Food! Glorious food…

Whenever I tell people this problem I am having with my 14 month old, they say I am so lucky, and in a way I am. Hallie will eat pretty much anything, which is great, the problem is she won’t stop eating it.

Hallie has a really balanced diet and trust me she is definitely getting enough food (if not too much), but there is just no filling her. Every mealtime begins with cries as I am preparing her food, I have even starting doing her lunches in the morning so they are ready to go. I have tried healthy snacks in the day, but this just makes things worse, if she has a snack at 10:30/11am she just cries as it wasn’t enough and she wants her full lunch, this is the same in the afternoon also.

At the end of mealtime I hold my breath hoping tears are not going to follow after her three course meal…

I would love to know if anyone else has this problem or any advice? At the moment I am just going with it, as I figure she must need it. She is a sturdy 14 month old, but she isn’t by any means overweight. She also still has a bottle at night, but has lost the two in the day, so maybe just needs more to cover this. As I say, meal ideas and snack ideas aren’t the issue as she loves it all! I have to eat my lunch at the same time or I end up sharing it, even if she has had hers.

It is quite funny at times and cute, but my gosh those tears are wearing me down! My friends are always surprised at how much she eats, she sits next to their children playing with her food and can eat an adult portion!

Anyway, moan over, she eats and she is healthy so I can’t complain too much. I just feel I am a bit alone with this as everyone else seems to have the opposite problem?!

Oh well, she is one on her own that’s for sure.

If you have come across this, comment below! Would love to know what you did etc…

My new ‘go to’ products

It is almost that time of the year again for our family HOLIDAY time! I have started making the lists and checking them twice, comparing them to last year to check I don’t forget anything, and that is when it struck me, I have new products in my life, products I now love and that I must share…

DR PAWPAW It Does It All 7 In One Hair Treatment Styler

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. It has been a while since I fell this hard for a product, especially a hair product (of which I am particularly fussy, ever since pregnancy/post pregnancy hair loss days).  I have bleach on my hair once a month, so I need to make sure I take care of it. Part of my daily hair dry routine begins with a spray in/leave in conditioner before I run the brush through. I normally buy these from the hairdressers as it feels safer and I was dubious when I was recommended the PAWPAW, but i needn’t worry, it is fantastic. I use it all the time, it smells like holiday, so that cheers your day right up to begin with. Equally if my hair loses it’s way during the day a quick spritz of the PawPaw and it looks and smells great again. My hair is in a great place right now and I think that is mainly down to (a fantastic hairdresser) and PAW PAW!

Browvo! Conditioning Primer

I am sadly from the over plucked eyebrows era, gutting. I have been going to the benefit counter to get my eyebrows tinted and waxed, which has helped make them look fuller, but I needed something more. The assistant told me to look no further then Browvo! ‘In 28 days you will notice a huge difference’, sceptical I bought it and smeared it over my brows as soon as I got home. You are suppose to use it morning and night, so I have it next to my bed to do both. I kid you not, two weeks in I noticed a difference, the hairs were cropping up all over the shop (well within the brow and eye region). I am now hooked and going to have to get more as they are getting fuller and fuller. Soon I will have erased 2000’s brow mistakes!

Dr PAWPAW Tinted Peach Pink Balm

Yes, they have another great product! a tinted balm that I use on my lips but can be used elsewhere, such as cheeks. It is great for mums on the go, it is good for your lips and gives you a gentle colour on them. What I like, is that is doesn’t feel greasy and like it is just sat on top of your lips like some balms. I also have a small pocket size one without the tint for on the go. The only thing I have noticed with the tinted one is that it seems to smell different now, not a bad smell just different, so wondering if it has a shelf life…or I might have just left the lid off or something.

Sephora Trio Blusher

This isn’t a new product, this is my forever ‘go to’ blusher. I fell in love with it 3 years ago and I haven’t found a better product. We are going to Rhodes and Rhodes Town has a Sephora! Yay!! It has a pink and brown and a light pink to highlight. Follow the back for tips on where to put it and you will never look back…
