3 Day “Post A Quote” Challenge [Part 1]

PostAQuoteChallenge-1

Thank you for tagging me to do this challenge Janice and 4 Year Old Adult! This is a great idea, I always come across so many different quotes that I never really share so this is an amazing way to do so!

For this challenge, simply post a quote of your own or other people then tag three people per post and post three days in a row.

“Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.”

I tag AlyssaSassafrass and Sophie!

All About The Blogger Tag

AllAboutTheBloggerTag

Bella from BellaNinaBeauty tagged me to do this and of course I never turn down tags so here are my questions to the questions!

1. Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog to just use my time more creatively. I’ve had interest in doing beauty reviews online since probably around 2008 or 2009 and I always held it off until I suddenly decided one day this year to just give it a go. =)

2. Do you like your blog name?
Yes, I definitely do like it! It’s a name I’ve been associated with for awhile now so I would never not like it.

3. How long do you plan on having your blog?
Definitely as long as I can! I don’t plan on deleting it anytime soon or at all!

4. Where do you get your inspiration (for your blog) from?
I’m not entirely sure. I didn’t draw inspiration from anywhere in particular! I’ve just always loved everything pink and girly. =P

5. Do you normally create an outline before you do a post, or do you just go with the flow as you make the post?
I always go with the flow in my own posts but if I’ve been approached by a company or a representative then I do make sure I have an outline with me so that I cover all the points they need and want me to!

6. How long does it normally take you to finish your posts?
It depends on what kind of post I’m doing. Normally I can get a post done in an hour or so but I do tend to break it up into several seatings so I can’t completely calculate how long exactly!

7. How many times a week do you try to post?
I definitely try to at least twice a week!

8. Do you find it hard to maintain your blog?
It is especially difficult when I have other commitments but it’s not something that bothers me just because I love blogging so much.

9. If you have one, what is your follower goal?
I want to hit 5,000 followers!

10. Who do you tag to do this next? (Optional)
Absolutely anyone who is reading and wants to do this tag too!

Compliments That Aren’t About Physical Appearance

Compliments

A lot of the time we get complimented on the way we look and we start to think that it’s the most valued quality about ourselves but it’s important to notice how skilled we are and how empowered we are as individuals. I found this list below that has a number of compliments we can start using that focus on how great we are on the inside. I hope that all of you will be able to use these compliments from now on! =)

Beauty Bares All Tag

BeautyBaresAllTag

1. Spring, summer, winter, or fall?
Definitely spring for me! I love wearing dresses and I enjoy warm weather that isn’t too humid. =)

2. What does your ideal date notice and compliment you on?
Probably just that I simply look nice to be honest! It shows that they’ve noticed I’ve put in the effort to look good and presentable!

3. Would you rather give up lipstick, hair products, or mascara for an entire year?
Probably hair products! I really rarely use them anyway! If anything, I only use heat protectant on occasion. =P

4. If you could leave just one message for the world to hear, what would that message be?
This is so tough, I’ve never really thought about it before. It would probably be something along the lines of, “always keep pursuing whatever your heart desires no matter what anyone says and no matter the circumstances because no hard work goes unpaid”. I guess it’s a really cliche message but I think it’s really important!

5. A genie appears and offers you a wish. What one beauty task would you never perform again?
Doing my brows! If I could have flawless brows, that would be amazing haha.

6. You have two options: money or happiness? Additionally: infinite wardrobe or flawless face?
Definitely happiness! More money, more problems. =P And to be honest, just being simply and genuinely happy is the best feeling in the world. I don’t know who else would be on the same side of this with me but I would actually probably prefer a flawless face!

7. Are you a tea lover, a coffee hound, or a fan of something stronger?
I’m definitely 100% a tea lover. I love drinking green tea daily, even more so now because it’s getting colder here!

8. Have you had a “perfect day”, and what did it entail?
Wow, this is so tough. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever really had a “perfect day” before. (Sorry for the super disappointing answer!)

9. What do you splurge on the most?
Definitely lip products. I just can’t get enough of them and it’s a problem!

10. I have not lived until I’ve seen _____!
Disneyland. I really need to go there right now!

11. What are you guilty of doing when nobody’s watching?
Dance! LOL I think dancing is really fun but I’m definitely not the best at it and wouldn’t want anyone to see. =O

I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve done a tag, I had a huge phase of posting so many different ones before! =P I missed posting these and I always receive such positive responses from them so I hope you enjoyed this one too! =)

Update: 6 Month Blogging Anniversary & I’m Back!

6Month

I finished my exams yesterday and I am so glad to have my time and freedom back! =) I also realised that during the time I was gone, it was my 6 month blogging anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already, time has flown by so fast in not just in how long I’ve been blogging, but also just how fast the year has gone by already. As always, I really do thank each and every one of you for supporting me throughout this time and also being so incredibly understanding of me having to take time off so I could study for my exams. It really does mean so much to me, words really cannot explain how grateful I am of all of you guys!

Now that I have a lot more free time, I will be posting more often again! I have been slacking off on reviews because if you haven’t read in my previous posts, I did lose my phone a few months ago and now that I’ve been using an older phone, I’m no longer able to take good quality pictures of my face. =( I’m still working around it and as soon as I figure it out, I will be doing more reviews again! I have a lot of products from my last haul that I want to update you guys on and I really want to write about them. Anyway, despite this, I am planning on coming up with more new posts for you guys that I hope you will look forward to and enjoy! I hope you’ve all been well!

How To Stay Awake!

HowToStayAwake

Hi guys! I’m currently on my study vacation and I have exams starting on the 17th and finishing on the 26th! I can’t wait to finish so I can post a lot more often like I used to! Now that I’m trying to stay up a little later than usual, I was looking for some tips on how to let myself not sleep so early and I came across this list. =) I hope you’ll be able to use them on times where you really need to stay up a little later than usual to do work!

1. Avoid rooms that are overly heated or warm. Open windows to keep fresh air coming in.

2. Splash cold water onto your face.

3. Physical exercise or warm up. You can do a few jumping jacks every 1 hour or so to keep the blood moving in your body.

4. Listen to music. Boring or overly mundane tasks can cause you to tune out. Hence, listening to music can make your brain more active again.

5. Get a laugh. It wakes up your brain. You could do this by watching something funny on YouTube before you start studying.

6. Draw inspiration from somewhere. Sometimes you feel tired because you lack ideas or interests for an activity. As a result, your brain naturally shuts down to prevent you from wasting energy on something non-rewarding.

7. Bright room can make you feel more alert. However for night owls, bright room might decrease your ability to focus. Hence, use a dim room if you are a night owl.

8. Eat nutritious low carbs snacks such as raspberries, apples, oranges or grapefruits. They are great energy boosters and do not take up energy to digest.

9. Obviously ensure that you have had enough sleep. However, don’t sleep too many hours, because too much sleep can cause you to become even more sleepy.

10. Drink coffee but don’t rely overly too much on it as you can develop dependency.

I hope these tips will be able to help you as much as they’ve helped me! Once again, I do have to apologise for not posting very frequently but I definitely will when I find the time again! ♡
