I’ve only managed to get through the last two horribly sleep deprived weeks through a combination of extreme amounts of coffee and a quick slick of red lippy.
Colleagues seem to have missed the fact that I’ve been barely able to keep my eyes open after lunch (or in fact at any point from first meeting until last meeting) and haven’t picked up on the steamer trunk sized bags under my eyes.
This isn’t due to any genius on my part but I reckon purely to my lipstick.
In the past it has hidden two pregnancies and several hangovers but now it’s coming into its own – now it is able to make me look like a responsible, alert worker rather than the sleep deprived, rest obsessed Mum of two that I appear to have turned into on the inside.
On the plus side BOTH OF THEM slept last night – perhaps we have managed to survive the first of the winter bugs. Just have to hope the next one holds off for long enough for us to recover.
Have you any other beauty tips to help me fake it through the winter months? Answers on a post card please!
And finally a couple of random things to help make your money go further in the run up to Christmas.
