First Weekly Fashion Vlog

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a fashion/beauty vlog for some time now. A new beginning and a new challenge! My brain is ticking over with ideas but filming is quite something else!


fashion vlog 1

I hope you will pop over and listen to my Essex drawl! No really, I would so love your support here!

Here I am in my spare Guest/dressing room. I’m hoping to decorate a little later in the year, so I’m super excited about that. I just thought it would be nice to talk about my passion with you all and talk about stuff more in detail.


1st fashion vlog!

Vlog #1 Here it is!

I would love to know your thoughts if you decide to watch. Your input is very important. Please leave in the comments your thoughts or any ideas you may have that I could ramble on about to you all about and if you think I am missing anything here!

I did actually want to add some photos into the film (if that makes sense!) But I was unable to. There is a lot to learn!

    Better late than never !!! HIT ME UP !!!! just found your blog yesterday and watched this video tonight. Fantastic & can’t wait for the next one. Liked the way you talked through each item and best of all they were affordable and accessible. Thank you x

    Well done – I tend to read blogs while the TVs on or before in bed so they don’t always work for me, I’m afraid, unless I can get the gist without sound! Love the outfits though, thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo !

    Hit me up! Really a delightful video! I loved all of your outfits, the combinations were simply lovely! I really liked the navy jacket, and the cute Joules bag as well. You did a fantastic job!

    Very good Vlog! I have my own vlog that I let slip but I am planning on going back to it soon. I LOVE that coat! It’s beautiful and exactly the kind of thing I would wear. I will subscribe to show my support:) #LGRTStumble

    I have thought about making vlogs or videos from time to time. I travel a bit, so I always think it would be cool to make travel diaries. However I don’t have a nice camera that takes video or the programs to do the editing. Ah well. One day.


  10. March 21, 2018 / 10:54 am

    Well done with the vlog. You are braver than I am. #bloggersbest

  11. March 21, 2018 / 9:58 am

    Well done Laurie, I’d love to do vlogs but I’m not brave enough just yet! You are very likeable and I enjoyed watching you. I also love the boho style (and that dress)! I just found the sound a bit quiet, maybe that was my computer? And I would love to see some of the details close-up like the buttons and seams you talked about. What protective spray did you use on your boots – that’s a good idea never heard of that. #Tweensteensbeyond

    HIT ME UP, Laurie!! Loved the video. You’re definitely getting more confident as you go along.
    What camera do you use for your videos because it’s very clear and in focus the whole time!? I’m about to re-start my Youtube channel. I’m planning on doing my first video this afternoon actually! Wish me luck!

    As you were holding up the outfit pieces, I could picture you in the blog that they came from. Good work, and love your style. Keep it up, and ‘hit me up’. We don’t have the same stores here in Canada, but the look can easily be replicated.

    This was great Laurie!!
    I’ve been trying to do more videos, but it’s a lot harder (or newer) with so much to learn!!

    • laurie
      March 17, 2018 / 4:19 pm

      Tell me about it, Jodie! I’m very determined once I have a bee in my bonnet! I’m sure I can improve a lot as I go along! xx

  28. March 16, 2018 / 1:06 pm

    I really enjoyed your video! Congratulations on a job well done! ‘One suggestion, though, if you don’t mind. As you show the items, be careful not to hold them in front of your face. It’s nice to hear your thoughts on each piece. Your accent is lovely! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
