7 A.M. When I first wake up, I grab my phone and usually already have emails and texts from New York. I look and respond to anything urgent.
8 A.M. After I see anything I have to respond to, I scroll through Instagram to see anything I missed while I was asleep and check our direct messages on the Summer Fridays account since a lot of people share that they mask before bed or when they wake up.
8:30 A.M. I make my morning smoothie and coffee. I only use recipes approved by my nutritionist, Kelly Leveque. Her book Body Love has so many low sugar, high protein recipes with healthy fats that keep me full till lunch. I make myself an iced almond milk latte then get ready.
8:45 A.M. I shower at night, so in the morning my hair is dry and ready to go. I do my morning skincare routine, which is pretty simple. I cleanse with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex, use a Vitamin C serum then follow up with Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask and Control Correctives SPF. I always wear sunscreen, no matter where I am in the world.
9 A.M. After I do my morning skincare routine, I’ll do my makeup . I keep my makeup routine fairly simple during the day. I use a BB cream or a lightweight foundation. My current favorites are Armani Beauty Face Fabric and Perricone No Foundation Foundation.
9:30 A.M. I try to always post content to Instagram first thing in the morning, so I’ll take a look through planoly, an app I use to plan my feed, and decide which post goes up that day. I share an image to Instagram then reply to any immediate comments I get.
10 A.M. I publish my first blog post of the day. We share a new post on Life With Me every day, Monday to Friday then I’ll head to the office to work on Summer Fridays for the rest of the day.
