A Glimpse at My Weekly Planner
I’m an organised person at heart. I like my routines and rituals and most of all my to-do lists and planners. If I didn’t have a planner, I’d undoubtedly forget half the important things in my week.
Today I want to give you a glimpse of my weekly planner for November 6 to 12. This planner covers my skin care ‘to-do’s and my blog schedule for the week. My life at the moment is pretty hectic, and this week is no exception (I thought this post would be a nice easy segway into the cool things I have lined up for next week!).
For starters, this week is sandwiched between two final exams for my uni degree. Then I’m also busy with bridesmaid-ly duties for my best friend’s wedding in 5 weeks (eee!). I use this planner to keep note of the blog posting structure for the week and any skin care I want to keep up with.
If you like the sound of any of the posts coming this week then don’t forget to join my mailing list so you don’t miss any of this content! Let’s dive in!
Monday: I have an Arabic final exam at 9am on Monday morning. Afterwards, I’m planning on giving my skin a bit of a treat after the rough weekend (read: alcohol) I had celebrating my cousin’s wedding. That’ll involve remembering to drink water, as well as a good exfoliate and moisturise during the day. On Monday evening I’m planning to release my skin care routine post! It’ll include some pictures and a detailed description of the products I love and use at the moment. Keep an eye out!
Tuesday: On Tuesday I plan to write Wednesday’s post in advance. I like to do this so I always have something to go even if something unexpected happens. I also find it easier to proofread with fresh eyes the next day.
Wednesday: I release my second post of the week – this week I am hoping to do a guest post on another blog, all about sunscreen in cloudy climates. Very exciting! (Editor’s note from the future: find it here!) I like to do an oil massage + clay mask mid week to perk up my skin and keep my spirits up.
Thursday: As with Tuesday, I’ll write the next day’s post. I also saw on the weather report that the UV will pick up on Thursday so I made a note to not forget to apply sunscreen.
Friday: I like to dermaplane (a fancy word for shave your face) once every week or two. I’ve set aside time on Friday to do it this week. I’ll also release a post about DIY Sunscreens and why they’re such a bad idea.
Saturday: A pre exam study session sheet mask will help keep my nerves to a minimum (I hope). While doing that, I’ll line up Sunday’s post too.
Sunday: Aside from lots of study and an early night, I’ll be releasing a post debunking the benefits of essential oils and explaining why you should be very cautious using them on your skin.
Notes: This week is my last of uni for almost 4 months! Really excited for all the free time I’ll have soon. I’m also going to try and squeeze in 3 gym sessions because I’ve been super slack lately and it’s making me feel lethargic. Finally, I have to remember to book an eyelash extension appointment for the wedding I’m in next month.
I hope you liked this short little post and enjoyed a glimpse into my week in blogging and skin care. If you’re interested in reading more about my daily habits, check out the overview of my skin care routine!
