Georgia Lauren Birch, Meet the YouTuber, Content Creator and Boohoo Ambassador.
Meet the 20 years old Content creator from Leicestershire, who goes to Uni in Nottingham. She creates fashion, beauty & vlogs for Heryoutube channel ‘Georgia Lauren Birch’ & also has a fashion based instagram! In her own words, 'I would love to inspire others to live their best life & not worry what others think through my content, styling together outfits for my instagram & youtube channel is my favourite hobby.'
WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND OF YOUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL? WHY AND WHEN DID YOU START?
‘I started my channel in July 2019, so almost a year ago now. I have always wanted to do a YouTube channel, I spend so much of my free time watching YouTube. I just thought I wanted to make my own content and have a place for me to do my own videos.
I already loved fashion and beauty, and I was already documenting my life on Instagram and Instagram stories, so YouTube was the perfect place to combine all of these things, as I was already vlogging. When I would go shopping I would do little hauls for my friends over Snapchat. I thought I might as well do this properly, and have a place where I can meet other people who are into the same things as me, and doing a similar thing. I honestly love YouTube so much, it has been the best thing I have ever done, and I couldn’t be happier that I started it.'
'The three main topics on my channel are beauty, fashion and lifestyle. And I probably put the most content out for fashion, so I love doing hauls, I love picking out my favourite products from websites, and sharing it with everyone. I also do beauty videos, where I do my every day makeup, different hairstyles. When I used to watch YouTube about 5 years, I would only watch beauty videos, learn how to do my makeup. So I like to put those sort of videos up there as they are fun as well. My favourite vlogs to do are holiday vlogs, it is so amazing to have the memories on your channel. So when we go on holiday I am constantly vlogging, since having my channel I have created a Lanzarote Vlog which I loved doing. I just feel like holiday vlogs are so much fun as you can look back at the memories.’
THE SUBJECTS ON YOUR CHANNEL INCLUDE FASHION, LIFESTYLE VLOGS AND BEAUTY. CAN YOU GIVE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCTS OF EACH SUBJECT?
‘With fashion, one of my favourite brands is Boohoo. I became a Boohoo ambassador about a month ago, which is so exciting and I am so grateful for the opportunity. So I do Boohoo hauls over on my channel and I post pictures on my Instagram. With beauty, my favourite products as of recently, I have just done a video on the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection, and I fell in love with these products so much. They are my favourites at the minute.’
WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR YOUTUBE VLOGGERS THAT INSPIRE YOU, AND WHY?
‘So many Youtubers inspire me, but I’d say three that stand out to me are; Elle Darby, Imogenation and Sophie & Cinzia. Elle Darby inspires me because she talks about creating the life you love, just living your dreams and not caring about what others think. That is something I feel so passionately about. Imogenation’s videos are so funny, and she talks about self-confidence and believing in yourself, I love that. Sophie & Cinzia have a joint channel, I find them so inspiring. They sit down, have a chat, and do random things. Their viewers have fallen in love with their personalities. These are my 3 biggest influencers when starting my channel, and with Imogenation and Elle Darby talk about what they want to do, which is where my inspiration came from to start my channel.’
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE THE READERS THE READERS IF THEY WANTED TO START A YOUTUBE OR VLOGGING. HOW DID YOU GAIN THE CONFIDENCE?
‘My biggest advice would for anyone wanting to start a channel or start vlogging is to just start. It sounds so simple but you don’t need any particular equipment to start, you just need a phone which I did use originally and you can edit your videos on imovie if you have a Macbook. There are other free editing softwares you can download and use. You can find your niche in time, and you find the videos you like to film as you go. In terms of confidence, I would say just have the right mindset, don’t worry what other people think, what people say. Just do it for you, if it is something you really want to enjoy, and something you are wanting to start, just do it because you wouldn’t regret it. I read the best quote that says ‘‘your fear of looking stupid is holding you back’’ I am going to live by that from now on.’
WHERE WOUD YOU LIKE YOUR YOUTUBE TO GO? WHAT ARE YOUR DREAM GOALS?
‘I feel like you can never tell what the future holds, so I don’t know where my YouTube channel will take me. All I know is I absolutely loving taking the videos, I have met so many amazing people through it, that are friends for life. I guess the big dream would be making this a career, as it is what I really love.
I always think you should try and create the life you love, and the career you love, if it is what you want to do then you should go for it. For now, I am enjoying it as a hobby, having the best time creating the content. Even if it didn’t become a full time job, the dream would be to continue to YouTube for as long as I possibly can, as it brings me so much happiness, and is where my biggest passion is, and where I focus on a lot of my time. But I am also studying at university as well, and obviously I am focusing on that as well. I am excited for summer as I can put all my focus into my YouTube channel as that is the dream.’
