How to keep up with your Routine on Vacation

How to keep up with your Routine on Vacation

I have a confession to make. I have not been keeping up with my routines on vacation. When I am at school, routines are so much easier. I know where everything is in my apartment and I know my schedule and when stuff needs to happen. Here at the island house (read my post about that here) my routine has been all screwed up.

How to be Confident without Makeup

How to be confident without makeup

Now I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m confident without makeup (or with makeup), but I’m working on it. I don’t wear makeup often. Occasionally, I decide that I want to put on lipstick or fill in my brows, but it is very occasional. And yet, 4 years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead without makeup.

I always seem to get a big burst of productivity and create a routine that I’m proud of, saying ‘I will start this perfect routine tomorrow’, and when tomorrow comes, all my motivation is gone and I struggle to attend to the basics – getting clothes on and eating breakfast – before meandering out the door (with smudged glasses, might I add).
