3 Time-Saving Beauty Hacks Every Busy Woman Needs To Know
If you are like me, mornings can be a challenge. Let’s be real, mornings are a challenge. Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those post about getting up earlier (though that can help), or how to eat breakfast in 4.5 seconds. Before I left my law job to become a full-time entrepreneur I spent most days with wet pulled back hair, barely any makeup and boring nails. I know…totally not me! It is hard to feel cute when you constantly run out of the house without getting ready. I thought working for myself would allow me the time to pull myself together. Wrong. I trade wet hair for a baseball cap and sometimes (maybe more than sometimes..) clothes that I wore yesterday.
There was a tipping point where I decided I wanted to look like I had my S*&t together at least some of the time. But, I don’t want to spend all the time in the world doing it. It became my mission to feel cute and put together, in a minimum, mom-friendly, amount of time. So I started looking for ways to simplify my beauty routine, wrangle my hair quickly and feel like I looked alive.
Now, I don’t know when it happened, but I totally missed the girl skill of doing my own hair. I literally never learned how to properly blow it out or style it and I am old, so YouTube wasn’t there to teach me all things teen beauty. But sitting here at almost 40 I have found the answer. The Revlon one step hairdryer volumizer magic unicorn hair styling tool (ok, I added the last bit but it’s true). This recommendation came by way of a facebook group. I saw women with all kinds of hair having amazing results and tracked down this bad boy myself. I have used it for over a month, I have traveled with it, I have raved about it to everyone I know. It is really that good.
One of the things I love most is having cute nails. However, I loathe the time in the chair and the upcharge for art on each nail. At just $8.99 each set the Incoco Nail Polish strips are my godsend. I actually reached out to Incoco and asked for a coupon code to share with you and they gave you 15% off!!!! So use code EmilyDBaker15 and you are set. These strips are basically nailed stickers but made out of nail polish. They come in amazing designs (and plain color if you are into that sort of thing). They come off with nail polish remover and last about 2 weeks. They go on easily and are instantly dry. (see the video below! Even I can do it.) They make doing my nails a breeze and I love them so much.If you have never tried them use the coupon and check it out, you will never go back!
Finally, I live for the Arbonne Ultra. This is an ultrasonic skin care device and is the first of its kind. It allows your skin care products to penetrate the deeper levels of your skin so that when your skin turns over you have amazing glowing healthy skin coming up. It has made a difference in my skin and wrinkles and I rave about it in the video below. If you know an Arbonne consultant please show them some love. If you don’t, or you have questions, leave a comment or e-mail me and I will get you taken care of.
