Morning Routine 2017

I have been planning this post for ages but the morning is always such a rush to be honest but, I finally did it so here you go!


First of all I go and fill my water bottle up and take my vitamins just because I’d forget otherwise. 


I then get some breakfast (literally never but oh well) and I actually really like these it’s like a toasted fruit bread thing. Honestly, I’m really not a breakfast fan but I do want to start trying to eat it atleast twice a week. 


Then I go back upstairs and pick out the skincare bits I’m going to use (updated skincare coming soon) and then use them. I don’t do a lot of skincare in the morning because I never really have time.
Then I get dressed. I was literally only going to my driving lesson and my Dad’s on this day so I just chucked an oversized jumper and jeans on. 


Usually finished my food by now so I go and brush my teeth. 


Then I do my hair and my makeup for the day. Comment if you do hair or makeup first because it caused quite the debate in our friendship group. 

I then pick a perfume to wear and just put on my watch and two rings. 


Before I leave my room I like to spray it so it smells nice later on in the day. 


I then go downstairs and make a cup of tea in a mug or travelflask dependent on if I have school and just get on with my day. 
I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to comment whether you do your hair or makeup first! Also follow me on Instagram (@ifyouseejaz) because I’m starting to use it more!

Night Before School

I find the night before going back to school quite a stressful/nervous one so I like to try and have a very organised and relaxing evening. I go back on Monday so this is what I’ll do on Sunday evening. I think it’s just good to really relax the night before I go back to school because it helps me to sleep easier and just relax really.

First when I get home, I’ll just double check my bag to make sure I’ve got everything that I’ll need. Honestly, I’m not sure what’s happening on Monday but I know I have finalise my subjects and choose my enrichments. I’ve just put my exam results and then four pieces of summer work in my bag; I didn’t want to put three then not be able to do a subject and be stuck. Then I just have my glasses, planner, notebook etc. I will just double check this so that I’m not panicking or rushing in the morning. You can read my full what’s in my bag here.


After I’ve done that I’ll probably just go and do my skin care routine. I don’t usually do a facemask on a Sunday but I will tomorrow just to thoroughly cleanse my skin. This might also help to relax me more. You can read about my skincare routine here.


Then I need to sort out my lunch for the next day. I’ll just put all the dry stuff in my lunch box (like crisps and pitta bread etc) and the stuff that needs to be in the fridge I’ll just put in boxes and then put back on the fridge (grapes, cucumber etc). I do this every day just because it saves time and stress in the morning.

After that I’ll just put my travel mug next to the kettle so I’m not looking for it in the morning. I always take tea with me on the bus so I have quite a few of these but the one in the photo is from Primark.


Then I’ll go for a shower, I always wash my hair on a Sunday night, it’s just when my hair washing day falls. So once I’ve washed my hair I’ll dry it properly and use my uniqone from Revlon. Then after my shower I’ll use a moisturiser just to make sure my skin is well looked after. I will probably use this one I’ve been loving from Sanctuary Spa; you can read my full review of it here. I will then just probably watch some Youtube videos for a while.


At 21:00 Victoria is on ITV1 and I’ve been loving this show recently; so after spraying this Sanctuary Spa room spray which I find so relaxing, I’ll just get into bed and watch this. This show finished at around 22:00, I think, so after that I’ll just read my book for a while. The blue light from the tele keeps you awake so reading a book is good to do just before you go to sleep. I’m reading We Were Liars at the moment and I’m really enjoying it.


I usually aim to go to bed between 22:30 and 23:00 when I’m at school just to try and get as much sleep as possible.

Just a quick note that from now posts on this blog will be every Friday or Saturday and posts on My Trending Stories (follow me here. will be on a Monday and a Friday just because I’m back at school and working.
