"Anyone else. Else or you know, because by then I had had my biological children to kind of in the middle of all of that, and he would say you know I. Don't look like my siblings. Are you all match and I don't and I found that really heartbreaking so I was really glad to be able to give him a sibling that he can relate to in that way. What kinds of discussions have you been having in your home about race about the police since the police killing of George Floyd? Our conversations haven't changed on that as much because we were already having them and I think that's probably true for most families. with black children. It almost is is like we're watching the world. Catch up with what we already knew to be true, which is that there is intense bias against black men and intense violence at the hands of police officers, not every not every police officer. About very disproportionately and so we have had those conversations since the boys were much younger of just. What do you do when you're pulled over? And how do you interact with police officers? And what do you do if you feel? You're being accused of something. You didn't do and the thing that our conversations always lead back to is. Coming home safe is the priority that's the priority, and that has to be top of mind in those situations and any interaction with law enforcement. It's confusing because. In, life in general were were most parents are giving kids. Messages of stand up for yourself and be bold and be assertive, but for parents of black children we then have to say, but but right like but in these situations. Don't people'd don't be assertive. Be Compliant, you know. Listen to instruction. If. You're being accused of something that you didn't do just be kind. It's a tough balancing act of wanting our kids to be able to be who they are and be themselves, but at the same time wanting to protect them in these interactions. Have, you had friends or even strangers. White people who are overeager and trying to be Allah is with you in your decision to adopt black children and to have a multi-racial family. Where I've really noticed the overeagerness is friends or teachers really wanting me to understand that their kids don't see race or that. Other kids don't see race, and so an example of that as I can't even tell you how many times apparent has told me like you know Sally was just talking about you. Know your kids and like she didn't even notice that they were a different race or she, you know. A lot of parents want to talk to me about like how their kid doesn't notice. As if that is you know some proof that racism is over and. That's always a little bit frustrating because I. Think I think his do notice color i. Understand genetics or they may not, you know they made it understand race as a construct But they certainly understand collar, and they will certainly understand inequity. As they grow up. So I think that's the way that I. see that manifest or teachers you know me telling a story and saying you know I think that you know. This topic is a little awkward for my son, because he's the only black student in the room. And how are you going to deal with that? And then a teacher? Saying well, you know none of the kids you know. None of the kids noticed out or racism has to be taught. I hear that a lot, too. Which I think is you know I don't know if that's true anymore? I actually think that kids can. You know can be xenophobic. Just on their own They can exclude kids that aren't the same gender. They can exclude kids who were classes. They can exclude kids who aren't the same race, and it doesn't mean their parents are racists or glasses, haters. It's just that kids. Exclude, that's the thing that they do. And I think I've just seen a lot of people. Try to deny that that can happen. Does the expression colorblind to take on new meaning for you. Yeah I mean I think I was raised by parents as many people were who were proponents of this idea of color blindness, because maybe their parents were actively racist, and so this was over corruption of like. We're not going to talk about race. We don't even see race like it doesn't matter what color someone is and I think there's a well-meaning intent. Intent behind it, but it's also very hurtful, because if we're perpetuating the idea of color blindness, than first of all were not seeing the fullness of other people and their experience, but then second it gives us an opportunity to deny real experiences of racism, and to deny that people of color are having a very different experience in the world than we are. So, I think color blindness is very misguided. Christian Howard and thank you so much for talking with us. and. You know, be well and I hope. Your family stays well. Thank, you.

We kind of said in our family guys. Let's get really serious and really specific about what is hard right now. What is hurting? What are we disappointed about? Let's name it. Let's put on the table. Let's not start burying this and then try to just shellac over it and then let's really figure out. How can we meet that?

Landon our labs. We're dialing in really hard to every member of the family because we're all really different. You know we've got just so many people here you guys just so many people and and we are all enormous personalities like nobody is quiet in this family. Everybody has huge feelings tons of emotions. Billions of words And so a lot of emotional labor right now not just to figure out what I need a what everybody in the house days is just what it isn't. It's the strangest time in the world. Yes yes and you think you said on a podcast you you live in a small house and you have four kids at home. Yes somebody helped me like who will help me like we live in. A house was built in nineteen eight. So first of all it's just a little old rambling thing and yes We also have to seniors in the house right now. So we've got in college in a senior in high school and so our senior in college packed for five days to come home for spring break and he has not left five days for the staff and so he's here and which is shoved everybody like in every corner right now and in many just managing all those disappointments all those rites of passages that both seniors or missing out on such a bummer. Such a bummer. And this is one thing I told my kids and I'm telling the women in my community to which is jest. I love how my girlfriend? Kristen Howard She's like this is not a good time to sign ourselves up as competitors in the hardship Olympics.

