In the mean time, check out my post over at the San Diego Moms Blog. Some of you may or may not know that I am one of their newest contributors and this is my first post for them! I’m sharing a few clean beauty swaps that I have made over the last few months. Be sure to check out the other great posts by our other contributors too!

J + M // SHO BOUDREAU PHOTOGRAPHY

J + M // COUPLES SHOOT WITH SHO BOUDREAU PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Just a few weeks ago, I was looking through the photos I had on my phone & realized that 80% of my photos were of my son, Jax. The other 20% were of Jax and I, our dogs, selfies, and the occasional food photo. I hardly had any photos of just my husband, JJ, and I and the ones that I did have were before Jax. I think the last time we actually had photos taken of us was back when we got married. So when the chance to work with Sho Boudreau came up, I knew we had to take it! I’m so glad we did because we absolutely love, love, love our photos!

RECIPE // SPIRULINA SMOOTHIE BOWL

MICHMILLA // SPIRULINA SMOOTHIE BOWL
Lately, I’ve been trying to improve my overall wellness. I figured I’d start with my diet because to be honest, I’m too lazy to go to the gym right now. (I’m taking it one step at a time, okay?) I wanted to start eating better and making healthier food choices so when Sari Foods sent over their organic Spirulina powder to try out,  I was pretty excited. I’ve heard about spirulina and it’s great benefits so I knew I had to give it a try!

MICHMILLA // SUNDAY FUNDAY AT LIBERTY PUBLIC MARKET

Another weekend, another adventure for the Milla family! Well, kind of. We’ve been to Liberty Public Market before but didn’t really get the chance to enjoy it. The last time we were here, Jax was about 10 months old & teething like crazy so we didn’t get to enjoy it as much as we wanted to. Thankfully, our little redo adventure turned out pretty great!

HOW TO SURVIVE TEETHING // 5 REMEDIES THAT WORK FOR US

 

TEETHING. I know I’m not the only parent that hates this stage. Jax is 18 months and we’re right in the thick of this whole teething thing. We just dealt with his first top molars cutting through and now, one of his canines is coming in. DEAR LAWWDDD! We’re all suffering, to say the least. Even though it’s been pretty rough, we’ve been surviving. Thankfully we’ve found a few remedies that have helped soothe little man through his many teething stages. Each child is different but hopefully, they’ll work for you too.

REVIEW // TWISTSHAKE’S DIVIDED PLATE + KIDS CUP

TWISTSHAKE REVIEW // MICHMILLA

I love trying out new products for Jax so when Twistshake reached out to me, I was pretty excited. While they did gift us these products, these are my own opinions & would never recommend a product that I actually didn’t like. With that being said, let’s talk about Twistshake & their products…

BEST 5 MEMORIES OF 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR // 2018 MICHMILLA

It’s that time of the year where most of us reflect on the past year. 2017 has been eventful for me to say the least. It’s been filled with ups and downs but thankfully more ups than anything else! With 2017 coming to a close, I thought that it would be a good time to reflect on some of my favorite memories. I’ve had so many great memories throughout the year so it was difficult to narrow it down to just 5 but here they are…

A DAY AT THE SAN DIEGO SAFARI PARK

MICHMILLA // SAN DIEGO SAFARI PARK

One of the things I love about living in San Diego is that the weather is always AMAZING (well, almost!) even in December! We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and do something fun. Our lovely neighbor gave us a 50% off coupon to the San Diego Safari Park so we thought why not go there? Plus, JJ gets in for free because he is active duty military & Jax is under 3. So we packed up and headed out for some fun at the Safari Park!

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

MICHMILLA // CHRISTMAS PHOTOS 2017

December has always been my favorite month and it feels like it just flew by! I mean, can you believe that Christmas is just THREE days away and we’ll be ringing in the new year in a little over a week?! Crazy, right? Before the month is up, I wanted to just give you just a little update. I’ve been pretty M.I.A. with the blog and that’s because I’ve been focusing on myself & my family. To be honest, that’s all I really plan to do for the rest of the month. Don’t worry though! I’ve been working on a few things for the blog for the upcoming year. I’m pretty excited about it and I can’t wait to share it with you all! Until then, here are a few from our Christmas mini session shot by Breelily Photography.

MICHMILLA // DARK CHOCOLATE CANDY CANE COOKIES

What better way to start off December & the Christmas season than with a delicious cookie recipe? I don’t know about you but this time of year (besides Halloween, of course!) really brings out my sweet tooth. I especially have a weakness for these dark chocolate peppermint cookies that I’m about to share with you all. They’re soft, not too sweet, & have that perfect touch of peppermint to get you into the Christmas spirit!
