I have always been a low maintenance girl (a topic I’m planning to do a lot more with this year). I didn’t grow up using makeup or even nail polish. I didn’t know how to manage my unruly hair. I did enjoy fashion and had fun putting together interesting looks with my very limited budget, but overall I was lucky to wind up looking presentable.
While part of me has always wanted to be one of the girls who obviously spent a lot of time on making themselves look great, I can never seem to justify spending that much time myself. Always at the forefront of my mind are the myriad of the things I hope to do with my life, and how little time we all really have.
But like Natalia says in this post, “Feeling good about yourself isn’t shallow, being confident is attractive, and being a mom doesn’t mean you have to lose yourself in the process!”
Honestly, especially after becoming a mother almost 6 years ago, there have been many moments of hopelessness about ever really being able to feel that great about my appearance. I knew that fashion and beauty could be accessible, but I just didn’t even have time to think about figuring it out.
Thanks to what Natalia does through this blog, and particularly Copycat Closet, I’m now a little more motivated and challenged with practical ideas that don’t take much time to continue developing my personal style. I’ve been reminded of how very valuable doing those little things for yourself are because of how much they end up affecting all the other parts of your life. I find it to be a great exercise in creativity, and it’s nice to get out from behind the computer for a bit
If I hadn’t chosen to take Natalia’s challenges I wouldn’t have been able to write this sponsored post for No nonsense because I didn’t really have anything to do with fashion on my blog previously – score!
If you haven’t joined in with the weekly challenges yet, I would highly encourage you to do yourself a favor and start – I’ll see you there!
In the meantime, it’s your last chance to enter for this excellent start to your spring wardrobe from Forever 21, sponsored by myself and Carly!