Tools your toolbox that you are using right now and what tools can you recommend for others? Who are struggling her. So do you know how sometimes your friends go to therapy and they tell you what therapists said so you got like free therapy you for paying for that little bit of them that I now get for free. One of my friends therapists told her something last year that she told me it's really stuck with me And it's this idea that we can choose to believe because it's true for every single person. This is like absolutely ubiquitous So we can choose to believe that we are every one of us a very powerful creator that literally. In any scenario we can create something new. We can create some hope. We can create connection. We can create joy We are not victims circumstances all the time. We are not.

The Secret to Leadership Is Closer Than You Think with Jen Hatmaker

"Days April seventeen and tell me how you are doing on April seventeenth. Let's see okay. This is a place to tell the truth correct. Yes yes tweed you know because I can always contract two versions if I need to but I'll go ahead and dial be realistic. I'll go down. Okay let's see. I'm four days away from a book released. That means a lot to me and kind of the book that I've well. I don't know how to say this but I've earned it like I earned. Its lessons the hard way by living them and doing some of it. Well do me some of it poorly but nonetheless emerging on the other side wiser and braver and stronger and so it goes into the world on April twenty first and I am feeling feelings about that. I am feeling have feelings and the feelings are excited. The feelings are anxious. The feelings are prematurely disappointed. Because that's the way I'm wired The feelings are super vulnerable. I put it all in there. It's all in there so last night. For example at three in the morning I was lying in bed. My brain was reminding me of several things that I said in that book that I've never said right and I was like well that is already printed so that is a thing. Oh I just haven't been very human feelings about putting a very true very vulnerable book into the world into a world. It's hurting right now. And everybody else's scared and everybody else feels tender and I'm just I feel like I'm holding all the emotions in the world right now. Yeah I as you're describing it. I'm thinking of listeners. Who Maybe haven't written a book but maybe are pregnant right now. You know and they're it's it's sort of this idea of this thing that you've been creating right and working on and you had a certain expectation for how that would come out into the world then now looks very different than it did before as a And not just with you know obviously pregnancy but if people had projects they were working on in their business they weren't really excited about launching or you know college students who were so excited to graduate high school students who lost their prom. Like there's there's a certain amount of grief that is. It's very interesting because it's grief associated with what was supposed to be a celebratory thing. That's around do you carry those and the time I am. We were having this discussion online with my community and one of my readers said this was the perfect word She said you know the thing is is that so many of us feel cheated right now and I'm like you ask the right word. We still cheated. I've got Of course same as you all my kids are at home and in this House that we live in twenty four seven I have to seniors. I have a senior in college and have a senior in high school. And so there's not a person that that I love near me. That isn't feeling cheated in some way and I really appreciate the wisdom that a lot of our leaders are giving us right now which is to work as hard as we can to not Sign up for as my friend. Kristen Howard calls them the hardship Olympics That you're not that's not a good game and we ought not to be competitors into who has it worse than I see this with a lot of people right now who were like saying something out loud where they cheated a laundry list of things like you just mentioned and then the Felix urged tacked onto the end. But I know this is not the worst thing you know. We feel like we've got put our self In the right hierarchy for the hardship Olympics and I just think that there's room right now in our communities and our families With our friends and in churches and companies and colleagues to just be incredibly generous to each other right now That someone says their greatest sadness is that their eighth grade play is cancelled. The best thing to say is that is terrible. And I'm so it still sad and I am sorry and that is so disappointing and I just I'm A. I'M A my instinct sometimes to curb the thing I like. I like the uptick. I like to. I'm blast half full and I'm a sunny shiny tight But I don't think that serves right now. I think there is a place to hold room for somebody else's fear sadness or grief or loss and somehow in that moment it finds a way to move through as a little easier I think when we don't suffocate it we can actually have permission of feel it It isn't quite as long. Yeah we for the first time since we're in week five of quarantine and working virtually at our company and This week I instituted something. I called circle. Time which was basically group therapy See in