My Favourite YouTubers

updated June 2021

Even though I’ve limited my time on social media, one app I don’t want to delete off my phone is YouTube. Sometimes I just want to watch short YouTube videos to unwind instead of movies or TV shows. These are the channels I recommend:

Claire Reads Books and Jack Edwards — BookTubers, if you want to know what’s hot in literature.

Cody Ko, Kurtis ConnerDrew Gooden and Danny Gonzalez , Jarvis Johnson — comedic commentary channels.

Luke AlexanderD’Angelo WallaceTiffany Ferg, Smokey Glow, Hailey Elizabeth, Ibrahim Kamit, Stephanie Lange — Internet culture commentary channels on more serious topics.

Chai tii and Broey Deschanel — film and pop culture analysis.

Nicki Positano — Vlogs to show what life is really like in the Amalfi Coast. Those 500 steps she has to walk just to go home – oof.

Safiya Nygaard — Weird experiments.

Micarah Tewers — Sewing and chaotic DIYs.

How to Cook That — Desserts and debunking food hacks.

Downshiftology — Healthy recipes

The Icing Artist — Cake decorating.

Schirmer Shoots — The best van tour I’ve seen for #vanlife.

Tiny Acorn — I’m too lazy to thrift, so I live vicariously through Erica. She finds amazing pieces.

Kait Bos — Kait reviews a lot of pieces from Doen, Christy Dawn, and Sezane, which are up my alley.

Michelle Phan — OG Youtube beauty guru.

Crazy Russian Hacker — When I want to turn my brain off, I’ll watch this guy test random gadgets. He’s enthusiastic about literally everything.

Lone Fox, The Sorry GirlsAlexandra Grater , DIY by Niky Foster — Interior design and DIY decor Youtubers filling my HGTV hole.

Anna Bey and Jamila Musayeva — Etiquette tips for women.

Two Set Violin — Young people like classical music too.

Fast Food Cuisine — A French channel I watch on to passively keep up with my language skills. Sometimes I also watch Cyprien.

Our Tribe of Many — The logistics of running a family of 10 and counting. Maybe the only family vlog channel that’s not exploiting their children?
