I’m Taking a Hiatus…from YouTube…just a little one :)

10 Oct

Hey Divas,

Don’t worry, don’t worry. I’m just taking a short break from recording live videos on my YouTube for a short while. Check out the vid below to get all the deets!

So if you suffered through my lengthy video, you got all the meat and potatoes on why I have chosen to take a break. In short, I have to get my barrings together to essentially provide you guys with quality videos. Videos that’s full of info, character and variety. I’m definitely venturing in creating 2 other YT channels; one basically my vlogging channel where I talk about my day to day as a single mommy, a friend, a sister, see how I explore my makeup artistry as a career, school, reviews on television and other forms of entertainment, and namely a place where I can hold, what I call are my “Diva Discussions”. Basically I’m inviting you Divas out there to ask me anything from makeup to relationships, whatever, and I’ll do my very best to address them. ūüôā The other channel will be geared towards my health and body/ weight loss journey. It’s a huge undertaking, but I want you guys to get a full view of Chrissy, me! (ooh, I might be kickin’ myself after this one.)

My MissChriss82 YT Channel will still be what you’re used to, hair and makeup, but even more…fashion, outfits of the days. I hope you enjoy that!

In my YouTube absence, please take the time out to check out these gorgeous YT Divas. They are definitely women that I am currently (stalking) subbed too, and I think you can take a piece from each of their channels and incorporate them in your Diva Life. 

Niniluvsmakeup: Nini loves make up and she’s not afraid to show YOU! haha. I fell in love at first blush with this chick. FORREAL!! She has such a sweet personality and her talent is so apparent. When you look at her first videos and you move up to the most recent ones you can see how she’s flourished more and more with her skills. She features a healthy balance of budget friendly as well as more¬†pricey cosmetics in her videos (in her more recent ones), but there’s nothing¬†pretentious¬†about it. I love to watch a Diva with skills, great personality and humility. With humility, comes growth, and this Diva is just a-growing before my very eyes. Such a pleasure to watch! (Plus she’s my play YT cousin, so she’s certified Dope Divaliscious)¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/Niniluvsmakeup#p/u

MOAMNETWORK: Peeks and Lola, two dope, creative, funky, fun, gorgeous bloggers from the UK. Their channel highlights basically everything from fashion to hair to makeup. They give great advice for those wanting to jump start their own business. Their personality is totally reflective of their channel, so one look at these chicks, you can’t help but click “Subscribe”¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/MOAMNETWORK

BisaNation: This cocoa, velvety beauty had me at “Hi guys, hope you’re good”. Her channel is simply brilliant. While her first few videos focused on her as a musician (talented one at that) her latter videos delve in another huge talent that she has; the ability to beat her face like it stole something. Her videos showcase her makeup, hair and fashion sense, and is edited to perfection. She’s warm and welcoming yet she manages to be clear and precise on her¬†demonstrations¬†and reviews. I absolutely love her. MUAH!¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/BisaNation

Fabulosityitsme: I just happened upon this gorgeous beast while doing my “research” on my next possible hair purchase. I don’t even remember which company I was researching because after clicking on her video, I kept clicking on another one, and another one and another one. She’s really quite captivating. She has that girlfriend, girl-next-door vibe to me that I was really drawn to. Although her channel touches on hair and some fashion, I see myself clicking on her more and more to get great hairstyling ideas. She wears long, luscious hair that always seems effortlessly fabulous. I know if you Divas want to know how to DYI your hair baby, she definitely should be on your playlist.¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/fabulasityisme

MakeupD0ll: Oh my GOSH, I’ve been watching Keisha since she was rocking her cute little bob! Now she’s wigged and weave out and fierce baby. She’s always a pleasure to watch. She’s one of the few divas I have been subscribed to for a long time and still watch religeously. It’s just awesome to see how far she’s come. She’s a southern cutie, with a sick sense of style and darling personality and I absolutely love her. “Hey Y’all” hehe. She’s just recently gotten into talking about her natural hair, did a big chop, and as I mention in the above video, is another diva adding more and more substance and growth on her channel. She’s the one chick that inspired me to create a second channel for vlogging and being “myself”, so thank you for that sis. ūüėȬ†http://www.youtube.com/user/makeupD0LL?blend=1&ob=4

