This blog post has been in the works for about a month now and I’m finally just writing this now.
There are things that I’ve stepped away from that I want to involve myself in again, and things that I want to continue on doing that I’ve started up as of recently.
This was one thing that I regretted stopping and i honestly think it was because i put to much pressure on myself to only use a set amount of products, and picked too many products for both projects (one that I started at the beginning of this year, and did actually do a couple updates, and one that I started last year, and never really made progress on at all). But this around I’m just going to try and work through a couple products that are older in my makeup collection (I literally have a palette from like 2007 that I haven’t touched…and it would be a great palette to use in collaboration to a matte palette, since there are only 2 shades that are matte and everything else is a simmer.) Now I know that we are coming up to the end of the year in like 4 months, but I still feel like I want to start this up again because I feel like if I use these makeup products every couple of days a week that I’ll be able to make a lot of progress on them.
Products that I want to try and make progress on:
Kat Von D Foundation
Bareminerals Moxie Lipstick in the Shade Fly High
Wet n Wild stick highlight
Trestique stick highlight in maldives lumescent
Nyx Dual ended highlight and contour stick
mac cosmetics strobe cream
Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Powder in the shade classic ivory
Now, I have done at least 2 uploads that seem to be back on schedule and I’m already struggling to stay up with at least doing 1 weekly upload (which seems like its going to range from friday-sunday upload) since I’ve been using my chromebook more than my older laptop, since the battery life is way better, but the only thing is that it doesn’t have the editing capabilities that my older laptop has (since it does have my editing software that I paid for), and I’ve been usually editing on thursday or friday and then taking the end product and uploading it onto my chromebook. Eventually I know I’m going to have to get a new laptop, maybe not as soon as if i was using that laptop more frequently, but still eventually because it has a bad charging port, which means the motherobard is slowly burning (i know this cause my mom’s laptop went through the same thing and my laptop has a bad charging port) and well my old laptop is slowly dying and I know I’m going to have to save up some money for buying a new laptop (a cheap one, but with just enough components to be able to edit my videos). With that said, I’ll still be using that slowly dying laptop to edit my main videos and my phone to edit down vlogs (cause let’s be real here, I talk talk talk and everyone doesn’t even watch the entire vlog so 15 minutes is usual enough for that) because uploading through imovie on iphone, you only get to upload 15 minutes max (don’t ask me why cause I have no idea why it’s maxed at 15 minutes). But that is my plan (for however long my old laptop lasts, if it’s not too expensive to get a new mottherboard for my old HP laptop). And after that happens if i don’t have the money, then I’ll just have to start filming on my phone for videos and then solely using my phone to edit out material (I mean use what you have right?). But in saying that I will try and upload at least once a week (some material might have a delay since its vlogs and other videos I’m doing). But look out for at least 1 upload a week, usually on the weekends on my Youtube Channel.
I know it’s not alot, but with my schedule at university, at first it might be hard to implement these things back into my schedule but if i just work ahead on school assignments I’m sure that I’ll be able to effectively implement these things back into my schedule!
Let my know in the comments down below if any of you haven’t done something in awhile that you want to put back into your daily or even weekly routine?
