[Video] Whitney Wears: 1940s Makeup Tutorial – How to get Peggy Carter’s look!

Finally! I ran into some setbacks (this was a new type of video for me, so lighting and setting it up was totally different), but here it is! As promised, here’s the full list of makeup and tools that I used in the video. L’oreal BB cream (as foundation), applied with bb Brush from H&M. NYX waterproof concealer Kat von D liquid eyeliner in black, fullsize (Mine was from a Sephora sampler.) Ofra eyebrow pencil in “universal” NYX eyebrow shaper. NYX bronze smokey eye look kit (which I got through ipsy, but their natural and adorable palettes are good for…

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.01 & 1.02

It’s been far too long, but I’m back with another vlog – and it’s about Marvel’s Agent Carter – the 7 part television event (that’s a fancy name for mini-series) focusing on Peggy Carter. Last night’s two hour premiere was made up of two episodes, and the above video are my mostly coherent thoughts. I promise that next week I’ll have it more together- the Whitney Watches videos aren’t recaps, they’re meant more to talk about characterization, possible arcs and all the fun references. But I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness. If you missed last night’s episodes and didn’t DVR…

[Vlog] Whitney Watches SPN 9.20 “Bloodlines”

That’s right- last night a new episode of Supernatural aired, and I am bringing you a short vlog about “Bloodlines” – the spin-off pilot for Supernatural: Bloodlines. For those who don’t click through, I didn’t go into how this episode fits into Season 9, because it doesn’t really. The story begins with one of the leads from Bloodlines, and the Winchesters show up and mostly play backup to the characters. And at the end, Dean gets a message from Cas which takes them out of Chicago and back into the main timeline. The main character, a human, is going to…

[Vlog] Whitney Watches SPN: 9.19 “Alex Annie Alexis Ann”

I thought I’d continue my Whitney Watches series, by tackling Supernatural next! Only I thought there were enough recap videos and websites, that maybe I could take a closer look at the series itself. Spoilers abound in the video, but please – watch it! What were your thoughts on the episode- what grade would you have given it? I want to know!

[Vlog] Whitney Watches Teen Wolf – 3.24 “The Divine Move”

It’s been awhile since I’ve recorded a Vlog, and it seemed like a good time to discuss one of my favorite TV shows, Teen Wolf! This week saw the end of Season 3B! This video is spoiler filled, but I’d love to hear what you think. Any other TV shows you want me to do video discussions for? (I plan on writing recaps for Supernatural.)

I didn’t think it would be this hard.

Since I was released from the hospital (wow, that makes me sound like a wild animal, doesn’t it?), I’ve been cooking for myself regularly. Which is fun. I love cooking, and it’s the easiest way for me to manage my restrictions and make sure I’m eating healthily. Is that a word? It is now. So I thought I’d start filming me making some of the dishes that I enjoy. Quick, flavorful stuff like ramen or curries- things that make your tastebuds happy, but won’t take up all of your time. But I’ve run into a couple problems. All my previous…

Yesterday’s Vlog and Today’s Thoughts

Oops – I forgot to post the Vlog here yesterday: So tell me, what was YOUR all time favorite costume… and how badly do you want me to get TheBoy on the Vlog? This morning, as I pulled up to the elementary school, the street ahead was filled with utility trucks. Water main. And as soon as I dropped off the kids, I knew. I knew I was going to get a phone call telling me to pick up my kids. Which I just did. They’re smart, ending the day just before lunchtime would have started… I know, not many…

Vlog 20: Whitney’s Horrible No Good Icky Day

Ever have a day where nothing seems to go right? Sadly, I recorded this around noon yesterday… and the day did get worse. The Oldest Kidlet was in a bad mood, the Little Kidlet didn’t want to let go of me, the convenience store pulled up a ticket for the wrong lotto draw (which isn’t really that bad, it was just sort of funny) and literally nobody I live with understands that Whitney + Laptop = Leave Whitney Alone. Today is off to a better start. So how do you combat the terrible days when you can’t curl up and…

[Vlog] LK Takes Over the Vlog

This week, I have a very special guest (okay, he’s the only special guest I’ve had on the vlog so far) – the Little Kidlet! I’ll be honest, we had a blast filming this one. Yes, the Little Kidlet watches videos on YouTube. Last year’s Christmas List? He and the Oldest Kidlet put them together entirely after watching kids’ toy review videos. Someday I’ll get the Oldest Kidlet to show up. Any questions or comments? Let me know?

Vlog 18: Whitney vs the Piano.

It’s that time again- after last week’s vlog, I got a few people who had no idea that I sing. So I put this video together. Yeah, my piano needs to be tuned. That will happen eventually. Have any questions? Ask me! I might put them in a future vlog. 🙂 Comments, I respond to those, too!
