Day 16 - Ooh La La... Best in Fashion | The YouTuber Challenge

I don't know if I think there is one specific YouTuber who excels far beyond all the others in fashion. I'm subscribed to quite a few beauty/fashion YouTubers and, while they all have their own unique style, I don't feel that any of them styles themselves better than the others. So, keeping this in mind, I'm only going to pick one of the YouTubers who I haven't already featured several times during this challenge and explain why I adore her fashion sense.

Although most of her wardrobe consists of pretty skirts and dresses, I feel like she has a spectacular eye on what looks good and how to pair tops and skirts. I'd definitely recommend this Sprinkle of Modesty, as expressed in Louise's personal style. She also, like Zoe (Zoella), rocks the great hair-dos. She's even recently lightened her hair and adopted a pink hombre style. Très chic! 

I also adore her blog: Sprinkle of Glitter. She posts about whatever she wants: from beauty and cosmetics, to crafts, days with friends, life tips, you name it. I find that it's very motivational and uplifting. So if you get the chance (if you haven't already done so) definitely stop by her blog and take a read.

Which YouTuber do you think is great in fashion? Leave me a comment!

Day 15 - YouTuber Photo Bomb | The YouTuber Challenge

My favorite picture of YouTubers together (so far, anyways) has got to be this one.


Okay, so once you've stopped staring at this epicness, let's break this down. From left to right, back row-middle row-to front row, we have Jenna Ezarik (ItsMeJennaE), Joey Graceffa, Marcus Butler, Jim Chapman, Tanya Burr, Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlog), Tyler Oakley, Louis Cole (FoodForLouis and FunForLouis), Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter), Justine Ezarik  (iJustine), and Zoe (Zoella).

Now, let's break this down even further. There are a few general categories these YouTubers could be separated into. Beauty, Comedy, Vlogs, and Sassy. Some fit into more than one category, haha.

Beauty/Cosmetics
The lovely Tanya, Louise, and Zoe make up the Beauty YouTubers in this picture. As besties and young women who've loved makeup since they were teenagers, I tend to trust their recommendations and one day strive to be able to do makeup as well as these three.

Comedy
For comedy, we have Marcus, Alfie, and Jim. And, more than occasionally, the fabulous Tyler Oakley. Each has his own style of comedy. For instance, Marcus likes to play different characters in some of his videos (Miss Margaret comes to mind). 
Alfie tells awkward stories and rants (without being over the top about it). 
Jim uses his intelligence and wit to uppercut viewers into a frenzy of "Wait-what-did-I-Just-Hear-Him-Say" but in a purely comical way - kind of like a British Ryan Higa? I don't know. You Decide. 
Then , finally, Tyler. His sassy self is just so cute that your cheeks hurt after every one of his videos. He throws shade, fangirls, THE WORKS! I've really been enjoying his "SPECIAL AUGUEST" videos, and if you don't know what that is, I'd recommend you click that link. If you haven't figured it out yet, Tyler Oakley is also the Sassy YouTuber of this crew.

Vlogs
While there are a ton of vloggers out there, the best few (I'd say) are these daily vloggers Joey, Louis, and iJustine. Louis, a guy who loves to travel, started his daily vlogging when he, Sam Pepper, and Maz took a road trip across the U.K. Ever since, he's uploaded a video each day about his adventures there, then in the United States, and wherever else he travels.
Joey's vlogs can be more topical. Sometimes he uploads unboxing videos of him opening fanmail. Sometimes he has a nice little tag or collab for us. Other times, it's him walking around in his every day life. Fun, fun!
iJustine is probably one of my favorite female vloggers. She has so many channels that I probably couldn't even list them all here off the top of my head. But, basically, she uploads a video every day from one of her channels (sometimes more than that). I really admire her because of her skill and diligence as a pro YouTuber.

So that's my lengthy rambling on my favorite picture of YouTubers.

Day 14 - YouTuber You Best Relate To - The YouTuber Challenge

Out of all the YouTubers who I can sort of relate to, I'd probably say that I can most relate to Ingrid Nilsen from MissGlamorazzi. Although she's a fashion/beauty vlogger, I think we share a lot of the same likes and interests. I think this is why I trust so many of her beauty, cosmetics, and fashion tips...haha.

One of my favorite videos that Ingrid has uploaded has been her GIY (Glam It Yourself) Wrap Bracelets. I think she filmed it artfully and it shows a more crafty side of her than her typical beauty videos.

Some more recent videos of hers that I love are 1) Back To School Essentials, 2) Show and Tell (with Tyler Oakley), 3) July Favorites 2013 [when she mentions that she likes this band called The Neighbourhood, I flipped the flip out because I've been listening to their album "I Love You" non-stop, haha] and ... 4) the one that I could relate to the most, her 50 Random Facts About Me video!

And, like the other YouTubers I've mentioned throughout this challenge, I'm such a fan of her instagram, @thegridmonster
And can we just talk about her cheeky little cat, Nugget, who makes a guest appearance every once in a while?
Adorable.
