  • 🍃 Another day another flatlay 🍃 You have probably already noticed that I have started bullet journalling improve my productivity (minus the last couple of days) so I thought I’d share a little bit about that because I love it 🥰 -
I bought this @dingbatsnotebooks bullet journal last week and I currently use to to bullet point what I need to do each day. I’m waiting for the next month to start before I do monthly and weekly spread ✍🏼 -
I also track my mood buy using colours to symbolise how I’m feeling, this is just something I want to do for myself to see how certain things affect me etc... 🌈 -
I LOVE my instax printer it’s the best thing I’ve spent a stupid amount of money on 📸 -
Anyway, what do you do to keep track of your to do lists and other things? I also hope you’ve had a good Wednesday ✨✌🏻 -

  • 💚So the decorating is OVER💚*swipe to see all!*
This is the first photo I have ever taken on the actual day of posting so I thought I’d document what I actually look like right now after a whole day of decluttering my WHOLE room. I filled four bin bags of stuff I didn’t even know I had stored 😅
-
Honestly though, doing this to my room has made me feel so much better! Clearing out your room really clears out your head 💭 -
I am absolutely exhausted but very proud of myself (and my boyfriend) for completing this project in the space of three days ✌🏻
-
I will tag 🏷 the things I used, but I can answer any questions!
-
I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and bank holiday since I haven’t been here to be active 😌🙋🏻‍♀️

  • ✨Feeling weird because I’ve been spending time sorting out my room and doing other bits before I get my routine back and I feel guilty for not being as active Online and all that jazz HOW ridiculous is that...✨
-
Who else is like this? Although my screen time report was six hours a day which is also shocking! 📱 -
So, today’s caption is a little shorter but I would like to talk about staying engaged online but having less screen time! Who has some hacks or tips or anything like that 🙋🏻‍♀️ I watched someone on YouTube say they only spend five mins a day on Instagram and they still get good engagement and everything HOW 💭 anyway, comment below ☕️

  • 💕Happy Not So Chilled Sunday 💕
-
I do not look like this right now, I have white and green paint in my hair and under my nails and it will stay that way until I have finished ✌🏻💀
-
I have spend the whole day starting the process of my room transformation. An impulsive thought but one that is now halfway through... Who else really acts on impulse when it’s something exciting 🙋🏻‍♀️😂
-
The sickly pink wall is now white, and the wall behind my bed is now ‘emerald green’ I’m not sure what decor items to buy yet but going for a golden theme ✨ If that interests you... -
ANYWAY, I also have started making Tik Toks about the room transform because I LOVE watching them myself so, if you follow me on there you will be able to see the process ✌🏻(charlotteanndawson) 📸 -
I haven’t done anything on here today or on the blog but it’s okay... Tomorrows blog post is scheduled and life is good, and my bedroom smells like fresh paint 🎨 -
What have you been up to today? And do you like seeing room decor and transformations too? ☕️

  • 👓 Who else here has to wear glasses or some other form of visual aid 24/7 in order to see and live ✌🏻 I either wear these or contacts otherwise I would quite literally walk into the walls... -
These are the round gold frames from the Flowers collection I think it is? The Drew Barrymore one 💐 I’ve always gone for plastic thick glasses so I decided to tone it down for now, and I love them! The first pair of glasses I don’t mind wearing all the time 😅 Although I rarely post pictures of me wearing them because who can be bothered to fix the light reflecting off them all the time?? 💀
-
Anyway, today’s caption is short because I am exhausted after waking up at 5:30 this morning 🛌  Its been a good day though! Waking up earlier means more time to do things even if it’s just doing nothing ✨
-
Hope you’ve had a good Saturday although it’s been extremely windy and wet! Here’s to the bank holiday weekend 🍷 (I’m not drinking wine)

