Helpful pregnancy apps + websites

A post about helpful pregnancy apps, websites, blogs and Instagram accounts
When we found out we were pregnant, typical of the Google obsessed generation we're in, the first thing I did was put everything I could think of into Google. "I'm pregnant, what do I need to do?", "How do I get a midwife?", "What can and can't I do now I'm pregnant?" are just a few of the dozens of questions I had whizzing around my head. Did it help? Hardly. There are hundreds and thousands of websites, blogs, forums and 'medical experts' floating around the Internet with conflicting advice, all it did was make me more confused (and leaving me with a few more questions unanswered, to boot!). 

It took a couple of weeks before I felt confident with the information I was getting, gathering a little list of incredibly helpful, informative and at times, unbelievably inspiring websites, apps and blogs. As a first time mum-to-be I know how confusing things can be, so I wanted to share these websites, apps and blogs with you, and hopefully they will be as helpful and reassuring to you as they have been to me.

Huge Lush Haul

I have been going more than a little Lush crazy recently, grabbing pampering bubble baths whenever I can and indulging in my box of Lush bath treats to the point where I really needed to make an order to replace some of the products I had used up (and try some new ones, too!).

The Sunday Post #40

August is here and I feel like 2015 is almost over already. Maybe that's my excitement for 2016, a little bit because I'm prematurely excited about Christmas, but mostly because I always feel like August is when England says it's last goodbye to the sunshine for another year as summer draws to a close.

Finished Reading | June + July 2015

As life has gotten a little hectic over the past few months and my priorities have been elsewhere, I've spent a lot less time reading and the rate I was going through books slowed right down! Whereas before I was getting through around 5 books a month, I've managed 3 books in the past two months. I decided not to share a 'Finished Reading' post at the end of June as I only managed to get through one book in June, so it seemed a little fruitless to write a post on just the one book - and if I'm honest, I was a little annoyed with myself that I had only read the one book!

1st Trimester | My experience

Sharing my experience of the 1st trimester as a first time mum-to-be.
A week ago today I shared the news that my partner and I are starting a family, expecting our very first baby on January 12th 2016. If you caught the post - When your life changes forever - you'll remember me saying I wanted to share weekly pregnancy posts, which after the baby is born will go into parenting posts. 

Of course, the beauty content here on Tattooed Tealady will remain the same and that will still be the predominant theme, but the lifestyle posts I share will take on a pregnancy theme! I want to make the weekly pregnancy posts interesting and a little different to the 'usual' pregnancy posts you might come across. To start things off, I'm going to share my experience of the 1st Trimester - because gosh, it was nothing like I expected at all!

This month's favourites | July 2015

This month has gone by crazy fast, although I always think July is pretty quick - probably because it's my favourite month of the year. Not only is July usually hot and sunny in the UK, but July is also my birthday month and this month was the dreaded 27! Makeup wise I had mostly makeup free days this month, which I put down to total laziness and just not wanting to put makeup on when I'm just at home all day. That said I have a bunch of favourites to share with you all that covers makeup, skincare, body care and a nail polish, which is a very new addition to my beauty stash!
