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 best under-eye suitcase concealer EVER

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.
