I remember the days when I worked in the salon, I had a reason to get dressed in fun outfits, get my hair all pretty, and slap some makeup on. Now a days I have traded in going to the salon everyday making people (including myself) look and feel pretty to becoming a servant to my slave driving 2 year old all day. I get so wrapped up in doing everything for her, and making sure the things around my house are getting done that it leaves little time for me to make myself look like a respected member of society. When I finally do have time, during those 2 glorious hours of nap time, I usually have other things that I need to do like blogging :). I also will talk myself out of it because it's already 2:00 and what's the point? My favorite excuse I come with the help me feel less lazy is this "I'm not doing anything, so I don't want to waste makeup." I'm laughing at the stupidity as I type it.
However in the midst of my frump, Ava always looks adorable, she is always dressed cute, I try to have her hair done, even though she pulls it out if we are at home. this is
my favorite new do of hers:
So I decided I am going to Fight the frump! That's right I am going to make the frump my bitch. An my blog is going to help me do it.
Me personally, if its 12:00 in the afternoon and I am still not dressed the chances of me getting pretty for the day are slim to none! So I am going to make an effort to get up and get dressed, just like I would if I had some where to be. I'm not saying I will do this everyday, especially on a rainy day when I know I will most likely be in doors all day, but I am going to try a little harder... for myself!
I also think I'm going to start participating in the WIWW link up at the pleated poppy, that way I can guarantee at least one day a week I will lookcute. Also because it will give me a chance to get fun with my outfits. Seriously just because I'm dressed doesn't mean it's fashionable. Jeans and a plain shirt are the usual suspects.
I am a stinkin hairstylist for crying out loud, why is my hair not done! It's not that hard to flat iron or curl my hair. Once it's done I can rock it for a few days. And thanks to Redken's new dry shampoo "Powder Refresh" it will smell nice a fresh to. So I'm think I need to up my hair tutorials, just another reason to do something with myself.
The point is, is that just because we are moms doesn't mean we can't think about ourselves every now and then! HMMMM a " Fight the Frump Friday" weekly link up sounds like it might in order... Would you guys participate?
