I decided to write this post after watching some Youtube videos this morning, if anyone has come across Nicole Arbour’s ‘Dear Fat People’ video, you’ll have also come across multiple response videos. I watched Nicole’s video and while it didn’t upset me, it really upset many people while it angered me. I’m not going to link her video because I don’t want to give her anymore attention than she’s already getting.
I did come across a response video by Kendall Rae, one of my favourite youtubers.
Kendall has suffered with an eating disorder in her life and has been pretty open about it on her youtube channel. She posts incredible videos about body positivity and more people should know of her channel, she is definitely someone I would want my younger sister to look up to.
Another Youtuber who I believe makes videos about things that really matter, not that fashion and beauty don’t matter, I just feel that these videos can really make a difference and help people with tough issues. Sarah Rae Vargas is another one of my favourite Youtubers, she is a gorgeous girl and has two beautiful kids that she often includes in her videos. Sarah has a series on her channel titled ‘Let’s Talk About Sex’ something I think is extremely important.
Her videos are informative and not serious, it is not like a Sex Ed lesson in school, her demeanour and the way she presents herself really put the viewers at ease and I believe the videos are really helpful.
A Youtuber I really enjoy watching that makes videos in a different style than the previous two but I still believe her videos make a difference is MyMakeupPerspective and especially her health channel MyHealthPerspective. Laura has recently gone on through a lifestyle change and has become extremely healthy, going to the gym, eating great and has lost weight in doing so. There are so many videos on Youtube lately promoting ‘Quick & Easy Weightloss’ and as someone who has also recently changed my lifestyle, eating and exercise habits these videos infuriate me.
There is no quick and easy fix to losing weight correctly, if you did not gain the weight over night/the course of a week, you cannot lose all that weight in that small amount of time. It takes time and dedication, something Laura makes known in her videos and also on her snapchat (LaurasViews). I really recommend her channels if you are into beauty, fitness or if you just want to watch an incredibly amazing and funny Irish Youtuber!
While it is not a long long list, if I listed every single favourite Youtuber we would be here for years and the post would be pages long, these are three Youtubers I would like to recommend, while Kendall and Sarah both are heavy on body positivity, Sarah’s sex positive series is something that sets her channel apart and Laura’s love of health and fitness is inspiring. Thanks so much for reading!
