This is one of many Mornings In ________ posts in which local ladies tell us about their morning beauty and breakfast routines. And then we all wonder if our mornings would be better if we, too, ate rice congee for breakfast.
Hometown: Lusaka, Zambia but living in Bonn, Germany
Age: old enough to know that you have to use products that work for you!
Occupation: Radio show host, free lance writer and blogger
My alarm is set for: 7:45 am
Most mornings I eat: Muesli with a few slices of banana and yoghurt. It’s pretty filling and keeps me from eating too much at lunch time! Its healthy, tastes good, and I find it refreshing. Sometimes I get something from die bäckerei (the bakery). Bread isn’t just food here, it’s culture! I’ll get brötchen (rolls) that you typically eat with eggs, cheese, butter, or cold meats, however you like it!
My beauty routine consists of: I use Chamomile silky cleansing oil on my face three times a week, In the morning I ‘wash’ my face only with water and then moisturise with Bebe young care day/ night cream – it’s really soft and sinks into my skin pretty well. I also use the Vitamin C daily moisturiser. Vitamin C works wonders on my skin, cleared some acne scars, and smells divine. Sometimes I use any of the great cheap masks from Balea and I use Ducray Icytane moisturising mousse on my body, its amazing for dry skin.
Then, I head to work by: by tram, I get to the Hauptbahnhof (central station) and then I walk ten minutes to work. The walk is through a magnificent avenue of chestnut trees and Clemensruhe Palace is at the end of the alley. My commute is 30 minutes.
