Product Rave

My beauty regime has been transformed by this stuff:


I was sceptical because any Veet-type product I've ever tried in the past has been awful. But it's not the easiest thing to bend & shave your legs in the shower with a 28lb watermelon in front. So, I gave it a shot. SOLD! And while I am definitely nervous of whatever chemical they use here to literally kill your leg hair right before your eyes, it is so worth it! Spray it on, wait five minutes and shower it off. DONE. I am converted for life. I'll just try not to ever breathe it in, ha ha.

Motherhood

I spent the morning today doing a three-hour test for gestational diabetes after I failed the one-hour test last week. Honestly, it was nothing more than a chance to read my book in peace for three hours, only interrupted by an hourly blood draw. Quite relaxing apart from not being able to eat or drink anything all morning. 

I wanted to post some pretty pictures & fun things concerning 'Motherhood'. I love to look at fun things to buy for babies, new things they come out with for babies, pretty pictures of babies. I can chat about sippy cups & naptimes for hours (what happened to me?!!?) I love this stuff so I wanted to share some recent finds:

Firstly, here are pictures of Mini-Madonna #2's new nursery:
