New Channel, Old Me...

Hi there lovely people,

I just wanted to let you all know about my NEW YouTube channel. As some of you might already know, I have a beauty and fashion channel called 'summerfey' (hence the name for this blog). For a while now, I have been feeling less and less motivated to make videos for a few different reasons (not being able to come up with content, nothing seems original to me anymore, super time consuming and not feeling like I am really giving it my all, etc...) I love YouTube, and I still LOVE making videos, but I feel like I need a change of scenery for awhile to let my brain breathe and to get my creative juices flowing again. With all of this said, I have started to upload videos onto my "vlog, or personal" channel entitled 'TheWryWombat' (I'll be doing a post on the name choice soon). If you are a subscriber from my other channel, I am unable to tell you if I will actually return to 'summerfey' at some point, or if I will just continue my YouTube journey with this new channel.

Now what kinds of things do we have to expect from 'TheWryWombat'? Well kind reader, you should be expecting, well.. me. So far I have been uploading somewhat of a hodge-podge of different types of videos on there. Some different video series that you should keep an eye out for on this channel would include:
-music videos that are accompanied with explanation videos/behind the scenes footage
-cooking/food tutorials
-vlogs (week-in-the-life's)
-just a little more about me :)

~*If there is something specific that you would like to see from me, please feel free to comment on this blog post, on one of my videos, on my channel page, leave a video response, or send a personal message my way. I would love to hear from you all and to get some feedback.*~
I would really appreciate it if you could subscribe if you have a YouTube account. I am just getting started again, but I have been really enjoying myself and making these types of videos. It is a great way to get to know me a little better, and I have to say, I have a great wealth of knowledge at my finger tips ;).

To all that are curious, I am keeping my old videos up on my first channel, and I am keeping this blog up as well. The name will stay the same (partly because I don't want to have to go through the process of changing it and the layout to match, but also because I like it), and I will still be posting here as much as possible (some may still be fashion/beauty posts, but also some random ones as well).

Thanks for sticking with my guys, and I hope that you have a fantastic day!
stay strong and keep chugging along, -Madeleine

Hello, hello, hello...
As I am sure that you all already know, spring is *almost* upon us, and there are some AMAZING fashion trends that seem to be wiggling there way out of the wood work this season. Here is the (un)official list of the trends that I am pretty excited for:

1) high/low hemlines on clothing. -My mother really hates this look, but I think that it injects an extra bohemian-flower-girl-wild-child kind of vibe if you get my drift.

2) Neon/bright colours on clothing and accessories. If any of you are avid YouTube beauty guru watchers, then I am sure that you have spotted Ingrid's (Missglamerazzi) neon green purse that I have been drooling over. If you are not daring and bold enough to go for a bright shirt or pair of hot-poppin' shorts, then I would suggest sticking with an on-trend arm of stacked neon bracelets (covering two fantastic trends), or a pair of awesome kicks!

3) Colour blocking- Read above, I don't really feel like repeating myself :D
-bright, daring lips- This trend will look fantabulous on anyone; no matter what your body type, skin colour, gender, or age is. You got this, chick-ah!

4) Straight across bangs- They're baaaaaaaack......

5) Colours: yellow, green and blue- All are super gorgeous, and totally suitable for anyone.

Please let me know which fashion trends you will be taking advantage of this spring! As always, thank you all so much for reading xox

stay strong and keep chugging along, -Madeleine
