Carry this little person inside you and be able to feel all his movements is just the best feeling in the world.

VITAL TOUCH - ORGANIC SKINCARE FOR PREGNANCY AND NEW PARENTS


Now when my pregnancy is getting to the end I'm more careful what products I'm using and I'm trying to relax more .....before the big day. At the moment my legs are tired and (just a bit) swollen. I love ending my day soaking in the bath.  

I came across with Natalia by Vital Touch organic products, I have a bit time to try product and is great! Using this product is not just looking after your skin (during pregnancy and after ); lovely citrus smell is like home aromatherapy! 

 "Natalia products by Vital Touch is based on the work and passion of founding director, massage therapist/aromatherapist & reflexologist, Katie Whitehouse. Having specialised in massaging pregnant women for many years, Katie and her husband Martin founded Vital Touch Pure Oils and the Natalia range of organic skincare for pregnancy and new parents".

"Natalia skincare products for pregnancy, birth and new parents were inspired by a combination of my own pregnancies, and my work with pregnant women & midwives over 20 years in massage practice, and of real life!" 


Beautiful Pregnant Body Box in this box you will find: Prenatal Anti-Stretch Butter (30ml), Prenatal Leg Refresher (60ml), Prenatal Beautiful Body Scrub (60ml), Organic Ultra soft Cotton Flannel (ideals for skincare and baths) and Step By Step Pregnancy and Labour Massage Guide (see picture No.1) 
Prenatal Beautiful Body Scrub - No need to moisturize after your shower or bath when you use this luxurious and comforting moisturizing skin scrub – your skin will be soft and silky.
Prenatal Anti Stretchmarks Butter - this is my favorite product - consistency of this product is solid but butter melts on contact with skin and absorb quickly.

Prenatal Bath Soak  - you will need only few drops in your bath to have bath full of bubbles ; deeply relaxing and aromatic product. 
 Prenatal Massage Oil - made from healing and nourishing sunflower and French lavender oils, allowing you to connect gently with your changing body.  Often purchased with a Vital Touch Step by Step Guide to Pregnancy and Labour Massage.

BABY BOY ROOM - DIY LAMPSHADE


It was very hard for me to find this perfect lampshade for my little baby nursery. 
I didn't know what "theme" I wanted in baby's room, soo I decided to make my own lampshade. 
I was shopping for props for baby shower and I bought some fabrics from John Lewis.

Everything what you will need is: 
-fabric, 
-old or new lampshade, 
-scissors,
- fabric glue or thread.
  
First I measured how much material I will need to cover my old desk lampshade, make sure you cut excess material. Using fabric glue I stick fabric to lampshade. Let it glue dry our and your new lampshade is ready. 

Also when I was working on baby shower banner - bunting , I had spare triangle pieces soo I decorate  plane white lampshade with it. 

Hope you like it.

STOKKE XPLORY STROLLER


Today I would like to introduce you this beautiful Stokke Xplory Stroller.  

When my parcel arrived I couldn't wait to put  pram together (stroller came in massive box and big parts was separated - I'm not saying that you will need to build your pram from scratch - ha ha!) Also in the box was helpful user guide. 

I decided to go for Stokke Xplory stroller because I love shape of it and also when I was looking online it was the best option for me. Stokke also have other prams with basket underneath but I love this model. My pram is in Beige Melange colour.

I have my stroller for about 2 weeks and everyday I walk around the house with it - practicing when baby arrives.   

I found this beautiful stroller very easy to use, hopefully if you still looking for this perfect pram this helps you make decision: 

1. Handle - is easy to adjust to your high; also underneath the seat is white clip (I forgot to take picture of it) to adjust high of seat.  
On a handle is space for your cup holder (comes separate -  cost £18). My next buy! 

2. Attached seat - is easy to install and also seat facing both ways, just press white clip and you can take off seat from the frame. 

3. To make sure we installed seat in right position - Stokke letting us know by this little Red or Green dots that seat is in correct position.  


4. Also you can change angle of the seat from "seat" to "lie down" position - just push gently this white clip.

5. Foot-board is east to remove, you wont need it for a newborn baby but it will be very helpful for a toddler. 

6. When you planing to put stroller into your car, you will need to separate seat from the frame. 

Push this little white clip to ward you and in same time press this long clip, back wheels will move closer to front wheels. 

I couldn't ask for more! This pram is just perfect for me and my baby!
I need to add that safety seat belts are very strong and comes with shoulder pads.

Also you can accessorize your stroller buying different "covers" for the seat, rain coverwinter kit - with super cute gloves, changing bag, pram pack - handy when you traveling, parasol , rain cover and many more.
