Alexa Mae kick-started her YouTube career in 2014 with a bang. From Plover, Wisconsin, Alexa brought new colors and vibrance to YouTube videos and since, she keeps lighting it up with her fashion, beauty, and lifestyle tips. Below she gives us the scoop on what it takes to make YouTube videos and shares her thoughts on our new denim collection.

What type of videos are your favorites to make and where do your ideas come from?

My all-time favorite videos to make are DIY room decor videos! I just love finding new ways to decorate my room for cheap. ? I get all of my inspiration from magazines, Pinterest and Tumblr (the rooms on there are my GOALS!)

Describe your style in 3 words.

Girly, colorful and FUN!

How did you learn to film and edit videos?

I’m self taught ? I learned everything from watching a ton of YouTube videos on editing techniques and different skills! As for filming, over time you become more and more comfortable with the camera and getting the shots you want ? My filming techniques are so different from when I started my channel until now. I just think over time you learn so much and gain really great tips from other YouTubers!

How did you convince your little brother to be in your video and try out girl products?

I told him I would shout out his social media accounts (Instagram/ which is mack_jack_) if he was in my video and he instantly agreed! ? It was that easy haha! Check out the video here!

What do you think about the Garage denim collection that you wore during the photo shoot?

I think the collection is AMAZING! The quality of the Garage denim collection is mind blowing and for such great prices – you can’t go wrong! Everything I wore was SO comfy and flattering to my body type! LOVE ♥

To help launch our exciting campaign Jeans You Love, we invited four of our fave YouTubers to Montréal, Québec for a super fun two-day photo shoot. We took them to the iconic La Ronde amusement park and Parc Jean-Drapeau, located right in the middle of the Saint Lawrence River, had an impromptu meetup with a bunch of fans at our flagship store on Sainte-Catherine, ate poutine, rode bikes, and had so many laughs!
