With our daily hustle constantly moving and the constant stream of information, once we get home at the end of the day it can be hard enough to not go straight to bed – let alone keep up a well tailored and thought out routine. The same thing goes for the morning. It can be hard to get a work out in or stick to any one regimen when the only thing you need to do is get cleaned up and head to work, but those in successful positions all have a routine in the morning that reminds them to reflect and take care of themselves in order to advocate for the best day possible.
If you remotely follow any person in the make up community online, chances are you have heard of or purchased from the company, Lime Crime. The solely online brand was created in 2008, by company’s founder and CEO, Doe Deere. Doe has had a love for make up since she was very young and after moving to America when she was 17 years old – she wanted to succeed in her music career with her band. She looked everywhere for pigments she so desired but did so in vain. Later, she created her own and Lime Crime was born.
This time in her life set many foundations for her including teaching her how to market herself, work with her husband, and working in the make up business in general. Along with becoming the CEO of her very own company, Doe has a very specific morning routine that she does every single morning – leaving her prepared for the day both physically and mentally.
First things first. Waking up! Doe wakes up every day at 8:30 a.m. It’s easy for her to wake up early, as she’s always been a morning person – but it’d be hard not to be with such a relaxing routine! After this she drinks some water and does some stretches. She clears her mind and spends the first part of her day with herself before she eats breakfast and opens her phone up to the world. Her favorite breakfast meal is grits with fresh squeezed orange juice, but sometimes she switches it up with yogurt and fruit instead.
After this she checks emails, Instagram and other electronic dealings before she finishes getting ready. After her hair and make up is done, she sits with her pets for a while before heading into the office.
With this routine, you can go from loving the night life to an early bird in no time! Learn more: http://limecrime.tumblr.com/
