I was reading through some blogs about the gratitude project. I really love this idea and have decided to do this for a month to see how far I get.
You can see the start of mine on the spotted post it note, which I will keep a weeks worth and write them into my notebook on sunday to help review the week.
I have exams coming up and was meant to create a study plan and print past exams which I haven't done but will be this afternoon :)
Yesterday I celebrated one of my best friends birthdays by walking around Windsor Markets and Lunch at The Church Bar -lovely day out :)
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

I was reading an article in last months Cleo magazine about skincare tips. Australia is getting colder and wetter with each day coming into winter.
The article suggested that we should start to change our cleaners as the months get colder.
The aurthor of the article writes that if you use a foaming cleanser, you should move to a milk cleanser.
If you are using a milk cleanser move up the scale to using a cream cleanser and if you are using a cream cleanser, good job! Stay where you are.
I thought this was really intresting information and upon reading this I have progressed up the chain to a milk cleanser. I am hoping to find a lovely cream cleanser as winter hits. I have noticed a drastic result in my skin from this time last year to now.
I guess it would also make sense to reverse the steps as the warmer months approach.
So there you have it, small changes make a difference. :)
I've never heard of this award, but it sounds like fun. :)
So I have to write 11 random facts about myself and answer questions set by Ella.
Here are my random facts;

I know a lot of the blogging planner community loves it. I however do not. I think it's childish, and I am sure I stopped liking it after I turned 10. I also do not like the whole Japanese cutesy sticker thing either.
So there you have it, I feel slightly better now. I feel like everyone and their mothers love Hello Kitty, sadly I do not.
but I can't be the only one right? What is that one thing that everyone loves, that you do not?
Now I will continue on my merry way :)

Wow 20 weeks into the year!
This week I decided to try a different layout. This came from The Homemakers page.
I love love love this layout! I wish filofax would produce this format for personal sized planners. I hate printing and cutting.
It's great because it gives me a really good visual sense to my week.
It also allows more room for colour coding!
As you can see, green is an action task i.e drive, catch train etc.
Pink is a busy time, I look at it like blocking out that time period. I love this idea it is something that I used to use in my office job on outlook. I imported the idea into the week. I think it worked really well.
It was great to block out time on Tuesday to complete my econ revision...I prob wouldn't have done it if I hadn't planned for that block out session.
The yellow highlighter represents uni work that has a time frame but is not specific to a set hour.
I love the todo list under each day, I have ticked some tasks, because I feel like a to do list should have a tick beside it. However I don't think I like the look of the ticks. Maybe if I highlight them.

As I get busier I seem to stop using my Filofax as much. I'm sure this defeats the purpose of keeping a planner, does anyone else experience this?

Can you believe how quickly this year is going???
Last week was manic, assignments due, readings and quizzes!
I handed in my econ assignment, I will be lucky if I pass it! However so glad that is over!
I ended up pulling my first offical uni all nighter to complete the webpage and essay for my gender studies class.
Then the teacher decided to grant everyone an extension! Grrr...oh well its all over and done with!
On to the next lot!
