My Fall Morning Routine // Blogtober Day #9

Hey everyone!

It’s kind of strange that I am posting a morning routine on here since all my posts go up at 9pm eastern time but why not? I thought I would share with you guys my morning routine for fall time. I usually go to school every morning during the week except Friday. On Friday’s I do all my blog stuff. I leave one day to write posts, make my social media content, record videos. Everything I have to do to make sure this blog is a well-functioning machine. I thought it would be cool to share with you guys my morning routine on my “work days” rather than on a school day. Two reasons for this, it’s more interesting and I really don’t do anything on school mornings, I throw myself together and look like garbage every day at school.

Let’s jump right into it. I always start my morning with waking up way latter than I should. I get up around 10-11. It really depends on the day and I don’t super force myself to stay on a schedule. I let myself have that one day to sleep in. I have to be up early during the week for school and early for work on the weekends. So, I slowly get up and check my phone. I usually have some notifications, so I check out what’s happening for a few minutes. Once I’m awake a drink a glass of cold water. I find this wakes me up more than any coffee would.

As I’m drinking my water I go over everything that I want to get done today. I have mental list most times, but I take this time to write it down, so I can visually see what needs to happen. After the list is done I get on it. I start with breakfast/early lunch. Sometimes I eat breakfast food, sometimes I don’t. It depends on what is in the fridge and how much effort I want to put into making it. I also make myself a tea. I don’t drink tea for the caffeine but more because I like how warm it is and since it’s getting cold out I need something to warm me up in the morning.

As I’m eating I double check my to-do list and the weather. If there’s things I’m planning on doing outside I look to see if the weather will permit it. Sometimes I film outside or need to take pictures. If it’s pouring rain I have to move those things to next week or hope that the weather will clear up for enough time for me to get it done.

After eating I put on some YouTube to catch up on my fellow YouTubers and open up my computer. Again, I go back and forth between my desk and my bed. I find I’m more productive if I sit at my desk. If I’m on my bed I get distracted a lot with computer games or social media. I guess when I sit at my desk in work mode.

I spend the day writing blog posts, making social media content and editing videos. I also set up and film videos or take pictures for blog posts. I typically do this for the rest of the day.

This is my morning routine. I hope you guys enjoy it. I’m a slow morning person and I don’t wake up at the crack of dawn like most bloggers or YouTubers. I also don’t get ready, like put on makeup unless I have to film or take pictures. I also shower at night. I do brush my teeth though and go to the bathroom, but I didn’t think that would be all that interesting.

What do you guys do in the morning? Do you guys prefer to be up early or late? I would love to know what your morning routines look like so let me know.

I will see you guys tomorrow.

Bath and Body Works Haul / Fall 2018 // Blogtober Day #3

Hey everyone!

I’ve done it again…ought way too much Bath and Body Works! I know, I know it’s a problem. I promise that this is not sponsored. It would be fantastic if they wanted to sponsor me with how much I buy their products but alas no luck. Since fall as rolled around, I needed to get my hands on their new stuff. I had over 2000$ of their stuff in my cart online. I decided to go in-store and check it out in person. I’m a bit picky when it comes to scents during this time because I hate vanilla! Vanilla always seems to be a fall scent that is overused. I hate vanilla so much I think I have a trauma associated with it or something.

Unfourtantly, I was a bit disappointed in the selection at my local Bath and Body Works. They didn’t have everything on the website. Also, most of the scents were vanilla based, yuck! It didn’t help I had a bad cold and couldn’t smell very well. The employees, though I know it’s their job, but they were extremely pushy. I hate more than anything in the world when employees try to put products on you. I don’t want it! I have sensitive skin. Though I never get reactions from their products I’d rather be the one that makes the decision on what goes on my skin. It’s as if they have no concept of allergies.

Anyways, enough with that and on to the haul. I only picked up 5 things and it cost me like 80$! I got the whole pumpkin picking collection so the cream, shower gel and perfume. I also got the pumpkin enzyme gel moisturizer and the thousand years candle.

The pumpkin picking collection smells so good. It was the only one that smelt the least of vanilla or something I already had. I really wanted something that smelt of pumpkin. I love pumpkin and feel it is super fall. I believe I’ve mentioned this before in my Zoella Beauty 2018 Christmas Collection video, I associate different scents for different seasons. This collection is perfect for the fall time.

