  • Running late in the morning is no fun!

  • So today I'll show you my morning routine plus over 25 life hacks and DIYs that will

  • help you get ready fast and start the day right.

  • How annoying it is when alarm wakes you up from a super nice dream!

  • Well luckily this song is so good and it actually makes waking up way easier and more fun.

  • The worst thing is to wake up to an annoying sound like...

  • Yup, it immediately sets the path for a bad start of the day.

  • And that's the last thing we want right!?

  • So here's an epic hack: In the evening, before going to sleepset your favorite song

  • as the alarm.

  • You have to open the clock app, click edit, sound and then choose the song you love.

  • After having some sweet dreams, the next morning you will wake up to the sound of your favorite track.

  • This will instantly put you in a great mood, which is essential for a positive start to a day.

  • Because kicking the day off happy is a foundation of a great day ahead.

  • An awesome way to wake your body up instantly is to stretch and make 10 jumping jacks as

  • soon as you get out of bed.

  • Jumping Jacks will speed up your heart rate and improve the circulation of blood throughout

  • your body.

  • They are simple, quick yet very effective!

  • Another thing I do every single morning when I wake up is to drink a big glass of water.

  • After 7 to 8 hours of sleep, your body is dehydrated and you need to replenish the fluids

  • as soon as possible.

  • So keeping hydrated is extremely important and not going to lie - a cute water cup like

  • this one helps a lot!

  • While sipping on your water try to write down one main goal for the day.

  • It could be anything, like eat healthy, work out, finish up an essay for school etc.

  • Writing your goals down increases the odds of achieving them.

  • That's because throughout the day you will be reminded that you need to work towards

  • accomplishing the set goal!

  • Alright it's time to jump in the shower.

  • Since I don't have time to wash my hair today, I'm tying them in a high pony.

  • Especially in the winter, when our skin gets extra dry a great hack is to use a shower

  • gel which contains oil.

  • Oils will keep your skin moisturized and soft plus you will be able to skip the after shower

  • body lotions and save up quite some time.

  • Another great trick to save some precious minutes in the morning is to store a face

  • cleanser in the shower.

  • Again I use an oil based face wash, which works great for my super sensitive skin.

  • After taking a shower I put on my favorite dressing gown.

  • It is so soft and cozy and on top of that it has the cutest pair of ears on the hood!

  • Ah obsessed!

  • If you store your toothbrush in a pot you've probably noticed that it quickly gets moldy

  • and yucky inside.

  • So let's make a much cooler and more hygienic toothbrush holder instead.

  • Take a tennis ball and an exacto knife.

  • Make longer slightly curved cut on one side like that.

  • Take a pair of googly eyes and glue them on.

  • To make this buddy even cuter, lets add a little blue bow.

  • Grab your knife again and make an x shape cut at the back.

  • Be careful so you don't cut yourself.

  • It's better to ask an adult for help if you're not used to using knives yet.

  • Lastly take a suction cup and push it in.

  • How cool!

  • You can now attach this cutie to any surface and it will hold your toothbrush, pens, pencils,

  • or even keys.

  • Toothbrush pots get all moldy because of the water that drips from a toothbrush and collects inside.

  • With a holder like this any excess water will drip right into the sink and your toothbrush

  • will dry completely and fast.

  • So say hello to a much more hygienic toothbrush.

  • Alright let's wash our teeth.

  • I've slightly changed my teeth brushing routine the past couple of months.

  • First I'm washing my teeth with a normal toothpaste as always.

  • After that I dip my toothbrush into activated charcoal black powder.

  • I've never whitened my teeth before because I'm just too afraid of those toxic chemicals.

  • Even my dentist said she wouldn't recommend it.

  • This on the other hand is a 100% natural and organic teeth whitener so I thought

  • let's give it a try!

  • I know, I look like a horror movie character.

  • But it really leaves my teeth feeling super clean and white!

  • OK, we're done with the bathroom so it's time to get dressed!

  • Instead of storing clothes in piles, roll them and place close to each other in several rows.

  • This way you'll have a much better overview and will definitely save lots of time and

  • nerves when getting ready.

  • When you really don't have time figuring out what you're going to wear, the best thing

  • is to opt for jeans.

  • For a top the easiest way is to go for a T- shirt or a sweatshirt.

  • I love the color of this one.

  • But it's kind of plain so I think it's time for a little DIY sweatshirt makeover!

  • Lay your shirt on a flat surface and stick on three pieces of masking tape.

  • You want to get a cone shape because - you guessed it we're making a yummy ice cream!

  • Cut several thin strips of masking tape and stick them on diagonally like this.

  • Now dip a paintbrush in some yellow fabric paint and we can start coloring our ice cream cone.

