Hello and welcome to today’s She Hearts Sunday. This week I have a tonne of great hearts to share with you, after what has been a particularly inspiring week of discoveries. As well as four, yes four new Youtuber finds, there’s also plenty of music, a nail tutorial and more inspiration than you can shake a proverbial stick at. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
She Hearts…StyleFilmer/Style 2 Bones
On recently scouting out ‘new’ Youtubers (new to me anyway), I came across Dominique’s great channel StyleFilmer, which compliments her equally awesome blog Style2Bones. Dominique’s style is super grungy, really out-there, just plain unapologetic and well…ballsy. I can’t imagine many people rocking, or quite frankly pulling off some of the looks she puts together so amazingly, but her originality is what makes her a must-watch.
She Hearts…Daft Punk’s Coachella Teaser
As if I didn’t want to be at Coachella already, then Daft Punk went and played their first teaser for their new album before the Yeah Yeah Yeahs came onstage. As one of the biggest Daft Punk fans that has ever lived, I actually cannot wait another second for their new album, and so have just been playing ‘Get Lucky’ over and over to get me through until the 20th May when Random Access Memories will be released. It’s gonna be a good one.
The second Youtuber mention of the day goes to Caffaccino whose videos I came across right around the same time as StyleFilmer. Cath puts together great lookbooks, hauls and styling videos and her recent Celine tee styling video was particularly relevant to me seeing as I have the same one and haven’t worn it yet! If you need more style inspiration and want to mix up your wardrobe a bit then let Cath inspire you.
She Hearts…Cartoon Nails
When this little video popped up in my recommended bar, it couldn’t have been more on the money. If there’s one thing I love, it’s a comic-inspired look, so these cartoon style nails are right up my street. This tutorial from cutepolish shows you how to get that straight-out-of-a-comic look on your nails, so you can spend your days looking like your favourite protagonist without a huge amount of effort. It’s not convoluted, and although it takes a steady hand, this is one tutorial I’ll definitely be trying in the coming weeks.
It’s official, Alexa Losey of Smokeypinkleopard on Youtube, makes the most amazing lookbooks. Hands down. The dreamy, aspirational videos make you immediately want to snap up everything Alexa’s wearing and there’s always so much time and effort gone into making them. My particular favourite of late is Alexa’s Coachella lookbook which sees her strutting her stuff in a balloon-filled field, which completely reminds me of Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl In the World’ video. For out-of-this-world inspiration check out Alexa’s channel now.
She Hearts…Phoenix’s New Album News
They’ve just played Coachella and now they’re bringing out a new album…could it get any better for Phoenix right now? The French band are releasing their brand new album Bankrupt! on Monday. I’m already loving their first single from the album, ‘Entertainment’ and I’m pretty sure the foursome are going to live up to their past four albums, which I have loved and played to death in equal measure. I’m having a bit of a renaissance with ‘It’s Never Been Like That’ right now, so this new release couldn’t come at a better time for me. Excited doesn’t quite cut it.
Today’s last heart is also my most recent Youtube find, (and obsession). Bec of Fashionfidelity051 has a great channel featuring hauls, lookbooks, vlogs, you name it. Her latest video, a haul and lookbook from PLNDR, is a particular favourite as I would geuninely wear every single thing in the video and I’m trying so hard not to order the entire lot from PLNDR for myself. Particularly the Cheap Monday Monolit Jodhpurs…mega swoon. Top marks for the picks Bec.
That’s it for today’s She Hearts Sunday, I hope you found something in there that might become a new heart of yours. Let me know what you’ve been loving this week and don’t forget to let me know what you think of today’s picks by leaving me a comment below or tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time…
