Waylen’s Wardrobe

So pretty much Waylen is now the most fashionable person in my household. Do I still enjoy buying clothing for myself? Uhhh yeah, but 1) tiny clothes are SO MUCH CUTER and 2) to be honest my ‘mom uniform’ is pretty much just a t-shirt and jeans these days. Lately everyone has been asking where I get Waylen’s clothes so I figured I’d do a blog post to outline my favorite shops.

 

Let’s start with big chain stores. H&M and Cotton On are my go-to shops for inexpensive basics. I LOVE Cotton On’s zip pjs. They are slim fitting (but not too slim that my chunky monkey won’t fit,) have the cutest patterns, and zip all the way up. I almost never use snap PJ’s or Rompers anymore. In my opinion they take too long, especially now that Waylen is older and much wigglier.

 

H&M has everything; cute jeggings, t-shirts, rompers, etc. all for relatively cheap. I would recommend just shopping online rather than going into the store. Online has a WAYY better selection and hello, is a lot less messy.

Now let’s talk Etsy shops. Chappy seriously makes fun of me SO much over my favorite shop. He always like “What’s that box, another shipment from Australiaaaa??????” UM YES! Hello Sunny Afternoon’s Clothes are seriously the best. I LOVE all her patterns and the fabrics are SO soft.


Some other Etsy shops I love are The Stitched Co 

and Monsters Under My Bed.

Lastly let’s talk about some other small shops that I frequent way too often.

  1. Little Bipsy carries a bunch of different brands (and seriously just be ready to buy one of everything) BUT if you’re just going to get one thing, GET THEIR BUTTON ROMPER. It is seriously butter. I made the mistake of ordering a size for fall so now I’m stuck waiting until Waylen can fit it. Here’s a Kippkids zip romper that I got from them as well. So stretchy and amazing!                            
  2. Rags to Raches is all about the pull-on romper. No zips, snaps or buttons!                                 
  3. Babalus by Lucy has the cutest doggie leggings for your baby… and YOU if you want to match. I actually don’t even have a dog pair yet but I did snag these adorable tape pants.                     

 

We can’t forget about accessories! Waylen is almost always wearing a hat so here’s a list of my favorites shops to get hats from:

  • George Hats                                                 
  • Binky Bro                                     
  • Noxx Beanies                                
  • Jack and Winn                              

Now get shopping! But seriously, go buy everything so I can’t because I’ve already spent WAYYY to much on Waylen’s Wardrobe. Ha.

Breast Milk Cleanser

Alright, here me out. I swear I’m not some sicko who’s gone off the deep end. When getting a facial at MUD the other day I noticed that one of their add ons is breast milk. While I wasn’t quite ready to dive right in and use some strangers breast milk to lather up my face, it did spark my interest. You see, I am a nursing mother who just happens to have a steady enough supply to spare some milk in the quest for perfect skin. Now in general my skin care routine is pretty simple. I use all drug store products and that MUD facial I just had was literally the first professional thing I had ever done to my skin. This is how my typical night time routine goes… double cleanse with Cetaphil, Roc Retinol night cream, then No7 intense night cream. Pretty simple.


 To try out this whole breast milk deal I decided to swop out my second Cetaphil cleanse for milk. Here is how it went .. and no judging my extremely flattering no makeup selfies 😂

Before:

I am usually pretty blessed when it comes to acne but with Waylen at the start of his 4 month regression and me upping my caffeine and sugar intake to keep up, a few surprise zits popped up. Now if you went to any baby class while pregnant I’m sure you heard that you can literally put breast milk on anything to make it better. Baby scratches his face? Put breast milk on it. Baby acne? Put breast milk on it. Nipples sore from nursing? Don’t bother buying creams, just use breast milk. Because of this I was pretty excited to try out my milk while having a fresh third eye on my forehead. Hopefully it works wonders and FAST!

Day 1: 


Day 2: 

Day 3:

Day 4:

Day 5:


Sooo after all that I didn’t really notice a huge difference. My zit did disappear but then again they always do eventually right? Ha. Ever since giving birth I’ll get these little dry patches of skin around my eyes but after a week of breast milk those are all gone so at least that’s something! Besides that though, my skin looks pretty much the same. Womp womp. Will I keep it up? Maybe, I mean it is free and I wouldn’t be going through my cleanser as fast… plus who knows, maybe I’ll see a bigger difference after more than 5 days! 

I’ll keep you posted!
