A Day in the Life of Sarah Hearts

A snippet of what life as a full-time blogger looks like.

A Day in the Life of Sarah Hearts

Though I love wearing dresses and sparkly things, through and through I’m a  jeans and t-shirts kind of girl. So when Pickwick & Weller sent me one of their t-shirts I was absolutely down to give it a try. And I thought what better way to try out the fit and comfort of a tee than wearing it all day.

Pickwick & Weller makes high quality shirts in LA with a crazy attention to detail. They offer several cuts in tees and tanks and are pretty confident that you’ll find a fit and style you’ll love. The even have a fun little quiz for you to take to help you find the perfect fit. I opted for the scoop neck shirt in the classic cut. It’s incredibly soft without feeling like it’s instantly going to tear.

So while I gave my new shirt a test run, I wanted to share a snippet of what my life looks like each day. I think a lot of people (myself included) think bloggers have glamorous lives filled with travel and eating pretty things. Though I’m thankful to say I get to do those things, my life as a full time blogger isn’t as glamorous as you may think. So here’s what my day usually looks like, no make-up, chipped nail polish and top knot included.

A Day in the Life of Sarah Hearts

7:00-ish I try my best to get out of bed around 7 although if I’ve been I up all night working this is sometimes hard to do. So when I force myself to get up, I take Darcy out and feed her and then get dressed and head to the gym by 8-ish.

9:00 Once I’m back home from the gym, I make some breakfast. My usual breakfast as of late is an egg over easy, with a few slices of avocado on whole grain toast topped with sriracha and a small glass of oj. It’s delicious and take only a couple of minutes to make. I then do dishes, laundry or any other chores around the house then shower. I like to be at my desk by 10 a.m.

10:00-1:00 My first work task of the day is going through my inbox and replying to emails. So. Many. Emails. I also reply to blog and social media comments first thing in the morning. I try to get this out of the way so I have more time to work on projects and posts. Although, some days I spend most of the day just emailing and not creating. These kind of days aren’t my favorite.

I don’t like drinking coffee first thing in the morning so I stop for my “coffee break” around 11:30 and take a couple minutes to check Twitter and my Feedly feed. I love to sit and drink coffee in our den because it’s the room with the best light in the entire house. After my coffee break I usually jump into a project. Most often DIY projects for posts take a few days to complete. Once an idea pops into my head, I use materials I already have to make a prototype of sorts (like these arrow ornaments that I will share later).

1:00-ish I stop for lunch. This usually involves throwing together a salad or eating leftovers in the kitchen.

1:30 – dinner Work, work, work. This means  working on posts, making a huge mess in my office, photographing and styling, lots and lots of editing. I also still do a bit of graphic design so I usually work on these projects in the afternoon. I usually work until around 6:30 and start cooking dinner.

P.M. Once dinner is all cleaned up, more often the not, I go back to my desk and continue working. The weekends look very similar to my weekdays except I skip the gym and go ride my horse and usually the Mr. and I try to have a date too.

  1. I love your shirt! Also, I appreciate this post a lot, because I plan to work from home and often wonder how I would be able to manage myself.

  2. Do you do all your graphic design on photoshop? I’m in the process of trying to start my own graphic design business (just starting to freelance) any helpful tips?? This is a great schedule! I hope one day I can run my business from home and be this disciplined!


  3. So neat to see a snippet of your life! I am constantly reminding myself that bloggers are ordinary people too and aren’t living in perfect houses and going on vacation every month. At least, not THIS blogger. ;) Thanks for sharing!