on zoom calls. I could see people's faces that For for certain people are struggling and I just said hey guys I know this is kind of odd. It's not normally something we would do in the workplace. But I'd like to invite you to just come for an hour and beyond zoom call and all lead out and we'll just literally talk about the hard thing and whatever it is in your life. You have permission to complain about it. And there is not a competition and if your partner's driving you crazy or the kids or whatever like this is the opportunity to about ten people come and you know we cried and we laughed and it was awesome in a highly recommended it for your workplace your friend group or whatever you need but what. I thought was really interesting. Was One of the young women on our staff. Who is she single? And she's quarantine quarantining alone and so she is really struggling with loneliness. Her community was about getting together with her friends or going to church on Sunday for those things have been removed. And certainly you can have that virtually but just not the same. That's right and her sadness was in things like she's like. I just want to hug somebody. Eylau BASICALLY WANNA hug ask. You is talking about this. Which is heartbreaking. She said you know. I know it's not the same because there were a lot of MOMS there who were talking about how hard it was toddlers. And she's like I know some fame and I know that you parents get so much worse than I was like girl. This is not. We are not competing here. It's hard thing is hard to you and it has value because it's yours and so I think it's so why is the council people on this reminder? Whatever your thing is. You're allowed to feel disappointed because they think shoving the feelings away won't serve you. Think that if you can just acknowledge that they're there than exactly like you said you can start to move forward with the acknowledgment not by pretending it didn't happen. Yeah that's one hundred percent right and that sometimes means having hard conversations brand. I had a hard conversation. This very morning Just about managing our own feelings right now plus the kid's feelings plus Sort of work expectations. And you know. Where's the give there? And so I you know the only way we could get to the other side of that conversation was by telling the truth so while there is. Get the impulse to just spit. Shine the whole thing right. But there's actually way more power in saying out loud this feels really Sad or confusing or hard to me right now and and then we kind of we get our power back from it a little bit And that's what we're kind of discovery in our house so we're trying to give our kids a lot of room to just say well this terrible. I mean we've got. We've got all teenagers and young adults. They are not meant to be right like physiologically socially and emotionally they are meant to be spreading their wings and flying right now. That is what they're still doing and they derived so much energy in meaning from their peers. And so and then you add on top of that the the real sincere disappointment of to seniors who are not getting finished like they wanted to. It's real it's so real and so but you're I was thinking about your Colleague who this is teeny little. Tip Your colleague who as quarantine alone and I think so much about how. Many people are quarantined alone. Right now And you know we. We're the opposite problem. There's way too many of us in this house Another one right there. Walking down the GREMLINS and I was on a I was interviewing Dr Hillary McBride for the PODCAST A couple of weeks ago. And she's just incredible leader like just incredible therapist but she was talking about ways that we can even like self soothe and she said that if you are alone in quarantine that even if you kind of take your hands and you wrap them around your own self you pat your arms a little bit and you give your shoulder a little rub. And she's that sends a very similar signal to your mind that you are being held and cherished and comforted. And so. That's what I'm telling every all my friends who are quarantining alive alive hard hug

"Good Morning Eddie. Happy Wednesday just Wednesday just Wednesday April fools is for the birds. Don't play a trick on me. That's an early hero. Right is all of the online companies. Who Usually do get it? We're changing our logo are just like. Hey Man you know we we get. We can read. Ram This era year to do this. You know the room has made its way around my family. Girls can say read the rim. Well when they know it they know. Hey this is this is in a moment. We got to read the room right now. They all fully get like I can be joking and singing loudly. Do we also see that people are quiet in the front. Yeah talking so my Gosh. That's really funny. We started. We broke our own rules where we almost started a conversation before we hit record because the girls coming in today said not not today. They because to be honest they are. They both got this Let's see Luzon Babysitter's club book and Eagles on Magic Treehouse. And they think you're great but that they're one's have great as fishing those books right now so I think that's been the yes it they they are. They read more than I'm sure they've read more than I've read my whole life and I liked but I'm S- slow reader like it's Oh. I'm so painfully