You Tube Favourites

For the past year now I have been obsessed with watching fashion and beauty videos on You Tube. I one day would love to start up my own channel and hopefully have a more interactive connection with my readers. Until then, I will live this goal vicariously through my favourite ladies.

These talented and entertaining girls have made such a strong name for themselves across the web. They have created their own make up lines with various make up brands, travelled the world with other bloggers and turned what they do into an amazing career.

Jaclyn Hill:

Probably one of the most successful You Tube channels, Jaclyn has over two million subscribers tuning in each week. Her outrageous and vibrant personality isn’t for everyone but I find her massively entertaining. She is an incredible make up artist who lives in Florida, and she can create pretty much any look. She loves a strong smoky eye and can pose in front of a camera like it’s no ones business. Jaclyn also collaborated with Becca Cosmetics to created a stunning highlighter called, Champagne Pop. You can read my post on it here.

In The Frow:

UK blogger, Victoria has really came into the limelight for her blog and You Tube channel within the past two years. She is a lover of tattoos, colourful hair and designer brands. Until recently she had purple ombre hair but she has opted for a more muted grey for Autumn. Her style also features on her channel and she creates look books along with haul videos.

Beauty Life Michelle:

This Irish beauty has been busy living it up at NYFW last week as she was giving the opportunity to attend some shows curiosity of Tresemme. Her channel is growing stronger every day and her make up looks are so pretty. I could spend hours just watching her create different looks. The Aussie based beauty is definitely one of my favourites and I actually think she was the first ever You Tube channel I started watching.

Vivianna Does Make Up:

A classic English girl, Anna is that girl next door. She comes across as a bit of a good girl with a very natural look. She is best friends with Lily Pebbles and the two often collaborate together on their channels and more recently have held some workshops at Space NK. She features a mixture of drugstore and high end products on her channel and creates very soft and sweet looks.

Kathleen Lights:

This quirky Latino from Miami is one of the funniest girls around who actually has no idea just how hilarious she is. Her story is quite inspirational, she is 23 years old and is married to a military man so she lives on base. She has such beautiful porcelain skin and she enjoys the drugstore products overall so she is perfect for those of you who like to shop on a budget. I was lucky enough to get my hands on her quartz shadow palette that she created with Colour Pop Cosmetics. It is so beautifully pigmented and I can’t wait to use it this season.

Within the next year I really want to get into the swing of starting up my own channel. It’s definitely on my bucket list but I’m just not sure how the Belfast accent will sound on camera. Haha!

#LFW || Best Bloggers To Follow On Instagram

With London Fashion Week SS16 just around the corner, I wanted to share and update my collection of blogger’s to follow during the week long festivities. I shared the same post last year (you can read it here) but this season I’ve updated my bloggers to follow. I still have some old favourites included but I have discovered some new bloggers over the past few months.

Taking place from 18th-24th September 2015, it is the most prestigious week long fashion extravaganza to hit the UK. I am hoping to go to February’s shows as it is for their AW16 showcase and also my birthday week. I’m much more of an Autumn/Winter baby so I would definitely prefer to go during this time.

image

Over the week I am constantly glued (more so than usual) to my Instagram feed. For today’s post I wanted to share my five favourite bloggers and vloggers to follow during LFW. Like I’ve already said, I included some golden oldies and new stylish ladies to keep an eye on during the week.

Hannah Crosskey from A Fashion Fix: A classic girl who’s OOTD posts are within the elite streets of London town. The iconic town houses and chic gardens are a constant feature within her posts. A regular at LFW, Hannah is definitely one to follow for up to date information and beautiful style shots.

image

image

Louise O’ Reilly from Style Me Curvy: It’s only natural that I include a fellow Irish blogger in the mix. Louise is one of the friendliest and down to earth girls I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. She has won various awards for her blog and is an inspirational ambassador for gorgeous girls with beautiful curves. Her Instagram shots are so pretty and definitely worth mentioning for LFW.

image

image

Philippa Bloom & Sarah Tankel Ellis from We Are Twinset: A new addition to my LFW follow, these two girls have been creating a storm within the blogging community. I had the pleasure of meeting Philippa last year and she is equally beautiful in real life. They have such fabulous style and are greatly known within the London fashion scene as they have been stylists for a few years now. I can’t wait to see what they will be sharing during the week, no doubt they’ll get some backstage shots.

Victoria from In The Frow: An oldie but goodie, Victoria is a girl with white hair, tattoos and amazing style. She can rock pretty much any look and her shots from LFW are just so beautiful. She also has a You Tube channel so you can see the week long festivities through her eyes along with some behind the scenes action and make up tutorials.

image

image

Sandra Hagelstam from 5 Inch And Up: The absolute pro and in a league of her own when it comes to style and blogging, Sandra is a must follow in general. Her shots are incredibly raw and her looks are bold and brave. A lover of all things designer, she is my high end blogger that I love to follow as I live and breathe these designers vicariously through her.

I hope I have you all equipped for LFW, I just can’t wait to see all of the glorious shows unfold through the eyes of these amazing bloggers.

Inspirational Blogger || In The Frow

I’ve really been enjoying sharing my ‘Inspirational Blogger’ series with all of you. It’s a great way of networking with other fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers that you admire. Today I am focusing on a UK blogger named Victoria. She is a fabulous blogger who is the brains behind In The Frow.

image

With all of the bloggers I have featured so far, one thing I love about them is the fact that I could spend hours just watching their In The Frow – You Tube channel. They make vlogging look completely effortless, they look and sound great on camera. I’ve always wanted to start up my own YouTube channel but I’ve always been a little conscious of my accent.

image

The purple hair alone is enough for me to become a fan of Victoria’s, but her effortless style is a major factor. No matter what look she is going for, she always looks stunning. There are so many different looks that she works, from youthful and fun to sophisticated and chic. Even with a simple oversized scarf, Victoria looks fab.

As I follow her on Instagram, I’ve noticed that Victoria is a huge fan of the ‘Selfies’. I absolutely love this about her as she is not afraid to get in front of a camera and have a little fun.

Of course being a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger, she does cover each area with clean photos, amazing style and great make up tips. Travelling is also a big part of her life and with each adventure, Victoria includes her readers on every journey.

This week has also been quite a milestone for the lovely, Victoria. Firstly, she passed her PHD in mobile fashion design and secondly, she reached 100k subscribers on her YouTube channel. Congratulations! ♥

For those of you who have yet to come across the vibrant Victoria and her blog, I suggest that you spend a little time catching up with her latest adventures.
