A day in my life: My first Vlog

May 18, 2016 in About Me / Yummy Eats

Hi guys and happy Wednesday! Hope your week has been treating you well so far.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been thinking about making YouTube videos for a while- whether they are vlogs, what I eat in a day, a mixture of both, or just rants about recovery/my thoughts on those kind of topics, it has been on my mind for a bit and has been something I have wanted to do for a while. So I decided to take the plunge and just do it!

Yesterday consisted of a workout, hanging with my friend by my pool, and work at GNC! The weather was so nice and my pool finally opened (even though it’s not warm enough to swim in it yet lol). I enjoyed some yummy eats like oats with Justin’s honey peanut butter which has been my faveeee, and shared some laughs with my best friend! Overall it was a great day.

Now tell me:

Do you guys like watching videos over reading posts/ do you find it is a good way to switch it up? 

Are you a fan of Justin’s nut butter? 

Thanks for watching! Hope your Wednesday’s are great. 🙂

    Ahhhh I love this Lyss!! Sometimes I go to the gym with my Dad too and we don’t talk to each other either lol 😉 This makes me laugh though, you’re literally the cutest person ever. It’s also nice to hear your voice!! Keep ’em coming girly! xoxo

    I like videos because it’s fun to see how the person who I imagine from the writing translates into real life! But I also like regular posts too. I cracked up with the part of you and your dad in the car, dads are the funniest. I’ve never had Justin’s nut butter but I’ve heard great things about it. I’m on a PB and Co. kick and I haven’t been disappointed yet!

      I think a balance of both works really well- thank you for your input Caroline 🙂 Haha my dad is so funny, all dad’s are hilarious in my opinion. I need to get some PB and Co again! It is a lot cheaper than Justins lol.

    I loved this Lyss! I especially like the clip of you and your dad, haha! You are quite skilled with the tech stuff.

      Thank you Kate! Definitely some poor video quality here and there, but that’s stuff that can be worked on. Thanks for your kind words!

    It was fun to be able to put a voice to your face! Your personality is so bubbly and I think that shines through with your writing.
    It actually makes me want to make a vlog of WIAW instead of a post, perhaps sometime this summer… If I even find out how to do that haha.
    Great video! 🙂

      Aw Stephanie that means so much to me, thank you!! It was really fun to film a video and show what I ate too. You should definitely try it sometime, I would love to watch yours!
