How to Plan and Schedule your week: Time Management

My personal development journey began when I got tired of always being late for most things. I couldn't seem to accurately measure how much time I needed for travel and getting ready - I always assumed that it wouldn't take me that long. And I hugely underestimated the unpredictability of public transport, hence the need to allow for extra delays.

Last month I went live on my Instagram: @HiNatalieClaire and spoke about the process I go through to plan and schedule my week.

How‌ ‌Printables‌ ‌Changed‌ ‌my‌ ‌Life‌

If you ever wondered how I got my life together, it’s with the help of printables, calendars and my diary. I’ve been crazy about printables for about 5 years now and this is how it all began.

Life before Printables

When I started my personal development journey, I would write everything down. I had at least 3 notebooks in my bag to keep track of everything.

I had lots of To-Do lists, one for every day, one for the week and one for the month. I was writing a new list every day even though I hadn’t completed the last one. I didn’t even have a diary at the time, so I created my own timetable with pen and paper. (I don’t know how I survived without a diary)

This was my way of clearing my mind of all the clutter. Then one day I was reading about female entrepreneurs and I stumbled upon Michelle Rohr’s blog: https://www.secretowlsociety.org/ This lady has created a very profitable business selling printables online - I was fascinated by her story and I loved all the free printables she was g…

Vegan Challenge

I’m challenging myself to be vegan full time, here’s my experience so far.


The PLAN
The plan is simple, to ensure I eat 100% plant-based food in May and hopefully continue. 

I have wanted to go vegan since the beginning of the year but I have been struggling to just do it. So, I decided to challenge myself for a month and track my daily habits. (I downloaded a goal tracker too - every day I put a tick if I was successful or cross if I wasn’t.)


I’ve stacked my fridge, freezer, and cupboards with vegan food so when I'm home I have no problem sticking to my challenge. The real challenge is when I leave the house - that’s when the struggle begins.


I have already been a vegetarian for some time now so I understand the importance of having legumes - pulses and nuts for my protein and iron levels. I can’t live without having green vegetables on my plate as that has always been part of my diet since I was little. 



The Struggle
I have a sweet tooth, so I absolutely love desserts, cakes, and choco…

Hello 2019

I've taken some time out to think about the direction I want this blog to go in 2019. 


The most important thing for me is that my values are clear from the start. Going forward, I want to set the tone for my content and audience.
So let's start here: 
Things I've said Goodbye to in 2018:Hiding my Christian faith: I'm known for being all about productivity, personal development and a female engineer. As a woman of God, I am all those things and more.Fake friendships: being in a new city all I wanted to do was make new friends but as time went by I realised that some of these friendships do not align with my values and do not draw me closer to God. Wanting to control everything in my life - I need to trust God more, trust the process and walk in faith. 
2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV) For we walk by faith, not by sight.
What I'm saying HELLO to in 2019:
Serving my church and being of service in my community Focusing on what God is leading me to do: Things that align with God'…
