The Sibling Tag

Yesterday I posted my newest video on YouTube - The Sibling Tag!

My brother and I got together to answer the questions on the list (albeit reluctantly on his part) and it made, to say the least, quite an interesting video.

What are you guys like with your siblings?

Also, please watch, like, and subscribe - THANK YOU VURY MUCH IF YOU DO!

Until next time! (Leave any comments down below on ideas for something you'd like to see on either my channel or my blog!)

I'm very excited to say that tomorrow I'll be heading to watch One Direction's "This Is Us"! (Apologies to any non-One Direction fans who have to go through with reading these blog posts about them.)

I'm hoping that it'll be a really good movie - I do have quite high expectations of it - and I'll probably leave a very short review (no spoilers, promise) tomorrow on this blog for anyone who's interested/

For anyone who actually is interested in my YouTube channel, I think I might be falling into a nice routine of posting videos every Friday and Tuesday - it's a nice, regular schedule and it's by no means too taxing on me, so hopefully I'll be able to stick to it.

I'm still not too sure what my next video will be but we'll see, I suppose. I think I'd also like to buy a vlogging camera too - I love my Canon EOS 600D a lot but it's quite heft and since it can't really autofocus on the go it's not ideal for vlogs where I go out and have to record on the move. Alas, however, I've no money at the moment so I'll have to wait until I can buy one.

I should probably invest in a good microphone as well for that matter.

Anyone have any ideas for my next video?

Until next time!

What's In My Bag?

New video is up!

It's not the most interesting video in the world, no, but it was simple and it's something I always love to watch so I hope you guys have a good time watching mine as well - and to anyone who watches, likes, and subscribes, I offer you a very large thank you!

In any case, I've not much else to report. My missing makeup has, as of yet, not been found, so I may well have to turn to my old makeup for inspiration. Who knows? Maybe I'll even make a post based on my backup makeup! (Clever word play there, you see.)

Otherwise, I've also not been going out much so far but hopefully I'll be able to a bit more later on.

In the meantime, does anyone have any suggestions - for videos, blog posts, anything really? Please leave them down below!

Until next time!

Since YouTube videos should probably be posted on a regular schedule, I'd very much like to post one today. As it is, however, I have two very large problems facing me at this very moment:

  • I have no idea what to do. I was thinking along the lines of a challenge, but most are better with two people and I doubt my brother is willing to join me. Any ideas for good and (non-dangerous, please) challenges I could do on my own?
  • Two of my uncles are staying over, and along with the four people in this house already, it is very, very difficult to find any semblance of privacy to actually record my videos. Even if I manage to find an empty room, there's always so much noise. Sigh.
In any case, I will still give this my best shot. In other news, I can smell a very yummy pasta sauce being made downstairs.

Also, my cat may or may not be trying to sing.

Until next time!

So I actually did it - I actually put up a video on YouTube!

I'll admit, it's not the most amazing of videos nor do I look stunning in it, the voice quality isn't amazing, I talk funny, and it's in general not very professional or anything, but I was very, very nervous posting it and I really hope that at least a few people like it.

It's basically an introduction post where I list 10 facts about myself, and I would very much appreciate it if people watched, liked, and subscribed!

I also would love for you guys to leave any suggestions either here or in the comments of the video itself for anything you'd like me to do - whether it be a how to video, a vlog, or a challenge. In fact, challenges are very, very welcome. For the most part. As long as it's not dangerous.

Again, please watch, like, and subscribe - it would really help me out!

Thank you, and until next time!

Men In Black - 1D Version

Hullo again, and welcome to the next part of the segment I like to call "My makeup kit is still missing and I sincerely and truly apologise".

On another note though, did anyone catch One Direction's "This Is Us" movie premiere?

Apologies to anyone who isn't a 1D fan, but it was definitely worth the watch! I watched the livestream Yahoo provided and it was certainly far more interesting than I normally find movie premieres, that's for sure. What truly impressed me was the sheer amount of people packed into Leicester Square - 15,000 they said! If that's not impressive I don't know what is.

Also, once the boys stepped out, my jaw may or may not have dropped because they truly did, at the risk of sounding like a preteen girl, look absolutely gorgeous. Dressed suavely in black, they all looked poised and excited - what could look better on a person anyway?

Another round of apologies for my missing makeup kit and for anyone who doesn't like 1D and has to go through my lovestruck ramblings.

Until next time!

Fiery Marshmallows - Yep.

Bad news, guys - the makeup kit is still totally and completely lost. The whole house is been enlisted to look for it but as of yet it's still missing, unfortunately.

Also I went out for lunch yesterday at California Pizza Kitchen and the food was yummy - as usual!

The Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich from CPK - Yummy!
In the meantime though, it's been a relatively boring day so far - didn't go out for anything but to drop my uncle at the airport. I did, however, look into other interesting things online such as teenage entrepreneurship and interesting ways to make money for 17 year olds like me - people living in countries where it's illegal to get a paying job, even part time, until you're 18.

And you know what? I think I found some good ideas that I may well be looking into trying and experimenting with. After all, there's nothing to lose, is there?

I also may have roasted marshmallows. Here is a marshmallow on fire for your viewing pleasure.

This marshmallow's on fi-iiire~

Also - would anyone be interested in me maybe doing daily vlogs or challenge videos on YouTube? It's such an interesting platform and one I'd definitely like to look into.

Until next time!

(And apologies for the not-so-great photo quality - these were taken courtesy of my iPhone 5 and not my usual Canon.)

18 August, 2013

Hullo again!

Now, the thing is - I really want to blog.

I do, I truly, honestly do. But the fact is that I've currently lost my makeup kit - yes, the one there's a post about - and I can't do any specific looks from that.

I can't buy new things to review either, and I don't do enough to actually blog daily about.

Does anyone who's been in this situation have any ideas? They'd be really, truly welcome!

Until next time!

Excuses, excuses.

I'm just full of them, aren't I?

Unfortunately, however, this is a very valid one. At the end of last month, July 29th, my father passed away. This was a - huge would be an understatement - massive shock to my family, considering he was healthier and more fit than all of us put together.

It's been hard coping but we're dealing so far, and hopefully there are better things in store for the future. Any prayers for him would be happily appreciated as well.

In light of this event, I took a tiny break from posting, but hopefully will start again - once I have things to post at least!

As always, your patience is highly appreciated, and if you have any ideas you'd like me to discuss in my next post, please do leave a comment down below.

Until next time :)

A side note - I was thinking about maybe starting a daily (or weekly) vlogging channel on YouTube. Any ideas or thoughts? Please let me know.
