Save time and energy with these beauty shortcuts. It can seem tough trying to look and feel good when your day is taken up with numerous chores and childcare, not to mention the paid work you may try to squeeze in as well. Shortcuts to looking fabulous, despite your fast-paced schedule, can help you feel more like an attractive woman rather than a domestic drudge.

 

The key is to start with basics.  Basic clothing, hairstyle, makeup, and fitness regimes. Get these right and they form a foundation to looking wonderful and feel on top of things.

 

Just because we are busy does not mean we should look like worn out. In the contrary, all the more we should give ourselves some time to look and feel good by taking care of ourselves.

The Basic wardrobe

Busy moms have little time to choose what to wear in the morning. They are likely to grab clothing that is closest to hand rather than carefully selecting garments and mixing and matching them with style. This is why so many attractive moms spoil their appearance by living in a tracksuit.

The way around this problem is to only have clothing that works well in combination. A selection of basic classics, plus accessories and a few special items of clothing will be all you need. Knowing that anything you reach for in the wardrobe is going to look great will save you time and boost your confidence.


Signature Flap Pocket Bootcut Jeans (Elm)

Signature Flap Pocket Bootcut Jeans (Elm)

You will need at least one pair of jeans to suit your body shape. Dark boot cut jeans suit most women and won’t show up marks left by children’s sticky fingers easily. Several pairs of classic pants in a neutral shade, several plain white tee shirts, two classic jackets, a cardigan and several sweaters can be chosen well so that they look great when you mix and match them.
