We were surprised with some snow on Thursday morning so the kids got to play in the snow until it was almost completely melted after lunch that same day! The week started off with lots of cold rain and for me, that meant that it seemed to last an eternity, but we have finally made it to Friday!

Sometimes when I’m wearing a hoodie or a larger sweater with leggings, I like to layer a striped tank underneath. While the one I’ve had for years is no longer available, this tank from amazon looks pretty similar to it!
If you are looking for a simple white sneaker for casual outfits, I saw these at Target recently and they look great!

Q&A from Monday’s Question Box on Instagram Stories:
What podcasts are you loving? For a long time I’ve always enjoyed This American Life, Ted Talks Daily, 3 in 30: Takeaways for Moms, First Name Basis, How I Built This, and more.
Tips for dry facial skin in the wintertime? Hydrate from the inside out, exfoliate regularly, and use a really rich face cream!
If I have to put sunscreen on later in the day, do I have to take my foundation off? I would instead look into a spray sunscreen that you can apply over foundation!
Is there a good drugstore option for contour/highlight? I would look for the most grey-based bronzer with zero shimmer to use for contour, and then check out the Milani highlighting powders!
Do you do Botox? No, not currently. I’ve never tried it and I’m also not against it within reason.
Why does my hair color fade on my ends and top layer of hair? That part of the hair is typically in the worst shape and gets the most “work” done on it. The ends of the hair are prone to dryness and split ends, so color just fades off. Similarly, the sun and heat and everything else that is hard on hair hit the top layer first, so it makes sense that that layer would be in the worst shape.
You have no dark circles. Not true! But my favorite concealer right now is Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer
What is your favorite thing to do by yourself? This is a hard question! I like cooking, and I like to spend time browsing home decor stores at a mall by myself. There isn’t something specific that I would *only* do alone if that makes sense!
Are salon products from Ulta safe? Yes! It’s hard to understand the world of expired or diluted products, but I would have to imagine that everything at Ulta is perfectly safe (especially since a lot of Ulta stores have salons!)
Biggest working mom hack? Delegate.
