“It is good to love many things, for therein lies true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
Hey Sweetie pies, I wanted to share what my morning routine consists of – ideally. Of course there are some days where things may not go according to plan because well that’s life. But on a good morning, this is what I usually do.
7:30 am – My first alarm is going off which I usually hit snooze for or just magically don’t hear. Snoozing is a bad habit that I am trying really to break.
7:45 am – My second alarm is going off and I definitely wake up and check out my First5 app and read my devotion for the day. Honestly I am usually still a little groggy so I always read it again later on in the day when I am fully awake. However I am working on giving God my first moments of my day to Him, sooo yeah. (Working progress here…)
8:00 am – I am making a mad dash to the bathroom. I usually drink a bottle of water before bed so needless to say, I have to GO!
8:05 am – I wash my face which consists of warm water, my cream cleanser and toner. I then moisturize my face with my Magical Moringa moisturizer from Lush. (I mentioned this in my April Favorites so feel free to check it out there!) I also brush my teeth during this time. Since my boyfriend and I have to share a bathroom, it is much easier to just do everything I need to at the sink at that time.
8:20 am – I usually go give my boyfriend a kiss who is normally up by this time getting ready as well. (I hate having morning breath and kissing him so normally its just a kiss on the cheek. We can pucker up after we have both gotten rid of dragon breath, haha!)
8:25 am – I usually take this time to do my makeup. If you all want to see my normal beauty routine, just leave me a comment below and I will get to work on that!
8:55 am – Normally my makeup is what takes the longest because I am also checking out Instagram and jamming out to music while I get ready. (My boyfriend David ALWAYS puts on some tunes while we are getting ready!) But by this time I am throwing on what I picked out to wear. (I usually put out my clothes the night before or on Sunday night on a good week, lolz)
9:05 am – I am adding my last minute touches to my outfit such as jewelry or hair accessories. Sometimes I have to untwist my hair and fluff it out. (Naturalistas – y’all know what I am talking about.) I will also throw on a little moisturizer in my hair.
9:20 am – My boyfriend usually makes breakfast and my coffee (I know he’s a keeper right?!) If I am running around like crazy (which is 99.7% of the time) then he will fix my coffee/breakfast to go. (He normally is dressed before I finish my makeup. So once he’s dressed he then goes downstairs to fix breakfast at that time. He’s so low maintenance. I often tell him that I am not blessed to look as naturally beautiful as him, I take a little more work haha!)
9:25 am – We are heading out the door and ready to take on the world. (Figuratively speaking of course, haha!)
