Hi everyone,

It is Thursday and my weekend is starting as soon as I leave the office. Working 80% has its advantages: I can spend more time with Chloe-Sofia and work on the blog while she sleeps. Although that is proving more and more difficult since she naps only once a day now. And as I am most of the time tired, I take a nap with her.

That is why I started publishing articles only twice a week. I am tired. I don’t have the energy to publish three times a week anymore. Fall got to me like never before. I even started taking food supplements, add Spirulina in my morning smoothie and snack on Vitamin B, Magnesium and Chrome. The algae taste bad but it works wonders. I decided to publish the interviews only twice a month so that I can rest in the evenings when I come home from the office.

The other day one of my friends and a fellow blogger, Lizzie, published an article about a day as a blogger. Sometimes people say that they admire how I do it all. Well, most of the time I am just doing what is right in front of me and the rest has to wait. So if you wonder how a day in a life of a working mom/lifestyle blogger/wife looks like, here it is:

A Day In A Life Of A Lifestyle Blogger:

6 AM: Wake up. Prepare morning milk for Chloe-Sofia (Alex and I alternate). She usually falls asleep after she finishes her bottle.

6:15 -6:30 AM: Take a shower. Clean, moisturize and put a serum on my face. I am really big on serums lately.

6:30 AM: Wake up Alex (if he still sleeps). Dress up Chloe-Sofia, clean her face, nose (that is always a big fight as she hates when we clean her nose with a physiological serum).

6:45 AM: Prepare my green smoothie. Get dressed and put on my makeup.

7 AM: Trying to put a jacket on Chloe-Sofia and close her in the stroller. Read: chasing her up and down the house as she thinks that is fun running away.

7:15 AM: Leaving Chloe-Sofia in daycare. It is 5 minutes walk from our house so it is very convenient.

7:20 AM: Alex picks me up in front of the daycare and we drove to our favorite coffee place in neighboring village. I have my morning soy cappuccino and he gets croissants.

7:39 AM: Alex drives to his office while I take a train. The train stop is 10 minutes from my office and I like to walk a bit in the morning.

WORK

5:20 PM: Leave work to catch the train back home.

6 PM: Pick up Chloe-Sofia from daycare.

6:20 PM: Running around the house trying to take off her jacket, undress her a put her in the bathtub.

7 PM: Chloe-Sofia watches 2-3 of her favorite songs on TV. Right now is Coco Câline from Julian Doré and Chocolate from Lartiste.

7-8 PM: Alex cooks dinner. We all eat.

8 PM: Chloe-Sofia has her night bottle and goes to bed.

8-10 PM: I spend some time with Alex and work on my blog.

10 PM: Going to bed.

How does your day look like?

You have such a busy day! 🙂 I get feeling tired all the time too, I think it’s a common mum trait, haha! I’m lucky I only work part time so I feel I have a little more time to myself some evenings when I’m not exhausted from working all day, and I can blog then. I definitely agree with not pushing yourself ot blog too much – it’s jsut a blog, it will always be there no matter how many posts you make 🙂

Hope you are having a lovely weekend! We are getting our family Santa photo done tomorrow, gotta get a move on with my Christmas cards, haha! 🙂

I love reading these posts! I recently put a similar one up on my blog. My days all differ as I work 3-4 days a week now instead of the 5-6 I was before so that I have more time on the blog. But I have definitely decreased the amount of time I spend with my blog lately because it was getting to be too much. I try my best to still blog 3x a week but have found that 2x has been more manageable lately. I try my best but have started putting my health first =). You are one busy mama! I love reading your blog and it is very encouraging to know you are still blogging and working with a little one.

I totally agree that posting twice a week is enough. You still have to keep up with Instagram, etc. so it is a lot of work. Thank you for stopping by, Rina. Have a lovely weekend. XO

What a great sweater – the color and length are lovely! It’s always interesting to see how people spend and balance their days – so perfect that working a little less means spending more time with Chloe-Sofia!

First off, your sweater and jeans are fabulous! Such a cute outfit. And while my kids are both school aged and I don’t work outside of my home, my day looks pretty similar to yours! I wake up between 4:30 and 5:00 and shower right away. I put on make up and back into jammies and bathrobe while I drink coffee and start blogging work. The kids get up at 6:30 and the morning routine of breakfast and getting ready for school begins. We leave for school at 7:45 and I am back home by 8:15. I have from 8:15 until 12:45 to get as much as blogging work done as possible or photographs or whatever needs doing while I am kid-free. Then it’s time to pick up my youngest from preschool and the rest day is dedicated to family stuff. Dinner is around 6:00 and kids are bathed and in bed by 7:30. Thanks for sharing your day! Have a great weekend.
