Because you guys asked, a quick postpartum beauty-tip for my fellow "breeders" who cannot fit into their pre-pregnancy clothes, don't have the time to apply a full face of makeup and are in need of a little pick-me-up: HOT PINK LIPSTICK!
... It's like an anti-depressant for your face. For fifteen buckaroos. I bought it on a whim when I was pregnant and cannot get enough. It makes me feel REBORN! (It's what I was wearing, here actually. Although in the picture, it looked red. Psyche, it's not!) I'm typically afraid of lipstick and prefer Burts Bees (in watermelon) and heavy eyes (for those who recently inquired, I have some old and very loooong eye-makeup tutorials I did a few years back) but time has not been my bestie as of late so I'm leaving eyes bare and going for color. I have green eyes so pink lipstick really brings them out and so long as I'm not wearing makeup anywhere else it almost looks subtle. Kind of?

(and my trusty ERGO where a baby permanently resides.)
Tune in next week when I confess my undying love for a face wash that changed my life. And no, this is not sponsored. I just love me some makeup. And other such things that make me feel attractive in my current state of unattractive-feeling-ness. Postpartum hormones are bastahds.
ED: WWW will be back in action next week. December is when things get wonky in the posting department. Pardon our appearance as we brace for holiday insanicraziness.
