Is it just me, or are you just absolutely fascinated by You Tubers ‘Get Ready With Me’ videos… you know the ones that I mean. Where they wake up with their hair in a neatly tied bun with the most gorgeous cute pyjamas and then pace over to their immaculate dressing table, to then proceed with their skincare routine and then prettily apply their makeup. Yeah…that’s not me, honestly those You Tubers are so lucky because I can never wake up to look that great and be so motivated to put on makeup in the morning! (Haha!) Today I thought it would be nice to do my own get ready with me, for you all to see how my typical weekend morning goes.
Sleepy Liv waking up! So first of all when I wake up I will always check my phone to see what time it is because if it’s only 7am, you bet I am going to sleep for another hour…or two…or maybe three. Even if it’s getting really late, I will actually go back to sleep JUST to try and finish my dream. ( Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this!)
Once I finally arise and adjust back to the real world, I will grab my phone and catch up on social media. I instagram browse for a good 15-20 minutes or so! I am literally obsessed with Instagram to the point where it’s getting pretty bad!
After I finally convince myself get out of my bed, I will head over to the bathroom to brush my teeth. I know that some people only brush before their breakfast and some only after, but because of my braces I have to brush my teeth before and after breakfast and it takes absolutely ages which sucks! Then I will head downstairs and make myself some breakfast. I am super dooper moody in the morning until I eat my breakfast which is quite strange I guess! I normally go for something like a smoothie with a pancake and some fruit on top, but for those days when I just can’t be bothered, cereal will do me just fine.
Now I’ve really been trying to get into a daily routine for my skincare. I mean some days I will go full out and wash, exfoliate, cleanse, tone and moisturize but if I’m in a little bit of a rush and don’t have time to go through all that hastle, I will normally reach for my Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash to revitalise my face and my Garnier Moisturizer just to hydrate my skin to give my face a natural healthy glow.
Makeup is something I am constantly experimenting with, so I do usually put in a bit of an effort to use my makeup on the weekends, especially since I can’t wear it to school. This morning, I went for something really simplistic: A light dusting of powder, a subtle golden eye, winged eyeliner and a sheer lip gloss. After I few attempts at getting the ‘perfect’ liner and after pulling odd faces whilst applying my mascara, I am all ready to start picking out my outfit for the day!
I will normally hop over to my desk and take out my laptop to get some inspiration for my outfit because I am so indecisive when it comes to picking out something to wear! Pinterest is my main source for where I get my outfit ideas from and this morning I saw quite a lot of grunge style looks with checked shirts, so that’s what I went for! Some black leggings, paired with a ribbed black crop top and a cute little checked shirt.
Once I’m on my laptop, I am pretty much glued to it for another half an hour! Browsing from site to site and sometimes I don’t even realise how I got onto these new websites on blogs. Whilst I was style hunting, I came across a new fashion website called Esprit, I had heard of them a few times before but never seemed to bring myself to look them up. But if you are looking for a new place to shop for those instagram-able clothes then you may want to have a snoop around on the Esprit website! And because not many people know about it, you can be super original with awesome clothes that no one knew where you got them from. (Hahaha!)
Once I pick out an outfit, I will pack my bag and off I go – and I’m not even going to lie, sometimes I do get ready to then end up staying at home, but ya know what, I am proud to do that because I don’t need to get glammed up just to go out, I can get glammed up for myself. *high five if you do this too* (tehehe!) That day I was going out with my friends for the day, so this was basically what I did to get ready for that!
So now you know how I get ready in the mornings and also how unproductive I can be some days! Hopefully you enjoyed this little ‘Get Ready With Me’ and I shall talk to you all next week!
P.S: I’ve wanted to invest in some more high end makeup but have been too scared too, any recommendations? Also, are you a morning person? Byesies! Xx
