This is very different to my "home" look - which is (usually grubby) jeans, t-shirt or vest, and a fleece or hoody. And NO make up.
I've been in meetings most of today - and not all of them nice ones. Dressing up a bit and applying the War Paint helps me feel able to face the day!!
This is "Working Charlie" instead of "Mumma Walker", my kids always know if Mummy is working today (which sadly usually sparks crying in my youngest). And I must look totally different because when I nipped into the local supermarket for some stationary on the way to my first meeting today I bumped into someone I have known for over 15 years and she didn't recognise me for about 5 minutes! She is used to seeing me with no makeup, hair all over, in those grubby jeans, and with at least one of the kids in tow. And a good deal heavier too!
Sadly my suit, designer specs, killer heals, and hot red lips didn't stop me from getting a parking ticket when the meeting over ran considerably.....
For anyone who is interested, my new lippy is a Rimmel Provocalips which really does last all flipping day with one application, even when I kiss ta-ta to Hubby, 4 kids, and then drink multiple cups of coffee. In fact I had to use baby oil to shift it after a full day in the office. This is one awesome lippy! I bought mine from Sainsburys but you can also get it online here.
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
