Stepping back a bit...

I know I haven't been posting a whole lot lately. Mostly it's because I haven't been feeling motivated  to blog. I don't know it's just not as exciting as it used to be and it's beginning to feel a lot like work. Don't get me wrong I still love makeup and love sharing it with people but I think I need to step back a bit and not feel pressured to write about every single beauty purchase I make in great detail. I honestly have a giant backlog of makeup that I still haven't reviewed/swatched/opened. 

I think what I want is just to be able to enjoy purchasing makeup without having to worry about photographing everything before opening and using it. So for now I'm going to be stepping back a bit from my intensive reviewing and swatching. I'll still be posting every once in awhile when I feel like I must share something but not as often for now as I was before. Plus I really need to focus on growing my business and right now blogging is taking away too much time from it. 

Ok enough of that. This is a post I've sort of been sitting on for awhile and I'm not sure why I never got around to posting it. This was actually my first order from RockABetty Beauty. I ordered the Garbage Pail Kids and John Hughes collection as well as the LE Betty Vidi Vici eye shadow. The John Hughes collection and Betty Vidi Vici  are unfortunately no longer available.

Formalde Heidi - Light sage green with a gold shift and fuchsia, green and orange sparkle

As much as I love your blog, it's completely understandable that you feel that way. Blogging should be fun, and once it starts feeling like a chore I think it's a good idea to step back a bit. I look forward to reading your future blog post regardless of how frequently you post them :)

Oh, and about RockABetty Beauty, I recently placed my first order with them as well, and I love the things I got. I only got 3 shadows though: Archanger, Changeling & Nutella Whore. They're all beautiful!

I love the look of Betty Vidi Vici, Half Baked Betty and Some Kind of Wonderful!

What you said about feeling pressured to photograph things before you open them really made me think. I recently got my first box from one of those box subscription things and was so obsessive about photographing every detail before I could really open it. I think I need to relax my approach too! :( *hugs*
