My favourite YouTubers

Hey hey hey lovelies!

So lately I've been more YouTube focused than blog and the reason for that is I actually haven't done anything or come up with anything exciting to share with your bloggers!

I watch A LOT of YouTubers and I've come to befriend some who are absolutely wonderful and hilarious! This week, I though that I would share with you some of my favourite YouTubers who deserve some recognition for the awesome job they do on their videos!

  1. Hpfansonghost: Hp is absolutely amazing! She isn't only super pretty but also such a sweetheart! Her channel is all about her music, which she holds closely to her heart. She wants to share with others great music specially some from artists who are super talented and need to get their stuff out there! If you love music then Hp is your girl! She knows them all from bands to solo artists! You definitely have to go check her out! She has a YouTube as well as a BLOG.
  2. 1BlazinEagle1: Gosh Stefan is the craziest of the craziest people out there but he's amazing!!! He's a super sweet guy with a love for extreme challenges and adventure! This guy shocks me and continues to amaze me with his courage in taking part in any challenge thrown his way! I really look up to Stefan because he not only makes videos but also likes to share the love in the YouTube community. When I first started, he welcomed me into the community which was so thoughtful and kind! Thank you 1BlazinEagle1 for everything! You rock!
  3. Chaplyns: Oh my goodness Lynsey! Where do I start? She's so amazing in what she does! She's a blogger as well as a young mother of two beautiful boys. She has a YouTube and has been through so much in her life! Lynsey is not only just beautiful but also has such a beautiful soul! I just adore her and just how lovely she is! Her BLOG is wonderful and I love stopping by to read her posts. She's just so genuine and honest which I really love about her!
  4. Sam Brown: Sam Brown... Sam Brown... Sam Brown... I honestly don't understand how this boy isn't super famous yet! Someone get him an award for being so amazing! If you don't know who Sam Brown is.. YOU ARE MISSING OUT! He is by far the most talented individual I have ever come across! He can play the guitar, the drums, the piano, the bass AND SING! I wouldn't be surprised if he has mastered every instrument on the planet, he's THAT GOOD! He makes covers on his YouTube Channel which are absolutely amazing and I just... I can't... my heart... his voice... someone just... Ahhhhhh I just fan-girl. Don't judge me.
  5. TheCamidamy: Oh Camile! She is a sweetheart! I found her on twitter and loved her channel! She so funny and I love the way she explains things! My favourite quote of hers has to be "You just gotta put it into the little container thingy that you put in before you put it in the thing" She is super cute and I just love her because she's awesome okay so you have to go check her out!!!!
  6. Emily Smith: This girl understands me! She is both fabulous and beautiful! I am super jealous of her amazing hair! Although I am not a beauty blog/channel, she got me into watching a lot of them and her channel is AMAZING!
  7. Kiffiemy: Caitlin Jane also known as CJ on the SSG YouTube channel! I am so glad I got to meet this super sweet and caring girl! She is so inspiring and she is such a strong beautiful girl! She has shared her battle with Crohn's Disease in a few of her videos and that made me respect her so much for it. I know it must've been really hard to share this with others let alone the internet! I love her channel so you definitely go check it out! :)
  8. Jordan David: This kid is hilarious! He's from Melbourne like me and makes really awesome videos on his YouTube channel! Definitely go check him out and subscribe to him you won't regret it!

Slacking off is getting me nowhere!

Hey hey hey lovelies,

Okay so... I know I have grown to become a terrible blogger... going from one post a day to not posting for weeks!!

This is ridiculous! Karine get your shit together!!

But in all seriousness though, I have been slacking off mainly because of how busy I am with two jobs and trying to balance it all out with YouTube that I've sorta neglected this side of me... my blogging side.

No I am not going to quit doing what I love doing... blogging... but I have definitely thought about maybe cutting back on posts. So maybe post once or twice a week instead?

These past few weeks have been CRAZY!!! Not really... just been ignoring tons of responsibilities..

