Gestational Diabetes & Pregnancy Update


Apologies for todays post going up a bit late, I'm sure you'll all understand though. This post was just meant to be a gestational diabetes update after my last round of appointments on Wednesday, but a lot has happened in terms of the pregnancy in general since then too, so I thought it best to fill you in on everything.

My Favourite Drugstore Face Masks


Whilst I do like to splash out on the odd skincare item now & again. it's always great when you can find something from the drugstore that works well for you too, and means you can save those spare pounds for other things. I've tried quite a few different face masks from the drugstore in recent years, with varying results, but here are three I would most definitely recommend buying, all of which are £10 or less.

My Baby Shower


If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen already that 12th February was my baby shower. I had a really lovely afternoon with a relatively small group of my closest friends & family at home, and I think my mum & sister did a brilliant job of organising the day. I thought I'd share with you the highlights in pictures.

Winter Weekend Pamper


Whilst we've had a couple of sunny(ish) days recently, it's still been pretty damn chilly outside, reminding me we are still very much in the middle of winter. To make me feel much warmer and snuggly after a long day sat in the cold yesterday, I decided to treat myself to a little bit of a wintery pamper session, and here's what I decided to use.

My Maternity Leave To Do List


So today is my last day at work before I head off on maternity leave, and I cannot wait! I'm so looking forward to having the option as to whether I get up and go out somewhere, and being able to stay in bed if I'm having a pants day, as I'm starting to get really uncomfortable and could do with some rest - I can now see why my sister chose to start her maternity leave much earlier than I am! As well as some much needed rest though, I've still got a few jobs that still need doing before little one arrives, and I thought that as today marks the start of my leave I'd share them with you.
