A long time ago, in the days of our mothers and grandmothers, there was this belief that a married woman was free to let herself go; no need to look hot or attractive anymore. Thankfully, those days are long over or they’ve become extinct.
With that in mind, the Hot Sexy Mama column on Naija Wives is dedicated to remaining hot and sexy even after several children. Sexiness is in the way we dress, the lingerie we wear, the way we keep our hair, our personal hygiene and how adventurous we are in and out of the bedroom.
Before we go into today’s topic, I probably should introduce myself. My name is Nadia. It’s not my real name, obviously. I could be Shade, or Ngozi, or Boma or Halima, but Nadia will do for now. I’m a mom and a Naija Housewife. I’m a full-time stay-at-home housewife and for us, the tendency is to let ourselves go. We hardly go out, we don’t get to see office peeps, so really, kini big deal.
But I’m fighting against that, and I’m here to help you too. Letting yourself go is complacency, nothing more. Even if your husband is the Bishop of the world, don’t think that he won’t notice other women. All men do. So you need to stay on top of your game.
Let me be clear, even if you were Miss Universe, a cheating man is still a cheating man. So this is not a place to learn how to stop your man from cheating. You might need to see your pastor for that.
So on to the topic…
How do you dress at home?
Are you one of those who wakes up in the morning, ties a towel around her chest with a hairnet (or God forbid, a shower cap) on your head? Or do you just put on an old track suit and go about your day? I know what you’re probably thinking…what’s wrong with that, right? Well, it is possible to look nice and presentable in the morning without too much effort. Here are a few things you can do:
- ALWAYS cleanse your face the night before. So no ugly mascara streaking down your face.
- Invest in negligee and a housecoat.
- If you’re not the lingerie type, think of a sexy, shorts/vest ensemble.
- Invest in one of those nice looking hair nets or use a silk scarf if you have one.
You don’t have to look like your grandma first thing in the morning. I know you might be tired and at 5am in the morning, that’s the last thing on your mind. But knowing you look nice can act as a boost for you and help you feel good throughout the day.
