Meet Free Monday #16

7 April: A Day at HQ

I hope you enjoyed last week's planning inspiration - it was so lovely. Here we go again - Monday is here and April is already flying by! The weekend was over so quickly. On Friday eve Daniel and I spent the evening at home - we cooked and watched a movie. On Saturday I headed to I heart Market, followed by the Durban Blogger Meet-up. It was a lovely event and the goodie bags were HUGE and full of incredible things including a Le Creuset cappuccino set! On Saturday night we went to a party at our friend's house - we ate delicious burgers, enjoyed some wine and had plenty of laughs. Yesterday, I needed to sleep in which was bliss. In the afternoon we enjoyed a braai with my family - another delicious meal, followed by relaxing and chatting. 

The Working Week in Review / Last Week:
I spent a lot of time out the office last week which was disruptive, but necessary. I didn't feel as productive as I should have. I finished off twenty tape measure corsages for Fashion Nanny's Fashion Camp, as well as a giveaway. I also managed to get a host of thank you notes and gifts done which went out to workshop sponsors. Looking back at my planner it seems I abandoned it a bit, as I rushed around - I look forward to getting all in order this week.

The Working Week:
I really need to have a solid, positive week full of constructive office time. I have a few days scheduled in the office so I can get on top of admin etc. I'm hosting the Trinkets and Treasures Thrift Sale on Saturday and have to finish off some final admin and prep the items I want to sell. Please come to the event on Saturday and please spread the word. Either than that we need to make headway on quite a few projects including some blog makeovers, client newsletters, social media updates and workshop planning.

Things I'm excited about this week:
The Thrift Sale of course - it's exciting, but I also feel slightly anxious as I hope the marketing and sharing pays off.

What will challenge me this week?
To not get stressed. I'm quite a calm person or so I get told, but I can get anxious too just like everyone else. I like to keep a tab on it and to remind myself that I am in fact in charge rather than being weighed down by stress (definitely a challenge).

Personal Thoughts:
I'm excited to be heading back to yoga tonight as our regular instructor had to take some time off. I feel that yoga was helping me to be calm and focused so I hope to gain that feeling once again. This week my main personal goal is health. I often mention this one, but it's something that takes constant work. I have a few personal projects that I'm working on - one is finding a way to organise my accessories, toiletries and make-up. I have asked Daniel to design a cupboard for me so that I can have a dedicated space to house these things - now for him to find the time to do it.

I would really love to hear from you - any challenges or projects on your list?
