True life: I’m Addicted to Vlogs

addicted vlog
I used to think that my roommate was weird when she would be in her room watching makeup YouTubers instead of listening to me talk. I would always yell for her through the door asking what she was doing and if she was busy, and she would yell back, “yeah I’m watching one of my girls, sorry.” Like thanks Nicole. *insert eye roll emoji*
Now I’m Nicole and watching YouTubers is my new obsession. I watch one in particular, Casey Holmes; I’m obsessed with her so much. I will talk to my friends and tell them about Casey like I actually know her and she is my best friend. In fact, yesterday I got so upset because she uploaded a YouTube video right before she did a makeup tutorial on Facebook live and I couldn’t watch her YouTube channel until she was done being Live.
I know I kind of sound pathetic and like I have no life, but I honestly didn’t understand Nicole until it happened to me. I have bought so many make up products from watching Casey because she recommends them. She is very honest with her opinions and she will tell you if she likes it or not. I also love that she is on a drug store makeup kick right now instead of just trying on high end things. This is so great because everyone has access to them and they won’t break your bank when you try to look as gorgeous as her…
I have to warn you about the addiction because it’s so good you won’t be able to stop. I have tried to find other YouTubers that I like, but none compare to my first love. I do however, life Jaclyn Hill, but I wish she used products that were a little more affordable like Casey. I won’t hold it against her though because I can relate to her personality when she is doing her channel. These two ladies have created such success for themselves through their YouTube channels, and I applaud them for it. I don’t understand the hate they receive for their fame because one they have had to work really hard to get where they are, and you don’t have to watch them if you don’t want to. There’s already too much hate in this world, and maybe watching YouTuber Vloggers is your new thing too.

I would also like to give another shout out to a non-makeup YouTuber who is Joe Santagato ( ). I have got out of so many bad moods by watching his channel because he is genuinely funny.

3 Things to do for a Whiter Smile


I get compliments on my white teeth ALL the time, and a lot of people ask me how I do it. I don’t do any of those crazy light things or go to the dentist for whitening. The secret is CREST! (3D white to be specific) I have linked the products that I use below. I have them all linked through Target, but you can get any of these at Wal-Mart or any drug store. Keep a look out in the paper for coupons that you can use on these products too because who doesn’t love a deal?

1 Brush your teeth twice a day.

I have been using Crest 3D White for about a year now. The results are amazing and I love the taste of the toothpaste. Other tooth pastes I have used before didn’t leave my mouth feeling fresh after I brushed, but this tooth paste leaves your mouth feeling fresh for hours.  Recently I have tried Crest 3D White Luxe and I love it even more. It is a little more expensive, but it’s honestly worth it.

2 Use mouth wash after brushing!

Mouth wash is beneficial to your over all oral health. Just like toothpaste, there are a bunch of different mouthwash brands out there. Different mouthwashes have different goals that are targeted. Crest 3D Mouthwash will also add to your whiter smile, and it will leave your breath fresh after using as well.

3 Crest 3D White Strips

I have not tried other whitening strips to compare, but I did have good experiences using Crest 3D White Strips. They don’t move once you place them on your teeth, and the directions are easy to follow. Again I purchased these at target, I used a coupon for them and I also used my Target card to get 5% off. My personal secret to white strips is to use them every day for 3-4 days and then cut down to using them once a week until your box is gone. Since white strips can get a little pricey I have found that whitening this way will allow you to still get the amazing results, and also make them last longer.


So this past month has been a little weird for me and I am wondering if others find the same obsessions that I do. I have been obsessing over a Vlogger on YouTube for over a month now. Her name is Casey Holmes and she lives in Georgia. I have found myself spending hours on her YouTube  channel watching makeup tutorials, and my new favorite thing Vlogmas (20 daily posts leading up to Chirstmas). I can’t get enough of her!

I quickly started following her on everything I possibly could, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, you name it! I have even watched her get ready on this new thing called Facebook Live. It’s kind of like Skype only she can’t see you or talk to you back, but you can watch her and write comments to her that she reads and talks about. I have gone a little crazy and even purchased a few of the same things that she either owns or talks about in her videos. Actually it’s a little more than a few things, but who’s counting!?

When her notifications pop up on my phone I quickly start analyzing my day to see if I can find the perfect time  to sit down and watch Casey’s new Vlog! I don’t think my obsession with her will stop and I am afraid to look into other YouTubers like her because I don’t want to be disappointed when they aren’t as amazing as she is. If you want to check out this amazingly beautiful chick for yourself then look her up on YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter at @itsbl0ndie.



One of my girlfriends first got me hooked on subscription boxes and now she has me hooked on influenster! If you are like me and you spend a significant amount of time on your phone you will love this app. In return for your honest opinion on thousands of products, this site will send you products to try out for free! It sounds too good to be ture, but it’s not because I just received my first Voxbox in the mail. Boxes are sent out once a month and all they as in return are your reviews on the products. The Voxbox I just received was a covergirl outlast box. It came with three different products. There was a concealer, matte finishing powder, and a two sided lip gloss!!! How fab! I’m seriously obsessed with influenster! You can also review food, beverages, decor and baby needs. This site has something for everyone and it’s absolutely worth checking out!
