Even though I don’t wear nail polish very often, I always check out Sandy, or Cute Polish’s designs. Her creations are so fascinating and imaginative. Not only that, but she also features other YouTube nail artists, gives application techniques, and tips on nail maintenance. If you’re into nail design or anything nails related at all, you should definitely check her out!
My suitemate from college showed me this YouTube channel and let me just say that I am thoroughly obsessed.
Essentially, it’s a cooking channel for miniature food. A mysterious person (face unseen) takes out these miniature knives and spoons, gets out his miniature pot, pulls out the matches, and gets cooking on food items approximately 10 times smaller than actually consumable material.
Although not particularly useful for someone who genuinely wants to learn how to make a certain dessert or side dish, it is fascinating how this person accomplishes these tasks on a miniature level – for example, stir frying or making french fries. There is a sense of imaginative exploration, which really draws viewers in.
I’m not sure if anyone has heard of them before, but Jayesslee is a YouTube music channel created by twin sisters, Sonia and Janice. They are Korean-Australian Christians! They have received mega success due to their popular covers of songs, but because they both became pregnant and had kids around the same time, they decided to take a break from YouTube.
AndymetSonia is actually Sonia’s vlogging channel. After having her kid (she’s actually pregnant with baby #2!), she decided to more seriously vlog about her life so as to remember some of the important memories of childhood and also appease her horde of fans. I quite like them because I think they live really exciting, very faithful lives. Anyways, if you’re interested, check them out!
As a celebration of my blog achieving yet another year <3, I have decided to revive something that I did as part of my very first blog posts – a feature on some of my favorite YouTubers, which have evolved and changed since that first day three or so years ago.
I stumbled upon this channel Cooking With Dog by accident during many a hungry night in my college dorm – watching other people cooking food and eating it is almost as good as eating it yourself, right?
What really sticks out to me about this channel is its quality and its originality. Ever since they started their YouTube channel (around 2007?), they have had the same format of video making. Obviously, the number of pixels have changed due to increasing technology, but the general format has always been the same. It always starts with lovely Chef (real name unknown) offering a greeting, before bustling into the neat, organized method of Japanese cooking with Francis, her real life dog by her side “narrating” (actually a man speaking in a Japanese English French accent). At the end, they always have the exact ingredients written down with Chef tasting the food and petting Francis. It has always been so clean and simple, professionally done, and of course a million times better than anything else with the unique addition of Francis in the cooking videos.
If anyone is interested in Japanese-style cooking recipes or just a lover of both dogs and food, I would definitely check this cute little YouTube channel out.
1. Andrew McMahon
I really like the pump up vibe of his music – whenever you need to be happy, just listen to it. Whenever I fall in love with one specific song, I will jam out on repeat.
2. Tab for a Cause
You can download this app on whatever browser you use. Without any effort on your part, every time you open a new tab, it will play an ad and you will get a heart – these hearts can be donated to various organizations that are close to you – water, health, human rights, etc. The hearts are generated as ad revenue and it will be changed into money that gets donated. It’s a pretty innovative way of raising money. Right now, they have raised a total of $106,440.34, so please join because the more people that are on board, the more money that gets donated!
And I suppose this goes without saying, but I am pretty excited about my new iPhone. I find it so much easier to talk to people and to communicate – via email or Facebook… I am still debating whether or not to get an instagram, but we’ll see. Hopefully I can use it to take more pictures to share to you all of all the exciting things in my life heh
JUBILEE PROJECT: BLIND DEVOTION
I cried so hard during this video, especially when it turned to the man’s perspective. You see… this is what happens between us and the Lord. He is always watching us, protecting us, even when though we are blind in every way possible. Although we might think everything in our life is wrong, we do not realize that we have Him, we have a devoted one so close to us, protecting us, comforting us, and always there for us.
I love Jubilee
Another artist/band that I am obsessed with is Us the Duo.
You can check out their fantastic mashup of the most popular songs of 2014 here….
But on to one half of “Us the Duo” is Carissa Alvarado, whose fashion sense I absolutely love
Carissa knows how to dress for her skin tone. I love her use of earthy tones and colors – going for the off reds and whites, browns that match extremely well with her hair, the relaxed hippy kind of look with hats and comfortable shoes and dresses. She seems to wear with careful care, but with a comfortable understated look. It also helps that she is absolutely gorgeous! 🙂
You can see more of her amazing style on her Instagram – which I took the pictures from!
