Mia's 12 month update

I can't believe my little bubba is a year old! Actually... She is now 13 months old, but she was born over a month early, so I am writing the update now, as the doctors have been using her adjusted age for any of her checkups, development etc. I personally just go by her actual age, as despite being 5 weeks premature, she was born huge (10lb 10oz) and after the initial help she needed, she was just like a full term baby. She is sooo, sooo amazing and I just can't believe how lucky we are to have such a crazy munchkin in our lives!

Models Own Makeup

I am a bit late to the party (I feel like I start most of my reviews this way, haha), but hey... Models Own do makeup! I love their nail polishes and they were one of the first brands I fell in love with back when I started blogging, so it's nice to see them expanding their makeup collection and branching out into a new territory. I think they had a few makeup bits on offer already, but the new selection is huge!

Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks

I don't own many Too Faced products, but I have always been intrigued by the brand and the two products I have tried are amazing - the Better Than Sex Mascara (review) and one of the La Creme lipsticks in Juicy Watermelon (review). When I was kindly sent the latest shades from the range, I was like a kid with new toys :) Couldn't wait to swatch them all and play around with the colours. The La Creme Color Drenched Lipsticks*(£18.00) are simply stunning inside and out and I am obsessed with the formula!

Mia's time with her grandparents (AD)

As a mum, I constantly worry if I am doing enough for my baby. She is precious to me and I want to make sure I do the best I can. I very rarely leave Mia with anyone, as she is mostly breastfed and I get anxious about any separation, but... when I need some 'me time' or want to plan a date night with my husband, I leave Mia and Zachary with their grandmum and about 10 bags of 'essentials' haha :)

Quick Mexican and Brazilian lunch ideas

Before I had my second baby, I had plenty of time for everything. As soon as Mia arrived, it all changed and I often struggle to prepare every single one of my meals from scratch. If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I love cooking, but having a quick ready meal in the fridge or freezer is always a must for me, as I need the calories to breastfeed and I can't skip meals. The new limited edition Weight Watchers meals fit into my new life as a mum of 2 perfectly and they are pretty yummy too!

Lancome Grandiose Bendable Liner Review

I am one of those people who is faithful to one liner and keeps repurchasing it. I try a lot of new formats and formulas, but I always stick to my one and only Bourjois Liner Pinceau in Black. It has been my Holy Grail for the past 7 years and I don't think it will ever change. There aren't many liners that even compare to my favourite, but the new Lancome Grandiose*(£23.00) is now officially my second choice and I adore it!

Current skincare favourites

My skin has been a real pain lately, with lots of hormonal breakouts and those horrible little bumps right under the surface. I am pretty sure that it has something to do with the amount of cake I've had recently for mine and Mia's birthday. Anyway... I am currently sticking to a simple regime and these are my favourite products to help me soothe my skin, get rid of the scarring and prevent future breakouts.

Mia's 1st Birthday Cake Smash

First of all - how is my baby girl 1 already? I feel like I gave birth a couple of months ago. She is now walking (well, running), jumping around and climbing everything! She also loves feeding herself, so I decided that we will do a cake smash for her birthday. She is obsessed with food, so I knew she was going to love every second of it.
