Yummy Mummy meme

Ok so I've got a laptop, finally!  It's not mine but it does the job and will be keeping me company until mine comes home.  Before I go into all my goings on I've decided I'd join in with a meme (Yummy Mummy) as I have been tagged by the wonderful single married mum.

I know I'm beautiful (wink,wink) but as far as beauty regimes go I have to admit that of all the things I'm good at maintaining, a beauty regime is not one of them but here goes...

The Rules
When answering the questions, give as much detail as possible.  It's all about the finer details people!
Leave a comment Here (Busybemummybex blog where the meme was created)
Tag three or more people and link them on your blog.
Tweet #yummy mummy when you share on Twitter.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
The simple answer to this would be I don't wake up, I'm woken up!  Usually by my youngest munchkin who has now discovered if he pulls my top in the right direction he can gain access to his milk source without having to wait for mummy who takes way too long making sure she's not exposing herself to the world!  This is of course ok first thing in the morning as it's just us, but in the middle of the busy shopping centre on a Saturday afternoon, not so great.

Do you shower Daily?  Are you an early morning shower or an evening bath type?
If possible I like to shower twice a day, I know it may be a bit excessive but I love the refreshed feeling that I get after showing.  Since Daniel was born my showers are often very rushed the morning shower is usually shared with him and the evening shower, thanks to my daughter being my 20minute babysitter is had all to myself.

Do you wear makeup daily?
The answer to this is no, I'm not even sure if I own any makeup.  If I'm going on a night out i'm likely to pop to the shops and pick up a mascara and if I'm feeling really daring i'll grab an eyeliner and some eye shadow too.  When the night is over they usually end up in the bin or in the pre-teen princesses room.

What's in your makeup bag?
What's a makeup bag?  Does Vaseline count?

When you're having a slummy mummy day what do you usually wear?
jogging bottoms and a t-shirt, not that I'm much more sophisticated at other times.

Nails - How often do you get them done?
For about two months of my life I had my nails done every two weeks but I quickly got fed up of maintaining them and now never get my nails done.  I slap a bit of nail varnish on now and again and am usually still wearing it whilst it's peeling off.

Your top tips for tired eyes?
Sleep.  I don't get enough of that but my daughter informs me that I don't have bags so I'm happy for the day.

Are you a Starbucks or a Costa Coffee kind of girl?
Although I don't like to drink coffee outside the house (they never make it to my taste) I'm a Starbucks girl at the moment purely because I like their caramel hot chocolate.  I like Costa too but since leaving uni (which had a Costa right next door)  I don't really go anymore.

How many children do you have/want?
When I was younger I used to say I wanted a football team (11) but after having my second I am finished.  There is a 12 year difference between my two beauties and being blessed with one of each I'm very happy.  My labour with my daughter was long but the birth was easy however my son was a completely different story.

Where is your favourite place to shop for babies/children's clothes?
For my son, who is 10 months my favourite place is H&M with the odd item from House of Fraser (Ralph or Gap).  For my daughter New Look and again H&M.

Flats or heels - every day shoes are?
Flats all day every day, unless I'm on a night out.  As a teen I used to live in heels, mostly due to compensating for my height (5 foot 2), but when I got pregnant with my daughter that all changed.  I could no longer stand wearing heels and now I'm not bothered about being short so will always pick comfort over fashion.

I'm going to tag these lovely ladies and even if they don't join in their blogs are more than worth a read, Natalie over at The Accidental Mogul, Mental mum's little world and Claire at Adventures in Singapore


  1. Aww thanks for the tag hun, my responses will be much like yours methinks. I've never really been into the whole appearance thing, much to my dismay. Getting better with age. Will def try and join in.

    Glad you're back x

  2. Thanks for the tag! You have solved my "What will I blog about tomorrow?" dilemma perfectly. I have to admit though our answers would be spookily similar. I am sure Vaseline counts as makeup!

  3. Wow, you were quick! Thanks for doing the meme - great answers and lots of nodding from me.
    Would you like to do another one?? I'm drowning in a sea of memes at the moment!
    Lovely to have you back x

    1. No problem, I am happy to join in any memes as long as I have time; Glad to be back and thank you for tagging me x
