PUMPKINS, BUNNY HATS & PHOTOGRAPHY #LITTLELOVES


I discovered this #littleloves linky a while ago and it has sat in my drafts for forever and I thought it was about time I actually posted it. I really love this idea and I think it's always a good thing to reflect on the little things you've loved throughout the week because all too often they get forgotten or overshadowed by the mundane, everyday bullshit. 

Here are mine:









I've been really loving these blogs this week:



dearmummybear.co.uk







The Mist! I've been hooked on Jane The Virgin for a while now and fancied a change and this was the first thing Netflix suggested and it didn't disappoint! I actually spent all day binge watching the first season and it's amazing! It's based on the book by Stephen King and looking online it didn't get a very good review but I loved it!











Technically I made this a while ago now but it's only just started getting cold enough for Lily to wear hats, much to her displeasure. This little bunny hat is the first thing I have crocheted since fucking up my wrist back in April. I'm really pleased with how it turned out considering I wasn't working from a pattern. I lined the inside of the ears with Liberty of London fabric which I think is so pretty. Quite proud of this one.










Technically not something I wore but there little Kickers are so cute! I had been on the hunt for decent shoes for Lily for a while, we got Clarks at first but the fit was crap and she couldn't walk properly in them so after much thought we went for Kickers. They are the first pair of shoes that she has walked outside confidently in and they were also recommended by the physiotherapist for her bendy ankles and they seem to be helping so I'm really pleased with them!











Storm Brian is currently shaking the place up where I am as I'm writing this. There is something about the rain that calms my soul. Although, my love for storms is very much a love hate one, I love the beauty of nature but the destruction that comes hand in hand with Mother Nature is just awful.





We had a family day out to Packwood House on Friday to get the autumnal vibes going with their pumpkin patch. We had a little photography session with the kids which was challenging to say the least haha. Me and Ben studied media and photograph together at college and it's quite rare these days that we both get out cameras out at the same time but it was so nice to whack up the nostalgia by taking the cameras out along with the bustle of switching up lenses. Saying that though, taking photos of a running toddler with a camera that doesn't auto focus is a bitch.

So that's my little loves for this week! If you want to join in then click on the link below for all you need to know <3

LILY'S 21 MONTH UPDATE



Weight 

I've not had her weighed this month so I'm not 100% sure. I tend to have her weighed every few months these days. 
Clothes Size 

She's now very much in 9-12, some 6-9 months still fit her but it's mostly 9-12 now with a few 12-18 jumpers.
Milk 

Cutting down on the breastfeeding has gone totally out of the window this month as we have all had cold after cold after cold and she's just wanted to feed loads which has been hard but sometimes it's the only thing that will calm her down.

Food

Food is another things that's packed up and fucked off out the window due to snot and coughs. She enjoyed a whole poppadom the other day though which she loved, normally I break them up for her so having a whole one was quite the novelty in Lily world. She's also quite liking crackers particularly the Tuc ones, she will nibble away on them quite happily.

Teeth 

We now have 4 teeth cutting at once and we DEFINITELY know about it. 


Sleep 
Sleep has not only gone out the window, it's packed its bags and fucked off to another universe. What with being ill and teething she has been feeding like a newborn all month and I've had the flu so it's basically been hell. I've been ill for over a month which I'm sure is down to not getting any bloody sleep. The cot hasn't made a difference really but I've started putting her in it with a quilt int he hope that she won't wake up because she's cold as she has a deep hatred for blankets and kicks them off so I am hoping the quilt will 1. be harder to kick off and 2. it is slightly heavier so I'm hoping that will some how help. Fuck knows how much I'm hoping anyway.
Milestones 
We finally have some words! I wrote a blog post earlier in the month of the words Lily can say (read here) and since then she has said loads more. Her voice is little and whispery but they are words and I'm so proud and relieved.

She can also knows and can point to various body parts. Mainly head, shoulders, knees and toes but also nose and eyes. Good old nursery rhymes. 

