Back by popular demand is this wonderful thing I like to call A Touch of Blush. It may be corny. It may be cheesy. It may even be basic; but that’s my life so. My delightful Instagram followers decided if I should post this with or without pictures, and a whopping 69% told me to still post it so here we are today, or tonight, or whatever time you’re casually reading this. I would say there’s more posts where this came from, but my motivation is so low it might take a hot second to produce more high-quality shiz. Hopefully this post is everything you had hoped for and better (If you expected something more on the Oprah level, you’ve come to the wrong place. This is more on the one-star Netflix original level)
Be prepared for the most exciting (and probably longest) blog post you have ever read *drumroll please*…. A day in my exciting life! Exciting may be a little bit of a stretch seeing that I do literally nothing fun unless you catch me on a good day. Fortunately, today was one of my free days so I actually did productive activities LOLOL. Read below to see what I do from (not really) waking up to (barely) falling asleep….. Enjoy!
M O R N I N G
My day usually starts out like any other human being, with waking up and asking myself if it’s even worth getting out of bed this early. Telling myself I’ll just sleep in for 15 more minutes turns into waking up again at 11:00 and wondering what the heck happened. Today I told myself that I needed to make this blog post look like I’m not lazy so I opted to wake up at 8:00 (it actually was 10 but I’m trying to seem like an inspirational person).
After checking social media for literally a decade, I get up and go shower. I brush my teeth, clean my face, blah blah blah, and then the best. part. of the day comes. BREAKFAST. If you know me even the slightest, you know that I could consume breakfast foods for the rest of my life and be completely content. Currently, I’m in a interchanging cycle of avocado toast, smoothies, açaí bowls, or all of them combined. If that did not describe the most basic human ever, I don’t know what would. Today I made a smoothie and also avocado toast on a bagel thin (I’m also a weirdo and put a mound of cream cheese on the bagel underneath everything, but don’t knock it ’till you try it). That trio is only if I decide to make food, though. I’m embarrassed to say this, but maybe three days out of the week I opt for Starbucks iced coffee and egg white bites to get me through my day. Someone please tell me how to break an addiction because ya girl is KNEE DEEP in a Starbucks addiction.
It is now time for the *second* best part of my day, AKA getting ready. I mean, I kinda run a fashion / lifestyle blog so if I didn’t like dressing up I think we’d have a problem (If I may clarify, this part was written a few months ago when I had my shit together, and now I don’t. So. Sweats all the way.)
If you wanna know what makeup I use I’ll link my past blog post right here that describes all my daily makeup items. But, after I spend a hot second making myself look not like a potato, I find an outfit that pertains to what I’m doing that day and attempt to make my hair look decent (I’m currently on day 8 of not washing it as I’m writing this post so… Houston we have a problem)
A F T E R N O O N
Now it is time to finally go out and enjoy what the day has to offer (in this case, it’s work work work work *insert Rhianna’s voice*) Some days, I sit in front of my computer all day and don’t realize where the freaking time went, and others I procrastinate and it seems like time just ISN’T MOVING. Working from home has it’s pros and cons, but a con is definitely procrastination. I mean, I’m still editing a wedding from May so if that doesn’t show how bad I am then I don’t know what does. Lately, my mom and I have been having editing dates at local coffee shops and spend literally 5 hours there. She also buys my coffee so I basically never turn her down.
If y’all were not aware, I edit and shoot wedding videos as a second job. I also sell wedding dresses but that’s not fun to write about. Self promo: go watch my vids here . My “work day” is basically done at around 5 or 6ish, which is when I go and rip my clothes off and change into my night look. You would think that would consist of a hot ass nightclub look, but no. I don’t really go out much. My night look is way cuter than that. (*cough* sweats *cough*)
N I G H T
After I get home and put on my favorite sherpa and sweatpants, I either spend some time doing homework (It’s summer, so like, I don’t do homework) or editing a video, or a mixture of both depending on how much work I have to get done. And as soon as I know it, it’s pitch black outside and basically time for bed. I know, like I said, I live a very interesting life. When I start to get tired I maneuver my way upstairs eventually and clean my face and whatnot before laying in bed and watching my daily dose of Netflix. Next thing I know it’s 1:00am and i’m passed out. Such a high content post!
