We’ve all been there. Your alarm decides to have a mind of it’s own and not go off to wake you up. Or, you meant to hit snooze and hit dismiss instead. Either way, it means you wake up late.

It happens. You open your eyes, realize you’re late and jump out of bed scrambling get ready for the day and (hopefully) make it to the office on time. Whether you’re a morning person or not, this puts anyone into a bit of a frenzy.

So, what can you do to pull yourself together and look presentable when there is basically no longer any time left for your morning routine?


Spray that dry shampoo in your hair and take advantage of your go-to hair do that is effortless and takes minimal time.

Wash your face with cold water. This will help wake up you and your skin. Don’t forget the moisturizer to brighten and replenish your skin.

Dab concealer around your eyes to give them a brighter look.

Brush some powder on your face and blush on your cheeks. And, finish with a quick swipe of mascara and lip gloss. (I keep these essentials in my purse for days like this. It makes it easier for a quick touch up throughout the day or after work too.)

I’m sure you all have a few go-to outfits as well. (If you don’t, figure out what they are.) Grab one of those. Throw it on and you’re ready to go. (You just have to make sure that you are ahead of laundry day.)
