There is a little devil inside me that wants everything to go as planned. Or, even more, to plan everything.
Of course I can hear all mums out there laughing at me, and I KNOW, you can´t plan anything when you have small children, as they will inevitably throw up/ a fit / the keys behind the cupboard when you are pressed for time. But I thought in my own little online bubble, things could be planned. Scheduled out nicely, prepared in advance, uploaded when it was meant to be uploaded.
Like Empties posts, once every three months. One in March (see here) and the next one in June. Quarterly. But wait, is it June already? No. It isn´t.
The video that was supposed to go up instead wasn´t ready. Because my camera decided to throw up/ a fit/ the keys behind the cupboard. Isn´t it funny how electronics sometimes act like little children?
Three months ago, I decided it was time for a fresh start. My empties started piling up, and the cute (and quite big) box I was storing them in was bound to overflow. As I am still trying to shop my stash a lot and finish what is already in there, I was heading straight to trash mountain.
A sight neither pretty nor inspiring.
Now fear not, I am not going to go all Marie Kondo on you. I will never ever be a minimalist, but sometimes you just have to let go.
So in January 2017 I dumped all my stuff into the trash and started again, quickly accumulating what is now my March 2017 Empties.
My first ever You Tube video (linked here if you really want to see) was a „Taking out the trash“ video. And it was almost one year ago that I set it live. So to make up for my (obviously missed) You Tube anniversary, here is my December Empties video.
Honestly, I am rubbish at remembering anniversaries. I missed my blogging one for the second time this August and I don’t think I will ever remember to do a special post or something similar like I see on all the other blogs.
Oh well, I am going to celebrate everyday that I manage to keep up with it, I guess, and just go with the flow.
As I mention at the end of the video, that was supposed to be my September Empties.
Yeah, I know.
In my defense, I do have a ton of video ideas and barely any time to film and edit them, so I guess I will leave the „monthly“ empties schedule and sneak them in as a Sunday bonus video whenever I find the time.
What better way to spend a Sunday then talking about trash, am I right?
Another month, another empties video. This time it is a little bit of everything: Makeup and skincare as well as hair and body care. Oh, and a perfume!
Not that I am going through all these products in one month, mind you, but I am making an effort to finish my stuff before using new one. And as I felt like I needed to stop rambling for ten minutes plus about my trash, I made different piles to film different videos in the time coming.
Yes, I sat there organizing my trash. And planning to use this trash in the upcoming months. This is either art or very disturbing. I will leave it to you to judge.
Time to throw away my empties once again this year. And because I don’t believe in waiting for New Years Eve to start something new, I figured that would be the perfect opportunity to film my first ever YouTube video!
So if you want to see me „ahm“ and „äh“, struggle for words and get sad about Body Butter, click play or watch it here on YouTube.
