Favourite YouTubers at the moment

28 December 2013

So I hope everyone has had a fabulous Christmas! Mine was okay, overall means great! I worked Christmas Eve and Boxing Day so not much of a holiday for me. Buut as promised; I have selected some of my favourite YouTubers. They all do make up and beauty so it’s all nice and varied. I don’t think they are in any particular order if I’m honest, I was just scrolling through my subscriptions and writing them down – so that’s the order then I guess.

 First we have SianShutterbug:

 I can’t remember how I came across her (probably clicking from one YouTuber to another) but I absolutely love her! Not only is she gorgeous (I love her hair) and has amazing style and make-up taste. I purchased Sleek’s Fandango Purple because of her - oh the influence. I love Sian’s personality in her videos – she’s upbeat and likeable. I love seeing the things she reviews, especially make-up because I feel we have similar tastes. Her reviews always seem very honest and she reviews products to suit all budgets. I really encourage you to watch her – she’s even replied to a few of my YouTube comments and has been incredibly lovely!

 Now we have TheAnothergirlslife:

 I love her! Her car vlogs are the best and she’s really funny in all her videos. She seems really down to earth and so real in her videos. Like Sian, you can really see Mary's personality in her videos and it’s one that I love. She does great reviews of things too, really honest ones. And all round she’s bloody hilarious to watch, I love just getting a cup of tea when I watch her channel.

 StyleNina is another favourite:

A friend from uni actually introduced me to her and I absolutely love her! The one video that sticks out for me is her accent tag video which you can find here. Seriously so hilarious and how amazing is she at doing accents?! She is so excitable and funny (are you noticing a trend) and I love the variety in her videos. She’s American and I don’t actually follow that many American YouTubers but I am absolutely in love with her style and her hair!

 My next favourite is Shirley B. Eniang:

Shirley seems like such a lovely girl! Honestly I cannot get over how down to earth she is, such an inspiring quality in a person. And she is gorgeousss. I actually love following her and StyleNina because I can see what make-up looks like on someone with a similar skin tone to me – it’s good to see people review products but much nicer to see how it would fit your complexion. I looooove watching Shirley and her hair updates, they give me so many ideas and I just want all the hair she has! I’m actually watching one of her hair videos right now (good thing I've just bought a curling wand). I really encourage you to watch her channel and read her blog – she’s a huge favourite of mine.

 My final favourite is Annie Jaffrey.
Annie is American and when I was watching her she lived in America, but after like 2 weeks after subscribing she moved to London! At least now I won’t have to deal with wanting something and finding out I can only get it if I pay extortionate shipping costs. Annie has the most positive personality ever and she encourages her viewers to be positive – so so cute. One of my favourite things about Annie is her healthy lifestyle – her channel really is an all rounder. She does fashion, make-up and health and it’s just great. One of the best things I’ve found about her videos is that they are informative – it’s one thing to give reviews about things but it’s another to really know what you’re talking about and Annie really has that down.

 So those are my favourite YouTubers at the moment. I did have a couple others written down but I thought I would keep it short and sweet and 5 seemed to be the magic number. Sorry about the quality of the images, I've been trying to sort it out for a week but no avail every time I crop the quality diminishes :( I really wasn't sure what image to use to show you guys them, but in the end opted for those images so you could see what kind of things they post. Be sure to check out their channels – they are all such lovely ladies!

Look right through me.

4 December 2013

I have been so MIA it's terrible. But I just have not found the inspiration or the will to post. See I've put on weight in the past year and a half and quite honestly I just feel gross! So I wonder around in baggy clothing and leggings. And now that I only go to work (I wear a uniform) or round to my best friends house to moan about life (leggings and a top), I don't actually need to wear actual clothes right? Right. Okay that's a lie - I volunteer, a lot, but even then I'm a volunteer I don't actually need to look good! 

This is an outfit  from maybe two weeks ago? Not the best quality of photos - sorry! I picked up the boots from Primark for all of £18! I love wondering around in them, they are comfortable and I got a size up for my insole - double comfort. 

Whilst I haven't been blogging I have been reading blogs and getting very much into YouTube and make-up. Which has just left me ridiculously poor because I buy everything I see! I got myself the Real Techniques Core Collection and fell in love with the buffing brush - it is my holy grail now. I threw out all my old make-up brushes and have not looked back. Talking of YouTube influences, I just got my Muji Acrylic draws in the post, who would have thought I would ever own enough make to even put in there! Although I'll probably just jam all the other crap on my table in there. I also purchased Sleek's 'Smother' the other day, this I actually saw when I was shopping with my sister. 

Isn't the colour gorgeous?! I feel like it's perfect A/W (see YouTube has it's influences, I even know trends). So anyway back to YouTube - I will have to do a post with all my favourite beauty/fashion YouTubers! I now have a huge beauty wishlist! 

I'm also waiting on my New Look order, they had 20% off the other day and I got excited. I also ordered a pair of jeans because I am in desperate need of some. I LOVE Topshop's Joni jeans, the fabric is great and they don't feel like jeans - even better! But they tear easily - I have gone through 2 in about 5 months! For someone that doesn't wear jeans all the time I cannot be repurchasing something I know wears quite easily, especially now that I don't have my student discount! So I thought I would see what New Look had to offer me. Has anyone got jeans from there? 

I think that's all for my update/ramble! Orange is the new black has just finished downloading so I am going to busy for next couple of hours!
