Hey guys, it’s Alexi! Today I am going to be doing a night routine for you people. So without further due, let’s get started!

Ok, so I usually arrive home at about 3 pm or 4 pm. I usually change into some comfy pajamas or sometimes a night gown.

I just chill out in my room for a short while. This is the period where I usually just read, organize my room a bit, you know, stuff like that.

Then most of the time I decide to either take a bath or do my homework. I almost always take a bath first. Then after that, I put on my pajamas and I get hungry so I eat dinner.

Now, I do my homework. The teachers almost always give us a ton of homework so I am usually just buried in assignments.

After that, this is the time that I will be like “Whoo! No homework anymore!” and do a little happy dance, especially when it’s Friday.

I usually just watch YouTube before eating dessert. I watch AlishaMarie, Niki and Gabi, Laur Diy, MammaMiaMakeup, My Life as Eva and Wengie. #youtubeloverforever!

Now, I eat my most favorite thing in the world: Hershey’s Chocolate Almond Ice Cream! I usually just eat it from the tub.

After this, I usually start to get ready for bed. So I brush my teeth first. Then I brush my hair and put on some Moroccan Argan Oil. Now, I wash my face.

After that, I usually watch more YouTube before going to sleep. So sorry if this is short but I hope you liked this blog post. See you soon at Simply Alexi. As they say in Project Mc2, over and out!

Hey guys, it’s Alexi! Look, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And then you get all happy and fuzzy and warm and blah inside.

And then you realize….

” OH SHOOT! I HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE MY SIGNIFICANT OTHER/BEST FRIEND/FAMILY!”

That moment of realization though….lol.

Don’t worry, Alexi to the rescue.

Here are some FOOD ideas!

Number One: Chocolate Delight Cupcakes! Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Makes about twelve cakes. You will need: 110g (40z) butter (soft), 110g (40z) caster, Superfine sugar, cocoa powder (as much as you want), 2 medium eggs, 110g self raising flour, 1/2 baking powder, and for the sugar icing: 300g (11oz) icing w/ confectioner’s sugar, 2-5 tablespoons of water, and 2-5 drops of pink or red food coloring.

Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F/Gas 4. Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and mix them together well, using a fork to break up the butter. Crack the eggs into another bowl and beat them.

Then pour the eggs into the sugar and butter mixture and mix them in as well. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder into the bowl and mix it in with a metal spoon.

Put some red/pink/white cases on the baking tray or muffin tin. Spoon the mixture into the cake cases, filling them to just over halfway. Place them in the oven for twenty minutes, then take them to cool.

For the icing, place the sieved sugar icing in a bowl and add two tablespoons of water and your food coloring. Mix until smooth. Spread over cakes with a palette knife. If you want, you can top it with pink or red m&ms, heart candy, or pink, red, or white sprinkles. Yay! Your cupcakes are ready to be placed in a cute container and given to your significant other or best friend!

Number Two: The Valentine Sundae! For this you will need: Your significant other/best friend’s favorite ice cream,(optional) whipped cream, hot fudge and red, pink, or white sprinkles/ red or pink m&ms/ heart candy!

Get a nice container. Place the ice cream inside. Get the whipped cream and place quite a lot on top. Pour hot fudge on the ice cream. Now place your toppings of choice on top. Close the container, place in the fridge until valentines day, and your ice cream is ready!

Number Three:  Heart Cookies! Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 12 – 20 minutes. You will need heart cookie cutters, 150g of all purpose plain flour, two tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, a small pinch of salt, 2oz diced butter, 2 oz soft brown sugar, one medium egg, and 1 oz golden syrup. For the icing, check the icing for the first recipe in this article.

Preheat the oven to 160 C/ 325 F/ Gas 3. Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add the diced butter and mix it in well using your fingers, then stir in the brown sugar with the spoon. Add the egg to the golden syrup and mix well in another bowl with a fork.

Add this to the mixture and beat well until the dough comes together. Flour the work surface, dough, and a rolling pin well, then roll out the dough to about 5mm thick. Cut out the cookies with the heart cookie cutters.

Keep rolling them and cutting them until there is no more dough left. Put them in the oven and keep an eye on them until done. When done, place on a wire rack to cool. Make the icing from the first recipe in this article. Spread the icing on your cookies and top with your desired toppings.

Thank you for reading, and have a nice day!

Hey guys, it’s Alexi! Anyways, I shouldn’t make this intro too long so let’s get right into the post! (I was about to say video then I forgot I was not a YouTuber. Lol.)

Ok, so for this first one you will need: washi tape, Mod Podge, a mini tic tac container and a rectangle eraser the size of the container. Now paint the inside bottom of the container with Mod Podge. Paste the eraser inside. Now decorate the outside of the container with washi tape and if you want, you can label it or put stickers on it.

