Social Media Influencer Part 2


Following on from my last post with Zoella, let's look at another YouTube star, Tanya Burr. 
Tanya is like her friend Zoe in so many ways but as creators they are completely different, creating content aimed at different audiences. 



Personally Tanya Burr for me is someone out of all the YouTubers who I look to for style & makeup inspiration. Her style is just fab in my opinion! Not only does she too have her own books releases with a third book coming out within the next year or two, she has her makeup line with Superdrug & even better she is a UN ambassador for women's rights.
Talk about girl power or what! 


YouTube for Tanya has allowed her to travel to amazing places such as the Maldives, LA and Miami, places that most popular can only ever dream of.  I'm sure most people have major holiday envy when she posts her travels on various social sites and her blog.
Her blog that she too started back in 2009, back it was never seen as anything more than a hobby and hobby that led to YouTube which then turned into a career. People laugh when they hear people actually aspire to be YouTubers & Bloggers when they're older but really is it a safe career to aim for? Let's face it you're only going to have work as long as you're popular- how long will that popularity last?



In my eyes Tanya Burr is the fashionista of the YouTuber gang, making videos has lead to her being able to sit on the frow at LFW for shows such as Burberry. I mean come on isn't that the ultimate goal in life? 
As well as her close fashion links she has her cookbook- Tanya Bakes, including lots of yummy recipes, although her book did get a lot of slack when it was released because of it's errors in the print.



I am so in love with this outfit it's actually unreal!

Tanya positively uses her fame for good things, last year she wrote this blog post after working with the UN Global Goals "It’s easy to think that because of stories like mine that we don’t need to worry about Gender Equality in the same way that previous generations have, but the truth is that in so many countries and in so many ways, women are still repressed and put down by systems and beliefs. 31 million girls are still not enrolled in primary school, every day 39,000 girls are forced into marriage and women make up only 22% of parliament seats and 8% of the world’s executives.
If you don’t already know, the Global Goals are 17 goals agreed upon by 193 world leaders to end poverty, fight inequality and end climate change. I’m committed to helping make the Global Goals a reality and if you look into the problems behind lots of the goals, so many of them start with the exclusion and discrimination of girls and women. If women and men had equal wages and job opportunities, there would be no more global poverty – countries lose over $92 billion per year by failing to educate girls and boys equally. If we help girls, the rest of the world will benefit too."

It's inspiring how devoted she is to use her following to help make other people's lives better, she regularly tweets about the UN and encourages women to love who they are over on her Instagram, she even got involved with the 'bare-face' campaign for Children in Need. encouraging women to go bare faced for the day in aid of the charity. 


Of course her relationship with husband, Jim Chapman, brother of the Pixiwoo sisters (a very close circle), Jim & Tanya's relationship is honestly goals in life- it must be hard however to both vlog and maintain different content on there channels when living together. When they got married Twitter practically had a meltdown with everyone using the #jimandtanyagotmarried and when they shared photos from the day on Instagram it was literally the sweetest thing.


Besides her YouTube career, Tanya is looking to get into another sector, acting. She has been having lessons for over the last year and has recently landed an exciting role, which we will get to hear about very soon. When interviewed in the past has said that she always loved drama at school but never continued with it- proving that it's never too late to follow your dreams.



Personally I love the whole YouTuber gang, I enjoy following the going ons in their lives because it all seems so exciting & if I'm honest it gives me something to aspire too. It's nice to know that there are options if you aren't academic, just being yourself is enough to get you by in life. Now I'm not saying children should just not bother with school because I'm not. I'm a firm believer in that you should try your hardest in everything that you do. Too often teachers told me and many people that I know that if you don't get the grades, qualifications or the degree then you will get nowhere in life, but people such as Tanya have taught us that it's not true & is no longer the case.
Can that ever really be seen as a bad thing?

Let me know what you think in the comments below. 
Take care & I'll see you all very soon.
