Blog Update

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I just wanted to do a quick blog update somewhat of what has been going on lately. This will sadly affect my blogging schedule and I wanted to let you guys know ahead of time.

This last weekend my laptop has officially gave away and won’t turn on, am assuming I need a new battery. But my laptop has had previous issues also other then the battery giving out so I am thinking of just purchasing a brand new one. At the moment I can’t say when I am purchasing it so for now I will not be putting up much blog posts due to this happening. I can still do everything from my phone like me putting this post up now but it’s not the same to properly edit before publishing. You will randomly see spontaneous posts uploading it’s if I can get a hold of a computer not completely sure. I also had been so busy these last few weeks trying to get things done and it’s been so physically and emotionally draining especially since Toronto has been having heat warnings. I hope soon I can slow down and also get a hold of buying a laptop.

In Conclusion ..

I also still have unpacking to do, and then am also running around doing errands and preparing for a vacation me and my husband is taking for our anniversary. So it’s a lot to take in but I wanted to make sure I put out a blog update post so everyone knows whats going on. These changes will maybe be going on for the rest of the summer, hopefully things get back to its original schedule soon. I will of course still be active on all my social media platforms which you can find here Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you all for understanding, I will do my best of course on uploading as much content I can. I really do not want to delay much postings I will go insane if I am behind so I will make out the best I can do in this situation. Thank you all for reading, please check out my latest post, Blog Q&A. See you all in my next post!

10 Things I wish I knew

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another post. For today’s blog post I wanted to talk about the 10 things I wish I knew before I started blogging plus blog tips. I have been blogging about little over a year now and I am still up to this day learning about new things. And to be honest with you it is so confusing to me but I try and find my way around. I always tend to think about it as a world I am still trying to learn and figure out. Everyday I am always constantly reading articles and blog tips to educate myself and teach myself what I need to know.

Before blogging I honestly thought of it as you make a site and just write posts. I never knew there was so much more that goes on behind it. Like writing, promoting, marketing your brand and constantly trying to engage with other people. Who knew that you always got to constantly make sure your readers are engaged with your content and always trying to make sure your blog is generating traffic. But although I think about all of this I remember even the most top bloggers out there started just like me. Looking back at my very first posts and photography I have came a very long way and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.

My Top 10

  1. Time
  2. Money
  3. Marketing
  4. Promoting
  5. Consistency
  6. Setting up
  7. Devotion
  8. Balancing
  9. Being unique
  10. Always having to remember why you started

I wish I knew about the amount of time blogging involves, like I said honestly thought you just write a post and that is it. But I have learned its more then that and it all is just organising time. I have also learned that creating a great blog and having the right tools sometimes involves money. I am still investing and learning everything I need to create great content and site. And who know about the amount of time we need to market and always promote ourselves? because I didn’t lol. If had to chose my hardest struggle at the moment it would be constantly generating traffic to my blog. Also as bloggers we sometimes need breaks, I always take a break when its much needed but I always try to get back to blogging as soon as possible.

This helps your readers reading your content and not wonder where you went. Blogging sometimes can become a huge stress, but I always trying to continue to find devotion in what I do. And motivate myself to work everyday this i believe goes hand and hand with balancing. You always want to make sure you have a balanced life and time when you have self care and distress. One thing I always remember when it comes to my blog is always remembering to be and stay unique. There is hundreds of influencers and bloggers out there and the only thing that gets your readers is your uniqueness. No one wants to follow or read someone that is copying someone else or trying to follow someone else.

My last and most final thing I wish someone told me is that you’d always have to remember why you started. We get stressed out and frustrated and that is normal, and all we have to do is remember why we all started. And these are the 10 things I wish i knew, and the best blog tips I can share! Thanks for reading today’s blog post, please like, share and comment! See you all in my next post!

Sol De Janeiro “Bum Bum Cream”

Hey everyone, welcome back to anther blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone morning is going well so far. I am so happy to officially focus on my blogging again since I have moved last week. And it was absolutely tiring. I am back to my post scheduling already but for today’s blog post I am doing my review on Sol De Janeiro bum bum cream. I have in the past posted about when I got the product you can check it out here ” https://littleblackdress116079255.com/2019/05/02/quick-sephora-purchases/“. And now I am doing my offically review and thoughts on the product.

