Everyday Morning Routine Outfit:
Good morning from my room to yours on this fine Friday. I don’t know about y’all but after this crazy week, I had a hard time getting up this morning. I head home to Dallas today around 2pm for the weekend and I did NOT want to get up thinking about all the things I needed to pack. Josh and I are leaving for NOLA from Dallas on Monday so just trying to wrap my mind around everything I need gives me a headache lol. But, TGIF…. and while sometimes it’s hard to wake up, this year I’ve really lived for my everyday morning routine.
Mornings are my personal quiet time. Not because I read my devotional but because my roommates are typically still sleeping, no ones blowing up my phone, and it’s an hour of just peace and quiet, all to myself. I love waking up, making a fresh pot of coffee, and crawling into my bed to read, pray and do anything I want for myself. My days are crazy between school, working, and extra activities so that one hour everyday morning routine is what makes me pull myself together and get ready to take on the day.
So, here’s my TYPICAL (because we all know I sleep in until 11:30pm on weekends or wake up last minute before class every once in a while) everyday morning routine.
MY TYPICAL EVERYDAY MORNING ROUTINE
My alarm always goes off at 7:50am. On MWF I have a 9am class so my morning is a little more rushed to leave by 8:45am. But on Tues/Thurs I have class at 9:30am, giving me time to do everything in a slow manner.
Right when my alarm goes off I take 5 or so minutes to check any immediate emails, instagram notifications, and texts I missed throughout the night.
8:00: Get Up
I get my butt up at 8am always. I head straight to the bathroom to put in my contacts, wash my face, and brush my teeth.
I’m all about a heavy skincare routine at night, but in the morning I like a light and REFRESHED skin routine. This is what I use for that:
This.stuff. smells so fresh and feels really nice on your skin in the morning. I like that it’s not a scrub and easy to get off any oils or dirt from the night. I’ve been liking to add a really light oil to my skin in the morning as a moisturizer. It looks so good under makeup and lasts longer for moisture. I usually add a little eye cream as well because my under eyes are constantly dry.
8:10: Coffee Time
After my face is clean, I go to my kitchen to make a little breakfast and start my coffee pot. I usually eat two eggs or a plain cereal with bananas and soy milk. Once I pour my coffee I actually head back to my bed to relax and do my quiet time.
I only started doing a devotional about 3-4 weeks ago after asking y’all on Instagram to recommend me some in January. SO many of y’all sent me like 20 names of some and I bought a couple to start out. I’m reading Thirty Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and the Doer. y’all. I’m a huge dreamer, I have high hopes for myself, am always living in a dream world, and I run my own business. This devotional SPEAKS to me. If you’re a dreamer or a girl-boss, please please please read this. I’m only a portion into it and I can never put it down in the morning. I try to do about 15 mins of this. One day I’ll wake up earlier and do 30-45 mins everyday. One day lol.
8:30: Work Work Work
So, I always make my bed and then head to my living room for a little change of scenery by this time. Before class, I make sure my post for that day looks good and is ready to go. I always answer a few emails to start my morning, and look at what I’m posting to Instagram for the day. If I don’t have a post going up, I like to share a previous post or one from the past.
9:00 Pack My Bag
Ok laughing because I didn’t want to bring my backpack in for these photos. So if you scroll down you see me loading up my tote. HAHA I get embarrassed sometimes because I have an 8 year old Jansport backpack. I only put a notebook, a folder, my planner, and my laptop in it so I never cared to get a new one. Everything I do is on my laptop which is so nice about college, but I can’t wait to ditch that backpack in one more year. I also usually put a snack in it because a girls gotta eat…. and a water for the day.
9:10 Out The Door
Like I said earlier, if it’s MWF I’m out the door by 8:45am so my work time and breakfast time is usually cut in half and super rushed.
That’s my easy and typical everyday morning routine. How do y’all spend your mornings!? Rolling out of bed last minute or an hour to yourself?? Thanks for reading!! xo
