May|LANEIGE Lip Mask

Hey everyone, welcome back to my page. I hope you all had a great mothers day. I’ts so hard going through each week knowing your going to just be indoors almost all day. I am trying to accept the fact that maybe this whole year is going to just be different and its so hard to accept. From since this started its been really hard for me to get things done (social media wise). I have to try get what I need done while keeping my kids busy and i know a lot of other mommy’s are going through the same thing. May has just been a tough month. I wanted to do an review on a recent product I got the LANEIGE lip mask.

LANEIGE

I have not been putting out posts because this month as been slow when debating what to write on. And I decided am not going to push nor stress about putting out posts. Also I have noticed for this month of May traffic has been slow.

About LANEIGE

For this post I wanted to talk about laneige lip mask. This lip mask is a leave on over night mask. It soothes and moisturises while you sleep for more smooth and plump lips. This product helps with dryness and for fine lips around the lip area. More info on the product ” If you want to know more…
Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that closely adheres to lips for quick absorption. Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants, its Berry Mix Complex™ offers a nutritiously sweet and fragrant blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge the senses. Its exclusive Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients. A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch.” – LANEIGE “Sephora.com”

About the product

When buying this product it comes with an small applicator. You can use this applicator when applying the product. You can apply the product at nights right before bed or you can apply around the evening time and leave on overnight. This just allows the product to be on longer. Therefore in the morning you will gently then wipe off any excess amounts left on your lips and follow into your morning cleansing routine.

LANEIGE lip mask has a moisture wrap technology, this is a mineral network of moisture that wraps an eight hour time realise and locks in active ingredients. Also has a berry mix complex. This is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and a mixture of different berries. This product actually carries a large amounts of ingredients, if you are interested in finding out what is in the product you can find it here LIST OF INGREDIENTS. The product has different types of flavors you can chose from. There is original, vanilla, apple lime, grapefruit and sweet candy. I bought the flavor apple lime.

Review

In conclusion my overall review of the product is i absolutely love the product. I got the flavor apple lime and I love the smell of it. Its not to overwhelming yet there is enough scent. I have been using the product for awhile now and my lips look ten times more better in the mornings.

And to be honest I am a huge lip bitter hence why I decided to give this product a try and it made my lips so much better. I do plan on buying more flavors. The product comes off as a smooth lip balm texture and once applied it looks like your wearing lip balm. When my lips are pretty bad I usually just apply this and leave it throughout the day. This can be used as a lip balm and as a mask because I love how instantly it soothes my lips and how it feels. I would suggest anyone with severe dry lips like me or who would even just want a more plump hydrated lip to try this product out. I will give it a ten out of ten and even buy more!

April Monthly Wrap Up

Hey everyone, and welcome back. Its crazy to say but we are officially at the end of April! I find that insane because the other day I was saying that its crazy its April already but here we are going into May. New month for new goals to achieve. For today’s post I wanted to do my monthly wrap up for the month. And talk about my goals I achieved and plans for the month of May. Even tho I will talk about it in my May post.

Month of April

I can honestly say April was such a good month for me and my blog. I put in extra effort for promoting my posts and it paid off. The top goal I achieved this month was more views. It feels so good to finally reach where I wanted to be for the longest while. Its not much, some might find the amount of views not that much to be celebrated but every milestone is something to celebrate. I am hoping I break my milestone by tomorrow! One big change I noticed is that I have stopped rushing blog posts. I now put my time and effort into my topics and take more time to type them. I mean dont get me wrong my past posts were worth it but I always felt compelled to always be throwing a post out to catch up on my views for the month. Therefore I noticed some did not even get enough views.

Now that I slow down and think about what I want to write about and the popular topics that people will be looking about I have seen a change in my blog. One other thing I love that I did was change up my days and timing. Moving my upload to 3pm in the afternoon made a big change. I got more views from since doing that especially now during isolation.

Check out April’s Wrap Up if you haven’t “Hello April”

May

To be honest I dont have much goals set for May. One goal id probably just want to set is achieving the same amount of views I did for the month of April. Still lining up post topics for through out the month to have to help upload for posts to my site. And in all honesty that is about it lol. I never want to set too much for myself. Especially with being indoors all day with kids and helping my oldest with online schooling I dont have time. And I wouldn’t want to set too much of goals for myself and I already know I wouldn’t do them. The best thing for is is slow and steady and its working! Its funny how you can discover things jut by doing them on accident.

