There is a very misleading attitude amongst women when it comes to pregnancy, which is only made stronger by the Internet in my opinion. The idea of women being these superhero figures that nurture and grow a baby within their bodies for 9 long months only makes them seem even more mystical.

One of the newer places to eat here in Jeddah has become the cafe/eatery type restaurants.

At first, I thought this was so stupid, why don’t I just spray my regular perfume in my hair (which I’ve always done) but after using it I think I kinda like it.
