5 YEAR YOUTUBE ANNIVERSARY!!!

Hello and Happy Friday, Loves!
So today as I was getting ready to meet up with my sister-in-law for a fun little spa day and lunch, I texted one of my friends to tell her happy birthday. I then realized not only was it her birthday, but that today is also my 5 year YouTube anniversary!!!
And my face looked like this...


I would seriously never remember that exact date if it were just any random day, but since it falls on her birthday, I always remember it! It was really a surreal feeling. I absolutely cannot believe it has been that long.
When I uploaded my first video, I had no idea it would become what it has. This fun hobby of mine has turned into so much more for me. It's truly changed my life. YOU guys have truly changed my life.

This post feels very "giveaway-ish", but there's none of that going on here. Just little ol' me saying thanks.  I'll try to do something like that soon- But most of you guys know my philosophy on giveaways and how they really work. To me, they're not really that big of a "thank you" for you guys. They really just drive more traffic to my videos or blog. So I don't do it for that reason. I really like doing things that will actually benefit you guys. Unfortunately, giveaways only benefit maybe 5 of you (at the most) out of almost 700 THOUSAND subscribers.  Which lets just be honest... You guys know if I could give you guys one of everything I ever talk about in videos each and every time, I totally would and it would make me the happiest ever. But that isn't really possible...haha  That's basically why I rarely do those.

So I just wanted to say thank you. Nothing fancy or showy, just simply, thank you. Thank you for all of your support and kind words, all of the comments that brighten my day and have brought me more joy, smiles, and laughter than you will ever know.

You guys are awesome and basically rock my world.

  2. I watch your videos from the beginning. Thanks to you I got really good at applying my makeup, picking out clothes and accessories and who knows maybe I will soon redo our house ;).

    You are a rare talent and an fantastic teacher. I hope you will continue doing your videos for many years. Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge and experience.

    XOXO

  3. Tiffany, you are an amazing person! I love all of your videos. Stuff that really pertains to beauty and fashion. There are so many youtubers out there nowadays that do more videos of just weird stuff rather than the tutorials that they claim is their main focus. Thank you so much for everything that you do. Congratulations!

  7. Congratulations!!! I truly hope there is 5 more years. Your videos are some of my favorites. I am having a mini celebration by watching some older videos lol.

    And I do not blame you for not doing any giveaway. I have noticed that they basically bring in new people and then once the giveaway is over people unsubscribe. Not very cool of them. Random side note: I despise it when gurus do those 500 dollar collab giveaways..I appreciate them but at the same time there is always one or two girls that I don't like their videos. Then I end up not entering some amazing giveaway because I won't subscribe just for a giveaway.

  9. See, this is why I continue to watch you. Because your videos are not filled with sponsored crap or numerous giveaways. Instead, they are all truthful and honest makeup/fashion advice. Also, almost very product you have mentioned has worked for me...in fact, I just picked of the Beauty Bite lipstick in Fig today and guess what? I love it!
    Happy anniversary :) Please continue to do what you do.

  12. You're definitely my favorite "beauty guru" hands down and your tutorials, hauls, OOTDs, and even design posts are always something I look for in my queue on YouTube. Can't wait for the next five years <3

  13. Love all hour videos. I have leared so much from you. And bought most of everything that you love and recommend :) so glad I discovered you on YouTube.

  14. Yay, congrats for your huge accomplishment! After watching a bunch of your videos, I have two really random questions.
    1) I am curious as to how often you wash your makeup brushes - what soap (if any) do you use?
    2) What makeup/techniques would you suggest for people who have some freckles around the nose and cheek area that want a natural look. They always seem to get covered up and I end up feeling like my makeup is caked on. (Recently, I’ve tried Smashbox bb cream, Clinique tinted moisturizer and bare minerals foundation) and nothing seems to make me look like I don’t have makeup on.

    Thank you!!

  15. Tiffany, I would love to see your first video but haven't been able to locate it :/ Would you please post a link? I'm having to post this as
    "anonymous" because I can't remember my Google password :/ but I'm not some really creepy old guy. Sorry :/ I love your videos and I especially love to see what you are doing in your house. You have a wonderful style. Happy 5th Anniversary!

  23. Congratulations Tiffany! I found your channel less than a year ago and been hooked ever since. I just love, love, love your tutorials, they're clear and easy to follow. I've tried a few of them with fantastic outcome and can't wait to try some more in the future. Also, I've got tips for some fantastic products that will be in my makeup bag forever.

  26. You have truly inspired me so much since I started watching you! It would be simple to let it all get to your head, so the fact that you remain humble throughout all of this unexpected fame is what makes you so beautiful!

  30. I stumbled upon your account when I was first trying to learn how to apply eyeliner a few years ago. I had just decided to make a little foray into cosmetics, and since that first viewing I've been a loyal fan! You've taught me so much -- not just makeup application, but also what to look for in products and to cultivate my own sense of what I want makeup-wise. Of course I've bought products you've recommended, but you've also helped me figure out how to make my own decisions with products. We may not have the same style -- I almost never accessorize for one thing -- but I love yours and it's definitely encouraged me to embrace my own particular path. Thank you! It's belated, but congratulations on five years; I'm excited to be watching for the next five!

  35. Happy 5th Tiffany! Since you live in Atlanta, I have a couple questions about life there. I would really love to go to Emory, but when I visited last spring, it seemed like the campus was cut off by highway. Is this really the case? Also, while walking around downtown with my dad in the afternoon, we both felt really unsafe. It's really disappointing because everything about Emory is perfect except I'm not so sure about Atlanta. I would really appreciate if you responded! Thanks, and congratulations!

  36. Congrats, Tiffany! I have been watching your videos since you started out five years ago. You are one of the few Gurus I always go back to. You seem like a really nice, down to earth person and you should stay that way. Don't get too caught up in your fame like some other YT Gurus do. I've noticed some think they are A List celebrities. You, on the other hand, are sweet and genuine and that's what people love about you.

    Keep up the good work. :) <3
