Happy Tuesday friends!

Today I'm brining you a little bit of a different kind of post. I have been seeing lots of bloggers / YouTubers share their morning routine / how they get ready and maybe it's my nosey side coming through, but I love reading those types of post! I thought it would be fun to share my morning routine with you all, but keep in mind I'm a fairly low maintenance gal when it comes to getting ready in the morning. Without further ado, let's just jump right in!

8:00 am - Wake up
I'd like to think I wake up every morning looking this happy and wide awake but that's just not the case most mornings. Some days I wake up 30 minutes to an hour before my alarm and other days I hit snooze about 15 times before I wake up. It happens. After I finally decide to wake up I usually lie in bed for a while scrolling through my phone and catching up on what I've missed throughout the night. I know it's a bad habit to get straight to your phone right when you wake up, but it really does help me wake up. 

8:10 am - Make my bed
After about 5- 10 minutes of scrolling through every social media site I finally get out of bed to start my day. I like to get in the habit of drinking a glass of water right when I wake to hydrate myself. Another habit I've been trying to get into is making my bed right when I wake up. This instantly makes my room look so much neater and it's nice to get into a neatly made bed every night.

p.s. Do any of you sleep in matching pajamas?? I do mainly when the weather starts to cool down and some of my friends joke that I look like a grandma. I think they're so cute!! I got mine a couple years ago during the Victoria Secret Semi-Annual sale, but I think this one these ones are super similar!

8:15am - 8:25am Get ready for the day
Time to start getting ready! 90% of the time I shower at night so I don't really take a shower in the morning. My typical routine of getting ready is brushing my teeth, putting in my contacts and moisturizing my face. My favorite face moisturizer to use is by Olay. I love it and it isn't harsh on my sensitive skin. I told you, I'm pretty basic and low maintenance. 

8:25am - 8:40am Do my hair
I'm really one to do my hair every single day because thankfully with my hair I can roll out of bed and it looks pretty decent and go on with the day. For those days where my hair does need a little help or I just simply want to do it this would be the time frame I would fix it up. Lately, I have been loving curling my hair with my new Sapphire Curling Wand. I wrote a whole review of this curling wand if you would like to read more on it here

I'm pretty picky when it comes to hair spray and the Sammy Skyscraper hairspray is my favorite! It keeps my curls all day and doesn't have a super-strong hair spray scent.

80% of the time when I do curl my hair, the curls do hold on till the next day and I wake up with some pretty subtle waves. Which is awesome because I don't have to spend time doing my hair the next day and I have more time to lay in bed or eat breakfast! (: 

8:40am - 9:00am Get dressed
Okay, this has probably been the most time-consuming part of my morning routine (anyone else?!). Some days I'm pretty good at laying out an outfit I'm going to wear the night before and avoid the whole "I have nothing to wear" phase in the morning, but on other days my morning looks like this... 

Who else goes through about 24 different outfit changes before settling on their first choice? *Guilty* Even on days when I have an outfit planned out I tend to change my mind and struggle with trying to find something to wear. If I'm ever late then it's most likely because I couldn't find anything to wear...

24 outfit changes later and I am finally ready to accessorize and finish off my outfit. On this particular day, I decided to top my outfit off with my current favorite bar necklace! I love how simple it is and how it goes with so many things!

My last step for my getting ready process is putting on my scent for the day! Currently, I have been loving my Pistachio Brulee body mist that I picked up from Urban Outfitters! It smells so yummy!!

9:00am - 9:10am Plan out my day / write my to-do list
I swear I CANNOT function without a to-do list. Every morning I like to sit down, look at my planner and write do a list of things I need to do that day. I sometimes joke saying you can tell that I'm stressed out if I have 8923 lists everywhere because I'm frantically trying to plan my life out. 

9:10am - 9:15am Pack my bag for the day
The last thing I do before running out the door to get breakfast (BEST meal of the day) is to pack up my bag for the day. If you're curious to see what all I carry in my bag I've done a full What's in my school bag blog post on the blog! 

9:15 / 9:20am Head out for the day!
And that's it! I'm off to class, the coffee shop, to meet up with friends, what ever I'm doing for that day! My morning routine varies slightly from day to day, but for the most part I like to try and keep a routine to keep me a little sane. 

What are your mornings like? Let me know in the comments down below! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week and as always thank you for reading!
