A lot of people have been asking me to vlog and show off my life and friends outside of the internet, so I wanted to at least cover one of those topics here in a vlog… blog? Is that what it would be called? A blog post just hanging out and chatting about cool things that happened this week. I would introduce my friends, but there are a few problems with that. The first being I don’t normally tell people I work on the internet ( You don’t fully understand how hardcore older people can judge you until you’ve answered the question “oh, so where do you work?” with “I work on the internet making videos and content” .An experience I’d rather not repeat on a daily basis. ) and the second being we really don’t do anything vlog-worthy anyways. I’m much more of an alone-time kind of person ( INFP personalities represent, amiright? ). So here are some things I’ve been up to lately!
2017 has been one of the craziest for me yet, and it’s only a month and a half in. I’ve been growing online so much and it’s been amazing and completely overwhelming at the same time. I had a few videos get very popular and have grown my YouTube channel from 2,000 to over 70,000 in the matter of two months and for me that’s pretty crazy! I used to wish I had even half of the exposure I have at almost 100,000 subscribers, but it’s definitely different than I thought it would be. It’s humbling and a little bit scary to think that so many people watch what you say and do and it can easily influence how you act or make you worry that you’ll say something wrong or hurt someone’s feelings. I also finally realized I’m not able to chat with every single person who leaves me a comment, DM’s me, or tweets me. I thought I could, so I would always sit down every morning and spend four or five hours just messaging people back and just letting it take up my entire day ( one of the reasons content has been slower here or on my other socials ) until I finally cracked, cried a lot, and realized I couldn’t do it anymore. Now I feel really bad for ever thinking badly about people who didn’t always talk to their fans and followers because I’m sure they’re doing the best they can! Just a lil bit of a peek into a content creator’s mind haha. Seriously though, if you’ve ever commented something or tried to talk to me I love you so much for it! Just keep trying! I always spend a few hours per day going through them all and having conversations with you guys 🙂
Hmmm, what else have I been doing? I’ve been buying a lot ( seriously, It’s a problem and I need to stop lol ) of makeup from new products to new collections. I just ordered most of the ColourPop X Alexis Ren collection and FINALLY cot my shipping email today. The colors were beautiful, most of them falling into the classic scarlette reds and dusty mauve nudes categories and I knew I had to test them out for you guys ( I’ve also been looking everywhere to replace my ride-or-die red lipstick I just found out was discontinued last year and these looked super promising! ). I’ll keep you updated on what I think of everything so watch out for some posts about them 🙂
The beginning of the month we went to Epcot in Disney World for a new festival they’re having, Festival of the Arts. If you’re not familiar with Epcot, they always have annual festivals each year that focus on different things ( Food & Wine, Flower & Garden, ect. ). This was a new thing they started and it was a festival that was supposed to celebrate art by hosting a ton of local artists, performers, and sharing tons of awesome ( and artistically decorated ) foods from around the world. We went over a weekend because they had some AMAZING looking desserts that I had to try. I’m hoping I have some pictures of them I can add to show you, but they were so pretty! Some of my favorites were the Sweet Potato Cheesecake, Gingerbread Funnel Cake, and a flight of white, milk, and dark drinking chocolates. SO GOOD!
Other than that, I really haven’t been doing too much thats worth talking about here ( And not mentioning the most eventful thing that’s happened today is that me and my sister managed to finish off two bags of peanut butter cups oops ). I’ve really just been doing a lot of media and editing and things like that 🙂
What have YOU been doing this week?? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
