Quick Hair Style for Moms (When You Don’t Have Time to Shower!) | The Loose Romantic Braid
This tutorial is somewhat the opposite of a wet hairstyle. It’s for when you DON’T have time to shower and need a quick look that will disguise the matted mess. 😉 This look can be achieved on second, third or fourth day hair…
When Looking Put Together Doesn’t Come Easy

Little humans need our attention from the moment they’re up to the moment they’re back in bed. How do you find the time to think about what you’re wearing or about doing your hair and makeup?

(Part 2) Lipstick for Moms: How To Use LipSense For Those Rave-Worthy Results (+ Free Shipping!)
So you got your first LipSense Color and Gloss and you were so excited to try it but your lips started to flake and feel dry (it happened to me, and my hubby affectionately called them zombie lips). Or maybe the color didn’t stay on all day. Or you couldn’t get it off!
Here’s my guide on what to do about each of these LipSense issues, why they happen, how to get past them, and more. (You’ll probably throw your chapstick away by the end of this post…)
(Part 1) Lipstick for Moms: The Lip Color That Doesn’t Rub Off
How would you like to put on lipstick in the morning and not have to re-apply it for the entire day? Wouldn’t it be cool if you wear lipstick and still kiss your kids and husband without leaving smudges on them? Wouldn’t it be nice to go clothes shopping with your lipstick on and not worry about it coming off onto the clothes you try on? Do you wish lipstick could both pretty your lips while moisturizing…

Easy Mom Hair (Wet Hair Style): Headband Messy Bun
As much as we’d like our hair to bounce with fresh curls every morning, that’s just not mom life. While I’ve found a way to curl my long hair in under 13 minutes, I’m often in much more of a hurry and just out of the shower with sopping WET hair.

So with THAT reality in mind, here is the first of several “wet hair” styles I’ll be posting for you mamas. That’s right, these are hair styles you can create right out of the shower, no blow drying or wait time required…
