The Autumn Tag!

Autumn is my favourite month so when Loubee tagged me in her Autumn tag I was excited to do my own. Here are my answers:

What's your favourite autumnal lip colour?

Only recently have I been more interested in lip colours instead of balms or clear gloss. I have always struggled to see if shades suit me or not, as I have a super fair complexion. More often than not I will wear a super nourishing lip balm from Burt's Bees or Carmex to stop my lips from becoming dry and cracked.

My Top 5 Scary Movies

Happy Halloween!

I have always been a fan of spooky. Particularly paranormal spooky. I get a bit bored of zombies & slasher gore-fests, but will always be interested in a ghostly tale or two.

In homage to the day I would like to share my top 5 scary movies. So, without further ado...

Happy Mum, Happy Baby

I am a big fan of Giovanna Fletcher. I subscribe to her YouTube channel, read her blog for Hello Magazine, and buy her fiction books. So it comes as no surprise that I would buy and read 'Happy mum, Happy baby', especially as the release of it coincided with becoming a mummy myself. 

Although I received my copy as soon as it was released I never got around to reading it straight away, as with a newborn my tired eyes could barely focus on the baby, let alone a book! When I did pick it up to read I had a good few weeks of motherhood under my belt.

My Breastfeeding Journey

I didn't have the easiest start to breastfeeding. In fact it was incredibly frustrating and upsetting. As a new mum there is so much to get used to, to worry about and to deal with the overwhelming emotion of seeing your baby that when something isn't going so well it seems like all is lost. I persevered through it all and I am so glad I did, because although breastfeeding isn't an easy thing to do I know it's best for Abigail and that is the only thing that kept me trying to get it right.

There is so much pressure to breastfeed. All through my pregnancy my midwives and health visitors kept going on about it. I knew I wanted to try from the very beginning though so I didn't batter an eyelid about it.

The Harry Potter Tag

Harry Potter is definitely one of my obsessions so a massive thank you to Frankii for tagging me in the Harry Potter tag. Without further ado, here are my answers:

What house are you in?

On Pottermore, I was sorted into Gryffindor House, however I would have liked to have been in Hufflepuff, as I am incredibly loyal and fair, although my patience isn't up to scratch! (It has certainly improved greatly since becoming a mum)
