I can safely say that I didn’t know this morning when I got up that by the end of the afternoon I would have done my first vlog. I’ve been putting it off for so long and kept thinking of it as a thing for ‘the future’…. but it just kind of happened.
And, I have to say, I salute all vloggers – it is not an easy thing. It’s the strangest thing having kept my face (bar one picture) off this blog for five years to suddenly pop up on YT. So, it’s very weird to on the one hand want people to see it and on the other hand hope that nobody looks!
One of my words of advice to new bloggers is to jump without looking, so I took my own advice on this occasion! I’m happy in front of a camera having done a little TV work and some ads but without the benefit of a professional camera crew, amazing lighting and editing (I have no clue how to edit and I’m not even going to try at this stage) it’s really quite a daunting prospect.
But, it’s done.. and its like starting all over again on Twitter or blogging.. I know I am lucky enough to have lots of followers on both channels but actually feel really comfortable with having only a few on YT so far.. it’s not really about garnering views or subscribers or whatever.. it’s more an extension of what I’m already doing (going to vlog some of my much loved collectable Chanel and Dior palettes next I think) and putting into words what is sometimes difficult to write.
So, there we have it.. if you’d like to subscribe and say hi, I’m welcoming you with open arms (and a grateful face)!! My channel (ooh, that sounds odd) is HERE. Or, click the side-bar link.

Well done on the first video. I’ll be looking out for more. It’s good to see you in the flesh!
Huzzah, Jane! I just subscribed. Looking forward to more good things from you.
Hurrah! Subbed xxx
Well done on the vlog! Very excited to see what you have in store 🙂 xx
You did a fabulous job !!! Just finished watching and am looking forward to future videos 🙂
Jane thank you so much for the refreshingly honest vlog!! I religiously read your blog every day and I really appreciate all the effort you put into your work! I hope to see more!x
I like the fact you’ve kept it real! I just wished vlogs could have a different name!
It is good to put a face to your excellent beauty blog, as a profesional makeup artist, new to the massive volume of blogs out here I am very “picky” but I like yours as a valuable tool to keep me up to date!
On the Vichy foundation, it is sold on french parapharmacie websites. x
Well done Jane so nice to see you IRL!! Kudos to you. SAx
Love it! Already subbed 🙂
Jane your vloging was great.
You said u wanted your debut to be high production
But everyday is not high production .
You looked fabulous.
If u had better light that wouldn’t be the true u.
Loved it, so funny and honest. Can’t wait for more. Subscribed.
Dermablend is fabulous, I use it as concealer and mix it with my moisturiser to give a lighter finish.
Yes! It’s hard to be a vlogger but I think that confidence has got to be the hardest part of it all. You’ve seemed to overcome it, though, so yay for you! Subscribing now.
I’ve just watched your vid and I absolutely love it.
I don’t give a monkeys if a blogger (beauty or otherwise) is older, younger, slim, curvy, orange, pink or green. As long as I know that they provide honest information and opinions about products, thoughts etc, then I’m a happy lass.
Good on you my love!
Looking forward to more vids xx
