It’s not like me to have a face full of make up, but occasionally I do and it makes me feel so happy!
Motherhood really does change who you are! The years before I fell pregnant with Leo, I’d spend hours doing my hair (which clearly hasn’t been done in this picture 😜) and make up, i’d wear slinky little outfits and spent most of my money of trainers and cocktails 🍸
Now, very rarely do i have make up on (and that is eyebrow pencil and mascara when I do), my hair is left to dry naturally into its curly frizz ball and most of my clothes are hand me downs or 5 years old! But does this bother me? Yes and no! I’d much prefer to spend those extra hours playing and educating my babies and having an extra few minutes of sleep (I wish) and spending my last few pounds on treating the babies and saving money for our future! But yes, my self confidence has massively plummeted! I’m normally seen wearing baggy / oversized jumpers and I very rarely go out alone with the kids, because when I do, I tend to get the ‘oh you’ve got your hands full’ ‘oh you look tired’ ‘I don’t miss those days’ comments... and for some reason, they’re tough! I’d love to have a ‘you’re doing great’ ‘you’re looking well’ comments, but nope, I never get those! 🙃
So for me, posting a picture like this is very different for me and I’m here slightly cringing. For some, this may be vein, but for me, this is a confidence booster! Yes, I’m wearing my cosy, oversized breastfeeding jumper from @stylish_mum1
but I’m wearing it with a skirt... not leggings for once and leggings are my safety blanket!
