Today I am sharing with you five things that have helped speed up my routine every day. Taking care of myself is usually somewhere on the bottom of my to do list. I have learned a few tricks to ensure your in tip top shape regardless if you have 5 minutes or 50 to get ready every day.
Every day I start my day basically the same, I have coffee get the kids up and have a gluten free bagel with soy butter and cream cheese…. then before we leave I have a PROTEIN SHAKE FROM VITAMIN SHOPPE. Shop VitaminShoppe.com!” Vitamin shoppe offers free shipping on orders over $25
Another way to make sure your in get up and go form is to keep your skin tanned and toned with a spray tan. when I am Tan I feel like I can just get up and go without makeup!
I dont know if this is proper or not but I also dont brush the tangles out of my hair until after its partially dry, because by that point most of the tangles are out of my hair anyways. so that saves me a good 10 minutes because my hair is so thin and fragile I have to be super careful combing. I also love this blow dry spray which lessens the time it takes to dry my hair!!
Another way I have been saving time recently is by SKIPPING MASCARA! Yup, I got lash extensions and I am now a believer that they’re the best investment you can make in yourself. LAVISH LASH is the best you can get, you can click HERE and find a salon near you.
Finally my favorite tip of all which involves my TIMEX WATCH. Wearing a watch helps me stay on schedule. I always make an agenda and stick to a routine. As a stay at home mom my life feels like a circus and when I go out with the kids it’s like a dog and pony show just getting through target… but I start my day thinking of what I need to accomplish, I race to get ready and packed up by the time it’s time for Kalvin’s morning nap and then we all get in the car. I let Kalvin nap in the car, I’ll catch up on emails quick if I have to or just relax while Koko watches a show in the back seat, it’s kind of all our relaxing time… then we rush to get everything done and get back home. I like to be home for lunch so that an afternoon nap happens at home, it doesn’t always happen that way and that’s ok too…
wearing my TIMEX WATCH everyday helps me stay on schedule so we don’t completely fall off our routine. Being on a routine makes bedtime easier for kids and gives adults a good break. I know I can semi “punch out” of work when the kids are asleep and that really makes me feel relieved, especially after a long day. I love my TIMEX WATCH for everyday because it is just my style and for a very practical price! Don’t forget to check out the personalization option to engrave a cute message for dad this Fathers Day!
