FOUR OF MY FAVOURITE PINTEREST MAKE UP LOOKS

Image
I've been loving Pinterest lately and it has been my go-to for all my style, home and make up inspiration. There's literally any and every thing on Pinterest  and it's a great place to get ideas for whatever it is you need inspiration for. To be honest, I only recently got on Pinterest and already I've got like 25 different boards that I keep adding images, funny and motivational quotes to; so if you want to check out or follow any of my boards, I just go by "Uche" and it's also a great place to go if you are just looking to find motivation and re-assurance for whatever you may be going through. It's awesome!!

THINGS I KNOW NOW IN MY 30S I WISH I KNEW IN MY 20S

It's funny how we think we know everything in our 20s or how we believe we have all the answers and know exactly how our lives are going to turn out. It's not until we get into our 30s and have to start "adulting" that we begin to realize how very little we knew or frankly that we knew nothing at all. All the things that seemed so important suddenly hold little to no meaning/significance for us in our 30s. There are so many things I'm sure we all wish we knew when we were younger now that we're older and I can't help thinking that if perhaps we were aware of some of these things, we would not have wasted so much of our time on them or maybe we would have paid a bit more attention.

THE CVS OPTION FOR COUPLES WITH SICKLE CELL TRAIT

Image
  Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) is a method of prenatal diagnosis that tests directly for genetic conditions in the fetus. A small sample of cells is taken from the placenta where it attaches to the wall of the uterus and tested to help identify chromosomal problems like Down Syndrome or other genetic diseases like Sickle Cell disease amongst others. Pregnant women can get this test 5-10 weeks earlier than the Amniocentesis test (this tests the amniotic fluid that surrounds and protects the fetus inside your uterus for certain birth defects).
