Yummy Mummy MEME

Vikki at Love from Mummy has tagged me in this meme by  Busy Bee Mummy Bex and it's all about the yummy mummy side of motherhood.  So here goes. . . 

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

Well I jump out of bed, ready and excited for the new day of course - haha.  I count to 60 with a promise to myself that I will get up when I get there, and then repeat the exercise a few times until Dylan tells me time is up.  I think go into his room, look down on his smiley little face and excited wiggly toes, and we say hi and wave at each other before having a nice cuddle.

Do you shower daily? Are you an early morning shower or evening bath type?
Since having Dylan I have become very much an evening shower-er.  Trying to fit it into a morning schedule is not achievable anymore so I go for a late night shower and inevitably sleep with wet hair.  I have the odd bath with half a bottle of bubbles in it but I get too restless to stay in there long.

Do you wear make-up daily?
Yes.  Not a lot, but
I don't feel alive without a nice bit of eyeliner.  Eyeliner and mascara mean I am ready for the day and even on a night out I don't really wear anything else.  I can't stand the feel of foundation and don't have the time or the energy for making too much effort.

What's in your make-up bag?
Eyeliner (of course)- pencil and liquid, mascara, under eye concealer and a blushy/bronzey thingamagig.  I think that is it actually!.

When you're having a slummy mummy day what do you normally wear?
Nothing is more comfortable than my baggy jeans and a T-shirt.  And of course slippers.  I have several pairs all around the house so that wherever I am I can find a pair to put on.

Nails - how often do you get them done?
I'm not sure I have ever had my nails done.  Waitressing means a ban on nail varnish and even without that I manage to chip them in minutes every time.  My toenails are usually a bright shade of pink or red and done expertly by moi.

Your top tip for tired eyes?
Eyeliner is my life saver.  It always makes my eyes look a little more alive. When I was younger and a bit more fun, I used to wear glittery eyeliner in bright colours when I was tired or hungover to take the attention away from the bags, but I would have to make that a permanent part of my make up bag now!

Are you a Starbucks or a Costa Coffee kind of girl?
There isn't a Starbucks nearby, yet we have an overdose of Costa so I guess I am a Costa girl.  Given the choice I would probably go for starbucks though as I love their frappucinnos.  

How many children do you have/want & why?
I have a beautiful 10 month old boy, Dylan and I would love another
3 children.  I loved every part of pregnancy, and having a baby and can't wait to do it again.  I want a nice big family and a house full of children.  The bloke isn't convinced and so far we have agreed on a second.  You will have to keep reading and find out who gets their way ;)

Where is your favourite place to shop for babies/children's clothes?
Dylan has jumped through sizes and so I usually get him a lot of supermarket clothes as they are reasonably priced and they have some lovely stuff.  My favourite baby clothes are from Mothercare as they do a great range of inbetween things - inbetween sleepsuits and outfits, which I loved as he started to get too old for sleepsuits all day but I still wanted him to look like a baby.

Flats or heels? Your everyday shoes are...?
Flats, all the way!  Heels are only for special occasions now, although I do have a pretty impressive collection!

So there are my yummy mummy truths.  I am tagging. . . 

(please add your name if you want to do it - hope this isn't cheating):


  1. Supermarkets are an excellant place to buy baby clothes especially when their not in them for long.
    3 more children are you mad lol x x

  2. Four children!?!

    Jaysus I have three and a fourth would bowl me over the edge!

    1. I'm with Jane, and I only have TWO!!
      Still, my husband's aunt has (not kidding) FIFTEEN children, and she's one of the happiest and calmest people I've ever met. I can really understand the happiness in having a big family, but I just know it's beyond me. I guess keeping calm is the big trick, and I'm really not known for my skills in that area :)


I love comments, so please let me know what you think!