I also did notice in April an increase of search engine results with a mixture of some from pinterest that is what more increased my views on my page. I am hoping I get even more in May.

Conclusion

And that is it for my monthly wrap up, I know its not much but I always still love to share what has happen during my months blogging and what I have been doing that may help someone who just started blogging. And I am so sorry if I may have repeated anything I am always trying to remember info I may have not told but I may have I dont know lol. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post and let me know what are your goals for your blog in the month of May. Also if you haven’t got to catch up with my past posts you can find them below.

Mario Badescu : Enzyme Cleansing Gel

Hey everyone, welcome back. Happy Monday, I hope everyone had a great and relaxing weekend. I am happy I am getting these blog posts out for you all and am reaching my goals for my amount of views per month. Of course I am working harder to achieve more but am happy. For today’s post I wanted to talk about an product I just recently purchased. I have used it a couple times so far and I must say it’s kind of my new favourite product right now. We are going to talk about the Mario Badescu enzyme cleansing gel.

Mario Badsecu

Mario Badsecu

” For over half a century, Mario Badescu has been the name that transcends generations and spans the entire life-cycle of skin, combining cosmetic chemistry and aesthetic expertise to customize regimens for every skin type and concern imaginable. Simple and effective is our philosophy—which is why Mario Badescu is skin care for all.”– Mario

Product Information

Mario Badescu cleansing gel is an light weight gel formula that is suitable for all skin types. This also helps with the skin concerns of oiliness, uneven texture of the skin and dullness. The two main ingredients in this product is grapefruit and papaya extract. These two ingredients help remove all excess oil in the skin and rejuvenate the skin. You can use this product twice a day morning or night I personally feel it all depends on your skin. You would dispense the product and massage in circular motions. Rinse product off with warm water and follow up with any of your Mario products or any other skincare products.

Review: Enzyme Cleansing Gel

Overall my initial thoughts about the product is over the moon. I absolutely love this product. In all honesty I think this is a first product I love in a long time especially within skincare. I pretty much think this is going to be my go to cleanser for awhile. First of all I love the smell of it ( I know weird). It does not really have a loving scent but I love it. Also I love how its a god size bottle for a reasonable selling price. It does not make my face feel super dry after using it. Right after spraying my toner I can honestly go throughout the day without a moisturiser. My face looks brighter and refreshed. And that is what I am looking for a product that does not dry out the skin and gives a brighter result and just makes your skin feel and look refreshed. I would recommend you trying this and id give it a 10 out of 10!

I hope my post and review help and gave you an outlook to try any or hell all of Mario products. After rating this product and trying it out I honestly want to go and try his other products. Its a steal without breaking my bank so why not? I hope you all enjoyed reading today’s post. Please like, share and leave a comment! Let me know if you’d tried this product and if you did how was it? Did you like it? Have you tried any of this brands product? Let me know! Also if you haven’t read any of my latest posts and looking to catch up you can find them below!

My daily routine during isolation

Hey everyone, welcome back. Happy Monday! These weeks have been going by quick for me. It’s crazy to think that for the fact we have been stuck in isolation for a few weeks now. I am beginning to find it hard to keep myself busy during the days or least find rest. I thought why not make a post on my daily routine during isolation.

Isolation

Morning’s

Most my mornings start at around after 7am. That is usually the time my youngest daughter wakes up and my oldest. They still on that early school mornings schedule. I lay in bed with my youngest for awhile, scroll through social media for awhile before I get up. I love laying for a bit before I get up. To curve this over I drink a cup of water before I start my day.

I prepare breakfast. My oldest loves waffles usually sometimes eggs and my youngest has fruits and eggs. Forgot to mention in the mornings when my youngest gets up she does have a bottle while we relax in bed. So she usually is still hungry so she gets a plate of breakfast. While the kids eat while watching their programs I get ready and start my breakfast. I usually have either eggs or oatmeal and some fruit. While eating am usually watching a show or scrolling through my phone.

