5 Freelance Jobs in demand now

I have been freelancing for almost 10 years and it is nice to see that the freelancing world is even busier now. Many people are choosing every day to become self-employed and with working from home being the new normal, there are more freelance jobs in demand now. What I love about being a freelancer is that I have the ability to plan my schedule. I have time to do what needs to be done at a time that is convenient for me. Although being a freelancer/self-employed person comes with loads of issues, it is very rewarding.

If you are playing with the idea of setting up your business or even testing the freelance waters on the side to see how it all goes, you have landed on the right blog! Here are 5 freelance jobs in demand right now:

Virtual Assistant

There are loads of Virtual Assistant (VA) jobs available online. You just need to search on the major job sites to find them. Virtual assistants are the new office managers and admin assistants. The role is so important as it allows business owners to pursue other aspects of their business, and leave the organising and managing to the VAs. If you have great organisational, time management, and IT skills, you may be able to start your freelance journey as a VA.

Writer

Freelance writers are always in demand and there are loads of freelance gigs available online. I have come across many and the rates are usually quite good depending on the niche and company. Medical/science writers tend to get a bit more than other niches but the experience itself is rewarding if you really like writing. Getting into the world of freelance as a writer is relatively easy if writing comes naturally to you. Having a blog helps as you can show prospective clients what you can bring to the table.

Proofreader

Do you have an excellent command of the English language, grammar, writing, and spelling style?  If you do, and you are detail-oriented with a good eye for spotting mistakes, you may be interested in pursuing a freelance career as a proofreader. The rates tend to vary depending on the niche and client, but there are loads of opportunities you could chase up online. There are also proofreading courses that could help you launch a freelance career, so have a good search online for one that catches your eye.

Social Media Manager

Being a freelance social media manager can be a lucrative gig with the right client. There are lots of opportunities online so the possibilities are endless. If you like the idea of managing a brand’s reputation online and if you have the skills required to grow an online presence, then you may want to look into being a social media manager.

Content Creator

And I saved the best for last with this job idea. Having your own blog allows you to create the content you want when you want. Clients do have input on what goes on sponsored content, but you have more room to make it yours since it is your platform. I have done all the jobs listed here (except one) and my favourite by a mile is this being a Content Creator. I love the flexibility and the fact that I have the final say on what goes on each content. It takes a while to earn regular income as a blogger, but once you have blogged for a few years, your income starts to build up.

Bringing the 90s Minimalist Fashion Trend into your Wardrobe

The 90s have always been a good place to look for fashion inspiration. I still remember vividly how stylish the fashion trends were for that decade, and it is great to see how inspiring the 90s minimalist fashion trend is today. When I think of how fashion and style were in that era, memories of minimal colours and tailored designs flood my mind. It was the era of casual chic pieces and accessories.

If you are on the hunt for some outfit inspiration and you are wondering how to add some 90s fashion vibe to your collection, you are reading the right fashion blog post.

Bringing the 90s Minimalist Fashion Trend into your Wardrobe

Here are some ways you could incorporate the 90s minimalist fashion trend into your wardrobe today –

Chunky Flat Boots

I was a huge fan of the chunky flat boots trend in the 90s and I remember having a couple in my shoe collection. It is such a stylish trend to add to your wardrobe and very easy to style up or down. I remember styling my flat boots jeans or long dresses with slits. Styling the boots with mini dresses or skirts paired with tights will also look very stylish.

The Tank Top and Straight-Leg Jeans

This is one of my favourite looks from the 90s. Recreating the 90s minimalist fashion look is super easy with a tank top and straight-leg jeans. This was my go-to look back in the day and you can still find me in similar outfits in the summer months. Now that the weather is getting colder, I will add a comfy cardigan to this look to keep me warm. I love having tank tops in a variety of colours because they are super comfy and easy to wear. Straight-leg jeans are always in vogue. A girl can never have too many of them.

A White Shirt and Cropped Leggings

A minimalist wardrobe is never complete without a few white shirts. Pairing a white shirt with cropped leggings and chunky mules will create a 90s fashion minimalist look effortlessly. I find this look really stylish and easy to wear. It definitely still inspires me today. For the chilly autumn months, I would swap the cropped leggings for a full-length, and the chunky mules for the flat boots.

Skincare tips from the world’s best facialists

Our skin is delicate and so it should be handled with care. The older we become, the more important it is for us to pay extra attention to our skincare routine and the products we use on a daily basis. Depending on many factors, it can be super easy to get our skin to glow and it can also be easy to let ourselves go and allow our skin to lose its shine. Taking good care of the skin is the goal for many which is why I love reading and writing about beauty and skincare tips.

Skincare tips from the world’s best facialists

If you are struggling to think of new ways to take care of your skin, here are some amazing skincare tips from the world’s best facialists:

Ada Ooi on facial massaging techniques

“One of the best skincare hacks that you can do easily from home is to use facial massaging technique to stimulate acupressure points for tension release and drain the lymphatic system to give a firmer, brighter complexion,” says Ada. “Start with your favourite serum to nourish and give slip, then using a Gua Sha tool gently massage the face, following the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and tighten your skin to give a more youthful appearance,”

I have heard a lot about this skincare hack and this is one I am definitely going to try soon. The technique sounds very relaxing and I bet it works great too! The Gua Sha tool is now on my beauty wishlist; it sounds fantastic. Have you used it?

Joanna Czech on a night-time skincare routine

Don’t skip your night time routine,” says Joanna. “Products are up to 60% more effective when our bodies are at rest, so take the time to cleanse your face and body thoroughly and apply your products before bed.”

I agree with Joanna completely. Night time is the best time to take care of your skin. I recently got a new facial moisturiser and I use it only at night time just so my skin can soak up all the goodies. It is such a lovely night time moisturiser and I will be reviewing it here on the blog soon.
