Treat yourself

Happy mothersday to all mums from all over the world.

Today I feel a bit of a sensation even though I live in one of those countries that don't celebrate mothersday today.
Here in the Republic of Ireland we already celebrated Mothersday in April
So it s strange to know that it is mothersday again
But being a mum I feel excited and happy for all the mums in the world.

As you might know I'm selling Avon products even though I'm on a short break now but I will be starting soon again, God willing.
In one of the books the reps get , I found a piece about how to do use mascara which I want to share.

We mothers often pay litte attention to how we look because we feel that we are too busy. I'm one of those mums. Lately I'm having bad hair days on a daily basis and I don't do much to change it and hardly take the time to put make up on Except for Sunday when I go to church. Most Sundays I try a bit harder.

I think it's important for us mums to take good care of ourselves. Those few minutes per day can make a lot of difference. It can make us feel good as a woman. Because even though we're mums we are still women.

We have to celebrate that we are women and treat ourselves from time to time. To a new hairdo, a nice dress, a pedicure, a spa, a shopping spree,a book, magazine. Orjust a piece of cake with a nice cup of tea from time to time...

Today I started the day with one of these and a cup of tea. mmmmm...

I looked online and found this video in which they also show how to put on mascara so instead of the tutorial from the book I decided to share this.

It's a tutorial for the Avon Spectralash Mascara.

Well, I'm going to try it today and will post on it again some other time.
I hope to go to the hair salon tomorrow morning and soon I will purchase a hair straightener to use in between salon appointments and hopefully my hair will look again like this for most of the time.

The baby was three weeks old at that time and quite a bit of my hair was cut off because at the back a part of my hair broke off during my pregnancy but I really felt great that day.

Then in short how my mothersday was this year ;Since becoming a mum of 3, I felt I really liked to get pampered with a few nice things.
I saw a lovely balloon with flowers on it, beautiful cards with flowers on them and I saw a book called mothersday and boxes of chocolate. And ofcourse a nice bouquet of flowers would've been nice.
So I already had told my 6 year old daughter what I would love to get and she was excited about going shopping for me for mothersday but since daddy needed to work I would have to take her.myself but then I lost my bank card.
So on mothersday I just went to church in the morning with the baby and afterwards took a small amount out of my creditcard and took my oldest daughter to Aldi's to buy some flowers and a box of chocolates and at home she gave them to me with the card she made at school, And I also got the art works with handprints and footprints from all of my girls we made the day before.This was another something I loved to have and decided to help the kids with.
And I was happy with just that little bit.

At the end of the day we watched the movie Motherhood together. Not really a family movie but I just liked to watch it on that day.

In my next post I will write more about this movie. I'm probably going to watch it again today.

I learned that I didn't need a lot to celebrate mothersday. I might deserve a lot like all mums do but a little felt just as good.

I loved the simple bouquet of flowers and the chocolate turned into 'mummy chocolates' to treat myself with when I felt I deserved a small treat after a hard dsy of cleaning up and taking care of the kids as a 'pat on the sholulder'.

I hope that you get a chance to feel special today. Because the truth is you are....whether you believe it or not.

And if there's no one else around to pamper you or your kids are a bit to small, pamper yourself. Because you deserve it.

Have a happy mothersday


Do you treat yourself from time to time and what is your favourite treat ?

I will be having a give away soon.

So watch out for that.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Little people

It's Five minute friday. And I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker for another session of five minute writing.

 Today we are writing about ; Imagine


 I love having kids. I love how they can surprise you by using certain words or doing certain things of which you were not aware that they could say them or do them. I love how clever they are.
I love to take care of them and to see them grow in to the people they are supposed to be one day. Now they are little people, my little people. A wish fulfilled, a blessing from God and I can’t imagine how life would be without them.
I can’t imagine a life without tiny arms that wrap themselves around you and say ‘I love you mummy’, even though they are only two. I can’t imagine a house without toys , the buggy with dollies in the corridor, the little wooden bike in the living room, the forgotten stuffed animals behind the sofa.
Though I sometimes wish that it was easier, that they made less mess, I surely can’t imagine life without them.