slow that I most of my books are audio books. They read so much. That's the the the library being closed has been. I realized like all the struggles of the world. There's no there's no hardship Olympics here Yeah that's right it's like Kristen Howard ten line but she's the one who says hardship Olympics but wait Abba question. Do you think kids read faster? Kids who like to read I will. I wonder if I was a better reader as a kid because there was less going on in my brain meaning. I didn't think about bills. I didn't think about stress. I didn't think about all the things adults think about. And I wonder if that made me a better reader. Yeah you're just freely sitting there. Yeah what else is worried about the room? Temperature apple stuff now. They're thinking about a thing. They're not thinking about thing because they're going to get lunch there for the day. That's right that's right. Plan is nine o'clock dog walk like that is fifty five dancing. Outside Dad's window. He's writing with Anne. Nine o'clock talk boy. Do I have a big update for you. Oh I'm ready. So do we know that? I really like legos. Yes and we've all well you can really go into it. I personally know what I'm not sure. Tsf Quarantine knows how much you like like us. Yeah so I. There are Lego. Builders that are crazy obsessive about it and I'm not. I'm not that good at Lego but every couple of years I get like real ish and not be good at Lagos. Well I am good at it but there are people that can create on their own. I like to buy kids. Yeah Yeah I don't have the kind of like there are people that can say like. I want to create you know this building that I saw and then they create a building. I don't have that artistry but I love like so sitting on my desk right now. Is the Saturn five rocket lego which it took me probably a week to build and it is four feet tall three and a half four feet tall how multiple stage rocket. And so. I'm sitting inside and I just something clicked in me yesterday. That was like I got to get a Lego set. This is exactly perfect. Ellen's been doing and I'm like this is exactly what you need the evening International Space Station. Where our buddy astronaut drew lives? I didn't even know it existed. Its place mall seeing but it's eight hundred sixty four pieces to tell you. It's pretty small to. He's lived there almost a year. Oh I don't have any as ING. Have you started it no? I haven't even bought it? I just saw this. I don't even know how much it is. The singer usually kind of expensive. But I mean I mean that's that's the entirety of the point. I needed to bring this morning about ladies first grownup Legos last week. During my quarantine you did. Someone gave me like an literally. I think it's a thirty piece. Mwana set like a kid set as they sent me like one of my college buddies sent me like a basket of sweet things like a little tiny Rosemary Garden and a bottle of Nail Polish and a thirty piece Lego set of Moana and it was so fun. Do you find it. How did you find the experience of putting together Lega You Know I. I loved legos growing up as well but I probably didn't. I mean we grew up in a time when there weren't really kids. I mean I guess they were kits but it was way more like. Here's a pile of legos. Something with them and so i. I'm still going to. I mean if we're going to do like a score of zero to ten which we need to talk about our scores of how we're feeling zero to ten. I'M GONNA give my lego experience like a solid six point five. I really enjoyed it. I'm still gonNA give puzzle an eight point five. I see so. I'm going to pick a puzzle over legos but if if a friend showed up at my house and said Hey I brought a puzzle for us to do or. I brought a Lego set for us to do. I'd be an on both now. I went to town on Puzzles last week. And I said basically. It's like you know what you're building you know what you're putting together its mooring. You know where I'm going with us. What's the difference isn't isn't just a three D. puzzle. Yeah I just I enjoy making the pieces. Fit and Legos are all shape the same. I like looking for the particular shape. I finished a really hard puzzle for me last week. Five hundred is my number is my Max of pieces. Only because I I think. That's very doable. Amount of investment for me And last week it was one that was had a ton of Blues and Greens and so I ended up having to separate them based on the shape of the piece versus the color. And I really really enjoyed going. Okay the piece that goes there has to outward knobs and two n one inward Knob like one whole you know. Oh Yeah Yeah and so I but I so. I liked the puzzle solving of puzzle more than the zero. There is nothing here now. There is a tiny ship with a WANNA on it in my hand. Yup nope. That's very interesting. Yes I understand what you're saying. I don't know why I like Lego and don't like puzzles though. Shouldn't it be? Maybe it's the maybe it's the building thing I mean. Would you like mutual? Enjoy Egg retrieved. Who LIVES IN PARIS? Did a puzzle. Oh do you watch her in stories any sometimes? I'm very bad on insys story because you don't make comments on things that I'm convinced you would think the funniest thing I've ever done and I don't hear from my penguin pal about it. I don't I don't even make so it's not like I'm like producing them and then being like snug