High Heels and Nappies says goodbye for now.....

Well it is with a heavy heart I write this last post but unfortunately I have realised I am not wonder women and juggling a job, family and blog is well all a bit much for the moment. After almost a year of blogging...with readers from Russia to Mexico...I look back and proudly say it has been a wonderful experience, learning new skills, making new friends and discovering new brands.... and the list goes on...

I am hoping High Heels and Nappies will return one day .....maybe with the next pregnancy:)
So this is not a goodbye but more of a see you later :)
Lots of Love
