Procrastinating and planning


They seem like a rather unlikely duo but these two emotions took up residence within my head (and heart) recently and have been co-habiting rather successfully ever since.

While I have always had bursts of energy, followed by comfortable lapses that border on absolute laziness, this recent bout of procrastination and planning is mostly in relation to this little ol’ blog of mine.

I came to the realisation that while I had been giving this a red hot go, it was time to reflect on the direction I wanted to take the website in and have a little more focus on how I plan to get there.

I had a few hours of peace and quiet on the weekend after lunch with family, a leisurely walk and some light shopping (including the St Tropez Gradual Tan and this sweet necklace from Bird in a Tree, and decided to take some shots for the blog. But as I was snapping away I realised I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to use them for. I realised, if I didn’t know what I wanted them for why was I taking them?

That little thought stuck with me and I knew I needed a bit more of a plan. Winging it has it perks, but for a list-maker like myself a plan was the right way to go.

Like all good plans it has three main parts:

  • The first part of my master plan is to introduce a special end-of-the-month post as a way of reflecting on, and being thankful for, the month that has passed. The first post will be out at the end of the week so keep an eye out.
  • The second part is to keep up with the list theme of this blog by sharing some more of my favourite things with you. Keep an eye out for those lists and make sure to share your own things too, because I love hearing from you.
  • Finally, I want to share more of the posts and pictures you enjoy reading, so pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top comment below and let me know what you want. That’s right; this post is secretly all about you and what you want so don’t be shy.

    Hey Joni! I fell upon your blog coming from Kate’s ( and it’s lovely to see how you’re going through a similar ‘reflection/focus/direction’ thought space as I’ve been! I find talking it out loud with someone close really helps – good luck!
    PS. I love lists too 😀
