Five Things My Morning Can't Go Without

One / Two / Three / Four / Five

ONE// Let me let you in on a little secret, Audio Books, make any commute long or short, go by in a flash. I just finished Tina Fey's Bossypants in a little over two weeks (I have a twenty minute commute), and I could swear to you I didn't drive a minute. Seriously best idea I ever had, not if only I had thought of this sooner.

TWO// No morning can pass by without eating a banana. I don't even like bananas, but they are so darned good for you, I can't not eat one. It's part of my ungawdly creature of habit routine. I will stop at the store on the way to work (while listening to said Audio book) and buy one if I don't have one. My body counts on it ;).

THREE// How did I ever survived 23 years without using dry shampoo? Might be the biggest question of the century. This yuppie here (that's me) washed her hair every single day for the first twenty three years of her life, come on. Now I rock third day hair like a champ (remember?), all the time.

FOUR// My favorite running shoe of all time, ever. Everyone has a different preference, so I know this isn't for everyone, but morning work outs can be. Any morning is 23, 408% better with a work out. Who wants to get sweaty and gross after work anyways?

FIVE// Just discovered this BB Cream stuff when my bestie was out here. It works small miracles on this extremely freckled, uneven, polish white face of mine, and for that I am forever grateful. What a great discovery, and even better price.

What are your top fives for the morning?


  1. I used the last of my dry shampoo the other day...good thing I have been couch ridden the past 2 morning can't start without it!

  2. I eat a banana every day too! My commute is about 30 minutes, but I feel like if I bought a book all the time it would be so expensive!

    I too wash my hair everyday. It is so thin so it gets extra greasy. Dry shampoo still makes me feel dirty so I just fully wash it instead :(

    1. See if your library uses Overdrive! Then you can check out audiobooks on your smartphone for free! If they don't have Overdrive, you could always check out audiobook CDs from the library.

      And now I must stop sharing my library love! I feel a little crazy! lol.

  3. I've never used an audiobook but I should totally try! My commute is at least half an hour. But I'm reading Bossypants right now and it's so great!

  4. dry shampoo is literally the best thing on the planet. it's a fact.

  5. My top five morning things are 1. some type of breakfast or I'm useless, 2. Sirius radio (Howard stern is the best interviewer ever) 3. kiehl's facial oil. (Who knew that putting oil on your face is amazing?) 4. a morning workout (I agree that the day is way better when you do it first) and 5. hugs from my hubbie and/or boys

  6. Oh my gosh! That Suave Shampoo has saved my life soooo much!!!


  7. I've been wanting to try BBcream- so maybe I'll give this one a try! Love that it's so budget friendly. And I also LOVE dry shampoo- it's a lifesaver!

  8. I love audiobooks! If you're buying them, you should stop. It's so easy to borrow them from the library for free. I use my library's Overdrive app to download them to my iphone. It's awesome!

  9. i'm jealous of your three day hair! i have that shampoo but i don't think it works. I need longer hair so I can make a cute bun!
