Happy Birthday Husband!

Happy Birthday Husband!

Marriage 5

Today, The Hubbi turns 28 and I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to the Love of My Life. I know you hate getting older, but no worries, I love you just the same, if not more, through the years and it’s only going to get better. You’ve grown so much since I first met you and you’ve turned into such a wonderful husband and father, I couldn’t ask for… Read more »

Starting the Count Down here on this week’s The Bump Tales. I’m just about done with being 7 months and moving on to the next month, yay! Let me tell you, BG2 has been nothing but active this week, I love it though. Occasionally, I’ll just sit back and smile with my hands on my belly while she does her thing and just revel in the joy of being pregnant…. Read more »

The Blog Dare is this great new challenge set up by Tiffany from BloggyMoms.com where we all get a chance to write a blog post everyday (or as much as we can) based on a certain topic. I just had to join in today’s challenge because it’s about pregnancy! It was mid-July and my friends and I were about to go out to celebrate my roommate’s birthday. That, of course,… Read more »

So if you remember last month, I decided to take part in the Skintactix Blogger Challenge where I tried out one of their skin care kits for 30 days. So here are my opinions and review of their product. After trying out their kit for the past month I have to say I have noticed a significant change in how my skin looks and feels.

Review: Bashful Bump Maternity Bodysuits

Review: Bashful Bump Maternity Bodysuits

Reviews 11

Being pregnant in the winter can be quite challenging, especially for a frugal mom like me! I refuse to buy all those expensive maternity clothes because who knows what size I’ll be at what time and I’ll only be wearing them for a short period. And yet, it’s a dilemma because most of my shirts now are riding up since The Bump is steadily growing and my belly does it… Read more »

Book Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

Shadowland is the 3rd installment in the Immortals Series by Alyson Noel. This book wasn’t really that great to me, probably because of the struggle of Ever and Damen’s relationship. Here, they have to deal with the consequences of Ever’s (stupid, albeit, understandable) decisions and Roman’s ever-growing presence. In this book I found the characters to be quite annoying, especially Haven, who inevitably plays a bigger role in this series… Read more »

Book Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★★

Blue Moon is the 2nd installment in the Immortals Series by Alyson Noel. I have to say that it is my favorite of the series so far. You really get to delve into the romantic and intimate parts of Ever and Damen’s relationship in the first half of this book. Honestly, I enjoyed this book so much I couldn’t put it down. I loved how “in love” Ever and Damen… Read more »

The Bump Tales – Week 30

The Bump Tales 6

Oh, wow! It’s a monumental entry in today’s The Bump Tales. I can’t believe I’m 30 weeks pregnant! It’s the home stretch now, just time to fatten up the baby and let its lung develop some more, and time to get all that baby stuff organized and prepare myself for Labor Day! So I went to the doctor this week and it was a boring and typical one. After the… Read more »

Review & Giveaway: Skin MD Natural [CLOSED]

Giveaways, Reviews 14

Winter can be really harsh on your skin so you need a good lotion that will keep hands and face from drying out so easily against all that wind and cold. That’s why it’s a good thing I came across Skin MD Natural shielding lotion. It basically provides a barrier for your skin to protect it from harsh irritants and keeps your skin well hydrated, without that greasy feeling some… Read more »
