    The Most Annoying Things About Blogging

    Blogging - The Most Annoying Things About Blogging | Travel Beauty Blog

    Blogging

    When I started blogging in early November of 2016, the main reason was to fill the void of living alone. Sometimes I felt lonely, depressed, bored and a lot of other mixed emotions. In order to curb the situation I decided to adopt a new hobby that turned out to be blogging.

    At first I was skeptical about putting myself out there in front of a bunch of people that I did not know. But as time went by I realized there were far more people in the world who Blog as a career. Realising that I wasn’t going to be alone on this new journey, it gave me a sense of hope.

    Four months later, I began feeling overwhelmed about a lot of things, for instance:

    1. having my blog look a particular way
    2. selecting a niche
    3. coming up with relevant topics that would interest readers and
    4. finding ways of monetising my blog etc

    There came a time when I had hit an all time low and took a break from it all. Re-prioritized my life and came up with the best tips for managing a blog part time. Every now and again I have to revisit this list to remind myself why I started blogging in the first place.

     

    Here are some of the challenges I have faced over the past four months as a Blogger:

    How To Style And Maintain Naturally Curly Hair While Traveling

    How to Style and Maintain Naturally Curly Hair

     

    Traveling With Naturally Curly Hair

    Let’s be realistic for a moment. Natural hair is a job. It’s beautiful and freeing to be able to wear our hair the way God created it, but it takes a bit of work to manage at times. It’s easier when you’re in the comfort of your own bathroom or salon, all necessary products on deck. Managing natural hair during a trip is a different ball game.

     

    When I first decided to “go natural” almost five years ago, I didn’t think much about how I would style it while traveling. After many road trips, hotel stays, and some plan rides in between, I’ve had some experience with finding the best ways to maintain natural hair while traveling.  Here are a few styles, hacks, and secrets about how to maintain naturally curly hair while traveling.

    Friday Night

    Friday after work I headed to the Mall to do a little retail therapy. Before leaving I made a quick stop at the supermarket to pick up some items. I arrived at home ten minutes later, put some clothes into the washer, packed the grocery items neatly into the cupboard, took a shower and made a quick dinner.

    Usually I look at a movie or series on Netflix to set the mood for the weekend while enjoying bag of popcorn, my favourite snack.

    YSL Beauty Products Review

    Before I begin the YSL Beauty Products Review, my go-to makeup Brands are MAC and Maybelline. The majority of my beauty products are from these 2 brands. Not that I have anything against other popular Brands. But this is mainly so because I am not one to experiment a lot. Also I can almost find anything to match my skin tone from these two.

     

    When it comes to trying new foundations and powders I like to stick with what works for me unless its a word-of-mouth recommendation. Unlike foundations and powders, eye-shadows and lipsticks are much easier to manipulate if I buy them and don’t like them. Bottom line is makeup to too expensive just to try.
