Vlog: Get Ready With Me (Skincare & Makeup Routine) + Updates!

Good Morning!

Today I have a very fun video out on my channel; it is my “Get Ready With Me” Skincare and Makeup extended routine simplified for YOU!

I am SO happy with how this video turned out. I felt completely in my zone while I was shooting this (even though we did have a few battery and SD card hiccups throughout the process).

A little blog exclusive behind-the-scenes for you is that I took all the LED bulbs out from around my house and traded them with the icky, warm-yellow lights that were in our bathroom to make the lighting POP! This was the first time I had done a makeup tutorial on my channel and I can promise you it won’t be the last time, either.


1. I am officially partnered with Juicee on their route to becoming your go-to beauty app for direct services delivered right to your home.

I’m a brand ambassador for all things on their cosmetics end and I am so excited to work with them! Juicee takes the guesswork out of bad nail jobs, botched hair cuts and sub-par synthetic and human-hair wigs. With their group of certified, talented cosmetologists, Juicee prides themselves on their unparalleled convenience and reliability.

If you are Atlanta, Georgia based, you can begin ordering services beginning this month (March 19th to be exact!) Use my affiliate code “ALLIETAYLOR10” for 10% off of your order of custom wigs or cosmetics in their shop! I am waiting on a box of goodies I ordered, so make sure to keep a look out for a Juicee cosmetics review on the channel soon.

You can find more affiliated brand partners by scrolling down to the footer of the page under “-Affiliated Brands-“!

2. I got my first ever Morphe palettes in the mail a few days ago!

I’m currently waiting on some brushes I got after I purchased the palettes, but I will be doing a fun color-play video to really showcase the pigments and give you my true first impression of this brand! I decided to purchase the James Charles approved 35B palette and the warm-tone 35K palette. I swatched the bright blue on the 35B and I was severely shook! It was like drawing on my skin with a silky marker. Amazed.

If you didn’t know, Morphe teamed up with Bretman Rock for his MorphexBretman Highlighting Palette dropping March 13th! The colors look absolutely DREAMY and have the sassiest names (my personal favorite is the shimmery champagne highlighter “VAYGAYTION”) It’s nearly a steal at $29 and the formula’s are supposed to be super creamy. Count me in.


Thank you guys so much for this milestone. I am so beyond thankful for this opportunity to start doing this more than part-time and it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I’ve wanted to create content like the YouTubers I’ve watched since I was 13 for a LONG time now, and you’re making it happen. THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU!

With that said, my biggest goal is 650 subscribers on YouTube (that’s enough to change my URL to my brand name!) and I would love to do a GIVEAWAY when we reach that amount. I’m asking a HUGE favor from you; if you have makeup-savvy friends, friends that like funny, conversational videos, friends that love to procrastinate studying by watching hours of YouTube… please go have them SUBSCRIBE to my channel! It would help us reach out goal so much faster if everyone had five friends sub. Just five! I can think of five friends off the top of my head (but they’re already subscribed to my channel haha)

Phew – Updates are over for today! I’ve finally had time to put together a content calendar for y’all and I think you’ll like this layout:

Monday & Wednesday: Updating the Blog

Tuesday & Thursday: Filming Videos for Wednesday and Friday

Saturday/Sunday: Instagram Live (Spicy Sat. or Soul Sun.)

Let me know what you think about this format and if you have any comments or ideas to share, I love hearing from you!

Spring Break 2017 – Travel Diary

IMG_0288Today marks day four five (by the time I finally post this) of my Spring Break adventures in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Yes, yet again I am spending another break in The Fort and this time around I helped Jacob clean out his years worth of engineering papers. It was a blast, let me tell you.

While the boyfriend was in class from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, my butt sat at home redoing the layout of the blog and binging on a fruit bowl I bought at Publix. Lately, my medicine has been making me less and less hungry throughout the day. However, I now savor any appetite I do have and indulge in a full plate when I have the chance.

After Jacob’s class, we sat around for a while before going out for dinner. During those two-to-three hours, I threw a full blown temper tantrum because someone wouldn’t go to the P.O.D. Market and get me a bag white cheddar Smartpop popcorn.

Mature, I know.

We had my favorite SoCal Mexican for dinner — Oscar’s Taco Shop. I switched it up from my usual fish tacos and tried their steak fajitas. Aside from their guac that I’m not super crazy about, everything else was absolutely delicious. It’s fresh made, to order and reasonably priced for a quick dine-in meal.

We popped over to Insomnia Cookies for a sweet treat that I had been craving since the last time I was in Knoxville last spring. I’ll admit, I went a little sugar crazy and got the “Sugar Rush” box of 12 assorted cookies. I picked three of each — peanut butter, chocolate chunk, M&M and sugar. Once home, I instantly dove straight into the box for pictures of the beauties. Can you blame me?

My personal favorite was the peanut butter, but I’m also the type of person who gets sick from eating warm chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven. Jacob capped his sugar quota after one cookie. Like I said, the “Sugar Rush” was probably overshooting it by like six cookies (as Jacob had suggested in the first place).

Tomorrow, I’m planning to have said boyfriend bring me to Downtown, where I can go get some cold-pressed juices from a local juicery. Pictures and the like on those later.

For now, it’s time for sleep. Well, for me at least. Jacob is still doing finite element analysis homework.

Yours truly,
