Life | My Month [June]

Hello sunshines!

I can't believe its July already!! For me, June flew by!! 
I started my maternity leave early, and am so glad I did. My mental wellbeing was so much better, stress levels quickly went down, even my midwife told me I looked like a new woman! Definitely the best decision. And I would've never been able to make it to my original planned date, I'd still be there now! My pregnancy has been going well, although I've been struggling a little as I'm well into the 3rd trimester now; tiredness, backache, heart burn, acid reflux, mild SPD and worst and most painful of all, torn stomach muscles!! OUCH! I'm having to wear a tight support belt as moving around without it is agony!!

We also had our HD Live scan. It was amazing. Seeing our boy so clearly!! Just can't wait to see him now!! It's all getting very exciting! Although if truth be told, I'm really anxious and scared about the labour/birth now. It's been 10 years since I had Bradley, but you NEVER forget how it felt, and I'm so nervous this time round!

I also lost my Grandad this month, which was really hard for my family. :(

I've started to do the #100HappyDays photo tag too, follow me on Instagram to catch my photos.

Some favourites this month...

Skincare Product of the Month...
The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (£4.99) is the best for removing my makeup at night and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean afterwards. 

Haircare Product of the Month...
This month I started using Hask Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil* on my hair and it feels and smells amazing. I use it on wet and dry hair and it leaves it feeling so soft. I can't get over how lovely it smells too, I think its strawberries?

MakeUp Product of the Month...
This month I've loved using my MAC Playland Lip & Cheek Colour in For Your Amusement (£18.00) [see my MAC limited ed haul here]. It's a gorgeous pale pink colour that brightens my face up when applied to the cheeks and lips, its a pleasure to use! 

Bath/Body Product of the Month...
I don't think I'll ever stop using Lush's Angels On Bare Skin Cleanser (£6.40), it works as a fab face and body exfoliator and cleanser and full of fab natural ingredients to help balance skin tone. It's an amazing little product!

Fragrance of the Month...
I've gone a bit mad for the new Jelly Belly fragrance range, and currently loving the Jelly Belly Tangerine Fragranced Candle (£5.10) which I have in my lounge.

Read of the Month...
Bradley & I are still reading Shoutykid by Simon Mayle (£5.99*) which we're enjoying so far! And I'm reading more of the Yummy Mummy Survival Guide by Liz Fraser (£6.89*) which a friend gave me when I first found out I was expecting. It's fab!! 

TV of the Month...
Being on maternity leave, and struggling a lot with my torn stomach muscles, I'm resting a lot in front of the TV so been getting into some things I've never really watched before. Keeping Up With The Kardashians was one of the reality programmes I never really got myself into, but I've been pretty addicted to it this month and looking forward to the new series starting! :)