Likes 

We have entered the Peppa Pig stage. Or "ig" as Lily calls it. 
She loves any and all animals, she will point at every dog and tell them they're an "og" and wants to know what each and every creature is. 
Colouring in animals in books. I will never be able to sell or donate her books because there are tiny scribbles in every single one pretty much!
Cats. She gets so excited by cats. Cats in real life, cat toys, cats in videos or on TV. Cats cats cats. Particularly *this video* of some cats with a lobster and a fish in a bowl.

Duplo. She loves building super tall towers and lining the bricks up. 


Her little shopping basket we got from The Entertainer. She loves putting it on her head haha!


Her ride on toys, she's now finally tall enough to properly be able to scoot about and she loves it!


Walking outside. 


Cat videos on YouTube. She will laugh her little head off just watching cats follow each other.
Dislikes

Blankets
touching her feet or anything touching her feet in general.
Having her eyes cleaned. She has conjunctivitis at the moment and literally hates me whenever I need to wash her eyes.
YouTube adverts. Literally fucks her off so much, how dare anything come between her and Pingu time. 
How am I feeling?

Apart from being ill for the past month I've been feeling alright. The breastfeeding aversion has been strong again lately and I've been struggling quite badly with negative thoughts about feeding but I kind of expected it seeing as Lily is pretty much attached to a boob 80% of the time. There are points where I would rather chop my own tit off than feed her which then gives me all the Mum guilt in the history of Mum guilt ever. I don't enjoy breastfeeding at all but realistically at the moment, I'd get even less sleep if I didn't because she point blank won't settle at night properly for Ben. I do want to stop soon though so we will have to see how it goes I guess. 

Catch up with her other updates here.

AUTUMN SKINCARE COLLECTION


I've been majorly sucking in the skincare department for far too long now and I've been trying my best to at least cleanse, tone and moisturise a few times a week. I used to be such a skincare junkie, always trying new products and making sure I do all the steps everyday but I've been neglecting myself for long enough and I've been trying my best to look after my skin a little better.


My skin hates everything, hormones, heat, wind, central heating. It never knows whether it's coming or going with a mixture of dry and oily which makes it pretty difficult to find products that work for me but I've plunged into my rather ridiculously large stash of products and these are my current favourites:




Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish has been a favourite of mine for about 5 years now, I always go back to this. My skin loves it and I can always tell if I've not used it in a while. I use this to take my make up off, as a mask or just as a quick cleanse. If I'm in the bath I will leave it on for a little longer as a sort of quick fix mask and it'll sort out any breakouts.




I got this little Mount Purious Rosewater Toner in a Pink Parcel Box not long ago. I have always loved rosewater as a facial toner. I always have trouble finding a toner that doesn't break me out or dry my skin to buggery but this makes my skin so soft! It smells amazing but I've noticed a vinegary smell to it lately so I'm not sure if it's gone off? It is more apparent if I don't shake it before use, not sure if that's a thing but other than the funky smell it's brilliant!



I got the SportFX Cool Down Primer and Recovery Gel in a Pink Parcel and it's my new favourite primer! It's designed to be used after physical activity, like actual gym sessions not running around after a toddler but that totally counts as a work out right? This is basically a game changer for me and my anxiety! I use this before applying make up which generally means I'm going out. When I start getting anxious my face gets really red and hot but this primer really helps control that. I've also been using it randomly since having really bad sinusitis to cool my face down and help the pain. I love love love love this!




This Figs & Rouge 3 in 1 Hero Cream is a pretty heavy moisturiser so if you don't like something you can feel on your face you probably won't get on with this. I was expecting to break out after using this because anything even remotely heavy normally clogs my face to utter hell but surprisingly this hasn't upset it at all. After getting over the sensation of a heavy cream I fell in love with it. It contains sesame seed oil, avocado oil aloe, cucumber and carrot seed extract and Hyaluronic Acid along with a nourishing Vitamin Complex A, C & E which promotes your skins natural repair system and destroys free radicals. I got this in the June Pink Parcel. 




Caudalie Beauty Elixr is something I have loved for many years now, I first spoke about my love for it on my blog 5 years ago and it's been a firm favourite ever since! It's uses are endless, I love using it as a make up refresher throughout the day as a little pick me up, I find it really gets my glow on and not in a shiny, sweaty way. The scent is always great for anxiety and nausea along with spot killing abilities without drying the skin which is something I always have trouble with.


