Smells, smells, smells.

Smells; it's all about smells. Some women crave food, I crave smells. Notably the following:

LUSH - Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter. Mr OJ often rolls his eyes at the frequency I am found with my nose in a tub of LF. At £6 for a 50g it's a bargain nail treatment which really does work to keep cuticles nourished and dry bits at bay. I use this most nights and revel in the lovely lemony/lavender scent.

Liz Earle Nourishing Botanical Body Cream. I adore the fresh and uplifting scents in the body range. From the shower gels to this rich and gorgeous body cream. Really good for bumps and all over feel good factor. You can use it after dry body brushing (which did help keep cellulite at bay during the early months of pregnancy when exercising was difficult. Pregnancy doesn't require much of a circulation boost as your circulation is already pretty pumped up having to cope with a baby growing inside too. With prices starting from £4.75 for a travel size, it's a great treat for weekends away (or going in to hospital!).

Tisserand Intensive Hand and Nail Cream. This is my biggest addiction. However, I feel I should qualify this as whenever I use this (for example sitting in a doctors waiting room) everyone seems to like it and even look around to see where it is coming from. One receptionist asked what it was! Even Mr OJ says that when I use it in the car and he gets in, he notices and says that "something smells nice". Which is high praise indeed. I can often be found with my face in my hands (not crying) but inhaling deeply the gorgeous essential oils. There are far too many to mention. At around £7 for a generous handbag sized tube (75ml), it's an absolute bargain and a delight to use. It lasts months and I repurchase time and time again. But I warn you, it's highly addictive!

Jonathan Ward candles, I don't need to tell you how much I adore Jonathan's candles. I own more than my fair share but they have been marvellous. I wish I could take one with me to hospital (perhaps I shall sneak in some tea lights)

Since I have gestational diabetes I can't mention the normal cravings of chocolate, cake and icecream which I would love to indulge in! Although, I can have them sometimes, probably less than the average non-diabetic! I suspect that my other senses are trying to compensate as I also adore using bright and bold make up and nail wraps! I think pregnancy heightens all of your senses so it's been a great time to experiment with new products.

Do you have any weird addictions (to legal substances) or pregnancy cravings that you'd like to share?
