Feed the Skin: Anti-Stretch Mark Oils

  I don’t get a lot of me-time during this second pregnancy. However, if there is one thing that I am really conscious about it’s that I try to take at least 5 minutes in the morning and in the evening to massage my belly. It may be just a short moment but following this…

My First Birth Story

Pregnancy Style: Wrapped Magic

It was one of those bad hair days. I woke up looking like a flattened version of Sideshow Bob and didn’t have enough time to show my curls some love. On those days I just like to wear them up in a bun and tame them with a nice headwrap. As this one features a Vichy print, it attracts…
