VIDEO RECAP: May 2017
I've decided to do a monthly recap post where I cover which videos went live on my channel, both for those who missed it, and for those who want to know a little more behind the videos. Leave me a comment of which ones were your favourite this month, your comments do help me choose what I should focus on with my channel :)
MINIMAL + NATURAL MAKEUP LOOK
I wanted to create a video that felt soft, and had the slight feeling of a morning routine, but only really focused on makeup. I filmed it reasonably quickly in one afternoon, but I was quite happy with the result! I really enjoy wearing very little to no makeup, so it was nice to actually get to show this on my channel. In the video I am wearing the 'Bird In Flight Set' from S.E. By Sant Elia, one of my favourite Australian labels.
MY WARDROBE ESSENTIALS
I have to thank the lovely man I am seeing for giving me a hand with filming this video. We did some tripod shots, which were easy for me to co-ordinate, ad then we had to do some movement and panning shots, which was very funny to direct and also act (? model? something?) in. I showed my current favourite versatile wardrobe pieces with one way to wear each of them. Huge shoutout to Mallrat for letting me use her track 'Inside Voices', go check her out, such a talented little gem.
HOW I'M LOSING WEIGHT WITH PCOS
I really dislike making videos where all I do is sit and talk in front of the camera, but I felt that I had to clarify exactly what training I am doing and how I am eating at the moment, because people have been asking. I will be updating this in June :)
UPDATED SKINCARE MORNING ROUTINE
I filmed this back in April and just wanted to share some products I have been loving at the moment. Another attempt at a more creative video, and some funny behind the scenes for this one ended up on my Instagram stories.
MINIMALISM SERIES: QUALITY > QUANTITY
I feel like this is something I harp on about all the time: choosing quality items rather than a larger quantity of poorly made items. I decided to dedicate an entire video to the topic and my tips for you when you're shopping and looking for your next wardrobe addition.
PCOS VLOG: BLOATING
A casual Follow Me Around style of video because you guys told me you liked those. In this video I show a little bit of the high fat and low carb food I am eating, some exercise from that day, and I bring you along to a photoshoot with me. I often take my own photos or set up the camera entirely and get my friends or boyfriend to take the photos for me, so this time it was a bit different! Breanna Sheather is an incredible photographer, and also a good friend of mine, so I felt pretty comfortable stepping in front of her lens for a little beauty shoot. In this video I also discuss some tips that I use to help prevent bloating.
MEAL PREP: MAY
A meal prep video for May. I usually upload a meal prep video once every 4-6 weeks. This one has lots of low carb meals for fellow keto people.
JUNE BULLET JOURNAL
Back into the bullet journal again and showing you my layout for June!
Thanks to Rachel-Lee for helping me out with some of the filming! I actually filmed this video the night before I left for Japan (I hadn't even packed and was filming...) and Rach was sitting in my lounge room playing with Ducky and giving me a hand with the focus whenever I needed it. I wanted to create something that felt a little more editorial, but still give it a light-hearted voiceover to show that I don't take myself as seriously as it may appear in videos. I opted to adjust the lighting setup to one that suits my face structure better than the regular front-on lighting, and I chose to film it in black and white to focus on the highlights of the products, and light hitting my black hair. Black hair filmed in colour rarely has the same effect, as it just looks like a mass of black and any detail is quite hard to distinguish.
