It's always time for tea

DIY Phone Case

My phone case has been looking so sad lately. It used to be wood-print with white dip-dye at the bottom, which turned into yellow-dusty dip-dye, and the whole thing has big, white, scratches on it from when I’d put it in my bag along with my keys. I wanted to get a new phone case and I’ve been looking for one in several stores lately, but it turns out it’s really hard to find a cute, inexpensive phone case for an older cellphone (I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII). And then it dawned to me; why not make my own? My old case is scratched, but otherwise perfectly fine, so why not just use it as a base for a DIY phone case? So that’s exactly what I did, and I think it turned out really nice.

Plan Like A Pro: My Planning Method & Tips

Planning your time. Something that comes up somewhere during high school, and never leaves you afterwards. Especially if you work from home, like I do, to plan your time is extremely important, in order to get things done and stay sane at the same time. I like to think that I’ve gotten the skill of planning down pretty well, I believe I’ve figured out a good way to optimise my productivity and how I use the time I have available. I’d like to share with you just how I go about planning my time, and my most useful tips, to hopefully help you out with your own planning.

I like to plan digitally. The biggest advantage of planning digitally is that everything is reversible; you don’t have to scratch out or white-out any activities that have been re-scheduled, which really helps keep everything looking nice and clean. I also like that when I plan digitally, I have my calendar, editorial calendar, to-do lists and notes all with me on my cellphone (which I carry everywhere anyway), without any added weight and always. I can also access them from any computer anywhere, since they’re all online, and they can’t get lost. The main tools I use are Sunrise, which I use as my personal calendar, Wunderlist, which is my to-do app of choice, and the WordPress Editorial Calendar plugin, which I use to schedule my blog posts.
