Morning Routine

This post is in collaboration with fellow blogger and dear friend Robyn! Check out her morning routine over on her blog Every Small Endeavour! All photos are shot by the bf Clarence :) (check him out at his Instagram @thebabylens!).


When I do have a day off work, I enjoy taking it slow in the morning.



Getting out of a cozy and warm bed is hard enough, so I wash up to kick-start my body and mind. My skincare usually stays the same but lately I've been trying products from Chorus Supernatural and I really like them! You can read my review of the brand here!


- Cleanser: Chorus Cleanse*
- Toner: Chorus Tone*
- Eye cream: Biotherm Aquasource Total Eye Revitalizer (I didn't like this one, trying to use it up right now)
- Moisturizer: Chorus Hydrate*



On the days when I'm on the go heading to work, I must admit that I don't have a good habit of having breakfast. I try to make up for it on days off by eating my personal breakfast of champions: hashbrowns (an absolute MUST for me), eggs, and luncheon meat.



While eating, I do my devotions on the She Reads Truth app on my phone. It's so refreshing to start my day with some truth and encouragement from God's Word.


My to-do list has gotten so long, and it's currently filled with tasks related to an overall organization of my room. Whenever I come home from work I'm already tired and I don't feel like tackling this list, so I try to complete as many of them on my day off. One of them is going through my humongous pile of cards and notes: sorting out which ones I would like to keep and organizing them (yes, I'm a hoarder when it comes to cards...).



When it's about time to go out, I get dressed and do some light makeup. Everything is kept simple and I dress myself up with some colour on the lips:



- Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light/Medium
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Medium Light Neutral
- Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in 05
- Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Waterproof Mascara in Very Black (I don't love this, Covergirl Supersizer Mascara is the way to go!)
- Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Berry Boost (I did not like this at all, it had a weird smell even after application, something similar is the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Barcelona Nights)





Today's outfit is very comfortable but I dressed it up with my black heeled booties. Perfect for an afternoon with Robyn.


-  Long knit cardigan: H&M
- Scarf: H&M
- Sunglasses: Rayban aviators (Eyestar Optical)
- Booties: Old Navy



That's how my mornings are like! What's your morning routine like?


Until next time, Des
