Breastfeeding: Q&A with Medela's Lactation Consultant

As promised, I am continuing my breastfeeding series and today I have a Q&A with Medela's Lactation Consultant Sioned. I asked her some questions about combination feeding, increasing your milk supply and advice for the early days of breastfeeding. I hope you enjoy it.

NEW! Bourjois A/W 2015

I mentioned the new Bourjois launches on Instagram a couple of times and I was hoping to have the time to swatch them all for you, hence why I waited so long with this post. I did manage to swatch the lipsticks and one of the foundations, but the 2 month old dictator I gave birth to recently didn't let me finish, haha :) I hope you can forgive me this time. It's funny how a 4 year old and a newborn run my schedule these days. I will update the rest of the swatches when I can. Now let's talk about the gorgeous products!

Doona Car Seat/Stroller review

When it comes to reviews, I always try to find pros and cons and I also try not too come across as an overexcited toddler, haha :) But... with the Doona infant car seat/pushchair*, I just want to scream: OMG! I LOVE IT! Everyone needs one! What is this magic and why didn't I have one for Zachary? Seriously - it is life changing and I am not exaggerating! Just have a look at the gif below and if you are a parent, you will know what I mean.

My 5 Product Face

I very rarely have time to do a full face of makeup these days, but I became a pro at doing my makeup in the car, really quickly. I usually go for only 5 products and keep it very simple. I used to be the kind of person who doesn't leave the house without a smokey eye, so it's a big change, but I am now used to looking more natural.

Casual OOTD

Outfit posts are very rare on this blog, although I have tried to make them a regular feature many times. I used to do Fashion Mondays, but with the baby and lots of other things happening, I can't really commit to anything 100%. But... here is a simple casual OOTD I managed to photograph last weekend.

My Little Fashion Box (September 2015)

I don't usually keep up with fashion trends, so the full Fashion Week craze doesn't interest me, but I absolutely adore the Fashion themed My Little Box*. You don't really have to be fashionable to enjoy the contents to be honest, as the box is just lovely!

Vichy Normaderm BB Clear

Some of my favourite bases are aimed at oily and/or imperfection prone skin, just like the new Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Unifying Corrective Cream* (£16.00), so I was excited to give this one a go.

New In: Skincare & Bodycare

I can't remember the last time I wrote about skincare and bodycare. It's been a long time and to be honest, I very rarely have 'me time' lately and pampering became a real luxury. I became the queen of multitasking. Breastfeeding, replying to emails with one hand and eating my dinner in between sentences. It's ridiculous, haha! Anyway... Here are some lovely skincare and bodycare bits I wanted to show you.
