My Morning Routine

Wednesday, 2 September 2015
I've been really enjoying watching everyone's morning routines, so I thought I'd do mine. So this is one of the posts where I pretend to sleep and wake up!




Fake sleeping is hard because usually I'm starfished in the bed and the covers and all over!


I wake up on college days around 6:30 am because it gives me time to relax in bed for an hour and pretend like I've has a sleep in. I have to wake up an hour early because otherwise I cant get out of bed, I need the time to pull round and be lazy for a while. I sleep with Totoro and Geoffrey the 
Alpaca. They are so cute and I kind of use them as pillows. 




Then I have my breakfast and a coffee. My go to breakfast is a red onion bagel with Philadelphia, lettuce, cheese and tomato but on school mornings I'd probably have a rushed slice of toast. I find having a bigger breakfast is great though because it really sets you up for the day and then you dont get half way through the morning and feel hungry.  I always have a cappuccino on the morning with sugar on top of the froth. It's so nice because the sugar goes hard and I like to eat it but it's probably not the most healthy thing to do. 
I always check my social media in the morning, especially Instagram. Here I was just look at at Tijans Instagram, I love hers because her photography is stunning!! I also love ArcadeFores Instagram because she has really cool city pictures with nice colours! 


Then at about 7:15 I jump in the shower and I'm normally rushed so I dont have time to do much. I just wash my body, face and teeth and then I'm out. If you have sensitive skin I'd really recommend these products because they are great and never break out my dry patches! They don't have alcohol in so if you're allergic to that, like me, these products are perfect. 


Then I do my makeup for the day and I went for my usual products but added in a bit of eye shadow. This is just a mini pallet from Avon and I do love it. The shadows are so pigmented, I just used the lightest one to brighten my inner corner and make me appear more awake. I have the cotton buds at bay all the time because I find the Lash Sensational mascara can get a little messy, it works well but doesn't dry fast so I always need these around!




Then I just pick out my outfit for the day. This can either go really well or make me very late! I have to leave the house at 8 am if I'm walking or 8:30 if I get the car, so it all depends on the outfit if I walk or car. Today it was really wet and autumnal so it was easier! I just put together my hounds tooth skirt, black jumper, scarf, rain coat and bobble hat. I love adding a scarf to the look because it just adds a pop of colour and the clashing of the patterns is subtle but fun to do. I love this coat because it's so easy all year round but it's practical so I dont have to worry about rain and getting my outfit wet. It's save me on days when it's had a surprise rainfall and everyone else is sitting in college soaking. 

Hope you enjoyed this post, here are two of my favourite morning routines:

  2. OMG I WANT YOUR TOTORO! You have to tell me where you got that from... honestly such a sucker for soft toys (even though I am way past my soft toy loving phase)! Your outfit is super cute ^__^ I never could wear whatever I wanted during school, so it was easy as 1 2 3 putting on my school uniform haha! also I was never into makeup so that meant that I could sleep for ages! Whee!
