Can you tell my readers about yourself and your blog.
My name is Rachel and I blog at umeandthekids, a Parenting and Lifestyle blog. I love to feature party ideas for kids and teen advice posts.

I loved working with Coca Cola, Lush, Yankee Candles and more recently L'Oreal.

I would love to work with more beauty brands like Benefit and MAC as I am a massive fan of their products.
Do you have any tips for new bloggers?
Don't compare yourself to other blogs and be proud of the small steps you will take at first.
What is your most popular blog post to date?
My fear on having my second baby and would I ever love them the same as my first child http://umeandthekids.com/second-baby-can-love/ . I got some great feedback and didn't realise just how many people felt the same.
