The Idleness

I haven’t been doing too well lately. Unemployment is really starting to worry me, especially since it’s been over a month now and I’ve gotten only two interviews. I thought getting a job with my lip piercings alone would be difficult, but even with my degree and experience, nobody even wants to consider me as an applicant. It really sucks to know I’m qualified for jobs and then not even be contacted for an interview. What’s worse is that a lot of these companies still have the job opening, and it’s like, why not give me a chance?? I’m sure a lot of my readers can relate.

On top of that, my grandfather died last week. He was an important person in my life and even though he went naturally, it still really sucks that he’s gone. I wish I’d gotten to spend more time with him, and it’s a bit surreal that he’s gone. It’s also nearing the anniversary of my uncle’s murder, which always opens old wounds that don’t seem to heal. In short, it’s been tough.

Everything just really sucks. I hate to be a downer but I thought I’d explain why I’ve been a bit MIA lately. I have been buying some new clothes (against my bank account’s will) so I’ll have some new outfits to wear and post about.

On a lighter note, I started a new collection on Etsy for vintage products that I like but aren’t my size. Be sure to check it out and follow when you can.

Hopefully I’ll blog next week with a happier subject. Until then

The Youtube Venture

I’m not the biggest fan of Youtube, but it astounds me that people have made a very lucrative living off of making Youtube videos. Since I’ve had a few expensive occurrences come up in my life recently, I’ve been looking for ways to earn some extra income – so I thought of Youtube.

It occurred to me that lipstick swatches would be a potentially popular way to get views (and ad clicks), especially since I have quite a large collection of certain brands. My first video for Besame was so easy to do in relation to the swatches I could’ve done for liquid to matte brands. My camera isn’t made for making videos and it’s not the best, but I think I did an OK job.

Honestly, the Youtube family isn’t really something I’m interested in getting into, which is why I decided to start a blog rather than a Youtube channel, but I often feel that my written blog alone isn’t enough. I have a whopping 7 views on my video right now but after doing a little bit more research on video views and channel growth, I’ve decided it might not actually be worth investing my time and liquid lippies into videos that might only get a few views, save the few dollars I might make. But oh well. At least now I know.

So it looks like I’m going to stick to my little blog for now, and now you know about my little venture for the week. I have quite a few reviews and some pretty exciting OOTDs coming up, but as I mentioned earlier, I’ve been hit a wee bit financially so I’m trying to refrain from spending. Unit next time. ★

The Post-Thanksgiving Rush

I hate to admit that I splurged on Black Friday weekend – for myself. There were so many good deals going on and I couldn’t resist. Does that make me a bad person? I think not since I still have time to go Christmas shopping.

Anyway, I did something for my dad that required me to surrender my only SD card and I didn’t have time to buy another one until Sunday. In the meantime, I was able to get a few iPod pics of my outfits this week, but seeing as they’re not great, I’ll just use this time to express my excitement for the holidays this year – and also to let you know that I’ve been busy! With the holidays and everything, my schedule has been booked so I haven’t had time to blog or even put that much effort into blog prepping. My apologies but I do hope to have another outfit post next week.

You can look forward to lipstick swatches and new outfits to come, and I’d like to do more in “beauty” even though that’s a weaker spot for me. I tried a new hairdo today but not only did my hair not turn out the way I wanted it, I felt physically incapable of creating the hairdo – eep. (But that’s part of why I created this blog – to learn and improve.)

Stay warm, everyone!
