DON’T BOTHER…JOKE….SORT OF…

Get rid of anything white, grey or yellow (unless it is an extremely practical radiation suit) and invest in a pinny to wear around the house unless you like getting out the house with ‘freshly washed clothes’  on, only to realize they have LOADS of white smeg all over them.

GET A FRINGE (BANGS IF YOU’RE AMERICAN)

They are basically like botox. I have recently got a fringe over the last few months and I don’t think I am ever going back, Whenever I pin it back I am horrified by the haggard face with wrinkles and tired eyes. pop it back down and I look and feel like a spring chicken. Also, if you’re feeling a bit boring it’s a great way to update your look without anything drastic. From Crystal Meth advert face to normal person in two seconds!

DYE YOUR HAIR

Everyday styling is not possible unless you have some sort of nanny but I’m sure most people can fit dying their hair once every few months. If you have an amazing hair colour it can make you feel at least a little bit like you might still be a bit cool.

If the regrowth is  going to get to you try balayage/ombre or something that won’t need so much upkeep.  I wouldn’t dye your hair if you’re pregnant as it can go weird colours because of the hormones.

DON’T GET A HAIRSTYLE THAT REQUIRES STYLING EVERY DAY.

It will just piss you off. Keep it long so you can tie it up or short and easy

GET RID OF YOUR GOING OUT (IN THE WORDS OF MICKY FLANNIGAN OUT, OUT, I MEAN) CLOTHES.

Or put them in the loft or under the bed.  Unless you happen to go out all the time. Riffling through sequins and sparkles when all you want is your comfortable gap chinos is ANNOYING. and yes I do like gap chinos! what’s happened to me!

Or you can just embrace it all gracefully…

  • I think you hit it right. Comfort is the main word, especially when you have little ones. Go for the most easy and enjoyable route in all things whenever possible. Its the only way to survive early motherhood.
