For the month of April Birchbox teamed up with Cath Kidston to celebrate the brands 25th birthday. This collaboration paid off immensely. The design of the box is stunningly decorated with Cath Kidston’s design. Since this is my first ever Birchbox I’m not sure if this is an ongoing thing, but inside smells heavenly. Even my fiancé commented on this when I first opened it.
I’ve been feeling a little defeated this week. Waddling around is taking it out of me. I’ve done something to my foot which makes it painful to use. Morning sickness has me gagging all day and I don’t think I’ve ever been this light headed in all my life. My hands and fingers are even more painful than last week and I just feel like giving in and crying a little. The negatives have definitely stepped up this week, but as always the positives stack up higher. I’ve only got this feeling for 5(ish) more weeks, which means I’m only going to feel her lovely movements for that long too. So whilst I’m getting a little down from feeling rubbish every time I feel her move it kind of makes up for all of that.
Makeup Revolution have always been a favourite of mine. If I’m ever looking for something specific I’ll always check their selection first. They come so high on my personal recommendations list due to their more than affordable price, which doesn’t take away from the very impressive quality of their products.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but they seem to be killing the makeup game right now. I went on a little Superdrug trip last week, thinking it was the safer alternative to online shopping, as I always get more than a little carried away (I spent the same amount I would’ve online). I bought the I Heart Revolution Eggs and since then they’ve become a staple in my daily makeup routine. (I did write a review on those, you can read that here). Since so many of you seemed to enjoy that post I’m sharing a couple of other things I bought.
We’ve only got 6 weeks left!! This week my notes for week 33 were simple:
‘Baby kicking insanely strong. Dragging her feet around stretching out.
Morning sickness is definitely back.
Not weeing as much’
I’m pretty sure I’ve almost completed my transformation into new born baby, that’s what happens when you get pregnant right? More than regular toilet trips, routine meals and naps needed almost every four hours, I rely on someone else to do everything for me and constantly wanting to cry (hello hormones!).
Happy Easter you lovely little chicks. Last month I picked up three of the new I Heart Revolution surprise eggs. Superdrug has a buy two get one free special offer on, so I purchased the Gold, Rose Gold & Dragon versions for only £10! (£5 each if purchased separately) I left out the Mermaid, Unicorn & Angel ones, only because the other three seemed more up my palette alley (that’s a thing right?).
Have you ever slowly swallowed a ball of lava? No? Well neither have I, but I sure feel like I have. Or the baby is some sort of mini torturer and is using her tiny flamethrower on my insides.
Since it’s International Women’s Day and Year Of The Woman I thought it would be appropriate to post this short letter I wrote, dedicated to our little girl while she’s growing in my tummy.
12 WEEKS LEFT! 3 months, and that’s only until her ‘estimated’ due date! I honestly never though I would be a mum and now I’m only 3 months away from a lifetime of holding my daughter. This week hasn’t been a rough one at all, seems as though everything has settled back to normal, pregnancy normal of course. After nipple drama last week I could definitely use a little bit […]
I’ve seriously loved being pregnant, but my word it’s uncomfortable. I was definitely not prepared for the fact I would never feel comfort again. (Dramatic much?) If you are planning on having a baby then please, for the love of your bladder, get yourself a toilet to plumb in your bedroom. Maybe this is such a big issue for me because our toilet is downstairs in the absolute coldest part […]
