Product Review/Olay

WOW... I decided as a creative outlet, and kind of as a dare with my 26 yr. old daughter Meagan, (mother of the famous Leila...Disney Princess extraordinaire) that I would post some videos on You Tube.

As you know, I have some time to kill each day while Scott is receiving treatments, so I sit in the Dr. office with my iPad and headphones, and watch Beauty Guru You Tubes.  I am completely obsessed.  These girls know their stuff...problem is, most of them are in their teens or twenties, so while I've learned a LOT, some of their makeup choices won't work for skin that's been around as long as mine has.  I searched the internet for women in their 40's or 50's doing these same videos, and I haven't found any.  What's the deal? Have women my age given up?  No... I think it's because women my age aren't watching You Tube so there is a lack of women my age making videos. 

As you've noticed, and may not even like, I LOVE doing short little videos on my blog.  I love posting videos on product reviews and Paris.  So that's what my You Tube channel is going to be all about... but as my blog has expanded, so might my channel... I have no idea where this is going, or even if it will go.

I need a creative outlet, so this is it.  I started it yesterday, and I will be posting videos at random, and always let you know here when I've put a new one up.  The bonus for me is, it usually takes FOREVER to download a video on blogger...drives me crazy.  I posted this video on You Tube...only a couple minutes and it's all done.  I click share, and instantly it posted to my blog...GOTTA LOVE THAT!

I will still be blogging about normal stuff as well.  If you could do me a huge favor, click over to YouTube from this video (at the bottom where it says YouTube) and it will take you to the site.  When you get there, you can watch the video, and if you want to see what else I've uploaded, click where it says TeriGigi and it will be on my official channel page.  I would LOVE it if you would subscribe.  I'm not sure how to get subscribers and I only have ONE... my daughter who got me into this in the first place!  This all started yesterday, so I've only uploaded a few videos, some of which you've seen if you've been reading my blog awhile.  You can always watch the video here by just hitting the play arrow.

So this is my new adventure. Kinda silly, but kinda fun as well.  It may last a week, a month, or longer. I have no idea...that's what makes it an adventure ;)

P.S. If you are reading/watching on a mobile device, the video box will look different than I've described.  Also, I realized after I posted this, that I do have other videos on my channel that I have not put on my blog.  If you want to go there and check it out, click here.

Teri... this is fabulous ... I have been having that same feeling looking at my legs ... I'm definitely going out to try this!!! I like Olay skin care products ... good luck with the You Tube venture ... all things start somewhere ...xo HHL

seashoreknits said...

OK, Teri, I am rather new to your blog and haven't (I don't believe) ever commented before. But I hopped right on over and subscribed to your new youtube videos because (1) I am so proud of you for doing this! (2) I am around your age also and have often lamented the lack of good product reviews for women our age and (3) since I'm also a Teri I decided I'm on board with whatever you do! :)

Congrats! I am really enjoying the videos so far and thanks for the endorsement for the Olay bodywash!

Adrienne said...

Hi! I am new to your lovely blog. You are gorgeous! Thank you for the product info. And although I do not use body wash, I may have to give this stuff a try.

I love your videos!! Everyone needs to go to your youtube channel and subscribe. You have put up so many videos already and I love everyone of them. You are so funny and creative.

Mya said...

Teri, this sounds like an endeavour made for you, and as you said who knows where it will go.
Have been to YouTube and as soon as this non-tech gal figures it out I will sign up (yes, I know it is not difficult, but this gal always does something wrong).

You totally sold me! I am going to give it a try, my legs definitely could use some help...haha! Happy weekend to you! xxoo

I'm sold! Sounds like a great investment for $10 and if it will help these legs of mine, I'm all for it. I can tell I'm going to enjoy these videos of yours! You go, girl!
