For Two Fitness: My Attempt To Naturally Induce Labor

Disclaimer: Thank you For Two Fitness® for sending me a tank to review.

I talked about my hopes of having my baby before his due date in my last pregnancy update and even then, I thought I would at least have him on his due date. Again, I was wrong. I’m currently overdue at 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I’ve being trying everything to naturally induce labor.

From having intercourse to eating pineapples and even taking evening primrose, I’ve done everything the doctor suggested. The only thing that seems to make any difference in the way I feel physically has been exercising.

I can vividly remember the first ballet class I ever took. I was in the 5th grade and like most little girls, I’d been anticipating joining a dance class for the longest.

Countdown To Baby: Pregnancy Update (38-39 Weeks)

This post was totally supposed to be a video but I’m barely able to get anything done these days – the exhaustion is back (but we’ll get into that later) and I didn’t have many views on my last video update so I figured you all wouldn’t mind anyway.

I took a week (or maybe two) off from my blog and email with limited social media access because I just knew my baby would arrive early. Well, I didn’t know for sure, I was hoping he would. After listening to the predictions of my family and those closest to me, I’d had it in my head that he would come into the world at 37 1/2 weeks but…nah.

(VIDEO) Product Review + Demo: Laura Mercier Medium Deep Translucent Powder

Disclosure: I received this product for free from Influenster to test and share with you. All opinions expressed are my own.

Laura Mercier Cosmetics recently released a new version of their translucent powder in a medium deep shade specifically for medium deep to dark skin tones. Honestly I don’t follow makeup brands much but as and when I was notified that I’d be trying this product out, I was excited.

I’ve tried several different translucent powders and I always have the same problem from all of them – I look like a ghost under the eyes and wherever else I apply the product.

Not cool.

3 Ways To Build Enough Confidence To Wear A Wig

This post has been sponsored. All opinions are my own.

One of my favorite things about being a woman is having the ability to switch up my look whenever and however I want. I can go from long to short hair in seconds, I can test out a new color without risking any damage to my hair and I can easily transform from bouncy curls to sleek strands with the slip of a wig.

Even though wigs are as popular now as they were back in the day, some women still shy away from wearing them.