After breakfast the kids usually just watch tv. Since online school has started after breakfast my oldest starts her class work. This is usually a challenge throughout the day because my oldest has a very short attention span. She can be doing one task for hours. So pretty much through the afternoon am trying to get her to focus. My one year old usually gets occupied with her favourite movies and shows or just runs around the house. (I usually don’t do much as in learning yet with her she usually doesn’t stay and would just throw anything). So my oldest does this for awhile and by then my youngest gets ready to go down for her morning nap. This is around from 11 to 12:30pm she starts getting tired.

Afternoon

Usually my oldest can be still doing work or taking a break by then. When she does take her break I then allow her to just play for a bit. This is the time I do my blogging or anything else am trying to get done. My youngest naps for about an hour if a short nap or three hours or so if a long nap. But around this time the afternoon am not really doing much. Also I just want to make a disclaimer that since the quarantine started I have been at my mom and dads place. And since then I haven’t gone back home I’ve been staying with them. I just wanted to state that in case anyone wondering why am not really doing anything lol like if am a wife that does nothing.

Evening

By evening time it is usually down time around then for me. We all are not really doing anything by then. It is mostly time doing activities. From 12pm onwards it’s getting things done and coming up with activities to do.

isolation

This leads towards more in the evening. By around 6pm its usually dinner time. By then I get my kids dinner ready, I am then most likely eating by then too. After eating they both run around for a bit. By 7pm its ready to get ready for a bath. After my youngest takes a bath she ready to get ready for bed. She is always down by least 8pm to 9pm on good nights. On bad nights she could take up till 10pm to go down. My oldest is rough for going down at nights so she usually would knock out by 10pm the latest. And no I dont allow that on school nights her bedtime is 8:30pm.

Conclusion

And by that time its me time. I am always looking forward to this time throughout the day especially on tiring days. I mean don’t get me wrong I love spending time with my kids but this quarantine can get the best of us. But there you go my day during isolation. I am sorry if my day seems somewhat boring lol. This is a raw everyday routine from a mommy with two kids. Thank you all for reading. Please like, share and comment. And if you haven’t read my latest posts you can find them below.

5 Reasons to start a blog today

Hey everyone, welcome back. Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is doing well. For today’s post I wanted to talk about reasons why you should start a blog. Now I of course already started one, and am currently in the process of starting another one based on for my two daughters. But it’s always good to reflect on why you started your site in the first place.

blog

It’s always good to find reasons to start a blog but it’s also good to think why. Reflecting on the question why also helps you build your brand and think about what your site is going to be about. This brings everything all together. Therefore like your site name, what the name is about and niches you’ll build on.

5 Reasons
  • Therapeutic
  • Income
  • Build a Business
  • Hobby
  • Support

BLOG

Reasons to why

One of the reasons to starting a blog can be many, but one of the first reasons i have is therapeutic reasons. Using writing to destress is one of my top reasons to starting a blog. Looking forward to the afternoon or at the end of the night to write about one of my favourite niche helps me a lot. This can help a lot especially to anyone to needing something to just vent to. You can always start a lifestyle site.

Although a lot of people always say to start something for the love of it first some might want to start for income purposes. I mean why not? If your good at writing and marketing then go for it! A lot might turn to blogging to start a brand and business at home and make it a full time career. Or even if your a mom and need to be at home doing this can bring in extra income. Therefore turning something you love and bringing marketing or finding a way to monetize it is an excellent idea for anyone.

Building a business? Turning your site into a full time business can be a reason to start! Now I am just going to disclose that I don’t know much about business my husband knows far more than I do. Due to my profession I know a little. Building your own site off of doing something you love is a great start to putting yourself out there.

Now if your not into business related field or not that much into the blog world. Just doing it for the love is a reason to also start. You don’t have to build your site into a full blown business. Starting one just for the love and joy of it is a great reason. This reason also goes with my last and final reason which is support. Starting one can give so much support out there and help anyone. Building one for mental health, mommy’s out there or even writing about your life means something. You can be reaching out to someone, also supporting them in anyway possible.

In conclusion, there is several reasons to start. But all it takes is for you to actually start now! There is several people out their waiting to read what you got to offer. I hope I helped you in some way to start your site. Hopefully one of these reasons related with you. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to read my post.

