(Just for Mom) A Simple Haircut

We all go through phases of feeling like we are in a rut with our appearance. We often blame it on our wardrobe, aging, or chocolate.

The reality is that sometimes we just get lost in mothering. There is always somebody with a need that is more urgent or more demanding. But don’t forget about yourself. Time that you take to build energy and confidence within yourself will also spill over into your family.

A fresh haircut is a great place to start. It is a jump-start change that you can make haircutto energize and remind yourself to take care of you. It can motivate you to put time into your appearance again and it is amazing how it can shed new light on your clothes and accessories.

So the next time you feel the urge to overhaul everything related to your appearance, try starting with a simple haircut. Maybe all you need is a little bit of change and a fresh perspective.


(Just for Mom) Manicure


Your hands give life to your family. They feed, brush away tears, gently guide, fix broken toys, write love notes, pay the bills, put bows in hair and band-aides on cut knees. In the flurry of taking care of others, our hands so often get neglected.

Take care of them this week and give yourself a manicure. You will give new life to this life-giving asset.


(Just For Mom) Accessorizing

A chunky necklace. A scarf. Earrings. A couple of bracelets. Insignificant? Hold on.

Have you ever observed women you consider to be beautiful or well-dressed and then felt inadequate when when you look at your own plain blue shirt and ponytail? In order to follow in their footsteps, you would have to totally make over your entire wardrobe, get your hair done, actually purchase makeup, and then somehow know how to put it all together?!? Or do you?

You probably noticed that these women wore accessories, but it was most likely a passing observation as you took in the whole ensemble. Look again. There is something about accessories that effortlessly exudes confidence. They have the power to magically transform a plain t-shirt or jazz up your look without a major makeover.

So next time you feel frustrated when looking at your wardrobe or want a fresh look, add a splash of color with a few accessories. It might take you a little outside your comfort zone, but maybe that’s a good thing.
