As any new parent knows, it can be hard to even think about being fashionable after having a baby. The trick is to take small steps to find moments that make you feel like yourself. Style expert Lilliana Vazquez — host of Deals for Real on E! — knows this all too well. As mama to 11-week-old Santiago Merrick McGrath, she's discovered a few key items that have given her a lift.
Scroll for the products she's been obsessing over.
"My 'me time' is all about a mani," the new mom gushes. "I've been obsessing with this nail polish."
J.Hannah polishes are made in the USA and are cruelty-free and non-toxic. This color — Ghost Ranch — is what Vazquez has on her hands right now.
"It's the color for fall," she says, calling the line one of the most "sophisticated collections of colors out there right now."
Bibs can look kind of blah, or be plastered in cartoon characters and cheesy quips — not these!
"These beautiful bibs look like little bandanas," she noted, which come in a variety of cool prints.
"I'm more into neutrals and adult-type prints for my baby — I feel like it fits in with the vibe of how I dress. Also the vibe of my house! They are so, so soft."
Vazquez calls her journey with breastfeeding "complicated," but one product made it a bit less tricky — sunflower lecithin supplements.
"It really just helps regulate the thickness of the milk so that it flows nicely — you don't ever have plugged ducts," she reveals. "As a new mom, I'm always looking for things that just make it easier so that I can continue to breastfeed Santiago."
The self-proclaimed "makeup girl" is just starting to find her way back to doing glam beauty looks at home — and she's been loving the brand new MAC collaboration with Rosalia.
"I love the fact that she mixed really cool mattes with also really fun, glittery pigments," she revealed. "I can use the matte all over the lid and then just hit right in the center with a little sparkly rose gold."
Vazquez is also a fan of the collection's lipstick in the shade Nuez Moscada, which she calls her perfect nude.
Vazquez's last fave isn't a beauty or baby item — rather, it's a drink!
"I am obsessing over Mexican hot chocolate," she shared.
Her recipe? Abuelita chocolate with a dash of vanilla extract, cinnamon and a hint of chipotle chili pepper for a little kick.
"Don't be scared of this! I love a spicy Mexican hot chocolate," she divulged. "To me, it reminds me of growing up and it reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen."
