So the other day as I got ready for work I preformed my usual routine, I am one of those gals that will not leave the house without a full face of make up. I am one of those ladies that loves polished nails, nice shoes and handbags, beauty treatments and has over 50 lipsticks.
But as I went to put on my foundation I was met with this site.
The worst thing is this was my last back up foundation, I had been using it all week and to be honest was looking a little David Dickinson.
I sat and felt so sad, I looked down at my unpainted nails, my unwashed hair and could not understand what had happened to the woman that would spend £40 a week on looking good.
This may seem shallow to some, but for me this is not just about looking good on the outside, you see for me looking good on the outside makes the inner goddess feel great and I can honestly say my inner goddess has struggled of late.
I know it happens to all of us with motherhood and pregnancy but I am not going to let it happen any longer, I am going to change the dark hole I am spiralling into.
I wont be able to afford or have time for all the treatments and goodies I used to have, but I am certainly going to use my more than I can count nail polishes each week, I am going to find a recipe for some out of the cupboard ingredients face mask and treat my skin and with the few hundred vouchers I have still from my Birthday and Christmas I am going to buy treats for me, not stuff for the house and the kiddo’s.
If you have any suggestions to help me get back to being a goddess then please do suggest them, I am feeling inspired by my BFF Sonia from Finding My Inner Girl – she is really starting a fresh and once Baby Sweetpea arrives I shall be following in her healthy lifestyle.
