The change room of doom and how it stole my day.

Today I had one of those moments where you take a step back and ask the universe. "WTF?! Are you kidding me?!"

I ducked into my local shopping centre to grab some new jeans as I've lost some weight recently (FINALLY!) and my pants keep falling down and presenting by backside to the world.

Feeling pretty awesome about myself and my recent slim-ish-ness (new word for everyone right there) I grabbed the things I wanted to try on an headed for the change room.

That's when everything started turning for me. Here I am thinking I looked ok, no makeup but that's no biggie, and had done the school run so was dressed accordingly. You know one of those days where you are feeling pretty good about yourself.

The mirror on the other hand thought differently. It went out of its way to amplify every issue as I was trying things on. I had no idea my regrowth was so bad! I hadn't realised my legs were starting to resemble old growth forrests. Why for the love of god was I wearing the dodgiest undies I own! I look like a lizard and need to exfoliate STAT! And so on and so forth.

My day was supposed to be super productive and I had plans to make the best use of my kid free time.

Oh no! After my run in with the change room of doom I had to go home and colour my hair, shave my legs and remove all strange flakes of skin attached to my body.

Needless to say. Today has NOT gone to plan. How did all those seemingly small beauty related tasks I had put off for a while add up to sponge most of my day away!

I promise I had a really awesome post planned out for just didn't happen. Dammit!

Have you ever felt like you have lost an entire day?




  1. Oh man so many days end up like this for me. I have plans to do x and end up doing y instead. I also resemble a lizard without my clothes on. Winter is so rough on your skin!

  2. Oh I completely know what you mean! You poor thing! I hope that you soon realised that you are gorgeous and lovely and adored by many so clearly a little bit of hair (or hair the wrong colour) isn't much of a problem at all! The fact that you can dye your own hair makes you WAY cooler than me anyway!

  3. Change room mirrors are not to be trusted! I hope you find some nice jeans though :) going down a size is so exciting!

  4. I only shop when I am feeling SUPER BEAUTIFUL. Then I buy the entire store.

  5. Absolutely!!!! I hate it when that happens!!!!!, I'm with Sarah, I hope you found some nice jeans in the end!!!!
