I have been blogging for 4 months now. This may not seem like much, but there have been more than a few things that I have noticed throughout my blogging journey. The main thing that has been on my mind a lot, is the pressure to be able to keep up with the latest trends and beauty products.
I am constantly surrounded by luxury and beauty bloggers. These people always have the latest makeup and skincare products. As someone who has been saving money for the last month or so, I have not been splurging on things that I actually don’t need.
I feel like the blogging community is filled with materialistic things. Some of those things may have been gifted, which is not always mentioned, or have been heavily discounted. What I have come to realize is that while other bloggers are showing off their luxury bags and constantly have the newest makeup trends, I can’t keep up with that.
Not only can I not afford to keep up with buying all this makeup that I do not need, but at the same time I don’t think I want to. I will buy a product if I really want it, but I can’t spend hundreds of dollars every month on makeup that I will never actually use!
As much as I love makeup and trying out new products, this isn’t the reality. Material things are nice, but they aren’t the most important thing in the world. While there are many bloggers who can keep up with the latest trends, I will not be one of them. I respect what they do, and enjoy reading loads of their posts, but I have to stay true to myself.
I am going to continue writing about what I enjoy, and while I enjoy talking about makeup and skincare, I will only purchase new products once in a while.
I hope my little ramble made sense!
