So after I enjoyed doing a vlog last week on what motherhood means to me, I’ve done another one!
I’ve been thinking about doing more video for a while, but my lack of skills and knowledge when it comes to filming and editing has so far put me off. But seeing other bloggers like Kate from Wit Wit Woo, Charlotte from Write Like No One’s Watching and Kiran from Mummy Says get their vlog on – and doing it so well – has inspired me. So I’m teaching myself how to do it all. Hence why my videos are, hmm, basic for now, to say the least. But I will learn how to do better captions, title sequences, music, editing, voiceovers and the like – just you wait.
This vlog is me wittering on about some gorgeous buys from H&M Kids. And apologies, I do say the words “gorgeous” and “cute” a lot. Which is a bit annoying. But then, the stuff I’m showing you IS SO GORGEOUS AND CUTE. So let me off, yeah?
Please let me know what you think – either by liking the video over on YouTube, commenting here, commenting on YouTube …. and if you have any vlogging tips, please share them with me!
Ah I love you Ali. Lovely to see your gorgeous face. I could never ever do a vlog, I love video but I am no good at actually talking to the camera I sound such an idiot- your a natural. We love h and m here. X
I often spot H&M on your girls. Looking forward to seeing your face on Tues& Weds this week!!
Loved this Alison, you’re such a natural! Loving the haul video 🙂 And loving the jumper you’re wearing too! I am such an H&M fan (although still Hennes is my mind!) and shop there all the time for my girls, especially Allegra. Can’t believe how good value the clothes are there and some gorgeous designs. Has also become my go-to place for presents for little ones! X
It’ll always be Hennes to me! And love your new blog look!
Alison – You’re the sweetest! I’m still so rubbish at them but it is so much fun having a go 🙂 And what everyone says is true – you are a total natural. You’re also totally allowed to say gorgeous and cute a lot because they are! We love H&M here too. Too cute for little ones! (And mummy too…!) You’ve made my day lovely xx
Your skills far outweigh mine Kiran – I haven’t yet worked out how to do voiceovers or edit clips together – ha!
Really love your vlog and your hair is so pretty!! Also huge fans of the HM children’s line in our household 🙂
I remember when people used to call it Hennes! what a blast from the past. Also I LOVE this, I wish I could just talk at the camera, whenever I try and do it I have to stop and start a million times! I want to do more hauls though so will try again. You’ve made me want to buy all these things and I don’t even have a girl. Although I kinda want the crown myself! xx
I watched this on my phone the other day, it’s fab!
I watched this on my phone the other day, it’s fab! I can also remember when it was Hennes, my mum used to take me shopping there! H and M is fab, so good for kids stuff and so cheap x
Loved it A, you’re such a natural 🙂
You’re so good at this. I had to go on camera every once in a while for work and was horrendous even when scripted. My shop at H&M now and again for my two boys. I find that some of the girls’ leggings are seriously cool for boys too especially now it’s a bit colder and they’re wearing wellies a lot. The girls leggings are a bit brighter and more fun.
oh gawd i’m so OLD, i still call it flippin’ Hennes!!! Lovely picks, I’ve got my eye on those hairbands!
Well done you- great video! I’ve only done a handful myself but I’m really enjoying it and it makes a fresh change for readers. Plus I love seeing and hearing my fave bloggers speak for a change. Great picks- H&M are brilliant for kids clothes…I’m obsessed with their adult range so I can’t wait to have a baby to branch into their other stores! x
ugh I hate hearing my voice so bravo to you – I’m not sure I’d make a vlogger 😉 We love H & M too – such cute and gorgeous stuff!
