Pregnancy Perks

ACO - Confetti Glitter

China Glaze - Feel the Breeze

China Glaze - Innocence

Today I called in sick to work. The past two days I've been feeling dizzy, having headaches, and throwing up for the first time since my first trimester.

Because I'm sitting at home being miserable and watching Sex and the City the movie, I decided to write this little post about my favourite perk to being pregnant- long, strong, and beautiful nails.
I've always had brittle and short nails, so while pregnant I've been obsessing over the difference.

Through all the craziness I've felt during this pregnancy, I have found myself looking at my temporary claws and smiling because I know in just two short months they'll be gone. It gets me thinking that sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the little things that make us happy.

Julep Maven First Box Free (Just $2.99 Shipping to Canada)!!

I finally bit the bullet and signed up for Julep Maven. I'm so excited to try out Julep nail polish, but I'm even more excited that my first box was free. I live in Canada, and I was extremely surprised that all I had to pay was $2.99 for shipping. No other fees- just $2.99.

That's insane you guys. In Canada we're constantly getting screwed over with shopping/duty fees, so I couldn't wait to let everyone know about this.

Just go and sign up for a subscription and upon checkout, type the code "hello you" to get your first box free. If you don't want the actual monthly subscription, simply cancel before next month's cycle!

Sign up HERE to get your free box!

Look for a review of my first Julep Maven box soon.

Weekly Links Vol. 1

1. A funny reminder that no one cares about what you want when your wife is in labour.

2. Sometimes I feel too busy to pull out my sewing machine and get creative, so I'm loving the idea of this new book (written by an amazing blogger).

3. Chris and I have seen some extremely dated kitchens in the older homes we've been viewing lately. This makeover gives me hope!

4. This dessert looks so delicious to my pregnant self. I think I'll be making it this weekend!

5. I can't remember how I stumbled across her blog, but this is definitely one of my new favourite reads.

12 weeks

Image Via

I have 12 weeks of work left before my planned maternity leave. 12 weeks that ultimately seems so short, but is oh so far away.
I currently work full time- 9.5 hours a day Monday through Friday. It’s getting harder and harder every week.
I’m extremely grateful for my job. I actually like my job. But waking up at 6 a.m. every day and juggling my family life as well as finding a house and prepping for baby is wearing me out big time.
When I’m home, all I do is sleep. I feel like a pregnant zombie.
… and that’s my complaint for today. 12 weeks to go.
