I would like to take my hat off to all those new mom bloggers who’s blogging schedules don’t skip a beat! I don’t know how you do it.
I’ve been part of the mom club for three and a half weeks now and I’m loving it. Yes, it is hard work, but its enjoyable work. Plus it doesn’t hurt that my baby is super cute :P.
I’ve not had a single chance to take outfit photos. I’ve been quite proud of the fact that I’ve not been living in my pyjamas (well, not everyday!). But taking outfit photos seems to be something that I need to work up to.
In the mean time I thought I’d share a few things I’ve found across the internet that I found interesting and useful.
Bailey Schneider from Vanilla blonde has made a list of ten examples from her own life of why she thinks brands should use bloggers to promote their products.
I agree with her that if I see something in the shops that I’ve seen promoted on blogs I follow, I tend to take more notice. However, if it is a product that has been plastered on almost every blog I follow plus the blogger’s social media accounts I find it has the opposite effect.

Audrey put together a nice little guide on what to wear on professional family shoot. I really like the way she breaks down her thought processes. Instead of saying “I took a look on Pinterest for inspiration” she breaks down what she liked and didn’t like about the her inspiration images she found. Her way of br

By the way, how adorable is her family?!
Wayne Goss demonstrates how (and if) you should contour your forehead with his simple four finger rule. I don’t usually contour my face, though I do love playing with make up. This is a handy tip worth knowing.
I hope you found these snippets as useful or as interesting as I did.
