I have something a bit different for you today. As I said here, I want to be more personal and let you take a glimpse into my daily life more often. As a quite nosy gal, I love getting to know the person behind a blog and their routines so I thought it would be interesting to share with you a typical day in my life.
Let me warn you, it is a normal workday, nothing fancy or very entertaining. But I thought it could still be fun to share it nonetheless. Hope you find it interesting!
Here is what I get up to on a normal weekday.
A Typical Day In My Life
My Morning Routine
The alarm goes off at 6:35 so that I have exactly one hour before having to get out of the door. After 5 to 10 minutes laying in bed, I get up and go straight to the bathroom. That’s when I start my beauty routine: cleanse my skin with Garnier Micelar Water and apply my morning moisturizer, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+.
I then head to the kitchen to have breakfast. Lately, it has been a cup of hot chocolate (very healthy, I know, but I’m not a big fan of coffee) and a toast.
I usually get out of the house around 7:40 am and head to work, which usually takes about 45 minutes. I begin work at 9 am but if I get out of the house too late, I get stuck in traffic so I prefer to leave a little bit earlier and have time to spare.
When I get to work, I stay in the car for a few minutes and that’s when I write in The Five Minute Journal. In the morning I tend to use the app and then, right before bed, I copy to the journal and reply to the evening questions, as well. While I’m in the car I also watch one or two Youtube videos before heading to the office. It’s my quiet time and I really enjoy it.
My Day Routine
I work from 9 am to 6:30 pm with a few breaks in between. I work in web marketing in the interior design field and my day usually involves writing for blogs and managing social media accounts.
During my lunch break, I either take a few minutes to work on my blog, scroll through social media or go for a quick walk around the block if it’s sunny – really need to this more often now that the weather is getting warmer.
When 6h30 pm finally rolls around, I head home happily while blasting my music.
My Night Routine
Usually, I get home around 7h30, take a shower, and move on to my evening beauty routine.
I start by cleansing my skin with Garnier Micelar Water followed by one of my current favorite beauty products, the PIXI Hydrating Milky Mist. I’m not sure if it actually does something to my skin but I love the fresh feeling of spraying it on my face and its wonderful scent. After that, I apply my moisturizer. In the evenings, I prefer to use something more hydrating than in the mornings and, at the moment, I’ve been loving Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. The last step is to apply Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.
After dinner with my parents, I help clean the kitchen and prepare my lunch bag for the next day. Then I usually scroll through my Bloglovin or Facebook feed or watch some Youtube videos. If I’m feeling it, I work on my blog for a little bit. But, to be honest, I get home mentally tired so I don’t really feel like writing. Today is not the case, apparently, since it is 22h30 pm and I’m feeling very inspired.
Before bed, I brush my teeth and plan my outfit for the next day so that I don’t have to worry about that in the morning. I then write three amazing things that happened during the day on The Five Minute Journal and read a few pages – just finished Me Before You. After that, I set the alarm for the next day and switch the lights off, usually before 11:30 pm. I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier but have not been succeeded so far.
And that’s it, a typical workday.
