My Winter Essentials 🙂

Hey beauts! Since it's finally winter, I am bringing you this post which is all of My Winter Essentials! Winter has to be my favourite season as I'm a cold creature and it just feels like all the other seasons in Ireland! 

Hoodies and Jumpers - Even though i wear these all year round, they are an essential for Winter whether it's wearing outside or to bed. You always need to be warm. 

Onesies - I also wear these all year round but during Winter these are perfect for bed time or just cold days! They need to be soft and snugly tho! 

Costa Hot Chocolate - This is my go to Hot Chocolate but it has to be Costa's as I don't really like anything else. It has to be with marshmallows and cream. 

Lip Balm - This is one of my beauty essentials. I use lip balm so my lips don't crack with the cold and the wind. These keep my lips hydrated! 

Ugg Boots - I always buy Ugg Boots from Primark when they first come out as these are the boots that I can wear the whole time during Winter as they are comfortable and go with nearly everything without a doubt. 

Spice Candles - Now these are massive during the Winter months and especially for Christmas! I love the apple spice and cinnamon spice candles from Glade! 

Bed Throw - I only got a bed throw this year for my birthday of my Nanny and I can see this being a big Winter Essential for the whole time. It's great for cold mornings or evenings if you just want to snuggle up in bed and get warm really quick! 

Hats and Scarfs - Ever since I was young I loved Hats and Scarfs & I still do! I will buy some nearly every time I go into Primark or any other cheapest store! 

Fluffy Socks - Now if you read my blog, you would know that I love Fluffy Socks but during Winter, I can wear 2 pairs at once! They are amazing and just the best when you come in and have frozen feet! 

Let me know your winter essentials in the comments below!

Lush Wishlist!

Hey lovelies! I'm finally bringing Beauty back into my blog and to start it off I thought I would do my first Lush Wishlist - I've always wanted to go and get some Lush products so I thought a wishlist would be a perfect idea! 

Dragons Egg Bath Bomb

I literally love anything to do with Dragons as such - well any mythically sort of creature! I've heard some good reviews about this and it's not that expensive either! It also has a lemony scent which i love!

CupCake Face Mask

I've used this before as my little cousin tried it on me and I fell in love with it! It actually makes your skin feel a lot better and you only need a little bit of it! This would be the first thing to buy from Lush when I go to the store.

Grass Bubble Bar

This is a new product from Lush and I just love the look of it! It's really pretty and it's my type and look of a bubble bar!

Snakes and Ladders 

This just looks like fun tbh! You actually can play snakes & ladders with it and then use it as shampoo or for bubbles.

These are all that's on my Lush Wishlist - let me know in the comments below what would be on your own Lush Wishlist.

13 Personal Questions Tag

Hey lovelies! I thought that I would do a Tag Post as I haven't done one yet on this blog and I actually love doing them. This post is going to be the 13 Personal Questions Tag which I found online! I wasn't tagged in this to do but I really wanted to do it.

1] What do you order from Starbucks?!

I don't actually really go to Starbucks as I'm more of a Costa Coffee sort of person but when I do go, I normally just get a hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream as I don't drink a lot of hot drinks.

2} What's one thing in your closest that you can't live without?!

It would have to say either my Hoodies or my Slipper Socks. Both of these are things that I couldn't live without as I love my comfort and I love being warm! 

3} What's one thing that most people wouldn't know about you?! 

Most people probably wouldn't know that I have a mild form of Autism called " Aspegers Syndrome " and that I used to have a stammer. 

4} Name one thing that you want to do before you die?! 

I would really love to either sky dive or bungee jump but I know for a fact that I probably won't be able to do either haha. 

5} What's one food that you cannot live without?! 

One good that I cannot live without would have to be cheese! I'm literally addicted to cheese and have been since I was small. 

6} What quote or phrase do you live by?! 

I don't really have one other than " live everyday like it's your last " as its the truth. You have no clue when your last day is going do be. 

7} What do you like and dislike by the Blogging/YouTube community?! 

Blogging || I really love the way how you get so much support when you do posts.  I really dislike the amount of competition and bitchness in the community. 
YouTube || I really love how everyone really comes together when people upload and even just the way everyone gets on. I dislike the way that there are a lot of fake people in the community. 

8} What's your number one most listened to on iTunes?! 

I don't really use iTunes at the moment but my number one most listened too on Spotify at the moment has to be Hello by Adele - it's one of my favourite songs out of 2015! If you haven't listened to it please do. 

9} What kind of style would you define yourself as having?! 

I would say I have a pretty laid back style if it's day to day & pretty girly if I'm going out. 

10} Favourite Number?! 

I don't actually have a favourite number...

11} Two hobbies?!

My two hobbies would have to be photography and writing. 

12} Two pet peeves?! 

My main two pet peeves would be - people wearing no socks as I hate feet & people chewing out loud! 

13} Guilty Pleasure?! 

I don't really have a guilty pleasure tbh. I don't have everything that I get pleasure from but feel guilty afterwords? 

