6 Great Style and Beauty Tips for Busy Moms

beauty tips, skin care tips

Whether you’ve recently welcomed motherhood or are a parenting veteran, you know that time is a luxury. You can barely find the time to sleep, let alone put on makeup and look polished. Before you know it, your kids  and other responsibilities demand all your attention and you have no time for yourself. You’ve probably forgotten what it feels like to get a manicure or have a day at the spa.

But you don’t need to give up on looking good yet. Give yourself just 15 minutes every day and follow the tips mentioned below to look and feel great.

(Take a few minutes everyday to take care of yourself)

  1. Prioritize healthy skin

Taking care of your skin should be foremost on your list of priorities. No amount of makeup can cover up an unhealthy complexion. So find a skincare regime that works for you and follow this every day. Cleanse gently, tone and moisturize with a hydrating moisturizer. Always use a good sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Additionally, remember that what you eat has an impact on the health of your skin. So consume a diet full of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Vitamins are the building blocks of skin and hair, and a deficiency of these can cause many skin problems and infections. For more information on vitamin rich foods and their benefits, take a look at this infographic:

Also remember to drink plenty of water and get enough sleep. Motherhood may keep you up on most nights, so try to fit in naps throughout the day.

  1. Invest in Basics and staples

As a mom, you probably spend a lot of time in jeans, joggers and t-shirts. These are comfortable and perfect for running after kids or even doing the laundry. But you can stay comfortable and stylish at the same time. Invest in a great pair of jeans that flatter your shape or a classic shirt instead of spending money on cheaper clothes. These will get worn out in no time, and you’ll be back where you started. Investing in staples will save you time and money in the long run.

  1. Get a Straightening or Curling Treatment for your hair

With a hectic day ahead, you won’t have the time to put together an elaborate hairdo. You probably barely have the time to run a comb through your hair. A simple solution to this is to have a permanent hair treatment done. Getting your hair straightened or curled, will give you gorgeous hair every day with no effort.

  1. Pick the Right Accessories

The right accessories can make or break an outfit. A great bag or some stunning shoes will transform your look completely. Like clothing, the same rule applies when it comes to accessories. Always invest in quality, classic pieces, rather than blindly following trends. Take care of your accessories and store them in dust proof bags to ensure that they last you many years. Great accessories can elevate any basic outfit and take it up several notches.

  1. Look after your nails and toes

Your days of hitting the salon regularly may be far behind you.  You want your hands and feet to look gorgeous in sandals or flip flops during the summer months.  You can still have soft hands, feet and polished nails. All you need are a few basic items such as a nail file, buffing brush, and moisturizer.  A little care every day and can give your nails that salon look at home.

  1. Take the natural route

Your path to beautiful skin and hair can begin right in your kitchen. You’d be surprised at the common ingredients that can be incorporated into your skin care routine.  However, you don’t have to spend valuable time mixing skincare concoctions in the kitchen to fix your skin.  Easily available ingredients such as olive oil can do wonders for your complexion. It acts as an excellent moisturizer and soothes dry skin and lips.  Additionally, rubbing lemon juice on your elbows and knees can lighten pigmentation. Don’t need to head to the store the next time you run out of moisturizer, head toward your kitchen. Just use the natural ingredients in your kitchen.

Conclusion

Most importantly, being a mom isn’t easy. It requires patience, stamina and an endless amount of energy. You may feel overwhelmed at times, and wonder if you will get any time to yourself ever again. Just remember that it will all be worth it and make sure to set aside a few minutes every day for yourself.  Most Taking care of yourself will help you feel more centered, relaxed and ready to take on the day. Try some of the tips mentioned, to feel your best even on the busiest days.  What’s in your skin care routine?  Do you take time to get a manicure or pedicure?  Tell us about your style or beauty routine.

Guest Post – Is The Little White Dress Replacing The Little Black Dress

 

fashhion tips, little black dress, empowerment

 

If you’ve ever been concerned about wearing white because it wouldn’t suit the occasion, it’s high time you stopped worrying. This summer, the Little White Dress (LWD) has become a light and bright substitute for the classy Little Black Dress. The LWD comes in every shape and size and even wearing it plain can make a statement. However, there are designers who like to play with shiny details and colorful accessories that excite and attract the eye.

