Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an amazing rising YouTube beauty/fashion/lifestyle star that y’all need to be subscribed to. If you haven’t heard of Lindsay Marie (aka lindsaylovesbeauty) then you are seriously behind on what new channels you should be obsessed with. Don’t worry I got you covered! So please read on to see why all of your friends will be subscribing to this awesome channel. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The first video that we’re going to discuss is Lindsay’s ‘Bethany Mota Lookbook!’ video, which was uploaded on December 8th, 2013 you can check out the video below). I thought that this video was a great introduction to Lindsay’s channel, because we not only get to see Lindsay’s personality and natural on-camera charisma shine through, but we also get a sense of what her personal style is. It’s also really cool to see gurus showing love to other gurus, it’s one of the things that makes YouTube so great. One thing is for sure, you will definitely want to take fashion notes from Lindsay after seeing this video! The next video that we’re going to talk about is Lindsay’s ‘Morning Routine | First Day of School!’ video, which was uploaded on August 6th, 2014. What I think we all love about “routine” videos is that we get to know our fav YouTubers even better (and sometime we get cool ideas about décor, new foods to try, new Netflix shows to obsess over, etc.). If you want to check out a fun video that will help you unwind and maybe get some suggestions to add to your own school morning routine, then definitely check this video out.
Next up we have Lindsay’s ‘High School You Vs College You’ video, which was uploaded on July 19th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). I LOVED this video, because it is so funny, and very true. I know that everyone says “you change when you go to college”, “college is different than high school”, blah, blah, blah (and this is very true), but this video definitely does an AMAZING job of explaining some of the differences. I would definitely suggest you check out this video, because it will have you laughing and replaying the video again and again. The final video that we’re going to talk about is Lindsay’s ‘Back To School Clothing Haul 2015’, which was uploaded on July 30th, 2015. You knew that we couldn’t end this blog post without mentioning a haul. With Back To School season upon us, this is a video that can really be essentially when you’re trying to figure out what you want to buy for this school year. Hauls also help you discover new items, stores, and websites so you can find the best stuff to reflect who you want to be this school year. Once again, in this video we get to see Lindsay’s great on-camera presence, as well as her amazing sense of fashion. This is definitely a great video to check out before you finish your back to school shopping.
Keep up with everything Lindsay is doing:
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about some new jeans that iPhone owners are going to love. These jeans come equipped with super cool technology that allows you to charge your phone with special cords connected to the jeans. Since our phones are basically the center of our worlds (I mean how else would we watch YouTube or Netflix, or go on social media…wow makes you wonder what people did before smart phones? Scary isn’t it?). So now let’s talk a little bit about the technology that is about to change our lives (but remember to read any and all safety instructions included with these jeans so you can stay safe). Ready? Ok, lets go!!!
A company called Joe’s Jeans have developed jeans called the #Hello jeans, that have “a patent pending pocket that perfectly holds your iPhone so you can charge your phone on-the-go,”. So basically this means that there is a small (but deep) pocket that perfectly holds the iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, and 6, and charges them through a small cord found on the waistband of the jeans, and a batter back that you can detach when you need to wash the jeans. The battery can charge an iPhone 5/5s/5c up to 80-85% and an iPhone 6 up to 70%, but the jeans are $189 plus $49 extra for the battery. Even thought this is pricey, you do get the convenience of never missing the perfect selfie opportunity so I guess we better add these jeans to our Christmas lists. These jeans definitely make you wonder what technology will bring us next. Check out the video below to see how the jeans work.
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ blog we are featuring Beauty Guru/Singer Natasha Bure. This young rising YouTube star has only been on YouTube for a short time, but has already proven that she is very knowledgeable about beauty, fashion, and how to capture the undivided attention of an audience. At the young age of 16, Natasha has shown through her videos that she is an intelligent, charismatic young entertainer who will very soon take the internet by storm. It’s easy to see where Natasha’s talent as an entertainer comes from, if you consider the fact that her mother is actress Candace Cameron Bure (who most know as DJ Tanner from the highly popular sitcom Full House). Trust me, once you see one of Natasha’s videos, you will instantly become a fan and will also want to see this young talent blossom into the next YouTube queen.
