The Big Boo Cast, Episode 135

So once again the sound for me (Sophie) is horrible, so I am picking up on the subtle hint that perhaps I need a new microphone. WHY ARE YOU SURPRISED. But actually I don’t need a new microphone because sound is fine on ads, just not when Melanie and I record. I don’t even understand. WHO AMONG THEE IS TECH-Y?

Subpar audio aside, we thoroughly enjoyed catching up in this episode. We talk about college baseball, Melanie’s newfound career as a stencil artist, Alex’s 16th birthday, and How Is It Possible That Our Kids Are About To Drive. We also discuss an exciting (for Mel) new skincare option and how we’re both a little socially awkward right now.

All that to say: good times aplenty. Hope y’all enjoy!

  1. My favorite topical Vitamin C is one recommended by my dermatologist. It’s by Revision Skincare and is their 30% vitamin C lotion. It’s easy to apply and is one of the strongest concentrations available. Also, this one is very stable as it’s in lotion form and in a dark opaque bottle, so it won’t lose its strength as easily as serum or lotion is a non-opaque bottle. It’s pricey but a little goes a long way and the results are worth it.

  2. Thank you so much for the slider recipe. I made them for the third time tonight, and my fellas just love them!! :)

  3. Can u fix the resurfacing product link please 😊
