Five Youtubers to Watch Instead of Studying

Do not lie to yourself, every person has been there.  Every Collegiette comes to a time in her life when instead of doing her necessary studying or completing that impending paper, she chooses to go onto Youtube and watch make up tutorials or videos of silly cats.  Perfectly reasonable behavior.  However, I am here to guide you on your procrastination journey and recommend some excellent rabbit holes to travel down.

When deciding who made the cut, I chose from my personal favorite channels who have under 750,000 subscribers (as of writing this article).  Although not small, these channels are often overlooked in favor of the Michelle Phans and Zoellas (who I also love!). So the following list contains bigger channels that do not always get the recognition I believe they deserve.

Jessiepaege

This Youtuber is not even college age, but she has the giggly personality and DIY-prowess to make her an easy watch for any Collegiette. This girl is seriously good with a DIY.  From clothes to band merch to room decorations, jessiepaege can seemingly make anything.

Jackie Wyers

A Youtuber who can bring together hair and makeup perfectly while singing, is hard to find, but somehow Wyers is able to do all that and more on her channel.  She combines beauty with her musical talents to offer a fresh take on the beauty guru mold.

Shameless Maya

Few women are as inspirational and optimistic as this Youtuber.  A lifestyle guru and epic fashionista, Shameless Maya offers the best blend of beauty and lifestyle advice that a channel could provide. She even has videos about eating healthy that actually make the lifestyle seem enticing. Goodbye Dorritos, hello pita.

Simply_kenna

For a woman who is completely original and speaks to the flower child in us all, this Youtuber is the doe-eyed DIYer with the cutest pet rabbit.  Simply_kenna combines an earthy aesthetic with fun and easy DIYs to assuage each Collegiette’s inner-hipster. Perfect not only for her DIY and beauty inspiration, Simply_kenna’s outlook and soft-spoken demeanor is lifespo as well.

TheCraftyGemini

This mother and avid DIYer may not be the first Youtube channel a Collegiette might look for, but her craft walkthroughs are some of the best I have ever seen.  As you have probably noticed from this list, I love DIYs, and this woman gives the clearest and easiest instructions on a variety of crafts.  From quilting to farming, this woman can seemingly do everything.
