As a stay at home mum I especially felt little need to put make up on or wear nice clothes, it was just me and Littlelish hanging out, whatever. But as I was less and less bothered about my appearance (combined with relationship problems) my self-confidence began to slip. There were more important things in life now I was a mum, I needed to spend my time doing important mum things not preening and pampering myself, didn’t i?
The answer is yes and no. Yes I needed to do important mum things but I really needed to make time for myself as well. Sure looking good on the outside may be superficial but the truth of it is it makes us all feel better about ourselves on the inside. We feel proud and happier.