Zap Zap! Zap! Gets That Chap Day and Night Spot Stick is another subscription box goodie that I received in my Ms Flow Box. I've never really got on with spot sticks, my skin is  a bitch basically and it'll be oily one second and create a spot yet if I put something on it then it'll become drier than the fucking Sahara, flaky and gross as hell. This stick doesn't do that, it just kills the spot like it's meant to and thus has become part of my skincare staples!



Another long standing favourite! Liz Earle Eyebright! This is great for tired Mombie eyes, I tend to soak a cotton pad and lay int he bath with them over my eyes but I find popping it in the fridge before putting it on makes it that extra bit soothing which I definitely been in need of the past few weeks! I love Liz Earle, I've not had a product I don't like from them yet and all the ingredients are natural which always appeals to me when it comes to skincare. 


So that's my current skincare regime! I'm not going to lie and say I do it every night because some days it's a miracle if I actually get changed to go to bed but so far so good on the skin front! I really notice a difference whenever I have a good set of skincare so I'm hoping this will keep up the good work.

PREGNANCY AFTER A LOSS // THE SECOND TRIMESTER


After being told I had a haematoma I got back from the scan, panic googled everything and spent the next 6 weeks on bed rest so my body could concentrate on fixing it. Between that and general tension in the house I just spent most of my time feeling sick and exhausted as hell in our "bedroom" which was half of a living room with a sheet hung up in between. Not the most ideal situation.

I had my midwife booking appointment super late because of having to move doctors and general admin fuck ups so I was about 13 weeks by the time it came around. I remember being pretty terrified in case I ended up hating the midwife or threw up in the middle of the children's centre or something as my morning sickness was pretty intense by this point. I lived off cheese and crackers, Tic Tacs, fizzy elderflower water and Doritos.

We had our 12 week scan a bit late, I was actually more like 14 weeks. This was the day, we didn't need to know the dating really because we had only had a scan a few weeks prior but I desperately wanted to know if the haematoma had at least shrunk. I went in armed with a sample of piss to be told they can't use it and I've have to do another one. Super fucking fun that was, why do they give you such tiny things to try and piss in!? I can hardly see my fucking feet let alone a tiny sample pot. 100% getting piss on my hands and everywhere else too.

I had a student doing my scan, normally I don't mind at all but I was terrified and I couldn't tell if she was trying to scan me or scoop my stomach out like a tub of fucking ice cream. I was actually squeezing Ben's hand at the point because she was hurting me so much. Anyway, everything was perfect and her and the other sonograher were confident that they couldn't find the haematoma so it had been absorbed by my body just like I had hoped! Ben felt the first little movements at 15 weeks a few weeks after I felt the first little wriggles. Finally I could relax...not.


My 20 week scan date fell in the same week Eloise started school so it was all levels of manic what with trying to rush back in time to pick her up instead of being able to take her which is what we had originally hoped to be able to do. After many positions and a mid scan toilet break the sonographer finally managed to measure my baby who was apparently playing hide and seek.

At this point everyone was convinced Lily was going to be a boy so naturally she proved everyone wrong and turned out to be a girl. The sonographer also noted that her head was measuring small but assured me it was only slightly under they expected size and not to worry.

We picked Eloise up after her half day at school and told her in the reception. She was the only one who thought the baby was a girl and desperately wanted a sister so she was pretty pleased.


I was considered high risk and was consultant led anyway because I had retained placenta after my first birth and my initial thoughts were it would be a quick appointment with them explaining some measures to help avoid that happening again and that would be that. I was wrong, obviously. I was about 26 weeks I think when I had my first consultant appointment, it was a ridiculous amount of weeks late because I kept having to reschedule for various reasons but I eventually got there.

Everything was okay, they discussed how the risk of having retained placenta again wasn't significant and to try not to worry. The consultant also mentioned about previous low birth weight, I had been told at the time that there were not really any concerns about Eloise's weight but apparently not. Anyway, they decided to measure my bump which had not long been measure by my community midwife who found it to be slightly on the small side but I was small anyway so she wasn't concerned. Turns out I was measuring nearly 6 weeks behind and this is where the fun started. From now on I would practically live at the hospital.


