Oh the truth of this quote. First impressions are so important and people are very judgmental. There is never going to be a second chance for giving a first impression.
Having said that, I do check myself in the mirror, every time, baby clinging to my hip before I go out and by the time I reach my front gate there is no-doubt a lovely dollop of foul-smelling spit-up on my shoulder. I wouldn't subject anyone to my dark circles from late night feedings with a screaming baby, so although I have gone to the effort to do my makeup (thank you YSL Radiant Touch Pen!), by the time I reach public domain my hair is the key issue. Usually affected by the humidity, it has defied my tonne of hairspray and turned from a sleek chignon into a style reminiscent of a Diana Ross frizz-fest circa 1980.
That is all I have to say about that for now. Except this, leggings are not a substitute for trousers.
