I have been a stay at home mom for almost 7 years now. Sadly, one of things I let go during this time was fashion. Really, moms. . who wants to get dressed up every day just to get covered in paint, food and dirt? Not me. However, now that my kids are growing older I am starting to find interest in looking my best once again. I have decided that my goal for 2014 is to take better care of myself on the inside and on the outside. This means dressing for success and yes, actually putting on make up everyday.
While I want to start looking my best I also still have a grasp of reality. I’m sorry, but I do not have hours by myself to get ready every day. In fact, I normally take a shower while my kids are sitting in the bathroom saying “Mom. . mom. . mom. . can you look at me. . mom. . is this outfit right?” (while I am desperately trying to see what they are talking about from around the curtain with shampoo running from my hair down into my eyes causing a burning effect.) Make up needs to be quick and effective. I’ve probably got 10 minutes flat to get ready each day before something happens that needs my attention. What I really need is something that will look good for running errands, grocery shopping and after a full day of play would still look good for those impromptu dinner dates or lunch with friends.
To my amazement, I was recently asked to be a Conde’ Nast Influencer and try out a new look with Mary Kay® products. Really, me?!? I was ecstatic. This fits right in line with my goals set and the products sent to me were fabulous. Such luxury!
What fun I had! The look was perfect on me and I was able to wear it all day long while taking care of the kids and it still looked great that evening when I headed out to enjoy The Nutcracker in the live theatre. This look could take me from morning to night with just a little application of the Firecracker lipstick. I am so happy!
