This post is for all of you hard working mamas who lay awake at night with a long to do list running through your head or have to wake up every few hours to feed a hungry baby- I see you!  We all love sleep and yet many of us don’t get enough of it or we get enough but it’s not the high quality sleep we yearn for.  So I’m going to share my top tips not only for getting a better night’s rest but also how to fake it if you didn’t!

After I had my first baby, I did a series of “Body after baby” posts because I felt like post partum bodies weren’t being shown or talked about enough.  I didn’t know what to expect my body to look like (or feel like) post partum because people weren’t openly talking about their experiences!  Part of what I love to use this blog for, is to shed light on topics just like this…

Target A New Day OTK Boots:  Finally, I found some over the knee boots that are vegan-friendly, under $50 and fit!! I’m 5’10 so they hit just above my knees. I find the fit very comfortable and super flattering.  They are currently on sale for just $32!! Although the regular price of $39.99 is pretty amazing still

MyBevi water bottle: I picked this up at Target after the previous water bottle I bought turned out to be a fail.

Fall and Winter are my favourite months to diffuse essential oils! Below I’m sharing some of my favourite blends that you can diffuse and have your home smell like Fall. Great thing about essential oils is not only do you get amazing scents but you also get the health benefits!

  1. High Powered Blender – Personally I have a refurbished Vitamix and I LOVE it! I use it at least once a day. It doesn’t completely replace a food processor but for smoothies it can’t be beat.
  2. Essential Oils – I’ve linked to NYR Organic since I represent them but there are lots of great companies out there. No, there is not ONE company you must buy from or that has the “best essential oils”.

Why go natural & organic during your pregnancy? Here are just some of the benefits…

  • What you put on your body can affect you as well as your unborn baby.  It has been said that women use an average of 12 personal care products a day which means they could be exposed to over one hundred unique chemical ingredients some of which may not be good for their health!
  • Your hormones change when you’re pregnant which effects your skin greatly Switching your skincare to natural and organic products can be much gentler on your sensitive skin.

For Winter, I get ready by buying things like scarves and gloves but Summer? Summer means changing up my beauty routines!  Bring on the sunscreen, bronzer, foot scrubs etc!

Luckily for me, I’ve discovered a lot of wonderful products to help me feel more prepared for Summer!  These products are cruelty free and on the more “natural side” (low rating on ThinkDirty and EWG Skin Deep!)… because last thing I need to do is smear potentially dangerous chemicals all over myself!!
