Will you love me in the morning, when its far too early

Every morning I travel 1.5 hours to my job in Manhattan (edit:if I drop dead blame the commute), but I love to sleep in. Most mornings I can get ready for work in about an hour which keeps me and my snooze button very well acquainted. Unfortunately I get easily distracted by checking emails or reading the NYTimes online once I'm up which can be hard to avoid...
It takes a bit of motivation (but not a lot) to do some yoga from YouTube in the morning. These might just trick you into being in a good mood, but they seem to work for me. Everyday I do one or two yoga videos.
I pick out my clothes at night usually but if it has to be done in the morning I like to keep it simple. During the winter its really difficult because I've got to think in layers, but now its a breeze to pick a dress out of my closet and pair it with a light sweater.Showering at night gives me a lot more time in the morning, and then I let my hair air dry at night then fix it with the blowdryer in the morning. After that I put on my makeup and then I'm off to the train!

  1. Aw this is such a cute post. I love seeing what other bloggers' rooms look like. It's so much fun. I'm currently in the process of dramatically decorating my room because I just recently moved. I'll definitely post pictures when it's all done. Also, I can't stay away from the computer in the morning. I wake up DETERMINED to just get ready and go but always end up checking blogger, facebook, twitter, etc until I end up having like 2 seconds to get ready hah. It's a sickness.

  9. I love how you have your handbags in your closet...so organized! Props to you for making such a long commute every day. I used to lay out my clothes, but I find that I never want to wear what I laid out the next day!

  10. Wow, an hour and a half is a really long commute! I like seeing how people organise their wardrobes, the way you store your bags is a really clever idea!

  11. This is a fun, casual post. So brave of you to put in your wardrobe. Mine is such a mess! Usually I just read books on my iPod on the way to school, I wish I could sleep in as well!

  12. I'm a night showerer as well - I need more time in the mornings! And I also do a quick 20 minute work out most mornings to wake me up.

  13. I find people's get ready routines fascinating! Haha. I can't believe your commute is that long! I don't know what I'd do. I guess it's not so bad since you're not driving. If I had to drive 1.5 hours to work I'd die.

  16. I am totally guilty of hitting the snooze and trying to calculate just how little time it can take me to get ready in the morning. I totally need to try doing some of that good mood morning yoga!

  17. um OH MY GOSH YOUR COMMUTE IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE. I drive twenty minutes to school. That's long for me! Hahah. Mad respect!

    And I loved reading your morning routine! I was recently talking about this with my friends, haha.

  19. As a 1h commuter I see you, but 1h30 would be insane especially since my work mornings are supposed to start at 7h30 so that's why I'm trying to move to somewhere closer. But the night shower is one of my strategies too! And I stay in be as late as I can ;)

  20. This is such an adorable post! I love to know what other bloggers routines are! I'd love to be able of showering at night but if I did that but hair in the morning would be all weird. Plus, showering in the morning helps me waking up :)

  22. I used to commute 45 minutes from Brooklyn and I thought that was rough. I too take a shower at night and pick my clothes out the night before. It makes the mornings run much more smoothly. Hope your Saturday is going well!

  24. Loved reading about your morning routine! =) Also, a 1.5 hour commute is so brutal- I don't know how you do it!
