My YouTube Journey

Hello Gorgeous! I hope that you had a fantastic weekend! Today I have some awesome news to share with you!

If you have been following my blog for a while now, then you would know that I have been talking about wanting to start a YouTube channel. I have been wanted to start a channel of my own for about four years now. I just never had the courage to just do it. I have always admired those that could put theirselves out there and be so confident!

Well about a week ago, I filmed my first video! I was a little nervous, but I filmed, edited, and uploaded. 

My first video!
Now it is Sunday, and I have uploaded another video and already have 11 subscribers. I can’t believe how fast 11 subscribers came! Nothing but nice comments from nice people. I wish that I would have started back then, I could have been so far by now, but that’s ok. I am starting now and that’s all that matters. Some people may laugh, some may think that it’s dumb, but I am not creating videos for them. I am doing this for myself. It’s time to make myself happy and do what I want. YouTube will not be my number one priority, but it will be something that I am going to work at. If I make it to 100 subscriber or if don’t get any more than 11 subscribers, that is perfectly fine with me. This is going to be a fun, new hobby!

My second video!
If you have a YouTube channel, leave your name in the comments and I will make sure and check it out! The blogging community is a lot like the YouTube community. We all are doing something that we love, and are trying to make some friends along the way. We need to stick together!

For those of you that have been wanting to start; a YouTube channel, blog, Instagram, or whatever it may be, my advise to you is to do it. Don’t constantly worry about what people are thinking, or if someone will judge you. Trust me, there is going to be people that are not going to understand what you are doing, or even why. To be honest, their opinion really doesn’t matter. What matters is your happiness! If you need a little encouragement, just shoot me a message and I will be right there to cheer you on!

THE DISNEY TAG

Oh my goodness! I can’t tell you how excited I was when I found this tag! This is so perfect and so fitting for me. For those of you that don’t know, I am a huge Disney fan. I love all things Disney, I take all of the Disney quizzes on Facebook, the whole shebang! My mind is still blown that I came across this tag on twitter! I love it!

FAVORITE CHARACTER: Dory from Finding Nemo. Who doesn’t love her. Did I mention that the Ellen plays the voice of Dory????

FAVORITE PRINCESS: I would have to say Jasmine or Ariel. Tough call.

FAVORITE HEROINE: Merida for sure. She goes after what she believes and she is just so brave. No pun intended!

FAVORITE PRINCE: Shang from Mulan. Best looking prince by far. 

FAVORITE HERO: Prince Eric, hands down. 

FAVORITE ANIMAL: Pastel, the little thing from Tangled. He is just so adorable.

FAVORITE SIDEKICK: Tito from Oliver & Company. He is just so hilarious.

FAVORITE VILLAIN: Maleficent, I LOOVVVEE Maleficent the movie. It shows the good side of her and really explains why she is a villain.

FAVORITE ORIGINAL CHARACTER: The Aristocats. A great classic and family movie.

FAVORITE LOVE SONG: Love is an open door, (Frozen). I don’t like the fact that the cutest love song ever was a duet with a villain, but I will get over it.

FAVORITE VILLAIN SONG: That would have to be Mother Knows Best by Mother Gothel.

FAVORITE CLASSIC: I am going to keep referencing A goofy Movie, because it is my favorite.

SONG THAT ALWAYS GETS STUCK IN YOUR HEAD: Hakuna Matata.

FAVORITE PIXAR MOVIE: Inside Out, it is just so adorable and real.

LEAST FAVORITE MOVIE: Dumbo. It may be because Dumbo gets drunk and sees a bunch of pink and purple elephants? Or that his moma gets beat and separated from him. I don’t know, just not my favorite.

FAVORITE SEQUAL: Finding Dory, baby Dory is just so cute.

OVERRATED DISNEY MOVIE: I don’t think that any of them are really overrated to be honest.

UNDERRATED: The Great Mouse Detective, it is such a good movie.

MOVIE THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH: The Aristocats and The Emperor’s New Groove.

MOVIE THAT MAKES YOU CRY: UP! Oh my gosh, I remember the first time that I watched that movie, I balled my eyes out!

SADDEST SCENE IN YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE: I would have to say that the saddest scene in A Goofy Movie is when Max yelled at Goofy at Lester’s Possum Park.

