Top 10 Reads + ‘How Well Do You Know Your BFF?’ Video!

April 7, 2016

Ahhh, today is so exciting because today marks the official resurgence of my TBB TV YouTube channel!

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by posting THIS VID with one of my best friends, Brandin Cohen, co-founder of Liquid I.V. & all around one of my very favorite humans. You guys will know him as well as I do by the time you finish this video — we dug deep & talked about everything from our first kiss (middle school, baby) to what we both order at bars to what he’s looking for in a girl / what I’m looking for in a guy.


It’s SUCH A FUN VIDEO. I can’t stop watching it — it showcases our personalities to a tee, and it seriously feels like you’re sitting right there with us and in our convo! Props to my video dude Morgan Oliver Allen for killing it with this. He knows how happy I am that he makes a few appearances in the vid as well. 😉

I love, love, looooove connecting with you guys on camera & being able to speak directly to you & show you my personality off of the computer screen! Before this, I took a little hiatus from YouTube because

a) life is busy & I’ve been focusing on the bloggy, TBV Apparelmy book!

b) y’all know I’ve had some crazy backlash from the ethical vegan community about my transition from veganism, and the bulk of the Internet trolls exist on YOUTUBE. Yep, YouTube. So my hiatus was in partial to be like, “K BYEEEE haters, focusing on plenty of other things while you duke it out amongst yourselves like loons in the comments section.”


Watch the video, subscribe to the channel (so much fun stuff to come! Yoga tutorials, cooking videos, #GIRLBOSS series, more ‘How Well Do You Know Your BFF?’ vids, on & on!) & TELL US WHAT YA THINK!

Comment on the video & give it a thumbs up to enter to win a free month’s supply of Liquid I.V., the healthy hydration supplement that Brandin co-founded & that I run the social media for!
