YouTube Wednesday: Keegan Acton…the new beauty/fashion guru that YouTube is obsessing over

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an incredible YouTuber who you will soon bekeegan acton 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.

YouTube Wednesday: Dance Fitness with Jessica, the YouTube channel that you will love this holiday season

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss an AMAZING new channel that I know you’ll will love. With thedance fitness with jessica holiday season upon us the one thing on everyone’s mind is…food. Because of this, A LOT of people join gyms once the New Year hits, so I’m going to introduce y’all to a YouTube channel that will help you combat those holiday pound in a fun way. If you don’t like working out (or even if you do) then you HAVE to read on. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’ve going to talk about is Jessica’s workout video to Iggy Azalea’s hit song  ‘Fancy’ feat. Charli XCX, which was uploaded on June 25th, 2014. This is a really fun introductory video for this channel, because you get a small taste of the fun, heart pounding workouts that you’ll get on this channel. The moves in this workout are not hard to replicate, and are a great starting point for someone who wants to get into shape, but doesn’t like to workout. I mean who doesn’t love to dance right? Right! The next video that we’re going to talk about is Jessica’s workout video to Fifth Harmony feat Kid Ink’s high energy song ‘Worth It’, which was uploaded on May 15th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). This is another fun video that will definitely get you moving! In this video Jessica shows us a full body workout set to this song, that will have you replaying this video over and over. The best thing about the moves in this video is you can learn them and then add them to just about any upbeat song, and get a hard workout that’s a little different everytime. It’s definitely worth a look!

 

Next up we have Silento’s viral hit ‘Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)’, which was uploaded on June 30th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). Now this is a song that everyone has had on repeat, and a dance that we all love to do. In this video Jessica incorporates the moves from the song, in a high cardio impact routine. If you love Zumba and/or dance that’s set to modern music then you’ll really get into this video. Also, one of the best things about this (and all of the other videos on this channel), is that you get a tough, high energy workout in under 5 minutes, you gotta love that. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Jessica’s workout video set to Miranda Lambert’s song Somethin’ Bad feat. Carrie Underwood which was uploaded on October 22nd, 2015. This is a high energy dance video that has some really cool steps that will work you out, but aren’t too difficult to grasp. Whether you use these videos as a warm-up, or they are you whole workout, you will certainly have a fun time on this channel. I really wish I could’ve talked about all of the videos on this channel because their all amazing! So if you want to keep in shape during this season of food and fun, then definitely subscribe to this channel.

YouTube Wednesday: Lindsay Marie…your new favorite beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru

lindsay marieHello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about an amazing rising YouTube beauty/fashion/lifestyle star that y’all need to be subscribed to. If you haven’t heard of Lindsay Marie (aka lindsaylovesbeauty) then you are seriously behind on what new channels you should be obsessed with. Don’t worry I got you covered! So please read on to see why all of your friends will be subscribing to this awesome channel. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

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.

YouTube Wednesday…Tracy Campoli, your newest fav fitness BFF

tracy campoli

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we are going to discuss a topic that everyone likes to run away from…exercise. With spring already here and summer quickly on its’ way, we all want to wear cute (and often short) clothes. So I thought that this would be a good time to introduce y’all too an awesome new fitness/lifestyle guru named Tracy Campoli, that you will owe all your cute #OOTD pics to. So are y’all ready? Then let’s go!


Ok, the first video that we’re going to talk about is Tracy’s ‘Arm workout for tight toned arms!’ video, which was uploaded on August 24th, 2010 (you can check out the video below). This is a really cool video that will definitely get you dress…I mean arm muscles working. One of the things I love most about this video is that the workout takes about 5 minutes to do, which is perfect for all of us who are on the go (or just don’t want to work out). Next up we’re going to talk about another video that I think y’all will absolutely love! We all know that most of us complain about our waists and thighs, so if this is one of your “issues”, then check out Tracy’s ‘How to have a tiny waist and smaller inner thighs’ video, which was uploaded on December 13th, 2011. This is another workout that you complete in about 5 minutes, and it will definitely make you feel like you did some work today (so you can enjoy your tub of ice cream guilt free…yay!). I mean seriously, you gotta love a workout that you can complete during commercial breaks (or in between YouTube videos).

 

Ok now we have Tracy’s ‘Dance Cardio’ video, which was uploaded on June 6th, 2013 (you can check out the video below). This video is a bit of a longer workout (14 minutes), but will get you up and moving. I think a lot of us hate the concept of running (or moving at all), but one thing that most people do like to do is dancing. This video is a fun way to get that Casio workout that we’re all suppose to get every day, without feeling like you’re working out. The last video that we’re going to talk about is ‘How to get past a weight loss plateau!’ video, which was uploaded on March 26th, 2015. Now I know that this isn’t a “workout video”, but I thought that this was an interesting video for us to talk about. A lot of people make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight (or we decide that now that spring/summer is back we need to fit in those cute shorts again), but most people have  a hard time reaching their goals. This is a cool video that will give you some (free) advice from an actual trainer to help you continue to work towards getting as healthy as you want.

