MILF-y Goodness

So I was feeling not completely horrendous looking this morning.

Somewhere in the house where I wasn't, the kids were blessedly occupied (juggling knives? who cares? they were quiet) so I mucked around with my make-up a little bit longer than usual. Did a few fancy tricks with illuminator and whatnot. Felt kinda cute and so reeled off a couple of self-takens. As you do.

Not completely horrendous

You would not believe how the dark shadows under my eyes have been disguised by the magic of light throwing illuminator! Would not believe

So I was feeling semi-adorbs.

It wasn't until I admired the pictures a little more closely that I realised a newly birthed mother can never truly hide her day job.

Do you see it

 

For those of you that didn't catch it…

How about now

 

Yep, that's right.

 And just on a deeply vain side note, do I need a fringe or what?

That's one hell of a forehead….

I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    LOL! Oh I remember those days. I thought I would never leave the house without puke on my shoulder and chewed cookie hand prints on my jeans.

    BTW You’re gorgeous!

    I have trouble believing that you could ever look anything other than lovely.

    PS I’m jealous of your evolving eyebrows. I’ve been trying for years to grow mine thicker, but the overzealous plucking I did in the 90s seems to have shaped them permanently. I worry the thin brows age me… when will the 90s be back in fashion?

    You know it’s time for a fringe when you have wrinkles on your forehead, and you have none! You look gorgeous! ps I recently got a fringe 🙂

    Oh, stop! I am actually incredibly paranoid about my mad scientist eyebrows right now but who on earth has the time or inclination (read: spare fifteen bucks) to tend to them?

    Oh, you love! As if I couldn’t stand to hear you whisper those sweet nothings in my ear all day long.

    As to the fringe, I have had many over the years and always grow them out due to the fact that I cannot be bothered to style my hair on a daily basis which a fringe really demands. My hair really is my downfall. That and cake. Sad face.

    Oh, you sweet woman and your compliments. You are welcome here any time!

    Fringes are awesome. My ability to style them…not so much.

    Two days ago I randomly ended up in a show shop trying on – wait for it – shoes, and as I was parading in front of the mirror in said shoes, I noticed I had a patch of ‘insert name of whatever my youngest son had for breakfast here’ right near the crotch of my pants.

    I bought the damn heels anyway.

    And thank you! xx

    You? Can write me a comment any time. Thank you. xxx

    As to the eyebrows, second comment in one post – I am now officially paranoid. I know, I know, you were complimenting me but you don’t realise it’s less an evolution as it is a lack of personal maintenance. Although I have been reading that thin eyebrows are ageing and that we should all stop the manic plucking.

    The truth is I desperately wanted my eyebrows to stay plucked like yours have but they always grow back. But my years of overzealous plucking have left them patchy. Like a hedge with gaping holes in it. Pretty.

    Oh Julie, my forehead is so lined – my face is stupidly expressive. In fact, an employer once told me I’d have terrible wrinkles on my forehead because of it.

    I am an excellent candidate for botox.

    How are you finding the fringe? Do you love?

    Your eyebrows look perfect from where I’m sitting! Like I said, jealous.

    I can count on one hand the times I’ve plucked an eyebrow hair in the last decade, and yet they refuse to grow. Not fair. As for stray hairs elsewhere on my face and body that require plucking? Another story altogether…

    And a MILF you are. You have such caring eyes and a sweet smile. How do you hold on to that. I get sooo stressed with my daughter some times.

    Oh, thank you, Mili! How gorgeous of you to write these lovely words.

    I get veeeeery stressed, don’t you worry about that. And I write about it, too! No pretending here. But I think I am feeling very complete and blessed at the moment with the arrival of our daughter who is also our last baby. I have a sense of contentedness I just can’t explain. But not all days are diamonds, believe me!

    Thanks again for commenting and how much do I love your name? Gorgeous. xx
