Breakfast in Bed

Waking up morning after morning to the same old routine can often get, well, tiring! Who says you can’t make waking up a lovely and enjoyable experience?

Breakfast in bed is one of my favorite ways to treat myself. Personally, the fear of dirtying the bed is silly… sheets and comforters can always be washed! It’s the feeling of relaxing in bed while eating a delicious and energizing meal that cannot be beat.

The steps are simple and easy:

1) Find a fun and functional tray. One with legs or without is just fine!

2) Make a pot of tea or coffee. That way, you can have a few cups without having to get out of bed. Pair it with cream and sugar in serving glasses.

3) A glass of orange juice or milk is not only tasty but adds color to the breakfast display!

4) Pick your main meal. Whether is it oatmeal with berries, toast with peanut butter or yogurt with nuts, make it high in protein!

5) Accompany it with real silverware/plating and a pretty napkin. Remember, this is a treat… doing the dishes is worth it.

6) Fresh cut flowers from the garden… optional, but almost a necessity!

Now, you have something to look forward to when you wake up in the morning. Give yourself a good 30 minutes to enjoy your meal, slowly wake up and get your mind ready for the day.

Once finished, it’s time to get dressed and go do some wonderful things!

Pretty Primping Station

For today’s successful lady on-the-go, there is often not enough time to spend on getting ready for the day. The last thing on your mind may be moisturizing and popping in some pearl studs, but by creating a pretty and easily accessible display of your basic primping items can help cut down on time¬†and¬†make you feel more ready for the day.

Organization and minimalism is key when picking the essentials for your everyday routine. These should be the items you cannot leave the house without using. Things such as lotion, deodorant, moisturizer, perfume, vitamins/medication, and lipgloss/stick are great examples.

After gathering these items, displaying them in an attractive and organized manner is key! The first step is finding a tray which can fit these items. Don’t pick a large tray simply to stuff everything you own onto. Select one which is small enough to encourage you to keep your items organized but large enough to hold the essentials. Stores such as Target, T.J. Maxx, and Marshalls often have a wide array of trays for affordable prices. If you pay more than $20 for a tray, you’ve paid too much… don’t be fooled, you’re a smart lady!

Once you have found your tray, arrange your items by height; large and tall items in the back with small and short items in the from. This allows you to see all of your items and not forget to use one when rushing out the door in the morning.

Additionally, I like to have a little container to hold a few pieces of jewelry. Some earrings and rings in gold and silver that are easy to slip on and go with any outfit are perfect. I find the cutest containers at thrift markets and barn sales but stores such as the ones listed above will have some as well!

Now you never have an excuse to leave the house feeling unprepared to rule the day!
