kristenhowerton Dear adoptive parents: just say no to savior narratives. For yourself AND your kids. Let them be who they are: imperfect, regular, amazing, and unique children who don't deserve a mantle of heroism (or pity, either.) In fact, let's just not wear shirts pronouncing our kids' adoption status, period. 21h
  •   nyxtrous :) There are a few reasons I follow your blog and why I admire your and Mark's parenting, this is one reason. Your children are your children, not accessory/trophies nor possession. I wish more people realized this. 15h
  •   t_livesay Ugh 14h
  •   mjhwall YES YES YES 13h

kristenhowerton "Oh, it's easy to put your old shadows into a palette" says the lady at the MAC store. Meanwhile I've cut my hand, nearly burned my house down, singed several fingers, and ruined half of the shadows I was trying to transfer. 2d
  •   shesgonnalive You would LOVE the convo I had with a guy at MAC after I had the same problem. I also, incidentally, am not welcome at the MAC store anymore. 2d
  •   sarah_reeve @kristenhowerton u r not alone 2d
  •   tiffywade I'm right there with you & I'm a makeup artist 2d
  •   rebeccadoty @kristenhowerton Yikes! At my local MAC store they told me they don't recommend it, I'm so glad I didn't try anyway! But bummer for you 2d
  •   erynsmith22 @shesgonnalive hilarious. I'm so curious now! 2d
  •   whimsyandwise It IS easy, because the shadows have a magnet, however, the single shadow pods, like the ones pictured above, are not magnetic. Only the shadows that are in the 4-shadow case have magnets, or the ones you buy individually and specific to the palette. (Are you confused yet?! ) 2d
