March’s Vlog + A Challenge.

Well, hey there. I’ve lost my voice completely (I’m sick) and so I am pretending that I am either Adele or the Queen Bey, or someone equally fabulous, on vocal rest. Having an imagination is imperative in times like this, times where it is the first day that feels like spring and I feel…like this.

Okay, here is the thing. I know some of you are afraid or nervous to vlog. I have been there. Please refer to my first vlog in which my nerves actually come across as sarcasm (typical, Nina). I think this is my fourth time posting a vlog and I cannot tell you that I am comfortable. But I was challenged (ahem, see first vlog again) and I realized all of my hesitations were not good enough (also, my mother told me to get over myself. Please see vlogging with friends). I was afraid of what people would say or think or how I would come across. As my mom said really sweetly: get over yourself, Nina. (For the record, I am still working on getting over myself and somehow I am a cohost).

So I am challenging you. Yes, you. I am challenging you to join us next month which all about how you are a beautiful person. Yes, you.

In the meantime, here is my vlog (the lip synching is short, no worries):

I forgot to mention Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Jimmy Stewart, It’s a Wonderful Life, Life is Beautiful, and…Ben Affleck. Oh, Ben. How could I forget you? (Probably because I did not read the questions beforehand. So smart.) (And then, after this was posted, I forgot to mention Clooney. George! I’m sorry!)

So you have been officially challenged to join us in April which is all about Beauty and You. Challenged. Bam. Here are April’s questions.

1. What makes you feel beautiful?
2. Which qualities give someone inner beauty?
3. Who is someone in your life who embodies these things?
4. What is your favorite (non physical) quality you have?
5. What physical quality do you like most about yourself?
6. What beauty products (if any) do you use in your daily routine?
7. Do you wear make up? How often?
8. What is an outfit you feel beautiful wearing?
9. Have you ever tried a fashion or beauty trend that you came to regret?
10. How do you balance internal and external beauty personally?

    Your lip syncing is my favorite part of the golden vlog!! Ha, I love airplane, not a favorite but definitely a funny movie! Scandal?!! but it’s just so good!! I’ve never seen Lost but always wanted to!! I feel like it was on before the days of DVR so I always missed it. I love your vlog, I’m always laughing, I’m glad you’re a host!!

    1. Nina Post author

      Aw, thanks. Most people do love airplane. I am the weird one. I did finally catch up on Scandal! You are so nice and I am glad you can laugh with me and not at me. Thanks, Kenji!

    I’m so with you on books! I also love classics as well. I’ve been re-watching Parenthood as well so I can get caught up and watch the finale. πŸ™ I loved the lip syncing. Was that Lea Michele?

    1. Nina Post author

      It was Lea singing a song from one of my favorite musicals: A Chorus Line (it was also made into a movie). Let me know what you think about the finale!

  5. Anne

    The earrings!!! Yes!!! Love them. So I have to ask…was the dog book worth missing the Bulls? An thank you for starting with the lip syncing. Best intros ever.

    1. Nina Post author

      It was completely unplanned. That’s why I tripped over my words haha. No, in the long run, nope. But I mean, I would choose reading over sports in general. And thank you about my lip synching. Not my best but oh well.

  6. chelsea @ the new wifestyle

    hahah i absolutely LOVE that you incorporate lip syncing into your videos-so creative and so on point with it, nina! parenthood is SO good.

    fact: when i watched ‘friday night lights’ i had just gotten laid off and then focused all my efforts on becoming a school counselor, just like mrs. taylor! ha!

    1. Nina Post author

      I have to make time. It’s bad. I would rather have less sleep and read than sleep. Thanks, Kelli!

    Everyone on the linkup loves Pride and Prejudice! I just can’t get into Jane Austen… and believe me, I’ve tried! I’ve been meaning to watch Parenthood for quite awhile now too… I keep hearing so many good things about it!

    1. Nina Post author

      Haha, I knew everyone was going to say Elizabeth Bennet that’s why I was like well everyone is going to say her. What Jane Austen did you try? I would watch the BBC version with Colin Firth that really is the book on screen (it’s a mini series) if you can’t get into the books (it is on netflix). Parenthood is amazing! Thanks for stopping by!! Come back soon!
