Now I’m on maternity leave; albeit with a newborn baby now, I’m taking the opportunity to blog more and watch TV box sets and movies whenever possible.
We love watching movies in our house but admittedly now there is a newborn in the house, the opportunity to watch them as frequently as we used to has seriously declined.
Cinema Paradiso is a DVD rental service that allows you the chance to create a list of movies/tv shows you would like to watch and when the DVD becomes available, they will send them out first class in the post to your door. There are over 90’000 titles to choose from so it can take a while to curate your perfect list. The best thing about the service is that you can keep the DVD’s as long as you would like and upon return, a new title will be sent out to you.
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.
