It is currently 1:28am Sunday March 22nd, 2020 and I am trying to get draft and schedule as many blog posts as I can during the self-quarantine. I have 66 blog posts scheduled so far. My company has been letting me work from home for the past week so I have been loving it. Not commuting to my office every day has blossomed my personal blogging time. Let me explain –
I have a normal day job – I’m a business woman working full time. My beauty blog hunnyy.com is my “side hustle” but it’s mostly my passion and keeps me living.
I discovered my love for makeup and skincare at 19 years old when I was in college earning my business degree. By the time I realized I wanted to make it my life, I was already 2 years into my degree and didn’t quit. I ended up graduating and earning a living 9 to 5.
Year after year I grew more and more in hatred for my job. I don’t want to spend my entire life doing something I hated. I have to make a change and invest more time to my beauty blog and what makes me happy. I have to succeed. I have to be happy.
I don’t want to be a “youtube star” or “instagram famous”. I don’t want people to love me or receive compliments. I want to make my life revolve around the beauty industry. I want cosmetics to be my career. I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen – legitimately though. I hate clickbait and using drama to make headlines. I want to review beauty products and create good content. Sounds so basic but that’s the best way I can explain it.
I want to be the most trusted beauty reviewer. I want to try every single cosmetic product in the world. I want to create my own cosmetics line. In the words of Sharpay – I want it all. <3
They say it takes 10 years of hard work for someone to become an “overnight sensation”. Well I’m about at year 3. Let’s see if I can get there.
What do you guys strive towards? Any advice for me? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
