I had in my mind that my Easter would be spent cuddling with my child, watching movies about the risen God with her and my husband and ending my holiday by making cookies after taking Marie to our front yard to hunt for the healthy eggs I would make for her that morning. Unfortunately, the script went a little off of plan and I ended up spending half of my day in the hospital, being monitored and learning the importance of a simple trick; how to count your baby’s movements.
Can you believe how fast is this year going? I feel like it was yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas and now we are basically in the middle of the year. I can’t believe that I am only about two days away from having my baby in my arms. Seriously, I will miss this big belly, despite all the trouble and pain a pregnancy brings to a woman. This is making me really sad as I have no plan to try another baby any time in this life. I can’t prevent from feeling deep sorrow in this regard. Well, here I am wearing a comfortable casual long sleeve dress from ASOS in my last days of pregnancy. It fits so well, for a non maternity dress as it’s made of a lightweight stretch fabric. I love how feminine it is and that it instantly adds elegance to even a pregnant silhouette like mine.
Hi everyone! This weekend I had an amazing time with my friends during my baby shower. It took only three weeks to organize it. At first, I had no inspiration on what to do until I was “rescued” from a complete lack of imagination by my friend that I consider my soulmate when it comes to party and creativity, whom also happens to be a very talented MUA (Makeup Artist)
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 in 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.
