ITEMS IN THIS POST HAVE BEEN KINDLY GIFTED.
I've always been a morning person, ever since I can remember. I've always felt the most productive when I wake up around 6-7 and start my day productively. I always start my day with getting up straight away and making my bed, this sets off the day as already being productive and also stops you from getting into bed after because you've just took the time to make it, so why ruin it? (that's how my brain works anyway!). Mornings to me are my favourite part of the day which some people would find crazy to hear, I know a lot of people who don't wake up till after midday (which there is obviously nothing wrong with that but this is just a post for people that would like to start waking up a little earlier) and sometimes, I wish I could do that but I'm just not that person and I've kinda accepted that now and I'm actually so happy with how that has worked out for me.

Breakfast is key to a successful day and I know a lot of people don't like eating before a particular time, I would say to eat something - even if it's a few biscuits with your morning tea, it's something. Skipping breakfasts does nothing for me personally, I always plan my day around when I'm going to eat which sounds crazy, I know but it helps me - for example, after getting up out of bed and brushing my teeth, I always go downstairs and have some breakfast and this is normally a bacon bap or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon whilst watching some Youtube videos and this sets me up for the day as I'm where I'm going to be working and I've had something to eat to help me concentrate, because who wants to be doing work whilst they're hungry? Plus may I just add, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I really feel like it sets you up for a day of tasks and it gives you the energy to be able to do them. I may do a little post very soon for those of you that struggle with what to have for breakfast with a quick and easy ideas for you!
After eating breakfast, I always get ready for the day. Pyjamas are the best thing in the world, but not when you want to feel productive because you're too relaxed (especially if you work from home regularly) so I always think it is best to get ready as if you would be going to work, this prevents you from feeling like you want to sit and slouch and do nothing. If you don't work from home and you're just looking to be a bit more productive then you should definitely still follow these steps - make plans with friends, family, tidy your house/room or find little things to sort out, such as the bedside cabinet that you've been scared to look at for months (trust me, we've all been there - you're not alone!).

My morning routine is very chilled and relaxed, obviously depending on what I'm doing in the day but I always set my day off to be as I'd like them to be... productive and busy. I know this may sound crazy to people and this won't work for everyone but this is just my personal routine and the order I do things works for me but you will find your own little way of doing things but getting up and booking your day with little things makes a hell of a difference to your mind and I would recommend everyone to do this, whatever your job or whatever you decide to do during your days!
And finally, I always finish off getting ready for the day by applying some skincare, I try and make sure this isn't something too heavy and something that is just going to help me keep my skin hydrated throughout the day, I've recently been using the Nivea Light Moisturizing Day Cream with SPF and this has done exactly the job - it's very light on my skin and keeps the dry patches on my face making a reappearance!

As this time of year rolls around again, I thought I would put together a new list of great gift ideas for your Father or whoever you look up to in your life. I contemplated not doing one this year as I've done once every year but I've decided to because I can see how many of you that it helped when I did the one for Mother's Day back in March and honestly, I think it's really hard to keep thinking about new original presents for people so I'm hoping this post will give you some amazing gifts or some great inspiration!

Fragrance: In my eyes, you can never go wrong with a good fragrance, does your dad have a particular favourite? if not, why not try Sauvage by Dior or Y by YSL (two of my faves at the moment!)? Boots have some amazing gift sets including David Beckham and Diesel!

Food/Drink: If your Dad is anything like mine, a good beer set would go down a treat! I've always been really impressed with the hampers that Selfridges offer each year, there is literally a hamper for everyone. If you're looking for a good selection for your money then definitely head over to their website! Alternatively, put one together yourself (this would be really fun too!) I think it would be such a nice idea to load a picnic basket up with your Dad's favorite snacks

Personalisation: Anything personalised just makes everything look as if so much effort has been put into a gift, I rave about NotOnTheHighStreet all the time but it is honestly the best place for little quirky and personalized gifts! Weather your dad is a sports fan, a music fan or a golf fan - there is something for everyone and you can personalise pretty much anything on their website which I think is such a cute idea.

Grooming: I always think a practical gift is the right alley to go down, has your Dad got a favorite moisturizer, shaving gel or face wash? Clinique do really nice luxury sets that aren't too pricey and I think it's such a nice gift to get your Dad. Clinique is such a nice luxury brand that goes that extra mile to make sure all their products have the best ingredients and I honestly rate them so much for that - Clinique would make the perfect gift.

A Trip Away: Has your Dad wanted to visit a particular place? I use Booking.com all the time when I'm planning a trip away, especially city breaks as they offer really good discounts on hotels in different cities for such a good price! If you're looking to take your Dad away then I would definitely check them out. Also, if you're not familiar with Accor Hotels which cover iBis, Novotel, Sofitel and many more, they have a membership system where you can earn points whenever you stay in one of the Accor Hotels and they add up to earn you a free stay at one of their hotels, I think this is amazing!

I am obsessed with home-ware and interiors and I have been for as long as I remember. I always used to want to change my room around, change the theme and get new ornaments to display around my room and my love for this has never dissipated, in fact it's definitely excelled... I dream about the day that I finally purchase my first house and I'm able to decorate it however I want to. I've done a little post similar to these sometime last year but I wanted to give you a little update as I've been been really loving making my room very cosy, especially at night where I can dim my lights and put on my fairy lights with a cup of tea.
