Although I am an avid beauty collector and beauty lover, I’ve been working really hard the past few years to work on the bad shopping habits.

The truth is that most of us blog as a hobby or a side hustle because we’re passionate about writing and want to share our experiences with the world – whether that passion is about books, beauty, or travel, etc. Given that most of us are blogging on the side, staying organized and planning posts ahead of time is essential to sustain success without burning out.
