The Pregnancy Pillow

Hey there,

This is just a quick rundown on The pregnancy pillow!

Is it worth it? Does it actually help? In my opinion, kind of….

So my thoughts are they are great to an extent, I have tried an actual pregnancy pillow and just a body pillow. I personally had a good sleep in the day time with my pregnancy pillow but at night it was just too much to have in the bed, I feel like I either needed to choose my pillow or brad (my partner). Obviously I chose brad mainly because I really enjoy cuddling and I’m a touchy feely person, so having cuddles whilst pregnant was something I really enjoyed, I found my body pillow in between my legs and under my belly more than enough.

On the other hand if you like your personal space, especially in your sleep, than I would definitely recommend a pregnancy pillow. They really are super comfy during pregnancy, just be warned they are huge.

2019 The Year of Health Happiness and Self Love

So this year is the year I get back to being healthy! Okay, I was never overly healthy, I never ate amazingly but I was fit-ish!

It’s hard for me to write but in the last 3 years I’ve put on 35 kilos.

It wasn’t that bad to write, I actually feel some relief.

I’m not going to make excuses or tell you why I think it’s happened, instead I’m going to take the blame and tell you why it happened.

I stopped exercising all together, I lived on an island where you walked everywhere, no cars, I went from walking everywhere to nothing, I did the whole, go the gym for a few months get really into it then gave up. Now I left Hamilton island in February 2015 by the end of that year had put on about 10 kilos, then 2016 November I had put on another 10.

But the most amazing thing happened , I was pregnant with my first baby (poppy). Now after I gave birth I weighed less than when I got pregnant (I attribute this to horrendous morning sickness).

Then this is where it went down hill, because of a heart issue that came about during pregnancy, I was told I wasnt allowed to exercise until my heart resolved, which it didn’t, still hasn’t.

Now I was finally told I could exercise, but after a few months my motivation went out the window, I’m bad like that, I’m one of those people who needs to be pulled out of bed and yelled at to exercise.

I HATE EXERCISE.

I love the idea of it, I love the idea of being fit, but I need someone to go to the gym with me, and that’s no going to happen.

Now come 2017 I found out I was pregnant with bubs number 2, 2 under 2 your thinking I got pregnant by accident, nope we are crazy people and we planned it all. Realistically I was so unhealthy coming into my pregnancy that it was obvious i was going to be unhealthy by the end of it, which is were we are right now.

6 weeks postpartum and I’m ready to take responsibility and get fit and healthy. I hate my body at the moment and really desperately want to love it, so this is the beginning of that.

Let me tell you some things before I let you in on my goals. I don’t care about being a size 6, I just want to feel good, I don’t care about what the scales read once I’m in my healthy bmi range. Lastly I don’t eant this to take over my life.

  • By March I will of lost at least 7 kilos
  • I will hopefully feel better and not so tired.
  • I will not drink soft drink (except mineral water)
  • I will be exercising daily
  • I will drink at least 3 liters of water a day
  • I will love my body, stretch marks, saggy boobs and all

Easy Skincare Routine.

Just before I got pregnant I was really struggling with acne. This was not super bad but it was worse than it had been. So I went and changed my whole routine and it was definitely worth it.

Firstly I wet my face I usually do this in the shower after I’ve washed my hair because I like to take my skin care right down onto my chest and I find it super hard to do over a basin.

Second I use REN evercalm cleansing gel. Now this stuff smells amazing and is super gentle on the skin I have had my bottle for so long now as a little goes a long way. I use half a pump to 1 pump on my hands rub it together until it foams and then gently massage it into my face neck and chest. I try to do this for a minute then I wash it off.

Remember to pat your face dry don’t rub it as this can cause wrinkles.

Then I use skyn iceland exfoliating pads all you have to do is wipe them over your face and then throw them out. Just avoid the eyes but how easy is that!

Then I finish it off with REN evercalm moisturiser and drunk elephant luxe oil. Always make sure if your using an oil to put it on after moisturiser as oil can penetrate moisturiser can’t penetrate oil.

Since doing this my skin has been amazing. Please comment below what you want me to write next and we will see you next time.

A Warm Welcome From Bed…

Hey there.

As I lay in bed with my baby hanging off my boob I thought why not use this time to write a blog so here it goes.

Whether your a Lazy mum like myself, a working mum, a new parent, a dad or a mum just struggling to find time then this will be the place for you.

I thought that my first post I should probably introduce myself and explain what I’m planning on doing on here so here it goes.

First off I’m a Lazy Mum, especially at the moment, I’m currently pregnant with baby number 2 and it has not been going well but that’s a story for another time. I have a beautiful 1 year old which means come December I will have two little cherubs under 2.

I love hacks. You know those things people come up with to make your life that much easier, well I love trying those out and love it even more when they work, so I will defintly be doing some posts about hacks for us lazy or time poor parents.

My experience being a mum has been amazing all the ups and downs and everything that goes along with parenthood. I will be sharing some of my experiences good and bad so you know your not alone.

Lastly I hope that everyone can take something away from this blog and that it isn’t a boring read. Please leave a comment and let me know what you want me to write about. I will talk to you guys shortly.