The pumpkin enzyme gel moisturizer is the best thing I’ve ever put on my skin. It just feels so good and makes my skin feel so soft. It’s even better than their usual creams. It kinda has a weird look to it that makes you think it’s not a lotion but it is. At first, I was scared it would be sticky because it looks exactly like caramel. It seeps right into the skin hydrating immediately. A lot of people say that it smells of sweet pumpkin but I feel like it smells more of apples and pumpkins.

I own the thousand years perfume and I have adored it for a very long time. It used to be my go to before I got Rose, which has been mentioned in like 5 monthly favourites. When my boyfriend picked up the candle and said he liked it, I knew I had to get it. It smells incredible and just warms up the whole room. I hope that the candle stays around because it is quickly becoming one of my favourites.

So this was my haul. Have you guys picked up any of the new Bath and Body Works products? If so which ones are your favourite? If not did you want to check them out? Let me know, I would love to hear from you guys.

My Monthly Loves / September 2018 // Blogtober Day #2

Hey everyone!

It’s already the beginning of October. I can’t believe it. It feels like the month flew by. Since it’s the end of the month, everyone knows what time it is. The flood of monthly favourites are coming out. I have to admit I don’t have many favourites this month. I have been sick a lot and not really doing anything it seems like. Does anyone else get that way? If you’re not feeling well you kind of just don’t really do anything with your life? You just watch Netflix or YouTube all day? Just me?

I don’t have a lot of physical things this month I realized as I was prepping this post. I also only have 4 things to share with you guys. Sorry 😦

1.Bob’s Burgers

I’m pretty sure last month I talked about Archer. This month I am coming back with another adult cartoon. I have had a thing lately with adult cartoons. Bob’s Burgers is just easy to put on while I’m doing something else or just trying to fall asleep. I don’t know what I like so much about it but it just keeps me entertained. I’ve already watched 3 seasons. I find the characters relatable and funny. There’s something about it that reminds me of exaggerated versions of people I know. I recommend it if you’re into adult cartoon humour.

2. Fall Candles

I bought these so early in September. I got them from Winners for 3,99$ each. They got me so excited for fall. I’ve been burning them so much not only for how good they smell but also the atmosphere they give off. Both my boyfriend and I like the lighting candles give during the evening in our room. Also, our place traps smells so badly and I hate Febreze. I feel like it’s too strong and I have a hard time breathing when it’s sprayed. So candles help a lot. Winners is a fantastic place to get seasonal candles. I will be picking up more soon.

3. Tati Westbrook

So I started watching Tati on YouTube this month. I think I just binge watch people for a month straight. I’ve done it with so many channels. For someone who is horrendous at makeup, I love to watch beauty gurus. I was also looking for new people to watch because I was over the drama that surrounds the beauty community. I found Tati and loved how drama free she is. I also love that she’s not about promo codes. She uses a lot of affordable makeup. Honestly, she is a breath of fresh air.

4. Tumblr

I am back on Tumblr! I have a Tumblr dedicated to fitness. Since my post about feeling a bit insecure about my physical appearance, you can read that post here, I decided to try and create more healthy changes in my life. I use my Tumblr to motivate myself.  I get food and workout ideas. I also love the community. You just have to be careful with the eating disorder triggering things on Tumblr. There is an awesome healthy community though if you’re just looking for that push. You can follow me at the-nerd-girl-health.tumblr.com.

So that is what I’ve been loving. What have you guys been loving? Have you guys ever liked anything I’ve mentioned in this post? I would love to know!

What am I even doing this year??

IMG_5024

So as everyone who read my blog post about graduation knows, I’ve finally finished my high school. (A hundred years later, I know) But what am I doing from here on out?

Well it’s not exactly that simple. I had previously gone to college before finishing my high school. What were they thinking letting me in?? I failed out because it was in French and well we all know that story.

Since I failed out of college it’s been very hard to get into an English one. My high school grades are great but my college ones suck. I’m sure you guessed it, college grades are more important.

So what am I doing this year? I decided to do two things. The first being applying to a school out of my province. (There’s like only 3 English colleges close to my home, making getting in very difficult to get in because of the lack of options for Anglophones.) The second being applying to nigh school. I will be doing college credit courses till I get an answer from Algonquin. The night school starts earlier here than Algonquin starts. The credited courses will help improve my college grades in general making it easier to get into a college close to me.

The ultimate goal is to be back in college in a communications program by Winter 2018. I will admit jumping through hoops for so long has been very frustrating. All I want to do is learn and the system is making it close to impossible. I do know that everything happens for a reason. What I go through is to bring me to a bigger and better purpose in life.
