YouTube Wednesday: Introducing Heylaine…the YouTuber you will be obsessed with this summer

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday we’re going to talk about another INCREDIBLE YouTuber that is quickly on the rise. Elaine (aka Heylaine) is a beauty/fashion/DIY guru who will have you smiling, laughing (and taking notes), as she explains how to get Instagram worthy hair, makeup, and home decor. Y’all definitely NEED to check out her channel now, because you don’t want to be lost when all your friends are addicted to her channel and you’re like “what?” (Btw in only 4 months Elaine has earned 3,829 subscribers, which is beyond amazing). So now let’s get to the videos! Ready? Ok, let’s go!



The first video that we’re going talk about is Elaine’s ‘My Everyday Makeup Routine’, which was uploaded on March 5th, 2015. This is a really great video for anyone who loves makeup because this particular look is easy to manipulate depending on whether you’re going out, hanging with friends, or are on a date with Netflix. You can check out the video below! Next up we have her ‘HUGE Spring Clothing Haul 2015 | F21, Topshop, Brandy Melville & More!’, which was uploaded on March 24th, 2015. Y’all knew that there had to be a haul video because hauls are AMAZING! I think that you can really learn all about a YouTuber’s sense of style busy checking out their hauls, and this makes us feel like they could be our style BFFs. Also, haul videos give you the illusion of shopping without you actually having to spend money so it’s a win for everyone.

 

Now let’s talk about Elaine’s ‘DIY Room Decor for Spring | & Tumblr Inspired!’, which was uploaded on April 30th, 2015. This is a really fun video that will teach you how to make some really cool, inexpensive decor pieces that will help you makeover any space for the spring. These pieces are all easy to make, very customizable so you can add your own unique style to each project. Another great thing about this video? You can save money by creating the pieces yourself, and spend that money on some of the cute stuff you saw in Elaine’s haul video (yay!). Lastly we’re going to talk about Elaine’s ‘How Girls Get Ready in the Morning | Morning Routine!’ video, which was uploaded on May 17th, 2015. This is a really funny video that really allows us to see Elaine’s bubbly, fun personality, and her natural on camera charisma. You will definitely relate to this video (because #TheStruggleIsReal…seriously it is), and will find yourself watching it again and again. This video will not only make you become an even bigger fan of Elaine, but will also leave you anxiously awaiting her next video (check out the video below to see what I mean).

YouTube Wednesday: Clarissa May…the rising YouTube star that you will spend all your time obsessing over

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we’re going to look at a rising YouTube star that you’ll clarissa mayinstantly want to subscribe to. Clarissa May is a 15 year old beauty/fashion/DIY guru and dancer. Along with her beauty channel, she also has a dance channel called Live On Pointe, where she posts Q&As, tutorials, demonstrations, and a lots of other cool things related to dance (definitely check this channel out too). What I like most about Clarissa’s beauty/fashion channel, is that she really shows off her creativity with her channel, and constantly pushes the quality of her videos to higher and higher limits. So…now let’s get to the videos! Ready? Let’s go!!!


The first video we’re going to talk about is Clarissa’s ‘Get Ready With Me Photoshoot’, video which was uploaded on August 30th, 2014. I love how Clarissa explains her process step by step so it’s easy to replicate this look. This is a really good video to check out if you want to find a new look for any upcoming events such as graduation, or a party. Ok, the next video we’re going to talk about is Clarissa’s ‘DIY Starbucks Frappuccino Costume’, which was uploaded on October 26th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). I think y’all will really LOVE this video because it’s really creative and inexpensive to make. Another good thing about this costume idea is you can customize it to fit your individual style, and you can look cute for any selfies that the day brings (and if you take a selfie holding a Starbucks drink that’s the same as your costume then you can bring a new meaning to the #twinning!).

