I'm No Fashion Guru

or, In Desperate Need of Fashion Tips for an Extremely Busy Mom!

As I've said before, I'm no fashion guru. Right now I'm having a serious fashion crisis! My mornings are hectic. They begin at 6-6:30am, I have to have all the kids at school no later than 8:30am. I don't have time to worry about my image when I'm getting them ready. But last week I actually walked out the house wearing the following:
  • Blue jeans
  • Dark orange colored, v-neck shirt
  • a gray hoodie
  • black sneakers
  • huge brown purse

I almost called the fashion police on myself. My wardrobe consists of mostly comfortable, casual wear. But that does not give me the excuse to walk out the house completely mismatched with my hair in a ponytail.

This was just a once in a Blue Moon type of thing. I'll blame it on the fact that I was running late. Thank goodness that no one threw out the stereo type that people so often say when someone doesn't match.

But really, I do neglect myself a lot. When you have children, a fiance and a job, it's hard to find time for yourself. So my hair is almost always in a pony tail. My clothes are usually jeans, hoodies, t-shirts, sneakers and big purses. I always carry a big bag because I can fit my stuff and whatever the kids need in it. I don't think I have to mention that I don't wear make-up anymore. Can't remember the last time I put it on.

What I'm seeking is some quick fashion tips that I won't have to go out of my way to pull off. Something that will help me look...cuter (Is that a word? cuter...more cute...oh, yeah, it is).

I think I might go window shopping this weekend to see if I can find some better looking casual wear.

How to Cheat without Getting Caught (What I've Learned from Men)

I remember being cheated on. I remember catching him red handed and listening as he denied the whole thing. I remember wondering if the other woman knew he was married. Odds are, she probably did. I didn't understand it and the truth is, I didn't need to. I just needed to remove myself from the situation. My ex was careless in his cheating. After my experience I began watching how men & women cheat. Cousins, friends, co-workers - it seems that everyone has a "Sneaky Link" or a "Secret Bae." And although the memes would have you thinking otherwise, it's not cute. But still, it's interesting. So here are some of the best tips I've learned on how to cheat without getting caught:  1. Let the person you are cheating with know that you are already married, or in a relationship. Have this conversation with the person from the beginning so they know their role, and so that you can establish boundaries. Be clear that you will not be leaving your spou
