Earth Lovers: Too Much Primping

Hey Her Campus-ers!

Today, I once again took a 3-minute shower... ok fine, my shower was a couple minutes too long today, because I was super tired and lazy, and therefore I moved a bit slower than normal... however, my main 3-minute shower issue today was:

Showering before a formal event.

This weekend, I have to wear a formal dress 4 nights in a row. On Thursday night, I had the Miss Emerson Pageant, Friday night my sorority (AEPhi) had a semi-formal, tonight I went to Zeta Phi Eta's semi-formal, and tomorrow I have the Emerson Recognition & Achievement Awards. So all of those 4 nights = way too much primping. Picking out a formal dress (or shopping for one... ugh!), then figuring out which shoes to pair with it, which jewelry to wear, and putting on makeup takes way too long...

However, the only thing getting me through all this primping and dressing up this weekend is that since I'm now taking shorter showers, I can spend more time on all the other parts of getting ready - picking out a dress, jewelry, makeup, etc...

Basically, every day I find out another reason that the Three-Minute Shower Challenge is awesome!

Today's 3-minute shower song was:

If you still haven't tried taking a 3-minute shower yet, you should! It will only take 3 minutes of your time, so there's no excuse! And, as always, a 3-minute pump-up song will do the trick! And just think of how much time you'll have leftover to spend on the rest of your primping process!

Peace, Love, and Short-Showers!
