The Weekly Vlog #18

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 13.41.43

And so we meet again. The highlights of the past seven days, compacted down into one easy to digest video bite. Last week was one of those ‘surgically attached to my laptop ones’ so a quick warning must be issued that it may not be the most adventure strewn Weekly Vlog of them all, but as always there were a few entertaining moments mostly involving Lily. Oh and the pigeons – don’t forget the pigeons. At present time I’m writing this post getting ready to prep a day bag for a trip to Paris tomorrow so expect things to be ‘un jeux plus aventureux‘ for the next instalment…

    So jealous you got to go to the What If premiere! Also congrats on the nominations.. I voted for you 🙂

  • Congratulations on the nomination, it is so deserved! I am super jealous that you got your hands on the Lorac Palette, I’ve been struggling to find somewhere that ships it to my country.

  • Congrats on the nomination!! Amazing!

    I am so happy for you Anna on your nomination!! I did vote for you and can’t wait to hear the results. Either way, I think your blog is grand!! Good Luck Dear!!!! <3

  • Congratulations on the nomination! I’ve just voted for you – you really do deserve to win. I don’t think I’ve ever commented on your blog before which is ridiculous because this is far and away my favourite blog and has been for over a year! So while I’m at it a massive thank you for all your hard work on producing fun, clever and useful content. I never really thought about the work involved until I started my own (hobby) blog but you take excellent pictures and your videos are beautifully edited. I have a subscription to almost every major beauty/fashion magazine out there which of course I pay for yet my favourite form of beauty/fashion news (and the updates I look forward to the most) is from your blog which I follow for free so genuinely a big thank you, you are doing an amazing job and the recognition is well deserved – although my bank balance does not thank you and I’m on first name terms with most of the employees at Boots in Brighton which is worrying!

    Good luck!

    Hi Anna! Congrats on your nomination, I absolutely love your blog! I am just starting out writing a beauty blog and was wondering if you could have a look and email me some pointers on how to improve. It would mean so much to me. You are my inspiration! xxxxx

    Love your vlogs Anna, even when you don’t think they are very exciting. For some reason I love watching people potter around in their every day lives!

    Congratulations Anna. I voted for you yesterday. I love your blog. It’s the only one I have to read every day & I love your Tuesday vlogs. BTW your eyeliner on the day you wore it on your shoulder too (!) looked fantastic. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s LORAC review.

    You could make a ten minute video of you just typing away at your laptop and I’d still watch it every Tuesday! The boyf is desperate for Mark to film a weekly vlog from his perspective, I’d love to see his side too!

  • Anna, congratulations on the nomination!! I just went over to Bloglovin and voted for you and also chose you as Blogger of the Year 🙂 You are seriously such a good blogger and I know that so many others get hyped up and get so much attention for (sorry to say) basically nothing and with you it’s obvious that you work so hard and you produce SUCH great content. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!! xx
