It’s been a few weeks since we last had a Bloggers Best Bits feature! This week, we have the lovely Jess from Beauties and the Bibs. Over to Jess…
Who are you and where do you blog?
Hi, my name is Jess and I blog over at Beauties and the Bibs you can find this at www.beautiesandthebibs.co.uk. I write about my life as a new and first time parent. Both the difficult times and the times of happiness.
What is your favourite blog post?
My favourite post is about hand me down clothes and items that you can read here.
Give us a taster… What’s it about?
I think this post was relatable to so many people. Many parents will tell you having a child can be an expensive game, but we can do things to keep the costs down.
What inspired you to write this post?
I have been gifted some fantastic things since having Ava from clothes to play equipment. Before I had Ava I thought that accepting these items would make people think I couldn’t afford to buy my daughter things. Since having Ava this opinion has completely changed, as I had so much stuff Ava hardly worn or played with and have gifted them to other people. So that they get there use as things are not cheap and are hardly used.
What makes this your favourite post?
I think it is successful because people can relate to it. As many parents have been in this situation. Either the person to gift items or to receive them.
Where can we find you?
Thank you so much to Jess for featuring this week – I agree, having children can be so expensive, but there are things you can do to keep costs at a minimum. Second-hand clothes are one option; babies aren’t in their clothes for long before they’re outgrown anyway! What other tips would you give to new parents to keep costs down?
