Blogging is fun, but it could get a little overwhelming sometimes. Most of the time, blogging is not someone’s full time job (only a few lucky ones get to do that *sob*). So when you’re still balancing between blogging and doing your full time job, it helps to plan your blog posts in advance.
I have created for you a Printable Weekly Blog Planner. It’s a pretty straight forward planner where you put the date, posts that you’ve planned for each day of the week, and your to-do list (anyone you need to contact? any DIY you need to create? any products you need to photograph?). For each day when your post is up, you’ll also get a reminder to share it on three main social medias: facebook, twitter & pinterest.
With this blog planner, your blogging will be more organized and fun! I am also using it for my own blog too :)

I have decided to take part in #100HappyDays challenge starting today. It is not because I’ve been unhappy or to show off how awesome or happy I have been. I just thought that it’s a freaking awesome challenge to do. After all, who wouldn’t want to be happy for 100 days? It sounds pretty easy, but I bet it’s going to be a challenge to complete this for 100 days.
It is a challenge for you to find something that makes you happy everyday and try to capture it for 100 consecutive days. It could be anything from meeting up with friends or seeing roses bloom in your own garden. However, this is not a showing off contest, so you shouldn’t post that picture just to please/make others jealous (oh that sounds hard! ;) ). Do this challenge for yourself, not for others. You can post your happy photos on social medias such as instagram, facebook, flickr or if you want to avoid publicity, you can simply send your photos to myhappyday [at] 100happydays.com. And if you do post photos on social medias, don’t forget to hashtag #100happydays
Since I am very much all right with publicity, I’d like to post mine on instagram. I have to admit there’s another reason why I’d like to take part in this challenge. I’d like to be more active on instagram. Instagram is my favourite social media ever. The first thing I open when I look at my mobile phone for fun is Instagram. I love the photos that people post, and I love editing, styling and posting my own photos there. If you haven’t follow me on instagram yet, please do!
Here’s a really happy photo of mine, and it makes me feel happy whenever I look at this photo. It reminds me of what I was doing when this photo was taken. It was my 24th Birthday, and I was in Pizza Hut in my hometown with my parents. My dad took this photo after I received my birthday present from them :)
Things have been very busy here at my little home office. However, I’m glad that I somehow still be able to blog and create freebies you all love. Here’s this month’s wallpaper calendar. I hope you’ll enjoy having this little sailor dude on your computer for the whole month of April :)
Its easier to download them straight to your iPhone / iPad.
1. On your iPhone/iPad, open your browser and go to www.designisyay.com and find this post.
2. Click on the download link of the wallpaper you wish to download. Once the image is fully downloaded on your browser, tap + hold the image until a menu comes up. Click “Save Image”.
3. Open the “Photos” app and go to “Camera Roll”. Select the Wallpaper that you want to use, click on the bottom left arrow icon and select “Use as Wallpaper”. Your iPhone / iPad will ‘guide’ you through the rest of the steps.
If you have ios 7:
ios7 has the tendency to “zoom” images used for wallpaper. If this happens to your phone, go to SETTINGS > GENERAL > ACCESSIBILITY > REDUCE MOTION and turn ON Reduce Motion (the button thing should turn green). Then follow step number 3 again.
I am currently in love with Citta Design. Citta Design is an NZ-based design house bringing you a range of beautiful goods for your home and yourself. I’m actually eyeing for this quilt cover, it is super adorable! Do you know that they recently opened a shop in Surry Hills, Sydney?
What is it with New Zealand, there are so many talented and amazing designers! A lot of my favourite designers, and even my favourite design blog, are from NZ. I really should plan a trip to Auckland soon….
