It’s one of those mornings where nothing is going smoothly! No time for Mama to shower and get ready or eat (barely time for even the kid’s to eat…) so what now?! How am I going to get through the morning and get the kid’s to school without looking like I haven’t slept in days and at least changing out of my PJs. A few quick fixes is all it takes to turn Mama’s morning from upside down to sunny side-up. Here’s a few of my secrets…shhh…don’t tell!
Miracle Worker — Mama loves her Shampowder dry shampoo! What Mama has time to wash their hair everyday…not me (hand is raised)! In fact, you shouldn’t wash your hair everyday as you could be stripping your strands of the good oils. This miracle product is designed to volumize, deodorize and revive your hair between washings. It comes in three shades for blonde, brunette/red and black hair. Not to mention that it’s vanilla scented…not overpowering but just enough to make you feel like the sassy Mama that you are! Available at ButtercreamCosmetics.com, $15.99.
Strap-it on — okay, so I’m not usually into the “As Seen On TV” but seriously, listen up when the Strap Perfect commercial comes on. Come spring and summer, those little tanks with the strappy, straps are too hard to pass up so in comes Strap Perfect which clips your bra straps together to conceal beneath the shirt. No more horrid bra strap sightings for Mama! Available at Amazon.com, $11.
Zap it — nothing like waking up to find a nice blaring red spot staring at you! Dry it out in 24 hours or less with Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. It’s amazing and should be in your medicine cabinet in case of emergency. Zit + Drying Lotion = STAT! Available at Nordstrom.com, $17.
Cover it up — no time to brush the hair or use Shampowder?! Time to accessorize and throw on a cute hat to not only cover your hair but also shade your eyes that have not been de-puffed and primped. Mama loves the new Military Cap from Juicy Couture. It’s simple and stylish! Available at Nordstrom.com, $48.
30 seconds left — don’t EVER leave the house without sunscreen (try Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer, SPF-45, $17, for a dual-purpose product), then top with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $42, and finish off with Lancome Oscillation Vibrating Mascara, $34.
