Saving Time in the Morning Rush!

Hey there, hoe many of you face crazy mornings? Getting kids ready? Getting chores done and practically sprinting out of the house to catch your train / bus / taxi or beat the rush hour traffic? And in this madness, how often do you skip your grooming? I say grooming here and not makeup because makeup can be skipped but not grooming... there are times I have left without as much as brushing my hair. But then, I realised that there are time saving devices that can be fit into the crazy routines.... here are some that I try:
  1. Apply a bit of coconut or olive oil on your face while you do your chores. Let it abosrb well before your bath. Your skin will feel much smoother and softer after the bath
  2. Keep a small pot of gram flour / besan in your bathroom and use it instead of a face wash. This one is courtsey Ik from Makeup Monologues
  3. Get an easy to maintain hairstyle. Be it messy layers or permanent straightening. Something that is easy to style on the run
  4. Keep your skin care and makeup stash well organised. Trust me, you do not want to spend time looking for your moisturiser, perfume or hair serum when you have those five minutes to get ready
So, what are your time saving tips???


  1. When I looked at your sidebar, I had to read this post cause I'm always pressed for time and I'm never late for anything, hence, in between that, I skip much. Then I see you mentioned me!:D:D OMG! Thanks so much. :* You totally made my day!:D

  2. hee hee.... your post was a great idea. I now keep stuff in the bathroom. Not honey, but other things that i can quickly use in the morning... :) hugs!

  3. :D hehe thats supernice, thank you!:* Thats the only thing that I do.. I am the least organized person I know, but I find my stuff in my mess!:P
