My Un-Beauty Routine…

This morning I had a bit of spare time (spare time, what the fudge is spare time?) Ok so I had more time than usual and Boo was behaving and playing nicely (destroying everything she wasn’t supposed to touch and running around yelling and waving my makeup like a weapon) so I decide to actually make an effort and I put my makeup on, including mascara and eyeshadow, and I even straighten my hair…

I have to say I was disappointed with the results, I wish I hadn’t bothered that way I could pretend to myself that it’s ok that I look tired and crap because if I had the time, and made the effort I would look great. Now I can’t live in blissful ignorance no more. I was going to post a picture but I decided that I didn’t want to scare anyone away.

My hair has broken off at the front and I have a whisp-y halo of hair, my foundation doesn’t sit right on my skin anymore (and I have no clue which one I should go with next) I look orange or I look too pale with my current ones, and I am going to need a lot more than a little stick of concealer to hide the eye-bags.  All in all I look like I have aged 10 years in the past 2 years, (since I became pregnant with Boo) and I look like I have been electrocuted and all my hair is standing on end. I look about as good as I feel!

Oh dear, my usual uniform of jeans (either slightly too loose or slightly too tight take your pick) and easy access boobfeeding tops really just made things worse!!

The sad thing about this whole thing is that I haven’t really got a clue of how to go about making myself feel and look better, I have never been a girly girl and so I am at a complete loss, damn those spare few minutes I had this morning!  Where is Gok Wan when you need him?

  1. I have absolutely been there! Cried about it, even! Hang in there. There will be good days and bad. In the mean time, throw your hair in a ponytail (if its long enough), wash the make-up off, and be proud of who you’ve become. Your little lovely’s mama. When you’re done breastfeeding, make plans to treat yourself to some new clothes-I know I’m gonna!!

    1. Yeah, my hair is just getting to the stage where I can tie it back, so I don’t have to wash it every day now! I do have plans to invest in some bras that actually provide some support and I think that will help me feel better, once I have finished breastfeeding, and some new clothes too, It will all help =D Thank you, It’s nice to know there is light at the end of the tunnel!

    1. Yeah we sure can! I suppose the change is so massive that things aren’t going to go back to the way they were before and that includes wardrobe and makeup etc =)
      It’s exciting to find out what suits us now though =D
