I Woke Up Like This…

You know when you watch movies you will see beautiful women getting out of bed looking like a million and a half bucks?

They wear expensive silk night pants and shirt. Sometimes they wear gorgeous, white satin night dresses. They have a flawless face, perfect hair, and obviously no morning breath by the way they kiss their husbands. But, in real life when you hop out of bed, you look nothing like that. Your hair is looking like a rats’ nest, your face looks like you got lost in a time warp, the clothes you wore to bed are most likely a pair of thongs and a oversized T-shirt (if you didn’t get plastered drunk the night before, otherwise you could possibly be naked), and don’t even get me started on the morning breath part, eww! So, how do you wake up like a beautiful movie star? I have a couple of tips for you that won’t break the bank! 💵💳

1. The silk night pants and shirt, or the satin gowns they wear, go for hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars. Just to sleep in!!! Last I checked, I’m not going to the red carpet in my bedroom. If you want the satin/silk movie star look, just check out http://www.amazon.com or http://www.victoriassecret.com. It cuts the price in half and you still look like a million bucks, just without the price tag. I wear my Calvin Klein t-shirts and sweaters I get from http://www.urbanoutfitters.com. But, I don’t look like a movie star when I roll out of bed, I look like a 70’s hippie, but that’s irrelevant though.
2. Let’s be real, no one is going to wake up with an absolute flawless face everyday (Unless you’re just blessed with flawless skin. Then in that case, congratulations, you won the genetic lottery). I get pimples from time to time, but every night I wash my face with Roden+Fields Microdermabrasion Paste. I swear by that paste! It isn’t the cheapest in the world, but hey, it works. Check out, http://jwilson09.myrandf.biz for more information on the Microdermabrasion Paste.
3. So, yeah, the hair is a different story. Depends on what kind of hair you have. While your hair is damp, you can throw in a bit of volume spray before you blow dry your hair. Use a big round brush while you are blow drying and make it look bouncy and pretty. The next morning all you will have to do is straighten and go. I honestly LOVE Suave Professional Volume Blow Dry Spray to blow dry my hair with. It is a feather light formula that smells amazing and won’t break the bank. Find it at http://www.target.com. When I want my hair to look naturally wavy, I braid my hair at night and spray it with a good texturizing spray in the morning. Beautiful, kinky curls all day long.
4. I’m not even going to sit here and tell you morning breath won’t happen. In the real world, it happens every morning. I use my mouthwash religiously and brush my teeth morning, noon, and night and my breath still stinks in the morning, but whatever. All I can tell you is brush your tongue, floss A LOT, gargle mouthwash, BRUSH THREE TIMES A DAY, and it wouldn’t hurt at all to use antimicrobial toothpaste and mouthwashes.

Trust me when I say you are not alone in this world looking crazy waking up in the mornings. But, the tips I gave you may help you look a little bit better.
