Share your story of becoming a Youtuber. How did you get started? What inspires you/ any muses? What do you love most about creating videos?

The reason I started youtube is mainly because a friend said I would be great on camera and that I'm easy to watch. I had already worked and a marketing company and knew the drill early on about youtube channels and what it takes to earn a way to the top. I was determined to create my own channel and build a brand behind it. I started with not really knowing about makeup or products and I began picking it up really fast. I was already a fashion blogger with a fabulous website so the transition to youtube was semi easy for me. I just needed a camera and lights :-) I saved up my money and began with small lights and grew from there. Some of my muses are Carly Christman and Meghan Rosette. I really love their channels it has that fashion side but with a  great understanding of favorite products. The thing that I love most about creating a video is editing a video and uploading it. Seeing the completed work is my ultimate goal. My most favorite part however is seeing the comments and feedback that is my absolute favorite!!!

Describe your style and a few of your favorite brands. Who do you wish to work with in the future on a collaboration?

My Style is LA street style with a comfy beachy edge... very socal. My fav brands are Brandy Melville and anything from Planet Blue.

For makeup brands I really love to just have a natural glow and keep it simple. The brands I love are; Chanel, SmashBox, Morphe and Gerard Cosmetics. The brands I wish to work with in the future; Lush, NARS, MAC and bigger Sephora Brands.
