SPEAKING of getting me.... I'm SOWEE about how my skin has changed postpartum. I have flaky under eyes happening, and dry chin area, and the rest is a weird combo of dry and oily - less than optimal. However, because I've deemed myself a "mental giant" (thanks Kat), and have no problem spending my life savings on various beauty products, I think I have a pretty good combo sorted out. My regime consists mainly of Laura Mercier's face products, including her tinted moisturizer mixed with a dollop of Chanel Soleil Tan bronzing liquid (pricey and delightful, especially when I'm feeling sallow and tired), a shit ton of bronzer (various brands... tomorrow I'm going to buy some more Nars Laguna bronzer because the 7 other bronzers I have going on right now aren't cutting it for me. My husband will never understand, and doesn't need to). And then comes the under eye dilemma. I've been so digging Laura Mercier's undercover pot, but it's caking on me right now, and I don't get it. I'm going to try changing up my eye moisturizer, and see if that helps... sigh... vanity problems.
In life news, my mum just left yesterday, after a glorious 9 day visit, where we sweat our ballz off, laughed, drank, baby ogled, and threw in a BBQ for the baby masses.
