Since graduating I’ve been feeling like something is missing. Maybe it’s the structure of having to always be studying or working on a paper or project. It kept me busy and helped me enjoy my down time a lot. Now I don’t have that and basically go to work and then get home and chill. Thursday morning I was going through my old pictures and when I got to the pictures I took during the Fall of 2015, I grew nostalgic. I saw all the pretty pics I had taken for posts and missed keeping up Makeup & Flowers.
I got up that day and started reading a very interesting post (Plan you Blog Content like a Boss by Laura Rebecca Jones) that changed my Thursday from a lazy day to a very productive day. Keep reading to see how these two things shifted my week and views on my blog!!
So, first off, it’s Sunday and this is not a Sit Back Sunday post. Well, I decided to stop posting SBS and instead give a recap of my week and focus it on a theme. Changing to this allows me to share my week with you but also reflect on my week instead of just saying “it was just another normal boring week.” Of course, not all weeks will be life changing, but I believe we can learn something everyday and, of course, every week.
The other reason for this shift is because I think it will look more aesthetically pleasing to have different titles and pictures instead of “Sit Back Sunday #X” It will also make me take more pictures of what is going on around me.
Anyway, let’s get back to Thursday!! That day I decided to plan my posts a week in advanced instead of the day of or the day before. I realized that my absence on this blog was due to my lack of planning which eventually would lead to stress. I am hoping to better Makeup & Flowers by this new way of planning!!
I spent most of my Thursday taking pictures for the upcoming posts and afterwards, I felt super productive and excited for what is to come.
I also want to be more active on social media and while it is a bit intimidating for me (I’m kind of shy!!). I want to be more active because it will help me connect to you all and also better Makeup & Flowers.
