That Rare Occasion That I Wear Makeup




Being a stay at home mom has its perks. I don’t have to look presentable on any day of the week.

I don’t have to put on a bra or make sure my curls are intact. I don’t even have to get out of my pajamas.

But on days that I do all of those things, I feel a whole lot better about life itself. It’s funny how the right push up bra can make you feel like Super Mom. 

There are those rare occasions that I wake up a few minutes early just so I can have time to find matching separates. This ALWAYS ends up being black leggings and a Black or blue tee. Always.  Then coconut oil on the elbows and whatever Rhiana  fragrance I feel like that day 
(I have them all).  

I even get out the makeup bag! Girl, that bag is like a new world. I skip foundation. I have this theory that if I use it I’ll look old before I need to.

I go right to the brows and mascara. Then a little golden glow on the high points of my face with some bronzer or highlighter (I’m not sure what to call it).  I look like myself. I don’t look like morning came too soon. I don’t feel rushed.  I feel put together.


 Although I’ll be putting on gloves to clean a toilet soon, I will look good doing it! And even though the mail man, and the woman across the street are the only people that see me before it all fades away, I still have that “I can conquer anything” attitude from that morning. 

These rare moments make my days of being a stay at mom more adventurous. Not that I need more, because let’s face it, two days are never alike in my world.