For the second one, you will need:Mod Podge, a plain composition notebook, and gold glitter. Paint the whole front part of the notebook with Mod Podge. Put the glitter on. Let dry and repeat on the back side.

For the third one you will need: glue, cute scrapbook paper, and plain pencils. Just glue the scrapbook paper on the pencils, cut it to length, and voila! Since it’s paper, it can still be sharpened, so you are good to go!

For the fourth one, you will need: a pen in which you can se the insides, Mod Podge, and glitter. Remove the inside of the pen, coat the inside of the container with Mod Podge, place the glitter inside, tap off the excess, let dry, place the inside back in and voila! Unicorn glitter pens!

For the fifth one, you will need: green felt, scissors, a glue gun, a red pouch, and a black pen. Or a yellow or white pen. Anyways, cut out a zig zag shape off the felt, so it should look like several triangles glued together facing up. Glue the green triangles onto the top of the pouch where the zipper is. Then put black dots everywhere so it looks like a strawberry. Or yellow. Or white. Voila! Strawberry pouch!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post just as much as I enjoyed researching for it and writing for it. See you tomorrow! Bye!

Hi guys! Second post of the day. Let’s just get right into the blog post!

Ok, so the reason why I did this is because I wanted to change up the theme of my blog.

So the purple macaroons are actually eraser containers. You can buy a whole box of them (three macaroon erasers included) at Divisoria.

The pusheen cut outs are handmade by me. And the hello kitty pins are a gift from someone.

The whole thing is layed out on the floor on a blanket.And again, no filter!

I am sorry this second post is short but I have to go. Goodbye!

Hey guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t been updating for a long time. My year has been so busy. By the way, Happy New Year!

So today I am going to do two posts: one post about my new flat lay picture (#nofilter!) and one post about my morning routine!

By the way, if any of you are Catholic or Christian, I’m going to have my first holy communion next week. Yay!

I’m not gonna make this intro too long, so let’s hop right into the blog post! Let’s go!

Ok. So I wake up in the morning in my bed. By the way, I use this special headgear thing as a sleeping mask.

You can make it a shower cap, a headband, a tube shirt, a face mask, an emergency (but really tight, I tried it) skirt, etc. I bought it in a store on Balesin island 3 years ago.

I use about three blankets. According to a YouTuber, the colder the room you sleep in, the more likely you are to get nightmares. Or lose weight. (The lose weight part was sourced from one of the videos of Wengie, a YouTuber. Go subscribe to her if you haven’t already.)

I drink some cold water first thing after I wake up, which gives me energy to get up and get ready. Then, I brush my teeth. I wash my face, and I usually use Mommy Patch’s French Milled Soap, or Dove’s white soap.

Then, I brush my hair. I usually put argan oil at the tips, and I really recommend Mommy Patch’s Moroccan Argan Oil. It is also known commonly as the “Liquid Gold” of Morocco.

Then, I put on my school uniform. I usually wear a sweater or jacket over it. I especially love fluffy sweaters.

For what jackets and sweaters I wear, my three favorites are: This brown Terranova jacket with fluffy white accents, this grey jacket with a slightly copper zipper, and this white sweater with pink heart gems on it.

I also wear this purple and white angel wing bracelet from The Craft Central, this purple Blueberry watch which was similar to Michelle Obama’s Toy Watch  (it’s a real watch brand), and these black glasses (I’m nearsighted) with Disney characters on the sides.

After that, I usually get my hair done by my mom. Instead of using hair gel, I use Mommy Patch’s lavender balm. It also works as a bite soother, a shoe cleaner, or something nice to smell. They also have a Eucalyptus balm.

I never need to pack my bag because I always do it the night before. (Tip: If your school notebooks look the same from the top, color the top corner of each notebook a different color. Then   You’ll always know which is which! Just make sure to either memorize the colors or keep a legend for the colors in your phone or in your pocket always on a piece of paper.)

After that, I head out the door. If you noticed, I didn’t eat breakfast, which is because I eat my breakfast in my car, a shiny white Volvo.

I have never rode a school bus in my life. Hah! If you’re wondering, I have this Smiggle string backpack which I use along with my other Hawk roller bag. My lunchbox is either this purple  Smiggle koala lunchbox or another backpack- like lunchbox.

Surprise, surprise: I have a breakfast-to-go idea for you! Get a mason jar, put some fruit in it, top it with yogurt, close the jar, grab a spoon and some tissue, and you are good to go!

That’s healthier than using a Nutella-to-go. Ha!

If you are a coffee type of person, instead of using a normal water bottle which spills on you when you drink lying down, use sippy cups instead. Same for tea. That’s another hack from Wengie!

If you want chips, bake pita bread until crispy. Cut up like chips. Place in a jar. Put anything you want on top, like dressing. Close the jar, grab a fork if you want, and done!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I am doing another post today, so make sure to check it out. Bye!
