Me: Good job.
So... that just happened.
Best Marriage Advice: I absolutely LOVE this post by Kim over at She Is Fierce. Kim explains that as much as she loves her husband and children, they do not "complete her." I've always found the idea of needing another person to be "complete" very unsettling, so it was refreshing to hear a married woman agree with me.
Best Historical Post on Breastfeeding: I can't believe I'm sharing a Buzzfeed post... but I'm a total sucker for both history and the right for mothers to breastfeed in public.
Best Scientific Post on Breastfeeding: The first article I read was via Jezebel, that summarized a new study questioning the superiority of breastfeeding over formula. This post is a press release that includes quotations from one of the scientists, along with her contact information. While there are certainly benefits to breastfeeding, like boosting an infant's immune system, it's great to see some research that highlights the socioeconomic influence on childhood health.
In other (blogging) news... I haven't had the chance to try out two of the products I received in my VoxBox. I've never worn fake eyelashes before. Since receiving my VoxBox last week, I haven't done anything fancy enough or exciting enough to try them out. I mean, I wore jeans and a sweater to a wine tasting Friday night, no make-up. Why would I bother experimenting with my KISS Looks So Natural Lashes for such mundane activities? I hope to try them soon, but my review will be limited to Instagram.
I also haven't tried out my John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray. I don't know if y'all have noticed this or not, but I have curly/wavy hair. I don't even own a blow dryer, let alone a flat iron. My best friend Lauren sometimes straightens her hair, so I plan to give her the sample to try out.
