Merry Christmas! Hope you're all enjoying your day/days/week off... I've got a few days off, which I've spent relaxing with family. I also have some uni work to do which I'm sneaking in while I have the time ;)

I get quite reflective this time of the year, as many do, and like to think about my achievements of the year. If I'm honest, this year has just flown by so fast that I can't believe how much has actually happened. I am excited to plan for next year and wanted to give you some tips on how to maximise your productivity. I'm currently juggling a full-time job, a part-time Master's degree, this part-time blogging thang and a barely there social life. So hopefully I can pass on some wisdom :)

But first, my outfit in this post is linked below (apart from the jumper which is vintage, so I've linked something similar from Topshop):


This is the first point because it's the most important. The only reason that I'm able to get so much done is because I genuinely enjoy it, I genuinely love it. Not only that but I can also see where all that I'm doing will take me in the future. It's not going to be perfect every day, every moment. But nothing is. As long as you're passionate about your work, this will fuel you in the good and bad moments.


It's hard to admit but those lie-ins can eat into some of your most productive time. I am by no means saying that you should sleep less. I'm saying: go to sleep earlier and wake up earlier. This is something I'm still trying to achieve on a more regular basis, my goal is to wake up earlier to exercise. This would free up my evenings that I usually spend forcing a tired workout to do other things, like write my blog posts ahead of schedule ;)

Whenever I read books on success and productivity or read about the lives of the most successful people, waking up earlier is a trait that most of them share. So why not try it out?


This brings me on to my next point. Find the hours that are most productive for you. Is it first thing in the morning, is it mid-morning after the coffee has kicked in, or is it last thing in the evening? Either way, use this knowledge to your advantage. I usually get my best ideas right before bed, so during my undergrauate, I used to work on my dissertation in the evenings. It was one night that I couldn't sleep where I wrote the chapter that resulted in my A grade.

Be aware that you might be productive in different ways throughout the day. For example, you might be most focused and logical in the mornings, then the most creative in the evenings. Or it might be the other way around.

Either way, utilise this knowledge of yourself!

4) 80/20

The 80/20 rule can be applied to so many things in life, and whether or not it's completely factual in all circumstances, I think it's a great way to help review yourself.

They say that out of everything we spend time doing in our day, 20% of this produces 80% of our results. Use this to help eliminate time-wasting activity.


If there's one thing that I truly believe, it's that we have to love and take care of ourselves before anything (unless you have children). If your mental health, physical health or emotional health isn't being taken care of, then any productivity you may have won't be sustainable. 

We all know the big things we can do to take care of ourselves, holiday, spa breaks, weekends away. But it's not enough to have a few weeks throughout the year to keep us healthy.

My methods of self-love involve 
-Exercising regularly - otherwise, I will literally meltdown
-A daily skin care routine - anything that makes you feel beautiful :)
-Regular breaks from working - no matter what work I'm doing, uni or if I'm at work, I will get up every half hour or so and refresh my mind. 
-Music - the cure all


My absolute favourite thing. I could organise anything. 

Find the best way for you to organise yourself, whether it be a to-do list, calendars, reminders, or massive excel spreadsheets. Take the time to create and use it. 

If I'm out and don't have the above on me, I even find typing everything I have to do into my phone notes helps, especially if I'm feeling stressed. It takes the stress from my head, and puts in down in front of me. Then I can organise how to tackle each point.


I can really vouch for a clean space. If (and when) my room becomes messy/unclean, I find myself getting a little stressed. I used to think this was a personal flaw. This OCD mind of mine can't function unless my surroundings are spotless.

This was until I read the first chapter of my current read: You Are Not So Smart. The chapter is on priming and explains that our outside stimulus can subconsciously affect us and our actions. It made me understand that I literally have a clearer mind when my room is clean. There's less distracting my little mind, which means more room for focus and productivity.


Another one of my recent reads, Think and Grow Rich taught me one key thing that I literally carry with me daily now. Everything begins with an idea.

There are many quotes, books, research papers and conversations on this topic, so I'm not going to go all philosophical on a fashion blog post. But there is some truth to it.

I've accomplished so much this year that I used to dream about. And yes, it is down to hard work and perseverance. But I also simply believed that I could be the person I am today. And here I am. Work-in-progress me, striving to be the next, even better, version of myself.

I hope this inspired you, and I wish you all a productive, successful, and most importantly 
HAPPY New Year.

  5. It will also make them readable by software packages used by these with sight problems. Your page title is extraordinarily important so far as the various search engines are concerned.

  8. With the increasing number of blockchain systems appearing, even only those that support cryptocurrencies, blockchain interoperability is becoming a topic of major importance. The objective is to support transferring assets from one blockchain system to another blockchain system. Wegner stated that "interoperability is the ability of two or more software components to cooperate despite differences in language, interface, and execution platform". The objective of blockchain interoperability is therefore to support such cooperation among blockchain systems, despite those kinds of differences. Such games also represent a high risk to investors as their revenues can be difficult to predict. Several major publishers, including Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, and Take Two Interactive, have stated that blockchain and NFT-based games are under serious consideration for their companies in the future.

