If you’re pregnant and on social media like myself it is very easy to get sucked into the many different fads for newborns and babies. I will admit it is rather difficult finding gender neutral colours for baby stuff unless you find yourself in the worm hole of instagram. Because the certain colours of burnt orange, sage green, mustard yellow ect.. are not your everyday baby colours you’d pick up in the store on main, the prices of these different coloured baby items are extremely unaffordable for the average low income family. So I went hunting and usually my first place I like to hunt for affordable alternatives is aliexpress.com . After a while of searching, what do you know.. the same ones pop up on the menu. And i’m not just talking similar ones, i’m talking the exact same ones.
Now, keep in mind that a lot of these “instagram stores” don’t actually make their own products they just find trendy items and mark them up the arse which i’m not complaining about. Cause girl, do yo thang. This babe loves a hustler. Get your hustle on. But keep in mind there are other options and mostly likely the same options for a fraction of the price.
So today i’m sharing these 70% Bamboo Fiber / 30% Muslin Cotton Swaddles. These are super beautiful and extremely soft to the touch. I am in love with the colours and will definitely be ordering a few more. I started off with just ordering 2 unless they really weren’t what I was looking for (which hell yes, they were exactly what I was hoping for! if not better!). These are $9.53 a piece so was under $20 for the 2 of them. These come in 8 different solid colours from this specific item and the shipping cost if free 😉
Today marks my 26th week of pregnancy. Feeling good! Really enjoying the spring time and all it’s glory. About to make some tasty banana bread with oat flour.. so i’ll let you know how that turns out. I have mad ripe bananas in my fridge that my friend dropped off after her dad bought a mound of banana’s (couldn’t help a good deal, which I can get down with). Possibly going to make more than one loaf depending how it turns out!
So this weeks pregnancy update is that the baby can supposedly hear our voices now when we conversate with each other. He is inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for his lung development & is good practice for when he takes his first gulp of air. 🙂 & from what I have read, the baby is supposedly around the size of a cauliflower.
In love with the lupins on our property! There are a few different colours right now but I thought I would just make an appreciation post for each. Loving the purple & white as it is so angelic and delicate! The lupins are giving a real nice pop of colour throughout our overgrown yard.
Ooh the lilacs are just so lovely aren’t they? We have 3 huge bushes on our property and I couldn’t be more thrilled to make some spring bouquets! As the lilacs are in full bloom, so are my allergies… The beauty of our lush yard weighs out the crazy allergy attacks any day though.
