What time do you call this?

Well hello you lovely lot.
It feels like forever since I've put Pen to Paper. Well..Hands to Keyboard?

It's been a crazy few Months.
I have so much to tell you but first off, if you have no idea of what's been going on, it's probably because you don't follow me on Twitter or aren't subscribed to my Channel, so make sure you do!

Right, now that we've got that out of the way, here's what's been going on, in the World of Amy Lauren..

1. Weight Loss Journey - I've been on a healthy lifestyle regime from May and so far, I've lost 3 stone! Can I get a mini-Mexican Wave?! WOO HOO! I still have a lot more to lose but I am super proud of myself! It wasn't easy but honestly, it is totally worth it!

2. My YouTube Channel - I've recently completely rebranded my Channel and if you are subscribed, you'll know I've been putting in a lot more effort into my Videos and am actually uploading Weekly now! It would be incredible if you could Subscribe and show your support! Here's a link to my Channel!

3. Travelling - Some of you may know, but I have been busy planning holidays for the end of this Year/Next spring! I am so excited and honestly, can't wait to document it all through this Blog and the YouTube Channel!

4. Playlist Live 2016 - Playlist Live is a YouTube convention held in Orlando, Florida every Year and I'm so excited to announce that I will be travelling over with 3 of my Best Friends on Youtube, for the convention, in April 2016!

5. New Friends - I've been making new friends and reconnecting with old ones! There's this incredible group of people going to Playlist and I'm honestly so excited. It's so refreshing when someone can be on the other side of the World but who has the same passion as you and when you have a Vision for a project, they just get it! It's rare to find someone who you feel like you've been friends with for a lifetime, when it's only been over a Year! Those are the friendships you need!

6. This Blog - It may seem like I have slightly neglected this little piece of the Interwebs but you might've noticed that I recently gave this Blog a little lick of Paint! I hope you like it! I go through these moments when I focus more on my YouTube and then my Blog. Right now, I'm trying to find that happy medium!

PHEW! That was a lot of information!

Give yourself a pat on the back if you made it all the way to the end of this Post!
What have you been up to recently? Let me know!

Love Always..

My YouTube Channel!

I've never written much about my YouTube Channel.
In my Head, they are completely separate. My YouTube Channel is somewhere that I can voice my Opinions, thoughts and general ramblings. I'm able to try different editing styles, different types of Videos etc.

The Blog is different. If you could see how fast I was writing this Post, you'd get it. It makes more of a connection to the reader. I try to avoid a filter. I find this with other Blogs that I read, as well as when I read my old Posts!

Saying that, I feel that it's time to connect the two passions of my Life. YouTube and Blog! I have been making online Videos for roughly 2 Years. I had a beauty Channel until last Summer, when I decided to delete it and to start fresh. I started my current Channel, which I've had for over a Year.

You may be wondering why I only have a Handful of Videos on it. I had a lot more Videos but decided to delete them as I was making Videos but not enjoying it, as much. It took me a while to figure out the type of Videos that I want to make.
That brings us up to today. I don't know if many of you know about my Channel but I would really appreciate the blogging Community's support! The community has always been here for me and even more so than ever, it would be incredible if you could support me!

It would be amazing if you could head over to my Channel and click that Subscribe button! New Videos weekly, as a thank you!

Here is the Link! It would be amazing if you could click it!

Love Always..

My Skin Saviour | First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

Skincare fascinates me. I've sais this before (Many times) but there's something about learning the science behind why you should put a certain ingredient on your Skin, has always fascinated me.

One of my favourite Blogs to read, is Mrs Caroline Hirons. I've mentioned her on here, on my Youtube channel and even got a retweet off her on Twitter (Which I was totally calm about, by the way..*Ahem*). She mentions a lot of products for many different Skin types so one Day, I decided to sit down and research the products she had recommended for my Skin type, which is Oily/Combination.

Upon some research, I found a little Gem known as the First Aid beauty Facial Radiance Pads, which is an Acid Toner. When I first heard the word 'Acid', I instantly thought that they weren't for me and honestly, they scared me. The thought of putting Acid on your Face, was quite Alien to me. I decided to give them a go as being a Blogger, they intrigued me.
