Whenever people ask what I do for a living and I respond with “I’m a blogger”, I tend to get blank stares and confusion. While some people counter with actual interest into what I do, others just assume I sit around all day and write-up a few blog posts here and there. Yes, obviously I write blog posts, but blogging as a career goes far beyond simply sharing my opinion. A ton of time, energy, and research goes into every piece of content I create, and A LOT goes on behind the scenes. My blog is my business, and I treat it as such. Today I’m going to give you a peek into what a typical day is like as a blogger and small business owner, and how I find time to refresh my beauty routine even during the busiest of days. I mean, I am a beauty blogger, you knew I’d incorporate beauty somehow!

I’ll be honest. I love to snack. Since I work from home, the likelihood of me heading into my kitchen for a snack 240x a day is pretty high. Maybe I’m exaggerating, but you get the picture. The problem is I either don’t have any snacks on hand, or I end up eating junk food all day long. It’s definitely a bad habit. Luckily, I recently discovered Graze, a healthy snack subscription service.

Aside from the obvious packing aspect of preparing for a trip, I like to step up by beauty routine. Before a vacation, I make a point to try to look and feel my best. I add four extra steps to my beauty regime, focusing mainly on skincare.

Say what you want about the Kardashians and Jenners, but Kylie’s cosmetic line has become an instant favorite. I am constantly on the hunt for the best nude shades, and she has seriously delivered with each release. Since posting my review on the original lip kits she launched, I have tried another shade of her Matte Liquid Lipstick, and all three of her new glosses.

About three years ago I started a series dedicated to finding dupes for popular MAC lipstick shades. I was recently organizing my Pinterest boards and discovered the series has been pinned over 40,000; crazy right? While I took a brief hiatus from the series, I felt I owed it to my readers, and myself to continue it. The series is an A-Z guide and today I bring you I + J. Feel free to check out earlier posts from the series here.
