How To Create MIND-BOGGLING Vlogs In Less Than 5 Minutes

We all agree that vlogging definitely is the content of the moment. It’s one of the most trending and in style modes of content creation today. However many get bewildered about how and what to blog even at this moment. To help you get a clearer perspective, here are my techniques on what I use and how to create phenomenal vlogs in less than 5 minutes

What is video blogging

A blog is a medium or space that enables you to express your thoughts , opinions and views on a particular topic. When videos are used to perform the same , it is called a video blog or a vlog. Video blogs enables the audience to get more clarity on topics you choose to share about. It provides better visual aid than blogs and promotes more audience interactions as well. Individuals who undertake video blogging as a full time career are called “vloggers” .

How to begin a video blog

Video blogging or vlogs is all about asthetics and visual attraction. Along with content a number of other factors contribute to the making of a successful vlog. Your vlog requires to be visually appealing and enticing for your target audience in order for them to watch it. To achieve this, blog set up and equipment is of utmost importance. This not only makes content more engaging but also improves content quality which is an essential requirement for a prosperous vlog

Here are a list of items that I personally use to create some mind boggling video blogs

1) camera

The first and most important equipment to begin vlogging is a good quality camera. A fine quality camera instantly upscales your content giving it a more of a professional touch. I personally use the SONY ALPHA a600 Mirror less camera

I love this camera as it not only comes with great capture quality but also contains multiple professional features that help to make your content look more polished. Some of its impressive features include

– hyper camera stability

– great colour capture

– low light clarity

– mega zoom

– in built editing

And much more. This is definitely an incredible purchase especially for all the blooming vloggers out there.

2) microphone-

One of the major hinderances while creating good quality vlogs is background disturbance and unwanted noise. Especially if you choose to shoot in a crowded location or are a travel vlogger , superfluous background sound seems inevitable. To deal with this I use the SHURE SM78B CARDIOID DYNAMIC MICROPHONE.

This has great quality and captures your voice even from a considerable distance. It works perfectly indoors as well as outdoors . It’s lightweight body makes it travel friendly and suitable for travel vloggers as too

3) Backdrop

As video blogging is all about visual appeal a good backdrop plays a vital role in achieving the look. A good backdrop clears up background disturbance by portraying a clean stage. While purchasing a backdrop try to steer away from excessive designs and bright colours as they create a hinderance and divert attention from the main subject. Rather opt for monochrome or pastel shades as they serve the purpose and also appear pleasant on screen .The one I myself use is the BOOSTY 8 x12 FT White LEKERA Backdrop Photo Light Studio Photography Background

Not only is it budget friendly but also comes with a variety of height adjustments that prove to be super user friendly. It also includes 3 different backdrops that you can choose from , so you don’t have to purchase them seperately. This is one of my best purchases till date.

Lighting

Lighting plays a significant role in improving and upscaling vlog quality. Good lighting makes content more captivating and easily digestible for viewers too. This is one of the equipments that you really want to invest in . I personally love the pro led ring light by neusouq

This lighting contains

– adjustable height options

– wireless battery charging

– 3 different light setting options

– rotatable phone stand

This proves to be really convenient and is supremely helpful in creating good quality video blogs

My quick video blogging process:

Now that u know what equipments I use to create vlogs ,let’s see the steps to create them. So here is the basic outline of how I create video blogging content using these 3 simple steps

Step 1- prepare script:

I like to begin with writing down ideas and concepts I want to create vlogs on. I then create a script and a draft on how I want it to look

Step 2- Filming:

Once I am done with what I want to blog , I move on to filming my videos for my blog. I set up the equipments mentioned above and begin shooting my content.

Step 3- editing:

Once I am done filming and shooting my content , I then shift to editing the footage. This step is very vital in producing a good quality output. I personally use final cut Pro as my editing software to edit and fix my vlogs. Once I am happy with what I have achieved , simply go further and upload it.

So here it is, how I create my vlogs from start to finish. Hope you liked it and if you did do subscribe, like and share for more helpful content ❣️.

Fashion expectations vs reality- epic online shopping fails that will get your day going

Hola guys,wassup. If you guys are new here, welcome to my blog. My name is Chris and I’m a grooming and lifestyle blogger.