The next video we’re going to discuss is Clarissa’s ‘Silver Smokey Eye for Beginners’, which was uploaded on February 19th, 2015. Now if you’re like A LOT of us, we’ll, smokey eyes lead to issues. I mean what’s worse than spending all these time struggling to make your eyes look awesome and then someone asks “why do you have two black eyes” (#epicfail). The final video that we’re going to talk about is the Clarissa’s ‘Pinterest in Real Life’, which was uploaded on May 1st, 2015 (you can check out the video below). I thought that this was a fun change from the usual videos we discuss because it’s a really funny, comedic video. The video explains what happens sometimes, when we try and fail to mimic stuff we see on Pinterest. It’s a really funny video that’s honestly not only hilarious, but so relatable.

YouTube Wednesday: Elyar Fox…the artist that will keep you glued to YouTube all year

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we are going to talk about an INCREDIBLE YouTube musicianelyar fox 2 that you may or may not already be obsessed with. Trust me if you’ve never heard of Elyar Fox, then you need to continue reading this post. This 19 year old singer/songwriter from London is quickly taking over the music industry and the hearts of his fans one click at a time. Excited to hear more? Are you sure that you’re ready? Ok, then let’s go!



The first song that we’re going to talk about is Elyar’s ‘Treasure/When I Was Your Man’ by Bruno Mars video, which was uploaded on Mach 27th, 2013. I thought that this was a really cool Bruno Mars themed mash-up, which took two very different songs and perfectly matched them up. This video really showed off what a great musician Elyar’s is, and will have you hooked from the first note to the last. Next up we have his ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit cover, which was uploaded on April 7th, 2014 (you can’t check out the video below). I chose to include this video because it showed Elyar performing live. In this video we really get a look into Elyar’s performance style. Although we already knew that Elyar was a talents vocalist/musician, we really get to see how he is able to take command on stage and leave his audience spellbound. This video definitely shows that his performance skills are above and beyond that of a new artist. Just imagine how amazing he’ll be in a few years?

Now we’ll look at Elyar’s rendition of ‘Somebody To You’ by The Vamps feat. Demi Lovato, which was uploaded on June 4th, 2014. It was really cool to see Elyar take on a really fun, energetic song, because we really got to see his personality shine through. This cover really shows that Elyar is able to take on a just about any type of song, and will definitely get you excited to hear more of his covers. It’s cool to see your fav YouTubers really have fun with what they do, and we can certainly see that Elyar is having a lot of fun on this video which only makes us love him even more. Finally we’ll look at Elyar’s cover of ‘See You Again’ by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth, which was uploaded on April 19th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). This is definitely a tough song to cover because you not only have to sing the song correctly, but you also have to be able to show the deep emotions behind the lyrics. As everyone knows, this song was originally written as a tribute to ‘Fast and The Furious’ alum Paul Walker who sadly passed away in 2013. Because of this connection, this is a song that has to be sung with a lot of heartfelt emotion in order to maintain the magic of the original version. Elyar does an incredible job of capturing the emotions behind this song, and will definitely make you cry after you hear it.

YouTube Wednesday: Brizzy Voices…the YouTuber who proves that nostalgia never sounded so good

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an awesome YouTuberbrizzy voices 2 who you just gotta check out! If you love cartoons (and I mean who doesn’t), then you’re gonna become addicted to Brizzy Voices’ amazing impressions. Brizzy (who’s real name is Anna Brisbin according to IMDB) is an extremely skilled voice actress who seems to be able to mimic the voice of just about any character you can think of. I thought that this would be a really fun YouTuber to discuss because Brizzy is not only insanely talented, but also takes the time to show her fun, bubbly personality through her videos. So if you’re already a fan of Brizzy then you know what’s coming, and if you’ve never heard of her then prepare to be amazed. Ready? Let’s go!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Brizzy’s ‘Voice ALL the original Pokémon!!’ video, which was uploaded on June 26th, 2012 (you can check out the video below). Now if you’ve ever seen Pokémon, then you know that there are a wide variety of voices on the show, that are all very unique. The fact that nearly every 150 voices will really leave you in awe (side note remember when there were only 150 Pokémon instead of 500 thousand billion? Old school stuff right there). I think that this was an equally awesome and courageous video to upload because if you do it right (which Brizzy did) then you will gain A LOT of fans and positive exposure, but if it comes out wrong then you’ll get endlessly trolled on the Internet. This is a video you’ll gonna want to replay over and over. The next video that we’re going to discuss is ‘Disney Princess Impressions’ video, which was uploaded on September 20th, 2012. This is another video that takes a large group of characters with really distinct voices and puts them together in a very cool, very well done video. I liked that Brizzy not only showed that she can imitate lines of dialog from these movies, but also some lines from the popular songs. She is able to match every line very well, and if you close your eyes while listening, you feel like you’re listening to the original actress. I give this video 5 Mickeys (because you know the whole Disney thing….yeah).

