What My Blog Taught Me After 2 Month Hiatus

I was skeptical at first when I was thinking if I will still continue blogging. I am not saying that I will quit but I was in the part of thinking where my blog will lead me. Before I just blog because I just love blogging and not because I want to sell something or whatever. It took me quite while before to plunge in once again in blogging. I am just happy that I logged on and in I felt happy when things become starting to become familiar again. I felt like I was spanked by the head and it technically told me to blog just to enjoy. I took a hiatus for two months just to think if I will continue blogging. I am thinking of quitting at first because I am starting to get gigs and blog invitations. I was starting to put my name in the blogging scene and slowly trying to fit in the industry. As I write this blog post here are things my blog taught me. 

Always commit yourself in something that you truly enjoy, always remember to enjoy in everything we do. We do it because we love doing it and not because we are going to get something great out of it. Forget blog recognition, popularity, press features, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Blogging is something should be light and enjoyable. Yes we look up to achiever bloggers who made a name in the industry and enjoying popularity. But remember they started blogging just because for a leisure or other mundane reasons they may have. Entering the blogging scene with popularity in mind will likely lead to failure. Some people might be thinking I have no right to say such a thing. Because to begin with who am I in blogging industry? Well that was my failure and now it took me two months to realize that blogging is for enjoyment. Blogging is not a place to be popular, to get recognition, and press features. Blogging is a virtual place where people have something to share to the world.

Thankfully we live in the time where self expression became more easier to access. Blogging is a place where people become united for something or a certain topic that they have in common. Out of blogging we be able to inspire people we do not know and we might give them motivation to go beyond their limit. I started to realize that my blog taught me to do something I wasn’t capable of doing. It might be far from saving the world. But it is me making a difference, I am happy that in my blog some people are inspired for what I post. My virtual diary is starting to become daily habit or source of happiness for some people. Like how I touched their lives in one way or another. It is me as a blogger I achieved my goal to make my readers inspired by my OOTDs, Make Up reviews, adventures and etc.

I would like to thank my professor Rey Belen for introducing us students to the world of blogging. I am grateful to be part of this industy where everything is beyond our imagination.

Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Clear Stick BB Stick Review

Una sa lahat hindi ako masyadong mahilig sa make up. Pero since tayong mga girls at girls at heart kailangan lagi oil and shine free ang faces natin. Kaya naman ever since naging uso ang BB Cream di ko ito pinalagpas. As in bumili ako ng BB cream from San San. Pero dahil medyo malaki yung packaging, di ko siya madala anytime anywhere, nadiscover ko itong bagong pakulo ng Maybelline. Oh siya tama na ang chika ko sa inyo, eto na ang verdict at review ko para sa product na ito.

(pasensya na po sa picture, medyo blurred dahil galing mobile, pero keribels na ren yan)

Product Name: Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Clear Stick BB Stick

Color: Radiance

Price: 250php

Weight: 10g

Oh ayan na ang mga facts about this BB Stick. Curious siguro kayo how this product works? Well as you can see 250 php ang product na ito. So medyo kaya na siguro ng bulsa naten mga te? Oh siya tama na ulit ang chika ko sa inyo. Eto na talaga pinaka aantay niyong verdict ko! Chos.

ipp

My Verdict

Pros

-Madaling dalhin kahit saan dahil maliit lang siya

-Madaling gamitin, swipe ka lang ng swipe sa face.

-Masarap ilagay sa face.No hassle.

-Perfect pag nagmamadali ka.

-Sure na protektado from harmful rays, hello SPF21 meron ito!

Cons

-Mahirap iblend (makikita niyo later)

ipp

Mga te ito ang hitsura niya pag nilagay sa skin. Very visible naman siya.

ipp

This is how it looks it like after blending. Unlike sa BB cream na mas madaling iblend sa mukha. Sa BB stick kapag blinend sa face mas di halata kasi swipe lang siya.

So eto na talaga ang final verdict ko. Kung gusto mo ng mas affordable at lesser hassle na BB. I highly recommend this product to you. Pero if you want more coverage for your face , then go for cream na lang.

Overall Rating: 3/5

This is the first time for me to post an outfit of the day without wearing make up. As you can see it is my bare face, no lipstick, no mascara, no blush on. I just want to try what I will look like in an outfit without wearing anything on my face. I am happy how it turned out. I felt great and confident about everything. As a contrary to what I look I decided to use the word “Fancy” as a title.
