  • (upbeat music)
  • - My mom, hopefully most of you know,
  • her name is Terri.
  • I am very close with her.
  • - My mother is an incredible women.
  • She is a cancer survivor,
  • a fashionista, a working mother.
  • She's also incredibly intense.
  • - My mom definitely loves to shop still.
  • She messaged me the other day
  • and was like girl guess how many pair of shoes
  • I got for $250?
  • Five!
  • - My mom is really funny.
  • My mom has like a really good sense of humor.
  • My mom is not afraid.
  • My mom is fearless.
  • She has a lot of energy, fast.
  • Knows what she wants.
  • - We're all becoming our mothers at the end of the day.
  • Let's not kid ourselves.
  • - If you meet my mom you understand
  • where a lot of me comes from.
  • - On terms of like beauty routine and fashion
  • and stuff, I'm much more like into that stuff
  • than my mom is.
  • But I'm still into like the most simplest version
  • of that and I think that I get that part of things
  • from my mom 'cause she's just like a simple gal.
  • - I'm a little bit different from my mom
  • 'cause I'm less intense than she is
  • and I don't take myself as seriously.
  • But I definitely do think that the things
  • I like are the things I like and I like them for a reason.
  • And I just sounded like my mother just then.
  • - I asked her what her routine was and I was like,
  • oh, I'll get maybe like four or five sentences.
  • No, no, no, no, no, no.
  • She gets up at 5:30 in the morning
  • to go to work by 8:30.
  • She gets up she has to exercise.
  • She has the same breakfast she makes.
  • She showers, curls her hair, does her makeup.
  • She's like yeah sometimes I'm a little bit late
  • to work too.
  • And I was like how?
  • You get up at 5:30 in the morning.
  • - Terri barely has a routine like she literally
  • sleeps until probably the last second
  • that she can sleep in before work.
  • And that is me.
  • She set's her alarm for seven a.m.
  • She hit's the alarm buzzer for 10 minutes, more sleep.
  • Hits it a second time for 10 minutes more sleep.
  • Turns it off at 7:20.
  • Turns on T.V to look at news 'till 7:45.
  • Then gets in shower for about eight minutes.
  • Drys off, brushes teeth, uses face moisturizers,
  • puts on deodorant, goes to the bedroom and puts on lotion,
  • puts on clothes and shoes, puts on jewelry,
  • Touch up hair, drink some sparkling water,
  • pack water and food, arrive at the office at nine a.m.
  • Also, I guess, I'll like sort of try to take out
  • some of the things that I do to make sure
  • I'm doing exactly like my mom does.
  • So instead of immediately reaching for my phone
  • when I wake up.
  • I'm going to have to hold off on that.
  • - My moms morning routine is so detailed, thorough
  • and intense that I can't even share a hotel room
  • with her anymore.
  • Sharon says, clock rings at four.
  • She actually gets up out of bed at five.
  • From five to six she showers and irons.
  • She washes her hair, blow dries it,
  • and then puts in a couple curlers.
  • This is my favorite part of when she described
  • her routine and I was like mom,
  • I need your skin care routine.
  • She puts sunscreen on first.
  • Then she put's on lotion.
  • And then she's like you know I don't wear
  • any makeup but I finish it off with a little
  • mascara, a little blush, a little lipstick.
  • But I don't wear any makeup.
  • Before she makes breakfast she wants the world
  • to know that she washes towels every day.
  • To make breakfast, she does her dishes.
  • To brush her teeth.
  • And then she leaves the house at around seven.
  • And then she gets to work by 7:30.
  • I think I'm just going to get very triggered
  • doing my moms routine.
  • (chicken cawing)
  • Oh, no, no, no, no.
  • Good morning, it is five in the morning.
  • - So my alarm went off at 5:30.
  • Why?
  • I don't know if you can tell but I'm not a morning person.
  • So my mom says that she wakes up between 5:30 and six,
  • but she hits the snooze a couple of times.
