Fashion, beauty, lifestyle and motherhood

"Mothers are women who inhabit or perform the role of bearing some relation to their children, who may or may not be their biological off spring."
In my opinion, a mother is a source of inspiration, a role model. Someone who is always there. People always say that having a child change your life(not in a good way). you wont be able to have fun, go partying and all sorts. You will get boring ...Hmm.
Well if this is what being boring is like I'm all up for it.
Don't get me wrong it was fun to go to parties every weekend, drinking, dancing and turn up to work the next day and can barely open my eyes.. haha..But then I had my baby girl and things changed for the better. I feel like this is what I was meant to be. Motherhood is a mixture of pride and exhaustion, cuddles, kisses, chaos and worry. You stop worrying about yourself and now a child is #1 in your life. Fun is no longer about going clubbing or drinking every Friday night. Being a mom means having fun with your child/children without having a hangover.
You no longer need countless friends, because you have an unbreakable bond and a lifetime friendship .

In the UK we will be celebrating mothers day Sunday 31 March. As the day comes around, you may be expecting the typical flare.. Flowers from the partner, a card from the kids and maybe a gift certificate from the mother-in-law. lol.. But with all this, don't you think something is missing. In my opinion this is not just a day to receive gifts, why not treat ourselves... the calendar states that this is a day for mothers, we are obligated to having a awesome day.. It comes around every year to remind us that we deserve a guilt free day to self-indulge. Its like a second birthday.. haha.
Its that one day out of all 365 days that we should get the day off (although we are still on call lol).

Here are some ways to treat yourself this mother's day:

Buy those shoes...
I don't know about you guys, but my online shopping baskets are always full It's the easiest thing for me to click that "Add to basket" button. Even when I know I don't have the money to spend right away. But this mother's day, why not go back to that shopping basket and checkout that gorgeous pair of heels, or those cute trainers. Just something pretty that you might have been drooling over for a few weeks. I mean we deserve it right!

Go out to see a movie...
As simple as it might sound its something relaxing..I know Netflix and Chill at home can be quite comfy, but as women we feel so good about ourselves when we dress up, but some lipstick/lipgloss on get out the house a bit. Maybe you want to go with a girlfriend, and watch a new release.
Personally, I would like to go and see this new movie "What Men Want" starring Taraji P. Henson.
Maybe you could have a cocktail or two after, catch-up with your girls and have a laugh. If you get what I mean. It's just some "me time".

And last but definitely not least...
Book a massage, pedicure and manicure...
The spa is always such a great idea. Its perfect for relaxing and clearing your head. Get yourself a mani and pedi, after all its mother's day, time for someone else to take care of you. Even if you need to pay for it.. lol.. You are worth it!!
Give yourself the gift of self-care this mothers day. You care for your kids daily. Take a day and take care of YOU!
Mother's Day = Self-Care Day

If you are reading this, give yourself a pat on the back for simply being a mom and doing the best you can. Happy Mother's day to all mothers. If you are not in the UK and will be celebrating a couple weeks from now, Happy Mother's Day when it comes.
I said it already and I will say it again. Mothers are superheroes!!
