Monday Memos: RawSpiceBar…the subscription box service that you NEED this year!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s `Monday Memos’ we’re going to discuss an AMAZING fullsizerendersubscription box that y`all should all check out this holiday season! If you like trying exotic new dishes (or just want to impress your friends by how fancy you are) then the RawSpiceBar subscription service is for you. As you know, I never promote any band, artist, book, or product that I do not 100% believe in. I tried RawSpiceBar for the 1st time last year & I absolutely loved their service. Because of this experience I`m so happy to say that I have once again partnered with RawSpiceBar to bring you guys all the information you need to spice up your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any other special event you have planned for this holiday season. Now let’s get to the review! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

I received the October kit which had an Oktoberfest themes inspired by German spices! This kit included the following spices & accompanying recipes: Horseradish & Mustard Seed (which included a recipe for Horseradish & Mustard Cabbage), Caraway, Fennel & Anise Bread (which included a recipe for Caraway Cheese Soft Pretzels), and lastly Schnitzel Spices (which included a recipe for German Chicken Schnitzel). The Horseradish & Mustard Seed spice had a very earthy, fresh taste that really gave the Horseradish & Mustard Seed Cabbage a unique taste that made me want to add it as a usual dinner item. The Caraway, Fennel & img_8158Anise Bread was definitely my favorite of the spices because the Caraway Cheese Soft Pretzels were super delicious. If you want mall level pretzels then you have to give this recipe a try. Lastly (but DEFINITELY not least) we have the Schnitzel Spices for the super yummy German Chicken Schnitzel. This dish was a little spicy, but the crunchy exterior and juicy interior really made the dish standout among common chicken dishes.

YouTube Wednesday: Kurt Hugo Schneider…the producer/director behind all your favorite YouTube musicians

Kurt Hugo Schneider

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we are going to talk about director/music producer Kurt Hugo Schneider! Kurt is one of the AMAZING YouTube producers that has worked with so many of our fav musicians (both YouTubers and mainstream musicians). I guarantee that you’re VERY familiar with Kurt already, but just in case you’re new to his awesomeness, Ready? Ok let’s go!

 

Kurt began his online career in 2008, when he and his friend Sam Tsui released a cover of ‘Can I Have This Dance’ from the movie ‘High School Musical 3’ (this is the first video that is on their YouTube channel as of 3/31/2015). In this video, Kurt accompanies Sam on the piano, and also added cool effects on the video that make it look like multiple copies of Sam are singing at the same time. Kurt continued to post videos with Sam, with other people, and also solo, before he posted a cover that would begin to change his channel. On July 24th, 2009 Kurt uploaded a new cover with Sam Tsui, which was an a cappella Michael Jackson Medley, which features Kurt beatboxing (I included the video below so y’all can check it out). This video got a lot of media attention for Kurt & Sam, and is still one of their most popular videos with over 33 million total views. In 2009 & 2010, Kurt’s channel started growing so much that he & Sam were featured on: The Bonnie Hunt Show, Oprah, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Since then Kurt’s channel has definitely not slowed down, & he has worked with INCREDIBLE artists such as: Jason Derulo, Victoria Justice, Max Schneider (who we have already talked about, click here to read about him: ‘YouTube Wednesday’: Max Schneider, Hollywood’s longest kept secret | celindareyesblog), Alyson Stoner, Keke Palmer, Hunter Hayes, Jason Mraz, and so many more. Now that we know how Kurt built such an awesome channel, let’s move on to some of the bigger projects he has released.

 

Now let’s talk about some of the other amazing projects Kurt has been a part of (and remember guys that I’m just giving you a quick little highlight reel because honestly we could be here for days talking about why Kurt is so awesome). Kurt (along with Max Schneider) co-wrote the song ‘Standing In China’, which is on pop singer Cody Simpson’s album ‘Paradise’ (which was released in 2012). Another really awesome collaboration that Kurt did was a ‘Holiday Medley’ with Victoria Justice & Max Schneider which was uploaded on December 14th, 2012. This cool mash-up of popular Christmas songs features multiple videos that were played on multiple Sprint phones, that give the illusion that the vocalists in the videos are jumping from one phone to another phone (sorta hard to explain, but check out the video below to check out the greatness! In 2013, Kurt teamed up with Coca-Cola to create music videos (along with some really talented vocalists) where Kurt covered ‘Feel So Close’ by Calvin Harris & ‘Little Talks’ by Of Monsters and Men (this is the only cover that feature an instrument because the other artist in the video is a cellist) for their ‘The Sounds of AHH’ campaign. In the covers, Kurt is shown making the track playing only Coca-Cola bottles, glasses and cans. Like I said, this is only a small sample of the cool videos you’ll find on Kurt’s channel, so definitely add him to your “must watch” list!

