My realistic spring morning routine

After roughly 3 days of sunshine  (of which I worked all 3), I’m declaring it officially Spring / Summer. I have quite a busy schedule through the nicer months with work so I tend to keep my morning routine a little bit shorter as I usually get about an hour before I run out the door whilst leaving my keys and anything else important inside the flat. I thought I’d share with you my realistic morning routine which involves a hella lot of rushing.

10:30 am
I usually wake up around half ten, one thing you may have worked out by now is that I’m absolutely not a morning person, I stay awake quite late catching up with my blog and bits and bobs that I haven’t had chance to get done throughout the week so a 7am start is like a horror movie to me. Usually, I’ll lie on my phone (hella unproductive) for about 10-20 minutes before even moving out of bed.

My shifts usually start around 12 so this is the point where I look at the time and realise I need to get my arse out of bed if I want to turn up even remotely on time. At this point, my boyfriends reminding me that I have work in an hour and I haven’t really moved from my double chin scrolling through Instagram I’ve grabbed myself a cup of tea (if I don’t get this I’m basically a Zombie) and I’ve sat down at my dresser to start my skincare routine; Cleanser, Toner, Moisturiser and I move on to my makeup.

I start actually waking up a bit around now and start to get my arse in gear, I’m starting to rush and slap on my makeup real quick and end up looking a little bit like a 5-year-old who’s followed a smokey eye tutorial on YouTube. By this time it’s like half 11 and I’m not even dressed (Good job Charlie).

I’ve decided to actually get dressed considering I need to leave in 15 minutes. My standard outfit is usually just a pair of ripped jeans, a T-shirt, denim jacket and my Nikes’. It’s now quarter too and I’ve brushed my teeth ready to leave, I’ve grabbed my bag, plugged in my headphones and ran out the door for work!.

how does your morning routine usually plan out?.

  1. It's always good to have a routine and be busy. Oh man, I am jealous you get to wake up at 10! Haha, I can relate to you about lounging around with your phone in the am's. Love that you have a whole beauty routine set aside. That's so important! Nancy ♥


  2. I have to get up slightly earlier for my job but if I sometimes wake up before my alarm I’ll also just sit and scroll through my phone for a while! Wish I was a morning person X


  3. Love how real this is!! My morning routine starts pretty early- 6:00 am usually- for school, but it's honestly not that bad because I always feel like I've gotten so much work done by the time the afternoon rolls around. Awesome post!!


  4. You sound a lot like me. I get up about 40 minutes before I need to head out the door. But, hey, as long as it works for us, right! Now on my days off, I sleep in late.


  5. Definitely, I'dd never be ready for work in time if I didn't have a routine, I wish I woke up earlier but I have a lot of late nights so I tend to over sleep, I tend to sometimes over-do it on the Instagram scrolling and then I end up with half a face of makeup by 11:30 running out the door haha.Charlie xx


  6. Personally, I do like to wake up earlier but it isn't practical for me because I'm usually quite busy and I'm awake quite late so I need the extra sleep haha, my body clock has just shifted to like 1-2am-10am rather than 10pm-7am which I'd much rather prefer haha.Charlie xx
