Am I the biggest creep ever or is the ‘Morning Routine’ something everyone obsesses over? Besides what’s in people’s bag, I’m most interested in how they start their day. With that said, I wanted to give you a little glimpse into mine (although it is ever changing).
6: 30 I’ve mentioned before that I’m trying to transform into a morning person, and I am proud to say (Chandler can vouch) that with a few adjustments, I have become much more pleasant in the AM. So I’ll set my alarm for 6:30 and let’s be real, I’ll wake up by 7:00am. I know it’s bad to snooze but I do. #SorryNotSorry
7:00-7:30 ish Stella has finished her pouncing (does anyone else’s cat wake them up walking all over?) and I’m up on my iPad or iPhone checking urgent emails and of course Instagram, Snapchat, Bloglovin’ & all that important stuff. Then I’ll stretch and try to meditate for 10 minutes.
8:00am: I typically get started in my home office at this time, scheduling social posts, checking emails & making sure my blog post for the day is out and promoted.
8:30: If I’m feeling down or out, I listen to Joyce Meyer and she lifts me back up.
8:45: I’ll hop in the shower and do one of the most important steps, which is to moisturize. I’ve recently started using Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer and I love it because you use it right out of the shower while your skin is still wet. It locks in that vital moisture and makes a huge difference in how my skin looks and feels.
8:55: After completing my skincare routine, I throw on few swipes of mascara, blush, bronzer and put on my eyebrows and call it a day. Then I get dressed.
9:00: I try to make a healthy breakfast every morning because it keeps me sane and recharged. My favorite is a whole wheat English muffin topped with peanut butter and bananas. De-lish.
9:30: After I eat, if it’s a shoot day I go right into styling – I have to make sure everything is ready to go for shoots as we typically do more than 1 a day. If it’s a stuck to my computer day, I go sit down at my desk and lock myself in. Ha!
And there you have it, a little glimpse into my morning routine. What is yours like?
