Positivus'17 came and ended way too quickly for my liking, but I think that's the usual feeling when something is waited for so long. The anticipation to get to the festival was so built up that I feel like those three days went by a second. But despite that fact, weather treated us so well that the raincoat and rain boots stayed packed the whole time. As day one was filled with half day travelling I decided to go for something comfortable and relaxed.

POSITIVUS DAY 1 / OUTFIT

In less than a week I'll be heading to the Positivus festival and I'm actually quite exited and giddy about it, than I thought I would. In my mind I'm already starting to pack my suitcase, cause I'm such an overpacker and I really hate doing it, so leaving up to last minute is so my style. But one of the outfits - is already planned and it's this look you see in the photos, a gorgeous checked dress (which I never thought would suit me) and a staple black denim jacket which goes perfectly with my all black wardrobe, ehhemm. 
In this post I've gathered few of my festival must-haves, to just start off my and your packing cause you'll probably need them too .. 


1. PHONE CHARGER & POWER ADAPTER

What an original item to start with, but really that's the way to start your packing. Not only because you'll want to take loads of pictures & videos, but at some point you'll definitely loose your friends and will want to find them via telephone. And don't get me started on festival charging spots, never have I ever been able to charge my phone at them cause the lines are insane, so a power charger will definitely be in my purse on the go.

 2. WELLIES & RAINCOAT

Even if the weather forecast is showing all days sunny, I usually tend to be more critical and still pack my wellies and a raincoat. Cause at the end of the day this Latvian summer weather has been a total roller coaster - form cold rain to scorching hot weather in a days time. And what's worse than having my feet wet and catching a cold the next week, so I'm definately packing my wellies.


3. SUNSCREEN & HAT

That's really a no-brainer, wear your SPF and don't forget about it. As the festival is outdoors and even if the day is cloudy the sun can do so much damage to your skin, if you don't protect it. The hat is always an optional choice, but if you're going to be in the sun most of the time, there a many stylish ways to protect yourself from the sun & dizziness which it can cause.

4. HOODIE & LEATHER JACKET

As I love my comfort, and I take it very seriously. In my not yet existing packing bag - there's already a hoodie and a leather jacket in it. Cause when the sun is set and all your things you'll don't need at night are put away, overall all you need is your phone & wallet and the perfect place to store them are your pockets preferably with zippers cause you want to insure that no one is getting in your pockets uninvited. 

5. SANITIZERS & OTHER BITS AND BOBS

I know, how we all love those festival toilets, but you gotta do what you gotta do. So the best way to protect yourself from all kind of bacteria - is hand sanitezers and wet wipes - these literally will be your best friends the whole festival time. The best thing is that nowadays all these items have been created so little that they won't take that much space in your bag / purse. One of the thing I will also definitely pack is patches cause you can't do a festival with out them.


I've probably left some other things out, so I would love to know what are your top things you'll pack in your bag and tips when heading to a festival.
See you in POSITIVUS, x

I know, we all procrastinate from time to time, but lately I've definitely become a professional procrastinator. So to get out this funk and start being more productive I've written 5 things that really help me pull myself together.

1. DOING IT NOW
Let's start off with the basics. One of the best advice I've read on how to stop procrastinating - is doing things that takes less than 2 minutes, right at that moment. For example : answering an email the moment your read it or washing your dishes after a finished meal rather than leaving them in your sink. These small changes in a day to day life really makes a difference in being more productive.

2. JUST START ALREADY 
We all know if you're stuck in a procrastinating mode, starting an already delayed project with many hours ahead seems like a very terrifying and stressful thought. My best advice for that is to - begin now, it could be working for 30 minutes or even 10 minutes, but just getting past that starting point will make you feel so much better about the project you've been avoiding.
3. MAKE A TO DO LIST 
This probably is my favorite thing to do before I start my work day. Creating a list with all the things you need to do that day, sure can be terrifying, but I love that feeling ticking of that job well done. 


4. ENVIRONMENT
Picking the perfect working environment can be tricky. I personally love working from home, but if the project is really important and done in a short period time I prefer to isolate myself from everyone. Either it's being in a different room (if you're living with someone), going to a library or being in a coffee shop with other fellow non procrastinators. 
5. BLOCKING OUT ALL DISTRACTIONS
Internet, nowadays is definitely the biggest distraction of all. Of course if you're using it work related go ahead, but be careful not getting sucked into funny videos about pets. I couldn't count the times if I wanted to - of how many hours I've spent on youtube watching random videos when I should've been working. So my best advice is - before you start working put that silence mode on your phone and turn it around facing the desk, and ignore funny videos you come across while working on internet.


If you're stuck in a procrastinating mode, I hope these 5 ways to be productive helped you, but still
I would love to know how all of you stay productive and don't give into procrastination, x!
