Top 5: YouTubers!

YouTube can get very addicting. Watching awesome vloggers on YouTube can get extremely addicting, especially when they put out content you love and look forward to. Today’s blog? My favorite YouTubers. I’ve always watched people on YouTube, but I’ve only started really subscribing to YT channels over the past year or so. I usually love to watch lifestyle vlogs and dance videos, so the following people totally deliver.

Matt Steffanina

It took me a while to really get into Matt’s YT channel. I would see his videos floating around Facebook and think, “Wow, these dancers are skilled.” Sometimes I wish I were a skilled dancer. I always wonder if I have what it takes to dance, like REALLY dance to choreo. Then I watch Matt’s videos and his choreo inspires me and gets me hype. He comes out with new videos every week to the latest hits and it’s great to see how he and other dancers he works with, interpret music. The fact that he also has vids that break down some of his pieces is great as well, because it empowers me to attempt to learn dance moves and add my own flavor.

Alex Aiono

This 21-year-old has all the girls swooning after him. And I am no exception. The first video I saw of his was the “One Dance/Hasta El Amanecer” mashup/cover. He sung in Spanish and it was smooth AF. I think that’s when his viewership went up. He’s made so many covers that sound way better than the original. You can tell he’s such a talented musician considering he plays his own instruments and produces the music. Lately, he hasn’t been too active on YouTube, but that’s because he got signed to a record label and is making his own music and touring!

Megan Batoon 

I’m not sure how or when I came across Megan’s channel, but it was probably because I saw her doing choreo in another YouTuber’s video. Her channel has a little something for everyone. Aside from awesome dance videos, she does How-To videos, cooking videos, weekly vlogs and one of my favorites, her top 5 fave things of the month. Overall, she just seems super bubbly and upbeat in her videos, you can’t dislike her. If you do dislike her, then I won’t judge you, but I guarantee she’ll make you smile at some point. She’s just her dorky self and that’s so refreshing to see. Some days I find myself watching her older videos that I missed and she just cracks me up.

Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval

Megan’s older brother! Just kidding, but they always joke about being related. They’re both half filipino and adorable. I’ve been a fan of Dom since his SYTYCD days. He was one of my favorites (I like b-boys 😂) and to this day, he’s still one my favorite dancers. His YouTube channel contains some funny content from parody videos to food challenges to his “Now Add A Dancer” series. He’s also got this one series where he does trick shots. The latest one he’s done was with Oreo cookies and it had me amazed. I just wonder how long it takes for him to film those videos. But aside from all the funny stuff, he has some really sentimental vids that just hit me in the feels, especially knowing who inspired the videos. My absolute fave video will always be this one:

Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell did not get her start on YouTube and isn’t technically a famous YouTube star. But she has a channel that I subscribe to and I’m always excited to see what’s next. Shay rose to fame on Pretty Little Liars but she’s one of the few Hollywood celebrities that actually puts out their own content and videos on YouTube. She’s the epitome of a lifestyle vlogger. I’m always looking forward to her “Shaycation” vlogs where she takes us viewers along with her while she’s vacationing in another country or state. However, my absolute favorite videos she posts are the #SendSammy videos. Sammy is her assistant of 3+ years (correct me if I’m wrong) and Shay always sends her off to do random things. It’s hilarious, but you can tell they are having fun and just want to make us laugh. Or else Sammy really does need a raise.

What kind of content do you like to watch on YouTube? Any recommendations on who I should subscribe to?

Best Dressed: 2016 Emmy Awards

It’s that time of the year again – one of the biggest nights in television, the Emmy Awards. As you may know, my favorite thing about award shows is the red carpet and seeing what my favorite actors and actresses in television look like all glammed up.