about it also I produce and do not watch very many. I don't think that's a role. There's not a if you make them you have to watch them But joys for starters her daughter Millie when joy talks like Millie and it just kills me. That it's so funny. It's her daughters years old and doesn't really talk but the other week month now joy and her husband. Create Matt is his name. They did a puzzle. Eddie that did not match the picture on the front of the box. It's it's like an escape room kind of puzzle where you have to notice the differences between it wasn't like fine ten differences. It's like solve the riddle or solve the story between way. See on the box. And what the puzzle actually is but it's not hard things. It's things like on the puzzle picture. The drawer is closed. When you create the puzzle the drawers open. And there's a key. Wow Right. Does that sound more interesting to you know but but I guess by if more yes I would be. It's I'm slightly more into that off. Then then the just plain old like you know a meadow with a horse running is all. That's right. That is interesting. I'm very fine. I'm into that same yes okay. Tell me you're on the scale of one to ten. How are you feeling today I am? I think like a six seven. Two seven is rate will go six and a half. Yeah Yeah I think I'm feeling yesterday was good day. Got Off the show and as soon as you and I were done I like lit up. My shoes went for a big long hard run. Just almost in defiance of everything and myself and all of it and came back and of course everybody feels so much better when you work out and I dislike it when people say that because nobody wants to do that At four me four yesterday I came back and was like all right. I can do this and then had a good day at work and felt generally like pretty good about it and we set up a desk last night that more dedicated for like the girls. Homeschooling there had a desk but we met like where like. I have my office where I record and do all the stuff. We range that a little bit so it's just a little less. It just feels a little more permanent and therefore makes it just even ever so slightly easier just just and so we made some of those changes and the like I feel I feel okay I feel okay. How are you? I'm hi I'm better to you know. It was funny as reconnected yesterday afternoon for work and I we both said man. I feel better this afternoon than I felt this morning. And it just is a is a funny thing that we just need to give permission to ourselves and each other that we don't have good days and bad days we have good hours and bad hours. Oh it totally right. I mean news comes out as fast and there's a lot changes and like two days ago. I was at a great morning and then I went to my office and suddenly felt sad and couldn't pull out of it and yesterday still was in it and as the day went on and did some work on myself and my job it. It improved as the day went on. I'm probably like an eight point five. I'm a high. I woke up feeling. Great you're good. Yeah eight and a half is nice. Yeah it's a great. Yeah I feel I feel I today. I my have a bunch of time blocked off to work on the novel. I'm writing. Yeah and so. That's really fun because my I get to do that. We get that blocked off about once a week right now and that's really fun because it. I don't have to look at email and nobody might team is so generous to me of like any you do. What only you can do. And we'll do it. Anybody can do you know anybody. They're very specialized and what they do. But they can't do this part they can't talk to you and record it and they can't write my books you know right and it's also good business. It's smarter aid smart of them to not make you get superbug down on all of it. Because he'll kind. There's still only one person that when you start your own business you have to do everything. Like there's I've done everything in our company at some point or another and so it feels like it doesn't just feel like I have co workers. It feels like people came along and this is any seven talking but it feels like someone came along and said. Hey I'll help you and you will. Okay Nice you're paying them and it's like yeah you're paying me to be here and I'm like I don't care. Thank you so much for handling that and so I was driving to radner lately other day we kind of made. It's like where I work out here. It's like we're a hike. We kinda made a rule on Monday in the company that are physical health comes first and you can finish your working hours at any time. Only because you have to. It depends on the weather right now. You can't go to the gym. You know and so there's just kind of an understanding that you fit in your exercise and you build your work around your exercise and as I was driving I just thought how Lucky Am I. This company keeps running an I am hiking it radnor and it's two o'clock in the afternoon. I just feel so lucky so days like today where I get to write all day and the and the ship will move forward. I just feel like I have out. Punted my coverage and what I deserve professionally so I I get that but also I'm glad because it's when people and I think the closest can actually have his actually pastors that that the to what you do that when they don't put staff around them that help and they just continue to feel like they're a fifty person startup church in a lunch room and.

