In addition to reading awesome mom blogs, I also enjoy watching YouTube videos by moms. There is so much content out on the web that it can be overwhelming. Over the last couple of years, I have definitely found some of my favorite mom channels. I usually find myself tuning in while I’m getting ready in the morning because a momma is always multitasking, right? Today I wanted to share some of my favorite YouTube moms. There are lots of mom-related channels, but these are the ones on my subscription list that I find myself actually watching and applying their tips in real life. In no particular order, here they are:
- WhatsUpMoms: I discovered their channel about three years ago when their Iggy Azalea “Fancy” parody called “I’m So Pregnant” went viral. It’s hilarious! What I love about this channel is that they have a wide range of content all mommy and children related. WhatsUpMoms covers everything from kid-friendly recipes, games for kids, styling for mom and kids, and so much more. You’ll also find Pinterest ideas come to life. My new favorite series is Gears where one of the moms does product reviews.
- VassuerBeauty: Brittany has a one-year-old son and although you might assume her channel is all about beauty, fashion, or skin care, it’s actually much more than that. In her lifestyle channel, she shares organizing and cleaning tips, DIYs for gifts and self-care, and she’s started to post weekly vlogs. One tip I learned from her was using Water Wipes to remove makeup. In a previous blog, I mentioned that I have sensitive skin. As luck would have it, Water Wipes were included in the swag bag from OMB’s Bloom event! I’ve been using Water Wipes ever since and have noticed a huge difference in my skin.
- Do It On A Dime: Kathryn is a mom of two boys who definitely keeps it real! Her focus is creating a beautiful life on a budget. I have implemented several of her organizing and cleaning tips in our home. The most practical advice I’ve learned from her channel is the 80/20 rule. In terms of organizing, only fill a space up to 80% and leave 20% of the space free. That way your drawers and cupboards aren’t too crammed with items and you still have room to grow. In life, if you can get 80% of what you want to get done on a daily basis, you’re doing pretty good. I usually am an all or nothing type of person, but this tip hit home with me after having kids.
- Clean My Space: Brand new mom Melissa has a great channel on, you guessed it, cleaning! She has tons of videos on how to clean just about everything. She’s started to incorporate a mother’s view on cleaning now that she is a mom herself. Since keeping up a clean home can take up a chunk of time, I love her efficient cleaning tips. My favorite tip so far has been simply wiping down the shower stall after bathing. It literally takes two minutes! I started applying this tip after my spring cleaning this year and my shower still looks so fresh and so clean!
