5 reasons why you should start your own blog.

A lot of people go into the blogging industry dreaming fame and money. Unfortunately the blogging world is pretty competitive and an easy success is not realistic. But there is way more to blogging than it meets the eye. So here are some realistic reasons why you should create your own blog.

  •  Creating Relationships

Even if its a comment every once in a while or a casual conversation the blogging community from my personal experience is very nice. By creating your blog you get the chance to talk with people, exchange ideas and even make new friends.

  • Improve Your Writing

By writing a lot of posts you can evolve and improve your writing without the anxiousness of grades and strict teachers.

  • Create a Portfolio

If you are interested in the writing, social media, blogging, youtubing, marketing….. etc. industries chances are your potential bosses will want to review your work. Having a blog that you have worked on for a long time ready for submission makes things a lot easier.

  • Attract Opportunities

As you must be aware blogging is a growing field. This means that companies are interested in bloggers and having a blog might get you an invite to a cool event or even a free product to try out. Of course you should not begin blogging just for that but its a great addition to all of the above.

  • Create

Every person is different. But we all have the need to express ourselves. By creating new blogging content you have a nice hobby through which you can show your true self in a fun way.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow – Review 

Today I will be talking about a product I fell in love with. When I received it I had no idea it even existed and I hadn’t realized how much I needed it.

What is it?


According to the website it’s a “Light-reflecting face primer”.

What does it do?

It’s core of fluorescent light diffuser will capture light to illuminate the skin. It will smooth over wrinkles and its anti-aging properties will stimulate collagen, enhancing skin elasticity.

The packaging.

Charlotte Tilbury’s packaging is gorgeous and this is not any different. It has a clear body embellished with the classic Charlotte Tilbury reddish brown and coppery rose gold that is also on the lid.

The formula.

As far as the formula is concerned it is really hydrating and smooth. But it is really sheer so do not expect any “makeup like” coverage.

How to use it?

  1. First a foremost as a primer underneath your foundation. I personally don’t use it as a primer just because it is really subtle and I feel foundation covers it’s gorgeous shine.
  2. As a foundation topper. (My personal favorite.) Having combination to oily skin I always go for matte foundations thus I cannot achieve the on-trend dewy look  that all of the makeup world is raving about. But now with the Wonderglow I can get the brightness back on my skin without the oiliness of a non-matte foundation. It’s the best of both worlds really.
  3. On its own for your no makeup days to give a simple glow. But because as I mentioned it doesn’t provide any coverage you will probably end up throwing a BB cream in the mix.

Would I recommend it?

Yes! For someone who wishes to achieve a dewy everyday look. Especially for older ages when the skin loses some of its brightness, elasticity and moisture it is a must.

Morning Skincare Routine

Today I would like to share with you guys my morning routine that I do everyday some days,if I remember and I am not already an hour late. Although I understand the benefits of a ten step skin care routine this is not something I can do. So here’s my small, humble morning skincare routine.

Cleansing

L’Oréal Ideal Fresh Foaming Cleanser

I like this cleanser because it’s pretty heavy duty. It takes off all of my makeup and dirt off my face. But because it’s so strong it’s also really drying. If you have a dry skin I would not recommend.

Moisturizing

Clinique Eye Cream

I’ve been using this eye cream for a while and I am not really crazy about it. It is somewhat moisturizing but not out of this world best eye cream around.

Charlotte Tilbury Face Cream

Last, I use my Charlotte Tilbury face cream. I really like it because it’s really moisturizing and has SPF which helps cut my routine further down. Check out the full review!

Making your blog legal (The lazy way)

From online research there are two basic things your blog needs to be “legal”. A disclosure policy if you are earning anything from your blog and a privacy policy if you collect any of the user’s data (such as email). Simple enough right? Well no! Since I am not a lawyer or affiliated with one composing these documents myself is impossible. The good news? There are sites that do the work for you for free! You just answer a series of questions and the site composes the policies for you. You just copy and paste them into a page of your blog! Of course if you have a big blog through which you receive significant income the sound choice is to consult a professional lawyer but for beginners like me I think this will suffice. Here you can compose your Privacy Policy and here the Disclosure Policy. I have tried both sites and you can check the results in the corresponding pages of my blog.

Mr. Kate inspired wall art

A while back Mr. Kate visited Joslyn Davis’ place and together made this DIY pink and white wall art.

Source
It’s a really simple DIY but because I’m lazy (and broke) I simplified it even more. You will need:

  • Three white wall frames

Download sketches. You can use all the tools I did for an hour without additional payment. And then get creative! Print your creations and frame them to the wall! That simple!