Shopping is something we all love to do. Not only does it make us wanna show off but also helps to set some major mood swings right.online shopping is a million dollar industry. Everyday millions of people shop online, but only a few get what they want. Especially with online shopping, user experience has turned even better, or has it? Here are some epic online shopping fails that will definitely make you go hahahhah

1) I wanna look tall
All the customer wanted was a basic, simple pair of blue denims. What can go wrong in that, you may think. Well! This customer would beg to differ.


The customer was horrified with a pair of blue denims made for a tall circus clown . Not only that it also has knee bags that don’t  make it seem too attractive! Does it? Well let’s look at the brighter side, at least you don’t need to wear shoes below. This was definitely a big online shopping nightmare

2) loaf – ers
Loafers are so in trend right now! They come in a load of designs and can be paired with almost any attire . However this is where the phrase comes in ” don’t take it too seriously”


The customer ordered a pair of bright yellow loafers and got this ! Two multi grain loaves in the shape of loafers. I guess the customer  at least  had a good sandwich. Don’t think this customer is going to shop online again

3) sky at my feet
While we are at shoes here is another one. Just look at how amazing these shoes look. A classic pair for sports and athleisure . The best part the bright blue colour that makes it all pop. I’m sure the girl buying it wanted to begin her fitness journey that’s been long awaited. Guess she needs to wait a little longer.


Here’s what came in the mail instead. A random shoe piece stuck together with a random rubber sole. One can’t walk in them let alone run!. I don’t think even Victoria secret models can handle such footware. This was definitely a what I expected vs what I got moment.

5) wild wedding
We’ve all got friends, cousins or mates who order  outfits online for their big day. We also know more who have received the complete opposite of what they expected for their big day! Here is another epic online fail that should definitely not be repeated , ever!


Here is an innocent girl who trusted online Shopping for her big wedding night. Having everything perfectly ready , this is what she received one day before her wedding. A pair of white jumpsuit badly stitched with leftover pieces of net . Not only is it a bad fit but also has no zip at the back! You can surely see the heat in the bride’s eyes! This definitely adds to our list of funny online shopping fails

6)mini mini mini skirt
It’s always hard to judge the exact size  we need while online shopping. However the most wrong one can go is, either 1 size above or below! Right! Well not soo much


This college girl wanted to get some male attention on her first day of college. She ordered what looked like a bright red flattering skirt  that would move with the wind gluing eyeballs. However not all plans work and nor did this . What she got was a ruffled cloth the size of her arm , that barely fit her thigh. Guess her mom knew what she was upto and switched sizes while no one was watching! This adds one more customer  to our list who deeply regrets shopping online!

7) absolute misfit
Not only girls don’t get what the expect while online shopping guys are doing pretty well at that too. We all know that outfit that looks immaculate on a mannequin but equally horrendous when we put it on. This customer below is going through the same feeling while trying this on. Here is another hilarious online fail.


What he ordered was this classic winter jacket that adds a dapper look to anything you pair it with. Umm I guess you need to rethink that one. This jacket is soo wrong in size it makes him look like an inflated balloon ready  burst. While the colour he ordered was an amazing tan, the one he received was in mustard yellow.
He definitely ain’t wearing that one!

8) uninstagraMable outfits
Instagram has become one of the most used apps of all times.we are all guilty of checking for likes and follows every second the phone buzzes. Instagram has definitely also influenced our style over time. Here is an attempt to slaying Instagram that failed miserably!


This clearly depicts social.media vs reality. what we see on social media is not always the truth and here’s why. This girl ordered a pretty, chic nude outfit to get clicked for instagram. Hoping to trend on social media and become the next fashionista she also agreed to pay a high price for this one. However all her dreams were shattered when she saw this in her mail! A completely used piece of cloth, with random cuts and a piece of lace hap hazzaredly  pinned to it. She decided to delete all social media and has turned into a monk.

