Steps Involved In Essay Writing Process

Friday, November 17, 2017

Each writer is a creative personality that follows own approach to the composure of articles and essays. On this account, it is impossible to predefine a certain template of writing a custom essay. Nonetheless, it is quite true that particular steps or stages are inherent to the mentioned activity. In the following article, we will identify essential points of essay creating and their sequence.

Three Major Stages

An accumulation of words arranged in sentences can be called a text. However, if your goal is to produce a qualitative and comprehensive work, the approach to the activity should be more profound. One way or another, a decent writer undergoes three stages of its creative labor.

Preparatory Stage

Step 1

One cannot just produce a sequence of phrases or sentences without some definite order or purpose. The writer needs to understand what to write about. Thus, it faces the first step namely choosing a subject. The subject is a kind of foundation or basis for the subsequent work. All the following actions will be performed in accordance with this key step.

Step 2

When you know the topic of the future text, you need to accumulate some related information or ideas. Even if you are an experienced specialist in the described topic, using additional sources will always be of service.

Step 3

As soon as the data and ideas are collected, they need to be arranged properly to form a body text. So, a structure is needed. The structure acts as a plan for organizing the collected data. Some writers prefer to skip this step and head to the principal stage. Nevertheless, the unstructured text can result in a clumsy and cramp essay.

Principal Stage – Step 4

The principal stage is represented with a single step. Activities performed on this stage can be characterized with one word – writing. Until this moment, the writer accomplished versatile preparatory activities that are ready to outpour in textual form. Each structural unit of the essay is gradually filled. Ideas are converted into phrases and sentences. A pile of words assumes a shape of a readable text. One can suppose that this step is the final one since the essay is written hence the work is accomplished. However, a halfway is done only.

Final Stage

Step 5

This step is essential to prevent and avoid such questions as “What a nonsense did I write?” Believe it or not, some ideas accumulated at the preparatory steps can be a bit untoward to the general subject. And such inconsistency can be revealed just upon reviewing the ready text. Some writers practice to read the end product aloud or even to a listener. An outside perspective can be rather helpful. During this stage, you have an opportunity to exclude some inappropriate or unnecessary information, replace it with a more relevant one or add absolutely new data. Besides, the essay structure can also be altered upon the reviewing step.

Step 6

We decided to split the final stage into two steps. Meanwhile, other opinions offer to agglomerate them since they tightly correlate. Anyway, the 6th step aims at revising the final text and eliminating miscellaneous defects like misprints, grammar and punctuation errors and other flaws that deteriorate the content. After these final corrections, your work is considered accomplished.

Tarte Cosmetics Double Duty Beauties Discovery Set Review and Swatches

Thursday, November 9, 2017

I'm excited to talk to you today about the Tarte Double Duty Beauties Discovery Set ($36) I purchased at ULTA. You can purchase all of these items individually, but they would add up to $101. HaHaHa So it's safe to say, this is an excellent deal. I reviewed Tarte's Peachy Glow Blush & Glow Palette. I really liked it and wanted to try another shade. Well this set gives you Pink Champagne Glow! What I like about it, is it's a grown up pink! It's very pigmented. A little goes a very long way and it agrees with my complexion. When I first started blogging, I picked all the wrong pinks and ended up throwing a lot away. So on one side is the blush and the other side is a champagne shade highlighter. It's really pretty. I really like these Tarte blush/highlighter duos. I may get more. There seems to be a Rose Gold and also Coral option. I've always been a fan of Tarte blushes. Let me tell you what SURPRISED ME! Their Maneater Mascara! Anyone ready to sing Maneater by Darryl Hall & John Oates LOL. I always dismissed it because of its kitschy name & packaging. But this mascara is absolutely amazing! It separates your lashes. Coats them in black. Your lashes still bend after applying it. No sticking of lashes together or clumping. Do you see my lashes? UD Perversion was my go to mascara but I think I'll be switching to this one. LOL I am that impressed! Next is the Tarte Lip Architect. It's a double ended lip liner and lipstick. In this set they give you Delightful! It must be an exclusive color, because I don't see where you can buy it individually, but there are other similar shades. It's creamy. It stays put. It doesn't crack or feel dry. I love it. The last product in this set is Tarte's new perfume: Sweet Tarte Fragrance Rollerball. The notes are as follows: Top: orange, mandarin, passion fruit & berry Heart: passion fruit, lychee, gardenia & vanilla Base: vanilla, cedarwood, sandalwood & musk. This was the only product I wasn't crazy about in the set. It's not bad, but it's just blah! I can't even describe it. It's just a super soft perfume that dissipates quickly. LOL But I still give this set a Supersweet rating.

