My favorite YouTubers

This is probably the easiest post I’ll ever write because today I’m sharing my favorite YouTube channels. Watching YouTube videos probably takes up 99% of my free time. I only recently realized that not everybody even watches YouTube leisurely, which is crazy to me because there are some people that I follow who almost feel like friends at this point (even if they have no clue who I am). These are some of my favorites, organized to some extent by the kind of content they tend to focus on.

Academic/ Organization:
Lipsticks and Lattes
 a law student sharing vlogs and updates about her life, as well as fashion and beauty content. But I primarily watch her videos because they always makes me feel motivated to get my life together and do my work

Holly Gabrielle – again, I watch her videos when I don’t feel very focused with my school work and I usually feel instantly inspired to be productive

Lifestyle: 

Kalel – I’m not sure if she belongs in the lifestyle or vegan category, although she is the YouTuber who originally made me decide to go vegan. But she makes a lot of other videos as well, and I enjoy her personality and find her LA lifestyle interesting to learn about

Whitney Simmons – I’ve mentioned her before as a source of fitness inspiration, but her channel also contains a lot of lifestyle content. She is super funny and inspiring!

Vegan community: 

Stella Rae – she also focuses on fitness, spirituality, and shares regular vlogs

Caitlin Shoemaker – favorite food blogger ever, I’ve mentioned her before but I actually discovered her through YouTube and I rely on her so much for food (and life, such as yoga!) inspiration

Cheap Lazy Vegan – more amazing recipes, and they really are cheap and easy!

Supreme Banana Cami is hilarious, “veganizes” a lot of very non-vegan recipes, and does some lifestyle content on the side

Avant Garde Vegan – AMAZING recipes, he teaches you how to make recipes at home that belong in a gourmet vegan restaurant, in my opinion

Beauty:

Reese Regan – she does a lot of makeup, fashion, etc. videos, but she also makes videos about college life, organization, fitness, and other topics that I find relatable. I also just find her very inspiring considering how hard she works for how young she is

Jeffree Star – this is a new addition, because I used to be intimidated by his personality. Now, I’ve embraced his boujee-ness and I enjoy watching his videos; I’m also very inspired by people who basically build their own empire which he has certainly done in the makeup industry

Self-improvement/ motivation: 

Kalyn Nicholson my all-time favorite YouTuber. I get so much inspiration and wisdom from her channel.

YesReneau – a Harvard graduate sharing her actual life as well as thoughts on various topics!

Amy Landino – focuses on achieving goals, business ambitions, social media tips, and more

Entertainment:

OJC Astrology astrology videos and tarot card readings; honestly I never used to be into this kind of thing but her videos are so accurately related to my life that I have become a big fan. It started out as entertainment but now I actually relate them to my life

Trisha Paytas – I mean, come on. Her recent saga with Jason reminded me how funny she is, and he’s hilarious too

Shane Dawson and basically everyone who is friends with him (Ryland, Garrett), just hilarious and a great person too

I could go on and on, but these are the people whose channels I pay the most attention to these days. Do you watch YouTube regularly, or prefer other types of entertainment? If so, who are your favorite content creators?
