Hello my friends, what am I on about today you will probably be pondering... "Virginia Wolfe" a classic book from my dads old library which I confess I am yet to read, but growing up I loved books and particularly would make up stories from the titles and today I am referencing the non existent super mum police "Virginia Wolfe"
My daughter and I attended the stylist live event over the weekend as fashion is something that I am passionate about and fortunately can share with my daughter as in "I drag her along with me " as everyone else I know gets profoundly bored with my blubbering , so here we are.
While attending a talk by the pixiwoos ladies , the Chapman sister , two very successful intelligent makeup artists, YouTube vloggers, it became apparent that people are quite resentful of our "ever so perfect social media women" , perfect mothers producing perfect organic seaweed pancake to go with pink anti oxidant rich coconut juice infused with jenga for their toddlers on waiting lists for schools listed by tattler.....living in perfect homes with perfect makeup and couture inherited from Kiki😂😂😂😂😂
This my friends came from the audience as well as the panel and I just wondered , what really is wrong with wanting to be seen at your best? Is it because we paint an unattenable picture of successful lives hence predisposing others to a feeling of inadequacy and hence a breeding ground for depression ???
Well physicianmummyuk is definitely not about false impressions but I am just as vain as anyone else and is unlikely ever to post a close up of my face before 50 layers of Mac wrinkle blasting heavy cement level foundation applied after a night of rat poo face mask😉😉 I am unlikely to tell you about my freezer which by the way is full of reduced nearly 😉😉😜 out of date frozen to high heavens food with use by dates smudged out to prevent food police aka my daughter from checking and refusing to eat and spreading rumours to her siblings ... rumours 😂😂😂😂😂 no I will never write that on my blogggggg I might post a pic of the said envy inducing freezer 😜😜
But, I will say this, we are all clearly struggling but determined to have and provide a good quality of life for our little ones.
show our best face as you do and ever so tidy homes on social media as who has pictures of messy homes in their family album only the best or most decent gets in as life is full of badness so what's wrong with a little bit of escapism.
We encourage our children to study for years to get into grammar schools or just become the best they can be and talk about it with pride to the death of anyone listening ( I will talk more about this soon) and if we are lucky enough to win the lottery or remain in good terms with cranky pants Uncle Sam and he leaves us with a nice sum, get on those Tatler recommended school waiting list...
And wait for it....... share pictures from the first school PTA event in your perfect 2piece suit and pokey hat 😉
Moaning done, for now my friends enjoy pictures of my day out with Izzy and what our home really looks like in all it's imperfect glory 😜😜😜😜😜
oh and Izzy is wearing this awesome vintage jacket I found on eBay with a Gap cable knit jumper from last season and cat twinkly ballet flats from this season. My jacket is from @Zara, vintage Aran jumper and last seasons faux leather culottes and trainers.🙏🏾