You can wear it for both formal and casual events, such as days spent at the beach or evening parties, but make sure you pick the right dress cut and the fabric appropriate for the occasion. The dress pattern usually predisposes what the dress should be worn for.

If you want to refresh your look this summer, here are a few tips on how to look like a goddess while wearing the LWD.

Balanced Outfit for Casual Summer Days

During summer, you are probably in a dire need of a cozy, yet chic everyday outfit. First of all, you should pick a white sundress made from breathable fabrics. You can go for a baby doll shift or any other casual pattern, as long as it makes you feel comfortable.

Pair this dress with brown or nude braided sandals and bold colored accessories (a belt, bracelet and/or big earrings). Finish off with either an oversized handbag or a smaller cross body bag. Both of these are an excellent match as long as the color fits the other accessories.

Achieve that Smart and Tantalizing Look

White is such a divine color. It’s associated with innocence, balance and serenity. If you want to look smart while wearing a white dress, choose a dress cut carefully. A white cut out dress is perfect for more formal events, such as cocktail parties or romantic nights out. It’s stylish and flamboyant, yet balanced enough because it’s white.

You can also go for the tight fitting sheath dress, which is the best option for business meetings and conferences. Add a belt or a gold statement bracelet or a necklace to achieve that sophisticated smart look. In order to show off your body figure, wear a nude body shaper under the dress. Kim Kardashian is responsible for revealing the secret for achieving the perfect body line.

Turn on the Spotlight in the Evening

If you’re spending time with your family on a vacation, you’ll need something both elegant and cozy to wear in the evenings. A long ribbed white dress is ideal for long walks down the beach. Opt for comfortable leather sandals and a colorful necklace and you’ll be ready in an instant. If you’re spending time with your family on a vacation, you’ll need something both elegant and cozy to wear in the evenings. A long ribbed white dress is ideal for long walks down the beach. Opt for comfortable leather sandals and a colorful necklace and you’ll be ready in an instant.

Off-the-shoulder style is an excellent choice if you want to show off your new tan. On the other hand, even a simple white lace dress is suitable for a night out when paired with an oversized colorful scarf (a classic style Julianne Hough sometimes prefers).

A Perfect Forever-Trendy Combination

Hope you found these pieces of advice useful. Enjoy your summer and try out some of the outfits mentioned. The LWD is this season’s first choice!

101 Style Guide For Busy Moms: Wear Flats

 fashion tips, fashion for moms, sandal ideas
We simply love flats: loafers, espadrilles, slip ons, Mary Janes, gladiators – you name it! Flats are a living proof that you don’t have to be uncomfortable in order to be stylish and they offer a great starting point for coming up with head-turning looks. However, it’s not always easy to decide on what kind of outfit can go with different types of flats.  Read on to find out how you can combine your outfit and accessories with flats to create various looks: from business, casual, and urban, to feminine and edgy.
Casual and On Point
For a daily casual summer look, try espadrilles. They are trending big time and look best with rolled up pants, skirts and shorts. For a simple look, try skinny jeans with a light fabric pastel colored blouse (or floral print) and espadrilles within the same color range. Finish the look with a messenger purse or drawstring bag.  Accessorize with a pair of Wayfarer glasses for a cool look.
Girly and Relaxed Style
Gladiators offer a chance to mix up different looks, but they go best with rompers and shorts. Whether they’re ankle-length or knee length, you can style gladiators perfectly for a girly look. We suggest that you try a soft denim short dress or romper.  A simple shoulder bag will do the trick.  Choose the same color leather as your stylish gladiators. Finish your look with wavy hair or a messy bun and keep your jewelry simple. Consider bracelets in vivid colors to make your look bold and interesting.
Business Look
For a bossy and sleek look, moccasins are a great choice, but you can explore many different styles. Try the timeless black-red-white combination: opt for red moccasins and combine them with the simple nylon black business pants and a white cotton no-sleeve turtleneck. Add a red tote bag and you’re all set for a successful day at work!
Edgy and Sexy
For a night on the town, consider a bolder look that includes leopard print Chelsea boots. If you prefer a more comfortable and edgier look, try wearing ripped black skinny jeans, accompanied with a black top and a leather jacket. If you wish to add more sexiness to your look, replace the jeans with a mini skirt and you’ll definitely be in the spotlight!
Timeless Parisian Chic
Although flats are known as the essential part of business and casual outfits, they are a great option for feminine looks, too. Parisian women have a reputation for their unrivaled glamorous sense for fashion. For a tasteful look follow this simple rule when choosing footwear for your outfits: if the length of the skirt or a dress is above the knee, flats are the way to go. If it’s below the knee, heels make a great choice.  For a perfectly styled feminine look, try out fashionable tight dresses: pick the fabrics that contain elastin since they’ll follow your body line beautifully and enhance your curves. We suggest you try out trendy knitted off the shoulder dress (length above the knee) in the nude color and combine it with the classic black ballerina flats.
Finish up your look with a black cross body purse, or you can opt for a red one and combine it with your lipstick and nail polish. Style your hair in big waves and you can even add a beret. Stick to the nude and tan shades, and of course the timeless B&W for a sleek
Parisian look.
These are our top five ideas on how to wear flats and create different kinds of looks. Feel free to experiment!

