Which is why, I am doing this post. First of all, on most days, I stay in my pajamas until after noon. I'm a stay at home Mom, who has a small business. If I do not have anywhere to go, why bother getting dressed?
So this is exactly how you will find me on most days:
As you can see...I clearly have to pencil in my eyebrows to avoid embarrassment (I have zero makeup on), I had blemishes on my chin and I don't think I had bathed in two days (gross).
This is how I "transform" myself back into a human being:
The difference is night and day. As women, I think we are far too hard on ourselves for multiple reason, but when it comes to looks, we are our own worst critics. It takes, Latisse, a face full of makeup and extensions to get me to look like this, and I can still point out fifteen (more like 100) things I hate about myself. Starting with my nose! I have wanted rhinoplasty my whole life. However, I'm not sure I could ever pull the trigger. I'm a 35 year old woman (side note: I've been telling everyone that I turned 36 in April, my husband informed me I turned 35...so I'm a year "younger" Yay me!) who still has to fight off insecurities.
Finally, a few people on Twitter have commented on my hair recently. I just chopped three inches off, because I wanted to revive my hair (after years of bleaching blonde). After doing so, I hated it!! So, I purchased inexpensive clip-in hair extensions from, Pro Extensions.
I bought the 20" medium brown for $80.00 (I had a coupon). I do not wear them daily, but on days when I "dress up," I will clip them in. What is it with most women and the attachment to hair?
I think if we were all more honest (including the media) with how we truly looked, instead of using smoke and mirrors, we could all feel much better about ourselves.
