Travel whilst pregnantย 

Being 22 weekend pregnant my husband and I decided we would take the opportunity to go on a baby-moon which is essentially a holiday whilst pregnant to just be a happy couple and have a bit of us time.

When me and Andrew first got together we went to Venice for our first holiday and it was great although we stayed in a hostel so wasn’t as romantic as it could have been so we decided to go again but this time stay in a hotel. It was much better. We stayed for 4 days 3 nights and really enjoyed it

Before we set off I made sure the travel insurance we purchased covered us should something happen involving my pregnancy and photocopied my pregnancy notes. I even bought flight socks which as I’ve never used any before I can say they are actually surprisingly comfy and my legs didn’t feel quite as “heavy”.

Whilst away I had growing pains once a day for about half an hour and Henry had a growth spurt or more accurately I did. I woke up the day after getting there and my stomach seemed to have sprung out of nowhere but apparently that’s a thing that happens…. Something else which provided entertainment is it was whilst away on this romantic getaway my breasts decided to start leaking clear fluid… Why is pregnancy so God damn sexy!

Packing was a bit hit and miss I wish I had brought lip balm and a different moisturiser for my stomach. It was that cold being January and all, I didn’t wear any of the nice clothes I packed and ended up wearing as many layers as possible and my coat the entire time!

Andrew was really patient with me which was amazing he didn’t rush me and constantly reminded me to go and pee before we left anywhere. Was always there to rub my back when Henry decided to push or pull or whatever it is he has been doing on the inside. So all in all it has been an amazing and very enjoyable trip. I just need a holiday now to recover from this holiday ha ha ๐Ÿ˜‚

My beauty buys!!

L’oreal The minerals true match

I have combination skin and i find it really difficult sometimes finding a product that sits well on parts of my face that are dry particularly my forehead and around my nose. If i use foundation it can dry it out further and powder seems to highlight it also, this product in shade Ivory sits on my skin really well actually. It gives me even coverage, you can apply it and still have a light whilst it is still build-able. My only criticism is that it can be a little messy, the first time i used it i got it all over my self.

L’oreal Volume Million Lashes in Extra black

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I have used it before and i still love it. The applicator is plastic and i know a lot of people don’t like them but i much prefer them, i can get right to the base of my lashes and it gives them a much fuller look. It doesn’t clump my lashes together.

L’oreal brow artist shaper

I am not a fan. Its nothing to do with the product really, it does everything it is supposed to but i prefer powder, i find that it makes everything look much more natural.

Barry M Genie

This is amazing. So i’m not really experimental with green shades of lipsticks, when it goes on it’s clear and then it starts reacting with the alkaline on your skin and gives each person that wears it their own personal shade of pink.

Barry M Nail varnish

Barry M Nail varnishes are always really good quality. I have had it on for over a week now and it only just needs to be redone which for me is pretty amazing i give my nail varnishes a really hard time!

MUA Matte

This was ยฃ1… Its beautiful…. its ยฃ1…enough said really!
