Hey cutie! 你好小可爱！How are you? ♡ I have a lot on my mind recently that I want to write about but I’ll try my best not to ramble too much in this blog post (*ﾉ∀`*)
My energy levels have been absolutely shocking. The other weekend I went and spent some time with my bestie and I was pretty much dead for the rest of the weekend, doing nothing but sleep and watch tiktok videos on my phone. And then last weekend I went to get my nails done, and again I fell asleep just after dinner!!!! (I did wake up at one point though to talk to a few himekaji girls but that was it). What the hell is going on? Lockdown has really ruined my social batteries!
I talked to my bby Darla about this and we have concluded that it’s probably because I try to do everything in one day…. Putting makeup on, taking photos, recording YouTube videos as well as seeing friends – all in one day!
The reason why I do this is because I want to look perfect and create content in “perfect” conditions. So I would do overnight curls and make the most of the natural lighting.
But I’m going to try and break out of that perfectionism mindset. For example, I could start maybe filming YouTube videos in the evening and not worry that my hair isn’t perfectly curled and that it’s dark outside because I could just use my ring light. Then at least I can focus just on being with my friends on the weekend! Hopefully it works…
Another thing lockdown has ruined is the way I dress. I wore a lovely maxi dress last weekend and I just couldn’t wait to get into a hoodie and casual clothes when I got home. I just prefer comfy clothes now. So I need to put together some outfits that are cosy and cute haha. This is the outfit I changed into when I went to stock up on makeup supplies.
Talking about last weekend – I had to make do without wearing eyeliner because my eyeliner ran out while I was doing my makeup! It felt kind of weird not having it on my waterline, but I quite liked the look of it. Maybe I need to try it more often! I also ditched my NYX jumbo pencil and instead used a shimmery eyeshadow for my nose highlight because the NYX pencil was really drying for my skin.
I also recently bought some self tan from a brand called St Tropez and so far so good – I haven’t had any reactions and it gives me a lovely natural tan! I want to tan maybe every couple of weeks. Ideally I’d want to do it every weekend but I really need to be careful of my skin ( ╥ω╥ ) so I’ll just do it when I can!
Okay that’s all for today, sorry for such a long post! ( ╥ω╥ )

I can totally understand your mood 😅 I do the same thing and it’s actually draining… Your friend is right, probably you should try to split your schedule through the week as you can 🙂 I should try to do that too lmao
I also understand the need for cozy clothes xD but I really like the one you wore here! It’s really cute and the hoodie is adorable 😭💕💕 also the makeup is so pretty, I can’t notice you ran out of eyeliner!! I loved this post ❤️ I wish you a nice day!

I’ve only been doing this sort of thing when lockdown started and when I was addicted to tiktok; I would just dedicate a whole day to creating lots of tiktoks and nowadays it’s kind of influenced my thinking in that if I have makeup on, I need to do absolutely EVERYTHING so that it’s not a “waste”. But yes, I agree, spreading them out sounds so much better!
Yessss I really really like this outfit but I worry it’s not “gal” enough for the comm but hey, it was comfy, so oh well! And thank you so so much bby girl <3333

I feel you! I was happy to be able to work at home first thinking yeah! Nobody will annoy me with my style anymore! Actually nobody annoy me since I use to wear hoodie almost all the time and it’s worst again with lockdown! I don’t have the energy to do my nails makeup and hair done almost all the time so si don’t feel gal and I loose the envy to go to social médias … 😢😢 I hope the good weather and longer days will help us to dress up again make cute pictures (natural light is definitely the best agree!) again … ❤️ Take a break with perfection and just enjoy! ❤️✨

Oh no I really hope you get your energy back soon ;-; And yes, the thought of better weather should brighten our mood! Thanks bby girl <3333

I definitely understand, I’ve been trying to film a YouTube makeup tutorial and I’ve just been getting so burnt out because each time I attempt it I do my nails, tan, style my hair and do it all while there’s natural light >_> it’s been really burning me out and almost making me not wanna do YouTube LMAO idk how u do it!!_(:3」z)_
hellolizziebeeApril 27, 2021
Yeah it’s really tiring isn’t it ;_; I think we’ll just have to tell ourselves that tbh… gal isn’t about being perfect!!! And just do the best we can. Also, I would highly recommend investing in a ring light so that you can do videos in the evening if you need to <3333

I’m the same way love! I try and do everything in one day and by the end of it I’m so drained! NYX is my fav brand because it is so dang affordable and amazing! Hope your energy levels get a little better soon xx

Thanks for sharing what is your mind, I think your over whelming yourself with doing everything all at the same time, I do get this with managing all the social media I’m doing and my other issues, so take some time to relax 🙂
