I have two daily beauty mantras:
1. Always wear a smile. AND
2. Always get dressed in real clothes - no sweats, and definitely no PJs!
Mantra #1 is easy these days. With four cuties filling my house, how can I look around and frown. #2 Mantra is a little more difficult. It would be easy to stay in comfy sweats and PJ's all day. After all, I'm constantly wiping baby spit-up off my clothes, sitting on the floor, and who's going to see me doing laundry?! My answer is Me! I find if I take time to put a cute shirt and jeans on this bigger than pre-pregnancy body - I feel better and more likely to have a better attitude... which makes smiling even easier!
If I have extra time I go to my hair. Instead of combing it out and pulling it back - I'll do this braid which stays all day and I don't have to be reminded that I may not have washed it that day! The last thing I do, which used to be my first - is make-up. It goes on much later in the day or not at all.
SPT stand for Self Portrait Tuesday. A very creative Ms. Lelly at Amuse Bouche (click here) has put together a fun way for us mom's to chronicle our daily lives through these self-portrait challenges. Join in the fun!
