My Morning Routine


Hi blog friends!!

I love watching and reading about other people's morning routine's and the products they use and thought I would share mine, the time scale of 'morning' is an ambiguous one for me as I usually start getting ready at like 1pm haha but still, this is what I do most mornings, so here it is!


So the first thing I do is wake up (obviously Kathryn thanks) and scroll through all my social media's and reply to any emails I have, I usually spend most of my morning doing this because my bed is so cosy and this morning it was raining (surprise surprise, it is Summer after all) and I did not want to get out of bed! 
I thought I'd also show you my pyjamas (and grumpy face) they're a miss-match of Beauty and the Beast shorts from TopShop and a 'Thing 1' top from Universal Studios in Florida. I got this in 2009 and is actually a childs size medium and it still fits haha!!


Next I head downstairs and say hello to the fam, then I make myself a cup of white tea (it's better for you than green tea), grab a glass of really cold water and today I was feeling lazy so had a pain au chocolat for breakfast, I know it's not very healthy but oh well! Also check out that crazy bed hair!


Once I have finished my breakfast and chatted with Dad I head on upstairs for a shower, today I used both my shampoo and conditioner, Zoella's Scrubbing Me Softly body scrub and the Palmolive Mediterranean Moments shower gel in Argan Oil and Almond (the smell is heavenly!). Today's shower soundtrack was 'The Nations Favourite 80's Number 1's' which I can't stop listening too!

Once I'm out the shower I brush my teeth and mouthwash, at the moment I am using Colgate Max Fresh toothpaste and Colgate Plax Whitening mouthwash which leaves a really nice spearminty taste. 
Then I start my skincare routine, I use the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish in the Chamomile and Orange Flower scent. Whilst doing this I had a little dance to 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go' by Wham haha! 
Also in the last picture fear not I am wearing a towel!


Then I carry on my routine upstairs in my bedroom, firstly I put in my contact lenses so I can finally see what I'm doing, because up till now I have just been guessing I'm using the right thing! 
I start by toning using the Liz Earle Skin Tonic on a cotton wool pad, sadly I have finished mine now so need to purchase another one very soon as this is my favourite toner!
I then move onto serum and right now I'm using the Nip+Fab Skin Dragons Blood Plumping Serum, which is really lovely and has a nice scent. I actually feel like my skin is a lot more plump and fresh since using this.
Then it's moisturiser time and I am using the La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense for dry skin, which is super hydrating and leaves my skin feeling quenched and soft.


Then it's time for make up (my favourite part). Today on my face I used:







I don't know if you can see, but in the last picture, the earrings I am wearing are from Jemma's (Dorkface) Etsy shop and I am literally in love with them, they're little pink bows and they're so cute!!


A quick OOTD as well! I am wearing this Bardot top from New Look and also these petite white ripped knee jeans from New Look! (That is a make up sponge next to my foot in case you were wondering haha!)

I hope you enjoyed this, I really enjoyed doing this post and hopefully I will do one on my night-time routine in the near future!

Lots of love
Katy xxx

  1. This is such a fun post and it's always interesting to have a nosey at what people get up too. My routine is very similar but I may have to invest in the nip+fab serum! I've been looking for something like this a while now x
