⠀⠀Hello! and welcome to sanguile, my personal blog which focuses on beauty, fashion, life and everything in-between!

Merci pour la visite.

Happy New Year! In true me fashion I'm a little late, only by a couple months, but you know! The end of 2017 went by so slow, but also was a blur. So hopefully that kind of explains the crazy I feel I was dealing with. I ended up quitting my job right before Christmas. I worked at the worst place possible, at least from an employee viewpoint(also a shopper viewpoint if you ask me personally, I never shopped there before I was hired to be honest). I quit due to crazy amounts of depression which the job only added onto. I hoped that after quitting I would feel a lot less stressed and more relaxed, but sadly for a while after quitting I still felt this way, some days even more so. I'm still slightly dealing with this, but I'm also trying to get back to life. Which brings in important thing numero dos! I did get a new job. It's actually online, remote and deals with fashion. I'm totally thrilled. This is the dream job I was looking for. Mainly something remote, that was more on my own terms. Sadly I was taking it for granted while I was dealing with my mental exhaustion. Then even after trying to get to work I realized that a remote job might not be perfect for me, or at least easy. However, I'm not going to quit. I learned that quitting is easy in thought, but tends to create even more difficult situations. So, I'm going to challenge myself. I want to prosper in 2018 like I never have in any previous year. I'm going to work hard on my job, travel a bit more with sister, do better at saving money, try to start classes again, work out, eat better and enjoy life. I guess that could be considered a small list of resolutions. Honestly the smaller, the better at the moment. Of course I know everyone lists working out and eating healthier, but I have been wanting too for a while. I just couldn't figure out how to get things done with all the stress I was under at my last job. I felt stuck in a dead end and couldn't figure out any positives. Other than that I am ready. I feel ready for 2018! I'm excited for the fun, excitement and adventures I believe it will bring and the experiences I'll have and learn from. Until next time, which will hopefully be real soon, au revoir!!
About Ally Admin
Ally is a twenty-something old blogger from Southern California, who is studying to become a LVN. In her free time she enjoys photography, watching Netflix, cocktails & cuddling with her basset hound. ♥
CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION - SOME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS MAY BE IRRELEVANT AT THIS TIME FOR THIS CURRENT BLOG AND WILL BE UPDATED ACCORDINGLY!!
The FAQ page was made, simply, with the idea that some people may not want to ask me about everything, some people may be too shy or sometimes it might even take me a while to respond. I know from first hand experience, that it can take a lot of guts to message someone a question and either they don't reply or they might think it's too personal or whatever. First I will say I don't consider anything too personal. I hope that everyone who reads my blog feels free to talk to me like we are old friends and ask me anything about EVERYTHING! However, if you prefer to just read and not message yet, or I'm taking too long for a reply, feel free to check the questions below. This page will be updated as more questions come in! ♥
My name is Alexis, but I'll often use any nickname I come up with at the time.
Most commonly used are:
My blog name roughly translates to Ally Loves. I had prior names, one that was used too often, one I didn't really love and I wanted something that I felt would fit in with my plans to have a lifestyle+ blog. Thus I decided to throw some French in, since I'm French & African-American, I feel the name is me, part english/part french. ;]
To be honest I'm terrible at explaining this. The basics are that my dad is French, born & raised with fully French parents. My mum is African-American, born & raised with fully American parents. I am born in America, I am American. I often say that I am French-American though, in the sense that my father is. I have met parts of my French family. So, I don't know how else to describe it than like that, but I just say I'm French-American!
I use Photoshop CS3, it's my favourite! I usually brighten some pictures or use some of my own actions. I also sometimes use camera/photo editing apps(be sure to comment & let me know if you want to see a post on how i edit my instagram photos!), but those pictures are usually posted to Instagram!
I will always check out your blog or posts when you ask and link me to them! I usually follow beauty, fashion & lifestyle/personal blogs. If you fall into any of those categories, then I'll probably follow you. To be honest if you have beautiful photos, fun posts and are active you will probably get a follow. Nowadays I follow using bloglovin' and clean out my subscription list every couple of months. I don't follow celebrity/fan blogs. I want to read about your life!
If it's something that is relevant to me, than more than likely I'll check it out. I try to review all skin care products I can get my hands on! I also try to review as many makeup/beauty products as I can! I also review stores, restaurants, fashion, etc. I also sometimes review random things like: books, food, magazines, movies, other blogs, etc! You can find most of my already reviewed items in the review part of the navigation section. If you ask me on Twitter, I can reply to you a lot quicker with a yes or no and a link!
As of right now, it usually says so at the end of the post. On the right it will say something along the lines of, "I was compensated for this post The review and my opinion are 100% honest." or "This product was sent to me for free by (insert company) for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own and 100% honest!".
Psh, that's a loaded question. Sometimes you have people Email you, other times you do all the work. A lot of bloggers won't tell you that a lot of the items you get you have to apply for. Not to say that companies won't contact you, some will. A lot of stuff I've reviewed for free have come from sites like Influenster or SheSpeaks! Other things have come from "blogger job" sites. I recommend joining a lot of different blogger communities, like the Lucky Magazine Blogger community and so on. They are there to help you promote your blog and find other blogs like yours and sometimes offer freebies or items for the bloggers to review. If you want an extensive list of sites, E-mail me(xAlexiia@live.com) and I'll send you some of my favourites.
To be honest, that's another loaded question. Prices for banner ads are on the advertising page, but some banner ads on my blog are simply affiliate ads, therefor not guaranteeing I make any money. The prices of posts are discussed prior to the post being made, once again if I'm even being paid for it, as some payments are usually the free item I'm receiving, nothing more. I work along side blogging, so I make money that way too. There is no set monthly payment from my blog.
I am sorry that you had a bad experience with the site/company. My experience is posted in the review you read. I can not be held accountable for anything anothr company does, just because they advertised with me. Please tell the company and if I get enough complaints about them I will not work with them again. However, I advise you try to contact them about your issue.
More information about Sadie(for all you dog lovers) can be found at the bottom of the about page.
I did not name her Sadie. My aunt, Zena, had two bassett hounds and she was on of their babies that she kept and named for about a year and a half, before she passed away and she was given to my mum.
Ask more Questions?!
If you have more questions, please ask them via my contact form or by emailing me at xAlexiia@live.com.

