5 Everyday Blogging Essentials

It was only recently that I thought about just how much of my time is spent blogging, most evenings I’ll either be writing a post, replying to comments or planning my next Instagram flatlay! With blogging taking up so much of my time, I thought it would be nice to share some of my day to day essentials that make it 10x easier…

The organiser that doubles up as a photography prop

Having a separate diary dedicated to blogging has honestly been a game changer. I know so many people find it useful to use notes on their phone, but for me nothing beats traditional pen to paper. I love sitting down to plan my content, create to do lists and get everything scheduled. I really recommend Kikki.k stationary, they have so many different collections.

Headphones – no strings attached

I love listening to music in between post writing – I find it so useful to write a post, leave it for 10 minutes and then go back to make any edits. Before trying wireless headphones I never realised just how much more convenient they would be, the Sudio Vasa Bla Headphones* £69 not only look amazing, who doesn’t love rose gold? but the sound quality is fab, and finally my headphones aren’t a tangled mess at the bottom of my bag. If you fancied trying these Sudio were kind enough to give me a discount code for 15% off -JMXO.

A good nights sleep in a bottle

I’ve raved about this so much before so I won’t go on, but the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray £16 really has helped me keep a consistent sleeping pattern. I do try and close my laptop for the night by 9pm, but for those nights that I can’t, this is a godsend! Trying to fall asleep after looking at a bright laptop screen can be tricky, it used to take me a while to drift off but since using this I don’t wake up until my alarm. Maybe it’s placebo, but without this my nights sleep just isn’t the same!

A treat for tired eyes 
A bit of a random one, but I’ve always been a fan of the traditional Optrex eyedrops, so when I got to try the new Optrex Actimist spray* £15.99 I knew I would love it! Wearing contact lenses and looking at a laptop screen all day makes my eyes so dry, almost to the point where I get a headache. After using the Actimist they instantly feel better, it’s really refreshing and I definitely prefer it to eyedrops.

The device that makes writing blog posts a joy

Admittedly, before getting a Macbook I slated them – all that money on a laptop? I’m not saying you need to splash out on a macbook pro but having this in my life has helped me become so much more productive! I’m lucky enough to have mine through work, but I know I’ll never be going back to a windows laptop after using this.

    Loved this post Jodie! I always switch between writing up my blogging notes and using my laptop but I think I'm going to try the bullet journal system and go back to a notebook!The Makeup Directory

      So glad you liked it! I've seen so many people rave about it, I'm not sure how well it would work for me but it seems like a fab way to get really organised! x

    Great post Jodie! I also have a journal for planning posts but it's not as cute of a prop as yours. Some of my blogging essentials are cuticle oil and a sheetmask – I'm all about multitasking while writing posts!Lexienailgirl.net

    I need to try that pillow spray, everyone raves about it and I always have trouble getting a good nights sleep! The eye mist sounds good too, my optician did say my eyes were quite dry thanks to computer screens so I should probably buy this!Laura | Blush and Bronze

    My blogging essentials have to be my Olympus PEN (it's so worth the hype in my opinion!), cosy blankets (for snuggling under while writing posts & as photo props!) and coffee. Can't get anything done without coffee! I am absolutely loving your blog at the moment Jodie – I read every single post! Lynnsay xwww.sartorialscot.com

    Those headphones seem so cool, unique and expensive, it's a good job you have a discount code! I really want to invest in a new laptop, it's got to the point where I have to use the online keyboard because some of my keys don't work..! A Macbook sounds lovely though!Charlotte / Charlotte's Picks

    I love my Macbook Pro and I hate PC's haha! I find Mac's so much easier to use and I love the keyboard's on them. I have also started using a notebook this year to write down blog posts and tick them off as I go and so far it's working out really well 🙂 xoChar | http://www.charslittleblog.blogspot.co.uk