Here’s how it turned out! 

My parents hated it but I love it. It’s really simplistic and cute. If you like how it looks and want the same yourselves here are the pictures I made. 

Pampering day

We all have those days when we feel like everything sucks! When you feel awful and everything that can go wrong does! Our immediate reaction is to stay in bed all day. So here are some better ideas to brighten those days. Ideas to unwind and destress from a tiring day (or month). Don’t forget to pamper yourself!

  • Adult coloring books are in the spotlight! I suggest you invest in one. I don’t know what it is about them but they can definitely clear your head!

  • Put on a face mask. It’s beneficial, funny and good selfie material. Shhh…
  • Make a bubble bath and light up some awesome smelling candles. You’ll definitely feel more relaxed. A hot shower can also do the trick!
  • Do your nails. I don’t know what it is about painting my nails but it honestly makes me feel like my life is in order. Sadly it isn’t. A girl can dream! Right?
  • Read a book that you love
  • Binge watch your favorite show. Procrastination at its finest!
  •   Listen to music!

  • Order your favorite take-out. Yeah I ate it all myself. Don’t judge!

5 Disadvantages of Owning a Dog

Since you guys enjoyed my post about 5 Advantages of Owning a Dog I thought I would do the opposite. This is my personal experience. I love my little furry ball and I am not trying to discourage people from getting a doggie. But, since not everything is perfect I thought I would share in a fun way 5 disadvantages of having a dog.

Financial

I’ve heard a lot of people saying that having a dog can be pretty cheap. ” They just need a corner to sleep and some food”. While this is partially true and having a pet doesn’t have to be overly expensive dogs are living organisms. They need drugs, doctors and checkups. Anything else your dog needs you can find cheap alternatives but when it comes to health things are tricky. You might never need a vet but you also might have to spend a lot more than you anticipated. My advice is to put some money aside each month for your dog’s medical expenses if they need them in the future.

Practical

As we all know dogs need company, walks and generally time. A busy lifestyle in addition to caring for a dog can be pretty tiring.

Attachment

Dogs generally are pretty attached to their owners. Although, each dog is different usually your dog will get pretty attached to you. This means that your alone time will be a lot less from now on.

Hair

Have you ever thought what it would be like if you were drowning in hair? Get ready to find out! Dogs shed. A lot. Chances are you will be buying a new vacuum soon enough.

Loss

From the moment I got my baby my worst fear is the day I’ll lose her. If nothing happens to me I know that I will probably be okay to see my dog go. When you spend so much time with a being you are going to be deeply hurt when they’re gone.

All in all, dogs are great but getting one is not an easy decision and there are no take backs. So if you decide to get a dog it will be for life.

Delilah Cosmetics-Review

Are you on the lookout for new beauty brands? If so Delilah Cosmetics is a great place to start! I have so many great things to say about this brand.

First of all, every product is dermatologically tested and paraben free. I wanted to mention this first because when looking at new brands safety is always my first concern. In addition to that I noticed that they also have vegan products. I do not know if all of their products are but for some products it is clearly stated. ( Just check the description and ingredients before buying) Another point goes to Delilah for packaging. I love the silver monochromatic look with touches of color. I think the packaging is pretty unique in relation to what is out right now. Generally, Delilah carries very well thought, solid products that cater to everyone.

Time Frame Future Resist Foundation

I really enjoyed this foundation for two reasons. Firstly, even though it has good coverage (medium) it is so lightweight and glides on the skin smoothly. It also contains Vitamin E and SPF 20 that will protect your skin from environmental damages. It is buildable and long wearing.

Ps. Don’t be fooled by the tube it comes with a pump! (Sneaky)

Farewell Cream Concealer

Due to its peachy undertones this concealer cancels out dark circles while providing coverage. It’s unbelievably creamy for a stick and goes on like a dream. (Keep in mind this comes from a liquid concealer kind of gal)

Brow Line Retractable Eye Brow Pencil with Brush

I am in love! I am so bad at doing my brows. This brow pencil is firm which really helps me not to go overboard. It comes with a brow brush that is equally great.

Colour Intense Cream Lipstick

The lipsticks I have (Floozy, Flirt) are amazingly creamy. They glide on the lips and are really moisturizing. In addition to that the color selection is great. Don’t expect the same long wear as matte lipsticks but for their creamy formula they are really long wearing.

All in all, I am loving Delilah products. They are really well made and thought through. ( No one is paying me to say good stuff unfortunately 😂 ) I genuinely love this brand and I believe more brands should strive to become like that.

What do you guys think about Delilah cosmetics? Have you tried any of their products? Let me know in the comments below!
