My alarm is set for: 7 a.m. I’m definitely a morning person. Even when I don’t set an alarm I usually wake up early on my own.
Hometown: Benalla, Victoria, Australia

On cold mornings I’ll have a bowl of porridge with coconut sprinkled on top or poached eggs on toast. In summer, it gets too hot to eat a cooked meal in the morning, so I usually have either fresh fruit salad or toast with Vegemite.
No matter what the weather, my breakfast is always accompanied by a pot of tea. I get most of my tea from the supermarket, but for a special treat I’ll pick up a box of gourmet tea from T2, an awesome tea store in Melbourne.
Getting dressed up is my favourite part of the day. I always wear sunscreen (my favourite kind is Nivea Face Veil). My makeup usually consists of BB Cream from The Face Shop, concealer, blush from Bella Pierre, a flick of Barry M’s liquid liner, Bourgeois mascara and my favourite red lippy: Red Sinner from Lipstick Queen.
I usually wear my hair up for work. If I’m short on time, I’ll whip it into a bun, but I love playing around with vintage hairstyles and I’m obsessed with braids at the moment.
I walk to work every day. It usually takes about 10-15 minutes. I don’t have a car or a driver’s license, but I’m currently taking driving lessons. I think that even if I had a car I’d still walk to work because it’s such a nice way to de-stress and take in the gorgeous scenery.
Thanks so much for sharing, Vanessa! I know we’ve got heaps of Aussie readers – what’s your breakfast + beauty routine?
