Fight The Frump - No More Shlumpadinkas!

I just finished watching yesterday’s Oprah – “Shlumpadinka Makeovers.” You know the look (well – I do, anyway)….”dressy” sweatpants, over-sized sweatshirts, Mom jeans (gasp!). In this episode, several “schlumpadinka Moms” were given wardrobe makeovers. Although they primarily shopped at affordable stores, the looks created still take a big chunk of change. Maybe you can’t afford the $80-some dollar perfect fitted white cotton button-down shirt from Brooks Brothers, but you CAN take the must-have make-up advice from Oprah’s experts. (follow link below).

SOOOOO…..in effort to help all of you (and I’m soo with you on this my sistahs) fight the schlumpadinkas…..I wanted to remind you that concealer, lip gloss and a little cheek color are an incredibly affordable start to fighting the frump. Go to
www.marykay.com and look around. I have some INCREDIBLE lip glosses that’ll kick-start your own schlumpadinka makeovers. Once you’ve looked over the lip gloss colors, the concealers, the cheek colors and more – email me your favorites and I’ll place your order (or leave me a comment with how I can reach you) – you’ll be a fump-fightin’ mama in less than 2 weeks time. =-)

Put the word “schlumpadinka” in the subject line of your email to me and I’ll take 10% off of your order of $25 or more.

Thanks for taking a look!

I just watched that episode of Oprah that I TiVo'd! I didn't realize how much of a schlumpadinka that I really am!! I wish I could drop $100 on one outfit right now!! I guess I just try to spice it up with a little makeup, too! It is especially hard being 3 mo post pardom!
