My alarm is set for: 6:30 am
Hometown: Warsaw, Poland
Occupation: customer service specialist
I have no time to eat at home so I take my breakfast with me to the office and eat it right in front of my computer. Normally I have two rye bread sandwiches with almond butter and honey (although most people here prefer white bread with cheese or ham), a small yoghurt, an apple or some other fruit currently in season.
And I drink coffee with milk and Finnish xylitol (birch sugar that prevents caries rather than cause it!). Coffee is quite typical for any office worker around here 🙂 Xylitol isn’t. But I’m a fan of “healthy” food so I mostly order it online in advance – I rarely get an opportunity to b buy it “on the go”.
I use only organic cosmetics not tested on animals and not selling their goods in China where animal testing is still mandatory. I wash my face with Alverde clay gel, then I put on my make-up: Alverde cream-to-powder (powder, foundation and face balm all in one), Benecos eye concealer, Benecos eye pencil (blue or green), Rhea Lavender Pearl mineral eyeshadow and Alverde Fake Lashes mascara (fake lashes effect is not that visible but it’s a good mascara nevertheless).
These are not typical make-up products: Benecos and Alverde are German organic brands, and Rhea is Polish mineral make-up brand. Most girls prefer well-known international brands.
For my lips I use Hurraw! balm (ordered from the U.S. – coffee flavour, yum!) or Alterra balm (bought in a local Rossmann – a popular chain of drugstores both in Poland and in Germany).
Then, I head to work by: I go by bus (20 minutes) and subway (30 minutes). All in all, it takes me about an hour to get to work. I don’t complain – when I lived in Moscow, it took me at least one hour and a half 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing, Ania! Any other Polish readers out there who will tell us about their morning routines?
P.S. My 3 product makeup bag!
