My Thoughts on Pregnancy

I've received a lot of questions lately on my pregnancy. The truth is every pregnancy is different. What one woman might experience another may not. I've heard some women who have had great pregnancies... and some not so much. Some have had severe morning sickness and some are so lucky they don't feel anything at all. I wouldn't judge any one pregnancy if you are trying to conceive - don't let anyone's stories scare you as yours will be completely different.

For those who know me, this is my first pregnancy and I've been pretty fortunate to have a pretty good one. I had the typical morning sickness and nausea during the first three months. I couldn't even head out the house without wanting to throw up. Oh the joys. I couldn't even enjoy the food my hubby cooked for my birthday this year. I was lucky enough to get lots of rest and sleep in all day. Thankfully that part is over!

I guess its true what they say.... the second trimester is the best. I had my energy back and I was able to finally eat again (yay!). I got up early everyday with no issues, I slept pretty decently, and I was able to do almost anything. I felt pretty good during this time.

I was finally able to eat anything I wanted to without feeling horrible after. I wish I had cravings like what you see on TV... I guess the best cravings I have are anything sweet or salty (and I am so not a salty person). Even though I'd indulge in lots of deserts, I still ate healthy. So... I had a good balanced diet :)

Now I'm into my third trimester and I have to say I am thankfully still full of energy - most days anyways. Notas much as I'd like these days but I'll take what I can get for now. During this time I am trying to rest as much as possible and stay stress free. Believe me when I say I rest whenever I can. The resting part is a bit hard to do since its getting harder to sleep. No matter what position I get into I just can't get comfy! Sadly the lack of sleep is hard to avoid but I'm hopeful I will get some rest soon! We won't even get to the amount of times I go to the restroom - day and night. I'll leave it at that!

I won't lie... I have been pretty tiny most of my life. Now at this stage it is hard to see myself gain almost 30 pounds and I still have two months left. But I have to remind myself that it's all good and it's all for my baby growing inside me. The hardest part so far was getting dressed for my friends wedding just a week ago. I tried on so many dresses and nothing fit. I am the type of person who never tries anything on. The process was frustrating I almost cried. But I didn't. I found something decent enough and being visibly pregnant, I think it didn't matter as long as I looked "ok". Thankfully, I don't have any other functions to go to for the rest of this year!

This experience has brought me complete happiness. To see my husband look at me and look at his growing baby brings me so much joy that I can't even express. I get bigger on a daily basis and this baby boy is moving like crazy! We cannot wait for our little guy to come into this world!

The benefit of hiring a professional Makeup Artist

  The benefit of hiring a professional Makeup Artist

Getting your makeup done on your wedding day - is more than "just getting your makeup done".

Many women know how to do their makeup on a regular day-to-day basis. Ask yourself... after spending so much time and effort into planning your perfect day... when you look back on your professional photography pictures, do you want to look like your everyday or would you prefer to look like the bride you always dreamt of being?  You have already invested so much in your décor, venue... your dress - not to mention your photography. Don't skimp out on having the added luxury of being pampered and having your look last all day and a lifetime in your pictures. Remember, you are worth it.

There are so many reasons to hire makeup artist for your wedding day. Not only will you receive professional advice on how to stand out during your wedding day - you'll receive a flawless complexion which lasts all day and photographs beautifully throughout your busy - and memorable day.

Here are my reasons why you should hire a makeup artist and hair stylist for your big day:

Did someone say stress free? When you hire a professional - you can rest assured that you will be stress free on your wedding day. Be sure to hire someone with a written contract. This ensures the terms are clearly laid out and everyone is in agreement for what needs to happen for your wedding.  You have already worked so hard to make your wedding dreams come true - allow someone else to pamper you before you walk down the aisle. Be sure to book your #makeuptrial before your wedding day to ensure you get the look you want and your #makeupartist can make adjustments where needed. Enjoy the relaxing feeling of having someone come to you on your wedding day without having the hassle of rushing on the most important day of your life.


High end QUALITY makeup: A professional makeupartist carries quality makeup which is designed to last all day long. I have had many brides who don't even wear foundation and many don't want to invest in that $50 foundation which helps to give you that flawless look in your #professionalpictures. Hiring a makeup artist will allow you to have full access to #qualitymakeup and achieve that #flawless application without you breaking your budget for something you may vey well never use again on your own.

Remember, every artist has a different style. Be sure to look around and find someone who closely matches your own style. I don't believe makeup should ever change a person where you don't recognize yourself. Every woman is beautiful and makeup should simply enhance your natural beauty.

When you hire Beauty by Sacha for your weddingday - you will receive friendly customer service, someone who is fun loving and easy to get along with. I take the time to create a full schedule for my brides so that this way you don't need to worry about doing this on your own or worry about what time you need to start or if you and your wedding party will be ready on time. Rest assured for large parties #glambeautybysacha will have a team of #professionalmakeupartists and #professionalhairstylists to help you get #glammed for your wedding day on time.
