Being a busy mom, I tend to put everyone else before myself. My kids eat first, I’m forced to watch countless episodes of Spongebob which I’ve already discussed, they’re usually cleaner than I am, and they dress better, too.
Motherhood is gross, apparently.
It’s not quite as bad as it used to be, though, when I’d walk around for hours with spit-up on my shoulders. I’m still a busy mom, but my kids are getting older. Thus, I’m slowly acquiring more time to put into myself again. This means I’ve actually worn mascara more than once this year.
It’s been twice, if I’m being honest. But that’s still an improvement!
I’ve never been a big makeup wearer, save for those times in high school when I was experimenting. And what a terrible experiment that was. Yikes! I do like to smell good, however. With the vast selection of discount perfumes at Beauty Encounter, that’s easier than ever!
Fragrances don’t have to cost a fortune. There are so many top-name perfumes out there out there at low prices that a good scent, I prefer more fruity than floral myself, doesn’t need to be an extravagance. It should be a necessity, actually. Especially for us busy moms who don’t have a lot of time to spare, because it really doesn’t take a lot of time to take just a moment for ourselves.
Mascara every now and then is nice, but a lovely scent also makes me feel good and immediately brightens my mood. Even on those days when I didn’t get a chance to take a shower. Thankfully, we’re out of that stage now, but I’ve definitely been there.