Shortly after my 20 week scan Eloise came down with a really bad virus which after being blue lighted to hospital in an ambulance was eventually diagnosed as measles. I had to have two blood tests to check if I was immune. Normally you'd only need the one blood test to determine this but naturally the first was inconclusive so I had to have it done again. Eventually, after being quarantined for nearly 2 weeks, school getting pissy and battling with constant high temperatures, vomit, sore throats and coughs along with a saliva sample sent off to the Virus Reference Department it was found that Eloise didn't have measles at all and had been misdiagnosed.

Despite several fuck ups the second trimester was easier than the first in terms of pure terror. I remember hitting the 24 week milestone of viability and breathing a sigh of relief for all of 10 minutes. For me the second trimester was the calm before the storm.

AUTUMN LIPSTICK PICKS


As Autumn is well and truly in full swing I figured what better way to celebrate than with some beautiful autumnal lip colours! It's been rather a while since I've done anything beauty related and as this was what initially sparked my interest in blogging I thought it was abut time I went back to my roots and my little beauty and make up posts made a come back! 


Rimmel // One-Of-A-Kind

This is a bright creamy berry shade with a finish quite similar to MAC Cremesheens. This is the brightest of the lot with a lot more red than the others. I kind of hate the shape of the lipstick itself, it's one of the flat angled ones and I just find the shape really awkward to work with and I end up screwing it up massively.


Lime Crime Velvetine // Saint

This is a matte liquid lipstick with a beautiful deep mauve colour. It's got a hint of brown so a little bit different to my other very berry shades but I like the was it mixes it up a bit. The staying power of these is brilliant but make sure you apply a lip balm after you take your make up off. Matte lipsticks and cold weather are basically lip hell.

Topshop // Twin

I bought this a couple of years ago and it's been a favourite ever since. It's very glossy and transfers on everything but the shade is just beautiful. It a lovely deep plum colour but it's consistency is more like a heavily pigmented gloss rather than a lipstick. It's also incredibly hydrating which is a massive bonus for Autumnal weather. The only thing I don't like is that it has that annoying slanted tip which I suck at working with.

L-R Revlon Black Cherry, Lime Crime Polly, Lime Crime Saint, MAC Shy Girl, Topshop Twin, Rimmel One of a Kind

MAC // Shy Girl

Bit of a random one compared to the others but I love this shade by MAC. It's very 90s shimmery, orangey, nude which I feel works really well for Autumn on the days you don't feel like wearing a classic berry shade. It reminds me of pumpkins pie! I love the consistency of MAC lipsticks but the scent isn't my favourite. I prefer a lipstick to have no scent and sometimes the classic vanilla scent of MAC lipsticks is a little too sickly. Read my full review on this shade here.

Looking for more pocket friendly alternative to MAC? Check out my Shy Girl dupe here.

Revlon // Black Cherry

This is an absolute favourite of mine for Autumn and Winter. It's the most beautiful deep berry shade with just that bit of a gloss finish. I love Revlon lipsticks, I think they first red I ever owned was Revlon and has a classic bullet tip which makes for easy application. I think this is actually the darkest lipstick I own and I feel it makes me look a bit vampy any time other than Autumn/Winter but I love it all the same.

Lime Crime Velvetine // Polly

I reviewed this one not long ago and it's my new favourite. The consistency of Velvetines is wonderful to work with after you get the hang of working with something so wet. The doe foot applicator is perfect for getting a good shape around your lips without needing a liner. You can read my full review of this shade here.

WHAT MY TODDLER ATE TUESDAY [17/10/17]

BREAKFAST


// Boiled Egg & Wholemeal Soldiers

This breakfast was requested by Eloise who loves eggs. Lily on the other hand still isn't sure. I've only given her boiled egg a few times so there is time for her to decide she likes them but at the moment they get poked around quite a bit and only minimal bits actually get as far as her mouth. 

LUNCH


// Shredded Hoisin Duck Wrap

I bloody love this stuff. It's not real meat, I've never actually had actual duck so can't comment on it's likeness but it's bloody nice. Lily likes it and even Ben the vegetarian food hater liked it. They also do a shredded chicken version which is nice too! I add all sorts of different flavours to that one like, tikka masala, BBQ, basically any random spices you like. 


