Soooo many readers recommended this mascara. I’m excited to try it!

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Sarah on I’m taking my first trip away from my baby: “On my rare time away from my kids, I still point out, ‘Airplanes!!!’ ‘Helicopter!!!’ ‘Fire truck!!!’ I was recently driving with my best friend who does not have kids. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a bunny. I lifted my hand to point it out but told myself, No, play it cool, and pretended to be using my hand to tuck my hair behind my ear. Without missing a beat, my friend said, ‘Were you going to point out that bunny? Bunny!!!’ Thanks, I’ll show myself out.”

Says Abbe on what’s something you splurged on that was worth it: “Every year on my birthday I buy myself a bottle of Molton Brown shower gel. It’s luxurious, and the scents are next level. I can make one bottle last all year. It’s my way of reminding myself that, even as I strive for all the big goals in life, I am also enjoying myself along the way. ‘Happy on the way to happy,’ as they say.”

Love you all! Thank you for reading. xoxoxo
