I’m sure everyone has a list as long as one of those medieval scrolls, but here are my current GIRL CRUSHES:
JESSIE (SUNBEAMSJESS) BEAUTY/FASHION YOUTUBER
Jess is total FASHION GOALS. She’s one of the most beautiful people on this earth in my opinion, and her style is very changeable. She changes it up between sporty/casual, TopShop sheek and upper class-y. She is one of my favourite YouTube bloggers, specialising in Hauls and Lookbooks. She vlogs occasionally, and does beauty/sit down videos too.
Her accent is the best ever. She is English, currently residing in Edinburgh for University. Her parents are a Doctor and a Lawyer, respectively, so even though she does make profits from YouTube, she is also blessed with family money. Her boyfriend is a Photography student and films her Lookbooks for her, so they are always framed and photographed super beautifully. I found one of my favourite songs from one of her Lookbooks- ‘Jaigantic’ by Tora. I thank you for that Jess. ♥ Jess is that perfect combination of edgy and girly. She has piercings all along her ears as well a nose ring. (She’s a constant reminder of how much I want one.) She also has a large tattoo on her back which you rarely see in her videos, but she has shown a couple of times as well as an infinity symbol on her side ribs and a small word on her arm reading ‘loved.’ Her jewellery is minimal but she’s always wearing her ‘thirteen rings.’
What can I say- I bloody love her. SUNBEAMSJESS on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/sunbeamsjess
CARA DELEVINGNE MODEL/ACTRESS
Cara is one of the most popular people…probably in the world at the moment. She rocketed through the ranks of a modelling career, being the face of Burberry and working for Chanel. She’s best friends with Kendall Jenner and just did a Chanel campaign/short film/music video with Pharrell in which she showed the world that alongside being one of the hottest humans ever, being a smashing model and wiggling her way into acting SHE CAN ALSO SING?! Life is a cruel mistress.
The best thing about Cara (aside form her eyebrows) is how she makes it so clear that she is a normal human being. She’s an absolute weirdo, and it’s beautiful. She can go from surely-youre-not-real sexy to the complete dork she really is in under a second.
I adore Cara’s morals- just as a human. She is big on LGBT rights, being bi-sexual herself (though you should be big on equality no matter who you are) and she is just one of those people who really resonate with everything I believe in. ♥ AND YES- she is making her way into the world of acting! She is playing a small part, as a mermaid (perfect) in PAN which is coming out in the next couple of months. I am a huge fan of Peter Pan so I’m VERY EXCITED. And as any fan of Cara, John Green or Young Adult Fiction will know- she is playing the role of Margo Roth Spiegelman in the film adaption of John Green’s novel Paper Towns.
I had mixed emotions when I saw the announcement on Twitter- as I’m a big fan of both but I had never seen Cara in an acting role before and Margo is written as a short curvy Jewish girl with shorter brown hair. A lot of people had issues with her being cast as a leggy british model. HOWEVER John Green tweeted his appreciation, saying that Cara blew everyone away in her audition, and that she really understood the character of Margo. Gotta trust the author. He’s always been one of my favourites since before everyone knew his name from The Fault in Our Stars, so I hold his opinion pretty highly. I also love their friendship. It’s like worlds colliding for me, and I bloody ship that friendship!
Go follow Cara on social media. She’s great. You know what to do.
KATHRYN PRESCOTT ACTRESS/PHOTOGRAPHER Kathryn is popular from her role as Emily Fitch in Skins, second generation. That’s where I found her, and instantly, in my head, she was my girlfriend as well as Naomi’s. She’s now a Photographer and playing the role of Carter in the show Finding Carter.
I think Kathryn was my first proper girl crush. ♥ I was instantly obsessed with Skins when the first season came out in high school, I got all my friends on to it and recently my younger sister watched it all and I remembered how much I bloody love it. It’s depressing as all hell but it holds a special place in my heart, especially Emily & Naomi’s relationship.
I’ve only just started Finding Carter, and I try to follow what she does in the world of Photography, but unfortunately she’s not big on social media. I follow Megan however. 🙂 (Her twin sister.) Ah Kathryn. If only you liked girls in the real world, then we could fall in love.
ZOE SUGG (ZOELLA) BEAUTY/VLOGGER YOUTUBER
Zoe is one of the biggest YouTubers at the moment! If you’re into YouTube vloggers- you know who she is. She just turned 25 and she lives in Brighton, England with her boyfriend Alfie (PointlessBlog on YouTube.) Zoe and Alfie quickly became one of the YouTube community’s favourite couples. They both have accomplishments beyond their many subscribers. (Zoe has almost 8 million.) She released a range of beauty products in 2014 including a bath fizzer, a candle, a body wash and a body mist, as well as the Young Adult Fiction novel ‘Girl Online.’ Yes, of course I bought & read the book. It’s very teenage-y and cute!
Not to mention TWO Teen’s Choice Awards. Clearly, she is very loved.
Zoe mainly uploads beauty and fashion videos on her main channel, but her second channel is my favourite, where she vlogs sporadically and lets you in on her daily life with her friends, Alfie and their pug Nala.
She is my favourite person to watch, as she is so beautiful and relatable. One of the things that makes her so relatable is the fact that she openly states her troubles with anxiety and panic attacks. A lot of young people struggle with this, and occasionally don’t even understand it until it is explained or related to them. ♥
Zoe also took part in the Great British Bakeoff for Red Nose Day aaaaaand, her and Alfie just announced that they will be the first YouTubes with wax figures made of them in Madame Tussards! Team Internet really is taking over the world.
She’s so down to earth, modest, and real. She’d rather stay in than go to a big party, three of her best friends are mums, and she’s constantly singing disney songs. I just wish that when/if I ever meet her, it’s a bit more natural and less like the many crazy teenage fans she gets every time she leaves her house. It’s still weird to me that I’ve been into YouTube bloggers since I was fifteen, and now, they actually ARE celebrities. It seems like the best job in the world- but especially for those like Zoe & Alfie- it can be a bit nuts, getting to the stage where fans find out where they live and go and wait outside their house. Not cool. C’mon world, use your brain!
All in all- I love team internet. Especially you, Zoe. You’re one of my inspirations, both in style and attitude.
