In case you only follow me on this blog and not on Instagram too, quite a bit has changed around here! The biggest being, I’m pregnant! Ben and I are expecting a little girl this October and we could not be more thrilled!
It was especially exciting when Oh Baby Boxes reached out to me! It made pregnancy feel even that much more real. They were kind enough to send me one of their boxes and it was so fun to get it in the mail and unwrap all the goodies. In case you aren’t familiar, Oh Baby Boxes is a subscription box that you can get monthly full of all kinds of pregnancy safe goodies that are tailored to your due date! Each box contains 6-8 full size items worth over $100 for only $39.99. After pregnancy, they’ll even send you postpartum boxes for a smooth transition. I’m so excited to share the box they sent me for my second trimester! It’s packed full of self care items which are SO necessary right now!
Formulated with its hero ingredient – pure Black Winter Truffle Extract, along with Sweet Almond Oil, Mallow Leaf, Centella Asiatica and Chamomile, this gentle cleanser delivers intense hydration and nourishing moisture, while improving skin’s resilience and tone + it is ideal for all skin types, vegan, natural, cruelty-free & free from all harmful shenanigans!
My skin has been so dry lately, so I really liked that this is specifically made for dry and dull skin. It felt great on my skin and smells amazing! I also love that they refer to it as “free from all harmful shenanigans.” Definitely makes me feel good about using it!
The Eternal Face Oil from Minimo is a vitamin rich, all-natural oil that helps retain your coveted mama glow while revitalizing your skin’s complexion, reducing dark spots and fine lines and repairing damaged tissues & scars.
This one I wasn’t too sure about because of it being an oil. I’ve been loving trying new skincare lately, though, so I was game! It didn’t actually take long to absorb into my skin at all and after it did, my skin felt so soft. Plus again, it smelled so good!
For mama’s looking to moisturize and give instant life to their lips, this “power” boost is a cult-favorite, matte liquid lipstick instantly delivers long-lasting and intense pigment that moisturizes and gives bright life to your lips. The perfect shade of red for any season!
I obviously haven’t had any reason to wear this out yet, but I did give it a try at home. I loved that it didn’t feel drying like liquid lipsticks can and judging by how it would not budge when I was trying to wash it off, I think it’s safe to say it’s long lasting!
This custom-designed Oh Baby Boxes New Mama Affirmation Card Deck includes 30 beautiful cards adorned with watercolor art containing positive mantras to help you be more compassionate and kind to yourself. Start your day by pulling an affirmation card to create positive momentum for your thoughts and actions throughout pregnancy and beyond!
These might just be my favorite thing in the whole box. I love the positive affirmations on each card and the watercolor designs are so pretty! Some days being pregnant is just hard, but these are some great reminders that this is what my body was made to do. And waiting on the other side is my sweet little angel baby! I can’t wait!
Unicorn Dreams Whipped Body Butter is an amazing hand crafted organic based moisturizer. Use on your face, hands, feet or anywhere in between.
This definitely did not feel how I expected! It was such a fun little goodie though and smelled so sweet, it reminded me of cotton candy.
These silk eye shades are made with high quality fabric to help ease you into dreamland and get you the relaxation you deserve without worries. A bonafide sleep aid and eye relaxer, not only are these super-soft, they are also breathable, gentle and easy-to-adjust so it won’t tangle your hair nor snag your pillow.
I actually have an eye shade that I use a lot but it’s not that comfortable. This one on the other hand, is silky soft and so comfy! I will definitely be swapping out my old one with this one, hopefully it can help me get more much needed shut eye!
Made with extracts of Rose, Aloe, Centella Asiatica, False Daisy, Oat Kernal and Argan Oil, this ultra hydrating hand cream cocoons your hands with warmth, moisture, and a refreshing scent. Super conditioning and packed with skin-loving amino acids, minerals, and vitamins essential for hydrated hands!
Like I mentioned before, my skin has been so dry lately. This hand cream is lightweight and smells delicious. It’s also the perfect size to pop in my purse and take with me on the go!
Scientifically formulated for women, Eat Like a Woman Plant-Based Nutrition Bars have the correct ratio of carbohydrates to protein that can stimulate neurotransmitter health – your emotional chemistry + these vegan bars harness the delicious, appetite-appeasing power of fruits and nuts and are super loaded with protein and fiber which makes it a tasty boost anytime of the day!
I haven’t tried this one yet but it sounds amazing. I have definitely been way more hungry lately and am always bringing a snack with me everywhere I go. I will be putting this in my purse for the next time hunger strikes!
