VLOG: What's Up, March? (Bookmail + Mashups + Waffles)


WHAT’S UP Y’ALL. March is here!! And I made a video of my face because I’m too tired to write a blog post. (Very logic.) Let’s chat in the comments about the next cover song, all the books I got in the mail, and of course WAFFLES. What’s going on in y’all’s lives this month??





love,
abbiee

  1. Hi Abbiee!
    Cool video! I can't wait till your next cover song!....Now I want waffles...
    btw-what camera do you use for your videos and where did you get the light? I might start vlogging in future when I'm done with school and I was wondering what camera I should get :D

    1. EEEP THANK YOU SO MUCH!! *sends you virtual waffles* For all my videos I use a Canon T3i. For this vlog I used a wide angle lens (the EFS 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM.) I definitely recommend getting a DSLR camera if you're serious about vlogging and making videos. But there are also some phone cameras nowadays that are comparable in quality to a DSLR. ALSO YES YOU SHOULD TOTALLY VLOG BECAUSE IT'S SO MUCH FUN. <333 Thank you for watching!!

  3. Heartless absolutely destroyed me and has one of the prettiest covers, like, ever??? The dust jacket and the actual book are too beautiful for words. And just warning you, The Giver will answer some questions, but it's also supposed to be open-ended. *cough*unless you read the rest of the books*cough*
    And I actually got to meet one of my favorite authors at a book festival on Saturday!! I still get emotional every time I think about it. *wipes away tear*

    1. EEEEP I'M SO EXCITED TO READ HEARTLESS. <3 The cover is too beautiful tbh. And that makes sense about The Giver...I probably will read the whole series in that case. HaHA. I'M NOT SO GOOD WITH OPEN ENDINGS. :') OMG THAT'S SO EXCITING YOU GOT TO MEET ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS!! Good for you! *hugs* Thank you for watching this vlog!

  4. Book mail is the BEST. I actually just finished reading "Cinder" for the first time and I really need to go to the library and get the next book. :P Your vlogs are so fun! :)

  5. *squeals* WE'RE GOING TO GET AN ABBIE MASHUP SONG, OHMYGOODNESS. I am majorly excited about this. MAJORLY excited. I kinda want March to zoom on by so that we can get to the end and see your song xD.

    And THE BOOKS. I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't read Heartless yet - everyone else has and I'M LEFT IN THE DUST trying to finish everything else on my TBR xD. But hopefully I'll get to it this month because it looks SO GOOD (it's a Meyer book, how can it not be amazing?).

    I'm looking forward to the last day of March! :D

    1. ASDFHJFDLSJFK SAVANNAH YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH YOUR COMMENTS MAKE MY DAY. <3333 *tackle hugs you* I can't WAIT to release this mashup!! EEEEEEEEEP SO STOKED RN. Yes omg!! I've been trying to get my eyeballs on Heartless for a while now. *nervous laughter* We shall have to weep together over it. hehe. :') *GIVES YOU MANY WAFFLES* THANK YOU DEAR!!

  6. oh my word you are so freaking cute! book mail is the best thing ever, and those books... maaann Heartless is so gorgeous and not only that but it is amazing inside too. such a stunning rollercoaster of a book. it is so different from TLC that it's not even comparable. it will rip your heart out and make you crave fancy pastries. speaking of Marissa Meyer have you heard about Renegades?!?!! The Giver is so good, it's much more... small-scale than the movie. I liked the book better. AND THE BOOK THIEF IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER I HOPE YOU LOVE IT!! also that WWII book looks interesting.
    keep pushing on with that editing! YAY COVER MASHUP! can't wait. <3
    I have not had waffles in forever either which is a tragedy. I must have some soon.

  7. I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS SO MUCH

    ok like they are perf.

