Yummy Mummy Meme

Ooo! It seems as though I have been tagged by the lovely Vikki from Love from Mummy to complete the Yummy Mummy Meme. This Meme is based around the yummy side of being a parent which was started back at the beginning of June by Busy Bee Mummy Bex

Lets begin...

What is the first thing you do when you wake up?

Based on Monday-Friday the first time I'm woken is around 7am when the Mr kisses my forehead before he heads off to work. I really don't object to being woken like this, infact I LOVE it and it makes me smile knowing that I am loved (even when snoring and without a thick layer of foundation and eye liner on!). The second time is either by the kids around 7.40 or my alarm around this time too. I tend to sit up, check my phone to see the time and then get out of bed to begin the day.
If it's a Saturday or Sunday and I'm woken before 8 then I tend to say 'Rarrr' and hide under the pillow for a few minutes first!

Do you shower daily? Are you an early morning shower or evening bath type?

I shower daily before bed so I'm fresh when climbing into my lovely kingsize bed with memory foam mattress, heaven! I do like to bath though and I enjoy a Lush bath bomb thrown in too. I always shower after a bath though to rinse off properly.

Do you wear make-up daily?

I will not leave the house without it. I don't wear a lot and I go for a natural-ish look but I feel almost naked bare faced. A bit of foundation (I try not to look like a wotsit), mascara, eye liner and clear gloss are my daily essentials.

What's in your make-up bag?

A fair bit and then I have a huge stash for at home too ...oops. My little pink zebra print bag contains foundation, powder, 2 blushs, 3/4 lip glosses, mascara, 3 liquid liners and a pencil, pencil sharpener and a brow pencil.

When you're having a slummy mummy day what do you normally wear?

If I'm home all day or feeling unwell I will usually chill out in leggings and a casual top or print. I don't really have many slummy mummy days though, it would be typical that the family would turn up as a surprise or something and see me in zombie mode!

Nails - how often do you get them done?

Every 4 weeks I have a fresh set of acrylics put on. I don't go for french tip or clear I always go for funky ones with gems and nail art. I like to make a bit of a statement with them.

Your top tip for tired eyes?

More sleep or sunglasses!? I don't really have any! Makeup should do the trick and my eyes are quite sensitive so I avoid putting any food like cucmber near them as they end up looking worse!

Are you a Starbucks or a Costa Coffee kind of girl?

I don't drink tea or coffee but I do love a hot chocolate with flakes dunked in to melt. Nomnom! Costa it is.

How many children do you have/want & why?
I have 2 children, Minxy aged 8 and Jamster aged 6. I would love a baby, I've wanted another for a good few years, but the Mr has said no and as it takes two to tango so I have to deal with his decision. Nagging day in and out hasn't worked boo!

Where is your favourite place to shop for babies/children's clothes?

I really enjoy a spree in H&M. They have a fantastic range, are great value and have a lot of the Mini Mes fav characters on their clothing ie Star Wars and Hello Kitty so I can't go wrong there. They wash well and seem hard wearing - bonus.

Flats or heels? Your everyday shoes are...?

I'm 6ft as it is so heels are a big no no for me. Plus I can't walk in them without looking like a hippo on stilts or bambi on ice! Ballet style pumps are perfect.

  1. Wow, what posh nails! You are definitely more yummy than slummy - I suspect I may be largely at the other end of the spectrum...!!

    1. I have toes to match hehe.

      I'm sure you are stunning :) x
