Why You Should Start A YouTube Channel Today

We kept putting off starting a YouTube channel for months and months and we really wished we hadn’t. We always look back and laugh at our first vlog we were so formal sitting at Rach’s breakfast bar introducing ourselves, pulling funny facial expressions and using our hands WAY too much. We wouldn’t change it for the world though and we would never make this video private even if we cringe at it every time.


December is the perfect month to start YouTube especially if you want to vlog there is always so much going on around this time and everyone loves watching vlogmas. It will definitely make your first couple of video’s/vlogs fun and festive. We are excited to vlog during vlogmas, unfortunately we won’t be able to do it every day but we will be vlogging as often as we can.


In October we sat and filmed our first sit down video, up until that point we were only doing vlogs. We decided it was about time we sat down and did a chatty video. We were scared it would be super awkward and we wouldn’t know what to say but it wasn’t and we had so much fun. The first two video we filmed was an ‘autumn haul’ and the second one was ‘helpful blogging tips’ that we decided to post on our blogs 2nd birthday.


We don’t have many subscribers at all but you know what that really doesn’t bother us we love filming and we love the fact we can now go back and watch our holidays or fun days out that we have had. Memories that would have otherwise been forgotten have now been captured and are online for us to watch back forever.


The more you vlog or film the more natural it becomes, you become yourself on camera instead of trying to be yourself. We found this quite challenging to begin with but the more we have vlogged the better we have become (we hope).

GirlBOSS- Niomi Smart


We were browsing Eventbrite like we regularly do looking for interesting events to attend. If you don’t know what Eventbrite is it is a website where you can be the host of an event or purchase tickets for events (its great and we are so addicted it even featured in our September favourites). You use the search engine to type in the sort of events you want to attend and some are even free. When we came across the GirlBoss event with Niomi Smart we knew we had to attend.

We have been following Niomi across all her social media platforms for quite some time but if you don’t know who Niomi is she is a lifestyle Blogger and YouTuber. The tickets were just over £5 and the event was being held at the Hoxton in Shoreditch, a venue we had not been to before.

The event was due to start at 6:30PM and when we arrived (10 minutes late) everyone was already seated. We walked into the kitchen area to grab a drink and Niomi advised us on what drink we should choose. They had wine on offer but we opted for a delicious Sibberi water which was naturally flavoured with maple. We thought it was great that Niomi was there welcoming the guests as they arrived and it turns out she is even lovelier in real life.

Niomi is an incredibly genuine and inspiring girl and her attitude to life is truly infectious. We left the event feeling more motivated than ever. It’s all down to hard work, being consistent and being as authentic as possible in everything we post.

We will definitely be keeping an eye out for more GirlBoss events in the future and we think you should as well.