  • 💀This is obviously a photo from the other week because not a drop of effort has gone into my appearance at all for the past five days COOL STUFF 💀
-
I mean, I totally don’t actually care😊 The only reason I make an effort is to take photos and I haven’t done that this week either 😂 I guess I’ve had a real week off ish (still be blog writing etc...)
-
How has your week gone? If you ever need a chat my DMs are open! I hope you have all had a good week too, doing whatever it is that makes you calm and happy ☕️ 💭 I think I had a wobbly start but I have managed to solve my problems/figure out how to solve them 💕
-
Today is the first day using the bullet journal and I have actually ticked of SIX THINGS on my to do list so I’m feeling great. Even whilst sitting in sweaty post gym attire ✌🏻✨

  • ✍🏼 Today marks the start of me actually using a bullet journal and also learning how to be more creative with it 🎨 I hate not being productive; but I see being creative as the same thing SO what a good excuse to buy new notebooks and stationary to boost your productiveness and creativity in one go...
-
I ordered this notebook after seeing someone else use it on here and within ten minutes I’d ordered it so I guess Instagram really is a place to influence people no matter how many followers you have 😅
-
Anyway; I would love all the helpful tips I can get for spreads and ideas, so comment below your fave bullet journaling hack or whatever ✍🏼✨
-
I will be creating a highlights and keeping you updated 🌍 -

  • ☀️ Not going to lie, I have sat in the sun all day, probably given myself heat stroke and some burns on my back (because I couldn’t reach to put suncream there) and read my book ☀️
-
Just about to have a bbq for dinner and then go for a walk when it’s a bit cooler ☁️ -
However, today has been good even though it’s a wobbly Wednesday... My new Dr Marten sandals have arrived and I’m planning on doing a little shoot with them 🖤 and it’s also just been a fine chilled day that I think I needed...
-
How often do you give yourself a day just to do absolutely NOTHING?❣️
-
Comment how many times a week you dedicate a day to just pure chill time ☕️ -

  • ☁️ Totally thought I had already posted today but I hadn’t! Here’s a picture of something pretty and somewhere I’d rather be (able to actually go somewhere different) BUT it’s all fine. The suns been out today, I’ve caught a tan and more freckles and tomorrow’s and Fridays blog posts are ready ☀️ It’s Mental Health awareness (should be all the time) so my DMs are open for anyone who needs a chat (I probably need one sometimes too so if you need to vent, I’m all ears 💭)
-
I hope you’ve had a good Tuesday! Sorry this photo is late but ah well 📸

  • 🌈Monday that feels like a Sunday, so much so I forgot to tell you I have a new post on the blog! All about how to have a glow up at home... Not just physically, but mentally too 💭
-
Have you done anything during lockdown to give yourself a glow up? I’ve died my hair and my eyebrows and started blogging! That’s about it from me though 😂 Oh and I make the effort to take photos for the gram now and then ✌🏻✨
-
I think it’s important to not think you need to have a physical glow up. You don’t need to put make up on to be a better person, you also don’t need to have achieved anything huge either! If you have done a few things during this time that has made you feel better and happier, that’s all that matters ☀️ -
So, let me know in the comments what you have done for yourself during lockdown 🔐 💕

Bookstagram For Beginners – The Easy Guide

13/09/2019
bookstagram-list-ideas-help

#BookstagramLife

I started the bookstagram life a few years ago now… It took me a while to get used to it since I had no idea what to really post, or what to put in my captions.
Now I have learnt, you can do whatever you want really, just make it look nice…

First of all, I didn’t really know what I was going to post. I had no plan, no structure and no idea…

Bookstagram doesn’t have to just be books… It can be anything bookish, writing-wise, and even life wise!

Since writing full time and trying to get my name out there, I update my Instagram regularly with all kinds of posts, varying from personal ones, to writing ones, to purely books.

So, I am writing this post for you today to share my tips and tricks for taking photos, and ideas for captions and posts. Hopefully, you will find it of some use and will be able to integrate some of these tips into your account.

“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Post Ideas

Most of the time I just post however I am feeling that day.

If I have been clever, I will already have a backlog of photos I can. However, if I have been lazy, I’ll set up and take a picture of what I am currently doing.

