There is no doubt that mornings can be really stressful when you have to get ready quickly, go to work or run errands, only to find you starting with a bad mood, overwhelmed by the amount of things that have to be done in a certain time. This is why it’s important to create a morning routine that will help you get ready for the day with positivity and energy to conquer the world! Even if you have to get up earlier, it’s totally worth it; this is how you gain confidence and feel empowered to succeed in a demanding day!
Prepare your favourite tea
Having a cup of tea has become a ritual for me. This is how I always start my day or I choose to draw a calming end in a hectic week. Green tea is my top choice at the moment, due to its skin properties, but of course I like to switch it up from time to time! This Tea Gift Set* gives me the chance to choose between English Breakfast, English Afternoon or Earl Grey tea, all stored in beautiful floral tins that I'll definitely re-use when I go through them! Also a personalised mug comes along with the tea set!!!
Choose your comforting cup
When relaxing, I tend to choose the cup that makes me feel happy inside. My favourites at the moment are the Peter Rabbit Classic and the Peter Rabbit Contemporary* featuring Beatrix Potter's well known design that always takes me back to my childhood when I had similar plates and books with Peter Rabbit... memories! They are great for tea parties too, as you can personalise them to match each guest's name!
Lists, ideas, your thoughts… Instead of feeling inadequate to dive into a crazy day, it’s really useful to start writing down all the things you have to do. Not only big tasks but also easier ones in between them, so whenever you tick one off, you feel content and ready to move on! Lists shouldn’t be intimidating but useful tools to get you through your goals! Also, it’s nice to carry a notebook around to write down any spontaneous ideas, inspiration or even draw to relax and unwind. These personalised pencils* along with a matching pencil box in baby pink, embossed with 'Cups & Roses', excite me so much that I want to use them all the time, share them and keep this box on my desk as decoration too!
