Toddler Meal Ideas… International, Vegetarian,Carnivore, Exotic- She Eats It All!

People say that my kid eats better than they do and this might be true.

I love to cook and I am not crazy about ‘conventional’ American food at all.

I am attempting to limit our red meat consumption and have been doing a lot of vegan and vegetarian meals lately.

Luckily, my Maisie is not a very picky girl and she has a healthy appetite (and is consistently off the charts for height and a very healthy weight- but not fat- ).

She basically eats everything that we eat- which can be vegan, carnivore, or any number of foreign foods, depending on my mood.

You’ll see a lot of persimmons and mandarin oranges lately on her plate because it is in season and her fave (and I bought a case of persimmons!).
Here are some highlights from her meals on Instagram.

the book “Goodnight Moon” makes my 15 month old cry EVERY TIME (VIDEO)

goodnightmoon

We bought her the book “Good Night Moon” today. When R read it the first time to her, he discovered that she started bawling during the “good night” parts.

She absolutely fell to pieces! She had him read it to her a few more times and always started crying and getting sad at the same parts!

This was her first time (well, she made him read it 4 or 5x in a row) reading it…

After this vid was made, she ‘read’ it TO us (by turning the pages and saying “good night” to each page)- by the end of the book again she was pouting/sobbing and wiping tears.

This is very unusual. This child LOVES books, but they’ve never made her so emotional.

Birchbox Benefit LASHtastic Mascara Sampler Review

This Birchbox Sampler was purchased with my Birchbox points- the lash curler was a free gift (using a coupon code).

The box contains 3 different Benefit mascaras: They’re Real, Bad Gal, and Roller Lash.

The Bad Gal mascara sample was disappointingly dry.

They’re Real is amazing, one of my favorites. It gives fuller, thicker lashes… but I have to use a waterproof sealer over it (I use NYX mascara sealer) or I get raccoon eyes.

The Roller Lash mascara gives great length and doesn’t clump at all.

All in all, I think this was one of their better sampler packs. I absolutely love Benefit mascaras!

The Eyeko lash curler was nice, too. My lashes are extremely difficult to curl and I generally don’t use lash curlers because I’ve had issues in the past with cutting off my lashes by accident with them.

December 2015 Birchbox Review

this month’s theme is “All Wrapped Up”

As I was hurrying to post my late Birchbox reviews, I received December’s in the mail.

I am not a huge fan of Birchbox, which I’ve mentioned before. Their samples are very small- and they tend to repeat their brands.

The Coastal Scents eye shadow sample was incredibly small- thank goodness it has great pigmentation!

If you only have $10 per month to spend on a subscription service, I recommend Ipsy over Birchbox any day.

That being said, I’ll keep my subscription a bit longer. I cancelled Birchbox Man this month, because it was a waste of $20 a month.

it seems to me that Birchbox spends all their money on packaging and shafts you on content

 


teeny samples

this eyeshadow was smaller than I expected

 

pigmentation was surprisingly good

Aigle Aiglentine Fur Lined Boots

So awesome! #momlife #boots #aiglentine #winterboots #wellies #rainboots #aigle #aigleboots

A post shared by Miss Maisie (@missmaisiebabyfashionista) on

I was searching high and low for decent wellies that could take me into the wet, cold Michigan winters, too. A friend of mine suggested Aigles and I am so glad that I listened to her!

Aigle rain boots have been hand made in France since 1853. The quality is amazing!

I found a lovely pair of olive green, faux fur lined Aiglentines.

These boots run a bit big, as most wellies/rain boots do. I am usually a size 40 or a 9.5 US. The boots I ordered were a 39 or 8.5. They fit perfectly.

I would suggest most people size down 1 size when ordering.

I hate socks, so the fur lining makes up that. My feet stay dry and warm, even after walking in the muck for hours. They’re super comfy, too-

Aigles fit snuggly- and do well over skinny jeans and leggings. I have very muscular calves and haven’t had any problem with them being too tight.

This won’t be my last pair of Aigles. I plan on getting more in different colors.

Birchbox November 2015 Review


I am super late reviewing my subscription boxes… this was November’s Birchbox.

These reviews are going to be super brief. I am not really enjoying my Birchbox subscriptions and have already cancelled Birchbox Man.

I think Ipsy is a much better subscription service- you get more ‘bang for your buck’.

Inside, I received a hairspray, some hair masque, a face cream, a stinky body wash, and eye brow mascara.

The hairspray had a huge scratch down the front- but I liked it.

The superskin moisturizer was just okay.

The brow mascara was the best item in the box.

  

Nice gash in the hairspray, Birchbox.

Arctic Explorer- December 2015 Birchbox Man Review

This is the last Birchbox Man box I will ever receive- I cancelled the subscription.

Honestly, I don’t think the subscription is worth the $20 USD per month.

This was my first glimpse of the box (above).


The cashmere hat was nice and warm- besides that, it was basically the same ole same ole stuff we received every month.

I think that Das Boom stuff stinks…
