|The Fed-ex guy said I did not look like a "homeschool mom" - good!|
I keep loosing my sexy, one moment there it is.. I pay attention to it.. it rocks, I rock, the planets are in alignment and the angels sing.. but the second my back is turned getting all busy with kids and cat-boxes, dead car alternators and leaky toilets it goes and sneaks off, no card or letter.. gone. I actively have to go find the damn thing and drag it back. I am happy I do each time but dang it's easy for it to slip away and then for me to feel like total crap.
If this has not happened to you please feel free to continue on your way.. since there is not going to be much else here for you today ( but do check back tomorrow!).. but for the rest of us I am going to throw down my top 7 tips for finding your sexy when it goes off and hides.
1)Ban the sweatshirt-
|From J Jill|
Men's style t-shirts have neck lines that are much higher than women's style. These are not flattering on most any woman. Take the time to get a t shirt styled for a woman. It will take off 10 visual pounds!
3) Take Some Time to Find Your Own Style-
While you don't have to be on the cutting edge of fashion or spend tons of money spend some time looking around out there to see what is new and fresh that you might be able to or want to wear. Take some time to go through your wardrobe and pull out the items that while they might be "comfy" don't leave you looking your best. Be ruthless and get rid of anything that makes you feel crappy. If it leaves you with 6 pieces start from there. This season I am LOVING sweater knit dresses. They are easy to wear each and every day with a pair of tights and some boots.
And please know these options are not just for the reed-thin among us. I am 177 pounds and while I can't rock the bear leg anymore I would totally wear this dress with tights or leggings and encourage you to give it a try too. These dresses are SO comfortable!
4) Take care of the Personal Grooming - 'Nuff said HERE
5) Get some sleep -
sleep makes you sexy. I need 8 hours, yes, more than some but less than that for more than a few days and I am a real witch.. witches are not really sexy or confident.. just saying
6) Spend money on yourself - I think as mothers and especially homeschool mothers we are really guilty of spending way more on our kids than on ourselves. We love those crazy kids and want the best for them so cheat ourselves thinking we can " get by" with last years t-shirt (it's just a little stain) or that no one will care that our hair looks like we did it with a mix-master.. but you know who cares?.. your kids. And while they might not say much they are watching everything you do. What sort of message of self worth and value are we teaching them by not caring for ourselves?
7) Have Sex - Yep.. there it is, have sex to help you feel sexy. The health benefits of sex are numerous and well documented. It relives tension, helps you sleep, burns calories and more. What's not to like?
But most of all know that you have great value and worth, you are amazing and so very deserving of good self care and rockin' the gracious creature you are.. now get moving!