YouTube Wednesday: Madison Martine…YouTube’s latest not so secret rising star

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss a new collab channel on YouTube that you ALL need to subscribe to. This new channel (called Behind The Beauty, here’s a link to the channel ), is made up of 5 of the fastest rising YouTube stars who will give you lots of fun tips about how to look your best, feel your best, and have a lot of fun. We’ve already discussed two of the YouTubers on this channel (Beautybabe149, here’s the link: YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog and Kenzie Elizabeth here’s the link YouTube Wednesday: Kenzie Elizabeth…the guru who will help you feel beautiful inside and out | celindareyesblog). Since this AMAZING channel was launched last month (here’s a link to the channel’s trailer Behind the Beauty – YouTube), I thought that it would be fun to profile the other two amazing beauty gurus on this channel. So, for the next few YouTube Wednesdays, we are going to talk about each of these YouTubers so y’all can get a better idea of how awesome they are separately, and see exactly why ‘Behind The Beauty’ will soon become your fav channel. First up, we are going to discuss Madison Martine.

 

Madison Martine is an 18 year old actress, model, fashion blogger, and fashion/beauty/lifestyle guru. She began her blog at the age of 16, and in doing so was able to express herself through her love of fashion. Along with a very successful and popular blog site, Madison decided to further her talents as an entertainer by starting a YouTube channel. She uploaded her first video (a 20 Facts About Me video 20 Facts About Me – YouTube), on March 14th, 2013. I really loved this video because it tells the viewers a lot of fun facts about Madison, and also shows off her fun, laid-back personality. I would highly suggest checking out this video if you want to find out which celebrity Madison is obsessed with, what happened the first time she tried to drive, and what show caused her to be “unable to function” after it ended. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Madison’s ‘Summer Clothing Haul’ Summer Clothing Haul! H&M, Forever 21, & More! – YouTube, which was uploaded on July 8th, 2013. Now you guys know that I am OBESSED with hauls, so I am really excited to share this video with y’all. I really LOVED that Madison didn’t just show the clothes she bought, but also explained how she might style certain items. I also really liked that the clothes she had in the video were stylish, comfortable, but also something that viewers can go out and buy. I think that it’s really important for fashion/beauty gurus to show pieces in their videos that their viewers can have access to, and then add their own individual spin on. The next video that we are going to discuss is Madison’s ‘My Fall Makeup Routine’ video My Fall Makeup Routine! – YouTube, which was uploaded on October 12th, 2013. Even though this video was made for last fall, I thought that it would be one of the perfect videos to talk about with y’all since fall is here once again. I am a HUGE fan of wearing a natural makeup look as you “everyday makeup look”, because it’s simple to do if you have a busy schedule (or you’re just lazy like me because you stay up to late every night watching YouTube videos…anyways…moving on). I also loved that Madison showed her audience how to complete the look step by step, and made the tutorial very user friendly. I am honestly REALLY excited to try out this look, and I know all of you will too after seeing this video. The last video we are going to discuss is Madison’s ‘Healthy Back To School Lunch Ideas’ video which was uploaded on August 17th, 2014. I choose this video because I thought that it would be really helpful for everyone who goes to school and/or works, but also wants to stay healthy (or at least feel like you’re balancing out the pizza you ate last night while watching ‘The Voice’…its ok #nojudgment). I really loved the lunch options that Madison presented, because they were all lunches that I haven’t seen before in other videos, and they actually looked really delicious. I also appreciated that there were dessert options (because honestly who doesn’t love dessert!?!).  I think that if you’re new to healthy eating, or just want to give it a try, then this video is definitely a good place to start. I give this video 5 smiley faces!

 

See told y’all she was an AWESOME YouTuber. Ok Ok, I know that after hearing about all of these awesome videos, you want to go check them out (and you really should) but while you do that, please remember to follow Madison on all of her social media sites (which will be below). Also please subscribe and spread the word about this AMAZING channel (and if you want to share the link to this post I won’t be mad at you). Make sure you check Monday-Friday for new videos on ‘Behind The Beauty’, and also check out Madison’s main channel for new videos.

 

Keep up with everything Madison is up to!!!
