My Three Favorite Ways To Earn Money Blogging!

Thursday, June 20, 2019

If you're like me, you've always had the dream of working from home. That was always a goal of mine! And I'm so blessed to have that dream be reality. But if you're also like me, you probably thought that dream was unattainable. Good news! It's not! It's definitely possible to earn an income blogging. Here are my three favorite ways to earn money blogging. 

Affiliate Marketing // This one is definitely my favorite way to make money as a blogger. Affiliate marketing is when you are able to share a product that you love, and earn a commission doing it. This is one of the most popular ways make money as a blogger/influencer. There are many different affiliate programs out there. I personally really like using the Amazon affiliate program. 

Ads // I'm sure you've heard of this one already, as it's probably the most used way to make money as a blogger. I wouldn't necessarily recommend using ads if you're new the blogging world, as it does take quite a bit of traffic. But if you have a lot of traffic on your blog, this would be perfect for you! 

Sponsored Posts // As your blog grows, you will probably start getting emails from brands wanting to work with you. And chances are, they'll be wanting you to write a blog post for them. I could do a whole post on what to do if a brand contacts you, if you guys would be interested in that! Something to keep in mind, when a brand contacts you, it's okay to not work with every single one! Don't just work with a brand because you're gonna make a bunch of money from their post. Work with a brand because you trust them and trust the products they're selling. 

So those are my three tips to earn money as a blogger! I hope that these tips help you guys grow your blog, and make your stay at home blogging dream reality!

Huda Beauty Resting Boss Face Setting Spray: Review!

Friday, June 14, 2019

Today on the blog I wanted to review the Huda Beauty Resting Boss Face setting spray. This setting spray has been talked about a lot since being released, and has a lot of mixed reviews. So I wanted to share my thoughts with you guys! 

About The Product: This is an extra-hold setting spray, and also waterproof. It also gives a matte finish, which I love! This setting spray was inspired by a makeup hack used by drag queens, which is to set their makeup with hairspray. Huda also recommends spraying the setting spray on a beauty sponge, and applying the setting spray to the face that way. I haven't tried this tip yet, I've just been spraying it directly onto my face. 

My Thoughts: I really like this setting spray! I love the matte finish. I also really feel like this setting spray really keeps my makeup on all day. I've worn this setting spray on some pretty hot days, and it has kept my makeup on really well! I know one of the issues that a lot of people have had with this setting spray is the scent. I personally really like the scent. I don't think it's too overpowering. It's very floral and just smells amazing! J even smelled it, and really liked it. I can totally understand not everyone loving the scent, though. I just personally really like it. 

Have you guys tried the Huda Beauty Resting Boss Face setting spray? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

My Current Favorite Podcasts!

Tuesday, June 04, 2019

I love listening to podcasts! I love to listen to them when I'm on the road, when I'm getting ready, just all the time. So today, I wanted to share with you guys my current favorite podcasts! This is actually part two to a post that I did a couple of years ago. Which I can't believe it's been two years since I posted about my favorite podcasts! That's just so crazy to me! 

The Skinny Confidential: Him & Her Podcast // This podcast is by Lauryn Evarts Bosstick founder of The Skinny Confidential blog and YouTube channel. And her husband Michael Bosstick is an entrepreneur and also on the podcast. I like their podcast because they're real. Their conversations are completely raw and unfiltered. They talk about all kinds of different business tips, beauty tips, and more! 

Lauren Conrad: Asking for a Friend // Lauren Conrad's podcast was just released last month, but it's still amazing! I love Lauren Conrad. I have all of her books and have been a fan ever since her days on The Hills! This podcast talks about a little bit of everything from beauty to home decor! 

LightLoveandLace // This podcast is by Marissa Lace, who has been one of my favorite YouTuber's for years! She is such a down to earth and real person. Her podcast is all about spirituality and self love. Her podcast and Instagram have helped me become a much more confident person. I just really love her podcast! 

My Favorite Murder With Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark // I know, everyone is talking about all the true crime podcasts right now! I have to admit, I like listening to them too. This one is definitely my favorite though. Karen and Georgia tell their favorite true crime stories, but when they're telling these stories, they try to not be too serious about it. If that makes sense. I really like this podcast! I wouldn't recommend listening with children around, just because of their language sometimes. 

Do you guys listen to podcasts? What are your favorites? Share in the comments!! 😊
