How to get office ready in 10 minutes
Late for work? No problem, here are 10 tips to help you get there faster
So you missed your alarm? You haven’t shaved? You don’t know what to wear? Here are ten tips to help you get office ready in no time. 1. Emergency outfits: Set aside two “last-minute” outfits for when you’re late. Choose classics like a crisp shirt and jeans. Ladies, dresses and jumpsuits are rescuers. 2. Eat on the go: Skipping breakfast can lower your productivity at work. Grab a banana, smoothie, or healthy sandwich and have it on the go. Tip: for a morning energy boost, keep snacks like digestive biscuits in your desk drawer. 3. Time yourself: If you’re having trouble reaching work on time, try timing yourself whilst getting ready. You’ll be surprised how fast you can be if you’re aware the clock is ticking. 4. This one is for the ladies: There isn’t a bad hair day that can’t be fixed with dry shampoo and a bun. Not a fan? Try a messy side braid. 5. Quick make-up: Three products – three minutes: Bold lipstick brightens your face and works as a blusher, tinted BB cream doubles as a foundation and moisturiser, and mascara works, well, as mascara! 6. Shower the night before: You’ll still wake up fresh if you shower before going to bed. It’s a key time-saver and one tick off the list. 7. Get ready with music: Believe it or not – music can help you move quicker. Set a goal that in three songs’ time, you’ll be out the door. Also, it’s a major mood booster. 8. There’s a spray for that: No time to iron your shirt? Not an issue. Now you can use a spray that instantly removes wrinkles. We recommend Downy’s Wrinkle Releaser. 9. Deodorant that doubles as perfume – sort of: Deodorants like Old Spice and Yardley’s English Lavender have a strong and pleasant smell that could pass as perfume, ultimately saving you time. 10. Groomed stubble: So you didn’t have time to shave this morning. Luckily for you, stubble is in style. Skip the shave and trim around the edges to mimic a “groomed” look.
