I’ve decided to try and make a once-a-month post about things I’m loving that month. Here are the books, articles, website, products, food, and people I’m loving this month!
– I’m working my way through the Outlander series, which I’m rereading because it’s coming out as a show in August. I’m currently on the fifth book and I can’t say enough good things about the series.
– Teachers: I’m currently reading Reading Reasons: Motivational Mini-Lessons for Middle and High School by Kelly Gallagher, and you definitely need to check it out!
– They released a teaser trailer of the next Doctor Who series! It comes back on August 23 and I’m so ridiculously excited!
So I tried Maybelline’s “The Rocket Volume Express,” Covergirl’s “Bombshell Curvaceous by lashblast,” Mary Kay’s “Lash Love,” Smashbox’s “Full Exposure Mascara,” and Be a Bombshell Cosmetic’s “Last Out” (not pictured) mascaras. Without a doubt, the absolute best one was Maybelline’s! I have had people ask me if my lashes are real when I’m wearing it. If you are looking for volume and length, absolutely go with that one.
I started All Things Natalie Christa (ATNC) back in June of 2013 because I started reading other blogs and I saw how much they loved it. All these ideas began popping into my head of what I could write about and suddenly I realized how much I wanted to start a blog of my own. So, ATNC was born, and now a year later it has become not only my hobby, but also a full time job. People don’t realize all the work that goes into having a blog. A day doesn’t go by where I’m not writing new posts, responding to emails, replying to comments, or answering questions. It has been one heck of a roller coaster, with times where I’ve been in love with it and times where I’ve almost deleted the blog completely. But overall its been such a rewarding experience, that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. I’ve made friends who are literally on the other side of the world from me. I’ve learned about marketing and graphic design. Before I had a blog, I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career, or even what I wanted to study in college. After going through this whole experience, I’ve now decided that I want to major in marketing and get a minor in graphic design. I would of never decided those things or been exposed to either of those fields if I hadn’t started ATNC. This blog has opened so many new doors for me and I can’t wait to see where this blogging roller coaster takes me next.
