For those who are nosy and want to know what I do in the morning I thought I would do a post of things that I do (or at least try to do) every morning! I haven’t put things like brushing my teeth because it’s something I do without thinking. (ps. I promise the plant isn’t dead, despite my mums allegations that it is.)
Apply lip balm. Definitely a must for someone that gets dry lips throughout the day. During the day I usually reach for my Carmex but at the start of the day I want something that will make my lips mega moisturized; the Nuxe Reve de miel is perfect for this! If I’m wearing a lipstick I will also probably spend about 10 minutes deciding which one and then my lips are ready for the day.
Try not to check social media until I’ve been up and doing things for 30 minutes. I read a while ago that you shouldn’t check your phone when you first wake up or just before you go to bed. I started doing this around a month ago and I find it does actually increase my mood and productivity (basically meaning I don’t get distracted by someones Snapchat story whilst I’m applying mascara) and I’ve stopped always wanting to immediately touch my phone the minute I wake up. Not only that but I feel I have less of a need to keep scrolling though my Instagram/Pinterest feed mindlessly because I am a queen at procrastination.
Spray on perfume. This is the one I always seem to forget (although I am getting better… slightly) which is kind of annoying as I feel there is definitely something missing when I don’t wear perfume. Luckily though, if I am running late and forget to spritz then I usually have a perfume sample in my bag: trust me, having a perfume sample in your bag is a lifesaver.
Skincare routine. You all probably have a skincare routine of some sort – this is probably the first thing I actually do in the morning and then I leave my skin to just breathe a bit before I start doing my makeup; again I sometimes don’t do my full routine if I’m running late. Comment down below if you want me to do a post on my morning/evening skincare routine!
Listen to music whilst getting ready. I actually love listening to music in the morning to get me pumped for the rest of the day. I’ve linked a few of my favourite tracks I like to listen to whilst getting ready as they really help to raise my mood and I love discovering new music to listen to, I would also love any recommendations if you have any; I need some to tide me through revision breaks.
What’s one thing you have to do every morning? I hope you have a great week 🙂