"Kristen Howard, tan or writer psychotherapist, and you're listening to selfie a weekly podcast about two women trying to tackle better self-care. We're both the opinion that self-care is important. And yet we find it allusive. And while we may have all the info we need. We don't always get there from the silly to the serious. We are taking a vulnerable yet. Humorous look at body mind and spirit, and maybe a touch of the random all my looking at the distractions and defenses EPS from carrying I like shit. Hey, everyone. Welcome to this week's episode. We're going to be talking about hang Zayed's today. Which if you're unfamiliar is the feeling of anxiousness or kind of dread the day after one drinks alcohol, and you guys it's a thing. Well, it's a thing that there's you know, more and more is being written on this. Aims to a real new area of research and interest. And just this idea that drinking can really increase your anxiety. Both in the short term like having a night where you overdo it and in the long term. So we're gonna talk about that in a minute. We're going to do it. But we gotta do an update. I mean, I haven't spoken to you. Kristen since before the holidays, I know it's so true. We have not we have not talked to each other at all. I mean, you went to Japan, you were just an Austin. So I mean, you're just gonna have to give me all the scoop. I will. Well, yes, I took my children to Tokyo. Which was it was amazing. It was a really good trip. But it was really hard. You know, like I feel like there are some trips that our vacations, and that's where you maybe you're sitting on a beach or you're having happy hours in my ties. I know right. And then there's trips that are travel, and those trips are, you know, you are hitting the sights every day, you're in a new city like your, you know, or a new area, and you're trying to fit things in. And that's really what this trip was. It was travel. It was we only really had four and a half days, which is crazy because that I would imagine that we'll just fly by there's so many things you wanna see when you're in Japan it did fly by but I have to say this. I had a lot of people be like that's not enough time. Or like, that's, you know, why would you even do that? And right like I'm here in defense of the short trip. Because first of all, especially to a city, like Tokyo rights insanely crowded. You know, I mean, it's heavily densely populated everywhere that we wanted to see in the city of Tokyo now, this is not true of all of Japan. But in Tokyo, where we were, you know, everything was overcrowded, and the I mean, even walking down certain streets, like Karadzic who street just was crazy. And so I feel like four and a half days was about all we can handle without like losing our crap on each other. Oh, totally. Yeah. No. And and our sleep was rough because we were all in one hotel room. So, you know, the first person awake kinda wakes up. Everybody know. Yeah, you're getting the lowest common denominator of sleep of all five people, and we all have jet lag. So we're all waking up in the middle of the night or waking up type. So we were sleep deprived. And it was crowded now all that to say it was a great trip. But I. Think we saw. I mean, you know, me I'm three I researched Tokyo. I knew exactly what I wanted to see. Right. And we were able to see everything that I wanted to see in those four days. Okay. That's totally promising. Yeah. Now, granted I I had everything lined up by neighborhood and subway style of Cornell was she did I was taskmaster. I was like, okay. We're doing this in the morning, then we have time for a very short nap. Then we're doing this in the evening, you know, Iran US, pretty hard. Yeah. But it was really enjoyable. I I enjoyed Tokyo. It's not a city I would have chosen..

"I am ready, and I wanna say quickly to our listeners this gift guide. It's we we want you to listen, but you're probably going to be listening.

