Today was going to be the day I started getting up earlier… spoiler alert! That, it was not. You see, I’ve been reading the “The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs” by Hal Elrod and Cameron Herold. Basically, they break down the morning routine of the most successful people in the world. Of course, this would mean waking up quite a bit earlier. I’m going to try again tomorrow. If you’re not an entrepreneur, there are actually several versions of this book so there’s definitely one out there for you. I think once I get on track with this, my life and business will improve dramatically! So, if you’d like to follow my journey with this book, read my full review of it and see how I apply these principles let me know and I’ll do another post about those topics specifically. But back to today! Today was one of those mornings where I decided that an extra 15 more minutes in bed was more valuable than the 15 minutes I could’ve spent in the shower, styling my hair, or applying my makeup to perfection. Tired me should NOT be given the power to make that choice.
Have you been in that situation before? I know it wasn’t the first time for me and it certainly won’t be the last. So luckily for both of us I’ve got this situation completely figured out! So, without further delay, here’s the list of my Top 5 Morning Rush Must Haves!
• Moisturizer with SPF
SPF is SO important. We can’t afford to skip out on this EVER! We also shouldn’t skip moisturizer either so, if you don’t have time for much at least do this!
• Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
Even if you don’t have time to do a full makeup look this is the quickest and easiest way to look alive as they say. What I mean by that is putting a little bit of this on your under-eyes will immediately erase dark circles and make you look a lot less tired.
• Redken Dry Shampoo Powder 02
This is a loose powder dry shampoo that will allow you to refresh yesterday’s style and add volume at the root without giving your hair a gritty feeling. I love that this is a clean feeling option in the dry shampoo world. Check out my products highlight real on my IG to see this product in action HERE.
• A Steamer
Nobody wants to have to go out in wrinkly clothes! If you do not own a steamer you need to click on the link above NOW and order one. Steaming is quicker than ironing and you will be so grateful to own one of these babies when you’re in a hurry! I love the Joy Mangano brand because first of all, did you see the movie about her when Jennifer Lawrence played her? Also why would you not want the option to get your favorite color? Shut up and take my money.
• A Keurig
This may be a larger item but having the ability to make your own coffee in a small portion is going to be worth the time it saves you from either A. having to make a whole pot or B. having to stop somewhere. So, if you’re a coffee drinker you NEED one of these. Plus think about the adorable coffee nook you can create in your kitchen!
I hope you don’t find yourself running late but if you do, the items on this list should be there ready to assist you. There are two honorable mentions that didn’t make it on the list though, a little bit of eyeliner and lipstick will definitely help you appear more put together! That’s what I have on in the selfie I posted up at the top. What are your morning rush must haves? Let me know in the comments.
