  • 🍃 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 🔐 💕

Life After COVID – Things To Do/Think about

15/05/2020
life-after-covid

Here comes the debate as to whether life should go back to normal again or if after all this COVID-19 business is over, we should create a new, better normal.

So, here is a post about life after COVID, things to do, and what to remember.

I am sure you have all been sitting and thinking about all the things you want to do when life goes back to normal.

At the moment we can go shopping for essentials, we have just started going back to work and we can leave the house for exercise.

We cant see our friends or other family members, we can’t eat out (we can get takeaways though.)

Not a lot. I might have missed something but really, there’s not a lot.

However, dwelling on this is doing us no favours so, let’s think about all the great things we are going to do when this is over.

Normal Life Right Now

Pre COVID-19, life was normal as we knew it.

So much has happened in the whole entire world since this pandemic. The question is, do you really want to go back to the way things were? For comfort reasons and to act as nothing happened, then yes.

But if we want to use this time to make some positive changes, then there’s no better time than now.

I don’t want to dwell on the things we should all change because you probably know what they are!
These things include the following;

  • How we treat our environment.
  • The way we are with other humans.
  • What we appreciate.
  • Humans can be selfish!
  • Spending too much money.
  • Not supporting others.

I am sure you can agree with some of those points, or maybe even add your own! We are all the same in some aspects, but we all want to change for the better. Who wouldn’t?

Life right now has changed drastically from the start of this year, you have probably already started noticing differences in the way you lead your life and the way others are too.

The New Normal

I cannot really tempt fate and imply what the new normal way of life after COVID will be, however…

If the following things could become the new normal, then I think the world will slowly become a better place.

  • Create LESS WASTE…
    I saw a photo of a KFC box on the floor outside when KFC first reopened. There isn’t any need for this behaviour. Keep the earth tidy!
  • Shop at local stores and small businesses.
    Since this has all happened there has been a lot of support for small businesses. This should continue! It is so nice to see people sharing online business and Etsy stores online. Instagram even have their own feature for stories now!
  • Take care of your own health better.
    A lot of us have been trying to stay healthy-ish during this time being at home. I have written a post about it here – Staying healthy during COVID
  • Live slower, but more meaningfully.
    Working and rushing until burn out has been proven not good for us! Having this time to slow down has made us appreciate our time more, and live slower.

A few other little things;

  • Be kinder to others, even if you don’t know them.
    Even just smiling at strangers, or helping others when they need it. Increase your good karma!
  • Stop holding grudges.
    If you have bad energy with someone and it is affecting your life, now is the time to sort it.
  • See your family more.
    If you have been stuck alone, or only with your household. You will have of course missed your friends and family. Arrange to see them more often!
  • Do things that truly make you happy.
    If you have been working in a job that makes you unhappy, try to get a new one. If you really want to learn something new, then start! Do what makes you happy.
  • Cut bad relationships.
    Only have people in your life who deserve to be there. This may sound harsh, but if you really want to increase your good vibes and all that stuff, cut out those who weigh you down.

Life After COVID
– Things To Do

When life does go back to ‘normal’ have a think of all the things YOU want do.

This could be anything! Theres no time like now.

  • Learn a new skill, start a new class
  • Quit the job you hate!
  • Travel
  • Save for your future
  • See friends more
  • Make more time for yourself
  • Enter competitions
  • Show off what you’re good at
  • Make a difference in your community
  • Do something every week that helps others
  • Eat out!
  • Go shopping in actual shops
  • Visit museums
  • See your family
  • Say yes to more (don’t take things for granted anymore)
  • Continue spending time outside
  • Keep cooking at home
  • Sort your spending habits

Everything you want to do will all be subject to what we can do and when. Of course, it is all subject to what you life, what you prefer etc…

I think we should all make some positive changes in our lives to make the entire world, and your own, a better place to be.

Have a think about the things you really want to do when life is back to normal. This could even be as simple as treating yourself!
Getting your hair done, nails done (I think a lot of us will be doing this).

Life after COVID
– What To Appreciate

Finally, I think the best thing to do overall, is to appreciate everything we have had time to think about.

Write down all of the things you have learnt during the last few months and the changes you want to make for yourself. I have already written a post about gratitude and journaling here.

We have all been on our own journeys even if it feels like we have been ‘in the same boat’… We have, and we haven’t. Everyone’s boat is different, and everyone’s path has been different too!

Anyway, I hope this post has been a cause for reflection, and I hope you are excited for a new beginning to come.

    We’re all looking forward to start our lives again when lockdown is over! It is so important that we still retain our human elements. I love that you’re trying to be more mindful of your consumption for the better of the planet and your body! I love the positivity from this post!
