Are you someone who has a morning routine? As a mom and full-time blogger, I love having a morning routine. I may not always be good with following every single thing in the morning but at least I get it done.I’ve read posts where bloggers like to share what their day looks like and that’s what I wanted today’s post to be about. But before I get things started I have to drink coffee. I’m a hot coffee person but in the summer, I do enjoy drinking iced coffee.
My Morning Routine:
Wake Up – In the summer I tend to wake up between 7-8am because the boys are gone during the summer months so that means I get to sleep in when I can.
Check Phone Notifications – I have to do this before I get out of bed. I like to check my emails, text messages, Facebook messages, Instagram and of course Twitter. Once I’ve cleared up all of my notifications, I feel so much better.
Skincare/Hygiene – Must brush my teeth and wash my face.
Coffee – Brian is in charge of making sure the coffee gets set for the morning when it comes to hot coffee but when I want a good glass of iced coffee, I like using the Illy Coffee. It’s the perfect way to make a cold brew. It’s rich, smooth and the perfect way to start your morning on a hot summer day.
System is so easy to use. All you do is add the Illy Coffee grains into the brewing container (which comes with a filter), add water and let it steep for 12-24 hours. You can also add the lid to the decanter and place the remainder of the coffee in the fridge and it will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks. So when I want a cold brew, I simply grab it out of the fridge, pour the coffee into a latte glass, add ice, lots of creamer and sugar.
Work – Once I’ve had my coffee, I like to get my work started. Meaning getting blog posts up, scheduling social media posts, participating in Facebook threads and working on new makeup looks.
Breakfast – I tend to eat a late breakfast. Usually between 10-11am.
Once I’ve eaten breakfast I get started on completing everything on to do list including house chores and figuring what to cook for dinner.
Now, I want to know what your morning routine looks like?
