Quick video update on life!


I have been forced to 'vlog' (eww) after breaking my flaming camera tonight when I was trying to put it on the tripod. Boo! I think it worked out for the best in this instance because It's much easier to explain what I've been up to in a few minutes than to try and type it all. 

Here's my very off the cuff update! Complete with a roller coaster ride of emotions and an unexpected special guest who was assuming I'd edit him out! No editing here, pal! 

(Youtube always gives me the worst freeze frames!)

Miss you! 

xo

PS - Forgot to mention in the video, we're off to Scotland for a week on Sunday to see Alex's family. So excited!

  14. I have to say Gem, as much as obviously I'm not pleased for you that you exploded your camera (btw, hope no one from Amazon is a fan of your blog :p) - I thoroughly enjoyed this post :)

    So many things to comment on & now I can't remember any of them!

    Glad to hear your work experience is going so well - sounds amazing. You'll have to let us know if your ideas/articles do get printed so we can all check it out :)

    I'm slightly ashamed to admit though, that your 'cupboard from hell' is basically what my ENTIRE ROOM looks like :/

    Have an amazing time in Scotland. I'm very jealous. Wish I was going anywhere for a week to be honest! Really rather in need of a change of scenery. Take lots of pics, so I can live vicariously through your blog please!

  17. Aww too cute! And I promise not to say anything about that thing you talked about. Not that I could, but why risk it, right?

    Also: Hi Alex!

    Anyway, you two have fun in Scotland! Bises !

  19. This was so funny- I'm kind of glad your camera broke!
    I know what you mean about the Ebay stuff- I've just sorted out my room and now I have shitloads of clothes to sell. But thankfully free listing this weekend!
    I'm so jealous of your work experience, it sounds fantastic. Got to get my own arse into a journalistic workplace soon!

  20. Haha Gem I seriously think you must be the most down to earth, lovely blogger there is! So glad the work experience has gone well! x

  22. Bahaha, the end was brilliant!

    The work experience sounds amazing. I've got some in early September with quite a big arts company, and I'm part worried that they'll ask me to just make tea, and part worried they'll ask me to actually have an input!

    Hope you get a new camera too!

  26. Hi Gem,

    Just to warn you - it's raining CONSTANTLY in Scotland at the mo! Not sure where you're going, but I'm in Glasgow and it's pouring! Fingers crossed it's going to clear up (man, I sound like my Granny blethering about the weather).

    I love your dress by the way, very cute.

    Xxx

  27. Lovely dress. Your work experience sounds amazing. I'm so jealous! How did you manage to secure work experience at The Times?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Your so funny - laughed at you 'whining on youtube!', so glad your work exp is going well and enjoy Scotland! xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great video and I love your accent :). Enjoy Scotland - its been pretty nice up here recently :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your work experience sounds pretty amazing. I've been to three or four different magazines and have never had such an experience like yours. Mine have literally all been, get your head down and fade into the background types which is a real shame. On my latest work experience the girl that was mentoring me literally said there was nothing for me to do, which sucks as this is the industry I want to break into!

    I love your dress by the way, wish I had snapped that up!

  34. ha this made me laugh :)
    Lovely to hear about your work experience. I wish more interns, etc shared their experiences. Gives a bit more confidence to people like me who are terrified of it! x

  43. Your work experience sounds so interesting Gem! I actually found the vlogs took longer than normal blog posts because uploading takes soooo frikking long. I miss doing them though. I will try to do a little vlog when we move house maybe!

    ReplyDelete
  44. OMG I love your vlogs! They're so down to earth and normal! I hate vlogs that are really set up and the fact that we genuinely saw you jump as your bell went, was even better!

    DO MORE VLOGS GEM!!
