Confessions of a Beauty Blogger | 100th Post

Tuesday, 28 June 2016


To celebrate my 100th post on What Sarah Writes I have decided to share a list of confessions or bad habits that I have which are either a result of blogging or kind of go against the whole purpose of beauty blogging.

1. I actually don't own a lot of makeup apart from lipsticks and eyeshadows

2. If I go to a makeup store I 'need' to swatch everything

3. Makeup is only a hobby to me so the little knowledge that I have comes from experimenting

4. Taking blog photos is my favourite part but the hardest task in getting a post published

5. I don't wash my makeup brushes as often as I should

6. To get a post done from start to finish it takes me around two hours minimum

7. I have never had my nails professionally done

8. I spend too much time planning and writing posts

9. Makeup is the only thing that I keep organized in my room

10. I rarely wear sunscreen or lotion

11. I can never get my photos to be as white and as bright as I want them to be

12. The oldest makeup item that I have is a light up High School Musical lipgloss. Don't worry, I don't wear it anymore!

13. I pick at my nail polish when I get nervous and I can go weeks with chipped polish

14. I keep makeup items way past their use by dates

15. I often stay up late at night writing posts and reading other blogs

What are some of your confessions?

Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Loved reading through this post! I definitely don't own a ridiculous amount of make-up either. I like to have just what I really need and then a semi-ridiculous collection of lipsticks and blush! Although I do love beauty, I much prefer to spend my money on fashion pieces! :) Great post, thanks for sharing xx

  2. I can relate to most of these hahaha. I definitely walk around with chipped nail polish until it literally all comes off and I hardly ever wash my makeup brushes. I'm also guilty of keeping makeup passed the "expiration date." Great post! XO -Kim

  3. Well done on your 100th post! I also don't wash my makeup brushes enough and am totally the same with only really having lots of lipsticks and eyeshadows - I don't buy loads of different foundations etc because I wouldn't use them up!

  6. Congrats on your 100th post babe! I loved reading all about your confessions too! I also take way too long planning a blog post and typically take at least 2 hours to complete one from start to finish. Blogging takes a lot of work and unless you're doing it, you really don't know the type of planning, preparation, dedication and time commitment it takes to be successful at it. I think you're doing a fabulous job! Keep it up and here's to the next 100 (raising cyber champagne flute to toast you)!

  7. Congrats on your 100th post Sarah, may there be many more! Loved reading this, it's beyond relatable, especially the owning not that much makeup other than lipsticks and eyeshadows, haha! Love reading posts like this.

    Lots of love,
