30 videos in 30 days challenge! Days 1, 2, & 3

Well hey there,
So I’ve managed to stay on top of things with my 30 day challenge, and in case you haven’t seen them, here are my videos for the first 3 days! I’m really having a great time doing it. It’s a fantastic challenge and I love that making videos and music is at the forefront of my mind each day. I’m honestly thinking that I will keep making daily videos after this 30 day challenge. I’m just really enjoying it. Granted, I’m not managing to do a music video each day. You know, things get in the way or don’t go according to plan. BUT I am still pushing myself, and I am playing music each day, which is something that hasn’t happened in years, YEARS I tell you. So, this is great, and I’m loving it.

Here’s my day 1 video, an original ukulele song of mine called “Itch in my Feet”. I’ll post the lyrics at the end of this page! But a bit more about the song. I wrote it quite awhile ago, when I had been living in Barcelona, Spain, for about 5 years, and I was finally considering moving on. I wrote this about those people that you’re sad to leave behind.

You can listen to and buy the mastered album version of this track below.


 


 

My day 2 video is a vlogging video. I didn’t intend to do it, as you’ll hear in the video, but I’m glad I did it, as it was a challenge in itself.


 

Then day 3 is an Italian song that I’ve been singing for a while, I just think it’s such a pretty song. I didn’t write it by the way, it’s by Tiromancino. I do speak Italian, although right now it’s very rusty.

I’ll do another post soon with the next 3 videos! Thanks for reading and watching!

Lyrics for “Itch in my Feet”

I’ve got an itch in my feet
I think it’s time to travel on
My heart and thoughts are mine again
and mine they shall remain
And you can borrow them
for a while
here take them for a spin
Rent is minimal
just a little bit of affection in return
sweet memories of love and fun

Well it’s my time to travel on
I’ve been still for quite some time
Where I go, I don’t know
but I’ll take some of your things
with mine
Memories of your smile and
thoughts of really happy times
Memories of your smile and
thoughts of really happy times

Let’s arrange a date to meet
I’ll wear a new dress and do my hair all nice
Bring yourself and nothing else
I’ll cherish these moments all of my life

Well let’s make food
let’s drink some wine
let’s stay up all night and sleep all morning
Let’s hug and kiss and melt
let’s bask in each other
Don’t ever forget these moments my dear
cos we have something really special here
Don’t ever forget these moments my dear
cos we have something really special here

Big overnight curls hair tutorial

So I’m definitely not a hair guru of any styling. But I did come upon one technique that I just think gives the best curls ever. It’s so easy, and I wanted to share the technique. So I made a video on it and here it is!

I think this technique is called Bantu knots but I’m not sure. It’s really the easiest thing you can do, though yes, it’s a little time consuming, but really not very much. If you have fine hair, I think you’ll especially like this technique because it really gives such volume. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it, and it holds a curl very well, so for me, this hair lasts about 3 days. Bit of dry shampoo each morning, and voila, that’s all I need to do with it. Granted, it is very big hair, so I’m not always in the mood for it. It’s hard to get over just how much hair I have when I do this style. Need to get used to it. Maybe I’ll wear it every day for a month and really get used to it 🙂
Anyway, let me know if you try it!

New youtube videos, many of them in fact

Hi!
So I recently committed to doing frequent youtube videos, mostly of ukulele original songs , but some cover songs as well, and it’s been going well. I did a few late last year, which I was really pleased about. I worked hard on them and they took a long time to do, and I really was so pleased with them.

So then I wanted to do more but as with all things music for me, I got overwhelmed! So I decided to get back into it, but to set lower expectations for myself. I really REALLY like creating videos and recording music, but sometimes I get these ideas and I so badly want them done RIGHT now that I… well, I get overwhelmed, and become completely inept!

But so I decided a few weeks ago to get back into it. Doing youtube videos really helps me because it’s a very easy outlet for my music and for me. It’s really so fun, I get such a kick out of it.

Here’s the video more or less explaining what I want to do with my youtube channel:
