Hey guys!! I hope your week is off to a WONDERFUL start!!! For those of you that follow along on my Instagram, y’all might have seen that I posted up a poll on my stories asking if you guys would be interested in a breakdown of what I do in a day and I was honestly shocked by how many of you said yes! haha!
So now that I’m back in Houston, (after the fun little getaway to New Orleans for D’s game against the Saints) I thought I would buckle down and give you guys a whole run down before we’re off on our next adventure to LA to face the Chargers this week!!
P.S. I am SO excited to go home!!! My mom and little sister are flying down from the Bay to go to the game too and I CANT WAIT!!!!!! It’s been FIVE whole months since I’ve been back in LA (crazy that it’s been that long!!) and TWO long months since I’ve seen my family!! So I’m super super excited to spend time with them and in my favorite place in the entire world!!!
But anyway, let’s get into what a NORMAL day looks like for me! 😃
*This is my typical schedule Monday-Friday (unless D has a Monday night game)! And Tuesday’s are usually his day’s off, so those sometimes look a little different in the afternoon! But I’ll give you the typical breakdown!!
First, I wake up between 7/7:30am (unless D is a little louder than normal when he gets up and leaves for work lol, which would mean I’m up around 5am! I have a pretty hard time falling back asleep once I’m awake, so if I’m up.. I’m up for the day! lol!)
So once I’m up, I always start my morning with prayer.
I then check my phone for about 30-40 minutes (that sounds bad, I know!), but I read through some emails, check IG, check the other logistics for my blog, respond to text’s etc.
From there, I get up, make the bed, then head in to the bathroom.
(These are all the products I use right when I get up!)
Next, I’ll make my way into the kitchen and either pour a bowl of Frosted Flakes, Honeycombs or Cinnamon Life cereal lol or warm up a muffin! (We always get the blueberry and poppyseed muffins from costco) ORRRR if I want something super light, I go for a CLIF Bar – fun fact: I HATEEEEE peanut butter!!!.. But I ONLY eat the crunchy peanut butter CLIF bar’s lol. I’m weird!
So while eating, I’ll answer any pressing emails that can’t wait until later and start to get dressed for the gym!
And I try to make it there by 9/9:30am! Sometimes I don’t get there until 10/10:30am lol but on a good day I try to get there in the 9 o’clock hour so there’s no lunch time madness on the backend of my workout!
(These are my go-to gym necessities)
After the gym I’ll stop by either Whole Foods or Target, some days both (but AT LEAST one of them, EVERY SINGLE DAY!!.. I’m not even kidding y’all!).. D’s always running out of some sort of fruit, or drink, or both! lol!
But after that I’ll run any other errands I have + any D has (he’s literally at work ALLLL DAY.. so I try to help where I can!)
From there, I’ve usually worked up an appetite lol so I’ll either grab something from Whole Foods, Chipotle or Chick Fil A lol! Those are my go-to’s!… However, I just recently discovered this pizza place by our house last week and it’s actually probably really bad that I did haha! I’ve since gotten their personal pizza’s TWICE! oh well!
So I usually get back home around 12:30/1:30pm depending on everything I have to do and I’ll finish my lunch, then hop in the shower!
Right after the shower I’ll put on my tanning drops (if I’m not lazy haha!). These tanning drops are literally the best ones EVER!! Super natural looking and it’s a gradual tan! You just mix a few drops in your regular body lotion and apply! And I’ll also spray a few sprays of my GO-TO hair product! It has 25 benefits in it and helps keeps my hair healthy and I honestly feel like it grows way quicker since I’ve started using it over a year ago!
After that I’ll cut up some strawberries for D (he puts them in his smoothies at night, so I prep them before he get’s home) and I’ll wash out his smoothie cup so it’s also ready to go!
I then make my way over to our couch (I never get anything done when going to cafe’s etc so I stick to working at home!), I just turn on some Gilmore Girls (here in Houston, it comes on every day at 1pm on UPtv lol) and I start responding to emails, send over pitch ideas to brands, upload content for approvals, finish up any other blog admin stuff, write up blog posts, etc! This can take anywhere between 2-4 hours depending on what’s due!
So usually around 4/5pm, I start to get dressed and do my hair and make up (this also depends on if I have something earlier in the day that requires me to get ready like a photo shoot! But on regular days I start to get ready around 4pm) – And this also might not happen at all lol! Sometimes I stay in leggings and no make up all day!
(These are all the make up products I use!)
But either way, after that I prepare to post on Instagram (this process can take one – two hours), so I usually post by 7/7:30pm.
After posting, I clean up around the house, do the laundry, take out the trash, break down the boxes, check the mail etc!
And once all of that is done, I have about an hour or so to just hang out and catch up on MY shows before DeAndre gets home lol! But lately I’ve been trying to organize my closet (still haven’t finished that and we’ve been here for like 5 months! 😫 Orrrrr, sometimes there’s events in the evening that I go to!.. But it’s NOTHING like LA where there were MULTIPLE events in a day and night… there really is barely one every few weeks!! 😩😩 … And again… they still are sadly nothing like the LA events… but that’s okay… Or is it?! haha! jk… kinda!
Dinner is usually around 7:30/8ish or when D gets home if he hasn’t already eaten at the facility.
And then we really just end the night catching up on our days and our shows! We’re currently watching Ballers and Power and are waiting for How To Get Away With Murder to come back on!
Oh! And for my night routine, I use the Sound Sleep Cocoon Night Gel-Cream by Dermalogica! It’s super lightweight and just keeps my skin moisturized throughout the night!
* Thursday’s look a little different, because I have my photo shoots every week in the morning’s. So everything is shifted around a bit!
**And again, Tuesday’s are also a little different in the afternoon’s because that’s DeAndre’s off day, so we try to get in a fun activity here and there.
***And obviously if there’s an event in the morning or mid day, things shift around a bit too!
****I also always try to explore 3-4 new places here in Houston a week! So that falls somewhere in between the free spaces, along with an occasional massage or nail appt! I’m ALLLLL for a little self-care!!
And that’s basically what happens on a typical day! Very much a routine, but obviously things can still shift depending on if there’s an event, photo shoot, D has an off day, I’m traveling etc! And obviously Saturday’s (the day before the game) and Sunday’s (game day’s) look completely different than these!
But hopefully y’all enjoyed this little break down! It’s definitely different than when I was working a full-time corporate job in Silicon Valley and definitely different than many, but I’m FOREVER grateful to have the flexibility I have!!
As always, thanks for reading!! Hope y’all liked it!! And thank you for your continued support, comments, likes, questions, link clicks etc!! It really does help me continue to do what I love!!
