Q&A: Bakersfield Beauty Blogger

Wednesday means that the week is almost over! A couple of days ago, I hopped onto Instagram and asked my audience if they would love to read a Q & A and most of them said yes! If you would like to be a part of those polls, make sure that you are following me on Instagram. 

Now let’s jump in and get to know the girl in Bakersfield just a little bit more!

What primer do you use for a matte look?

I am in love with the Rimmel Stay Matte primer! It’s the best and super affordable.

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because, I needed some sort of creative outlet that I could be myself and really express my passions.

What was your main inspiration?

My main inspiration was honestly YouTube beauty gurus. I loved watching all of the beauty videos and all of the beautiful women getting to be their selves. I wanted to start a channel of my own, just needed something less intimidating. Then I thought to myself, duh! A blog is less scary, but still gets my message out there!

What advice do you have for a beginner blogger?

My advice to you would be to find your own style and consistency is key. When you are blogging, blog for yourself, cause it won’t be fun if you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Another tip is to use your tags! If you are trying to gain followers, those are how people are really going to find you. I can keep going trust me!

What is your favorite vacation destination?

I love going to the beach! I could live there if it wasn’t so damn expensive!

What is your favorite TV show?

I am so in love with Once Upon a Time! Hook is gorgeous and I love all of the fairytales! I am also loving Riverdale and Fuller House for sure.

So many great questions! Thank you all who asked me and wanted to know a little more about me. If you would like a part two, go ahead and leave some questions in the comment section.

Remember to stay confident!

 

7 Tips for Growing a Business While Working a Full-Time Job

Having a full-time job and running a few businesses on the side can be quite a challenge. I have; a 9-5 job, I run this blog, I am growing my Instagram account, I run a Poshmark closet, and I own an event and wedding planning business. All while being a wife to my husband and being a mom to my Rottweiler baby and my siamese cat. For today’s Work it Wednesday, I am going to be sharing a few tips with you that can help you work while you work.

7 tips

Tip 1. Wake up early

Waking up an hour earlier each day can give you the extra time that is needed to finish that blog post or post inventory that you didn’t have time to do the night before.

Tip 2. Have a daily routine

Having a daily routine will help to stay organized and make time after work for your business that you are hoping to leave your 9-5 for.

Tip 3. Set Goals

I know that I am repetitive with this tip, but I am going to share it again. Set goals for yourself.  Setting goals will keep you on track, with a full-time job, getting side tracked is a very easy thing to do.

Tip 4. Make time for your future business

Utilize every break that you have. Instead of playing Uno after lunch, pull out your laptop and get those e-mails out. Post to your business Facebook or Instagram. If you are a PoshBabe, share those clothes on Poshmark and figure out a way to make that sale. If you are trying to break 1 million Instagram followers, make sure that you use your 15-minute break to reply to every single comment.  whatever you can to make that extra dollar while you are not getting paid for that one-hour lunch break.

Tip 5. Set timers

Setting timers will also help to manage your time correctly. Give your self only so much time in the morning to do your makeup. Have a timer set for cleaning the house, that way you don’t stay up all night cleaning and getting carried away. Set a timer for daily meditation and affirmations. Saving time will help you succeed, remember, you have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce.

Tip 6. Keep a journal

Having a journal with you at your 9-5 is perfect for jotting down all of your business ideas. This tip is perfect for those that have the best ideas during very random times throughout the day.

Tip 7. Take a day off

Allow yourself a day off, if not, you will get burnt out fast.

Well, there you have it! 7 of my biggest tips for running a business while you have a full-time job. It can get hard at times, but just keep chugging along. You didn’t get this far, only to get this far.