LET’S START WITH MY TOP 5 (in no particular order):

emiliaclarke68thannualprimetimeemmyawardswncnm18ax6cl

Emilia Clarke –  I’m pretty biased here because Emilia will ALWAYS be part of my “best dressed on the red carpet” lists. It’s the way she carries herself on the red carpet. The “Outstanding Supporting Actress” nominee went for a blush colored strapless dress by Atelier Versace. With her hair up in a bun, she accentuated her neckline and kept it minimum with jewelry. She’s so poised and elegant every time, even if she’s one of the biggest dorks in the world (I say that out of love).

kristenbell68thannualprimetimeemmyawardsmyr8yhbf1lxl

Kristen Bell – Yes, she’s back on our television screens! As I sit here contemplating  why Veronica Mars was never nominated for an Emmy, Kristen Bell in her Zuhair Murad dress is definitely a good distraction. The dress entailed a floral design perfect for the end of summer & beginning of fall! She rocked the low plunging neckline, but my absolute favorite part of the dress was the billowing skirt!

torikelly68thannualprimetimeemmyawardsmr0olkhq63nl

Tori Kelly – I know fans of the YouTube start will agree that Tori has come so far! You may know her for her music, but she stepped on the red carpet looking like a classic Hollywood actress.Along with her soft curls, she wore a black mermaid-style gown by Paule KaThere wasn’t much detail on the dress, but she accessorized well with a silver clutch and jewelry (Norman Silverman Diamonds).

lavernecox68thannualprimetimeemmyawardsrbryi49nu27l

Laverne Cox – She keeps making my best dressed lists! Her maroon dress she wore at this year’s SAG Awards is still my favorite look of hers, but this gold number by Naeem Kahn comes very close. The dress hugs her figure perfectly. She said she was excited of the possibility she may see Beyonce, but I definitely think she slayed the red carpet just like Beyonce would.

sophieturner68thannualprimetimeemmyawards8npeielcio2l

Sophie Turner – I still stand by my statement that she is a fashion icon of her generation. Out of this year’s award show red carpets, I noticed she likes to keep it neutral. Just like at the 2016 SAG Awards, she opted for a black dress but this time by Valentino. The spiked gold necklace accompanying this lacy dress gave it more edge ! Does anyone else think her look emulated Jennifer Lawrence? Maybe it’s the blonde hair, but either way, she rocked it!

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

Kerry Washington – The Scandal star may be pregnant, but she did not let that stop her from walking (read WORKING) the red carpet. She looked fierce in a black Brandon Maxwell dress cut at the sides, accenting her baby bump.

Olivia Culpo – Why was former Miss USA Olivia Culpo at the Emmys? I’ll never know, but she looked beautiful AND fierce in this Zac Posen dress.

Priyanka Chopra – I love red and this dress by Jason Wu was the best looking red dress on the red carpet.

Sarah Paulson – Honestly, I was having J. Lo flashbacks with this embelisshed, emerald green gown.But this Prada gown was far from it and Sarah pulled it off!

Millie Bobby Brown – I haven’t seen Stranger Things, but I do know that this 12-year old in Valentino is capturing the hearts of many. So I’m calling it right now: this girl is going to be rocking many red carpets in the future and will most likely be a style icon.

BEST DRESSED MEN:

Yeah, the men have it easy, but not all of them can rock a good suit. Here’s a few that looked very dapper tonight.

From L to R: Tom Cullen, Rami Malek, Trevor Jackson

and of course my Game of Thrones babes Kit Harington & Pedro Pascal.

And that concludes my best dressed of the 2016 Emmys (photos courtesy of Zimbio)! Who made your list?

Adele’s Top 5 Best Dressed List: 2015 Oscars

If you didn’t know it already, my favorite season is red carpet season and the 87th Annual Academy Awards marked the end of this year’s award season. I mean, I think the next big award show is the MTV Movie Awards right? But we won’t be seeing Oscar dresses on that red carpet (Although I’m quite excited to see who’s look will be making everyone talk).

Anyways, I chose my top 5 looks of the night and let me tell you, it was not an easy choice. Out of all the celebs that walked that Oscar red carpet, I flagged about 13 dresses and it was hard to narrow it down.

