realistic mommy makeover

My neghbor's newest role in my life is that of fashion stylist! After six months, i was still wearing maternity clothes, no makeup, and generally looking bad.

well, i am in the process of getting a makeover, thanks to an unexpected paycheck that arrived in the mail last week.

Elayne, my neighbor, had been doing my eyebrows and hair for some time, in exchange for photos of her family. (isn't bartering great?) now we have entered into new territory, makeup and clothes.

it has been such a boost to me to start looking good after giving up on my appearance during my pregnancy, then starting to care again, only to find out how outdated my style had become.

She has helped me to look nice by spending under $100 and less than five minutes a day

my best advice to new moms: once you've caught up on your sleep, buy a new lipstick, a few new shirts, and get your eyebrows waxed. you can do all this stuff with your baby!

note: the lipstick pictured is the new one i have, mac myth
