Maybe it’s because I’m kind of nosy, but some of my favourite blog posts to read and Youtube videos to watch are the ones where people document a day in their life. I find them so interesting that I thought hey, why not do one myself?
Seeing as this blog is called The Sunday Mode, what better day to document than a Sunday. Sundays are fairly ideal for me which is why I love them so much. The key word here is ideal though, so please don’t judge me too harshly based on what I’m doing or not doing. After all, I’m in Sunday Mode!
8.30am: I rise and shine and get that body moving.
We have an elliptical machine in our house which makes exercising really convenient. I hop on for around 45 minutes and use this time to multitask. While walking on the elliptical I use my phone to check emails and plan out the coming day (for more info on how I do this, see this post).
9.30am: Time to put on my super fluffy robe and make myself look presentable. I do my hair and makeup, get dressed, grab my camera and I’m set for the day.
10.30am: Leave for breakfast/brunch. Sundays are the greatest in my eyes because I usually go to a cafe with either a family member or a friend. If the sun is shining that day, extra bonus.
11.00am: Devour a delicious breakfast and soak up the cafe life (I promise there’s Acai under that granola).
12pm: Head to the Farmer’s Market and see what local produce or delicious baked goods the vendors are selling. This weekend it was scones fresh from the oven, mmmm. I usually find a nice area nearby and take some outfit pictures for upcoming blog posts or some snaps of anything that I think I might want to incorporate into a future post.
2.00pm: Get home. I tend to wash my hair on Sundays so before I hop in the shower and get all fresh, lately I’ve been loving doing a little boxing. I rope a family member into holding focus mitts for me while I box with my super girly pink gloves.
I’ve only been boxing for around 3 months or so but I already love it. It’s probably one of the only forms of exercise that feels like fun to me, rather than a chore.
3.00pm: I start to get hangry (hungry/angry) around this time, so I refuel with lunch while I watch something on Netflix. Right now I’m still loving Nashville!
3.45pm’ish: Blog time. I upload photos, edit, write, plan upcoming posts, schedule and spend time reading other people’s blogs through Bloglovin’ (if you’re interested, you can follow me on Bloglovin’ here). I love reading different blogs, it’s always great for gaining inspiration and honestly it’s just interesting to read fresh content from diverse people.
I blame my Italian heritage for my immense love of Italian food, I just can’t get enough of the stuff. So naturally, Sunday nights are designated pasta nights in our house. We use freshly made pasta from the market and trust me, once you try fresh pasta you’ll never want to go back to the packet stuff. So good I can’t even explain.
8.30pm: I park myself on the couch, catch up on TV shows and enjoy some R&R with the family. I’ll usually spend time scrolling through Instagram and catching up on Twitter too. If I’m feeling extra restless I’ll work on my blog as well.
10.30pm: Unless I’m dead tired, I read for quite a while and then head to bed.
That’s it! I love Sundays and you can probably see why; it’s basically all the things I love crammed into one day. My Sundays aren’t always going to be this idyllic, so for now I’m just trying to enjoy every minute.
Let me know if you liked this type of post and what a typical Sunday looks like for you, I’d love to know!