Skincare Tips For Busy Moms

 

Even though motherhood is one of the most beautiful things in the world, it can be very stressful.  Sleepless nights often take their toll on your skin and the area under the eyes.  We all know that a lack of sleep can make you look tired and dehydrated.  There’s good news, you can stay healthy and gorgeous no matter what. Here are five useful tips on how to accomplish that and save your precious time:

 

Tea Bags to the Rescue

Every mom’s worst enemy is puffy dark circles.  Caffeinated green tea bags is the solution.  They do wonders for the under eye area.  Just soak them in hot water for a few minutes, and let them cool to room temperature before squeezing out the liquid.

Next, close your eyes, place the bags on them, and voila!  The caffeine will increase your circulation, and help get rid of the puffiness. Add a touch of concealer later on and you’re good to go!

 

Don’t Forget to Moisturize

Moisturizing should be an essential step in every woman’s skincare routine.  This is true for both young moms and those over 40. As soon as you reach a certain age, you really can’t over moisturize. Keep this in mind, and don’t skip this step at any cost.

Additionally, eye and face cream should be applied every night after cleansing. It’s important that you extend skincare routine to your neck and décolletage. These areas, too, need to be hydrated and well-nourished. In order to save time, get a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation and use it on daily basis.  Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Cream  is an excellent moisturizer. 

 

Keep Your Skin Care Products at the Nightstand

The fact that you are a mom now doesn’t mean that you should ditch a skincare routine which works for you. We know that you often feel exhausted, and that using all those cleansers, toners, creams, and masks can be really time-consuming.  Keep moisturizers, toners and creams on your nightstand.

 

DIY Homemade Masks Do Wonders

Depending on your skin type, you can make a perfect face mask using the ingredients you already have in your kitchen! Banana is amazing when it comes to moisturizing, whereas milk provides a fresh and rejuvenated look for your tired skin. Plain yogurt is very handy, too, since it cleanses skin and tightens pores. When it comes to eggs, yolk is fantastic for dry skin, whereas egg whites do wonders for oily type.

However, if you are not keen on mixing all those ingredients all by yourself, you can always choose Natural Clay Face Mask  are fantastic for every skin type. 

 

A Good Self Tanner Will Do the Trick

Sun-kissed skin has always been very attractive, and healthy glow is surely one of the things you want in your life – especially during summer. However, exposing your skin to harmful sun rays is not the best idea, especially if you hate re-applying sunscreen every two hours. You can always choose a moisturizer with self-tanning components, which takes only 5 minutes to apply and provides a gorgeous and vibrant look to your skin. Facial self tanners are also a good idea, since these will give a golden touch to your face.

