Don't ask what compelled me to start a YouTube channel. I can barely keep up with blogging on a regular basis as it is, but somehow, I thought adding another social media channel into the mix was a good idea. I don't know, I guess I thought it seemed like fun and there are some things that are just better communicated through video than image and text. As I see more and more of my favourite bloggers get into YouTube, it definitely encouraged me to do so too, and as much I love reading blogs, it's fun to see another side of people and feel like they're actually talking to me in person!
Don't get too excited though. YouTube isn't going to become a regular thing as my blog is still my number one priority when it comes to my creative hobbies. Plus, as I've learnt from my first time filming myself, I am far much better off behind the camera than in front of it! When I do upload a video from time to time, however, expect to see hauls, tags and maybe a get ready with me here and there as they're my favourite videos to watch.
My debut on YouTube is a collective haul of some Topshop clothing and beauty bits I accumulated over the last couple of months of 2014. Yes, that was a while ago now, but it's taken me this long to muster up the courage to take the video off private for the world to see! It's not an amazingly well put together video - I'm still getting used to editing, talking to a camera, not looking in the viewfinder and focusing my camera properly! It annoys me, but hey, this is my first go and hopefully I'll get better!
So, without further ado, here is my first YouTube video. Like, comment, subscribe - you know the drill!