I'm going to be tagging everyone that reads this to do this post! 

Let me know in the comments below if you like tag posts or even just facts about yourself!

Reasons Why I Love Winter

Hey lovelies! Since it's nearly the end of October and nearly November, I thought I would do my Reasons Why I Love Winter as it's starting to look and feel like Winter and it's my favourite time of the year! 

The Snow // I love snow but not for the reason you may think! I love hibernating during winter and when it's snowing it's the perfect time to do it. I love just being in pajamas and just looking out the window, and seeing a blanket of snow.

Costa Hot Chocolate // This has to be the drink that I love during winter! I'm a big Costa Coffee addict and they're hot chocolate is just life - I go for the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows! It's literally the only hot drink that I like.

Beanies and Hats // I'm a big hat collector and I love wearing them especially during winter.  You will never see me without a hat or beanie on during winter unless I'm inside.

Christmas // This has to be one of the best things about Winter. Christmas is one of my most favourite things about it because you get to spend time with the family.

Onesies // I wear these all year round but they just feel amazing during winter as they keep you all snuggly and warm.

Dark Mornings and  Evenings // I love the darkness of the mornings and evenings as it just gives you the winter feel as such! The winter mornings have to be one of my favourite times during the day as it's all frosty and cute most of the time.

These are just the reasons Why I Love Winter. Let me know in the comments below about your favourite things about winter!

YouTube Red?!

Hey lovelies! As some of you may know YouTubeRed got announced last night to the public and there has been some different opinions on it so I thought I would do an information and my opinion on the whole thing.

About it // YouTube Red is YouTube's new subscription service where you will be able to have no ads, listen in the background and download videos & music which it's being launched in the United States first at $10 per month which is cheaper than Netflix and Spotify. 
YouTube is saying that it'll help content creators and viewers to have a better experience. They are also releasing more apps.

As what I've got from the whole thing is that it is an optional service but you will still be able to watch videos which will have ad's if you don't do the subscription. Also the creator will have to agree to the terms if they still want to earn or even upload videos - they will get 55% of the earnings from viewers, which is probably better than what we currently have.

My Opinion // After understanding this more, I think it actually could be a pretty good thing for Smaller YouTuber's and even bigger YouTuber's because it will most likely open new door's for everyone. 

Just remember that it is an optional service and you DO NOT have to pay for it if you don't want to.

Let me know in the comments below on what you think about YouTube Red!

New Vlogging Channel 🙌🏼

Hey Lovelies! I'm back with another post which is just an insight to a new YouTube Channel of mine! Hope this channel will interest you a lot :) 

I now have a new channel called ThatSoBVlogs which is my second channel along with ThatSoBekaah which is my main! 

This channel will be used to Vlog about my life and events going on in my life - days out, events, parties, the Los Angeles move and much more! It's just to keep it away from my other videos as it'll be easier for people to find my videos on each channel! 

I have my first video on ThatSoBVlogs going live this weekend - so keep an eye out for the video! 

Most of what is going to be talked about is Los Angeles Move and then my life! 

Let me know in the comments below if you do YouTube and what your channel is!!

Life Updates 💁🏼

Hey lovelies! I'm back with another Life Updates post for you all because there's so much going on from now and future on down the line! I really want to keep you all up to date with what's going on and what's happening without bragging and showing off. 

Blogging // As you all know I have this blog and TheCliquesBlog so I'll be working on both of them but this blog will be my main blog because I can do more on this blog. I will be uploading on here two to four times a week depending on what's going on and how busy I am. 

YouTube // My ThatSoBekaah YouTube is now finally back up and running! I will be uploading on there one to two times a week depending on video ideas and how far ahead of myself I am. I am also now a member of Cloud7 on YouTube so I'll be uploading there every Sunday! 
With my YouTube since its signed to AwesomenessTV I need to prove to them how serious I am about this and what's going on because it's something that I really want and won't give up till I get it. 

The Biggest Decision // Over the past few months, I've made The Biggest Decision of my life. I am hoping to move to the States { Los Angeles, California } by 2018 with a number of girls - so this will be a big change in my life and it's exciting but scary at the same time. 
I will be keeping you updated on everything over the next few months on the positives and the struggles. 

Health // After being in pain since March, we've finally found out why I was in agony after my operation. I have a build up of pretty bad scar tissue so I'll be in pain for the rest of my life but with exercise it should go down and not be sore as it was. 

Course // I've finally started my course in Digital Marketing and I am honestly loving it so far even though it's only one night a week. It's on Tuesday nights and I feel like it's going to help me in future with my blog and YouTube. It's only a 1O week course but it gives me a foundation degree for marketing! 

Twitter // I've finally reached 1O,OOO followers on Twitter after only having it nearly 5 months { my personal } and that's just crazy! I will be doing a competition on my Twitter for it so you can follow me at @B3kaahrose to keep up to date with everything. 

So these are all my life updates for the moment - life is all go and it's crazy! Can't wait to see what the future holds.

