Day In The Life|Mommy Blog #6 7 Month Old Update

It has been a long time since I have done a Day In The Life post, so I thought now would be a good time since my little girl is officially 7 months old! She turned 7 months on December 6th. I honestly cannot believe how fast time has been going by. She is growing so fast and I feel like she is learning something new every single day. 

I feel like she has learned so much from 6 months to 7 months. She is all over the floor rolling to wherever she wants to go. She isn't crawling yet, but she has started to turn her body now so she can look in the direction she wants to look. Since she does roll like crazy, there has been a few times where she had made her way under the Christmas tree! She also has been learning to stand more and has been doing a lot better at sitting up on her own.

I am also excited because she now has her two bottom teeth! She has been drooling like crazy so I have a feeling her top teeth will be in soon as well. As for food, we do feed her purees and so far there hasn't been anything she doesn't like. Some of her favorites to eat are by Beech-nut. She loves the sweet potatoes, pear, kale & cucumber and banana, cinnamon and granola. She also enjoys the Beech-nut Organic Oatmeal. Right now she only gets two jars each day and the rest is formula. But we are hoping to start moving away from purees and start to give actual food. I will save that info for another post. 

It is just incredible to me how fast she is growing. The other day she even started clapping with me. I can't wait to see what she will be learning next!

With Christmas right around the corner I was thinking of doing a post where I share with you guys what gifts I picked out for her for Christmas. If that is something you would like to see and read about please let me know and I would love to do that for you! I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday! Here is a few more photos I took from our little photoshoot from Friday! 



New MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour's|Swatches

Whenever MAC comes out with new products, I seriously get so excited. They always come up with such cool ideas and very unique colors when it comes to lip products. They recently came out with the Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour's, and they are stunning. These babies are holographic and have tons of iridescent pearls. They also have a cool sensation on your lips which makes your lips feel fuller. These are so pretty and look amazing on top of many lipstick shades. For this post I only swatched each one by themselves. 

MAC was kind enough to send over 7 different shades. There is a total of 14 shades in the whole entire collection ranging from many different shades like green, orange, yellow purple and pink. Instead of doing a basic review I just wanted to do a post on the swatches and up close photos of each one I have. 

These do retail for $21.00 and can be bought from any places where MAC is sold including www.ulta.com. Each name is listed under each photo as well as a short description of the shade. I hope you enjoy! Let me know in the comments below with which one is your favorite.  

This is in the shade Let's Rock. It is a copper orange with green and yellow iridescence. 

This is in the shade Twinkle Twink. This is a coral with gold pearl. 

This one is one of my favorites! This is Pearly Girl which is a cool pink with red and gold iridescence. 

Next is Broken Halo which is a silver with multi-color iridescence.

This one is Queen's Violet. It is a beautiful royal purple with blue and pink iridescence. 

This is also one of my favorites and its in the shade Sensory Overload. It is a blackened deep purple with shimmering iridescence. 

Last shade is Pink Trip which is a bright pink with blue iridescence. 



My Current Skincare Favorites|December 2017

Hi loves, I was seriously thinking about doing Blogmas this year, but I didn't want to let anyone down including my self in case I couldn't make a post everyday, so instead of Blogmas, I am going to try and post at least three times a week! I am also going to try and do a few giveaways as well with the Holidays coming up. I thought I would start December off with some of my current favorite skincare items. I have been using all of these products for the last couple of weeks and will continue to use them throughout December. My skin gets so awful in the winter so I am very picky when it comes to my skincare and with my dry skin. So I thought I would just share my current favorites with ya'll. A few of these are considered more high end and a few are considered drugstore. So lets go a head and get started! I will be talking about each product from left to right. 
  • Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub: I use this scrub almost everyday. When I am not using this scrub, there is a different one I use which I will mention very soon. This scrub is very gentle on the skin. I love using this after I use a cleanser. It leaves my face feeling really smooth. This product retails for $9.99 and can be purchased at www.ulta.com and most drugstores. 
  • DermaE Hydrating Night Cream with Hyaluronic Acid: I have been loving this moisturizer. I obviously apply it at night time. It has so many different vitamins in it and macadamia oil to really help moisturize your skin. And it also smells wonderful which is a plus. This product retails for $24.99 and can be found at www.ulta.com or www.dermae.com
  • DermaE Microdermabrasion Scrub with Dead Sea Salt: When I do not use the Biore scrub, I use this. This one is a little more harsh compared to the Biore one, so when my face is feeling extra dry and flakey I will go in with this scrub. It has an amazing fresh scent and leaves my face feeling flawless. This product retails for $29.99 and can be found at www.ulta.com or www.dermae.com
  • DermaE Hydrating Cleanser: This is my everyday face cleansers. I like to use it in the morning and at night. It is part of the same line as the night cream and using these two together seriously makes a huge difference in my skin. I love these two together. I need to pick up the day cream as well! This product retails for $15.50 and can be found at www.dermae.com
  • Glamglow Supercleanse Clearing Cream-to-Foam Cleanser: This cleanser is seriously amazing. I get little breakouts here and there and this cleanser and the face mask does such a great job at clearing my skin. It can be used on all skin types. I have the Jelly Balm cleanser too, but this one is for sure my favorite. If you get breakouts, I would highly recommend checking this out. It retails for $32.00 and can be found at www.sephora.com
  • Glamglow Supercleanse Clearing Treatment: This is my go-to face mask. I've used this mask for a couple of years now and it will forever be my favorite. If you have very sensitive skin, this may cause irritation. It will leave your face pretty red after using, but it does such an amazing job at clearing all my pores. A lot of times I will use it only on my t-zone and sometimes my cheeks which is where I get the most breakouts. It is such an incredible mask. This product retails for $69.00 and can be found at www.sephora.com.
  • REN Perfect Canvas Skin Finishing Serum: I have been using this for product now for about a month and a half. I apply it before adding my makeup. It is really cool because it goes from a serum to a primer and it helps smooth and reduce pore size. So I love to apply this all over my face just to give a little extra base to my makeup. It also helps reduce redness and dryness, which is a huge plus for me. This product retails for $55.00 and can be found at www.sephora.com
Those are all of my current skincare favorites. Some of them I have been using for a while now and some are new to me since the beginning of November. Once I find things that work with my skin, I stick with it. The only other product I use is makeup remover wipes which those are always changing, so I really don't have a favorite of those.

Let me know in the comments below what some of your favorites are for the winter. I would love to hear your recommendations.