9) it’s snowing
We all shop seasonal clothes and are specially keen for seasonal offers too. Here’s what happened when one girl thought she bannged a deal for a cute designer sweater


This girl  ordered a cute hand knitted winter sweater for her winter holidays. Thinking of snowfights and hot apple ciders , the discount was just another reason for her to have it at all costs. However I don’t think this did keep her warm all winter! Infact now she hates winter holidays and has shifted to a desert country.

10) it’s time for prom-
We all know that one person who shops for prom online. That is the same person , who gets something completely opposite of what they expect. Look at this hilarious prom dress fail that will get you ROFL


This poor girl was so excited for prom she had her stuff ready a month in advance. What was pending though was her outfit that was supposed to come one day before prom. This is what she got in her mail. This is definately one of the most epic fashion fails of all times

11) stud style
We all shop online for a particular occasion or an event. Athleisure is one , a huge number of people order online for their gym and daily sports activities. This is a guy who did the same, and here’s what followed


This guy ordered a grey tank top which came in as a party dress! And what is least of his concern is that he ordered it in grey and recieved it in shiny silver!

12) style it up
We often see many celebrities flaunt new fashion styles on social media on a daily basis. Very often we do think of buying something similar to look trendy and hip. A simple shrug overcoat works the same. It’s basic style and effortless fitting adds charm to anything you pair it with. However looks like this one came in too effortless


This guy ordered a trending Cape coat which came in like this. He simply got a cloath with two holes cut in them! And what’s worse he ordered them in grey .

13) it’s all graphics
We see  fun graphic  t-shirts all over online stores.they come with great  captions , memes or simply colourful logos that  simply make your day! But little did this customer know he was being graphically fooled


This customer was not at all pleased with the graphics on his t-shirt cause it simply wasn’t visible. He now uses this t-shirt as a mop cloth to clean furniture

14) pretty princess
Halloween is one of the most awaited times of the entire year. This is the day! When you can simply be whoever you want, whatever you want without being dragged for it. This customer too in her halloween enthusiasm choose to become a princess for the occasion. But little did she know ,  becoming a princess comes with its own struggles.


What she ordered was a beautiful Bella gown from beauty and the beast but instead got a ruffled curtain that did not even reach her knees! It also was nothing like the picture showed . She ended up becoming a  matchstick seller for Halloween!

15) in a twisted world
The world nowdays is pretty twisted ! People day things they don’t mean and do things without thinking. But little did this customer know that the world could be that upside down!


This customer ordered a simple bathing suit for her beach pic next week. However what she received was a swimsuit with its backside stiched with its front! It is not just pure stupid but also confusing when the customer first saw it! She went on to twitter saying “don’t shop from( xyz) as the don’t know which is the front and which is the back. Well, all we can do is hope she had a good day at the beach in those!


Below are some more crazy  online shopping fails that will make you laugh your balls out!

Too racist to wear

Sultry ambition

Unexpected

A size too small

You don’t mean what you say

This woman’s PJ’s weren’t quite as she imagined

Her dress came as a tshirt

She ordered some crystals but recieved a spray painted rock

Ordered a princess lela costume for Halloween but ended up looking like a pale white ghost

This is definately not a size 32

The couple learned it the hard way

She ordered it for herself , but definitely wasn’t the fit, tried it on her cat but don’t cover her nipples too! In summary don’t purchase it even for your cat!

What I ordered vs what I got

Too tight for your sight

Let me know if you have experienced any hilarious online shopping nightmares in the comments below!

Skin talk- Beginners guide to k beauty

Hola guys,wassup. If you guys are new here, welcome to my blog. My name is Chris and I’m a grooming and lifestyle blogger.

We all very well know that Korea is the beauty capital of the world. People from all over the world come here to shop skincare and experience advanced cosmetic procedures. When tested it was learnt that Korean beauty products are 10 decades further from the rest of the world in terms of formulations and effectiveness. Be it any skin concerns all your answers lie in that one bottle of k beauty product. K beauty products are also multi functional and performs  varied tasks that would usually take multiple products. This not only saves you hassle of layering product after product and time consumption but also reduces expenses. So now you know why you need Korean products in your skincare let’s move on to guiding you through it

Koreans are very particular , when it comes to skin-care. It is an important part of Korean culture since ages to maintain and take proper care of their skin. There are some steps that are mandatory and common in all k beauty Regime’s while some  are added according to one’s skin concerns


Step 1


Cleansing as we all know is the major step to have healthy skin . Cleanliness is truly next to godliness. So if you want your skin looking godly you need to clean it well. K beauty has introduced the double cleansing method , to ensure that your skin is free of dirt, oil and sebum.
A) oil cleanse
B) foam cleanse


Oil cleansing-This works on the principle of like dissolves like. Oil cleansing gets rid of oil, product and sebum off your face . It dissolves of it opening up pores for the next step.


