Banana Raspberry Smoothie Recipe | How I Start My Day

Sharing is caring!

How I Start My Day

My alarm goes off between 5.45 and 6:00 a.m. and sometimes I have this really bad habit of checking notifications on my phone first thing as I open my eyes.  After doing so I would say my prayer and spend some time in meditation, make my bed and brush my teeth. Then I would take a shower, comb my hair, put on makeup and dress for work.

Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, before leaving the house for work, I enjoy a glass of my favourite banana raspberry smoothie. Although not practical every day, I try my best.

What I Would Like To Do Differently

Before I started my work career I used to get up at 5 every morning and workout for an hour with Denise Austin. That used to be the best part of my day. Now it is a lot easier to exercise on afternoons after work. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to fit in an exercise routine then having to work until 5:00 p.m. just does not work for me.

Two of my favourite quotes:

“The secret to success lies in how you start your day.” – Jasmin Waldmann, International Life Coach

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”Marcus Aurelius

I particularly like this quote from Marcus Aurelius simply because I see life as a gift from God. Everyday I am grateful for being alive, having good health and strength. For having the best mother in the world and to be able to see and hear are just some of the things I am thankful for.

  • Trying out these Reusable Medical Grade Silicone Patches from @siobeauty in hope that they get rid of these fine lines “wrinkles” from my face ☺️ I’ve got the Eye & Smile Lift as well as the Browlift. Best part is that each patch is reusable up to 15 times 😁

  • So happy to have received @coverfx Power Play Foundation in the shade N100 and their Perfect Setting Powder complimentary @influenster. I used these products on my face and I was in awe at how beautiful it looked and lasted. My face remained matte just like I like it, even after sweating profusely 😅 it’s light-weight, full-coverage, long lasting and a little bit of product goes a long way! Can’t wait to post the review on my blog 😁 #soon Beautiful product and there are 40 shades to choose from! Slide left to see the results .

  • So I’ve been using the Dark Garden Collection from @aloette for the past few days now and I’m thrilled. 😁 Of course they are all aloe vera infused with a very mild fragrance. .

I love to use the Body Incense Dry Hand & Body Lotion all over my body after showering especially on evenings after a long day of work.  It’s not as heavy as a lotion but gives that smooth feeling that somehow disappears into the skin  but giving it a moisturized look and feel 🤷🏽‍♀️ Perfect product for pampering  yourself in the comfort of your home. .
.

As for the body wash it’s exactly how I love mine, thick with lots of lather. .

The lotion also has a thick consistency and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky but rather buttery smooth. #sponsored #stepintodarkgarden @aloette #aloette #aloettecosmetics #beautyproducts #bodycare #bodylotion #review #reviews #reviewblogger #ad #spor #aloevera #aloe #candles #spaday #spa #spas #pampering #pamperingmyself #pamperingday #bodylotion #showergel #handlotion #bodyoil #skincareproducts #beautyproduct #beautyproducts #bbloggers
