Pen Showcase: Pentel Brush Pen for Calligraphy

Pen Showcase

This is a series about the pens I have! Part review, part discussion, I’ll try and highlight things I like and dislike, and then things I’ve heard from other people (probably other reviews, or the Pen Addict).

And finally I wrote some pangrams down on a new Rhodia Dot Pad I got:

Makeup Monday: Try This With Me False Lashes

Makeup Monday

Over the past couple of years, I went from “sometimes putting eyeliner and lipstick on” to learning how to take care of your skin and how to do that with makeup. I just wanted to share the love for all things beauty and skin-care related. Let me know what you think!

Trying out a new series called Try This With Me, where I try out something I’ve never done before, and you experience it with me! I think it’s gonna be like a first impressions combined with some learning while doing, which is how I learn!

Today’s Try This With Me is false lashes for Makeup Monday! Before this video, I had never had false lashes before, and you get to follow along on my first time trying them on! I also included a couple of check-ins, and an end impression at the end of a 12 hour day!

Sorry for being off camera at times! I tried to cut out being off camera as much as possible, but the camera was definitely at the wrong angle most of the time.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for a Try This With Me, and I’ll see if I’m up for it!

My Five Favourite Animals

Like I said on last Sunday’s post, I want to post a new video each week on something random, like a “get to know me” video or a challenge or something. I’ve just been bit by the YouTube bug, so I like making stupid, random videos I guess! So here’s the start of some random videos I wanted to do!

For this first video, I decided to share with you my top five favourite types of animals, but this was really just an excuse to gush over cute animal pictures! Please let me know what your favourite types of animals are, and if you like the same animals as I do!

I want to do a list on my favourite Pokémon, my favourite comic book characters, my favourite movies, etc. What do you think, please let me know if this is something I should keep doing!
