Ask and you shall receive – here are my best tips and tricks for feeling “put together” as a busy mama of 8! It's not about how you look but how it makes your feel. If you're looking for a little extra boost of confidence or pep in your step, try out some of these ideas!

Let's talk about the superhero cape we all have in our closet but often forget to wear. No, it's not hidden behind the winter coats or those pre-baby jeans we swear we'll fit into again. It's called “Getting Ready for the Day,” and oh boy, does it pack a punch!

Remember the days when “getting ready” meant leisurely showers, experimenting with eyeshadow, and choosing outfits that didn’t have the word “stretch” in the description? Fast forward to our mom lives, where “getting ready” often means ensuring we don’t have breakfast stains on our shirts (or sniffing to make sure what we're wearing is at least fresher than yesterday’s yoga pants).

But here's a little secret: taking a few extra minutes to put ourselves together can be our secret weapon. It’s like slipping on a pair of Wonder Woman’s bracelets, but instead of deflecting bullets, we’re deflecting toddler tantrums and conquering the mountain of laundry with a bit more pep in our step.

I put together this video for you with the many ways that I simplify putting myself together to instantly feel more confident and productive!

Why Bother, You Ask?

  1. Confidence Booster: There’s something about wearing an outfit that doesn’t scream “I survived another morning” that just makes you feel like you've got your life together. Even if it’s just for the school run. It’s the armor we wear to face the day, telling the world (and ourselves), “I’m ready for you!”
  2. Mental Health Magic: The act of choosing an outfit, doing your hair, or even swiping on some mascara can be a form of self-care. It’s a reminder that amidst the chaos of motherhood, you are still YOU. It’s not vanity; it’s sanity.
  3. Productivity Potion: Ever noticed how on the days you change out of your PJ’s into actual clothes, you suddenly transform into a productivity ninja? Those are the days you’re likely to tackle the to-do list, make that doctor’s appointment you’ve been postponing since last month, and maybe even (dare we say it) start a hobby.

So, friends and mamas, let’s dust off that cape and wear it proudly. Whether it’s a swipe of lip gloss, your favorite pair of jeans, or that shirt that makes you feel like a million bucks (even if it was only $19.99 on sale), remember that taking that little bit of time for yourself isn’t selfish—it’s essential.

Here’s to conquering the day, one well-put-together outfit at a time!

With love and mascara,
