We’re baaaaaack! The giggles and chit chat are at an all time high as we reconnect after our long three month break from podcasting. In this episode we’re talking about all the ways we’ve changed since having children--from the stuff we swore we’d never let our kids wear and do, to our post-baby beauty routines. Plus, we’re joined by a few C+C writers as we vulnerably share some of the ways our bodies look and feel different since birthing children.

Why the Internet Is Freaking Out Over These Leggings

That one time Ashlee had terrible acne

Root concealer spray (in case your hair falls out after having kids)

Everything You Need To Know About Eyebrow Microblading (Ashlee was intrigued after seeing Natalie and Kristin do it!)

Microblading update from Ashlee: I am so happy with the result! On the day of the appointment, I was feeling super nervous and started to panic a bit. Brett told me as long as I didn't come home looking like a Kardashian, I had his blessing. The gist: appointment took about 90 minutes, didn't hurt at all, my brows look super natural, and my makeup routine is significantly shorter. 

I'll post a pic after I get my final touchup in April! Here's a shot of me in the office with the outline (that's literally an outline - they're not that big!):

I promise it looks a lot scarier than it was.