    BUT EEEEP COVER SONGS!! I can't wait for that. And pfffft over-committing who does that? (may or may not be saying that because I commit myself too much too often) THE STRUGGLE IS REAL :D And yesss <3 BOOK MAIL IS LIT. Also, okay, this is really off-topic, BUT YOUR DECOR IS ADORABLE. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the white bookshelf thingy (I have no idea what it's technically called *facepalm*)? I WAS LOOKING ALL OVER FOR ONE OF THEM. But yes EVERYTHING WAS LOVELY <3 *nods*

  8. UM, IS THAT YOUTH LAGOON IN THE BACKGROUND?!?? I love Youth Lagoon! You are literally the coolest. Love your office/room space, too. Looks so beautiful and clean and full of light. I seriously can't believe that it's March, yo. I feel like I blinked and February was just gone...literally gone. And dude, you created your own mashup? Super pumped! IT'S A MEDLEY, YO. The Book Thief and The Giver are the jam. So many emotions!

  10. You're pretty funny, in the best way - the whole 'how many days in March' made me laugh. I always ask my mom those serious questions, and she does the exact same thing.

  11. Literally, every time I see one of your vlogs, I am just like "How are her eyes so pretty?? And can I find a way to make my eyes that pretty?" SHARE YOUR SECRET ABBIEE.

    The Giver is definitely one of my favorites, but I don't think it's the best of Lois Lowry's books. I adore Gathering Blue. It was one of my childhood books, and it is just so pretty!! It feels (to me) as though it's easier to get swept up in. I'm excited to hear what you think of The Giver!!

    HEARTLESS ACTUALLY HAS SO MANY CONFLICTING REVIEWS. I haven't read it yet, but I've heard it's Marissa Meyers best book, I've heard it's "meh", and I've heard it's the worst book in all of existence, so I'm curious to see what you think!

  12. Agggggh I love this video so much!!! I literally started up a little sticky note on my computer of things to say "you rock" about #soorganized
    1. books in background -- oh my gosh is that the Jane Austen set because I HAVE THOSE TOO!!!
    2. warm weather -- yessss I can't wait. I'm from Wisconsin and there's so. much. snow.
    3. music -- your background music starts and stops are PROFESSIONAL, fren!
    4. room SO PRETTY -- It looks so sunny and bright in there!
    5. stickers on books -- no. Unacceptable. I can never get them off quite right, and sometimes it rips off part of the dust jacket and I quietly die inside.

    1. ASDFGHJKL THANK YOU SO MUCH ANNA OMG THIS COMMENT MADE ME SO HAPPY :'''') *hugs u* YES!! I got that Jane Austen box set for Christmas and it was definitely one of my favorite gifts. IT'S SO PRETTY I JUST WANT TO PET ITTTT. <333 Oh my goodness it must be so cold in Wisconsin!! *stress sweating emojis* when will winter be over?? EEEP I'M SO HAPPY YOU LIKE THE MUSIC AND THE ROOM. :') I'm rather a fan of it myself. UGH STICKERS ON BOOKS ARE THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE. *cries quietly* Thank you so much for watching, dude!!

  13. ABBIEE!!!! First off, YOU'RE SO PRETTY. Like, your eyes are on the level of Disney Princess beautiful largeness in all of the best ways.

    Also, I read Heartless over the holidays. I... ah... didn't really like it. But I guess I should've know what I was getting into. Man, I miss Cinder, though.

    I haven't read The Book Thief yet either, and I kinda feel as if I'm betraying the book world.

    COVERS!!!! You have me very anxious for this. So excited!

    Also, this video is SUPERB!!! I'm going to start a vlogging habit of my own, so I'm almost taking notes on what you did with yours because it was lovely.

