38 Week Bump

38 Week Pregnant Style | The Fresh Exchange

The other day I looked on the app I use to track progress and so on and it told me I had 16 days till my due date. 16 days!!! What?!

More Than Ordinary: Natural Deodorants

More Than Ordinary: Natural Deodorants | The Fresh Exchange

image via CM Studio Over the last couple of years, we have slowly been replacing our traditional body care products with as many all natural products as possible. Deodorant has probably been the most difficult skin care product to go natural with. We aren’t ready to go completely without deodorant yet, that is still too natural for us.
