The Youtube Venture

I’m not the biggest fan of Youtube, but it astounds me that people have made a very lucrative living off of making Youtube videos. Since I’ve had a few expensive occurrences come up in my life recently, I’ve been looking for ways to earn some extra income – so I thought of Youtube.

It occurred to me that lipstick swatches would be a potentially popular way to get views (and ad clicks), especially since I have quite a large collection of certain brands. My first video for Besame was so easy to do in relation to the swatches I could’ve done for liquid to matte brands. My camera isn’t made for making videos and it’s not the best, but I think I did an OK job.

Honestly, the Youtube family isn’t really something I’m interested in getting into, which is why I decided to start a blog rather than a Youtube channel, but I often feel that my written blog alone isn’t enough. I have a whopping 7 views on my video right now but after doing a little bit more research on video views and channel growth, I’ve decided it might not actually be worth investing my time and liquid lippies into videos that might only get a few views, save the few dollars I might make. But oh well. At least now I know.

So it looks like I’m going to stick to my little blog for now, and now you know about my little venture for the week. I have quite a few reviews and some pretty exciting OOTDs coming up, but as I mentioned earlier, I’ve been hit a wee bit financially so I’m trying to refrain from spending. Unit next time. ★

The Post-Thanksgiving Rush

I hate to admit that I splurged on Black Friday weekend – for myself. There were so many good deals going on and I couldn’t resist. Does that make me a bad person? I think not since I still have time to go Christmas shopping.

Anyway, I did something for my dad that required me to surrender my only SD card and I didn’t have time to buy another one until Sunday. In the meantime, I was able to get a few iPod pics of my outfits this week, but seeing as they’re not great, I’ll just use this time to express my excitement for the holidays this year – and also to let you know that I’ve been busy! With the holidays and everything, my schedule has been booked so I haven’t had time to blog or even put that much effort into blog prepping. My apologies but I do hope to have another outfit post next week.

You can look forward to lipstick swatches and new outfits to come, and I’d like to do more in “beauty” even though that’s a weaker spot for me. I tried a new hairdo today but not only did my hair not turn out the way I wanted it, I felt physically incapable of creating the hairdo – eep. (But that’s part of why I created this blog – to learn and improve.)

Stay warm, everyone!

Well pardon me for promising to have an interesting life when I’ve spent my time doing nothing noteworthy. I’ve read, I’ve partied, and I’ve spent hours online/on Netflix. Transitioning to a full-time job is taking quite a bit of energy out of me.

I turned twenty-two last week. It’s probably the first birthday when I really wasn’t that excited or anxious to celebrate. I was excited to get presents and was going to blog about it, but then I realised I got books, some cute socks, and one dress. In any event, my new dress is pictured below. (I think it needs to be ironed but I’m not quite sure where my iron is.)

My new Heart of Haute dress!

On another note, I’m so ready for autumn. This humidity and heat is killing me and my furry friends. The next time I blog, it will hopefully be 10 degrees cooler (but I can only hope).
