Get To Know: Nuria Ma

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!

Julie (me)- You own a youtube channel, what prompted you to start it, and when?
N- It was the summer to 6th grade when I discovered the beauty community on YouTube. I spent all of my summer watching videos and then one day, I took my iPod and started filming a night routine. I did in fact upload that, and I remember clearly that it got 14 views. I didn’t upload more after that, however I spent all my free time in my bedroom filming. So when I got a brand new laptop for my 13th birthday ( I think, it might have been my 12th birthday), I created the channel that I have today.
J- How would you describe your videos?
N- They are a mix of my life, what I like and a creative outlet, for example my vlogs documents my life (not all of it obviously) and my travels. My makeup tutorials represents the makeup looks I like and my fashion videos allows me to express myself in clothes. If that makes any sense lol

J- I love your style, what are your favorite brands currently?

N- My favourites are & other stories, COS and Topshop.
I do also enjoy some other high street fashion brands, however I cannot afford them so they are just inspiration to me.

J- What is your go to outfit?

N- For the fall time is always turtleneck, jeans, black booties and a leather jacket.

J- What kind of videos do you prefer filming?

J- Who are your favorite youtubers/bloggers?
cups

J- Who/What inspires you?

N- All the beautiful ladies mentioned above. I find motivation and inspiration when I see their hard work which makes me want to make something better.

J- What do you love the most about China? What do you have in China you don’t have in Spain?

N- I love how easy China is!! The food delivery, online purchases that arrives the next day without you having to pick it up if you are not home. And also, the people. For some reason, I find myself connecting to Chinese people better.

Get To Know: Youjin유진

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?

Y- I love Korea’s well developed public transportation system. I love how easy it is to travel all around Korea just by taking trains, subways, or trains. I also love how Korea is small, which makes it easier to visit different towns, cities in a short period of time because it is so hard to travel in the U.S.

J- What is your current playlist?
Y- In My Feelings by Drake, Paris in the Rain & I Like Me Better by Lauv, Bbibbi by IU, Star by Vinxen! ❤

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!

MY DAILY UNIFORM

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.

daily uniform

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.

THE LIST

SHOES // HOODIE // JEANS

THE INSPIRATION

 

Et vous quel est votre daily uniform?

NONA9ON – Ultimate Wishlist (even if i’m broke af)

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.

HIP SACK // BACKPACK // MINI BAG // EASY HOBO BAG

MOOD BOARD – BABY PINK

En lisant récemment l’article de Charlotte sur son moodboard cela m’a rappelé que je n’en avait pas posté depuis longtemps! Il s’agit d’un moodboard que j’ai fait l’année dernière mais que je n’ai jamais eu l’occasion de poster ici alors le voici. Je me suis fixée une règle, que tout soit de la même couleur ou du oins dans le même ton, et la couleur du jour est donc le baby pink. Le Baby Pink est pour moi une couleur qui représente la douceur, les fleurs de cerisier, le printemps et la renaissance. C’est une des couleurs que je préfère.

babypink

j’adore son côté poudré qui rend tout ce qui est de cette couleur ‘doux’ (visuellement parlant).

fait avec: paint comme toujours et des photos trouvées sur tumblr

Et vous que pensez-vous du baby pink?

Study Playlist: Lo fi Hip Hop (Vol. 1)

Hellooo – Je reviens aujourd’hui avec une study playlist. Lorsque je travaille j’ai besoin d’être dans un environnement calme et peu bruyant mais le silence complet me stresse et j’ai toujours besoin d’avoir un fond musical. Le problème c’est que la plupart des musiques que j’apprécie ont des paroles et j’ai un peu de mal à me concentrer sur ce que je fais parce que ça finis toujours en concours de playback.

MAIS il y a environ un an  j’ai découvert le lo fi hip hop et depuis je n’écoute quasiment que ça. C’est une musique d’ambiance présente sans trop l’être et avec des mélodies reposantes mais rythmées, le compromis parfait. Vous pouvez facilement trouver des playlists de lo fi de 5h sur youtube mais j’ai décidé de vous proposer MA playlist car les artistes de lo fi sont souvent oubliés et peu récompensés pour leur travail.

study lo fi playlist 1

glory days.......

BREF, voici donc ma première playlist de la série ‘Study Playlist’. Pour celle-ci j’ai eu l’idée de créer une vidéo qui regroupe toutes les musiques présentées dans cet article et que pourrez ensuite écouter quand bon vous semble! En espérant que ça vous plaise. Si c’est le cas, je vous recommande vivement une application (gratuite) que j’utilise au quotidien qui s’appelle ‘Loffee et qui entre autre propose des playlist de lo fi en fonction de thèmes et d’ambiances, comme ‘Morning Coffee’, ‘Late Night Vibe’, ‘Rainy Days’… (ma préférée avec Late Night Vibes) et qui en plus met en avant les artistes!!

Que pensez-vous du lo fi hip hop? Qu’écoutez-vous quand vous travaillez?
