my first attempt (i stress that) on a little video hello.

i will just pretend i was having a skype date with my darling readers (you look beautiful tonight by the way!) because this is a very quick attempt at a video hello.

i was just playing around and thanks to M convincing me to hit "publish" (oh my bestie) here's some sunday evening entertainment at my expense. i was going to do another one where i was better prepared, didn't have a fly-away hair, etc. etc. but then i thought, that wouldn't be a true version of me. So i didn't and i just hit record and went with it.

and don't worry! i didn't go on and on, in fact sorry it cuts off before i got to say have a beautiful monday, but you know i hope you will!


my first attempt at a vlog from micaela maxham on Vimeo.

oh and that little creature that walks around on my couch and distracted me for a second is stella bear who wanted to also say hi!

Not only do i want to thank-you for pressing play, thank-you for watching and maybe laughing. who knows if i'll ever do one of these again (and maybe have the courage to do a real actual vlog and not just my video hello) but i thought it would be at least fun for you to see me in motion and hear my voice.

curiously, do i sound like you thought i would? 

(and if you happen to stumble upon my blog for the first time tonight, please do not judge me on this!)


ps. joel, do you notice the top i am wearing? it's my favourite. your mom gave it to me once upon a time...

April said...

I'd just like to say I hope that anyone seeing your blog for the first time DOES judge you by this post because I think it definitely portrays you perfectly. I'll say I'm almost surprised at how mature and grown-up your voice is, but I'm not surprised, I just forget that I'm the one who isn't very mature or grown-up, you're perfect. I love your voice. Really, this is a perfect post of YOU, the video and the text. I did laugh, but not AT YOU in the video, I laughed at the all the comments you made about the video, just because you're funny. Rock on. :)

Kristen said...

Ohh Micaela! You are utterly gorgeous and it's so good to hear your voice :) You speak so well, a natural in front of the camera and I do hope you do another vlog on day.

Maybe one day I will do my own. x

Jihee said...

Micaela, you are gorgeous! haha. And I absolutely love when bloggers you've followed for a while do a video post! Love hearing you in "action" haha. Lovely video ;)

Gale said...

Sweetie! You are gorgeous and a natural. I love seeing my favorite bloggers vlog. I'm so happy to be a part of your blogging world. Yours is so inspiring and most often romantic and always real.

You've got such a pretty smile and voice to!

Gale said...

Oh also to answer your question at the end, you don't sound like what I thought you would. I guess I would say that I imagined it to be higher pitched? Like mine haha. But actually your voice is so perfectly you and sexy. I like the way you speak too!

Geisslein said...

this is sooo cute and such a nice idea!!! how nice to hear a voice to the pictures I know ;o)

erin elder said...

Oh this is soooooo darling. You are beautiful... and it's so nice to finally put a voice to that gorgeous face and your lovely posts!

Katie said...

Micaela! You are adorable! I'm always surprised that your voice is a lot deeper (in a good, sexy way!) than I imagine in my head!

xoxoxo

You are adorable! I love this video (and am super impressed you didn't 'um' your way through the entire thing!). Maybe I'll do one soon. Hmmm.

You sounded like what I expected, to be honest!
