The idea of vlogging once absolutely terrified me!

I am a complete introvert and even starting a blog was a big deal for me. It actually took me a very long time to share Life Unexpected with my family and friends. I’d been nominated for a national award, so it was a good excuse to finally let them know what I’d been up to for the last year.

Vlogging is a whole different kettle of fish though. The idea of putting your face up on a screen for other people to watch at their leisure, is pretty scary and cringeworthy.

As some of our readers know, we’ve recently started working with Huggies. They’ve asked us to document our potty training journey with Evie, and one of their requirements was that we create some vlogs to accompany our potty posts.

This has definitely been the push we needed. We were absolutely astounded that our first vlog for them, reached over 1000 views in it’s first few days!

Our New Vlog Channel

We have officially caught the vlogging bug, and can now introduce to you, our new official vlog channel. Check out our first trailer below!


What do you think?

From now on we will be switching our camera onto ‘video’ mode and instead of just capturing gorgeous photos of our family life, we’re going to be making videos and sharing our adventures with you in HD!

Subscribe To Our Channel

We are such newbies to vlogging and there is a lot to learn. From editing videos, to directing and shooting. But we’d love you to join us as we navigate our new vlogging journey.

Life Unexpected will still be running in blog format too. Our videos will simply be adding a bit more personality to our posts and a bit more of an insight into our life.

We’d love you to subscribe to our channel for lots of beautiful Cornish adventures, many glasses of prosecco and lots of sunshine fun!

What do you think of our vlog trailer? Have you got a vlog? We’d love to follow you too. Let us know in the comments below!
