What Goes Up Must Come Down: The Girls...What Goes Up Must Come Down: The Girls...
FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2010
Well, you know…the ‘girls’.
Since the tender age of 12 when “We must, we must, we must increase our bust” became the swan song of girls everywhere, women have been (just a wee bit) obsessed with their bust size.
Too small, too big, rarely just right…
Our fascination with our own silhouettes is the foundation of an entire industry (lead by Queen Victoria and her wonderful Wonder Bras).
Pregnancy and motherhood has it’s…ahem…perks in that department! But beware that what goes up, must (according to the laws of nature) come down. And sometimes that down goes WAY down…
What? I didn’t sign up for this!
Motherhood brings with it many things. First smiles, first steps, first words. It also brings dark circles under your eyes, a cosmopolitan wardrobe adored with shmoo, and a body that just isn’t the same (and well…the irreversible changes to the girls except by medical intervention).
So long to the days of disco
The first days, weeks, months after my daughter was born meant less time for me. A LOT less. Forget fancy hairdos, freshly pressed power suit and manicured fingernails – showering before my husband got home at 5 o’clock was a special occasion.
Getting your mojo back…
Kicks off the yoga pants and break out the lip gloss, even if it’s just to dance with your toddler in your living room. It’s about embracing motherhood, and celebrating the sexy, savvy woman you know is hiding under the shmoo and cat fur.

Do you feel better when you look better? I imagine most women would answer “yes” to this question. It seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? Why then, do so many women lose their beauty routines when they become mothers? Some women say it’s tough to find the time. Others say they stop caring once a baby comes along. Can you see yourself ever throwing in the beauty towel?
SheSpeaks.com recently ran a piece written by a working mom who won’t walk out the door without concealer and a little mascara. It takes just a few minutes to make an investment in yourself that will pay off all day long (provided you’re using a long-wearing formulation!). I agree with the idea that it’s important to keep making this investment, even when your life’s time bank might be tight.
What do you think? What makeup product gives you the biggest boost in the least amount of time?
