I Made A YouTube Video: Chi Chi Haul!




OMG, you guys. Once a year, I decide I'm Martin Scorsese, and that I can star in, direct and produce an award-winning piece of cinema. So I watch countless YouTube videos on how to actually make a YouTube video, then actually make one, then spend days freaking out, put out countless warnings that it will be shitty, upload it and try to avoid advertising it altogether. LOL.

Well fudge that shizz! I'm going for gold this time. I even monetized it despite only having 2 channel subscribers (don't worry YouTube aren't stupid enough to actually put ads on it). Just another gentle reminder that I have no idea what I'm doing and you will be completely underwhelmed.

The video itself is all about my recent Chi Chi Haul, which you can also check out in this post. Here it is, in all its glory....







Also, if you're super into terribly-produced videos, you may want to check out my other offering, in which my son paints my nails. It's called Zach Paints My Nails! (lol) and you can see that here.

I'm linking up to the Midweek BeYOUty Bonanza Link Up Party and the Fabulous and Fun Life Monday Makeup Madness Linky Party!

    1. Haha thanks! I probably won't make another one for ages lol. And I'm probably too real for my own good haha, but I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

  11. You do yourself an injustice Di - really enjoyed your vid, felt like I was in your loungeroom and we were having a chat. I bought those cheapie little crayons too, have only worn them once or twice, and I have the Sunkissed palette too but haven't cracked it open yet. Thank goodness for Chi Chi sales!

  16. Yay you! I do not do well on video or even commentary for that matter. Add some of your humour as mentioned above and you will grow your channel quick.
    I'm not huge on make-up however the older I get (the more wrinkles I find) the more interested I am so keep up the great work so I know whether these products are worth my time and money.

    Stopping by from #MummyMondays - thanks for linking up!
