My After-Work Routine

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tazo® Tea for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that I have been working full time for a few weeks, I thought I would share my after-work routine!

5:00pm- I leave work and head back to my apartment for the day.

5:20pm- I check my mail, pick up packages if there are any (with the new apartment there have been quite a few), and change out of my work clothes.

5:45pm- I turn on the TV, and make some Tazo® Tea. Usually in the Passion® or Wild Sweet Orange blends. I have always enjoyed both of these blends, they were one of my favorite things to get in between classes when I was in college. I usually have some caffeine in the morning and that's just about all that I need for the day. I love these Tazo teas because they are just a delicious hot drink and these specific herbal blends don't have the extra caffeine in them. But if you prefer the extra kick, the Zen green tea or Awake™ English Breakfast black tea may be a better option for you. You can find out where to find Tazo near you, here

6:00pm- If the lighting is good in my apartment that day, I take some pictures for Instagram or a future blog post. I usually take a lot of outfit flatlays all at once. Which also leads to outfit planning for work and outfit posts for the blog! I think I have spent up to an hour just messing around with my closet after all I planned to do was take one photo.

7:00pm- I typically make dinner around this time, but it depends on the day. I have been trying to learn how to cook for myself, but I usually end up making something like eggs with spinach and feta, chicken quesadillas, or a frozen pesto pizza.

8:00pm- I get started on blog work around this time. Sometimes it doesn't take up much of my day, other days it takes up most of the time left until I go to sleep! If I shoot outfit photos after work, this entire evening routine gets bumped about an hour or two. We usually take the photos around 6:00 for lighting purposes. 
10:30pm- Time to get ready for bed. I shower and dry my hair at some point between dinner and this time, so I'm usually already in my pajamas. I wash my face, brush my teeth, plan my outfit for work if that hasn't been done already, and sometimes get my lunch ready for work as well.
11:00pm- Time to sleep! Well, this is the time I hope to get to sleep. It sometimes ends up more around midnight, which is a lot better than the 1:00 or 1:30 bed time I had in high school and college.

  1. Awesome post!
    I feel you, I usually go to bed super late, but this year in uni I've decided to sleep sooner and it's really changing the way I work/study/blog!
    As for blogging, I usually have days where I do many posts, and days where I "slack off".


  2. Really enjoyed this post Cara! I love hearing about people's routine's and the tips I can take from them :)
