The weather's chilly and the dresses frilly.

DRESS FROM PEPA LOVES* | CAPE FROM MOD DOLLY x SKETCHSTREET*
LOCKET FROM RIVER ISLAND | HEELS FROM H&M

Today's post is a little bit different. Granted, it's a fairly standard outfit post - featuring a downright beautiful dress from Pepa Loves - however I've also put on my big girl knickers branched out into the scary world of video blogging.

I'm a little bit terrified. My SLR doesn't have video capabilities, so for the time being I'm having to make do with my iPad camera. However, it's not just the video quality that's concerning me, it's things like the way I carry myself, my (admittedly rather deep) voice and the manner I articulate myself in. It's very honest and raw, and I hope I don't act or sound too different from the way people imagined me to! I'm still learning the ropes, I just need to get a few more videos under my belt. What kind of thing would people be interested in seeing?

Tomorrow we are due snow, and lots of it. I don't have university so, even if there isn't quite enough to warrant a full blown snow day, I'll be ready and waiting with my camera at first sign on the white stuff! I've always wanted to do a snowy outfit post.

Earlier today my blog reached 300,000 pageviews, a landmark I never expected to reach when I first started out. Thank you so much to everyone who visits my little corner of the internet, whether you're a daily visitor or if you only check in from time to time. I'm delighted to have any readers at all, and every good thing that's happened to me through this blog is down to you lot. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  1. You own the most beautiful clothes! I'm in love with the cape! I've been wanting to start a youtube channel aswell but I also worry about my voice and what not, apparently I sound like I'm constantly asking a question :(! I really want that River Island tapestry dress too!

  4. OMG! Can I just have your closet? xD I simply love all your outfit posts, I wonder if you will ever post one were I will think "Nah.."
    Don't worry about your voice, it didn't let me down. Your voice's so calm ^^

  5. I think you've been really successful at vlogging, you seem really natural :) the iPad quality is still good, you can see the detail on the dresses etc, but it'll be great when you have a video camera! I'm so tempted to try a vlog, as I'm really enjoying watching everyone else's, but I'd be scared of boring people ahaha! I really enjoyed watching your video though, and I'm very much in love with both of those tapestry dresses.
    The outfit post is really sweet as usual :) I look forward to some snowy outfit pictures, though I'll be super jealous as we never seem to get snow in Southampton and I might fall over in shock if it does! xxx

  24. I think your video's great! Especially for a first time vlog. I believe I said I liked your voice on Skype once, donkeys years ago. It's approachable and professional, and your accent is so rich. I'm a little bit envious of it, actually. And you have a really great manner on camera; natural, relaxed and genuine.
