Watch It Wednesday: Zoella


Where do I even begin? Let's take it back to the first time I ever heard of Zoe!
One day, during senior year of high school, me and my best friend were hanging out. I believe we somehow got onto the topic of beauty related things and my friend happened to mention that she saw this girl on YouTube talk about this one nail polish color in a video, which I believe was her February Favorites. Now at this point she was telling me that she's seen a few of her videos and that she's this thing called a YouTuber and regularly uploads videos. Then she's like oh yea she has another channel where she posts videos of her hanging out with her friends. And get this, they made videos too! 

Now I am one who can get obsessed with things pretty quickly. When my friend was telling me about her knowledge of the YouTube world, I was in awe. As soon as she left I decided I wanted to watch every single video from Zoe (which then began a habit when I watch a new YouTuber- I binge watch the videos oldest to newest). 

From watching Zoe, I soon learned of her friend group and fell in love with them, made my own fan account for them on twitter (which ended up being the twitter I only use now and obvo I changed the @ since then). Soon after I made the twitter, I decided I wanted to give blogging a go, and then a year later I loved the blogging and vlogging world still so much that I decided to give YouTube a go (cough cough Lexi's Guide cough cough). So yea, watching Zoe that one day has kinda completely changed my life for the better and I found a amazing new hobby!

Well what does she post about?? Originally she posted mainly beauty and fashion videos- filled with hauls, favorites, empties, look books, and tutorials. She would also post collaborations with her friends where they do silly challenges (my favorites are when she does the accent challenge with Marcus). She also daily vlogs once in a while and you get a glimpse of her life. She's always smiling and being silly and yet I completely trust her judgement and opinions on products. She's truly an inspiration and if you haven't seen her or know of her yet, go give her a watch!

Zoe's also has a lot going for her right now! She lives with her boyfriend and their dog Nala and her guinea pigs Percy and Pippin in Brighton, England. She is the author of 2 books: Girl Online, and Girl Online On Tour. AND she has her own beauty and bath range!

Monthly Empties | April 2018

This month I'm trying hard to just let things go, especially if I've had it for a long time. I feel like I went through a lot of skin care, which is typical, but I also feel like I went through my fair share of makeup bits as well! I always feel like I don't use things up, until it's the last week of the month and suddenly I'm running out of everything. Here's the things I've used up over the past month...

Lush Lip Scrub: I am not really a lip scrub person, only because I feel that lip balm is just fine. Plus, I'm super lazy/forgetful with extra steps, so I definitely neglected trying to use this lip scrub. Technically a lot is still there, but it's expired and solid as a rock at this point. I've never used a lip scrub before, but this was nice! It exfoliated and tasted great and that's all I really care about. I probably won't repurchase this as I won't use it enough in time.

#ProjectPan September 2017

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!

#ProjectPan October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…
