Brittany Bathgate #2 Buying things to fill the gaping hole in her personality

I think she look great with long hair, but it made me wonder who she was copying now since I've never noticed her with long hair before 🤔
Agree! Not sure which influencer has her trying to master the slicked back bun/braid, I suspect it might just be the overall "clean girl" aesthetic you see on social media these days. I would prefer her with a bun though since the braid feels very childish on her for some reason? Maybe I would prefer the braid more it if it was giving Tomb Raider, but it's very much... not that. Also, the slicked back hair can be very unforgiving for certain face shapes.

If she loosened the braid, had it start lower on her neck, and left a few pieces out at the front, I think that would look sublime on her! Might be a touch too romantic for her aesthetic though.

On the subject of her hair though, I really do think her hair is her best feature, so to see it tied back so often recently makes me a little sad. I've always loved the waves especially with her highlights. Although, that said, I wonder how much time she spends (rather, spent) getting that subtle wave.

I think she spends a lot of time getting her hair just right, as with everything. She has shown how she does the waves in a video before. It's an effortless look and she's nailed it. Her hair is totally her best feature so I was surprised that I had never noticed her having it long before.

I completely agree about the severely slicked back pony/braid, very odd look on her. I noticed Allana Davison doing the same look in her last video, so definitely some copying going on all around.

First and foremost: This is hilarious.

Secondly, I have never seen someone agonize over every minute action or decision. Even at the end when she discusses wanting to show more local Norwich establishments, she rambles away and laments over why she wasn't able to cover more and what not. I imagine every purchase is a struggle even down to loo roll and making sure she gets just the right brand to suit her personal aesthetic.

She seems to make a lot of excuses for the way she creates content and this makes me think that she's still very insecure in what she produces, likely because she compares it to other content creators. I wish she would be more secure, I think it would allow her to express herself more freely and I think we would all benefit from it with more interesting content.

I also wish she would stop colour-grading everything with olive and sepia tones, my goodness. Next thread title can be: Beige-tany Beige-gate.
I do enjoy her videos, and hadn't really noticed the deliberation, but it's made me consider just how strange it must be to describe everything into a camera. The trend from mostly Korean and Japanese youtubers where they don't usually speak (or even show their faces), just film themselves pottering around and adding subtitles instead is really quite interesting and unique. I don't think many UK youtubers have adopted this style, but it seems a good way to be intentional with what you want to communicate.

Britters and Dean are on a campervan trip (which I hope she's vlogging because it's BB at her best) but in her stories they've gone hiking and she's wearing a four hundred quid anorak. To climb a mountain. What makes it even worse is that it's white. Who even does that?

To be fair, Serious Mountain Clothing does cost about that (although it's rarely white) - not that I think Brittany's is actually designed for the real wilds of the great outdoors.

While I mostly agree with this, District Vision isn’t a serious mountain clothing brand. They’re more of a boutique city running name. Their gear wouldn’t help you much in tougher conditions on higher altitudes. You can also get pretty decent hiking/mountaineering gear for half that price.

Anyway, from what we’ve seen they never do more challenging hikes, mountaineering or sleeping in the open, so hardly anything to warrant serious gear. This time they’re hiking the Sugar Loaf Mountain, which is basically a leisurely walk.

She was wearing a very similar one from Studio Nicholson in her St Ives roadtrip stories that sells for a couple of hundred as well. BB loves to repeat buy! Maybe I'm getting too old but calling virtually every outfit a "fit" grates after a while.

Ooh do you have any examples? I would like this (although difficult to consume as 'passive' content they way you just have Youtuber voices prattling away in the background)

Not the OP, but I used to enjoy “Sueddu.”

Also not the OP but I enjoy Hamimommy, Honeyjubu, kitchen story,nyangsoop (all korean, asmr cooking/cleaning type that my YT algorithm recommends! Calm and relaxing, no constant ads/shilling (generally) . A world of difference from the usual "influencers". Not for everyone, but a nice change of pace.

Haha also not OP but adding to the list, Tokyo Hare is pretty good too. She’s Korean but based in Tokyo and her grocery shopping YouTubes make excellent asmr sounds. Very interesting for me to see what supermarkets sell in Japan and what their daily lives look like.

x2 I quite like that she includes the 'out takes' too :)

Agree, such a change of pace to the usual influencer type content. I tend to gravitate towards this 'style' of video nowadays, not only is it interesting to get a peek into other cultures, but I think it's actually quite lovely to see such beautifully filmed content of something as simple as watering plants. I guess it's less about selling something, and more about being mindful of daily habits and experiences.

Thank you for those suggs. I had a look, and agree, a nice change of pace and thoughtful content. Subscribed to a few.

Does anyone else feel like BB’s Wardrobe Wishlist videos are just made for brands as a list of stuff to send her for free?

It's a great hustle if she can get it, but I doubt khaite need to be sending BB product to flog their goods. With any luck she'll get a voucher from farfetch, NAP et al and get what she wants

I've wondered that, but if that's the case then BB is really bad at begging. She links odd things, but when you compare her to other people out there who affiliate link everything from their duvet cover to their Tesco groceries, she really doesn't put the hard yards in. Also, she never promotes her YouTube videos anywhere else. I agree with @Joannabloggs, I think it's voucher related. Previously, she's done some of these 'wishlist' videos in partnership with FarFetch, but these non-spon ones seem much more authentic.

Can't help but laugh at how she talks about mixing gold + silver jewelry and being in a 'necklace' phase, like this is like a new discovery to her.

Also, for the record, I was genuinely shocked she would want Monica Vinader pieces but then I opened the description box and saw the sponsorship note and then it all made sense.

BB glosses over this in the video but the gold pieces are gold vermeil. Given everything I've seen of BB, I would expect her to buy solid gold pieces (sometimes referred to as 'gold filled'), especially given that MV's prices are high enough that solid gold wouldn't be that much more, but alas, the sponsorship! MV allegedly uses 18ct gold for their vermeil, but still. There's no way of telling how thick the 18ct gold layer is vs. the brass base and these pieces generally require more care to ensure that the gold doesn't tarnish.

The fact that she even comments that MV's products are 100% recycled, sterling silver, and 18ct gold (pause) vermeil. She should have explained the difference. Just because something is 18ct gold doesn't mean you're paying for 100% 18ct gold, sheesh!

If you would allow me to indulge in a BB style ramble...

The whole solid gold vs. vermeil vs. plated issue is something that I've looked into quite a bit since I've been in the market for more jewelry and it really grinds my gears when jewelry companies describe their products as "fine" jewelry but only have gold vermeil products. It's my opinion that companies like MV and Mejuri do this as a way of over-charging customers who think they're buying higher-quality jewelry than they really.

This isn't a comment on those who want vermeil jewelry, since vermeil is generally more reasonably priced, it's a comment on companies who purposefully mislead customers. Even using the word 'gold vermeil' is misleading since the gold is (usually) only slightly thicker and higher quality than plated and can still tarnish. There generally aren't any rules/guidelines for what constitutes plated vs. vermeil and no one holds these companies accountable.

At the end of the day, vermeil and plated jewelry are both plated and are usually filled with brass, and for BB to shill this company to us knowing that she would probably never even buy from them herself... ugh.

Apologies for the rant. This is near and dear to my heart. I feel like people are purposefully being led astray on this topic and jewelry isn't cheap.

I know I hate gold vermeil with a passion. That shit tarnishes. I buy stuff on Etsy now, solid gold in similar designs for the same price, often cheaper.
