That’s right, I took the plunge and uploaded my first ever Youtube video. I’m not going to lie, I’ve always watched my favourite ‘influencers’ (is that the correct term, I don’t know?!) and thought to myself how easy it must be to video yourself doing fun stuff for a living. But the reality is, it’s a lot harder work than I thought it would be, and I uploaded what should be just a simple haul.
That being said, I really enjoyed filming it and feel like it’s an opportunity to get more of my personality across. My first thought watching it back was ‘Cringe, do I really sound like that? Why is my makeup not showing up on camera? Did I really just say beautiful and pretty way too many times?’ But I guess nothing is perfect the first time you do it!
I aim to upload every 2 weeks to begin with and see how I get on. I’m not committing to a strict schedule right now. You can expect to see hauls as I am a fashion addict, beauty related content, occasional vlogs and general day to day life.
It’s something I’ve always wanted to do but have been hesitant as I was too worried about people judging me, but after falling ill a number of years ago it made me realise how important it is to embrace life and do the things you want to do regardless of any negative opinions. I don’t even expect anyone to watch it but it feels like a kind of accomplishment for myself.
But, if you have the time, I’d love for you to check out my channel and if you’re feeling really kind, feel free to hit the thumbs up or even stretch to hitting that subscribe button!
