New Fave Facial Cleanser!

         For the past few weeks I've been trying out a facial cleanser from one of my favorite skin care companies, FoxBrim. I've gotten to work with this brand on a couple of my YouTube videos before and have been impressed each time! This Coconut Milk & Honey Facial Cleanser is light and super refreshing. I usually like to take my makeup off with a makeup removing wipe then wash my face but I feel that I don't have to do that first step with this cleanser. It seems to take off everything easily  and quickly  - and I LOVE that. I've tried out other cleansers before that didn't seem to do the job as well. I would still find myself wiping makeup off or my skin just looked a little dull, which is the opposite look I'd like to have when washing and moisturizing my face. 

The bottle I have is 6 fl. oz and retails at $17.95 and I think I'll get use out of it for a while - you don't need very much and I use it with either my hands, a facial sponge or my Spin For Perfect Skin.
Try it out if you haven't already!

March Favorites 2016

Yesterday I made my March Favorites video live and realized there were just a couple products I forgot to mention. 😋🙈 These are some favorite products I've been using for a long time and I don't think I've ever even talked about them in any of my videos - this is why a blog is great lolz.
         I've been obsessing over skin care products - body scrubs and great shaving creams make me feel so spoiled! Months ago, I was working with the company, Svelta and was lucky to be sent this Luxe Coffee & Raw Sugar Body Scrub
It. Is. Beyond. AMAZING.


Spring Outfits

     It's been gloomy and rainy in Los Angeles lately - which I love but I wanted to brighten up my blog! This is one of the outfits I'm wearing in my Spring Lookbook video I'm uploading next week! See below for a link to the unlisted video!

I've been into simple, casual outfits and this sundress is the comfiest! Esp. with a cozy, oversized scarf for any 'almost warm' kind of weather.



      Lately, I've noticed the views on my recent videos are lower than the norm and quite frankly, that drives me insane. I believe it's due to working with too many brands at this point (which is great for me, but not so much for my viewers). As much as I try to incorporate the products I really do love into my videos, it seems to completely backfire when someone sees that it might be sponsored. 
       So, in my new video, I talk about my thoughts and feelings on sponsored videos - mine and other Youtubers. I also bring up what direction I want to take my channel and whether or not I will be working with so many brands in the future. 
       In my YouTube analytics, I noticed that the highest viewed videos on my channel are NOT sponsored. If you're a YouTuber and look at the top 10 videos in your analytics from the past 30 days, you know what your audience want to see more of.
That's when I realized my channel cannot grow if I keep working with brands. Which is unfortunate because that's how I pay my bills =( 
What are your thoughts on sponsored videos?

My Casual Monday #OOTD

      So this is actually a sneaky peak of one of my outfits for my Spring Lookbook I'm currently finishing up editing! Wanted to include some outfits that I typically wear while I'm working from home - getting dressed for the day but not really anything fancy, just some cute, comfy outfits! The video will be up soon and I'm excited to share it. 
I'm also making my London Vlog live later today as well! FINALLY!


Grunge Feels // Flannel & Leather

This was one of the outfits I wore in London recently. Since, I've been leaning towards an edgier look. Click here to check out my blog post on my favorite places in London I got to visit - this combination of distressed denim, leather and flannel makes me think of the Camden area that has an edgy, eclectic vibe.
