    ♥ Getting Organized With Ease ♥

    I don’t know about you but I have been feeling majorly stressed lately. Between blogging, consulting, working + traveling, life can get a little crazy leaving me feeling overwhelmed + beyond drained – (ugh) #TheStruggleIsReal 

    So what’s a girl to do when she feels a little out of control? GET ORGANIZED!

    While I am far from an organizational guru, I have discovered overtime some tools, tip + tricks that keep me on the right track to achieving everything on my to-do list with ease!

    1. PLAN OUT YOUR SCHEDULE

    This may seem obvious, but I realized I would commit to attending events, meeting up with people, hoping on calls etc without ever cross referencing a calendar or writing it down. Super silly BUT when you are going a million miles a minute, sometimes taking a moment to stop, check out a calendar + put in your obligations really helps keep you on track for what’s to come.

    Since I began putting everything in my phone calendar, my stress level has significantly went down. Now I can clearly see what I have planned, helping me to not over commit to activities AND I created a color coating system to organize blog obligations vs personal appointments vs work meetings + calls.

    If you don’t like referencing a calendar on your phone, I would suggest a planner but a small one that you can bring with you everywhere you go, this way you can easily reference it + stay on track. I personally love Erin Condren Planners or my iPhone iCal.

    2. DECLUTTER

    OK, I am pretty bad at this when it comes to my wardrobe but when it comes to work + the rest of my home, I LOVE to declutter and organize. I am constantly looking through my desk, cabinets, computer + more to clean up and organize what I need vs what I don’t!

    For my computer I use programs like ‘Clean My Mac‘ which helps clean + delete old unused files allowing your computer to run more efficiently and remove excess clutter.

    For my home + office, I will once a month go through cluttered areas + begin tossing what I don’t need OR I will organize it in a easier way to find and access (nothing is worse than feeling stressed + then not being able to find what you are searching for). I love filing organizers like large folders + then naming the tabs for bills, contracts etc to keep paperwork organized based on the category. Some great options are available at Target!

    3. MAKE LISTS

    I LOVE making lists!! As dorky as that sounds, I find nothing more satisfying than making lists of tasks to accomplish at work or home + then crossing those tasks off one by one as they are completed. To visually see what you have to do + to mark it off once finished is an easy way to lower your stress level + feel organized!

    You can of course do this with note pad on your phone or there are a ton of ‘Task‘ or ‘To Do Listapps, I just tend to prefer hand writing in a notebook 🙂

    Tips to Surviving Festival Season…

    missyonmadison, missyonmadison blog, missyonmadison instagram, la blogger, tips for coachella, tips for surviving festival season, how to survive festival season, festival season guide, what to bring to coachella, how to prepare for coachella, what you need to survive coachella,

     

    Spring is here and we all know what that means.. Coachella is right around the corner! The most anticipated festival of the year is finally among us and I’ve rounded up some helpful tips to help you survive your epic weekend in the desert! I mean.. what’s a better way to spend your weekend in April than dancing with your besties under the desert sun right?

    Portable Charger

    If you’re going to Coachella this year, you’ll want to show your friends back home all the fun they’re missing in Indio! You’ll be posting stories on Instagram and Snapchat and documenting each #OOTD all weekend! Don’t let your phone battery stop you from posting all the fun, take a portable charger! This is especially important if you will be using your phone to communicate with your friends in the festival! You don’t want to be lost in Coachella with a dead phone!

    Bandana

    A bandana is an essential for your Coachella trip! Let us not forget the festival is located in the desert which means there will be dust storms! Protect yourself from inhaling any dust by carrying a fashionable bandana to put over your mouth when those dust storms approach! Who says a bandana can’t be a staple for your outfit?

    Jacket/Sweater

    Like I mentioned earlier, this festival is located in the desert which means its hot during the day but it does get chilly at night! You won’t feel it when you’re dancing to your favorite artists in the Sahara Tent, but you’ll wish you had a jacket or sweater once you’re leaving the festival and you’re freezing!

    Reusable Water Bottle

    All the dancing you’ll be doing during the festival will have you parched! Not to mention how hot it will be during the day, you need to stay hydrated! In order to survive the weekend, you’ll need plenty on water. The festival has water stations where you’ll be able to refill your water bottle! Drink up!!!

    Comfortable Shoes

    You will be doing plenty on walking throughout the weekend! Comfortable shoes are a must for any festival, you need a pair that will keep you walking, running, and dancing all day + night! Your feet will thank you by the end of the weekend!

    A Good Attitude!

    Coachella is a place to have fun and potentially make new friends! Keep a good attitude throughout the weekend and you will have the most fun you’ve ever had in the desert!

    ♥ NEW YEAR…NEW PLANS ♥

    Since 2019 is in full swing, I wanted to kick off the new year with some new year’s intentions of staying on track + keeping organized! I don’t know about you but I am a visual person + even more so, I love writing. Writing things down whether it is a list of things to do, helpful reminders, little notes…they all make me feel organized, clear my head + give me clarity on what I need to accomplish. Nothing is more satisfying to me than making a list of things to do or accomplish + then I cross them off (or highlight them hehe :p) one by one as I complete them. It leaves me feeling a sense of accomplishment along with staying on track to complete my daily, weekly, monthly + yearly goals!

    One of my favorite brands for all things organization is Erin Condren. I had the pleasure of meeting her over the summer for the launch of her collab with Oh Joy + when I got my hands on her colorful planners + accessories I instantly become OBSESSED.
