Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an amazing beauty/fashion/life guru named Natalie Barbu. Natalie is a recent college graduate who is now beginning her career as an Industrial Engineer. The reason why I decided to focus on Natalie’s channel today is not only due to her vast knowledge on beauty & fashion, but also because of how interesting & unique her channel is. Trust me as soon as you watch one of Natalie’s video you’ll be so immersed that you’ll instantly want to subscribe (which you should do because why miss out right? Right!). So now let’s get to the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The 1st video we’re going to talk about is Natalie’s ‘My First Dorm Room Tour!’, which was uploaded on December 4, 2014 (you can check out the video below). I know, I know it’s summer & nobody wants to think about school, but it will be time to go back before we know it & you gotta be ready (stop booing!). Now what’s one of the most important things about starting college? You got it, shopping! If you’re gonna live in a dorm/apartment or just want to update your room then this video will offer you some GREAT inspiration about cool things you can buy/make in order to make your space uniquely you. So now that we’ve covered the future, let’s talk about a video that will help you right now! Let’s discuss Natalie’s ‘Healthy Summer Snacks | Quick And Easy’ video, which was uploaded on July 15, 2015. Now if you made a New Year Resolution to eat healthier but haven’t started (so basically all of us), this is a MUST SEE for you! In this video Natalie shows how to make easy, inexpensive snacks that everyone can enjoy all summer long. Also, as an added bonus you can also transition these snacks into your fall routine as a good after school snack (so you can be as lazy as you want & only memorize a few recipes while being able to snack healthily. Everyone wins!).
Now we’re going to look at Natalie’s ‘DAD TAKES OVER MY TINDER ACCOUNT Inspired by Why Him?’ video, which was uploaded on April 7th, 2017. In this video we definitely get to see more of Natalie’s fun, bubbly personality, as well as how funny her dad is. It’s hilarious to see Natalie’s dad swipe through her Tinder profile, and to hear his reasons why certain guys don’t make the cut. It’s a really fun video that we can definitely all relate to. Lastly we have her ‘BEING A GIRL IN ENGINEERING + Why More Girls Need to go into STEM’ video, which was uploaded on June 26th, 2018 (you can check out the video below). This is a very interesting video in which Natalie tells us about her experiences as a women pursuing a career as an engineer. She also goes into detail about the doubts & offensive questions she’s encounter while pursing her degree. It’s amazing to see YouTubers who are not only knowledgeable about the skills they showcase on their channels, but also take the time to talk about their own experiences/hardships with their viewers.

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about the official color (or should I say colors) of 2016. If you love pink and blue then get ready to be very happy because the official colors of 2016 are Rose Quartz (which is a hue of pink), and Serenity (which is a blue). According to the Pantone website, this is the 1st time that 2 colors have been choose as the official color of the year. So if you want to learn why these really cute colors were chosen then keep reading. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
According to the Pantone website, “Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace”. The website goes on to describe the colors as the following: “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” I’m really excited to see what beauty and fashion trends will be inspired by these colors! Pantone’s website also says that it chose these colors in order to show how fashion is blurring gender lines by not stereotyping one color as more appropriate for a specific gender (which basically means blue is no longer “only” for boys, and pink is no longer “only” for girls). I think that this is a very cool idea because the fashion and beauty industry is increasingly becoming more and more diverse so it seems only right that the color(s) of the year reflect that. Needless to say 2016 is off to a great start, and will definitely give us so much to look forward to and even more to put on Instagram and Pinterest. I can’t wait! What do you think people of the internet? Let me know in the comments below!
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an incredible YouTuber who you will soon be addicted to. It can be really hard for a YouTuber to distinguish themselves because of all of the competition from the other great channels on the website. Once you see Keegan’s videos, it’s easy to figure out that she definitely stands out from the crowd. Not only is she knowledgeable about all of the topics that she discusses on her channel, but she’s also very entertaining to watch, has a natural on-camera presence, and she is able to engage her audience from the start of the video to the end. If you’re not already subscribed to her channel then you are definitely missing out. So please read on to discover the YouTuber that all your friends already love. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Keegan’s ‘Sephora and Charlotte Russe’ haul, which was uploaded on June 6th, 2013 (you can check out this video below). This video is the perfect introduction to Keegan’s channel because it shows us that she’s a natural born entertainer who can not only mesmerize her audience, but also leave them wanting to keep coming back to see more. I also love that this video is a haul because we get a glimpse at what Keegan’s personal style is like, which is a great way for her to connect with her audience. Next up we have her ‘First Impression | Nume Octo Wand’ video, which was uploaded on December 26th, 2013. First impression videos are great because we get to see what our fav YouTubers really think about a product without worrying that they’re just trying to get us to buy the product. In this video Keegan shows that she’s really good at reviewing products because she gives a very detailed review that tells us why the product is great, but does so in a way that allows us to figure out if this is the product for us.
Now we’re going to talk about Keegan’s ‘ My Braces Experience | EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Braces’ video, which was uploaded on March 17th, 2014. I think that one of the best things about YouTube is that we really get to know our favorite YouTubers in a way that makes us feel as if they’re our best friends. This video is a perfect example of that, because through this video Keegan is able to connect with all of her viewers who have braces, or will get braces in the near future. This is a MUST SEE video if you fall into either of these categories because Keegan is very detailed when she explains the process of getting braces put on, taken off, and everything in between. The final video that we’re going to discuss today is Keegan’s ‘ iPhone Case Collection 2015’ video, which was uploaded on June 22nd, 2015 (you can check out this video below). Personally I love watching iPhone case collections because you get to see some really cool cases and learn where to get them (gotta have more stuff to add to that letter to Santa). In this video we not only get to see some really cute phone cases (I seriously want all of them), but we once again get a glimpse into what Keegan’s personal style is, and how it has evolved. I really wish that I could have written about all of her videos because they’re all AMAZING, so I would definitely check out this channel if you want to give yourself an early Christmas present.