YouTube Wednesday: Mixed Makeup…your newest YouTube addiction

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss an awesome YouTube channel that I couldn’t wait to share with y’all. I recently starting watching an AMAZING new YouTube channel called Mixed Makeup that launched on May 1st of this year, and is definitely going to become a channel that you will all be VERY familiar with soon. Mixed Makeup was co-founded by Susan Yara (whose résumé includes: beauty reporting and video producing for ‘People’ and ‘New Beauty’ magazine, ‘TotalBeauty.com’, and ‘PopSugarTV.com’. The channel features numerous fun and knowledgeable beauty/fashion/DIY (Do It Yourself Projects) experts, who you will become completely obsessed with. So if you like beauty, fashion, home décor, and DIYs, then please allow me to introduce you to the channel that you will spend ALL your free time watching.

 

The first video that we are going to discuss is the ‘DIY Painted Ombre Side Table’ video (#PrettyLittleProjects featuring Caitlin and Caitlin Design Co.), which is the first video in the ‘#PrettyLittleProjects’ series, which was uploaded on May 1st, 2014. This video shows how to take any piece of furniture, and repaint it to create a really cool pink ombre look, that is the perfect finishing touch to spice up any room. I really like this video because it not only shows you exactly how to complete the DIY (the video shows how to sand the furniture, paint, etc., but it does this in a way that is concise, and entertaining. Caitlin and Caitlin (both of the hosts of this series have the same first name), are really entertaining, funny, and able to make you feel like you’re doing a project with one of your friends. I also really loved that they pick ombre instead of just pink, because I feel like this tutorial will make your furniture have a cool flair and stand out more than the colors you can buy from the store. I am REALLY excited to try out all of their DIYs, and after you watch their videos, you will be too. Next up we’re going to talk about the ‘How To Get Radiant Skin with Catt Sadler’ video (, which is a video in ‘The CattWalk’ series, and was uploaded on June 19th, 2014. Many of you may recognize Catt Sadler form her work as an on-camera correspondent on ‘E! News’, ‘Live from the Red Carpet’ coverage for E!, and various other shows and specials on E!. I was really excited to see that she had a series on ‘Mixed Makeup’, because if you’ve ever watched any of Catt’s work, then you know that she is incredibly knowledgeable, witty, and very fun to watch. In this tutorial Catt and makeup artist Maria Vargas show you how to achieve a flawless makeup look, that will give off the appearance of radiant, well-rested skin. I really enjoyed that this is an achievable look, that isn’t very difficult for the average viewer to replicate. A lot of the products used in the video are projects that most viewers either already own, or are at your fav makeup store (so now you know what to ask Santa to get you for Christmas).

 

Next up we have the ‘5 Minute Full Body Workout: Bear Squat, Plank, Spiderman, Bear Reach’ video, which is a part of the ‘Best Body Anywhere with The Studio (MDR)’ (5 Minute Full Body Power Workout: Bear Squat, Plank, Spiderman, Bear Reach | Best Body Anywhere), which was uploaded on August 6th, 2014. I thought that this was a great video to discuss with y’all because turkey day is approaching very quickly. Now let’s be honest…nobody diets on Thanksgiving, it’s just wrong (oh you know you sneak another slice of pie when no one is watching…its ok, #noshame). So if you eat 2 times your body weight over the holiday season, but still want to fit into all those cute clothes that you will buy on Black Friday, then these ideas are perfect for you. I love that all of the videos are high impact workouts that you can literally do during the commercial breaks while you’re watching your favorite TV show (or will you’re watching our newest BFF Catt on E! News). I mean c’mon, no matter how many times we say we’re “too busy” to work out, you can spend 5 minute of your Netflix time to work out…then eat pizza while tweeting during your ‘Pretty Little liars’ marathon (because 5 minutes of working out works off 5 slices of pizza right? Dare to dream people of the internet). But seriously, I really like that these videos are perfect for someone with a buy work/school schedule, who also wants to get a small workout in, or doesn’t want to go to a gym every day. The last video that we’re going to discuss is one of my favorite YouTube videos ever, because I feel like the concept is so cool and unique. This video entitled ‘Old Hollywood Black and White Makeup Tutorial of Merle Oberon’ (Old Hollywood Black and White Makeup Tutorial of Merle Oberon | Troy Jensen Iconic Makeover) was uploaded on October 10th, 2014. This tutorial shows the process that celebrity makeup artist and photographer goes through in order to give Susan Yara a look inspired by 1920s/1930s inspired by ‘Wuthering Heights’ actress Merle Oberon. I really loved this video because it shows you how to achieve a very authentic  “classic Hollywood” look, that will help you achieve some AWESOME black & white selfies. This look is also perfect as part of a Halloween costume, and will definitely give you a very cool and unique costume that isn’t impossible to achieve (so you don’t have to cut holes in a sheet like Charlie Brown…not that I’ve ever done that…). I honestly cannot talk enough about how beautiful and elegant this look is, it will honestly make you feel like a part of Hollywood royalty (and you will be the queen of the selfies if you upload a picture of this look on Instagram!).
