Video // Morning Routines

01 October 2012



Here is a little look into a typical morning of Christina and I in our NYC apartment. Of course some mornings are a bit more hectic, but days like this when we can take out time are my absolute favorite. Here Christina is about to head off for a trip to Amsterdam as I am getting ready for a day of appointments in the city. Lounging around our computers while we blog and chatting about last night's parties or todays adventures to come is a wonderful way to start the day. I absolutely love living with this girl and having  another closet to rummage through is just a perk. Even though we have completely different styles, Christina and I always end up finding a piece that compliments both of our wardrobes... like how I am obsessed with her lacey black dress or how she has grown attached to my floral headpieces. We are always having fun in the apartment and everyday is a party. 

Anyways, this video roughly shows a bit of my daily morning routine. Of course I always apply a cat eye, red lip, and loose waves. Pretty easy if you ask me. I rarely spend more than 15 minutes getting ready and basically have my regimen down to a science. Lately I have been using Paul Mitchell's beach waves for a tousled, almost messy look. The longer my hair grows the more laid-back I become about styling it. Lucky for me Paul Mitchell has me covered for this simple look. To find the products I used in this video, find a Paul Mitchell salon locator here. And if you are as into the products as I am, submit your #curlsconfession on their facebook page here!

Your apartment is soooooo beautiful! I love all the decorations and furniture and the view is spectacular. You two are both so gorgeous.
Love the hair! So easy to do. I wish my hair could tame as easily as yours can.

Thank you for the glimpse into your world. The video of you and Christina in the morning is fantabulous! It's so organised and girly - love the feminine clothes on the closet rack, the makeup, the way you wave your hair and the way the two of you move about. It's amazing how adept you both are. All that would probably have taken me hours.

I've always wanted a roommate. Maybe someday I'd have a roommate as awesome as both of you. My favorite part was when you were both at the table. I love the video!

I don't even remember how I landed here between writing a personal essay and googling the Smurfs (I take a lot of breaks between my homework) buuut I just had to tell you that this video is the sweetest thing ever. You and your roommate are both absolute beauties and the hug scene at the end REALLY made me miss/remember the days when I had my BFF for a roommate and we never left the apartment without a hug and "I love you." I think the fact that you had a Beach House track as your background song also added to the cutesy/lovey feelings being conjured up. BH is one of my favorite bands of all time. :)

I found your blog for a few days and can`t stop reading it! I love your pictures and how you write, despite of my bad english (I am from Germany).
However, I love love love all about your blog, its just perfect and has very much charisma :)

My question is: what is the music in this video? This song gives me such a relaxed and beautiful feeling!

Thank you!
Esra