Ok this next video is going to be a big kick in the nostalgia, so prepare. We’re going to talk about Brizzy’s ‘Tara Strong Tribute Impressions’ video, which was as uploaded on February 20th, 2015. Confused? Ok, well you may or may not exactly know who Tara Strong is, but I GUAREENTEE that if you were a kid (or a kid at heart) in the 90s and well even now, then you know Tara Strong’s work. With a wide variety of characters such as: Dill Pickles from the ‘Rugrats’, Bubbles from ‘The Powerpuff Girls’, Melody from ‘The Little Mermaid 2’, Timmy Turner & Baby Poof from ‘The Fairly Odd Parents’, Raven from ‘Teen Titans’, and well so many that we would need a few more posts in order to go through them all. Needless to say Tara Strong is a voice acting legend, and it was so cool to see Brizzy do such an amazing tribute to her. As always the voices were perfectly executed, and just further shows how insanely talented Brizzy is. Ok, the final video that we’re going to talk about is Brizzy’s ‘Cartoon Mom Impressions’ video, which was uploaded on May 8th, 2015 (which you can check out below). Although all of Brizzy’s videos are awesome, this is definitely one of her top videos, because mom voices aren’t the easiest for most people to do. Once you really get into the whole video, you see just how difficult and diverse our favorite TV mom voices are, because of the various pitches, accents, and even word phrasing that their voices have. However, Brizzy doesn’t let us down, and continues to prove that not only will she continue to release that we love, but she will also work very meticulously to make videos that are more and more awesome. Gotta love YouTubers who continue to push their boundaries.

YouTube Wednesday: MissInnerBeauty2…the beauty guru you will be addicted to this Spring

 

missinnerbeauty2Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss another AMAZING YouTuber that y’all will soon have to subscribe to!Who are we talking about? I’m glad you asked! If you haven’t heard of Hannah aka MissInnerBeauty2 then y’all need to jump on the bandwagon. Trust me you’ll love her! Hannah’s beauty/fashion/fitness tips & tricks will help you feel beautiful from the inside out by showing you that confidence is always in style. So now let’s move on to the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!


The first video that we’re going to talk about is Hannah’s ‘My Top 10 Spring Essentials’ video, which was uploaded on May 13th, 2013. Personally I love looking at a YouTuber’s first video because it not only shows how they have grown as YouTubers, but also as people. I thought that this was an AWESOME debut video because it showed that Hannah is knowledgeable about what she’s talking about, and also has a fun personality that jumps off the screen. This is also the perfect video for anyone who is new to the beauty world. Ok, the next video that we’re going to talk about is Hannah’s ‘Naked Pallets Comparison: 1,2,3 and Basics! Urban Decay’ video, which was uploaded on January 7th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). I thought that this was such a great at video for Hannah’s viewers, and it just really impressed me. If you’ve wanted to buy any of these pallets, but haven’t because you couldn’t decide which one you wanted and/or you didn’t want to spend the money to buy more than one of the pallets, then this is the video for you. Once again Hannah shows that she is a natural on camera, and really knows what her audience wants to see.

