Yesterday I had a conversation with Karl about personality traits we inherited from our parents, what Emerson has inherited from us.

Beauty

By Lexa Lemieux The past several months I have drastically revamped my makeup routine. I had been doing the same things for years. Unfortunately, the same old was not working for my changing face.
