For Pip: shampoo

I keep meaning to do a round up post of all the products that I love for Pip, in case anyone is looking for present ideas, baby shower ideas, or just shopping recommendations. Swanky toiletries are one of my favourite presents to give – I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t like the idea […]
