August| Bullet Journal Set Up

The thing I love most about bullet journaling, is that I can set it up however I need. I can use habit trackers if I want to this month, and next month I can completely leave them out! The customization is endless! I really don’t have time for fancy setups and doodles, so being able to use a setup with little to no fluff is great for me! Lets hop into my August spread!

Cover Page


My cover page is very simple this month. I used blue and pink pens to create a circle and blue marker and pens to write August in the center of the circle. I then created an overview calendar at the bottom of the page so I had somewhere to always see the full month laid out.

Goals + Setup


The next two pages in my journal contain my goals and my business, blog, and YouTube plans for the month. I always try to set 4 short term goals to achieve in the month. This month’s goals haven’t been set just yet, but I’ll be doing a post on them soon. My Business, blog, and YouTube planning areas are where I’ve realized I spend a lot of time brainstorming, so I dedicate half a page each.

Weekly Setup


My weekly setup for August is simple. I have a box for each day of the week on one side, and a place to journal on the other. I’ve found myself wanting a little more space in my journal to write down general thoughts or things I want to remember or meditate on in the future.

Instagram Tracker


I’ve officially be come “That” blogger. I’m currently wanting to grow my Instagram page and engagement! I’m now scheduling and planning my posts out so that I have a clear view of what works and doesn’t work for my Instagram!

Do you keep a bullet journal? What are your favorite spreads to incorporate?

A20 Liquid Eyeshadow: Review

I’ve been playing around with the A20 Liquid Eyeshadows for well over a month now. I picked up the two shades Wave and Thermo for a dollar a piece at Shop Miss A. Shop Miss A is a super affordable website where everything is $1.00! They have a more “professional” line called A20 where the items are a little more than a dollar but still very affordable.

Packaging


The packaging seems very cheap but super sturdy! The tubes feel very lightweight and almost empty. The lettering on the tubes will wipe off with much use, but almost all plastic tubing without a label will.

Pigment


I wasn’t wowed by the pigment of this product. When I think Liquid eyeshadow, I think of a base so shadows are more pigmented. These did not give me that effect. Thermo was super patchy and hard to build. Wave was slightly better, more opaque and easier to build up for the perfect base.

Finish

These shadows never really dry down and will transfer if not set with a similar eyeshadow. I always thought maybe i hadn’t warn the shadows long enough for them to dry down, but after wearing a swatch of Wave for over 8 hours it was clear they weren’t made to be worn alone.

Overall Thoughts? Will I Repurchase?

I don’t believe these shadows are something I’d be purchasing again. I love liquid shadows for a base for my least pigmented shimmers, but these wouldn’t do any better than them. For the price this is a “You get what you pay for” type of product. I’m not a fan of the way the shadows don’t dry down either. I’d give this product a 2/5 rating.

Hello July! June Goals:Hit or Miss?

Happy July!

I absolutely can’t believe that June went by so fast! Today I’m showing you what my June Goals were and letting you know if I hit or Missed them! Setting goals as a blogger, youtuber and business owner helps me keep track of how much I’ve grown or gotten better over time.

Well, here are my June Goals!

  1. Reach 1,500 followers on Twitter
  2. 830 followers on Instagram
  3. Stick to blog and YouTube schedule
  4. Make a cleaning schedule

Reason For My Goals?

Twitter and Instagram

Since starting my blog, have built up my following and engagement so I can better connect with my readers. I love talking to you all VIA Twitter or seeing what you all have been up to VIA Instagram. I have discovered that it is super hard to be active on 3+ social media accounts at one time. Being active on Twitter and Instagram connects me to some amazing bloggers and YouTubers. Which has inspired me and my content as well.

Content Scheduling

As far as my blog and YouTube schedule it’s been a dream. Pre-Filming and writing out posts and drafting them is the easiest way to get things done! In the past I was writing out posts the day of and posting and editing the same day. Being able to have time in between my content uploading on Mondays and Fridays has helped me have better quality as I can take more time to see what I’d like to better.

Cleaning Schedule

If you don’t know, I am a stay at home mother of two very active children. Trying to start not one…but TWO brands while keeping up with house work has been exhausting! Although, things have been a lot easier now that my oldest is on summer break there is always something to do. A schedule makes it easier to see what needs to be done and when.

How Did I Do?

  1. 1,500 followers on Twitter |HIT
  2. 830 followers on Instagram |MISS
  3. Stick to blog and YouTube schedule | HIT
  4. Make cleaning schedule | HIT
