It’s nearly Tuesday, and you all know what that means…
‘Tis the season for Comic Sans Valentine’s Day cards, anatomically incorrect hearts, and every shade of red known to man. Are you single, taken, or somewhere in-between? Well, worry not! Regardless of your relationship status on Facebook, your faves have got you covered this week with some truly excellent videos that might even beat out the joy of having an entire package of Love Hearts to yourself.
On to the videos!
Lookbook No. 1 | Not Your Valentine – Lucy Moon
Looking for some Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration that drips with bad-assery and independence? Like losing yourself in some chill tunes? Look no further than Lucy Moon‘s debut lookbook, which will be sure to capture your heart (and those extra banknotes in your purse).
It’s cool, collected, and carefully composed – everything you’d expect from a Lucy Moon video transposed into the fashion world. We’re just hoping this isn’t the last we’ll see of her wardrobe!
Ashens Valentines Special 2017 – ashens
YouTube is never short of holiday specials, from Christmas to St. Patrick’s Day, but we guarantee you that this one from Stuart Ashen definitely belongs in a category all its own. It plays like you’d expect from an Ashens unboxing, just this time with arguably more hearts and an increased feeling of crippling loneliness. Cool!
We’ll try not to give too much away, but be prepared for some high quality handcuffs and a rather saucy diamond ring.
Moving On and Getting Over – redheadabroad
Don’t you just hate saying goodbye? Seriously, whoever said that goodbyes are just see-you-laters clearly didn’t have to part with friends from an entirely different country. But with a unique history of travelling, Erika Felton could probably call herself an expert in goodbyes, and this week she’s relaying some of her know-how.
It’s a video that’s both candidly comical and real, because we’ve been with Erika through her travels and seen her say goodbye continuously to both people and places. She reminds us to just let it happen, to not force sadness or anger, while reminding us that it’s okay to experience those feelings should they crop up. If anything, just breathe! Goodbye means something new is just around the corner.
Why I’m Not Successful | Weekly Nonsense – I read books in nightclubs
Everyone loves a good video they can identify with, nodding along and internally shouting “SAME” every 30 seconds. That title falls on Jonny Vickers this week, as he articulates his struggles with his idea of success and the reasons why he feels like he hasn’t achieved it yet.
From biting off more than we can chew to having a shorter attention span than an actual goldfish, Jonny’s conversation is widely applicable to all of us who fall short of our goals. We’d definitely recommend checking out the comments on this one, where viewers are already offering tips on how they avoid procrastination. Our second recommendation is to watch until the very end – you don’t want to miss that dance move.
Baking with Layton (Also Cayleigh Maloye) – Daniel J. Layton
Yes, you read right! The world’s balance has been rightly restored and the birds are singing their hearts out alongside the windows of the TenEighty office, all because Daniel J. Layton has brought back Baking with Layton (this time, with Cayleigh Maloye).
What better way to start off your Valentine’s week than with cranberry, puff pastry, and so much Camembert?! We mean, studies do show that an increased cheese intake is positively correlated to one’s mood on Valentine’s Day. As least, we’re hoping it is… Regardless, we’ll be sitting in the corner with our cranberry and Camembert pinwheels all day, thank you very much.
And because we’re feeling extra generous this week…
Will Darbyshire‘s latest video has already captured our hearts, both the real ones and the candy variety. Arcades, skateboarding and frolicking at the beach? Sign us all up for a California winter, please!
To be honest, we’re not entirely sure what’s going on in Jonti ‘Weebl’ Picking‘s latest video, but that hasn’t stopped us from making a point of showing it to everyone within a 20-foot radius. That means it must be good, right?
Diving into the depths of 1990s Nintendo magazines is none other than the king of all that is whimsical and nostalgic, PJ Liguori. We’re with you Peej: all parents’ attics should have warnings against the extreme nostalgia their contents contain.
