Hello

Thank you for dropping by my space!

I count myself a lifestyle blogger however, many of my posts cover deeper subjects including my battles with food, my struggles with the past and body image. I try to be as authentic as possible and I don’t sugar coat how I see things.

Good Morning!

How are you?

This morning, I woke up and thought, Hey! Why not share my morning with you!!

My Morning Routine

I usually wake up between 8 and 9, though I am working on getting up with Kevin and that's closer to 6:30...gah! And first thing, like most social media people, you start with a scroll through instagram, twitter, snapchat, facebook. I catch up on everyone's posts, see what's happening in my feed and try to chill out for a moment before braving the carpet. If your paying attention to the photos, you'll notice I am not one of those girls with white sheets, which is something I notice in all morning routine posts and videos I see! I have a white duvet and I love it, but my pillow cases and fitted sheet are all black!! It's a pain keeping my duvet white due to my hair! But I can't even image trying to maintain the rest! I usually go to bed with wet hair and that's when you get the worst transfer! You may also have noted that I said fitted sheet and not sheets! I hate flat sheets, don't use them, can't stand them. So that duvet gets washed weekly! Tell me I'm not the only one?!?!

My Morning Routine

From bed it's to the bathroom, where after a pee I wash my hands, pull my hair in a pony, strip down and hop on the scale. From the photo as you can probably tell, I weigh my self in the nude. I want the most accurate weight as possible and that's not done wearing anything or holding a camera! On the right is my sleeping bra and the left is my pajamas all headed for the wash. I only have one set, so washing happens frequently. The problem with big boobs is finding comfy things to sleep in! And yes, I weigh myself everyday. Maybe I'll write a post about that. Maybe I won't. Either way ignore that swollen foot, I do everyday unless I'm at the Chiropractor and then she'll make it go away! Also my scale is reflective so that was interesting to edit!

Then it's time to get dressed, make the bed, fluff the pillows, and head back to the bathroom. A part of me feels that it's super strange that I don't leave my bedroom until all these things are done, but it's routine and it works! This bathroom run is for my meds and vitamins, as well as finish whatever water is left in my water bottle and brush my teeth. I find that if I don't take the meds here, I don't remember. I also really like that because this is the master on-suite, no one sees them but me... and well now the internet... but I love you guys, so it's okay, right? :) Does anyone else brush their teeth before eating?? I don't know, now that I "work" from home I brush my teeth two or three or more times a day.

Now it's time for food! Since eating healthy and becoming aware of what I'm putting in my body I usually wake up starving. So breakfast has been pretty key. On the other hand, you've seen me write about food a lot. So I'm not going to write about it now, this link shows you what I usually eat.

And this is where my early morning kind ends. Because it's at a divide, if I'm going out I'll do my hair and makeup. If I'm staying in I'll work until I'm bored and then do my hair and makeup or watch YouTube. I'll leave you with a couple happy shots of my face, experimenting with a makeup tutorial I tried to mimic, from Shonagh Scott. Left is from when I first did it and right is six hours later, it wore well I think. Though I did add some inner corner sparkle.
