How to Stay Motivated to Blog

Heyy,

So… motivation is such a tough thing and it comes and it goes in waves for me which is the most annoying thing because I am so happy when I feel productive and motivated and then when I don’t I am sluggish and bored. For me motivation is still something I struggle with but there are some tips that I have found work for me when I am in desperate need of motivation.

  1. Remember why you started: This one is such an important one because I had my first blog and ended up deleting it (you can find out all about that on my first blog I posted here) but then soon had the urge and desire to keep writing because it made me happy and made me forget about what was going on in my life for a short period of time.
  2. Visualise the results: I love this tip because it helped me. I am someone who loves to share my thoughts, feelings and opinions with people so when people weren’t reading my blog I felt deflated but I realised that it takes time and i visualised myself with more people reading my blog and it got me motivated to keep writing.
  3. Get Organised: I think this will work for certain people by maybe not all. If you have a schedule and a plan it can really motivate you to be posting blogs when your schedule says.

There are three tips that help me when I am unmotivated and I hope it could help you. Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed and I know it was a shorter blog but don’t worry I have longer ones coming soon

Love xoxo,

Acne! What To Do and How To Cover It

Hello,

I am back with another blog and this blog post is very close to me because I have struggled with acne since I was 12. I had just started a new school and my hormones decided ‘you know what you need is some spots which will just help with your confidence’ well little insight they didn’t but you probably guessed that. After 4 years of struggling with a lot of acne that never seemed to go away I have finally been able to contain it for the most part except for my period but you win some you lose some.

There is nothing to be ashamed of if you have acne and I am not by any means saying that you need to cover it if you have it but I am simply giving tips if you wanted to. The first thing is how to get rid of it because that’s what I always wanted to know.

  • Wash your face with a gentle cleanser every day twice a day

This is super important because your skin needs to be cleaned of the day to day gunk that gets on it. A gentle cleanser is better because acne is sensitive and can react to harsh chemicals making it worse. You may be able to get away with only washing your face one a day depending on the severity of your acne but if you wear makeup I highly recommend twice a day.

  • Drink a lot of water and eat cleanly

There is a lot of things I can suggest to you but this one is the one suggestion/tip that I know will work for everyone. Water cleans your skin from the inside and keeps it hydrated. Eating clean does the same, all of the salt and sugar isn’t good for your skin and believe me I learnt that the hard way. This can be a gradual change of introducing more clean food and drinking more water into your everyday instead of quitting eating junk cold turkey because we all know how hard that is.

  • Gentle exfoliator and moisturiser

This is my final tip for cleaning up acne and it could be the most effective in a short time span. Using a gentle exfoliator cleans the skin deeper than a cleanser and gets off any roughness on your face. Moisturiser is one of the most important parts in any skin care routine because your skin loves hydration and will thank you for it. Moisturiser allows you skin to soak in vital ingredients to clean your face. Apply moisturiser generously before sleeping.

Now that we have established a few tips of getting rid of acne the next thing is how to cover it.

  • Concealer

Concealer is a much more natural way of covering acne than foundation and can make it seem like you aren’t wearing makeup which is something foundation cant do.

  • Light coverage foundation

If you want to use a foundation use a light coverage foundation because the chemicals and ingredients in that will be less harsh than those of a medium-high coverage foundation.

Okay so I have given some products to cover acne but the important things is to wash that makeup off thoroughly and not let it sit on your acne for very long because that can make it worse

So that brings me to the end of this blog. I hoped this helped or was enjoyable to read! I will be posting again soon.

Love xoxo,

Emily Jazz

Online School… Was it a major mistake?!

Hello!!

This year has been such a crazy year for me because I have moved to online school umm… well that’s about all that has changed I wish more had changed but I couldn’t stick to my new year resolution for more than 2 days. In this blog I am going to be writing about online school and why I changed because it isn’t something you hear about every day and I thought some of you may be interested.

I moved to online school after being bullied relentlessly at my old school by two specific people. I am going to be a whole separate blog post about that situation but that is the main reason I left. Also, school gave me a lot of anxiety and I never have been able to figure out exactly why because I had felt like this for years and towards the end of it I was taking more days off than I actually was at school so my mum and I wanted to start doing some research on whether I should leave and if I was to what would I do.

I definitely contemplated dropping out of school altogether but after a while I decided against that as I would be going into grade 11 and only having two years left of school. Another reason for not dropping out is that I wanted the option of going to university just in case I wanted to go. I never thought moving to another ‘typical’ school was a good idea for me because I didn’t want the same stuff that happened at the first school to happen at the new school.

After much research we have an online school which sounded great, so I decided to enrol, and I am not normally someone to just take a risk and do something like that but I knew that I didn’t want to go through another two years at my old school. Moving to online school was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made because I have grown as a person and matured as well as actually listening in classes making my grades go up.

If you are thinking of online school, I would definitely encourage it because though it will be hard at first to have the motivation after a little while you will get into a groove of things just like being at a normal school.

I am going to finish talking about online school here for today, but I will be doing other blog posts in the future regarding it and if you have any suggestions for future blog posts whether it being about online school or not please let me know in the comments.

Love xoxo,

Emily Jazz

Where have I been?

Hi!

I am so excited to be blogging once again. If you are new to this blog, then you probably don’t know why this is titles ‘where have i been’ but I used to have a blog called Emilyknowsmakeup and I deleted all the blogs off it and basically fell of the radar completely so sorry about that everyone who enjoyed reading my blogs.

I have been thinking about when I would be coming back and today is the day but before I get into what this blog will be about (because there is going to be a change from my last blog) I wanted to talk about why I left and how I am feeling now. I loved blogging so much it was an escape for me, and I could totally and utterly be me but going to the school I was going to meant that doing what I loved was something that people bullied me for…

I was bullied a lot and I never really told anyone because I was so embarrassed but after leaving that school because it was absolutely toxic, I am feeling much more confident and happier. If you are being bullied for blogging, doing YouTube or anything that you love doing just remember they are probably jealous that you have the guts to put yourself onto the internet and be who you truly are.

I believe that to beat the bullies you have to fight their mean with kindness now this may not make sense but hear me out. Bullies want the attention, they want the reaction from you so by being mean back to them they are going to keep on bulling you but if you are nice to them and just try and let it roll of your back, hopefully they will leave you alone. I tried this and it worked for me and many of my other friends going through a similar situation to me tried it and it worked which is why I wanted to share it with all of you.

If you are ever being bullied, please talk to someone because that is the biggest mistake that I made was keeping it all bottled up inside me. You may not feel comfortable with talking about with family or friends and if that’s so my Instagram Dm’s are always open to have a chat.

I am so happy to be back, and I will be back for good this time. I am changing up my blog a little bit this time around instead of only focusing on makeup I am also going to be introducing fashion, weight loss, issues I am facing and maybe you are facing also and much more. I am very excited for this next chapter and I hope you come along for the journey.

Love xoxo,

Emily Jazz
