It takes a lot of work to put together a whole look, especially for a fashion girl who cares about the nitty-gritty of her daily outfit. Here, the 10 phases we go through every morning:
1. Hitting the snooze button.
Is that my alarm ringing already? The sun isn’t even up yet! If the sun isn’t even up yet, I definitely deserve to hit snooze.
2. Hitting the snooze button again.
Just five more minutes, and then I’ll get up. I promise!
3. Realizing what time it is.
Oh shoot!!! I am so gonna be late!
4. Self-check at the mirror.
Wait, did my pores look this huge when I slept last night? This is even more frightening than my nightmare. Okay, okay, maybe I shouldn’t panic. Perhaps a shower can fix me.
5. Random shower thoughts.
That cute guy I met last night hasn’t texted me yet. Maybe I should check if he sent me a friend request on Facebook instead. I’ll totally stalk his Instagram later! Speaking of which, I need to try this new restaurant that serves IG-worthy food.
6. Self-check at the mirror, part two!
Okay, so a shower wasn’t able to fix me. Maybe I need a little makeup? Or fine, more than a little. Should I go for soft smokey eyes? Or a dark lip? That's too much. I think I'll just do a no-makeup makeup look today.
7. A loooong hair sesh.
Time to tame this thing called my hair. Sniffs. Oh, shucks! Is that my hair burning??
8. Rummaging through the closet.
Now, what should I wear today? Hmm. Nope, not this! Ugh, I’ve worn this a dozen times already. Darn it, I don’t have enough clothes anymore. I need to go shopping!
9. Finally finding the one.
Wow, I actually look good in this. Now, what pair of shoes should I wear it with?
10. All set and ready to go!
