Over the past six years, I’ve made thirty four different “How To” videos ranging from how to find your perfect shade of red lipstick to making dog “pupcakes” to every type of braid under the sun (fishtail, rope, French, and milkmaid). You voted, I chose for you, we all learned a lot. Let’s call that a win/win.
And even when you weren’t learning to make bunny ears or flirt like a pro, I was behind the scenes teaching myself how to write, film, edit, and publish these videos. When I lost my live in camera man, I figured out how to become a one woman production studio. It was sometimes fun, often times challenging, all the time a learning experience. Patience, problem solving, and lots of deep breathing got me through infuriating technical glitches and unfortunate rookie mistakes.
While I certainly can run my own operation, there’s that little phrase, “I get by with a little help from my friends.” I’ve been so blessed to have come into contact with some truly extraordinary individuals in my lifetime and I’m even more fortuitous to call many of those people my friends and mentors.
Having edited the compilation video below, I grew awfully sick of staring at my own face and realized that perhaps you had too. That’s when I recruited a few of my friends who are gifted in their own rights to come in and cohost “How To Tuesday” with me. Pastry chefs, TV correspondents, health and wellness experts, hairstylists, and beauty wizards are only a few of the slew of talented humans who you will teach you “how to.”
So, brace yourselves, because we’re back and always keep in mind that everyone you meet has something they can teach.
Don’t forget to tell me what you’d like to learn “how to” in future episodes in the comments.
