Burning Midnight Oil: Me time

Are you a morning person or a burning midnight oil owl? I’m known to be a night oil and ask for everything to comprise in the afternoon. Evidently, waking up at 10:30 every day this week was brutal for me. This post is for ones who are curious about what I do with my time, as I burn the midnight oil.

By the way, I can be up till seven in the morning before the thought is going to cross my mind. My energy comes at the end of the afternoon, into the evening. Also, my bird wants to be tucked in from 9:30 to midnight. That’s when I greet the quiet and start working.

 

Over here obtain a list of what I do during my burning midnight oil time:

Midnight Empire-ing:

 

First, I work at night when it comes to Creating Jenni. Georgie Bird demands my hands propping her, not typing on a laptop. She gets extremely annoyed when the screen is on, and not dedicating her to my extensive attention.

Some common things are my socialsmy emailsmy start-up business, and other things I’ll be sharing on the list.

Midnight Planning:

 

 

I love this weekly planner from Amber Housley. It makes me remember the good, not just the extreme in a business.

Undeniably, there is a special place in my heart for planning. Even using different colors for different things and multiple at the same time.

 

Midnight Subscribing:

 

Ever since I started my blog about 4 months ago, I‘ve been subscribing to other bloggers. At first, it was about how to be successful with a blog. Now that I have other needs to look into, I have been getting suggestions from Instagram and Pinterest. Ads know you have been looking at something earlier and make sure you know. Taking advantage of these sometimes and watch for the ads only. I’m going to try really hard not to fangirl, but show their amazing content.

Also, I’ve learned not to take subscriptions for granted. withhold them in their specific folders to look back on for later. You may not need anything at the moment but need it later.

Midnight Printing:

I have been printing out lists from my email on planner paper. I love this spring cleaning list from Abby Lawson.

At length, I take the subscribers’ emails to quite a level; I print everything out they have to offer. I think of blogging as going to college; cramming information down my throat, highlighting key points, and making a book out of them with 3 book rings. Some of them, I print out as books themselves, and some I print out to constantly utilize with me for ordinary reference.

In addition, every email has helped in some way to achieve my goals. Whether it’s from a printout of what they are going through at the moment. It means a lot.

Midnight Streaming:

Particularly, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu…Anything to listen and or watch in peace, without a bird screaming to tell me the video stopped.

Midnight Sewing:

Generally, I’m always sewing something with floss, especially love to embroider and customize. I don’t know how to use my sewing machine, but I can work a needle with chunky floss.

 

Midnight Shopping Online

 

Honestly, does anyone else love shopping online? But it isn’t what you might think, though. It’s usually office supplies, planning suppliesAnything productive. I love supporting small businesses and have realized I need to do it more often. It just makes more sense as a new small business myself.

 

Midnight Self-Care:

Done shaving my face. Maybe I was born with it?

On the whole, his one is a little different than what other ladies might do. I like shaving my head at night. Ever since I havedue to Fibromyalgia and having hair hurt, shaving at night is like taking off the stress of the past few days. My head is starting over and so is my stress. I‘ve noticed lately if I shave my facemy acne goes away too. I have notoriously prone skin and am surprised something worked.

 

Midnight Snacking:

Noteworthy, snacking is important. Even though doctors say not to. Who is not eating 12 hours after dinner till breakfast? That never made sense to me as a child. If you’re starved, eat. By the way, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches remain my favorite personally.

Hopefully, you had fun reading this post, as I did make it. Farewell for now.

Always,

What’s in my makeup box:

It’s been a long week, and am starting this at 2am on Sunday, the day I am supposed to be posting this blog. Georgie had been very needy, and haven’t been able to get anything done. I’ve been up till late hours, trying to catch up on emails, creating a twitter account, and anything else that requires maintenance.

I thought my makeup box would be an easier topic, but I was quite wrong. I didn’t realize that I should be making an intake of every product, and that doesn’t include the pictures and collages I love to make as visuals.

So, this is my makeup:

The Box: I love my hat box. I had gotten it from a thrift store, and have used it for various things, but love the makeup in it the most. The red bags are quite a common theme on my blog from Dollar Tree. They really are some of the best things I use for storage. A glance, before diving in.

These are pictures of what is in my makeup ox, the top of the box, and the top of my makeup brush pencil case.

