It's safe to say I was overdue a visit to the salon, and with the new Rush Hair Salon opening in Leicester city centre, I headed over to see what the team could do to my postnatal hair.

For me there is an instant feeling of luxury and extravagance when you sink into a bath that has had a splash of oil. It wasn't until my mid-20's that I realised how beautiful bath oils were, previously worrying that they would make baths slippery and I'd come out needing to jump straight back in the shower! In fact, bath oils are nothing like I imagined and now, years later, are one of my favourite bath products.
A lot has happened in the past month, with Willow now over half a year old - just -, and forever edging closer to being 1. With a house month in July and settling into a new little routine for all of us, it's been a month of big changes for the whole family, not just Willow. Yesterday (August 26th), Willow turned 7 months, and I can't believe how quickly her first year is flying by.

One of my favourite places to dine in Loughborough is Browns Lane, a venue with a beautiful restaurant serving a la carte cuisine accompanied by a relaxed bar, perfect for post dinner drinks. Situated on Browns Lane, a minutes walk from Loughborough town centre, it's the perfect destination for any occasion.

My Mama-Made Monday's series is well underway and so far I have shared my favourite community for bringing together awesome alternative mamas, Punky Moms, as well as some amazing brands with gorgeous products, such as Little Button Cloud, The Milk Collective, Woody and Florence and Fred & Olive.
Today I'm sharing Blossom and Bear. A lovely website I came across on Instagram which has a whole host of beautiful products including personalised prints and essentials for both new mamas and babes. There's also a few of my favourite brands available on Blossom and Bear, so a must-visit for treat buys! Let's hand things over to Sarah, the brains behind the brand.

I think we can all agree that when you are pregnant, you spend a lot of time researching and Googling, trying to find out what you need, what labour will be like and all the big milestones your baby will reach. One of those milestones is starting to eat, no longer relying just on milk but instead delving into a world of tastes, flavours and textures.
When I was pregnant I simply assumed that we would wean Willow at 4 months, using pureed food, the same way I was weaned when I was a baby and many generations before me. I didn't realise there was even another way to introduce food to your baby and I had planned the equipment I would buy to make our own purees for Willow, I was actually quite excited about it. Then I came across Baby Led Weaning.
After looking into Baby Led Weaning, how it worked and ultimately, why it is recommended as the way to wean your baby, I knew it was for us. The idea of purees went completely out of the window and I was excited to try something which seems relatively new, although has actually been the recommended weaning approach for many years.