So this is definitely an episode where first of all we want you to go pop over to our website where we will have all of the these things listed at selfie podcast dot com. Second of all if you are interested. I am also going to list all of these items on my own personal Instagram account because I have the swipe up feature. So that you can scroll through all of the items and swipe up if you're interested in one of them that is going to be on Instagram at Kristen Howard Johnson. And I'm going to put that into my stories collection. So that you can see that right there on my profile page. So if you listen to this, and then go, I can't remember. But I wanted this or that either pop over to our website or pop over to my Instagram. Exactly. And we also will put a link in our Facebook group or community grew away to the selfie podcast page where it has all the notes because I I do know when you're listening things like that you like, oh, God doesn't fantastic. And then five seconds later. You've forgotten about it. So this will all be available for you guys. All right. Are you ready? I'm so ready. Oh my gosh. Okay. So I think since we're doing a self care podcast. Let's start in the beauty self-care realm cools we're going to start in the skin and beauty self-care area. Which of course, I mean, I had to like really get myself to get out of this category. You know, I'm like I had thirteen drained on this one. Oh, yeah. I wiggled it down, ladies and gents. I wiggle it down. So my first my first gift that I think would be so awesome. For people that love cosmetics are just getting into cosmetics or green beauty is this lip color trio by this cosmetics. So hostess is a small brand that makes my very favorite lipsticks. I know I've talked about the bell. That's before that like last all day. This isn't like that. These are just your your classic lipsticks in the tube. Everyday lips to everyday lipsticks. The woman who founded this company is like part scientists part artists. So she's like taken all this time to figure out what kind of tones and colors. Really accommodate lots of skin tones, which is really good because everyone knows you've tried like a tube of lipstick at a time. And it's just looked horrible on you. I can honestly say that coasts. I think there's probably eight or nine or ten shades altogether. They all look good on me. And they all look good on people. I know it's very weird. Like, if you're warm, cool, whatever so she makes his awesome like neutral colors anyway. So they have this limited edition lip color trio, which is their top three bestselling neutral colors. So they're they're not bright. They're not dark. They're just beautiful three colors wants kind of like a light pink rose wants a warmer brownish pink. And then like even a little bit deeper Brown pink. They look super beautiful on. And it comes in the set that has artwork by this L A artist. So it comes in a beautiful little box with like, this watercolor rendering watercolor painting of lips on it. It's just so pretty, and it's these three colors that are. Not going to scare anyone off. They're very very, wearable. And just the set itself is so pretty in lipstick is gorgeous. And I think it's fifty eight dollars for the set, which is I think like basically buying to getting one free because they are very luxurious lipsticks. I just love it these colors are so good. And also I'll will include a link. I did a switch post where I switched all of their colors on my lips. So you can take a look at that. If you're concerned, whether or not you think the colors are going to work, you can see what they look like on. Yeah. That is a really nice kind of splurge luxury gift, and I also want to mention if people are like wireless, stick so much..

"That's right. You just pay shipping and handling and this offer is not going to last so tech selfie two. Four eight four eight four eight that's selfie two. Four eight four eight four eight message and data rates may apply. All right. So what's what's going on with you this week and the realm of self care? Kristen Howard tan. Well, sarah. I. I did a thing. The sweet you're always doing thing. I do know a thing. Like, I a big thing. It's actually not that big. It seems big. But it wasn't. I froze my double chin off. Oh, yeah. That's the thing. I did. I did cool sculpting on my chin. Yes. You please. Explain this to me. Okay. I'm going to explain it. Because you know, what it really sounds like more serious than it is it's not like lie to it's not invasive. So here's what happened. So I did it at cosmetic air. They are. I'm an ambassador with them this year, which means that they are letting me try different treatments for free, which is super Jenner says awesome. Yes. Because Medicare there in Newport Beach, they have done pretty much all the real housewives of Orange County. Please don't housewives please promise me that I'm going to. That's my goal. That's my goal. Okay. No. You know me. I mean, I am. Honestly, I am very conservative. Yes. When it comes to things I would do. And so I'm definitely on the conservative track. But yet they're in they're down in Newport Beach. So I went in and okay. So here's what they do. Cool. Sculpting. You can do it on multiple parts of your body. You can do it on your neck. You can do it. I think a lot of people do their tummy. And what it is is this. I don't even know how to explain it. It's this suction thing that sucks sucks up an an area of your skin, and it freezes it, and then they massage it away and supposedly the fat just kind of literally melts away. What? Yeah. So it's noninvasive. Okay. You know, nothing's actually going into your skin. You do get some people get like like, our friend. Did you know that Morgan Shanahan did this and blog about it? Did you ever see that? I didn't. Okay. So she did it under tummy, and she got like from the machine like it looked like a stick of butter where it had sucked all that fat. So you can actually see the fat. Yes. And it froze a stick like that. And then they had a massage. So I was very excited for this like weird. Like. Suck up. But it didn't actually look that weird. But yeah, it was so easy. I mean, I I went in they attached this like octopus suction thing to my neck. It's a little weird because you have to lay completely still. Okay. And I my he was not doing me any favors at the beginning. I I'm going to admit that I had about five minutes where I thought about like calling and calling it off. Of course. Of course. I was like I can't do this guy naturally naturally. You know, just feeling claustrophobic. But that's yes, I having side, but I breathed it down. I sat there for an hour. I they have TV in the room. I watched I love you man, which is Larry us movie. Okay. This is how though by the end. This is how easy it was going is. I was like, oh shoot it's over 'cause the movies not over like, what does that tell like? I was like, oh, I just wanted to keep sitting here and watching this movie like that's how cadre bullet was so yeah, it doesn't hurt at all it just because. How does hurt tugging? Yeah. The part that hurts hurts is that it's very very cold initially. Okay. But you know, once I think that the reason it's not as painful through the whole thing is again, the the freezing actually kind of acts as like an anesthetic. Okay. Well, that makes sense. So by the end, it wasn't really hurting. But the the first five minutes was like, okay. This is really cool..