Flowerpush: This is my babydoll. I love this little vixen and I was really missing her during her brief absence from YouTube. She did really pretty makeup on herself, wore really dope outfits, did her hair in a way that only a true diva would appreciate, and just exuded the true nature of a young, fun chick. Who doesn’t like that? She did what a lot of us has considered and ultimately done; she made the very public pledge to get her natural hair back in check, and she realized that that’s something that takes time and dedication and most importantly EDUCATION to take on. I think she made it a point to not wear her weave for a while to do this which a dedication that I know some of you weaveaholics, myself included, finds hard to give. But now we as viewers get to reap the rewards of seeing her hard work in the form of that full, gorgeous head of head she’s wearing. Don’t get it twisted though, she still wears her Diva’s Crown (hair weave) from time to time to. Can’t wait to see what new info she will be giving us moving forward. C’mon mama, what’s the tea on your hair maintenance? Inquiring minds…¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/flowerpush?blend=1&ob=4

Mrsdivalike: Lawd oh lawd, I love me some Keke. Click on her channel and you’ll see why. Her videos always seem like you’re chattin’ it up with your fav girlfriend, getting all the tea on the hair do’s and don’t’s. She always has me cracking up and I’m not sure she realizes how funny she is, but that’s just it; she’s just another, down to earth, authentic chick that I have learned so much from! She does great reviews on accessories too as well as some great fashion tips. ¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/mrsdivalike

MissBossyLIVE: Wigs, weaves galore and even more. I found this BOSS CHICK’s video when looking up on how to color treat my Vixxens’ Hair Imports Virgin Indian hair. I wanted to do an Ombre color treatment on my extensions and her video was top rated…so you know what I did Divas…click! Yes ma’am I did. I love her channel. She’s¬†knowledgeable¬†in what her channel is basically covering and she’s not afraid to share the secrets and tricks that we all thrive for.¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/MissBossyLIVE

LipSHOCK: She’s just a darling. I love this Diva’s channel, absolutely. Her videos are basically makeup application but she does share some info on her makeup likes and recommendations, etc. Her channel is not “Review Heavy” from what I see, but that’s totally fine. Just seeing her applications of her many makeup looks should be a review within itself. I noticed that she very¬†seldom¬†strays away from her staple, go-to makeup brands (MAC e/s and foundations, NYX base, etc.). What I like about her looks is that they always appear to come out completely tied together, nothing too overpowering or over-the-top, yet they are very high glam. Her tutorials make every look she does seem effortless, thus, less¬†intimidating¬†for the newbies in Divatude to duplicate. I like that you can see the growth in her makeup looks and the way that she applies then. As a fellow YouTuber though, I admire most about her videos are her editing choices; clear visuals of the application, perfect lighting, sleek and solid background, easy to listen to background music, dead on voice overs…she’s got that down. Thanks for inspiring me to step it up girl!¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/lipSH0CK

txcutie75: She’s a FB buddy of mine. I love her. Admittedly I didn’t quite notice, notice her until she posted some pics of her before and after weightloss photos. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! She was doing a diet plan that was extreme (in my opinion) but obviously very rewarding; raw food diet. I believe she did this challenge for a specific reason but has since adopted this regimen in her daily life, not only because the weightloss success, but because she actually felt great while doing it. I’m constantly looking for the best diet or healthy journey regimen that would work well with my lifestyle. I’m one of those rare chicks that absolutely love and will eat ANYTHING, and I mean anything. I love veggietables, fruit, lean protein all that good stuff. There’s almost nothing edible that I won’t try. I have no problems with having to eat veggies and chicken and drink tea and juice…my only gripe with diets are “I don’t want to starve, and I need to have some kind of variety. ” I hate to bore myself. With TXCutie’s raw food diet, she would sometimes journal and photograph her different meals and upload them on FB, and honestly my mouth was watering. I commented on a couple of her photos my interest in getting into that sort of way of eating (just as dietary substance) and she was receptive in helping out with that. It’s great to have an ally in something like this cause I know it’s gonna be hard for me! She has an awesome blog as well so check her out!¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/txcutie75

BEATFACEHONEY: She sings and beats face! What else is there to say? She’s dope. That’s it, end of story.¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/BEATFACEHONEY

SimplYounique: I really really really love her channel. She actually has two, one for makeup and one focusing on her natural hair and different styling choices. She has like one of theeee best personalities on YouTube in my opinion, and it’s always great to see her videos.¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/SimplYounique

 

Renee304: OH MY GOODNESS! Talk about funny. I love Renee’s channel because you LITERALLY feel like you’re sitting in her living room, chatting it up with her having a grand ol’ time. Her videos are filled with laughter and great info on fashion bargains and hair styling. No matter what the topic of her video is, expect to crack a smile or two and don’t fight the urge to click “Subscribe”.¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/renee304

Keep checking back to this post as I steadily add more and more awesome YT and FB Divas that I think are fierce as hell! In the meantime, comment below and tell me what Divas you like to click on!

xoxo Chrissy
