Hey y’all! Welcome back! I am so excited to share this video with y’all! It was really hard for me to narrow down and show you guys what a “typical” day looks like for me because to be honest, every day is completely different. But I did my best to take you through an ideal day (not including school) of course– showing you guys a lot of behind the scenes footage of how I actually accomplish and gets things down over here at Southern Style.
When I put together content for my blog, I try to put my best foot forward, but with all of these posts it is REALLY my intention NOT to hold back and show you what my life is ACTUALLY like– without any kind of filter. So I didn’t do anything special to my apartment before filming this, didn’t try to look fancy and tried to bring you with me throughout as much of my day as possible.
In the Vlog you will see what my typical morning looks like, a glimpse into the daily grind of greeting content and working with Kaitlyn (my best friend and basically assistant through it all), and then a behind the scenes look of actually shooting outfits and content to later be put together into blog posts that I recently published on Southern Style.
Here is a quick run down of what you will see in the video:
~Morning Wakeup Call— Time to GET UP and start my day. Waking up really is the hardest but I am not the type of person who has to sleep with the phone on the other side of the room so I have to get up. But even still, I have to have the volume turned up loud so I can really hear it.
~Orange Juice, Breakfast and Quiet Time— Like I say in the video, it is hard for me to not immediately start my day but I force myself to have some quiet time and me time in the morning before I start in on all the craziness.
~Time to Workout— Now here is the truth with this, I try to workout every single day but that does not always happen and I have found that that is okay because you can only do so much in one day. But I love to workout and love to have it included in my day because it makes me feel so much better and like I have actually accomplished something. For the most part I workout by myself and do it right at the gym in my apartment building that is decked out with tons of cardio machines, weight machines, TRX’s, kettlebells, dumbells, squat rack, and so on and so forth.
~Getting Dressed— Whether or not I am getting completely dressed up or not depends on what I have going on that day. Usually I try to put together at least 1 cute outfit everyday because it keeps me inspired and makes me want to keep creating.
~Working with Kaitlyn— Kaitlyn is my go to person for everything and anything blog and Vlog related. In the video we showed you a glimpse of my work environment with Kaitlyn and a lot is done around my kitchen island. Most days, a lot of what I do is simply done by sitting at the computer and creating content or answering comments and emails. There is WAY more admin stuff that goes on behind the scenes that most people don’t usually know about or realize that us bloggers do. So if you are curious about how much I do, take the little part of what is in this video and multiply it because this is a lot of what makes Southern Style possible.
~Photoshoots— I don’t do photoshoots every day but I typically will do one every other day or all on one day in bulk– whether it is to blog content or to get photos for instagram. In the VLOG I showed you behind the scenes of how we get blog content for a few upcoming posts (stay tuned!).
~Shopping/ Running Errands— The video ends with me going out and running errands because usually when I am not in class, I am out doing other stuff like going to the grocery stuff, running to the mall to get a few things, or just spending a few hours on the computer looking for inspiration.
I hope y’all enjoyed this and stay tuned for more to come. I have a ton of stuff coming soon that I am really excited about. A huge thank you to my best friend, Kaitlyn, for helping me with this. As always thank you for stopping by and reading and watching.