SADDEST DEATH: Bambi’s mom. Tear..

FAVORITE QUOTE: “You’re only a fool if you give up.” -Aladdin

FAVORITE THEME PARK: I have only been to Disneyland in Anaheim once, and it was for grad night. 

FAVORITE ATTRACTION: Never rode one.

FAVORITE SHOW: This question isn’t really specific, so if we are taking about shows at Disneyland then it is the Firework show. If we are talking about shows on the Disney Channel, then they are Hannah Montana and That’s So Raven.

We have reached the end! I had so much fun answering these questions. They were a lot harder than you think! Feel free to do this tag and pass it on!

Skin Care Routine

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing to you all my skin care routine. This routine is something that works for my normal to dry skin. I hope that some of you find this post helpful! Now, let’s jump right in!

Wash my face!

I like to use an exfoliate scrub cleanser to wash my face, since I wear makeup often, I feel like an exfoliant product helps to remove whatever is left on my face. This one is from Walmart and super inexpensive!

Coconut Oil!

This product can be used for many things, but I  like to use it as a part of my skin care routine. Before I wash my face, I like to use this to take off all of my makeup. It breaks down the mascara and just helps all of the makeup come right off. After I have washed my face, I like to go in with the coconut oil again, and apply a generous amount to my face. I leave it on for about 5 minutes and then wipe it off. You would be surprised how much stuff this product removes. 

Soft lips! 

One all of that coconut oil is off I like to apple some type of lip butter or chapstick, this one is from the Fresh Picked collection at Bath and Body Works. It’s super hydrating and smells like strawberries. 

Last, but not least, I use some type of mask! 

I tend to get a lot of blackheads, so I gravitate towards a mud or charcole mask. These types of masks unclog pores! While I wait for my mask to dry, I like to clean up around the house or watch a show!

Anti-Valentine’s Day Makeup

Dah dah dahhhhhh!!!! 

Hello there, if you are reading this post, then obviously something caught your attention. Could it be the makeup? Or the fact that the title has the word ani in it? Well whatever it may be, I am glad that you stopped by! 

Welcome everyone, I have created an anti-Valentine’s Day makeup look for all of you! I have been seeing this look being created all over YouTube. I had never seen this before this year and thought that it looked very interesting.  I hope that you enjoy it, if you have already created a version of this, I would love to see it! Make sure to tag me on Instagram @bakersfieldbeautyblogger.

If you want to figure out how I got this makeup look, then keep on reading!

For this eye look, I used two eyeshadow pallets; one being the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eyes pallet, and the other being the Urban Decay MoonDust. I just love both of these pallet, you can create all kinds of looks! If you don’t have either of these pallets, you can still create this look as long as you have some brow, black, and glitter eyeshadow!


This look is really easy, but it contains a lot of blending and is very time consuming. I do have to say that this look may seem scary, but don’t knock it until you try it! There is always a first time to try something new.

For any eyeshadow look, I like to start out with a light brown shadow in my crease, once that is blended out, I will slowly start to add black shadow on top of that brown. I make sure and  only apply a little of the black at a time. It is a lot easier to build it than to take it away.

Once the black shadow is to my liking and blended out, I am going to add the white shadow to my brow bone to give it a little pop!

Next I am packing on the glitter shadow of my choice to my lid. I am also being very careful when applying it. Glitter tends to get EVERYWHERE! I am sure that I am going to find glitter in my room two months from now.

Once I have the glitter as intense that I want it, I am going to wing out my liner. 

Now it’s time to move on to the lower lash line. Since this look is very dark and mysterious, I added black liner in my water line. Then I took some black eyeshadow and ran it right underneath that liner.

I also took that same white shadow that I put on the brow bone, and popped it into the inner corner of the eyes. Since the eyeshadow is so dark, I want to brighten it just a little.

Once that is complete, it is time to throw on some lashes and get them ready for falsies.

Now it is time to pop on some false lashes and BAMM!!! I look good!

My choice of lip is LipLand Cosmetics “Retrograde”. This lip color is very dark and gives a meaning to the whole anti look! 

I would like to thank you for reading this blog post! I am sorry that I have been away for a little while, life just keeps me busy. I love you all and will talk to you in my next blog. Xoxo.
