    My top 10 channels to watch on Youtube.

    I started to write this post before everything started to go down with the Covid19. Since then, I decided to dust it off and finish it. The world is a strange and scary place at the moment and a lot of people will have more spare time than normal. Youtube can be a bit of an escape, I honestly can lose hours on youtube. I probably watch more youtube than normal television. So here is a round-up of some of my favourite youtube accounts. In no particular order. Make Up Mouse Heather is really such a breath of fresh air in the youtube beauty community. There is just something so…
