Vlogging, a New Job, Children’s Fashion and Once Upon a Time #littleloves
Joining in with But Why Mummy Why and #littleloves again this week. I love this linky and enjoy reading the other posts.
As always I suck at this section, although I do read a lot of blogs. been filling in paperwork for my new job, wuhoo!!! I had to do a DBS and medical forms, various things like that. I really enjoyed reading (and watching) Lucy at Dear Beautiful’s 4 months pregnancy update. What a great idea. If you haven’t read it yet then click here.
I have been watching ‘Once upon a Time’ on Netflix. I lost interest really in this last season but kind of stuck with it. I’m pleased to say that the Season 3 Finale this week has finally brought some excitement back in, and I’m now looking forward to Season 4. I like it when programmes mix it up a bit. I loved Season 1, but then it became just ‘ok’. It’s something the husband likes watching too though as anything with villains and powers is his cup of tea.
I also have been watching a lot of vlog videos and have started getting my camera out again and filming a lot more of the everyday moments with the children. I made space on my iphone by finally moving all my photos and videos onto storage, so I have been able to capture the children a lot more in the natural moments. Being inspired by the Let’s Talk Mommy interview with Lucy at Dear Beautiful, and watching many other videos by other vloggers, this is something that we will be doing a lot more here at dontcallmestepmummy.
I finally found my Prada sunglasses again, yay!! The husband wasn’t impressed that given I paid a lot for them about a year ago, they had disappeared. Oops (must keep house tidier). Luckily, Martina found them for me the other day and they have been able to make an appearance again.
I’m a huge Brooke Fraser fan, and this week her ‘Brutal Romantic’ album was finally released in the UK. One of New Zealand’s finest, I love her voice, and she writes so beautifully. This is a different sound for her, but it’s very catchy and great for the summer.
I haven’t been very crafty with the children this week, but I have been having fun editing videos of the children, as I’ve been experimenting with different software. I’ve always used Adobe Premiere Pro as a former Media student. However, after being recommended to try iMovie I had a go. It was very frustrating trying to upload things from my camera and iPhone onto my iPad, but I guess if we invest in an iMac it would be a lot easier. iMovie really does do so much for you that takes a lot more time on Premiere. Ok you don’t have as much control over the niggly bits, but I’m not making feature films, I’m documenting our memories, and I can do this a lot more if it’s not going to take 9 hours each time.
I would put my video experiment here but I’m not happy with the sound quality, as I lost interest when I needed to download music that iMovie would allow me to use *ahem* can’t escape copyright as easily with iMovie. Watch this space though as we will be having a lot more videos captured. Which will be great for family members that can’t be with us all the time (Grandparents and my sister who works abroad most of the year).

I have been spending a lot of time looking at children’s fashion this week. I wrote a post about it and have bought Judah and Eden some much needed clothes. I am excited for them to arrive. They have both grown recently and have literally grown out of their clothes. You can read my thoughts about whether it’s important to have unique clothes for your children or not if you click here.
