Makeup Monday: Mini Lipsticks

If you’re looking for a little something nice for a mommy present for yourself, do note that Nordstrom is now selling Little MAC Lipstick. Each one is only $10 (with free shipping, as always), and there are nine colors available, from Russian Red to Twig to Velvet Teddy to Whirl. Right now they’re 15% off, bringing them down to just $8.50, so it’s a good time to stock up. Little MAC Lipstick

So I seem to be a litttttle obsessed with green shoes lately.  And for $54, these are definitely in my wheelhouse. (Fun question: what are your favorite ‘fun’ sneakers — so many brands with staunch loyalty, such as Converse, Vans, Superga, Tretorns, Keds, etc…) Have you found that you wear them LESS or MORE since becoming a mom? Did you favorite sneaker brand change? Chuck Taylor® ‘Shoreline’ Sneaker

Family Friday: Non-Skid Kids’ Socks

If you’ve bought little boy or little girl socks that have the little rubber grips on the bottom, you may have noticed that they can be kind of hit or miss online. I have to say that we’ve had nothing but good luck with Old Navy and Gap brand socks. They stay on, they’re affordable, they don’t get holes, and they hold up to machine washing. So if you’re looking for something easy to buy online, I definitely recommend these socks. Many are on sale right now, too — for example, a 6-pack of non-skid crew socks for toddler/baby (pictured) is $8. Old Navy Non-Skid Socks

Presenting: More Tags for Our “Week In the Life” Series!

Something I’ve been meaning to do since starting our popular “Week in the Life of a Working Mom” series is to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. So to that end, we’ve started adding more detailed tags to the posts, and we’ve got a much better category page. That way, if you want to read about, say, working moms with kids in daycare, you can easily find all of those posts. (We’re hoping to create something far superior to simply searching for “daycare,” which would bring up our regular advice posts on daycare, all posts in which we’ve used the word daycare, and comment threads containing the words daycare.)

When you click through to Week in the Life, you’ll see all the tags laid out…

Budget Thursday: Seamed Colorblock Dress

Society New York is one of Amazon’s fashion brands, and this machine washable dress looks like a great workwear piece. I like that it’s not too fitted — you don’t need to be Spanx-ed to within an inch of your life to wear it — but the shape is still flattering. I like that the colorblock pattern (also flattering) isn’t too Star Trek–y, as well. It’s gotten a couple of reviews so far, which are positive, and it’s eligible for Prime. Seamed Colorblock Dress

Here’s a plus-size option at Nordstrom.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Stay-Black Classic-Fit Ponte Blazer

Banana Republic has an interesting line called Stay-Black, which has special technology designed to resist wrinkles and fading, and is machine washable. There are a number of options, including leggings and dresses, although they seem to be getting pretty low reviews across the board. Still, it’s interesting to note that Banana Republic has this line — and it seems that most of the negative reviews have to do with sizing. So keep an eye out for sales, because I have a feeling they may be going on sale often. This blazer comes in sizes 0–16 in black, navy, and charcoal and is $148. Stay-Black Classic-Fit Ponte Blazer

Here’s a ponte blazer in plus sizes that’s also wrinkle-resistant and machine washable.
