My Winter Makeup Routine 2018!

Hello everyone! It’s been a little bit. For so long now I’ve been wanting to get another video up on my YouTube channel. Making a video takes a lot more time than getting a blog post up, but I’m so excited I got another one done! I’ve specifically been wanting to create a makeup routine, and with the holidays coming up, it seemed like the perfect time to finally make it. Being in the middle of winter, I prefer not to wear too much heavy makeup. For example a full coverage foundation or tons of eyeshadow. I’ve also been having some difficulties with my skin again, so I’ve been trying to wear as minimal makeup as possible. In this video is a simple routine that is very easy to follow. I like my brows natural and my wings subtle. With that being said, here is the video!

With each new video I’ve made, editing has becoming an easier and quicker process. It’s been awesome to see my skills improve each time, so I really hope you guys have been enjoying! I believe that even with bad skin, you can still have fun with makeup and I hope that’s apparent in my video. While most of my issues deal with scarring which can easily be covered up by concealer, I’ve always enjoyed experimenting with makeup and finding new ways to get creative. Especially with Christmas coming up tomorrow and the new year just days away, it’s the perfect time to try something new. Let me know what you thought of the video below in the comments.

All About My Hair! (Products, Styling, & How I Keep It Long & Healthy)

Hey everyone! Hope you had a fantastic weekend. It’s Sunday and almost time to start a new work week. I know sometime it’s hard to face Monday, but I have a new video out that I think you guys will love! You all have been leaving me a lot of comments on Instagram about my hair, and I so appreciate it. I honestly don’t think too much about my hair but I figured since there were some questions about it, I would let you in on some tips and tricks. Check out the video below, drop a like (if you liked) and subscribe if this is the first you’re seeing of my videos!

In the video, I let you guys know what type of hair I have as well as what I ask for when I go into the salon. I’m pretty particular about the tone of my hair, as I always like it on the cooler side. I’ve also found a few holy grail products that I’ve been using for years, so I left a full list of the products I mentioned in the description of this video. So in case you want to try them out for yourselves, it’ll be easy to search! Let me know what you thought of this video down in the comments or if you have any other questions. I’ll be reading through and answering all of them! xx

3 Quick & Easy Breakfasts for College Students & Workaholics! (Video)

Good morning everyone! I finally have another video up on YouTube. It’s taken me so long to edit this one even though it’s only a few minutes long, LOL. Life just gets crazy, ya know?? Check out my three simple breakfast recipes for when you’re in a rush in the morning. Life can get so hectic at school or if you’re working, so these three simple meals will definitely get your morning going. It’s always a good idea to start your day with something healthy in order to have a productive afternoon so I hope you all find these recipes helpful!

Let me know down in the comments if you tried any of these or if you’ve had something similar! Honestly, I think the protein shake is my favorite, partly because it tastes like a chocolate shake and it’s VEGAN! I’ve only had vegan protein shakes and I love them so so much. I’m a sucker for sweets, even in the morning so it really curbs my sugar craving for the day. I always try to have it before or after I hit the gym as well to help out my muscles.

I also really love a rice cake with peanut butter and jelly. It’s a healthier alternative to a normal PB & J since you remove any carbs that come from bread. The egg dish is another recipe I normally have after the gym. Combined with spinach and salsa, it is extremely flavorful and packed with good things for your bod! Add half an avocado to this for some healthy fats and deliciousness!

Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel if you’re new and drop a like! I love finding new bloggers and YouTubers to connect with so don’t be shy! Talk to you all soon! xx

Where Have I Traveled Overseas? (My Favorite Place)

Hello friends! Hope you are all doing so well! To my own surprise, I have been very consistent with making YouTube videos lately. I’ve been having a ton of fun with them (including the editing process which has become much more exciting for me!) I love that you guys can see my actual personality and learn a little more about me!

For whatever reason, my travels have been on my mind recently. I have so many posts about various countries I’ve been to and lately all I’ve been wanting to do is travel. It actually is very therapeutic to make a video and talk out how I’m feeling, even when it comes to something so simple as my passions. I sincerely hope you guys enjoy watching and maybe learn a little more about the world!

If you’d like to see any extra photos about the places I discuss in this video, I will like them all below.  In the video I also tell you what my absolute favorite place in the world is! I’m so blessed to have been able to see so much of the world at my young age, but there’s always been one place that stands out. Drop a like (if you like) and subscribe to my channel to see more from me! I have a new video coming and I normally post on Fridays or Saturdays!

It Finally Happened: My “First” Youtube Video!

