Lifestyle: My Morning Routine

Well hello there...

I have seen YouTubers, bloggers and vloggers create different variations of the 'Morning Routine' post. They are some of my favourite videos to watch, because I'm nosy like that! 

So I thought I would share with you a typical day off.
Come and be nosy!

Let's get started...
09.45am: Wake up!
I usually get out of bed just before ten on a day off, as I like to have a little lie in. 
The first thing I do every morning is make my bed.
I find that having a neat and tidy bed, makes for a clear mind, and always sets my day off right.

10.00am: Face, Teeth, Moisturise
I then pop the kettle on and head to the bathroom, to wash my face and brush my teeth.
I have been loving using The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Wash, to get rid of any dirt or grime, left over from the evening before. 
I then head back to my bedroom, and apply my moisturiser.
I'm currently using the Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream. 
I love this moisturiser. It makes my skin looker brighter, and leaves it feeling super soft.
10.15am: Give me all the food
Breakfast is definitely my favourite meal of the day. 
I always pour myself a big mug of tea, grab a litre bottle of water from the fridge, and then make myself some breakfast.
My breakfast does vary day to day. Today I had some Total Greek yoghurt, with granola and fresh pears.
 (If you would like to see what other tasty breakfasts I enjoy, check out my instagram for healthy food snaps - @clumsybaby)

10.45am: Social media addict
After I have finished my breakfast, I usually have a mug of green tea and catch up on any emails or blog posts, and have a cheeky scroll through instagram and twitter. 

11.30am: Get dressed, Face on
My standard day off ensemble at the moment, is usually a pair of skinny jeans, a comfy tee and either my favourite black ankle boots, or some flats.
I don't usually do a full face of make up when I'm off, unless I'm going somewhere special.
I just add some concealer to any blemishes, redness and to cover my dark circles. 
Then a sweep of matte powder to set my concealer, and to stop any shine. 
I then apply my current favourite everyday mascara, Benefit's Rollerlash, to my top and bottom lashes, to open my eyes up. 
Lastly, I apply my Bobbi brown lip balm, and finish with my current favourite nude lipstick, 'Bourjois Rouge Edition in 'Pretty in Nude'.

12.00pm: Out the door
I then head off to do whatever it is I am doing that day. It's usually either going out with my boyfriend for some lunch and a country walk, shopping in town, or just hanging out at home, and working my way through my to-do list.
 (Those dishes aren't going to wash themselves.... my life is full of excitement!)

  2. I like the idea of having morning and evening routines in the blogging world as well! I'm definitely a morning person, but sometimes I forget that and give into the pull of the snooze button haha x
