The first video that we’re going to talk about is Jordan’s ‘David Beckham H&M Inspired Hairstyle – How to style tutorial’, which was uploaded on November 18th, 2013 (you can check out the video below).

Next up we have Jordan’s ‘3 Things To Know About Cologne | Best Mens Fragrance’ video. This is the perfect video to check out now that the holiday season is upon us because it perfectly explains how to find the right cologne for any guy you may be shopping for. Jordan also talks about a very cool subscription service that you should check out if you or someone you know is always on the hunt for a great new fragrance. There were A LOT of incredible videos to choose from so I really had a hard time narrowing down this list. I highly suggest that you watch the other videos on this channel because there is a lot of cool stuff on it. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Jordan’s ‘How To Style Suits | Mens Fall/Winter Fashion 2015’, which was uploaded on November 17th, 2015 (you can check out this video below).This is another perfect holiday themed video, for anyone who is going to any Thanksgiving/Christmas themed events, or if you just want to add a little sophistication to your style. If dressing up isn’t your thing, there is a more casual suit look that is the perfect combination of style and comfort. In this video Jordan also tells us all about a subscription service that allows you to customize your own suit even down to the style of buttons on the jacket. How cool is that!?! This is a must see for all fashion fans out there!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday; we are going to continue our Halloween series by talking about one of the most important parts of Halloween (no not the candy, although that is VERY important), we’re going to talk about Halloween costumes! We’re VERY close to October 31st, so if you don’t already have your Halloween costume ready then these videos will help you out. Most of the videos don’t involve too much extra work, except #1 which involves some sewing. So now let’s get to the costumes! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
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. I really loved this video because it is such a cool and creative video. Most of the costumes are made up of stuff you can either buy or make easily, and there are so many costumes in the video that I’m sure you’ll find something that you’ll fall in love with. Whether you want your costume this year to look cute, unique, or you want to look like your favorite TV/movie/book character or pop culture figure, you’ll find the PERFECT costume for you. Also, the video is EXTREMELY entertaining to watch, so it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss!
2) Next up we have the ‘DIY Last Minute Easy & Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas for Teens’ by Alexa Mae video, which was uploaded on October 16th, 2015. Alexa is a YouTuber that we’ve spoken about before (you can check out that blog post here:YouTube Wednesday: Alexa Mae…the new YouTuber that you will spend your whole spring break obsessing over), and this video just continues to prove what an amazing guru she has become. In this video she shows us how to easily make 3 costumes that will be perfect for anyone who wants a unique/cute look this Halloween. My personal favorite is the popcorn costume, but they’re all AMAZING so definitely check this one out.
1) ‘DIY “THE DRESS”/DRESSGATE HALLOWEEN COSTUME’ by TheSorryGirls, which was uploaded on October 15th, 2015. Ok y’all it’s back, THE DRESS. You know the dress that divided the internet, and haunted our nightmares for weeks, yup that dress. As soon as I saw this video I knew that it had to make the list because this costume is just so amazing. It does require some sewing, but this costume is so worth it. If you want a super unique video that will give your friends a laugh this Halloween then definitely check out this video.
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.
Philippe now has a Facebook set up for his class (which is called Daddy Daughter Hair Factory), and wants to continue to hold classes for any fathers who are interested. His pictures have had a HUGE response on various social media sites, and will definitely continue to amaze us. I think that this is such an important story to share because we live in a world were we always hear about all of the evils of our society. So it’s nice to see a father who is willing to use his time and skills to help other fathers who struggle with trying to be a mother & a father to their children. Hopefully stories like this will remind us that little actions can really change lives.
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an AMAZING new YouTuber that that you will need to subscribe to right now. If you haven’t heard of rising YouTube star LeadingLadyBeauty, aka Jade, then you have to keep reading because you are seriously missing out. Jade’s vibrant and fun personality will entertain you from beginning to end, and her knowledge about all things fashion & beauty related will keep you anxiously awaiting her next video. If you’ve been looking for a new guru to subscribe to, then I highly suggest you check out this channel. Now let’s get to the art you’ve been waiting for, let’s discuss 4 of Jade’s videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The first video that we’re going to discuss is Jade’s ‘Spring Look Book – 2014’ video, which was uploaded on April 13th, 2014. I thought that this was the perfect video to kick things off with because it gives us a glimpse at what Jade’s personal style is like. This video also can give you A LOT of inspiration for cool spring time outfits, that will definitely get you more Instagram likes. This video is very well done, and will definitely give you an idea of what’s to come. Next up we have her ‘Halloween Make Up Tutorial 2014’, which was uploaded on October 19th, 2014 (you can check out the video below).Now once October hits we see A LOT of Halloween makeup tutorials. Even though it’s really fun to play with makeup and hair and recreate our favorite TV/movie/book characters, sometimes we want to create a look that feels like “Halloween”, without fully committing to dressing up. In this video Jade shows us how o create a very cool grunge look, that will help you feel like your participating in Halloween without actually “dressing up”. Definitely a fun alternative if you’re looking for something different this Halloween,
Now let’s move on to Jade’s ‘How To Long Hair Routine’, which was uploaded on July 4th, 2015. This is a video that you’re going to want to add to your hair care playlists right now. One of the bad things about the weather changing, is that we have a larger chance of hair & skin damage, so you have to change up your routine a little to save yourself from weather hazards. I really loved this routine because Jade tells us exactly what we have to do in order to achieve this articular look, so if you want to change up your hair care routine, or you don’t have a routine, then this is the video for you. Ok, the final video that we’re going to talk about is Jade’s ‘Primark Haul Autumn 2015’, which was uploaded on October 4th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). Now y’all know that we have to include a haul, because haul’s are amazing! I thought that this was a good video to end this post with because in the 1st video that we talked about, we got to get a sense of what Jade’s style is, in this video we get to see how her style has evolved. Knowing this is really important, because it will make you feel more connected to Jade, and we all know that we love to feel like our fav YouTubers are our best friends. In this video we continue to see Jade’s natural on-camera talent, and the personality and knowledge about beauty/fashion, that will make you fall in love with her channel all over again. The growth that we see from the 1st video to this video, will definitely leave you excited for what’s to come on this channel.

