Quick Meals For Your Toddler : Easy Delicious Egg Cups

Like most mums, I strive to be the best mum I can be. And a very important factor for me is proving my son with the optimum amount of nutrition he needs to grow and be healthy. I believe that home cooked meals and snacks give a better nutrition punch than pre made packaged food. That being said, I know first hand how the pressure to constantly cook healthy yet delicious meals can get drive you insane! That is why you need a repertoire of quick meals for your toddler.

So I have been trying to find new and easy snack and lunch ideas that can be done quickly so I am not slaving away at the stove throughout the whole day. One idea that has been a success for both me ( time  and nutrition wise) and Gabriel (Taste wise) has been egg cups.

Basically an omelette in muffin form. These delicious little cups are great finger food for your little one and are very easy to make. What is genius about them is that you can use anything you have in your fridge. Which means you can switch them up a bit. Some of my favourite variations are tomatoes, mushrooms and ham and courgettes and feta cheese.

How To Wash Your Make Up Brushes (And Not Have To Wait Days For Them To Dry)

With Christmas and New Years Parties I must admit that my make up brushes have taken a beating in the last few weeks. They have been covered and recovered in foundation, eyeshadows, lip shades, concealer and then packed into a tight make up bag. As well as been the cause of many tanned coloured stains on my pouches and table tops!

If you are anything like me than washing your brushes is not something you enjoy. The process of takes time and waiting for them to dry properly before using them again can be excruciating.

Putting that aside, it is essential that your brushes are washed regularly and properly. Besides the obvious reasons of hygiene, reusing dirty brushes can make your make up look amateur, no matter how skilled you are. And don’t forget the damage it can cause to your brushes! ( which must I say, they are pretty expensive so you don’t want to have to keep buying them).

So I thought i would share with you my cleaning routine which has been a game changer for me and my brushes.

When to wash

I try to wash my brushes at least one a week. Especially my foundation and concealer brushes. As they tend to have the most residue on them, making them a breeding ground for bacteria. I make it a Sunday ritual along with my weekly face mask and exfoliation.

How to wash

Using my finger tips and nails to get deep into the bristles. I dab a drop of shampoo with some water and gently clean in between the bristles. Depending on how dirty the brushes are, I usually repeat this process until the water runs clear and the brush starts to go back to its natural colour.

Drying them

Once the brush is properly clean, it is time to dry them. Since finding this method, this is my favourite part of the process. I used to hate drying them as it would 1. take ages for them to dry and 2. Risk damaging them if not done properly.

Using a hair tie, I tie the brushes bristles down on to my towel rack. This allows them to drip dry without any water seeping into the glue at the base and potentially damaging it. A bonus is that my towel rack is heated so it dries faster and evenly, and are usually ready to go the next morning.

Quick Tip : If you wear a full face of make up almost every day then washing once a week may not be enough. So I bought an anti-bacterial daily brush spray that i use throughout the week. Just spray it over the bristles and wipe with a tissue. This should ensure that there is not too much residue sitting on your brush for a week!

There you have it. I hope this helps!!

Get Flawless Skin With Kora Organics : Best Organic Skincare Range Around

Ever since I was a young girl I have always been conscious about what I put on my skin and in my body. Something inside of me always told me that the more closer to nature my products and food were the better my skin and health will be. Thanks to this mantra, I now have pretty good skin. People are often amazed that I hardly ever wear foundation. I have even been asked by a few professional make up artists what skincare I use because they were so impressed with my skin.

So whats the secret?

As a teenager I suffered from really bad acne prone and eczema prone skin. I mean shiny, pizza, borderline crater face bad! It was grotesque nd made me very self conscious. I tried all sorts of products and always found that the anti acne lines who promised to give me smooth clear skin actually did the opposite. They tended to suck my skin dry of all of its natural moisture resulting in my skin breaking out even more. So what worked?

From my pizza face experiences I learnt from a young age to look after my skin properly. Your skin is the first thing people see and instantly gives people a perception of who you are. After testing thousands of brands and formulas whether they be organic, non organic, over the counter, prescription, designer or supermarket brands, and I have to truly say that the less chemical nonsense in the ingredients, the better.

There are so many organic and natural skincare products out there which one is the best? In my opinion nothing beats KORA Organics

Why KORA ORGANICS?

Founded by model Miranda Kerr, I was sceptical at first. Is this just another celebrity launching a beauty product just to make a quick buck? After investing in her three step cleansing plan I was happily surprised at how good the products were.

Contrary to other organic brands her moisturiser really hydrated my skin. My skin felt instantly soft and the mist toner had a calming effect that seemed to make my skin glow. After this first trial I decided to try some more products and I instantly fell in love with them. Now Kora is all I use and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for glowing skin.

HEALTHY EVEN-TONED SKIN

One of my all time favourite products is her tinted moisturiser. I was confused at first as it only comes in one colour. I have darker skin to Miranda so i didn’t understand how this was going to work for me but it did. The cream blends really well to my skin tone and gives a very lightweight coverage to even out skin tone without the clog heavy feeling of foundation.

100% made in Australia with certified organic and natural ingredients, KORA offers a large range of products from cleaning creams, to exfoliators and shower gels. The only downside is that their products are quite expensive and are only available online if you live outside of Australia. However if you live in Australia then you can find the KORA at any David Jones Store around Australia.
