It has been quite sometime since my first pregnancy update and now that i have finished the second trimester i thought i would fill you guys in on the last eight weeks of my pregnancy. It seems completely crazy that i am now in the third and last trimester of my pregnancy and i think from this point i will do my updates more regularly as more will be going on etc. If you haven't already read my first baby update than you might like to as that will take you up to me being 20 weeks.
Second trimester - weeks 20 - 28
In my last update i had mentioned about having quite intense dreams, well after having them for a little while they have finally died off, i think it was down to hormones and having quite a bit going on at that time but they didn't get too serious. I have also introduced a better sleep routine and believe this has helped relax me so unlike my first pregnancy I'm not finding sleep an issue and hopefully it will stay that way. If you'd like to know some of the products I've been using you can read about them here, and are great whether your pregnant or not. I am also extremely lucky and grateful that I'm still not having to get up through the night to go for a wee, hooray!
On Monday i was very lucky to be invited to my local Lush's spring tea blogger event, where they showed off this years mother's day & Easter collections. As always they pulled out all the stops and the shop looked incredible, we was greeted with adorable mini treats to nibble on and drinks on ice. Tea party themes are always one of my favourite and an Alice in wonderland spin on it certainly made it beautiful. Without further a do lets jump into this years products at there are many to go through.
Rose bombshell - bath bomb £3.95
As the name of it suggests this bomb is filled with rose including yellow rose petals in the middle so is a real treat. Unlike the rose jam scent i would say this has a more traditional rose smell so if your not a fan of sweet rose this will certainly be one for you.
Red lips are a big makeup trend and it seems we all like to rock a red lipstick for valentines day so i thought i would share my favourite red lip products, no matter what your budget is these will get your red lip game on point.
Budget - Rimmel Kate Moss shade 111 £5.49
Rimmel lipsticks have to be saluted for their quality and price and are one of my favourite drugstore lipsticks. The lasting power is great, ok so it does wear especially when eating and drinking so touch ups will be needed however that can be expected from a lot of lipsticks. The pigment and velvet matte texture is also brilliant and it glides on so is easy and comfortable to wear.
Deep moisturising and nourishing your skin is an absolute must when pregnant in the battle against stretch marks. I tried a few different creams and oils in my first pregnancy and never come across one that i loved enough to go straight back to so i started hunting around in early pregnancy and came across the brand Mama mio. Although i hadn't tried anything from this brand before i was really interested in the fact they had a special line targeted for pregnant skincare from a facial cleanser, stretch mark prevention and leg gel.
Sleeping is one of the biggest thoughts to most of us, whether it's down to did we get enough, how good it was, feeling tired through out the day etc. Whether your pregnant, male or female sometimes relaxing sleep aids can be very welcome and who doesn't want to drift off easily into a nice deep well rested sleep. For over a year i have reached for certain bath bombs and products to help me unwind and relax for a good night sleep so i thought it would be quite nice to share my little collection from Lush.
