Good to be back, I’m Gulfem from All Happy Things Around again! My inspiration for this post came from article series of Harper’s Bazaar, My List: A Fashion Designer in 24 Hours. In those articles, fashion designers share their daily routines with readers in a highly detailed manner. I always am interested in finding out more about amazingly creative people, how they spend a day, how they see the world, what they enjoy most and many more, you know what I mean! This is the reason why I love these article series that much.
I love the word, routine, only if it is not used in broader sense. The first connotation of the word “routine” is what you dislike most about your lives, I know. The negative meaning of this word is extremely strong that one can not see the beauty of its more innocent sub-meanings. In broader sense, routines are what make you slave to your own life, you have to speed up for something, notably for the same thing, at the same time with same people and everything. They interfere with the joy that you take from the life.
However, my intention with this post is not to stick with broader meaning of this word but a beautiful meaning that I like..
I believe some innocent routines are the unique definers of one’s personality. They are part of you more than everything. They are citizens of the world you built. You love your coffee with just a small amount milk, no sugar, not that hot? You love reading something with the same order each time? You love taking a nap maybe? You are a slow and attentive shopper or a quick one? How do you like your salad/beef?
Do not be afraid to have routines. Just do not be slave to them, keep a reasonable distance between you and your routines, then you are safe. Talk about your routines and you will see that you will discover much about yourselves!
If I would share some of my daily routines with you…
I am true morning person, I usually wake up without the help of an alarm clock. I immediately start playing some of my favourite songs and accompany them with strange moves of course!
Also, I do love reading books at a coffee shop on my own, I can spend hours this day with noticing anything..
I am a professional daydreamer and I do that each and every day!
My daily make-up routine never changes.. A light touch of mascara, pink blush and lipstick.
So, what is your daily routine dear English Muse readers?
PS: My blog finally has a new look after the renovation, you can check it if you like, you are more than welcome! Enjoy your week!
