How would you describe your own personal style?
My style is totally defined according to my mood. It depends on the day and what is fashionable, nothing exaggerated but discreet. I like the casual and not complicated
Your favorite maternity brand?
I liked Seraphine a lot. H&M Mama, ASOS and Prénatal.
How would your friends describe you in 10 words?
Happy, strong, friend, powerful, fighter, sweet, funny, temperamental, Latin, stylish.
How did you experience your first pregnancy?
It was totally unexpected, the first 4 months were torture, I had all the symptoms, accompanied by carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes and a short pregnancy because it was a twin.
What was your reaction when you found out you were expecting twins?
Shock shock shock. Omg, omg omg!
How is it to be a mom of twin girls?
The best thing that could ever happen to me in my life, double happiness. Very heavy the first month but fortunately I have the easiest girls in the world. They don’t cry and from the second month they slept all night, yes!
Did you change your beauty regime during your pregnancy?
Yes, definitely took care of myself much more. I have always suffered from acne since my adolescence so during pregnancy I stopped using creams that could affect pregnancy, however my skin improved a lot and I was much happier.
What was your best kept beauty secret during your pregnancy?
Bio oil was a must during pregnancy. I applied it on my belly every day and it helped a lot to reduce stretch marks and keep me hydrated.
You are totally back in shape again. How did you do that?
During pregnancy I gained only 10kg. I didn’t follow any diet and I could not breastfeed either. However, the time I was in the hospital was a bit stressful, because one of the twins had to stay for recovery and I think the stress made me lose weight. Then I started exercising (which I still do)and eating healthy until I reached my pre babies weight again.
Did you do any reading during your pregnancy? What is the best pregnancy book?
Because my lack of concentration during pregnancy I opt for the audio book option. Listen to the “Hypnobirthing home study course by Kathryn Clark” helped. Although my pregnancy was since the beginning planned as a cesarean this helped me to be relaxed and calm during the operation. It was the best!
Can you describe the interior of your nursery in terms of style and theme? Are there any specific brands you used to decorate?
The theme is flowers, flamingos, and unicorns. Pastel shades of pale pink and white. Most of the things I bought at Babypark, Prénatal and some items I bought in Spain.
