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?

I remember the first YouTuber I ever started watching, Dulce Candy. She still makes videos today and she's still one of my favorites. I would watch her and just have such a fun time enjoying her videos that I knew I wanted to give that feeling to other people also. I didn't start right away - I was very shy and self conscious, but the idea was always in the back of my mind. Eventually the desire to make videos was greater than my insecurities and I just started to film and post my videos. It has definitely been a long process to get to where I am but it was the most amazing and fun journey I've ever experienced. I've gained so much confidence in myself and my videos have gotten way better over time. I especially love the creative freedom that comes along with being on YouTube. I can be myself, make my own rules, and do what I love doing. It's also wonderful to share my creativity and my creations and get such amazing feedback from my viewers. They really are the fuel that keeps me pushing. 

I'm inspired a lot by the seasons. I feel like my personal style transforms a bit with each season and everything else kind of reflects that transformation - makeup, outfits, video style. I'm also veryyy much into fashion and that always inspires me in so many ways. It's cool to see how a fashion trend creeps its way into my life and is represented in my makeup or home decor.

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 tends to fluctuate. In the Spring and Summer I'm very colorful and super duper girly. Once Fall and Winter roll around I have kind of a split personality. I'll be a tomboy in one instance, wearing snapbacks and jordans, and then suddenly change into this dark but very classic sleek style including faux leather and fitted silhouettes and lots of black. I find it to be a very elegant look for the cold, gloomy seasons.

There are so many brands that I adore. For beauty I've always been a huge fan of Too Faced, Nars and MAC on the higher end. I also love drugstore brands, especially NYX, Maybelline, and L'Oreal. When it comes to fashion my favorites list is HUGE, but my absolute go-to stores are Express, Zara, H&M, and HotMiamiStyles (online). My dream collaboration would be to create a cinematic style lookbook for Zara or Express.

What do you like best about FameBit?

I have really enjoyed being able to learn about new brands and companies through FameBit. There's so much out there that it can be hard to be exposed to every brand, but FameBit has helped me learn of some brands that I still love to this day.
