A Day Off Morning Routine

All the years of having this blog, I don't think I have ever done a sort of 'day in the life of' post. So this weeks post is about to change all of that. I must admit that my days off aren't the most exciting unless I have plans, which is very rarely the case (working in hospitality means that you're off when none of your friends are haha). But I do love a morning to myself, and this is what my typical morning on a day off looks like for me.

A lie in never happens. Body clock usually wakes me up between 7:30 and 8:30. Fingers crossed that it is nearer to 8:30 and I can have a slightly longer sleep than on a working day. I will then stay in bed until 9:30 ish, be comfy, catch up on some YouTube or finish what I was watching on Netflix. So maybe that does count as a bit of a lie in haha.

Next is breakfast. I have been getting into the habit of drinking green tea first thing (even when I am at work). A mug of green tea, and a bowl of porridge is my go to choice for breakfast at the moment. Granola, with some Alpro vanilla yoghurt and fruit, or some waffles with maple syrup as a treat have also been favs of mine recently. Something about a warming bowl of porridge on a cold, rainy morning. I do like to add banana to my porridge if I have any, and maybe a squirt of honey or golden syrup.


After breakfast, is where I end up changing from my pyjamas, to that pair of trackies that I wear around the house with a big baggy jumper. It's almost as if I am changing from one pair of pyjamas, to another.. I dont tend to do my makeup on a day off, even if I do leave the house. It's nice to let your skin breathe once in a while. From here, I make a mental list of all the things I need to organise or get done that day, and try and work my way through them. Even if it's just hoovering or tidying my room or downstairs (what a thrilling day off, I know..) or popping to the supermarket or bank. My days off are also spent drafting blog posts, taking photos for those posts, and reading through other bloggers post, gaining inspiration and finding new individuals to follow. I have recently, brought some bits to learn how to start handlettering. I've always admired those beautiful fonts that look so effortless to create, but I am aware you have to start somewhere haha. If I get through my list, those are the things that I have been loving to do recently.


Throughout the day at home, I ensure that I try and drink as much water as possible. Ever since Waterdrop got in contact last time, the use of their gorgeous bottle and Microdrink really have improved my efforts of drinking more water.

I definitely prioritise my days off as giving myself that extra time to catch up on what I need too, and relax. I hope that you reading this, also spend some time on your days off or weekend, to take a moment for yourself and catch up on what you've been meaning too.

What do your days off start with?