Foam cleansing- since the pores are now open, foam cleansing helps get rid of dirt, pollution and impurities that cause skin problems


This is the rice foaming cleanser from the face shop. I personally really like this product . It clenses and brightens skin without stripping it off its moisture


Exfoliation-


The next step of cleansing is exfoliation. Koreans exfoliate their skin on a daily basis. However daily exfoliation can be a skincare Hazzard if done wrong.  Exfoliators in western markets are mostly physical , which damage and irritate your skin . Koreans usually use a mild exfoliator or a chemical exfoliator to get rid of everyday dead skin. Mild exfoliators are usually cellulose based which act up on your skin when massaged into it. It feels like cooked oatmeal or wet bread. It is very gentle on skin and basically polishes your skin diminishing pores. While chemical cleansing is a bit strong and usually done only once a week to bulldoze dead skin.

This is the smart peeling gel from the face shop. Don’t work it does not peal off your skin. It contains cellulose that gently polishes skin getting rid of dead skin . It also helps in brightening up your skin


Face mask-



Koreans go all down when it comes to face masks. Did you know Korea manufactures more than 75% of total face mask manufacturing in the  entire world! Koreans use face masks on a daily basis. However just like exfoliating using a face mask everyday can affect your skin’s moisture barrier. Hence Koreans resort to sheet masks instead of wash off masks. Simply put on a mask for about 30 mins and remove. Pat the remaining serum into your skin by patting. This greatly helps to give your skin that korean brightening and glow!

This is a collagen mask that helps with making your skin plum and giving it a youthful glow


Toner-



Toner plays a vital role in Korean skincare. Korean toners are way advanced and effective than other toners. Their partial size is 12- 14 times smaller than other toners. This helps it to seep deeper into the skin while others simply work on the surface. Korean toners are also known to be more moisturizing and do not strip skin of natural oils that are essential for healthy skin . While western toners contain a load of alcohol and astringents that strip skin off its moisture contents. Korean toners also are multi functional and do much more than just maintaining pH balance of your skin. They heal , repair , Moisturize and Brighten up skin .

This is the time revolution toner from missah. It’s a great toner and a great dupe for luxury brands. It’s a must try!


Essence-

This is the miracle product that give Koreans the glow we all want. Essence is a concentrated solution that primarily makes your skin glowup, however it consists  various ingredients that help with your skin issues. This is done right after toning your face. This step is essential to get that Korean glow and hydration.

This is a great essence . It’s a clear dupe for the famous SK 2 essence. It has a velvety finish and leaves the skin glowing and young


Serum-

Serum is the step where Koreans treat and repair skin issues that act up. Now that your skin has got the right hydration and nourishment to glow and repair it is time to treat existing skin problems. Choice of serums is usually on the skin problem your facing. If you are dealing with acne and acne scarring, a salcylic acid serum is for you while ,if you have dull skin a vitamin c serum is your must have.

This is one of the most raved beauty serums of all times. It even featured in the vogue magazine of beauty must haves. It is a unique vitamin c formulation that does not oxidize unlike other vitamin c serums. It’s great for daily use and helps diminish acne scaring a, pigmentation and dull skin over a period of time


Eye cream-

Did you know your eye are is 15 times more thinner than the rest of your face! Hence taking good care of your under eyes is very important . Koreans use daily eye creams with spf. This not only nourishes and repairs under eye bags, fine lines and wrinkles but also protects from future damage

With UV-targeting sunscreens making up nearly one fifth of the formulation, this Supergoop product delivers the some of the strongest broad-spectrum protection of any eye cream on the market. Zinc oxide (a physical blocker) and octinoxate (a chemical one) work together to filter UVA and UVB rays, preventing sunburn in the short term and things like age spots and collagen degradation over time. Skin-conditioning glycerin and sunflower seed oil offset any drying effects, and mica adds a bit of a glow.


