Get Ready With Me/Morning Routine





I'm generally pretty rushed in the mornings before work so I haven't bothered filming a morning routine for that even though it's closer to my regular life.  That said, it would be a 45 second video of me brushing my teeth while simultaneously looking for my keys.  On regular weekend mornings I tend to putter away my time, so there's not really a routine there unless you count watching YouTube for the first two hours of my day, falling back asleep, then contemplating venturing outside to scavenge for food.

A long weekend is an entirely different story.  I'm not sure what it is about having that one extra day to catch up on life, but on one of the three days, I realize I have all this extra time and I bother to wake up properly, make coffee, put make up on and actually dressed.  It's a magical 24-hour alternate universe where I'm both properly hydrated and never late.

Either way, I'm obsessed with these videos -- I can't really watch them unless I know I have a huge swath of time because it is just one click-hole after another.  I don't even know why they're so compelling since they get pretty repetitive after a while (people don't often deviate from wake up/brush teeth/get dressed), but here's mine added to the mix!

What are your thoughts on these random YouTube trends?  Do you love/hate morning routines?  Wait, is this a Get Ready With Me or a Morning Routine?  I don't even know.

  1. The editing on your videos is always so great! I also enjoy routine videos, but always think how boring mine would be ("now I get into my ugly pajamas, now I watch 3 hours of Millionaire Matchmaker ;)) Hope you're having a great weekend!

  2. GRWM videos are probably my favourite videos to watch. I've even rewatched some of them way too many times.
    I loved the editing of this video and pretty much all of your videos!

  4. Well, yours is the most refreshing GRWM video. I usually see the first 10 seconds and decide they're all the same. I actually finished watching yours :-P

  6. Ugh, have I mentioned how much I love the fact that your videos are so short?? (Sounds bad, but I have no attention span)
    I seriously dig that button up + sweater combo. TEMPTED TO BUY AN OXBLOOD SHIRT NOW.

    Not gonna lie, I hate those morning/night routines, but somehow end up watching them anyways IDK. My night routine pretty much consists of me being on the computer until 2am, sooooooo ain't nobody wanna see that.

    1. Ahahaha I hate long videos too (except Claire Marshall's), and my lack of daylight limits how much footage I can collect :-)

      Get the oxblood button-up. Or are we calling it marsala now?

  9. Love your video! It's refreshing to see something that's more representative of what a normal, non-professional youtuber does in the morning sans studio lights and everything. And you making looking chic seem so effortless! <3

    1. I've been thinking about studio lights, but I don't know that I'd ever put them away, I.e. my house would look like a studio set ALL the time.

    1) make me that skirt
    2) what is that lipstick.

  11. I really enjoyed this video and how you filmed it, very fun to follow along! I'm definitely a big fan of these morning routine-ish videos as well; I'm so nosy when it comes to what other people are up to :)
