We all know how it’s like to be a working mom. Even if you are blessed with a partner who shares the chores and half the work load, it still can feel quite overwhelming at times. Often, we find ourselves juggling so many things, it feels nearly impossible to keep them all in the air. And mornings can be the hardest; especially if you have kids who are old enough to be schooling. Then there’s the last minute missing things, the breakfasts that needs to be downed, the frantic rush to the school bus, and then the mad rush to get dressed and to work. If the above described your mornings, then no doubt you don’t have a lot of time to think about how you look in the mornings. But if you’re tired of looking like the “harassed mom”, and want to make sure you look good, even with the rushed mornings, here are our tips for you.
The night affects the mornings
Try to get to bed earlier. Trust us, this matters. With a goodnight’s sleep, you’ll be able to wake up earlier, giving you plenty of time to get your children ready, and get your own things going. Having proper sleep also makes you look better; which means you need to spend less time hiding the dark circles and the tired skin.
Do a little weekly preparation
Organize your weekly schedule, and allocate a day for preparing the outfits of the week; both for yourself, and your children. Have everything from their socks to their underclothes ready for the week, and do the same for yourself. Having your outfits prepared will give you more time to dress in the mornings, as you are not rushing around, looking for something to wear. If you like having your nails done by SNS nails in Melbourne, we suggest that you buy gel nail polish kits and have it done on your free day so it’s fresh throughout the week.
Apart from organizing your week, it’s also a great idea to organize your makeup, and other things that you need to prepare for the mornings. These also include the blow-drier. If you are fond of OPI nail polish, different eyeshadows, and a variety of lip colors, then no doubt having them all in a pile can only make it harder to get what you are looking for. This inevitably causes you to either go without it, or get flustered and causing you to do a messy job with your makeup. If you don’t have these rushed mornings too often, then have a specific look (makeup, hair-do, easy to wear clothes) for those days. Keep all that you need in a bag in the bathroom, or a drawer somewhere convenient. Practice and perfect a look so that you can get it perfect, even when you’re rushed.
