A miraculous transformation takes place in my flat most mornings. See what I mean?
It’s a triumph of modern beauty that I look human before 10am if I’m perfectly honest. This is how that particular piece of magic happens, an everyday makeup tutorial for the lazy girl if you will.
Alarm goes off. Snooze.
Alarm 2 goes off. Snooze.
Alarm 3 goes off. Stretch. Stick big toe outside the duvet. Consider options. Realise I still need to get paid. Get up.

Now do something, anything really, with your hair.
Congratulations, you may leave the house. Or make more coffee. Your call.
