After having a child – I completely understand why almost every new mom buys mom jeans, wears baggy clothes, cuts off most of their hair , and hardly wears makeup. Mom jeans are hardly my problem! Since I quit my job and started working from home – my problem is MUCH worse! Try mom jeans, NO makeup, hair a hott mess (and not the cute kind), t-shirts, sweatshirts, your lucky if I remember to change out of my pj’s 😉
So even though I’m not one of those people who really does new years resolutions and I had already decided my resolution was to get my business further off the ground – I’m adding a few things – like for example – to remember that I was once hott. That I’m allowed to spend money on myself for things like clothes and a hair cut! That spending an hour or more “getting ready” was fun.
Tonight I was watching TV with Brian and checking out Pinterest because I’m addicted. Instead of looking at the DIY section I just went ahead and chose Everything to see what everyone else was looking at. As I’m scrolling down I see hott girls, pretty hair, makeup, cloths, crazy boots and I look at Brian and think to myself, “I am one lucky girl that he’s still here!”
If only I was rich and I could get a personal shopper to pick out clothes for me. I feel like after being in a hole (my house) for two years – I have no idea what’s hott anymore – heck I still have no idea what size clothes I wear – I’ve been in momville so long I’m pretty sure even if I went on a shopping spree I’d pick all the wrong things! How nice would it be to say oh hey – figure out what size I am, what looks good on me, and what’s in style and here’s your budget. I’m sure if I did find someone who wanted to do it they’d look at the budget and walk away.
I’m that person that never spends full price on clothes. My sister taught me long long ago how to find the best brands for the best deals and shopping used to be an adventure! I used to schedule the whole day and be ready to drive as far as I needed to go to dig through a bunch of clothes to find what most people would pay a fortune for. My personal shopper would probably cry at the thought of wasting time on me. Oh the days..
So how do you mom’s stay hott, find time to get ready AND shop, and the budget that goes with it? I definitely need all the tips I can get 😉
