lucky magazine asked us to partner up with celebrity spokeswoman and mom jaime pressly and a few bloggers to share some of our favorite tips on streamlining our morning routines, in conjunction with vaseline spray & go, a brand new, compressed air body moisturizer (doesn't gunk up between your fingers or in your rings when you apply it--genius).
and so! here are my best tricks for speeding up a morning routine:
shower at night // when huck was a newborn i quickly realized that morning showers were no longer gonna work. with my new mom nerves i could never convince myself that huck was totally safe in his swing or bouncer without constant monitoring, and i was fairly convinced he going to choke or something while i was in there with the shower curtain closed. i switched to a nighttime shower, after baby was asleep or once daddy was home to help out. this has saved me a lot of time in the morning, and who wants to wake up twenty minutes early for a shower anyway, kids or no kids?
use multitasking beauty products // i like really good bb creams or tinted moisturizers so i don't have to fuss with foundation, and i love double duty products like cream blushes that also work as lip color. and of course there's my fake lash addiction... i can put those on faster than it would take to apply a few careful swipes of mascara. (extensions are especially great, if you have room for it in your budget.)
have a go-to hair style in your arsenal that doesn't take a lot of time and always looks good // a slouchy pony tail, or maybe a deep side part with a sparkly barrette (trés trendy right now). sometimes i like to remind myself that the french almost never have perfect hair, and if it's good enough for the french . . .
have a momiform // a momiform is a dumb word for a brilliant idea, just an outfit that you can wear multiple days a week because you have enough of the basics on hand at all times, that you always feel put together in. here is mine:
