Kadria Skincare Belly Balm With Rosehip And Neroli

And now for something completely different....

A review of a Kadria Skincare’s Belly Balm. No, that’s not a book, it’s one of a range of natural products for pregnancy, mother and baby, which was sent to me to trial and review.

Let me first explain that, being 28 weeks into my second pregnancy, I come to this with a certain level of experience and dare I say cynicism.

First time around, I was keen to avoid stretch marks if at all possible, and invested in an expensive, lurid-coloured oil from a major beauty brand, touted by celebs as a wondrous elixir.

Have I got news for you......

Normally, it’s the little things I like to babble about. As regular readers of this blog will know, anecdotes about inconsequential episodes are usually the order of the day here at Book Club Mum. And of course book reviews.....although I’ve been woefully slack in that department recently and need to pull my socks up – new term, new start!

Anyway, it is something of a departure to have two rather serious things to tell you.

The first, and I think the accompanying photograph may have given this away somewhat, is that I’m pregnant, expecting my second child on December 4.

We’re absolutely over the moon here at Book Club Mum Towers, but I’ve been a little bit shy about blogging the news as, all things considered, I’m on the superstitious side of paranoid at the best of times. And we were certainly given cause to worry earlier this summer. Which brings me on to the second piece of pretty serious news I want to share with you.....
