I receive a lot of the same question from readers and I’m always looking for ways to quickly and easily provide answers. I thought I’d round up a bunch of the most asked and answer them in this post!
What do you use for cold sores? I have a prescription for valacyclovir that I got from my doctor. I take it as soon as I start to feel the tingle/itch. It usually keeps it away or makes the actual cold sore very, very small. I got them genetically from my mother and so far none of my kids have had one. They can also be contagious and Justin has never gotten one either! Other than that, I put Abreva on it right away too.
What is your childcare situation? Right now Justin and I are tag-teaming the kids which is really great. His job is flexible and gets busier in the warmer months so we’ll just adapt to what we need at any given moment. In the fall David will be in Kindergarten, Luke will be in a 5 day a week preschool, so we’ll just navigate what kind of childcare we need for Emily!
Are you mormon? No, I’m a Christian. Sometimes you’ll hear that phrase used for Mormons as well but we believe different things.
What did you do before blogging? I did hair! And loved it! I worked in a private studio which was amazing and I loved running my own business. I stopped doing hair right before I had David (who is now 5) and dove head first into continuing my blog.
What is your enneagram type? I can’t remember! I get this question a lot! I think I took the test back in the day when it became popular but I forgot and probably won’t take it again. I have friends who are super into knowing more about themselves via the enneagram but I’m not terribly interested at this time! **update: since I typed this I took the test and I’m a 2 wing 3!
What can I do about my dry scalp? Try this new product by Living Proof. I’ve been using it and really love it! I will also use Head & Shoulders from time to time when my scalp gets REALLY dry.
What do you think about the Neutrogena Hyaluronic Acid products? I used them for about a week and ended up having a bit of a break out. It didn’t sink in as deeply as the PTR products, it seemed, and they were generally thicker with a stronger fragrance than the PTR Water Drench line. I went back to the Water Drench!
How do you clean your makeup brushes? All about cleaning makeup brushes and hair tools is shared on this post!
As always, I hope I have provided an answer for you! You can always use the search box right on the side of my blog to look for anything else!
