Hi ladies!
I simply love these personal style bloggers, they inspire me with their looks, all awesome in their own ways. 
I will definitely share more in the future in other posts but for now here is a little update on my pregnancy: 
I am getting really close to my due date, two weeks or less and our baby boy will be here with us.
   We can hardly wait!!! For now I just have to deal with all the fun pre- labour signs that are increasing as the days go by. I've been having lots of sharp pains in my cervix, really strong leg cramps at night, regular trips to the washroom, baby already engaged " can definitely feel the pressure", Braxton hicks all the time specially at the end of the day and last but not least definitely not glowing at this point. LOL 
I am so ready to have this baby, our hospital bags are ready to go, his room is ready, now it's just a waiting game. 

Take care everyone!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you already know I love animals. 
The issue of animal rights is close to my heart, especially  the problem with animal testing in cosmetics. 
 It makes me really happy that more and more companies are becoming cruelty free, but I wish many more that I used to be a fan of would also stop testing on animals. 
 I wish there would be more famous/ big brands that would stop this cruel practice against animals. 
 Hopefully one day!!! 
Animals should all be treated with respect and not locked up in cages and have chemicals rubbed into their eyes or forced down their throats. 
Hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully with more posts like these I can make it easier for you all to buy cruelty free. I was for sure happy to find these great brands at Sephora. 

You are welcome to check out my other cruelty free posts in the beauty section. 
Here are just a few:

When in doubt of which products are cruelty free, you can always contact the company itself or visit these websites to find out which companies do and which don't test on animals. Animals don't deserve to suffer for our vanity and remember beauty is only beautiful when you are not hurting anyone :

DIY HOMEMADE AIR FRESHENER

Easy DIY today ladies and gentlemen. 
 Who doesn't want their home to smell amazing and fresh? I love to do this homemade air freshener, it's easy, quick, eco-friendly and best part is there are no chemicals involved. 
This is what I do: 
In a pot, I boil some orange peels with 2 cinnamon sticks, if you don't have the cinnamon sticks you can always add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I also like to add a little bit of lemon juice and rosemary leaves to the boiling water then turn it to medium heat. 
The steam fills the air in your home with a really pleasant scent.
Don't forget, next time you eat an orange don’t throw away those orange peels and try this easy diy! 
Et VoilĂ !
Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy DIY.
Take care everyone!

NEW IN, SWAROVSKI

Hello darlings, I know I am a little late, but I wanted to share with you my lovely Swarovski treats from my recent Birthday and Valentines. Hope everyone had fun on Valentine's Day. Ours was not that amazing for one simple reason, I spent Valentines night at the hospital with extreme nausea and vomiting. Yes again!!! How sexy was that?
It's ok, I am doing much better now. 
It's really in difficult times and when you go through certain situations that you really see who your real family and true friends are and the ones that really care. I am blessed and I appreciate every single day to have a husband that cares and that is so patient even when my patience is already reaching the limit, plus, let's just say he really knows how to spoil me, but let's put it this way I am a good wifey too. :)
Are you a fan of Swaroski pieces?

Take care my loves
Claudia
