How long have you been vlogging? I’ve been making videos consistently since June 2013 so two years now!
What inspired you to start your vlog? I always got questions on my hair, makeup, etc. on my social media so I figured it’d be super helpful to have a channel. I’ve always loved helping people so having a channel allows me to give tips to help everyone with any or all their beauty issues!
Any words of wisdom for someone considering starting a vlog? Be yourself! I know this sounds like the lamest advice. It’s a piece of advice that some people think is just a lazy response but no! Trust me. The best thing you can do is be yourself and I’ll tell you why… There’s thousands of Youtubers out there who have already ‘made it’. Nothing is going to differentiate you from them or make people want to even watch you if you aren’t offering anything different… As humans, we’re all unique and can offer something different to the world if we’re just being ourselves! Show your true personality, find your niche, and deliver it. Don’t try to be like your favorite Youtuber. Be you!
How long have you been using Magic Links? I’ve been using Magic Links for around 6 months now!
What is your favorite thing about MagicLinks? Being able to easily make links for my viewers to access the products I’m using!
What feature do you find the most useful in Magic Links? OMG the Magic Link button that you can add to your favourites bar at the top of your browser is a life saver.
What advice would you give other Magic Links users to get the most out of the program?
Best advice is to link the products you’re using at stores that are most accessible to your viewers. For example, a product may be available at both Sephora and Ulta but Ulta is only available to US viewers whereas Sephora is available to US and Canadian viewers. So you’ll want to link that product to Sephora before Ulta because you’re more likely to generate a sale.
Have any pets? We love pets here at MagicLinks! Yes! My dog Bentley! He’s a Shih Tzu & Maltese mix so he’s a Malshi 🙂
Favorite quote or mantra that you live by? Everything happens for a reason.
If you could travel anywhere tomorrow where would you go? Probably the Bahamas!
Favorite Magic Links Retailer? SEPHORA!
What is one of the best comments you have received on one of your videos? There was a comment once made by a subscriber who was really sick and going to have brain surgery the next day but she commented that my video gave her an outlet to just forget about her surgery coming up and just enjoy and be happy watching my video even if it was just for a few minutes. That was one of the most rewarding comments I’ve ever gotten!
Where is your favorite place to shop? SEPHORA! Lol
What’s the best deal you’ve scored in the past month? Getting to work with Pantene this month is one of the best deals! I’m super grateful!