Anyways! I have no idea where I was going with this post! I will definitely start blogging more!

I've decided that I will post twice a week, every Monday and Friday!
I'm really looking forward to this because I've noticed that once I make a set schedule, it works much better than just posting whenever I feel like it!

With this, I now leave you with my latest video!
If you haven't seen my YouTube channel or any of my vids, you can check those out by clicking HERE
AND you can also subscribe to my channel by clicking HERE!

Thank you so much for all the support guys!
Means a lot
Lots of love, Karine xx

My YouTube Journey - so far!

Hey hey hey lovelies!

So today I just wanted to share with you my excitement and pride in something that I have been working on for a few months now, and that is, my YouTube channel! You can check it out HERE

Today I reached 130 subscribers! That's crazy for me! I can't believe that people watch my videos, let alone 130 of them find my content good enough for them to subscribe! That is awesome and has put the biggest smile on my face!

For a few months, up until the end of April, very few people I know personally knew of my channel. It was always something I had wanted to do and I had finally found the courage to upload and I didn't want it all to go to waste by getting negative comments or hate from those I knew. And so I kept it on the down low. However, people started finding out about my channel through my blog whether that was reading through it or googling it to be able to vote for it (In an old competition I entered)

At first I felt so embarrassed and didn't want to face the reactions that I was sure to be getting from them but they were quite supportive and nice about it! Some even joked around saying that I could become YouTube famous one day!

Anyway it is an achievement in my books!
What have you all been up to lately? Have you guys achieved anything you are proud of?
I always to hear from my followers!!

Lots of love, Karine xx

Nail salon results at home!

Hey hey lovelies,

So a few days ago, I thought I would try the Broadway nails Real life brush-on gel nail kit.

Before I start this post and talk about this product, I just want to mention that I didn't get paid nor am I promoting the product in any way as I paid for it myself. Everything I say is based on my opinion and my experience using this product.

As I scanned past the various beauty items in Big W, I came across the nail section (which is by far my most favourite section in ANY stores) and saw this very box hanging all the way at the bottom.

I'll admit that the thing that grabbed my attention was the packaging. I loved the colour and the overall design of the box it came in. As I started reading all the big prints then onto the smaller ones, I started to really like the sound of the product!
It sounded like a very easy way to create salon nails at home!
For me this was a hug YES! Because I love designing my nails without having to spend hundreds of dollars on them.

After examining the box and its content, I decided to buy the product so that I may test it out for myself.
I bought it from Big W for around $24 which I thought was a really good price for them

I was so excited to try out this product that, once I got home, I got it all ready and set out.

The kit contains:

- Brush-on gel 7.5ml
- Brush-On Gel Activator 7.4ml
- Brush cleaner 9.7ml

- 48 self Tab Nail Tips (24 French & 24 Natural), 
- Mini File, 
- Manicure stick

 I made sure to follow the steps carefully as it was the first time I had never done it before.
I first carefully chose each tip by placing them on each of my nails and laying them out in front of me.
Since I have really small fingers, I picked all the small ones from the pack, leaving all the big ones...

 After a few minutes of placing and gluing the tips on my nails, I then followed the rest of the steps by applying the Brush-On Gel and the Brush-On Activator making sure to dip in into the brush cleaner after each nail.

I was quite pleased with the results. My nails looked so professionally done when really it took me about half an hour to get them to look like that! Awesome, isn't it?

There was only ONE thing I didn't like about it and that was how long it took the Gel to dry. It took me a really long time and got things (plastic bags) stuck on it while trying to move a few things.
I eventually went to sleep and woke up with a print on one of my nails so that wasn't fun. Yes I'm really that Impatient :p

If you want to get salon nails at half the price then I definitely would recommend this product!

Have you or someone you know tried this product before? Did they like it? Or have you just seen it in a store? Let me know! :)
Anyway that's all from me this time chickens!

Lots of Love, Karine xxx
