Isn’t it funny, “Good Morning” is one of the sweetest thing you hear all day. When someone says “Good Morning” to you, it never sounds mean… I Love it! I’ve said it before in a far away tweet somewhere, I wish everyone spoke in their morning voices all day long. It’s so whispery and soft….
Moving ahead, today I am taking you down a rabbit hole of NECESSARY products. I have found in the past few years, I have definitely become a morning routine type of gal. Let me tell you, when I am not at home and not in my typical swing of things, I almost don’t know what to do with myself. Is this adulting? I am so particular in the order of my morning.
So today I wanted to take you through a step by step of my typical morning. NOT because I need you to copy it.. or because you even really give a shit.. but because I have discovered some amazing products that have made my mornings heavenly.
Step 1: Coffee.
Coffee, and coffee drinkers… is very Cult-ish. When people don’t have their coffee, or cannot find a coffee place or anything pertaining to the caffeine entering the throat…. IT’S ONNNNNN. Right? I fall into this category.
So recently, it was Kevin’s Birthday. A fabulous day on which my little Filotto came into the world.. and me, being the stellar fiancé that I am wanted to get him something different, yet practical. So I purchased him this beautiful travel bag.. a duffle if you will.. and he, didn’t like it. Instead he requested:
“Can you get a cold brew maker, and make it for me every morning for a year?”
At first I was all…”WTF Kevin.” But then I realized that this cold brew maker was WAY more affordable than the Bag I purchased him, so it seemed like a win. (and I never negotiated the second part of the deal.)
But let’s just say, we are both absolutely in love with this purchase. It is AMAZING for summertime. Or, if you are a two-timer with the coffee and need an afternoon cup, then this is perfect for an afternoon pick me up.
Game Changer. It is so simple to make, and it easily makes 4 cups of cold brew. Yummy!
Step 2: SkinCare
I feel the need to be honest with you guys, I am not always pristine on this end of my routine. It varies.. but I try SO HARD Okay? I am pretty basic with my skincare routine. My esthetician has really helped me change my skin, and it was ONLY because she said to stop using so much shit. Or Product, she said product, but I say shit. A while back, my sista from the SAME mista bought me an ice roller and it is so fun!
I try to use this every morning after a night of drinking. I will be honest in my review that I am not one of those influencers who says, “OMG IT TOOK TEN POUNDS OFF OF MY FACE!” It didn’t.. but It IS such a nice touch after a cleanse of your skin. It makes your face feel really lifted and tight. ( I have recently been using it on my ass.) JUST KIDDING! But for real I should! Hahah!
The best part is that sometimes I even find Kevin using it.. is really is quite nice mid-hangover. It also really soothes me if I have a headache! So many things.. so affordable so just do it already. I know you have seen hundreds of bloggers who use them, there must be SOMETHING to it.
Another thing that I have REALLY been religious about morning and night.. is my rose mist. I am not joking you guys.. I spray this stuff generously over my face, neck, and chest.. and I have never been more smooth! It is really something. I typically moisturize/spf then do an eye cream.. then I bathe in this mist and it is JUST the most refreshing situation.
I love, you Love.. we all Love!
Step 3: Social Media
Each and every single one of you would be lying through your teeth if you said you didn’t get up and check your phone messages, and social media in the morning. I realize for me this is somewhat of a job now.. but you ALL do it too so keep reading.
After the coffee is made and the face is refreshed, I like to sit down and watch the news while cuddling Banks and drinking my coffee. Most of you see this almost every morning on my social media platforms and are probably so annoyed, but I really do make time for this every day.
Here is my last little tidbit for today on useful products. If you find yourself very invested in social media platforms, and you are constantly tapping around, coloring, drawing with your finger… stop right here. I have made this purchase and it has changed the game for me entirely. A stylus for your phone. The best part is that this is a pack of 10, so you can store them in every little crevice so you always have one!
Thank me later ya’ll. I know this seems like an idiotic purchase, but for that price, and the efficiency that it will bring you. I will be the one laughing! Go grab it!
So random right?
I love a good random post. But I find sooo many fun things, that I found it so necessary to share with you all.