The role of a mom doesn’t have to take its toll when it comes to your skin – you can take good care of it even when you’re too busy running around. It’s important to establish an effective routine that will save you some precious time, which will allow you to look fabulous even after a baby nightshift.

Inspirational Quote – Be A Lady

Image-Inspirational-Quote-KFC

Slay Your Dragons With Faith

 

 

self improvement, self confidence, self esteem

 

Do you remember the fairy tales when you were growing up that spoke of dragons?  Fairy tales usually included a castle.  They also include a princess, knight, and happily ever after.  Not everyone’s life turns out to be a fairy tale.  Unfortunately, many of us don’t enter adulthood without fears or scars.  Many are afraid of being alone or believe that they can’t make it their own.  Fear causes us to enter adulthood with the desire to be rescued by the knight.  

Life has beaten many down.  Due to an ex husband or boyfriend who has abused or left us, someone has convinced us that we are  worthless, daddy abused or left us and the list goes on.  As a result a monster was created, just like the fire breathing dragon  in the fairy tale.  That dragons roars and reminds us of how worthless we are and that we will never amount to anything. It causes us to have low esteem, a lack of self confidence or a lack of direction because we believe it.  The fire breathing dragon haunts us and has us cornered.  Many are afraid to step up and slay him. I’m here to tell you that you can Slay The Dragon no matter what you have gone through, I did. 

As a teenage mother, I had to face my fears. Not knowing how I was going to raise my daughter and make a life for us terrified me. Fear will cause you to do many things.  It will cause you to head down a path of destruction.  On the other hand, it can lead to your blessings.  By the grace of God, I headed toward my blessings. 

I didn’t know where I would end up, but I did knew that it was  the beginning of my journey.  Stepping on faith became a big part of my life.  Holding on my faith, I realized that being penniless didn’t equate to being broken.  I realized that I wasn’t alone.  I placed my hand in God’s and allowed him to lead me along my journey.  My next step was to realize that I was in control of me and my destiny.  No matter what cards life dealt me, I decided that I would become a card shark and play the hand. Sometimes I would win and sometimes I would lose. I just knew that I would not sit idle and allow life to walk all over me. 

Each morning I faced my fears.  I prayed for the tools that I would need to make a life for my child and me.  A knight on a white horse was never in my prayers.  I simply wanted to make a way to provide for us.  Asking God for my blessings was a daily ritual.  All I had to do was ask and I would receive.  The next step was to give him the glory and praise that he deserved. 

I ventured from the path that God had planned for me occasionally, but for the most part I stayed the course.  God placed trials in our path for a reason.  He wants us to go them in order for us to be strengthened to do his work.   Regardless of your situation, divorce, having problems with baby’s daddy, death or some other loss you can triumph too.  Face your fears, and you will learn to Slay The Dragons too.

The fire breathing monster will appear just when you think you have everything under control. Life is full of twist and turns, so don’t despair.  I have accepted that I will have to spend the rest of my life fighting this monster and putting out his fire, but I know the Victory is mine.  Step out on faith, and victory can be yours too.  

Values Help Develop Kids Self-Confidence

  kids self-esteem, motivating children, kid's values

 

Parents play a vital role in grooming and developing a child’s personality and self-esteem. Do you want to be the proud parents of a child who is full of self-confidence?  Do you want your child to walk with their head held high?  Here are some things you can do to help your child boost their self-confidence.