 

Next up we have another AMAZING Hannah video! This is a ‘Blair Waldorf Back To School Makeup + Hair Gossip Girl’ video, which was uploaded on July 15th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). Now I think that we can all admit that the characters on ‘Gossip Girl’ had the best style ever and Blair is definitely a HUGE fan favorite because of this very reason. Blair had the perfect mix of preppy and girly, and just seemed so perfectly put together, that we couldn’t help but wish we could all look that awesome every day. Hannah is able to perfectly replicate this character’s signature fashion and beauty style, which shows us that Hannah’s videos will just continue to amaze us. Now even though we could sit here all day and talk about all of Hannah’s videos (which trust me I would LOVE to do), I can’t keep y’all here all day, so let’s talk about our final Hannah video. Ok, the last video that we’re going to talk about is Hannah’s ‘FabFitFun First Impressions Unboxing’, video which was uploaded on April 11th, 2015. I thought that this was another really cool video, because this service delivers a box every season with beauty products/health products/and exercise products. I hadn’t heard of this specific service before so I thought that the company had a really interesting concept. I really loved how Hannah seemed very honest about her review of what was in the box, which definitely makes us love her even more. In this video Hannah shows that she is very comfortable in front of the camera, and is able to make you feel like you’re talking to one of your friends, which is definitely the sign of a YouTube star in the making.

YouTube Wednesday: SouthernBelle606…the channel that’s all about beauty, fashion, and fun

SouthernBelle606Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about your soon to be newest YouTube obsession, SouthernBelle606 (aka Meredith), a 17 year old beauty/fashion guru from Alabama. Her fun, outgoing personality will make you completely addicted to her videos, and you can always count on her to have the best fashion/beauty tips & tricks. So if you’re ready to learn about another YouTuber that you will spend all your free time watching, let’s jump into the blog post!


The first video that we’re going to talk about is Meredith’s ‘Get Ready with Me: A Day of Summer Vacation + My First Video’, which was uploaded on June 13th, 2013. I thought that this was such a fun video to talk about because it really shows just how much Meredith has grown as an entertainer. In this first video Meredith is a little shy, but we still get glimpses of the fun personality that keeps her viewers coming back. This video also shows that Meredith is very knowledgeable about beauty & fashion, which also makes you want to continue to watch her future videos. The next video that we’re going to watch is Meredith’s ‘Transitions Your Outfits: Winter to spring’ video, which was uploaded on March 8th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). This is a really awesome video to check out because even though we are in spring, it can still get a little chilly in some areas. There were so many cute outfit ideas in this video that can work for school or hanging out with friends/family.

 

 

The next video we’re going to talk about is Meredith’s ‘My Everyday 5-Minute Curls’ video, which was uploaded on January 9th, 2015. I just HAD to share this video with y’all because her curling method is so cool and easy to replicate. For those of us who are lazy (me!), and/or like to get that extra few minutes of sleep (also me!), this video shows you how to get cute curls quickly. Definitely a method you will want to add in your morning routine! The final video that we’re going to talk about is Meredith’s ‘Huge Spring Haul: BeautyCon, Lilly, F21, and More!’ video, which was uploaded on March 23rd, 2015 (you can check out this video below). Y’all know that we all love haul videos because you get the thrill of shopping for cute stuff without actually having to spend money (so everybody wins!). Once you watch this video you’ll fall even more in love with Meredith’s AMAZING style. Also, her bubbly, relatable personality will keep you anxiously waiting for her next video.

YouTube Wednesday: Alexa Mae…the new YouTuber that you will spend your whole spring break obsessing over

Hello people of the internet! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss Alexa Mae, an AMAZING 18 year old beauty, fashion, lifestyle guru from Wisconsin that you NEED to check out. If you aren’t already subscribed to Alexa’s channel, then you definitely need to ASAP because she is a YouTube star on the rise that shows no signs of slowing down. In just about 3 1/2 months (as of March 11th, 2015), she had already gained 12,885 subscribers, and 135,437 total channel views. Honestly how insane is that? If you’re still not convinced that you should subscribe (like right this very second), then check out a few of Alexa’s videos below and prepare to become her #1 fan.

