  • 🍃 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 🔐 💕

15 Ways to Stay Focused and Achieve your goals

23/09/2019
stay-focused-with-writing

Stay Focused – Goals and Writing!

It’s hard to stay focused on your goals and when you have so many things going on in your life…
Because of life, we put things to the back, and then we end up in a circle of feeling unmotivated, and unfocused on what we really want.

Wanting to stay focused also applies to us who are writing.
Those who write set their own goals to achieve within certain time frames, word counts, and so on…

I am going to give you a few tips on how to stay focused, achieve your goals, and finish that story!

How to Stay Focused on Any Goal

This little section will help with anything you need to focus on. This could range from your fitness, self-help, to learning a new skill.

  • Write it down

Write down what it is you want to achieve, write it into existence! Once you have written something down; you have to do it. Whether it takes you a day or a week… Eventually, you will get it done.

  • Make a finish by date

By creating a finish date, you will manage your time better.
In the back of your mind, you will know you need to get a certain job done, and it will annoy you until you complete it. So, have a finish date, work towards one thing at a time, and get it done.

  • Reward yourself for being on time

When you have finished some work you wanted to have completed, reward yourself!
Book a day off, go out, or maybe just sit and chill out for an hour or so and get back to work afterwards.
It’s important to give yourself rewards and things to look forward too, otherwise, what’s the point in working so hard?

  • Motivate yourself

Keeping yourself motivated is so difficult, I know that.
It’s important to keep yourself going though, once you lose the motivation, it’s hard to get it back!
Stay motivated by being excited about your goals, look forward to where your hard work will get you. Just keep thinking about yourself, think about others who inspire you and remember you want to be there, or even further than they are.
Remember that the only way for you to succeed is to keep doing what you’re doing. Stay focused, stay motivated to create a better life.

  • Keep learning, research if you get stuck.

Don’t stop learning.
There is so much to learn and so much to do.
Stay up to date with social media, stay up to date with internet trends, blogging trends.
Also keep learning about what you want to do, for example, if you write, keep learning! There isn’t a cut-off point to information, your mind can keep going, and so can your skills.

  • Don’t quit. It will take longer! 

Such a big one! Do not quit.
There is literally NO POINT unless you really don’t want to do something anymore, or you have found another passion. Don’t quit because you have a hard day or even a hard week. Take your time, push yourself slowly. Stay focused. Quitting will only take you longer to reach where you aspire to be.

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

Dale Carnegie

Stay Focused When Writing

Here are the tips for when you are writing.
It can be so draining to sit at your desk writing for hours on end and not really wanting to do it. Thus, creating poor content, and feeling no motivation whatsoever.

  • Plan the story fully
    (Use my planning kit to help! It’s free when you subscribe!)

So, the planning kit that you receive when you subscribe is my super easy kit, you can plan and create a story in a day if you want too. I don’t always plan intricately, but I do plan so I know what I am going to write for each part.
That’s the best thing to do.
Once you reach a section of your book you haven’t even mildly planned for, that’s when you get stuck and think there’s no point. It’s helpful to even have a brief outline.

  • Have a finish date

Once again, stay focused and motivated by creating a finish by date. Think of it like you’re at school or college, and if you don’t finish in time, then you will not be rewarded, or you won’t pass the test. Finish your work on time for yourself.

  • Motivate yourself with inspiration

Create a mood board of the story you are writing, make it pretty.
I do this so I feel excited about writing my story. You can also stay inspired by doing other creative things; draw, or create music, or even write some poetry. It’s important to keep yourself inspired by your ability to create.

  • Keep a checklist

Create a checklist in order of priority.
For example;
plan book/write a cover/write the first paragraph/have 2,000 words written… etc.
Writing things in order of importance will keep you productive, and you will get things done!

  • Don’t pressure yourself, even writing 100 words in a day is still writing.

Don’t get mad when you haven’t reached your daily goal. It’s fine.
Just know that you will write double the next day or make up for it by being productive and completing another task.

  • Take breaks every twenty minutes

Don’t overdo it.
After a while you can begin to feel drained, you might go off track with what you’re doing and that’s not good!
So, take a break to refresh your mind, have a think and get back to it.
If you don’t feel you need one every twenty minutes, adjust the time to what you can personally handle. If you are on a roll with your writing, keep going.

  • Make sure you stay hydrated

Just because this is an important everyday life tip, and when you are writing in the zone, it’s easy to let hours pass without eating or drinking anything.
Have a bottle of water ready (a reusable one) and keep filling it up.

  • Get snacks!

Even the best writers have to stay full of food and nutrition.
Don’t eat a load of rubbish.
You have the time to create a healthy meal and healthy snacks, so do it.

  • Go for a walk/run to clear your mind

When it all becomes a bit too much, make sure you give yourself time away from everything.
Go have a breather.
Remember your mental health is important, so take some time off before you explode.
Go and be outside, get away from your writing environment for a little while and let your mind breath again.

Writing can also be a lonely thing, so if you’re struggling to be alone, I also have a post about that too here!

🔮 Wondering if all these good vibes will point me in the right direction with my Instagram and blog ✌🏻 Theres a few things I want to cover and maybe ask although I’ll do what I think is right anyway/what I want to do 💆🏻‍♀️😂…🔮 – I am recreating my blog to be more of a lifestyle blog instead of just about books and writing since my interests have changed WHICH IS FINE, but with that my Instagram will change too… I still have my own personal one so it won’t be personal posts (if you want to see my personal account then it’s in my bio ✨) – This is probably going to be the last planned book post, meaning it won’t be a book post then outfit then book then outfit etc… DON’T WORRY; I am still going to share content about reading, writing, blogging and all that stuff, just less often 👩🏻‍💻 – If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see on here then I would be grateful since I haven’t really posted anything other than books for years! Hence why the content is slacking because I’m not really enjoying it🤷🏻‍♀️ BUT PLEASE stay here to see this journey continue and change, I will be positing on my blog about the changes to come so I hope you all see it/read it/ share it!🙌🏻 – Thank you for following me and being here even if this isn’t the content you want to see (I understand) I am still going to be sharing photos with the same theme/aesthetic, it’s literally just not going to be as many book posts. Somehow I’ve managed to ramble on through an entire caption about the fact I won’t be sharing a lot about reading anymore, I can waffle 🧇 – Oh and if you haven’t read good vibes good life by vex king, are you okay? This book is a BIBLE for people who need to change their energy 🔮✨ – – – – – #bloggercommunity #bloggervibes #bloggerstribe #blogsociety #girlblogger #blogginggals #bloggersgetsocial #bloggersofinstagram #bloggersdiaries #bloggerlife #bloggerbabe #bloggerlifestyle #booksbooksbooks #bookishfeature #bookishlove #bookfeature #goodvibesgoodlife #vexking #crystalhealing #rosequartz #booksandflowers #instagramchange #blogchange #iamblogging #writingaboutlife #lockdown2020 #girlbossparty #girlbosses #sheboss #bossbabesquad via @preview.app
