Morning Routine

 Did you know that one in ten people only washes their hair once or less a week? I was so jealous when I read this statistic for a campaign that Pebble Grey, a company specialising in online bathroom accesories conducted (you should definitely check out their website - I am in love with their bathroom ideas page!). Talk about being jealous. I'd love to get away with that! Unfortunately, I have very fine hair so this is not an option for me but it did get me thinking about my morning routine which is shamefully very basic. I'm quite lazy! Especially when my bed looks as pretty as this...


 However, I do like to leave myself plenty of time in the mornings - there is nothing worse than feeling rushed and stressed out before you have even walked out of the door. Leaving myself time gives me a chance to relax in the mornings, and feel truly prepared for a day at work! I start my day with a short, but super sweet shower - at the moment I have been loving Imperial Leather's sweet shower gel range: the marshmallow one is divine. If I'm not washing my hair, I'm definitely rocking the Frozen shower cap..No shame here!

 I must admit, I'm far too lax with my skincare. I don't wash my face with products everyday, and I definitely should, but I find that on the whole my skin is pretty good and when I do put product on it it makes it worse. I tend to properly cleanse my face before bed to clean the icky stuff off my face. So a face wash in the shower is as good as it gets. In the Winter, I'll use moisturizer before I go but I don't tend to wear make up.

One of the things I am specific about is definitely brushing my teeth. It's something I make sure I do no matter what - it can be so easy to get comfy in bed and just not want to brush your teeth but it is so important. Last pay-day I treated myself to an electric toothbrush which was very adult of me if I may say so myself.

I would never brush my teeth before my morning breakfast and cuppa tea though! They are my STAPLES in my morning routine. Tea is comforting, and breakfast gives me the energy I need for a busy morning. This is easily my favourite part of my morning; the relaxing time before I get ready for my day. By the time I've finished - I'm ready to leave the house ready for a day at work!

What do you do in the mornings? Do you have a routine?

  1. People usually freak out when I tell them this but I actually wash my hair every day. I've been doing it since I was about ten as it used to get so oily there's no way I could have left the house without washing it, and although I probably could get away with doing it every other day now it just wouldn't feel right to me! I keep meaning to pick up some dry shampoo and see if I can get away with it, but it's been a part of my routine for so long now I just can't imagine not washing it each morning.
    My fiance always teases me about how early I get up in the morning, but I also like to give myself plenty of time so I don't end up rushing around like a headless chicken or it just isn't a good start to the day :)
    Love Holly x

    1. I used to do the same!! Mine was very oily too, but since making it my new years resolution last year my hair is a lot less oily and has grown so much. Dry shampoo is an absolute game-changer in the first few weeks. I'd really recommend CoLab - it's the best one I've tried so far and I've tried a few. I agree! I felt really rushed this morning and ended up leaving for work in a bit of panicked and grumpy mood so I'm team leaving lots of time too!! XXX

  2. I only wash my hair twice a week, because I am lazy and can't bothered to wash it at times... oops! My hair takes so long to dry, so it's a lot of effort! I need to get a Frozen shower cap like yours! x

  3. Your bed looks so pretty! Having a duvet like that would mean I would never want to leave it, I would just go outside wrapped in it xD I love reading these kind of posts! I followed you on GFC :D xx
