One of my guilty pleasures is reading or watching people's morning and nighttime routine posts. I have no idea why I find them so intriguing but there's something about getting a peek into someone else's life and seeing what they routinely do everyday! Since summer is over halfway over, I guess you could say I've gotten a routine down for weekend mornings (because let's be honest, weekend mornings are much more interesting to read about than weekdays when I wake up and get ready in 10 minutes). Here is a look at what a weekend morning looks like for me!
Wake up :: 9:00 am
It depends on my schedule and what I have going on that day, but usually I'll wake up anywhere from 8:45 to 9:30. In bed I'll check social media, take a look at my new emails, read my favorite blogs and make a mental to do list for the day.
Get Ready for the Day :: 9:30 am
Again, it really varies on whether or not I'm working that day, but most often I take my time in the mornings and brush my teeth, hair, etc. I typically shower and wash my hair at night and then rinse off again in the mornings so I feel fresh for the day. After that, I'll tidy up my room, make my bed and plan out my outfit. It doesn't always happen, but I really try to sneak my everyday workout routine in here too!
Make Breakfast :: 10:00 am
Around 10:00 am I'll make myself some breakfast and either whip up a quick smoothie or put together a yogurt parfait (greek yogurt from Trader Joe's has been my favorite lately!). While I eat I'll either catch up on things on my phone, chat with my family, watch a little tv or read a magazine.
Shoot Blog Photos :: 10:25 am
Since the light is just right in the morning, I love to shoot photos for my social media or blog when I have enough time. Whether it's an outfit or a simple smoothie picture for Instagram, I really try to take advantage of the perfect lighting when I can!
Make a To Do List :: 11:00 am
Being the typical Type A person I am, a to do list is always necessary for me, especially on the weekends when I have more time to get things done. I write down all the things I didn't accomplish during the week and then add on the other things I want to do (ie. workout, paint my nails, buy flowers for me room, etc.). I hate not crossing things off the list so this is a very helpful method!
That's about it for my mornings!

Have a great one!
