How to pull off being a great mom and look fabulous while doing it!

You hit your teens wearing the new tight skinny jeans that are all the rage. You hit your 20s, looking fit and fab and finally meet the man of your dreams – well, almost! He may not be 6 foot 5, be in perfect shape, dark and handsome, looking like Marcus Schenkenberg, but he treats you well, proposes, and boom bang, you’re married with three kids.

Now, we all know what being a mom is about – snotty noses, dirty diapers, accidents in public and all the rest that doesn’t need spelling out. I will never forget the episode in “Sex and the City” where Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is in the kitchen and her beautiful daughter places chocolate-smeared hands on her mother’s gorgeous white skirt and she simply explodes. You get the picture! 

It’s simply not easy to pull off looking gorgeous when there is so much playdough, flour everywhere in the kitchen, chocolate and mud-smeared children’s clothes for you to wash. Just running around the house picking up clothes and running around after your toddlers takes its toll on the body and it’s strenuous. It also just makes better sense to jump into a pair of tracksuit pants, loose T-shirt and flip flops to get everything done. What’s the point of wearing your best clothes when you know they’ll get ruined?

But then, wait a minute. What about you? What about the vivacious woman that existed before giving birth who enjoyed shopping for clothes with friends and following the latest trends – or not. What about all those makeup tips and tricks you learned to make you feel pretty. 

This should not be lost just because you’re a mom.

So what to do?

  • If your hair is driving you crazy and all it ends up looking like is a bird’s nest everyday go treat yourself. Get a serious cut that you know you will enjoy wearing. Get a color shampoo, a Keratin treatment and blow-wave, it will automatically make you feel like a million bucks and your hair will be easier to manage. If you notice your hair has fallen out since having children Research Verified’s Hair Growth and  Hair Growth Biotin was made just for you!
  • Don’t stop wearing makeup! There will be many times during the day that you will be looking at your reflection – like all the million times wash your hands in the bathroom peering at yourself in the mirror.  Be proud of the woman that is staring right back at you. Feel good about the way you present yourself to the world – even if it is just to your exceptionally non-judgmental (bless them) children and your husband. Of course you want to keep that spark alive and feeling more beautiful will lead to more confidence. If you feel like your skin is looking dull and needs added assistance looking younger, take a Phytoceramides supplement. This Research Verified review will give you more insight into this. 
  • Forget about the dull grey tracksuit pants and go invest in some gorgeous leggings. There are multitudes of different brands and colors out there. Choose a bunch of your favorite and match with a nice fitting T-shirt. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just nice fitting and makes you look great! 
  • For shoes comfort is key. All the major brands like Nike, Reebok, Adidas and Puma have such gorgeous choices of footwear these days. Bright pinks and luminous yellows cascading the shelves of sports shops. And if not a sport shoe go for ballerina pumps. If you have to do with flip flops you can buy stylish ones with sparkly, fake diamonds on the straps and sandals reminiscent of Roman times. 

At the end of the day you will feel better about yourself if you make sure you are not totally forgotten. And while it may not be quite like it once was, there are some things you shouldn’t’ let slip – afterall, you are so worth it! You give and you give and you give. You give so much sometimes you get lost in your giving and forget about yourself. You’re a mom, in fact a “Wonder Mom”, you are proud of your children and make sure they look great everyday. Why not invest time in yourself and make sure you look and feel beautiful, too?
