Feature: Top 4 Vloggers To Watch
Let's face it, we are all hooked on at least one TV mini-series (we blame Netflix). But did you know that there's - apparently - a life outside of Orange Is The New Black? Adding fuel to the fire of your current onscreen addictions, BNKR online stylist and YouTube enthusiast Molly tells us exactly what we've been missing on the smaller screen.
There's a hell of a lot of stuff out there on Youtube but it can be really overwhelming when you're still fresh. So to steer you in the right direction, I've picked my Top 4 favourite Vloggers to watch. Hopefully they can kick start your YouTube love affair just as they did mine. Be warned, you might never leave your computer again.
It's hard to believe that this girl is only 17 years old. This Byron Bay resident and world traveller (current location USA) is wise beyond her years. Over the past year she has progressed from a mainly beauty/fashion vlogger to focusing more on lifestyle and inner health. You can’t deny that she is genetically blessed, with eyebrows which may have been sculpted by the gods, however her videos also offer a refreshing take on life as a young woman in today's society. Her videos with Emma Mercury from The Messy Heads are particularly interesting and insightful as they delve into the issues affecting modern society.
Mika Francis’ hails from the UK. Her uncensored, unapologetic, badass sense of style and self has earned her over 100k subscribers. Frequently uploading a wide array of lookbooks, Q&As, DIY tutorials and travel/festival videos make it impossible to turn away. Her ability to wear her heart on her sleeve and laugh at herself are just a few of the endearing qualities that give her an edge over other self absorbed vloggers. Her individual style which often includes fluffy earrings, cowboy hats and overalls is the perfect reflection of her free-spirited attitude.
An obvious choice, but this fashionista is damn funny. Her videos give you uncontrollable 'lols' while inspiring you to dress however the hell you want. Settings include Central Park, her Manhattan apartment and zine headquarters, all of which will have your dreaming of that New York life (a la Carrie Bradshaw). Man Repeller also features many of her famous friends who discuss the important, hard-hitting issues - including how to tie a neck tie, your first Birkin bag and how to dance your way through a New York City commute.
When in doubt you can turn to Tothe9s. If you have a piece you're struggling to style or want to know how to rock the latest trend, these college besties from Vancouver have got it covered. They offer their viewers a variety of relatable videos including DIY, hauls, lookbooks and how-to-style segments - and it's all affordable. There is even a tutorial video on how to take and edit Instagram photos, so you can finally reach your follower target and perhaps never have to work another day in your life (they have over 50,000 followers).
