Is Time Off a Part of Your Blogging Plan?

 

OMG you guys! I’m writing this post while sitting on a black leather over-sized chair, listening to radio in my hotel room, and will soon be heading out to the beach after finishing this post. The view is simply amazing, there is a gorgeous lake not far away from where we stay.

Frankly, I’m pretty stressed out about taking a two weeks off before school starts.

Yes, I know … I should be stressed right now. But I’m actually feeling okay about it – things will work out, and I’m doing some of the most important work I’ll do all year. I’m taking some time off.

Running my own blog as a business or as a hobby requires intense amount of energy, forethought and foresight. It’s way too easy to wake-up to the laptop, instead of with a cup of espresso coffee in the morning. Anyone else could relate?

I’ll be taking my weeks off from blogging but I’m not going to sweat about it, I’ve already scheduled a couple of Monday posts while I’m gone and actually utilize my trip for blog ideas! I will still share  pictures on Snapchat and Instagram. And if you haven’t subscribed to my blog or social media already, you might want to do so now.

Reason for taking a time off:

In fact, letting our minds off the hook, to wander, to experience, is actual a key ingredient of the creative process. If you are waiting for the next “a-ha” moment, whether it’s a new article idea, blog tagline or potential partner, your best bet is to chill for a bit and take your well deserve vacation.

If you’re furiously trying to force out a new big idea, take it from me, and take a break. The world won’t end, I know my friends would understand.

How do you take time away from your blog? Have you ever taken a blog vacation? What worked (or what didn’t)? Tell me about it in the comment below. I love to hear what you think.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again very soon. Bye!

5 Easy Steps To Speed Up Your Makeup Routine

Hey friends! You can save your time and avoid wasting your precious minutes while dolling up in front of the mirror every single morning by following these 5 easy steps.

concealer and foundation

1) Concealer

Applying concealer under dark circles and blemishes usually takes 1/2 minute, while foundation is also a good way to improve your complexion if you are not completely satisfied. There are some women ho prefer to apply concealer before foundation while others think that concealer should be applied on top. But seriously, it’s completely up to you which ever way you feel comfortable or in what order you put these two products. You can use either a sponge, brush or even your fingertips all depending on your makeup style.

bb cream

2) BB Cream

This product is a must-have for all of us. BB Cream are of light texture although it tends to be a little bit less sheer than tinted moisturizers. You can omit the foundation, sunscreen moisturizer, concealer if you use a BB cream since it replaces those other products. On top of that, BB cream also can replace highlighter and anti-aging serum too. It hides wrinkles and lines and soften your skin, making it brighter and fresh looking. No other beauty products are needed to make your skin look perfect. BB cream solved all problems!

shadow, liner, mascara

3) Eyeliner / Eyeshadow / Mascara

Running out of time on in a rush. Then I suggest you pick only one from both. Natural eyeshadow over your eyelid will give a natural look while eyeliner tends to stand out more. If you are comfortable to apply eyeliner in a hurry that’s fine too. You can apply eyeliner on upper eyelid for a more define lash line and not even need to apply mascara later. But if you are a mascara person then apply one coat so that it dries up before you head out the door. It usually takes up 2 minutes for doing the 3 steps process.

bronzer, blush

4) Bronzer /Blush

Use either bronzer or blush for a lowing and sun-touched skin. It’s especially good for those of you who natural pale skin tone. A touch of bronzer or blush will do the trick. Oh yes! your bronzer must not be 2 shades darker than your normal skin tone.

lip gloss lipstick

5) Lip Gloss/Lipstick

The final step includes applying lip gloss or lipstick or lip stain etc… Both products are great to lift up for a cheerful and refreshing look ready to face the world.

So, conclusion is that these are my 5 easy steps to follow if you like them. But if you have your own routine and like to stitch with it, it’s still fine with me. With this steps I find myself more time to do other things.
