Wellness: Healthy eating in Pregnancy

Like most pregnant women I suffered from morning sickness in early pregnancy, making it hard to eat a healthy balanced diet. I supplemented with a multi-vitamin and tried to stay hydrated, but in early pregnancy I did loose weight, which isn't uncommon. Now that I am over twenty weeks, the sickness has faded and trying to eat healthily has a whole new set of challenges, with cravings and feeling extra hungry making it easy to overindulge in things my baby and my body simply don't need.

Budget beauty: Some best buys under £10

Everyone loves a bargain, especially when that bargain doesn't compromise on performance. Today I thought I would show you a round up of some the best products under £10 I have been testing. I like to mix and match price points depending on my needs but I feel that recently the quality of the budget products I have tested has been really high and some of these brands deserve to be talked about more than they are.

Behind the brand: FOM London skincare

One of the things I most enjoy about blogging is getting to chat to brands and to explore what they have to offer. I have recently had the pleasure to chat to Zaga, the founder of FOM London. FOM London was a brand created with the balance between science and nature in mind.

Pregnancy update: 22 Weeks

Well this pregnancy is flying, so many people I have spoken to have said that your second pregnancy goes by much quicker than the first and that is so so true! Apparently baby is now fully formed and just needs to grow which is pretty amazing. We had our twenty week scan a few weeks ago and everything is looking good so far, we took our seven year old and he was fascinated by the whole process!
