My Morning Routine!

Welcome back to my blog! If you’re a new reader, or just now tuning, my name is Jessica, and welcome to The Dolby Wife. If you read yesterdays post, you’ll recall that I said something about a mini series. Well, I’m here to inform you all that…. it’s not actually a mini series. Now, mini series to me means that I will be posting more than three posts. Like, how on TV they have those mini series, and they air like 6 or 8 episodes and the series is kind of over? Yeah. Not me. I’m only putting three posts, and they consist of routines. If I want to continue with this routine series, I’ll post a daily routine, a cleaning routine, a get ready with me routine, basically what all those beauty gurus do on YouTube, but instead of showing my face on camera and waste memory on a memory card, I’d rather type it out, and delete anything that I don’t want in the post. Sounds kind of mean, and hypocritical since I do want to make lifestyle videos that consist of doing those things, but I’d rather get started on here first, if that made any bit of sense to you because it sure didn’t make any sense to me! If you read todays title, you’ll know that I’m posting (or posted because you’re now reading this) my morning routine while listening to an almost 2 year old cry because she just went down for her nap. Anyway, let’s get started!

Okay, so the first thing that I do is I go on my phone and check my social media. I check on anything that I missed on Twitter, and Instagram. I’ll also check my TimeHop if it has sent me a notification telling me that I’ve done things between 2 and 5 years ago. You’re probably wondering to yourself what time I wake up. I like to attempt, repeat attempt to wake up between 8:00 AM and 8:15 AM, but let’s face it, social media can take up a good amount of that time, and plus I slide my screen on my iPhone 6, and go back to sleep. I’m not a morning person. So, after my bladder convinces me to get up out of bed, I head straight to the bathroom. Now, this post might be a little bit too TMI during this part, but I’m not the type of person that immediately brushes her teeth while doing the potty dance. I do my pottying first. I wash my hands, as you should do, and then I brush my teeth, or do my skincare, whichever I decide to do first. I brush my teeth the Oral-B Pulsar electronic toothbrush. My husband uses the same one, but we have different colors. Mine is purple, and his is white. We use the Crest Pro-Health Advanced Energizing Mint Toothpaste. I love it. This is the only toothpaste that makes my teeth and mouth feel clean. After I brush my teeth, I go right into my skin care routine. The first thing I use the Simple Micellar Water. I love this stuff. It says that it “thoroughly cleanses, removing make-up, dirt, and impurities while unclogging pores.” It does just that! When I wear make-up and use this stuff, I look down at the cotton pad, and I see the remaining make-up that my make-up wipe didn’t remove. It also gets rid of all the dirt and oil that my skin accumulated during the night while I was sleeping. The next product that I use are two eye creams. First, I use the Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On. It feels good on my eyes. Helps wake me up a little bit. Second, I use the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream. I just follow the directions on the tube. The moisturizer that I use is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with SPF 15.

So, after I do all that, this is when I would normally go into the kitchen to get some breakfast. My normal breakfast consists of either donuts, butter flavored grits (because I’m from the South, and we love our grits), breakfast from our local restaurant, or lunch food because my husband and I skip breakfast sometimes, and just eat lunch, which we instantly regret.

If we go get food, I’ll check the weather outside because Florida weather is bi-polar, and can’t make up it’s mind on if it wants to be hot or cold or in between. If it’s warm out, I’ll wear shorts with a tshirt, and my Vans. If it’s cold, I’ll wear my skinny jeans, a shirt, and my Vans.

I don’t really do my make-up, but when I do, it’s not much. I’ll make a post about during this mini series I’m doing with routines.


I’m sorry that this post is all over the place, and I don’t have any pictures of the products that I use during my morning routine.

Thanks for reading, and be sure to come back tomorrow to read all about my shower routine!
