I’m v-logging…I’m v-v-logging…

by Holly on February 11, 2010

in reviews,VLOG

To the tune of Danity Kane’s “Show Stopper,” naturally.

As you are soon going to find out, my day of eats looked a lil’ something like yesterday, the day before that and well…the day before that.  The only non-repeat in my day was this Jess-inspired snack bowl of heaven…


1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 tbsp. carob chips
1 tbsp. shredded coconut

After (heated in the microwave for 1 minute)

Despite how it may look, it was amazing.

Alright, since my eats were BOR-INGGGG, I thought it was only time for some V-LOVING-LOGGING!


  • I am Casper the Ghost, call-me-Nicole-Kidman-because-I-have-no-skin-pigment pale.
  • I literally had NO IDEA what I was going to vlog about when I turned the camera on.
  • You may get slight motion sickness watching this video.

So, without further ado, here we go…

In the spirit of A.D.D. and randomness, here are some jams I am currently loving:

  • “Pumpkin Soup” by Kate Nash
  • “Bad Romance” by Lady GaGa
  • “Pure Pleasure Seeker” by Moloko
  • “Don’t Stop” by Brazilian Girls
  • “Horchata” by Vampire Weekend

That reminds me, thank the sweet heavens tomorrow is Friday.  Was anyone else’s week as crazy as mine?  Weekend plans are TBD for me, but…

What are you doing this weekend? Spill the deets.


Matt February 11, 2010 at 9:05 pm

I am running and working this weekend!

Evan Thomas February 11, 2010 at 9:08 pm

I love how you say “v-log” instead of just vlog.
And applesauce in the microwave… disturbs me for some reason
I also like the random accent breaking into–putting S. Brown to shame there ;-)

Danielle February 11, 2010 at 9:12 pm

A: I’m going to Arizonaaaa

Okay, watched your v-log (too cute) and fell deeply and madly in love with you. Can we hang out? Can we be best friends? Will you be my valentine?! xo

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is February 11, 2010 at 9:13 pm

Your made applesauce like yogurt! I have to say your vlogs are my favorite. They are the only ones I ever watch the whole entire way thru. They are priceless and I laugh hysterically. Move here and be my real life friend please. I’d also like to raid your closet. Too bad I’m short like a tree trunk.

katie February 11, 2010 at 9:14 pm

Ashley February 11, 2010 at 9:16 pm

I’m throwing caution to the wind this weekend and honoring the great world of sports with a weekend of *alcohol inspired olympics (hope not to participate tooo much ha).

And I’m going to be moving and grooving to some David Guetta on the slopes of Sun Valley =)

Maya February 12, 2010 at 8:48 am

That was glorious! Loved the stunna shades. I never mentioned this but I loved the squeeze bag peanut butter drizzle method. Love the still of the video before it’s played! Hit us up with song selections more often because I love it all.

Kacy February 12, 2010 at 9:15 am

Hahaha, everything on that video made me smile. You are one of a kind and I looove it.

Loved the dress. Loved the stunnas. Loved the fur coat.

This weekend I’m not doing too much to my knowledge. Lots of sleeping in, maybe some workouts, going to see Nine at my local library on Sunday. Just chillaxin’ :)

Have fun with Mama & Daddy ‘Tarian!

Dorothy February 12, 2010 at 8:16 pm

I’m sorry, but I loved the v-log! It even caught my boyfriend’s attention, and he was cracking up with me! Keep ’em coming!

This weekend will be boring, some studying, some running & yoga (my new favorite way to spend my Saturday mornings), singing in church, then heading to the BEST rib place in my hometown (Quad Cities Illinois), Jims Rib Haven, with my folks and boyfriend for the V-Day cee-lee-bree-ating!! Have a good one!

Katie February 13, 2010 at 4:37 am

I want that coat!! It looks so snuggly! Also, that dress with red peep toes…I can’t even imagine how cute you looked. I am in love with black/white things. Zebras, black/white cookies, clothing.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Jenny February 13, 2010 at 10:06 am
