How is Vlogmas Going?



Since I decided to do Vlogmas for my channel on Youtube I have been kicking myself that I also didn’t do Blogmas. I plan to stay on top of my blog in 2015 and have purchased a planner to make sure that happens. Had I done Blogmas it would have forced me to post daily. Alas, Vlogmas happened.

There are some of the thumbnails.

It has been a lot of fun and a little difficult to vlog daily. I vlog on my cell phone – the Droid Turbo and it actually does really well making it easy for me to vlog pretty much anywhere.

There are boring days, days where nothing happens, and days when just the most random stuff comes up. Nonetheless, I have been enjoying vlogmas and watching vlogs for all my Youtube friends Vlogmas days. If you are doing it this year, leave your channel in the comments, and I will check it out!!

Happy Vlogmas and December!

Thanks as always for reading!




Plight of the Youtuber

I adore making videos. It is so much fun to talk to the camera and come up with videos. That’s all it is though, it’s a lot of fun. I’m not trying to make money off of it or my blog. I have other ventures out there which I am trying to make money with, but when it comes to Youtube it’s really just for fun.

I have met a lot of people who are simply trying to make money. They worry about views, comments, promo, and sponsorship. I think that sucks all the fun out of it. Would I like 50,000 people to watch me put on makeup and think I’m a genius, yes, but I know that isn’t going to happen.

I have another Youtube channel for my makeup business, and I keep it completely separate, because I am not trying to sell anything on bowsnnails I’m just trying to play with makeup and have a good time. If you like it great! If you wanna comment great! If not, I’ll just keep making videos because it’s fun for me. I have some different ones coming out because I’m not trying to impress anyone. I’m just going to do me, and I hope if you are thinking of starting a channel or have one already that you are in it for fun. I hope you’re just going to do you.

Interview with the YouTuber – Beauty and Bliss

Today’s interview is with Hope from Beauty and Bliss!


What is the one makeup product you can’t live without?

I wouldn’t be able to live without a good finishing spray or primer that helps keep my face matte. My face is oily, so there is no way my makeup would stay in place if I didn’t use them.

Why did you decide to start making videos?

I’ve always loved makeup. I’ve done tons of makeup applications for homecomings, proms, and events. I also got addicted to watching YouTube videos and reading blogs. After about a year and a half of wishing I could do it, I made it happen!

What’s your favorite color?

Pink! I own way too much pink stuff haha.

What is your favorite brand?

For high-end, I’ve been loving Estee Lauder recently. For drugstore, I’m a huge fan of both Revlon and NYX.

What’s one interesting thing about you?

I’ll be starting beauty school in the fall for a career in makeup artistry and Esthetics.

Do you believe in UFO’s?

Not really, but I do think some of the things people come up with about them are interesting!

How do you feel about zombies?

They don’t really bother me. I watch movies and television shows with them included all of the time.

What’s your favorite color eyeshadow?

I’ve been absolutely loving YDK by Urban Decay lately!

Tell us about your channel and blog:

I started my blog in September of 2013, and I started uploading videos onto my YouTube channel about a month after that. Both are centered around beauty, but I also blog/vlog about lifestyle, fashion, crafts, and just whatever I’m in the mood for. I’m hoping to make a huge success out of my blog and YouTube channel!
