Now, don’t get me wrong, most weekends, you’ll catch me in my same old pair of Old Navy jeans, t-shirt, fleece, and Dansko clogs. However, being a mom doesn’t mean having to give up your sense of fashion and fun (okay, it’s a bit of an assumption to say I had a fashion sense in the first place); and sometimes it’s the little things that we have or do for ourselves that makes all the difference in how we feel. And no matter your idea of fashion, I think we can all agree that feeling good about ourselves is definitely fashionable.
Inspired by a recent post by Sundry at her Work It, Mom! Blog Milk and Cookies, here’s a list of a few things that make me feel fantastic, no matter what I am wearing or using them with. Sundry calls them her “favorite feel-good products” and that how these particular products make me feel.
My silver leather Michael Kors Brookville Shopper handbag. I can carry it with a suit or with a t-shirt and jeans and still feel fashionable. And plenty of room for snacks and a few diapers. It’s like magic; instant fashion.
My silver DKNY watch. It makes me feel more put together and like I SHOULD know what I am doing. No photo here, but trust me, it's fantastic.
Trish McEvoy Shell Eye Brightener. It's like 4 more hours of sleep in pencil form. It is the best thing I have found to work magic on my ginormous under eye circles. They were bad before I had kids, and now, if possible, they are worse!
Maidenform’s Smooth line of bras and underwear. I just discovered these are they are fantastic. No more “back fat” bulge. Your back, no matter what you are wearing; will look smooth. Promise. The underwear is also great for moms since the waistline doesn’t bind. And bonus, they are not going to cost you an arm and a leg.
Any products by Philosophy. I personally love the “On a Clear Day” products, since, even though I am 31, I still get some acne breakouts (why, God, WHY?). Also, using the “Purity Made Simple” cleanser makes me feel pampered. It smells wonderful and the results are awesome.
Love: Having 2 people leave me comments on yesterday's post! Thanks!
Hate: Did more people read? Anyone know how I can tell if more people visited? Something about page views.
Hate: Husband leaving town for the weekend (we have a house in another state that we are remodeling).
Love: NaBlogPoMo. I have lots of new feeds in my reader. Yah!
Hate: That I'm not in anyone's reader yet.
I spent last night at my parent's house. I was there to relieve my dad from his overnight care-taking duties, so he could get a night of uninterrupted sleep. I've got a post brewing about this; I've got to keep my mind working on blog posts or I'll never get through November.
