Yummy Mummy Meme

Saturday, 9 June 2012

So one of my favourite bloggers and dear twitter friends Mrs Jones has tagged me in this Yummy Mummy Meme, originally started over at Busy Bee and I am excited to have a go!

As with most memes there are some rules so here they are!

When answering the questions, give as much detail as possible. It’s all about the finer details, people!

What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Normally I'm getting right out of bed to get a shouting baby out of her cot! She normally is our little alarm clock but if we wake before her, I give my OH a little squeeze, it's the best way to start my day!

Do you Shower Daily? Are you a Early Morning Shower or  evening Bath type?
Well post baby I don't always get the chance to everyday - judge me if you will! With a small toddler to look after, working and taking care of all the other elements that make up our life I don't always get the chance! So I try to grab one before OH leaves in the morning or I jump in the bath with LO at night. When ever she has sleepovers at Grandmas I always have the most long luxurious baths with wine and candles as I miss this so much as a mum!

Do you wear Make Up Daily?
When I worked in the outside world I did but now I work from home no, I find it kind of pointless to get all dolled up just to spend time on my own at home. It does seem more of a treat though now when I have a reason to! 

What's in your make up bag?
Mostly too much crap but my must haves are MAC's Mineralised Satin Finish foundation No 7 Quick Cover Blemish Stick and Lancome Hypnose Waterproof  Mascara as well as an assortment of powders, bronzer, eye shadows and liners and hundreds of tubes and pots of lip-gloss! I love trying out new products!

When your having a slummy Mummy day what do you normally wear?
Well, I could argue that most days are slummy mummy days for me at the moment! My staple week day uniform is leggings or jeans, Brenton tops or comfy knitted cardigans depending on weather or t-shirts or vests from Gap and of course ballet pumps! 

Nails - how often do you get them done?
Not as much as I would like! I used to have a girl come to my house once a month and do them but she moved away so recently I have been doing them myself - I always get them done for special occasions though as my little treat!

Your top tip for Tired Eyes?
Get more sleep? Lol, if like me though and you have a little monkey who doesn't always sleep well I have found Garnier Youthful Radiance tinted eye roll on a life saver , hides dark circles and gives my eyes a lift!

Are you a Starbucks or Costa Coffee kind of girl?
If you ask anyone who knows me they will tell you all about my obsession with Starbucks, my OH bought me a Starbucks Card at Christmas and I'm am forever topping it up, we even have there coffee at home. I love it so much as it reminds me of my days when I lived in Canada!

How many Children do you have/want & why?
Well I have one adorable little girl who is twenty months, OH and I have always agreed we want a big family and have settled on four! Whether we will get them all is another story! We are hoping number 2 will come soon but that has proven more difficult than we thought and if/when number 2 does arrive I'm sure I will post all about that stressful and emotional journey but right now it's a little sensitive for me.

Where is your favourite place to shop for Babies/Children's clothes?
Mostly LC has her clothes from Gap  as well as Old Navy (thanks to her Canadian Godmother) or Next (thanks to my mum's life long discount!) For special occasions I like to buy her dresses from children's clothing boutiques, for her Naming Day we got her dress from Poppy their girl's dresses are gorgeous!

Here she is in her Dress!

Flats or Heels Everyday shoes are?
Flats for me, I wish I had the lifestyle to be able to wear heels even a few days a week but unfortunately that is not the case! I do enjoy getting dressed up and wearing heels when we go out though!  

So now it's time for me to tag three lovely ladies for this meme so here they are!

  1. Uh-oh. . this is going to be an embarrassingly short one. . . as I am not a girly girl . . so guess could be a tad entertaining x
    PS I love that dress!!! Just the cutest thing ever! Right down to the matching hair accessory; how much of a trend setter is she? Harper Seven eat your fashionista heart out. xxx

    1. Lol, she is my little doll, I'm a bit obsessive about matching her accessories, she always has more shoes than I do each season and now she has just gotten in to bangles and hand bags!! She is such a little diva! X x x

  2. Love your answers and that dress is so cute x
