FINDING MY PASSION

Now you may know me as Lauren from TV and in the press, but my career background is in beauty. A couple of years ago I was doing a micro-blading eyebrows course and they said to me, “Why don’t you do aesthetics?” So I did a course there in Essex and then a bigger course in Manchester, where they train doctors and nurses. I got really good and confident at it, then lockdown happened and then I got pregnant and stopped doing it.

So, a girl that I know said, “Why don’t you come in my salon and do an odd day here and there now things have opened up again?” Me being an absolute lunatic I’ve decided to get back into doing fillers while I’m 31 weeks pregnant. I’ve set up a booking system and then I did another course this week to learn more about it. I’ve had quite a few clients already and I'm enjoying it. I must be mad, ha.

BUSY BEE

I had a midwife appointment this week and the baby has stopped growing a tiny bit, which sounds scary, but completely normal around this stage. And her growth will speed up as the weeks go on, but my little girl is bang on the middle of a normal weight at the moment. The midwife asked me what I’ve been up to and I told her about re-starting my aesthetics business and she said this is the time where I should be slowing down and not taking on something new. She told me to rest as much as I can and sleep as much as I can, but I’m going to see how I go after doing a couple of days here and there. It’s not like I’ve got my own shop where I’m committed to being there everyday. I've got so much going on in my brain, with the house and working, but in my next appointment with the midwife I have to come up with my birthing plan. Eek!

BABY BOOM

It was lovely to see Louise Thompson announce her pregnancy this week. And also Naomi Campbell revealed she’s become a mother at the age of 50. I absolutely love that. It just shows there’s no rush and you can be a mum at any age. We all have hope! Congratulations to them both – I'm so happy for them. There's a real baby boom at the moment – I think it's the lockdown.

BARING ALL

I’m going to be doing a bare bump photoshoot next week, which I’m really excited about. I’ve been wanting to do something super glamourous like this for ages and I've had a facial, my hair, nails and eyelashes done so I feel the best I can for it.

It will be lovely to keep the photos and I'm planning to get some canvases sorted that I can put up around the new house. I've got quite a neat bump, so I'm sure they'll look amazing!