DINNER


// Rainbow Cauliflower Cheese

I picked up some yellow sticker rainbow cauliflower from M&S because I am a sucker for anything rainbow and I have never seen a vegetable as beautiful. I wouldn't say it was particularly a rainbow, they were purple and yellow but it made for a fun dinner. Anything with cheese is a winner in this house, especially with Lily. 

Lily does also have a snack which usually consists of baby crisps, raisins, fresh or dried fruit, yoghurts, that kind of thing although since she's had this cold she's been very picky over everything. She's also cutting 4 teeth so that probably contributes to the fussiness too. I always forget to photograph her snacks, normally because she's hangry haha. I will try and remember next week!

Catch up on last weeks What My Toddler Ate Tuesday post here.

REVIEW // LUSH BEWITCHED


The main reason I bought this little cat is because it shares the same scent as the discontinued Blackberry Bath Bomb?! I absolutely bloody adored the scent so when I found out about this I was pretty damn excited. Not only that, but it is also cat shaped which makes it an instant winner anyway. Although I felt pretty mean breaking off an ear.

This little cat transforms your bath water into an eerie abyss. Much like my soul. I'd have liked a bit more of sparkle but we can't have it all. I think if you used the entire thing you'd be able to see the shimmer but with the bit I used I couldn't tell.


The scent is amazing, very unisex I'd say with its fruitiness and woodiness in equal measure. I find bubble bars the best value for money in Lush. You can get a good 4 baths out of most bubble bars if you want to be as tight as I am. Or you could chuck the entire thing in but unless you have a huge bath the bubbles are going to overflow like mad! I used an ear and the bubbles were nearly overflowing, I love bubble bars for this reason. So. Many. Bubbles.

As always, the water and bubbles are so creamy and moisturising although I'd buy this for the scent alone. Now they just need to do something with the Space Girl scent *hint hint*.

Have a look at my other Lush reviews here.

BABY AND PREGNANCY LOSS AWARENESS DAY 2017


I should have a nearly 3 year old right now and Lily shouldn't exist.

It head fucks me massively to look at it like that but it's true. I obviously love Lily with my whole heart and wouldn't change anything but the thought can't help but creep into my head at the lonely hour of 2am.

They shared the same due date. Exactly a year apart, so technically speaking they could both have existed but in reality I wouldn't have even thought of getting pregnant again that quickly. I even found out I was pregnant with them both on the same date, announced it on the same date. Too much to be a coincidence, right? I found that very comforting at the time, I felt like my angel was there. That they made it happen.

I've spent a long time trying to figure out what to say in this post and whether to post it at all. I have left this to the absolute last minute to write because I've been flitting between not posting today at all or just posting a random draft and neither felt right. Today felt like it needed a post that wasn't some random review or Halloween post. Today needed to be about the baby I lost.

Having said that, I feel like whatever I write here won't be good enough. I feel like no words are right. No words are good enough. I feel like nothing I write will come across how I want it to because translations of the heart are difficult at the best of times and I think a lot of us who has lost babies feel the same. The feelings are there but the words don't do them justice.



They say that a person dies twice; once when their heart stops and once when their name is said for the last time. My baby didn't have a name so what does that mean for them? Should I have named them? At the time I had people brushing my loss off as if it was nothing. I was made to feel weak and pathetic for letting it affect me. I never grieved properly because no one else seemed bothered, I couldn't share my grief with anyone because no one else seemed to care. I was offered no kind of grief counselling despite having a breakdown to the extent it was contemplated late one night whether the best option for me would be to just section myself.

3 years later and I still haven't had any grief counselling despite mentioning how this still affects me to countless mental health care professionals. When I first wrote about loss on my blog I wrote a short paragraph simply stating facts and said:


That was over 3 years ago now and I was so afraid that people would just forget. And they did. I'm the only one who actively remembers, who speaks about them. The grief is still there, not as raw now although certain dates open up the wounds but they're healing now. As time goes on, the grief will tap you gently on the shoulder rather than scream into your ribcage, and wounds will begin to heal but grief is as strong as love and is something that will always be a part of you. 

No matter what we do, there will always be a hole where the babies we lost should be.


