For Adonai is a great God,
a great king greater than all gods.
He holds the depths of the earth in his hands;
the mountain peaks too belong to him.
The sea is his — he made it —
and his hands shaped the dry land.

Best moment this week? Mini Smith turned 6 months yesterday only 3 months to go, and the end of work is in sight have both been a highlight of the week! Oh and how can I forget that my birthing ball is pumped up and I have been bouncing around on it – way more comfier than the sofa!Miss anything? I miss sleeping on my stomach, I miss being able to bend down and pick up things properly and I miss cute clothes!!
Movement? A big YES! Mini smith is kicking up a storm.
Morning sickness? nopeGender? I still think Mini Smith is a boy and Luke is still non committal 13 weeks till we find out.
Looking forward to .. Maternity Leave!!!!
Every month I harass my husband with yet another package being delivered to our house. He does suffer, but thankfully he loves me so doesn’t protest too much!
I was so excited that Birchbox had come to the UK after reading so many American bloggers writing about how good it was I wanted my hands on them too!
A brief overview of the box you can subscribe for one month, three or up to a year. You fill a brief questionnaire where they collect the data to send out suitable items for you, questions such as skin tone, hair colour etc. The method isn’t full proof – I am pasty pale and they have sent foundation samples to me that suit my medium skin-toned step mum, but you have to take the rough with the smooth. You get about 5 samples a month and its a good way to try things you don’t want to buy the full size of or products you cant get in the UK.
This box is a winner for me simply for the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer at £27 for full size this is expensive for a hair treatment that I have never tried before. The product was originally designed for Audrey Hepburn who wanted a product that would repair and nourish her frequently coloured hair. I am saving this for after mini smith has arrived.
Gerda Spillmann Hydro Pearls – a smoothing primer
Laqa & Co Lip Pencil – a moisturising lip pencil mine was in the colour Ring of Fire
Molton Brown – Ylang Ylang Body Wash
Inner Me – supplements that are packed with omega 3 and protein – This is the one item that will be going straight in the bin. I am taking enough supplements thank you.
Birchbox gel mask – this is going straight in the fridge to cool my tired and puffy eyes.
