Hi – I am back with another interview today! I did the previous one with a youtuber I really appreciate, Youjin and gave you a little sneak peak of the interview with Nuria Ma! Nuria is a 16 years old girl living in Spain (she was actually born in Spain, then moved to China when she was 5 and then moved back to Spain 3 years later). I am really in love with her content, she posts lifestyle, beauty and fashion related videos with a very cool and polished aesthetic. It makes me think of the Youtuber ‘Kinda Cool’, they both have this cool and soft vibe (and they are both so pretty). Anyways, I am beyond happy to introduce you to Nuria Ma!

Hi – I am in the best mood today because first of all, I am back on the blog and secondly, I had the chance to interview two of my favorite youtubers, Youjin유진 and Nuria Ma, I truly can’t believe it, I am just so happy to share with you their interviews!! So today I am introducing you to Youjin (유진), a 17 year old Korean American living in the United States. She defines herself as ‘a typical high school student’ but she makes youtube videos and that’s why she is today featured on the blog!
I’m definitely an introvert but I do love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy meeting new people but I prefer being in my room watching youtube and netflix a little bit more haha.
Her videos are fashion, food, beauty and lifestyle related and I just love how she does everything with calm and softness. If I have to use one word to describe her channel it’s definitly ‘SOFT’. It is just so nice to sit at your desk and watch her videos. So keep reading if you want to know more about Youjin!
Julie (me!!)- Can you describe your youtube channel?
Youjin- At first, I wanted to make beauty and fashion related videos because those were all the rage back then on Youtube. I wanted to become a « beauty guru. » Unfortunately, I easily lost interest while creating beauty content because I realized that they’re not what I’m the best at. Now, I mostly make casual vlogs with beauty/fashion videos once in awhile! In the future, I want to create more fashion contents and of course, create more professional, polished vlogs.
J- What prompted you to start your channel? And when?
Y- I’ve been obsessed with Youtube the moment I discovered it in 2012 as a 5th grader in elementary school. I loved that you could literally put up whatever you wanted and that you could communicate with so many people around the world! After watching Youtube for years, I made my first channel in 2014 but didn’t officially start until beginning of 2018!
J- What/Who inspires you the most (it can be anything, from music, to art, person, photography…)
Y- I never really had a role model in my life but recently, I found a group of people that really inspire and motivate me: BTS. I know that BTS blowing up all over the world with crazy fangirls but I look up to them as role models than as a « Kpop Idol. » It’s so crazy to think about how 7 passionate people with same goals came together to push themselves above and beyond their original goals and limits. Their achievements always inspire me to use my passion to push myself and others to become THE best version of myself.
J- What are your passions in life (you are a dancer, is there anything else you love?)
Y- Yes, I am a dancer but to be honest I wouldn’t say that dance is my passion.
I’m passionate about creating.
I’m passionate about creating something that is entertaining and expressive. And dance is just one of the things that fits under that passion. My main passions right now are videography and maybe fashion because I love expressing myself through what I wear!
J- What is it like to be korean and to live in america? Do you miss Korea?
Y- I don’t think there’s anything special as a Korean living in America. I spent most of my life in America so America feels more like home to me than Korea but I do miss Korea!
J- What do you love the most about korea? What is the best thing in Korea you don’t have in the US?
J- How do you feel about having almost 165K followers on youtube and seeing the number growing each day? Do you interact a lot with them? What is the best part about having a community like this?
Y- It’s honestly so surreal. I’m so so thankful for every one of them. I wish I could interact with them more but I’m trying to interact with them more through youtube and instagram lives! The best part of having a community like this is that I’m always surrounded by love and support and that I’m able to use that towards making better content!
J- Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Y- I’d be 27 years old in 10 years…I hope I’m still on my Youtube grind lolol. And hopefully, I’d be settled down in a city that I love with people understand and support me no matter what!
J- What are your goals for the upcoming year?
Y- I want to take Youtube more seriously and post high quality videos consistently!
J- What are you currently studying? And where do you want to work in the future?
Y- I’m taking typical high school classes: AP Chemistry, AP calculus, US History, etc. I want to work as a freelancer/ Youtuber. I also want to own a clothing brand/business one day!
J- Who are your favorite youtubers?
Y- I love Emma Chamberlain, Hannah Meloche, Ellie Thumann, Kinda Cool, OnDo, Jenn Im, Yoo’s Beauty, Allegra Shaw, and Tatiana Ringsby!
J- Where do you dream to travel to?
Y- I’d lovee to visit Italy, Spain, Iceland, and LA and New York!
J- Do you have any project for your channel?
Y- I have more fashion contents planned for the month of November. And I plan to put up weekly vlogs in December! I’m so so excited :))
J- And finally, your go-to beauty/skincare product?
And that’s all for today’s interview, I hope you learned more about Youjin and if you haven’t seen her videos yet, check it out! 감사합니다 요진 for answering to my questions, I hope your youtube audience will grow and I truly can’t wait for your new videos to come out!