I bought myself a birthstone ring in secret before the miscarriage ended completely. I still don't wear it. I'm too afraid of losing that too. It sounds so stupid written down but I couldn't bear losing the only thing I feel connects me to when I was carrying my baby.



Over the past few years I've found ways to help me cope. I ended up painting my tiny bump photo with my battered old watercolours and framing it on my wall, it now hangs pride of place in my living room.

I have done these paintings for other people too. I think sometimes it helps when pregnancy tests and blurry bump photos are all you've got to remember your baby. I don't charge for these, I just stumble across women and offer. If you have lost a baby and would like me to paint an illustration of your bump or pregnancy test, please get in touch. 

I find I also crochet hats for neonatal units and volunteer for the Octopus For A Preemie project although I've not been able to donate much lately because my wrist has been buggered.

I find doing things like this has helped me deal with the grief a little and I feel as if I'm doing something, I'm doing it in the memory of my angel whilst helping others.



Every year on 15th October, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, I light a candle in memory of my angels as part of the Wave Of Light

The Wave Of Light is where people, all over the world, light a candle at 7pm their time for one hour which creates a full day of flickering lights over the entire world. These lights may be small, but they are there. Just like our babies.

THE AUTUMN TAG!


Thank you to the beautiful Amy,  Caitylis and Eileen for the tag! I bloody love Autumn and all the wonderful cosy bits and bobs although so far the only things I've got so far this Autumn is a Pumpkin Spiced candle from B&M (which you can read about here) and sinusitis. I have been ill for an entire month now and yeh, it's not fun. Anyway, enough moping, on with the tag!

THE AUTUMN TAG



1.) What is your favourite Autumnal lip colour?

Hard one already, I love berry shades for Autumn, my two favourites at the moment are Lime Crime Polly and Topshop Twin. 


2.) What is your favourite Autumnal nail colour?

I love muted purples, greys and deep reds for Autumn, I'm wearing Barry M Lap Of Honour right now which is a muted purple. 

3.) Favourite Autumn Starbucks/costa drink?

Pumpkin Spiced Latte. Obviously. I do love the praline one Costa do but I've not been to Costa yet this Autumn so I've got to say Starbucks haven't I. Although saying that, I think the drink I'm thinking of is actually part of their Christmas menu...Basically, I love coffee that doesn't taste much like coffee, give me a latte and I'm good. Cappuccino and Mochas are my limit. 

4.) Favourite Autumn Candle?

I currently have no sense of smell thanks to 10 day long (and counting) sinusitis but I have some Mrs Clauses Cookies wax brittle from Emily Makes Boutique, which okay, it's technically a Christmas scent but I love it so much! Lots of vanilla, cinnamon goodness going on there and it looks good enough to eat too!

5.) Favourite Autumn Accessory

Fashion accessory – Leather Ankle boots are my staple for Autumn along with thick socks , vintage jumpers and turtlenecks.

Home accessory – I haven't actually kitted the house out yet but I'm feeling the autumn leaf garlands and fancy pumpkins. Ben bought me the most beautiful autumnal flowers the other day, I love deep reds and yellows flower wise for this time of year. 


6.) Haunted House or Scary Maze?

I went to Terror Towers in Scarborough when I was about 10 and just fuck no to doing that ever again!

7.) Favourite Halloween Movie?

You know, I don't actually have a clue. I do love a horror film, although not if I have to sleep alone because I am tragically whimpy. Insidious fucked me up the most though so I'm going to say that. 

**tip toeee through the windooooow** - fuck that shit sideways!

28 Days Later was my favourite back in college but it was also a film I used in an assignment where I had to analyse it, and after nit picking it for a week and then having to write a thousand odd words...it was never the same.

8.) Favourite Halloween Sweets?

 I'm actually more of a crisp person but Halloween time means Mop time where I live so it's fresh doughnuts, honeycomb and candyfloss. 

9.) What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

A zombie so I don't need to worry about a costume.

10.) What’s your favourite thing about Autumn?

Pretty much everything (minus the germs). I love the crunchy leaves, the cooler temperatures, the dark nights (until SAD sets in), and cosy blankets. I love the smells, cute baby clothes. Basically everything.