GUYS!! I did it! I’ve finally sat down and filmed a video for you. As I’ve mentioned previously, I made a handful of videos about three years ago when I was in college. They were very fun at the time but not really my type of content that I’d be watching now. So I’ve privated all those videos and I’m starting fresh! I’d love for video content to become a regular aspect of this blog, and it was actually extremely fun creating this video at such a different part of my life. So without further ado, here is my video all about why I started this blog and all the pros and cons to the blogging world!

I mentioned this in my previous blog post and a bit in the video, but I’m really focusing on making content that I would want to watch myself and creating things I genuinely love. Making this video took a few days between filming, editing, and my full time job. However, I think it’s one of my favorite things I’ve made simply because it wasn’t rushed whatsoever and I really took time with the details. Of course, nothing is perfect and I want to keep improving. For example, part of the video is a bit blurry because I’m still learning how to use my camera when it comes to recording.

Blogging has become such a big part of my life so I hope this video inspires you to create your own or get more involved in this lovely community! I also mention a couple reasons why being a blogger can be difficult. Even through that though, I wouldn’t want to give it up. Let me know what your thoughts are down in the comments! Also, please keep in mind that I’m not super great in front of a camera yet so don’t judge me too hard 😉 Talk to you all very soon! xx

My Thoughts on Future Content (Videos, Taking Questions, and a Poll!)

Hello my lovely readers! Hope you are all having a fabulous day (or night), whenever you happen to stumble upon this post. I just wanted to write this up super quickly and let you know where my head has been content wise! I have a couple of fun posts coming up, but as some of you may know, I’ve been wanting to add more video content for quite some time.

In the past, I’ve made some videos just for fun. However, I’d really love to start fresh and make some new and updated videos! I always really enjoyed filming and sharing my thoughts on products, fashion, etc. but I’d really love for them to become an extension/contribution to this blog. Something maybe I could do once a week possibly? Anyways, I’ve been bouncing a few ideas around in my head and wanted to get everyone’s opinion on what my first official video for this blog should be! I really want to make things that you all would enjoy, so please feel free to contribute your ideas! I’ve left a little poll down below of some ideas, but there is also an option to add an idea. Please feel free to write whatever you’d love to see from me!

Before when I’ve created videos, I didn’t really love the process of editing. I would complete it as quickly as possible and not take the time to perfect it (which is weird coming from a complete perfectionist). It simply wasn’t one of my passions. However, I’ve had Final Cut Pro for a while and would like to become a master at it, which simply comes with practice. With my Graphic Design background, I hope it can be a great asset to my videos and this blog in general. So this time around, I’ll give myself a few days to edit so I can release quality content for you guys.

This leads me to the questions portion. One of the options is a Q&A, which might be a great introduction of myself to new readers. So if you’d like to leave me any questions regarding college, post grad life, my major, Graphic Design altogether, fashion, beauty, California, honestly anything you’d like to know please leave it in the comments! I love interacting with you guys and I think in a video it would be a whole new experience for the both of us! As for hair care, I get a lot of comments on here and on Instagram regarding my hair, which I wasn’t expecting! If you have any questions about how I take care of it or how I style it, pop a questions below! A beauty routine, fashion lookbook, and chit chat GRWM is also something I’d be interested in filming.

Wow, this turned into a way longer post than I planned. My apologies for the rambling but I wanted you to know where my head was at. Please drop a vote down below and again, any questions you might have! Hoping to film the most voted video on my next day off from work!

Vlog 2: Sushi, Grocery Haul, and the Ghost Next Door

Hi loves! About a week ago I posted a day in my life vlog. There was no reason for it, but I’ve really been wanting to include more video content on my blog. I had a lot of fun making and editing it, and you guys loved it! Honestly I didn’t think there’d be requests for another one, but here it is!

In this vlog, I discuss my thoughts about going to the gym, grab some food with my roommate, and shop for groceries at Whole Foods. If you’re vegan, this is definitely the vlog for you. Most of the things I picked up at the store are vegan, so there’s plenty of great options for you! Not to mention, there may or may not be something mysterious going on next door to our apartment. I touch on my conspiracy theory a bit in this video!

Again, I’m sorry about the bad quality, I filmed this on my iPhone. I think it gets my points across though. Feel free to leave a like on my video, it’d be much appreciated. I don’t post consistently on YouTube, but once I graduate I’d love to start making videos more on the regular. So subscribe if you like! Alright, that’s it for me. I’m off to the gym and enjoy the vlog!
