Why YouTube wasn’t for me … | Rambles

Back in may 2014/15 I started a YouTube channel. This was wah back when the “British squad” Zoe etc were like really really big. I had first started a Instagram account called “Floral ruby” I didn’t even like floral & pastel that much but that was the thing at the time because of Anastasia, lilly & quisha. So from that Instagram account I progressed into starting a YouTube channel.

When I done YouTube I met these amazing people online, we were all really close & spoke all the time. As well as this group of internet friends I also had other online friends. Then people started quitting YouTube & Instagram, they came online less etc & then I basically grew apart from most of them.

This is one of the reasons why I did quit, plus I just wasn’t that into making videos anymore. It was no longer “me”. I quit YouTube in late 2016/17. Then in 2017 I decided to begin blogging, I first started on weebly but soon enough came to WordPress.

I’m going to be honest, there’s not been a time where I’ve missed doing YouTube. There’s of course been times where I’ve missed my internet friends & I still do. But I’m glad I converted to blogging because its so much more me. I’ve always loved writing & I love being able to share my thoughts.

Thank you for reading if you did, I apologise for it being so rambly & probably quite boring but I just felt like doing this post. Do any of you remember old school YouTube with all the floral channels?

What are scent stiks? | Scent stiks review

Scent republik is a cruelty free brand that sells six different scents of “scent stiks” which are essentially perfume stiks. They have a pen style nib & you can draw on you’re wrists to use the product. Each one contains 3.5ml and they are very travel friendly as they are small tubes and can easily fit into pockets & handbags. Each different scent has a different colour packaging & are super cute.

These would be amazing stocking stuffer for younger siblings, younger family members or friends. Its such a fun product and anybody can use it. They are sold in super drug stores & can also be found in “The perfume shop” they retail at £4:95 each.

I have the scents “No chill” and “Fab”.

•No chill smells like “Marine aqua, apple blossom and sweat citrus”.

•Fab smells like ” Sweet vanilla, mandarin and rich praline “.

You can also layer up the fragrances so draw a couple different ones on you’re skin.

Thank you for reading, you can find scent Republik on Instagram herehere. Also if you click herehere it will take you to their website.

Why I didn’t take photography at school…

At my school you’re able to take photography at higher, last year many of my friends took photography, but I didn’t. I love love love photography, as most of you all know. But the school course just wasn’t for me.

I might be wrong in what I’m saying but as far as I know, you basically have six or eight shoots ( eg. Street, food,landscape,animals,light, colour etc… ) So its basically six or eight different topics in which you take pictures for & then you get some of the photos printed out, stick them into a photography book & write about each photo. You say the different techniques you used to capture each picture and so on.

Last year, there was no written exam for photography you’re photography book was just sent away and that what was what determined you’re exam result. Apparently they judged you on whether you’re pictures were glued in right, how you stuck them down etc etc.

Although I love photography, I didn’t want to take it. This is because I knew it would suck all the fun out of it, I love it as a hobby & if I was to do it then I don’t think I’d ever enjoy as much. It would start to feel like a chore & I would lose interest.

I didn’t want to get graded on something I find enjoyable, be compared to other people. Feel like I wasn’t as good as others, feel like I wasn’t good enough.

So that’s it, I’m sorry if I just utterly bored you all to sleep. I just felt like posting about this, it may even help any of you make a choice if you’re indecisive. Thankyou for reading if you got to the end, somehow.