  • So we'll go with 5:45.
  • This time of the morning smells bad.
  • Woke up at like 5:55,
  • still not into it.
  • My mom apparently is up by now so I have to be up by now.
  • (snoring)
  • - I've been up since like 3:30
  • because I set my alarm for four
  • and my body sometimes does this thing
  • where if I have to wake up early,
  • it'll wake me up thirty minutes earlier.
  • It's a fun little magic trick.
  • (laughing)
  • - So when my mom gets up,
  • she apparently goes for a twenty or thirty minute walk.
  • Doctors orders.
  • So, that's what I'm doing now.
  • It is dark as bananas out here.
  • Bananas are yellow, they're not very dark.
  • (snoring)
  • - Typically, when I wake up my cats are just singing.
  • They are just meowing.
  • They are screaming.
  • They are ready for their breakfast.
  • This morning, they were like very sweet
  • and very like much like what are you doing,
  • like, go back to bed.
  • I used Bones as a pillow.
  • That was nice.
  • I believe the next thing on the agenda is a bath,
  • which I'm not too mad about, so.
  • (laughing)
  • (purring)
  • - Okay, I understand why my mom is awake now.
  • 'cause the sky really gets light in the last half an hour.
  • I feel a little bit more awake now.
  • Making full sentences.
  • - I did the morning routine-ish.
  • I set my alarm last night for seven A.M.
  • Which is what my mother sets her alarm for.
  • Roberta tried to wake me up a little bit before seven.
  • So, that through me off a little bit.
  • She probably like knocked on my door.
  • Yes, I say knocked because that's what it sounds like
  • when she's like ramming her body against my bedroom door.
  • (laughs)
  • - I just had my bath.
  • It's interesting because typically I take a bath
  • as like a whine down activity.
  • Next, I have to but on sunscreen.
  • I don't know if this is actually the proper way
  • to put on sunscreen on bare skin.
  • 'cause I typically put it on top of my moisturizer.
  • Typically, right now, I would brush my teeth
  • but my mom doesn't do that until the very end.
  • So, I guess I will put on some lotion
  • and some eye cream and then dry my hair.
  • I'm feeling a little discombobulated.
  • - [Kristen] And then she makes egg beaters with avocado.
  • I had doubts about these egg beaters
  • but now I still have doubts.
  • And I drop some on the floor.
  • R.I.P. Mr. Egg.
  • Alright, so adding the avocado.
  • Also, I just noticed that these egg beaters
  • have zero grams of fat.
  • So, I'm not sure how that's gonna taste.
  • - I slept until seven,
  • turned on the snooze, because my mom does,
  • for 10 more minutes and then it rang again
  • and then the second time, instead of snooze,
  • I just hit stop by accident.
  • So I accidentally over slept.
  • The second time I hit snooze.
  • I'm about to watch the news for like a second
  • and then jump in the shower.
  • It's eight o'clock.
  • - I brought my hot rollers out
  • and I'm gonna put some in my hair
  • for a little extra zhush.
  • Ironically, enough I've had these curlers
  • since I was in high school.
  • When I used to live with my mom.
  • So while these are heating up,
  • I'm gonna deviate from my moms routine just for a second,
  • and go make coffee.
  • She didn't really mention
  • when she has her coffee in the morning
  • but from like living with her.
  • I know in here routine a little bit.
  • I think that she probably has her coffee at the office
  • or like right before she leaves.
  • - Just hanging out in my bra.
  • It's too hot to have a shirt on, anymore.
  • Now it's time for the moment of truth.
  • Wow, that's delicious.
  • Egg beaters and avocado, who would've thought.
  • I don't usually eat breakfast
  • and the reason why I don't,
  • is because I am now 45 minutes behind.
  • After that I was exhausted.
  • I have to get ready now?
  • I just like when on a run and made breakfast.
  • I'm done.
