news roundup - Vapour makeupSome of the articles of interest to working mothers that we’ve seen around the web recently…

  • Lucky tells you about a cruelty-free (specifically, carmine-free) makeup line from Vapour.
  • The Consumerist notes that, although Target will drop Cherokee from its clothing offerings, for now it will continue to sell Liz Lange Maternity.
  • Working Mother has tips for switching from a summer to fall wardrobe. (They sought advice from Sarah LaFleur, CEO and founder of MM.LaFleur.)
  • The Huffington Post comments on the fact that about a quarter of mothers have to return to work after just two weeks.
  • The New York Times reports on a study about kids’ homework causing stress and tension for the whole family.
  • The New York Times also shares some fascinating (but slightly creepy) details about “microchimerism,” in which fetal cells end up in a mother’s body, outside the uterus, and sometimes never leave; it’s possible that “fetal cells may produce chemicals that influence the mother’s biology, allowing fetuses to manipulate her from within.”
