How to #WinTheDay {5 Easy Steps}

How do you start your day? What do you do to make it a good one? Is it more than just getting up on the right side of the bed? Today I am going to share a few tips on how I make my mornings smooth and easy, and my days a success!  

Waking up early is the key for me. Even if you don’t have to be anywhere early, it’s still a good habit. Okay maybe on the weekends I’ll sleep in till 9 am, but on other days 5.45 am it is!

Planning my outfit is also helpful, and whether I lay it out the night before, or put it together in the morning, I always try to have a general idea of what I am going to wear!

Highlight it, don’t hide it! Got killer cheekbones, put some highlighter on! Want to open up your eye and appear more wide awake? Highlight it! 

Know your hair! Will you wear it straight, or curly, or in a bun? How do you style your hair? Often it’s something I forget about, and then end up not having enough time to do. Yes, my hair is relatively short compared to what it used to be, but it still takes me about 10-15 minutes to style it! 




Stick to your skincare routine. Clearasil has recently come out with a new skincare line, and I got an opportunity to test it out and share my thoughts with you. The opportunity was brought to me by Clearasil and Refinery 29, and I hope you will find it helpful.


I have always had acne, from black heads to cystic, to everything in between, it seems like I was always dealing with something new on my face. Oh and acne scars, can’t forget about those. Did I also mention I am in my 20’s, and I am not even in my early 20’s? I used to use Clearasil back in the day, and I was excited to go back to it, especially to the new Cranberry/Raspberry super fruit formula! Because flawless skin is what gives me confidence throughout the day. 

And what’s even better is you get to try Clearasil product for free with this amazing mail in rebate offer! So hurry, don’t let your skin imperfections stop you from becoming successful.

  1. These are great tips! I always plan out my outfit the night before, otherwise I think I would just be staring at my closet for a decent chunk of the morning, and then be late to work too haha

      Haha I do that sometimes, other times I have a pile of “this weeks clothes” that I recycle from, if that makes sense!

  2. Waking up early is a MUST for me, otherwise the day feels like a waste.

    I couldn’t agree more! Ever since I’ve been trying to wear makeup everyday to work, I get up extra early so I can have fun getting ready and not feel rushed. And I’ve ALWAYS planned out my outfit the night before. I also get my lunch and breakfast ready the night before (I’m a bit anal) LOL! Great tips! 🙂

      Thank you Ashly! I am going to start making my own lunch now too! You should’ve seen me at Costco today 🙂
