Typing in the words “Mummy Makeover” into google I thought I would get ideas on how to freshen up my image … how VERY wrong I could be!
Instead of getting a huge choice of hairstyles, clothing choices and fitness regimes I was instead presented with thousands upon thousands of pages touting cosmetic procedures that will cut, suck, strip and blast away any sign that I ever went through child birth! Clicking the image tab on a google search for “mummy makeover” only horrified me even more! Every image for pages and pages shows before and after pictures of women who have paid thousand of dollars to have themselves surgically enhanced.
Now, I don’t hold any opinion on a persons choice to undergo surgery, it is after all their own choice. But I certainly was not expecting every image and page on the topic of a mummy makeover to be referencing surgery. In all honesty I was hoping to see before and after pictures of mums who had a cute haircut, some on trend clothes and perhaps shed a few unwanted kilos!
I’m not sure how to feel at the moment.
I have two weeks before I head off on the trip of a lifetime, just hubby and I, to Europe. I thought I would treat myself to a new hair cut, colour and style as well as a fresh new wardrobe that suites the me I am today. Obviously we will be taking a huge amount of photos on our trip and I hope to be able to look back on these images in the future without contempt for my dowdy appearance. There is not a whole lot I can do as far as extreme makeovers go in the space of two weeks, and honestly I am not one to go under the knife for anything other than for medical necessities.
So here I am, searching the internet for inspiration on how to update my style, and I’m bombarded by images and websites trying to sell me on the idea of all things nip and tuck. I honestly had no intention of posting my current frumpy mummy status here but feel that perhaps my next post will include a before and after picture of me sporting my uninteresting hair, boring clothes, and general frumpiness juxtaposed with a new cut/colour, makeup and bright fresh wardrobe (on a budget).
Have you ever had a makeover? Did it include cosmetic surgery or was it a purely no cut (except for hair) procedure?