Photo Ideas

  • Monochrome Books.
    Post a picture of books that are all the same colour, talk about what themes they have in common (if they do). Or, in contrast to that, post a rainbow picture, very aesthetically pleasing.
  • Books depending on the occasion.
    For example, around Halloween, you can post your favourite scary story, or Valentine’s day – Post your favourite love story.
  • Books in public places.
    Geotag where you’re reading! It’s fun and interesting, and you’ll most likely get a good photo.
  • Your reading corners.
    Do you have a cosy place to read? Or a place for inspiration? Post that on insta with the hashtag #readingnook #cosycorners or anything along those lines.
  • Your TBR pile (stands for to be read…)
    It’s cool to see what others are reading or thinking about reading next. Share the books on your pile and ask for recommendations to spark some conversation.
  • Food/Coffee
    Everyone looks a little coffee and food pic here and there. You can pretty much squeeze some books into anywhere and get a bookstagram worthy image. Also because who doesn’t like books and coffee?
  • Bookish things.
    By this I mean, candles, mugs, props, fairy lights…
    All can be included in your photos; some people even have their own shops where they sell their own!

Caption Ideas

  • Books reviews… Obviously!
    Make your reviews more interesting by adding emojis, maybe a different point of view/angle.
    You don’t need to go in-depth here if I’m honest, I hardly ever read the super long captions. A short and to the point summary does the trick. In return, you will probably get some feedback from others who have read the same book.
  • A quote from the book you are reading.
    You’ve probably already told everyone what you’re reading by now, so insert a quote that stood out to you. This may even influence someone else to buy the book.
  • Monthly Updates.
    Share what you read that month, what theme you followed (if you did).
    Add a star rating to each book, which ones you loved/didn’t.
  • Do a QUOTD (Question of the day).
    Ask your followers your most burning questions! Stick to the theme of books, writing, literature etc though.
  • Life updates.
    Don’t forget, you’re a real person, and so are your followers! A little life update or a #meetthebookstagrammer post will boot your recognition as a person, not just a reader.

Days of The Week Inspo

Sometimes it can be easier to create a days of the week plan, just so you know exactly what to post.

Hashtags are super helpful when posting as it helps your images be seen because it kind of connects you together with everyone else who is posting the same sort of stuff.

A good blog to read for WAY more hashtag inspo than what I have provided is – www.theriversidelibrary.com

Monday –

I love a good #mondaymotivation
Besides the fact its the start of a new week, it may also be the start of a new book! Share your plans for the week, what you want to achieve, and where you’re going to start.

Tuesday –

You can go down the path of a #tuesdaythoughts or #tuesdaytransformation.
What did your insta look like a month ago? Compare how far have you come/improved?

Wednesday –

During this time of the week, I like to reflect on the week and rethink how the rest of the week will go. So, a #wednesdaywisdom or #wednesdaywellness hashtag is a good place to start.
Share something you have learnt about yourself, or what your most recent read has taught you.

Thursday –

#throwbackthursday is a classic but you could also do a #tbr or #thoughtfulthursday.
Along with the #feels hashtag, you can also interject a little bit of self-help advice here, or maybe spark conversation with others about what they are reading, or what their thoughts are about a certain topic.

Friday –

#Fridayfeels is easy to remember.
It’s the end of the week! Without a doubt, the best day of the week for some of us. You can talk about what you have done, what you have achieved. Maybe even go over your goals for next week! Recap over the book/s you have read, how did it make you feel?

Saturday –

#saturdaymornings to share some weekend motivation or #saturdayselfie to show your followers you are a person…
I tend to always forget to post on Saturdays, so having old photos ready is helpful!

Sunday –

The end of the week, and time to chill! #Sundaychills #Sundayslumber
Take a photo of you and your books looking all cosy with coffee and snacks, maybe even share what film you are watching etc (my favourite kind of bookstagram post). Furthermore, you can drop another weekly overview in there too.

Finally, we have come to the end!

I hope all those random bits of information help you at least get started with your bookstagram journey! When you have created one, comment your link down below!