Blogging VS YouTube

Hey Lovelies! It's a different type of post today but since I do both of these, I thought I would do a post on the Blogging VS YouTube - I have experience in both so let's hope it's interesting!


  • You can blog in your tracksuit bottoms, without make up on and just chill.
  • It is way easier to earn money {if you want} with blogging through sponsored posts and ads.
  • Everyone is always looking for new blogs to read - it's good to be different.
  • Starting the blog is really easy - there are a lot of different websites and hosts that you can make them with.
  • Everyone for the most part are really nice most of the time and the community is amazing.
  • It can help you get a job in the future.
  • You need regular updates as you need to keep your readership up.
  • Being really honest can definitely lead to trouble - there will be conflicting opinions on the internet like anywhere else.
  • You will get unwelcomed criticism and hate - just like everything on the internet as they think they're better than you.
  • It will take a while to build up your website and your brand.
  • All of your work can disappear in a split second.
  • It will take time to build up your readership - it doesn't happen over night.
  • A lot of people blog so the market can be overrun.

  • It is really easy to reach a media source through YouTube.
  • YouTube can definitely set you apart of the crowd.
  • You get your personality across more to your viewers.
  • It is a visual aid.
  • It's way easier to build up views compared to blogging.
  • The community is amazing - everyone is so supportive!
  • There are a lot of events during the year for everyone all around the world - VidCon, DigiTour, Summer In The City and much more.
  • It is very time consuming with filming and then editing - can take up to 8 hours depending on a video.
  • Vlogging isn't for everyone - some people will be better on camera than other people.
  • There are a lot of trolls on YouTube so it opens you up so much hate and unwanted opinions.
  • People only watch up to 5-7 minutes of videos as 99% people have a short attention span.

This is my post and my own Pro's and Con's of Blogging VS YouTube. For me YouTube is more of my thing than blogging. Let me know in the comments below on what you think is better!

Top Tips on Starting A YouTube Channel

Hey lovelies! This is one of the first Tips Posts that I've done all on this blog. This weeks topic is Top Tips on Starting a YouTube Channel which I've gathered over the past year and a bit of doing YouTube myself - these tips have worked for myself, so I'm hoping they'll work for other people too!

Pick Topics // Most people have a topic before they can decide on what they want to vlog etc. If you're going to have a topic, stick to it as most viewers don't like eg - say if you have a gaming channel and branch out into vlogs, they don't like that so you'll have to make a new channel!

A Name // You need a name that people will remember and it's easy to spell so people can spread your channel around for you. You don't want a channel name that is complicated and not easy to remember at all.

Have A Reason To Do It // You shouldn't really just join YouTube to make money as soon as possible because it doesn't work like that. If you love making videos - do it, do it for yourself and no one else.

Viewers // You need to have a target audience that you want to watch your video's so make sure it's suitable and it's something that they would like to watch as they will be the main viewers for your videos and channel.

Be Yourself // This is the main thing that you need to keep real - viewers will know when you're not yourself as you'll seem fake and people don't like that at all.

YouTube Networks // Most of them get in touch with thousands of creators a day - you need to do research into them, there will be good and bad reviews of course as they can't make everyone happy. If you are reaching the numbers every month and earning enough, join one, Most networks take 10% to 60% off your earnings though but they normally help you in any way that they can if you show them how serious you are.

Comments // Leaving comments on other people's video's is welcomed but please do not include in the comment to check out my channel or that you've subscribed and want a sub back - most people including myself hates it.

These are all my Top Tips for Starting A YouTube Channel. Let me know in the comments below - your tips for starting a channel!

The Friday Feeling 🎉

Hey lovelies! I can't believe that it's the end of another week & the start of a new month - this post is a part of a series called The Friday Feeling! Each week I'll be going into more detail about stuff that means a lot to me. 

• Photo Curtesy of @LosAngelesPic on Twitter •

When I was around 14/15 years old, I knew there was something " different " about me as such - I would react to things differently, I wouldn't understand things as much as others other, I would get quiet obsessed with a lot of different things. I knew I wasn't like anyone else in my year as such, I iust couldn't put my finder on it. 

As I got older, I started to see it more especially around people the same age as me - I would do things totally different than others would do it. Some of the other struggles while growing up were - learning how to dress myself properly, my speech as I had a really bad stammer { you wouldn't really notice it now } & my attention spam. 

In my late teens I found out I had Aspergers - it was a big shock but I kind of seen it coming, as such - as I knew I was different. I had a mild case of it and it doesn't affect me as much as it does with other people! I didn't know what to think of it at first as I was ashamed. I did a lot of research on it and I looked up facts, information & more on the Internet! 

Over the first few months I was ashamed and had no clue what to do, or what was going on. As time went on, I found out that it wasn't uncommon and a lot of famous & smart people had it! 

Now I have no problem talking about it and I feel that it's a topic or type of autism that people don't really know about. It's a part of me that I can't really change! I hope to change people's outlook on Aspergers with my blog and YouTube! 

Let me know in the comments if you've heard about it or thoughts on this post!