  • - Time to figure out how to get the news situation happening
  • because that's what my mom does when she wakes up.
  • So, I like turned on my TV.
  • I tried to change the source to like TV, like antenna
  • or whatever and like nothing would come on.
  • Then I opened my laptop to try to stream CNN.
  • That didn't work, they wanted money.
  • So, then, I was like okay I'm already late.
  • Let me hop into the shower really quickly.
  • For the eight minutes that my mom showers.
  • Got out, dried off, flossed and brushed my teeth.
  • Now, I'm toning.
  • I'm actually very proud of her for toning.
  • When I think of skin care, in my head,
  • first thing that comes up is Olay
  • 'cause she just used it for forever.
  • And then I'll figure it out after that.
  • So, I took some creative liberties.
  • Why don't I listen to news on the podcast
  • while I lotion and get ready for work.
  • So, I did that.
  • - So, then I jumped in the shower.
  • She says that she washes her hair every other day
  • but I kinda assumed that this was gonna be like a wash day.
  • I just realized that my mom doesn't have deodorant
  • listed anywhere.
  • Sorry, everyone I meet today.
  • Deodorant is not on this list.
  • Honestly, the hard part came with the curlers.
  • Trying to plug in these curlers,
  • a styling tool I have not used
  • since the Clinton administration.
  • I hope these work.
  • - Nothing like the smell of hot rollers in the morning.
  • So with this piece, I would typically curl it like this,
  • towards my cheek bones
  • but knowing my mom, who wants body, I'm going to curl it up.
  • I'm going to give myself a little boofun.
  • - One down, now I just.
  • Oh god, it hurts.
  • Kinda just hangs out there.
  • Just pulls your hair.
  • I'm amazed I still know how to do this.
  • She said, having no idea if she's doing it correctly.
  • - These are an integral part of Sharon's morning routine.
  • I made my lunch today.
  • I made Pat's lunch today,
  • 'cause that's something my mom left out
  • that she used to do when, you know,
  • my brother and I were living at home.
  • So, I just peppered it back in.
  • - Tada.
  • I should be at work by now according to the schedule.
  • I look like I'm about to chase after someone
  • with a frying pan.
  • Now, we wait.
  • - Also, things got sticky
  • because my mom just does things in like an odd order,
  • an order that I'm not used to doing things in.
  • She gets dressed and puts shoes on
  • before she goes to like put on jewelry or do her hair.
  • Shoes is the absolute last thing I do
  • before I leave the house, so that through me off.
  • Also, this is the outfit that I chose to wear.
  • That was reminiscent of something my mom would wear.
  • Hey mom.
  • She's a pants wearer.
  • She doesn't ever do dresses really,
  • unless it's like summer time
  • and she's going somewhere cute or special
  • and usually a longer quarter length sweater
  • and then a jacket.
  • I did not wear a jacket today.
  • Let's keep it real folks, we're in LA.
  • - I think it's time for makeup.
  • Okay, so I've done my brows, just a little blush,
  • and mascara and some lipstick and we're good to go.
  • And around that time is when the delirium kind of set in.
  • It's me.
  • Delirium.
  • Mom's morning makeup routine done.
  • Now, lets go wash these towels 'cause they're filthy.
  • - Mkay, time to do makeup,
  • which theoretically should take eight to 10 minutes, mom.
  • My mom doesn't use primer which is like a problem for me
  • because my pores are so big.
  • Hope my little pores are thirsty
  • 'cause they're about to get a drink of foundation.
  • She has concealer around her eyes and nose
  • and then she does foundation.
  • We actually use the same foundation, weirdly.
  • And then she lines her eyes with pencil
  • and then like half under this eye.
  • I'm not good at pencil, I need a paint brush.
  • And then she uses the same pencil to line her brows.
  • I think this was around the point
  • where I was like this is gonna look not great on me.
  • See look my mom looks really cute.