Product reviews are simple. You send me your product to try out, I write a draft review of you product, you read it over, if you agree I post it. There are rules for all product reviews:
➸All products must be FULL size. I WILL NOT review sample sized products. ➸Products WILL NOT be returned. Once the item is sent to me and reaches me, it becomes my property. ➸If you choose to not have a post published(due to the review not being to your liking, negative review, dates don't sync, etc.) you will not be refunded and the item will not be sent back. ➸All items will require atleast a 2 week review period. Beauty products will require a month. Health/Fitness items require 30 days at the least. Some beauty tools can be reviewed in a week. Food items can be reviewed in a week, unless otherwise stated. Although for the best reviews(good photographs, research, etc) two weeks should be allowed. ➸Items I consider to be overpriced or not relevant to my blog, myself or my readers will probably not be accepted. ➸All product review posts include original images and opinions. If you want me to use a brand image or add paragraphs of your choosing then the review becomes a sponsored post and can be done for a fee. ➸As most of my posts are scheduled, you will be given a time span your product can be posted in. If there is a certain time you want a post, mention it and it can be considered.(Not including Holidays: Valentine's Day, Halloween & Christmas.) ➸Adult toys will not be reviewed on the blog at all, they will be accepted and can be reviewed in a guest post on your sites blog or a private video review for your site, depending. Other items(including, but not limited to: lube, lingerie, lotions, etc) will be decided on as they come. Hygiene products/feminine products do not fall into this category, obviously.
All product reviews come with the review post. Tweets & Instagram posts can be added on for an additional small fee. Youtube video reviews can replace the blog post, please check the youtube section for details on that or they can accompany the blog post for an additional fee.
Guest blogging is a fun and great way for fellow bloggers to collaborate with allyaime for free. I accept guests posts at all times, but some may not be posted until weeks later. The time of the planned post will be discussed with the blogger, unless it is a seasonal post, in which it will be posted at an appropriate time.
➸All posts must fit the theme of the blog. ➸Adult product posts will not be allowed, posts that are acceptable will be discussed. ➸I do not accept guest posts from companies, business or web shops.
•Companies, etc. can collaborate via sponsored posts. ➸All posts must include at least one photo.
•Photos must be your own property to use or you must have all rights to use the photo. ➸I prefer that the posts be at least 360 words.
•All posts must be original content written by the guest poster and may not be posted anywhere else. ➸Guest post cannot be sponsored and
➸All guests posts will have an accompanying twitter shout out like every post. ➸All guests posts have a short bio about the author posted, with a photo, link to their blog and 2 other social links of their choosing. ➸You can contact about guests posts at any time, but there's no guarantee I will be looking for posts at that time.
For $15 per photo you can advertise on my instagram. You can advertise a product, page, giveaway or event.

This is as simple as it sounds. If you want a sponsored tweet, which can include: a link, photo(s), @ mention and so on.
➸Tweets stay posted forever, as I don't delete my tweets. ➸Tweets can be scheduled, since a lot of my tweets are scheduled in advance. ➸Tweets may not contain links to adult sites or services. ➸Nor may they allow X-rated photos. Photos will be decided on as they are sent. ➸Text must fit in one tweet, including any @mentions, links, photo links, hashtags and a spot for (ad) to be added. ➸All tweets are sent out 2x, one in morning and one during evening/night. ➸Multiple tweets on multiple days can be paid for.