Here’s a little disclaimer before I get started: I am in no way a fashion guru and if I were to be honest I don’t know enough to tell the difference between the fashion designers’ styles. So again, these are just my opinions and what I find most appealing to my eye. I like what I like, you like what you like, so feel free to disagree with me, agree with me, whatever you’d like to do.

Oh and before I move forward, I also did a VLOG version of this post! I’m not too proud of it (I think I sounded boring), but you can check that out here:

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, my top 5 looks of the night:

#5 Katie Cassidy
Katie Cassidy has always been one of my favorite fashionistas and she blew me away on the Oscars red carpet! I was a bit surprised to see her on the red carpet. Don’t get me wrong, I love her and I’m proud of her success with Arrow. With that being said, her look stood out to me more than some of the nominees. She wore a sheer, silver gown by Julien MacDonald and when I saw the pictures I thought she looked so beautiful. It was a different dress with the detail, but the sleeves, the low cut, the off the shoulder look..everything was perfect.

#4 Anna Kendrick
The Into the Woods actress was one of the firsts to walk the red carpet at the 2015 Oscars, and while I may be biased because I absolutely adore Anna Kendrick, she gets the #4 spot on my best dressed list. When I first saw her step out on that red carpet, that custom coral Thakoon gown stole my heart. My first thought: “Is it too early to say Anna Kendrick gets best dressed of the night?” I guess it was too early, but she is still made my list. I mean, a lot of people probably were saying it’s too simple but I loved it anyway. The coral color screamed spring time and the diamond neck piece that held it together was absolutely beautiful. The updo and makeup complimented the whole look as well! She’s a princess 🙂

#3 Jennifer Lopez
Now I saw a lot of people had some negative and differing opinion’s about J. Lo’s look, but I thought her nude Elie Saab gown was beautiful! J. Lo never ages and she rocked that red carpet and flaunted what she got. Haters gonna hate, but she could care less. I also loved the addition of the belt to accent the waist and the detail of the sequins and don’t even get me started on the train. It was huge, but it was beautiful and it made her look like the belle of the ball! Now I know, Robert Duvall’s wife was practically wearing the same dress in a peach color (and without the belt), and don’t get me wrong, she looked beautiful too, but J. Lo stood out more to me. She strutted down the red carpet in true J. Lo style, confident and fierce.

#2 Rosamund Pike
There were a lot of red dresses among this year’s red carpet and Rosamund Pike’s Givenchy dress was my favorite! It was a strapless, lace gown that had a slit down the middle, and the whole thing reminded me of a rose. The little belt/cinched waist accentuated her figure and she looks so good considering she had a baby back in December! If you looked at the gown from the back, the top part was sort of like a corset and I thought that was really beautiful as well. Random fact: Gone Girl was the only nominated movie I had watched!

#1 Emma Stone
If you don’t love Emma Stone, what is wrong with you? No, but really, Emma Stone always looks so good on the red carpet and her in this Elie Saab dress landed her at my number 1 spot on this list. Normally, I’m not a fan of green/yellow dresses, but this color, chartreuse?, was absolutely beautiful on her skin tone. The beading flowing down from the top to the bottom of the gown was different for me, but I LOVED IT. I also loved that it had sleeves and all, but then Emma was a bit daring with the leg slit and the backless portion. It was both sexy and sophisticated. And of course the tinted lip color added to the whole look. She was stunning and that is all.

 

Honorable mentions. Remember when I said I flagged about 13 looks? Well some of the other actresses that caught my eye included:
– Dakota Johnson
– Jenna Dewan-Tatum
– Reese Witherspoon
– America Ferrera
– Jennifer Hudson
– Jennifer Anistonoscars

 

 

And a shoutout to all the handsome men in their tailored suits. These men were my favorite of the night looking so dapper and suave:
– Chris Pine in Georgio Armani
– Adam Levine in Georgio Armani
– Ansel Elgort in Prada
– Miles Teller in Prada
– Josh Hutcherson in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture
– Neil Patrick Harris in Brunello Cucinelli
