Project 10 Pan 2018

Hi Guys!

I’m now 39 weeks pregnant and finally starting to move back into my house.  Unfortunately, this means lots of organizing and decluttering while completely exhausted.

My husband has discovered that I have way too much makeup, so I’m really trying to cut back. One thing I thought might be fun to do is a project 10 pan. This is where you focus on using
10 items from your collection until they are completely gone.

Here are the items I’m going to try and finish in 2018:

Marc Jacobs Gel FoundationColourpop Eyeshadow in Awake Urban Decay Corrector in PeachStila All Day Liquid Liner in BlackAnastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium BrownUrban Decay HighlighterBecca Cosmetics Cream BlushLaura Mercier Translucent Setting PowderMac Pressed Powder in MediumYSL Lipstick in #13

My Maternity Closet

I was hesitant to stock up on a bunch of maternity wear because these items will only be needed for a short period of time. Luckily, my friend gave me a bag of clothes she used when she was pregnant and my mother-in-law sent me clothes for Christmas. 

Because of their generosity, I actually didn't need to purchase too much myself.  I ended up buying two dresses, a couple of bras, and some underwear:
Everly Grey Wrap Maternity Nursing Dress in Auburn (Regular Price $70 at Nordstrom, Purchased for $27 at Nordstrom Rack)Maternity Knit Kimono Sleeve Dress in Black by Ingrid & Isabel ($28 at Target)Intimate Portal Women's Under The Bump Maternity Pregnancy Underwear (3 pack for $16 at Amazon.com)A couple of larger bras I purchased in Hawaii.

Baths - One of the BEST things in the world have been baths!  Over the past few weeks, my baby bump has become enormous!  The weight is putting a ton of pressure on my pelvic area, which can cause me so much pain that it's sometimes difficult to walk.  Floating in water helps relieve some of the pressure. 

Unfortunately, my house is currently under construction and we don't have the bath tub installed yet.  This means, baths have been far and few between for me (when I go to my parents' house or to a hotel). The InterContinental  - The Clement Monterey - Speaking of hotels, my husband and I took a vacation to Monterey/Carmel-by-the-Sea, California while our house was being worked on.  We stayed at the InterContinental in downtown Monterey and had the greatest experience e…
