It dawned on me recently that I have never actually done one of these kinds of posts. I share my days and weekends, but not a specific morning routine. Whether it’s a weekday or weekend, it tends to stay the same. I just space it our more if I have time. It’s nothing exciting, but I wanted to share it anyway!

Okay, so here we go.

Check my phone

As I’m sure lots of us do, the first thing I do after waking up is check my phone. I like to look through notifications on What’s App, Instagram, WordPress and my email. How long I do this, depends on if I have work that day or not.

Have a shower

I am a morning shower person. It’s just how I like to start my day. I like really hot showers (unless it’s summer). They also tend to be short, only 10-15 minutes. Then I moisturize, dry my hair and start thinking about what to eat.

Breakfast and coffee

My choice of breakfast is normally very simple during the week. Cereal or toast. In the weekend I rotate between scrambled eggs on toast, porridge or pancakes. Coffee is always a must.

Browse internet

This is another part where I can spend heaps of time or little time depending on my work schedule. If I have lots of time, I will catch up on reading posts, look at the weather, watch Youtube, etc. If I have little time, I catch up on notifications on my blog again, look at the weather and read a few posts before continuing with my routine.

Brush teeth

Cause you should brush your teeth in the morning.

Get dressed


During everything else, I try to think of what I could wear that day (depending on weather as well). If it’s a work day, I normally opt for casual, comfy clothes. If it’s a weekend or day off, I try to be a little more dressy.

Hair and Makeup

Again, this depends on how much time I have. With my hair, it’s normally almost dry (as it’s shorter now), so I add my sprays and try give it volume. Sometimes I straighten it if it’s not behaving like I want it. Then I either leave it down, or tie it up in a ponytail or half up/half down. With my makeup, I leave it simple on the weekdays. Foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, sometimes lipstick. Nice and fast. On the weekends, I like to do the same, but also try my hand at adding some bronzer, and getting more complex on my eyes. In general though, my makeup routine never takes too long.

Heading Out

At this point, if I have work, I put on my shoes, grab my bag (and jacket if needed), make sure I have everything (keys, water bottle, wallet) then head off to work. If it’s the weekend, then after getting dressed I’ll do errands with Rory, or just head back on blog.

That’s it for my general morning routine. What’s your general routine like? Do you guys prefer morning showers or evening showers?

  1. When I wake up, I say my thankfuls. Brush teeth, wash face, moisturize. Read my Bible, post the verses to the blog, moderate blog. Then its empty the dishwasher and start whatever daily cleaning/activities for the day. I usually eat breakfast, and have coffee around noon. I don’t know why but I’ve never been able to eat until a few hours after I get up.


    1. It’s always interesting reading about everyone’s morning routines ? that’s strange that you prefer to have your breakfast late. I need to have it fairly soon after i wake up cause my stomach starts grumbling ?


  2. Awesome post, Angela! Love all the pictures you shared 😀 My typical morning routine is get up, check my phone, eat breakfast, have my coffee (I would have it upon waking but it takes about an hour to chill it, as I like iced coffee, haha!), clean up my room, take a shower, then get on with the day. If it’s a school day, I tackle my schoolwork, and if we’re going somewhere, I’ll hang out and do little things I enjoy (read, write blog posts, etc) until we leave. 😀 I should write a post on it! You’ve inspired me, haha!

    Also, I have to say, this is one of the only times I’ve visited your blog on PC (I usually blog read from mobile), and I wanted to say that I absolutely love your footer photos! You chose some great ones! ❤


    1. Thanks Maggie! We share similarities in our morning routine ? you should totally do a post on it! It was really fun to write!
      Aw thanks! I had a lot of fun picking out those footer images. My mobile theme isn’t as polished as it is on PC ?


      1. You’re welcome! Haha yes! I’ll definitely be taking pictures for it! No problem x and same here; it’s hard to get everything looking nice on all devices!


  3. I love this! I’m a night shower person, which started when my brother and I would have to get ready at the same time in the morning with only one bathroom and only time for one person to shower! Now I just love it, it’s so relaxing!


    1. Thanks Natalie! Haha, that’s funny how you became a night shower person. Growing up in a family of five, there was always a battle for getting up first to use the shower. We only had one bathroom as well. I always woke up an hour early to make sure I got there first ?
