Baby bump & Puppy birthday!

Yesterday, October 21st, was our wonderful dogs second birthday. I kind of make a big deal out of it for him, I know he has no idea why its any different from any other day, but he's my baby and I like to spoil him any chance I can. I had the day off yesterday so I picked him up a few new treats and made sure he got to play outside lots and just generally have a good day. I also made sure to snap a few pictures so I'll add them in here.

Isn't he just precious <3

Yesterday also marked my 28th week, which is crazy! I know I say that all the time but it really is amazing and scary how quickly the weeks are flying by now. As each week progresses I get more and more uncomfortable, which I know is to be expected. I officially have a little less then 3 weeks left of work which excites me. Getting little or no sleep when I don;t need to be at work by 7:30 in the morning will be slightly more manageable.

I predict that we will have a soccer player because boy does he ever like to kick now! Its such a cool an amazing thing to be able to feel him moving around in there all the time. There's really hasn't been too many more things going on this past week, just lots of the same. People are also predicting a fairly large sized baby, which I can't help but agree with!

27 week update!

Being pregnant really makes you realize how quickly time really goes by, we only have 13 more weeks until we get to meet our little man! Were into the double digits in out countdown, 94 to be exact, and getting to that point where were getting anxious for him to get here.

Nothing too much has changed or happened since my last update, just a lot of the same. I think some swelling is starting to set in, I took off my rings as a precaution because they were starting to get snug. I also wore a pair of flats today that I haven't wore in a few months and they felt a bit more snug as well.  I also find lots of little everyday chores becoming more difficult as each day passes, as well as I get more tired and sore it seems as each day goes by.

I also had originally planned on working until the first week into December but that plan has now changed,I think November 1st is going to be my last day. I'm on my feet all day and have some physical tasks I need to do so its just getting to be too tough especially when I hardly get any sleep at night, so I don't have much time left until I'll be home a lot more.

As usual to finish this little post off a new belly picture, I'm still expending quite a bit!

October Topbox!

Hey everyone, sorry I'm a couple days lagte with this one but here is what I recieved for my October topbox:

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution- Gently cleanses face and eyes and removes water resistant makeup in one simple step.

Caudalie Hand and nail cream- Moisturization, softness and youth all combined in this anti-oxidant cream made from orange pulp for silky-smooth and protected hands. Leaves no greasy film.

L'Occitane Immortal precious eye balm- A light daily balm with proven firming benefits for the eye contour. Dark circles and puffiness are less visible.

Skyn Iceland Pure cloud cream with Arctic berries and Peptides- Light as air daily moisturizing cream to hydrate,soothe and protect severely dry, sensitive skin.

I'll admit the only product here I knew about before hand was the Bioderma, and it is amazing. It's a bit pricey so it's not something I have around all the time but it truely does work wonders and worth the price tag!  The other products here all seem like they could be really good. I have heard of Caudalie products before and a lot of people seem to love them so excited to try the hand cream. What did you all get?

September favorites!

Alright it's that time again, September favorites! I had my camera around this time so the pictures are better!

Rimmel Wake me up & Revlon Nearly naked foundation: These are my 2 go to foundations for everyday use, I can use them separately or sometimes will mix them together depending on what sort of finish I am going for. This is my second bottle of the Nearly Naked in less then a year ans for me that says a lot as I hardly ever actually finish a foundation.

Maybelline Dream Lumi touch concealer: I go through phases with this mainly because its not something I use all the time but it works wonders for brightening up the under eye area. I don't get much sleep these days so I reach for this product more often and love it, blends great too.

Hard Candy bronzer in Tiki: This is a bronzer but I personally use it as an all over the cheek highlighter for days where I want to skip the blush and just give my face more of a glow. In the summer when I have more of a tan I will just use it as a regular highlighter. It just you a nice warm golden look to your face and really helps brighten your whole face up.

Dior Shimmer powder in Rose Diamond: The picture doesn't do this product justice the is more of a color range from a highlight shade to a deeper pink/rose color. I find myself reaching for this product a lot lately, its a perfect one step product, it works are your blush and highlighter. I take my brush and swirl all the colors together usually to get a lovely pink/rose colors glow on the cheeks.

Wet N Wild eye shadow palette in Comfort Zone: This is a perfect no fuss palette for everyday use, has a lot of great variety and the colors are super pigmented and its really cheap, you can't go wrong!

Smiths Rosebud salve:
This is my favorite go to lip balm, I always make sure to use it at night before bed and it keeps your lips super moisturized!

Lastly a random favorite, Slatkin & Co candle in Leaves: This is my absolute favorite fall candle, it smells amazing! Its described as "rich blend of golden nectar, red apple and spiced berries". I love a lot of Slatkin & Co candles but I love when the weather starts to cool down and I can whip this one out, makes the house feel so cozy!

Thanks for reading, what were some of your favorites?
