I still haven't changed out of my PJs today.. or brushed my hair.. I need a hair cut desperately since I haven't had it cut in over 2 years. I wear only dresses/skirts (pants are uncomfortable to me as well and honestly I hate being stared at and unfortunately pants=men staring) but the ones i wear most have seen better days. Also they are WAY to big since I either made them or bought them when I was pregnant. Another problem I have is I lack the motivation to look nice, most days only my kids see me so why bother? I guess I could get looking nice on the off chance DH gets to call.
As for make up- mineral makeup and some cosmetic brushes. When I do it I use powder (no liquid foundation, it makes me feel dirty for some reason), eye shadow, mascuara and blush.. one of these days Ill buy some lipstick as well. It takes me less than 5 minutes. I do have a lot of experience with makeup though since I spent a good potion of my childhood/teen years in dance. Nothing like having 5 minutes to totally change costumes and redo your make up to get you quick with it! Brushes are the key though, those little wand things that come with the makeup take forever and don't look nearly as good.
Hair, if you have long hair a French braid always looks nice and is really quick to do. Its what I do when I manage to motivate myself to do it. Another thing you can do is put it in a pony tail and braid the ponytail. If you really want to be "put together" take that braid and pin it up and it looks great. Also, try to make sure if you have long hair to braid it before bed so it doesn't knot. That way if you run out of time in the morning at least it doesn't look like a giant knot (yea Ive gone out like that ). My hair is to long now but I use to do a french braid down each side then loop them together in the back. Any of these hair styles take between 1-5 minutes to do and they stay well. My hair is fine, thick and down to my waist and it stays up for the most part of the day. For shorter (like upper back or shoulder length) hair keep the big clips laying around and you can do a french twist in under a minute and clip it up. Again easy and quick.
If anything try to work out if even for 10 minutes a day. I know its hard! I have three (4, 2 and 5 months) and a husband whos overseas so I have to wake up extremely early. BUT it really does give you a boost throughout the day.
Have to go wangle my middle one into bed, she has decided it would be a good day to pull an all nighter and Im tired.
