring as I consider it cold. However, I learned how to appreciate the flowers blooming, bringing some spectacular colors and textures to our sight. Although I can’t complain about winter this year, as Utah has been gifted with warm temperatures and sunny days, I am excited to say officially goodbye to it.To be honest, I don’t trust Utah weather (after living here for 8 years I know that temperatures can change within a matter of hours). As summer is still far away, I don’t have many options other than faking it within my house by filling it with some of the most beautiful artificial flowers we can find at Target.
