Are you this way?....

Strange like me, before I had my babies I used to care about how I look you know (makeup, hair, clothes). Now it's like I still do it but only on special occasions, I am more like (no makeup, glasses and my hair in a ponytail or bun). But the part that gets me is when I am talking to someone (even though I know this I should have put on alittle color on my face) I don't want them looking right at me. I just want to ask a question and get my answer and go. But nooo they make along conversation and I am stuck half ass listening to what they are saying because I am wondering if they are even noticing on how I look at the same time.

  • You are not the only one. And in case you haven't noticed, you only see people when you don't look your best. When you get all pretty, no one is to be found. lol. My child always looks nice and I feel that his appearance reflects how I would look if I had that extra time for me only.

  • When I'm at home I usually don't do my hair or makeup, but I ALWAYS put makeup on when I leave the house for the exact reason you are talking about above! LOL. I don't like people to "see" what I "really" look like. lol... Even though they are strangers and I should care more about what my hubby thinks of me. I just recently have decided to do my hair and makeup every day though. I feel so much better about myself when I do.

  • when im in my sweats, i hate stopping to talk to pple anywhere even strangers.

    my makeup and hair dont matter if they are examining every wrong thing about me, but its just what im wearing is what bugs me.