Hello April Featured

Hello April

Hey everyone, welcome back. Hello April. A whole new month for more goals to plan and opportunities to take a hold of. I have a whole somewhat list of what my goals are this month and what I want to achieve.

Hello April
Past March Goals

Last month I am happy to say I reached my goals of where I wanted to be. Before I get into how I reached my goals I just want to say I am really proud of myself. I did not reach over a certain number I wanted but I did reach in a place where I haven’t been in awhile and I got the amount of views I wanted. March was a great month for viewers since 2020 has started.

Now I want to point out that from since this pandemic has started it’s actually a time for bloggers to actually get views and for their blog to get SEO. A way I noticed my month got in a ton of views was a lot of search engine search’s being up. I am now making sure my blogs are getting pulled up from searches due to a lot of people being home now. And of course Pinterest too which also works as a search engine.

April Goals

Overall for April, I want to keep the same goals in mind. I want to again for this month to consistently keep writing and planning more blog posts. I also want to keep working on my SEO on all my blog posts. Too many times last year I haven’t got to put in effort for my overall views for the entire month. Therefore for this year especially now since am home and stuck inside I want to take advantage of the time and work on my overall blog and fix whatever needs to be improved.

In Conclusion

In conclusion, for my hello april post. I would just like to continue to encourage you all to keep making goals every month for your blog. Remember to take advantage of your spare time to continue to improve your blog. Hopefully for this month I can achieve the same amount of views for this month like March. Or even achieve more.

Spring Textiles & Patterns

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I hope everyone is well and is doing okay with the whole staying at home quarantine. Spring is approaching and that means new wardrobe picks and patterns. I decided to do a post on spring fashion patterns and my favourite for spring. One of the fun things about fashion is there is no right no wrong. Fashion is something you can play around with, pick what fits your style.

spring fashion

When it comes to changing season that means changing patterns. I feel like that’s the fun part about fashion is playing around with your wardrobe. I love pairing different patterns and textures together. I’m going to show the current patterns and textures am feeling this year.

Textures

Firstly for textures, one of the big trends I’ve been seeing is sheer. I am absolutely loving this texture and look. I love how classy it looks and the cross between sheer and denim or even pairing it with another fabric. With this trend I see it a lot with florals, especially on Zara. This is a great look for spring. I’m overall loving this trend, let me know in the comments if you’ve jumped in this trend and is already rocking it. Or if you’re going to be this spring.

Spring Fashion

That being the case for sheer, another great leading trend for spring is Pantone colours. I don’t know how to feel about this colour trend to be honest and that’s because am more of a neutral person. I’d stick more with the classics.

Pantone colors is spring fashion. This is a color trend that screams spring in all types of direction. So when it comes to pantone color it is a basic color scheme for color industries. For example beauty, interior decorating, textiles and apparel. After doing some fashion research the classic color for spring/summer 2020 is the classic blue.

Spring Fashion

Now some of the trends coming for the 2020 year, you can be seeing

  • Color Denim
  • Platform Shoes
  • Upcycled Denim
  • Safari Utility
  • Environmental Fashion
  • Bra Tops
  • Big Bags
Denim Fashion

What are some spring/ summer trend you all are loving this year? And what are some trends you feel should not be trending? What are your go to colors? Please let me know in the comments! Thank you all for reading today’s post, I will be also be having a post up tomorrow also for the last day of March. Please do so in liking, sharing and leaving a comment.

Why your nails are not growing!

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. For today’s blog post we will be talking about nails! Nails is a big thing going on now either your growing your nails or some are going for acrylic nails. But I know some women can be wondering why are my nails not growing? Hopefully I can answer some of those questions. I just would like to make a disclaimer that I am giving info I have learned personally from being an esthetican.

Disclaimer: In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this blog post contains affiliate links and any purchases made through such links will result in a small commission for me (at no extra cost for you).”

Giving a break

One of the things I’ve learned since working doing nails and being educated in school. It’s always good to give your nails a break. Just like our hair and skin even our nails need to be nourished. I think we often do not know the amount of stuff we do to our nails can affect its growth, color and strongness. Working as a nail technician at the time i always would get large amounts of questions on “why are my nails are not growing?” or “why is the color not healthy?“. Even to “my nails don’t feel as strong anymore”. And my first answer is “have you gave them a break?” or “have you used your cuticle oil?“. And it’s always a no we often forget that are nails need care too.

