ABOUT ME

Being a mom is hard. After I gave birth to my daughter I found myself exhausted and not feeling very glamorous. I didn’t fit into any of my clothes, have time for a shower, and forget about putting makeup on! The only thing that made me feel better was to put my daughter in cute outfits. Luckily, I have great friends and family who donate to Amelia’s wardrobe on a regular basis. Then I started to dress up myself and I felt even better. Most days I don’t have much time to get a fabulous outfit together and when I do it usually gets covered in poop, pee, or puke by the end of the day. Despite this I still make an effort to put something fashionable on ever day. I am not a size 0 runway model and sometimes my hair is messy or I have wrinkly clothes. I am a real woman who takes inspiration from her everyday life and does her best to stay glamorous despite the mess.

Whether you are a busy stay at home mom or a career woman if you still try to be glamorous no matter what is happening in your life this blog is dedicated to you.

Stay Glamorous,

Shannon

  1. Love this!
    I’m a new mom myself (11/11/11), after 11 1/2 yrs., so I’m learning all over again.
    I’m like you, if my son is dressed cute, who cares what I look like, although I do usually get a shower, b/c my son likes the sound of running water, however, once its off, he’s up & ready, so no glam for me… LOL
    Can’t wait to read more.

  7. I read about your blog on Twitter and I have to admit your url (pooppeepuke.com) brought a smile to my face. I am a stay at home mother to a very active 2 year old boy (Jace) and on Dec. 9th 2011 we welcomed our second little boy (Jackson). Going from being a mother of 1 to 2 has been really hectic, I feel like I have to schedule time just to shave my legs lol 🙂 but life is all its crazyness is completely perfect there is nothing more wonderful than being a mommy!

  8. Hey! I love your blog!! I am a teenager no where near becoming a mom but I still love your blog because your not scared to be your self and to say what you want! I think the no photo shop rule is great to show everyone has bad days or stressful days in life. I love your and A’s style I wish I could pull it all off you rock it girl keep it up!! ❤ stay beautiful!!:)

    • Thank you Lindsey. Yes, I believe photo shop is the cause of a lot of issues in the world. I was shocked when I was an actress and they photo shopped my one crooked tooth. I always thought it added character but they took it out of the picture in like one second.

  14. i was curious… so i googled this webpage…. started reading your blogs and ‘adventures’ and struggles in finding balance in being a super mom AND still feeling like a woman! :p
    i myself am a mom of five…. the eldest is now 18, one is 17 and my triplets are now 15….. well, i lived almost all those years like in a haze of nurturing,doing laundry, being a mostly perfect mom. it took me a couple of years to shed the joggings and my standard ponytail hahaha .
    You’re doing great!!! Enjoy your little princess A,stay glamorous and keep posting blogs….

  17. Hi Shannon! Thanks for the great reading from your blog. I’m too a mum of 1 (son born about 2.5 weeks before Princess A). I love being able to wake up every morning and reading about what you have to say (the perks of living Down Under and the great time difference) and seeing Princess A in her cute outfits. I must send you a pic of my son in his daily outfits 🙂

  18. Hey Shannon, just want to say keep up all the good work with your blog. I enjoy it so much 🙂 I’m a single mum to my handsome son Cody, who is 4. I have brought him up on my own since he was 5mths (as his father decided to walk out on us) and have been through depression and to not being so glam, but it was my son and my family that got me through all the hard times and now life is so much better knowing that i wasn’t the only mum going through all this 🙂 but now, my mum has been diagnosed with breast cancer and life is just shit (no other word to describe it sorry) and everyday i look forward to your blog and reading about your epic stuff and of course seeing the beautiful pictures of Princess A. Keep up the great work, and hope someday you’ll make your way to Australia with Princess A, you’ll love it here, cause we’re all about Glam aswell 🙂 Love to you and Princess A xoxoxo

    • Lisa, I am so glad you like my blog and your story brought tears to my eyes. I hope everything gets better! I went to Australia as a kid and loved it!!!!!! I really hope I get to go back one day!
