Hi loves! I’m so excited for this post! It’s been a while since I’ve written a post due to work & getting a stomach virus. I’ve made it my personal goal this year to really make blogging and myself top priorities. I think it’s easy to make everything and everyone around you a priority and neglect yourself. Don’t! Love yourself.
I have to say, no matter how I’m feeling, YouTube is always there for me. Last year, I found myself getting more and more into fashion, beauty, and lifestyle vloggers, especially to learn new makeup techniques. (RIP my wallet)
When I was sick last week, my old fave KathleenLights & new fave OneTrueBoy got me through it. (Trust me, you need to go watch: Youtube.com/OneTrueBoy) His rant about having to help sour customers in retail (as both of us do) had me in tears. 😂
I’ve decided to interview my friend and coworker, Christian/OneTrueBoy because he’s funny, talented, and simply put, you just can’t stop watching him. Whether he’s talking about his skin care routine, his weekend outings with his boyfriend, run ins with ignorant homophobic loudmouths, or just life itself he’s always uplifting and inspiring.
His channel is about beauty, fashion, advice, gay topics, and honestly, it feels like you’re chatting with a friend when watching his videos.
Here are the questions I asked him;
1. What inspired you to start your own Youtube channel and do tutorials?
I think what inspired me most to start my YouTube channel was the fact that I love talking about everything! Especially about beauty, make-up and dating. I want to have a ton of best friends and what’s better than having best friends from all over the world through YouTube.
That’s awesome! YouTube is truly amazing in that we’re all connected now through our shared passions, be it beauty, music, fashion, anything.
2. Who or what is your muse / Who or what makes you feel creative?
My muse is not necessarily a person but more of a feeling of seduction, passion and beauty. Everyone wants to feel beautiful and I try to inspire beauty upon everyone.
I start to feel most creative when I plan my outfits for the type of video I’m going to create.
I love that! That same feeling inspires me. I want to help everyone who reads my blog feel empowered and beautiful. Planning my outfits in general is one of my favorite pastimes!
3. What are 3 Youtube channels you’re obsessed with/watch every week?
Three youtubers I watch religiously are …
HRH Collection, Raiden Quinn, And Wendy Williams backstage ❤
Love Wendy! Nobody does a talk show as real and funny as she can. Need to check out HRH Collection & Raiden Quinn. New things to watch, yay!
4. Who are your top 3 fashion/style influences?
My top 3 fashion influencers happen to be all women. I just find these women to be very seductive and beautiful. Olivia Palermo, influences me because of her sophisticated personality. LANA DEL REY! One of my favorites because of her pure passion for experiencing love intensely. And Beyonce of course for her fierceness. I like to think I own or share some personality traits with them lol.
I would say, you absolutely do my dear!
5. I know you’re pursuing acting. If you could work with any actor, who would it be?
There are sooo many actors I’d love to work with but I have to pick Meryl Streep solely for the reason of looking exactly like my grandmother who passed away of breast cancer. How cool would it be to fulfill my dream with a look alike of my biggest role model and the biggest actress in Hollywood.
That would be amazing! I’m so sorry about your grandmother. I miss my Grandma so much. Meryl Streep is so elegant, and I admire her versatility as an actress. I’m sure your grandma is proud of the steps you’re taking to making your dream come true!
6. What would you tell someone who is starting a Youtube & what would you tell your younger self if you could?
I would tell anyone who is just starting YouTube to first get comfortable looking and hearing yourself on camera. Love who you are and celebrate the beauty you posses because everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way.
I would tell my younger self, Everything gets better after high school. Fu** all the haters!
I couldn’t agree more…😁😂❤
I relate to Christian’s outlook on life and his love of having a creative outlet like YouTube so much. We both want to express ourselves and make our goals happen. We oroginally originally bonded over fashion, makeup, and our job. Life is funny that way, you can meet the best people in places that can really be the worst! 😉