Natasha uploaded her first YouTube video on August 11th, 2014 Natasha Bure Official Youtube + All About It). This video was an introductory video that tells viewers what to except on the channel in the future. I decided to mention this video not only because it is the first one on the channel, but also because even in a video with such sole content, Natasha is able to show that she is funny, relatable, comfortable on camera, and most importantly, very fun to watch. The next video that we are going to discuss is Natasha’s ‘August Favorites’ video which she uploaded on August 21st, 2014 (August Favorites ). This video covered Natasha’s favorite beauty/skin products, movies, and miscellaneous products of the month. I really loved all of the products that Natasha mentions in her video, and I also loved the mixed between high end and inexpensive items that she had in the video, I definitely think that this makes the video appeal to a wider range of audience. In this video, Natasha also allows her bubbly personality to shine, and certainly will make everyone wish they could be her BFF (also, the mean girls reference was great…Glenn Coco would be so proud). The final video that we are going to discuss in this blog post, is Natasha’s ‘Back To School Style + What’s In My Backpack’ video which was uploaded on August 29th, 2014 (Back To School Style + What’s In My Backpack). I really thought that this video was perfect to showcase because back to school time is now upon us. I absolutely LOVED the outfits that Natasha showcased because they’re cute, stylish, perfect for a wide range of styles, and school/parent approved (got to keep those ATMs…I mean parents happy…just kidding, we love them). I also really loved how Natasha was able to show how back to school style can also extend to school supplies. She was able to show pieces that were both efficient and cute. You gotta love a girl who’s so stylish that she makes you want to even copy her school supplies style (and trust me you will want to).
Didn’t I say see was amazing? As I’m sure you can already tell, Natasha is on her way to become a top YouTuber. I think that what really sets Natasha apart from all of the other beauty/fashion gurus on YouTube, is the fact that she is not only knowledgeable about both topics, but she also has an incredible level of comfort in front of the camera. She also has the ability to quickly gain an audience, in fact in only a month on YouTube (as of September 10th, 2014); she already has 2,436 subscribers, and 23,957 total channel views. She also has over 72,000 followers on Instagram (which achieved in about 7 or 8 months), and 1,960 Twitter followers (which she accumulated in about 1 month). I find this truly amazing, especially seeing as some people can find it so hard to even reach this number in their lifetimes. If I’m honest, I thought the only way you could increase your Instagram followers was through a service similar to what Nitreo, (https://nitreo.com) can offer. Or so this is what my friend tells me. I’ve never tried it. This achievement just goes to show that you can reach thousands of followers on your own, but there is no harm in getting additional help along the way. So as you can see, Natasha is quickly becoming the internet’s biggest not so secret talent. I am very excited to see where Natasha goes from here. It will be fun to see just how high this young star rises.
Keep in touch with Natasha!

Hello people of the internet!!! I thought that since it’s back to school time, we should dedicate this week’s ‘Monday Memos’ to that time of the year that we all dread. But, instead of listing the many reasons why you don’t want school to start again, we are going to discuss the 5 reasons why you SHOULD be looking forward to school this year. Now I want to tell y’all ahead of time that this blog is meant to be funny, and you should definitely NOT do a lot of the things I will be suggesting. As much as we may not like it, we actually do have to try heard at school, because if you have no education then you won’t have a job, then who is going to buy your pizza and pay for your Netflix subscription. Exactly! Ok, let’s dive into the list.
Let’s face it; there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done right? I mean you have Twitter stalker, Instagram stalking, Facebook stalking, watching YouTube, reading http://celindareyesblog.com/ (hint, hint), eating. So basically since your day is so booked, how are you expected to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep every day. Well let’s use our brain and think about it. Ready? Ok, School is 8 hours; the recommended amount of sleep you’re suppose to get daily is 8 hours…coincidence? I think not! Just make sure that you don’t sleep through lunch, and have someone to warn you when the bell rings.
4) People Watching
We all know that it’s easy to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram stalk someone (and you know you have), but one wrong move and you end up liking a picture or post from months ago (so embarrassing…at least that’s what I’ve heard…ok, moving on). Anyway, people watching is a much safer hobby, because you can admire that special someone from afar, and not be in danger of embarrassing yourself. See everybody wins! And who knows, maybe one day you’ll even talk to them…yeah maybe not, but that works too.
Now these are usually the only classes in school that we can actually stand. Whether you like music, art, gym, or anything in between, electives can usually be a lot of fun. Of course there are those teachers that actually take these classes seriously (c’mon we take Art class to pretend like we’re not in school, not to draw fruit 100 times). Instead of electives, can’t we just have free time to watch YouTube or listen to the radio (btw, I HIGHLY suggest that you check out 103.7 KVIL, they are AMAZING!).
Now y’all know we had to discuss fashion. Honestly how many times have you spent days or even weeks trying to find that perfect 1st day of school (c’mon you know you have…don’t worry we all have). Honestly sometimes the hallways seem more like runways, but if we didn’t take so much time with back to school fashion, then we might actually have to do homework (scary thought right!?!). Luckily school is the perfect place to try out outfit, hair, and makeup looks, so you can perfect them for the days of the week that actually count…the weekends!
No not those friends
Yes you can see your friends during the summer, but with jobs, vacations, “family time” (whether forced or not), and of course your weekly dates with Netflix (Hello seeing Zac Efron and Channing Tatum on demand, yes of course you’re going to make time for that). With so much going on, it’s nice to have 8 hours a day spending time with your friends. I mean classes were intended for texting. Right?
