Hello my lovelies,

Today is going to be a super quick post of an OOTD that was worn a couple of weeks ago during a gorgeous hot summer day here in London.

The pattern of the dress is such a statement in itself, that there was no need for heavy jewellery or bold accessories. Strappy sandals proved to be the perfect accompaniment to the flowy dress, as well as a simple watch and an oversized handbag where I was able to store away a light cardigan - in the case of a chilly evening.

Dress - Zara
Heels - JustFab
Rose gold watch - Gucci
Handbag - Michael Kors
Aviators - Mango


Wishing you all a pleasant end to the weekend!

Lots of love,
Ana

How I plan my blog posts

I’ll be honest – I’m not the most organised person in the world. Frankly, I’m not organised at all. But occasionally when I have a big blog project coming up, I have to put the habitual laziness aside and garner the energy to plan and prep ahead in order to ensure that the final outcome is somewhat of a satisfactory standard. Granted, a lot of procrastination and dilly-dallying is typically involved - not gonna’ lie.
If you are somewhat lost on how to get started on your next blog project, hopefully, the following points will be somewhat helpful with your planning:

 1.
Take a step back and put your ideas on paper by creating a mind map. This allows you to brainstorm in a logical fashion by putting all of your ideas into perspective. Everything and anything that pops into my head that is relevant to the project, I always note down; even if it seems irrelevant at the time, it may serve a purpose at a later date.

Tip: Inject some colour into your annotations and doodles to make the whole process a little less boring – I love my bright markers, highlighters, post-its and smelly pens! Being organised is all about having strawberry scented scribbles.

  2. In order to get my creative juices flowing, I typically like to scan through my collection of magazines and cut out any outfits or fashion features that are currently trending. I then use these cut-outs to create a mood board, and I will use this collage to inspire me with an upcoming post.

Tip: If you don’t have the time or patience to create one yourself, Pinterest is a great alternative. You can save pictures under multiple themed boards and come back to them as often as you like for inspiration.

  3.  
I like to anticipate every scenario that may potentially affect my work. For example, as a blogger, I always have to take the weather into consideration for photography shoot purposes, therefore I have to religiously check the weather forecast. Other important variables to consider are memory card space, camera battery and shoot settings and locations.

I cannot tell you the number of times where I felt frustrated and wanted to retire as a blogger because I felt my work was not comparable or nowhere near as good as that of other bloggers.  However, I have learned to go out there and ask for advice from other experts in the field. I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by many talented people who are happy to help and the patience to teach. From photography to photo editing, to video taking and move processing, I have reached out to many people and the tiniest bit of advice has always been invaluable.

Although I still have a long way to go, I can already notice a significant difference from when I first started, and I know that over time I will just continue to get better and better (or so I hope so!).

That’s all, for now, folks! If you have any questions or would like me to elaborate on any of the points above please comment below with your questions!
