Guess who’s out of the hospital?! ME. Honestly, I thought I’d be in there forrrrrevvvverrrrr. Ok, that’s a little dramatic, but it’s the longest I’ve ever had to stay in a hospital. I’ve given birth (via an emergency c-section) and gotten out of the hospital quicker! Having a pulmonary embolism is serious business because hello...

Although my gig as a freelance writer can get hella stressful at times (because juggling all those deadlines along with caring for a toddler can get pretty nuts…thank Jesus for wine!) one of the best parts about it is finding (and testing!) all of the new beauty products before they hit stores.
