My name is Alexa, I’m a beauty blogger based in Montreal, Canada into all things practical beauty.
Why and how I started blogging
I first stumbled upon the blogging world in 2009 while I was jobless and freshly graduated from C.E.G.E.P. My journey started with rummaging the courage post outfits on chictopia and lookbook.nu, but I had no idea what I was doing. However, I felt inadequate because other bloggers had better lighting, more time and photography skills.
Once I discovered the beauty and fashion community on youtube, I found the motivation to pursue fashion blogging via video. I started a channel in September 2009 under a pseudonym which turned to stealingbeauty in March 2010. Finally, I renamed my account Alexa Likes, simply because I share my likes.
Today, Alexa Likes is comprised of an assortment of beauty related content:
- beauty product reviews
- product launches
- makeup tutorials
- skincare routines for oily skin
- lipstick swatch videos
- foundation trials for oily skin
Occasionally, I post hair tutorials, bodycare, beauty diys etc. As a result, I have reached over 63,000 subscribers and more than 11 million video views!
I’m very happy to be able to share and express my interests with all of you. I would love to hear your thoughts, so don’t be shy, leave me a comment or two.
Here are all the places you can follow me:
- Youtube – where I post all my videos, subscribe here
- Twitter – find out what I’m up to and read my daily blurs
