Develop A Morning Routine…

STEP 1: Stretch.

Turn to your side, after hitting that snooze button, as you battle your stay in dreamland or reality.. but a pillow in between your legs and start your day with being thankful. We all believe in something.. what ever it is that you believe in right now.. baby girl thank it. This morning I’ve thanked God. Thanked him for giving me another day and for making me lazy enough to use my snooze time to talk to him.. and for the love of everything good thanked him for coffee.. which brings us to…

STEP 2: Coffee.

Remember how your mother taught you to prepare everything the night before?

This is the time of the day you silently thank her. You crawl your way to the coffee machine, half-sedated in sleep, and push the magic button as you watch the magic brew. This is a ritual you follow every morning as you declare your love for coffee. Every. Morning.

STEP 3: Buffering

I know you are only on your first cup.. but my love you need to get your day started. Take that cup of magic to the toilet with you, and let us find out what it is we are working with today.

Terrible right? The reflection of your messed up hair, and very swollen face – this is the time my dear to take a cold shower. Yes. COLD. Trust me…. you need all the help you can get, because coffee alone is not enough.

STEP 4: Freshen up.

Awake now? no? Maybe get that second cup of coffee in first.

But by now you should be cold… Clean… Why don’t you make a run for it to the bed and get warmed up in there? Sure… You’re naked… but you usually sleep naked, and that bed-warmer your mum got you ages ago is still there… Waiting… Take some time to go through social media.. what did you miss? Should we read the news? Naaahhhh no need to bitter your day like that.. instead look for a killer playlist and get in the mood for the day.

STEP 5: Dance.

Can’t stay in bed all day. Get out. I know it sucks, but you know getting out and getting dressed takes 0.2 seconds. Ok. That’s a lie… but still… you can lie to yourself like this sometimes in the morning.

Just wear your regular outfit.. oversized sweater and jeans.. or maybe you’ll feel like dressing up today? No. You’re right. We don’t have time to be uncomfortable. Instead, put on an outfit that is you and let’s do something about that bird’s nest on our head.

STEP 6: Makeup.

Or more like “step-take-forever”. Put your hair straightener to heat up first. Thank me later. While that is happening.. brush your teeth. Coffee will be disgusting after but that’s Ok. Do it. When that is out of the way take your time. Moisturise. Enjoy the imperfections. Dance a little.. and little by little put on your face for the day. More on that routine later.

STEP 7: Hair.

Okai soldier time is running out.. give your hair some volume by slightly twisting the straightener as you pass it through.. My love the beauty of short hair is to have it wild and free. Don’t obsess too much, but put a curl here and there. You will be fine.

STEP 8: run out.

Time is running out. Chugg the remaining of your.. what is this.. fifth cup? and make a run for it. No.. There is no time for breakfast. Put on your shoes and go.