"The price does and it's just navy q.. And now I'm like, look at me. I'm so organized and all my stuff's hanging on the door. I know. Can it fit all of your products? Yeah, an more and more because sometimes they're small. You have to get a really big one. Right? You have a lot of product line has like the three level, the large one, the bottoms, the bottles in there, but it soon because you can. You can just hang it from a towel hook. Yeah, a shower shower curtain rod, and all your stuff is right there instead of putting it out all over the desk or whatever. I hear ya. I hear you. So you sold me Kristen Howard tan. Well, I'm really glad I have to tell you. Mine is to me a little a little diversion. I went on a trip two weeks ago and I could not find my hanging toiletry bag. Let's and I can't even explain the drama that ensued because I keep everything in there. I mean, I have hair ties. I have nail clippers like to try to recreate might toiletry took me like an hour. I, it was a crisis over my toiletry bag. No, it's still at large leave hotel room? No, it's the weirdest thing I put it out. I set it out for the trip and that you're gonna look around how well? No, it's because I'm in the middle. It's because I'm in the middle of moving everything in my house. Well, you can find your jeans this morning. I, yeah, everything is still in disarray. I'm happy to say I came over and Kristen west dressed, but I guess she had our time finding clothes I did. I can't find anything because I'm I'm switching bedrooms with my teenage boys. Right? So everything is just in the wrong place, but I know people are wondering because we talked about it so much and her remodel looks amazing and look so good. She has a whole second story now. She didn't even have was with walls, so light and bright Mary know you had the issue with do I do white paint in the new white walls, the white walls, and then you change in the color, but now you're back at wide is one state for the record. The white looks amazing. I, you know, I know it's growing on ups. I know we're sitting in my. Bedroom right now I'm not doing what in my art on the wall. I know once you have a couple of pieces of around, it's going to be it's gonna look so much lighter, brighter and airy the the white downstairs, SOGA. I might do an accent wallet here. Okay. Singers to your to your accessing site might bite my lip on speaking of, let's oh, nice segue. I know, isn't that good guys? And that just came to me, like right now. I'm just thanks. Have I talked to you about my bite, beauty guy lit mask that I use a lip mask? No, it's not really. They call it a lit- mass. I don't know. We know lips now. No, no, no, no. In fact, I've always wondered why they call it that this is the stuff I put on my lips every night before I go to sleep like it's just a little tube. It's I think they call it a mass because thick like, yeah, and you put it on a night when you make the still there. Now I'm just going to say right now that I've never had flaky lips guys, never, and it's due to this. I've been using the stuff for like six years. It is so hydrating. We never talked about it. I don't know at maybe we have forgotten. I'm starting to wonder. I always wonder what I'm doing. Thinking about these things like third, talk about this. I don't know. I don't know, but this is actually it's by beauty carried it before. I believe maybe even Amazon, I'm sure, but it is so hydrating and it tastes like birthday cake. Something like I could just eat it off my lips. I love it. I use it every night. It leaves my lips super hydrated and plumped in ready for all the crazy color lipsticks that I wear every day. I love it. I want to try this. Chris try it, you should do it. All right. My time's up the first one is I am literally drinking as we speak. If you cannot tell I don't have my voice. She sounds sexy. I'm little, Kathleen Turner. Sound right now. I have on even think it's a cold..
