7 Tips To Get Out The Door Faster In The Mornings

Do you ever feel rushed and frustrated in the mornings trying to get out the door? Maybe you think to yourself… “if only I would have prepared last night!” I know I have a better day when my mornings are smooth, and I leave the house with everything I need for the day. However, between kids and appointments to owning a business and meetings, my days were just too busy to even think about the next one. However, lately, I’ve been putting forth more effort to be prepared ahead of time, so leaving the house the following day is a breeze.
Below I’m sharing seven tips that have truly helped me get out the door faster in the mornings!
While you’re feeling inspired to be productive and organized, check out my recent post: HOME ORGANIZATION.

1. Have elevated basics you can mix and match quickly in your closet

I still get stressed about what to wear at a moment’s notice as a fashion blogger. I’ve learned over the years that choosing neutrals that mix and match or a monochrome look is an easy outfit option.
I use these formulas on rotation:
Out the door quickly- Leggings, sweater, boots
Lunch with friends- straight leg jeans t-shirt, plaid blazer, sneakers
Date night – having an LBD ready to go is a must.
Casual dinner out – Off the shoulder top, wide-leg pants, and sandals

2. Keep Your Makeup Simple

I am a makeup lover through and through—all the way from eyeliner to highlighter. However, keeping it simple is the only option when you’re in a hurry.
– My favorite foundation for great coverage is Ilia skincare
– I love a cream blush you can swipe and blend with your finger
-Mascara always!
-Pro tip: line your inside upper waterline with a waterproof liner; it’s worth the time.
-lip oil to make it shine

3. Use multi-tasking products

When you only have 10 minutes to get yourself out the door, reaching for one item that will do several things is a big timesaver. Multi-tasking beauty products are everywhere now! Lip/cheek tints, foundations with skincare, and SPF benefits. Hair texturizer that doubles up as a dry shampoo and so many more. Utilize them; they all help drastically.

4. Use the right hair tools

Thank goodness for today’s hair tools, am I right?! Invest in an iron that heats up in under 60 sec. When I’m in a time crunch, I usually focus on the front part of my hair by wrapping those pieces around a curling wand and then run my fingers through them. Adding texture spray takes no time but still looks good. Also, having a quality blow dryer is essential and cuts drying time in half without damaging your hair.

5. Prepare the night before

Preparing the night before is a biggie, and though it doesn’t always happen, if you can prepare what you need the night before, you will be ahead of the game! If you do some simple things like laying out your clothes and shoes, having your handbag ready to go, and placing your keys where they need to be, it’s helpful when you are in a rush.

6. Spruce up your hair

Sometimes, all you need to do to your 2-3 day old styled hair, is add a little bit of heat from the blow dryer, texture spay, and the right hair oil. One of my favorite ways to style my hair is with loose beach curls. I use my tapered barrel curling iron. This iron gives you chic loose curls in no time. You can watch a short video tutorial of how I curl my hair here.

7. Put your hair into a low bun

Were you having a bad hair day, toss it back into an easy low bun. You can see how I do this here – it’s so quick and perfect for casual, busy days!

7 Tips For Self-Care In MidLife

7 Tips For Self-Care In MidLife 2560 1707 Tammy Caciola

A regular nightly routine with Kindra | Her Fashioned Life

7 Tips For Self-Care in MidLife

Between aging, menopause, and a crazy busy schedule, I’ve learned so much about my body over the past several years. One of the most essential things in life is my health and wellness. Self-care is the key to success, and for me, that means achieving more balance in my life and taking time out of my day to do things that relax my mind and body.

The best part of my every day is my nighttime routine. I truly see the positive benefits of engaging in a before-bed routine that helps calm my mental headspace before winding down to sleep. Below I’m sharing my regular nightly routine that has helped improve my quality of sleep tremendously in hopes that it helps you as well. I encourage you to prioritize self-care to reap the benefits in your everyday life!

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been using various KINDRA products and have been so impressed with the difference each of them has made in my menopause journey. From a better overall mood and sleep cycle to decreased hot flashes and increased mental clarity, these products have been invaluable to ease menopause symptoms. I have a discount code for you, TAMMY20, if you want to try KINDRA products for yourself!

regular nightly routine

1. Taking time for yourself.

I don’t know about you, but nothing calms my mind more than a soothing bath before bed. There’s something about closing the door to our daily lives for some peace and quiet and slipping into a peaceful tub of warm water. Trust me; it’s a mental relaxation as well as a body.

2. Dry Brushing

There are many benefits to dry-brushing; if you haven’t started, I highly recommend starting. Before getting into the bath, I use a dry brush to help cellulite and crepe skin. When using this exfoliation method, the bath soaks you’re using will absorb into the skin better.

3. Using a bath soak

Speaking of bath soak – I use the Soothe bath soak by Kindra that is ultra-nourishing and soft on my skin. This soak is unlike any other and specifically formulated to consider the tender skin of women experiencing vaginal discomfort or shifting vaginal pH during midlife.

I add this into my bath before going to sleep since it has sleep-supporting chamomile to help calm the skin and mind. It also contains omega-rich, restorative oat kernel extract for skin healing support and hydration!

4. Scented candles

I also add scented candles for aromatherapy and relaxing crystals to my tub. I’m a big believer in the power of crystal therapy which I will detail a little bit more below.

5. Crystal Bath Therapy

I have loved learning about the benefits of crystal bath therapy. Bathing with crystals is almost like conducting your own spa treatment! Not only does it relax the body physically, but it also soothes the mind and the soul, encouraging an even deeper relaxation.

Bathing with crystals is something I’ve thoroughly enjoyed because it is such a powerful way to absorb the energy of natural stones. Combining three great conductors – water, body, and crystals – will supercharge your overall wellbeing.

The most powerful sleep-enhancing crystals are:

  • Fluorite
  • Green Calcite
  • Rose Quartz

6. Just add flowers

Adding fresh flowers to my bath tray creates an even more pleasant surrounding and aesthetic. Flowers always make me happy! I always try to pick some up when I’m grocery shopping.

7. Detox Water

For me, I love a glass of wine to celebrate or on a date night, but I tend to sleep better when I replace the wine at home with a refreshing drink that also has detox benefits. One of my favorite (and easy) beverages instead of wine is a detox lemon water that does the trick every time!

Lemon water is not only good in the morning and throughout the day, but it also detoxes the liver and provides a great night’s rest. The only ingredients I add to my water are lemon and a little bit of mint, and that’s all it needs! Add an editable daisy if you would like.

Love the dish shelf for the sink! It is also available in black. Glass containers or the pantry look so luxe, especially when you add these labels!

I function so much better with a clean organized closet! A clean closet is also linked to your self-confidence! I’ve used these material-covered boxed for years. I love how you can see through the front and stack them! Velvet hangers are a gamechanger for your closet! You will be surprised how much more fits and everything will look cohesive by using the same hangers!

The bathroom can quickly become an untidy mess with all of the beauty products! I love this organizer for my hairdryer and brushes and these make-up drawer clear organizers are the best!

Lastly, the garage… I’m loving this container on wheels for the multiple sports balls! These open bins are perfect for stacking and tossing items into.
