I didn’t go crazy. I really just got what I needed and maybe splurged on the palettes. But I actually feel set till next year! Maybe you just want to watch what people buy (like me! lol) or I hope this will give you idea’s on products you want to try next! I’m thinking those palettes would be great for holiday gifts.
Let me know if you want an review for the products I bought!
Time is flying by so fast! I cannot believe that I am already at 34 weeks and prepping for the baby to come. I have a list of things to do, but one of them is making the Raspberry Leaf Tea and prepping my uterus!!
Here is the simple recipe that I have been enjoying:
Fresh ginger (to help with digestion)
2 tablespoons mint leaf (also beneficial for digestion, not to mention delicious!)
2 tablespoons chamomile (to soothe frazzled nerves and encourage restful sleep)
For a single cup:
Allow to infuse for at least 10 minutes. Remove tea leaves and sweeten with honey, maple syrup, etc. if desired
If you don’t have a tea ball, simply add the tea leaves to boiling water and then strain with a mesh strainer .
To make a large batch, boil 8 cups of water and add 1/2 cup tea leaves. Steep for at least 10 minutes to overnight, then strain and place in the fridge to sip on over the next few days.
A lot of my friends did give it a go but I didn’t get to try this look during the summer. So I thought, why not try it for fall.
I have made the colors are little more deeper fit for the fall weather, and as you know feel free to change lip , cheek, eye base color. Every beauty/fashion video should be an inspiration and you take it to make it your own! Hope you give it a try and let me know if you liked it or not in the comments below! eeek!
Finally got to meet our little boy! Since my pregnancy has been smooth and I decided to have him at home, I didn’t have an ultrasound until later in my pregnancy. 20 weeks! It did feel like forever ( I saw some other friends go in right away and did feel a bit jelly at times) BUT it was worth the wait!
Wanna keep reading and see more photos….(this way)
Finally the day came when we found out the gender of our baby! We did a simple blood test with MaterniT21 (for detecting fetal chromosomal abnormalities along with the gender between 11-14 weeks) We chose to go with this because it was just a blood test and not having to go in the amniotic sac to get a check up is what I would rather prefer. Seems to be a new’ish test. Only a few years out and thought, why not!
Seems like the moment the sperm touches the egg the sex of the baby is already decided/chosen (how ever you like to say it) This was news to me! For some reason I thought it would gradually develop?! Pretty amazing that you can 99.9% tell the sex of the baby at such an early stage.
We asked our midwife to send us an envelope with the “top secret info” and I took it to the nearest bakery. It was so last minute too since we were so eager to know and it was the weekend. But it all worked out!
Instead of having a large gathering we just had family around and that was also perfect. My husband was a bit iffy on doing a “gender reveal” anything (he wanted to just open the envelope) but at the end he and I really enjoyed the whole experience.
Don’t want to give it away if you haven’t seen the video yet….BUT
We are so thrilled to have what we are having!