If you want a channel that will keep you up to date with all the latest fashion/beauty trends, and will show you awesome new workout routines, and keep you seriously entertained for hours then you need to become a fan of Selena Lim (aka WoahItsSelena21). Want to hear more? Then please read on! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Selena’s ‘What’s In My Bag 2014 | College Edition’ video, which was uploaded on November 1st, 2014 (you can check out the video below). This video really gives you a good idea of Selena’s personality and will instantly make you addicted to her channel. It’s definitely a lot of fun to see what our fav YouTubers have in their bags because it can give us advice on good products to buy/carry with us. The next video that we’re going to talk about is Selena’s ‘Fitness Routine 2015’ video, which was uploaded on February 8th, 2015. With all of the food and fun we have during the holiday season, a good workout routine is a must! If you don’t have the time to go to the gym, then this is the video for you. These workouts are effective and can be completed in under 30 minutes so they’re the perfect thing to do between Netflix binges.
Now we’re going to move on to Selena’s ‘American Tries British Candy’ video (which you can check out below). This is a really fun video because it’s interesting to see people react to new things, and there’s candy in the video. After watching this video you’ll definitely want to check out some of the awesome candy they have across the pond. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Selena’s ‘Huge Black Friday Haul 2016’, which was uploaded on November 27th, 2015. Y’all know that I love hauls because you get to see interesting OOTD ideas that you may have never seen before, and you get the thrill of shopping without actually having to spend all of you money (gotta save up that money for Pumpkin Spice everything…priorities people priorities). What’s extra awesome about Black Friday hauls, is that you get a good idea of what stores usually have the best sales, so you can properly plan for next year’s sales. Gotta love an entertaining video that’s also educational (or least that’s the excuse we’ll use to watch it over and over again).

3) The first video that we’re going to talk about is the ’30 Last-minute DIY Halloween Costume Ideas’ by CloeCouture, which was uploaded on October 25th, 2014.

Hello people of the internet!!! We talk about so many amazing YouTubers that are all incredible and unique in their own way. There is one thing that all of these YouTubers have in common, if you like the channel, then you subscribe to it so you don’t miss a thing. Well what if you could subscribe to YouTube? Yup you heard me right! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about YouTube’s recent announcement that they will begin their 1st subscription service on October 28th. This is definitely a very new move for the website, so keep reading to see how this could affect you. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
Ok now that I’ve officially freaked you out, let’s break down the details of this news. At an event in Los Angeles earlier today, YouTube released it’s new subscriptions service called ‘YouTube Red’, which allows subscribers to pay $9.99 a month in exchange for some really cool benefits. These benefits include: the ability to watch unlimited YouTube videos completely ad free, the ability to save videos to watch offline when you don’t have a connection to the internet, the ability to continue watching videos while running other apps, unlimited streaming of Google Play Music, and exclusive content from top YouTube creators that you won’t have access to without this subscription. YouTube has said that you will be able to watch a lot of the same content for free, but you won’t have access to any of the bonuses listed above. Needless to say this is a BIG step for a website that is now a huge part of our everyday lives. So what do y’all think of this change? Will you subscribe to ‘YouTube Red’? One thing is for sure, starting October 28th, the way we watch YouTube will be changed forever. Let me know below what you think, and check out this video from theverge.com that explains all of the new changes in greater detail.
