Here is my shot at it. I adjusted white balance and then adjusted skin color by number. I very lightly degrunged the skin of the face to remove blotchiness. I dodged the eyes a bit. Sharpened the eyes, hair, ear ring and lips. Using levels I very slightly brightened the face.

This is one try. You will find that others that work more with portraits will greatly improve on my PP.

What a cutie! Here's my go:
A touch of color to the skin, a little contrast, eye brighten, remove the juice on the shirt
I'm sure you'll have plenty to choose from though. No one can resist playing with portraits. ;)

Lovely photo. The background bothered me as well as the stain on her undershirt.

Warmer tones are always headed towards the right direction. Subtle constrast changes also helps. You may want to start there.
