What I'm Loving Lately


Happy Wednesday! 

With my third trimester quickly coming to a close, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite things that I've been loving this last month. 
{And my collage is funky and I'm too tired to fix it. Oops!}



1. It's true that your skin changes during pregnancy...at least for me. During the first trimester, I was hit with major cystic acne. The second trimester I "had the glow" and now I'm just back to my normal combination skin, but add that it's winter: dry on the top and oily under the surface. Enter this mask, which just has a little cooling feel to it and really seems to pull out the "ick" hiding in my pores. I love it! 

2. Brandon put this in my stocking and I am obsessed with it. I use it all over my body {being gentle on my belly, obviously} once a week and can really tell a difference in the smoothness of my skin. It especially works wonders on my hands; they're so cracked and dry this winter because I have been washing them 10 times more than usual to make sure I don't get any more sick than I already am. 

3. A pregnant girl has to talk about food, right? I am a sucker for any cheese, but I put one of these bad boys in my lunch every day {with the Toasteds crackers} and am obsessed. Seriously, I just blogged about cheese. 

4. I have had this nail polish for awhile, but after a fall of dark polish, I'm loving this semi-bright color. 

5. My friend Liz told me about this juice, and I admit that I was a little hesitant to drink anything green, thinking it'd be a bit nasty. But it's not! It's actually sweet and tastes more fruity than vegetable-y. Plus, I like to tell myself that it's healthy so I'm actually benefiting me and my baby. Ha!

6. I read about this stuff on A Treasure Hunt blog and bought it on a whim since my skin is being all weird lately. It works! It goes on with a green tint but has really helped reduce the redness and dryness in my face. I have been using it in the mornings and sticking to my Lancôme moisturizer at night. 

7. Since I haven't been sleeping well at all lately {getting up 3+ times to go to the bathroom} and being sick, so I bought this dark circle minimizing eye cream to use in the mornings. I've only been using it since Monday, so I don't have results yet, but it does moisturize very well. I'm hoping it works because goodness knows I'll have the worst dark circles when this baby gets here!
