It’s time for another taking stock post, I love these because they give me a time stamp of my life at a particular time. This installment of the series will be filled with baby stuff because that is the main thing that is going on in my life. It’s a busy time for me right now – I am back at work and trying to figure out this working mom life; I am taking it one day at a time. Let’s check out what other things I have been doing lately.
Making time for myself, even if it is just a few minutes a day. Now that my schedule is so jam packed, some me-time daily is necessary for my sanity
Eating healthy foods, I need to reclaim my figure after the pregnancy and that is not going to happen by me still eating like I did when I was pregnant
Drinking proper cappuccinos, I had to switch to decaf while I was pregnant, now I’m back…yippeee
Reading Zandile the Resolute by Dudu Busani Dube – one of the books in the Hlomu series, I read it to my daughter as a bedtime story 🙂 – I know the book is available online but I bought it so that I can support black women authors.
Looking to makeover my wardwrobe and buy some staple, classic items. Which clothing items do you think one should have in their closet?
Playing a lot of Westlife music, their songs take me back to my young days, I loved boy bands
Wishing I could go overseas, I haven’t left the country in so long, I am getting cabin fever
Enjoying doing my makeup and getting dolled up during the week for work – this is one of the things that I missed while I was on maternity leave
Waiting for my Morphe Jaclyn Hill palette to get delivered! I have never been so excited about a makeup product in my life
Liking coordinating my daughter’s outfits and dressing her up in them, she looks super adorable
Wondering how one little person can bring so much joy into my life. I can’t imagine life without my baby girl, even on the hardest days she makes me smile
Loving how I am seeing improvements in my skin due to the fact that I have so consistent with my skincare routine, it has taken a few months but I am seeing results
Hoping my hair grows back after this hectic postpartum shedding. My hair is falling out so much, I am surprised that I still have hair left on my head
Marvelling at how I have been able to function with so little sleep – it has become my new superpower
Needing to buy a microwave for my place, I’ve been putting it off for so long (3 years to be exact) – with the electricity prices going up – I need appliances that are efficient
Smelling my daughter – I love the baby smell and I am always smelling her skin all the time!
Wearing my maternity clothes, most of them still fit and are sooo comfortable and I am here for comfort!
Noticing how when I walk into a clothing store, I immediately head to the baby section – I love checking out baby clothes
Knowing that my daughter is gaining weight just off drinking breastmilk makes me so happy. I love how I am her only source of nutrition
Feeling so grateful to have an awesome caregiver for my daughter, she makes my life so much easier and I love how she loves my child
Bookmarking bedroom/guest room decor ideas on Pinterest – I am obsessed with bedroom decor lately
Opening a whole lot of deliveries from my online shopping lately, I have been loving shopping online
