recreating me

it's time for a new look....

being a new mom with a new job requires a new look. i swore i'd never let a child dictate my amount of self-maintenance, but it's happened. i already cut four inches off my hair because he likes to pull it and i have no time to fix it.

what kind of look am i looking for? good skin, lashes and lips. that's the minimum. of course i'll still put on the glam for special occasions, but i'm going to create a quick routine that i can do in the wee hours of the morning.

unfortunately, i also have to cut back the cosmetic budget. the sad part is that i'm very particular. it's been a long time since i've purchased drug store makeup, and with some things i fear there can be no substitute. can anything really stretch my lashes like my $28.00 Diorshow mascara? i may have to find out, as much as that pains me.

i also haven't hit the perfume counter in a long time. though i still have tons of bottles on my dresser, i feel that i've outgrown some of it and i'm ready for something new. and on perfume, i refuse to follow a budget. i can smell cheap a mile away.

a new chapter, a new me, and hopefully makeup!

I love DiorShow and use it whenever I'm feeling flush. During those in-between times, try Maybelline's Volume Express, it creates the same sort of dramatically lush lashes. I won't say it's equally as good, but for $8, it gets the job done! Congrats on becoming a mom!
