The other day I woke up feeling like a fish swimming upstream. It all began with a bad night of sleep (thanks to my teensy bun getting the hiccups) that started a domino effect of not so great inconveniences—a funky hair situation was the cherry on top.

Which is why I’m sharing these ten necessities to truck through the day when all you want to do is hit the snooze button. A few beauty tricks, a casual look and a hat to cover untamed hair.