Sol De Janeiro

Now you can find the product here https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/brazilian-bum-bum-cream-P406080. At your local Sephora store, I purchased a mini because at the time I honestly was being cheap. The bigger size sells for C$59.00, which I am not to much feeling the price to be honest. Now the fragrance is a warm & spicy, but the scent is warm & sweet. The product is good for dryness, dullness and loss of elasticity. It is also made for pretty much every skin type out there. This product soaks in a fast absorbing cream, this helps tighten and smooth the look of skin.

Now to get the best out of the product is to massage the product in circular motion. You would apply this around your bum, tummy, legs and all over I am currently using the product around my bum and tummy area, mostly my tummy because of course I got two kids. My tummy area is not as tight as it use to be so I am so happy there is a product that smells good and also helps will this issue. The product is smooth and smells so good, it is not a greasy feeling and the scent is not to high. I always love applying the product right after I shower to get the most out of the product. This i recommend because when your skin is not to wet your product tends to soak in better.

I am really loving this brand, I am 100% looking forward to buying more of their products. This is something I would continue to buy often and restock, I give this product a 10 out of 10. Let me know in the comments if any of you have tried this brand or product. Or are you looking to try this out? Like & comment ! Thanks for reading I will see you all in my next post !

Quick Sephora Purchases

Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone week is going great so far, it’s Thursday already I feel like this week has been going by so fast. I have been so busy lately so much has been going on it’s crazy, I feel like 2019 so far for me been throwing a lot at me but I am trying to handle everything without freaking out. Sorry for the random uploads I have been trying to upload whenever I can as possible, I don’t want to abandon my blog and end up to busy to post anymore. I am in the process of moving and I am trying to find somewhere and still attend to my blog and social media pages while run a house and deal with my five month old. There is other things going on too but I won’t get into that as yet. But for today’s blog post I wanted to show my quick purchases I made this weekend, because I got I product I really wanted to try for awhile now and also wanted to see who else has been using this product or found it helps.

So I had to make a quick Sephora run this weekend, I had finished my eyebrow pencil and need a new one and one thing about me is if I am not wearing make up I at least need my eyebrows done and a pair of lashes and a gloss and am good. And to be honest am not a fan of dip brows or pomades or anything like that I absolutely hate them we just don’t get along and I can never get my brows the way I want them using those products. Also am a fan of a nice natural realistic brow, nothing wrong with a bold brow it just doesn’t suit me at all. So my favourite brow product I fell in love with that gets my the brow am looking for is Benefits precisely my brow pencil. I love it I always buy the $17.00CAD one, just cause am trying to save some coins to be honest. I find the fine tip is great for filling out the shape you want and doesn’t give a over powering colour to your natural brow, and the whole point to filling out your brow is to complete a full brow and fill in that choppy look. And I feel like that product does just that and maybe even more, it honestly lasts pretty long too.

So the other product I was looking to get is the Tatcha dewy spray, I wanted the mini size because I wanted to try it out first because it was between that or the new Anastasia Dewy spray. Unfortunately they stopped selling the mini size in the store and I would have had to purchase it online. So I decided to go with another product that I have been dying to try and I have been seeing it almost everywhere and heard nothing but good stuff about. So I decided to get the SOL DE JANEIRO Bum Bum Cream. So I heard that the product smells really good especially the body mist, I have got to smell it when I was at Sephora and let me tell you guys the things I have been hearing is absolutely true that body mist is one of the best smelling sprays I ever smelled. I will be going back to buy that spray, I decided to get the small $25.00CAD size. The reason I decided to go with the smaller bottle is to make sure I love the product, I have bought bigger sizes of products from Sephora in the past and end up not feeling the product. And one thing about me is I am one lazy return, I can buy products and if i end up not liking it instead me getting up and returning it or least switching I dont I throw it in the section of “not using”. I know Sephora has a return thing but I never take advantage of it which I should. But anyways I never tried the cream yet but I will do an review on it soon once I get a feel of how I like the product.
