Swotting up on DSLR’s, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green & A Nerdfighters Note
Hi guys, I’m in a great mood today, I’m so inspired to blog and make videos at the moment its unreal. I’m currently sat in Starbucks in the Trafford Centre having a blogging session and fulfilling my new years resolution to improve my channel quality by swotting up on this book that the very talented Duncan Howsley from Lab Exposure bought me and Matt for Christmas. I spent today with Duncan sorting out the design for my new website. I’m so excited for you all to see it, this current site is a bit of a mess, I patched it together from three different themes and tweaked things but I want it to be clean, streamlined and much easier to navigate. The mockups Duncan did today look so lovely, I think you guys will love it. I love collaborating with people on things when you have the same vision and taste, especially when they are far more talented and can do things you can only picture in your head. Most of you will have seen some of Duncan’s work before, he’s a talented photographer too and does a lot of music videos also. We worked together on Katie Sky’s debut music video which a lot of you have seen but I will embed below, and also a lovely acoustic video for Matt’sband (as well as many others for them) which I’ll put below too. Speaking of Katie, her music video was picked up by The Box just before Christmas, it’s so crazy to think that something I did makeup and styling for is being watched on television by so many people, very cool!
Matt picked me up a copy of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green this week too. I’m a proud Nerdfighter and have been watching the Vlogbrothers since their Brotherhood 2.0 days when I found out about them on a forum and they had a handful of subscribers. Its amazing to see all their success from VidCon, DTFBA Records and The Project for Awesome. I actually got to meet John last year when he was in the UK reading from Paper Towns and I’m a huge fan of his writing so I’m excited to read this since the reviews hint it may be his best book yet. The signature in mine was green and it came with a Nerdfighter note
So here’s to feeling inspired and motivated and having extremely talented friends!
