Reflecting On 2019

Image
Hi everyone So this is my last blog post of the year. I wanted to write and fill out a reflections questionnaire to share my favourite and worst parts of 2019. What is your favourite 2019 memory? I have so many highlights of this year. But one of my favourite moments was creating my cruelty free beauty shopping series back in January (click here to view the video playlist). The first episode (which was filmed in The Range ) was shared on their Instagram page. I felt as though it was a sign from the universe that I was on the right track so I made 10 more episodes in different stores across the UK. What have you achieved this year that you are most proud of? Not quitting making videos or blogging. I've struggled with my mental health on and off so I've not been able to post as regularly as I would of liked. Sometimes I've let the self doubt creep in which tells me that my content isn't good enough compared to other creators. I'm still working on rewirin

Vlogmas Week 3

Hi everyone The final instalment of vlogmas is now live on my YouTube channel . Welcome to Week 3 (but not quite) Last week I was unfortunately struck down by the flu and I wasn't able to film anything (well not unless you want to watch 10 minutes of me coughing which I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate). So I decided to film a long and chatty daily vlog including one of my favourite things to do which is shopping. It's one of the first videos that I created on my channel so I wanted to bring it back. I received some PR mail from Slow Ageing Essentials   they kindly gifted me a facial oil which I shall be testing out in the new year. Video or blog post? you decide! When I visited Nottingham I popped into The Disney Store, Superdrug and Aldi. But what did I buy?Well you will have to watch the video below to find out. If you would like some bonus festive content then why not head over to my  Instagram and watch me unbox my Christmas Eve box. Click here to be redi

Vlogmas Week 2

Hi everyone! Welcome to week 2 of vlogmas. This week I put up the Christmas tree, voted in the general election, shared my thoughts on the results, browsed local charity shops in Long Eaton for Christmas decorations and answered your burning questions. It was a jam packed week. I've really enjoyed filming vlogmas so far. Although, I have found it difficult to film no matter what happens (fun activities are easy to do but it's the mundane ones like putting my bins out that I question. I've learnt to take a deep breath and film it anyway. Take that self doubt!). At the end of the day it doesn't matter who you are. We all have to pay our bills, shop for food and put our bins out. In my vlog I mentioned that I always find the recycling bin a nightmare towards Christmas as it gets rather full quickly. Does yours? let me know in the comments below. On the 12th December the UK had a general election and I don't usually share my political opinions online. However t

Vlogmas Week 1

Hi everyone I'm attempting weekly vlogmas this year. Hooray! If you have been living underneath a rock and you don't know what vlogmas is. Vlogmas is filming and uploading a video everyday up until Christmas Eve. I've been put off filming previous years as I didn't think my life was entertaining enough to upload or share anything. One of my flaws (which i'm working on) is that I compare myself to other creators. However this year I've decided that I'm not going to compare myself anymore. I'm going to u pload my everyday real mundane life.  I posted my thoughts to Twitter and a viewer got in contact and reminded me that the things which I find boring  could actually be really interesting to others to watch. Which was a great point and gave me the push to start filming. Thank you. The reality of vlogmas is that all of the amazing things you see other creators do for the festivities are often the best bits. They don't necessarily show the struggl
