I really dig this whole summer/winter time thing. The additional hour of daylight in the morning is everything I wished for these past weeks. Now, that I finally am back to a normal sleeping schedule, it’s so comforting to wake up to the rising sun. And because I’ve really been embracing these lovely mornings lately, I thought I’d share my autumn/winter morning essentials with you today.
My Morning Essentials for Autumn & Winter
I guess my coffee addiction isn’t exactly a secret anymore. I’ve been drinking multiple cups a day lately. But the most important one for me will always be the first one right after waking up. This morning coffee is more than just my breakfast substitute. It’s genuine me-time. This first hour of the day. Spent with no-one but me and my coffee. Sitting on the kitchen counter, watching the sun rise and the cars zoom by while enjoying the comforting warmth of my cappuccino.
Another crucial morning essential is my journal/planner. It’s where I write down my to-do list for the day. I check my schedule and see what’s on the agenda for the day. Also, as it has quite some blank pages in the end, I use it to write down thoughts, rambles and blog post ideas. Currently, I am using this gorgeous one from Odernichtoderdoch‘s “JoandJudy” range and I’m OBSESSED! Sadly they don’t have that one anymore – but they have a great range to choose one nevertheless.
Also, how could I not mention my best friend and dear companion: my iPhone! Writing this is incredibly pathetic, but so true. The first thing I usually do in the morning after turning off my alarm clock is checking my social media feeds. Definitely need to work on my phone-addiction, though!
By the way, remember my new bedroom? Well, there’s yet another new addition to it and it’s these gorgeous new bedside tables*, which I designed myself at mycs.com. The ones we had absolutely didn’t fit the new bedroom and we knew we’d have to invest in new ones sooner or later anyways. So when the opportunity came up to design myself some cool new tables for the flat I ,of course, had to get new bedside tables. These are classic white on top (perfect for Insta-shots) and have grey legs to compliment the new bed.
They also have the opportunity to design your own bookshelf – so that’s definitely on my agenda for next year. Definitely need a new one and what’s better than designing your own one?
