    This isn’t quite the right place for this comment, but I can’t find a better one. Anyway, I really love the idea of your “Edits” and have made many great purchases based on your suggestions, so I hope we get an October Edit soon! The weather’s too far gone to keep seeing the white dress 🙂

    Can you double check the breast milk link. My friend is pregnant and I can actually have access to breast milk for free, so I want to know if it would work.

    If you ever think of hopping on a flight to Paris, I would love to see you put out a post like you did for London so that I can share tips. (I’ve been living in Paris for 3.5 years).
