I'm Shannon Alexandra. I'm a beauty, fashion, lifestyle and health blogger based in the UK, twentyone years old and a full-time student. I completed my first year of University at the University of Derby, where I studied Biology and Chemistry. I have now transferred to Sheffield Hallam University where I now study Pre-Medical Biology. My plan is to work my way through my honours degree, a masters degree and a PhD. I'm also a fully trained make-up artist, having worked for some of the biggest global brands. 

shannonalexandra.co.uk (previously lexieblogs) was founded in March 2011. It started out as a hobby and is now part of my career. I wrote mostly about beauty and fashion in my spare time. I used to flick through magazines and make scrapbooks of different outfits and concepts. Although this paper-based fashion editing was fun, nobody would see my work. I wanted to be noticed and credited for my ideas, so I searched the internet and found Blogger: the perfect platform to share my thoughts and ramblings. Since sharing my content, my blog has grown in ways I never anticipated. I also freelance in fashion and beauty journalism; collaborating with a spectrum of businesses to keep my followers and readers up-to-date with current trends. I'm ever so thankful that I've had the opportunity to work with brands and companies that I grew up admiring. I plan to keep blogging for the foreseeable future; I have no intention to quit anytime soon. If you want to keep on top of my daily activities, feel free to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Bloglvin' and Pinterest.
