    It can be hard to feel good while you’re pregnant. I know pregnancy can sometimes make me feel my absolute best and more feminine. But other times, it really makes me feel my worst. I’m bloated, uncomfortable, and unpleasant (just ask my husband).

    A little pampering and relaxation can go a long way with making me feel better.

    Duckworth NYC is a bundle bag company, who specialize in the Special Delivery Bundle bag, or a go-bag to take with you to the hospital when you meet your new little one.

    I know, I know, its February 3rd.

    But January was a really hard pregnancy month (#firsttrimesterproblems), and I took a lot of naps and my little corner of the internet had to go on the back burner to my nausea and fatigue.

    But now, I’m in my second trimester and my energy is back! Mostly. So I’m catching up, and you’ll get 2 Grove posts this month.

    If you’ve never heard of Grove, head here!

    Pack your Purse to Combat Morning Sickness and Pregnancy Woes

    It’s still that time of year. The time for sickness. Yuck. Especially the stomach bug! Just this past weekend we were out of town and my sister came down with it. But, even when it’s not that time of year, there are still a lot of things you can do that will keep you healthy.

    I’ve always had tummy issues. It’s caused me a lot of pain and sick days over the years. I’ve learned a good way to keep my gut healthy is by taking probiotics.

    What is a probiotic?

    Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.

    Disclaimer: I received these products in exchange for review. All opinions are my own. 

    Hello!

    My apologies that I haven’t been posting as often the past couple of weeks. This pregnancy exhaustion is getting the best of me. But I’m nearing the end of the first trimester and starting to get some energy back so hopefully I will be back to my regular blogging routine soon!

    I’m connoting my journey to rid my home of harmful chemicals into 2017. I made a lot of progress last year, but I’m not done yet! Today I want to talk about odors.

    Friday Favorites- Beautycounter

    Happy Friday!

    Do you ever wonder what’s in your make up? No? I never did either. But you should. It’s kind of terrifying! The average american woman puts 12-20 chemicals on her skin every single day. And your skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it.

    And think about this Europe has banned 1,300 chemicals from being used in beauty and personal products. The U.S. has banned 11.

    Those are some scary numbers. We don’t even realize the harmful things we are letting into our home, let alone putting right on our skin!

    Enter, Beautycounter. Beautycounter has a “never” list. A list of harmful ingredients they vow to never use in their products (check out the never list here). Every product from Beautycounter is 100% natural and safe. They are products you can feel god about putting on your skin, rather than fearful. Beautycounter lists every single ingredient used on their labels. Which, get this, is not required by law, which is why many other companies do not. So we have no idea what we’re using!
