Comments Off on Feet First into Summer

One part of me is craving the super hot days of summer and then the other part of me is wondering if that is going to lead to extra swollen pregnancy feet and being uncomfortable. The most common statement I think I have received this pregnancy is something along the lines of “Good luck making it through summer”.

This first few hot days I am not going to lie, they took me by surprised and I was feeling super exhausted. Since taking that into consideration and being more conscious about staying hydrated I have seen such a difference. Making the effort to do more walking and embracing the weather has also allowed me to feel more comfortable in the heat. Being pregnant in the summer shouldn’t be something that is feared or have warning labels stuck to it, but rather something to look forward to.

So instead of focusing on the heat and how it could possibly make me feel uncomfortable this summer I am going to look forward to the benefits of the heat. This summer I will have a solid month together with both of the kids giving them attention and exploring before baby makes her arrival. For all you pregnant Mommas out there this summer, don’t let the usual comments get you down, but instead focus on the benefits you get from being pregnant this summer and enjoy your time (whether the feet swell or not it won’t last forever).

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
