|before i got hitched|
But married life has altered me completely. Suddenly I didn't find the need to dress up so much. Salon visits were trimmed down to twice yearly frequency. Haha! talk about being considered sold in the market. It was like this for a time until another change gave me another perspective in life - I became someone else's mom!
|with my little kikay baby|
Being a mommy suddenly gave me a lot of reasons to be conscious of my appearance. The rebirth of the "kikay in me". Well of course if you want your little girl to be proud of her mom, it doesn't help wearing "dasters" and no make-up. Suddenly, i didn't want to be mistaken as my child's yaya instead of the cool mom. :) I was scheduling monthly facial sessions at Hairs and Nails Salon, growing my hair long and having hair spas whenever time and money allows it. Suddenly I was visiting the blogs of fashionistas like Kikay Much, Get Prettified, and being addicted to Shoppingera. It follows that showing a little "kikayness" also brought about the doting mom in me. I was making a fuss about my daughter's clothes, her hair clips that should match and the shoes that go with it. Simply put, being a mom is a new realization, a reawakening of the kikay in me. Suddenly, looking and feeling beautiful has taken on a new meaning, if only for the eyes of my little girl who seem to idolize her mommy. :)