  • Do Not Let Any Negative Thoughts, Emotions and Limitations Pull you DownNegative thoughts only undermine your confidence. Do not let your true capabilities be overshadowed by inhibitions of the mind and heart.  Furthermore, exercise self-control and learn to maintain your calm and stay composed in panic situations. So keep brainwashing yourself.  Rummage through your brain to filter out the negative thoughts and keep going.
  • Positive Thinking Breeds PositivityBack your positive thoughts by positive actions. Even when you are on the lowest ebb, let the light of positivity shine through.
  • Face your fears and overcome any hurdles that come your way – Feed your self-esteem by challenging yourself and facing your biggest fears. Something which seemed unattainable in the past, if over-come with resoluteness of purpose can contribute significantly in raising your self-confidence. You will observe that automatically you will be able to cross hurdles and obstacles that would normally deter your progress.
  • Keep away from bad habits and inculcate healthy habits –   You need to correct your inner flaws and short comings to feel confident from within. It is very easy to get into wrong habits and very hard to get over them. Hence, inculcate healthy habits from the very beginning, so that they emerge as confident individuals as life progresses. Anything that makes you feel good about yourself, will ultimately lead to higher self-esteem.
  • Be Grateful for Whatever You Have and Live a Meaningful Life – It is very easy to be ungrateful.  You find yourself complaining and cribbing about the imperfections of life. What needs to be understood here is the need to identify happiness and true bliss in the small things in life. This is where our individual perceptions come into play. Our attitude towards life matters a big deal. If you envy other people you will be ungrateful for your blessings.  Therefore, you end up being a victim of inferiority complex. This keeps you in a constant state of restlessness.  As a result, it will make you have uncertain feelings about yourself, because you always feel the other person is better off than you. Until you are truly content and satisfied at heart, without any qualms, you will keep seeking for ways to find meaning in your life. It’s all about being truly happy. Being happy for who you are and where you are can lead to living healthier and more productive lives.
  • Emerge from failure as a stronger, experienced individual –  If at first you don’t succeed; try, try and try again. If you help your children live their life according to this basic principle you will be doing them a great favor. This implies that no matter what, keep your spirits high. Do not let failure get to you and empower and cloud your reasoning and logic such that it impairs practical reasoning, and leaves you confused and demoralized. Gathering your broken pieces and aiming to work with increased enthusiasm and fervor after facing a failure, is where true achievement lies.
  • Raise your intellectual standards – Be honest in analyzing yourself and take the initiative to develop your skills. Be in constant search for general knowledge and awareness. Being knowledgeable makes a person more confident. Personal growth is a continuous process. Stay updated with current national and international events. Become a participant on various topics such as politics, business and sports. Try learning new things on a daily basis and keep your child updated too.
  • Engage in philanthropic activitiesTeach your children to think about society.  They need to learn to empathize with the people who are not a fortunate as them.  Be an asset to the society by being an active part of it. Think about the needs of the people around you. This will help divert your focus to others rather than on yourself.  It will reduce you worrying less about your own imperfections. When you spread happiness around you, you will get to observe positive attitudes.  This will make you forget about the negativities around you  Eventually smoothening your way to enhancing your confidence level.

Be an example for your children. They will follow in your foot steps, and remember you may not see immediate changes in your child/children. Building confidence is a life time endeavor.

Guest Post – A Working Mom’s Guide On How To Be Happier

moms guide to happiness, relaxation, self-esteem, building confidence 

As mothers, we often work hard to make sure everyone around us is happy. We want our kids to be happy, as well as our spouses and our employers, but how often do you do things that make you happy? Your happiness and well-being affect the rest of your family.

All mothers need to make sure they take time for themselves. Working mothers need to make some extra effort since they are pulled in multiple directions every day. Whether you work because you really love your job or because you feel like you need to for financial reasons, you should still do the things that make you happy. Here are just a few ways you can work more happiness into your life:

  1. Schedule Everything

Invest in a daily planner that you love, or just really utilize that smartphone, because planning out your week will really help you be happier in your day-to-day life. Don’t just use your schedule as a way of staying on task, but write down things you want to accomplish each day, like spending time with your kids. It may seem weird to check things like that off your to-do list, but you won’t view it as a chore.

  1. Get in Sync With Your Spouse

Compare schedules with your spouse and make sure you are both taking the time you need for yourselves. Trade off kid-watching duties so you can go grab some caffeine at Starbucks by yourself and he can hang out with his friends. You both need time to do things that are important to you. In the end, you will both be happier.

  1. Make the Most of Your Commute

We are happiest when we are productive, both at work and at home. Don’t waste your commute to work, especially if it’s long. Use it as time to listen to podcasts, audiobooks or even learn a new language. You may find a new hobby that you love and make the most of time that is precious.

