Run faster. MUCH faster.

I haven’t owned running sneakers in a while. I don’t like running. I walk places. And then I got my legs into a pair of runfaster capris (go bookmark www.runfastergear.com.au NOW) and holy moly, I needed shoes that could keep up. These leggings are like rainbow 4-way-stretch magic. You pull them on and THEY STAY PULLED UP.   The double waistband does this lovely supportive thing that makes me look like the babysitter...

The quick road to peace.

I get frustrated easily. Repeating myself, negotiating, cajoling… These are the things that jam my buttons and send me into FURY MOTHER ON RAMPAGE.

I’ve been hanging out in a few makeup groups lately to get some Inspiration and OH the things I have learned. The trick I feel every PARENT needs is this: Bright red lipstick is your friend.