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss BACK TO SCHOOL OUTFITS (yes I know that for some of you, THIS is the only good thing about going back to school)!!! Now as always, I am going to show y’all 3 different looks that should cover a wide range of styles. I am also going to try to edit the looks to comply with most school dress codes, but if your school’s dress codes are more/less strict then you can alter the looks accordingly. Also, remember that fashion is suppose to be fun, so don’t be afraid to combine pieces from each of the look to achieve something that reflects your personality. I didn’t add any accessories or makeup/hairstyle looks for these outfits, but you can add your own style with each of these, In order to make the look feel more you. Ok, now let’s get into the blog!!!
Crochet High-Neck Chiffon Top from Wet Seal:
I really like this top because it’s loose and lightweight, so if the weather is still warm or hot where you live, then this top won’t make you sweat off all your makeup. I also liked the lace high neck on it, because it’s very feminine and cute, but is not revealing (the LAST thing you need is to start off the school year grounded or suspended…you’re welcome!).
Textured Faux Leather Jacket from Forever 21:
I chose this jacket because it’s cute and adds just a touch of edge to this very girly look. I know that a lot of school dress codes don’t allow students to wear tops without sleeves, so you can either add or remove the jacket depending on your school’s dress codes.
Faux Suede Oxfords from Forever 21:
I really loved these shoes for school because their cute, a little preppy, and most importantly COMFOTABLE! Seriously we all know that you often have to sacrifice comfort for style, so this is a fun alternative to heels, wedges, and flats.
Pink High-Waisted Jeggings from The Bethany Mota Collection exclusively at Aéropostale:
Of course we have to have a piece from one of our favorite internet fashion gurus, Bethany Mota! I really love Bethany’s clothing line, because she has a lot of fun pieces that can become staple pieces in your wardrobe. I thought that these jeggings added a cool pop of color to the outfit that will make you feel like it’s still summer, even when you’re trapped in a classroom or lecture hall.
Floral and Faux Leather Backpack from Icing
I really loved this backpack because it’s cute, and is perfect for any season. The faux leather also gives your outfit a “grown up” feel, so you don’t look overly girly or young with a completely floral backpack.
Sweetheart Tube Skater Dress from Wet Seal
I really love this dress because it loose and flowy, which is perfect if it’s still hot where you live. It is also a perfect blend of girly and casual, so it’s perfect to dress up or down.
Plaid Shirt from Forever 21
Now for this look I really wanted to embrace the plaid trend that everyone loves by pairing a plaid shirt over this dress, to give it a very casual vibe. Also, since the dress might not be in accordance to dress code, the plaid shirt covers it up, and makes it dress code perfect.
Marvel Comics Combat Boots from Wet Seal
I completely fell in love with these boots when I saw them, because who doesn’t love the Marvel superheroes. These felt like the perfect touch to make this look a little more quirky and unique (you can also wear black combat boots if you want a more rocker vibe to your outfit).
Mustache with Glasses Backpack from Amazon
Lastly, I really liked this backpack because it’s fun and will definitely make any outfit you pair it with have a very unique feel. What I really love most about this backpack though is that it is so cute and unique that you could even wear it with an outfit outside of the classroom (and c’mon, how cool is that!?!).
Little Mermaid Tank Top from Wet Seal
I just had to include this tank top because it’s the cutest thing ever! I mean who doesn’t love the little mermaid? Anyway, I loved that this top is really colorful and comfortable for those days when you roll out of bed and don’t feel like thinking about your outfit (which if you’re like me, is everyday).
Floral Kimono from Wet Seal
Personally I really love Kimonos because they’re fun, comfortable, trendy, comfortable, have the ability to make any top school appropriate, and oh yeah, comfortable (I know I’ve said that a lot but comfort is a big thing for me).
Straight Regular Blue Jeans from H&M
Now if you’re looking for comfort, what’s better than a classic pair of jeans. This piece is classic, comfortable, and makes any outfit look more put together, os you really don’t have to worry about styling it.
All Black Converse Sneakers from Journey’s
Now here is a piece that takes the classic look and comfort of a sneaker, but makes it a little cooler. I personally love converse sneakers because they are comfortable and add a laid back, classic look to your outfit. I think that wearing sneakers are a great way to go on the first day of school, because you might do a lot of walking to find your classes, and it’s just easier on your feet, and one less thing you have to stress over.
White Polka Dot Jansport Backpack from Target
I love this backpack because it’s fun but not over the top (just in case that’s not your thing). Also, the fact that it’s white allows it to easily match just about any outfit, or if you’re a little more creative, you can customize it with stickers, draw on it, anything you want really (you gotta love a backpack that gives you options).
