my very first haul video

posted on: October 8, 2010

I was first introduced to Haul videos by the YouTube obessed Kisekae last year. She encouraged me to try one, but I was just so timid about doing it. I looove posing for a camera, but as soon as someone points a video camera in my face I freeze up and don't know what to do with myself!

I compare it to Chandler on Friends when he has to pose for pictures...

But, last night I went shopping with my co-worker and when I got home felt like giving this haul business a try. This was my first attempt, after pretending to talk to the camera for about 10 minutes to calm myself down (really, if someone had seen me they'd think I was crrrazy). My voice sounds a little bit strange, especially when I say "s", but that's what I get for using a digital cam to make a video.

Hope you enjoy the video, let me know what you think!


  1. Great job! Love the lip color, you are so adorable :) Now we have inverted sheer polka dot tops! And definitely wear the shorts and top together, it will look fab!
    What nail polish are you wearing?

  2. Awesome job! You are very natural and well spoken in front of the camera. There is nothing worse than watching a 16 min. haul video full of "ummms" and "likes".

    I plan on posting vlogs in the near future as well. I've learned that the perfect length is between 4 and 6 min. so yours is right on the mark.

    Oh! And I love the top and shorts. Very cute!

  3. You are too cute! Great job on your first haul video. Still much too timid myself to do one, so props! Plus, I also picked up the H&M socks after seeing Solo Lisa's video haha

  4. awwwws. those shorts are adorable.

  5. You're adorable and hilarious! The shorts are such a cute find. I have one of Sephora's lipsticks and I agree, it's a great deal and the quality of the lipstick isn't too shabby, but it does dry my lips out a bit so I have to wear lip balm underneath and on top.

  6. Very cute! I'm a little envious... I don't think I could ever act that natural in front of the camera! I would definitely like to see more of these :) also where is that fabulous nail polish from that you were wearing? love it!

  7. LOL Alicia you are so cute! I love the haul video! more more! The sheer black blouse with the polka dots is definitely very versatile and I say try it with the shorts, why not? I think you can definitely make that outfit work. Great buys from Sephora as well. And yeah, who'd a thought we'd be wearing socks with sandals and calling it a trend? I sure as hell didn't.

    Yay congrats on your first haul video! You're a natural ;)

    Have a great Thanksgiving long weekend! xo

  8. Amazing job! The camera loves you! I really like that sheer blouse, I so cannot pull off the shorts and tights thing, but I might go and search out that top!

    Love your hair too by the way, looks so nice and thick!

  9. Yay you did one! Great job cousin.

  10. OMYGOD. You're adorable! Those shorts are hella cute. Can't wait to see them paired. I think you can totally pull it off!

  11. Ah loved it!
    I'll have to go to H&M soon to pick up some scarves and what not.

    Excellent video! I hope you do more.


  12. You did a great job Alicia. Hope to see more of it.

    Have a good long weekend :)

  13. You are way too adorable! You're a natural in front of the camera, I don't know why you were so worried! Great buys, I love the Sephora lip colour and I also have the cute little socks from H&M!

  14. Woot! Woot! Love your haul video. Keep it up!

    I'm craving a shopping trip. And new lipstick.


  15. Love the haul video - post some more!

    I officially need to try some of Sephora's lipstick. I always find gems from their own line.

  16. Do more haul videos! Do more! Super cute things you bought. I'm loving the lip colour too.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  17. Such a great video.You are totally cute and I love your style! I envy your confidence and presence infront of the camera. I attempted a video, but luckily for me (and possible viewers) the video won't load on blogger.

    The printed H&M shorts are great. H&M is awesome but I have to travel 2+ hours to get to the closest on (in Montreal).

  18. long time creeper, first time commenter (woow... that was so nerdy)

    Although I probably wouldn't make one myself, watching hauls videos are my guilty pleasure. Yours was great!! Informing and charming. Hope you do more in the future :) Even tutorials.


  19. I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the amazing feedback. I seriously have the BEST readers & commenters ever :) For those of you who asked, my nail polish is American Apparel 'Mouse'. I will definitely try to do more of these videos, thanks to you my lovelies. Many x's and o's!!!
