Meet The Maker: Eugenia Lung of geniabeme
If there is one thing we have learned from the ScrapBox community, it is that creativity comes in many different forms. We are so excited to introduce Eugenia, a fun-loving beauty blogger who uses the WorkBox to organize all of her beauty products!
Tell us more about geniabeme! When did it all start and why?
I started my blog in 2009 while I was working my first 9-5 job as a personal assistant. I had a lot of down time and I was always shopping so I decided to start writing reviews on different beauty items I would use. I really didn’t think anyone would read my reviews, I just did it for fun. I started getting emails asking for opinions and more product reviews so I started to do more!
Tell us about the behind the scenes. What does a typical day look like for you?
I do anti-money laundering consulting for various banks. I work remotely at home and I can set my own hours so I like to get my work done earlier. I usually start working my day job at 7am. During my lunch break I will do my makeup and test out new products. At this time I’ll also take some pictures and spend some time looking through Instagram (my favorite social media platform!).
After I do all of that and try to convince my boyfriend to meet me somewhere for lunch, I finish my work for my day job. After that I usually make dinner for the family (my boyfriend’s 3 kids live with us full time). After dinner my boyfriend will clean up and I will get some blogging time in. At 8pm I then go to the gym or my boyfriend and I will spend some quality time that doesn’t involve the internet! We usually play a table top game or watch a movie!
What are some of your other hobbies or interests?
I love makeup BUT I LOVE FOOD. I also run an Instagram just for my food adventure (@geniabemefood)! I also love to sew! I am thinking about getting another ScrapBox to keep all my sewing items! I also sometimes like to go scuba diving when the boyfriend goes.
How long have you had the WorkBox? What was the initial appeal for you?
I think I’ve had mine for about 5 months now. I just loved how the storage space went vertical so I could put more stuff in it without wasting space. I also liked the idea that I could close the whole thing if I ever needed more room. Realistically though, I NEVER close it, I don’t have a need to and I like the way it looks open!
How did you store all of your beauty products before the WorkBox?
Um… they were everywhere. They were on a table, in drawers, on the floor, on my work desk, on the kitchen counter, EVERYWHERE!
What is your favorite thing about the WorkBox?
I like how everything is open and see-through. When I had things in drawers before, I didn’t see them so I forgot about a lot of them!
Did you ever picture yourself doing what you are doing now? What would you say is the best part about what you do?
I never wanted to blog full time. I love doing different things. I like having a day job and then having an outlet where I do make some extra cash while I can be a little creative too! The best part about blogging for me is meeting new people! I have met some of my closest friends through blogging!
