As a busy working mum I find it really hard to fit everything in. I work until really late so don’t get up super early and therefore don’t have loads of time to get ready in the morning. Working from home doesn’t help. All you want to do is tie your hair back and put on comfy clothes but when it comes to the school run I feel dowdy compared to the other working mums.
So here is my guide to looking glam on the quick…
Make a little time to do your hair. Home colouring is quick and easy, run the straighteners over it and you are done. I had mine dip dyed so that it can grow out and I don’t have to keep going to the hairdressers as often as with highlights.
Paint your nails. It sound silly but a great manicure makes you look and feel glam. Don’t have much time? Try the new gel nail varnishes that are around. They last longer and are as quick to apply and take off as normal nail varnish. This great one is from Asda – multi task and pick one up on your next shopping trip!
Wear heels. A smart boot with a little heel looks so much more glam than comfy uggs. I have my eyes on these…
Ankle Tan Boots / Knee High Tan Boots
Get a fab coat. Throw a fab coat over your outfit and you can hide that comfy sweatshirt on the school run! I have this great one from Joules and am on the market for a nice smart black one too.

Swish on a quick coat of lip gloss. This takes 30 seconds and I always do it in the car before I get out. It will make you look instantly better. I’ve got this great one from Asda again – great colour and texture and it helps that you can save time by picking it up with your regular shopping!
Disclosure – I was gifted the nail varnish and lip gloss for the purposes of this review.
