Backlog and Bandwagon?

I have so many blog drafts just waiting to be finished. But then I wait too long to publish it and something else happens. These are serious problems here. I mean really. -.-

This is the first time I actually have a summer vacation. My summer semester has ended so now I can relax before classes at UH start. Summer is going by super fast though and I’ve been having a blast. (Do people still say blast?) My mom is not ready to send me back to Houston just yet. The other day she told me that she’s not letting me go back until I absolutely have to. And I don’t start classes until the 27th of August? And since I have all of this time, all I have been doing is watching youtube videos, reading (a lot), sewing (nothing is coming out they way I want it to), and shopping. Now besides the normal vlogs I usually watch, I have actually started subscribing to a few channels that do the ever trendy outfit of the day/haul/monthly favorites videos. Some may see these types of videos as showing off. But I see these videos as being actually helpful. They show case new products from popular stores and they put you in a shopping mood. That might not always be a good thing though.¬† Anyway, now I don’t shop very often and I don’t wear make up but these videos make me want to be more feminine. Being female is awesome so I should embrace¬† that right? I’m not wanting to change who I am because I like being me. But I do think it would be fun to start doing a favorites blog entry/vlog every now and then. I used to update my blog with daily outfit posts, but I pretty much posted a picture of every outfit combination I have. Like I said I don’t shop very often and if I do it’s mostly books or fabric. But I’ve been buying a few items here and there this summer so I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and see how it goes. Editing takes a lot of time because my camera poops out a codex that premiere doesn’t seem to like. So editing is a complicated process that just makes me sleepy. But I’m going to try it anyway. We shall see what happens. The picture to the left is just some things that I didn’t mention in my haul video, oh and I’m starting to get the hang of styling my hair. If you watch the video below you will notice that I can now wear my bangs down. I’m happy!

What do you think of my first haul video? I’m still working on camera angles and I’m not an expert on video editing at all but I’ll work on it. :3 Is there certain types of videos you watch on youtube?

    Vlogging is a GREAT idea for you! I loved this one.

    I must say… for someone who doesn’t shop very often, you are really stylish! I LOVE the lacy/flowy top you were wearing in this video. If you don’t mind me asking, about how much did you pay for these things at Rue 21?

    I don’t think I have a Rue 21 near me… but I do have a forever 21. I’m pretty sure those two stores are similar.

    Keep this vlog thing going! (pretty please, from one of your beloved readers!)

    @Kristen, Awww thanks. :D The shirt I’m wearing was 18.99 and the cardigans were 12. There used to be a forever 21 in my mall but then it closed and they put in a Rue 21.
    Thanks for rooting for me. :3

    Nice video. Cute clothes, I like the summer dress. I have been wanting to do some videos for my blog, but it kind of freaks me out. You however, did a great job:)

    @Debi F, Thanks so much for reading and commenting. :3 And yeah vlogging can be scary, but I think you should just leap in and give it a try. Once you get over that initial fear, it won’t be as scary. :D Good luck and thanks for stopping by.
