I love being pregnant. It’s the most magical process possible in this world. I am growing a human inside of me. I get to give life to a child. It’s remarkable. During the process, though, there are so many things that change like I’ve given up caffeine, alcohol, a number of foods that I love, and my body. I’ve experienced pregnancy changes so dramatic that it’s best not to give details and I could burst into tears at any moment. It’s important to recognize these changes and practice self-care to stay healthy, happy, and prepared. Self-care during pregnancy can be in the form of exercise and nutrition, connecting with family and friends, enjoying alone time, identifying what helps you feel happy, and getting in touch with your whirl-wind of emotions.
I recently noticed that I’ve let my physical personal care slide. None of my pre-pregnancy clothes fit so I’ve been wearing Cord’s clothes or jogging pants and a sweater. I rarely do anything with my hair other than tie it up in a bun or ponytail and I can’t tell you the last time I put on makeup. I decided it was time to treat myself. I purchased a few pregnancy essentials like pants, shirts, and undies and I found organic products to spruce up my appearance. Gone to Green Market is the perfect solution to my self-care needs. They offer organic clothing, as well as hair care, body care, and face care products.
I found a number of clothing pieces that will fit well during pregnancy and still work well for a few months after pregnancy. Th Midori Bamboo Inside Out Knit Top adds a twist to my pregnancy wardrobe. It feels soft against my skin and is made with eco-friendly bamboo. It’s designed to drape loosely so I will fit into it for the entire pregnancy and still be able to wear it after the baby is born.
Also, the Midori Bamboo Ella Wide Strap Dress has an ideal A-line with comfortable wide shoulder straps. It’s knee-length and features multiple layers of gathering and ruching on the front and back. I couldn’t ask for a better pregnancy fit. I can pair it with leggings or a sweater to wear it all year.
I also found the perfect gift box filled with the little pick-me-ups that I needed. The 2019 Christmas Gift Box comes with Everyday Minerals Finishing Dust, Mineral Fusion Eye Pencil, Honeybee Gardens Bellissima Volumizing Mascara, Everyday Minerals Lip Butter, and Beauty by Earth Konjac Facial Sponges. The Finishing Dust has silky translucent powders that perfectly sets your makeup to banish excess shine. The eye pencil has exceptionally rich mineral color that glides on smoothly to line, define, and enhance eyes. The mascara coats each lash in rich, sultry color for robust, healthy lashes with a featherweight feel. It won’t smudge, clump, or flake. The lip butter, which is my absolute favorite, is intensely moisturizing, gentle, and shiny without being sticky. The facial sponges scrub away dirt, oil, blackheads, and dead skin to leave your skin feeling bright, clean, and clear. It’s the perfect little box for clean beauty.
At Gone to Green Market, they believe in using natural products that are earth-friendly and safe enough for everyday use. The ingredients that are in their products are carefully selected to be free of dangerous chemicals and environmentally-unfriendly practices while ensuring labels are transparent and accessible so you can verify they meet your specifications. I can’t imagine a better fit for my self-care pregnancy needs.
