Makeup Low Buy 2019

makeup low buy 2019 (2)

I lost my mind a little bit in the year of 2018, I’m not sure what happened but it was like I lost my self-control and I am hoping to curb that at least a little bit. So, today I am planning on talking about something a little bit different and that is my plan for a low buy in the year of 2019, part of which I am doing because I like reading other peoples plans and goals and partly because I think it’ll hold me somewhat accountable, so let’s just dive right in and see what all of my goals and plans are for curbing my makeup shopping this year.

March 2018 Lifestyle Favorites

Time for some random lifestyle favorites, a post that I enjoy doing but really need to get better at.

Also, if you want to check out last months post you can click here. But anyway, let’s get into talking about this month.

February 2018 Lifestyle Favorites

February LifestyleFavorites

Last month was the first month that I did a lifestyle favorites post, well, it probably wasn’t the first time ever but I’ve never stuck with these kinds of posts so I’m calling it the first. Mostly because I completely intend to stick around with these and do these monthly, which is something I am saying only have written one and now working on the second, but I have the intention of keeping this one up. Let’s not worry about that for now and instead let’s get into talking about some of my random favorites from February.

Blog Planning Tips

Blog Planning Tips

I’ve been blogging on ilikeitsparkly for almost two years now and I don’t think I’ve ever shared any tips or anything like that, probably partially because I forget that I can do things like this and partially because I am still not sure if I really have this blogging thing down. Either way, I plan on sharing three of my favorite tips for planning things on the blog.

1. Planner – I think this one is probably the most obvious of all tips, but it’s something that is super useful when it comes to planning. I guess you don’t have to use a planner, but an editorial calendar or something of the sort is really super useful. I use a physical planner and I plan out all of my content, keep to-do lists and really just keep myself super organized with this.

2. Spread Sheets – This is something that is super important to me in terms of planning out my blog posts from month to month, in fact, it’s probably the key thing to me planning my blog posts. I have a google spreadsheet that has every single blog post idea I’ve ever wanted to do or had on it, separated into categories and I even throw my drafts in there so I have a list of everything that I might want to do. If I have an idea, it goes there, it might not always stay there but it goes there and it’s super helpful.

3. Buffer – Or something like that, I personally use buffer and it saves me tons of time when it comes to planning out my social media content. On Saturday or Sunday, I usually sit down plan out a bunch of tweets and Instagrams for the week, get everything ready to go and then twitter posts for me and Instagram takes just a couple of steps. It saves me a lot of time.