  • My mom has a mole right here, that she fills in
  • because she wants people to see it's pronounced but
  • I don't really have a mole here so I just drew one on.
  • I'm like Cruella de Vil.
  • Give me those puppies!
  • She like rubs some lipstick under her cheek bones for blush
  • and also she rubs in lipstick.
  • - All right, I'm heading out.
  • I'll probably get to work like fifteen minutes late.
  • - I've got my beves.
  • I've got bevy number one, bevy number two.
  • All the dishes are clean, the towels are almost done.
  • I just have to go and brush my teeth
  • and we're off to work.
  • Now, I know what you're thinking.
  • This (beep) leaving her house with the curlers
  • in her hair.
  • What is she doing?
  • Well, that is the Sharon Lionel way.
  • Sharon, just like myself, has fine hair
  • and she believes that we keep the curlers in
  • to the very last second
  • 'cause if we don't, the curl will fall.
  • I am running late.
  • I was supposed to be at work at 7:30.
  • It is 7:30 now,
  • but you know what I was talking to you guys half the time.
  • - Da da da da da.
  • Wait is that lipstick?
  • Oh no, wait, it's the indentation from the clip.
  • Also, I just realized my mom brushes her teeth
  • after she puts on her lipstick like a monster.
  • What are you doing?
  • Okay, I'm finally on my way to work, four hours later.
  • I already sent her a photo of what I look like
  • and she was like, looks great
  • but a little too much blush.
  • And I was like, okay.
  • - My mom would never be late.
  • She's always punctual.
  • Hopefully, she doesn't watch this video
  • because then she be like, I would never be late.
  • Look at the parking lot this morning.
  • There is nobody here.
  • We have come to the the final step
  • in the Sharon Lionel morning process
  • which is called the car curl down.
  • It's when mom takes her curlers out in the car
  • right before she goes into work
  • and I'm gonna store my curlers in this tote that I brought
  • and hopefully my hair doesn't look too crazy.
  • Here we go.
  • Look at this little bounce.
  • Oh, these curls are so intense.
  • So there we are, this is what my hair looks like.
  • So much body, look at me.
  • I know what some of you are thinking,
  • Devin, why don't you put curlers in
  • the bottom half of your hair.
  • Um, because my mom doesn't.
  • She puts curlers only in the top to get volume.
  • My mom is a hundred percent gonna watch this video
  • and be like, your hair looks so cute.
  • Why don't you style your hair that way.
  • 'Cause I don't wanna wake up at four, mom.
  • I just can't get over this mom hair.
  • It's perfect.
  • I'm not gonna lie, I kinda love coming to the office early
  • and being the first one here.
  • Ta ta da.
  • - So I finally made it to work.
  • I see that Devin has been here.
  • - Holding it down
  • - For hours, it's like 9:30.
  • I have my sparkling water.
  • I've forgotten to get some from home.
  • So, I'm drinking my sparkling water now
  • that my mother would be drinking at work.
  • She does.
  • (laughing)
  • She loves sparkling water.
  • (laughing)
  • - I will say there are some things about her routine
  • that I actually really like.
  • That I kinda really wanna adopt.
  • Her run first thing in the morning.
  • I love that she makes herself a healthy breakfast.
  • That part's great.
  • The rest of it sucks.
  • - I definitely think I'm going to wake up earlier.
  • I already wake up at like seven
  • but I really liked being here early
  • when no one else was around.
  • - The part of her routine that
  • I would like to incorporate into mine
  • which I used to do more often
  • but I've just been sleeping later and later
  • and just haven't had the time.
  • But just listening to the news podcast in the morning
  • while getting ready was like definitely helpful
  • and supper informative.
  • I did stay off social media this morning which was good.
  • - Trying our mom's morning routines.
  • - Lady tested.
  • - Lady, I get it from my momma.
  • - Lady, bright and early.
  • - Debbie approved.
  • (calm music)
