Hand & Body Give-A-Wei Review

I received my Hand & Body Give-A-Wei Lotion about two weeks and I personally love this China Herbal Hand & Body Perfection lotion. The scent is clean and fresh and not overpowering. The cream is thick but not greasy at all and it absorbs quickly that makes skin feel silky, no lie. I was impressed at the size of this bottle because I did get this as a freebie. Say good-bye to dry skin!

ELF Concealer Pencil and Brush Review

Hey dolls!
I have the ELF Concealer Pencil and Brush in Medium and I must say, I like it. I only use the “conceal” side of the pencil to cover up any unwanted blemishes and skip the “blend” brush. I prefer using my ring finger to warm it up and just pat it (maybe I'll try to blend brush next week). It matches my skin-tone perfectly and it blends very well and easy to apply. Very creamy but not oily. So far no breakouts and I been using this for this past week and I love the fact it contains tea tree oil and salicylic acid. 

Tutti Frutti Shellac Nails

I forgot to mention I twitpic my latest shellac'd nails two weeks and the color is in Tutti Frutti. So In love with it! I can't wait to pick a new color.

Slowly But Surely

My Do's & Don'ts for the Final Weeks
Seriously I'm tired of being pregnant and so eager to see my bundle of JOY! These last few weeks has been so crucial for me. 
I'm now full-term and will complete my 37 weeks (I'm going by C-section schedule) so I wrote down some things for the remaining weeks as a few precautions:

No tub baths because seriously, it's hard to get in and out so I stick with 3 showers daily. 
I try to stretch my legs, arms and walking slowly because the other day I ran and may sprang my inner thighs or something but my pelvic is sore because I'm always on the Go (bones is also fragile).
Driving is so uncomfortable and really dislike asking others to be my chaueffer ( I think I spell that wrong lol) and wearing a seat belt is a pain! I suggest to wear the lap belt low and under your stomach and tight on your hips.
I packed up my hospital bag and diaper bag the other night and it took me 2hours! I never knew it would be such time consuming.
They say its cheaper and healthier to breastfeed but in my case I didn't breastfeed my first because I was in pain and drugged up with meds. Well breastfeeding requires more work on any part than bottle feeding, but I'll stick with bottle feeding.

 On the side note, I really need a prenatal massage but I'm not comfortable for a stranger to massage my belly regardless if they are skilled or not. I hope after delivering the baby, my lower back pains will go away.
Usually the end of the 9month, some of us preggers get swollen, rounded and sad to say- unattractive. I have been giving myself a home facial and buying new makeup. Hey I have to keep myself looking good :)
Gees I hope all this make sense because it's one of those sleepless nights=dark circles.

Note to New Parents:
Be patient. It took 9 months to become a family, so allow at least that long to adjust to your new role as a parent. God Bless

Count Your Blessings, not your problems!

Help someone by giving your *time
Love someone by visiting or calling.  
Be polite.  
Say "I can" instead of I can't.  
Say & believe "I love myself".  
I love life.  
Live with love and passion. 
Focus on life in the present and most important not in the past.
Spend that quality time with loved one and not on the computer.
and most of all Smile :) Smile :) Smile :)



So I gave up my favorite thing in the world, Chocolate! I must say at first I was going through withdrawal but it's not that bad or should I say it's not the end of the world. I have been substituting it with lots of fruits, vegetables and most of all anything with vanilla. 
So what did you give up for LENT?

22 Days Left In My Pregnancy!

Sorry for the lack of not blogging. So yes it's my last trimester and I have 22 days left in my pregnancy and I'm so ready for her arrival!

Can I just say I do feel the heaviness in my belly like major! This week I experience a feeling of "dropping" and added weight as she slips lower into my pelvis and it feel like a striking pain sometimes. As a second-time Mom, I really try to stay off my feet but I just can't allow myself to sit still or lay there and I'd rather be active. Most important, I'd learned that the discomfort wouldn't last forever (pelvic pressure) and that it would be repaid a million times over with a perfect, precious little person. I do look "extra" pregnant lol and as of today I'm 130 lbs.and feel like I'm about to Pop instantenously (because second babies tend to be low)! I cut down on sodium a lot which may explain why I don't appear to be rounded and swollen and for Lent is no chocolate whatsoever! 

With my second pregnancy it's still a thrilling adventure because I get to share every precious moment with my 5 year old daughter, and my family because when I had my first, I was living out of state with no family support. So I say this, it comes with its own surprises. 
I consider myself as "SuperMom and SuperWoman" because I don't sweat the small stuff and I'm more relaxed. I don't have those weird highs and lows nor mood swings or anything with this pregnancy. I guess because I know what to expect this time around and not let anxiety take over me. 
As you may know as a second-time Mom, it's more of seeing the light at the end of the tunnel because second labors tend to be faster, much faster!
