I know for a lot of people, school will be starting soon, so I wanted to do a post that is related to school. I also wanted to do another routine post so have decided to compare my school mornings to my weekend mornings. I can already tell you that they are VERY different and my mornings never go to plan when I have school...So lets get on with the post!
Weekend/Holiday Morning Routine
Wake UpI set my alarm for around 8, depending on what time I end up going to bed, but the majority of the time I press the snooze button and wake up at half 8. I then end up going on my phone for about 20 minutes looking at all my social media and replying to conversations from that night. If it's Sunday, I will watch Louise Pentland's (Sprinkle Of Glitter) weekly Vlog.
After dragging myself out of bed, I always have to put socks on straight away (I don't like feet so will never walk around bare footed) and then I will head down stairs, of course bringing my phone with me. I will then see my dogs, who are always really cute in the morning and spend about 10 minutes just being with them.
Have BreakfastAfter, washing my hands, I will grab breakfast which can vary in what I have as I always fancy something different each day. I will also make a cup of tea, which I will have every morning with out a doubt! Whilst eating my breakfast I will sometimes watch Youtube if no-one else is eating otherwise I won't. If I am reading a really good book I will sometimes read as well.
Get Dressed and Wash My FaceOnce I have finished breakfast I will go back up stairs and get changed, if I know I am not going anywhere that day I will wear leggings and a jumper, but most of the time I wear jeans. I will then brush my teeth and wash my face, which you can go check out as I have recently done a post on My Skin Care Routine.
Do My HairI don't do much with my hair so it doesn't take me long to do it, I normally will put it half up half down and will sometimes straighten it if I haven't braided it the night before.
That is my routine for when I don't have to be anywhere in the morning. I don't rush to get ready and will sometimes have a shower as I have much more time compared to a school morning.
School Morning Routine
Wake UpMy alarm goes of at 7, but I properly wake up at half 7 as I am always really tired. But a lot of the time I will wake up later which isn't very helpful as I will end up rushing even more. It is my own fault for not waking up earlier though...
Get ChangedI always like to go on my phone, which I shouldn't as I get way to distracted and not getting out of bed until around 7:45, which only leaves me 45 minuted to get ready. I will then get changed which always seems to take me longer on a school day as I can never find anything to wear, I will then finally find something and will have to quickly put it on as I have wasted so much time already.
BreakfastI will go down stairs and eat breakfast and drink my tea. I normally only have cereal on a school day as it is the quickest meal for when I need to hurry. I will also never end up finishing my tea as its too hot to drink fast.
Pack My BagIf someone is in the bathroom I will pack my bag, which normally only has my notebooks, water, my lunch and a pencil case. But if I still can't go in the bathroom I will check my phone.
Change AGAINAfter washing my face and what not, there is a high chance that I will change my outfit again as I am not happy with it. This will take about 10 minutes as I just struggle so much to find something to wear! I will also put my shoes on and bring my bag down stairs with me.
Make My LunchIf I didn't do my lunch the night before as I couldn't be bothered I will do it now. I tend to have the same thing most days as its just easier and I know I will like it. I will then pack this into my bag with a bottle of water which I never end up drinking until I'm back at home.
LeaveI will then quickly put my coat on and leave around half 8, which gives me enough time to not have to rush.
These are both of my morning routines, I hope you enjoyed the post and if you have any suggestions on other posts which you would like me to do please leave a comment down below.
Until next time...