Eyeshadow Pallets: I am all about creating, and that also categories confidence. My favorite is eyeshadows; I can put on one color to feel good for the day, or sit down, and play for a while. I tend to make a look on each eye, then take it off for bed. Colors are a big thing for me, since they set moods, and eyeshadow is perfect for that. I have been picking out specific colors on Amazon for the exact mood I’m looking for; lately, it’s been purples and pinks. I got what I needed for purples, but the pinks in a pallet had broken, and took that as a sign to find something a little more encouraging for my pink search. I don’t like to keep things I don’t use, so this is my small stash of fun. Looking for pallets with certain colors, makes a huge difference in knowing if I’ll use them, instead of just going out and buying something on trend. Getting something that just came out is super fun, but for me, it isn’t usually practical on a super tight budget. (Pictured: Tati Beauty, Hard Candy, Colour Pop, Urban Decay, Wanqi’u Hongfeng, Remmel, Ulta Beauty, Milani, Revlon)(Ps. It makes me so sad, when pallets fall on the floor and shatter.)

These are all of the pictures of my eyeshadow pallets. They are displayed as open and closed.

Single Eyeshadows: I like knowing I can buy something very specific, when it pops out. I might see something that catches my eye somewhere, and pick it up. This is what happened with my midnight blue. (Pictured: Maybelline Color Tattoo Trailblazer)(Ps. I love how the photo touching got the color and texture just perfectly out in this shadow.)

This is my single eyeshadow by Maybelline Color Tattoo Trailblazer.

Highlights: I like to use eyeshadow along with my highlighters. Anything that makes me feel pretty. They can be nice for shadows too. Sometimes, one color for the day can just be a highlight. (Pictured: Younique a la mode, Ulta Cosmetics)(Ps. Another sad, broken piece.)

This picture is of my 3 highlighters: 2 Youniques and an Ultra Cosmetics.

Eye Primers: I have dabbled in a few of these wonderful things, since my hooded lids can make everything a mess. It can really make a difference with textures of all kinds, when blinking makes everything fall out. (Pictured: Amazing Cosmetics, Nyx Glitter Primer)(Ps. The tip broke off, and this tiny baggie fit it perfectly at the bottom.)

Eye primers area must for my very hooded eyes.

Mascara: I have super long, natural pixie lashes. It’s nice to dress them up by really make things dramatic, and tie everything together. My favorite is the Wet N Wild Mega Length Waterproof Mascara. With drama in the lashes, it goes a long way with different colors. I would like more color variety, but I really like when the mood calls for something bold. (Pictured: Wet N Wild Mega Length Waterproof Mascara, Wet N Wild Colored Mascara, Hard Candy Be Bold Color Mascara, Hard Candy Bold Glitter Mascara)

Lipsticks: I love dressing my lips. I haven’t been able to show them off this summer with the mask thing lately, but have promised myself, I need to start caring about my confidence again. Even if the bird tries to lick it. It feels good to put something on, and know you can rule the world with anything that makes you smile, and a pretty color to match. (Pictured: Ulta Beauty, LA Colors Shiny, LA Colors Lipstick, Wet N Wild,Almay, Sephora, Motives by Loren Ridinger, Sephora Lipstain, Ick lipstick pallet)

This is my nice variety of lipstick colors.

Lip Liners: This can be an annoying one. I have thin lips, so color can really make them look funny, especially the darker colors. Liners really make a difference on that front. I love my Almay lipstick, but it makes my lips look smaller. A liner can help make the edges a little lighter, and create a better look. They are also great for making more than one color shine. Another pink to match your lip shade, and confidence may soar.

Lip liners are something that can create a whole new look for me.

Blushes and Bronzers: I tend to change color, when I don’t feel good. Blush and bronzer help make me look like I’m not a ghost with a headache. I like that it can bring my face in to its natural long shape, when it decides to have many shapes all day. (Pictured: LA Colors, Nars, Maybelline)

Blush and bronzers can make or break how my face wants to look that day.

Lipgloss: Lipgloss is something I like to put on, if I don’t feel like I want to wear too much color on the lips that day. It can be hydrating with some, when chapstick isn’t enough. I also top off lipstick, or use a gloss to bolden lipstick. It’s one of those things that just makes sense to have in a makeup collection. (Pictured: Smoke and Mirrors from FiveBelow, Revlon, Ulta Beauty, Almay, Elf, LA Beauty)

I love lip gloss. Especially, when they top a nice lipstick

To me, selfies are a way to show my mom my confidence boost for the day; she likes them. (Ps. I don’t touch up photos to make myself look better, but for the makeup to look better. Complexion varies for the different makeup colors.):

These are my makeup selfies I give to my mom. I also snuck one in there of my bird taking a selfie.
