A Chill Morning In My Life! (Ft. Skincare Routine)

Hey daydreamers! When I was thinking of what to post this week, I remembered that I really enjoyed making my A Day in My Life: Winter Break Edition! post for Blogmas and I thought it would be fun to show you guys a morning in my life of a Thursday homework day!

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I go to school and take all my classes. Then on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and the weekend, I have assignments to complete that are due the next school day. These days are called “satellite classroom days”, but it’s easier to just call them homework or home days. πŸ˜›

Today I’m going to show y’all what a typical home-day morning looks like when I don’t have a whole lot of homework. πŸ™‚ And if you like this post, don’t forget to check out my school morning routine! Let’s get right into it!

My School Morning Routine 2021!

Hey daydreamers! First off, I didn’t get a post up last week because of the crazy winter storms in Texas – our power was out for a day, so I decided to take the week off. This was the post I had planned for last week, but school was canceled last week. πŸ˜› So I decided to move it to this week and I’m so excited for this post!

This is definitely a highly requested post, and I thought it would be super fun to show you guys what my morning routine looks like for 2021. Since I didn’t have time to take good-quality pics while still getting ready on time for school, I took most of these pictures after school, but this is still pretty accurate what my school mornings are usually like. Let’s get into it!

7:00 – I wake up from my alarm at 7:00, which is just enough time to get ready by 7:30 while getting the maximum amount of sleep possible. πŸ˜› The first thing I do when I wake up is open my curtain and blinds and stare out the window for a little bit, trying to make sense of the extremely vivid dream I had and wondering why I’m up this early.

7:02 – I head into the bathroom to wash my face with this Neutrogena face wash and my super-soft skincare headband. This is more to wake myself up than to clean my skin, and it makes me feel refreshed and slightly more awake.

7:05 – After washing my face, I get dressed in my school uniforms. We have more of a dress code than a uniform, since not everyone has to wear school-issued items, but we have to have certain length skirts, shorts, or pants in khaki or navy with a white or navy polo shirt. Today I chose my comfy dry-fit khaki skirt with a dry-fit white polo and my cheer team jacket.

7:10 – Next, I do my makeup. Sometimes I wear a tiny bit of BareMinerals foundation, and then I put on my everyday concealer and blend with a beauty blender. I use the Maddie Ziegler Imagination Palate for eyeshadow. Next, I curl my lashes and apply mascara. Finally I fill in my brows with Beauty Concept Eyebrow Tint (which is weirdly dirt for some reason, sorry lol).

7:18 – After that, I put on my watch and jewelry. Today I’m wearing some rose-gold bar earrings from this Amazon earrings pack and my favorite necklace from Kendra Scott.

7:20 – I put a bagel in the toaster and gathered all my stuff by the door while I was waiting.

7:25 – I had a really good bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, and it was super filling!

7:29 – I brushed my teeth, put on shoes and headed out the door.

7:31 – Leave for school!

This post was so fun to make! Let me know any future post ideas or requests down below, since I’m planning out pots for March! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for reading and I’ll see ya next week!

What does your school morning routine look like? What time do you get up for school?

My Winter Break Morning Routine // GRWM!

Hey daydreamers! It’s so crazy that it’s 2020. GUYS IT’S A NEW DECAAAADE!!!! πŸ˜›

Anyway, I thought it would be really fun to show you my Saturday morning routine, but since it’s still winter break, my mornings are a little bit different than usual. So, without further ado, my Saturday morning routine during winter break!


9:20 – I wake up around 9:15-ish, even though I meant to wake up at 8:00, but oh well. πŸ˜‚ My alarm doesn’t go off or anything, I just wake up when my mom comes in and opened my curtains.

9:24 The first thing I do when I wake up is make my bed – which does not usually happen on a regular day. Something about recording your morning for your blog post makes you extra-productive, I guess? πŸ˜‚

9:30 – Then I head into the bathroom and pull my hair back into a quick ponytail with a scrunchie. The only way I could get a picture of the back of my head is to hold my phone up to the mirror…

9:31 – Then I wash my face. I just use this Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser from Kroger, and I really like it. I try to make sure to wash my face first thing in the morning, because it makes me feel productive and refreshed.

9:35 – Then I apply this moisturizing lotion, but I have this teeny-tiny sample bottle that I got for my birthday, lol! I like this lotion, and it feels really good, especially because I have dry/normal skin.

9:36 – And I also use this rose water spray after moisturizing my face, you just spritz it on and it feels really good!

9:44 – Sorry about the weird picture – I had to use the self-timer on my phone and a really tiny tripod, lol. Then I head back into my room and get dressed. Today I’m just wearing a really comfy oversized pink and grey shirt that my mom passed down to me because it was too small for her, and then some black leggings.

9:52 AM – Then I head back into the bathroom and do my hair real quick – I did my normal half-up/half-down style, and then did a really small fishtail braid and added another elastic to create a little bubble.

9:54 – Next, I do my makeup for the day. First I do my brows, and I use this light brown brow cream from my makeup kit that I got for Christmas, and I use a brow brush from the same kit.

10:01 – Then, I apply mascara. I just use a Neutrogena Healthy Lengths mascara from Kroger, and it isn’t the best mascara I’ve ever used, but it works well and looks natural.

10:04 – Finally, I apply some lip gloss. This one is from that same kit, from Ulta. It’s a little dark, so I dab some of it off with a tissue.

10:05 – Makeup done!

10:30 – Every Saturday since I was a baby, me, my dad, and little sister have been riding our bikes to a donut place that’s a few blocks away from our house. Since my dad wasn’t home this morning, my sister and I rode our bikes by ourself and bought a donut for each of us and brought it home. I got a fresh glazed that was soooo good!

And then I made myself some apple spice-flavored tea (that smells amaaaaazing) in this stormtrooper mug, because I can. πŸ˜‚ This mug is hilarious. As I sipped my tea, I responded to some comments and read some blog posts.

And thus ends my Saturday winter break morning routine! I hope you guys enjoyed reading this, I had so much fun making this! See ya next Saturday!