OH MY GOSH THANK YOU HANNAH :'''') *is crying happily rn* THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME WOW. <3 Mmm I can't wait to read Heartless because I've heard a lot of conflicting reviews on it....I'M SO AFRAID I'M GOING TO JUST COMPARE IT TO THE AWESOMENESS OF THE LUNAR CHRONICLES. :') we shall see. EEEEEEEEP SO EXCITED FOR THE COVERS OMG. And this month's mashup is going to be *incoherent screaming and flailing* GOOD. I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE YOUR VLOGS YOU HAVE NO IDEA <3333 I'm so glad you liked this one!! *hugs*

  17. ABBIEEEEEE!!!

    I must say allllllll the things, okay? Spo brace yourself for a rather long comment...

    You are so good at vlogging!!! Not that I'm surprised. You are the awesome and tend to be good at everything, but... Well, you have mentioned being an introvert so I guess I thought something like this would be kind of difficult for you?

    I WAS SO WRONG!!!! You nailed it. Seriously.

    You seemed sooooo comfortable and chill and awwww, I just love you "in person" so much!!!!

    I ASPIRE TO BE YOU, ABBIEE.

    Not even kidding. After watching this (and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries - my newest OBSESSION!!!), I want to be a famous vlogger like you guys!

    Or, at least, you know, DO a vlog??? I've never done one...

    Because, alas, I AM VERY POOR and don't have as nice camera, a nice room, or good lighting, buuuuut... maybe someday???? (Soon!)

    Also. Random side note - maybe you could do a post about HOW you vlog??? I mean, I just noticed that it was edited really nicely and that the lighting was good and you weren't all washed out or anything... And if I'm ever going to do one of these, I'm gonna need aaaaaaaalll the tips. :)

    I also liked the music in the background and how you used silence for emphasis. That was cute. :)

    The only book in your stack that I've read is The Giver aaaaand I kind of hated it??? But to each his own - here's to hoping you love it! :)

    1. KAYLA MARIE THANK YOU SO MUCH YOUR COMMENT JUST BRIGHTENED MY DAY <333 omg I know right?? I WAS LITERALLY THINKING ABOUT THAT WHILE I WATCHED IT... it's so weird. I'm such an introvert and I totally freeze up in social situations and nervously stutter and just sound really awkward bro, but in front of a camera I'm like??? SO NATURAL AND SASSY AND WHY CAN'T I BE LIKE THAT IN SOCIAL SITUATIONS?? ugh. idk. but EEEP THANK YOU SO MUCH <3 this is the kind of crazy I am for my family, so...y'all are getting the truest version of me (not that awkward stuttering limpet *nervous laughter*) SDFGHJKL WAHT YOU ARE SO KIND. I've never watched the Lizzie Bennet Diaries even though it's been recommended to me like 37137876 times and I FEEL REALLY UNCULTURED LOL but eeeep yes!! YOU SHOULD TOTALLY DO A VLOG. Q&A is always fun! And I would ask you allll the questions ever. ;) oooh that's a really good idea for a post, Kayla Marie! I like it. I'll totally do that in the future! :D aw I'm so glad you like how I edited it!! (with the music and all hehe -- that was fun.) EEEP THANK YOU FOR WATCHING AND FOR THIS LOVELY COMMENT. <333

    2. I'm the same way - very introverted in "real life" but completely comfortable in front of a crowd or on stage or in front of a camera. Doesn't make much sense, does it? :)

      I really enjoyed The Lizzie Bennet diaries - you should check them out sometimes. However I totally hear you - people recommend things to me all the time and I'm like, "I love you and you are kind and sweet and I wish to take your recommendation but I know I probably won't get around to it for at least another decade or so." Whoops!

      Aw, you are too kind! I hope to start vlogging soon!

  20. YOU'RE SO CUTE THO.

    And also omg why have you not read the Book Thief yet. Get thee onto that Abbie. (And I 1000% regret buying the paperback of Heartless. 😭 The hardcover is GORGEOUS. 😍) Also I love The Giver! And the movie! :P

    Your cover song was gorgeous. JUST SAYIN'. BUT HOW DARE YOU MAKE US WAIT SO LONG FOR THIS MUSIC COVER. I'M DYING OF CURIOSITY HERE.

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