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Alexa’s ‘My Night Routine Holiday Edition!’ video, which was uploaded on November 25th, 2014. This is probably one of the best debut videos that I’ve ever seen on YouTube. All of the technical aspects like lighting and editions are perfect, and Alexa’s personality really shines throughout the video. Through this video Alexa is able to keep us interested in what she’s saying, and definitely makes you want to continue watching her videos. Honestly with such a strong start, I’m excited to see how good her videos will be years from now.

 

The next video that we’re going to discuss is Alexa’s ‘Cute & Easy DIY Mason Jar Room Decor’ video, which was uploaded on January 9th, 2015. I thought that this was a really cool idea, and with spring right around the corner, these jars will definitely add a little fun to your decor. Personally I really love that this DIY is easy to follow, and versatile enough that you can add your own style to make each jar unique. These also make really cool (and cheap) gifts for family and friends if you’re on a budget (or you spent all of your money at Starbucks…again).

 

This is definitely a fun video to check out, and I highly suggest that you try out this DIY. Now we’re going to talk about Alexa’s ‘What’s on my iPhone + How I Edit Instagram Photos!’ video, which was uploaded on February 23rd, 2015. Now admit it, we all love seeing what cool apps other people have on their phones. I was honestly really excited to see this video because you can tell that Alexa knows how to edit (I mean look at how great her videos are edited). The thing that I liked best about this video was the fact that the process that Alexa uses to edit her photos isn’t difficult to follow, and the end result will make all your selfies look very cool.

 

The last video that we’re going to talk about is Alexa’s ‘Huge Spring Haul 2015!’, which was uploaded on March 7th, 2015. Now y’all know that we’re not going to talk about a beauty/fashion guru and now include a haul video. As you can probably guess, I LOVED this video (honestly it’s hard not to love Alexa’s videos). I think that it’s fun to check out what other people buy because you really get a sense of their style and personality, and you can get a lot of cool outfit ideas from these videos. Alexa definitely found a lot of cute spring pieces that you will all want to run out and get right now.

YouTube Wednesday: #DearMe, the new YouTube campaign that you HAVE to check out

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday. We are going to talk about a very interesting question that is a part of a new floating around YouTube. The question is “what wisdom would you share with you teenage self?”. YouTube asked many of its’ female creators to make a video where they answer this question (in honor of International Woman’s Day, which is on March 8th), using the hashtag #DearMe. I thought that this was a really cool topic to talk about, because honestly I think we all have things that we would love to tell our teenage selves. I watched A LOT of these videos, and even though they were all great, I decided to bring y’all 4 YouTubers from various YouTube communities. So check out these AMAZING women of the internet, and let me know what you would love to tell your teenage self.

 

First off, we’re going to talk about actress/comedian/vlogger Grace Helbig’s video. Now most people know Grace from her previous YouTube show ‘Daily Grace’, her personal YouTube channel, her podcast ‘Not Too Deep With Grace Helbig’, her self-help book ‘Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-Up’, her work as a co-producer/co-star on the feature film ‘Camp Dakota’, and sooo much more TV/YouTube work that would be too long to list. I really loved Grace’s video, because it was full of a lot of good advice, but still included some of the humor that makes Grace so much fun to watch. In this video, she talks about having fun with life, and always laughing no matter what is going on. I think that that is a really good message, because as we get older we can forget to take the time to have fun, and eventually just become stressed out messes (and who wants that right?), Grace also talks about not letting your fear’s control you, and even says that there is a philosophy in improv comedy that says you should “follow your fear”. I think that this is good advice to follow, because as the great philosopher Taylor Swift once said “To me, Fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death”. Check out her video here:

Daily

Next up we have violinist Lindsey Stirling, who was first introduced to us when she competed on season 5 of America’s Got Talent in 2010 (she competed as a hip-hop violinist, which meant that she played the violin while showing dancing…yeah I’m guessing that is MUCH harder than it sounds). Lindsey then went on to blow us away on YouTube with her AMAZING covers, and original music. In her #DearMe video, Lindsey talks about how when we’re young (and occasionally when we grow up), we are very insecure, and often feel like we have to impress everybody. Lindsey says that the best way to handle this is too remember that “you would care a lot less about what people thought about you, if you knew how little they thought about you”. Which means that everybody is so insecure about their own “flaws”, that the majority of the time they’re not even thinking about your “flaws”. She also talks about how she would advice herself too not be afraid of putting yourself out there and making new friends, talking to people who you want to be more than friends with, and following your dreams, because if you try and fail, you’ll at least know instead of wondering what could have been. Lindsey would definitely know all about perseverance, because when she was voted off America’s Got Talent, the judges told her that she would “never be able to fill stadiums”, and that her style just wasn’t marketable. Obviously they were wrong, since Lindsey is now in the middle of a world tour, and billions of people have viewed her videos online.

