August in Instagram


Another month, another Instagram update. I've done these for a number of years now. I love having a quick look back on the month and to kinda just say, hey I'm still here! Instagram is painful at the moment, an app I once loved is now incredibly difficult to grow and I'm fast falling out of love with it so, if you're not following, just search alicespake or click the icon on the right. Stupidly, it would mean more than you realise...

  • August has been a relatively quiet month while I'm cooking the baby but it's still been dominated by a lot of watermelon and I'm still obsessed with these from Bills! I haven't found a watermelon drink good enough to keep at home yet!
  • Everyone went mad for Lush's pot of Sleepy and as I love a hype I bought a pot for myself, I'm undecided on it at the moment, it smells amazing but why must they put glitter in everything! 
  • Arran and I have been making the most of our evenings with regular date nights before the big day. We absolutely loved Kupp! 
  • I went for afternoon tea with my oldest friend who is also pregnant and just two weeks ahead of me. We spent the afternoon eating yummy sandwiches and cake, talking babies and pain relief! Oh how times have changed. 
  • My blogging besties bought me the ultimate treat for my baby shower, a pregnancy massage! I headed to The Ocean Rooms for a blissful hour of relaxation which I could very much get used to. 
  • All the big baby bits are here and we've started to get the room together which is so exciting and a bit terrifying because we actually have to look after a tiny human. Cute penguin though right?!
  • I shared my antenatal care frustration on this post of my bump and I was met with so much love and support. It really, really helped at a time where I wasn't feeling that great at all. 
  • We have six weeks to go, well five when this goes live. FIVE WEEKS! ARGH! EEK!
  • Coffee, I don't even need to explain, it's pretty fab after all!

  1. Such a beautiful Instagram feed. I found those last weeks of pregnancy seemed to go by really slowly. I'm glad you are enjoying date nights, they certainly aren't as common in those newborn days.

  2. I love your insta feed! We got the lush sleepy too and have tried it out, doesn't seem to do much difference but i like the smell, lavender is brilliant for anxiety so i've used it a lot!

  4. I didn't realise that the Lush Sleepy lotion had glitter in it! That's put me off now haha! Instagram used to be my all time favourite social platform but now I feel lost in it!

  8. Uh, I'm in love with your Instagram feed! I would definitely follow IF I had Instagram...which I do not haha. Cutest baby bump EVER! That makes me miss mine so, so, so much. Take ALL the photos. I took one every couple of days, but I wish I took more (nice ones, you know). I'm obsessed with Lush, so I would have been keen to try Sleepy, but I'm all 'noooo' about glitter! Ick.

  10. Sleepy Body Lotion is the best! I haven't noticed glitter in mine though... my pot is ones I stocked up with from Christmas, so maybe it's something with the re-release?!xo
