A Day In My Life In Quarantine

Hey! Welcome or welcome back to my blog. Today I’m going to be sharing my first ever ‘day in the life’ with you all! I love reading these sorts of posts and I thought it would be a great idea for me to do one of my own. So here's what I get up to in quarantine!

Now I'm definitely not an early riser, at the start of quarantine I didn't normally wake up until around 10/10:30, but recently I've been waking up around 9/9:30 and I've found my days to be much more productive. I would normally lay in bed still for about half an hour, check my social media and reply to any comments on my Instagram and then head downstairs for some breakfast. Today's choice was my favourite cereal combo, cheerios and weetabix (trust me it works). I'll then head back upstairs and give my room a bit of a clean, putting away anything I'd left out from the night before. Sometimes this will be followed by a workout if I'm feeling up for it. This definitely doesn't happen everyday but I try and get exercise in wherever I can. Today I did a 12 minute hip workout which I've been loving doing recently!

After a bit of exercise, I'll jump in the shower and depending on the day I'll wash my hair as well. I usually wash my hair every other day as my hair can get very greasy if I don't. Once I'm out I'll begin getting ready for the day by doing my skincare and makeup routine, whilst letting my hair air dry as much as possible before blow drying it for a few minutes. By the time I'm done it's usually around 11am and so I'll then pop on my outfit for the day which will most likely be joggers and a crop top, before sitting at my desk and working on my blog. I use this time to plan/write posts, and also plan out my Instagram feed and captions, whilst replying to any dms or emails. 

At around 1:30pm I'd usually have my lunch which is never very inventive as I'm the worlds worst picky eater, but today I had a sausage omelette with some baked beans which has been my go-to lunch recently. 

After lunch, I'll always sit down with my laptop and watch a film or continue with a series I'm watching. I'm currently re-watching Once Upon A Time and I'm seriously in love with this show. The last time I watched it was in 2017 and so I've forgotten a lot of plot lines so it's like I'm watching it as a new viewer again. If you've never heard of the show, the series is a clever adaptation of traditional fairy tale characters living in our world. I 100% recommended it! 

I've been loving baking recently and so my mum and I decided to make our favourite treat, scones! The last time I made scones was year 8 food tech which thinking about it was ages ago now, but they turned out really well! 

The rest of my day really isn't at all interesting. I'll usually sit and watch some more Netflix whilst catching up with friends, or I'll go for a walk near my local park just to get some fresh air. Around 6pm I'll usually have some tea which to be honest is normally chicken and rice, followed by a banana with chocolate mousse which I can't get enough of!

My evening is usually spent browsing through Youtube. I've been loving Carrie Hope Fletcher and Oliver Ormson's 'Good Morning/Evening World' series during lockdown, they're videos are always something to look forward to! I'll always be very active on social media during this time as well as a new post will usually be up on my Instagram feed and I love taking time to reply to any comments and messages. 

My family and I have been doing weekly quizzes over zoom and tonight was quiz night! We usually pick a topic each and come up with 4 questions so there's a lot of variety. Once I lose the quiz (which happens pretty much every week I'm hopeless) around 9pm I'll do my evening skincare routine. Recently I've been using the teen skin range from Eve Taylor and it has improved my skin so much!

The rest of the evening will consist of more Once Upon A Time until I realise it's about 1 in the morning and I should probably go to bed! 

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post, it was a lot of fun to write. If you did enjoy don't forget to subscribe to my blog to be notified whenever I post! Thanks for reading, and stay safe!
