Trendy Glass Water Bottles

Trendy Glass Water Bottles - Angela Jude

Drinking enough water daily is very important and one of those very well known facts. It helps maintain your body’s fluids, helps your skin look its best, and it aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion.

I know from personal experience that it can sometimes be challenging to drink enough water throughout the day. I’ve seen quite a few smartphone apps whose sole purpose is to help you drink more water so I don’t think I’m alone in my quest. I’ve found that simply having water available and visible improves my consumption.

Trouble Swallowing Prenatal Vitamins

Prenatal Vitamins - Angela Jude

This is my first pregnancy and I’m learning a lot of new things daily. One thing I didn’t expect was the amount of pills I’d need to consume daily.

Please keep in mind this is my personal experience and what I’m taking. This is in no way a recommendation about what you should or shouldn’t take. This is just the combination that I’m comfortable with and works for me!

Overly Excited About Maternity Jeans

After wearing a rotation of Victoria’s Secret ‘Most Loved Yoga Pants’ with the fold over waistband for the past four weeks I am over the moon to finally have some maternity pants. I never thought I’d be happy to have these but they match my pre-pregnancy wardrobe much better over the yoga pants.

The pair that I picked up today are the H&M MAMA Super Skinny pants. They’re full panel, meaning they have a wide and tall soft cotton panel that can fit over my growing belly. The pant material is soft and has some stretch to it and the belly panel is super comfy and stretchy.


H&M MAMA Super Skinny Jeans

A lot of my regular closet is filled with H&M clothing so I’m familiar with their sizing. If you’re new to H&M, keep in mind that they do not have vanity sizing. The measurements are true to size and you may need to purchase a different size number than you’re used to seeing. Luckily, their only size charts and measurements are pretty spot on. If possible, I recommend visiting your nearest H&M if possible. The store locator on their website even lets you see which stores carry their maternity line.

I got mine at the regular price of $34.99. If you keep an eye out online sometimes they go on sale. Regardless, these are a great buy at full price!
