Danielle Marie is from Tampa Bay, Florida and had her start on YouTube six years ago when she started posting videos with her little brother. She quickly upgraded her camera and started making fashion, beauty and most recently “weekend in my life” videos, where she brings you along for the ride on some great adventures. Let’s get to know Danielle’s thoughts on YouTube, her first time visiting Montréal, and the reason our denim collection makes her feel edgy!
Why did you start making “weekend in my life” videos and what do you like about them?
I go to school 5 days a week so when the weekend comes around, I want to be sure I make the most out of it! My followers kept requesting that I start vlogging. So I decided to just vlog my weekends and put it all together in one video! The videos became a hit, everyone started to fall in love with them. Many people tell me that my “weekend in my life” videos inspire them to try new things and be more productive in their life like I try to be! Check out her weekend in her life video below from her visit to Montréal.
Are you excited to start university next year? What are your plans for this next phase in your life?
Next fall I’m going be a freshman in college which is crazy to think about! I don’t know where I’m attending college yet, applications begin this fall. However, I know that I want to leave Florida for college. I am looking forward to meeting new people, exploring new places, and maybe a few new seasons since Florida’s only season seems to be summer, all year round!

Asides from making videos for YouTube, what are some of your other favorite pastimes and hobbies?
I used to be on a competitive hip hop dance crew that travelled around performing at concerts and competitions. I still enjoy taking weekly hip hop classes, it’s just such a great stress reliever. I’m also really involved in my school’s theatre program. Last year we did “Legally Blonde, the Musical” and I was cast as one of the lead roles, Brooke Wyndham, which was so much fun!
Do people stop you in the street? How was it meeting your Montréal fans?
Yes! I usually meet viewers whenever I go shopping at the mall, sometimes at sporting events, and even at the airport! It’s always so humbling and heart warming meeting people who love watching my videos. Meeting some fans at the Garage flagship store in Montréal was such an amazing experience. Two girls even brought me my favorite flowers, peonies!
What do you think about the Garage denim collection that you wore during the photo shoot?
I am 100% in love with the Garage denim collection. All of the denim I wore was super comfortable that I even forgot I was wearing denim during the photo shoot. I especially liked the denim jacket I wore for one of my looks, it gave off a super edgy yet chic vibe.
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!
