I was just scrolling through Bloglovin and stumbled upon Sally from The Makeup Directory‘s latest post. The AM/PM Routine. Her first sentence was “it has been a very long time since I’ve done a tag post…” Literally same, Sally. Tag posts are so much fun and a great way to interact with other bloggers and learn more about one another. So I thought, why not give this one a go!
What is you morning routine?
Immediately after getting out of bed, hair and makeup come first. Priorities, right?! That’s followed by getting dressed before heading downstairs for food and preparing my lunch for the day ahead. I then brush my teeth and fly out the door for work. I start pretty early so the morning routine is a speedy one to maximise my time in bed!
What’s for breakfast?
It honestly depends on the day. I’m a full English sort of girl but it’s not practical to cook up before work. When I’m in a hurry I like something super simple that’s going to keep me satisfied until lunch. Usually I’ll reach for Wheatabix or Rice Crispies.
Coffee or Tea?
Neither. I’ve never really been a fan of hot drinks, maybe a hot chocolate on Fireworks night or the occasional biscuit dunk in some tea, but that’s about it. I’m more of a juice person.
How long does it take you to get out of the door?
Again, it depends on the day. Before work, I give myself 45 minutes between getting out of bed and jumping in my car to leave. On the weekends, it all happens much, much slower.
What is your go-to makeup on a fuss-free morning?
Always something natural and glowy. I love the L’Oreal True Match foundation because it blends super easy (I could put it on with my eyes closed) and is a good mix between matte and dewy. It highlights in all the right places. Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blush is a must, it goes on so easy and adds a bit of colour to my complexion. Then just a quick cat eye, a swipe of the Shimmering Skin Perfector by Becca and some mascara. I’ve been loving the Maybelline Falsies Mascara lately.
What is your evening beauty routine?
I’m super lazy in the evenings, although I really wish I wasn’t. I get straight into bed after work and have to drag myself out again at bedtime to take my makeup off. On a good day, I’ll do the who shebang (which you can read about here) but when I’m really exhausted a face wipe and some moisturiser is about all I can muster.
Snack time! What’s in the bowl?
Bowl? No way. If I’m going to snack, chances are it’s nothing you’d put in a bowl. Crisps are my all time go to, guilty pleasure. Cool Original Dorito’s and some Sour Cream and Chive dip is something I love to snack on but rarely have stocked in the cupboards.
How do you wind down and prep for bed?
Watching YouTube video’s is my ideal ‘me-time’ chill out sesh, that and having a bath. When I can work out a system where both of those things can happen simultaneously, I’ll know I’ve made it in life. Other than that, there isn’t much of a pre-bedtime routine.
Cosy up! What are you wearing to sleep?
Most likely something pulled from Georges set of drawers. There’s something so much snugglier about men’s trackie’s than there is women’s.
What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?
Putting my brace in. I’d be so disapointed in myself if I stopped wearing my brace and my teeth returned to their awkward, crooked state.
Have you done this tag yet? If so leave a link to it in the comments because I’d like to read it. If you haven’t, when you do let me know!
