You know, like second breakfast, or second lunch....
Not sure I'm going to hit five, but here's my obligatory catch all post for the week (yes, I know I had one on Monday, too)
Some low grade fevers and a rough Tuesday night where she cried, like cried like a newborn again, from 3-5am mainly over what seemed to be gas. By 6am she vomited and thankfully seemed happy as clam after that. When she woke that afternoon (Wednesday) and had a fever of 100.8, I gave her some Tylenol and checked in with her pediatrician since I thought fevers should be down by now and not rising back up. She had warned that pink eye can sometimes lead to ear infections, even though her ears looked good on Monday. We went in and she was diagnosed with an ear infection... her first two illnesses at 5 months and my first ear infection as a parent.
Of course, now when we give Sissy medicine to get healthy, Ashlynn requests "ashie medicine", so she gets a mouthful of water. Whatever keeps these kids entertained, looks playing "check up" just got messier.
Root Pretty. I'm sure a lot of you have seen other bloggers or friends on instagram share their love for Root Pretty make up, but I'm joining in. I ordered some samples of the pearl powder foundation - for $2 a pop each - two months ago, and after finding my shade ordered a full size pearl powder foundation (I'm a 3) and a vegan kabuki brush.
I used to Smashbox Halo powder years ago and loved it. I stopped when I was experiencing (hormonal) breakouts that were leaving behind dark spots and needed more coverage. Since having children, two years ago, I pretty much only use my Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage to cover the circles under my eyes and any uneven skin tone. If I'm going out I use a sample of Bobbi Brown BB creme I got at some point. I used the blogger loved Garnier for a hot second, but prefer the Bobbi Brown. Of course, I'm not in love with any of these products. After seeing some of the side by side shots on Root Pretty's IG account, I took a look at the site and figured why not, the price is totally affordable, $15, and I used to love powder foundations.
Well simply put, it's amazing. I don't even use concealer anymore! I wear it daily with some blush, mascara, and my brows filled in. Probably a 2 minute process, which is all I have time for these days. I was a little weary of the brush quality, being vegan (synthetic) and only $12, but nope, it applies the make up perfect, doesn't shed, and is really soft. Big fan, definitely check it out!
