Now that the boys are sharing a room, Thunder and Lightening are sleeping in later.
I am sure this has nothing to do with those two staying up until 9PM, completely absorbed in deep conversation about their Batman sticker books. However, after three solid years of Lightening bouncing out of bed when it was still pitch black outside, I say mommy has earned some well-deserved shut-eye.
The only problem--our little snooze-fest cuts down on brush, wash, eat, dress, play and pack-a-lunch time, not to mention our new and exciting flat-out run to the bus stop. Not because we're late, mind you--just because we really, really like to run.
You know I love my Five Minute Makeup routines--but necessity breeds creativity. Thus, in a slightly frazzled grab for glossiness, I give all you on-the-go and galloping gals out there...
One Minute Makeup
STEP 1: Add a drop of moisturizer (I'm using Jurlique's anti-oxidant rich herbal remedy) to a dab of Benefit's Oxygen Wow! foundation (it's potent) and swirl in your palm with a flat makeup brush. Pat and blend across undereye circles and on red spots.
|Okay, two coats.|
STEP 2: Swipe on one coat of glossy black mascara.
STEP 3: Rub some Benefit Posietint stain on the apples of your cheeks and dot across lips.
(And if I'm feeling extraspecial, I'll throw a braid or two into slightly damp hair and twist it all up with a tortoiseshell clip).
Voila! Cute as punch and ready to beat it to the bus stop. A big shout-out for the public school system!
Remember, dear readers, how you get there is just as important as when you get there--and Speed Chic likes to be early...
|Pug, purse, pumps and panache.|
Don't worry, honey--mama will get you to school on time!
