One of my favorite ways to wind down in the evening is to watch a couple of YouTube videos. Other than a couple of football games which David has watched recently, I don’t think we’ve had our television on for the past 6 or 8 weeks. I do, however, enjoy several YouTube channels which I thought I’d share with you.
Cassandra Aarssen has a very down-to-earth and engaging style. She has lots of videos on decluttering, organizing, decor, DIY and cleaning. I am especially impressed with her theory about the four types of organizing styles. If you’d like to find out what your style is, you can take this test:
If you take the free test, I’d love to hear which one you are so come back here and leave me a comment.
I aspire to be someone who “has it all together” and my role model for this goal is Jen. Her house is beautiful, clean and organized, she cooks great meals, AND she goes to the gym every day.
For a glimpse of her morning routine take a look at this video:
I found Phyllis when I searched for 1950s meals and I’ve been a fan since the first video I watched. I can’t quite put my finger on just what it is I love about her so you’ll just need to see for yourself. And if I ever start sharing videos of myself cooking it will be because Phyllis makes it seem possible.
4. Amy Landino
Amy Landino’s videos contain extremely helpful information on productivity and related topics. And she’s adorable!
Jennifer is the author of the Madame Chic books. I did a four-part review of the first book in the series which you can see here. Her videos cover topics such as etiquette, dressing well, home care, and her popular 10-item wardrobe posts.
I ran across Diane’s channel when I was planning to write about The FlyLady. Her approach to the FlyLady system makes it seem realistic and doable. She’s quite bubbly and fun to watch, too. Plus she shares interesting tidbits about life in Denmark and hygge. Here is her 5-Day Self-Care Challenge:
Sophia of My Great Challenge is one of those people I wished lived next door because I think we could be good friends. She’s French and drinks at least 2-3 cups of Earl Grey per day. Yep, we need to be friends. Her decluttering videos are really motivating, too.
I’ve taken to watching this one most mornings because it puts me in such a calm and positive state of mind. While I’m neither a vegan nor a minimalist, Sadia exudes such a lovely, welcoming vibe that I’m utterly charmed by her content. The videos are also beautifully filmed and edited.
9. Sixty and Me
This one is a fairly new addition for me. It’s aimed at women age 60 and older. While I still have a few years before I am 60, much of the content is relevant to me. The host, Margaret Manning, starts each episode by sharing what tea she is drinking that morning so you know that resonates with me. I’m also finding myself almost looking forward to that stage of life from watching this channel.
And finally, the one I watch every single day. I save this daily vlog to watch as part of my nighttime routine because it never fails to make me smile. My daughter is the one who got me watching this about a year and a half ago. It’s the daily vlog of an Irish family living in England. They have four of the most adorable children imaginable and they recently purchased a period home which they are renovating.
What are YOUR favorite YouTube channels? I’d love to hear about them. Leave me a comment and I’ll check them out.
