Summer in the City is the UK’s biggest Youtube gathering and I was lucky enough to go to the first day, which is the Creator Day. I also beat Steven dressed as a sumo.
Today’s #BEDN prompt is ‘beauty’, and my first thought was to write something cheesy about how ‘beauty is only skin deep’ or something, but I haven’t had enough wine for that!
However, it did bring to mind the hoards of Zoella-esque Beauty Gurus, with their ‘on fleek’ eyebrows and ombre lips and smokey eyes, and yet as we have seen here, I haven’t got a bloody clue! Regular guest blogger Bethan is my own personal beauty guru and every time she answers my panicked texts (wtf is an eyelash primer?!) with cool calm confidence, I wonder where I was when everyone else was at ‘how to be a successful woman’ classes?!
Today’s #BEDN prompt is “style”. I’m currently sat here in my PJs and a giant varsity hoody from a University I didn’t even go to – so safe to say that I am not the right person to talk style in regards to fashion! That said, I decided I’d do a little home office tour, as it’s the only room in the house that is entirely mine, (& the kitten’s too of course!) and I think it shows off my “style” the best.
I’ve only ever seen a few of Zoella’s vlogs and they’re fine. I don’t think I am the target audience, so she is certainly not my favourite vloggers, however as an avid fan of all Youtube culture, it was never in doubt that I would end up reading her debut novel, Girl Online. I read the whole thing in less than 12 hours, and I’m surprised to say that I didn’t hate it.
If you follow me on Twitter (@Codiekinz), you’ll know that when I am doing anything creative, I obsessively listen to slam poetry. I am in love with the words, passion and feelings that come with this particular type of poetry and so I felt as though it was time to share my favourite Youtube playlist for anyone else who may …
I am so excited to be able to share this project with you! The idea came to me in the middle of the night (as the best ideas do!) after weeks of desperately trying to think of a good topic for a video. Instead of just thinking of just one video idea, I came up with a whole channel idea!
