Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing fine. So this post is a little different than my regular posts. I recently came across a lovely blogger from Italy and we decided to do a collab together sharing a sneak peek of our daily routines. Claudia is a young and talented blogger who writes about her life in Italy as well as shares Vegan recipes. Her blog is like a breath of fresh air and I have fallen in love with it!! So here is our first collaborative attempt where I’m sharing my morning routine on weekends –
Weekends… that’s the time for relaxing and unwinding for everyone. Call me lazy but I’m not that type of a person who will wake up at 6 am on a Saturday and go running. I mean even if I wake up early… I just like to laze around in the bed for some time. Besides, it is getting chillier here and cold weather and snuggling up in bed go hand in hand, right?
Once I get up, I generally have coffee but since I love tea too… it really depends on my mood. So, last Saturday, I made a hot, steaming cup of coffee with a Healthy Avocado toast for breakfast. I just sprinkled a little bit of salt and pepper on it. It makes for a wholesome breakfast. Seriously, if you haven’t tried it… what are you waiting for?? I also had an apple along with it. 🍎
While sipping coffee, I usually catch up on blog posts from around the world, as well as check my Instagram & Twitter feed.
Okay so here’s the thing – on weekends when we decide to head out… we generally have an early lunch and then leave. That way, if we are out for a long time, we don’t end up eating both lunch as well as dinner out (unless that’s the plan😉) So after a hot shower, I made some grilled chicken for lunch. I generally like to make quick, fuss-free meals since it requires less time for prepping and easy clean-up after the meal. ❤️ ❤️ I followed it with one of my favorite yogurts – Yoplait in peach flavor.
After lunch, it was time for me to get ready and head out with the hubby to do a little shopping (kidding, who does a ‘little’ shopping?😉) I generally reach out for drugstore makeup when I’m not heading anywhere fancy. A little dab of foundation, a little concealer and a pop of color on the lips is my basic go-to makeup. Except a little mascara, I suck at doing eye make-up even to save my life… so yeah.. that is crossed off from the list 😀 I am always experimenting and these are my current go-to drugstore make-up products –
Oh yes, and before heading out, I always make sure to carry a bottle of water with me. Yeah, call me frugal but I don’t want to shell out money at the mall for double the price for a bottle of water.
So that was my typical morning routine on lazy weekends. What do you guys do on weekends? Do you follow a set routine? I would love to hear from you! And yes, don’t forget to show some love to Claudia aka ‘Division Claudia’ by heading onto her blog and checking out her post! Thanks a lot Claudia for doing this collab with me!
Until next time, have a lovely week and keep on smiling!
