My Favorite Things...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into Springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

We all remember that gorgeous song from 'The Sound of Music'. In Elementary school we had to sing this EVERY year at a Christmas concert, and oddly enough it inspired a post today. My favorite things.. everything from makeup, to random items that are just my favorite!

Fun Beauty Survey!

1.What time did you do your makeup today?
Around 11:30 , 12 ish! I was getting ready quickly to go to the states!

2. What's the least expensive beauty item you used?
My L'Oreal Mascara.. It's called Extra Collagen or something! It doesn't say on the bottle! It's AMAZING with my eyelashes!

3. What was the biggest problem you needed to correct?
Well I didn't like my eyeshadow, so I had to take it off with a wipe and redo it! But in terms of my face, I guess a scar above my lip! I hate it :( Any tips ?

4. Did you apply false eyelashes?
Nope! I'm hoping to buy some soon :)

5. Did you do anything while applying makeup?
I listened to 'The Hills' in the background. Oh the DRAMA.

6. Biggest makeup mishap today?
I didn't like my eyeshadow, so I had to take it all off and re-do it! Oh and I put too much mascara on my lower lashes, but it just gave me doll-looking eyes! I ended up loving it <3

7. Did you have a makeup inspiration in mind?
Neutral, but gorgeous. Something to bring out the eyes. 'The Hills' was on, so I was thinking Lauren Conrad too!

8. What's the most time-consuming part of your makeup routine?
Gel eyeliner.. I can never get it to match for some reason!

9. What's part of your routine is the most fun?

Eyeliner! I adore what it does to my eyes.

13. Do you do your hair or makeup first?
Hair.. makeup looks better to me when my hair is done!

14. Did you pack a makeup bag to take with you for the day?
Not anything that I don't usually carry! Lipgloss, little mascara, bobby pins & oil blotting paper, ect! No powder or eyeshadow! I hate re-applying makeup!

15. When did you finish your makeup?
Around 15 to 20 minutes after I started. Usually it's shorter, but I had to take my ES off :/

They. Found. Out.

I am no longer an anonymous beauty "guru" on YouTube. Yup, some guys at my school found out about them, and before you know it, most of the guys know.

Imagine this...

I come to school on Monday and it's lunch time. I'm standing at my locker getting my money out for lunch with some of my friends, when a bunch of guys are staring at me, finally I look at them and say WHAT?!?! and one of my "closer" guy friends comes up to me and says "Are you on YouTube".

I was in shock. How did they find out. Why?!

I replied sarcastically: No, it's just my twin. Of course it's me.

Much to my surprise they handled it extremely well and with no making fun, laughing, ect, what so ever. I appreciated that.

I was thinking though. YouTube is NOTHING to be ashamed of. I love doing this and all I do is make videos. It's not that big of a deal.

So now i'm no longer a secret. People know.

And I don't care.

It all started when...

It all started on September 11th, 2008 when Allie decided to join the makeup community by uploading a horrendous Mini Sephora Haul onto her channel (it's still up, btw. But I think i'll make it private soon!). I was ecstatic when I got my first subscriber and comment, and never expected my channel to blossom into something so amazing and that I loved.
Now one year later, on September 11th, 2009 I still cannot believe that I am still doing this for one, but also, I cannot believe how many people have found me.

When I started my channel, I hardly estimated for 30 people to find me. When I hit 200 subscribers, I remember exactly where I was. I was sitting on my bed (in my old bedroom decor!) with my best friend and she announced it. Now with over 3,000 subscribers, I am in utter shock and I cannot believe it.

Subscriber count doesn't mean anything to me, but when I do think about it, and think about what 3,000 people look like, it's crazy to me. Imagine fitting over 3, 000 people in your house!

What I want to tell you guys is that even though I may be growing, not only in my age but also on YouTube, I always want to remain the same Allie to everybody. I would never want you guys to see me as stuck up, or as rude, or as me thinking i'm better than you.
And i'm telling you now. If I ever become like that, where I think i'm all that and a bag of chips, PLEASE tell me. I will not be offended!

I want you guys to know that I appreciate each and every one of you!
