C&C Has Gone on YouTube!

So I've embarked on a new adventure: I've created a YouTube Channel to coincide with my blog! For those of you don't know, I was in Europe studying abroad half of this past summer & I vlogged (video blogged) a lot of my excursions. I fell in love with it & decided I wanted to expand my vlogging to something I could do on more of a regular basis, since I won't be making another European excursion anytime soon. So here we are!

Since I'm new to this, you'll be following me along my inexperienced & bumpy path until I get all of the rookie kinks worked out. I'll be making videos mostly about beauty products and fashion related things, but I'll definitely be tying sports into some of them. And of course, whenever I'm travelling, I'll be vlogging my trips (like Vegas next week & DC in January!).

My goal with this channel is twofold. The first is obviously just to expand my platform onto YouTube so that I can reach more readers and connect with other bloggers who have the same interests as me. The other is to provide a different kind of blog-following experience. When I can, and when it's applicable, whenever I film & upload a video to my YouTube Channel (that isn't a daily vlog), I'll write a corresponding blog post. For example, when I make a video about my monthly beauty & fashion favorites, I'll still write a blog post about it too and include the video in the post. This gives you the choice to read or watch: read if you're in class, watch if you want to do something more interactive. I know that which I prefer changes on a daily basis and I want to give my readers & subscribers the choice.

That being said, I've uploaded my first YouTube video on this journey! It's my 2012 Beauty Favorites (sorry boys), and there will be a corresponding blog post in the near future for it. But for now, I wanted to share the good news with you and get it up as soon as possible for you to see. Special thank you to my amazing friends Holly, Tiffany, and Molly for pushing me all along to start my channel. I truly never would have done it if it weren't for the 3 of you nagging me all the time :). But seriously, y'all are the best & I love you!

So without further ado, my first video! [I also promise they won't all be this long, just had a lot to say!]
