Hello everyone! Today I’m doing new post that a lot of readers will find interesting. I get this question often from my friends or just people who follow me on Instagram. We all love pretty Instagram (follow me) feed, everything is just so perfectly coordinated with some nice and bright filter on, so you must think that everything is fabulous and fancy. Well I hate to break it to you, but no it’s not. Blogging is not even close to fancy, it is pretty much hard work and it takes a lot of time. I had some free time today so why not do this post. Let me know what you think about it, is it relatable? So let’s start with this post!
Let’s start with a fancy thing. Getting gifts and products to try is really nice. It feels great of course and I love every second of it. Also getting invitations for shows and bloggers party is amazing. Those are always fancy have to say it. I wasn’t actually on most of them just because I can’t make it, they are usually in other cities and I hate traveling by bus or train so yeah I miss most of those. Still they are always on point, food is amazing, drinks and yeah it is pretty fancy.
Then we have my room where I usually blog from. To be honest my room ends up in total mess when I’m getting posts ready for the week. My mom once came in my room and she legit freaked out because stuff was everywhere, I think that my floor was complete mess. Yeah taking photos actually makes a lot of mess in room. Cleaning everything and sorting out room takes up to an hour. Honestly if you would see me when I’m taking photos you would totally laugh. I m usually in my pj’s or in my onesie, hair messed up, no makeup having my camera and turning table all over room to find that perfect lighting.
Making makeup look is a tricky one, not gonna lie. You have to apply makeup first then, make sure that it looks great. Then I have to take photos. The worst thing is that my camera is pretty heavy and I have to keep it in one hand. It makes my arms hurt, believe me or not. Also, sometimes lighting just doesn’t work and makeup doesn’t show or it’s hard to make photos that represent colors truly. You may ask why I don’t use phone to take selfies, I just prefer the quality that camera gives. It makes really a true representation of makeup. It makes me look how I look in person and I don’t fool anyone to think that I have perfect skin. When I use my phone, my skin looks blurred and I just don’t like that. Usually after taking photos I take off makeup, so that whole work is pretty much wasted. But hey, I still get some cute photos!
When I’m writing blog post I’m usually in bed, having cup of tea and watching Pewdiepie or some series. When I’m writing blog post I like to multi task so hard that sometimes my post ends up all over the place, so I have to edit my thoughts and make it understandable. I’m not even going to write about stress to make everything ready and look good. That would be too much for this post, I already feel like I complained far too much. I still enjoy blogging so much, it makes me really happy.
