Changing my YouTube name?

Hey huns!
So lately I've been thinking about/regretting my YouTube URL. I made it back when I thought I was only ever going to blog, and never start youtube. But of course I have now started youtube and absolutely love it, the only thing I dislike is my channel URL.
Well, firstly what does karatepandaify have to do with beauty, fashion or life in general? It is possibly the most random name I could of thought of at the time.

Secondly, I have a header that says 'thefashionchain' but if you type it in to the youtube search bar, you won't find my channel. It makes nooo sense at all.

So after a good bit of thinking, I have decided that I will only use karatepandaify as a vloggy channel (if I ever do vlogs) and I have started a new channel called 'beautybykate78'. 
My biggest worry was 'what about my old videos?'.  Sadly there's no possible way to transfer videos over, but, what I have done is made a playlist consisting of all my old videos which I'll put on the front page of my new youtube channel. 
So that is my post today! If you want to subscribe to my new channel to be notified when I put up a new video, I'll leave the link below!
BUT I want to know what you think. Comment below whether you think I should stick with my old one or go on with the new one?

March Favourites

Hey huns!
So slaps on the wrist for me for not blogging or uploading in sooo long! I hate not blogging.

I have decided since it is now 9 days into March (wow) I would do my February favourites as a blog post only. Lets gooo

MAC Mineralize Blush in 'Warm Soul'
I got this for Christmas and have been using it so much ever since. It's such a pretty blush and I find that it gives such a natural flush to my cheeks.

Blistex Intense Moisturiser
This is my second one this year (empties video should be just around the corner) and I am obsessed with this lip balm! I suffer from extremely dry skin, and it is at its worst at the minute. This just puts so much moisture back into your lips leaving them feeling deeply moisturised. I put this on at night and when I wake up in the morning its still there. So impressed.

MAC Eyelash Curlers
My eyelashes are short enough, and these just make them seem so long! I love using these before I put on my mascara as it gives them a lovely bit of a boost.

MAC Amplified lipstick in 'Girl About Town'
I think its safe to say this is more than likely my favourite lipstick ever. Its a beautiful fuscia pink that I try to wear whenever I can. It is in no way at all drying, is pigmented and stays on for ages. 


Revlon Colorstay Concealer in 01 Fair
When my collection concealer dried up I thought I should try a new concealer. I have been using this for my under eyes and I really like it!

Benefit cream eyeshadow in 'No Pressure!'
This is a beautiful cream eyeshadow. Its a pretty bronzey-brown that looks lovely on its own and works well as a base. Love the shimmer that it has too.


Lush lip scrub in 'Mint Julips'
I have been a fan of Lush products for years as I have quite sensitive skin. I bought this last year and have only really gotten into using it consistently over the past month or so. I use this in the morning to buff my lips and then put the Blistex over it. It also smells fantastic!

So those are my March favourites! I have a video to upload so I will hopefully have it up this week.
