I want to maximize sleep and minimize wasted time in the morning.

Due to some changes in my life, I need to start getting up earlier in the morning. Problem is, I am a lazybones and I LOVE to sleep. In fact, I normally WAKE UP and start the day at 8 AM, and soon I will need to report to work at that time. I need to go to work looking very polished and feeling great. This means I need to start showering in the morning and eating breakfast before I go into work. This is going to mean a change in the way I deal with mornings. Please help me make this change as painless as possible.

I haven't had to get up so early in the morning to get ready since I graduated high school. Like I said above the fold, I will soon need to report for work at 8 AM. In order to feel good and be productive until lunch time, I need to make and eat breakfast, and in order to look really good and polished, it is absolutely mandatory that I shower in the morning. I want to get as much sleep as possible, and I have a very hard time going to bed earlier than 10 PM at night. I know that it will take me thirty minutes or so to shower, dry and style my hair, and apply makeup, and the commute to the office should take ~5 minutes or so. How late can I sleep and still manage to do all of these things, plus eat breakfast? I know I can lay a suitable work outfit out the night before to save time, but what all can I do the night before that will make getting ready in the morning easier and maximize my sleep time? Are there any breakfasts that can be prepared the night before that heat up easily and taste great? Any help would be appreciated.
