I am the ultimate budget shopper, I love a good bargain! This personality trait and my love for things is how I ended up finding out about AliExpress and shopping on the site a number of times. I usually get questions from readers of my blog and people who follow me on social media about the ins and outs of shopping on AliExpress, so I thought to write this post to let you guys know my experience and some tips. I am not saying that I’m the expert on AliExpress shopping, but I have been doing it for over 3 years now – so I have some insight.
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.
I finally became a mom on the 8th of March to a beautiful baby girl. As I write this, she is lying here next to me fighting the urge to fall asleep, lol! That’s one thing I am failing to understand about newborns – why fight the urge to sleep when you are sleepy??? sigh! Motherhood has been a massive learning curve, I only now (5 weeks later) feel like I am getting some sort of hang to it. However, just as I feel like I have figured her out, she switches it up on me and does the complete opposite and leaves me more confused than ever!
Hey boos, I mentioned in this post that I will be taking some time off blogging to take out to get acclimated to being a first time mom. I am currently heavily pregnant and ready to give birth any day now (who knows, I might have given birth by the time this post comes out 😀) and thus, my blogging break has started. I want to enjoy this time and take some time out to rest rather than thinking about writing posts. I won’t be gone forever though, I will be back soon! You can still interact with me on social media, my handle is @bylungi on all platforms.
Love, Lungi ❤️
This is my first Taking Stock for 2017 – like I always say, I love doing these posts because they sort of put a time stamp on my life. I can always look back and see what was happening and how I was feeling at a certain point in my life. This version of taking stock will be quite pregnancy heavy, because it is one of the biggest things that is happening in my life right now and it is dominating every aspect of my life as I get closer to my due date.
I don’t even know where to begin writing this post, I’ve had so many drafts that I have written and re-written and none of them seem ‘perfect’. My husband and I are expecting our first child 🙂 – I have been cooking this little one inside of me since last year. Pregnancy hasn’t been easy for me at all – I really didn’t know what to expect, but being sick all the time and not really feeling like myself was not what I expected, but it’s what I got. I have great respect for people who go through this multiple times; but maybe they are the lucky ones who have easy pregnancies. Even with all the downsides and bad symptoms I have experienced, I am very excited for this new adventure in our lives.
