Swish: Get rid of that nasty morning breath. You don't want it smelling like the sewage problem in Tucker Hall (exaggeration). Make sure you always have a flouride mouth-wash on hand. I love the green "ACT Flouride Rinse". It will kill all of the bacteria and your classmates who sit near by will appreciate it.
Dress: While you are swishing, spend the remaining 4 minutes and 30 seconds on the most important step- actually looking cute.
- Always have a go-to dress that you can just slip on. Keep accessories simple with maybe your signature necklace or earrings. Also have a neutral shoe/boot that goes with everything.
- You now have about 2 minutes left to fix your crazy hair and cover the pillow-lines left on your face. I would recommend smoothing out your hair with your fingers and twisting it into a low chignon, adding a headband if desired.
- Then, quickly wash your face using a product like Oxy or Clearasil pore-cleansing pads. On your fingertips apply a tinted moisturizer, rubbing it in from the T-zone and moving outward. Set the look with a sheer powder. Then add some black/brown eyeliner on your water-line and two swipes of mascara.
- On your way out the door spritz yourself with your favorite scent- I love Ralph by Ralph Lauren and Pure Seduction by Victoria's Secret.
Run: Move that lil booty as fast as your can down those stairs and out the door. Then stop running. Please. There is a trade-off: A. Be on time for class, but be that kid running across campus like with their book bag bouncing awkwardly on their back, or B. Be 3 minutes late to class. I would choose the latter.
Welcome back to a new semester at William and Mary!