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an AMAZING YouTuber that you need to be subscribed to right now! We all love YouTube for various reasons. Maybe you like cool brauty or fashion gurus who know all about the latest styles and trends. Maybe you like checking our lifestyle channels where you can get a mix of everything. Well Victoria aka Inthefrow (which stands for In the front row), has you covered in all three areas. She started off as a beauty, fashion, lifestyle blogger, but has quickly risen to YouTube stardom. So now let’s discuss why you’re about to become so addicted to this channel. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
The first video that we’re going to talk about is Inthefrow’s ‘Get Ready With Me Every Day Makeup’ video which was uploaded on October 28th, 2013. This is a really good introduction to Victoria’s channel, because you get a great sense of her personality and style. In this video Victoria goes through the routine in an easy step by step process so we can all easily create her look. You gotta love a YouTube who proves that they know their craft. The next video that we’re going to talk about is Victoria’s ‘How to: Pink Hair and Hair Extensions’ video, which was uploaded on March 23rd, 2014 (you can check out the video below). This is a really cool video that is perfect for anyone who wants to switch up their hair color. If you’ve ever wanted to try pink hair, or hair extensions (because you learn about those in this video too) then you gotta check this out. This is a really unique video that shows that Victoria is a not only a knowledgeable YouTuber, but that her channel is the place to go for interesting videos.
The next video that we’re going to talk about is Victoria’s ‘Tiger Halloween Makeup Tutorial’, which was uploaded on October 28th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). Let me start off by saying that this is one of the coolest makeup videos that you’ll ever see! In this video, Victoria gives us a step by step tutorial so you can perfectly recreate this amazing tiger look. There are a lot of steps involved so I would practice this before Halloween so you can impress your friends (and everyone on Instagram) with how awesome you look. The final video that we’re going to talk about is Victoria’s ‘Smart Workwear Lookbook ad’ video, which was uploaded on September 16th, 2015. This video really shows how far Victoria’s channel has grown, and how her style has perfected over the years. If you want to look cute at work then you really need to check this video out.

