    Default spinoff * Do you still look after yourself now your a mum?

    Personally for me just because I'm a mummy doesn't give me the excuse not to maintain myself. I shave my underarms, legs, do bikini line, maintain and paint finger and toe nails, have a facial once a week except do underarms daily. I dress nice and wear makeup just likei did pre babies. I spend a fortune every 6 weeks at the hairdresser. Regardless of the fact I work, have a hubby that works away and 2 children to run around after I still find the time. Do you?

    I came in to say yes, but what you mean is pretty yourself up, not look after yourself.

    Our family diet is very good, our level of exercise is very good, I don't cut corners with health and safety, but the things you mention are neither here nor there for me. Occasionally I might shave, think I shaved twice last year. I never was one for prettying myself with hair, make up and nails. Becoming a mum has not changed that. I can count on one hand the amount of times I have had nails, hair and make up done since my teens.

    Do i look after myself? Yes, i am clean and presentable. I try to eat well and exercise.

    Do i spend heaps of time beautifying myself? No, i'm just naturally hot (that was a joke btw, in case it wasn't obvious)

    I look after myself the same way I did prior to having children, that doesnt mean I do everythign you mentioned.

    But I do get my hiar done, and shave and put make up. Some days I cant be @ssed, but thats laziness! Apart from the hairdressers, I dont go as often because I cant justify it in my budget!

    In winter I might go 3 weeks without shaving my legs... thats because I dont see the point, not because I have a child!

    I wear makeup everyday - because I work. The days were I may sit at home and do absoutely nothign and go no where, I might not put it on.

    So MY version of *looking after myself* has not changed.

    Yes I do. I have a hair appointment every 6 weeks - a waxing appointment every 3-4 weeks, I wear make-up and straighten my hair regularly. I wear nice clothes - even my work out clothes are nice. I shave my legs and pits - I don't get my nails done - but I grow my own if I'm not playing sport. I like to exercise and eat well. I wouldn't lose sleep over it if I didn't though - I just like to

    I agree with sab.

    I don't "pretty" myself up. I've never been into hair, makeup, nails etc. I get my hair done when it needs to be done, I shave my legs when I can be bothered. I've had my nails done once for my wedding and that's it. I've never been into fashion. I'm a jeans and top or shorts and shirt kinda girl.

    I really don't care how others judge me.

    I do look after myself more now. I go to the gym regularly and I try and eat well most of the time.
