EXCITING NEWS, My First Vlog & #Passion4Fashion Linkup

I don’t know about you but i love watching vlogs, i love getting a feel for the person behind the words through hearing their voice and watching their mannerisms, and its fun and easier than reading (ha, lazy girl over here).

So finally i have taken the plunge an filmed my first vlog to announce my exciting news!!

So if you’ve ever wondered what my silly voice sounds like (i apologize now.. you know when you hear your voice and you think? Really is that me? Oh god help me… yep totally that) or if you would like to watch a grown woman look incredibly uncomfortable and ramble on a bit then i’d love for you to have a little watch.

I’d also love to hear from you, do you have any burning questions that you’d just love to ask me? What’s my shoe size? Do i want more babies? Or am i really that ridiculous (easy answer to that would be yes, yes i am)? Then please ask away in the comments below. I’d love to film another vlog this week and answer any of your questions no matter what it is.

Or if you have any vlog suggestions then do leave them in the comments. I hope to make this a conversation as much as possible so lets get chatting my lovelies!!

Side note: This is INCREDIBLY rough, like literally very very basic first attempt blog. Shall we just say i wanted it to be as raw and real as possibly? Yes.. that sounds good doesn’t it.

So this was literally the first time id filmed and i look a bit of a weirdo but bear with me, i really do hope to improve.

And also if you would like to subscribe to my ridiculous ramblings, well that would be swell.

    You did great! My question is your clothes size ☺ You looked so petite in the video.
    You looked very nice.

    Bravo to you for your first Vlog! I think you were quite poised. I want to start integrating some video, but it is intimidating to take the plunge. I would love for you to link your fabulousness to the My Refined Style Fashion Over 40 Linkup!

    Congrats on your news, that's so amazing! Also, your voice is lovely, and you did great! You'll have this vlogging gig down in no time, you're a natural.

    Congrats, Rachel! I loved your first Vlog! Speaking as someone who comes from a TV News background, I'd give you an A+! I, too, have been planning on adding a regular Vlog series to my website but there never seems to be enough time in the day. You've inspired me and have certainly gained a new follower. Cheers and congrats again! xox-M

    Congrats on your first Vlog and being able to work full time on your blog and jewelry line! It's always wonderful to be able to do things we love. I love listening to your voice and can't wait to watch more!

    This is the first time I visit your blog and like this Vlog very much! Congratulations on this first Vlog and on your new full time job. I'm looking forward to seeing your posts. Have a great weekend!

    So great to hear your sweet voice! Thanks for inviting all of us to the link up!

  14. October 2, 2015 / 6:02 pm

    Oh-em-gee! That vlog was too cute. Love your on camera voice! Can't wait to see more. Thanks for sharing your awesome style with us and hosting the link up as well 🙂

  15. October 2, 2015 / 6:50 pm

    How exciting that you get to devote more time to Yosa and your blog! Congrats! You sound and look great in this vlog.

  16. October 2, 2015 / 8:20 pm

    Your voice is lovely and so are you – good job and good luck!

  17. October 3, 2015 / 9:12 am

    You have the cutest accent! Love this. Congratulations on going full time with the blog & Yosa. I know exactly how you feel when you say you feel like you've been blogging with one hand behind your back. I don't think people realise all the time that goes into it. I'm a (heavily pregnant!) SAHM and find it such a struggle to keep up with Nest & Dressed as much as I would like. God knows how you've managed with your mummy duties, the blog & Yosa whilst working as well! Bet you'll miss the holidays though! 😉 All the best, it's going to be amazing! x

    Congratulations on this exciting new adventure! The vlog was perfectly adorable and I don't think you appeared uncomfortable at all. Remember that you are your own worst critic, so don't be too hard on yourself! You have many adoring followers, so just go with it! Congrats again and thanks for hosting the link up and for keeping it real!

    This is a great vlog, you'd never know it was your first! I love the idea of doing one some day, but I'm too scared at the moment! Congrats on the job news – good luck!

    Great Vlog, I have subscribed. I'd love to see you do some styling demonstrations, or make up tips.

  21. October 4, 2015 / 5:36 pm

    Well done the vlog- you came across very well! I knew you'd have a cute slight Welsh accent!!x

  22. October 4, 2015 / 9:37 pm

    Congratulations on making this a full-time gig. Really happy for you.

  23. October 9, 2015 / 9:26 am

    Excited for this! Love the idea of connecting this way! Should do it!

  24. October 13, 2015 / 2:43 am

    Rachel, this is so tremendously exciting!! I can't believe it!! It must feel so exhilarating! Also, you are quite poised at vlogging, so I say more of them. And of course, your accent is brilliant. You have a very elegant speaking voice.

    So, a few questions for your next vlog: how did you come up with Rachel the Hat, the name in particular? Your style has definitely evolved–can you speak to that. What have you done to become so much more stylish? And finally, your skin is gorgeous! Can you give us any tips?

    Again, BRAVO!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb
