So I know you've all been dying to know - What are my Style secrets? Every time I leaf through a magazine to read some celeb's favorites list, I can totally relate to everything on the page. After all, I am The Ultimate It Mom. It is so apparent that my middle name is Style (and you just thought the E stood for Elizabeth, or maybe you were confused by the Beth - it's all a ploy to keep you guessing just like Madonna). In fact, when I read people's minds, I hear them think - "Is she the lost Kardashian sister? She's got the Style, but I'm confused by the Master's degrees and correct grammar. And Style would be a really cool unique celeb baby name."
Well, guess no longer. I'm going to give you my Favorites List so you too can be The Ultimate It Mom like me.
Victoria Secret 5 for $26 panties. I might give up a non important body party for these panties, they are so great. They used to be 5 for $25 so you can see it's been a while since I bought some. Great colors, perfect fit, no riding in the wrong places and they make my Kim Kardashian-esque butt look kind of cute if I do say so myself.
Gap 1969 Curvy Jeans They are a little steep at $69 but I bought them with a Groupon over a year ago and they are always my go-to jeans. I shed a small tear when I want to wear them and they are past the dirty threshold. I would spend $69 today for a new pair if I had $69. Thus, my ongoing comparison of myself to Kim Kardashian is losing some footing.
Basically anything from The Body Shop but I especially love their shower gel and carrot moisture cream. Somehow I have ended up with about 5 containers of this stuff, they have great sales around the holidays and I stock up! Great for hands, face, feet, body --- LOVE. Here I must mention I don't really even really know who the Kardashians are.
I just discovered Neutrogena Naturals and am really loving the Fresh Cleansing + Makeup remover and matching moisturizer (Walgreens fake brand). Great for It Moms like Me because it is a multi-tasker. It and I have a lot in common, actually. I'm good at removing makeup from my children and I multi-task.
So I have curly hair and it is unruly. My comparison with the Kardashians is, I believe, shattered. I am really a mess and pretty much all-around fashion faux-pas and my style choices are based on 1) practicality, 2) trying to look unique kind of like Blossom or Clarissa Explains it All (I am sooooo dating myself) and 3) avoiding looking tired or like I'm wearing food. Still - like you, dear reader, I am an It Mom and these products make It Work and I Love Paul Mitchell's sculpting cream because it makes my curly hair look like it's supposed to be that way. It creates the illusion of time and effort. I Love fashion Illusions!
Finally, I love Scentsy not only because I sell it, but because it smells so good and creates the illusions of lack of negative odors in our house. I'm not saying our house smells bad, but it smells soooo much better with Scentsy.
I also love my go-to mommy purse that my dear friend Alicia gave me. I love my Coach purses, but there's something about a big professional looking bag that you can throw a lot of junk in and still look nice can't be beat. I don't have a picture of it, but here's a nice one on clearance at JC Penney that I like - and the price is right at $23.99. Eat THAT Kim Kardashian!
