A sleep-deprived mama’s tools

As much as I think that I am Fabulously Gorgeous, the reality is, I look and feel pretty rundown most of the time. Like this.

Yes, I look like this on a regular basis. And yes, my husband took this photo. And yes, he does not sleep in the living room. I am a kind and gentle wife.

Anyhow. See, some lucky women can survive on very little sleep and still look fresh. Unfortunately, I am NOT one of those women. When I don’t have enough sleep, IT SHOWS. The eye bags are bulging, the eyes are red and the lines are especially deep. My face, the TRAITOR.

But rather than live in the past, I have decided that I need to have as many tools in my arsenal as possible to fight back. That’s right. TAKE THAT, EYEBAGS! AND YOU, CROW’S FEET!

Here are some of the things that keep me alive and looking alive.

1. Sunglasses
Ayyyyyy! These are the most perfect tools every woman should have in her bag. A super stylish pair of sunglasses can cover every single damned flaw, including those Prada eyebags.

Edit: Husband would like to point out that the sunglasses were a gift from him. Oh fine.
