THE UPDATE



So it's been a while and a lot has been happening in the busy world of the YouTube. A LOT. So I thought I'd run through a few recent online going ons since last time we talked..

1) The Pointless Book 
Back in August Alfie Deyes of PointlessBlog annouced that he was releasing his very own interactive book. Not dissimilar to the popular 'Wreck this Journal' each page of the book features a new fun task for you to complete and if you hover your phone camera over certain areas you will be directed to a video of Alfie telling you more about it. Pretty cool right? For a whole 6 weeks after it was released it was top of the UK non-fiction charts. Not bad. 

2) AmityFest
In September tickets went on sale for British 'YouTuber Crew' tour AmityFest. Zoe, Joe, Alfie, Louise, Caspar, Tanya, Jim, Marcus and Niomi have all put together a 3 date tour to give fans a special treat. Expect challenges, tags and from the looks of it, human pyramids. If all goes well it looks like Amity Fest will be taken on a much larger tour in the future. 

3) YouTube Ads
If you hadn't already noticed (how could you not?) YouTube has recently launched a huge advertising campaign bringing some of our favourtie YouTuber's in to the offline spotlight with advertisements featured on TV, on the tube, on interactive billboards. Literally everywhere. Zoella even got a prime-time place in the much sought after X Factor break. So those still saying 'never heard of her' will soon get to know her face pretty damn well.

4) CO LAB
Ruth Crilly of a Model Reccomends has launched her own Dry Shampoo range featuring 5 different fragrances that promise to feel and appear invisible when worn. They are currently available in Superdrug stores and on FeelUnique.com

5) Tanya Burr Lashes 
Ever since the launch of her lips gloss and nail varnish launch back in January there has been talk of what beauty products Tanya would release next. Last week Tanya launched her very own eyelashes following in the footsteps of Millie Mackintosh, Katy Perry and Girls Aloud. Ready for the festive season the range features five sets of strip lashes suitable from everyday use to a girls night out and one set of individual lashes. They are available now from Superdrug and FeelUnique.com

6) Zoella Beauty
And finally, in September the beauty vlogging queen Zoella launched her very own range of beauty products in Superdrug. I mean, you can't move for stumbling across YouTuber products in Superdrug at the moment. The range is Zoe's choice of ultimate pamper products including body mist, fizz bar bath bomb and make up bags (featuring a guinea pig of course!).

So it's all going a million miles per hour for the YouTube gang. Have you got your hands on any of their products yet? What do you think of the ever growing blogger and vlogger culture? Let me know in the comments!
