How are we already halfway through 2021!? I don't know about anyone else, but my brain refuses to understand the notion of time anymore.

How are you planning to spend the rest of the year? I like to use June as a way to reflect and figure out the plan for the next half of the year, and it'll be the same this year. I may share some of my planning and thoughts along the way along with new projects and happenings too.

Mid-Year Productivity Reset Tips

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m trying to understand how we’re already in June 2021!? Honestly, life since March 2020 has felt like a blur and yet somehow… we are here now.

I figured it’d be the perfect time to list a couple of tips and tricks I’m taking on board to have a better grasp of 2021, as I felt the first half was focused more on just coming to terms with the new direction the world and life was settling into (yes, a somewhat delayed reaction). I really enjoy consuming content focused on productivity, mindfulness and mental health because it goes hand-in-hand with being able to output quality, entertaining work from my side.

My Life Right Now

Hello everyone! I often like to have these summary posts of my life as a nice way to reflect back on life. I’ve taken a couple of days off to reenergise and rest, so you can best believe I’ve spent the time doing all my fave things. It’s always important to take a step back and do the things you enjoy for instant happiness.

My Work-From-Home Desk Setup

Hello everyone! I’ve been posting a lot about my current work setup and stationery on Instagram and thought it would be nice to share some of the photos here too. This is in no way near to being finished, it’s definitely the early stages but felt it’d be fun to document the process of getting it “aesthetically pleasing”.

 

Prior to the current pandemic, I didn’t have a work space I really liked so while a lot of us are still working from home I figured it’d be a better time than any to focus on creating an idealĀ little area to be productive. Please don’t expect anything professional, I’m here for a simple, cute aesthetic – think pastels, Disney and the like.

How I’m Keeping Sane During Lockdown

Hello everyone šŸ‘‹šŸ½ How are you doing? Today we’re nearing the 50-day mark in lockdown for South Africa, and it’s a surreal moment when you think about it. It still blows my mind that this is our current new normal for the foreseeable future. Who would have ever imagined last year this time that 2020 would see all of us inside, cautious and restricting interaction. Wherever you are, I hope you’re safeĀ ā™„

 

Today I wanted to share a quick list of things I’m doing to help keep me distracted and sane when I’m not working my 9-5 from home:

 

My Life Right Now

I know many people choose to micro-blog over on Instagram, however I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the traditional blog platform. I love sharing photos and thoughts together here because I tend to often look back at how things were. So here we have a throwback to an old style of post I used to love doing with snaps from my phone.

Hello, 2020

Hello world, hello 2020. It’s been a minute since I was last around these parts. While I missed it, it was hard to come back when my attention had to be elsewhere. I won’t get into it, but with a new year here it’s time to make time for everything I want, and more.

 

Bloom and Fab! on 4th Avenue in Parkhurst

I wanted to title this Life Through My Phone, but is it if it only comprises of four photos? Those are the important questions, but let’s be honest… I just want to talk about the two cute places I visited recently.

 

I recently went for a little (read: long) catch up with a friend and we ended up going to two super cute places on 4th Avenue in Parkhurst – literally littered with adorable places to visit.

2019: New Year, New Me

Is it too late in the month to be writing about thoughts and feelings for 2019? No, I don’t think so. January is one of those reflective months where you’ve still got a foot in the previous year as you mentally navigate the new calendar year.

 

I played around with the idea of sharing some of my hopes for 2019, and as you can tell have decided to let a few of them live online. I think it’s nice to be able to read back at what you hoped for and have a sense of accountability for what you were feeling at that time. So, here’sĀ some of what I’m thinking:

Best coffee places in JHB

Don’t expect me to rattle off a list of places that are super unique or quirky, because I’m still looking for that. Rather, these coffee shops are places I frequent to go and work or for a little catch up over endless coffee and cake with friends on weekday evenings.

 

I’m not an entirely difficult person to impress, so these places are quaint spots that have a charm – even thought they’re totally considered mainstream.

Life in Photos | #1

I take a lot of photos, most of which don’t even end up on Twitter and Instagram. Sometimes I get lazy to post a snap ASAP or have another photo in mind, can you relate? So I figured it would be nice to compile some of the photos together and share over here. Even though most of my updates go across my social media platforms, I still enjoy sitting down and writing my thoughts down – it’s the writer in me.

 

Well, let’s take a look at a few photos from over the last few weeks.Ā
