Something I have been mulling over for quite a while now, is the possibility of producing my own blog videos (or short films, I’m not really sure what to refer to it as, especially since the term ‘video’ seems a bit ’90s nowadays!)
Many, many things have put-me-off, or stopped me from doing this – to name but a few here:
My terrible shyness & self consciousness. Although, whilst filming this I was in a room on my own, with just me & the camera, I actually felt fine. Then of course, I remember that by publishing it on the old ‘interweb’ anyone – literally ANYONE can see it, and subsequently hear my ramblings. Which does make me feel a tad uncomfortable and nervous.
I also have developed a bit of a complex about, of all things, my teeth. Yes, I know that sounds COMPLETELY ridiculous! When I was 12, I chipped one of my front teeth, and was unable to get it fixed. As my teeth have grown & shifted over time, it now appears that my teeth are wonky, when in fact it is the chip that makes it appear so. It is also too late now to get it fixed, as my teeth have adapted to that position, and getting it altered would require waaay more sitting in the dentists chair than I would be happy with! I also have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD for short) in my jaw; which causes my jaw to sometimes lock for days, which makes any dental treatment an additional worry.
So anyway, I decided to try and overcome these fears and produce a video! This one is a short little ‘hello’ (I say short, but I do go on for around 3 minutes, and even that is edited down.. I do tend to ramble sometimes..) For those of you that are unable to view the video embedded, click here to go straight to Youtube to view the video there.
I also talk about future videos I would like to produce, so if you would like to know what these are, hit the play button!
I thought I would also include some still shots of my hair from the video, which is basically a ‘poodle do’ with lots of pincurls, decorated with various flowers. Perfect for summer!
I do hope you all enjoy the video, and don’t find my voice too annoying or my rambles too long! You can find the link to Sadie’s hair tutorial which I mention in the video here.
Until next time dears, and please do comment and let me know if there are any particular tutorials/videos/discussions you would like me to produce next.
