SS: Sunday Saves (#54)

sunday-saves

We’re half way through the year already! I can’t believe it at all! Anyway, happy first Sunday of the month. If you’re not too familiar with my Sunday Saves, it’s a weekly series that I have started to talk about three blog posts that I find that week. Today I’ll be talking about a beauty product I’ve been watching for a while, work procrastination and a PR’s nightmare.

1) Rosie Loves Life (Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic Review)

Ever since I have started watching (and reading) Caroline Hiron’s, I’ve wanted to try Pixi products but I still haven’t got around to it. Sharon talks about how it has worked well with her skin and it’s definitely further up on my wishlist now.

2) The Nerdy Me (How To Talk Yourself Into Doing Work In 5 Easy Steps)

Procrastination is one big sucker, isn’t it? When it comes to blog post writing, this hits me about 80% of the time. I know what I want to talk about, but then this cloud just appears and my motivation leaves. I get stuck because I don’t know how to start a certain post then I start thinking about everything else I should be doing instead. Leta gives us five top tips on how to reduce this, and this can be included in areas of your life like your job, your school work or even household chores.

3) Reinventing Neesha (Blogging for Freebies – A PR’s Worst Nightmare)

I remember reading this during the week and I was shocked at how some people could actually email PR’s with these types of message. By just sending your address and saying they want free stuff; the absolute cheek! Neesha tells us what she has seen working for a PR company and it’s interesting reading for sure!

That’s all from today’s post; thank you so much for reading and if you are interested in reading more of my Sunday Saves, you can click right here and you can read the other fifty three Sunday Saves.

SS: Sunday Saves (#48)

Good morning and I hope you’re having a great Sunday so far! I can barely believe it’s almost the end of April already! I feel like I was just blogging about Christmas not too long ago. Anyway, we’re two Sunday Saves away from the big 50 which I can’t quite believe either, but it’s such a lovely series to do, and if you haven’t caught up with it yet, you can click here and you’ll be taken to every single post in the series so far.

Today I’m talking about the emotional connection we all seem to have to Monday’s, how to overcome digital distractions and the six stages of procrastination

1) What Gemma Did (Monday Motivation: Mondays Don’t Suck)

If you think Monday’s suck and it is your most hated day of the week; one, you need to change your mindset completely and two, you need to read Gemma’s post on why Monday’s aren’t the worst after all. She makes some really good points about putting the actual day into perspective and how it can be seen as a fresh start for you and your goals. I can be quite guilty of treating Monday as “Ugh, not again” but even I’m working on trying to flip my perspective on that.

2) Thirteen Thoughts (How To Overcome Digital Distractions)

Digital distractions are the worst especially when you need to work online to get your work done. Paula gives us a few recommendations on what to do when you’re getting distracted by fifty browser tabs (Okay, maybe not 50, but a lot of browser tabs!) or maybe you can’t stop looking at your phone because it keeps going off every two seconds. I especially love her app recommendation so I think I might have to give that a go, it sounds quite adorable (and productive, obviously!).

3) Artsy Teen Blog (The 6 Stages of Procrastination)

Maya’s post is so on point! She talks about the six stages of procrastination and I couldn’t agree more. You’ll have to read her post for yourself to see what they are, but even the little illustrations are so cute!

Well that’s all for this week’s post. Thank you for reading and if you have any thoughts on the posts, make sure to leave some comments on their blogs and spend the love! ❤
