boho girl vlog {1}

(click to play)

Until I get a proper video camera, the one on my new cell phone will have to do. ;) Forgive the blurry pixel-y style.

A lot of my friends have been encouraging me to vlog (video blogging) but I always shied away because I am super nervous in front of cameras. Ironic being that I am a photographer. I am so much more comfy behind the lens. So...this is me stepping out of my comfort zone in a big way!

The more I play, the more at ease I will feel. The video camera on my phone only records small increments at a time...but less is more, right?

Relax into yourselves this weekend.

Well, I thought that this was a very sweet vlog (and lookie here -- I've learned a new word!), and appreciate the affirmation. I'm just going to let that roll around in my brain this afternoon: "Relax into yourself...."

Enjoy your weekend!

What a great post. I have to say, I love your voice. So sweet and gentle with a hint of wisdom and understanding. It adds a completely new dimension to the boho blog.

This weekend I'll actually be playing mini golf, something I haven't done in years. It should be a pretty hysterical way to relax.

Enjoy your weekend.

it's lovely to put a voice to the 'voice' that shines through your words and photos. it did make me laugh - it's silly but i'm always a little caught by surprise when i'm reminded how many of the blogs i read 'speak' with american accents! hope you have a relaxing weekend.

You are the most beautiful, gentle spirit. Your words are always touching, but hearing your voice made me understand you as a person even more. My heart is aching today and you helped to heal me, just a little, just when I needed it. Thank you so much.

What a special treat! You are so lovely, don't you know that? (inside and out) Seeing photos of you is wonderful; this is wondrous! My stoopid laptop volume control is stuck on mute so I can't hear your voice until I get to work. I wish I could paint, just to paint your so cute apple-esque cheekbones! This is a great idea -- more! encore!

Your voice sounds so sweet and lilting! I am so glad that you added this dimension to your blog. This weekend I have heeded your words to relax and in the quiet there was soooo much creativity! Can't wait to see if relaxation had the same effect on anyone else...

i almost heard a little "canadianesque" accent? maybe boho boy's has rubbed off onto you.
so sweet indeed is your voice and you are a brave girly for doing a vlog.
i think it added an extra touch of personal which is soo nice.

thanks so much everyone!

i was totally shy to do this but each of you have provided me with those wings to try and try again. so perhaps there will be another one soon. ; )

and i couldn't believe how much i sounded Canadian! my hubs has totally rubbed off on me but i didn't notice how much until i heard myself talk.

i was thinking about your words today in my yoga class this morning. during a breathing exercise at the end of the class my teacher suggested that we relax into it. hmmm.

How nice to hear your sweet voice :) How cool it would be to meet you and the other ladies who visit your site and who leave posts that leave me feeling good about the world...who give off a good vibe...hmmm, a Boho retreat?...just me dreaming...

Relax into myself is what I'm trying to do more and more to nourish my soul...

Thanks Boho Girl :)

Oooh, I love this! What a treat to hear your voice after many, many months of reading your words on this page. Your voice is lighter and sweeter and higher than I imagined it in my head. I love it! I can't wait to watch more of your video blogs. I hope they become a regular feature here.

I thought of you and your tribe many times over this past week as me and my band of lovely ladies convened in Bellingham, WA, for a sweet retreat together after months of growing our friendships through blogging. It was a great way to relax into ourselves, especially as we gave each other permission to be even more of who our true selves really are.
