Hi elf-ryone! 💚 Today is the 5th day of 12 days of Xmas and I’m going to be sharing my Winter morning routine with you! This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time now and so Winter has beaten Spring, Summer and Autumn to the finish line 😂 It’s fairly straightforward and just filled with the little things that make my day (aka my dogs 😂) so here we go!
On a Winters morning I try my hardest not to have a lay in and more than often fail because it’s so difficult to get out of bed into the cold! I drink my tablets with a lot of water and then try to drag my dressing gown out from underneath Toby (our smallest dog) who comes up every morning to get in out of the cold with me and I wrap him up in what he has claimed as his “blanket” until I have the guts to take it away from him 😂. If he’s coming downstairs with me and gets down I’ll then make my bed and do the blinds up to let in some natural light! ☁️ (Cloud because the sun hasn’t come out in ages 😂). I think I wake up as soon as that light comes in as until then I’m going about things like the spitting image of a zombie 😂
Downstairs I give Ruby our Labrador a fuss as she jumps out of bed to come see me before popping the kettle on to fill up my hot water bottle, opening up my advent calendar and scrolling through my phone. Throughout Winter I usually stick to having a mildly hot breakfast (unless I’m in a rush) and toast with jam or spaghetti is my go to!
Before I get changed I go through my skincare routine which involves the tea tree + vitamin facial wipes which wake me up as they’re FREEZING (I featured them on my November favourites) and either Freederm moisturizer or a Garnier one.
Feeling as fresh as a daisy that can’t survive throughout the cold Winter months I wash and change (most probably into a warm jumper 🤗) before going about my day!
And that’s that for my Winter morning routine! Thank you for reading 😉 What is the one thing that you think is the most important part of your mornings? You can find the rest of the 12 days of Xmas posts so far HERE! 🎄Take care and have a lovely day guys! ❤️
