I started this blog to try to get myself (and hopefully others) motivated. I have 4 kids under 7 and I stay at home. I didn't ever want to become frumpy housewife, but I realized that I had when I was getting ready to go to the store and my husband asked me why I was putting makeup on! I told him that I was going to the store and he said "why do you put makeup on to go to the store but you don't get ready for me?" I honestly didn't know how to answer his question! Why did I get ready to see strangers but I didn't get ready to see my own husband!!!
I decided that I needed to start trying to take better care of myself. I always felt like all I did all day was change diapers and clean, why did I need to get ready for that? But I realized that when I get ready for the day I FELT BETTER! I felt better when my husband came home and I looked nice for him, I looked nice for my kids and if I had any drop by visitors I didn't look like a homeless person!
I was never taught anything about being a homemaker, I was never taught to cook! I told my husband- who is an AMAZING cook- that the best thing I ever ate before I met him was from a can! I was never taught how to do makeup or hair, so when I found out that we were having our first girl, I was scared! How was I going to teach her these things when I didn't know how. I started to experiment with her hair and started watching videos online, now I constantly get compliments on her hair. I decided recently to start getting these makeup sample boxes so I could try out makeup and see what I like and don't like because honestly, I have no clue what is good and what isn't!
So that sorta explains my my randomness of my blog. I want to review these products I get for all of you as well so that I can tell you what is good and whats not!!!! I want to help other people get out of the frumpy housewife mode.
