Good afternoon! (Or morning, or night... wherever you are in the world!) I hope you're all having an amazing day!
I'm a really big fan of youtube, so I've been wanting to do a "favourite youtubers" post for a while, and today is Monday, so... it was meant to be!
Before starting, though, I want to apologise to you all because this weekend has been HECTIC and I have to comment on a lot of people's posts. I swear I will! I have a big exam tomorrow and I need to study, but I will get to it when I'm done with this. You know I always comment, even if some times it's not on the same day, but I always end up doing it! I'll be there soon!
On to the post!
1- Carrie Hope Fletcher (ItsWayPastMyBedTime)
If you've been around for a while, you'll know she is my favourite youtuber. I remember the first time I heard about her vividly: I was starting to get into the youtuber world and a friend of mine said to me "Well, if you like youtubers, you must LOVE Carrie Hope Fletcher!" and I was like "Carrie who?" and she was SO surprised! "You love reading, you love musicals, you love tea, you love Disney... and she plays freaking Éponine who is like your favourite character ever on the West End!" Needless to say, I checked her out as soon as I got home and I've been obsessed with her ever since. She is such a positive person who spreads light and hope and I love her for that. She is a writer, a blogger, a youtuber, a phenomenal actress and singer and the nicest person ever! I got to meet her last November and she was so gracious and sweet to me when I was a complete mess. I also have to say she completely kills it onstage. I expected greatness and she was even loads better than I expected. She is such a big inspiration for me! Check out her song "Boys in Books Are Better", all of you bookworms, and you will go back to her!
2- Dan Howell (danisnotonfire)
It's hard for me to separate Dan and Phil, but they do have different channels, so I felt it would be appropiate! I love Dan to bits. I just find him really funny and endearing! He's a complete chaos and he's always having an existential crisis. I love his sense of humour and I might have a small crush on him hahaha He's never afraid to laugh at himself and he is really weird and nerdy and I love him for embracing it! I think his videos are the ones I watch the most on repeat!
3- Phil Lester (AmazingPhil)
He is Dan's best friend and they live together, so they do a lot of collaborations, which makes me a happy camper! He is very endearing as well, weird things keep happening to him and he is a complete disaster, but we love him with all our heart! He is one of the most huggable people on the internet and can be really innocent as well. He is quite nerdy too, and when he joins Dan for a video it's just a joy to watch. They are so funny and relatable in many ways! I love them!
4- Zoë Sugg (Zoella)
I'm sure you all know and love Zoella, so I won't ramble a lot about her! Like many people, I took the final decision of writing a blog after reading Girl Online. She was one of the first youtubers I followed, and her videos about panic and anxiety attacks were really helpful. She really does a bit of everything: collabs, challenges, beauty, favourites... You can see she puts a lot of effort into everything she does! Fun fact: I always watch her videos right before I have an oral English exam so I'll mimic her accent hahaha I've gotten good marks so far, so it seems to work!
5- The Fine Brothers
Theirs was the first youtube channel I followed and they brought me to everything else. I absolutely adore their React series. If you don't know them (which if you don't, shame on you) they bring groups of people to react to mostly videos, but also other things: technology, food, videogames, fashion... lots of things! Kids React is especially endearing to me but I love them all. After they posted "Teens React to Tyler Oakley" I decided to check him out and I haven't left the youtuber world since that day! Tyler brought me to Zoë, and then they brought me to everything else. They were the beginning of this (slightly insane) obsession I have with youtube!
So that's it! I will upgrade this post with pictures of the youtubers I mentioned, but I really shouldn't be writing this, I should be studying without stopping! I'll be back tomorrow to comment on all of your posts ^^ Until then...
A big big hug!
