This is the time of year when romantic Summer weddings are planned. First on the list is to get THE dress. Next, one of the most important items to check off a busy bride's list is: who will do her hair and makeup on that special day?

As many of you know, once you have children, any sense of modesty goes out the window—especially when it comes to bodily functions. Changing diapers, potty training: It seems like it’s all poop, all the time. Nevertheless, I have to say, bathroom humor is funny. Really funny. So imagine my delight when I heard about The Daily Duty (thedailyduty.com).
I had a blast tonight with the Beauty Launchpad Golden Globes Twitter Party. Allow me to review a few of my favorite looks.
