I Met Fleur DeForce!

I met Fleur and Mike

I think the title of my post says it all. I met Fleur DeForce! Yes, that Fleur DeForce.  The YouTube beauty guru sensation who has over a million subscribers, now has her own false eyelash line, a makeup line, and is a published author.  To many of you, this is probably not a big deal, and in truth, it’s not. However, let me explain why Monday night had me fan-girling like a 15 year old at a One Direction concert.

Fleur’s YouTube channel is one of the first ones I found when I started watching beauty girls on YouTube 5 or so years ago. I have been watching her ever since.  I love her accent (she’s from the UK), her knowledge, her style, and her amazing personality that I could only hope was her real personality and not just a staged thing.  Through her videos she talks beauty and fashion, took her viewers along as she planned her wedding, vlogs daily life in the DeForce (not their real last name, obviously..or maybe not obviously) household with her husband Mike, and all of their fur babies (3 dogs and 2 cats), and talks to her subscribers like we are all her friends.

Personally, even as an almost 29 year old woman, I look up to Fleur.  She has such grace, style, beauty (both natural and when she’s all glammed up), along with making her passion for the beauty industry her (incredibly successful) career accidentally (thanks to YouTube), and she has a great marriage to a man that supports her crazy YouTube related endeavors, and she’s the mom to adorable fur-babies.  As a relatively newly married woman (1.5 years) longing for a fur-baby of my own, with a blog and channel that I’d love to make a for real career, I admire Fluer and her success greatly.
