I still get super excited every year about waking up christmas morning! So Dorota and I thought it would be a nice idea to share our christmas morning routines with you guys. Make sure you go check out Dorotas over at idorrottka.blogspost.co.uk. Hers will be slightly different too because she celebrates christmas on christmas eve! So let's get into it...
I have two children and my eldest tends to wake up every hour from about 2 o'clock so at around 5 we are finally prized from our beds! The first thing we do of course is open the presents!!! There's something so magical about seeing childrens faces filled with joy when they see all the presents and realise santa has been! After they've opened their presents my husband and I do ours.
After all the presents have been opened and we've managed to wrestle through all the wrapping paper, I like to quickly get rid of it all, then have breakfast. We normally have smoke salmon and scrambled egg. And while the children are playing happily with all the toys, it's time for the fun part, getting ready!
I start by washing my face and cleaning my teeth. I've been really loving the Biore Pore Clearing Baking Soda Wash | £4.99 | POST | This is a great light weight face wash for morning time use. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and so soft! Then I go in with my trusty La Roche Posay Ultra Toleraine Fluid | £17.50 | POST | I love, love, love this moisturiser. It's a light weight but super moisturising and keeps my dehydrated skin comfortable and hydrated all day. It also works really well under makeup.
Next up.. makeup! This year I want to go for a subtle eye and a bold lip - in the form of Jeffree Stars Velour liquid lipstick in the shade Designer Blood | £16 | POST. It's a stunning deep Red colour and the formula is so long wearing and comfortable. I do have a whole post on the makeup I plan wearing here. So be sure to check that out, there is more details and the full makeup list I'll be wearing!
At this point it's probably around 10-11ish and my husband and I just chill out for an hour with the children - playing with their new toys! Then at around 12ish we head to my dads house for Christmas dinner and to spend the rest of the day with the family!
So thats pretty much my morning routine! I hope you liked it!
