  • 🍃 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 📸

Comment below one thing from today that has made you happy your that you’re grateful for 💕

  • 🌈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 🔐 💕

Get Back Into Reading Books

02/08/2019
Get-Back-Into-Reading

Do you need to get back into reading? Have you lost the mojo, or fallen out of a routine? The slump has fully hit you.

It is possibly the most annoying this ever when you lose the reading bug. Especially when you know deep down that you love reading.

So, here is my post about how to get back into reading!

I have always read books from a young age, but only started to really love reading around age 16, when I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower… You can find this super old post about it here…

You are probably the same, being 16 is easy, you have time to read! Then life happens, and suddenly you are an adult with one million things to do before bedtime and reading just doesn’t fall into it.

I have been there, multiple times, and I always manage to pull myself out of it…

A few easy things you can do are;

  • Setting time aside/reading before bed.
  • Take a book and read that instead of scrolling through your phone.
  • Make time to relax and use it to read, not sleep midday.
  • Try different book genres.

Here are a few things to help you beat the curse and get back into reading.

Get-Back-Into-Reading

INSTAGRAM

This sounds like such a whatever comment, but I love my book/writing account I get to share the books I am reading, talk to others about them, and talk about my writing too.

I have connected and spoken to so many people that love books, reading and writing.

Instagram is a great way to get into a community that motivates you too. Its also fun to take cute pictures and share them online, sparking conversations about books as well.

I like to see others TBR (to be read) piles, because this gives me inspiration on what books to possibly buy next.

Its also good to read others reviews of books they have read; I have bought some books I have never heard of but purchased because someone I follow liked it!

The best thing about your insta account, is that its yours! Follow the accounts that red the same genre as you so their content will always be something you want to see on your feed. Follow anyone who inspires you, engages with you, and creates content that you love. Then do the same!

Here is my Instagram account below, as you can see, I am still growing it, but my pictures are improving, and so is my engagement.

I will do another post about Instagram another time, a more in-depth version.

GOODREADS

I did use to use Goodreads all the time, but I have gotten out of the flow! Although I have re downloaded the app, I am yet to update it yet… STAY TUNED FOR THAT LOL.

Anyway, I do think this is a great resource for some, you can follow people’s reviews, see what books the best right are now, what others are reading, what they don’t want to read. Once again, you can connect with others, share reviews and write your own.

Writing reviews helps me get back into reading because I like sharing what I loved and what I didn’t about a book, especially if I enjoyed reading it.

So, get into the flow of remembering things about books, maybe even taking notes, and write some reviews for your blog, or your Goodreads account.


Get Back Into Reading – Some Books to Try

Here are some books that I personally have read that helped me get back into reading.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I whizzed through this book when I was a teenager and I absolutely loved it.

Its short, sweet, and intense.

A book everyone should read.

Fantastic Beasts

These books are just great. Although they are written in script, it’s a fun new way to read, and it’s also quick.

Maybe it’s because I picture Eddie as the main character is what makes me enjoy them more.

Only Time Will Tell

My dad actually MADE me read this.

He went on and on about it for a while, until I caved and read a book I usually wouldn’t.

And I loved it.

I haven’t read the other ones, and I really want to.

But it did the trick to get me back into reading.

Where Rainbows End

Cecelia Ahern usually writes books that are always so lovely. Admittedly I don’t usually read books as ‘nice’ as this, but once again… I had been converted.

The story altogether is great, and the characters are easy to love.

It did take a while to read, but opened up a different genre for me.

Normal People

LOVED READING THIS.

I don’t need to say much, just read my review here. 

Roar

Currently reading this and its fair to say this is one of my all time favourites already.

A book full of short stories all about women.

Amazing.

(A review will be up when I am finished.)


If you need more help with reading, have a look at this post by Kristi Craig too! Covering a few different areas to what I have – The Wonder Forest – Get back into the habit of Reading

So, thank you for reading, I really hope this helps you get back into reading  (if it does, comment below!)