Hi- Que l’on ai beaucoup, peu de vêtements, ou plusieurs styles, on a tous un go-to outfit, une sorte d’uniforme que l’on porte quand on n’a plus d’inspiration ou tout simplement une valeur sûre dans notre dressing que l’on peut porter en tout temps.
Pour ma part ce daily uniform est composé d’une paire de Converses All Star (noires ou blanches) car se sont certainement mes chaussures préférées -elles se portent littéralement avec tout-, un jean brut droit -les levi’s sont mes préférés- et un sweat à capuche/hoodie assez large pour dormir dedans -que j’achète principalement dans des boutiques vintage ou friperies-. Lorsque je porte cette tenue je cherche plus le confort et la simplicité que le style. Je me suis rendue compte que je ne portais quasiment que du noir alors mon daily uniform est généralement composé à 60% de noir aha.
J’adapte ensuite le manteau que je porte en fonction de la saison. En hiver c’est un long manteau ou une doudoune oversized et au printemps une veste en jean.
Et vous quel est votre daily uniform?

hi – I’m back! School is taking all of my personnal time these past few weeks like i feel i’ve been working 24/7. And because i felt overhelmed i thought i could find some apps to help me having my shit together and i actually found some good ones that i’ll share with you right now!!
So first of all, succeeding in school means being organized (for me) and knowing your limit. For example, spending the whole night working for an history test because you didn’t learned it before is a waste of sleep, energy and a proof you weren’t organized (even if sometimes you just need to procrastinate). For the apps, i discovered a lot of them by reading studyblr and watching some ‘study with me’ videos (Jusuf‘s videos are just SO MOTIVATING).
LOFFEE – I talked about this app in my ‘study playlist’ post and this is a must -in my opinion- for people who like to work with music but can’t stay focused when the music has lyrics. This app has five music vibes: Morning Coffee, Early Summer, Heal, Late Night Vibe and Rainy Days and all the songs are lo fi hip hop. It really helps me to relax and focus on my homework. I also listen to it while i’m on my computer, working on some projects, writing post… My favorite playlists are definitly Late Night Vibes and Rainy Days! Or you can just go listen to my study playlist on youtube 🙂 Similar app – Study Aide
FOREST – This app is so famous among studyblr and youtubers, like i heard about it sooo many times so i had to download and try it. This app helps you to stay focused and off line for a moment. You can choose how long you want to work and just start the timer (i recommand 35mins of work and 15mins of pause but just try what’s good for you!). Everytime you are doing a ‘working session’ you plant a virtual tree through the app and it grows while you are working but if you stop the timer (by using your phone and going to another app for example) it will kill the tree. So basically, the goal is to grow as much trees as you can and create a forest that represents your ability to stay focused. The more you plant trees, the more you can unlock new features (like different tree species, etc). Similar app – FLIP, Study Timer, Study Buddy
QUIZLET – This one is a M-U-S-T (especially for languages and definitions)!! If you haven’t heard of it yet, this app allows you to create your own flashcards and helps you memorize them with some interactive games/exercises. You can also search for a particular subject and access to others’ flashcards (and you can obviously share your own flashcards with everyone, your class, your friends or just keep it to yourself!). I actually use quizlet for learning all my lanuages (english, german, korean and maybe spanish soon aha). Similar app – Cartes Mémoire (french)
NOTEBLOC – Another app I just can’t live without and that I also use for other purposes than school. Notebloc is basically a scanner in your phone. You can numerise EVERYTHING, from your notes to your drawings and with a very good quality (as long as you take a good picture and the brightness isn’t bad). It makes everything simplier for me!
MIMIND – MiMind is an app for creating mind maps. I recently downloaded it and i’m already happy with the results, it really helps you to have an overview on your subject and creating the mind map is just SO EASY like everyone can do it. You have different templates to help you, you can choose different colors, forms… and you can also share it in different formats (jpeg, png, pdf, tga, bmp…). Maybe some people will be disappointed by the ‘aesthetic’ of the app and the mind maps (really 2008, not so pretty) but you know sometimes you have to put utility before beauty.
And that’s it for today’s post, i hope i somehow managed to help you if you are struggling like me with school and that i’m not just intertaining myself here lmao ^^

Hi – OK ALORS TOUT D’ABORD THE GOLDEN CRUSH EST PASSÉ À THEGOLDENCRUSH.COM!! J’ai enfin acheté mon domaine yay. BREF.
Avoir un blog c’est interagir avec une communauté de lecteurs et de blogueurs talentueux et créer des liens IRL (in real life – dans la vie de tous les jours) et c’est comme ça que j’ai rencontré charlotte du blog Give It A Chance! Cela fait plusieurs années que je la suis et que nous communiquions à travers nos blogs et il y a quelques mois nous nous étions déjà rencontrées pour aller prendre des photos et ce connaitre un peu mieux et nous n’avions qu’une hâte, se revoir! Nous nous sommes donc revues samedi dernier et avons déjeuné chez Mata Mata (un petit café non loin du Louvre et qui est juste trooop mignon) et nous sommes allées nous balader aux tuileries, autour du Louvre, place Vendôme et bien sur un Bubble Tea à Opera (les bubble tea et moi c’est une grand histoire d’amour mmmh voilà).
Après cela nous avons fini la journée en allant dans le concept store Livin Cool qui rassemblait également des collection capsule Off-White, Supreme et tant d’autre et c’était vraiment super cool ~
Ce fût vraiment une super journée et le toast à l’avocat était juste dingue!!
Avez-vous fait des rencontres grâce aux réseaux sociaux?

Among the korean streetwear brands i love there is Nona9on. It is a YG Entertainment (Blackpink and Ikon’s company) apparel brand with a strong streetwear influence and interesting fabrics. I recently checked their website and thought i could do a (dream) wishlist, DREAM I REPEAT because the average price is around 100$ so hell no. Even though it has some really cool items and designs so you should definitly check it out! I am totally obsessed with their synthetic pieces like this raincoat or these shorts and their bags are just so SICK.
I feel like this post is more like a Nona9on selection rather than a wishlist but anyways.
What do you think of Nona9on? What is your favorite streetwear brand?
