I try to always be clean presentable with my hair and face done before I leave the house.
Why? Cos my mother always was too busy/tired etc and then was too embarrassed to be photographed. I have only a few pics of us with mum. I don't want that to be me. So I try.
But I do love to be well dressed in dresses and heels. I take every opportunity to be dressed up. Going grocery shopping by myself today so I'm pulling out a pretty dress and treating myself to coffee afterwards.
I do believe as mums we don't do enough for ourselves.

I make myself a priority. I dress well, hair is always done and make on, but that's just me. It doesn't make me any better than another mum. Everyone has different priorities, that's just life. What I see as a priority for me would seem like a waste of time to someone else and vice versa.

Because track pants are comfortable, and shaving is overrated.
- But I ALWAYS have time to do my brows.

She probably would have received better responses if she took the time to ask why some people don't take the time to do all of those things rather than putting them down for not doing so.
I do take the time to choose an outfit and do my hair & makeup, but I also have one child that sleeps through the night, that isn't high needs, that will quietly sit and eat her breakfast and I rarely have to rush to get ready.

My hair and makeup are always done whenever I leave the house, even just for daycare drop off. But I actually wish I had the confidence to be one of these mums that is in trackies with messy hair! I wouldn't call myself vain but I am so self conscious about my appearance and always feel like people are staring at me and laughing at me I wish that I could spend an extra 10 mins in bed cuddling my daughter instead of thinking 'got to straighten my hair!'

I am putting more effort into me lately. I exercise, I wear makeup, I have a growing abundence of dress jewellrey and I try to look half decent. Although, this is primarily for me and me feeling good about myself but I do think it's a positive for kids to see their parents take pride in their appearence. Or course, it's all within our means and we're not too proud to be caught in our trackpants on a lazy day.
