10 Things YouTube Has Taught Me (so far)…

Hey lovelies!

To make up for no blog post on Sunday and a Boots Haul instead, I thought I’d do a midweek treat for ya! As you all know, I’ve gotten really stuck into my youtube channel and have become a little addicted. I’m still learning and continue to find new things to do whether it’s editing or filming – I love it! 

If you’re new then HEY! I’m on youtube and here’s my channel if you wanted to check out some of my videos! (it’s still small but I’m getting there ok).

There’s been a few things that I’ve noticed about myself while vlogging/making videos and I thought I’d share them with you. It may be helpful to those who are already on a youtube journey or want to start! Leave me your channels in the comments!

Pre-Summer Panics

Hello peeps!

Hope you’ve been enjoying my extra posts recently, now that summers here and uni is over for the academic year. I’ve taken up vlogging – be sure to check me out on youtube and even subscribe!

This post, as you’ve guessed, is all about those pre-summer thoughts that create a slight level of panic in you. I’m currently 6/10 in the panic zone but it’s increasing daily as I’m my holiday is in 2 weeks. 2 WEEKS. So what best to do than blog about it rather than work out, right?

The Struggles Of Being Indecisive

Hey Peeps!

Before I get into this blog post, I just want to let you know that I’ve started to VLOG! I’m finally getting in front of a camera, taking you around with me (including holidays) and putting the voice behind the blog. Let’s hope you like my accent right?

Feel free to head on over to my youtube channel where my first vlog is waiting for you. If you liked it, give it a thumbs up and even subscribe?! Who knew I’d be sounding exactly like everyone else on youtube. lol.

I am an INCREDIBLY indecisive person most of the time. And it even annoys me. As I said in my previous post, I will not be giving up blogging so why not share some struggles I have daily when trying to make decisions! Let me know if anything sounds familiar…

Behind The Blog: Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Hello lovelies,

As I posted on Twitter earlier this morning, I was feeling up close and personal with my blog and decided to break the mould a little in terms of my blogging style. I hope that’s ok with some of you – I understand it’s not what you expected from me today, let me know if you enjoyed it or not and it will give me an indicator as to what to post next!

My youtube channel is all set up and ready, I’ve got my vlogging camera and am waiting on a memory card. Instead of making the big jump straight from blog to youtube, I thought this would break everyone in a little easier if you’re going to have a snoop at my vlogs! Feel free to subscribe so you’re all set up.

So here are 21 random facts about me that you may not know otherwise…

Thoughts When Breaking Up For Summer

Hello fellow bloggers,

Thanks for all your support over me releasing my youtube channel! I’m amazed that people have subscribed already so they’re set up and ready to watch my summer adventures. Feel free to do the same by clicking here, or if you wanna wait till I’ve uploaded that’s totally cool too. I’ll be sure to link my holidays/travelling/gym vlogs on here.

I’ve recently finished 3 years at university. 3 YEARS. So I thought I’d share some thoughts of panic/excitement/sadness that I’ve had whilst realising that it’s an end to a massive era of my life. This chapter of university has helped to make me who I am today and it’s over so I wanted to blog about it. (sorry that got deep). Whatever:

Secret Wishes Of A Health & Lifestyle Blogger

Hey peeps,

Before I start this weeks blog post, I just want to direct you to my amazing new header! It’s had a major re-vamp and it’s all down to Yaansoon over at Yaansoon Illustrations. I am obsessed with it! It was done by freehand with water colour and ink, check a video here on how it was done or simply check out their blog for more designs that could suit your blog too! It’s so gorgeous and perfect for a lifestyle blog. I hope you like it as much as I do…let me know what you think guys pretty please!

This week, I’ve been thinking about bloggers who have made it big and how at some point we wish we were them (and then snap back to reality). I think we can all relate in being a little envious of these people at times right? So I thought I’d put together some things that we all do and then wish for the best possible outcome…

Jealous Thoughts About Healthy Food Bloggers

Hello Peeps,

Thank you for all the birthday wishes and letting me know I now have responsibilities as a 21 year old. And with all the busy birthday parties, I totally missed the 700 followers milestone and yesterday I just hit 800 (?!). Thank you so much all of you lovely lot, old and new followers. The support means a lot and I continue to grow as a blogger with all of your comments on my posts. Just knowing you enjoyed them is more than enough!

The more honest the post the more respect I get from you lot as followers (I think?)…or you’re all just pulling my leg making me post more and more embarrassing thoughts that I have DAILY.

This post is all about my envious thoughts on the people that, no matter what, will always have their overnight oats ready and waiting, or a green smoothie made within 5 seconds with no mess in a mason jar. Basically, healthy floggers (food bloggers) that really have their sh*t together. Here are my jealous thoughts when I see your posts…

What To Do After A Good Old Binge

Hello again people,

I thought this post is a very relevant one to me right now. As mentioned in My Reasons For A Bad Workout post, I’m home for the weekend. And being home for the weekend means FOOD. AND A LOT OF IT. Also, it’s a shed load of birthday celebrations in the family. So, I guess you could say I’m indulging right now. Like a pig in mud. And it’s great!!

But I thought maybe I could offer some tips and tricks (some of which I will be taking and doing myself when I return back to uni tomorrow) for any of you who’ve had a binge weekend or got one coming up or even just to keep in mind for the near future…

Please feel free to follow and communicate with me on any of these platforms! Any expansion of communication with you lovely lot makes me happy so to do all three (with the same username…woah I know) is awesome.

Also: I NEED PEOPLE TO FOLLOW!
It’s not gonna be that much fun without giving something back to you so let me know your usernames

As I’ve just started up – I don’t look that great. That’s a given I guess, but if some of you want to follow now in prep for some twitter chats and instagram likes – that’s totally cool!

Leave your usernames for some apps in the comments and I’ll be sure to give you a follow on it, if that’s too much effort (understandable, its a sunday) I’ll simply give you a follow back.

Exciting new chapter, can’t wait to share it with you all and hopefully inspire some of you to join me with it!

Love Life, Lexi!