Causes & Effect

There can be a lot of causes to why your nails can not be growing. I can’t get into all of them but we can talk about the most common reasons to why they are not. The number one reason now a days to weakness I noticed is a lot of girls and women love to wear acrylic. There is nothing wrong with wearing acrylic, most of the shops are not properly using the right powder and the removal process they do is damaging your nails. Repeating this process over and over is weakness on overtime. The process of wearing acrylic and getting consistent refills and not allowing them to get removed and giving your nails a break also allows weakness.

Discolouration to nails can be a few things for the causes,but the number one thing I noticed to cause a lot of it is not wearing a proper under coat. Before applying any color to your nails you need to always apply a under coat. This protects the nails from the colour being applied. If no coat is being applied nails start to get a discolouration and sometimes might tend to look yellowish. Sometimes yellowish to nails can be start to nail fungus, I just want to make a disclaimer that am not saying you do have it. This would be something your doctor would have to confirm.

In other words, another service a lot of women don’t know they need a break from is shellac. Yeah shellac. It’s a popular service but if you don’t get it properly removed and keep your nails no riches then your nails can get weak. Proper removal is using the shellac removal foils and letting them fall off. This protects your nail plate. Also remember to always nourish it after getting them done. Apply cuticle oil, any oils that are good for nails and rubbing I this around the nail plate and cuticle area. This makes your shellac last longer and keeps your nails strong and your cuticles from going dry.

Effects

Overall, I know a big thing that bothers us is cracked cuticles, split nails, hang nails etc. But the causes to most of this is dryness. If you don’t overly apply oils to these areas daily it can lead to these issues. Another disclaimer when trimming your cuticles you don’t want to overly trim to much off because it will grow back faster and thicker. This is because are cuticles are there to protect and if too much is take off it will grow back.

Conclusion

In conclusion, following basic practices of nail care and giving your nails a break can impact a big change on how your nail looks and feels. Another great tip to helping your nails are also just taking vitamins and keeping up with drinking water. All of this can result in better nail growth.

How I Self care with two kids

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Another Monday another week to get through. For today’s blog post I decided to post about my mommy self care routine. I thought it was a great time to post this topic due to being stuck in doors with two kids. Being a parent I know during this time it gets a bit tough here and there. My one year old was so use to morning and afternoon walks, so it’s a big change on changing up her schedule. So here i’ll share my tips on and what I have been doing during these times to keep myself sane lol.

Self Care

My Favourite Self Care

  • Bath/Shower
  • Music
  • Blogging
  • Netflix
  • Nails
  • Youtube
  • Games

When it comes to self care, I always make a routine around what relaxes me the most. I always try and do this now and then because I feel like it rejuvenates me right away. I am also really big on self care and winding down because I feel like I suffer from low iron so am sometimes tired and feel I have low energy. Therefore because of this I always need to find new ways to help me throughout the day.

Self Care

Taking a bath or a shower is my top go to for relaxing. Whenever I have the free time to go take a shower I take it. Yes, no matter what time it is to be honest. Take a shower and relax your mind. This can help you 100% for sure. Another thing I love doing while I shower is playing my favourite songs this gets me in a great mood. as I mentioned music, I love even playing that now and then. Even when my kids are around I play some music this also gets them tired afterwards and lets then wine down. Especially my oldest this works best because she active 24/7. Yes I can never get her to relax so the best ideas if you also have a son or daughter like this is to pick something that can help you both.

My blog. Of course this is another relaxation suggestion. If you are a mommy blogger like myself taking the time out from your kids if you can to work on your blog or organizing ideas for it helps. You can always get your kids to even help! If you love blogging mommy tips etc get your kids to give you ideas. To be honest kids are the best brain stormer to me. For example I love blogging lifestyle, fashion and beauty. Asking my six year old on fashion etc this can help me with my future post planning this can help the feel involved. In other words my next favourite is Netflix. I mean who doesn’t love to just binge watch movies now and then. Now and then I sneak off and just have some me time and watch a couple shows or movies. I find this helps me on my stress level and relax. Of course I also use this idea on my kids.

