If there is one word that I want to describe my perfect day/night – it’s cozy. I love nothing more than to be as cozy as I possibly can.
For the rest of Canada, they seem to still be deep into summer but here in the mountains, it’s fall. Let me tell you, I am happy about that. I have no shame in saying that I am a basic bitch and I LOVE fall. I wear that title with pride, thank you very much.
I take these chilly fall days as time to focus on my creative goals (like working on this blog post), catching up on some chores, or just relaxing for a bit. Keep reading for a day in my life, living my best fall life.
I try to keep to a fairly regular schedule as I get up very early in the morning for the week (my alarm typically goes off around 5:30am). So while I let myself sleep in on my days off, I try to get up at a decent time. Now, if I couldn’t sleep the night before, I really sleep in as much as I need.
8:30-9:00am. I like starting the day with a coffee and a decent breakfast. I don’t normally like anything heavy but some eggs, toast, and some tomatoes or an avocado is everything that I need to feel amazing.
9:00-11:00am. If I have some cleaning or chores to do, I like doing it right away. I have more motivation in the morning so I’d much rather get up and clean or put on laundry first thing. Personally, I don’t like waiting until later in the day to do this stuff. It sits on my mind and it becomes the only thing that I think about so if I’ve got a load of laundry to do or my room is a mess and I’m laying in bed, watching TV…I’m tense. So I get up, I have coffee, and I get this shit done.
11:00-2:00pm. Once that is done, I try to work on something that makes me feel fulfilled creatively. I work on a blog post, or I work on plans for a blog post…something that makes me feel like I’m working towards my goals. I work full time during the week and it’s exhausting this time of year but on my days off, I try to cut out some time to work on my blog. Which is exactly what I’m doing right now!
2:00-3:30pm. At that point, I might take a break to make some lunch or maybe try some fall baking. I love making soups and I like to experiment and try making new kinds of soup. A good thing about making a big pot of soup on my day off is that it sets me up for the week ahead and I’ve got lunches!
3:30-4:00pm. In the late afternoon, I like to take a bath or shower. I’ll do a hair mask and take my time, shave my legs…all of that exciting stuff. I am the type of person to shower in the evening or night. I feel like I sleep so much better after a shower.
4:00-6:00pm. Once I’m done that, I move onto skin care and hair care. I make sure that my curls are taken care of the second that I get out of the shower then I bundle up in my pyjamas and a robe and I focus on my skin. I’ll do a face mask then go through my entire skin care routine (I have mentioned this in a previous post and will likely mention it again – it’s also in my instagram in my highlights: LINK) and then I might paint my nails.
6:00-7:00pm. I’ll try to make sure that I have a decent meal. Something good for dinner. I’ve been enjoying a salad of lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, feta cheese, sunflower seeds, and just an oil and vinegar dressing.
7:00-11:30pm. Once my skin is taken care of and I am cozy and comfortable, I’ll make sure that my bed is set up and ready to go. I’ll make a cup of tea and I’ll get everything I need then crawl into my bed. I’m watching Supernatural at the moment so I’ll snuggle in and put my show on and end the night with some solid relaxing.