Now we’re going to talk about a YouTuber who I wasn’t previously familiar with, but I’ve watched some of her videos, and she is AWESOME! Who is this YouTuber? Fashion/beauty guru Scherezade Shroff. Scherezade is also an actress and has modeled for numerous international campaigns, as well as has walked in numerous fashion shows. In her ‘#DearMe’ video, she says that she would tell her teenage self to “love all your imperfections”. In this video, she reveals that as a teen, she dealt with having bad skin, pressure to change her hair, eyebrows, and teeth, and also suffered from Alopecia (which is a condition that makes you start to go bald). With all of the pressure that women (and men) go through to fit a certain image of what makes a person “beautiful”, it’s nice to see a YouTuber who was able to accept her “flaws”, and actually achieve her dream of becoming a model. I think that this video really makes you think that anything is possible.

Ok, the last video that we’re going to talk about is iHasCupquake’s video. She is a gamer, self-proclaimed “geeky baker”, and also post DIY (Do It Yourself) videos. I wasn’t familiar with this YouTuber either, but after watching a few of her videos, I found that she has a fun/funny personality, with a channel full of diverse content, definitely a channel too check out if you haven’t already. Her #DearMe video was all about being yourself, and remembering that “You like what you like”, and that’s ok. It’s really cool to see influential YouTubers encouraging their viewers to celebrate their uniqueness (let your weird live people), because it can be hard for us to be ourselves and enjoy the things that make us happy, if these things aren’t “cool” (as long as what you enjoy isn’t illegal or hurts anyone, go for it!). She also brought up a really good point about surrounding yourself with good people who will lift you up, because “who you surround yourself with is a reflection of you”. I think that this is really really good advice, because if you’re around negative people then you will have A LOT of drama in your life, but if you’re around positive people, then life can be a lot easier. She also talked about how we change as we grow up, so you should not only embrace who you are, but who you will become.

Monday Memos: The Dress That Broke The Internet

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’, we are going to talk about the picture that had us glued to Twitter/Tumblr/Vine, and basically every other form of social media this weekend. Yes, we’re going to talk about…THE DRESS. This dress was such a huge internet topic this weekend, that a man from Texas actually got it tattooed on his leg. Crazy right?

The-Dress-Tattoo

So why is it that everyone was so fascinated by this picture? This picture has trended multiple times on Twitter, and has sparked an argument that even celebrities are lending their opinion to. Some say the dress is White & Gold, other people say it’s Black & Blue…so what’s the answer? Can the answer be found through science? Is it a photography trick? Are we all just going crazy? Well keep reading and we’ll talk about why we care so much about the color of this dress, why we all see different colors, and most importantly…WHAT COLOR IS THE DRESS???

 

Let’s start off by exploring why everyone is so obsessed with this dress. I think that the main reason why this picture turned into a big deal is the fact that we all like to feel like we’re “right”. As humans we love to argue, and more importantly…we love to win. Because we’re a society who loves competition ( I mean look at all of the competition shows we have, how much we love internet challenges, even the way we all compete over who has the most friends/likes/retweets/favorites/etc., etc.,), then you can see how we were all instantly drawn to this conversation. So now we can move on to why we all see different colors when we look at this dress. According to the YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE (a YouTube channel that explains the great mysteries of the world through science), the answer to this question can be explained by how your brain processes colors in relation to light. Basically the short version of this is, if you think that the background of the picture is set against natural light (like near a window or outside), then your brain processes the colors one way, and if you see the dress in a room with artificial light, then your brain processes the colors in a different way. That’s why we all see different colors (personally I kept seeing light blue and gold…so IDK what that means). It’s all a little confusing, and maybe this explanation isn’t correct either, but it’s the seemed to make the most sense, so check out the video for yourself below.

