The more eagle eyed of you may have noticed that I've been getting more and more into my Youtube videos recently. As much as I love traditional blogging, there's something really refreshing about making videos, and now that I feel I've found my feet a bit I'm really enjoying it. It was something I was reluctant to try at first since I'd heard Youtube could be a pretty brutal place, but honestly I've so enjoyed the past few months, and the community interaction has been fantastic. I won't be leaving this blog behind -don't worry- but you can definitely expect to see more and more video content this year. It's really renewed my love for blogging, and just in time for the warmer weather.
Until recently, my videos were primarily based around tags, challenges, and personal content. However, since this blog is rooted in personal style, I figured it was about time that I began incorporating more fashion content. I did the Closet Confidential Tag, a Sister Style Swap with my little sister Poppy, and this afternoon I published this Spring Lookbook video after working on it for the past week. My lovely husband Grant filmed and edited it for me, and the wonderful Bryony Foale let me use one of her songs, 'Daydreaming', as the soundtrack. Considering it's my first attempt at a lookbook I'm so pleased with it, and I hope you all enjoy it too!
P.S. It's that time of year again! If you enjoy reading Briar Rose, I'd be over the moon if you'd consider nominating me for 'Best Personal Style Blog' in the Company Style Blogger Awards. Last year I made it onto the shortlist, but I didn't win, so this year I'm taking another crack at it! Company is a magazine that continually inspires me to work my hardest in ensuring that all of my content is the best it can be, so being recognised by them is about as good as it gets. Thank you so much!
