Morning list

When did you get up?

7AM. My curtains are so thin and white I start waking up to the natural light, but I love it. Sometimes I continue sleeping with an eye mask if I haven’t slept for 7-8 hours, which is the minimum I need for a good day. It’s funny how the minute I move or show a signal that I’m awake Minnie attacks me, haha that’s a good way to wake up!

Moneltako heräsit?

7. Verhoni ovat niin ohuet ja vaaleat, että herään usein luonnonvaloon, mutta tykkään siitä. Joskus jatkan nukkumista silmälaput silmillä, jos 7-8 tuntia ei ole vielä tullut unta, mutta yleensä en. Se 8 tuntia kuitenkin on usein minimi mulla hyvään päivään. Unien jatkaminen on vähän haastaavaa tosin, sillä heti jos katson kännykkää tai näytän hereilläolon merkkejä, Minnie hyökkää kimppuuni :D

What was the first thing you did?

Played with Minnie few minutes, fed her, put on black leggings (so that no one knows I have pajama underneath), put on my contact lenses, coat and sneakers and head out for a short walk with Minnie. The twenty minutes of each day always starts like this.

Mitä teit ensimmäisenä?

Leikin Minnien kanssa hetken, laitoin sille ruoan, ja vedin jalkaan mustat leggingsit, jottei näytä aivan siltä että olisin yöpuvussa ulkona. Sitten vielä piilarit silmiin, takki ja lenkkarit päälle, ja pienelle kävelylle Minnien kanssa. Ensimmäiset 20-30 minuuttia päivästä menee aina näin.

What did you have for breakfast?

Porridge. Consisted of oats, a bit of mashed banana, cinnamon, sprinkle of salt, chia seeds and an egg white. Topped with blueberries and honey. I always have either porridge, overnight oats, avocado toasts or smoothie. And a big coffee or two. My latest addiction is adding a bit of turmeric and cinnamon in to the creamy oat milk before foaming it.

Mitä söit aamiaiseksi?

Puuroa. Seassa vähän muussattua banaania, kanelia, suolaa, chia-siemeniä ja kananmunan valkuainen. Päällä mustikoita ja hunajaa. Joka aamu tulee syötyä joko kaurapuuroa, tuorepuuroa, avokadoleipiä tai smoothieta. Ja kahvia, kuppi tai kaksi. Uusin suosikkijuttuni kahvissa on lisätä maitoon vähän kurkumaa ennen vaahdottamista, ja päälle tietysti kanelia. 

What’s the best thing about mornings?

Starting fresh. And coffee. I usually clean everything the night before so that I can wake up to a clean home, mornings are my favorite time of the day. I love planning the day in my notebook, check what I have on the agenda and just plan everything and come up with new ideas. In the morning I feel most energetic. And did I mention coffee?

Paras asia aamuissa?

Uusi aloitus kuin puhtaalta pöydältä. Ja konkreettisesti puhtaalta pöydältä, usein iltaisin siivoan niin että saa herätä siistissä kodissa. Aamut ovat ihanan rauhallisia ja jotenkin inspiroivia, silloin oon energisimmilläni ja uusia ideoita tulee herkimmin. Suunnittelen heti aamusta päivää aina muistivihkoon, tarkistan päivän menot ja kirjoittelen to do listaa. Ja kahvi.

What are you wearing in the mornings?

Pajama. Right now grey long sleeve shirt, blue & white striped pants and slippers. I love home clothes: cute tops, shorts, robes, slippers…

Mitä aamuisin on päällä?

Yöpuku. Nyt harmaa pitkähihainen paita, sinivalkoiset väljät raitahousut ja tossut. Oon vähän liiankin hulluna kotivaatteisiin, kaikkiin söpöihin toppeihin, shortseihin, aamutakkeihin, tossuihin…

Have an amazing day people! 💕

Aurinkoista torstaita kaikille! 💕

Ps. Huomenna on Cliniquen tapahtuma Helsingin Stockmannilla klo 16-18, Cliniquella on siellä uusi hieno piste ja oon siellä itse paikalla. Tulkaa moikkailemaan tai vain tsekkailemaan tuo piste, neljän ja kuuden välillä! :)

    Hi Marianna,
    I loved this post! You always seem to be so organized and structured!
    I love waking up to natural light at the moment as well. One of the best feelings of spring!
    When I read your post something caught my attention though. I had dogs when I was younger and in my experience you should not feed your dog right before or after you walk them because it can cause problems with their stomach.
    I don’t know if you heard of that already and you might have a good reason to do it your way but I just thought I’d let you know in case you didn’t.
    Minnie is too cute to be in pain!
    Sending you hugs,
    thanks for being you,
    Ann

      Hi Ann! Oh I haven’t heard of that, I learnt this way when Minnie was younger, she always needed to go out straight after eating. The morning walk is quite short though, the longest walk I always do in the afternoon. Thank you for the comment! x

    Hi Marianna,
    I love when you tell us about your personal life and your daily routine. I love mornings too, the free time, before I have to leave for work. Unfortunately I like evenings and nights too, so I mostly have a problem that I don’t sleep enough.

      Yeah some people have a lot of energy in the evenings! If I stay too late I pass the being tired phase and then it’s hard to go to sleep :D Thank you so much Janina! x

    Hi Marianna!
    Hope you’re having a great day. This was a wonderful post! I love your home decor, that is where a lot of my home inspiration comes from :)

    I’ve been hearing a lot about turmeric powder, could you do a post on it? I’m curious to try it myself! Have you noticed any benefits from it?

    xoxo,
    Linda

    • Marianna Marianna says:

      Yes it’s said to be a magical spice, and I love the taste when you don’t put too much of it. If I cook chicken I always use turmeric, the best food ever is coconut milk chicken with turmeric. I don’t know if I have more to say about it because I don’t know exactly the benefits with personal experience, but it’s definitely interesting googling articles about it. And thank you so much Linda! x
