30 Weeks! 10 to go...

30 Weeks Pregnant, 10 to go...

This Monday I hit the 30 week mark in my pregnancy! I've also hit my 7th month and the third trimester. I have 10 weeks left until I hit the full term 40 week mark.

Baby and I are both growing bigger, I gained a bit more then my doc wanted me to, but that was due to quiting my job and being stressed. I also haven't had a whole lot of money to buy a shit ton of veggies, fruit, salad, ect. 
Baby is kicking me harder and being crazy active now!  baby is losing their lanugo hairs and brain is developing more. They can also open their eyes in the womb now. Baby also will be moving into the head down position soon(Hopefully). 

I have been planning a baby shower for the 25th of August, I will be 33 weeks during that time. 
I feel as if I don't have time to get all the things done I want to. Also being this pregnant it's hard to move things and just do things in general, but I still try. 

I plan on trying to work up until I deliver,  although I'm working very part time now, because working 40+ hours with extreme stress was killing me. I switched jobs. We will see what happens I guess. Kinda nervous of going into labor at work! You never know what will happen. 

I will probably post more now that I'm not super busy all the time. Stay tuned for more pregnancy and baby updates soon.

Pregnancy Blog 

I'm now into my sixth month of pregnancy and nearing my third trimester. I'm 26 weeks and 4 days as of today! 

I found out the sex of the baby! It's a girl! 

20 weeks

22 weeks

I'm due in october 2017, so we'll see how that goes. Hopefully she doesn't come early. I want her to cook as long as she can! 

we're also getting together the nursery and painting and stuff, which I'll probably post once it's not under construction. 

at 28 weeks(July 20th) I have my gluclose screening again, and my 28-week OB appt. Hopefully, I pass that again too! that would suck at this point as I love french toast right now. 

stay tuned for more baby updates soon!!

Lush's Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb(Lush Christmas 2016)

Lush's Shoot for The Stars Bath Bomb (Lush Christmas 2016)

Paint the night sky
Launch this one in the water and watch it shoot and spin. Stay very still to see the swirling colors of the night sky dazzle in your bathtub. As the calming blanket of shimmering midnight blue unfolds, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils take your skin to heaven as your mood rockets straight up to the stars. 
This bath bomb is 7.0 oz and sells for $6.95. It was a limited edition item only made for the Christmas season.  To me, it had the scent of the Honey, I washed The Kids Scent, a toffee, sugary scent. 

This bath bomb contains cocoa butter, Brazilian orange oil, bergamot oil, gardenia extract, coconut cream, and almond oil for a moisturizing and uplifting bath. 

I loved the smell and moisturization of this bath bomb. perfect for winter skin that is dry from the cold and blasting artificial heat.  I loved the deep blue color of the bath and the glitter in the water was soo mesmerizing. I love it and would re-purchase if it wasn't a seasonal item. :( boo! 
Come Back Soon for some more Lush goodies (Demo,Reviews,Ect.)

Birchbox October 2016

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask

Marcelle Curling and Lengthening Mascara

PBJ Smoothie Stick (Gift with re-sub.)

Embrylisse Lait-Creme Concentrate( Moisturizer)

Make Lipstick in Taffy
R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo

I got all these items in my October 2016 Birchbox. 

A little bit of everything in this months box. I live on dry shampoo and face masks, I will use the moisturizer, and as for the lipstick I won't use it. I got a gift for re-subscribing to birchbox after a few years hiatus from it. That gift was the PBJ Smoothie Stick. I might use this on a special occasion, it is a nude redish/pink color almost the same as the make lipstick in this box. 

I personally can't wait to try the face mask. I have tried the dry shampoo, and I like it. I'm waiting to try the mascara, and moisturizer. 

This box gets a 3/5 for me, for having some stuff I won't use at all. 
I hope next months is better, we'll see. 

What's new since last time I subbed, is that you get to choose one sample size product a month, or you can choose the surprise box for the month. I'm not sure what I will choose, but I'll see what I like for November. 

Stay tuned for more beauty and birchbox goodness soon,
