April 2017 Playlist

april 2017 playlist

As a way to get back into the world of blogging, I want to kick it off with one of my favorite kinds of posts. I have been listening to some awesome music here lately and I wanted to share that awesomeness with you guys! It’s a wild mix but I love it. Ed Sheeran’s new album has given me life and attending the American Nightmare Tour with Bring Me The Horizon, Beartooth, and Underoath just brought out that love even more. There’s also some random rap mixed in there because you know your girl has her dancin’ side!

Blogmas Day 12 | Favorite YouTubers of All Time

YouTube is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but never had the guts to go through with (I’m planning for this to change soon ?). I seriously admire those who can get in front of a camera and just be themselves. I love watching videos of so many different kinds, from my favorite lifestyle and beauty gurus to gameplay for League of Legends and voice impressions. That being said, I’m going to share with you (as of now) my favorite YouTubers of all time!

#1 Laura Lee

This girl has slowly become my ride-or-die YouTuber. She’s hilarious, quirky, sweet, and GORGEOUS. I love all the different things she offers, from weird beauty hacks to makeup tutorials that slay my existence. She is one of the most down-to-Earth YouTubers I’ve ever come across. She even has shared how she went from being “fake” on camera to learning to finally be herself to her subscribers. And I think that this is what makes her so amazing.

#2 Jaclyn Hill

Everyone loves this girl. She’s easily one of the most well-known beauty gurus of all time. She’s been on YouTube for ages and has become a hit among young teens. She’s done several collaborations with brands–best known for her Becca collaboration in creating the highlighter, Champagne Pop–and she has done exceptionally well from herself. Being able to share her personal life, her backstory, and so much more with her subscribers is something that hits home with me. I always love when I can connect with the people I watch on YouTube. She makes that sooo easy.

#3 Shaaanxo

Another well-known beauty guru, Shan, is definitely in my top favs for the YouTube world. She is such a light-hearted and happy woman. I love the amount of creativity she puts into her channel. Although I love a good smokey eye, she brings life back into makeup. Everything from special effects to get ready with me videos, she’s got you covered. She rocks a bold lip and makes me feel like nothing is too unique for me.

#4 Brizzy Voices

Although she does some beauty videos, one that breaks away from my normal watching needs on YouTube is Brizzy! She is an amazing YouTubers that is well known for her voice and singing impressions. She can do so many different things that it honestly amazes me. I even used one of her impressions as my text tone one time (yes, I’m a dork). On a real note though, she’s so happy and lively all the time and makes YouTube fun again. Plus, we share a HUGE love for Harry Potter.

#5 Madison Miller

Although I did not discover Madison until around a year ago, I’ve quickly fallen in love with her. I remember finding out that she used to be a teacher (which is my career path) and I was so excited. She’s seriously so gorgeous and amazing with her makeup skills. I love that she is so generous to her subscribers, constantly doing giveaways, and always gives us the down low on new products with her famous “Dope or Nope” videos. I can always turn to her for an honest review!

#6 ThatGirlShaeXo

This girl has been a ride or die for me for awhile now. From everything to her weight loss journey to her battles with acne-prone skin, I relate to so many REAL things that she talks about on her channel. Although she is known for being a beauty guru, she adheres to what I consider a large audience with her various types of videos. I adore her beauty videos just as much, though! I love when she does live swatching and I KNOW that Mama needs a little forehead bronzer to make her looks complete!

#7 Laura Leth

Although best known for her “Instagram-esque” videos–where she just showing you everything without voicing it, I love her to death. She does AMAZING makeup looks and uses such a great variety of drugstore and high-end products, in my opinion. Her looks are what drew me in because her makeup always looks flawless. She even has her own eyelash line, if I’m not mistaken, and she says that she wears lashes daily so what would be more appropriate?!

And that’s it for my favorite YouTubers! Although I have many that I watch and adore, these are the ones that keep me coming back again and again (even if I stray away for a little while). I love them all dearly and could only dream of getting to meet each of them some day. And if by some miracle they are reading this, I might pass out. ?

July Favorites | YouTubers + Videos

I know most people do favorites all in one big, huge, gigantic post where they talk abut a variety of products, shows, people, etc. but I really wanted to divide things up because I don’t feel like these things are getting enough attention when you just put them in a big post and write a sentence about why you loved them!

The first favorites post that I’ll be sharing from the month of July is all about YouTubers! If you know me at all, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with beauty gurus on YouTube and even just funny, happy-go-lucky people who make amazing videos. I’ve been obsessed with a few people during the past month and I wanted to give them some love and share some videos that I really enjoyed from them recently.

NikkieTutorials

If you’ve never heard of this lady, what are you doing with your life?! She’s an insanely popular YouTuber that does amazing beauty videos and just came out with her own collection in collaboration with Too Faced (which looks flipping gorgeous). Her videos always crack me up because she’s so full of life and has an insane amount of talent in the makeup department. Plus, she’s not afraid of a challenge (She has done a full face highlighter challenge, full face kid’s makeup challenge, full face liquid lipstick challenge, and so much more!). Here are some videos I loved from her recently!

Madison Miller

This is a YouTuber that I discovered recently through a giveaway post and I’ve loved watching her videos and reading her blog every since. She’s super sweet and fun-loving. She has a nice little sense of humor and she does great review videos called “Dope or Nope” where she talks about hot new products. She’s very honest and doesn’t falter with her opinions, which I highly respect (even if I don’t agree with them!). I sincerely recommend her if you’re not already following.

Jeffree Star

There has been so much controversy surrounding this YouTuber here lately and I don’t really want to get much into that, but I will say that I don’t judge my thoughts on someone based on their past. No one is perfect and everyone has a different way of expressing themselves. I love Jeffree’s style, his makeup skills are off the chain, and he’s hilarious. I even follow him on Snapchat (@jeffreedahmer) and he’s constantly cracking me up.

Laura Lee

I am sooo obsessed with Laura Lee. I don’t know how I never found her before but it’s only within the last couple of months that I discovered her on YouTube. She’s so darn hilarious. I love her funny faces, amazing sense of humor, and the over light-hearted, sweet feel of all of her videos. She’s a great YouTuber that definitely has earned everything she’s gotten from being on there!

KathleenLights

And last, but certainly, not least, I had to talk about KathleenLights! I’ve been watching her videos for a looong time now but I’ve recently gotten back into watching some of her recent ones. I love how honest she is and how she always is herself, no matter if it’s on Snapchat or behind the camera on YouTube. She’s a hilarious and beautifully talented woman and I love her channel!

And that is it for my favorite YouTubers and videos from the month of July! I really hope you all discovered a new beauty vlogger to follow (sorry I didn’t have anything but beauty gurus to share but they’re kinda my thing ?). Let me know your favorite YouTubers that you discovered in July in the comments below!
