With only 12 more days remaining in my pregnancy (can I get a HALLELUJAH?!), I thought it would be appropriate to share my current third trimester favorites today. I can truly attribute my sanity, even at my gigantic uncomfortable size, to these five things.
To put it simply, this stuff smells divine. The first time I used it, I nearly made Mr. Cotten go to the grocery store and buy me pistachio ice cream… at midnight. I’m not going to lie – I’ve contemplated eating this stuff to see if it tastes as good as it smells.
It looks like a sugar scrub in the container, but this is definitely a creamy/lotion-y/oily texture when it goes on. A little goes a long way, and it lasts a good 24 hours. I have had far fewer issues with stretch marks this pregnancy, which I partially attribute to this miracle butter cream. Every time I start to feel my skin stretch, I slather on the pistachio oil and immediately feel better… and smell delicious.
Two || Perrier Pink Grapefruit
Sparkling water has become a staple for me. I’m not a big water drinker (even fun water bottles only interest me for a minute), but water with bubbles is a totally different story. Give me all the carbonation! I usually stick to plain Perrier sparkling water, but right now I can’t get enough of the pink grapefruit flavor. It’s not too sweet, and doesn’t taste artificial at all.
Three || Tums Smoothie Peppermint
I know it’s an old wives’ tale, but there are two things I know for a fact.
One, Baby C2 has a head full of hair.
Two, I eat these like candy.
Four || DryBar Triple Sec 3-in-1
Speaking of hair…
My hair has drastically changed over the last nine months. Last pregnancy, I had super thick curly hair that I needed to wash every other day. This pregnancy, I have a limp wave that I can only wash once a week. DryBar’s Triple Sec is seriously my best friend at the moment. As in, I use it every single day. A dry shampoo, texturizer and volumizer in one… and it smells amazing.
There seems to be a reoccurring theme here.
Five || Talenti Roman Raspberry Sorbetto
Ice cream gives me serious heartburn. So, I thought I could outsmart my craving by eating a non-dairy sorbetto instead.
I was wrong. It still gives me heartburn. But it’s so worth it.
I can assure you, in 13 days my favorites will be baby snuggles, sleep and adult beverages. 😉