So now we move on to the big question on everyone’s mind…what color is the dress? The answer according to the company that produces this dress is…Black & Blue. So whether you were “right”, “wrong”, or are just SERIOUSLY tired of hearing about this dress, you have to admit that it was interesting to see the internet (and traditional sources of media) practically stop because of 1 picture. It seemed like everybody (even some of our favorite celebrities) stopped and gave their opinion about what color they thought the dress was. Whether you were a part of this internet moment, or wish people would stop talking about it, I think that we can all agree on 1 thing…this picture and all of the discussion that came with it will definitely go down in internet history (sorry but it’s happening, and we all know it). I mean we all still ask whether the chicken or the egg came first, so I guess this is the new question that we’ll ask ourselves for years. I think that this was a fun internet moment that we can all playfully (or seriously) debate and laugh about. Let me know what y’all think about THE DRESS below! I think this vine best sums up our frustration about this topic

YouTube Wednesday: Alex Centomo…the beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru that you will be tuning in every week to watch

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ blog, we’re going to talk about a new YouTuber who I know you will all be obsessing over (if you’re not already). If you’re not already watching Alex Centomo’s YouTube videos every week, then you’re definitely need to join the other 189,931 subscribers (as of February 18th, 2015) who anxiously await this beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru’s new videos. So if you’re ready, let’s jump into blog post!

 

The first video we’re going to talk about is Alex’s ‘Chubby Bunny Challenge’ video, which was uploaded on December 24th, 2012 (here’s the video link: CHUBBY BUNNY CHALLENGE). I wanted to start with this video, because it is one of Alex’s first videos, and I think that it really shows off her fun, bubbly personality. I think we can all agree that it’s cool to see our fav YouTubers having fun, and enjoying the things we enjoy (I mean cause we all love stuffing marshmallows in our mouths with our friends right?). So this was definitely a good video for Alex’s viewers to start feeling like she’s like any other for that they could meet and become friends with (except this friend can give you awesome fashion/beauty advice). Speaking of fashion and beauty advice, let’s move on to the next video! The next video that we’re going to discuss is Alex’s ‘Get The Look: Ashley Benson Inspired Makeup & Outfit’ video, which was uploaded on February 2nd, 2014 (here’s the video link: Get The Look: Ashley Benson Inspired Makeup & Outfit). Now we all love Ashley’s style (because seriously Pretty Little Liars is life right? Right!), so you gotta love that Alex broke down an “Ashley Benson type” look that we can all copy and/or alter as we like. This video uses mostly high end products, but you could definitely substitute any of the products for any drugstores that you want. This video will give you the perfect school/winter look (of course it is perfect for any season), because Ashley has a very casual yet cool vibe when it come to her fashion choices, that’s great for all those days when we want to look cool with as little effort as possible.

 

Ok now we’re moving on to Alex’s ‘Mermaid Waves Hair Tutorial’ video, which was uploaded on September 6th, 2014 (here’s the video link: Mermaid Waves // Hair Tutorial ). With spring just around the corner, you will definitely need inspiration for new hairstyles. Luckily, this video is perfect! In the video, Alex teaches you how to create really perfect, natural looking curls that you can either keep tight or can run your fingers through it to create looser waves. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Alex’s ‘How I Edit My Instagram Pics’ video, which was uploaded on February 14th, 2015 (here’s the video link: How I Edit My Instagram Pics // Tumblr Inspired). I thought that this was a really cool video to include in this blog post because we all want to know how to have the best selfie possible. In this video Alex not only shows us what apps she uses, but also briefly explains how she uses these apps to edit her photos. If you look at Alex’s Instagram page (which I will link below), you will be able to see that she knows how to perfectly edit a photo, so you can know that you’re getting good advice.
