I had both my babies while I was 20 :) honestly, I just get up every morning and do my makeup. It sets the tone for the entire day :) also, I get dressed. Most days jeans and a nice Tshirt. Sometimes yoga pants and a Tshirt. Never sweats.

20 is faaaaar from old, but make time for yourself, it doesn't have to be a lot curl your lashes mascara and blush maybe lip color, small things that u find are flattering can make the difference.

Ditch the sweats and at least start putting jeans on.  Simple makeup like blush, mascara and a little lip gloss will help you feel better. Little by little you'll get there. It gets a bit easier as they get older. 2 is a tough age!

It happens! Best thing to do is do baby steps and dont overwhelm yourself by trying everything all at once. Come up with a simple routine that you feel comfortable with if you only have 5 minutes to get out of the door and pamper yourself by going to get something done at a salon.

Hi Daisy - You are so young ! But I hear ya - it takes a lot of work to put yourself together. I just did a post on my blog about a really easy and stylish weekend outfit that I love to wear. Even though I could afford fancier clothes, I buy a lot of stuff at Old Navy, Gap or discount stores like Marshalls, Ross, etc because my kids sometimes destroy my clothes and I dont' want to ruin an expensive pair of shoes or jeans.

Check out my weekend outfit post here

Hello,I hope you're feeling better,and was able to use some of the advice given to you. As,I read your comment,I thought of my 38yr. old DD and myself. My DD,who is always well put together just started llooking like a slob,lol. I asked her,"what happen"she said it was her job. Im to say,after our little talk about self graditude,and self-inspiration she is back to herself. It could be something on your mind or within,that's keeping you from getting primped up. You are worth the extra effort...Happy New Year!!