Involving the Kids

Nails, I don’t do as much but whenever I get the chance to do mine I try lol. But I mentioned it because I find this idea helps with my six year old. This calms her down also and it creates a mommy and daughter bonding moment. When I do my nails she always comes running in for me to do her nails also.

So this can be an idea if you’ve got girls. In addition, YouTube is added to my list because I love now and then on my spare time watching beauty channels. I absolutely love beauty so this is something I find entertaining. Another great idea where it can get all your family involved to relax but have fun together is playing board games. This is something my husband got me into because he loves board games. And I found this helps my kids have fun, us bond as a family and keep the chaos on the low.

Conclusion

Overall, it’s okay to have time for you during the stay in time. I hope my post gathered you some ideas and ways to relax and have some mommy you time. Also help you come up with ways to involve the kids while you all stay in during this time. I hope you all are doing well and is staying in and keeping safe. Thank you all for reading today’s blog post, if you haven’t read my last post you will find that HERE. Please like, comment and share!

How to grow your brows

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great relaxing weekend. So you want to know how to get thicker brows or at least get your brows growing! I just want to say whatever I state is what I did and it has worked for me and I noticed a change. So I’d be telling you how to came up with my theory and then get into the steps to achieving thicker longer growing brows.

Disclaimer: In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this blog post contains affiliate links and any purchases made through such links will result in a small commission for me (at no extra cost for you).”

Background to theory

So a couple years back when I started my program in becoming a esthetician we was starting to learn waxing. Now I loved waxing everyone else but my brows lol. I honestly hardly had any brows this was just natural genetic. I felt like there wasn’t much I can do with them. If I tried and shape them I just might lose to much hair. I still did wax them here and there I had no choice. I did end up liking the end results because it was much easier for me to fill in my brows.

Gaining Growth

So the trick I realized to gain the growth I wanted was one waxing and the second trick I was always doing was brushing my brows. Yup lol just simply brushing my brows everyday. This trick worked because your then stimulate growth. Also because I had to get them waxed that also played a part by allowing the growth to be fuller too. So doing these two things allowed growth and fullness.

Need a trick for doing your brows? You can ready my brow hack here!

Brow Hack

Oils for growth

There is also various oils out there that help with hair growth. For extra blood stimulation you can add oils onto your eyebrow brush. Doing this everyday or every other day will increase more growth. You can also apply it anywhere else you are trying to increase hair growth.

  • Lavender Oils

Hello March

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I can’t believe it’s March already . Each month I try to make goals and improvements towards my blog and social media. This helps me keep going and help me improve indifferent ways to improve and accomplish my goals I set. Sometimes I honestly don’t met my goals because life takes over. But new month so new goals and try again. So for this March post I wanted to share this months goals.

Disclaimer: In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this blog post contains affiliate links and any purchases made through such links will result in a small commission for me (at no extra cost for you).”

First Goal : Consistency
I always have this goal every month! I always try and show as much consistency as possible. The reason I always try and keep this as a goal is because it’s hard to get where you want to be if you show no consistency in your plan. Also because am a mother it’s hard to always be consistent because of course being a mother comes first. And sometimes things don’t always go as planned. It’s always hard for me to meet my goals and get my blog to where I want to be. For example I was suppose to have this post up for awhile now lol. It’s actually way over due but I’ve been super tired and drained from the week so it’s now going up now. But I’ll still try and practice consistency!
Second Goal: Planning

Now goes as smooth as planning and organizing. Planning and organizing my thoughts for the day, week and month helps me so much. And because if a busy schedule I constantly have if I don’t do this at least a bit then I wouldn’t get any posts out at all. I’d most likely just not bother and drop everything. I actually already started doing this for the month of March and I feel super accomplished and proud of myself.

Third Goal: Promoting

Okay, so this one I really got to work on lol. Honestly I don’t always got time to promote my content the way I want to.or at least how long. This year every month I want to really invest my time into networking and promoting my blog posts. I have realized I am not going to get where I want or the views I want if you don’t invest your time into marketing. It plays a huge role on being a blogger and I want to accomplish something towards my blog for 2020. Even if I have to try different methods I will.

