Nadine Lustre offers you a soothing escape with her weekend vlog that is peaceful, therapeutic, and inspiring all at once.
In an era where influencer culture is synonymous to heavily capitalistic motives and content creators that are wont to incite jealousy and unrealistic expectations, it is easy to get drowned in all this senseless noise online. Today, the suffocating and saturated digital world’s mantra is to just get your clicks and earn the fastest way possible. So, if you’re someone who’s looking for inspiration and well, serenity, for when you need to take a breather from the harsh realities of life, the virtual arena can be a tough and tricky place.
Thankfully, there are those rare gems who break from the rotten mold of online creation and produce content that offers an escape that is as peaceful as it is inspiring. One of them is the vlogging newbie, our president, Nadine Lustre. Akin to the silent vlogging and slow living trend that became popular during the pandemic, Nadine’s latest weekend vlog does away with the blaring spectacle of most YouTubers and instead embraces the soothing simplicity of the mundane. Here are some of the elements from Nadine’s latest therapeutic entry that will leave you feeling ready to make your own beautiful day.
Challenged by her team to film her weekend, Nadine Lustre goes old school, armed with a nostalgic video camera to capture her moments.

Straightforward and honest, the vlog lets us focus on the now and appreciate life’s little moments as if we’re with Nadine herself.
If you’ve been consuming YouTube vlogs for some time now, you’d know how most creators are often, well, loud.

With just the diegetic sounds of cooking food, a movie on the telly, an egg breaking, and those little chitchats in between, Nadine’s vlog makes for a naturally immersive experience.

Perhaps the highlight of Nadine’s weekend film is that part where she’s arranging flowers (and slaying it).

Also, it makes us wanna check on our pots and plants and tend to their needs. The Nadine effect, we call it.
