Endometriosis pregnancy fertility

My fertility journey

I’ve been wanting to write about this for a long time but since infertility is such a personal topic I’ve kept quiet. However since we made it public a few months ago that we’re expecting I’ve been wanting to write and share my own story/fertility journey as well. So, no, I’m definitely not infertile but after years of trying I did begin to wonder… When on 2016 Christmas Day morning I presented my husband with a positive pregnancy test I was dumbfounded. Not ecstatic as I would have expected but in complete denial, I just couldn’t believe it had actually happened to us!

Pregnancy cravings – the weird and wonderful!

The cravings have actually been on a relatively normal side for me. Luckily I’ve had no sickness, just mild nausea in the evenings, and a significant drop in appetite overall. I’ve never been a big eater and prefer small meals but now, while being pregnant, I find it really difficult to finish my dinners. My husband finishes them for me and he’s probably growing with me too! ๐Ÿ™ Continue reading

Review – Lumene Skincare

I had a layover in Helsinki on my way back from my recent trip to Estonia and had time to do some airport shopping. Finnair flight magazine had an article about Lumene‘s rebranding story, how they wanted to strengthen the image on a global scale as well as within its native market of Finland. As the products are also on sale in Estonia I’m quite familiar with them so I definitely wanted to be able to take a peek at the new range and design. I ended up buying these two from their Invisible Illumination range:

Innocently Sweet – vegan dessert recipe book

I’m proud that a friend of mine, Chantal, has written this book because like most people (probably like you too), she loves desserts! ๐Ÿ™‚ But it was driving her crazy that desserts always had to be naughty! So she wrote it with some educational material to begin with and included 34 amazing vegan recipes that are every spoonful nourishing and not at all guilty! Isn’t it great when you can have a treat that is not followed but a guilt trip down weight gain lane?

I’m also delighted to mention that some of the photos used in this book are taken by my husband Marc Mordant Photography. Continue reading

My autumnal styleย 

Autumn leaves come falling down
Red, orange, yellow,
Brown
Down, down down
๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‚

I’ve been enjoying autumn this year because it’s been a very mild one. Back in September we had a heatwave when the temperatures reached low 30s (I remember that week clearly because I was so ill with a cold. My husband did a fine job looking after me but what with being an adult, life goes on and things need doing, all I really wanted was being a kid and having my mum or dad nurse me back to normal) and October has been impressively sunny and warm too. Finally, when the nighttime temperatures started hitting below double figures, I realised I could do with more layers on me. ย My winter clothes tend to be black but my autumns are brown. So here I am with one of my favourite outfits going for a Sunday walk. ๐Ÿ‘œ ๐Ÿ•ถ Continue reading