Fourth Goal: Social Media

Social media, well to me kinda goals hand in hand with promoting. I know I already have to work on at least posting once a day if I can. Neglecting social media pages will lead to unfollowers and less engagement. So far I have been sticking to my goal and I have been posting everyday or every other day. Being a mom it can be hard to get content out there for your Instagram depending what content you do and using my planning method it has helped so much! I have content planned for the next for days at least. If you haven’t been following me yet you can find my Instagram HERE.

These are my main goals for March I love to follow every month. It has helped me a lot when trying to get myself out there. Nothing is more frustrating then feeling like your in the same spot and haven’t been accomplishing anything but I decided to live by these. Thanks for reading today’s post if you haven’t got to read my last please do so you can find that post HERE. If you have any goals set for this month please share. Like, share and leave a comment.

3 Blogging Mistakes

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. For today’s blog post I thought I wanted to talk about my three major blogging mistakes I’ve made. I’ve made a past blog post on things I wish I knew before blogging so I thought this would be a great next post. If you haven’t yet got to read that post you can find that HERE. Now the three things I’ll be listing are things I didn’t know about or understood when starting a blog. I just want to state these may be different towards you or other bloggers. Everyone creates their own mistakes and it’s just part of the journey of blogging. We all have to create mistakes to get better and improve. I am still making mistakes even now.

1. Proofreading

Yes, proofreading. I know you all or some are maybe like “how?” Everyone knows after writing you proofread your work. Well I hate proofreading and correcting and all that Jazz to be honest. And I honestly was never good at English in school and I suck at writing sometimes. I’ve always struggled with this at school and even as a soon to be 27 year old. That is what somewhat held me back from starting a blog in some ways but I decided to overcome that feeling and go for it. Thanks to my wonderful husband also when he is available he will go over my post for me and correct anything that needs to be corrected. But even tho I suck at it I realized as a blogger I need to make sure things are corrected regardless if I hate it. This will affect views and follows and I got to stay professional with my work.

2. SEO

Search engine optimization, this is something I totally didn’t know or understood about when I just started blogging. I would see a lot of bloggers talking about this and a lot of blog posts on this. Of course I did my research and read as much as I could about this and slowly started to grasp what search engine optimization was. Now with the help of plug-ins I make search all or least most of my blogs are SEO. Now whenever I don’t get blog posts up or it’s not a day i post I still get good amounts of searches on google. I am still always trying to make sure to improve my SEO writing.

3. Word Count

My third and last blogging mistake is word count. At the beginning of my blogging even still sometimes now I noice when I make some blog posts some are pretty short. I don’t know if I only do this but at the end I hate it. One of the things I wanted to try and do differently was make longer blog posts. For one it can increase more of my traffic and following and actually make people want to read my content. I didn’t want to be known for the blogger who make short postings. So I have made a change and increase my word count on my content and I have noticed a difference throughout the months. What I have done to help me was I would chose topics I can really elaborate on. It was the best way to change the way I write and it has worked so far.

Thanks for reading, I hope any of mistakes can help any of you that may be starting a blog or want to even start one. Remember we are all learning and it’s okay to make mistakes here and there throughout our blogging journey. Please remember to like, comment and follow if you haven’t yet! I always love to hear from you all. Comment any blog mistakes you may of had or found bit of a struggle? May even help me lol See you all in my next post !

3 Major things I wish I knew before starting a blog

Hey everyone, welcome back. First things first I was suppose to have a blog up Monday morning. But due to me throwing my youngest daughter her first birthday Sunday night I literally got thrown off schedule. I was so busy Sunday night I didn’t even get to start half of my post. I was deciding if I should put up Monday post for Tuesday and keep Wednesday post the same. But that would be too close of a catch up for me so I am now posting Monday’s post today Wednesday. For today’s post I wanted to talk about the three major things I wish I knew before starting a blog. Now this is going to be my raw thoughts based on my experiences.

1. Time

Initially I started blogging when I only had my oldest. At the time I started she was about four years old started school. I decided to quit my job and was fed up in my field of work and that’s when I decided to start my dream and start a blog. Now since in the days I had a lot of time of my hands I had time to meet my deadlines and post whenever I planned on posting. Now obviously things and life has changed but before starting a blog I never knew the amount of time in and time loss I’d have. Now that I am a mom of two I have loss time on post schedules and sacrifice uploads for sleep. I never knew the difficulties of blogging while being a mom and wife.