Pixi Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balms & Matte Lustre Lipsticks Review and Swatches

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Sponsored: I was sent several Pixi Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balms and MatteLustre Lipsticks to review. Let's start with the lip balms! They contain shea butter (nourish), vitamin E (protect) and have excellent pigmentation. They're just the right consistency. Not overly moisturizing. Not dry, that they drag. It's just a matter of picking the right shade for you. I thought Natural Rose was too light for my skintone, but I loved Sweet Peach and Ripe Raspberry. I thought Ripe Raspberry would be way too loud for me, but it actually looks nice on. I tried one Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Classic Red last year and loved it. I'm so happy Pixi sent me more to try. Well, I loved all three shades: Rose Naturelle, Peach Blossom and MY FAVORITE is Bitten Rose. Very pretty colors. These lipsticks are full coverage DEMI MATTE! Because I'm not a fan of matte lipsticks. They have added peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamins C & E. They feel moisturizing to my lips. The color payoff is excellent. They're just really good.

Lalicious Birthday Cake Whipped Sugar Scrub and Sugar Coconut Hydrating Body Butter Review

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Sponsored: I was sent Lalicious' Birthday Cake Extraordinary Whipped Sugar Scrub and Sugar Coconut Hydrating Body Butter to review. Birthday Cake was just released this year! I was actually going to buy it for my birthday (loved the name & beautiful packaging), but hey...everyday is an unbirthday (Alice In Wonderland) in my book ;) The scrub comes in super cute packaging! It's a nice size plastic jar, with pastel dots sprinkled on it. Does it smell like birthday cake? Not to my nose. The scent is very nice, but to me it smells more like pink bubblegum or cotton candy (candy floss for my European readers). I expected it to have more of a cake & frosting scent. So that kind of threw me. You guys may remember my review of Lalicious Sugar Coconut Sugar Scrub (please see it for pictures). Well Birthday Cake performs the same way. Great scrub, but it's too heavy/oily for me. I have super dry skin, but their scrubs just leave a layer of heaviness on my skin that doesn't wash away; you can see the water beading off your skin. It moisturizes, but it doesn't wash away cleanly. They also sent me their Sugar Coconut Body Butter. Their body butter formula is really good! It's creamy. It's moisturizing. Not heavy. I love the scent of their Sugar Kiss Hydrating Body Butter! The scent for the Sugar Coconut Body Butter starts off great, but then turns artificial. I didn't detect this when I reviewed the Sugar Coconut Sugar Scrub (link above). I thought the scent was very authentic! But then again, it's a scrub. So it doesn't hang around on the skin very long. So this body butter FEELS GOOD, but just doesn't have an AUTHENTIC coconut scent. I can vouch for the Sugar Kiss scent and would recommend it! Lalicious is doing a WEEK OF DEALS this week (November 6-10, 2017)! So be sure to check their products out.

Storybook Cosmetics X Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Storybook Palette Review and Swatches

Monday, November 6, 2017

I've Got A Golden Ticket.... TO COURT!!! LMAO Yes, yours truly has been selected for Jury Duty. Oh Joy! I received the notice right before Halloween...Trick or Treat! Wish me luck these next two weeks. But anyway, today I'm reviewing Storybook Cosmetics' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory eye shadow palette $55 (yes, they did receive permission to use the original artwork). Have you heard of Storybook Cosmetics? I just learned about them this year! As their name suggests (3 sisters), they do movie themed eye shadow palette books & makeup brushes. Their current one is Mean Girls! My eyes lit up when I heard they were going to do Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I purchased this strictly for the packaging. I didn't care if any of the eye shadows worked or not (well maybe a little). So how do they perform? You're given 12 eye shadows. About 3 were duds... milk duds ;) The others had nice pigmentation. I used Smashbox primer on the back of my hand to swatch these (as I always do). There was a lot of "kick-up" when I dipped my makeup brush into this palette. The hits are Golden Ticket (Rihanna Fenty Gold), Wonka Bar (true candy bar milk chocolate brown), Fizzy Lifting Drink (great sprinkle of gold for the inner eye) and Violet Beauregarde (gorgeous purple). They applied ok. You really have to blend. The color scheme holds pretty true to the movie. I don't quite understand the Mike Teavee color (maybe it's the handkerchief around his neck). If you're a fan of the movie, get it. If not, pass. The packaging is SUPERSWEET! It's that beautiful. The pictures of candy bars inside the palette are a gorgeous touch, great mirror and I love the saying Tremendous Things Are In Store For You. Plus, you get a Golden Ticket! The eye shadows...meh. You're paying for the packaging. I think for many, the color scheme may be hard to work with (especially for novices like me). However, this is one of my FAVORITE movies! I watched it and the movie Oliver continuously. Always hated the boat scene, but the candy shop candy-man-can, willy wonka factory, veruca salt bad egg and violet beauregarde blowing up like a blueberry scenes are my favorites. RIP Gene Wilder. He will always be Willy Wonka.
