My New Youtube Channel

Members of the blogosphere, hello and welcome back! Before you even think it, I'm just going to come out and own the fact that I am a legitimately horrible person. I actually can't believe that my last post was in mid February and that it is now mid August. What is my incredibly elaborate, mind-blowing excuse to compensate for my overwhelming laziness? Absolutely nothing. But I am back, and am going to try and post like a regular human.

During the past 5 months where I haven't been blogging because I'm a terrible person, I've jumped on board the Youtube train and attempted to give that a burl.

 How exactly has that panned out for me so far? Well I mean I have 182 subscribers at the moment, so like it could be worse. If you've read the title of this post, you probably have some idea of where this is going. Yes, this is a totally shameless plug of my new social media platform (so please be a bae and subscribe, thank you so much). My channel's called annabeloftheball, and on it, I basically just film myself talking about an array of TV shows, movies and anything else nerdy and irrelevant. So that you can have an idea of what it's like, I'm pretty much dedicating this post to the different kinds of random videos I post on my channel, so that hopefully you'll be lured and be nice enough to subscribe to me (and yes, I'm going to be using the word 'subscribe' as many times as humanely possible throughout this post).

Rants about TV shows and Movies

Everybody loves to have a good rant, and if you're anything like me, then it's generally about fictional events and characters. I literally complain about everything from '13 Reasons Why' . . .


to the similarities between 'Riverdale' and 'Twin Peaks'.

Most recently, I've started reviewing films from a feminist perspective, which shouldn't surprise those of you who've glanced at my post about the struggles of being an intersectional feminist.


Make-Up Tutorials and Beauty Product Reviews

Anyone familiar with the land of Youtube would not be a stranger to the concept of a beauty guru. Before you get the wrong idea, I am 100% not one of them (no matter how hard I may have tried to be). I've basically just got videos of me being a failure of a human (which seems to be a theme throughout this entire post), where I (terribly) attempt to copy a Zoella make up tutorial . . .

and (terribly) review a bunch of 'Bath and Body Works' products.


'Story time'-s

I've only got one story on my Youtube channel so far, but you can bet your life that more are coming (because I am an incredibly disgruntled, inherently dramatic person). The one I've got is all about the time I was charged $175 by a school piano teacher for one recital. Enjoy.


My soap opera series, 'IKEA Heights - The Next Generation'

I started doing this before I even treated Youtube as a real thing, but basically my friend and I have created a soap opera series set in IKEA, in which two people who have lived inside IKEA their whole lives have no idea why none of their appliances work and why there are constantly people roaming around.

Everything else

There are some things that just can't be categorised. Like the time I graduated from high school and decided to replicate a bunch of iconic teen movie moments before I left.

Or the other time I decided to string together a bunch of random snapchats that I've taken and make them into one whole video.

And that's pretty much all I have for you! If you've been lured by literally any of the videos you've seen or read about (or even if you haven't), please subscribe and I will be eternally grateful! Does the fact that I have a Youtube channel now mean that I am going to stop posting on here? ABSOLUTELY 100% NOT. But if I do ever get lazy and go MIA for a while on one of these two platforms, at least you'll always know where else you can find me. Til' next time . . .

Annabel xx