2. Traffic

Another major difficulty’s many bloggers have is gaining traffic. Being a blogger I have realized time and traffic go hand in hand. If you want more traffic and interaction you always need to put time in. This has been the hardest for me especially when I don’t get to make out time a specific day because that week or day can just be busy for me. Usually kids never really want to go by your schedule you just have to go with their schedule. Sometimes this makes me feel like am not getting anywhere with my blog especially if I see my traffic go down a bit. I always try and remember to try and motivate myself to keep going and remember why I started my blog. Another tip I use is to try and find the day and time I can fit in my blogging and social media time into my schedule even if it is for an hour. Sometimes I even include my mommy time, for example taking pictures of my toddlers outfits and using them for my Instagram post.

3. Interaction

In conclusion, the last and not least is interaction. I never knew how hard it is to get and gain social interaction on social media with other fellow bloggers. I find this the most frustrating thing ever being a blogger. I know it involves vice versa but i find it really irritating. It’s even harder for me being a mommy blogger since I can’t be on so much and I go M.I.A for a few days so I don’t get to interact online. Whenever I do I swear I get 0-2 responses back, I mean if I get 1-2 that’s a start but it’s really hard. The hardest platform is instagram and I know it’s not just me as a blogger but for a lot of other bloggers too. I decided to put in more motives when being more social online. I do admit that I am an introvert so I can be a little more outgoing and open online. I realized doing this can help grow my platform grow more and also for Instagram. It can also show my follows who I am more and it’s one way people will interact more with you as a blogger. Furthermore it’s the best way to overcome our challenges as bloggers to to change and find solutions that can work for us to fix these challenges we have.

Thank you all for reading this post. If you haven’t read my last blog post you can find that HERE. Please tune into a new post next Monday 9AM EST standard time. I hope you all found this post helpful, if you have anything you wish you knew before blogging please let me know in the comments! Please like, comment and follow! I always love to hear from you all!

Sephora Unboxing

Hey everyone, welcome back. For today’s post I am going to do a Sephora unboxing. I have not done a haul in a long while. To be honest I haven’t ordered in a long time from Sephora. I just haven’t had time even to do my make up since giving birth to my second daughter. But I have decided I want to get back into my makeup. I also really want to get into doing makeup videos soon. And of course I will let you all know when I start.

This will be so different for me since am an introvert. But it can’t hurt to try something new and who knows I might end up loving it.

Sephora

Mario Badescu

I got two products from Mario badescu. I am excited to try these out because I’ve been wanting to try his brand for awhile. But of course I didn’t get into buying it for the longest until now. I feel like am left out because I know so many people have tried his products already. Therefore I got his enzyme cleansing gel and his aloe cucumber facial spray.

The enzyme cleansing gel is a daily face wash that has papaya and grapefruit extract. This product is pretty much for all skin types also. This helps with oiliness, uneven texture and fullness of the skin. The papaya helps with the rejuvenation and refreshes the skin and grapefruit does the same also. But they helps remove the excess oil that is in the skin. And improve the complexion of your skin.

The facial spray I got is a aloe,green tea and cucumber. Anyone can use this product for their skin type. This product helps improve dryness in the skin and help wake your skin. The green tea in the product helps on antioxidant benefit. Cucumber replenishes and tones your skin and the peppermint drives a soothing feel. This brand also carries two more facial mists.

The Ordinary

For the last and final product I got was the ordinary niacinamide 10% + zinc 1%. This product is for all skin types. It is a vitamin/mineral formula made for skin with blemishes. This product will work best for anyone with high amount of oiliness and also work for pores. But like i’ve stated it can work for all skin types, but if you are a oily skin type this product is a must in your skin care regimen. Niacinamide is a vitamin that reduce skin blemishes on the skin. It also balances the high levels of sebum.

In conclusion, and that is my sephora unboxing haul. Thank you to all who read today’s post. I hope I informed you on enough information if you are interested in buying any of these products. I will do an review after trying out the products for awhile. Please like, share and leave a comment! If you haven’t read my last few posts they will be below.