Moisturizer- This step helps put all things in place. A good moisturizer helps to get all the skincare working while keeping it in place. It ensures that no skincare falls off your face and layering your skincare products remains effective. It also prevents moisture loss from skin and acts as a shield protecting your moisture barrier
ceramide is composed of sphingosine and a fatty acid.Ceramides are found in high concentrations within the cell membrane of eukaryotic cells, since they are component lipids that make up sphingomyelin, one of the major lipids in the lipid bilayer.

This is the rice ceramide moisturizer from the face shop. It greatly helps in moisture retention and repairing moisture barrier.


Face mist- Koreans usually top it all of with some sprays of face mist-. This usually contains pure flower extract that helps to add moisture and plumness to skin.


This is a great tea mist by Innis free. It is a detoxifying mist that consists green  tea extracts


Lip balm- it’s just as important to take care of your lips, as important to take care of your skin. Koreans use over night lip masks at night to nourish and plum the skin . In the morning they go for a lip balm with spf to protect it from harmful UV rays


This is a great coca butter formulation for every day use. It is even tiles with spf 15 to prevent skin darkening


Morning-
While all these steps are done at night to repair and nourish skin, their morning routine is more about protecting skin from the external environment . This starts with  topping the above mentioned routine with spf


sunscreen- sunscreen is the holy grail in Korean skincare. In Korea children are not allowed to step out before applying spf. Korean sunscreens as stated are way advanced in formulations and effectiveness. Korean sunscreens do not contain an spf below 40. That’s how important spf is in Korea. Koreans apply loads of sunscreen everyday to protect their skin against harmful UV rays . The sun is considered as skin enemy no 1. It causes skin problems like sun burn , uneven skintone, aging, fine lines and wrinkles, acne etc. Hence it is very important to wear sunscreen everyday of  the year. Koreans also reapply sunscreen every 3 hours to maintain effectiveness. This is done either in the form of powders or cushions.
This is the sun milk light weight daily spf sun screen. It is great for every day use and leaves an amazing glow after use!

This is the missha sun milk sunscreen with spf 50 pa ++++ . It’s a great light weight sunscreen that has zero white cast ang gets absorbed in minutes. It’s a chemical sunscreen and looks great under makeup too


So here it is you guys your basic guide to k beauty and k skincare. I hope you loved it and if you did make sure to like , share and subscribe to my blog. I post new blogs everyday .

Perform 2 sets of 10 each

3)flutter kicks

A Flutter Kick is an exercise that specifically targets the lower abdominal wall. You perform this move by lying on your back and using your core to “flutter” your legs up and down. You’ll often see this type of move performed in Pilates, barre and strength training classes

Perform 2 sets of 14 each

4) alternate toe touch

Lie on your back with your arms to the side, and legs raised at a 45-degree angle with the floor. At the same time, raise your right leg up and lift your torso. Reach your left hand toward your right leg, as if you’re trying to touch your toe. Return to start and repeat on the other side. 

Perform 2 sets of 16 each

5) Russian twists

To perform the Russian twist, first, one should sit on the floor with knees bent as in a “sit-up” position. The feet should be kept together and slightly above the ground or put under a stable surface. The torso should be kept straight with the back kept off the ground at a 45 degree angle. Arms should be held together away from the body in a straight fashion and hands kept locked together like a ball or one can hold a weight to increase the difficulty. Next, the arms should be swung from one side to another in a twisting motion, with each swing to a side counting as one repetition. The slower one moves the arms from side to side, the harder the exercise becomes, working the abdomen that much better. The Russian twist is a type of exercise that is used to work the abdominal muscles by performing a twisting motion on the abdomen. 

Perform 2 sets of 16 each

And unless you’re adding significant resistance to your ab routine or working them so hard that they are noticeably sore the next day, you’re safe to work them every day. But, just because you can work yourabs every day doesn’t mean it’s the most effectiveway to attain a strong core, flat abs or lean physique.