You can also use your commute as a way to cool down after a long day at work by going through pros and cons of the day. Also, try getting into the mindset of going home after work. When you get home after working all day, you should be present with your kids. So instead of thinking about all the things you need to get done at your job, think about how you can spend quality time at home with them.

  1. Learn How to Say No

No could become the most important word in your vocabulary. If you feel like you didn’t spend enough time with your spouse and kids this week, feel obligated to drive them to birthday parties or play dates. Don’t feel guilty if you have to tell other no, even if they don’t like it. Your family is what is most important.

  1. Make Time to Exercise

We all know that exercise can boost your mood and make you feel better about yourself. Carve out at least 10 to 15 minutes each day to get some exercise. Take a walk, pop in a workout DVD or just do some pushups and sit ups each night. You will feel happier and your body will thank you for it.

  1. Plan Intentional Time With Your Spouse

If you want to be happier, make sure your spouse is happy, too. Weekly or biweekly date nights are a must for a married couple. Be intentional with your time together. Turn off your cellphones and don’t talk about your kids’ schedules. Have fun!

  1. Don’t Compare Yourself With Other Moms

Most importantly, don’t compare yourself to other moms because it will just drag you down. It isn’t fair to you and it isn’t fair to those moms, either. You may think they have it better because they get to stay home with their kids, but you don’t know the whole story. Instead, know that you are setting a great example of a hardworking parent for your kids. Know that you are helping to provide for them and don’t take the time you get with them for granted.

Your happiness depends on you making time for yourself and for your family. How do you improve your own happiness as a working mom?

25 Ways To Feed Your Soul

 

self-improvement, spirituality, self-esteem, confidence

Our soul is the essence of who we are.  Feeding the soul is different from feeding the body. We feed our body to live, we feed our soul to connect with who we are and to make us whole.  Are you feeding your soul?  If not, we have a few suggestions on how you can get started.     

Feeding our soul awakes our passions. A few benefits are releasing stress, finding peace, and enjoying life. It requires us to connect on a deeper level and it’s as individual as you. What works for one may not work for another, so it requires you to connect with you. Find inner peace and getting in touch with who you really are will lead you to what you really love.   

For me, I find peace and connect with nature. Its beauty touches my soul.  I could literally spend hours enjoying all of its glory.  In the spring the grass turns green and flowers come to life.  It motivates me to become one with nature and it awakens one of my passions, gardening. In the summer I enjoy the sound of the ocean and fall the beautiful colors.

Just sipping a hot cup of coffee while inhaling the crisp air on a fall morning stirs my soul too. I gather fall leaves for crafts and take nature hunts with the kids. These things illuminate who I am and brightens my spirit. Feeding my soul leads me to my voice. 


Here are a few ideas on how you can feed your soul and awaken your spirit:

  1. Take a long walk/hike.
  2. Have a good old fashioned picnic with your husband/significant other.  
  3. Go to the book store and buy a book. 
  4. Pick a bouquet of flowers from the backyard.
  5. Take a drive through the country. 
  6. Plant a garden or a few flowers. 
  7. Listen to your favorite songs. 
  8. Take a bubble bath.
  9. Curl up with a cup of tea. 
  10. Let go of all things and people that cause you stress.  
  11. Take a yoga or meditation class. 
  12. Light your favorite candle and have a cup of coffee.
  13. Attend/join church.
  14. Take a walk on the beach and listen to the ocean.  
  15. Read daily inspirations. 
  16. Watch the sun rise or set.
  17. Refinish or paint a piece of furniture. 
  18. Have a good cry. 
  19. Go sight seeing. 
  20. Get a manicure and/or pedicure
  21. Bake a batch of cookies and enjoy. 
  22. Clean out a closet, attic, or basement and reminisce.
  23. Revisit one of your favorite childhood places. 
  24. Refresh your bedding.
  25. Spend time with your children/grandchild and laugh. 

Start feeding your soul, it allows your light to shine. You will feel rejuvenated, happy, and find the way to great things in your life.
