Getting Organized

Happy Sunday!!!

Since graduating I’ve been feeling like something is missing.  Maybe it’s the structure of having to always be studying or working on a paper or project.  It kept me busy and helped me enjoy my down time a lot.  Now I don’t have that and basically go to work and then get home and chill.  Thursday morning I was going through my old pictures and when I got to the pictures I took during the Fall of 2015, I grew nostalgic.  I saw all the pretty pics I had taken for posts and missed keeping up Makeup & Flowers.

Getting Organized

I got up that day and started reading a very interesting post (Plan you Blog Content like a Boss by Laura Rebecca Jones) that changed my Thursday from a lazy day to a very productive day.  Keep reading to see how these two things shifted my week and views on my blog!!  Continue reading

Returning to Makeup & Flowers

Long time, no blogging!!!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on Makeup & Flowers!! There are a couple of reasons why I have decided to come back but one major reason is that I’m about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree and as that time gets closer, I feel the pressure of finding a job and in the process I can start to feeling lonely, if that makes sense.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn’t have a job lined up after graduation but at times it feels like that.  Blogging helps me feel a sense of belonging and also a sense of purpose since I’m doing something creative that I really like.

Returning

I decided to come up with a schedule in order to help me keep blogging longer than once or twice so here it is!!  Continue reading

Sit Back Sunday #11

Happy Sunday!!

I am feeling very motivated this Sunday morning and one of the reasons is because I watched a few of Kalyn Nicholson‘s videos, which motivate me a lot!!  She is actually one of the reasons why I became obsessed with YouTube videos and why I started my blog!!  Before I let y’all in on my week, I have decided to change my blogging schedule just a tiny bit.  I know I had established a schedule already this past Monday, but I wasn’t really comfortable with it.  So now I will be blogging Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.  I have decided that I will use my Saturdays to take pictures and plan posts so that I don’t feel the stress of have to take pics on posting days.  I am hoping that by dedicating a day to planning, Makeup & Flowers will be even better!

Sit Back Sunday

So onto my week!!  If you follow me on Snapchat, you will know that I went to Shreveport and stayed at Sam’s Town. Continue reading

How to Deal With a Blogging Rut

Lately blogging has started to feel like a chore and when I woke up this morning I had something planned but I simply didn’t feel like taking the pictures or writing the blog out.

How to Deal with a Blogging Rut

This feeling started after Blogmas.  I took a very short break off of blogging and ever since then I blogging has felt like a chore.  While it has been feeling like a chore, I do start enjoying it again once I’m putting the post together.  The problem with this is that I don’t want to wake up every morning and feel like I have to blog because then it just won’t be fun anymore.

So while thinking about how much I didn’t want to blog today I started thinking about why I felt this way and what the difference is when I am feeling motivated and excited to blog versus now, that I am not so excited.

Keep reading to find out what to do when you are in a blogging rut. Enjoy!
