8 Ways to Kick-Ass Your Mondays

Monday Collage

How many of us suffer from Mondayitis?

*wildly waves my hand*

I used to really hate Mondays. Weekends were fabulous but come Sunday evening, I would have that dreaded feeling in my stomach because I knew come Monday, it’s back to work and the weekly grind would start all over again. Even though I’m working from home, it doesn’t mean I don’t feel the dreaded Mondayitis.

It took me a very long time to start to slowly break away from the shackles of Mondayitis. I’m relieved to say that while I haven’t gotten rid of feeling like poo on Mondays altogether, it’s really not so bad anymore. It took some planning on my part and a bit of work on Sundays but once I got those down to a T, Mondays started to flow much better for me, which meant that the days that follow continued more smoothly.

The problem with me is that if my Mondays are horrid, the days that follow usually aren’t much better. But if my Mondays are good, high chances are that my Tuesdays, Wednesdays and so on would be good.

Call it psychological mumbo-jumbo but that’s how I function. Believe it or not, Mondays are my most productive days now and it’s when I get most of my work done.

Your Mondays don’t have to suck. You too can be get your productivity juices kickstarted on Monday without feeling as though the weight of the world is on your shoulders.

Here are some tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the years, from when I was still working in the corporate world and now that I’m working from home. Get your pen and paper ready and let’s get started. No, really, you will need a pen and paper for this exercise, which will hopefully turn into a routine and end up kicking Mondayitis in the butt.

What Are Your Little Luxuries In Life?

What are your little luxuries in life?

When I started working many years ago, I told myself I’d indulge in little luxuries whenever I can because if I’m going to be working hard for my money, I should be able to treat myself every once in a while. These little luxuries help get me through the day, month or even year. I don’t mean splurging on an expensive designer handbag, shoes or the latest gadget but the ones that I can treat myself to once a day, once a month and even once a year.

These are the little things that I enjoy.

Skin Inc My Daily Dose Serum: Customised Goodness For Your Skin

Skin Inc Chlorella, Vitamin A, Ceramide Serum

I’ve heard good things about Skin Inc but so far, have only tried one of their products and that’s the Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask. That mask helped to save my skin from some issues I’ve been having a while back and it made me curious to try out their serums too.

Luckily for me, not long after I gave the mask a go (which I ended up loving), the kind people at Skin Inc reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to try their customised serums. I remembered reading somewhere about Skin Inc’s customised serums and I was definitely keen on giving one a go.

Bloggie Wednesday: Do You Only Blog Positive Product Reviews?

Bloggie Wednesday: Do You Only Blog Positive Product Reviews?

On Beautyholics Anonymous, you’ll get a mix of blog posts that are product reviews, opinion pieces, tips and tricks, lifestyle anecdotes and so on. If you’ve been reading my product reviews for a while now, you’ll know that I do not only write positive product reviews. In fact, you’ll often see me throw in a number of negative reviews as well. When a product didn’t work for me as well as I expected it to, you can bet your bottom dollar I’m going to tell you about it.

Nohttp://www.beautyholicsanonymous.com/beautyholics/wp-admin/admin.php?page=tm_coschedule_calendarw I know that there are plenty of beauty bloggers who do not write negative product reviews. If the product doesn’t work for them, they’ll choose not to mention it on the blog. This means that every product that is mentioned on the blog will be ones that are recommended by the blogger. This practice is similar in conventional magazines as well, where nothing bad about a product is ever mentioned (unless it’s really, REALLY bad). The objective is to make the blog (and said magazines) a positive environment as much as possible.

To be honest, it’s very hard for me to say that I’m 100% all right with that but really, it could just be me, which is why I’d like to hear your take on this. If you’re a beauty blogger, do you only blog positive product reviews? Is there a reason you choose not to include any negative reviews? If you’re a reader, do you prefer reading blogs that offer both positive and negative reviews, or do you prefer only positive reviews?
