    belle, the seche vite top coat contains a very dangerous chemical:

    I think it’s worth warning your readers of that. It’s quite effective but after I learned of its hazards, I tossed it and switched to Revlon’s top coat which works just as well. I haven’t looked back since. I still use seche’s base coat though

    I’m Team Shock Absorber in the bra department…as a 32G, I really need something to be actually effective and it works like a charm.

    I love this sports bra. I’m a 34DD and it’s fantastic at keeping everything in place.

    For weeknight eating, let’s be real: when I walk in the door, I’m starving and cranky and waiting 45 minutes while I chop something isn’t happening. So I’ve just started breaking out the slow cooker. It ain’t sexy, but coming home to a cooked meal is so much better than what I had been doing. And I’ve started cooking on lazy weekend afternoons with a glass of wine and music and putting leftovers into individual tupperware in the freezer for homemade “frozen dinners” that only need a quick zap.