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are jumping into fall fashion. This week is the official kickoff for the fall season, so that means that it’s time to bring back all of those fall clothes that we wait all year to wear. This time around I decided to make three categories for the looks. The categories are a girly look, a casual look, and a mixed bag look (which is a combination of the previous two looks with a few other style thrown in). Some of the looks have staple pieces that you can reuse so that means you save money and can buy more clothes (yay!!!). Please let me know what you think, and if I miss any awesome pieces then let me know in the comments below. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
Tokyo Darling Sheer Oversized Dolman Sweater from Aeropostale:
Now I know in a lot of places it may till be too hot to wear a sweater, but this sweater is sheer so it’s more lightweight, and it’s easy to transition into winter so I think it’s a good investment piece. Also, the color is a little more lively then the typical fall colors that we see, but it’s not a bright hue so it feels like a fall color.
One of the great things about fall is that it can start to get a little cold, but it’s still warm enough to wear summer/spring pieces. It can be a lot of fun to play with accessories and transition these pieces into looks you can wear in the fall. I like this skirt because it’s an easy color and pattern to accessories because it’s not to bright or busy.
Speaking of accessories, I absolutely fell in love with these socks because their comfy, warm, and the little bow on the top is too adorable for words. These socks are perfect to warm up any skirt or dress, and definitely make you feel like fall is in the air.
Tall Lace-Up Combat Boots from Wet Seal:
Ok now we al know that fall is the time where we bring back some of our favorite thing like: Pumpkin Spice Lattes, holidays were we eat way more food than we’ll admit, and tall combat boots! These boots are not only cute, but they will warm up any dress/skirt, and are in a color that I neutral enough, that you can practically wear it with anything.
Chain Event Crossbody Bag from Wet Seal:
I really like this bag because it’s very simple but not boring. White is a great color to add a little something special to any outfit. A crossbody is a really great way to go with a bag, because you don’t have to worry about the bag bothering you as you walk or go through your day so you gotta love accessorizes that cooperate with us.
If you want to look cute but not have to actually try, then a statement tee is perfect because the catchy saying on the shirt can serve as its’ own accessory. Personally I love long sleeved tees for the fall because if it’s hot you can roll your sleeves up to cool down, and if it’s cold then you can leave your sleeves down to warm up (it’s a win for everyone).
Refuge Hi-Waist Super Skinny Colored Jeans from Charlotte Russe:
Ok let’s admit it, skinny jeans are a fall staple, and the perfect way to wear jeans that are comfortable (at least as comfortable as you can be in skinny jeans) while still looking like you didn’t grab the first thing you saw in your closet. I am so in love with these wine colored jeans because the color is beautiful for fall, and colored skinny jeans always add some extra flair to an outfit.
Tribal Print Tassel Tote Bag from Forever 21
Ok now I know that tribal print is usually more of a summer thing, but it’s a piece that most people probably already own, and a bag like this should go with a lot of different looks so it’s easy to accessorize. Bonus points, totes can usually carry a lot of stuff, so if you’re always on the go then you can carry all of life’s necessities with you (yesssss!).
Knit Cuff Faux Leather Combat Boots from Wet Seal:
Ok now I will admit that I’m really obsessed with boots so that’s why there are so many in this lookbook. Now it might still be a little to warm to wear these in a lot of places, but there will be perfect later in the fall/winter season so they’re a good investment (and the faux fur inside means that they will feel AMAZING on your feet!
Mixed Bag Look:
Tokyo Darling Long Sleeve Checkered Woven Tunic from Aeropostale:
With this look, I wanted to find pieces that you could use in multiple ways and a plaid shirt is perfect for that. You can dress it up for a more preppy or girly look, or you can dress it down for a grunge inspired look. This type of shirt can also be used all year so it can easily become a staple piece.
Another staple piece that EVERYONE has are ripped jeans. This isn’t a piece that you can really dress up, but you can either use them to go for a super grunge look, or a more casual look which lets your jeans take center stage without you having to really try. I really like these particular jeans because the splatter on the denim makes the jeans look really cool (just a little side note).
Faux Suede Lace-Up Booties from Wet Seal:
I know I know, none of you are surprised that there are more boots in this lookbook but in my defense…boots are really cute (yeah I know it’s not a great defense). What I like about these particular boots is that they can be used all year long, and they are an easy way to dress up any outfit. Whether you’re wearing a dress or a t-shirt and jeans, these boots ill work their magic.
Oversized Studded Tote Bag from Charlotte Russe:
Now this is a pretty standard type of bag, the color is very neutral so it can be your go to bag, and you can keep everything you need in it. I love the studs because they add just a little edge to a casual outfit, without being to overpowering.

The first video that we’re going to talk about, is Bryn’s ‘Outfits of the Week! 11/12-11/16’ video, which was uploaded on November 17th, 2012. I thought that this was a really good video to start things off with, because in this video we really get a good idea of what Bryn’s personal style consists of. I like that all of the outfits have pieces that we all either have in our closets, or are easy to find at most stores. Even though in most places it may not be cold enough yet for all of these looks, you can rework some of the outfits, and get A LOT of style inspiration from this video. The next video that we’re going to talk about is the ‘How I Style: Knee High Socks’ video, which was uploaded on March 1st, 2013 (you can check out this video below). This is such a cool video, that I found entertaining and really unique. If you love knee high socks or you’ve wanted to try this look out, then this is the video for you. Personally I like it when YouTubers take a chance and make videos that put their individuality on display, because it makes you a lot more interested in their channel.
Next up we’re going to talk about the ‘DIY: Last Minute Halloween Costumes!’ video, which was uploaded on October 25th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). With Halloween right around the corner this is a great video to check out if you want a quick, easy costume. In this video, Bryn shows you three costumes that are perfect whether you want a costume that will literally take 5 minutes to make, or something a little cooler that is still easy to do (and don’t worry if you’re not good with makeup because Bryn explains everything step by step. Ok, the final video that we’re going to talk about is the ‘How To: Get Frizz-Free Hair!’ video which was uploaded on May 11th, 2015. In this video Bryn gives great hair care tips such as which shampoos/conditioners & brushes will help reduce frizz, and how often you should wash your hair. If you want to learn some tricks & tips to help improve your hair, or if you don’t currently have a hair care routine then you gotta check out this video.

If you have a more Boho style, but don’t know how to really translate this into the winter season then this is the video for you. In this video we’re really able to get a good sense of the unique fashion that we’ll see from Diana on this channel, so it’s a great video to begin at. Next up we have the ‘Easy Dreamcatcher DIY’ video, which was uploaded on April 26th, 2015 (which you can check out below). I thought that this was such a cool video, because it’s a DIY, but it’s not something that you might typically find on YouTube. It’s really interesting to see YouTubers think outside the box and try to give us unique content. These types of videos definitely keep you on your toes, and will make you become really excited about what this channel has in store for us in the future.

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.
