In early 2020, the Netflix documentary series Cheer took the world by storm. As if overnight, everyone I know was suddenly rooting for a college cheerleading team from a small town in Texas to make it all the way to Nationals in Daytona Beach. We caught up with one of the show’s breakout stars, Morgan Simianer, who is back in professional cheerleading after her time at Navarro College. These days, Simianer is busy balancing her time between cheer practice and work obligations as a social media and television personality.
Keep scrolling to see how Simianer gets herself mentally and physically prepared for a typical workday.
A typical morning for me starts with me waking up around 9 a.m. On the days when I don't have any early work obligations, I tend to sleep in as much as possible. I'll lay in bed for about 15 minutes and just let my body wake up more. During that time, I'll cuddle with my cat and jump on social media, or I'll FaceTime with friends and family. Once I'm up, I'll make my bed and brush my teeth with Crest 3D White Whitening Toothpaste.
One thing you should know about me is that I love to start my day by getting chores like vacuuming and wiping down the countertops done around my apartment. It really helps me get mentally ready for everything else I need to do during the day.
If I have interviews to do, I'll will quickly shower before getting my hair and makeup professionally done. I love trying beauty products and always find new go-tos for my everyday natural makeup look. Some of my favorite brands include Too Faced, Milk Makeup, L’Oréal, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Fenty Beauty, Nars Cosmetics, and Urban Decay.
When it comes to hair, I love to accessorize, so I was thrilled to have collaborated with Scunci and Conair on a line of the cutest products.
After I'm done with my interviews and work obligations, I will head out to run errands. Most of the time, I'll head to the grocery store, but today, I need to drop off some things at the post office before picking up lunch for myself.
In the afternoons, I'll try to mark as many things off my long to-do list before getting ready for cheerleading practice at night.
