You may know Adrienne Bailon Houghton from co-hosting the Emmy-winning daytime talk show The Real, singing in the girl groups 3LW, her acting role in The Cheetah Girls or from her reality TV show Empire Girls: Julissa and Adrienne with her bestie Julissa Bermudez. But did you know that she also has a YouTube show called All Things Adrienne? It airs every Tuesday at 10 am PST and is also available to watch on Amazon.
In it, Houghton “shares simple tips to achieve all things #HiLow in beauty, fashion, home décor, and entertaining… and of course all things Adrienne! This means cool beauty and fashion tutorials; stylish tours of her house, including her closet; a look at her adorable relationship with husband Israel Houghton; talks on relationships; and a glimpse into her life and who she is. I’ve seen a bunch of episodes so far and totally love it! So of course, I wanted to let you all in on it while letting you know what you can come out learning from watching. Here are 15 things you’ll be schooled on from catching this Latinx-created and hosted series.

The Essentials You Should Be Carrying in Your Beach Tote
