My Fall Morning Routine /

Hi all! I am finally settled into this season, so I wanted to tell you all about my morning routine! It's very simple, but I've always been an early bird so mornings are all about reflection and looking forward to the day. Since it's Monday, I thought this would be a perfect and simple start to the week!

Whenever the sun rises, normally between 6:25 - 6:40, Princeton wakes me up. He always wakes up with the sunrise and goes to bed at the sunset, which is both a blessing and a curse. Sometimes a girl just wants to sleep in, but I'm gonna have to admit that waking up to a fluffy white puppy licking your toes is a pretty happy way to start your morning.

Then, right after I roll out of bed I normally throw on some leggings, slippers, and a sweater and walk Princeton for about twenty minutes to get out all of his morning jitterbugs (and trust me, he always has a LOT of morning jitterbugs. anyone that's ever met him will swear to you that everyday is the best day and happiest day EVER for Princeton). After P has, well, peed, I let him wander in the kitchen and onto our patio. He might be half-blind but this pup LOVES to watch the morning sunrise, even if its mostly blurry.

Then, I normally start my breakfast and check my phone for awhile, probably like 45 minutes. I don't really have a specific thing I eat for breakfast, but it mostly varies between a smoothie, energy bar, avo toast, or mini pancakes!

After I'm done with breakfast, I wash my face and brush my teeth. Since I work every weekday morning, I always get ready for work. Normally I just wear a romper or a little dress, but since it's been getting chillier I've been throwing a sweater on top. Once I'm dressed, I do my eyebrows and put on face lotion, deodorant and perfume. I really never wear makeup unless its a date night with M because my face is really sensitive to anything that touches it, and I also think it makes wearing makeup more of a special occasion.

After this, I normally throw my hair up into a messy bun and then make my bed. I really like making my bed in the mornings because it makes my day feel a lot more put together, and I think its just a nice thing to do to get your headspace in order.

Normally by now, it's time for me to leave so I kiss Princeton goodbye and go on a quick coffee run. Because of rush hour, it takes me about 45 minutes to get to work, so having some coffee to wake me up in a sleepy car ride is really nice. And that's just about my entire morning schedule Mon - Fri ! I hope you all enjoyed + have a lovely Monday! xx
