Adelle is a fantastic fashion, fitness and lifestyle blogger from Perth. We’re in love with her down to earth nature, gorgeous photos and her hilarious yet informative blog posts. We caught up with Adelle to ask her how she balances work and play and how she stays organised!
1) When organising, which side are you on: paper or digital?
I am so totally old school, even though my life revolves around the digital age with my blog and full time job, I still write “to do ” lists at work on my massive calendar, and have a completely full diary that fits in my bag. It took me years as a photographer to switch over from film photography to digital – so I think i’ll be stuck in the pen and paper age for quite some time!
2) Do you make a daily, weekly or monthly plan (or all three!)?
I tend to live week by week, I have ideas for monthly and yearly plans but I generally only check my diary by the week – otherwise I get overwhelmed with how much I have to do!
3) How do you spend your average Tuesday?
Tuesday’s are generally pretty non eventful which I love! I finish work anywhere from 4pm – 5pm but I live an hour away…so I am one of those “fall asleep on another passenger on the train” kind of people which is always embarrassing, it’s worse when you drool a little. I get home and reply to e-mails, schedule a few blog posts, dinner with hubby, quick dip in the pool then vege in front of the TV and watch trash. Trash TV is kind of my staple!
4) What products do you use to help you stay organised?
My diary is my vice…I cannot function without it! And my Fletcher & May magnet board is a must have for all my bits of paper that are strewn across my study. I also write my weekly activities up on my chalk board in the kitchen, this is for my husband so he knows if I’ll be home or not straight after work! I also have a bunch of watercolours and brush’s and A5 sketch books which I generally paint words in a fair bit, this doesn’t keep me organised but it does keep me sane, and lately I have actually had time to do more (see instagram). I LOVE sharpies too! As a graphic designer I do a LOT of design work full time, so I enjoy mixing media with typography – written with watercolour then transferred into illustrator and pulling it all together into indesign.
5) If you had an eighth day in the week, what would you spend it doing?
Nothing. I always spend one day on the weekend shooting upcoming blog posts, or working with Rockingham Shopping Centre, the other day is chores, I want a day of nothing! Bring that 8th day ON!!!!
6) What does your workspace look like?
Find Adelle on Instagram, Facebook and her blog!
Thank you kindly for your time Adelle!
