September has been a bit of a whirlwind. It, as predicted, has been a little manic at times but also lots of fun including a little trip to Butlins. So, as we enter the last few days, here’s what I have been loving:
I have been reflecting a little on my blog lately and, whilst I love getting emails from people who want me to review their products, I have decided to be a little more selective and only proceed if it really appeals to me. Last week, I received a little email from Mustela about using some of their skin products. I was delighted, as you may know I am pregnant with my third child and feeling rather huge. I was therefore very excited to try out their stretchmarks gel and serum. Whilst so far I have been really lucky to have few stretchmarks from my last two pregnancies, I want to make sure I am taking a little more care of my skin this time around. I have only just started using the products so I will let you know how I get on (they also smell amazing!)
I have also been wearing Benefits Hello Flawless foundation which has been a nice change and is giving me a little more coverage than my usual foundation. My skin is terrible during pregnancies and I need all the help I can get.
I think I have bought more clothing this pregnancy than either of my others which is a little crazy. I have been wearing my H&M skinny maternity jeans religiously and also bought myself a new top from Topshop – it is not a maternity one but quite long and loose and is so comfortable.
Meme has been wearing her uniform!! Harri and Meme both got some new shoes for a new start in preschool and Year one respectively.
Not much to report on this front as we have been spending money on birthdays and holidays!
I did buy a new cup which I am a little in love with. In my 20’s I was a little obsessed with shoes and fashion and now it tends to be cups and pretty things.
This doesn’t really count but we had a little photo shoot with Whispering Willow Photography. I have not yet received the pictures but when I do I think we are going to print some and frame them for our home. I can’t wait to see them.
There has been a lot of consumption of cake this month. We were sent some delicious cupcakes from caketoppers to help celebrate Memeandharri turning one! Of course, we had lots of cake for Meme’s sixth birthday.
So, it has been a lovely month but it has been a bit crazy and, with the start of school, it has been emotional and exhausting trying to get into some kind of routine. I am looking forward to a little bit of a calmer October.
How has September treated you?