  • In order to get very crisp and neat lines, I would recommend you to always paint away from

  • the masking tape.

  • Otherwise paint can leak under the tape and the lines won't be as perfect.

  • Once all the lines are colored it's time to remove the thin tape strips.

  • Look at these beautiful diagonal lines!

  • To achieve that cone waffle look we need to make another set of thin parallel stripes

  • in opposite direction.

  • Stick on the tape and do some more coloring.

  • I find DIYing things like this so therapeutic and calming!

  • Alright let's remove all the masking tape pieces and see what we've got!

  • Looking pretty good so far.

  • We got that cool cone texture effect, which was exactly what we wanted!

  • Time to remove the three boarder masking tape pieces as well.

  • It honestly looks even better than I expected! Wow!

  • Ok, I have a confession to make.

  • I am obsessed with fluffy pom poms!

  • I'm wearing them on my backpacks, jeans, bags and now I want them on my shirt as well.

  • Apply some fabric glue above the cone shape and stick on your first pom pom.

  • Yup each pom pom will represent one scoop of ice cream and I want three scoops.

  • I got these pom poms for less than a dollar each but you can even make your own from yarn.

  • How out of this world cute is this pom pom ice cream sweatshirt, right?!

  • I cannot explain how happy I am with it.

  • A complete makeover from plain to absolutely fabulous!

  • I love buying simple affordable clothes and revamping them into unique and cute pieces

  • that I'll love to wear for years to come!

  • I'm obsessed with the cool fluffy texture from pom poms and all in all I think I got

  • myself a new favorite sweatshirt!

  • Alright, it's makeup time!

  • Know that feeling?!

  • You're running late for school but you just can't find anything in your messy room!

  • If you have quite an extensive makeup collection, you need to get yourself a small makeup bag,

  • to store only the makeup products that you need on a daily basis!

  • And guess what?! I'll show you howto make a gorgeous lip makeup bag from scratch!

  • Grab some fabric of your choice and cut out two identical lip shapes.

  • One of them should be cut in half across.

  • Set the bigger lips piece aside and take a zipper.

  • Apply a stripe of fabric glue along the top and bottom sides of the zipper.

  • You can also use some thread a needle if you don't have the fabric glue.

  • Stick the bottom and the top lips to the zipper like that.

  • Now you want to open up that zipperthat's really important.

  • Next place the bigger fabric lips on top, with a front facing down.

  • We are going to sew all along this line to attach the front to the back side of our

  • makeup bag.

  • If you want you can totally use the fabric glue but I wanted to do some sewing for a change.

  • When you're done sewing all around your makeup bag, make a knot and snip off the excess thread.

  • Luckily we've opened the zipper beforehand, so now you can flip the pouch inside out through

  • that opening.

  • Voila! Here's our super cute lips makeup pouch all done.

  • Inside you can store the makeup necessity which you need every morning.

  • That way you will avoid digging throughout your entire makeup collection, when you really

  • don't have time for that.

  • You can also use this one as a pencil case or have it in your school bag or purse to

  • store lipstick, concealer or other bits and bobs needed to touch up your makeup.

  • Before putting on my makeup I like to exfoliate my lips.

  • Put some vaseline on your toothbrush.

  • I know it sounds weird and no we're not going to brush our teeth again.

  • Instead rub the toothbrush all over your lips in gentle circular motion.

  • The bristles will exfoliate the lips and remove dead skin cells, while vaseline will moisturize them.

  • Result are plumpy, voluminous and softest lips ever!

  • When running late opt for a cushion foundation!

  • They are compact, easy to use, and quick to apply.

  • I have two great cushion foundation hacks to share.

  • When you already think that there's no product left in the pot, grab some tweezers and flip

  • the sponge upside down.

  • You'll see there's still a lot of foundation in there!

  • You just got yourself quite a few extra uses!

  • Another trick: if there's absolutely no foundation left, add a few pumps of any other foundation

  • that comes in a regular packaging.

  • That way you can use your favorite foundation in a cushion form, which is the quickest and

  • easiest to apply!

  • The best way to apply your makeup as quickly as possible is to double the purpose of products.

  • This face palette will work for my eyes too!

  • I like to apply the highlighter all over the lid using a fluffy brush or my fingers.

  • This will brighten up the eyes, making you look healthy and awake.

  • Bronzer is perfect for creating some depth in the crease.

  • A few swipes back and forth and our eyes have a lot more defined and romantic look!

  • Use the same palette to highlight the tops of your cheekbones.

  • It will make your skin super glowy and pretty.

  • I have a double sided brush so I can simply flip it around, pick up some bronzer and dust

  • it across my forehead and sides of the face to warm up my complexion.

  • I am totally not a makup expert so I don't take these things too seriously.

  • I just swipe the products here and there hoping for an ok result.
