An Open Letter to Moms Who Have Perfect Hair, Makeup and Outfits Every Dayow.ly/f5L7n
And I thought - uh oh - someone wrote me a letter, and I don't think it's going to be very nice. So I sat there and read this: Want2Dish - Stir it Up - Column - An Open Letter to Makeup Moms. Now, I might not live in Maryland and my hair might be in a pony tail most days, but she is talking about ME. I am definitely one of these "Makeup Moms." And you know what? I'm proud to be.
Yes, I take pride in my appearance. I feel better when I look good. I shower at night once my kids are in bed and take 15-20 minutes in the morning to put myself together. I wear heels. I wear make up. Every. Day. I accessorize. I shower regularly. I blow dry. I flat iron. I use product. It doesn't make me a mindless Barbie doll. It doesn't make me a trophy wife or some sex object. It makes me, me. And I like me, lipstick and all.
This motivated me to host a link up. If you are a proud "Makeup Mom" link up below with your best "bus stop" look. Did you dazzle at story time this week? Were you on point at the PTA meeting? Long hair, don't care? Well, put on some lipstick and join The Flower City Fashionista's Makeup Mom link up!
Disclaimer: I am sure Mary McCarthy's post was all in good fun - as is mine. Whether you are a sweats and baseball cap kind of mama, or a lipstick and high heels kind of mama, one thing I know for sure: your kids love you and think you're beautiful just the way you are! So take a deep breath, pat yourself on the back, look in the mirror and take pride in who you see.
