Top Ten: Favorite YouTubers

A couple weeks ago, I shared my favorite blogs (here). While creating that post, I realized that I am equally obsessed with YouTube. I do enjoy the occasional cat video, but I spend most of my time on YouTube watching vlogs and beauty gurus. Here are my top ten but there are definitely more. Who’s your favorite?

The Saccone Jolys– Their daily vlogs are the reason I spend so much time on YouTube. They have two adorable children and the best accents. I watch their vlogs every day and I cannot get enough.

Jaclyn Hill– She is hilarious, beautiful, flawless, and has the best recommendations. When Jaclyn tells me she loves something, I almost always seriously consider buying it. She used to work at MAC and shares so many tips for making makeup easier and look more flawless and natural. But watch with caution or your bank account will be in trouble!

Tanya Burr– I have a thing for British YouTubers. Tanya seems like the kindest, happiest and most authentic person. You can’t help but smile when you watch her videos and her makeup is always so stunning. Plus, I think that her and her fiance, Jim, are the sweetest couple.

Hannah Maggs– Hannah and her husband, Steffen, do weekly vlogs along with their son Greyson/Mr. G. The artistry and editing of these videos is unlike most I have seen on YouTube. They use great camera angles, unique background music and make you think of life in such a new and fun way. I look forward to their video every Sunday. Do yourself a favor and find the video where Mr. G goes to the baby spa for the first time!

Essie Button– I feel like Estee and I would be great friends because we are on the same level of awkward. She has such unique recommendations and is not the stereotypical beauty guru. I also enjoy popping over to her vlog channel every once and a while to check in on her adventures with her boyfriend, Aslan, and their dog, Reggie.

Missglamorazzi– First things first, watch her apartment tour! Ingird has so many great recommendations from brands that you typically don’t hear about. She also offers a lot of great tips and tricks in her videos about products and how to use them. I love that she posts healthy recipes on her channel that always give me inspiration.

Nicole Guerriero– Her tutorials are amazing. She has some seriously crazy tutorials that are definitely not for daily wear but will blow you away with what makeup can do. I love that she often includes bloopers at the end of her videos.

Makeup By Alli– Alli was one of the first channels I subscribed to. She uses a great mix of drug store and high end products. She isn’t afraid to use color and spice things up. I love when her cat, Biscuit, makes cameos in her videos.

Jenna Marbles– OBVIOUSLY! I think Jenna is hysterical. It is inspiring to see a woman who is unapologetically herself. Plus she has the guts to say what a lot of people are thinking. My two favorite videos are How to Avoid Talking to People you Don’t Want to Talk to (you may have already seen this) and What Bitches Wear at the Airport! Both have me in tears no matter how many times I watch them.

MM and L Show– I have a love-hate relationship with MM&L. I love their old videos and have not been too thrilled with their newest stuff. They do have a lot of great health, fitness and skin care tips; so they are worth checking out if you are interested in those topics. They were the first channel I ever subscribed to so I watch their videos regardless of my love-hate relationship. I love that they are both strong and independent women! Watch their first drugstore beauty video!

Do you have any favorites that I didn’t mention? Let me know.



Top Ten: Fall Bucket List

Fall Bucket List

In honor of fall officially kicking off this week, I have been brainstorming all the things I want to do this year. Even though it does not feel like fall in Northern California, I already have plans to do a few of these things while the rest will be on reserve for nights and weekends with no plans. What are you looking forward to doing this fall?


Top Ten: Favorite Blogs

I have to admit that I have a problem. I am addicted to blogs. I cannot get enough. Fashion and beauty related blogs are my ultimate favorite but I am equal opportunity–fitness, food, family–I love it all. I thought I would share my top 10 with you.

1. Cupcakes and Cashmere– Emily was the first blogger I fell for. I have been reading her blog daily for over 4 years and yes I have read every single post. Cupcakes and Cashmere is the first blog I read every, single day.

2. Gal Meets Glam– I mean Julia is just drop dead gorgeous. Plus she lives in SF so the outfits she puts together are totally ones that I get inspiration from being so close to me. I also want to visit every single restaurant she posts about on Instagram because she seems to always order the most delicious looking noms.

3. Maskcara– I just want to be buddies with Cara. She does amazing makeovers; she is the Queen of highlighting and contouring and she uses a great mix of drugstore and higher end products. What’s not to love?

4. Cara Loren– She has such effortlessly cool style and she always looks flawless. I absolutely love when she features her two adorable boys in her posts as well. Best looking family award goes to the VB clan for sure!

5. Pink Peonies– I envy Rachel’s ability to mix prints and wear bold, bright colors. Her lipstick game is out of this world. She always has gorgeous photos and I love her simple notes about her outfits and life.

6. The Glitter Guide– I fell in love with GG when I moved into my house. I read through every home feature and found so much inspiration. I love the range of topics covered on the blog. Founder Taylor and her baby girl Elodie are the cutest. If you ever feel like spending a few hours stalking people on Instagram follow both The Glitter Guide and Taylor Sterling.

7. Aubrey Kinch– I don’t remember how I stumbled upon Aubrey but I am so happy that I did. She takes such clean, sharp and beautiful photos of her outfits, hair, beauty and home. Maybe one day I can work with her to up the ascetic of my own blog!

8. A House in the Hills– I love Sarah’s approach to a clean and healthy lifestyle. I still want to try out the all natural cleaning product recipes that she shared. Everything she cooks on the blog makes my mouth water. Make the crispy peanut butter balls–you will thank me&&her! I also really appreciated when she shared her family’s experience with her father-in-laws illness. The love they all share radiates from the computer straight to your heart!

9. Happily Grey– HAIR ENVY! I couldn’t pull off the majority of Mary’s outfits but she always looks fabulous. She always nails it with her accessories and just seems so laid back and cool. I definitely go through her posts when I need some boho inspiration.

10. Barefoot Blonde– I don’t read Amber’s blog every day, but I do love to catch up with it every couple of weeks for hair and style inspiration. Oh how I wish I was decent at braiding. Her baby boy is just delicious and I love following along on her family’s adventures. P.S. do her ab workout!

I would love to know what your favorite blogs are!
