Award Show Season

It’s officially award show season and with that comes fashion, fashion, and more fashion. It’s exciting to see what each celebrity plans to bless the red carpet with and who will come away with best or worst dressed. According to Harper’s Bazaar, some of the current trends include frills and layers, earth tones, and bird like apparel. To each his own. I’m looking forward to seeing what celebrities will wear for this years Grammy Awards even though I have no intent to watch the actual award show itself. I’ll actually be watching the Red Carpet so I can later form an opinion on best and worst dressed. Let’s get into it!

Vlogger Interview! Meet Youtuber WinsleyMelan

Beauty Vlogs are a great way to learn about new products, makeup tips, clothing and hair styles! Recently, I spoke with Beauty Vlogger Winsley Melan about her channel! Find out more about this MakeupMonster!



How long have you been vlogging? What led you to becoming a beauty vlogger?

I have been vlogging as well as doing tutorials since July 2015 now. What really led me to start my YouTube channel was I wanted to have something to express all parts of myself. I love beauty, technology, cooking, and mostly my city. I just wanted everyone to see that.

Since you've started your vlog, you have over 25k views and 500 subscribers! Congrats! How have you been able to stay consistent and motivated as a vlogger to keep uploading quality videos so frequently?

It’s crazy that I’ve reached this point, which at one time I truly thought was impossible. I make vision boards for myself on Pinterest, or I write random ideals of videos on sticky notes that I would like to shoot. Grabbing someone’s attention and keeping it isn’t the easiest, but you get the hang of it by taking notes on what people like the most. It’s almost as if you’re studying yourself to improve the quality of your brand.

What do you know know that you wish you knew when you first started vlogging?

I wish that I would have had better lighting from THE BEGINNING! I sometimes look at my older videos like “What was I thinking?” I literally would just use every lamp in my house and put them in the most unflattering position. I would also use overhead lighting, BIG NO-NO!!!!

Besides your own, whose Youtube channels do you enjoy watching and why?

I have a list of 7 YouTube channels that you have to check out. They inspire me to push myself on days that I really don’t want to upload or just to watch period. They all have their own aesthetic and uniqueness. 

Your channel now recently hit 500 subscribers! Any celebration plans?

My plans for my 500 subscribers is them as well as myself to become greater, and for me to continue my growth with them. This year I want to be more creative, also travel more. Overall, I want 2016 to be a great year for both myself, and everyone surrounding me.As a treat I decided to do a giveaway which is on my

YouTube channel

My give away are some of my fav products. It’s valued at $300 dollars with a mixture of makeup and fragrance. I just want whoever the winner is to feel luxurious.
