How to look and feel sexy after becoming a mom!!

So everyone always asks me, "you look great, how do you do it?" or " what's your secret" or "your so confident!" . I don't see myself as "looking great" but I am confident and I do have good self-esteem. It got me to thinking..why aren't other women as confident as I am? So I am writing this segment for those of us who have a hard time with our self-esteem...those of us who would rather stay at home in pjs all day then have to go out in public...those of us who are unhappy with our bodies and the way we look after becoming a mom!!

1. A little bit goes a long way!

One of the things I MAKE myself do every day ...even when Noah was a newborn and up every two hrs..was get a shower and put a little bit of makeup on or do something with my hair (besides pulling it into a ponytail!) Now, not all days am I going to put on a bunch of makeup and get all frilly, especially if I'm not going anywhere all day. But just taking a shower and drying your hair makes you feel sooooo much better!! I try to do it in the morning so I feel good right away. When Noah was tiny I'd put him in the bouncer and put it right outside the shower and just let him chill in their while I showered. Now that he's bigger its a bit tougher. But now I give him my makeup bag and let him play with my makeup while I shower haha. That usually keeps him pretty busy long enough for me to take a shower.

You gotta make time for you! And that includes a shower! So do what you gotta to get one every day! I promise it will make you feel better and feel prettier!

2. Confidence happens from within!!

You can't fake confidence! Confidence is something that happens from within! You have to feel good about yourself for it to show through and for others to feel good about you! Some days I feel miserable. I feel fat, ugly, and unhappy. But then I tell myself ...I am a great wife and mom. My son and husband adore me. My husband finds me attractive and loves me for who I am. If you keep telling yourself your great, you will start to believe you are great and then everyone else will LOVE your confidence and agree that you are great!!!

3. You don't have to be rich to be beautiful!

This is sooo true! And one of the biggest myths ever! Yea it can get expensive trying to keep yourself up , but there are def ways to do it on a budget and for WAY less than you would think. Here are some things I do to keep myself looking sexy without spending out the butt!!
  • Don't spend $70+  at the hair salon! I buy the $3.97 Revlon hair color at walmart and it looks just as  good! They even have highlighting kits! If your nervous about doing it yourself, have a friend come over and help! It's very unlikely you will mess it up so bad you can't go out in public or anything!
  • Give yourself a pedicure at home! I buy the Avon footworks products..which includes a soak, a scrub, and awesome lotions and moisturizers! I can give myself a pedicure for half the price it costs at the salon! Feels just a great! Want the massage and pampering to go with it? Get hubby to give you a nice foot massage after you soak your feet in the awesome foot soak!
  • Target has lingerie just as cute as Victoria Secret! Want something sexy to show off your beautiful body? Don't waste all that money at VS when you can get sexy beautiful undies and nightgowns for way less at Target or Walmart! Believe me...your man won't know the difference!!!
  • You don't have to have a gym membership to stay in shape! There are so many ways to do it from home! I buy the workout dvds and do those while Noah naps. But you can walk or run while pushing the stroller around the block too! Whatever works best for you and makes you feel great!
Hope I helped! Let me know if you have any questions or want me to go over some other tips or a certain subject that pertains to this! Remember, you are one SEXY Mama!


  1. Thanks! I need to start putting makeup on everyday. Maybe now I'll be more motivated! :))

  2. I love Target! I just bought a great bra in there for only $12 cheap AND sexy lol. I never go to the gym anymore. My 15 month old is my new personal trainer!!

  3. Stopping by from the Wednesday Window. Great blog!

    Have a wonderful night!

  4. This is really a fantastic post, just what I needed. Thank you! It was so much easier back when I was in college and only had one son, now I have three sons, and I am lucky if I get to take a shower by myself:)

    I always try to take a shower in the morning though, as it really makes me feel refreshed and ready for the day.

    Thank you all for participating in the The Wednesday Window . I hope you will join me again next Wednesday.
