Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. I just wanted to write a little update post, as I obviously haven’t posted in such a long time, and I feel really rubbish about it. When I started my youtube channel Freddy My Love I never really expected to be able to call it a full time job. And while I am SO grateful that I can, and loving every minute of it, where I was thrown in pretty quickly, and where most of my new friends and peers have been doing this a lot longer than I have, I’ve been finding it difficult to find my feet, and to keep up! My channel is growing at an incredible and overwhelming rate, and I feel pressure to not only create videos that I think my audience will love, but also to create content that steps up to the ever growing standard that has been set. It’s tough, I won’t lie! Before 18 months ago, I had never picked up a DSLR camera. I didn’t know about lenses or lighting, had never heard of “depth of field” or white balance. Learning a new skill is exciting, but also a struggle. Plus I’m a virgo. Duh, I’m the biggest perfectionist in the world. I will literally spend over an hour adjusting the lighting until I’m happy with how it looks, and that’s before I’ve even started filming! It’s not unusual for me to completely refilm a video because I’m not happy with how it turned out. What I’m trying to say is, I’ve been consumed with my youtube channel and this blog has pretty much been left to rot. Well, slight exaggeration, but you get it.
It sucks because I really do love this blog, and the whole entire concept of blogging itself. I wanted to be a blogger ever since I was about fourteen, and discovered Tavi/ Style Rookie. I dabbled in my own blog but it was a total fail, so I flew over to Tumblr and that was kind of my thing. But what I have now is what I always dreamt of having, and please believe me when I promise I will do so much better in the future. The new design is coming, I’m so excited and I cannot wait to get stuck in and fill it with beautiful outfits and beautiful places for you to enjoy. This is a passion that I’ve neglected but if you are reading this, thank you so much because it means you have stuck by me through my idleness!
Hopefully you won’t have to wait much longer for the new blog, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a good old outfit post with you. If you are followers of my youtube channel, you may have seen my Halloween Scream Queens ‘Chanel Oberlin’ Get The Look video. This is honestly probably my favourite video I’ve ever done. If you watch Scream Queens, you’ll know the character Chanel has the most incredible, over the top, glamorous style, and I had the absolute best fun recreating it and shopping for all the outfits, as they are pretty similar to my own style, yet also out of my comfort zone! So many people, including my parents and boyfriend, said I should dress like her every day. I wish I had the confidence! But I have actually been taking some ‘Chanel” inspiration and injecting some of her style into mine, and I wanted to share thus outfit with you as it’s so pretty and wintery (minus the bare legs, but you know how weather inappropriate I am!).
