Jumping In To Beauty Vlogging!

I was having a little Monday morning chat with my friend Dorota from Hypoxi – you know I love it there – click HERE to find out why.  And she said, ‘you’re so easy to talk to, why don’t you do YouTube.’ YouTube?! (insert horror face emoji here) me? 50 year old non-stop natterer who forgets what she was talking about mid-sentence (thanks menopause) and whose train of thought is as messy and disorganised as my kitchen cupboards (Stressed Husband will vouch for that as he’s always getting bonked on the head by a random falling can of beans or loaf of bread whenever he ventures near.) So, basically, with my level of forgetfulness and scatty-ness, I laughed at Dorota’s suggestion. Obviously…

Then I went and did it! I just made a really badly lit, badly scripted (there was no script) video all about my favourite beauty bits that I’m using at the moment. Basically, I came back from the dog walk and plonked my camera up on a shoebox at the dining room table aka my office and chatted a bit about why I love the products I’m using at the moment. So, what I’m trying to say is – I felt the fear and did it anyway!


Before I get trolled or laughed off the blogosphere and YouTube-sphere (eh?) please cut me some slack – I thought the best way to start even thinking about doing videos and making them look all sleek and professional is just to jump in and lose my vlog-ginity – so I did. Remember, be kind!

The products that I spoke about in this vid really are fabulous, so do check them out and click on the names below to see where you can find out more and purchase them.

Also, don’t be alarmed – if I decide to carry on vlogging I promise I will make it more pro-looking and I will comb my hair. Oh, and please subscribe to my YouTube Channel (never thought I’d hear me saying that!)
