I always thought that if I were to be pregnant, I wouldn’t want to find out the sex of the baby. It’s a true surprise, and in my opinion, it doesn’t really change how I feel about the baby. I still sort of feel that way, but my husband is super excited to find out – to the point that he wanted to find out and keep it a secret even I chose not to. So we decided that in a few weeks, when I have my anatomy scan, we will find out if the baby is genetically male or female. Now that that decision has been made, I’m also super hyped to find out, because, well, it’s just fun!

In the last few months, LeChat has become one of my go-to brands of nail lacquer. I’ve reviewed a few of their collections in the past ([here] and [here]) – and spoiler alert: I was super impressed! The new Perfect Match Exposed Collection is no exception. This six-piece neutrals collection is classic and understated. Absolutely gorgeous. Like all LeChat shades, these are available in both Dare to Wear Nail Lacquer and Perfect Match Soak Off Gel Polish. I set out to find my perfect neutral polish and use it in a fun nail art manicure. Let’s take a look at that journey…!
As a first-time-pregnant-person, I’ve been told that I have a ton to learn. I watched a lot of The Baby Story on TLC when I was a kid (I mean…a lot of episodes…) and I’ve read a lot of Yahoo Answers, so I’m basically an expert, right?! I’m almost 17 weeks, and I’ve come to this conclusion: everyone is the expert of their own pregnancy. In a lot of cases, complete polar opposite sides of the spectrum could be considered normal symptoms. Dry skin? Normal. Oily skin? Normal. Showing at 14 weeks? Not showing at 20 weeks? Want to have sex all the time? Never want to have sex again? All normal.
When I walk into a LUSH store, I am always instantly overwhelmed. The colors and fragrances assault my senses and I want to buy everything! Sometimes, I give into that urge – that’s for sure. But other times, I stick to my favorite ride-or-die items, once of which is Oatifix Fresh Face Mask. This yummy mask is packed with ingredients that calm and soothe sensitive or dry skin. I absolutely love it!
