I have just read a superb interview in Glamour magazine with the gorgeous, lovely and beautiful Tanya Burr. She is one of the biggest vlogging stars around, with a huge social media following (1.6 million on Twitter & 2.2 million on Instagram), meaning that brands literally cannot get enough of her.
