Current Favourites & Hello YouTube!


Well, I don't think I've been this excited, or nervous, about publishing a blog post since my very first one back in 2014. Ever since then, it's been my intention to start a YouTube channel, but for various reasons, I've found that to be easier said than done, which is something I talked about earlier this year in my 5 Ways I Want To Improve As A Blogger post. One thing I didn't mention in that post, was that when I made my new year's resolutions back in January, one of my goals was to get at least one video live on YouTube before 2017 ended. I'm cutting it fine, but I've achieved it, and I couldn't be more thrilled!

As you might expect for a first video, it's not particularly polished. Some of the transitions are pretty awkward, there are no slick cutaways, I fidget quite a lot and I say 'um...' about fifty thousand times, but everyone has to start somewhere, right?!

You can find the video by clicking this link, or you check out my YouTube channel, but if you prefer, you can just watch right here.

If you're interested in any of the items I talked about in the video, you can take a closer look at them here.

Ren & Now To Sleep Pillow Spray*

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara*

River Island Pyjamas

Zara Jumper

Primark Boots

And that's it for today! If you're a Youtuber, I would love it if you left a link to your channel in the comments below, as I'm looking forward to connecting with people over there.
