Roses Green Silk Gown Bonsoir of London
Swipe the alarm off your bedside table, retrieve the sock that somehow ended up in the middle of your bedroom and stumble downstairs to eat cereal from the box.  No, no and nope.  Not on my watch!  All of this gorgeous weather (besides the latest bout of thunder and lightning) has got me thinking about ways to improve our morning routines.  We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and so surely the first hour or two after waking up must to some extent dictate the general direction of our mood for the day as well, right?  I've lost count of the amount of emails listing 'morning habits of successful people' that have landed in my inbox, most of which include waking up really early, getting your hardest task done first and immediately planning out the day ahead.  But assuming you've already got a pretty good grip on your morning routine as far as motivation and ambition goes, now it's time to look at those pretty little details.  You know, the things that put a smile on your face from the moment you wake up and make you feel hashtag-blessed...

Y U M  ,  Y U M !

First things first, it's time to ditch the old breakfast bowls.  I don't know why it took me so long to consider upgrading the usual suspects to gold-rimmed glass bowls.  The whole experience is so much more luxurious and goes a very long way in making a healthy breakfast seem more appetising 


W H A T   W A S   T H A T ?

Enough with the barking dogs and mediocre morning radio, put together a feel-good playlist (or update the one you already have) to ensure those vital first few minutes of the day are filled with good vibes - release that dopamine!

Steady on, ladies and gents.  We're talking about silk!  I've spoken before about my love for luxurious nightwear (in particular Bonsoir of London's classic designs) and it's about to get even more intense because I'm completely smitten with another full-length silk gown.  Swoon.  Bonsoir of London's latest collection includes this luxurious, handmade Silk Gown in a detailed Roses print - bonus points if you pair it with the matching eye mask!  Other fabulous options that are ideal for enhancing your morning routine, include waking up in matching silk cami and short sets and silk chemises, or skipping the silk altogether and opting for a cashmere robe to wrap up in after you've rolled out of bed

Ah, skincare routines.  The bane of our existence.  No, I'm exaggerating, it's actually pretty fun picking out your lotions and potions for the day, right?!  Early last year I made the mistake of not using my most expensive, hard-working products everyday because of how much they cost to replace each month.  The end result?  They didn't get used.  After you've showered, reach for the most effective, gorgeous products in your skincare collection and enjoy them from the moment you wake up!  Oh, and while we're on the topic, does anyone else love hair mist?  To avoid working my way through bottles and bottles of my fave scent, I opt for Coco Mademoiselle Fresh Hair Mist instead for the mornings.  Two sprays into my locks before heading out the door and I'm feeling like Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel herself...

That's right, and you're also not in that same old chair you move towards every morning.  Break with tradition and look for a prettier part of your surroundings in which to enjoy breakfast.  Perhaps a seat with a view of your surrounding cityscape, or lush garden.  Maybe up on a window seat, nestled into a plush armchair, or on that pretty decorative chair you've pushed to the corner of the room.  Or perhaps even back in bed with a magazine for company!
