Spring is in the air, flowers are blooming and we can smell that the end of year is near.
Like me, I’m sure that many of you are beginning to feel the pressure to achieve the goals you set out for yourself at beginning of the year. We shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves if we don’t get to achieve each and every one of those goals. Things change, life happens and priorities shift.
It also doesn’t mean that we should give up – so perhaps the start of this new season is the time to take stock of what we would like to realistically achieve. For me, I’m keeping things simple and focussing on what’s going to make me happy!
If you’re a busy Mom like me, your time is limited – especially in the mornings, trying to get the whole family ready for the day ahead. I’m really not a high maintenance gal when it comes to make-up, but I still like to look and feel pretty – so I make a bit of an effort to look “MY best” every day.
But time is of the essence and it’s almost impossible to spend a lengthy time getting myself ready in the mornings as I have 2 little ones hanging on my dressing gown, for one reason or another.
So I am always on the lookout for hair and beauty products that can save me some time, but also give great results. Of course, I still want to look good when I leave the house in the mornings and not like Alyssa or Aidan done my hair and make-up!
So with that in mind, I thought I’d share some of the products that have done exactly that for me over the last few months – tried, tested and loving!
It’s been a while since I’ve given an update on the Motherhood front! Four months ago to be exact. A whole season has passed and as much as I love Winter, I must say I am looking forward to the warmer season (with some rain of course).
With just a third of the year left, I can almost taste that summer holiday vibe – well not quite, there’s still quite a bit to achieve and get through in 2017. That leads me to Aidan’s update…
It’s that time of year again where you can feel that year-end rush approaching. People are scrambling and putting the pressure on to make the most of the last few months of the year. My body is certainly feeling it. It’s been a busy year thus far and I know my body is run down as I’ve been getting the flu so often. From work schedules to school runs and extra-murals, there’s hardly any time to just sit back and relax these days.
