Little Productive Things of Today...


This morning I woke up feeling more productive than usual so I decided it would be a good day to get a few things done. None of these are too drastic, they're all simple and easy to do but sometimes they're things that I might put off until I just have to do it. At the end of the day, I always feel much better after having ticked these things off on my to-do list. Here are a few small things I did today that made me feel a little more productive.

Do my load of laundry.
I've been doing my own laundry since I was about thirteen, mainly because my sister kept taking my clothes and I absolutely hated that. It didn't necessarily solve the problem completely, but it helped a little bit. Because I do my own laundry, I find it difficult to fill a full load without using up almost my entire wardrobe. I generally decide to do a load when I'm running low on underwear (I always have to have clean underwear). It's also a bit annoying having to wait for the laundry to be empty because there always seems to be a load on. But I love when I have my clothes back in my wardrobe all fresh and clean! 

Fresh Bedsheets.
Ahh, the best feeling in the world... clean, fresh bedsheets. I like to change my sheets at least every week, though sometimes I go two weeks. This morning I had a shower, made myself some toast and tea, applied my lovely face mask from Frank Body, and put on some fresh bedsheets. I was already feeling more productive at this point.

Sort Out University Course.
This is the one thing that was actually quite important and I kept putting off. Because I am a full-time uni student I am eligible for Youth Allowance. However, because I switched courses from design to justice I had to update the information otherwise I wouldn't be able to receive the allowance. I had tried to do it online but there were too many issues. I kept putting off actually going into the office because it takes such a long time. So today, I decided to just go in and make sure everything was updated and all information was correct. Now that is all done and out of the way!

Clean Makeup Brushes.
I'm generally pretty good when it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes. Especially any brush or sponge that I've used a liquid foundation with. I do tend to go a couple of uses without cleaning when I use a powder product or eyeshadow. But every couple of weeks I will deep clean all of my brushes even the ones I haven't used because they collect dust and I don't want to be putting that on my face. Because I have skin that is very prone to acne (it's actually cleared up a bit in the last week so I will be doing an update on how, and if, cutting out dairy affects my skin), I do like to try and do everything I can to avoid triggering it. So clean makeup brushes is a must.

Write a Blog Post.
When I write a blog post I always feel a bit more accomplished, and here I am writing a blog post about the little things I did today that made me feel more productive. 

Go to the Gym.
Okay, so I haven't gone just yet. BUT I am ready to go, as I type this I've already changed into my gym clothes and have everything ready so I know I will definitely be going!

Alright, so those were some small productive things I did today. I find that laundry, fresh sheets and going to the gym are the first things that come to mind when I need to do something. What are some things you do to feel a bit more productive? I'd love to know!

  1. I HATE cleaning my make-up brushes, so much so I would much rather not use make-up for a while instead of clean them!!

    1. I don't blame you at all! If it wasn't my skin I don't think I would keep on top of it either. Sometimes if I really don't feel like cleaning my face brushes I'll just use my clean hands to apply foundation and concealer (looks nicer when I apply it like this sometimes too!) Thank you for reading Charlotte! xx

  2. Glad you've had a productive day! I've actually slept most of the day today, so it hasn't been as productive for me, haha. It's the smaller things that make me feel more productive like changing my bed sheets (same as you) and cleaning my room. Although I always put them off and leave them until last minute! xx

  3. I really wish I cleaned my makeup brushes more often. It's the one thing I feel lazy to do.

    1. My sister is the same but she also doesn't have bad skin. I feel like because my skin breaks out from the slightest bit of dust I have a strong motivation to keep them clean! x
