  • Sure do, stained old, faded tops, Jeans that are saggy because I dont want to buy jeans just to grow out of them. Greasy hair because when I do have time to wash it Im just too tired.

  • Hmm, I'm a brand new mom. Showers are luxuries and I literally don't know where my make-up bag is. But I feel really really blessed to be a mom and I have deep appreciation for the life my body made! So, I don't feel like I'm the same kind of stunning I was before... but I do feel I've got a sense of pride that shines more than glamour and aesthetics.

  • Some days, but I felt worn down and ragged some days before I had my daughter some days.

  • LOl Awww I know, Lol I think what it is, we get in to our new routine as parents that we don't have as much time as we would like for our selves. I get up every morning, I brush My teeth/ flaus, I do My makeup and put My clothes on, perfume, lotion, and all of that and earings. But I used to pain My Nails a lot more then I do now, and I used to always go shopping for new clothes, where now I get diapers and wipes instead of some new shirts, and earings, but I will make time for that again. Just not right away. :) I love being a Mother, it's a dream come true for me. But don't forget to take care of yourselves. I used to have My hair down more before I started to work where I work and had My Daughter. But I will feel much better when i get a new hair cut and high lights :)
