The clock shows minutes until it’s time to get out the door and suddenly date night seems like it was just a great idea… but not so likely to be realized. Your mom bun, stained tee and legs that haven’t been shaved in days feel like the great divide between day-to-day mom-life and a date night out.

Does this scenario sound familiar?

Even when the countdown is on, we’ve got a few beauty hacks (or really just our must-do steps) to have you feeling great and ready for a date in minutes… or even just a great way to feel refreshed and ready to take on a new day!

How to Get Ready for a Date in Minutes

Wash it Away.

Even when you really don’t think you have the time, you DO. Taking just a couple of quick minutes to hop in the shower does wonders… not only to help you smell great for a date, but mentally as well. The running water is truly a time to clear your head, reset and feel refreshed, and when you’ve got a clock running, a couple of minutes is really all you need.

Smooth Operator.

And while you’re taking a moment to shower, don’t forget that shave! For me, a shower and a shave are both things that make me feel like a new person… and it really doesn’t take long at all.

Don’t get stuck with a dull (or missing) razor though (I’ve been stuck in that prickly shower situation before!). To make sure you’re always prepared to make the best with your limited shower time, try out Gillette Venus’ new subscription service for customizable razors with fast and FREE delivery.

Gillette has designed razors for women for years, and now they’re meeting another need… convenience! As the most awarded #1 female shaving brand, Venus Direct now offers a simple 3-step process that lets you choose the blade type, custom, ergonomic handle and extra features with plans starting as low as $10 per month (plus it ships free and you can cancel at anytime), so you can have exactly what you need at your fingertips, every time you hop in the shower.

I’m all about finding ways to simplify and streamline, and not having to think about shaving anymore, yet still having what I need, when I need it is a great value that literally shaves time off of my schedule!

Try it out HERE and let me know what you think!

No-Stress Tresses are Your Friend.

Sure we all love a good blow-out, but if you’re counting down the minutes and you’re still in that stained tee while picking up dirty socks and dishes… skip the fuss and make it easy on yourself. A few great date-night options are a messy top-knot (own the mess and make it work FOR you), a low ponytail gives off that “no-fuss” vibe while keeping it chic by wrapping a strand of hair around the elastic. Another option is to hold your head up-side down and give a spritz of dry shampoo or massage a little baby powder into the roots, twist into a high top-knot bun and hop in the shower for a quick body-wash. When you’re dressed and ready to leave, pull out the bun for bouncy, loose waves. Or if all that is still too much of a hassle, just throw on one of your favorite hats!

Stand up tall, confident and SMILE

One of my favorite things about the concept of looking good, is that with confidence and a smile anyone can look like a million bucks. While I truly love and enjoy putting in an effort with my skincare, beauty routine and picking my outfit; I believe with my whole heart that even without those things, if you walk in a room and you radiate self love, self worth, genuine kindness, and real joy those qualities trump everything else.

So the very best tip for how to get ready for a date? SMILE and enjoy it!
