Things I'd Like To Do This Week

Today, I come to you with a confession. This is something that I've been denying for what feels like my entire life but today I'm going to come clean: I hate to do lists. They make me feel overwhelmed, stressed and like I couldn't possibly have enough time to do all these the things that I 'have to do'. So today I'm going to try and put a little spin on the 'regular' to do list and share a list of things that I'd like to do instead. (Idk why but even the wording of that makes me feel a lot calmer.)

 Eat more vegetables.
 Bake something.
Go on the bus and travel just one stop.
 Go on another Father-Daughter adventure day with my dad.
Finish laying Leigh's paths on her Animal Crossing: New Leaf for her.
 Catch up to Luke on Pokémon Y.
Plan blog content for the next two weeks.
 Finish Legend of Korra season 3 with mum, Leigh and Luke.
Take a bath in the evening with candles lit and a Lush bubble bar.
 Paint my nails.
Vlog more on Snapchat. (Username: whatlaurendidx)
Finish reading Seed & start a new book.


  1. Best of luck with your bus adventure lovely. I know how you must be feeling on that front, just remember that you can often already see the stop in front and it'll be much easier <3 and oh gosh - I need to repair so many of my ACNL paths! x

    1. Thank you so so much! I feel I have many many hours ahead of me with Leigh's paths! x

  2. Good luck on your bus adventure, maybe it could be something you conquer with your dad? Bubble baths and baking is always a good idea! :) xx

  3. Haha I think I'm the opposite with snapchat. I think I'm posting too much and I have a problem and I need to stop.

    The Life of Little Me

    1. I go through phases where I'll post constantly for a few days then the next few days I won't post at all haha!

  4. I've just followed you on snapchat - I'm such a big fan of your Instagram and I'd love to see more, eeek! I'm a big fan of to-do lists - they help my anxiety ease off so much because I'm not in a panic about what to do

    Steph -

  5. I would bake something but nobody will eat it. I'm the worst baker haha. I hope you achieve everything you want to do :) It's a good list!

    1. Thank you! I actually baked today and my brother loved it which is unusual! X

  6. This is such a great idea! To-do list should be way more fun and positive. I'm gonna try this : ) Great post!
    Steph x.

  7. I like the idea of a "things I'd like to do this week" list instead of a "to-do this week" list. To-do lists can be super daunting! I hope you managed to do a few of these this week :) x x

  8. Aw I love a good list! Something else that might work for you - what about a list of things that you have done? Even if it's not much, it's a way to think oh, I have actually done stuff today.

  9. I like the 'like-to-do' instead of 'to-do' list. I think it makes you wan to get do things and be more productive while remaining in a better state of mind. Good luck completing this list!
