My Love/Hate Relationship with Pinterest

I know I gush about casually mention Pinterest often but let me dedicate an entire post to this lovely yet evil little gem. It’s a great time-waster, idea finder, inspiration, etc. The problem is, it has become an obsession that I, apparently, wasn’t prepared to deal with. Lately, it’s been fashion. Clothes, makeup, hair, shoes, nail polish…

*Mini rant about nail polish: I absolutely cannot stand the trend of nail art and/or glitter on just the ring fingers. It looks like a 5 year old’s idea and I’m not impressed.*

So all weekend, I’ve been getting more anxious and frustrated over the fact that I hate all of my clothes. I don’t have a single pair of jeans that fit me “just right”, I have ZERO pairs of flats that I am willing to wear in public (tennis shoes and flip flops are it for me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ), the few cute clothes I have stay hidden because the bra it requires is uncomfortable (that one is my own fault, ya know, the fake ta-ta’s and all…) and let’s face it, I’m a SAHM so going to the grocery store is about it for me. I have a hard time justifying spending money on looking good. But I know myself and I know that I feel better when I look better. I know what I need to do but it hurts to spend money! Totally just showed my cheap side there. Maybe I should start working again to justify buying cute clothes… Or maybe I’m having a quarter life crisis at 26 and finally realizing that I’m not in my cool 20’s anymore.

Yes, I’d love some cheese with my whine.

Hair. I FINALLY have long enough hair to do all those gorgeous things that I’ve been drooling over since becoming a hairdresser. Except, I’m a SAHM and have no reason to spend that much time on myself, just to go to a play date where I’ll be chasing Lil Miss all over a playground. I don’t want to be THAT mom. I miss feeling pretty. Maybe I need a weekly ladies night! We can do each others nails and makeup and watch movies starring hot guys (Fight Club, Step Up, Magic Mike, you get the idea…).

And this post is the winner of Most Depressing Post Ever.

Why, yes, Wonka, apparently they did.

    haha, I can totally relate! Only now my wardrobe includes khakies and a polo once a week, who feels hot in a polo, NOT ME!! Just think in a few short months, you will have a baby sucking all teh unwanted pounds right out of you and all of your clothes will fit like a supermodel!!!

    How did I not know about the fake ta-ta’s?? Guess who’s going to go look at some Brit pics on FB right now?! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I TOTALLY think you need to have at least a monthly girl’s night. You need it for sanity, and for a reason to get dressed up. I just wish I lived closer so I could be there with you!! And how much longer am I gonna have to wait to get a baby bump pic?!?!
