I'M HOME! And my failed haul video attempt...Tuesday, 1 April 2014
I'm baaack! And terribly broke. America, I love you, stop taking my money! Insert ugly cry face. But seriously, I had the BEST time away, this was my fourth trip to the United States and I see new and different things every time, and I can't get enough! I will definitely have to put together a little photo post of my trip later so I can show you guys what I got up to!
Most importantly though (lol), I obviously hit up the shops on my first day there. Pretty much the most exciting thing about America to us Australian kids is the shopping, let's be real. Makeup especially is so overwhelmingly expensive in Australia so when given the chance to shop at places like MAC and Sephora, we jump at the chance.
I bought SO much guys, it was so exciting! I couldn't wait to get home to tell you all what I bought (brag, brag, brag) and in my head, I had all these visions of some amazing, clean and pretty video in which I calmly showed you everything I bought in full HD perfection. Needless to say, this did not happen. I had completely forgot that I loaned my Canon 5D to my Dad for his holiday, and as such only had my small point and shoot camera to record on. I tried, so hard, and I recorded nearly all of my haul almost five times, each time it got cut off at some point and I'd realised I'd been talking to a dead camera for nearly five minutes. I wanted to give up so badly, but I knew if I didn't film it now, it probably would not have gotten done at all, so I did the only thing I thought I could do.
I filmed it in Photobooth.
The shame, the shaaame. I did not imagine that my very first video was going to be filmed on my laptop, and it makes the photographer in me cry. I was so exhausted at this point, I rushed through everything and got tongue tied a hundred times, and totally forgot to take a photo at the end so that is why you are looking at an uuuuglay screenshot above.
I'm not doing a very good job at selling it, but please check the video out here and let me know if you'd like to see more videos in the future! Not filmed on my laptop obviously...
Sometimes, you just have to let things go (deep breaths).
