The Wonderful World of Vlogging.

Hi guys! 

I hope everyone is well and getting ready for Christmas now! On the subject of Christmas I have a super exciting blog post coming up soon! I have decided to write a blog post in relation to my favourite time of the year - Christmas, of course! 

I haven't written a post in a while because Harley and I have just bought our very own first house! So, so exciting, but also so stressful! Now that we are settled in and have our first set of Christmas decorations up, I decided it would be a really good idea to write a Christmas House Haul post! We have purchased SO many decorations for our new house, never mind 'walking' in a winter wonderland, we are LIVING in a winter wonderland! Yesssss we are! So I am hoping to upload that post later this week, but I have just re-vamped the whole of my blog. Now I am getting more into the swing of writing on my blog I thought I would change things up a bit and give my blog a bit more of a style. Ironically, it looks a lot like my living room...

Anyway, that post can be expected soon but I recently caught up with my good friend Meg. I have been friends with Meg for years but haven't seen her in about 4 years. A lot of you guys will probably know her as Meg Says! I have spoken about her previously in a blog post and how proud I was that she had started YouTube and would you believe it she has now reached over 30,000 subscribers on YouTube- woah.

So whilst Meg was round we were chatting about how its Vlogmas at the moment, and how much we were struggling to keep up with everyone's vlogs. Everyone that I have spoken to this year seems to be saying the same thing - SO many people are vlogging this year, but why? What is it about vlogging that we all seem to love. Some people get it, and some just don't.

"So what is this vlog thing then?" my Mum asks all-the-time. When I respond with "well, its when people film themselves all day and show you what they are doing" she kind of just looks at me with the look on her face that has "why would you want to watch someone unpacking their shopping" all over it. BUT I DO! In fact, I LOVE watching people unpacking their shopping. For some reason there is something so soothing about watching someone live their everyday lives. It is because it gives us an insight into someone else's daily lives, or is it because we as a generation are nosey? Who knows? Maybe both! But whatever the reason, there is something so enjoyable about them.

For me personally I find vlogs so relaxing. I love running a hot bath, or maybe putting on my pj's and getting cosy in bed and catching up on vlogs. My favourite full time vloggers are definitely the Saccone-Jolys! If you guys have never heard of them then seriously,get on this! I won't ramble too much as I have a post coming up about them soon, but they vlog every single day of their lives and the weird yet kinda' wonderful thing about vlogs are that you begin to feel like you know these people! 

I mentioned in my previous post that I suffer with anxiety, and for me, catching up on vlogs is like my own personal home remedy. I also love how personal vlogs become. In a main channel sit down video they are all pretty planned out, whereas with a vlog there is no video-path, you never really know what they're going to come out with and its a 20 minutes snippet of someones day which is completley unplanned (well, verbally unplanned anyway!) I remember watching one of Zoe's videos and she just completely had an emotional breakdown, and as awful as it was, it was an insight into her a person and gave us all that moment of "I'm not the only who has breakdowns am I?". 

Celebrities these days have become so untouchable that you are lucky to see a photo without it being photo-shopped, and seeing your favourite youtuber vlogging with a bare no make-up face is really quite re-assuring and comforting. 

What do you guys think about vlogs? Do you have any personal favourite vloggers that you watch religiously? Let me know because I am ALWAYS on the look out for new vloggers.

Thanks for reading and sorry for the delay in posts! Look forward to getting back to uploading and hopefully to upload more than 1 post a week (yep... hopefully!)

I hope you all have a wonderful week, thanks again for reading.

Love Chelsea x
