So I saw this little tag a while back from Nikki over at LoveLaughsLipstick. Technically I wasn’t actually tagged but I decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a go regardless. I’ve been struggling a little bit of late.
What’s your morning beauty routine? (insert laughing emoji here)
In the interests of transparency we should skip the beauty aspect of this question and just go with routine. I’m normally ok at getting out of bed (having a child and a dog facilitate this). My first job is always pee for me, pee for the dog, wash, brush teeth.
This is usually quickly followed by perfect Latte Macchiato from my Dolce Gusto coffee machine. Once this is done I am then ready to begin the process that is extracting my 10 year old from his pit. This takes anything between 10 mins and 45 mins.
What’s for breakfast?
Caffeine and that’s pretty much it. I very rarely eat breakfast and if I do it’s not when I get up. It would usually be elevenses.
Coffee or Tea?
If it’s me then first thing it’s always coffee. If I’m out then it’s always tea and usually made by my dad.
How long does it take you to get out of the door?
Not usually that long to be honest as once it’s go time, then it’s go time. The biggest procrastinator is the dog.
What’s your go to makeup look on a fuss-free morning?
Ummmm all my mornings are fuss free when it comes to make up unless I’m going out somewhere for the day and even then the only variation is the addition of false lashes and winged eyeliner.
You can check out my usual ”Five Minute Face” over on my Instagram. This is my most used face and the only thing that changes is the lipstick.
What’s your evening beauty routine?
Wipe my face with a baby wipe and pop on some cream. I’m really into The Righteous Butter by Soap and Glory at the moment.
Snack time – what’s in the bowl?
Savoury – usually crisps. I love crisps.
How do you wind down and prep for bed?
I don’t usually wind down to be honest. I just carry myself off to bed when the mood takes me and usually end up falling asleep on my kindle. Either because I am reading something or watching something.
Cosy up! What are you wearing?
I’m not fussy about bed wear. Usually it’s PJ bottoms and a top (not matching I might add) or a good old fashioned nightie. I just grab anything I’m comfortable in.
What are some things you have to do before hitting the hay?
Practical mum things – let the dog out and make sure she’s had a tinkle.
Check the munchkin to make sure he’s not secretly on any devices watching kids scream about opening Fifa something or other (blah blah blah basically – I’ve no idea what it is but the screaming drives me murderous).
So what are your AM to PM routines? Any little nuances? Let me know.
