Free ebook: From Frumps to Pumps

I’m so excited! My friend, Sarah Mae, just released a new ebook!

Frumps to Pumps is a one-month challenge to get dressed in the mornings. While that might seem like a weird to challenge to some of you who get up and get showered and dressed without even thinking about it. Some of us (ahem, that would be me!), have mornings when we struggle to get out of comfy PJs and into something more presentable.

I just read this book on the flight into the DR yesterday and loved it. Well, more like I was inspired and challenged by it. 🙂

At any rate, I’m excited because SarahMae is giving away a free copy of the ebook to anyone who subscribes to her blog. Head on over and subscribe and you’ll get your link to your free copy in the footer of the blog subscription.

Thanks, Alison!

    Thanks so much for sharing! I truly believe that all homemakers should treat their position as a professional job! No one shows up for work in their PJ’s except maybe teachers on PJ day! LOL

      Nice way to put it! Thanks for giving me some perspective on this. I really struggle with getting dressed “for no reason.” But I don’t want to pass on my bumminess (not a real word I’m sure) to my baby. This IS my job, and I should dress the part. Seems I get more done when I’m wearing jeans and a sweater than sweats and a tee anyway!

    One of the best things I learned from selling Mary Kay, is to get dressed, put on ‘my face’, and be ready to look what ever part I was going to be playing that day. I do come down in my PJ’s to have my first cup of coffee, and wake up… but I do shower & get dressed early. (if I shower early, my hubby gets woken up early, and gets annoyed) Make up doesn’t have to be elaborate… just a bit of liner, mascara and sometimes gloss…..

    I’m a SAHM, and I absolutely get dressed and put on makeup every day. Nothing fancy, but something in which I wouldn’t be embarrassed to step outside the house (jeans or denim shorts or something comfy but cute, NO sweatpants). I don’t necessarily do my hair every morning, but I’ll at least brush it and put it in a neat ponytail. I also put on my diamond studs every morning. It makes you feel better about yourself! At risk of sounding very 1950’s housewife, I also want to look presentable for my husband. I don’t want him to come home and I’m wearing lounge pants and no makeup. This really takes very little effort. I try to remember to even spritz myself with a little perfume when I know he will be home soon. These are just simple things I do that make me feel good about myself!

    I try to get up and dressed every day, but for me that’s a struggle. I’m ill and, not only is it difficult to find the motivation most mornings, I’m just not physically able to get up and get ‘er moving. Sometimes I’m in my pajamas all day, but at least the kids have been fed, changed, and are happy.

  • Julia says:

    I subscribed via RSS but then couldn’t figure out how to get the e-book without having to subscribe to emails as well. Any pointers anyone?

  • kristina says:

    Fingers crossed!! Signed up for the free 31 day cleaning book too but never received it.

  • Alison says:

    Thanks for sharing about it!
    I will admit,it sounds like a book I sorely need too! 😉 🙁

  • Meghan says:

    I find that my day goes so much smoother, I get so much more done, and I feel so much better if I am showered and dressed before my kids wake up. My routine is to wake up at 5, work out until 6(:15), make lunches and read email, etc until 6:45, then shower and get dressed before waking my kids up about 7:15. There are days this doesn’t happen, and some days it doesn’t go exactly like I plan, but if I do this routine my whole day gets off to a better start!

    For anyone looking to create a new habit, such as getting ready first thing in the morning, I would HIGHLY recommend “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business” by Charles Duhigg. It just came out at the end of February, and it is fascinating. The book is all about how we create habits, why habits “stick”, why we have habits, etc. It is so inspiring and motivating for anyone wanting to make changes. And, the more I think about it, getting ready first thing is probably a “keystone habit” (a habit that, when accomplished, makes other things easier and more likely to get done). Read the book and you’ll learn more!

    Crystal, thank you SO much for sharing my eBook with your readers, appreciate it so much! 🙂

  • Andrea says:

    This is very true. I don’t usually stay in my PJs but if I don’t fix my face or do my hair before I take kids to school then I don’t do it. Easy to get in a rut–I am right now so good reminder for me. 🙂

    Just pinned it!
