Perfect world?  That each and every day is planned out, on a pretty little schedule that makes my phone ding an hour before something is getting ready to happen.

Put “real life,” in to the mix, and a husband that is super crazy busy, running his own business… and you have, MY life.

No Shower, 10 Min Beauty Routine and Out the Door!

The other day, my hubby calls and says,

“Hey, what do you think about meeting Mr. X this afternoon?”

“Sure! Sounds great.”

“Ok babe, on my way, see you in 10 minutes.”

WHAAAAAAT!!!?  I had no idea that he meant like, RIGHT now! I hadn’t even showered yet. This left me scramblin’.

Let me build the scene for you…

I was down in my basement, working in my home office, {ahem, ok maybe playing on Pinterest a little bit}, when he called me with that idea.

I ran upstairs to my bedroom and thought for a split second,

How am I going to look presentable in 10 minutes?

Here’s my 10 minute beauty routine that I came up with, and I realized… it CAN be done, and you can totally do it too:

The "No-Shower," 10 Minute Beauty Routine, and Out the Door!

Jeans:  Banana Republic

Top: Gap

Gold Elephant Bracelet: Charming Charlie

Steps for a “Last Minute,” 10-Minute Beauty Routine:

 Spot Clean:

— Grab a rag, and wipe down the areas that need wipin’ down. Know what I’m sayin’?

 Change your clothes:

— Throw on your favorite, versatile jeans, {Mine are from Banana Republic} and a simple top, {Mine is from Gap}like a fitted tee. {No worries… you can dress this up quickly gals.}


— Heat up your favorite hair styling tool. Then, if you have oily hair like I do, grab that dry shampoo. Spray it on, and brush it through.

— Grab that styling tool, and get to stylin’. I managed to quickly curl in some beach waves in just a few minutes. I like choosing to do the beach waves, because I like the “loose,” look, so I don’t have to leave the curling wand in, long at all.

— No time to wash your face, just time to touch up the makeup you already had, {unless you were a good girl, unlike myself, and washed your face the night before.}  Touch up with your MAC highlighting pen {for the dark circles under the eyes}, eye liner, mascara, blush and bronzer.


— Grab some jewelry nearby, and accessorize yourself… adding some, “pop,” to your look.

In the car…just like that. You look presentable in 10 minutes.

{I had to kiss my little guy before I headed out though, or my day would just not be complete. No worries, I didn’t leave him home alone. My friend Brandy was watching them that day.}  🙂

Now that I know it can be done… I hope procrastination isn’t in my future, knowing I can slack a little on my beauty routine. 😉

What would your 10-min beauty routine look like? Close to mine?

    I love cleansing wipes for this very reason. Where did you get your necklace?

      Me too!!!! 🙂 Oh shoot, you know what… I grabbed that necklace YEARS ago. I’m sure at a store in the mall. But I’m thinking like 10 years ago. No lie. Lol! I’m sorry! I wish I could tell you where to grab one, at least similar! I’ll keep my eye out for one, and let you know if I come across one! 🙂
