My morning routine as a fashion student

Wednesday, 24 March 2021 London, UK

I hope I am not the only one when I say that I absolutely adore watching morning routines on YouTube - I don't know what it is about them, I just find them really calming and relaxing to watch. These kind of videos always make me want to turn my life around and start waking up at 7 am even though I am 99% sure that will never happen. 

I decided to share my morning routine just so you can get a small peek of what a morning looks like living in London and being a fashion student (it's honestly not at all different than living anywhere else and studying something different - part of this is because of the pandemic :) so I have nothing to do in the mornings). 

Before I get onto the post, I'd just like to say that I'm sorry I've been MIA here. I had a lot of catching up to do with my university work and now that spring break is just around the corner, I can focus on both more - university and my blog.

8.00 am: Alarm goes off

I'm a 100% not a morning person (even though I try to be) but I (sometimes) like to wake up early. Usually when I wake up, I scroll through my phone a bit, answer some messages and I check my emails. 

8.20 - 9.00 am: Cleaning, skincare and coffee

After a 15,20 minute scroll through my phone, I get up and I make my bed. After that I change into something comfy - joggers and sweatshirt. Then I go to the bathroom and I wash my face with the Balea washing creme. After I do that, I go into my room and I do my everyday skin care routine.

The first product I put on my face is The Ordinary moisturizer "Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA". I've actually been using this product for a year now and I absolutely love it! It makes my skin so soft and silky and I think it really helps with blackheads and small scars. After that moisturizer, I use another one by Balea called Aqua Creme-Gel. This is super affordable in Croatia and it leaves me the glowy look I want. 

After my skin-care routine, I go into the kitchen and I make myself either a cappuccino or cocoa. I know, I know, who drinks cocoa in the morning? Well, I've been drinking cocoa in the morning since I started elementary school and my dad used to make it for me when I was younger (he makes the best god damn cocoa in the world) so I decided to continue the tradition here, all by myself, in London. 

9.00 - 9.45 am: Going through my planner, watching YouTube

After I get my hot cocoa, I sit on my desk and go through my planner. I write every task I need to do during the day and I write my notes and ideas there - usually blog post ideas and ideas for my uni work. The planner I am using is from Stradivarius and I am not exaggerating when I say that this brand has the best stationery supplies - cute and affordable (not sponsored lol I can only dream). 

After I do that, I just watch a few videos from my favourite youtubers. The ones I am loving at the moment are Claudia Sulewski (I think that my crush for this woman will never go away), Sophie Floyd, Sian Lilly.. Also can we talk about Hailey Baldwin Bieber starting her own YouTube channel? Literally in l-o-v-e.

9.45 am - 1 pm: Lectures, lectures, lectures..

From 9.45 to 10 am I just prepare for the lecture. I go through the notes and remind myself what we did last time and I check the website for any updates.

Because I am writing this post about my Monday mornings, I'll just mention that on Mondays I have Fashion Activism lecture that starts at 10 am and is until 1 pm. This is actually one of my favourite lectures so far because we're in groups and we have to do a lot of researching for brands which is so exciting! 

Thank you guys for tuning into todays post! I'll see you again on Sunday!

  1. I agree, seeing others' morning routines and just any routine is very calming. It makes me want to set a proper routine of my own so I can share haha.
