BONUS 6. Strawburry17 – I LOVE THESE THINGS! |April Favorites
I am recommending Zoella’s Let’s Spritz Fragranced Body Mist. Previously I have recommended her Blissful Mistful body mist which you can see here.
I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. Zoella’s products are no different and I very much enjoy them.
One of my best friends has made it a tradition of sorts to buy me Zoella’s fragrances as presents. This Christmas she bought me the Let’s Spritz body mist and I love it. The perfume is sweet but is a little more grown up than Zoella’s last fragrance, not that either are childish in any way.
The size of the perfume is 45ml and genuinely lasts a long time – well worth the money, since… It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug. The first fragrance was usually £8 or £9 but this one is almost half the price at £4.80 (source: freeunique).
Today I’m recommending my top 5 YouTubers who are taking part in Vlogmas this Christmas Season. If you’re unfamiliar Vlogmas is a Vlogging Everyday tradition starting on December 1st and ending on December 24th, Christmas Eve. I will leave you with day one of each YouTuber’s Vlogmas to give you a taste of their content.
Number 1 – Catrific
Number 2 – TalkBeckyTalk
Number 3 – Jenna Ezarik
Number 4 – Chyaz Vlogs
Number 5 – Tanya Burr (and Jim Chapman)
Tanya’s husband Jim, while not doing Vlogmas this year, vlogs every weekday anyway so it is worth adding him in here too. Click on his name to check out his vlogging channel!
I am recommending Zoella’s Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist.
I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. I’ve not yet bought myself any of these products although I do have a few YouTuber books. Anyway, my friend bought me Zoella’s perfume for my birthday earlier this year and I have genuinely loved it.
It smells good! The perfume smells sweet and girly but don’t be mistaken, it’s not a children’s perfume, it’s suited for young adults, although that doesn’t stop anyone who wants to wear it from wearing it of course.
It lasts forever! My birthday was in February and I kid you not, that I’ve been wearing this perfume so often, especially in the latter part of the year: I’ve been wearing it every day for a while now and there is still a third of perfume left! The size of the perfume is 45ml – well worth the money.
It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug and it tends to sell at £8 a bottle and right now (see date of post) at my local Superdrug, all of the Zoella products are on sale 3 for 2!

I don’t know whether you have gathered this but I really enjoy YouTube videos and especially those by vloggers. On this topic I wanted to share my TOP 5 Daily Vloggers.
- Fleur DeForce (Second Channel: FleurDeVlog)
Fleur daily vlogs every other month and I really enjoy her videos. I love seeing her family, her husband and her doggies as well as her trips abroad and behind-the-scenes youtube stuff.
- Jim Chapman (Second Channel: EveryDayJim)
Jim posts daily vlogs every week day on his vlog channel. I love seeing his life with Tanya, their new house and Jim’s adventures in London whether that’s for a fashion event, going to a film premiere, returning a pair of shoes for Tanya or even going to the gym.
- Michael Aranda (Second Channel: WhatImDoingRightNow)
Daily vlogs with lots of stats. Michael particularly enjoys his statistics and starts every vlog with a caption in the corner about the weather in Missoula, Montana and stats about his eating out habits and his weight. In his vlogs we see drone footage, his car travels, food explorations and non-too regular gym trips. At the moment, his videos see him juggling work, school (college) and his relationships.
- Jonah Penna
Posting a weekly vlog, Sarah, new mother of one, documents her daily life juggling work, being a mother and being a wife. The channel is named after her son and if you recognise the name Penna, you may well know another YouTube personality MysteryGuitarMan, who just so happens to be Sarah’s husband.
- JLynn Johnston (Second Channel: JLynnCognito)
Although he only daily vlogs once a year during VEDA, his content during that time is really fun to watch. JLynn posts a one-take vlog every day updating people on the events of that day or talking about a certain topic.
Cereal Time – Making Ourselves out of Cereal
GQ Magazine – Evolution of Hats: 400 Years in 3 Minutes (With Jim Chapman)
Ingrid Nilsen – Something I Want You To Know (Coming Out)
I wanted to add a little comment here, this video is in my TOP 5 today because I think no matter who you are or what your sexual orientation is I think this is a very inspiring video and it’s lovely to see Ingrid so happy at the end.

YouTube and the YouTube culture has increased dramatically in the last two years with many popular YouTubers being accepted into mainstream entertainment. With this has come the opportunity for many individuals on the platform to write and publish their own books in conjunction to their channels.
Now being a fan of many YouTubers myself, I have bought and read the books of some of my favourite YouTubers. Today I’m recommending Tanya Burr’s Love, Tanya.
Tanya Burr is a beauty and lifestyle blogger and YouTuber online. She also films the occasional vlog and uploads them to her channel. I find that Tanya is very similar to Fleur DeForce (whose book I recommended back in April) and as much their books are very similar, but as a fan of both I thoroughly enjoyed each book and eagerly read one after the other.
Tanya’s book provides a range of content similar to her online work. This includes fashion, beauty, love, friendship, relationships, baking, confidence, happiness and her own life. Much of this content is beauty related but this book is perfect for any fan of Tanya, since it includes autobiographical chapters and advice on anxiety and confidence, which allows Tanya to take her own anxiety as a positive thing to help others in the same position. Even without being a fan of Tanya and her channel, the book offers top tips on so many different things including relationship tips such as date ideas and wonderful baking recipes.
While reading the book I found that I never wanted to put it down and kept reaching for it at every opportunity. The book is just brilliant; it is aesthetically pleasing with a lovely hardback cover and many of Tanya’s own photos are laced throughout. I also enjoy the professional photoshoot photos at the beginning of each chapter.
Tanya really worked hard on this book and made it for her fans and that is so obvious to see when you’re reading her writing. For me personally, it’s great to see more about the woman on the other side of my computer screen and really get to know her further.
Please go and check out Tanya’s book and channel (click here).
Since I usually recommend people or channels, I figured I’d do something different for this YouTube recommendation and instead give a Top 5 of the videos I have been loving recently.
