The Economics of Beauty Blogging

Now, they all say time is money, and in that sense all beauty bloggers have spent a LOT of money already. But of course MONEY is also money!

I find it kind of funny how I became a beauty blogger since I don't even buy much makeup. I'm still using the same make-up drawer I used when I began blogging. Which means my stash has neither risen or fallen in size - just shifted in its contents.

The reason I'm writing this is because (my exam is tomorrow and I'm procrastinating) I feel guilty for pretending that I am financially secure. That's what student loans will do to you - blissful years of money raining down on you, giving you a false sense of stability. In the next four years, my total loan amount will exceed $250,000, excluding interest.

Now, I can think on the flip side and say, "Oh well, spending $50 on a makeup item is nothing to compared to that! It's okay!" But comparing a deficit to a bigger deficit isn't a good way to go Joe!

Economics aside, I just don't have a chance to use as much makeup these days. I find a routine, and I stick with it. I think it's because medical school is so intellectually draining that I'd rather not spend time thinking about my face any more than I have to.  I still like the effect of makeup, but I'm in a no-lemmings phase right now. Boo. 

I'd rather be eating cake and watching a K-drama. Any K-drama fans in the house?! Don't worry ladies - I will try to find a way to keep up this blog-o-mine. Blogging is too awesome to give up, right?! 

Be back in 2011, with economically-sound content and crisp yummy photos!!!!!

    Yo yo yo! :) Haha...we're just happy you've decided to grace us with your online presence. $250K+ is definitely no walk in the park so I don't blame you. There are more important things (like school) to worry about.

    (Omg, I didn't even notice the 666 until you mentioned it! *gulps and prays* Maybe I should just follow myself…lol. XD

    Wow $250,000 in loans!!! That's a lot! I can't believe how expensive tuition is in the States! Good luck on your exams this month--the end is almost near, yay!!
    Yup I don't live any bloggers I think, but I think there are a lot less Canadian bloggers than there are US, and also the majority are in bigger cities like Toronto or Vancouver T_T
    Happy holidays!! <3
