Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ blog, we are going to discuss an AMAZING beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru that you all need in your lives. Kenzie Elizabeth (aka PiperLanee, which is her YouTube channel’s name), is a 17 year old rising star who is quickly taking over YouTube. With a fun personality, interesting video, topics, a vast knowledge of a variety of subjects, and a loyal fan base (as of August 8th, 2014 she had 60,862 subscribers and 2,799,929 total channel views. it is easy to predict that Kenzie is on her way to big things in the career of her choosing.
Kenzie uploaded her first YouTube video (a Fall Haul Fall Haul: Steve Madden, Cotton On, Forever 21 & American Eagle! – YouTube) on October 10th, 2012. I thought that the haul was a really cool first video, because it showed that Kenzie likes to explore various fashion styles, and is knowledgeable about fashion. I also liked that the haul included stores that most of her viewers would be able to shop at, which makes Kenzie much more relatable to her viewers. It was also really good that she was clear, and seemed relatively comfortable on screen, which definitely made me want to continue watching her videos. The next video that we are going to discuss, is Kenzie’s ‘First Day of School Hair, Makeup, and Outfit video’ (First Day of School: Hair, Makeup & Outfit | Collab with Beautybabe149 – YouTube), which was uploaded on August 12th, 2013. I chose this video because back to school season is upon us (sad face), so I thought that this video might help you choose your first day of school look. I thought that the makeup look was really cute for school, because it is simple to replicate, natural looking, but also makes you seem as if you put some effort into your appearance (which we all know can be hard to do on school days). I also really loved the hair look, because it was also simple (I like things to be as simple as possible in life), and you can wear this style in numerous ways depending on your outfit. Lastly, I liked the outfit Kenzie picked out because it was cute, trendy, and casual (so you will look like you didn’t try too hard, even though everyone does…oh you know you do!). This video was also a collaboration with Erica (Beautybabe149) who we talked about a few weeks ago (you can check out that blog post here YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog), and is the reason I found Kenzie’s channel, thanks Erica!
Next, we have Kenzie’s ‘Healthy Food’ video which was uploaded on May 1st, 2014 Healthy Food Unboxing + Feed the Hungry | LoveWithFood – YouTube. This video was interesting, because Kenzie discussed a food service that delivers a box of healthy food to your house for $10 a month, and the $10 goes towards giving 1 meal to a hungry child. I thought that it was very sweet that Kenzie promoted a service that allows her viewers to make a difference. The food that was featured in the box also looked really healthy and delicious, so I would suggest that everyone check out this service (link here: Love With Food). I really loved all of Kenzie’s videos, but the last video that we are going to discuss in this blog post is her ‘How To be Positive’ video which was uploaded on July 23rd, 2014 HOW TO BE POSITIVE FT. MOD SUN – YouTube. I thought that this video was really interesting, because positivity is a simple concept in theory, but it can be really difficult to actually do. Kenzie also spoke about a book by a musician named Mod Sun, which is an easy to read inspirational book, full of tips on how to live a life of positivity. Personally I love inspiration/self-help books, so I will definitely be checking this book out. I think that it’s really cool that Kenzie is able to use videos such as this one to show that she is a very knowledgeable, well rounded YouTuber, who has something on her channel for everyone.
Ok, I know what you’re thinking…and no I don’t know how you haven’t already stumbled upon this awesome channel (or if you have, how other people haven’t). But now that you have all seen Kenzie’s videos and think that we can all agree that there are big things on the horizon for her. It is really exciting when you become a fan of a YouTuber right when they are on the brink of greatness, and I definitely think that we are at this point. So please keep watching this video, because I have a feeling that she could definitely become a top YouTuber very soon!
