FROM THE ARCHIVES | YUMMY MUMMY




What does the term Yummy Mummy mean to you? To me it means to always look your best in every situation. That does not mean make up everyday or pretending to be someone your not. It means to take the time out of everyday and look after you. Paint your nails, soak in the bath, put on your favourite dress and go down the street for your everyday essentials. Ok not everyone gets the time to take time out but if you can always look your best then do so. Put on that mascara or your favourite lippie. Just do something little that makes you feel beautiful. To me everyone is beautiful and everyone should shine.

I read 'the curse of the yummy mummy' on Just b by pottymouthmama. I love  this article and hearing Lexi's thoughts. Some ring true to us all I am sure. I admit I did not feel beautiful or very yummy when I had my daughters and it is only know that I am older and my daughters are teenagers that I actually take the time to make myself look my best everyday. I am by no means a very attractive person but yes what Lexi says 'If you’re a mummy, no matter what your little person thinks you’re positively yummy.  And that’s what matters.' rings so true. My daughters are beautiful, I tell them everyday, and they let me know that I am too. 

We all look at ourselves differently to how others perceive us. We are our own worst enemies when it comes to how we look and it takes hearing from another person or your own children to open your eyes and look. We are not all slim and fit but you are you and you are beautiful in other people's eyes, if not your own. I am no slim and fit mummy but I make time to make myself happy by doing my hair and dressing like I am ready to go out or someone is going to pop over for a coffee. This makes me feel good about myself and I may not be  a yummy mummy like the gorgeous celebrities but I am to my children and I am to myself as well. It really does not matter what others think or say as long as you feel good.
