The Mama Notes
The Art of Mornings Caitlin Kruse The Mama Notes

Caitlin is the founder of The Mama Notes and the Brand and Creative Partnerships Director of Glitter Guide

The first thing I do when I wake up is…
Make coffee, drink a glass of water & turn on Morning Joe on MSNBC and then open my laptop to try and quickly check emails before my daughter wakes up  -- all in my nightgown :) 

 My skin survives on…
 Routine. If I don't follow the same routine (not necessarily the same products) I always notice a difference in my skin. I'm much more regimented in the evening - as soon as my daughter goes to bed I put on PJs and wash my face and apply my products so I don't get too lazy!  
 
 The song playing in the background…
 Most recently it's been the Moana soundtrack, on repeat.  
 
 I (try to) incorporate wellness by…
 Giving myself 'me time' after my daughter goes to bed. Most recently this has been doing prenatal yoga, drinking tea and getting into bed with time to read. And I just started using essential oils which I love!  
 
 Breakfast is my time to…
 Quickly find something to eat. I'm bad with planning breakfast for myself and usually have toast with almond butter or avocado, Barbara's Puffins Cereal & almond milk, and/or a smoothie. 
 
 If I had nowhere to be until the afternoon, I would…
 Have a low key morning with my daughter without my laptop, take a long walk and go to the park for her to swing!
