being mum//school drop-off essentials

I have a dream. In that dream I don't have anxiety or depression. I don't struggle to get out of bed. I am not always exhausted. I look flawless at school drop off and pick up. I am content staying at home even while B. is at school. I exercise every day and bake cookies and have dinner waiting for my Husband when he gets home. Sadly, for my dreams at least, I am none of those things. I bake cookies, sure, but aside from that my dreams falter.

When it comes to school drop off most of the time I look like I've just rolled out of bed which I despise. I tried to be the mum who looks amazing at drop-off but it was too bloody difficult. Bed is too comfy. Here are some things that make the school drop-off easier --


^Lately I have been throwing on my exercise clothes -- a comfy pair of exercise tights, sports bra, stupid shirt and my Nike's which I'm still obsessed with. They're also super comfy and perfect for doing some proper walking on the way home either with a doggy or without.

^I splash my face every morning but since I know I'm going to get all sweaty on the walk home I don't have a shower until after I've dropped B. off. After drying my face I put some of the Garnier Micellar Water on a cotton pad and wash my face so I feel nice and fresh. Then I spritz with The Body Shop Vitamin C Face Spritz and add a layer of the Burt's Bees Hydrating Lip Balm in Coconut & Pear on my lips.

^As I'm heading out the door I spray some of The Body Shop Strawberry Fragrance on my wrists and slip on these Quay sunglasses {that are surprisingly perfect for prescription glasses wearers} and off we go.
