The way I do my hair, make up, and how I dress myself each morning hasn’t changed much since becoming a mom.  Which maybe means I’m lazy in this department.  Though I’d say from the early days of new motherhood, that yes, these days I am looking a little less disheveled.  But in general, I’ve been pretty low maintenance for a long while.  Heck I didn’t even have a  hair dryer when we lived in Switzerland… because I guess I just wanted more room in my suitcase for … I don’t even know.  And honestly when I look back at pictures I question my decision to not either bring a hair dryer or you know buy one there as other countries do indeed sell hair dryers.  I digress, obviously and always.  Soooo blow drying my hair – has never been an everyday or even every week thing.   Unless I am going to something- date night or otherwise, my hair just doesn’t get blown dry.  And when I do people always say “what’s different?!”  or “your hair looks good” … So you’d think that would encourage me.  But, nope.  Pony tails, hats, braids, just basically looking a little homely always get me by.  My make up routine takes under five minutes on a day to day basis.  Which is BB cream, concealer (my-always-ever-since-i-was-born-dark) under eyes, blush, eye liner on top lid, mascara, and some lip stick.   
Now back to the hair – I have been loving the beauty counter’s shampoo and conditioner!  I normally have trouble with natural conditioner not really doing much when I go to comb my hair but after using their conditioner for over a month it’s been so much easier. I just comb and let it dry while I run errands, etc. during the morning.  And it usually lands back in a pony tail because I just don’t love hair on my neck!  I really wish I had the guts to chop all of my hair off.  Though I hear that’s more time intensive, so maybe not.  More digressing!  And then lastly my clothes hasn’t changed much – when I was nursing, a little of course.  And now that I’m not nursing it’s just business as usual for clothes.  And lately this has been my mom uniform. Printed slacks or white jeans, tunics, and a hat.  And if we’re heading to the beach – just the tunic, my suit, and a hat!  I’ve always loved items doing double duty in my wardrobe, so naturally I love tunics.  So there’s a bit of a run down of my mama “beauty” routine.  Happy monday after Easter!!
