Rocker Mom: Embracing My Many Alter Egos






Here is my take on rocker mom. Its not my everyday look, but it is a look that I enjoy sporting once in a while. Sometimes I get bored being just plain old mom. Inside all of us we have a silent partner, an alter ego that itches to be set free. I confess I have many. This is not surprising at all for those who know me and its pretty typical of most Geminis. I sported this look for date night with hubby this evening who took one look at me and gave me that certain smile that made me throw my head back and laugh and made me forget that I own a diaper bag. I paired this top with a pair of jeans, patent leather and cork wedge heels from Betseyville, silver jewelry, a black wooden bangle and my cuff watch. When I wear my hair straight I often get inspired to sport an edgier look.

On my face:

Foundation: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and NW20 Select Cover Concealer

Cheeks: No7 Bronzer in Medium on cheekbones and some contour, MAC Tenerling Sheertone blush on apples of cheeks

Eyes: Annabelle Blue Kohl Liner and MAC Paint Pot in Delft all over lid (amazing blue colour btw). MAC Kid eyeshadow in crease. No highlight color on brow and L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Black

Lips: A hint of MAC's New York Apple lipstick blotted with tissue.

Thanks for stopping by. xxNadia

Love the photo in which you sport a 'rocky' expression! I think it looks great, nobody would ever suspect you're a momma, rather a crazy partying 20 years old! Good job :) xxx

Ahh what a hottie! Love this look, you pull it off so well :) especially loving the fringe xox

Gail said...

Nadia you still manage to look really girly!! It's definitely your alter ego but you're too dainty to ever pull off the scary biker chick, it does make you look a lot like Penelope Cruz though!! And also reminds me of a pretty Irish band from a million years ago called The Corrs.(sp?)

You should make this into a series of all your alter egos haha xxxx
