May Favorites 2016 | Beauty Cocktails | Sony a5100 | Fake RC6 Experience

Hey lovies! In this favorites video I talk about my most loved beauty products and beauty cocktails (combos) for the month of May. I also include a little review of the Sony a5100 and some tech gear I picked up. I realize this video is a month late, I filmed this before I left for Creator Day and I've been driving back and forth + family matters with not much time to edit. I apologize and I am trying my best to get back on track. Thank you for understanding <3 p="">

I do not have a Sony a5100 at the moment. I explain why in a periscope here. I am not able to buy a replacement from Bestbuy!

Creator Day Houston 2015 LAST YEAR at the House of Dereon

Hey lovies! Before I get into my content with this year's YouTube Creator Day I wanted to share my experience with last year's, the first year they were running them.

I attended Creator Day Houston, #CreatorDayHOU, in August 2015 at The House of Dereon downtown Houston. Yes, Bey's "house"! The event kicked off with an intro from Matthew Knowles. It was so surreal to be in a room with ACTUAL people from YouTube (they're not robots!) and like-minded creators. The event coordinators were from different YouTube departments sharing their knowledge on growing your channel with topics covering user experience, collaborations, and general tidbits on YouTube. They were really passionate and shared some information that you literally would have to ask an employee at YouTube to know the definitive answer. This day also included interactive activities, a guest appearance by Bunny Meyer (grav3yardgirl), refreshments and a happy hour for networking. I went home with a page full of YouTube stickers to place all over my gear, a red leather bound YouTube Journal, a YouTube pen and bursting with motivation.

This day was extremely eye opening and I made a few connections with similar creators that still exist today. If you want to attend one of these, which I highly recommend at least for networking, check your dashboard frequently for invitations to Creator Day. Events are now finished for the season, but click here where it takes to the registration where you can fill in your location to try to get one near you. Requirements now call for at least 1000 subscribers to limit attendees to a more serious crowd in need of a boost to get a channel going.

I am working on my vlog from this year's Creator Day and Content Lab so please check back on my YouTube channel for that once I get it all nice and pretty.

❥ What I'm Wearing
LIPS: Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Craft*