Masking Monday- at home facepack to get rid of hyperpigmentation

Hola guys,wassup. If you guys are new here, welcome to my blog. My name is Chris and I’m a grooming and lifestyle blogger.

Hyperpigmentation appears as darkened patches or spots on the skin that make skin look uneven. The spots are known as age spots or sun spots andhyperpigmentation is also at the heart of skin conditions such as melasma and post-inflammatoryhyperpigmentation.It can take three to 24 months for PIH to fully fade,3 although in some cases it may take longer. The length of time it takes for PIH to fade depends on how dark the spot is compared to the surrounding skin.

I’ve personally suffered from hyperpigmentation and sun burn for long!. However finally I’ve been able to get rid of it completely. Here are some home made masks to help you achieve a flawless complexion at home.

Cure

Prep

1) raw milk treatment-

Start with a clean fresh face. Dip a cotton ball into a cup of raw milk and wipe your face with it. I advise raw cold milk , as milk helps to calm skin irritation and cold milk works better in doing so. Wait for about 5 minutes and wash off

2)pack

Mix 1tbsp of multani mitti ,with 1/2 tbsp turmeric, tbsp tomato juice,1tbsp curd and 1tbsp potato juice. Mix it all together and apply it for about 45 mins. Avoid under eye area.

Multani mitti is a firming and detoxifying agent and will help to get rid of the top layer of dead skin on your face. Turmeric works as an anti bacterial agent reducing spreading and intensification of hyperpigmentation, tomato juice contain natural astringent properties make it ideal for clearing blemishes. As far as the dark spots on theskin are concerned, the high lycopene content present in tomatoes helps in lightening these stubborn spots. Potato juice helps lighten pigmentation while curd helps to polish and calm skin

Steam

Steam your face for about 8-9 mins and massage the face pack off with a cotton ball. Rinse with warm water

Post treatment

Apply a hydrating moisturizer

Eg- cerave, the ordinary, Cetaphil
Follow with a good sun block to avoid further darkening-

Eg- supergoop, regaliz sunblock etc

Apply twice a week for best results

There are a number of other cosmetic treatments as well in case of alergic hyperpigmentation

  • Retinoids.
  • Chemical peel.
  • Laser peel.
  • IPL therapy.
  • Microdermabrasion.
  • Dermabrasion.

2) lemon facemask

Simply take 1tbsp lemon and tbsp honey mix it well . Apply for 15 mins

Take a slice of lemon and dip in finely grounded sugar and massage it over your face

now wash off the mask and sugar with warm water. Follow up with a hydrating moisturizer

3) orange peel pack

Take 1 tbsp of orange peel powder, mix it with 1 tbsp honey ,1 tbsp milk, 1tbsp sandle wood powder. Apply for 30 mins and wash of with warm water

Process- simply use your middle and pointer fingers to sculpt your face. massage your temples ,nose , cheekbones gently. Beware of applying moisturizer before face massaging.

Process- simply intake a cup of green tea, Lavender tea , Tulsi tea before brushing your teeth in the morning. Do not eat anything for 1 hr after drinking

4)Slapping

Most people use skincare the wrong way!. Usually individuals dot products all over their face and then spread it out with their fingers. However this decreases effectiveness of products

Process- simply take pea size product in the centre of your palm. Massage it between your palms and apply it on your face in a slapping motion. Massaging products between your palms heats up products activating ingredients to work better while slapping motion helps to improve blood circulation in your face

5)Moisturize in the bathroom

Many of us make the common mistake of moisturizing after coming out if the bathroom. This is the wrong way , as your pores tend to open up while having bath and shut within 5 seconds after. By the time you apply moisturizer your pores are closed , and the products end up just building on the surface of the skin rather than seeping deep into your pores

Process- simply slap on moisturizer before leaving the bathroom. This will ensure moisture retention and allow better absorption of skincare you layer afterwards.

So here it is you guys, 5 simple activities that will considerably help your skin and also fasten skin repair. When done on a regular basis you will notice great difference in skin texture and skin disorders.
