How I Use My Magical Monthly Reading Planner

How I Use My Magical Monthly Reading Planner

Hello and happy Wednesday. I am super excited to share this post with you because I love being able to help new book bloggers and reviewers whenever I can. Today I would like to tell you how I keep my blogging life organized by using the Magical Monthly Reading Planner I got in an Owlcrate a few months ago.

The first thing you’ll notice is that, yes, I put sticky tabs because I am constantly moving back and forth and writing stuff, and I need everything to be easily located.

 

 

Here we have where most of the magic happens: the monthly planner. I didn’t start using this on January 1st, so it actually begins way later. I also don’t use a specific set of pages for a month and then move to the next one, I prefer to continue on the same page because it gives me a clearer vision of my immediate blogging future.

Like I said once when I was talking about how I keep organized, I prefer a horizontal view rather than a vertical one, so monthly planners work better for me than weekly planners do. This notebook has both, but I’m not currently using the weekly planner pages. The way I plan is pretty straightforward: I write down the ideas for the day when I want to write the post and I highlight them when said post has been written. If for some reason I can’t write them that day, I’ll just scratch them off, and draw a cute little arrow or an asterisk. The horizontal disposition is also helpful for this because it helps things still look organized even after I’ve made alterations.

We then have a page which originally was titled New Releases This Month, but I couldn’t care any less about that, so instead it’s my physical TBR list. I have a column for books in English and one for books in Spanish, and the reason why I have it is that when I go on trips I prefer to take a physical book and this is a practical way to find one to take with me.

 

 

 

 

 

Because my reading paces vary so much depending on my mood and my job situation, I don’t really need a Monthly TBR list, so instead I have this chart so that I can expand on post ideas. Basically, I write the post title and then I jot down key points so that I know where I wanted to go when I originally came up with the post. This is especially helpful for content that is very long or specific, or that I feel that I can easily lose the focus of if I don’t have a guideline.

Finally, we have the Book Review Section. Again, I keep one page for books in Spanish, and the other one for books in English. Personally, this format has helped me organize my thoughts when I’m writing reviews. It’s way more concise than what I was used to, and so far I’m very happy with it.

Whether you have a planner like this one or not, the contents of it can be useful for you, especially if you’re getting started as a book blogger or reviewer. To me, it’s been key to have everything in one place, sitting on my desk so that all I have to do is consult it whenever I need it. If you’re a blogger as well, I would love to know about your tips and tricks to be organized. Tell me about them in the comments below.

Happy reading!

Sunset Eyes Makeup

Sunset Eyes Makeup

Hello and happy Monday. What I call the sunset eye makeup is probably the best way for you to practice the ombré technique.

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Matte brown (crease)
  7. Orange (eyelid)
  8. Yellow (inner corner)
  9. Dark brown (outer corner)
  10. Brown eyeliner (tightline)
  11. Mascara

Subtle Green Halo Eye

Subtle Green Halo Eye

Hello and happy Monday. I’m sorry for those of you who are new and think that I’ll indeed be subtle when in reality I’m sharing a look featuring neon orange and green eyeshadow. When I say “subtle” I mean “subtle for me,” as in it’s not a smokey eye or I’m not wearing hot pink lipstick. Anyway, I feel that these neon shades weren’t really flashy because they were more on the neon-pastel side. Here’s how I achieved this look:

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Matte brown (crease)
  2. Neon orange (inner and outer corner of the eye)
  3. Neon green (center of the lid)
  4. Green eyeliner (waterline)
  5. Mascara
  6. Primer
  7. Foundation
  8. Concealer
  9. Powder
  10. Eyebrows
  11. Contour
  12. Blush
  13. Highlighter
  14. Nude lipstick
  15. Dewy setting spray

What comes to mind when you think of a subtle makeup look? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Ghost Lollipops

Ghost Lollipops

PinkQueen

Hello and happy Saturday. Yes, this is another Halloween post, and yes, it’s about stuff I give my students, more specifically candy. No, I’m not talking about kindergarten students. I made these ghost lollipops for my high school students and they loved them.

This is very simple, so we’ll make it short and sweet. I used lollipops, the cheap ones because I had over a hundred students and wasn’t going to splurge. To make the actual ghost I used white crepe paper, which I like better than silk paper because it is thicker. I used orange yarn to tie the ghost up (yes, I know how that sounded), and a black Sharpie for the faces.

It’s a very quick and simple thing to do that students will appreciate. Because the lollipops had like that swirly tip on the top, I used some tape to make them as round as possible.

Another consideration I’d have is when doing the wrapping because even if this paper is thicker, it can tear and you wouldn’t want that.

Do you give candy to your students in Halloween or do a special activity on this date? Let me know in the comments.

Happy teaching!

Love, Miss Camila

How to Rock White Eyeshadow

How to Rock White Eyeshadow

Hello and happy Monday. There are some shades we just never use on our eyelids, or better yet, we are so stuck on the same colors that we don’t venture and try others. As much as I like playing with colors, I usually stay within the realm of the browns, the golds, and the occasional pink, which is cute, but safe. Today I want to show you how to step out of that comfort zone with a shade you’ve probably never considered: white. These are the steps I followed to achieve this look: 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Powder
  5. Lip balm
  6. Contour
  7. Blush
  8. Eyebrows
  9. Matte brown (crease)
  10. White eyeshadow (lid)
  11. Black eyeliner (tightline)
  12. Mascara
  13. Lipliner
  14. Matte lipstick

What is a shade you’ve never worn on your eyelids but you’d like to give a try to? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!
