how to write a blog post

You think I’m kidding right now, don’t you? It’s really easy to write a blog post, right? Clearly if it were so easy this post wouldn’t exist. So you can thank all those bloggers out there that are ridiculous right now for this.

When writing a blog post it is very important to do the following (write these down, I am not playing):
                1. Use Paragraphs
                2. Spell Check
                3. Learn Correct Punctuation (I’m especially talking to all you ‘editors’)

I cannot stress the importance of paragraphs. So you’re getting a ton of comments on your blog but they have nothing to do with what you wrote, which is actually about how your boyfriend broke up with you, but everyone thinks your nail polish is super cute? It’s probably because your post is one long ass, run-on sentence that should be several short paragraphs. Do you get it? Because you are driving me crazy.

 Seriously, when I see blogs posts that look like that I don’t even bother reading them.

I don’t get this spelling thing. Yes, we all make mistakes but when you keep making the same mistake (macaroon instead of macaron) I’m pretty sure you’re a dumbass.

Most of you do not know what an em dash is let alone how to properly use one. Stop it. Also, please learn how to use commas. The Grammar Girl can help you with this. A little trick, which isn’t always correct but is better than what you’re doing, is that you need a comma anyplace you’d naturally pause when speaking.

So when you went to the mall last week to look at dresses for your next outfit post and couldnt find a single thing that you liked cuz all the stores didnt have the size that you need because your a really weird fit would definitely benefit from some punctuation and use of the English language.

 In conclusion, I’d like to stress the fact that you are not an editor and you need to turn word verification off or I might just kill myself.

my natural beauty routine

I think it’s very important to know what you’re putting in and on your body. I’ll admit that sometimes I take this to the extreme, but more often than not, I just try to keep it real. Overall, I believe in balance and I’m no fool. I fully understand that there are certain things out of my control. However, my beauty routine is not one of them.

Let’s get real, I use a lot of products. I like having options, so sue me. I think it’s good to have an array of products in your arsenal for when you’re skin is extra dry or randomly breaking out. I’m always prepared, like a boy scout.

Obviously, I love Korres. When you find a winner, you’ve got to stick with it.

The Milk Proteins Cleanser is amazing for more than one reason. It’s super gentle yet effective and I love that it’s a foaming cleanser. I don’t know about you, but I like to tell that my cleanser is “working”. Best of all, it doubles as a makeup remover. My laziness adores this cleanser.

I’ve been using the Quercetin & Oak line for over a year and I love it. It’s amazing for dry skin and works wonders with fine lines. The eye cream definitely lessens under eye circles. Let the record state that I do not have “dry skin”. I have 100% combination skin and this is awesome.

Josie Maran rocks my world. Seriously. I adore this SPF moisturizer. It doesn’t make my skin greasy but instead an awesome dewy look. Also, it’s SPF 40 so we’re not messing around and it smells good too!

Argan Oil is a necessity in any beauty regimen. I use this at night. You can get this almost anywhere now.

I don’t have acne but my face does break out occasionally and I love acnevir because it contains sulfur which might not smell great but does it’s job on the asap. They also sell this at select Bed, Bath & Beyond stores (I don’t know if we’ll have time).

Does anyone have any questions, comments or concerns?

celebrity doppleganger

Since I’ve started working at BaubleBar, I can say that my presence on the internet has skyrocketed. You may have seen me on your friendly, local Facebook page or your instagram feed ‘modeling’ some fly ass necklaces.

You’ve seen them and you’re jealous. It’s okay, it’s totally normal.

Anyway, I have noticed that people love to play celebrity doppelganger with me. Giving their two cents as to whom they believe me to look like.

On this photo two people thought I looked like Sophia Bush, which is not one I usually get.

And here we have one vote Heidi Klum, and one vote Mary Louise Parker.

Now the normal celebrities are Heidi Klum (aka the best compliment of all life), Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Love Hewitt oh and some slore named Victoria Justice who I don’t know anything about.

What say you?

Also, don’t miss my guest post over at a {little} dash of ash today! I’m participating in her Summer of Prep series which is a lot of fun!

Ps – hair tutorials coming soon! Get excited, bitches.
