The Cleaning Diary

Cleaning is perhaps one of the most boring tasks out there. However, as I now finally have a break from work, I can begin this process. Tackling the mess that is my life – and the state of most of my rooms or items – I have created a small diary to help me. This tracker, which I’m going to call the Cleaning Diary, was designed quickly to help me try and figure out my life. The mess has accumulated over the months, becoming a little overwhelming to even think about. It isn’t dirty, per se.

But rather than cleaning, I took the approach of “stuffing everything into a cupboard so you don’t have to look or deal with it”. This means I have bags, cupboards, drawers or boxes full of miscellaneous items. Paperwork is unsorted and everywhere. However, there is a break ahead of me, which is a good time to start tackling some of that mess.

Christmas Sale at kikki.K

One of my favourite planner companies in the UK is kikki.K.  It has opened up several stores around the UK, with a few in London.  I visited one of the London ones yesterday and was blown away by their current range.  I planned to only get one thing and ended up with a bit more than that.  However, it must have taken me over an hour to decide what I actually wanted to buy.  Because I wanted everything. 

They currently have 50% off on selected styles too.  I thought I’d take a moment today to share a few of my favourite items from this sale range.  If I had the money, I would buy all of these.  I am very tempted to go back and pick up a few more items for myself or for friends.  As a little treat to myself, however, I decided to get one of these yesterday.  (And a few other things outside of the sale section but since I love a bargain, lets focus on that stuff today).

My Christmas Planner

Earlier in Blogmas, I spoke about ways to get organised.  One idea was to make your own planner this Christmas, which is what I decided to do.  I added some pages to my planner, inspired from the Mrs Brimble’s Jingle and Mingle craft afternoon.  I thought I would share a few of those pages with you now, as I haven’t before!  It’s definitely still a work-in-progress.  There’s a few things I want to add, which I’ll add as I go along.  However, let’s show you what’s in there right now.  I haven’t included photos of every page, as I want to keep some things hidden (for example gift ideas!).  But it gives you the general gist of what it currently looks like!

Getting Organised this Christmas

I can’t believe it’s December already, I definitely am not ready for Christmas… are you?  We’re only a few weeks away!  It’s prime time to get organised for Christmas – otherwise nothing will be done!  I’ve brought the odd thing or two, almost got all of the ideas for gifts sorted.  But if you’re like me, you may also be really behind with this year’s Christmas planning!  I did a bit of a search to find some products to inspire me to get organised.  More importantly, organised quickly – as there isn’t much time left.  I found a few products that I wanted to share today and came up with three different options for you to get into your Christmas planning.  Let me know if you find any of them useful too.

Mrs Brimble’s Jingle and Mingle

I’ll be honest, my favourite kind of events to go to these days are – without a doubt – the stationery, planners and craft events.   They are amazing.  It’s a room (or several rooms) full of likeminded people who all just want to talk stationery or get crafty.  Everyone you meet is so generous and kind.  People swap their unused products with each other.  They share their washi or sticker collection.  I’ve met a lot of amazing people from these events.  The minute the event finishes, I already start looking forward to the next one.  Yesterday, I went to an event just like this – Jingle and Mingle.  It was a small casual style event, which makes it really relaxing and really good fun.
