    Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade Mocktail


    Ah, pregnancy.

    One of the most stressful things a woman can go through, and yet, we take away her wine. It’s a cruel rule.

    I’ve also got a bit of a sweet tooth (plus a pretty intense ice craving), so sometimes I like to make fun mocktails!

    Today I’m sharing my recipe for Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade here’s what you’ll need:

    A Classy Maternity Look

    Looking classy while pregnant can sometimes be a struggle. All I want to do is lay around in my sweatpants. But alas, I am an adult with responsibilities who must sometimes venture out into the real world. Which can require real clothes.

    And don’t get me wrong, I love a cute outfit as much as the next girl. But the struggle to put yourself together can definitely be real during pregnancy!

    Figure 8 Maternity makes it so easy with so many cute and classy choices!

    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.
