My morning routine

September 26, 2014

My alarm goes off. It goes off early so that I have time to snooze – I’m a sucker for snoozing – and depending on how cute Ras is being, it can take a while for me to drag myself out of bed.

OK, OK, I’m up! Stare at the mirror to figure out whether I can go one more day without washing my hair (thank you dry shampoo!) before washing and cleansing my face and brushing my teeth (I’ve just got my first electric toothbrush, and it’s awesome!) I shower, apply REN Day Cream, get back in my pjs and head downstairs for coffee and breakfast.

I put on the news while I eat my breakfast, and flick through emails and Instagram.

Time to get ready. Hair, make-up, get dressed, change my mind, wear something else, apply lipstick after the final piece of clothing has gone on (I’ve ruined too many items of clothing doing this wrong) then head downstairs and prepare my lunch. At the moment I’m loving soup – I bring a carton to work and it lasts me a couple of days, or I pack a salad or maybe some dinner leftovers.

08:30 (ish)
Once I’m ready I sit on the sofa with Ras and we wait for Trout to finish getting ready, before walking to work together (me and Trout, Ras stays at home to look after the flat) –  another perk of working 30 seconds away from each other ;) I like getting to work early so that I don’t have to rush around – I prefer to ease myself into the day.

Arrive at work, pop my lunch in the fridge and make a big cafetière of coffee for me and a colleague.

The days begins. Hello, emails.


How does your morning routine compare?
Do you commute by train or bus, or do you walk to work?

    The first picture looks so peaceful and calming. I love checking my emails and social media early in the morning with a mug of tea.

      It gets me ready for the day when I know what I need to do even before it really begins!

    ^ what Jemma said! I always love a bit of blog reading over breakfast too :) and if I’m going to work out I’ll try and do it in the morning otherwise it just won’t happen…

      I tend to have to stick to workouts after work – but if I go to the gym at the weekend it has to be first thing!

    Great idea for a post. And, I’m glad I’m not the only one who showers then gets back into pyjamas!
