My First Video!

Guess what guys? I finally put together my first Video Blog!! (or Vlog as I think the kids call it these days.  ;) )

I'm still learning how to use the video function of my camera so I'm out of focus for the first minute or so but I get in focus later on. I still need to figure out a few other things as well. BTW if you are wondering, this was shot on my Canon 5D Mark II so using a dslr camera as a video camera is a bit different than a regular video camera. I'm pleased with my first video but hope that I can get better in later videos. I hope you guys enjoy it!

And I know for those of you that are at work or don't have time to watch it right now, below are pictures of the products I talked about in the video. (but I hope that you come back later to watch my video!) For all my future videos I plan on doing the same, having a video and a corresponding post so don't worry, I'm not jumping into the video blogging thing just yet. I still enjoy writing my blog but now will have some videos mixed in!

Oh and if you guys want to know when I put new videos up (you will most likely get a sneak peek of the videos before the blog post since I have to upload them first) then please subscribe to my channel!   (And let me know if you have a channel, I'm new to the whole youtube thing and would love to subscribe to some channels!)

Would love to get your comments/feedback about the video and if there are any topics you'd like me to cover in my future videos!

Oh! I have new buttons on the side of my blog.  They link to my videos, blog shop and reviews blog so if you are reading through your reader, click on over to check them out, they are soooo cute!  (thanks to my hubs) :)

P.S. It's going to be a light posting week as I, like many of you, are going to take a little Thanksgiving break!  I will also be slow (err slower than usual) to answer emails but will get back to you as soon as I can. XOXO

  1. Great video! You sound so lovely in the video. It's a good idea to buy the smaller nail polish bottles cuz I never finished a whole bottle either. The Urban Decay nail polish set is to die for. Thanks for sharing and Happy Thanksgiving to you

  3. You are too adorable! Loved the video. I'm a sucker for sets as well...they just call to me with all their fun variety and great prices.

    As for future video ideas - I always love seeing product reviews or how-to videos on makeup and hair. I would also love to see something like a closet tour or 'what's in my bag' kind of thing, or possibly a start-to-finish of how you pick out an outfit and accessories, anything like that.

    I look forward to more videos!

  9. I really liked the video.
    You had very good lighting and the quality is so clear. I was eyeing that Urban Decay nail polish set but didn't get it.
    Can't wait for the next videos.

  15. Yay! vlogs are always fun to watch :) That Nars lip color looks really good on you! I've never been a fan of lipstick or lip glosses, maybe because I've never found a formula or color that I like. I'll have to look into the Nars ones! :)

  22. OMG Tiffany! SO CUTE!! I totally thought you would have sounded different - isn't that funny? Not really sure how to explain how I THOUGHT you would sound, but yeah.

    Great video and the product pictures are fantastic.

    PS - I know I don't comment often, but it's because the commentor is blocked at work. If it's a pop-up commenting box, it seems to work, but all others don't. Most blogs I can't even access at work, fortunately I'm able to access yours and it's a daily 'stop' on my morning blog route :) Just wanted to share.

  26. Hi Tiffany! I LOVE your new vlog/video! You are just as sweet and adorable as your readers would think! I've been toying with the idea of doing a video for awhile too. LOve that you chose the NARS products to review. I love the lipsticks and blushes and eyeshadows. Glad to hear you like their matte lipsticks. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  30. You're so adorable! I loved the video and I'm totally going to get that set of lip gloss (I'm a sucker for sets too!).

    Maybe for the next one you should do something about your shoes! I would love that. But definitely keep the makeup posts up too :)

    Great job!
