One of the not so joys of pregnancy is not being able to drink caffeine drinks or alcoholic ones.  There is only so much decaf tea and coffee I can drink, and water, well, water is rather boring after a while.

While I was looking through my cupboards looking for something else to drink, I came across these sachets that I had bought a while ago.  The plan was for me to have them with warm cider as an alternative to gluhwein as I am not the biggest fan.

I decided I would give them a go without the apple cider--although I am sure they would be absolutely delicious with it.  I tried the hot apple one first and it smelt amazing.  It smelt like autumn in a cup which I think is a win win.  It also tasted really good.  It was really nice and warming, although I would advise to use quite a big mug because I think if you didn't have enough water it could be rather strong and make you even more thirsty.

My favourite flavours are the hot apple and the hot maple.  On a rainy day, which we have had a fair few of later, they are perfect especially when curled up under a blanket with a good book or film.

So if you are looking for a tea or coffee alternative then you can find them here.  I actually bought mine from Rosie & Java, a family run tea and coffee merchant in Richmond.  If you are ever in the area and love tea and coffee I would really recommend popping in, the staff are so friendly and helpful.  Also it is the perfect place to pick up a few stocking fillers.

This week I managed to actually do my pregnancy update video and to be honest I am rather proud of myself because at one point I really didn't think it was going to happen, due to me being really lazy but hey it looked bleached but here it is:

If you can't watch the embedded version then you find it here

I looked back over all the videos the other day and realised I had only missed two weeks without a video, which I have to say I am pretty impressed with.  Ok so it isn't a perfect record but better than I thought it would be.

I am so happy I have something to remember this pregnancy by because you never know it might be my last.  

Anyway I hope you enjoy this video and have enjoyed watching this pregnancy journey.

Someone having their first sit on a bike {thanks Becky for taking this} // Much needed tea
I couldn't resist, it smells so good // When did she become so old?
Slides are so much fun I tell you {thanks for these photos Caris}
We are really into books at the moment, we could read them all day and often do
Sharing noodles with Daddy // Could these pjs be any cuter?

And that's that.

So I was in Space.N.K.apothecary browsing for foundations, and I got a few testers when I felt the need to buy a nude lipstick.

This is not as random as it sounds.  I did have a nude lipstick but it went on walkabout, thanks Ava!  And as I was there I thought I would ask for a recommendation and the By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge in Nudissimo was shown to me and I had to have it...after trying it of course.
Now it has to be said these lipsticks are not cheap and I am sure you could find a drugstore alternative for a fraction of the price but I felt like a splurge especially as I am not really buying anything else--the perk of being massively pregnant.  

This lipstick is referred to as a melt-in lipstick balm and that is a really good way of describing it.  It is very sheer and can be applied without a mirror and you don't have that worry about whether it has gone patchy after a drink.      

You can build the colour up but you know me I prefer the more natural look.  If you do want something that pops a lot more then this is probably not the product for you, but if you want something more for everyday that doesn't dry your lips out, is moisturising and smells divine, well give it a go.  
Nudissimo is a very nude slightly pink with a hint of gloss shade, as shown above.  I think it is the colour of my lips but better.  I like the slight glossiness it has and how it feels on the lips.  And I also love the fact I don't have to worry about lip liner which is always a plus as it means I can just chuck it into my handbag without a second thought.

It helps as well that I love the simple packaging that I think is really sleek, sophisticated and classic.

I don't know what else to say about it apart from go and smell it, and if you want a little treat well consider this little beauty.
