Anyhoo... there's lots of news to share and I'm traveling for work which means I have no kid, husband or distractions from posting around. I've found I save my face masks, pore strips and blog posting for after 10 PM in hotel rooms. It's an exciting life I lead.
Here's the best of the webs for our purposes:
