New Subscriber: emilynoel83

Hey everyone!

I have some very exciting news to share with you all. Recently, I found out that my all-time favorite beauty guru on YouTube, emilynoel83, started following me on Pinterest. I then took to Twitter to ask her if she knew anything about my videos, as a little while ago she started following me on Twitter. She responded with the response I've always wanted to hear from her - she's a subscriber of MINE!

So that means that now she is following me on both my Pinterest and Twitter as well as being subscribed to MY YouTube Channel! This is seriously a dream of mine come true. She has been my idol for several years. I seriously feel like she could be one of my good friends - her videos and bubbly personality have been there for me some days when I felt so alone, on days I couldn't handle anymore studying, and just when I felt like hearing what an old friend had to say.

The thing about YouTube is there's a crazy connection and bond that goes on between video makers and viewers. I'm sure most people know what I'm talking about with at least one of their favorite people to watch but if not, it's one of the hardest connections to try to put into words. You really don't know that person at all, especially not on a very personal level. But there's still a feeling of genuine friendship and trust there - it's a crazy good feeling.

I first found Emily several years ago - back when she was a little more shy and in her old apartment with her husband Tyler and cat Cupcake. They bring extra life to her videos!

What was so special to me was because she hadn't gained as many subscribers as she has today, (around 427,000 last time I checked!) it was easier to talk to her on a much more personal, one-to-one, basis. I came to have a certain amount of trust in her and gave personal messaging her through YouTube a try. It worked! We actually had conversations a couple times back and forth. I told her how much I loved her videos and asked her advice on how to start making makeup videos. (This was back before I even had my MakeupByLaurenAnne channel! Crazy, right?!)

Emily, if you're reading this, (first of all yay!) I want to say thank you for being you. Thank you for helping me gain the courage to start making makeup videos which I have now made over 600 of, I believe, between both my channels. You're such an inspiration and you have a heart of gold. Thank you for literally making one of my dreams come true by being a fan of mine! That means more than you could ever imagine. I could only hope to meet you in person someday and hopefully become good friends. That would be the ultimate dream come true!

Now that the story has been told, here are some pictures as proof of this wonderfulness!

Here's a screenshot of her Twitter "About Me" section - I've circled where it says she follows me. :)

Here's the email I received saying she's following ALL my boards on Pinterest. :) *photo from my Instagram* 

Lastly, here's our conversation on Twitter. I can't explain how thrilled I was when I read her reply!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by to read this blog post, lovelies! xoxo

Remember to have a positive day! :)
