MAKING AN AMAZON BABY LIST


An amazon baby list may sound like you are just after people to buy you products for your baby; which you could be, no judge, but personally I am using the amazon baby list to keep all my curated bits and bobs ready for purchasing. Money can be tight when your expecting a little one so keeping an Amazon list is a great way to list all the things you want to purchase so that when you do have the funds your one click away from purchasing them. 

Amazon also have some really good deals available and normally turn out to be the cheapest way of me purchasing an item; also, I have Amazon Prime so next day delivery is bloody great. For example I have been researching the best baby baths and the Angelcare Soft Touch Bath Support kept cropping up so I decided to add it to my Amazon baby list and guess what? It's almost £10 cheaper than anywhere else I have seen it, bargain!! I purchased it in pink as we're having a little girl, heres the link if you wanna take a look Angelcare Soft Touch Bath Support - Aqua.


Making a baby list would also be great for baby showers; people never know what to get so including an Amazon baby list link would make life easier for people to purchase something you actually want. Plus everyone knows how to shop on Amazon, it's quick easy and safe and you can't really go wrong as once someone has purchased something from your list it disappears so it can't be purchased again. Me and my partner, Mike, have family that live away and it makes it so easy for them to be apart of the baby buying too; they simply find something they'd like to purchase for you and it can be delivered right to your door.

I've really enjoyed making my baby list and watching lots of different Newborn Essentials videos to add bits and bobs to my list. I've also added 5 big packs of Waterwipes to the list, such a good price as Water wipes can be really expensive. WaterWipes Baby Wipes Sensitive Skin, 12 packs x 60 wipes (720 wipes)

I'd love to hear what your newborn essentials are and let me know if theres anything I need to add to my list. If you'd like to hear my 10 Honest Pregnancy Truths click here

PRIMARK KPOP BLEMISH BLASTER


After the lovely feedback on my previous Primark face mask post, read more here, I thought I would write a little something about the KPOP Blemish Blaster. Not really a face mask but a skincare product that has me recommending it to everyone and their dog (please don't use these on your dog). I haven't seen anything like the Blemish Blaster before, in the UK that is, and at £1.50 for 20 gel patches you really can't go wrong. Similar products are huge in America and you can't watch a Girly rom-com without at least one character wearing some sort of patch or spot cream to bed. 

I got so excited when I saw these in Primark and they really do not disappoint. Pop them on overnight over a brewing blemish (ewwww!) and it will keep the blemish from that angry red itchy stage and starts reducing the blemish WITHOUT drying out the skin. Currently my skin is dry with hormonal breakouts from pregnancy, meaning that a lot of products aimed at problematic skin make my skin even drier than usual; so the Blemish Blaster is just perfect for me at the moment. The gel patch itself is clear and comes in two different sizes, the bigger patches are perfect for those times when you have two blemishes right next to each other. Although the patch is clear you can see it in certain lights so you wouldn't want to go out with these bad boys on; but, they are meant to be worn overnight. 

I have been really surprised with how incredible these little patches are and at such a good price. I have been wearing these every night over blemishes and I think they have also helped to prevent my skin from scarring; something which happens with every blemish I ever have. Honestly could not fault them.

10 HONEST TRUTHS ABOUT PREGNANCY


I am currently 19 weeks pregnant and wanted to post a little something about the actual truths of pregnancy; this is not meant to scare you, just shed a little truth. If you missed my pregnancy announcement you can find it here. Enjoy ;)

1. Morning sickness is not morning sickness at all. It is ALL DAMN DAY sickness. No kidding! Nausea does not ease after you have been sick either. It's great!

2. You look bloated and round before you even have a bump. Honestly I swear I was bigger at 6 weeks than I am at 19 weeks. So weird. But everyone that has been pregnant has told me about the dreaded bloat.

3. It's exhausting growing a tiny human. Exhausting. Normally I love to sleep anyway but I could honestly sleep all day every day and still be tired at the moment.

4. It's suuuuper hard to get comfortable. Just prepare yourself for 40 weeks of uncomfortableness.

5. It is the best thing EVER to feel your baby move in your belly. And it feels nothing like people say it does. It's a very distinctive, "oh wow, thats baby" feeling. Kinda like when you have a smear test and its a weird feeling up behind your belly? Yeah it's similar. It can also make you feel sick when the baby is moving loads deep inside your belly. I was sick on myself this morning :)

6.Ultrasound scans can HURT. Yup, never knew this until it happened to me. Baby girl is a wriggler and they have to jab her to get her to move into the correct position for measurement. Also, they have to press hard sometimes and it really really hurts. 

7. It's like being budda. People want to touch your belly and smooth you for good luck. It's so weird the first couple of times but you do get used to it haha. 

8. You get emotional. Very emotional. Like I can cry at anything. Everything pisses me off. The littlest thing can make me super angry. I get hangry, alot. It's kinda like being on your period but continuous. 

9. The floor is very, VERY far away. You drop something whilst pregnant? Its gone.

10. Get used to not seeing your vajayjay! Honestly. It's gone. Disappeared. Vamoosh. I did have a nicely kept vaj up until my bump blocked my way and now god knows what it looks like down there. Am I embarrassed? Nope. Am I scared to see what it looks like in another 4 months? Very! 

Hope you enjoyed this little taste of pregnancy realness. In all honestly it is hard. Some people have harder times than others and some enjoy every single part of it; but pregnancy is such a beautiful thing to experience, the good and the bad. Your growing a tiny human!! Huge pat on the back for you, and a back rub while I'm there ;) god knows you need it.
