As I rapidly approach The Fabulous 4-0, I’ve finally come into my femininity. I was never the girl who thought much about make-up or too deeply about fashion. NO I didn’t run around in grunge for most of my adult life, but as my dress sense was mostly smart, neat, classic and practical sometimes juvenile depending on my mood. I focused on a good skin and hair care regime, healthy lifestyle and dressing to fit the occasion. Now that I have a baby girl and I read fashion and beauty blogs I want to up my game just a little. Here are my top 3 beauty finds for the on the go mum.
Still being realistic, I don’t have lots of time to put on a face or twist and twirl my hair. I have an active toddler and I do like to get down and dirty with him. HOWEVER… I’ve taken to shopping for little beauty and fashion treats that make me feel that I’m in the world again and not under a rock. Also as an older mum, I feel the pressure to look my best for as long as I can. Teenagers can be cruel. I wouldn’t want to make my kids cringe when that phase of their life comes around. For my hair, I am currently using Orofluido Oil.
Nail Polish Stripes By Sally Hansen
I’ve tried my fair share of nail colours, pre-children. I used to change colours 2 -3 times per week. I no longer have the time to spare for such a beauty indulgence but thanks to nail wraps I can be in nail trend within minutes! Then, back to napping changing without the worry about smudging. I’ve only tried one brand so far, the Sally Hansen Salon Effect.