    Nikolai Hampton of Computerworld said that "many in-house blockchain solutions will be nothing more than cumbersome databases," and "without a clear security model, proprietary blockchains should be eyed with suspicion." Blocks hold batches of valid transactions that are hashed and encoded into a Merkle tree. Each block includes the cryptographic hash of the prior block in the blockchain, linking the two. This iterative process confirms the integrity of the previous block, all the way back to the initial block, which is known as the genesis block. To assure the integrity of a block and the data contained in it, the block is usually digitally signed.

    Financial services companies are already well down the road to blockchain adoption. TCP/IP burst into broad public use with the advent of the World Wide Web in the mid-1990s. New technology companies quickly emerged to provide the “plumbing”—the hardware, software, and services needed to connect to the now-public network and exchange information. Netscape commercialized browsers, web servers, and other tools and components that aided the development and adoption of internet services and applications. Sun drove the development of Java, the application-programming language. As information on the web grew exponentially, Infoseek, Excite, AltaVista, and Yahoo were born to guide users around it.

    JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon says he believes in blockchain as a future technology, giving the ledger system a vote-of-confidence from Wall Street. The government of Japan recognizes the legitimacy of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Blockchain and cryptocurrency are mentioned in popular television shows like The Good Wife, injecting blockchain into pop culture. Although blockchain is a new technology, it already boasts a rich and interesting history. The following is a brief timeline of some of the most important and notable events in the development of blockchain. https://www.reviewengin.com/how-will-blockchain-change-the-world-2022/

  9. These issues that divide convincing or enjoyable virtual reality experiences from jarring or unpleasant ones are partly technical and partly conceptual. We have 180 degrees of vision and although you are not always consciously aware of your peripheral vision, if it were gone you’d notice. Similarly when what your eyes and the vestibular system in your ears tell you are in conflict it can cause motion sickness. Which is what happens to some people on boats or when they read while in a car.
    The device, for rotorcraft pilots, enhances safety by opening up the possibility of practicing risky maneuvers in a virtual environment. This addresses a key risk area in rotorcraft operations, where statistics show that around 20% of accidents occur during training flights. Simulated reality is a hypothetical virtual reality as truly immersive as the actual reality, enabling an advanced lifelike experience or even virtual eternity. In 1938, French avant-garde playwright Antonin Artaud described the illusory nature of characters and objects in the theatre as "la réalité virtuelle" in a collection of essays, Le Théâtre et son double. The English translation of this book, published in 1958 as The Theater and its Double, is the earliest published use of the term "virtual reality".
    What if you could share not simply a photo or a link to a Web article but an entire experience? Instead of sharing photos of your wedding with your Facebook friends, what if you could make it possible for people to attend your wedding remotely, in virtual reality, in perpetuity? What if we could record historical events in such a way that people could experience them again and again, forever more? These are the sorts of social, collaborative virtual reality sharing that Facebook is thinking about exploring right now. If that does eventually happen, the future of virtual reality looks very bright indeed. Virtual Reality is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. https://www.reviewengin.com/virtual-reality-augmented-reality-digital-revolution/

  10. Once you’ve gotten the rhythm down, you might find yourself creating additional types of influencer marketing campaigns. If you’re looking to get more resources for your team to run influencer campaigns, try out our business case template for social team resources. Working with micro influencers can be a great start to your influencer marketing strategy.
    Micro-influencer marketing and nano-influencer marketing are both super powerful, so don’t pass them by. Ideally, you should reach out to influencers at all of these levels. This is the kind of approach that made brands like Daniel Wellington so successful, and it’s super easy to replicate. Instagram is best for sharing photo or video content that’s bite-sized and meant to catch the eye. If you’re selling a product , Instagram is almost definitely one platform you’ll want to be on. This Facebook influencer marketing campaign from footwear and accessory company Loeffler Randall caught our attention in the past, and it warrants a mention here as well.
    Currently influencer marketing is so cost-effective that marketers can afford to make mistakes, learn, and refine their process. They can try different influencers, gather analytics, and become more sophisticated buyers. At the same time, influencers are becoming more savvy and figuring out the best way to engage with their audience.
    If done right, influencer marketing can immensely help in building your brand awareness, delivering your message to your target audience, and winning their hearts. The main thing that goes in favor of influencer marketing is that bloggers are not just people, who strictly implement the task. With their help, you can run a campaign in a very innovative and unusual way. The article “Top 8 types of influencer marketing campaigns” by Cloohawk lists more types and examples of influencer marketing campaigns. Swedish watch brand, Daniel Wellington may be the most famous for influencer marketing. The company advertises mostly through opinion leaders across various platforms and countries. https://www.reviewengin.com/category/influencer-marketing/
