  • I never tried pampering in the bath, Im scared I might slip or something. But watching this vid is kinda tempting. Im on my 32 weeks now

  • I do the cucumbers in my drinking water almost daily. I will be putting them in my bath next. I have to get that steam oil machine.

  • I know this is a older video but I just did a pamper routine and I’m 38 weeks pregnant and it’s feels so good. I love being relax and we almost did the same thing❤��

  • I have a saying that I go by. It says “Rather a Little than Light” meaning that it is better to have a small glass of regular Cola than a large glass of Cola Light. Or a small proper cupcake than a lot of some wired diet cake.:-D

    Thanks for reading all this research.
