Happy Labor Day! For many, this is a day of beaches, barbecues and enjoying the last hurrah of summer… and perhaps even the last bottle of rosé of the season. (Why isn’t it acceptable to drink rosé all year round, anyway?) However, I prefer to spend my three day weekend by jam-packing as much as I can into it, including lazy time I may not otherwise get to take advantage of. In my case, that would be a glass of the aforementioned rosé, online shopping and some quality YouTube time.
I’m actually not that big into the YouTube world — keeping up with all of my my favorite blogs keeps me occupied enough! But there are a few channels I like to check in with every now and again. For me, so many YouTubers are completely aspirational. I’d like to live like that, too, and have enough self-confidence to shamelessly document it on a daily basis! Sometimes I’m too embarrassed to take an Instagram, let alone a video. Plus, vlogging (with quality equipment) is in some ways a much more expensive and skill-intensive hobby than blogging, so major props to YouTubers everywhere. Here are three of my favorites to watch:
For general lifestyle inspiration, I love Marianna Hewitt’s blog and YouTube channel. She’s mastered the trends and looks of the moment, and shares it all with her viewers. Her content ranges from attainable (drugstore concealer hacks) to aspirational (safari in South Africa) and I love it all. Basically, Marianna is total #lifegoals. I’m also super into her Instagram and blog tips, especially the videos about how she edits her photos and plans her feed!
Speaking of Instagram tips, Drew Scott has an entire series on how to maintain an consistent Instagram feed that will gain an authentic following over time. I’m dying over his minimal aesthetic and sometimes he kind of makes me wish I were a male vlogger living in Los Angeles with his videos.
The Sorry Girls
And now for something completely different… The Sorry Girls. They’re two DIY YouTubers from Canada whose DIYs seem actually, well, do-able. Also, I don’t know if you know this, but I am weirdly into Canada (Drake! Hockey!) and convinced I’d be a great Canadian, so I love anything to do with the country, pretty much.
