Do you want to hear something crazy?
I’m pretty ecstatic and cannot help but reflect on where it all started and look towards the fashionable future.
4 years ago while breastfeeding, I started pouring or rather typing my heart out on my notepad. I was exhausted, overwhelmed and had no clue what I was doing. I was lost between countless breastfeeding sessions, diapers, wipes and the enormous responsibility of taking care of another human being.
One day I was sobbing (again) and asked my Mom:
When will I ever get to feel like ME again?
I cannot remember her answer, but somewhere between the tears and loads of coffee I realised that even though my whole life has change I still need to do something for me. So, I made a conscious decision to get up, get dressed and be the best-looking Mama out there. Why? Because I love fashion! Putting together outfits makes ME happy! It’s a creative outlet and I refuse to wear leggings and black tops for the rest of my life.
Yes, I have a mom-bod now, but I can still look and feel pretty (and so can you)!
Most days I would get up, take a shower, put on a bright lipstick and get dressed. And you know what? I would instantly feel better and have a more productive day.
Mirror selfies followed, matching outfits with little Miss Minki. I wrote about motherhood, parenting, products, clothes we love, and PrettyBelle The Blog grew…
