Change of pace...
Nothing To Disclose
So life has been a bit crazy the last year, I've had a bit of stressful things happen as of late and I just find it gets kind of overwhelming to try and deal with online as well as real life stuff. I work 40 hours at a very mentally tiring job so by the time I get home I don't feel like doing anything (even taking care of my health). The stress I deal with on a daily basis has taken a toll on me in the depression department as well, so I've been fighting with that which doesn't help with the motivation of wanting to do beauty posts.
I know that posting swatches and review don't seem very time consuming, but on average I take 50+ pictures each time I try to swatch a collection. It takes forever to ensure the light is proper and that the true color of a product shows in each shot. After all that I have to go through each photo and choose which ones I want to use, then after that I have to crop and watermark them all followed by actually writing up a review/post.
Swatch posts probably don't sound too time consuming, but for me I want to show you guys how a shadow really looks. It takes me a while to actually swatch them on my arm (I do about 4 at a time to ensure I can get a good clear photo), then once I take the pictures I have to clean off my arm and repeat the process if I have more to do and doing this can take up half my day alone. With all that being said I find I love blogging so much, so I've decided it was time for a change of pace.
Some exciting news is that I will be going part time on May 6th, I will be working 24 hours maximum which will allow for time to spend with family, take care of my home, and my health. Another huge plus to this is that I will have time to devote to my blog on a regular basis, as well as to finally get back on track with youtube tutorials. If you haven't subscribed to my new youtube please check it out so you can keep up with the new videos that will start going up next month.
Anyway I hope you guys are all having an amazing weekend!
