The mornings can be rough as we attempt to get lunches made, kids dressed, coffee down our throats, teeth brushed, back packs on, etc. But what about us? Don’t forget about us Moms/Mums!
Here are five super easy tips to help you rock it out the door. Tips to help you feeling and looking good — from the inside out.
I have always believed that lipstick is like a magic wand. It can truly turn any frown upside down. A shot of color, however bold or subtle you desire, can perk you up – it’s like a shot of espresso. As winter comes along, your moisturized lips will thank you. Muah.
2. Celebrity sunglasses
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to make eye contact until I’ve had a chance to grab my latte on the way home from my school run. So, along with my signature red lips, celebrity sunglasses are a great touch. Hide yesterday’s make-up, the rough night with the baby, the late night watching House of Cards. No one will be the wiser!
3. A funky tracksuit
An outfit you can throw on in a New York minute should be a staple in any wardrobe. A tracksuit allows you to layer as we transition from fall to winter, and back into spring.
4. Fruit-infused water bottle
You will thank yourself later if you begin water intake from the moment your feet hit the floor. Your system will kick-start with the burst of fruity vitamins. Have this ready the night before and waiting in the kitchen for you upon rising. (Tip: I use a straw throughout the day and it really makes difference in the amount of water I drink).
5. Bike or walk to school
It’s a reat chance to hit two birds with one stone. By the time you get back from the school run, you’ve got some air in your lungs and will be feeling more pumped to get into your day.
I hope these 5 tips will have you feeling more ready to take on the crazy school mornings. If we feel good on the inside, it will show on the outside.
