When pregnant, your body is doing incredible things however the strain this sometimes puts on you can be more than you realise. Before getting pregnant, I absolutely loved using essential oils in my baths to help me relax and there was nothing more I wanted some days after a hard day at work, than to run a nice hot bath with lavender or tea tree oils in there.
Computer says NO!
When pregnant you also google the crap out of everything and using essential oils became one of those searched for in my internet history. I read so much conflicting advice about whether oils were safe to use and if so which ones were. I was so confused by what I was reading I decided it was far safer to avoid said oils and wait to enjoy them after baby was born.
The lovely people at Sacred Soul got in touch during pregnancy and offered me a set of their wonderful oils to put to the test myself and as soon as Freya arrived into the world, I did not hesitate in running a nice hot bath and dropping lots of oils in there.
Less than 2 weeks ago, I had a baby!
The following few days after this momentous event went by in a haze but once things had settled down again, it was time to catch up on my blog emails.
One email in my inbox included the opportunity to review a fresh flower delivery service to your door. I adore fresh flowers and was inundated with them after Freya was born but I did not want to turn down the chance to fill my home with even more beautiful flowers that week.
Freddie’s Flowers offer regular deliveries of fresh flowers to your door for £22. They choose your flowers, deliver them to you weekly and even include arrangement tips.
My birthday is around 3 weeks away and I thought it high time I create a birthday wish list that family reading my blog (I know who you are!) can use to get some ideas.
With everything being wedding and then baby related this year, I almost forgot it was getting nearer to my birthday when I turn 27 and the reality of becoming a mother 4 weeks later sets in!!
Here are some of the things on the top of my wish list this year to help those of you buying me gifts (haha).
The Sims 4 // Dermalogica Clear Start Kit // Yorkshire Soap Company Bath Bombs
UGG Slippers (size 5)
Ban.do Diary // Joules Waterproof Jacket // Warehouse Leather Jacket
