As many of my recurrent readers know, I’m a teacher so I have my basic after school routine. I remember being in high school and getting home, grabbing a snack (gushers, ice cream sundae, peanut butter and fluff sandwich, etc…), taking out homework, showering and going to bed. Things have changed a little now that I’m an adult and no longer can rely on such incredible metabolism.
Now it’s important for me to actually have a refreshing and productive routine that works for me so I don’t end up wasting my nights after I get home from work. I’d like to show you some of the items I use to have a productive school night.
1. Mario Badescu facial spray with aloe, cucumber, and green tea
I work with children and let’s just say I don’t exactly feel the cleanest when I get out of work. In fact I usually feel pretty disgusting. This facial spray is just the breath of fresh air I need after a long day, it smells amazing and revitalizes me enough to get some work done!
2. Smith’s Rosebud Salve Balm
My favorite moisturizing lip balm! This stuff is gold, it moisturizes your lips without the greasy feel of Vaseline and it doesn’t leave that waxy aftertaste that most chapsticks do. Did I mention it smells like rose buds?
3. Salt lamp
I really rely on my salt lamp these days to decompress. It’s gives my room a soothing glow that really allows me to relax and feel better about the challenges of my day
4. Smoothie Star Lightly Whipped Body Buttercream
After years of stealing scoops from my friend she finally got me my own jar of this magical lotion and I am obsessed. It smells like the most delicious cupcake you’ve ever tasted and it really glides over your skin leaving you feeling soft and silky and fresh!
5. Anthropology agenda
Being type B has its challenges. I wouldn’t have my head on straight if it weren’t for my planner! I literally have 2, one for social events and one for work. Seriously, being type B isn’t for the faint of heart.
6. Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes
I just got eyelash extensions on and these are a life saver. They’re oil free, smell great, and are a great companion for the facial spray!
Here’s a glimpse into my after school routine – I forgot to mention the 5 hours of watching The Office if I decide to blow off my responsibilities for the week (most likely) !
