Favorite Beauty Essentials 2015

Recently I have really started to notice and work out what beauty products I use daily and really enjoy using. Since I was 9 I’ve been focused 100% on my skin and what to do to look after it and noticed I have a very unique range of skincare and my makeup is all very similar along with my hair care.

I do try to incorporate new products to try out and see if I like regularly but some products just don’t get old with me and I wanted to share them and send a message out explaining why these are my favorite beauty products that are essential.

Essential #1 

Now to some people deodorant for them might be an essential but not really too knowledgeable on the different types out their or might not even care. For others (such as me) I am very specific about my deodorant and for me it’s an absolute essential and so important because I have to admit one of my biggest fears is being smelly so making sure I’m protected from odor and from sweating I use Sure Maximum Protection. Now this product I first found out about back in I would like to say midway through last year and it’s been a holy grail. I do suffer due to problems with my hormones high sweat which is horrible and this has seriously helped so much and I just can’t go without it now. For the people in other countries who may not be able to get this product I have also tried 3 types of Secret Gel Deodorants which are just as amazing but obviously unavailable in the UK.

Essential #2 

I have been wearing foundation now for the past year and since last Christmas I used to apply my foundation, BB cream, etc using my fingers which isn’t the best way to do it and I really noticed my problem with my outcomes. At Christmas I asked as one of my presents for a beauty blender which I’ve got to admit is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made with makeup… EVER. I don’t physically know how I coped before not using this because it seriously is such an essential. It leaves a beautiful flawless yet natural look on the face and is the most easiest thing ever.

Essential #3 

One of the first ever makeup items I ever had was a lip balm set from this unknown brand and the image of these three beautiful lip balms still stick in my head. From such an early age I’ve been obsessed with lip balms which results in finding my favorite and trust me it’s taken years and years of lip balm trying to find it and as soon as I tried Dr. Lipp I fell in love. Basically this brand first did a nipple balm and it was for dry and cracked nipples or area of the skin that needed moisture and then recently the balm was tweaked a little and made into a beauty balm for lips mostly but can also work on nipples, elbows, brows and loads of other makeup uses aswell. It’s so so so moisturizing and leaves my lips with a lovely smooth feel and makes your lips look soft and healthy. It’s a little pricey though as it comes in for around £10 but I promise it’s really worth it.

Plans / Chit-Chat on Re-Decorating My Room

For a good couple of years now I have been in the process of planning my new room and it’s finally came to a point in time where it now needs to be done. I got my room last decorated back in I would like to say 2006 when I was 4 years old so I guess it’s about time now I’m 13 something gets sorted!

I am so indecisive on what inspiration/theme I want to go for in my room.. I’m loving the idea of a very vintage, bird cages, sleek, pink, coral or baby blue or even a grey stoney colored room but then I also like the idea of all fun colors with white walls and copper lamps and pintrest/tumbr themed room with Polaroid pictures everywhere and memories on every wall but they’re both so different but then both so me so I don’t want to mess it up but then I don’t want to regret anything so it’s a hard decision to make, I would say.

One of the hardest parts actually though once you’ve gone with your design/theme (which I have decided is going to be my first option a very vintage, pretty and sleek room) is choosing the right wallpaper. I have been searching now day and night for the past couple of months trying to find the right wallpaper! I have literally looked everywhere and nothing has really caught my eye and if it has It’s been on pintrest or somewhere where it doesn’t attach where you can get the frikin wallpaper from or it’s a different country so it costs a mortgage to ship over and if they don’t ship to the UK I’m screwed.

But once I’ve found my wallpaper it’s then time to get the matching paint for the other walls. I specifically want a misty white paint so it will match well with my furniture and a easy color to design with and match with anything.

Recently in my room I have had a new carpet and new windows and shutters so it just is the decorating left to do.

One of the things I’m most excited about though with my new room is that I am having half my room now sectioned off into….. A WALK IN CLOSET/WARDROBE. As you can probably guess I am extremely excited and happy about this as it is every girl’s dream and especially mine. It will have sliding mirrored doors and once you open them your in my closet. I’m going to have the famous ALEX Drawers to keep my makeup in and other bits such as clothes and underwear. Jean/Trouser hanger things that pull out.. it’s going to be amazing.

I am also doing a video to explain everything in full detail on my YouTube channel so when I upload that I will be sure to link that here;

Life Update & Plans for Future

Lately I have been extremely busy and all other things seem to be a lot more important then my blog or YouTube. Don’t get me wrong I’ve missed making videos, writing blog posts and sharing all my inner passions with people all around the world but I just needed my space to get things right and focus on the more important things such as my health, family and school.

But I am back, and have got so many ideas and such a big inspiration to produce good blog posts for you all and successful, YouTube videos! I have got a big plan for my next video and so many things to share with you all such as my big mexico trip this summer and my plans for the future which in this time off I have figured out.

In a nutshell, I have been quite ill and depressed recently so if you can probably imagine I didn’t have a urge to do anything, so trying to make videos and be positive was a big ask and actually extremely hard so I decided to give myself the break and come back when I am ready which seems to be now ( Sunday 27th September 2015 @ 8:07 pm).

But now I am back I’ve got so many ideas and secret upcoming videos I can’t wait for you all to see 🙂 So please bare with me while I get back into the swing of things, but all in all I am back and so happy and excited about the future…
