Happy Sunday and happy fall!!!! I know I am not the only weirdo who loves seeing what other people do as a part of their daily routines, so today I am bringing you one of my own! MY WEEKDAY NIGHT ROUTINE WOOHOOO! During these cozy fall months, after a long day of classes I try to keep my nights free so I can wind down, spend some time with my friends, or just chill by myself. I have pretty early morning classes (which I actually love) and am typically done by at least 1PM so I don’t usually have a ton of homework to do in the evenings unless I am studying for a quiz or exam. I am an early to bed, early to rise type a gal and my nights are comfy, boring and relaxing, just how I like them.
First, I usually start out by making my dinner. Having a kitchen this year has been a TOTAL game changer. I love that I can make my own food when I want it and don’t have to worry about when or even worse, what, I am going to eat at the dining halls. Some of my favorite meals to make are pasta, crock pot meals (I know, am I 80? Yes. But they are so easy!!), and sweet potatoes in the oven! During this time I might watch some TV or eat with my roomie and chat about our days.
After dinner, I will get in some comfier clothes (if I’m not already) and light a bunch of candles. My friends and I might watch a TV show or I will watch something on my own. One of our current faves is Riverdale duh!! Highly recommend if you haven’t seen it! TOO much drama WOAH.
SO once all of the unwinding happens I actually start getting ready for bed. I start by taking off my makeup, washing my face, and doing my nighttime skincare. I use the Simple Cleansing Wipes for my face and to take off my eye makeup I use the Garnier SKINACTIVE Micellar Cleansing Water with a cotton round so I’m not tugging on my eyes with the wipes.
I have gone back to my roots lately for my skincare lately. I have tried A LOT of skincare products but what has proven itself time and time again is:
- CeraVe Oil Control Foaming Facial Cleanser
- OLEHENRIKSON Truth Serum
- CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion
These combined with my prescription acne cremes is the perfect combination for my skin.
I then get in bed and make a rough to do list for the next day. This includes homework or anything I have planned the next day in order to be productive. After this, I schedule out my Facebook posts for my job working for Mama Said Tees (literally the BEST job I am so lucky). Check out our amazing and KIND tees and apparel!
I usually go to bed around 10:30 or 11 since I have to get up between 6 and 7 for classes every day. Night time is a time for me to relax while also preparing for the next day. Hope you enjoyed my Fall Night Routine!! (morning routine coming soon???)
