Pregnancy | Achieving The Perfect Pelvic Floor


Pregnancy brings a whole host of changes to your body but one of the most significant changes happens in an area you can't see, your pelvic floor. The pregnancy hormone relaxin, alongside the increasing weight of your baby, puts pressure on your pelvic floor muscles. As a result, it can be more challenging for your muscles to hold your pelvic floor organs in their correct position. Those important organs include the bladder and bowel, explaining why a strong pelvic floor is so crucial to maintaining bladder and bowel control during and after your pregnancy. After all, no woman wants to worry about wetting herself every time she laughs, coughs, or sneezes!

Review | Carthusia Aria Di Capri

Carthusia's Aria Di Capri is a powdery floral scent that is truly timeless.

For those who don't know, Carthusia is undoubtedly one of the best and most perfume houses in Italy. The brand is located on the beautiful Italian island of Capri, and it draws inspiration from this location's rich history. The story goes that in 1948, the Carthusian Monastery discovered perfume formulas written by a 14th century local monk who had accidentally created Capri’s first fragrance from a bouquet of flowers he had gathered for Queen Giovanna d’Angio. Paying homage to this perfumed past, all Carthusia scents are made by hand, to guarantee the accurate application of the natural methods involved and the precious care of traditional craftsmanship. And this couldn't be more evident in Aria Di Capri.
